Timing Your CBD Gummy Ingestion

How Long Until CBD Gummies Kick In? And How Long Do They Last?

It’s no secret that CBD gummies are everywhere these days. Still, many people are hesitant to use gummies in place of a standard CBD oil tincture. One of the most significant factors that stop people from feeling comfortable with things like CBD gummies, is the lack of certainty about how long they take to kick in.

So, how long should it take before CBD gummies kick in, and how long can you expect them to last? Let’s take a look.

What Are CBD Gummies?

CBD gummies are a particularly interesting form of CBD because they are one of the few types that users directly ingest. While other forms of CBD involve direct absorption (i.e. sublingually or topically), CBD gummies are exposed to the digestive metabolic process. This can make it tough when it comes to figuring out how long gummies take to kick in.

How Long Until The CBD Gummies Kick In?

A whole host of different factors, from biological and genetic to environmental and dietary, impact the expected time it can take for CBD gummies to start working. A big factor is the fact that CBD gummies are imbibed orally by ingesting them. This means that their expected time to take effect can vary pretty drastically depending on when the user last ate.

More food sitting in their stomach waiting to digest means a longer wait before the effects are noticed. Furthermore, everyone has an individual rate of metabolism, which will control the rate that the CBD is absorbed.

Weight is another issue – CBD is fat-soluble, which means that it will tend to stick to fat molecules. Those that carry around a bit of extra weight might find that their CBD gummies take longer to take effect.

Finally, the actual CBD composition of the gummy plays a considerable role. Stronger CBD gummies will last longer, but their effects might take awhile to peak due to their prolific intensity.

How Long Will The CBD Gummy Last?

The rate that CBD lasts in the human body is dependent on its half-life, which is how long the body takes to work through half of the concentration of CBD. Unfortunately, the exact half-life of CBD has not yet been accurately pinpointed. Some studies shows that it can vary considerably based on the method of consumption.

On average, the half-life of CBD seems to be between 10 hours and 24 hours, though this is again entirely based on the method of consumption.

Final Thoughts: How Long Until CBD Gummies Kick In, And How Long They Last

Lots of new people are starting to try CBD gummies, especially in the UK, as the market has really blossomed in the last decade. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to pin down the specific amount of time that CBD gummies take for their effect to take hold. A combination of weight, metabolism, the CBD’s strength, and even just individual genetics govern pretty much every aspect.

Holistic CBD Beauty Therapy

When OLIVEDA founder, Thomas Lommel, discovered the active ingredient cannabidiol/CBD, he researched the great synergy effects that arise in connection with the legendary cell elixir from the olive leaf and developed a new beauty line for inside and outside:

LA DOPE is a holistic, highly active cosmetic based on the power of the two oldest cultivated plants in the world. It combines the legendary active ingredient cannabidiol from the hemp plant with the highly active antioxidants oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol from the olive leaf to create powerful beauty grenades.

LA DOPE­ provides protection and care with 100 percent pure effectiveness because all products contain the precious cell elixir from the olive leaf, instead of water. Due to the globally unique composition of the emulsions, LA DOPE works with the intelligence of nature, which intuitively recognizes the individual texture of the skin and its current needs. LA DOPE actively regenerates and balances skin’s texture on this basis.

True to the OLIVEDA tradition, LA DOPE is also holistically oriented, starting with products for internal use, and then devoting itself to the skin with various serums, oils and creams.

The synergy effect from the transforming energy of cannabidiol with the extraordinarily protective and regenerative effects of the cell elixir from the olive leaf makes LA DOPE the perfect CBD, holistic beauty therapy. For beauty that comes from within and radiates outwards. Dope your wrinkles from within with Oliveda and LA DOPE.

Jane Fonda × Uncle Bud’s

In celebration of National Hemp Month, Uncle Bud’s, the Made in America, mass market leader in Hemp and CBD, reveals its first campaign imagery with Jane Fonda, the brand’s newest ambassador. Shot by acclaimed photographer John Russo with styling by Cristina Ehrlich, who is named one of the top 25 most powerful stylists by The Hollywood Reporter, the campaign features two-time Academy Award-winning actress, author, activist, and fitness guru Jane Fonda, who was playfully captured with her go-to products from Uncle Bud’s Hemp & CBD.

The hero campaign image is a compilation of seven Fondas holding a different Uncle Bud’s product. The assortment includes the glow-inducing Hemp Enzyme Face Mask, the powerful and fast-acting CBD Body Revive Gel, the moisturizing and indulgent Hemp Body Lotion, the timely and in-demand cult favorite Hemp Hand Sanitizer, the original and hero product, The Hemp Topical Pain Relief, its counterpart The Hemp Roll-On Pain Relief, and the healing, digital age must-have, The Hemp Blue Light Face Mask. The eye-catching shot will live alongside the slogan “I’m FONDA Hemp and CBD” on a prominent billboard in Times Square and be used in the brand’s digital reach this quarter.

With the partnership kicking off during the pandemic, Uncle Bud’s, an innovative leader in the Hemp and CBD space was inspired to get creative in working with Fonda to release the collaboration. In lieu of a traditional photoshoot, Fonda was announced as the brand’s newest ambassador in May by way of a lighthearted video created by Fonda and shared on her personal social media accounts. The video was a fun play on TikTok’s viral ‘pass the brush’ challenge, and the partnership has lived on social channels until now.

