Let’s tackle the question: “What are the benefits of CBD gummies?” With the federal legalization of hemp in the 2018 Farm bill, cannabis is no longer on the fringe, it’s in the news. A dazzling array of products containing CBD are coming to market — everything from CBD-infused gummy bears to dog treats. Along with the products however, there are questions — What are the differences between the compounds in cannabis? Is there any scientific evidence showing a potential benefit of CBD use? Is any one form of consumption better than another? Read on and find out!

What are the benefits of CBD gummies? | Happy Hemp CBD Gummies, Edibles, and more

What is CBD?

Simply put, cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis. 

Cannabis is used as kind of a catch all term for any plant from the cannabis genus. Although there is a genetic difference between hemp (Cannabis Sativa) and what is colloquially known as marijuana (Cannabis Indica), all three terms are used interchangeably but there are big differences between them. 

CBD won’t get you high and hemp-derived CBD is federally legal in all 50 states (with a few individual states opting to keep it inaccessible) whereas products containing more than .03 percent THC have varying degrees of legality. Found predominantly in cannabis indica, THC is the compound that IS responsible for getting you high. Together CBD and THC, along with over a hundred other compounds, are known as cannabinoids.

There is mounting evidence that cannabinoids are useful in the treatment of various health conditions from multiple sclerosis to cancer, even less serious conditions like acne. After decades of heavily restricted access to cannabis, scientists are starting studies and trials and the results have been promising. 


Is there any scientific evidence for using CBD Gummies?

Benefits of CBD Gummies for pain

Anecdotal stories of using CBD gummies for pain are supported by studies like this one that concluded cannabinoids have a role in managing difficult to treat pain. The study looked at Sativex Ⓡ, along with other synthetic cannabinoids. Sativex Ⓡ is an FDA approved treatment for neuropathic pain in MS and for cancer pain but it is important to note that it uses THC and CBD in a 1:1 proportion. Another study explored how  cannabinoids can help treat neuropathic pain, concluding that cannabinoids may also help in reducing inflammatory pain. 

A large case series found compelling evidence for using CBD in treating sleep disturbances. After one month of treatment with CBD, sixty-six percent of participants experienced a betterment in the quality of sleep with a reported fifty-six percent still reporting improvement after two months. 


Benefits of CBD gummies for anxiety

The same case series found CBD may also help with anxiety. Approximately eighty percent of subjects experienced a reduction in overall anxiety levels after one month of treatment and after two months, seventy-eight percent still reported the treatment was effective.

While we’re talking about anxiety, there are other studies that document CBD’s potential in managing stress caused by public speaking. While relatively high doses of CBD were used (from 300-900mg), both self-reports of stress and scientific measures of stress (sweaty palms, heart rate),were decreased in subjects receiving CBD treatment. 


Benefits of CBD gummies for nausea

A particularly well documented potential benefit of CBD is in the regulation and treatment of nausea. Throughout studies with both animals and humans, chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting responses are reduced with CBD treatment. Interestingly, the researchers themselves reported that patients reported a preference for natural cannabinoids over the synthetic ones.


Why use CBD gummies?

Although no studies specifically use CBD gummies as their method of delivery, many people prefer to eat their CBD. Here are our favorite reasons for giving CBD gummies a try. 

  • They won’t get you high. You won’t have to contend with side effects like paranoia or confusion so you can fully relax. As delightful as our CBD gummy bears are, they won’t have you giggling from a head change.

  • They’re tasty, sometimes it really is just that simple.

  • Easy dosing. With clearly marked strengths, ranging from 250mg to 3,000mg per container, it’s easy to decide your dose. Each containing around 10-12mg, our sour gummy worms are a delicious and quick way to nibble your desired dose of CBD. 

  • Edibles may last longer than inhalation. Since the compounds go through the digestion process they have a longer onset time but being metabolized by the liver is a slower process — meaning your gummy may also last hours longer than a pull on a vape pen. 

  • Some are one hundred percent vegetarian, like our chewy rainbows, so you can indulge guilt free. 

  • They’re discreet. No one will notice you popping a peach ring into your mouth the next time you’re feeling anxious in public so you can consume on the go with zero fear of any lingering stigma about vaping.

