Earlier, we mentioned that we pharmaceutically coat ZenBears with CBD, rather than mixing it in. We do this because we’ve found that coating improves speed and absorption. More of the CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream from your mouth, which means it gets to work faster, and you don’t lose quite as much through digestion.
CBD gummies are eaten just like regular sweets. Some of the CBD is absorbed into your bloodstream through the blood vessels in your mouth, and the rest is absorbed via your digestive system and liver.
But how much CBD do you need, and how many CBD gummies should you be taking to get it? And how much is too much? We’ll answer those questions and a couple more below…
How long do CBD gummies take to start working?

To make ZenBears CBD gummies, we first make delicious gummy bears using vegan ingredients and all-natural flavourings. Some brands mix CBD directly into their gummies, but we prefer to supercharge ours with a pharmaceutical CBD coating (more on that later!).
If you’re taking several small doses a day, it can be easy to lose track of how much CBD you’ve had. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends that adults take no more than 70mg of CBD daily (for reference, that would be 3.5 ZenBears). We’re not aware of any dangers from taking a higher daily dose, but you should still be mindful of how much CBD you’re taking overall.
There’s no universal “ideal” dose of CBD. If you’re new to CBD, start low at around 10mg, see how you feel, and slowly build up to the dose that feels best for you.
In this guide, we’re going to answer the question “How many CBD gummies should I eat?” We’ll also help you understand the benefits of CBD and why the investment is worth it!
In December 2018, the Farm Bill was introduced. This made CBD derived from hemp legal nationwide, opening up the doors for businesses to market CBD products of all different kinds. One of the most popular products is CBD gummies.
How Much CBD to Take
Now that you know how much CBD to take, you’ll also need to know how to dose it correctly. If you’re eating a gummy or pill, the dosage is typically given per serving. Gummies are more versatile because you’ll be able to break them in half or in several pieces of you don’t want the whole dosage.
You can also figure out the number of milliliters per drop. Then you can calculate how many drops are in a bottle by dividing that number by the total number of milliliters in the bottle.
Remember that it may also take up to two months to feel differently from the dosage you’re taking, even if it’s the correct amount. It’s important that you remain patient and temper your expectations, as taking CBD may not be a quick way to eliminate your pain, stress, or anxiety.
