ZenBears contain all the goodness of the hemp plant, minus the THC. We remove all THC during the extraction process, backed by third-party lab reports to prove it. ZenBears are manufactured in a British facility where each individual bear is pharmaceutically coated with 20mg of CBD (cannabidiol) for maximum absorption.
ORGANIC FARMING PRACTICES
ZenBears are a multicultural bunch. They’re made exclusively from hemp grown using organic farming methods across various farms in Oregan, USA, creating a continental cocktail of cannabinoids, terpenes, waxes and fatty acids.
ISO-CERTIFIED CO2 EXTRACTION
Next, our carefully crafted hemp makes its way to an ISO-certified facility where the gold-standard CO2 process is used to extract CBD and other phytochemicals, using low temperature and pressure to preserve the beneficial compounds of the plant.
What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of over 130 cannabinoids naturally found in cannabis plants.
What are gummies?
CBD gummies are sweet edibles that have been infused or coated with cannabidiol (CBD), a beneficial, non-intoxicating cannabis compound. They provide a tasty, easy-to-use alternative to CBD oil.
Zenbears CBD gummies, in particular, are pharmaceutically coated with CBD instead of infused, this results in an increased bioavailability as a high percentage of CBD is absorbed through your gums and under your tongue while chewing and sucking on the gummies.
What do gummies do?
CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, found naturally in the hemp plant. When you chew on a CBD gummy, it releases CBD into your mouth. You absorb most of the CBD into your bloodstream through your gums and through the blood vessels under your tongue. When you swallow the gummy, any remaining CBD travels through your digestive system, before making its way to your bloodstream.
Once in your body, the CBD from your gummies interacts with a system called the endocannabinoid system, or the ECS. Your ECS has its own cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids, that act as chemical messengers and keep your body in balance. They regulate things like pain, temperature, appetite and sleep.
CBD and THC can act on your ECS in a similar way to your own endocannabinoids. That’s why you might notice that your appetite or alertness, for example, are affected when you consume them.
Can I buy these gummies legally in the UK?
Yes! CBD products, like CBD gummies, are perfectly legal to buy in the UK as long as they meet the following conditions:
The CBD comes from EU-approved strain of hemp with less than 0.2% THC content. There’s no more than 1mg of THC in the total container.
ZenBears CBD Gummies meet these requirements, so you can legally enjoy them here in the UK. However, tests have shown that some brands contain more THC than they claim to, with some containing illegally high levels. Always buy from a brand that shares independent, third-party lab reports so you can be 100% sure that you’re buying a legally compliant product.
What are their benefits?
CBD can interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system is made up of endocannabinoids that your body produces, the cannabinoid receptors they activate, and the enzymes that build and break them down.
The ECS regulates many essential processes such as sleep, metabolism, stress, and immunity to keep your body in a healthy state of balance called homeostasis. CBD has been shown to elevate endocannabinoid levels, helping support the functions of the ECS.
CBD may also produce other beneficial effects by interacting with various receptors and other molecules in your body. For example, it can affect your serotonin receptors. CBD gummies provide all of the same benefits as other forms of CBD, such as oils and capsules. More specifically
Can they harm you?
CBD and CBD gummies are generally considered safe for healthy adults. Although we’re not aware of any dangers, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends that adults take no more than 70mg of CBD daily (that’s 3.5 ZenBears).
However, if you take medications, CBD can affect how well they work. Depending on the medication, this could lead to unwanted side effects, or make your medication less effective. In this case, it’s best to discuss CBD with your doctor before taking CBD gummies, just to be safe.
Can you drive after taking them?
At higher doses, CBD can cause tiredness or drowsiness that could make it unsafe to drive. CBD isn’t mentioned specifically in driving laws like alcohol and cannabis, for example, but if you were to be involved in an accident because you were drowsy from CBD, you could still find yourself in legal trouble for driving while impaired or with lack of due care.
You should also keep in mind that CBD might affect you differently based on lots of different factors, like whether you’ve eaten or how tired you are. What might be a manageable dose one day could make you feel drowsy the next. And if you’re new to CBD, you have no way of knowing how you’ll be affected.
In our opinion, it’s best to avoid driving while using CBD gummies. If you must, then make sure that you know exactly how CBD affects you before you get behind the wheel, and take the very minimum dose possible. If you’re in any doubt at all about your fitness to drive, just don’t do it!
Do they help with stress?
When we’re chronically stressed, the body experiences high levels of the stress hormone cortisol. This can make us anxious and affect our sleep, which can in turn make us even more stressed.
Lots of people claim that CBD gummies help them to feel less stressed. Scientists are studying how this might work, but there’s still a lot we don’t know about how CBD affects the body and brain. The most popular theories are that CBD may act directly to reduce cortisol, or it might work indirectly to relieve anxiety or promote good sleep. It may even be the case that it does all three, but only more research will tell us for sure.
Are they good for anxiety?
Lots of people anecdotally report that CBD gummies help with their anxiety. There have been some studies into CBD and anxiety that appear promising, but we should point out that more research is needed before we can say for sure whether CBD gummies will help to relieve your anxiety.
