Hemp Gummies VS CBD Gummies: Our Top Picks
You’ve probably heard the term “edibles” and you probably associate edibles with things like gummy candy or bliss balls or chocolate.
But you might be wondering, what’s the difference between CBD edibles and hemp edibles? Or you may be asking, what even is hemp? Or how do I choose the top hemp gummies and/or top CBD gummies?
Don’t worry, we’re here to help!
What’s The Difference Between CBD Edibles and Hemp Edibles?
While both CBD edibles and hemp edibles are derived from the same plant, there are some key differences between the two, which means there is a range of factors to consider when choosing between hemp and CBD gummies and other edibles.
Hemp edibles are made from the seeds of the hemp plant. These seeds are rich in protein, fibre, nutrients and healthy fats, which makes them a popular ingredient for a lot of health foods. You find hemp seeds as an ingredient in protein bars, mueslis and cereal products and even hemp milk. Hemp powder is also a protein supplement popular in the bodybuilding community, especially among vegan and plant-based bodybuilders.
Hemp edibles do not contain CBD or any other cannabinoids, so they don’t have the same therapeutic effects as CBD edibles. Because hemp seeds are jam-packed with nutrients, they’re a great addition to a healthy diet.
CBD edibles are made using cannabidiol (CBD), a compound found in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. CBD is known for a range of health and therapeutic benefits, such as pain relief (including chronic pain), reducing anxiety, alleviating irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, adjusting hormonal imbalances and treating insomnia. CBD edibles come in various forms such as gummy candy, chocolate, baked goods and even honey.
At Down To Earth, we only sell CBD edibles because there are numerous benefits from taking CBD oil, whether full or broad spectrum or isolate.
CBD Edibles: full spectrum, broad spectrum and CBD isolate
Now we understand the difference between hemp and CBD and how they can be used, let’s take a look at the range of CBD edibles.
CBD edibles can be made using full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate.
Full-spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp plant, including THC. Broad-spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp plant except for THC. CBD isolate contains only pure CBD oil.
There are differences between the effects between the three types of CBD. Full-spectrum CBD edibles can produce the entourage effect, which occurs when the various cannabinoids and terpenes work together to enhance the therapeutic effects of CBD. However, full-spectrum CBD edibles can contain trace amounts of THC, which could result in a positive drug test. Broad-spectrum and CBD isolate edibles do not contain THC and are therefore a safer choice for people who need to undergo drug testing.
At Down To Earth, we have a great range of CBD edibles, ranging from gummies to chocolate and even honey! Our range includes full-spectrum, broad-spectrum and CBD isolate edibles.
Down To Earth’s Gummies
Down To Earth’s CBD gummies are delicious and come in a range of tangy fruit flavours. They’re also 100% vegan, gluten free and lactose free, so they’re perfect for people with irritable bowel syndrome and those on plant-based diets.
Oh, and did we mention that they’re also free from artificial colours and flavours?
Our Entourage gummies are full-spectrum gummies from the famous US hemp strain called Blue Dream. As a full-spectrum gummy, Entourage means you get all the benefits of the entourage effect.
The entourage effect in full-spectrum CBD edibles occurs when all the cannabinoids, terpenes and other plant compounds work together to enhance the therapeutic effects of CBD. When taking a full-spectrum CBD product, these compounds can have a more significant impact on the body than CBD isolate alone. The Entourage effect is believed to be the result of cannabinoids and terpenes interacting with each other and amplifying each other’s effects.
Entourage gummies also taste delicious, with tangy fruit flavours. Enjoy the benefits of full-spectrum CBD in a delicious and convenient gummy.
OG Kush Gummies
Our OG Kush gummy is a THC-free edible. But the great news is that, while it’s THC free, you can still enjoy the benefits of the entourage effect because OG Kush contains CBD, or cannabigerol.
Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. CBG is considered a minor cannabinoid, as it is typically present in lower concentrations than other cannabinoids like CBD and THC. CBG interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) and has therapeutic benefits including inflammation and anxiety.
CBG is also being studied for its potential in treating conditions such as glaucoma and inflammatory bowel disease.
While both hemp gummies and CBD gummies offer various benefits, hemp edibles are more of a nutritional supplement while CBD gummies offer a range of therapeutic benefits such as pain relief and alleviating anxiety.
