What Are the Benefits of CBD Gummies?

Studies in both animals and humans show that a regular dose of CBD can be beneficial to the mind and body. With full spectrum CBD gummies, you get a full spectrum of the cannabinoids featured in the hemp plant. These cannabinoids, notably CBD and THC, work with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), a system that helps bring other bodily systems into homeostasis. Here are some benefits of CBD gummies: 

Everyday stresses

Life was stressful before the pandemic. Certainly, COVID and the environment surrounding it have heightened the stress of even the most laid back people. When stress becomes chronic, it can result in pain and inflammation. How do we combat this cycle of stress?

There are many natural ways to reduce stress, such as exercise, meditation, and movement. But some stress-relieving tactics, like using alcohol and tobacco, can have serious negative health and lifestyle effects. Even some medications traditionally prescribed for stress reduction can become harmful or addictive over time.

A dose of CBD gummies added to your daily routine can support a healthy stress response. Human studies show that the effects of CBD interacting with your body’s ECS can be extraordinary. 

Muscles and joints

Inflammation can be destructive to the body in a number of ways. Physical stress from exercise or strenuous working conditions can cause inflammation in muscles and joints. CBD gummies may help alleviate some of the pain associated with exercise-induced strain on your muscles and joints. CBD applied topically may help as well.

Emotional stress can cause inflammation, too. Over time, this inflammation can become chronic and may cause the body to be more susceptible to disease. Based on anecdotal reports and a growing body of scientific evidence from clinical trials and animal studies, CBD gummies may help support your good mental health.

A sense of calm

Certain life events can trigger stress responses, whether it’s being called into your boss’s office, potty training your child, or taking an exam unprepared. CBD gummies may help soothe your stress response during an isolated event like these. Taking CBD on a regular basis has been said to provide balance between the highs and lows of daily life. This balance will provide the calm needed to enjoy your day and focus on what truly matters.

One of the main potential benefits of CBD gummies is that CBD may help to naturally help with your stress without the potential risk associated with anxiety medications or self medicating with alcohol or drugs.

Relaxation before bedtime

CBD gummies do not put you to sleep like narcotics or over-the-counter or prescription sleep medications. Instead, they work by setting the stage to help your body fall asleep naturally. That’s why CBD may help nurture and support healthy sleep cycles. Just as regular doses of CBD gummies can help bring you a sense of calmness, they can relax you before bed.

Full spectrum CBD gummies include THC and all of the other associated cannabinoids in the hemp plant. These cannabinoids all work together to bring about a “chill vibe”– all you need is a pillow and a comfy blanket (and hopefully a cuddly pet), and you’re ready for bed. 

Are there side effects of CBD?

Getting benefits from CBD comes at a very low risk because when using CBD gummies alone there are few side effects. You cannot overdose on CBD. But there is a small risk of CBD drug interactions that may cause unwanted side effects. Always check with your healthcare provider or pharmacist if you are taking medication before adding CBD to your routine. 

Generally, human studies show that using a standard dose of CBD gummies is a very safe option. The only side effects documented for high CBD amounts is upset stomach and possibly diarrhea. Dry mouth may occur. Some people think drowsiness is a side effect of CBD, but in many cases it’s the desired effect. CBD dosage is based on body weight and metabolism, but the best way to know what size dose of CBD to take is to start low and build your way up.  

Whether it’s everyday stressors or surprise jolts of stress, CBD gummies have you covered. They can help relieve muscle pain from exercise, and support good mental health. And they can even help you get a good night’s sleep.
