Uh-oh! Now not everything that I’m gonna post is going to be all sunshine, rainbows, and CBD gummy unicorns.
Because sometimes you pay $9 for a single large CBD gummy and don’t notice anything.
I’d like to preface this with saying “I understand that CBD doesn’t give a high like THC.” I get that. But as a person who uses CBD quite regularly, I will say that I know when a product delivers and when something is off.
Firstly, let’s talk about the presentation.
This is a big gummy, yes. But this isn’t $9 worth of gummy. However, who is the sucker here? It’s me because I’m the one who paid $9. Ah, okay so we must be paying for the product of CBD inside.
Well, I definitely wasn’t paying for taste. Because it tasted like orange flavored shit. Imagine chewing on the nasty crap the clogs up a pipe after a good while of smoking with no cleaning. It tasted like that. With come citric acid sprinkled on top.
So after the first bite into it, I attempted to swallow the whole thing with as few chews as possible. I’m not kidding about the taste folks. It was really bitter. So that might have had something to do with the reason this method of CBD delivery didn’t really work out well for me.
Chew your CBD gummy well… if you can.
I’m not a chemist or a scientist. So, I can’t really say if chewing something more thoroughly actually helps it break down easier in the stomach. But my logic behind that has something to do with the digestive enzymes in saliva. Who knows precisely how that would/could affect the absorption of the CBD product from the gummy. But I truly believe that for 50mg of CBD, I should have experienced more back pain relief than I did.
I looked into it a little bit more and I actually wasn’t able to find the exact candies that I got that day in the little smoke shop. So, I researched their website, greenroadsworld.com. I found that they no longer sell the CBD double dose 200mg gummy frogs like the one I had. But they do have new types of CBD gummies along with laboratory testing results.
I have tried their CBD oil daily dose syringes. I will say I did feel those pretty hard. Greenroads now makes sublingual CBD products. That’s a huge plus for me in that I can tell almost immediately if a sublingual is working. The only con with that again is the taste. It was even worse than the gummy. But the difference is that I actually felt an immediate tension relieving feeling with the sublingual CBD.
Final feeling about this product? Well, good luck finding it anywhere else on the market. Which is probably a good thing because it was overpriced. I don’t think it was worth the money for how much effective CBD you can get from other products. 1/10 wouldn’t do again, especially if I had the choice.
