Did you know that hemp gummies are the most popular hemp-containing foods in Canada? A 2019 study found that 48% of likely food consumers would choose gummies. This is not difficult to be convinced of. Adults like bright delicacies, like ordinary candies for children.
Most food-consuming Canadians choose them because they believe they are safer and easier to use than other ways of consuming cannabis. They are also gaining popularity among medical users who consider them a safe and reliable way to get relief.
Hemp gummies affect your body differently than smoking or vaping. When you smoke or vaporize, cannabinoids can travel directly from your lungs into your bloodstream. You will feel the effect almost immediately.
When you eat foods containing hemp, cannabis enters your digestive system. From there, it is metabolized in the liver before finally entering the bloodstream. This means that the active cannabinoids (THC and CBD) take much longer to affect you.
Since foods that contain hemp take so much longer to affect you, it’s important not to act too quickly, too quickly! Wait at least 90 minutes after taking the first dose to see if you feel any effects. It is easy to overdo it with hemp gummies, especially if you are expecting an immediate high. Instead, wait and you will be rewarded.
People process cannabis foods in different ways. For some, the minimum dose (1-2 mg) will leave you feeling very drunk. Others will need more than 20 mg to feel any effect. Usually 2.5 to 10 mg is an adequate dose for most people.
Why do people love hemp gummies?
Gummies are one of the most popular ways to consume cannabis in Canada. They attract medical and recreational users for many reasons, including:
- They are discreet
Hemp gummies are one of the easiest and most subtle ways to get high. Unlike smoking, you don’t need to learn how to twist the perfect joint. And you don’t need to shell out for any accessories like vaporizer handles, coffee grinders or bongos.
Instead, you can just put some gummies in your pocket and enjoy whenever you want. For medical users, gummies are easy to have on hand when they need relief from pain or anxiety while on the road.
- They are easy to dose
All products containing hemp in Canada must be clearly labeled with THC content. The THC content is indicated on the package in milligrams (mg). The maximum serving size is 10 mg, but this is not necessarily the recommended serving for everyone.
If you’re new to hemp gummy candies, try 2.5 or 5 mg first. You can easily do this by dividing the marmalade in half or in half. Unlike smoking or vaping, you will know exactly how much you have drunk. Getting the right dose of food is very important, so be careful.
3 they are predictable
Another benefit of hemp gummies is that they are very predictable. Of course, each brand will be different, so take a look at the THC and CBD content of the gummies you buy. But if you find a brand that you like, you can be fairly confident that you will experience the same experience every time.
4 they have fewer risks
Many people choose hemp gummies because they don’t like the idea of smoking or vaping. This is an understandable concern, and for those people, hemp gummies can be a great option.
