CHOOSING CBD GUMMIES
Whenever it comes to finding the best cbd gummies, it can be difficult to choose from the many brands, concentrations, and other qualities. In this post, Hemp Bombs will suggest a few different things to look for when buying cbd gummies.
Where are the CBD Gummies Sourced From?
Like most consumable products, it is important to maintain a high standard of production from ingredients to consumer. This includes where the product is “sourced” from. Hemp Bombs’ sources CBD Gummy Bears from European Certified Industrial Hemp, in the form of Crystalline Isolate, which is 99% pure CBD.
It’s important for the consumer to know the sourcing because it not only affects quality but also the constituent chemicals within the CBD. For example, products that are derived from “Marijuana” plants and not “Industrial Hemp” are more likely to contain traces of THC and Cannabinoids other than CBD. These products may be “Full Spectrum,” but they are also very much illegal, and have the ability to show up on drug tests.
It’s important for the consumer to know the sourcing because it not only affects quality but also the constituent chemicals within the CBD.
Co2 Extraction for CBD Gummy Bears
Whenever you look to buy CBD Gummy Bears, look for any type of documentation on “extraction” methods. The extraction method refers to the way the CBD is collected and removed from the plant itself. A few extraction methods are:
- Ethanol/Alcohol: Also known as “Rick Simpson” method. It involves the separation of CBD from the plant by a solvent like alcohol.
- Vegetable Oil/Olive Oil: Plant fat oils are effective at extracting resins, the highly concentrated part of Hemp plants.
- Hydrocarbon/CO2: These are considered the “best” extraction processes, most effective at isolating the CBD from the rest of the plant’s chemicals.
Co2 extraction involves transforming Carbon Dioxide into a “supercritical” state in which it takes on both gaseous and liquid properties. Once Carbon Dioxide achieves this supercritical state, it is then pushed through Industrial Hemp where it extracts the CBD.
In Hemp Bombs’ Gummies, we use a hydrocarbon extraction process, followed by winterization to remove fats and lipids. Any unwanted plant material is removed by a rotary evaporator. The oil is then sent through another rotary evaporation process. Then, the oil is decarboxylated (process of converting the acidic forms of CBD into its activated form by using heat). The active CBD comes out in crystallized form.
Another thing to consider when purchasing CBD Gummies is whether or not the company offers lab tests. In the fast-moving world of business, sometimes companies can be so eager to get a product to market that they fail to dot their I’s and cross their T’s. In that situation, the consumer has no idea whether what they are ordering matches what they “think” they are ordering. When it comes to personal health, that’s a big deal.
CBD Gummy Bears are products that have been used to help with chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia - serious health concerns. If you’re a consumer that needs help in these areas, you can’t afford a placebo effect. Hemp Bombs’ CBD Gummies have professional lab tests and reviews. With our products, you can be confident that what you read is what you get.