In early June, the campaign came to life on set in Los Angeles, with Uncle Bud’s, Fonda and all parties taking utmost precaution in a safe and mindfully orchestrated socially distanced photoshoot.

Jane Highlighted some of her favorite products from the set: “This [the Hemp Roll-On Pain Relief] is my go-to for aches and pains. Just roll it on and go. No mess, no stiffness, no BS…I gave this blue light face mask to a good friend of mine. It protects your skin from harmful blue light that emits from your computer or phone. It’s terrific. So, if you happen to know *someone* who spends too much time online, get this mask.”

“We are excited to be able to celebrate National Hemp Month with the release of the ‘I’m FONDA Hemp & CBD’ campaign” said Garrett Greller, Co-Founder of Uncle Bud’s Hemp & CBD. “With COVID-19, this partnership took a different course to start but it’s allowed the brand’s innovation to shine through. The playful imagery is the perfect fusion of Jane Fonda’s personality and Uncle Bud’s product.”

Officially launching in September 2018 with one hero product, Uncle Bud’s Hemp & CBD has experienced unequivocal growth. In less than two years, the brand has grown to now include over 72 Hemp & CBD products powered by the proprietary formula, CANATREX™, retailed in more than 15,000 stores nationally, and the company has continued to outperform its Q1 and Q2 2020 projections amidst the coronavirus pandemic. As a leader in the Hemp and CBD space, Uncle Bud’s takes pride in being Made in America, GMO Free, Cruelty Free and Leaping Bunny Certified. The full range includes Hemp & CBD products for skincare, personal care, and even pet care – all retailing under $30.

Jane Fonda is a two-time Academy Award-winning actress (Best Actress in 1971 for Klute and in 1978 for Coming Home), author, activist, and fitness guru. Her career has spanned over 50 years, accumulating an extensive body of film work and crucial work on behalf of political causes such as women’s rights, Native Americans, and the environment. She is a three-time Golden Globe winner, Honorary Palme d’Or honoree, 2014 AFI Life Achievement Award winner, and the 2019 recipient of the Stanley Kubrick Excellence in Film Award as part of BAFTA’s Britannia Awards. Fonda will next be seen in the seventh and final season of Grace & Frankie and other past credits include the comedy Book Club for Paramount and the Emmy-nominated HBO documentary Jane Fonda in Five Acts, which chronicles her life and activism. Currently, she is leading the charge on Fire Drill Fridays, a national movement to protest government inaction on climate change. In September, Fonda will release her book What Can I Do? My Path from Climate Despair to Action through Penguin Random House about the looming disaster of climate change and the tools we need to join her in protest.

HEMP VS. CBD

On the shelf, both hemp oil and CBD oil look very similar. They are both extracted from industrial hemp plants grown in the United States, and they both claim to have the same purported health benefits? Which one truly offers you more with each serving? 

Although they look and sound similar, each designation refers to a completely different product. Here’s why you should consider choosing CBD oil over hemp oil

Hemp Oil May Be One of Many Products

Unlike CBD oil, hemp oil may refer to one of many different products. The designation “hemp oil” is given to oils collected from industrial hemp plans, or crushed hempseed plants. 

In this circumstance, “hemp oil” is a closer match to traditional CBD oil than hempseed-based “hemp oil.” A tincture or capsule derived from hempseeds contains only trace amounts of cannabidiols (the good stuff from CBD oil), and are primarily used in cooking oils, beauty products and paint. 

Hemp oil derived from hempseeds is noted for a completely different set of health benefits. Comparable to chia seed oil and flaxseed oil, hempseed oil is noted for a high concentration of proteins, fatty acids and amino acids. These compounds are all noted for their health benefits: Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils are good for joint health, while amino acids and proteins may help reduce the chance of cardiovascular disease. 

Where Hemp Oil and CBD Oil Differ

Even if you do find a hemp oil derived from natural plants, it may not necessarily be the same as CBD oil. Because hemp oil is often derived from hempseeds instead of specially-grown domestic Cannabis sativa plants, it may not contain all the benefits of CBD oil. 

Organic, full spectrum CBD oil are extracted from the full hemp plant. Leaves, stalks and flowers are processed to extract all of the cannabidiols out of the plant. In turn, users may receive the benefits of full cannabidiol, which have been documented in several peer-reviewed case studies. 

And while full-spectrum CBD oil does contain a trace amount of THC – the compound that creates the traditional “high” of cannabis – it’s not nearly enough to give you that feeling. The industrial limit for THC in full-spectrum CBD oil is 0.3% by dry weight, which is not enough to register on most drug tests, nor is it enough to give you that funny feeling. 

While CBD oil is safe for everyday consumption in most people, you should always discuss adding any product or regimen with your doctor. By going over your current medications and plans for CBD oil, they can help you decide if it’s right for your lifestyle. 

Should I Use CBD Oil or Hemp Oil? 

If you’re looking for an alternative to olive oil in cooking or baking, Hemp oil offers health benefits, and can often be found at natural foods stores. However, Hemp oil and CBD oil are not the same thing. 

If you are looking for potential health benefits from an oil that can be used orally or topically, then CBD oil is always your best bet. Before buying and product, make sure it actually contains the full spectrum cannabidiols, instead of just hemp seeds.
