DENVER — CBDistillery is promoting its new 30 mg full-spectrum cannabidiol (CBD) gummies as retaining terpenes.
Terpenes are often removed from many CBD gummies on the market through the distillation process, the company said on its website, but Denver-based CBDistillery includes the terpenes in its formulation because it wants the consumer to experience all the benefits the hemp plant has to offer.
A lot of plants contain terpenes, which are aromatic compounds, but many associate terpenes with cannabis because cannabis plants have high concentrations of them, according to Medical News Today.
Consumers can expect the same efficacy of CBDistillery’s popular full-spectrum tinctures in these single-serve gummies, said the company, which in June started selling trial packs so consumers could sample CBD at a low cost.
CBDistillery’s full-spectrum CBD is the company’s most popular product. The new gummies, which are lightly sugar coated, come in a 30-count jar. In addition, the company said:
- As a full-spectrum product, the gummies have an array of cannabinoids, flavonoids and other plant compounds plus an assortment of natural hemp terpenes.
- These elements work together to multiply the health benefits of CBD.
- The strawberry flavor is meant to enhance, not mask, the bold hemp terpene flavor and is now offered in an easy-access jar.
The United States remains the largest market in the world for cannabis products. If a convenience-store operator is considering selling CBD products, they should know the rules, which vary by state and change often, and be wary of manufacturer claims.