Do they eliminate pain?
CBD may help to regulate pain signals in the endocannabinoid system (ECS), and it may interact with receptors that regulate inflammation. However, research is ongoing, and there’s still a lot we don’t know about CBD and pain. That said, many people report anecdotally that CBD gummies and other CBD products help to alleviate their chronic pain, so we’re hopeful that more research may confirm this in the future.
Do they assist with sleep?
Lots of people anecdotally report that CBD helps them sleep. Scientists are still researching whether this is the case, and how that might work, but they have a few theories. First, they’re exploring whether CBD helps sleep directly by influencing hormones like serotonin and GABA. Second, they’re studying whether it can help indirectly, by relieving problems that can affect sleep, like pain and anxiety (see above).
What can a first-time user expect?
CBD can affect everybody differently, so it’s hard to say exactly what you can expect from CBD gummies the first time you take them. Some people report feeling drowsy or nauseous, but this is more likely to be due to dosage rather than a bad reaction to the gummies themselves.
If you’re new to CBD, we recommend starting low and slow, and then working your way up. For most people, 10mg is a good starting dose (that’s half a ZenBear).
Take 10mg and wait a few hours to see how you feel. If you’re happy with the effects, you might be happy to stop at 10mg. If you don’t feel anything, or you think you can tolerate a higher dose, build up to 20mg.
Keep working your way up very slowly until you reach a dose that’s comfortable for you. If you reach a point where you experience unwanted effects, drop back down to the last comfortable dose and stay there.
We’re not aware of any dangers from going over this dose, but keep in mind that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends that adults take no more than 70mg of CBD daily (that’s 3.5 ZenBears).
Can children take CBD gummies?
CBD is not known to be harmful to children, and is in fact used medicinally to treat certain health conditions. That said, these are well-researched medications given under the supervision of medical professionals. When it comes to commercial CBD products, the experts recommend a bit more caution.
While it’s not illegal to give your child CBD gummies, the CBD network Canex and the World Health Organization (WHO) both advise against it. Ultimately, it’s a personal decision, but you should be keep a couple of things in mind if you do decide to go ahead.
The recommended doses on most products are aimed at adults, and children would need far less due to their lower body weight. Children would also need to consume far less THC than an adult to experience psychoactive effects, and there are concerns about this can affect their developing brains.
If you give your child CBD, make sure to choose a product made with broad-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate to keep THC exposure to an absolute minimum. And of course, only buy from brands that publish independent, third-party lab reports so that you can verify that they’re actually THC-free.
How do I take CBD gummies?
CBD gummies are incredibly convenient because you can take them anywhere and anytime. You don’t need to do anything complicated — simply chew and swallow.
However, because CBD is a fat-soluble compound, it’s easier for your body to absorb alongside fats.
Research studies have shown that taking oral CBD products alongside food containing fats may significantly improve CBD’s absorption. That means you’ll get greater effects when eating CBD gummies with a fat-containing meal.
How much CBD should I take?
If you’re new to CBD gummies or CBD in general, the best dosing approach is to start low and go slow.
Begin by taking one half of a gummy and see how it makes you feel. If you don’t notice a difference, you can incrementally increase the dose while paying attention to any effects you might feel.
Be sure to wait a few hours after each dose to give enough time for CBD to start working. Use this method to find the minimal amount that gives you the effects you’re looking for.
You should also be aware that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends that adults take no more than 70 mg of CBD daily.
How long does it take for CBD gummies to start working?
When you chew a ZenBears CBD gummy, most of the CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream via your gums and the blood vessels under your tongue. This is the fastest way to absorb CBD into your system, so you should start to feel the effects of your CBD gummies in around 30 minutes.
Any CBD that isn’t absorbed in your mouth will have to pass through your digestive system before it enters your bloodstream. This means it might take longer for the gummies to work if you swallow them quickly, so be sure to chew them thoroughly first for best results.
How long do the effects of CBD gummies last?
On average, the effects of CBD gummies last for 4-8 hours.
What is the difference between CBD oil vs gummies?
The major difference between CBD gummies and CBD oil is how they’re absorbed. CBD oil is absorbed directly into the blood vessels under your tongue, whereas CBD gummies must travel through your digestive system and liver before reaching the bloodstream.
As a result, CBD oil tends to be better absorbed than CBD gummies and takes less time to start working. However, CBD gummies have several advantages: they’re more convenient to use, come with a delicious taste, and their effects can last longer.
However because, ZenBears are pharmaceutically coated with CBD instead of injected, a higher percentage of CBD is absorbed through your gums and under your tongue while sucking and chewing on the gummy which result in an increased bioavailability similar to CBD oil drops under the tongue.
Safety tips & side effects
CBD is a remarkably safe substance backed by a large volume of research. Although it may cause minor side effects such as tiredness or drowsiness, they’re unlikely to occur unless you take large doses of CBD. When consuming new food supplements it is always best to consult your doctor, especially if: You’re pregnant or breastfeeding. Have a serious medical condition. Take any medications
