What is the CBD in gummies and will it make me 'high'?
CBD gummies are a popular form of cannabidiol (CBD) consumption and are used by people for various purposes. CBD will not make you 'high', it is a non-psychoactive compound derived from the cannabis plant, and it is believed to offer several potential health benefits.

How long does it take to kick in?
The time it takes for a CBD gummy, or any CBD product, to kick in can vary from person to person. In general, when consuming CBD through an edible like a gummy, it needs to pass through your digestive system before it can be absorbed into your bloodstream. This process can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours or more. So, you may start to feel the effects within this timeframe. Several factors can influence the onset of effects, including individual metabolism, body weight, and tolerance to CBD.
1. Metabolism: Metabolism varies from person to person. Some individuals have a faster metabolism, which means their bodies break down and absorb substances more quickly. Others have a slower metabolism, which can delay the onset of effects as the CBD is processed and enters the bloodstream. 2. Body Weight: CBD is fat-soluble, meaning it dissolves in fat. People with higher body weight may have more fat tissue, potentially leading to a slower absorption rate of CBD. Conversely, individuals with lower body weight may experience effects more quickly. 3. Digestive Health: The efficiency of the digestive system can impact how quickly CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream. If someone has gastrointestinal issues or a slower digestive process, it may take longer for the CBD to take effect. 4. Tolerance: Individuals who regularly use CBD or other cannabinoids may develop a tolerance over time. This means they may need higher doses to feel the same effects they initially experienced with lower doses. 5. Individual Sensitivity: Everyone's endocannabinoid system (ECS) is unique, and some people may be more sensitive to CBD or cannabinoids in general. As a result, they may experience effects sooner or with lower doses. 6. Food Intake: Taking a CBD gummy on an empty stomach may lead to faster absorption compared to taking it after a heavy meal. Food in the stomach can slow down the digestion process and, consequently, the absorption of CBD. 7. Quality of the Product: The quality and composition of the CBD gummy can also play a role. Different brands may use various extraction methods and ingredients that could affect how quickly the CBD is released and absorbed. However, keep in mind that the effects of CBD can be subtle and may not be immediately noticeable for some individuals. It's recommended to start with a low dosage, like the 75 mg gummy, and gradually increase if needed until you find the right dosage that works for you.
Can I overdose? Is it addictive?
CBD (cannabidiol) is generally considered to have a good safety profile, and it is not associated with fatal overdoses. However, while it's unlikely to overdose on CBD, taking extremely high doses may lead to certain side effects such as drowsiness, dry mouth, diarrhea, or changes in appetite. These side effects are generally mild and subside as the CBD is metabolized by the body.
CBD is a non-intoxicating compound, so it does not produce the euphoric or "high" feeling associated with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Additionally, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.
It's important to note that individual responses to CBD may vary, and some people may be more sensitive to its effects. As with any supplement or medication, it's always best to start with a low dose and gradually increase if needed while closely monitoring how your body responds.
How do I store CBD Gummies and how long are they fresh?
Proper storage of CBD gummies is essential to maintain their freshness, potency, and overall quality. Our Hinkle Hemp Harmony CBD Gummies are made per order and should be consumed within 30 days of opening. Here are some additional tips on how to store CBD gummies:
1. Keep in a Cool, Dark Place: Store your CBD gummies in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat. Exposure to heat and light can degrade the CBD and other ingredients in the gummies, potentially reducing their effectiveness. 2. Avoid Moisture: Moisture can also impact the quality of CBD gummies. To prevent them from becoming soggy or developing mold, store them in an airtight container or their original packaging with the seal tightly closed. 3. Keep Away from Children and Pets: Always keep CBD gummies out of reach of children and pets. Though CBD is generally considered safe for human consumption, consuming large quantities can lead to unwanted side effects. Furthermore, children and pets may mistake the gummies for regular candies. 4. Check the Expiration Date: Before purchasing CBD gummies, check the expiration date on the packaging. Once you have them, make a note of the expiration date and try to consume them before that date for the best results. 5. Avoid Extreme Temperatures: As mentioned earlier, CBD gummies should be kept away from extreme temperatures. Freezing them or exposing them to very cold temperatures can also affect their texture and potency. 6. Follow Manufacturer Instructions: If the CBD gummies come with specific storage instructions from the manufacturer, be sure to follow them for optimal results. 7. Keep Track of Dosage: If you're dividing the CBD gummies into smaller doses, consider using a small container or baggie labeled with the dose to help you keep track of your intake.
By following these storage guidelines, you can help extend the shelf life and potency of your CBD gummies, ensuring that you get the best experience when consuming them.
