How the CBD gummies are Made

The Flintstones vitamins have been around since the 1960s, making gummies a weird spot between healthy food and sweets. As adults who grew up with these vitamins decided to continue the habit, gummies became a standard way to take nutritional supplements.

As CBD edibles flooded the market in recent years, CBD gummies appeared. At Hempiverse, we offer our customers the highest-quality CBD gummies. Tasty and delicious, you can consult our product catalog to find the one that best suits your tastebuds. Taking advantage of the occasion, we explain in this blog how these gummies are made. Read on to learn more.

What Are CBD Gummies?

CBD gummies are delicious and chewy candies that contain cannabidiol or CBD. 

CBD is a natural extract from the hemp plant, which is a non-toxic variety of cannabis. It is among the numerous cannabinoids found in cannabis that interact with the human nervous system, often with positive effects. 

Unlike marijuana, CBD does not contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient that produces a high. It is commonly available in oil form, but it is also sold as an extract, a vaporized liquid, an oil-based capsule, and in the form of gummies. 

How are CBD gummies made?

Extracting the CBD

Manufacturing CBD-infused gummies start with isolating CBD. CBD is a natural, non “high”-inducing chemical compound created by the cannabis plant. Most CBD products are made from extracts of hemp, a specific type of cannabis plant. Hemp and cannabis each produce different chemical constituents.

To get CBD, extraction technicians must detach oily hemp resin from the plant material. CBD is locked away inside cannabis resin. There are several ways to extract CBD oil from the plant, but the most popular methods are solvent extraction or CO2 extraction.

Making the Gummy

Making gummy candies is a similar process to making Jell-O. After the extraction process, CBD is obtained in the form of a crystal that can dissolve in an edible medium. To make CBD gummies, CBD is added to the other ingredients while they are melted in bulk. 

One of the main ingredients in gummies is pectin, which is a naturally occurring substance found in fruits. When pectin is cooked with sugar water, it leads to the gelation process that creates jams and jellies. In modern times, pectin is extracted and used to create even more rigid products, such as gummies and gummy bears. 

Apart from pectin, sweeteners, oils, and flavorings are added to the mixture, which may vary depending on the manufacturer. For example, some gummies include organic tapioca syrup, cane sugar, fruit juice, and sunflower oil. They also contain natural and artificial flavors like those of orange, strawberry, berry, and tropical. 

To enhance the flavor, citric acid and malic acid are added to the mixture. Citric acid gives the flavor of tart lemons, while malic acid gives the taste of apples. 

Once the CBD is melted and added to the mixture, the resulting gelatinous infusion is extruded, cut into cubes or other shapes, and coated with a soft wax extracted from the leaves of the Brazilian carnauba palm.

Buying CBD gummies

When you purchase CBD gummies, follow the guidelines and tips.

  • Look for CBD made of hemp rather than marijuana, preferably grown in the U.S. It is the U.S. government that sets the 0.3 percent THC limit, as well as the standards for cultivation and processing, so you know what you’re getting.
  • Make sure it has a proportionate amount of CBD and THC, if any. A good supplier will publish the results of testing their products carried out by a third-party laboratory, which will show the levels of CBD, THC, and other relevant substances.
  • Stay away from vendors who claim CBD has the power to relieve pain, anxiety, or other medical conditions. There is some interesting research on these topics that may still bear fruit, but no one can (nor is legally allowed) make definitive statements.
  • A note about our packaging: The number of milligrams listed on the bottle covers the entire bottle, so to find out how much is in each gummy, divide by 30. Therefore, in the 300 mg bottle, there are 10 mg of jellybean, and in the 750 mg, there are 25 mg per gummy.

Using CBD Gummies

CBD gummies are a tastier way to consume CBD than capsules or tinctures. They offer a sugar boost and can be more stylish to consume in public. Capsules and tinctures can look like medication, while vaporizers may annoy your neighbors. For this reason, many people prefer gummies while at work, on a trip, or anywhere outside the home. Taking one or two gummies before a stressful event may help you stay calm.

However, keep in mind that it takes longer for CBD to reach your bloodstream when consumed via gummies. If you want it to arrive at a specific time, give yourself at least an hour to fully absorb it. Other forms like tinctures, patches, or vaporizers are faster to act.

If you’re new to using CBD, start small. Even though gummies are delicious, we recommend taking a couple of gummies a day for a few weeks to gauge how your body fully reacts. You can always add more if necessary.

Final thoughts

CBD gummies can be a discreet and delicious way to get your CBD intake. As always, consult your healthcare professional before using hemp gummies or any CBD products.

Gummies can complement other CBD edible products that Hempiverse offers. You can use it for an extra boost if you feel a greater need that day for the natural benefits of CBD.
