Will Eating CBD Gummies Help My Anxiety?

This is an excellent question; I know many people that use CBD with anxiety, stress, and inflammation. CBD has been used for hundreds of years to treat anxiety and stress. In our brains, we have a system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system is responsible for maintaining balance through the body. When you take or use a product with CBD properties in it, they will latch on to those receptors in our brains and help regulate our bodies. There are many opinions that state people who have used CBD to treat anxiety and stress would also similarly benefit from CBD gummies.

What are CBD Gummies?

CBD gummies are just like regular gummies but infused with CBD. You're probably already aware the CBD-based edibles and products come in a variety of different types of products. Examples would be from elixirs, balms, lotions, sweets, brownies, and even honey that has been infused CBD. The most popular ones on the market today are the gummies and the chocolates. Can you blame them? Who wouldn't want to take their "medicine" in a candy form?

Does it get any better than CBD gummies? This candy is amazing! It works well for stressful days and helps support a sense of calm for focus. - Mitchel (CBD Customer)

How many CBD gummies should I eat?

The quick answer there isn't a "correct" dosage. It depends on your body type, your tolerance level of CBD, and your level of pain or stress. Many researchers state to start with one and see how you feel. If nothing happens, try two the next day. If there is still no effect, up it one each day until you feel the results you're looking trying to achieve. The worst side effect of a very high dose would be a change in mood and tiredness. (Pun not intended.)

The Benefits of CBD Gummies and Other Sweets: Yummy, Discreet & Fun

CBD candies have many benefits over the traditional way of oil drops on the tongue. Often people don't find CBD oil to have a very pleasing taste. Most of the CBD gummies and sweets have a fantastic flavor; the challenge is in eating too many; not because of the side effects, but because it's not kind to the waistline.

The fun factor is, they are very discreet; you can take them throughout the day without anyone knowing or even bringing attention to it. Being discreet can come in very handy at social events or work. While it's legal to have CBD infused food in the United States, some people are fearful of getting questioned. Gummies are very low-key, along with being very handy. You can throw a few handfuls in a plastic container and put them in your lunch bag without worrying that they will spill. Using CBD oil with a dropper can be tricky and challenging to conceal, plus it can be quite messy if not maintained properly. The downside to gummies is that it takes longer to move through the digestive system, and this will delay the effects of the CBD. However, CBD gummies work the same as the other CBD products on the market today.

Who Can Use CBD Candy?

There are no restrictions on who can use or take CBD gummies, so it's open to everyone who chooses to use them as their supplement of choice. CBD has been considered safe, non-toxic, and non-addictive. It's safe for everyone. If you are looking to try out a CBD supplement, then gummies are a great way to try that. The gummies are premeasured. They are easier to control verse the oils. CBD gummies are, in general, an ideal way to boost your overall health and help support you in your journey of a healthy lifestyle.

Does CBD in the gummies help anxiety?

CBD has shown excellent results in helping anxiety, varying from minor cases of stress to full-on panic attacks. As one 2010 paper published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology suggests, both human and animal studies indicate that cannabidiol, one of the primary compounds found in cannabis and marijuana, can serve as a viable treatment for anxiety. [1]

What is CBD?

CBD also is known as cannabidiol and is a molecule found in cannabis. It has become an increasingly popular ingredient in therapeutic oils, creams, and alternative medicines. CBD is anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiolytic. These properties allow it to prevent and reduce stress and anxiety and also help to relieve pain. The effects of these properties aren't enough to allow CBD to benefit so many conditions alone. The interaction of the cannabinoids found in CBD with the receptors is the leading property that produces positive effects throughout the body. These allow CBD to treat many conditions leading to a stable health condition in humans and animals alike.

Some of the things that CBD is most commonly used to treat include:

  • Arthritis and other inflammatory conditions

  • Anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems

  • Cancer

  • Various diseases of the intestinal tract like IBS and Crohn's disease

  • Various forms of pain, both chronic and acute


Many people are nervous about trying CBD type oils and products because CBD type oils come from the same plant as THC. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is another cannabinoid. You can rest easy tonight knowing that CBD doesn't give you the high feeling nor does it show up on drug tests like it's close friend THC. This is very interesting too since they are both made of the same atoms, but they are just arranged in a different order.

CBD Oil Vs. Hemp Oil

CBD oil (cannabidiol) is not the same as hemp oil. Hemp oil comes from the tiny seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant, so they are grinding up seeds to extract the hemp oils. CBD oil, on the other hand, is produced by grinding up the leaves, stalks, and flowers of the hemp plant. To break it down into purer form hemp oil comes from the seeds and CBD oil comes from the whole plant. CBD oil is going to more of a pure form; hemp oil can only be sold in 0.03% amounts. Most foods and products that are sold by a 3rd party that contain CBD's are going it be around the 0.03% range. You can purchase CBD oils that have a higher amount, but you must apply those products yourself.

Works well and honestly does calm me down without any side effects, regulates pain to a degree, but where I see the most improvement is in anxiety! - Daniel (CBD Customer)

Can CBD gummies help you lose weight?

Many proponents do and will admit that CBD helps with losing weight by suppressing appetite. However, while there are tons of anecdotal proof that suggests CBD helps suppress appetite, there are no studies to back the claims. It might be worth trying for weight loss as there aren't any side effects to it not working.

How do CBD gummies make you feel?

CBD gummies won't give you the high you might be used to with other THC type products; however, they will provide you with the calming effect for anxiety and make you feel less likely that you want to freak out.

Does CBD cause THC to stay in your system?

THC is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, that is what they test for in a drug test. However, there are small trace amounts of THC in CBD products. There would have to be enough THC in your system for it to show up on the test, and it is sporadic. Many products on the market will tell you that it is very uncommon to test positive for THC when you are using CBD products.

CBD does help many people; there is no disputing it. However, keep in mind that CBD is a supplement in the United States. What I am getting at is the strength between bottle, brands, and amounts to take can vary. It's best to try a few brands and see what one best fits your needs.
