At Cannabidiol Life, we infuse our quality products with CBD from USDA Certified Organic Hemp grown in Colorado, USA. Yummy, chewable, gelatin-based snacks that you’re sure to love; with many options available to choose from.


CBD gummies are the 2nd most popular CBD product on the market next to CBD oil and for good reason! They offer easy to understand servings (each gummy contains 25mg of full-spectrum hemp extract), amazing taste, and transportable sizes for when you’re on the go.


We offer THC-free CBD gummy bears, worms, and watermelons, as well as a non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, full-spectrum CBD gummy, made 100% with organic ingredients.

Full-spectrum, in comparison to broad-spectrum and pure CBD isolate, will better promote what is known as the “Entourage Effect“. The benefits of CBD products become more transparent when it is manufactured as a full spectrum hemp extract because it offers several more active phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that are naturally-derived from hemp plants.


Our CBD edible gummies are offered at 25 mg of CBD per gummy. We’ve found this to be the best serving size as 10 mg CBD and 15 mg CBD is just not potent enough.


As for ingredients, we’ve found that many companies like to infuse their products with ingredients like l-theanine, lemon balm, turmeric, cane sugar, corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, & melatonin. Most of these ingredients we don’t necessarily have a problem with but we’d like to make clear that we do not infuse our gummies with melatonin.

We’ve always speculated that if any CBD company has the need to infuse their gummies with melatonin, it must be because the quality of their CBD is subpar and their proposed “sleep gummies” are simply infused with OTC sleep aid ingredients.  If you are looking for CBD gummies for sleep, we instead suggest our newly formulated CBN oil and gummies that offer CBN and melatonin-BUY CBN HERE-

Everyone seems to be catching on to the trend of CBD oil, but right after that, the 2nd most popular product is/are CBD gummies; a gelatin-based edible. Since gummies are so popular, we would like our patrons to gain a better understanding of them to better decide if they are the right for their wellness needs.

Therefore, in this guide, we will provide the answers to all the most Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about hemp-derived gummies.

What Are CBD Gummies Icon copy


A CBD edible that is gelatin-based and created with water/juice, a form of sweetener, and infused with an industrial hemp extract; Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a single chemical compound known as a cannabinoid and is naturally derived from Cannabis Sativa plants.

CBD gummies can be broken down into three different types:

  • Full Spectrum
  • Broad Spectrum
  • Pure CBD

These three groups can be further broken down into an unlimited amount of options such as unique sizes, flavors, and CBD potencies.

Using the X, Y variable counting method, there are a total of 9 types of CBD gummies.*

*Number does not include shape, size, & flavor as these variables hold no significant value to the CBD consumer. Furthermore, it is possible for gummies to incorporate multiple types of CBD products and production. An example of this would be a “full-spectrum, infused, sprayed, and tossed CBD Gummy.”*

Variables are variables, but for educational purposes, there are the 9 types of CBD gummies found on the market today.


CBD Gummies come in many different forms, and may even target specific conditions like anxiety or inflammation. This really depends on the manufacturer, and how they have chosen to use their CBD extract when combined with the gelatin treats.

The primary distinctions between CBD-rich hemp extract gummies while disregarding the obvious (shape, color, taste) are two things:

  • Type of CBD product
  • Production method

Now, let’s break down the above for a more direct answer.

There are:

  • three (3) specific types of CBD product
  • three (3) different manufacturing methods used (more or less)

The Three Types of CBD Extracts Used To Make Gummies:

Full Spectrum CBD Gummies

Full-spectrum means that the CBD sourced was extracted from cannabis plants like hemp with full cannabinoid, terpene, and flavonoid profiles. This means it contains the entire cannabinoid profile from extraction, it has not been manipulated to isolate or remove specifics. Full-spectrum, for instance, contains THC, the cannabinoid responsible for the “high” effect we associate with marijuana. Full-spectrum CBD, if sourced from hemp, or according to standards for legal purposes, should contain less than 0.3% THC which shouldn’t influence a drug test nor cause any psychotropic side effects.

Broad Spectrum CBD Gummies

Use cannabinoid extracts that through processing or manipulation, have removed certain cannabinoids. This may produce for instance a full cannabinoid profile gummy that has selectively removed all THC. Generally, another potential negative of broad-spectrum CBD gummies is that they don’t offer the entourage effect because it is missing some phytocannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes from the plants that the broad-spectrum CBD extract was sourced from.

Pure CBD Gummies

These are gummies that only have pure CBD incorporated in the mix. The product used for this is CBD Isolate and is a form of extraction that scientifically targets a specific cannabinoid. What is important to note here is that having no other cannabinoids to support the CBD molecule may potentially undermine its effectiveness.

Now that we have discussed the types of CBD used in gummies, we can move on to the different types of production styles.

CBD-Infused Gummies

These are directly infused with CBD at the ingredient mixing stage. They may contain CBD oil or isolate within the mixture before production. Some gummies like Cannabidiol Life’s Vegan, Organic, Non-GMO Gummies incorporate hemp extract directly into the product. Infused gummies may have an herb or plant-like taste, often sweetened or enhanced for a more natural feel and integrity.

CBD-Sprayed Gummies

Gummies produced in this way incorporate one of the extraction methods into water or oil-based adhesive concoction that will stick and dry on gummies. This is generally how companies add CBD in a cost-effective way or may increase or decrease already infused gummies for an extra kick.

