The dietary supplements market is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. With a history of only a few decades, it took by storm every continent. Considering that it is supposed to offer a natural alternative to traditional medication, we shouldn’t feel so impressed by this piece of information. Dietary supplements are advertised as entirely natural products which are specially created to improve or even heal almost every medical condition one could think of. In theory, this is excellent news, and natural supplements should become the first choice when dealing with an illness, but this market is still at its beginnings, so there are no strict rules and regulations to control it as it happens for pharmaceutical products. This means that some manufacturers meet almost no obstacle in making profit their primary objective and sell questionable products.
In the past several years there is a new star product in this industry, and it is called CBD. Due to its increasing popularity, all manufacturers included this substance in their product portfolio in various forms and concentrations. Right now CBD is the best-selling dietary supplement and for good reasons. Scientific studies discovered an impressive list of health benefits and almost no side effects at all.
CBD products come in various forms such as tinctures, oils, pills, vape-oils, lotions or other cosmetic products to suit best a particular type of health problems. The latest addition to this range of options is the edibles. These are candies for grown-ups, and their success exceeded the expectations of all manufacturers.
In our opinion, there are two reasons why CBD gummies are a big hit when it comes to dietary supplements. First of all, CBD is one of the most significant discoveries of our century when it comes to reduce pain and directly improve health. And the second reason is that manufacturers found a way to sell it like as candies and who would instead take a pill instead of a sweet and get the same results. Further, we are going to explain why CBD is so appreciated by users and also why the gummies are becoming one of the top choices, but we even must talk about the law in the USA, and more precisely the Iowa Medical Act which tries to set some guidelines on using this type of products.
In 2017 gummies started a new chapter in their history and they entered into the cannabis industry in the form of CBD gummies, a delicious and playful way of taking a therapeutic product. CBD edibles, especially the gummies are made of 100% natural ingredients, and a significant detail is that they contain no trace of THC, the substance responsible for causing the psychoactive effect of cannabis. This means that they are legal all over the US territory. It is essential to mention that CBD is a controversial substance extracted from hemp, a plant related to cannabis. THC is another active substance found in large quantities in this plant. Both THC and CBD are part of the cannabinoids category, but they have different influences on the body. THC is what makes one feel high when taking hemp or cannabis, while CBD seems to come with a comprehensive list of benefits for the health. .
At the time of writing CBD is not officially approved by the FDA to be used as a dietary supplement, and more large-scale studies are required. Even so, CBD is one of the most famous discoveries of the dietary supplement market
By taking CBD gummies or any other CBD product we prevent the breakdown of the endocannabinoids, and a state of homeostasis is induced. In other words, we achieve a balance between the physical and psychological systems. Usually, CBD edibles and gummies make no exception, aim to improve conditions like pain, stress or anxiety. Some recent studies found evidence that CBD might have an anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antioxidant, antidepressant, neuroprotectant, and antipsychotic properties. Please, be realistic and don’t expect them to be miracle pills. They will not cure severe medical conditions; they can only reduce the severity of individual symptoms.
