Ever since cannabis products (specifically CBD) became legal here in the UK, the number of CBD lovers continues to grow and so are the ways of consuming it. From beverages to tinctures, lotions to sweets and savoury snacks you can find CBD in just about anything. In this post, we want to talk to you about one of the most popular CBD edibles - gummies. Specifically why we think our CBD gummies in vegan are some of the best available in the UK to experience all of the wonderful therapeutic benefits of CBD.
Among such a wide array of cannabis products, CBD edibles like gummies are often preferred as a healthier, more delicious alternative to smoking or vaping.
CBD is derived from hemp (one of the two main plants from the cannabis family, the other is marijuana). In the UK, all CBD products have to be derived from hemp as they do not contain (or very little if they do) THC which is the psychoactive compound that makes you high and which is illegal. CBD alternatively delivers all the therapeutic benefits associated with taking cannabis with none of the high. CBD edibles, like gummies, are made with whatever ingredient you decide: in this case gelatin ( If you are vegan you will want to look for CBD gummies labelled vegan that use an alternative to gelatin), some fruit flavouring and CBD derived from hemp mixed in. All our gummies use no artificial flavouring or additional sugars which is also crucial for making them nutritious and delicious and not unnaturally sweet.
Hemp is known to have rather a bitter earthy taste so CBD edible like gummies are a perfect option to mask the underlying hempiness and disguise it as a yummy chewable treat.
At Paso we sell a range of CBD gummies both vegan and non. Each is made using natural fruit flavouring to give a delicious fresh taste. Our vegan CBD gummies come in a mixed tin of raspberry, pineapple and apple. They are much more of a candy texture coated in sugar like a fruit pastel. Our non-vegan gummies on the other hand are much more similar to a natural fruit snack so less sugary. They come in natural blueberry and apple.
Our non-vegan gummies are 20mg of CBD and our vegan gummies are 10mg. The perfect amount for a light dose to calm you during the day.
We always suggest when eating a CBD edible like gummies to suck rather than chew. This is because CBD edibles tend to take longer for you to feel the effects of the CBD as it has to pass through your digestive system before it is absorbed into the bloodstream. This long journey means that some of the CBD can get lost along the way. By sucking the CBD edible (easier with gummies!) some of the CBD will be absorbed before you swallow via your sublingual artery under your tongue. Meaning that if you can resist the temptation, sucking maximises the amount of CBD that absorbs into your bloodstream.
We truly think our CBD edible gummies are some of the best in the UK, and the experts seem to agree. We have won edible of the year 2019 and 2020 number of industry publications. So try for yourself and see and do let us know what you think!
