What Are CBD Gummies?

Think of CBD gummies like the delicious gummy bears you ate as a kid. You can chew the edibles or let them sit on your tongue until they soften and melt. Once ingested, it works its way into the body, and soon after, you’ll feel the wonderful CBD effects.

It may take a while to feel the multiple benefits in your mind and body, so be patient. Remember to start small. CBD products can be potent, and it’s important to know how much you’re comfortable with. Over time, you can increase the amount of CBD you choose to ingest based on your preference and tolerance.

You may wonder if it’s possible to overdose on CBD gummies. It’s practically impossible to overdose on CBD by ingesting gummies. More than anything, it’s because you would have to eat an incredible number of gummies for this to happen. (Honestly, you’d probably poop your pants before you overdosed on CBD gummies.)

CBD gummies are available in many strengths, typically ranging from 5-50mg per gummy. If you need to adjust your dosage, you can divide the gummies into halves, thirds, or quarters for smaller doses.

Dosing for CBD Gummies

When dosing CBD gummies, worms, rings, and other fun shapes, we recommend that a 100-pound user take a 25mg edible twice daily. A 200-pound individual should take one 50mg gummy twice a day.

We can say the same for CBD sleep gummies and sugar-free and vegan gummies. It’s essential to keep in mind when buying CBD candy that you know how many milligrams of CBD are in the candy. Each shape may be a different milligram size.

Don’t forget that while they’re delicious, and you’re unlikely to take too much CBD, it can be uncomfortable to take more than you’re used to, so always start low and if you want higher doses, work your way up over time.

CBD Gummies

What Are THC Gummies?

THC edibles produce the psychoactive high associated with cannabis use. Its potency can vary by product and by state. Most edibles come in dosages of 2.5mg, 5mg, or 10mg THC per serving, with 10 servings in each package. This helps consumers properly dose their experience and establish their relationship with edibles.

For those who enjoy the energizing properties of weed, THC gummies are an excellent option. They’re a brilliant tool for sparking new creative thoughts, focusing on work, or getting inspired by problem-solving.

These gummies are very similar to the other CBD gummies mentioned above. When consuming marijuana gummies with THC, there are many things to consider, especially if it’s your first time. You’ll want to ensure you have all the tools you need to have a safe and happy time because edibles have a more significant physiological impact than smoking, and the high typically lasts much longer.

What Are the Benefits of THC Gummies?

Cannabis oils require precise control of the dose or having a glass of water to facilitate its intake. In contrast, marijuana gummies require neither water nor strict dosage measurement. Just chew the gummy. Take it before going for a walk, before taking a shower, or after a workout. THC gummies are easy and convenient to consume.

They’re also easy to eat quickly, rather than committing to a giant brownie, cookie, or drink. This is especially important if the taste of cannabis puts you off. Most edibles on the market are made so that you can barely taste the plant, but some still have a strong, flowery flavor, making them a bit difficult to consume if you’re sensitive. THC Gummies are deliciously tasty and fruity, and they mask the earthy taste of marijuana.

Cannabis gummies also have a considerably longer shelf life than most commercially available edibles. Gummies last much longer than baked goods; the same goes for infused treats. A marijuana gummy is best if you prefer to keep an edible on hand for a bad day. Just make sure you don’t overdo it, especially if you have a sweet tooth.

If you make your own THC gummies, you can store them in the refrigerator for about a month. In the freezer, you can store THC-infused gummy candies for years. We advise keeping only the amount of THC candies in the fridge that you plan to use in a month. Keep the rest in the freezer.

Always label your CBD and THC products appropriately, and keep them somewhere only you can access.

How to Get High with THC Gummies

If you use cannabis frequently, you could require more THC to get the same impact. Naturally, the opposite may be true. THC gummies with less THC will probably be adequate if you consume cannabis infrequently or never.

When buying THC gummies, the strength of each candy will be listed on the package. Consuming an excessive amount of cannabis or more than you’re used to, can leave you with a negative experience. Always begin with a tiny dose and gradually increase it.

Before you take a bite of an edible, be aware of the amount of THC it contains. THC levels in marijuana edibles are usually a lot higher than in smokable products, which can produce more potent effects.

One cookie, brownie, or piece of candy can contain 5-6 servings, particularly in medicinal edibles. Always check the total milligrams of THC in your gummies, and only eat the recommended amount. Once you’re sure how a particular product affects you and how much, you can slowly increase your dose.

How Long Before I Feel High with a THC Gummy?

You might not feel high for several hours, and its effects might last up to 12 hours. The experience is different for everyone.

When you ingest a THC gummy (or any edible), your body slowly absorbs the cannabis through the digestive system. The psychotropic effect of cannabis edibles is usually delayed for 30-90 minutes. You might not peak until two to three hours after eating a THC gummy, and the effects can last anywhere from four to 12 hours. Talk about bang for your buck!

If you’re new to marijuana or cannabis edibles, you may not feel the effects as quickly as you hope. This could cause you to eat more of the edible, leading to discomfort and stress. THC gummies are a safe and comfortable approach to managing pain and experiencing a pleasant high, but consuming too much can result in anxiety, paranoia, and other unfavorable side effects.

Remember the following:

  • Eat only one THC gummy at a time
  • Know your dose and read the packaging
  • Don’t combine party favors (if you’ve eaten a THC gummy, refrain from smoking a joint, using a THC vape, or drinking alcohol)
  • Don’t drive — plan on staying in one safe place for the duration of your high
  • Keep edibles out of the reach of children and minors (especially if your THC gummies come in cute, bright packaging that could lead to confusion)
  • Skip cannabis in all forms during pregnancy

Edibles are ideal for people who want to enjoy marijuana but don’t want to smoke or dab.

Should I Try THC Gummies?

If you’re trying edibles for the first time, all the options at cannabis dispensaries may seem overwhelming. You’ve got cookies, mints, pretzels, brownies, and gummies, and they’re all from various companies. Plus, everyone’s experiences can vary so much that you end up feeling more anxious than when you walked into the store.

We get it, and to make buying and eating edibles easier, we hope we’ve thoroughly addressed your questions about THC gummies, how long they take to kick in, and how long edibles last.
