Vegan CBD Gummies: How They Work by 'Sunday Scaries'

Most people loved eating jellybeans and gummy bears as a child, and now you can have them with the healing benefits of CBD!


There are hundreds of people who are loving the benefits of CBD capsules and oil, but now a gummy version of CBD is becoming popular because of how easy they are to use, their taste, and the numerous positives that align with the medical benefits of cannabis.  

In simple terms, CBD gummies offer the same benefits as any other form of CBD, but you don’t have to deal with getting the right dosage as you would with CBD oil or oil tinctures.  

Cannabidiol, CBD, is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD is different from THC because it doesn’t make you high. Instead, CBD is said to help treat numerous conditions, including chronic pain, arthritis, anxiety, insomnia, and more.

The effects of vegan CBD gummies should be similar to taking the same dose of CBD oil or capsules. For instance, when comparing a 20 mg gummy and a 20 mg dose of oil, the underlying cannabinoid amount is the same, no matter how it was ingested.  

We’re going to take a closer look at vegan CBD gummies and see why they’re becoming a popular method of nutritional supplement.

What Are Vegan CBD Gummies?

Essentially, CBD gummies are candies that have a pre-measured quantity of CBD oil in them – they also include other ingredients like flavoring, sugar, corn syrup, preservatives, and cane juice. CBD gummies don’t have any drops of THC, making most non-psychoactive, meaning they won’t have any psychoactive effects and they won’t mess with your consciousness.

Ultimately, CBD gummies help you avoid becoming high when you just want to relax.  

Why They’re Popular

There are a ton of new CBD products coming to the market every day. It’s a largely unregulated industry, which means that there’s no shortage of companies trying to cash in on the “CBD craze.” This has resulted in low-quality and ineffective gummies that are sold at a high price by fly-by-night companies.

If you purchase high-quality products from a trusted company, like Sunday Scaries, CBD gummies can offer natural relief from a bunch of ailments, and they’re a tasty treat.

However, because the FDA doesn’t control CBD extractions, it’s up to you to figure out the quality of the gummies you’re buying. Here are some things to look for when purchasing gummies:

  • You want to make sure that the gummies have less than 0.3% THC in them. Anything higher than this amount can be considered marijuana

  • Check to see if the gummies have been through third-party testing

  • Make sure that they were created with CO2 extraction; this makes it so that the product has no residual chemicals

CBD gummies are also more convenient to take than CBD oil and are easier to administer in terms of dosage. Why? Because they offer a pre-measured dose of CBD directly into your system, and almost immediately after you ingest the gummy, the CBD interacts with receptors in your body, as we’ve discussed earlier in this article.

Compared with other CBD products, gummies take less time to act, given that the digestion tract is entirely different. When you eat a gummy, your body absorbs the CBD – and the other active compounds – via the digestive system to reach the cells. Oils and tinctures need to pass through glands before they hit the bloodstream. Gummies are a great way to get fast delivery of CBD to your system.

Side Effects

CBD gummies have not been tested in a laboratory or clinical setting, but there has been some generalized research done on the side effects of CBD.

CBD can result in appetite and mood changes, dizziness, drowsiness, and diarrhea. On a more serious level, there have been some suggestions that CBD oil can possibly affect liver enzyme levels.

The consumption of CBD gummies has few notable side effects (according to the little bit of research and stories from users), but it’s still wise to use caution when using gummies because some can offer potent cannabinoid doses. For instance, while CBD gummies come in tiny doses, they can still contain up to 25 mg or more of active CBD – enough to make you feel drowsy or dizzy.

You should also keep in mind that many of CBD gummies are made using corn syrup and processed sugars, so you should always try to read the label of any product before you consume anything – this is especially true if you have diabetes or are concerned with the “nutritional value” of what you’re consuming.  With all of this in mind, if you want to purchase high-quality vegan CBD gummies to help you relax, deal with chronic pain, depression, anxiety, insomnia, and more, then head on over to Sunday Scaries to get started. 


❀ Spring ‣ Menu ❁

Out with the old and in with the new. The Spring equinox always feels somewhat cleansing; just as winter’s drawn on that little bit too long and the festive season is a vanquishing speck on an expandingly-bleak horizon. Suddenly, day matches night and the weight lifts a touch. It’s only going one way from here.

As ever, we try to reflect this gentle optimism in what little way we can through our shifting drinks selections. Out with those robust, deep flavours and earthy spice, in with lighter strokes: fresh mint and lemongrass, violet and forsythia syrup (it’s purple and has CBD in - woof), grappa!

On the list we’ve got a blended mezcal and reposado Sazerac; sweet and smoky with a soft verdant spice. A Boulevardier with the best - independently of each other - amaro and rosso vermouth we’ve ever tasted (Argala’s Amaro Alpino and Discarded vermouth in case you’re wondering). An armagnac or Sidecar-type sour with cured lemon paste, dubbed the ‘Uber XL’.

For the highball it’s our first ever go at a Collins with a distinctly Turkish twist melding sumac and grapefruit. That purple CBD syrup marries up to Reyka vodka and Birds botanical spirit in the crushed ice fix that is and only could be ‘Purple Drank’. Then to finish we sorta-made-our-own white creme de menthe by infusing ume sake with mint which pairs with that Domus grappa for a palette cleansing Stinger to finish.

The list in full starts this evening and will be available to taste up until the summer solstice (or thereabouts) when we’ll all dress-up like druids and wind-down for summer. If you read this and come down tonight (Thursday March 21st) ask the bartender when do the clocks go forwards? and we’ll give you something free to try. Call that an Easter egg for following us this far!

Chloé Martini ~ recipe

Our most popular serve this winter has been our dessert cocktail offering, synonymous with the alias of its’ creator. You’ll all know Anna as Anna but, by day, she sun-lights (sic?) as recording artist and producer Chloé Martini. Anna’s favourite drink was a Last Word, her favourite spirit Green Chartreuse. She’s worked here on her own version using pine and plum for this menu; more of a pallete-cleansing ‘Stinger-esque’ night-cap than an out-and-out sweet finisher. It was reasoned, as well, that this seasons’ CBD offering would be with this serve, just the tonic before cosying up in bed for a night of lucid dreams. It’s the first drink she’s made for us and certainly won’t be the last! Suffice to say her favourite drink now is a Chloé Martini.

Chloé Martini   Dessert Cocktail / Sweet

Chloé Martini

Dessert Cocktail / Sweet

2 oz (60 ml) London Dry Gin, preferably Victory; infused with damson jam (see note)

1/2 oz (15 ml) Green Chartreuse

1/4 oz (7.5 ml) BTW Pine CBD Syrup

3/4 oz (22 ml) Lime Juice

3 squirts Bittermens Krupnik Honey Bitters

Lemon Zest (for garnish)

Chill down a Nick & Nora or a small martini glass and set aside. In a cocktail shaker, add all the liquid ingredients including the bitters, pack with ice and shake vigorously until sufficiently chilled. Double strain the contents into your chilled glass, garnish with a lemon zest and serve!

Note: To infuse gin with jam take two bottles gin per 220g jar of jam (work up or down to that ratio dependent on how much gin you want to make). Combine the two in a sealed jar and leave over-night. Strain the liquid through some muslin cloth the next day and re-bottle.
