Oh I do love a CBD gummy! I have been aware of the Yumi Nutrition CBD gummies for a good few months, following their great images on Instagram, so I was very excited to give their products a try! This Manchester based brand provide a number of vitamin and supplement goodies, with this just one of a range of gummies they offer.
How Much CBD Do You Get?
Each gummy contains 10mg of CBD, while a full pack contains 30 gummies, therefore 300mg of CBD. This would work out as a full month’s worth, providing you stick to one per day. Their serving size is 1 gummy per day, but I do like to have a bit more CBD, so I took 2 per day for the duration.
As a general rule, you’re not meant to go over 70mg of CBD per day, but that would mean a hefty 7 gummies!
Most CBD gummies I’ve tried have been CBD isolates, partly as the terpenes that can be present in the full spectrum product can affect the flavour, however this product still tastes great and they contain other cannabinoids, helping you to benefit from the entourage effect.
Beyond CBD, you’ll also find 0.8mg of CBG in each gummy, along with a small amount of CBC and CBDA according to their lab report.
How Do They Taste?
They are strawberry flavoured, a great option to choose, meaning they taste just like a strawberry sweet you would buy during childhood. They’re not covered in sugar on the outside, so they taste a bit like a wine gum.
The taste comes from strawberry juice concentrate, listed in the ingredients, while they also use some apple juice regulator.
What Else Is Included?
The focus is inevitably on the CBD; however, it is worth noting that each gummy also contains 50ug of Vitamin D, 10mg of Vitamin C and 2.5mg of Vitamin E.
The gummies do contain glucose syrup and sucrose, so inevitably there will be a few calories in each, but I couldn’t spot the nutritional breakdown on the website.
Why Opt For Gummies Over An Oil?
The number one reason why people choose a CBD gummy over CBD oil is due to the taste. A lot of people struggle with the taste of CBD oil, being very earthy and certainly not to everyone’s liking. I’m a little odd, I don’t mind the taste, but I know I’m in the minority, so having a great tasting gummy does sound like a clever alternative.
Another reason is how easy it is to consume, you don’t have to carefully place some drops from a pipette, instead you just throw some gummies in the mouth and chew away. In fact, I’d recommend taking a look at my list of the best CBD gummies you can try, of which I’ll certainly be adding Yumi Nutrition to the list.
How Do I Take These?
While the general recommendation is just to chew and swallow, you don’t get much bioavailability from swallowing CBD, therefore I’d actually recommend treating gummies the way you would treat oil, by taking it sublingually. By this, I mean placing the gummies under your tongue and keeping it there for 1-2 minutes before swallowing. This should increase the amount that is absorbed into the bloodstream. You might even want to chew it up a bit before holding under your tongue for a couple of minutes.
Where Can I Buy These From?
You can purchase the Yumi Nutrition Recover and De-Stress CBD Gummies from their website for £21.99. They offer free 2nd class delivery on orders over £25, so you might want to add a few extras to your basket, otherwise the delivery costs 99p, or you could opt for 1st class delivery with Royal Mail for £2.99.
