Hemp Gummies – What Are they?
Okay, so gummies in general are one of the nicest things to eat. But the traditional ones you find in sweets shops may not be as good for you as the ones we’re talking about – the Hemp versions.
A bit about the conventional version of gummy bears – they originated in Germany and have been around for decades.
The founder of the company Haribo first invented them, Hans Riegel, and they were originally called “dancing bears”, there is quite a fascinating history behind these delicious candies.
As delicious as these are, one thing not many people know about them is that the Gelatin in them comes from both cows and pigs. So, if you are a vegan or vegetarian, this may be a big no for you.
Suffice to say these aren’t considered a healthy alternative as it is a man-made product and is filled with ingredients such as tons of sugar and artificial additives, not to mention they have no nutritional value.
In comparison when you swap these out for the hemp ones, you get loads of good stuff.
Besides the presence of pure hemp seed oil which is extracted directly from the plant itself, they are full of a component known as “Linoleic Acid”, which is a fatty acid present in most plants and essential addition to our diets and health.
Eating this alone can reduce cholesterol levels significantly, which results in fewer heart issues and a reduction in high blood pressure.
Another popular benefit of this is it is good for both hair and skin because it is rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, which as we know is good for you.
Studies have been done to see improvements in hair loss and when used on rodents stimulated hair growth: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/omega-3-for-hair
it is also good for arthritis, inflammation and pain, brain functionality and vision. What more can you ask for from one healthy bear?
CBD Gummies – What Are They?
Now let’s look at the CBD versions of these bears. As the name would have suggested to you by now, they are infused with pure cannabidiol oil as a full-spectrum version that is extracted from the Cannabis Sativa plant.
However, both these and the ones above have less than 0.3% THC in them so they will not make you high.
The best sellers usually are made in a pure format with no artificial ingredients, flavors or colorants in them.
Plus, they have no pig or cow gelatin in them so they are safe for vegans and vegetarians. These can be quite strong and come in different strengths from 300mg to 1500 and 3000 mg.
Benefits of these include reducing physical discomfort, by soothing any aches and pains throughout the body.
It also reduces blemishes and dry skin, and even though you get the topical versions, the best thing is to tackle these issues both from the inside by eating healthy alternatives like these gummies, as well as the outside by applying the creams and balms to get a full 360 benefit.
It helps to improve your mood, so if you are anxious, nervous or stressed it can help to calm you down and make you feel good.
If you have a loss of appetite for some reason like surgery or certain medication that takes away your craving for food, it can help stimulate this for you.
Lastly, it also helps to improve your sleep condition, and those who suffer from sleeplessness or insomnia may significantly benefit from eating these an hour or two before bedtime to let it work through your mind and body, bringing you to a state of relaxation so you can drift off to sleep with ease and wake up in the morning feeling refreshed from a good night’s rest.
So, which one do you think you should go for? Our recommendation before starting to take any of the two options above is to first speak to your general practitioner or health care practitioner and ask them if it’s fine for you to take them.
Although these have minimal to none side-effects so should be safe, but never overdo it. Always follow the dosage instructions on the packaging and look for the purest forms either online or at the health and food stores.
