Versions of CBD Gummies – Legal Or Not Legal

We have a big question when it comes to versions of CBD gummies – legal or not legal?

Let me introduce you to the fabulous world of CBD gummies. (Cue the dramatic music.)

CBD gummies are legal as long as they are made from hemp.

If they’re made from marijuana, it will depend on where you live.

Let’s talk about why and then we’ll dive into the three main types of CBD gummies in the US.

So grab a cup of tea, get comfy, and let’s get this CBD party started!

Hemp or marijuana matters

Marijuana and hemp are both from the same cannabis family and look similar but contain very different levels of THC, which is what people can get high from.

Before we explain the types of CBD, it’s important to explain that which plant your CBD gummies come from is a vital piece of information.

What’s important to be aware of is that CBD can be extracted from both hemp and marijuana plants, so it’s important to know where your CBD is coming from.

Hemp-derived CBD is generally more accessible and legal in many states like Alabama because hemp contains 0.3% or less of THC (the psychoactive compound in marijuana).

However, it’s also possible to extract CBD from marijuana plants, which also contain naturally occurring levels of THC.

This type of CBD being suitable for those willing to accept the intoxicating effects associated with marijuana use.

Ultimately, understanding the source of your CBD can help ensure you receive the desired health benefits while staying within legal or personal usage parameters.

Hemp-derived products are legal in all 50 states.

Marijuana-derived products and products with higher levels of THC vary in restrictions depending on what state you live in.

What are the 3 types of CBD?

Here’s the three main types of CBD gummies you’ll find on the market today.

Full-spectrum CBD is like a party where all of your family members are there. It contains cannabinoids from all parts of the cannabis plant.

1. Full-Spectrum CBD gummies

Picture yourself in a room full of your favorite people – your BFFs, your grandma, that hilarious coworker, and even your dog.

That’s what full-spectrum CBD gummies are like!

It’s the whole CBD gang, featuring not just CBD but also other beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids from the hemp plant.

Because it contains so many compounds, it provides an entourage effect that can help with stress, pain, sleep issues, and more.

2. Broad-Spectrum CBD gummies

Now imagine that same room, but this time your annoying cousin who always eats your snacks isn’t there.

That’s broad-spectrum CBD gummies!

It contains all the goodness of full-spectrum CBD, minus one important guest: THC.

Yup, that pesky psychoactive compound is left out of the party, making broad-spectrum CBD perfect for those who want to avoid THC altogether but still reap the benefits of the other cannabinoids and terpenes.

It’s like having your cake and eating it too, without sharing with your snack-stealing cousin.

3. CBD Isolate gummies

Last but not least, we have CBD isolate.

Think of it as the introvert of the CBD world – it’s pure, unadulterated CBD, with no other cannabinoids or terpenes crashing its solo party.

This is great for those who want the most straightforward CBD gummies experience or are super sensitive to other compounds.

It’s like having a quiet night in.

We know it’s funny to think about CBD gummies this way, but don’t you understand the different better now?

You can make a more informed, personally beneficial decision with that new understanding.

Which form of CBD is most effective?

There’s really no super simple answer, because just like you choosing your guests at the party based on:

  • what you want to experience
  • your personal preferences.

What form of CBD is FDA approved?

The only FDA approved form of CBD currently is Epidiolex, an anti-seizure medication only recently released.

Are CBD gummies illegal in the US?


Gummies are everywhere right now- vitamin gummies, melatonin gummies, CBD gummies.

The answer is hemp-derived CBD gummies are legal as long as they don’t contain more than 0.3% THC.

Make an Informed Decision

Just like there’s wisdom in asking your mom before you plan a party, always talk to your doctor before beginning a new wellness regimen.

So CBD gummies from hemp = legal

CBD gummies from marijuana = depends on state law

Always check for any state restrictions as well.

While it’s true that many people have found relief from all kinds of medical conditions after using CBD, it’s important to remember that no two bodies are the same.

CBD can interact with certain medications, and in some cases it may even be contraindicated for certain medical issues.

Addressing these potential issues ahead of time is loving yourself and using wisdom.

In doing so, you will empower yourself by becoming better informed about what products might work best for you—and your physician is the best person to answer those questions.
