Cannabis gummies are the most common of all the edibles in the market.  Considering how every second person gives some form of gummies a try, one might wonder what makes them so special. Do you need a marijuana card in Florida to try one? How exactly does one pick gummies or any edibles to give a spin?  

We will be looking at all those questions and a lot more today. Understanding why gummies are so popular begins with the fact that they are just that good. They are delicious and easy to eat.  The same way we enjoy eating any other candy, gummies fulfill the same craving, just with a slightly more adult edge to them. They come in a variety of flavors to cater to all your taste profiles. 

Let’s have what makes them special beyond the general nostalgia. 

Easy To Dose

When it comes to getting your daily dose of cannabis, it is always advised that you work with the exact dosage. In other edibles, there is always a chance that there is a variation in the dosage that is eliminated when it comes to gummies. Every gummy is formulated in a way that gets the exact dosage to the customer. The potency remains the same making it a lot easier to anticipate the effects. 

Anytime Is Gummy Time

When it comes to your general crop of edibles, you need to be in the mood to eat them. Edibles like brownies and cookies are rich and indulgent in nature, often making them not something people can eat on a regular basis. This is not the case with gummies. 

They have significantly fewer calories than your run-of-the-mill brownie, cookie, and candy. This trend is not only reflected in cannabis-based products but also in non-cannabis products. 

With a gummy, you are fulfilling a two-in-one use. It is a great snack that in this case also doubles as your daily medicine. 

They Have a Long Shelf Life

Compared to other baked goods, gummies have a significantly longer shelf life. Baked goods by virtue of what is present in them, tend to degrade a lot faster than gummies and even candy. 

A simple concept to understand this would be that you would probably not eat a brownie you find in your cupboard, but a gummy or candy you would not even give a second thought and just pop it in your mouth. 

Heat is Less of an Issue 

Chocolates melt pretty fast, so do brownies, the heat ruins the cannabinoids and terpenes present in the edible which makes it weaker diminishing the effects and the experience significantly. 

This problem is entirely mitigated when it comes to gummies. Especially if it is made with pectin instead of gelatin, then you are looking at an even higher melting point. So, you can carry them anywhere and not fret over storage. 

Choosing Your Gummies

Now that you know why gummies are obviously the better edible to inculcate in your daily life. The next step is to pick the gummies from the myriad of options that are available in the market.  

Your first goal is to figure out what is the best cannabinoid for you. There are plenty of options available to you. These are responsible for the effects that you feel from cannabis. While research is still at a nascent stage, results thus far have been promising and affect a range of processes in our bodies to manage everything from pain, inflammation all the way to anxiety and sleep. There are plenty of cannabinoids, each with its own supposed functions. But today, we will be talking about the two major ones. 

THC

This is one that is most talked about in cannabis circles. After all, this is the cannabinoid in the cannabis plant that is responsible for all its famous psychoactive effects. The effects of THC vary from person to person. Some people experience heightened feelings of euphoria, relaxation, creativity, and pain relief. But on the other end of the spectrum, you have people experiencing short-term memory loss, confusion, shifts in time perception, lack of coordination, elevated heartbeat, and anxiety. So, if you are trying THC for the first time, start with an extremely low dosage and then work from there. 

CBD

Okay so scientifically speaking anything that changes that brain’s activity is considered to be psychoactive. That makes CBD psychoactive as well, just not in the same way as THC. CBD is different from THC in the way that it is non-psychoactive. So, none of those euphoric feelings will be felt.  What CBD does do is help you address issues related to anxiety. So, if you are hoping to manage anxiety or just add gummies as a general wellness addition to your routine these are the ones you should get. 

Our Pick: Get a Combination of THC and CBD

When THC and CBD work together, as a user you tend to feel a much better high than what you might end up with when you use a THC gummy. When there is a balanced amount of CBD present, the chances of going through a THC-induced paranoia are also significantly lowered. 

As a newbie, the best thing to do would be to find a balanced gummy that has the effects of both CBD and THC. Do check up on the guidelines of your state. THC gummies are not available everywhere. There are states that allow off-the-counter purchases if you are over the age of 21 but usually what you need is a medical marijuana card to get the right product.
