Sweet Treats |CBD Gummies, Benefits and Proper Dosage


Regardless of our age, we just cannot let go of sweet treats. However, as we grow older, we also need to make sure we eat healthy as our body becomes a bit more demanding, health-wise (read more).

Foods commonly consumed by Americans that are top sources of sugar include cereals, fruit drinks, soft drinks, flavored yogurt, and candies. We are all aware that sugar is always linked with diabetes. However, you need to know that sugar has more negative effects on our body other than diabetes and obesity. Below, we listed some of the major implications high-sugar levels may have to your body.

Impact On Heart Health

This may come as a shock to you but yes, consuming too much sugar also affects your heart. A medical expert has found with their research studies that when you have a higher intake of sugar, the higher risk you will have to die of heart disease.

Effect On Your Mood

When consuming too much sugar, we get high energy (we call it “sugar high”). If we stop there, we may say it’s a good thing, but the thing is, when you are losing the “sugar high” as your cells absorb it, you may feel anxious, down, or depressed. This is commonly referred to as a “sugar crash” and harmless as that may sound, it may have more persistent, lasting effects.

Others include joint pains because of the inflammation caused by too much sugar, cavities, faster skin aging, damaged liver, pancreas, and kidney.

Could We Continue To Eat Our Sweet Treats?

After we were reminded of the adverse effects’ candies may inflict on us, the big question is – could we continue to eat candies? Different people may have different answers to this question since we have our own point of view. As for me, I can say, YES! It is hard for us to take away something that we love, and you know – YOLO. Just note that this time, you must be very careful of your sugary choices.

Try Natural Organic Candies

Though we cannot eliminate sugar (healthy fruits have sugar), we must choose products that don’t have added sugars in them. One good example is natural organic candies. These for sure do not contain too much sugar, plus you have quite an assurance that it is something healthy because it was purposely made to be a healthy treat!

Depending on your preferences, there are a lot of natural candies you may choose from. Ginger delights, Organic honey, hard lemon candies, and CBD gummies are examples. They are available in many stores, even online!

CBD Gummies

Out of the three examples given above, CBD gummies may be the newest to most people. These are gummies that are infused with CBD and are organic.

CBD or Cannabidiol is a chemical compound that is extracted from cannabis plants (hemp). This is a non-psychoactive ingredient that is said to have medical properties and is being used already for centuries.

Types Of CBD Gummies

If you check the label of these sweet treats, you will see “isolate”, “full-spectrum”, and “broad spectrum”.

IsolateThis is the purest form of CBD. It contains 99% CBD.

Full SpectrumThis includes all-natural cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes, and a small amount of THC (less than .3%) that are extracted in the hemp plant.

Note: THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is a psychoactive ingredient that is primarily found in Marijuana. This is the ingredient that makes you “feel high”.

Broad Spectrum This is like full-spectrum EXCEPT for the THC.

Most people prefer the full spectrum because the combination of all its ingredients makes it more effective. However, others are using only the broad spectrum because they do not want to consume THC. So if you buy CBD products, always check the label.

Benefits Of CBD Gummies

In general, Cannabidiol has a lot of medical properties that is why experts are recommending it for specific purposes. Following are the identified benefits of Cannabidiol:

  • Helps with anxiety and depression
  • Improve heart health
  • Has anti-inflammatory effects
  • A good pain reliever
  • Anti-arthritic
  • It helps you get good sleep
  • Sets your mood
  • Good for relaxation
  • Helps with cancer-related symptoms like nausea and vomiting
  • Helps with neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, etc.

Aside from the above-mentioned benefits, eating CBD gummies is one way of enjoying your consumption of Cannabidiol. Other CBD products include oil that you may mix with your food and drinks or drop it directly to your mouth (under the tongue, to be specific). However, the taste of the oil is not for everybody.

Another good thing about this is that there are kids who might need to consume CBD because of some medical conditions. Giving them CBD in the form of gummies will make it easier for you.


This is a very important factor to consider. When consuming any CBD product, make sure you have the right dosage.

The dosage depends on your body weight and your reason for using it. There is a chart made for you to look at, but basically, the general recommendation is between 0.25 mg, which is the regular dose, and 0.50 mg, which is a strong dose for every pound of your weight.

For example, if you weigh 120lbs and want to take a regular dose, multiply your weight by 0.25 (120 x 0.25), which gives you 30mg.

The regular dose is used to boost your immune system, regulate appetite, minor discomfort, ease some tension, and overall health and wellness.

A strong dose could be used if you think the regular amount is not working for you as expected. Read more about it here: https://www.healthline.com/health/cbd-dosage#research.

In summary, CBD gummies are good treats and an excellent substitute for your usual unhealthy treats, but you need to know more about CBD first before you try the product.
