Benefits and Challenges to Taking CBD Oil Gummies

A sweet gummy bear squished between your teeth. Fred Flinstone’s orange-flavored, vitamin-infused body melting on your tongue.

Recalling these childhood rites of passage is enough to make anyone “feel like a kid again.”

Today, gummies aren’t just bears, and fun-shaped, tasty supplements aren’t just for kids. In fact, gummies and supplements have increasingly joined forces to help adults maintain and improve their health.

In the CBD market, their alliance adds another option for people who want to experience the health benefits of cannabidiol. Cannabidiol (CBD), a compound derived from the hemp plant, has the potential to improve a variety of conditions from anxiety to arthritis.

But are CBD oil gummies the best way to enjoy these benefits? As with most health decisions, the answer depends on a variety of factors. Read on to explore the pros and cons.


CBD – including CBD oil gummies – can offer a host of health benefits by working with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for “bodily homeostasis.” Simply put, it keeps the human body in “balance,” or “harmony,” with itself and its environment.

By producing cannabis-like molecules, the endocannabinoid system affects mood, appetite and metabolism, sleep, memory, the reproductive system, and the body’s immune-, stress-, and pain-response. CBD products, including active CBD oil gummies, can enhance these effects.

Patients using hemp oil CBD gummies report improvement in arthritis pain, anxiety, and sleep. CBD has also shown promise in reducing epileptic seizures.

Because CBD oil gummies may contain antioxidants, they also provide wide-ranging protection to major body systems. Improved cardiovascular health is among the potential benefits. CBD can affect brain health as well. In fact, research into the effects of CBD in Alzheimer’s patients is especially promising.

Other, less serious conditions also benefit from CBD therapy. For example, CBD can improve overall skin condition and may even alleviate acne.


Choosing the right method for consuming CBD and enjoying its benefits involves considering several factors. CBD gummies offer certain advantages.

  • CONVENIENCE - CBD oil gummies are portable. Rocky Ridge Hemp’s CBD Gummies come in a convenient zipper-sealed package. Besides being easy to carry, CBD oil gummy bears are also discreet. They look no different than their non-CBD cousins. So you can enjoy the health benefits of CBD while appearing to enjoy a fruity snack.

  • TASTE - CBD’s earthy taste is not unpleasant, but not everyone finds it appealing. For people who prefer to avoid the hemp taste, CBD oil gummies are an ideal option. Available in a variety of fruit and other flavors, CBD gummies make taking your supplements an enjoyable experience.

  • EASY DOSING - Gummies also make CBD dosing easier. People who use CBD drops or sprays ingested orally sometimes find it difficult to ensure an exact dosage. However, CBD oil gummies come pre-dosed. Each Rocky Ridge Hemp’s CBD Oil Gummy contains the 25-mg dose commonly recommended as a starting point for most conditions. Easy dosing means easy adjusting of dosage as well. If, as you begin using CBD oil gummies, you find that you’d prefer a stronger effect, you can gradually increase your dose – one gummy at a time.


Because CBD is derived from the cannabis plant, its legal status is a common concern people have before taking it. Currently, medical marijuana is legal in only 33 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. However, CBD is legal in all states.

Understanding the distinction requires understanding of two key components of marijuana: CBD and THC. Marijuana contains both, and both are derived from the cannabis plant. Both THC and CBD also have the same molecular structure.  However, their atoms are arranged differently. These different arrangements produce different effects on the body.

In short, THC is the compound responsible for the “high” marijuana users experience. When isolated from THC, CBD has no psychoactive effects. For this reason, THC-free CBD products and CBD products containing trace amounts (0.3% under federal regulations) are legal and will not give you a “high.”


Vape oils are another way to access the benefits of CBD. However, the smoke produced by vaping makes CBD usage less discreet and leaves some users worried about health risks associated with inhaling chemicals, including vitamin E acetate.

Most health decisions involve weighing risks and benefits. For CBD users who prefer to avoid any risks associated with vaping, CBD oil gummies offer an excellent alternative.


CBD Oil Gummies offer many benefits. However, other CBD options are available. The factors below may suggest another option is better for you.


A key consideration when choosing a CBD product is how fast you can expect results. Overall, CBD products demonstrate effects quickly – within minutes to hours. The time required for CBD to take effect depends on how quickly it reaches the bloodstream. This, in turn, depends on the method of delivery.

  • Inhaling CBD is usually the fastest method, showing results within 15 minutes

  • Sublingual and topical applications are next, requiring between 15-45 minutes to take effect

  • Ingestible CBD products take the longest with times ranging from 45 minutes to two hours

Users who choose CBD oil gummies should be aware that this method is among the slowest of all CBD products. With ingestibles like gummies, the amount of food in a person’s stomach can also affect absorption time.

One caveat to this potential drawback of CBD gummies: CBD gummies can take longer to demonstrate results. However, their effects can also last longer.


Like anything edible, CBD gummies contain calories. The amount is small (around 30-50 calories per serving), but users who consider such factors should keep this in mind.

The nutritional content of the other ingredients in a particular CBD oil gummies recipe is also a factor to consider. The best products use more natural than artificial ingredients and have a lower sugar content.


Cost, finally, is a factor when choosing a CBD product. Precisely because the “gummy” component requires other ingredients, gummies are more expensive to produce. This means they also tend to be more expensive to purchase.


CBD users report a variety of health benefits, and the research on these benefits continues to grow. Consumers also enjoy a growing range of options when adding CBD to their health regimen. For many, CBD oil gummies are an ideal choice. However, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons of each method and choose the product that is best for you.

Now that you know more about CBD oil gummies, it’s time to learn about other CBD products.  Each offers various advantages and disadvantages.  With those in mind, you can choose the Rocky Ridge Hemp Co. product that is best for you.
