Today, we’ll take a look at why CBD edibles from cbdMD provide exactly what you need for your healthy lifestyle and why they are the only CBD edibles you’ll need to buy.

Choosing Healthy Edibles for Your Active Lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle is a combination of many small decisions and habits that together make a difference for your overall health. CBD edibles are just one way to get small measures of wellness into your day.
Naturally, you want to use the best ones on the market, with little added sugar, and that provide healthy ingredients for your active lifestyle.
Today’s Cannabis Edibles Are Different
While edibles used to be something to do occasionally for recreational purposes, today’s CBD edibles are a very different thing. Today’s edibles are more ingredient-conscious and meant to be used on a regular basis to keep the CBD and other ingredients in our systems more regularly so our bodies can reap the wellness benefits. In short, it is not about getting high, it’s about getting wellness.
What Kind of Added Sugar Is Used?
Added sugar is hiding in nearly everything we eat. But sometimes, a little sugar is needed to make a flavorful experience so the product is more pleasant to use. CBD oil, naturally, has a grassy kind of flavor that not everyone likes. Plus, there are other botanical ingredients and this combo may not be exactly tasty. So while we do add a touch for flavor, we opt for natural sweeteners in our CBD gummies.
Organic Cane Sugar: From organically grown sugar cane, which is less processed than regular sugar.
Organic Tapioca Syrup: Derived from the tuber of the cassava plant, tapioca syrup provides an alternative to more highly processed sweeteners and is lower in calories and carbs than regular granular sugar.
Note: Many other CBD gummies on the market use sucralose and corn syrups for sweeteners.
Talk with your doctor about sweeteners and whether or not CBD supplemental products that contain some added sugars are OK for your overall wellness goals. It could be that the benefits of the CBD are more important to you than the amount of sugars in them, but each person is different. Your doctor can help you prioritize your wellness needs.
Premium CBD Oil
cbdMD’s hemp extracts are organically grown right here in the US. We also process our CBD oils in one of the most high-tech certified GMP and NSF labs for manufacturing and production. We believe these standards are why our premium CBD oil products are winning awards for their popularity, performance, and innovation.

Full Spectrum vs Broad Spectrum CBD Oils
When choosing CBD edibles, first choose whether you want broad spectrum or full spectrum CBD in your edibles. The differences between them are small, but significant in terms of overall benefits and how you feel when you use them.
Full spectrum gummies: Made with hemp extract that contains CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC, and a smidgen of THC. Choose full spectrum for extra calming, sleep support, and support for pre and post workout. However, if you are sensitive to THC, opt for broad spectrum CBD instead. Both are only for users over 21.
Broad spectrum gummies: Made with superior broad spectrum hemp extract, consisting of CBD, CBG, CBN, and terpenes. These are the best for people who are THC-sensitive or who are not allowed by their employers or organizations to use THC products.

All Natural Ingredients
Healthy edibles will have more natural ingredients, not a lot of chemicals or artificial additives.
Scan the labels of the CBD edibles to see that most or all of the ingredients are natural. Choose options with simple ingredients you trust and feel comfortable using. If in doubt, ask your doctor!
Here’s a good example of what you will find in cbdMD’s edibles, from the sour gummies:
All Ingredients: Hemp Extract (Cannabidiol, Cannabigerol, Cannabinol), Organic Tapioca Syrup, Organic Cane Sugar, Water, Pectin, Natural Flavors, Organic Fruit, and Vegetable Juice (for color), Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Malic Acid, Organic Sunflower Oil, and Organic Carnauba Wax.
Note, there are no artificial dyes mentioned. Gummy manufacturers often add artificial dyes to make their gummies bright and colorful because it’s fun and interests the buyer. We err on the side of your health and opt for natural flavors and colors.
Creating shelf-stable cannabis gummies is a challenge, but again, we err on the side of your health for this one too. Citric acid is a food preservative that we use in our gummies to keep them safe for you to use. We avoid other artificial preservatives that are less safe for your health. The balance is to make sure what we use protects both your health and the shelf-life of our CBD gummies so that you can use them safely.
Also, see what other ingredients are in them that can support your needs and help you feel your best. You can mix and match which gummies you prefer to use, but be aware of the amount of overall CBD you are using each day. The amount of CBD per gummy is on the packaging and label for your CBD gummy products.
