I seriously love CBD gummies, they’re a great tasting way of getting my daily dosage of CBD in a joyful manner. Over the past week I’ve been trying the Organic Relief pure vegan gummies, packed full of CBD.
How Do They Taste?
They were actually very nice. As much as I say I like CBD gummies, I have had a few that do taste quite intense, however these were very much like a usual sweet you would eat during childhood, with no bad aftertaste. They were much thicker than the Love Hemp bears, with flavours including orange, pineapple, lemon, strawberry and blackberry.
How Much CBD Do You Get?
Each gummy contains a whopping 20mg of CBD! The average gummy contains 5-10mg, so this is a much higher level than your average CBD gummy. You get 15 gummies in a single pack, meaning it contains 300mg in a whole pack.
The recommended directions are to take 2-3 gummies daily as required. I personally aim for 20mg of CBD in the morning and 20mg 30 minutes before bed. As this contains sugar, I preferred to have it in the morning. You should work out what works best for you and adjust accordingly. While there isn’t exactly a maximum, the general guidance is never to go over 200mg in a 24 hour period, but I wouldn’t recommend going anywhere near this figure.
This product includes a broad spectrum distillate, meaning it does contain a number of other cannabinoids, working together in synergy in what is known as the entourage effect, however it also means it doesn’t contain THC.
The gummies also contain a small amount of turmeric and spirulina, which are great healthy ingredients. Turmeric, often included in curries, is great due to curcumin (something I supplement with every day), which has numerous health benefits and has plenty of anti-inflammatory properties. Both spirulina and turmeric contain antioxidants, that help to fight off free radicals, the biggest factor in ageing, as it damages cells, including your DNA.
On top of this, you will also find paprika extract and black carrot concentrate, which comes from dark purple black carrots (I had no idea they came in that colour). Paprika is great for your skin, it can help with your hair colour and can also help you to sleep better at night.
How Is It Vegan?
Most gummy bears or sweets of this nature contain gelatine as a gelling agent, however this is made from the skin, cartilage and bones of an animal, most commonly cows or pigs. However, in the Organic Relief ingredients, you can see pectin, which is a plant based alternative made from real fruit. It is heated with sugar so that it thickens into a jelly like form.
Where Can I Buy These From?
You can purchase the Organic Relief CBD gummies from their website for £29.99, while there is a flat shipping rate of £2.
