Here Are The Top 10 Most Frequently Asked Questions About CBD Gummies According to Walman’s Apothecary

A CBD Gummy is one of numerous ways to consume CBD (Cannabidoil). Gummies containing CBD are a fun, convenient and portable method of taking your daily dose of CBD.

CBD gummies are simple and easy to take. Just chew and swallow. Our gummies come in a 20 mg individual serving. If you’re new to CBD, you can cut a gummy in half and start with that low dose to see how you feel. We recommend waiting 2 hours before taking more. If you’re not new to CBD, take one gummy, wait 2 hours to notice full effects and expect 4-6 hours of benefits. CBD gummies may be used daily.

CBD gummies begin to work with your body when you eat them. First, they pass through your digestive system and then the active ingredients (CBD) enter your bloodstream and interact with your body’s own network of cannabinoid receptors (Endocannabinoid System/ECS).

Since a CBD gummy must first pass through your digestive system, it can take 30-60 minutes and/or up to 2 hours to begin to start working. There are several reasons for this including your metabolism and whether you have an empty or full stomach when you eat the gummy. Generally speaking, it should start working within 2 hours. If you feel like you need more to get your desired result, you may take more after 2 hours. Keep in mind, the effects last 4-6 hours. With gummies, slower onset is typical although so are longer lasting effects. 

It’s best to store your gummies away from sunlight and heat. Choose a cool, dark place and keep the jar closed when not immediately consuming your daily dose of CBD gummies.

Aside from the usual personal preferences for gummy vs. capsule, both of these oral (taken by mouth and swallowed) usage methods offer the same benefits. Both gummies and soft gels are portable, discreet, pre-measured, and very easy to use. They follow a similar pathway of digestion through the gut before then entering the bloodstream. Also, both offer longer lasting effects with their slower uptake. Gummies, however, are chewable which makes them perfect for anyone who does not swallow capsules and/or pills. Gummies are also fruity and tasty making them fun to use. Additionally, a gummy can be held under the tongue and allowed to melt a bit, absorbing some of the cbd to be more directly absorbed into the bloodstream (chew and swallow the rest) thus making them even more versatile. 


When it comes to tinctures, uptake is quicker, generally 20-30 minutes and/or up to 1 hour, you can easily vary your serving/dose according to your needs, and you can also use a tincture topically (directly on your skin where needed). A tincture offers more flexibility along with greater potential potency due to the entourage effect of all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids working together with your Endocannabinoid System. 


Long story short, there’s no one perfect or ideal way to consume your daily dose of CBD. Many people like to use a range of products to support their journey, depending on their desired outcomes they may use tinctures, topical, consumables and/or smokables. There’s something for everyone. All in all, CBD Gummies are a fun way to experiment with CBD and can be especially helpful for those new to CBD to find their personal “sweet spot”. 

CBD Gummies offer similar benefits as other consumable CBD products (ease, set dosage, convenience, etc.) and are used for many of the same reasons by people seeking to experience the known and potential benefits of cannabinoids such as Cannabidoil (CBD).  

People use CBD products for a wide range of reasons and experience a variety of benefits associated with the intake of CBD. We do not promise to treat or cure any disease but we do invite you to experience what high-quality, properly sourced CBD has to offer. Each person is unique and results will vary. What we do promise is transparency and integrity. What we say is in the bottle, is in the bottle.

CBD is generally very well tolerated and there are no known serious side effects. Some people may experience fatigue or gastrointestinal distress (tummy ache/gas) if they consume more CBD than recommended. Always start with a low dose and go slow when increasing your dose. Pay attention to your body, notice how you feel and make adjustments as needed. Your body is a little different each day so paying careful attention to everything you consume is beneficial to your health and wellbeing. 



While there is no lethal or dangerous dose of CBD, it’s also not recommended to take more than your body can efficiently and effectively use. Given that it takes the body about 2 hours to begin to feel the benefits of CBD Gummies and the effects may last 4-6 hours, we recommend that you do not exceed 6 of our 20 mg CBD Gummies per day. If you are not getting the results you desire, please consider a one-on-one consultation with one of our product experts.



Our 20 mg CBD Gummies do not contain THC. While our CBD is extracted from the whole plant, the gummies are free of THC, making them an ideal choice for those wishing to avoid THC.
