Heady Harvest CBD Gummies Review
These delicious gummy bears are available in two forms: standard and sour bears. Each pack contains 20 gummies, with a total of 200, 500 or 1000mg of cannabidiol (CBD). These delicious CBD edibles are non-psychoactive, and can be used for a variety of therapeutic purposes.
In this post, we will highlight some reasons for taking CBD gummies from Heady Harvest and how to use edibles in general. But first, we’ll start by looking at the ingredients which make these gummy bears unique.
High-quality CBD extract
These gummies are made with a “pure spectrum” CBD extract, and don’t contain any THC. Products made from industrial hemp are legally permitted to have as much as 0.3 percent THC. But many CBD users prefer not to have any THC whatsoever. The THC-free nature of this product means that the CBD gummies are perfect for those who may get drug tested at work.
Made with fractionated coconut oil
Fractionated coconut oil is found in these gummies, and this ingredient brings more than just flavor. Coconut oil is rich in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), fatty acids that essentially make the CBD more potent.
Usually – and this is especially the case with edibles – much of the CBD is lost because it cannot be metabolized and absorbed into the bloodstream. This low bioavailability makes the CBD very inefficient. MCTs help significantly with the metabolization of CBD, increasing bioavailability and giving you more bang for your buck.
Exploring CBD gummies effects
The effects of CBD gummy bears, as with all CBD products, differ depending on how much you take. The Heady Harvest range is extensive, covering those who like both low and high doses, with three strengths to choose from. Let’s find out which one may be most suitable for you.
In this pack, each gummy contains 10mg of CBD. This is considered a very low dose, and therefore perfect for beginners who haven’t experimented with CBD previously. Even seasoned CBD users may want to start here if they haven’t tried edibles before. This is because cannabinoids affect the body differently when taken this way.
A small edible dose is likely to have a rejuvenating effect, and may help to improve focus. The wakefulness qualities of CBD have not been studied extensively. But they tend to come more from lower doses. In larger quantities, CBD’s effects are more sedative.
The 200mg pack is, therefore, great for daytime use. You could even take multiple doses during the day, to sustain the effects. A 10mg dose of CBD may increase productivity at work, and also act as a useful, natural study aid.
This is a more potent pack containing 25mg of CBD per gummy. The recommended dose if you are taking CBD as a daily supplement is between 20 and 30mg, making this product perfect. The supplemental value of CBD are exerted on the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Here, CBD has a balancing and regulating effect on the network’s receptors.
The 500mg pack may also work for new CBD users who want to take CBD for calming reasons, or to ease anxiety. First-timers won’t be accustomed to the effects of CBD initially, and could potentially enjoy the deep relaxation on a lower dose.
With the 1000mg pack, each gummy contains a mighty 50mg of CBD. This stronger dose is aimed mostly at regular CBD users, who are happy taking higher quantities. Perhaps you want to use CBD gummies for pain, but have severe symptoms that can only be managed by a hefty hit. If so, these edibles are you. The same applies for those with anxiety and insomnia.
However, 50mg of CBD is a great dose if you simply want to chill out with a natural product, without experiencing the intoxication that comes with alcohol. CBD alleviates stress, and is sure to put you in a good mood.
And don’t forget, if you don’t always want the full 50mg hit, just split the gummy and enjoy it in two helpings. In Heady Harvest edibles, the CBD is distributed evenly throughout the gummy bears.
A guide to using Heady Harvest CBD Gummies
As mentioned earlier in the piece, CBD edibles can be a little different to other CBD products you may have tried. This is rarely an issue since CBD is non-psychoactive. But knowing how to use edibles makes them more helpful for you, and cost-effective, too.
Wait at least 90 minutes between doses
Whatever dose you choose to start with, make sure that you wait at least 90 minutes before taking another. It can be really tempting to increase your intake if you don’t feel the effects straight away. But edibles kick in much more slowly than e-liquids and tinctures. The response time for these CBD gummies could be even longer if you have a slow metabolism.
Even though the only downside of a super-strong dose is feeling drowsy, it’s not an efficient way to use CBD. The effects do plateau after a certain dose, so there is no value in consuming more for the sake of it. A 90-minute wait between doses means you can really judge whether the CBD is having the intended effect, or if you need a little more.
Familiarize yourself with the effects
Learning how your body responds to CBD really helps you to get the most from your product. If you familiarize yourself with the effects of various doses, it’s possible to really hone the experience you have with CBD. Furthermore, when you are taking exactly the right amount each time, this is great financially as there’s no waste.