CBD Rolled/Tossed Gummies

Gummies produced in this fashion will have CBD isolate directly applied as an additive to whatever sweetener is flaked onto them. Generally, gummies produced in this way blend isolate mixed with sweetener which is then tossed with wet gummies until fully coated.

What Do CBD Gummies Do Icon


The answer to this question is not necessarily what CBD gummies do, but more so, what CBD does to the human body.  The gummy aspect is irrelevant in regards to offering you the correct answer.  Cannabidiol (CBD) acts on the human body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS), naturally present in all mammals, which helps promote bodily “homeostasis” or a balanced state of well being by promoting better communication between the human bodies internal management system.

We’ve created an amazing, in-depth article called, “What Does CBD do?” and we highly advise that you give it a read.  There is a wonderful educational video on there as well.

Cannabinoids interact with receptors in the human body to regulate a number of functions such as mood, appetite, pain, sleep, and the stress response. These receptors make up what’s known as the endocannabinoid system, or ECS for short.

The ECS was discovered in the late 1980s and appears to promote harmony or synergy among our body’s other systems, such as the nervous and digestive.  This process is known as homeostasis and is considered the main factor in the overall balance between the body’s various systems.

In fact, cannabis has so many potential uses as a relief supplement, it’s now being hailed as a “miracle plant” by a growing number of patients.  This isn’t surprising as many civilizations have been using cannabis for thousands of years and now, CBD, all on its own, is showing some of the same promising results.

CBD Gummies vs THC Gummies Icon

CBD Gummies VS. THC Gummies

CBD is a sister cannabinoid to THC. Both CBD gummies and THC gummies have been shown to potentially help with many health issues. CBD may be more beneficial to consumers that find the “high” of THC uncomfortable.

As the legality of marijuana and other cannabis-based products continues to increase, consumers are becoming more selective, and cautious, with their choices. Specifically, when it comes to choices regarding CBD (Cannabidiol), and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol); the two natural compounds found in plants belonging to the Cannabis genus.

According to Dr. Perry Solomon, CMO at HelloMD, a cannabis plant has more than one hundred chemical compounds. The primary compounds are called cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids. The others are known as endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are also found naturally in the human body. In fact, there is an entire system in our body dedicated to interacting with cannabinoids known as the endocannabinoid system or ECS.

CBD is the main compound sourced from hemp plants that are known to potentially help with many negative conditions. Several studies show that CBD may help reduce symptoms from neuropathic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and may have other beneficial effects as well. Per the WHO, CBD has also been found to be potentially effective in reducing symptoms from several major diseases and ailments.

Legal Concerns

Across the world, cannabis-related laws and regulations are rapidly evolving. This is especially true in the United States. THC and marijuana are included in the list of controlled substances, so they’re banned under federal law. However, some states have changed cannabis-related laws and regulations to make the use of medical marijuana legal. In this case, marijuana could be prescribed by a licensed physician.

Additionally, a few states have sanctioned the recreational use of marijuana. CBD, on the other hand, is federally legal across all 50 states. Before you attempt to buy products containing CBD or THC, it is advisable to get accurate information regarding your state’s laws. If you have cannabis-related products in a state where they’re unlawful or don’t have a valid medical prescription in states where such products are legal, you may encounter legal penalties.


CBD and THC are known to potentially provide medical benefits to users. However, some people prefer using CBD over THC, since it typically does not result in side effects. The Food and Drug Administration accepted Epidiolex, as the first prescription medicine to contain CBD. It’s mainly used to treat two rare types of childhood epilepsy.

CBD may potentially help with various other conditions, such as Seizures, Inflammation, Pain, Nausea, Migraine, Depression, Anxiety, Psychosis. THC can potentially help with conditions like Pain, Muscle Spasms, Glaucoma, Insomnia, Low Appetite, Nausea, and Anxiety.


CBD can be tolerated well, even when used in high doses. Research suggests that if any side effects occur with CBD use, it is likely to be the outcome of drug-to-drug interactions between CBD and other medicines a person may be consuming.

THC leads to temporary side effects, like Increased Heart Rate, Coordination Problems, Dry Mouth, Red Eyes, Slower Reaction Times, Memory Loss. Neither of these compounds is fatal. However, there is speculation that high THC dosing may cause long-term negative psychiatric effects. This is particularly true for teenagers, whose brains are still developing. Using THC in excess increases the risk for a few psychiatric disorders, like schizophrenia.

Both CBD and THC gummies have been shown to potentially have certain medical benefits. In terms of negative side effects, they’re also both considered to be mild. Still, it’s a good idea to always consult with your doctor before taking cannabinoids in order to minimize the risk of negative drug interactions with any medicines you may be taking.

“From as far back as I could remember, which is probably near the time the Hemp farm bill was announced, I’ve enjoyed eating gummies! We implore you to view our lab testing, lab reports, and certificate of analysis to compare the quality of our products to other companies such as Charlotte’s Web, CBDfx, Sunday Scaries, PlusCBD oil gummies, etc. Furthermore, I feel as though gummies, as well as chocolate, are timeless edibles and now that we have the ability to make them healthier for the general public, it’s a no brainer!”
