Newbie’s Guide to CBD Chewables

If you’re like the average person, you’ve heard of the potential power of CBD and are curious about trying it, but aren’t sure where to begin. Of all the ways to consume CBD, doing so in “gummy” or “chewable” form is certainly the most convenient, but it’s still not something you should be popping like candy, as tempting as that might be.

CBD stands for cannabidiol and is part of the cannabis plant, just like weed is. CBD interacts with our internal endocannabinoid system — or “balance check” — in different ways than marijuana, however. CBD binds with the receptors in our endocannabinoid system but does so without THC, so no “high” is experienced. It’s important to shop for only lab-tested, high quality gummies like Baton’s so you know you’re getting a premium, broad spectrum (not purely isolate) product.

What to Expect

If you’re expecting to achieve a “high” with CBD, you will end up being sorely disappointed. THC-free CBD is more likely to uplift and relax you. It is the gentler side of the cannabis plant.

Start Small

Everyone’s body is different and will react to CBD in different ways. Always follow the directions provided on your bottle or packet. If some time has passed with no noticeable results, only then should you try slightly increasing your dosage. Conversely, if you found the recommended amount of CBD was too much for you, decrease your intake for the next time.

Adjust Your Serving

An awesome thing about CBD chewables is that you can easily customize your dose to fit you. You can pop an extra gummy for a boosted effect, or slice one in two for a milder dose. Experiment with how different amounts of CBD affect your feelings of well-being until you find that “just right” level.

Consult Your Doctor

Before starting any CBD regimen, it’s important to consult your doc regarding any pre-existing conditions or medications. While CBD is generally considered safe, there is always the potential for side effects in certain situations.

Remember That CBD Is Not a Cure-all

CBD has not been evaluated by the FDA to treat, cure or prevent any health concern. There is some anecdotal evidence that regular CBD use may enhance personal wellness by lessening pain, lowering anxiety, improving sleep and heightening mood. This concludes our Public Service Announcement!
