CBD products are showing up in medicine cabinets across America, and while this increasingly popular cannabinoid is available in a diverse array of products, there’s one delivery method that’s proven unexpectedly popular with consumers—CBD gummies.
With the CBD industry—and the market for CBD products—maturing swiftly, companies like Every Day Optimal are looking for every opportunity to stay ahead of the curve. That includes rethinking some of their most popular products, including their CBD gummies. So why are they looking at new ways to approach such a popular product?
What’s Appealing About CBD Gummies
In many ways, gummy supplements contain the same ingredients as classic gummy candies—gelatin, sugar, and a little bit of added flavor. In addition to these basic ingredients, companies like Every Day Optimal add a little extra CBD extract to their CBD gummies. Derived from hemp cannabis plants, this extract is high in cannabidiol, or CBD, and contains less than 0.3% THC, making it legal for products sold online and delivered coast to coast.
“We want to offer customers more choice ,” says Alex Gould, co-founder and CEO of Every Day Optimal. “We are currently expanding our gummy line substantially to give our community more options, and in some ways healthier options. We are releasing a sugar free gummy, a vegan gummy, a broad-spectrum gummy, and also updating our classic gummy bear shape to something more grown up.”
Flavor isn’t the only selling point for CBD gummies, though. Every Day Optimal also sees gummies as a great way to ensure consumers get the dose of CBD they’re looking for without having to measure out a tincture or guess at how much of a topical they’re applying. And since gummies are so familiar, they make it easy for consumers to keep their CBD consumption subtle, no matter what their reason.
Our top pick, Royal CBD is a California-based brand selling premium CBD products from organic hemp. The company offers only one potency and flavor option of their gummies (10 mg, Fruit Punch), but the formula seems mastered to perfection.
The answer: no, as long as they are sourced from hemp. Hemp-derived products contain less than 0.3% THC, which is not enough to get the user high.
Most gummies contain between 10–30 mg of CBD per piece, resulting in nice relaxation without excessive drowsiness. Many users end up taking more than one gummy at a time, but the optimal dosage is determined by a range of factors, such as the individual’s weight, age, metabolism, expected effects and whether it’s their first time with CBD.
Since this is an isolate-based product, Royal CBD gummies have a pleasant, fruity taste, without the overwhelming botanical notes carried over from full-spectrum extracts. These are organic gummies, so they are priced a little bit higher than the competition, but still within reason.
Additionally, CBDfx also offers its low-potency gummies in eight-count packages as well as mix-and-match bundles for those who are still hesitating on which formula and flavor to choose.
