Getting Started with CBD Gummies

CBD  is a hemp-derived compound that offers broad benefits; it has been shown to reduce anxiety and depression and has helped people with chronic pain due to its potent anti-inflammatory effect. In addition, CBD can help with sleep problems, stress, concentration, and more.

Thanks to all these excellent CBD benefits, it´s no wonder CBD gummies' effects are essential to make them one of the best CBD edibles available.

Furthermore, CBD gummies offer additional advantages due to their convenient form; some of the benefits of using CBD gummies are:

  • Great flavor, no earthy aftertaste.
  • Dosage is predetermined.
  • More effective in less product.
  • Easy dosing.
  • Long-lasting effects.
  • Discreet and easy to carry.

Keep in mind that even if it´s your first time taking CBD gummies, you will experience the benefits of CBD, from mild to stronger depending on your tolerance to CBD, dosage, and other factors.

Always talk with your doctor.
Although CBD is considered safe and has been proven to have few adverse effects, it's always good to speak to your doctor about CBD, especially if you are under prescription.

How to take CBD Gummies?

Just like any other candy, you place a CBD gummy in your mouth while enjoying the flavor as you swallow and wait for the effects to kick in.

"Start low and slow," you may have heard this CBD slogan before, an essential step to keep in mind while ingesting CBD edibles. In other words, depending on your body's tolerance to CBD, you should start with a low dose and gradually increase it.

Another aspect to consider when taking CBD gummies, is that edibles pass through the digestive system before entering the bloodstream, affecting how long you will wait before feeling any of CBD´s effects; this can take 40 minutes to two hours.

Indeed, be patient with your body´s reaction to CBD before eating another gummy. A common mistake that beginners make when using CBD for the first time is not waiting long enough, leading to unpleasant side effects when taking more gummies.

How many CBD Gummies Should You take?

Essentially there is no standardized CBD gummy dosage, and we can say that the following factors determine the correct dose:

  • Your body weight.
  • Your body´s tolerance to CBD.
  • Your body´s chemistry.
  • Your desired effect and potency of CBD.
  • Your health condition.
  • And if so, prescribed drugs that can interact with CBD´s effects.

Nevertheless, you can find dosage guidance in every CBD gummy package that can help you start your journey with CBD.

Here at Birch + Fog, we provide you with a handy dosage calculator. If you wish to have a more personalized dose simply follow this steps:

  • Select the species (human, dog/cat, or horse),
  • Read through the list of conditions, and determine your primary purpose for using the product,
  • Select the degree of your condition (mild, average, or severe) and enter your weight.
  • Finally, you'll include product-specific information in the case of CBD gummies, the number of milligrams in the package.

You will be provided an adequate beginning dose tailored to your particular body and health needs.

Birch + Fog wide selection of CBD Gummies

We believe in the power of nature that can bring us back to our balance and wellbeing. Here at Birch and Fog, we provide you with high-quality CBD edibles with a different approach by CBD type, strength, dietary needs like vegan gummies.

To help you understand CBD types better here, we explain the difference between Full-spectrum vs. Isolate CBD gummies, CBD to THC ratios, and a variety of strengths that you can choose from the best CBD gummies available for you.

  • Full-spectrum vs. Isolate: CBD full-spectrum is an extraction of oil that contains all terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids found in the cannabis or hemp plant.

The second most important cannabinoid found in full-spectrum is THC, known to provide high anti-inflammatory effects in combination with CBD. Also, a full-spectrum CBD oil can benefit you from the  “entourage effect,” All components acting together offer broader benefits.

If you seek to avoid THC effects, an Isolate CBD oil is the best option. CBD Isolate is an oil that goes through a process where all the terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids are removed from the oil, and just CBD is left, making it ideal if you wish to benefit solely from CBD.

  • CBD to THC Ratios. Ratio CBD to THC shows how much CBD is in a dosage relative to THC. For example, a ratio of 1:1 means there is equal amounts of CBD and THC.

The potency of your CBD gummy gets calculated by dividing the amount of CBD expressed in the package in mg by the number of gummies. You can also read our content tab found in each product, where you can see how much CBD is in each gummy, making it easier to decide which concentration is best for you. In addition, is ideal, to begin with a low CBD strength; our 50 mg are the lowest concentration you can find among our CBD gummies selection.

  • Dietary needs:  If you are looking for a more healthy option, our vegan-friendly options might interest you.

We provide you with a selection of vegan gummies and gluten-free with a more natural approach in their added ingredients. You can check our vegan section for more cruelty-free products if you wish.

Side effects of CBD gummies

"Will CBD make me high?" is a typical question concerning CBD's effects. CBD is safe and does not provide the same high effects as THC. The effects of THC in a full-spectrum CBD gummy should not be felt unless you are extremely sensitive to this cannabinoid.

While most individuals' tolerance to CBD Gummies (between the recommended doses) is well taken, some side effects can be experienced, and most CBD users report mild effects to none:

  • Mild digestive disturbance or upset stomach
  • Lightheaded
  • Drowsiness
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth
  • Low blood pressure
  • Changes in appetite
  • Possible changes in sleep patterns

Taking responsibility for your body's reaction and ingestion of any sort of CBD edible means keeping in mind any potential adverse effects.
