People have a multitude of reasons why they prefer vegan products. Whatever your reason may be, most can agree that when it comes to gummies of any sort, those made with pectin are a better choice over those made with gelatin. In this week’s blog, you’ll learn why vegan CBD gummies are the best option.
Pectin VS Gelatin
When you’re a vegetarian, you’re astutely aware that there’s a huge difference between pectin and gelatin. Pectin, also called polysaccharide, is a fiber that is commonly found in both fruits and vegetables. When liquid is added to pectin and heated, it transforms into a gel that is amazing to use as a thickening agent in jellies, gummies, and jams. Since pectin derives from fruits and vegetables, it’s safe for vegetarians to consume as it is free of all animal products. Gelatin, on the other hand, is a protein that is created from animal products. Typically, gelatin comes from the collagen of animals. Collagen is one of the many substances that is found in bone, skin, and cartilage. Gelatin is obtained when the skin, bones, and connective tissue of animals are boiled in water. Since gelatin comes from animals that have been slaughtered, this is extremely problematic for vegetarians.
Why Pectin is Superior in the World of CBDMost of us strive to purchase products from companies that make an effort to put forth cruelty-free products. CBD companies that use pectin and other natural ingredients in their gummies show they care by widening their customer base through the inclusion of vegetarians and people who live a plant-based lifestyle. Interestingly enough, gummies that are crafted from pectin are softer and easier to bite and chew, while gummies that are made from gelatin tend to be more elastic and chewy. When it comes to taking a CBD gummy, most customers prefer gummies that are softer and easier to eat over ones that are stretchy and take longer to break down in their mouth.
Moreover, gummies created from pectin release their flavor faster than those made from gelatin. And, while gelatin-based gummies melt in warmer temperatures, pectin-based gummies can withstand high heat.
How FAB CBD Carefully Crafts Its Gummies
FAB CBD proudly offers customers two different varieties of CBD gummies. Currently, FAB CBD offers both an Anytime Vegan CBD Chew as well as Nighttime CBD Sleep Gummies. Both gummy varieties are created using pectin, are THC-free, non-GMO, fruit-flavored, and vegan. In crafting these very special CBD gummies, not only did the team at FAB CBD know that pectin was important to vegetarians, they also knew that pectin was a far superior way to give the gummies a softer texture, a more robust taste, as well as create a product that would be easier for customers to chew and digest.
Anytime CBD Chews VS Nighttime CBD PM ChewsDespite both products being pectin-based gummies, there are a number of differences between the two. FAB CBD’s Anytime CBD Chews contain 25mg of CBD isolate per gummy and can be taken at any time during the day without any worries about drowsiness. The gummies have a delicious, natural fruit flavor and are ideal for those who are on the go, who are hard at work in the office, or who are looking for an amazing post workout recovery supplement.
Alternately, the Nighttime CBD PM Chews contain 12.5mg of CBD isolate per gummy, come in a tasty Acai flavor, and are created using CBD, L-Theanine, 5-HTP, Melatonin, Ashwagandha, and GABA to help support a more restful sleep so that you can wake up feeling well-rested and rejuvenated. While the Anytime CBD Chew can be taken at any time during the day, the Nighttime CBD PM Chews should only be taken at night before bedtime. When it came to crafting their newest gummy, the team at FAB CBD knew only the best ingredients would do for their Nighttime CBD PM Chews. To that end, ancient herbs like Ashwagandha — that help to improve sleep quality — were included in the formulation as well as GABA and L-Theanine to help calm the body, and 5-HTP to help transmit signals between nerve cells, allowing for a more restful night’s sleep. Just as with all the rest of FAB CBD’s phenomenal line of CBD products, a wealth of thought and care also went into the creation of the brand’s Nighttime CBD PM Chews.
