Cannabis Infused Gummies

THC gummies are becoming a popular choice for newcomers and experienced connoisseurs looking for recreational and medicinal marijuana benefits. And as more states legalize marijuana for recreational and/or medical use, more people have access to these compact, convenient, and discrete cannabis products. If you are new to the world of THC gummies and want to learn more about them, look no further. In this article, we’ll explain what they are, why they are so popular, and answer some common questions so you better understand what makes them a go-to choice in the world of edibles. Let’s get started!

What are THC Infused Gummies? 

THC gummies are little chewy candies made with gelatin or using vegan-friendly pectin and infused with THC extract, a psychoactive compound found in cannabis. Mixing this extract with the rest of the ingredients ensures that THC is equally distributed, giving you an exact dose in every single gummy. Today, THC gummies are the most popular and versatile edibles because they come in fun shapes, different fruity flavors, and different THC potencies, making them appealing and enjoyable for recreational and medicinal users.

History and Popularity of THC Gummies 

The history of edibles dates further than the 1960s California type-dye-wearing hippies credited with cannabis-laced brownies. Cannabis edibles were used in ancient India as part of ancient Hindu tradition and consumed during popular festivals.

In the US, edibles were off to a rocky start. Although they were common in the 1800s and used to treat colds, hives, and other health problems, in the 1900s marijuana was prohibited and considered illegal.  It wasn’t until the 1950s that edibles “reappeared” in the form of a Hashish Fudge recipe in Alice B. Toklas’s Cook Book

THC gummies appeared on the California cannabis scene when recreational marijuana became legal in 2016. The legalization opened new opportunities in the cannabis edibles business with THC gummies becoming a practical and popular medium for cannabis infusion. Today, THC infused gummies are one of the most popular edible options for novice and experienced marijuana consumers for the following reasons: 

  • Duration –THC gummies last longer compared to other consumption methods. 
  • Smoke-Free Option – many people prefer THC gummies because they don’t have to worry about the health risks related to smoking.
  • Variety & Flavor – THC-infused gummies come in fun shapes and different flavors.
  • Ease of Use – gummies are easy to consume because you can just pop them in your mouth.
  • Price – THC gummies tend to have lower prices compared to other edibles, especially cannabis beverages. 
  • Discretion – because THC gummies are small and indistinguishable from candies, they are discrete and easy to transport. 
  • Longer Shelf Life – THC gummies last longer compared to other edibles. 

Benefits and Risks of THC Infused Gummies

THC gummies are not only popular because of their discreteness and convenience, they also have the potential to provide various health benefits.

Potential Health Benefits 

While more research is needed, there is growing evidence that THC gummies provide the following health benefits:

  • Pain Relief & Anti-inflammatory Effects – Because THC interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), it can help reduce pain perception for individuals suffering from chronic pain and inflammation caused by arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and even neuropathic pain. 
  • Anxiety & Stress Reduction  – THC can help reduce stress and anxiety by promoting relaxation and inducing feelings of calmness, especially for individuals suffering from social or general anxiety.
  • Improved Sleep Quality – Because THC has sedative properties, taking gummies may help improve sleep quality by helping promote relaxation, and regulating sleep cycles, and duration.  Also, CBN, which is found in THC, has been linked to improving sleep quality, making THC gummies a helpful sleeping aid. 

Risks and Side Effects 

Just like any cannabis product, medication, or substance, THC gummies can have side effects that can vary from person to person and are influenced by factors such as tolerance, dosage, and potency. While THC gummies can be enjoyed responsibly, some people can experience side effects such as “cottonmouth,” red eyes, dizziness, and increased heart rate. In extreme cases, THC can cause paranoia and impair cognitive functions. 

This means you have to be responsible and dose based on what you can handle. Similar to alcohol, if you “overdo it” there can be big risks and side effects. Whether you are taking cannabis gummies for recreational or medicinal purposes it’s important to understand how your body interacts with THC.  If you’ve never taken THC gummies or are trying a new brand, it’s best to start with a lower dose and increase it gradually. This can help minimize negative side effects and find your THC “sweet spot.”

THC Gummies FAQs

  1. What’s the difference between a CBD and a THC gummy?

While CBD and THC used in gummies are both parts of a marijuana plant, they interact differently with your body. Because CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t give you a “high,” it’s commonly used to treat anxiety, pain, sleeping problems, and even addiction. THC, on the other hand, is psychoactive giving you a feeling of euphoria and “high” while also helping treat pain, anxiety, and sleeping problems.

  1. What side effects do THC gummies have?

THC gummies can produce a range of side effects such as dry mouth, increased thirst, and increased heart rate. In extreme cases, cannabis gummies, which have a psychoactive effect, can impact cognitive functions such as decision-making, and for some individuals induce feelings of anxiety and paranoia.
