Frequently Asked Questions About CBD Gum
Common questions about CBD gum
As there isn’t masses of information on CBD gum out there, we have put together a little collection of questions that are frequently asked. If you are confused about CBD gum, the laws surrounding it and how it differs from other products, then you will find your answer here.
Can CBD gum get you high?
The simple answer to this is no - CBD by itself will not make you feel high. It is only when it is combined with THC in cannabis or marijuana that it can lead to this feeling. THC affects the parts of your brain that deal with coordination, thinking and time perception that results in your mind feeling fuzzy.
In the UK, it is illegal to sell products that contain THC levels of over 0.2% so any reputable CBD gum products will not have enough THC in them to make you feel high.
Is CBD gum illegal?
Similarly to the answer above, CBD products are only illegal if they are sold with more than 0.2% of THC in them and without a license.
CBD is not illegal because it is not thought to radically alter your mind or result in long-term addiction, meaning it is a safer way to still experience the benefits without the danger of becoming dependent on it.
Can CBD gum actually help me?
It can be difficult to answer this as the benefits of CBD gum can vary from person-to-person. However, there have been studies into the positive effects CBD has on people who are living with mental conditions such as anxiety or PTSD, those with joint pain or individuals who are looking to get rid of inflammation.
How environmentally friendly is CBD gum?
CBD gum is environmentally friendly when it is made using biodegradable, organic or ethically-sourced ingredients. This means that when you are finished with the gum, you can simply pop it into your bin and it will naturally break down over time.
Will CBD gum freshen my breath or keep my teeth clean?
A lot of CBD gum is flavoured with mint that is designed to not only taste delicious but to make your breath minty-fresh too. The act of chewing gum can also knock off any food particles that are clinging to your teeth as well, helping to keep them clean.
What’s the best way to take CBD?
Depending on your expectations, needs and overall lifestyle, there will be different CBD products that will suit you. If you want quick results and a discreet manner of taking CBD, then gum would be perfect for you. It allows you to simply chew on a piece of gum and within 10 minutes, you may start noticing the benefits.
However, if you would rather something that takes a longer time to start working but lasts a bit longer, then you will probably be interested in capsules. They take longer to get into your bloodstream (up to 2 hours) but the effects can last for almost 4 hours.
