Benefits of Hemp Gummies: A Beginner's Guide

Let us introduce you to hemp gummies: the grown-up fruit snacks you never knew you needed.

Hemp or CBD gummies are a delightful treat sure to have you reminiscing about lunchtime on the playground, except instead of a sugar rush followed by a crash, these gummies contain CBD derived from the hemp plant, and can promote balance and help maintain homeostasis within the body.

Here are the benefits you need to know!

How Do Hemp Gummies Work?

Hemp gummies are a fun and delicious way to incorporate CBD edibles into your routine. These gummies are made with hemp extract taken from the flowers, stems, and leaves of the hemp plant. These plant parts contain the naturally occurring CBD, terpenes, polyphenols, and flavonoids found in hemp.

While the hemp plant is a form of the cannabis sativa plant and can contain THC (which is the cannabinoid associated with psychoactive effects), hemp plants and products cannot legally contain more than 0.3% THC content. At this level, hemp gummies are not capable of causing any type of high, and instead offer you all the health benefits of hemp without any psychoactivity.

The hemp plant is also a nutrient-rich source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. When hemp extract is used in gummies, they become not only a tasty snack, but also one that is jam-packed with nutrients and antioxidants.

So how exactly do hemp gummies support your wellbeing? Like all consumable substances, hemp gummies are taken orally, and they then go through the digestive tract, where some of it is metabolized. The hemp’s bioactive ingredients, however, are absorbed into the bloodstream when digested. From here, they can get to work supporting the body.

CBD in particular can support homeostasis through the endocannabinoid system (the ECS). This internal networking system uses endocannabinoids produced within the body to send messages by interacting with cannabinoid receptors (CB receptors) whenever the body’s equilibrium is off.

Plant cannabinoids like CBD are chemically similar to our body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoids, and so they can easily assist the endocannabinoids in regulating body functions and supporting overall wellness.

Gummies typically take half an hour to an hour before the effects kick in.

What Are the Benefits of Hemp Gummies?

It isn’t too good to be true: these sweet treats can support your mental and physical wellbeing in a number of ways.

Eases Physical and Emotional Stress

The endocannabinoid system helps regulate discomfort and mood.

When we are experiencing physical tension or discomfort, endocannabinoids interact with receptors at the source of discomfort to help bring relief. And when faced with mental stress, the endocannabinoid anandamide is produced in the brain, and binds with CB1 receptors throughout the ECS when the body is experiencing high levels of stress to help reduce restlessness and regulate mood.

When the CBD and hemp oil from hemp gummies is absorbed into the bloodstream, it can support these endocannabinoids to help ease tension in muscles and promote relaxation and calmness wherever it is needed!

Sleep Support

No need to worry about a sugar rush when you chomp down on a few hemp gummies shortly before bedtime. In fact, we encourage it.

By helping provide a sense of calm, the CBD compounds in hemp gummies can help you slow down an active mind at bedtime and promote deep, restful sleep.

Having one to two hemp gummies around the same time each night can also help you get on a more consistent sleep schedule long term, and your body will thank you for those extra-restful zzzs.

Antioxidant Boost

Both CBD and the vitamins found in hemp extract contain antioxidant properties that can help combat free radicals. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can be produced within the body, especially when over-exposed to toxins like car pollution or too much direct sunlight.

Free radicals are capable of destroying healthy skin cells, which can lead to wrinkles and lines. And even more than that, free radicals can lead to oxidative stress, which can negatively impact heart health and immune function over time.

Antioxidants, however, can help stabilize free radicals without becoming unstable themselves. Once in the body, antioxidants can limit the harm of free radicals and oxidative stress, helping to protect the body from the inside out!

What To Consider When Buying Hemp Gummies

Certificate of Analysis

Because there is no standard dosage for CBD or hemp gummies, you’ll want to purchase gummies and other CBD products from companies that are transparent with their Certificates of Analysis (COAs).

These certificates show that the gummies were tested by a third-party lab, ensuring that high-quality ingredients were used, and verifying that the CBD dosage listed on the label is accurate and safe. Many of these tests also check for purity and contaminants like heavy metals.

Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, or Isolated CBD

Most hemp gummies use full-spectrum CBD, which contains all of the nourishing plant parts, including traces of THC up to the legal limit of 0.3%. When together, the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids of the hemp plant work naturally to strengthen the beneficial effects of CBD — this is known as the entourage effect.

However, if you prefer a gummy with no trace of THC, you can seek out broad-spectrum CBD or isolated CBD gummies, both of which have any trace of THC removed from the hemp extract before being incorporated into the gummy.


When making purchasing decisions on a hemp gummy, you may also want to consider the amount of CBD per serving.

How much CBD it takes to feel the effects really depends on the person. What works for one person won’t necessarily be right for another. Some people feel the desired effects of CBD with 10 mg of a high-quality product, while others may need 50 mg.

For many, around 30 mg is enough to feel the effects of CBD. If you are just starting out, it is best to stick with 10 mg at a time and work your way up slowly so you can gauge what feels best for you.

While studies indicate that CBD is safe at up to 1,500 mg per day, most people won’t ever need more than 100 mg daily.

Make sure you follow the specific product instructions for how many gummies you should take at once.

Other Ingredients

Some hemp gummies contain more added sugars than others. Some contain organic ingredients like organic tapioca syrup, while others are heavy in artificial flavors. When choosing a gummy, check out the nutritional label to ensure you are happy with the non-hemp ingredients included.

Because hemp gummies are digested before being absorbed into the body, it is also important to consider the other ingredients included in the context of bioavailability.

Bioavailability refers to how much of a substance the body absorbs. If the body absorbs a high percentage of a substance, it is considered high-bioavailability. If a substance has a low bioavailability, it may be metabolized in the digestive tract and passed through waste without enough ever being absorbed into the bloodstream to elicit meaningful benefits.

CBD is naturally low-bioavailability, and will largely pass through the body unused if not mixed with a fatty acid to help break it down into something the body can easily absorb.

evo hemp CBD Gummies, we use the essential omega-3 fatty acids naturally produced in the hemp plant and carried into the hemp extract to help boost CBD’s bioavailability.


Different hemp gummies come in different flavors, depending on the other ingredients included. Choose one that entices your senses! After all, you’re more likely to remember to take your gummy if you look forward to that delicious raspberry lemonade flavor to start your morning!
