Paleo & Keto CBD Gummies Recipe

Here is a recipe for homemade gummies that is good for paleo and keto diets and also filled with good nutrition and medicinal benefits.

What is a CBD Gummy?

A CBD gummy is a gummy candy infused or injected with CBD oil. Cannabidiol or CBD is an extract from the hemp plant, which is a non-intoxicating variety of the cannabis plant. It’s one of the naturally occurring compounds in the plant that interacts with the body to provide beneficial effects including relief from anxiety, inflammation, and pain, among others. It is non-psychoactive and will not cause a high feeling you can get from using marijuana.

Gummies infused with CBD is the most popular and easiest way to get your daily dose of CBD. It would take more or less 30 to 45 minutes before the gummies take effect in the body as they need to pass through your digestive system. There is no correct dosage for CBD but the recommended dose is 5mg and may increase up to 25mg depending on what you want to use it for.

Taking gummies each day provides health support, including pain relief, improved sleep, relief from anxiety and many other benefits! CBD gummies come in a lot of delicious fruit flavours like apple, grape, and cherry. 

Why are Paleo & Keto CBD gummies so good?

CBD gummies are a great way to get your daily dose of CBD, but some gummies don’t fit with different diets. The Paleo diet and the Keto diet are new and popular diets that can help you improve your health, making this gummy recipe extra healthy. 

The Paleo diet is plant-centred. It includes plenty of non-starchy vegetables (green, orange, red, and yellow ones), and fruits. The diet can also include unprocessed meat, nuts, eggs, seeds, and seafood. Paleo diet can provide gastrointestinal health and overall inflammation. It can also reduce blood glucose and cholesterol levels.

Another popular diet is the Keto diet. This diet includes high amounts of fat, a moderate amount of protein and a limited amount of carbs. After following the diet for a few days, your body enters ketosis which means that it has started to use fat for energy. This diet includes oils like avocado oil, olive oil, coconut oil, butter, heavy cream, and cheese. It also includes not starchy vegetables, meats, eggs, and fish.

Making CBD gummies that are Paleo and Keto friendly helps people stick to their diets and have all the benefits of CBD gummies as CBD is also known to improve blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol.  With so many fad diets, it can be difficult to know what’s right for you. CBD oil may help you reach your paleo and keto goals.

What are the tips and tricks for making gummies?

  • Use food-grade droppers because they typically have a large capacity for candies and can be found in candy stores and baking shops.
  • Your gummy bear moulds should be lightly greased with cooking spray. This will make your gummy candies pop out easier.
  • These gummy bears lack preservatives and can be naturally sticky to the touch. Heat and humidity can also cause them to be sticker so it’s important to store these candies in an airtight container inside and keep them inside the refrigerator.
  • If the gummy bears get sticky, you can coat them in cornstarch as they can absorb moisture without affecting the flavour.
