If you already know and love CBD, you may be wondering if CBD-infused gummies are a good addition to your daily health regimen. CBD oil is a trusty standby, but if you want to incorporate CBD into your busy schedule, CBD gummies may be the answer.
CBD may boost your well-being and help you navigate daily stresses, which makes it a great choice for when you’re headed to work, or relaxing after a hectic day. Here are the key differences between CBD gummies and CBD oil to know so you can incorporate CBD into your daily schedule at any time.
What Is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is sourced from the hemp plant which is a cousin of the cannabis plant. Both plants are members of the cannabis sativa genus. Many people confuse hemp with cannabis, which is why hemp and CBD remained illegal for so long.
However, the two plants are very different. Hemp only contains trace amounts of the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Cannabis, on the other hand, contains only minimal amounts of CBD and extremely high levels of THC.
CBD is believed to interact with the receptors of the endocannabinoid system, which was only discovered in the early 1990s. While the human body creates its own cannabinoids, plant cannabinoids can also have a profound effect on the ECS.
The ECS is responsible for helping the body to maintain homeostasis and regulates important systems such as sleep, digestion, immune response, and pain reception. If you suffer from issues such as chronic inflammation, your ECS is not in balance and you are producing too many stress hormones. Over time, this can damage muscle tissue and nerves.
CBD may promote a balance within the ECS. However, the research is still in its infancy, and more studies are needed to clarify CBD’s role in the ECS.
Using CBD Oils and CBD Gummies
Some CBD oils tend to get to work in a short time. If you follow the instructions correctly and hold the oil under your tongue for a minute or so before swallowing, you should begin to experience the benefits in about 15 minutes. Holding the oil under your tongue allows for quicker absorption into your bloodstream.
The benefits of CBD gummies are slightly delayed because they require digestion before circulating around your bloodstream. If you start your day with a gummy, you benefit from a slow-release burst of CBD as you go about daily activities and the effect may last longer.
For a consistent dosage of CBD as part of your health routine, gummies are a great option at any time of day. However, the effect is dependent on your height, weight, and other lifestyle factors.
Dosage and Strength
People who are new to CBD may struggle with using CBD oil. Droppers do not always fill completely, and you must shake the bottle well before filling the dropper. Sometimes the elements of CBD oil can separate, especially if it sits overnight. These factors can impact the amount of CBD you think you’re getting in a dose.
Kats Botanicals CBD-infused gummies are pre-dosed and contain 10 mg of cannabidiol, giving you a more consistent dosage.
Droppers can give you as little as 2 mg of CBD per serving. Gummies provide you with greater control over your CBD levels but allow time for your body to digest the CBD before taking more.
Available Flavors, Taste, and Consumption
Oils and gummies each offer something different in flavor, taste, and administration.
For those who want to mask the potent taste of hemp, you can mix your CBD oil into a variety of drinks and foods. Some of these options include tea, coffee, smoothies, and soups. This provides more versatility than other CBD-infused products.
Kats Botanicals offers CBD oils in the subtle flavors of Vanilla or Blueberry, which can help mask the taste and is a welcome addition to some CBD-infused recipes.
For the creative ingestion of gummies, you can add one to a bowl of ice-cream, oatmeal, or a cup of Greek yogurt. If you have a sweet tooth, gummies are an excellent alternative to oils if you want a different taste sensation.
They also come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, making your CBD intake experience just a little more fun.
If you work in a busy office environment, CBD oil is less discreet to use around your colleagues. While CBD oil delivers CBD to your endocannabinoid system quickly, oil can get messy.
With CBD gummies, take a gummy whenever you want, wherever you want. The bottle is easy to stick into your purse, gym bag, or backpack. Put a gummy into your travel bag to take on a plane when you’re traveling, or bring your bottle along on a hike in a knapsack. The possibilities for discreet use of CBD gummies are endless.
It’s important that you purchase CBD edibles or oils from a reputable supplier like Kats Botanicals. It’s important to research the differences between hemp seed oil and CBD hemp oil. Hemp seed oil contains little CBD, but some vendors try to market it as CBD-rich. Other products may be sourced from a blend of cannabis and hemp, or from strains of cannabis sativa with higher levels of THC.
When buying from a vendor, be sure to validate their products. You can ask for lab reports that prove beyond a doubt the ingredients contained in a CBD product. With Kats Botanicals CBD gummies, simply scan the QR code and you’ll get third-party lab results sent directly to your phone.
Our CBD gummies are all-natural and vegan. The hemp we source is from non-GMO farms that use natural farming practices.
Kats Botanicals CBD oils are full-spectrum. Full-spectrum offers all of the benefits of CBD, along with the naturally-occurring cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes that exist in the hemp plant. These elements work synergistically to promote the Entourage Effect, which delivers CBD more efficiently throughout your body.
Our CBD gummies are made with CBD isolate. CBD isolate is pure CBD without any of the other naturally-occurring hemp elements. This means that for those who need to avoid even trace amounts of THC, CBD gummies are a great choice.
CBD oils tend to have a shorter shelf life than CBD edibles, especially once the bottle is opened. You can spot when an oil has passed its expiration date because it looks cloudy or foggy.
However, both CBD oils and edibles should be kept out of direct sunlight and extreme heat for extended preservation.
CBD gummies can help you maintain a positive outlook and a healthy balance as part of your wellness routine. Our gummies are infused with CBD, which makes a huge difference in terms of bioavailability.
Both CBD oil and CBD gummies offer a boost to your wellbeing so you can feel confident in navigating everyday stresses. Take a gummy or use your CBD oil first thing in the morning to give a great start to your day and promote enhanced cognition, or use it in the evening to support wellness and balance.
You can also use CBD oils and gummies after a workout to promote recovery from activity-induced inflammation and soreness.
CBD Gummies Increasing in Popularity
Gummies, along with several other CBD edibles, really came onto the scene in 2018 with the approval of the 2018 Farm Bill, gaining momentum in the health and wellbeing sector.
Their popularity among the CBD community has increased over the last two years. Consumers seem to prefer the discreet consumption, convenience, and variety that CBD edibles offer, including gummies.

You cannot overdose on CBD. Studies have found that even consuming up to 1500 mg a day does not have any detrimental effects on the body.
The booming, yet unregulated CBD industry makes it easy for disreputable companies to sell substandard CBD products. Research CBD and buy your CBD products from quality vendors. These vendors should provide third-party testing so you can ensure you are getting a pure and potent product.
