The pandemic has taken a big toll on Americans’ mental health, resulting in soaring numbers of people dealing with anxiety disorder and depression. These, plus stressor-related disorders are among the biggest non-COVID, health-related concerns of the past year as uncertainties of the future arise.
People have tried different ways to find relief. Among these is cannabidiol (CBD), which shows great promise in helping reduce anxiety and clinical trials have shown its benefit with disease-specific pain management, like cancer.
To help you out, we’ve listed the best CBD gummies in the market today. These use U.S.-grown hemp and contain no more than 0.3% THC, as verified by a third-party certificate of analysis.
PureCraft CBD is making a name for itself in the CBD game. Despite being a new company, PureCraft CBD has taken advantage of founder, cannabis veteran and serial entrepreneur Jason Navarrete's 18 years of experience cultivating cannabis to deliver high-quality CBD products.?
Navarette worked closely with top researchers to produce a range of effective, safe and delicious CBD products. PureCraft CBD lives out the philosophy “seed to sale,” offering high-quality hemp-based items without the "high." It uses nanotechnology, which exploits the particles' size -- into the tiniest millions -- to make the substance more effective and efficient. As a result, PureCraft CBD ‘nanotized’ cannabinoids quickly penetrate the body, providing greater absorption into the bloodstream. ?
PureCraft vegan gummies are infused with U.S.-grown nano-optimized-broad-spectrum CBD. They don’t use the conventional method of spraying gummies with simple isolate oil but instead have carefully formulated them, so they won’t have that bitter aftertaste without compromising the quality.
These vegan gummies are gluten-free and GMO-free. The gummies passed a certificate of analysis at Green Scientific Labs, where each gummy has 22.23mg of cannabinoids.
