If you’re looking for a new and healthy way to relieve pain and anxiety in your day-to-day life, CBD gummies might be something to consider. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the main chemical components found in cannabis.

Since the legalization of medical marijuana in Canada, we’ve seen an increase in demand for this product across all age groups within Calgary and surrounding areas. Whether it’s chronic back pain or general everyday aches and pains, many people are turning to these products as an alternative source of relief from their symptoms. This has prompted us at 420 Clinic to conduct our own research on this product and find out if all the hype is real, or just a bunch of marketing mumbo jumbo.
The following article will take you through our complete experience with CBD gummies for pain. We hope that by the end of your read, you’ll have a much better understanding of whether this product is right for you or not!
First things first – CBD works best when it’s combined with other cannabinoids in the cannabis plant itself. This creates a synergistic effect in which various compounds in cannabis combine together to create what we refer to as “the entourage effect.” The combination of these individual cannabinoid components tends to be more effective at treating symptoms than when isolated cannabinoids are used alone without any kind of combination. For this reason, it’s best to seek out a cannabis strain that contains more than just CBD alone. You can read more about this in our blog on the importance of strains here.
The next thing you have to determine is how concentrated your CBD oil/edibles are. It’s important to note that an effective dosage for pain relief with CBD gummies is between 2-20mg per kg of body weight. This means that if you weigh 70kgs, you’ll want to aim for between 140-1400mg daily depending on the concentration level chosen by the manufacturer. It makes sense then to purchase products with higher concentrations per serving so as you can take smaller quantities throughout the day and achieve similar results compared to lower concentrations. There’s no point taking 4-5 gummies of 500mg each if you only need 1-2.