  • No coughing fits, there is zero chance of them irritating your lungs.


Are there side effects of using CBD gummies?

One common thread throughout dozens of studies is that CBD use is generally very well tolerated. The most commonly reported side effects were tiredness and changes in appetite or weight. Whether or not those are detrimental to you depends on why you are considering taking CBD in the first place. Researchers were careful to state that studies looking at chronic, long-term use are necessary to determine what, if any, side effects come with continual use. 


Benefits of Happy Hemp CBD gummies

We don’t want to brag so we’ll let others do it for us. Happy Hemp CBD gummies have been listed on “best of” lists by Forbes, LAWeekly, and Health MJ. They all recognize the quality, consistency, and great selection of our brand. LAWeekly noted “ Happy Hemp knows where it’s at for CBD users, relaying the best in taste, dosage, and variety.” We take the praise to heart as we strive to be an industry leader in CBD gummies, as well as other CBD products. 

If and how you want to consume your CBD is a personal decision but we hope you consider our CBD gummies when you do — they are easy to use and delicious!

An $867 billion farm bill that was passed in Congress December of 2018 will fund food stamps, crop subsidies and—to the glee of many stock promoters—legalize industrial hemp, a source of the popular ingredient cannabidiol, or CBD. Brace yourself for CBD-infused drinks, foods, candy and cosmetics.

The most significant impact of the farm bill will be its funding of 10 more years of farm subsidies. But hitching a ride on the farm bill wagon are provisions that decriminalize hemp. Technically speaking, hemp has been a controlled substance under federal law and could only be grown with a license under certain state research programs. The new farm bill will allow hemp cultivation without a license in every state.

Hemp has lots of CBD, but little of the buzzy ingredient known as THC that makes the plant’s cousin marijuana so popular at parties. In fact, the main difference between the two plants is their respective levels of CBD and THC. Marijuana will remain illegal under federal law, regardless of its legality under local law in dozens of states.

Cannabidiol (CBD) Properties
Products with a little bit of CBD as a “food additive” have been available for a while from small outfits such as the yet-unprofitable New Age Beverages (NBEV). With the farm bill assuring the federal legality of hemp production and distribution, big firms may now start putting CBD as a “functional” additive in drinks—along the lines of Coca-Cola ’s Vitaminwater.

Canadian cannabis leaders such as Aurora Cannabis (ACB) have long harbored hemp ambitions, and beverage giants such as Coca-Cola (KO) and PepsiCo (PEP) may finally make their long-rumored entries into the CBD-drink space. Cannaccord Genuity analyst Bobby Burleson estimates that CBD-infused beverages could become a $260 million market by 2022.

Fans of CBD have also touted the stuff as a panacea for anxiety, pain, and even inflammation. Another benefit of the farm bill’s passage should be an increase in the scientific testing of cures claimed for CBD and the hundred-odd other cannabinoids in hemp and cannabis. In the past few years, the FDA has sent warning letters to marketers of CBD-based products that the agency said were making unapproved drug claims, or which didn’t contain the levels of CBD advertised. In a 2017 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers analyzed CBD products from 31 companies and found that 70% didn’t contain the labeled amounts of CBD.

One of the recipients of an October 2017 warning letter from the FDA was a Boulder, Colo., company that is one of the rare cannabis or hemp businesses that makes a profit. Charlotte’s Web Holdings came public this year on the Canadian Securities Exchange and sells CBD-rich oils in 3,000 retail locations. It earned $9 million, or 10 cents a share, on revenue of $48 million in the nine months ended September 2018.

The FDA’s October 2017 warning letter scolded Charlotte’s Web for its website, where visitors at the time could find discussions of CBD as a treatment for breast cancer and diabetes. The agency argued that Charlotte’s Web was obliged to test its product as a drug. In recent investor presentations, Charlotte’s Web says that it disagrees, but “is still in active discussion with the FDA” and has yet to resolve the agency’s concerns.

On the CSE, shares of Charlotte’s Web (CWEB.Canada) have climbed nearly 50% in the past week, to a current price of 16 Canadian dollars apiece. The company and other marketers of hemp-derived CBD think the farm bill will lift a cloud from their industry. The bill’s passage will be “a catalyst for growth,” Charlotte’s Web CEO Hess Moallem said in his company’s recent earnings release.

