Why Should You Avoid CBD Gummies That Have Been Dipped, Coated, or Sprayed?

CBD gummies are nothing short of a national phenomenon, and it’s easy to see why.  They deliver an effective serving of cannabidiol that can deliver immense relief to the body and mind, all while coming in a tasty form and delivering up to 8 incredible hours of effects. 

Gummies are everywhere these days, which is understandable considering their demand, but it’s always important to remember that not all CBD gummies are created equally.  And, while it’s easy to choose gummies according to things like their ingredients and potency, both of which are almost always printed on their labels, one thing that’s not so easy to determine is how the CBD was added to them.  Because, as you’re about to find out, some companies take shortcuts when it comes to giving their gummies a dose of CBD, which can cost you a lot in terms of quality, effectiveness, and even flavor.

What are the 4 Ways to Make CBD Gummies

CBD gummies can vary a lot from company to company in terms of how they’re made.  Each manufacturer has their own recipe that uses specific ingredients, and thus, chooses different flavors and milligram strengths.  Plus, some CBD gummies are full spectrum, some are broad spectrum, and some just contain CBD isolate, meaning that the actual hemp compounds you’re consuming can vary as well.

There is also another thing to consider: how the CBD got into the formula.  There are two primary methods: coating (involves either dipping or spraying) and infusing.  Let’s expand on that, shall we.

Method #1: Dipping

Let’s say you’re looking to purchase CBD gummies that each contain 25 milligrams of CBD per gummy.  One way for a company to give those gummies 25 milligrams each of CBD is to dip each gummy into hemp extract – either full or broad spectrum hemp extract, which is likely to be in the form of an oil, or, more popularly, a crystalline form of hemp extract, like CBD isolate.

Dipping already-made gummies into CBD seems like a fine way to give each gummy its cannabinoid powers, right?  Well, there are a two direct problems:

  1. Since those gummies rummage around their bag or jar, there’s a good chance that the CBD is coming off of them, since they’re not actually infused into the gummies, but are rather coating the surface.
  2. If it’s a full or broad spectrum hemp extract that is used for dipping, the gummy might taste bitter, due to the terpenes not having a chance to meld together with the flavoring ingredients in the gummy.

Conclusion: CBD gummies that have been dipped are likely to have lower potency (and therefore lower effectiveness), and less desirable flavor.

Method #2: Spraying

Spraying is just an alternative to dipping, that accomplishes the same result.  Spraying a hemp extract in liquid form, whether it be full spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate, still manages to keep the active ingredient – the CBD – on the surface of the gummy, where it’s likely to come off at some point, and where it’s likely to add a bitter taste should the company be using broad or full spectrum extract, both of which contain high concentrations of terpenes.

Method #3: Coating

Coating is a term you might hear a lot in this context, but it actually encompasses both spraying and dipping.  So, coating is not a third method for making CBD gummies, but rather a general term used to apply to both methods above.

Method #4: Infusing

CBD gummies that are infused with, rather than coated in, hemp extract, are more likely to be effective, and taste better.  Why?  Because cannabidiol is one of the ingredients in the gummies, so rather than the cannabinoid being on the surface of the gummy, it’s fully mixed into the rest of the formula.  As a result, the flavor is melded in with the flavoring ingredients, and the CBD is on the “inside” rather than the “outside” of the gummy, so it’s not going to come off.

How Can I Know if I Have a Coated or Infused Gummy?

Now, here’s the problem: companies are by no means obligated to advertise which method from above they use.  But, you can always ask a company by contacting them through their website.  Or, you can keep in mind that companies that infuse, rather than coat, their gummies with CBD, are the ones that are more likely to advertise that information on their website, to set themselves apart from the competition.
