Discover the Sweet Side of Wellness: What Are CBD Gummies and How Can They Benefit You?
What Are CBD Gummies?
CBD gummies are a popular form of cannabidiol (CBD) that combine the therapeutic effects of CBD with the delicious taste of sweet gummies.
CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis plants and is well known for its potential health benefits.
CBD gummies are often used to promote relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate mild pain, improve sleep quality, and provide a general sense of well-being. They are also favoured by those who prefer a more tasty and enjoyable method of CBD consumption compared to other forms like CBD oils and drinks. CBD has an acquired taste, hence why CBD gummies are so popular!
What’s in A CBD Gummy?
CBD gummies are typically made by mixing a CBD extract with a gummy base and flavouring. It’s always important to check that the CBD gummies you are buying are made with natural flavourings. The CBD extract is derived from hemp plants, which are a variety of cannabis plants with low levels of THC, the psychoactive compound. This means that CBD gummies do not produce a “high” effect. Most gummies are THC-free, which means you can’t get high on them! This is another reason to always buy CBD gummies from a reputable retailer, so you can see the full lab reports if required. You can then also check the quality and the content of the CBD being used.
CBD gummies come in all shapes, sizes, flavours and strengths. There are CBD gummy bears, CBD gummy pastels, there are even CBD gummy monkeys! The important thing when looking for a good quality CBD gummy is what’s inside the CBD gummy. There is no point in buying something that looks good but isn’t effective.
What Strengths Do CBD Gummies Come In?
hapihemp CBD gummies come in two strengths – 10mg and 25mg. They are popular because they offer a discreet and familiar way to consume CBD, especially for those who may not prefer the taste or texture of other CBD products like oils or capsules. Plus, if you have a sweet tooth, it’s a great healthy way to get your sugar fix each day!
The 10mg CBD gummy is a good starting point and is fine for a lot of people. You can take more than one CBD gummy a day, as long as you do not exceed 70mg of CBD a day. If you find you are taking 2-3+ gummies a day, then it would be more cost-effective for you to purchase the higher strength next time.
The high-strength 25mg CBD gummies are suitable for someone who has had CBD and feels like they want something stronger. Again, you can take more than one gummy a day.
How Do CBD Gummies Work?
When a CBD gummy is consumed, CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays a vital role in regulating various bodily functions such as pain perception, mood, sleep, and immune response. Many people use CBD gummies to potentially alleviate stress, promote relaxation, support sleep quality, and manage mild discomfort.
It’s important to choose high-quality CBD gummies from reputable retailers to ensure they contain accurate CBD content and are free from harmful contaminants. With CBD gummies you also need to check the ingredients, so you are not having a mouthful of sugar each day. Reputable CBD retailers will have transparent lab reports available on their websites, so again – always check before you buy. If you are unsure, you can consult with a healthcare professional before starting any CBD products, especially if you have specific health concerns or are taking other medications. More and more doctors now are much more open and educated about using CBD for many different reasons. In fact, the MCCS have now put together a list of the top 20 CBD retailers in the UK, that doctors can refer to. hapihemp is extremely proud to be on this list!

What are CBD Gummies Made Out of?
CBD gummies are typically made by combining CBD extract or CBD oil with various ingredients to create the gummy base. The exact composition of CBD gummies can vary depending on the manufacturer, but some common ingredients include:
The main active ingredient, cannabidiol (CBD), is derived from hemp plants and is added to provide potential health benefits.
Gelatine or Pectin
These ingredients provide a gummy texture and consistency. Gelatine is commonly used in traditional gummies, while pectin is used for vegan or vegetarian options.
Gummies are usually sweetened to enhance the taste. Common sweeteners include sugar, corn syrup, or natural alternatives like agave syrup or fruit juice concentrates.
Various natural or artificial flavourings are added to give the gummies their desired taste. This can include fruit Flavors like strawberry, cherry, or citrus, among others.
Gummies may contain colouring agents to enhance their appearance. These can be natural or artificial food colourings.
Some CBD gummies may include additional ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, or herbal extracts to provide additional benefits or enhance the product’s appeal.
Our CBD gummies are flavoured with Natural Flavourings: Apple, Strawberry, and Pineapple.

Additionally, if you have specific dietary requirements or restrictions, be sure to check for vegan, vegetarian, or allergen-friendly options.

How Is CBD Put Into A Gummy?
An extremely important factor to check when purchasing CBD gummies is whether they are infused or coated with CBD as there is a big difference!
CBD Coated Gummies
CBD-coated gummies only have CBD on the outermost layer of the gummy, this is achieved either by rolling the gummies in a CBD or spraying the gummies with CBD. This method comes with a couple of important issues.
When CBD is only on the outer layer of the gummies, the active CBD is more easily exposed to things such as light, heat, and moisture which can decrease the life of the CBD which means you no longer have an accurate dosage anymore and this defeats the main reason you are buying them in the first place.
Also, when a CBD gummy is coated with CBD, there is a good chance that much of the CBD will come off in the packaging or in your hand. As you can imagine it’s the same with anything that is lightly coated that hasn’t been sealed in. With CBD gummies there isn’t a way to seal the CBD coating in.
Most coated gummies are thrown into a mixture of sugar and CBD, and this really isn’t a beneficial way to make good quality, long-lasting CBD gummies.
CBD Infused Gummies
With a CBD gummy that has been infused with CBD – the active CBD has been incorporated into the ingredients rather than just sprayed on.
CBD-infused gummies are made with much more care and the CBD is blended inside the CBD gummy during the process of making the gummy itself instead of just adding it on top afterwards.
Each CBD gummy has premium CBD added to the gummies after the other ingredients are heated to melting point and are waiting to be cooled and set. This is a much better way of producing CBD gummies because the CBD is throughout the entire gummy instead of the outer layer. This means you can’t rub the CBD off.
This gives the CBD much better protection from heat, moisture, and light, which in turn preserves the life of the CBD.
So, you know exactly what dose of CBD you are getting with each CBD gummy. You are getting a CBD gummy that is not only good value for money but a CBD gummy that is highly effective too.
So, let’s just recap on all of the above …
CBD gummies are a popular form of cannabidiol (CBD) product that combines the therapeutic benefits of CBD with the convenience and enjoyable taste of a sweet gummy.
CBD is a non-intoxicating compound derived from the cannabis plant known for its potential health and wellness benefits. CBD gummies are typically made by infusing CBD extract into a gummy, providing a discreet and easy way to consume CBD.
Remember that CBD gummies contain CBD, but they do not contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound found in cannabis responsible for the “high” sensation. As a result, CBD gummies are generally considered non-intoxicating and are unlikely to cause euphoria or impairment when consumed within the recommended dosage.
And last but certainly not least…! Always check that you are buying from a reputable CBD retailer. You couldn’t believe how many people buy health products off social media and don’t even check the retailer’s website, or even if they have one!
With any CBD product – check there are transparent lab reports, also their customer support, as many people have questions about CBD.
