What is a THC Gummy?

THC gummies are chewy, edible pieces that are often fruit-flavored and coated in a dusting of sugar. Containing tetrahydrocannabinol (aka THC), these gummies are often taken by consumers hoping it will help with pain, stress, and sleep. THC and CBD (cannabidiol) are both cannabinoids found naturally in hemp and marijuana. Unlike CBD, THC is psychoactive and will cause an impairing “high” effect. THC may actually have a negative effect on sleep quality and, for some, can cause an increase in anxiety. Full spectrum CBD gummies (which contain only a small, federally legal amount of THC) won’t cause impairment and are known to provide better sleep, reduced stress, and relief from certain aches and pains.