“We have contributed to and support this important legislation from the beginning,” said Moallem, “for the positive impact it will have on consumer access.”

If you only know three letters associated with cannabis, they’re probably T-H-C. But there’s another term on the rise. The active ingredient CBD, one of more than 100 chemicals in cannabis, is emerging as a popular wellness ingredient. The plant extract, often consumed as an oil under the tongue, is now the featured ingredient in high-end products including coconut oil, body lotion, face serum, olive oil, jam, bath scrub, cold-brew coffee, sports salve, lip balm, infused water, gummy snacks and dog treats. Products’ prices vary but may cost about triple what their CBD-less counterparts do.

Unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD (Cannabidiol) won’t get you high, and it’s becoming so mainstream that even Coca-Cola may have interest in a CBD drink.

What is Cannabidiol?
CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical compound – meaning it won’t alter a person’s mental state – that can come from two different cannabis plants: The hemp plant (with less than 0.3 percent THC present) or marijuana plant (where there’s much more psychoactive THC). CBD products tend to be derived from hemp.

There are still plenty of unknowns when it comes to CBD. The FDA has only approved the use of CBD oil in specific cases of epilepsy. Epidiolex, the FDA-approved CBD drug, was placed in the “least restrictive” category of controlled substances by the Drug Enforcement Agency, meaning it’s in the same category with cough medicine Robitussin AC.

Laws surrounding the sale of hemp CBD are murky at best; products made with the cannabinoid are not legal in all 50 states, though the oil is legal in more states than medicinal marijuana.

Even in California, where recreational marijuana consumption is legal for adults 21 and older, there are complicated rules. And yet, even with new guidance on CBD use in food products in the state, the industry continues to grow.

“A lot of states only allow CBD for a limited amount of medical conditions. But they’re not checking the mail, not checking these other companies that are shipping in,” Kristen Yoder, host of podcast CannaBS Detector, said at the first-ever CBD Expo in Anaheim, California. “People are gonna push the envelope until they get in trouble.”

The appeal and drawbacks of CBD
The FDA has approved of the use of CBD to treat Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome, two forms of epilepsy. So what’s the draw of the chemical compound for everyone else?

Pro skateboarder Matt Miller, who started CBD brand Miller Healer, turns to CBD sports salve and patches as his primary medicine. Stacy Verbiest, who founded therapeutic women’s cannabis line Wink with creams and tinctures, says CBD helped her friend manage severe pain. Pet owners buy cat and dog treats with the hopes of helping their best friend feel happier and more comfortable.

Greg Avetisyan is co-founder of the CBD store Topikal Everything Hemp, which just opened a second California location this year. “Though not medically proven, CBD’s main purpose is to help alleviate inflammation,” he said. “So when people use CBD by itself, they’re getting the medicinal benefits of the plant without the psychoactive effects. It treats a lot of different anxieties and pains.”

THC, meanwhile, helps with “pain relief, sleep and opening up the appetite,” Avetisyan says. He and his brother opened Topikal because they prefer treating their conditions – he has rheumatoid arthritis and his brother has anxiety – with just CBD. For them, THC induces paranoia.

Dr. Leeta Jussila, a practitioner of Oriental medicine who specializes in cannabis, says that everyone’s system is different, so the way people absorb CBD differs. She recommends new users consult with health care providers and closely track how small doses of the chemical effect them.

“They could get a headache. Sometimes people say, ‘I feel funny,’ but you’ll never overdose on cannabis. You’ll just start to detox,” she said. “CBD is an oil, fat, lipid. Some people might get diarrhea. I’ve had one person get nausea, dry mouth or dizziness. But it depends on the quality of the product.”

Excited to introduce others to CBD, Eppers watched market trends, talked to hemp farmers and decided to launch a brand-new company featuring his favorite chemical, drink brand Vybes.

The California-based hemp CBD beverage went on the market this January. Eppers projects Vybes will produce 1-1.5 million bottles this year and already has hundreds of retailers selling drinks across the country.
