CBD Gummies vs. CBD Oil: Which is Right For You?

Are you interested in incorporating CBD as an all-natural supplement to your routine, but torn between the delightful charm of CBD gummies and the smooth sophistication of CBD oil? The ever-expanding world of CBD products brings with it some slightly bewildering choices, and it can be easy to feel somewhat lost when making your first purchase.

Both CBD edibles and CBD oils offer potential health benefits and are widely used for various purposes. However, each has its unique characteristics and delivery methods. In this article, we'll explore the different aspects of CBD oil and CBD gummies, weighing the pros and cons, and helping you discover which product aligns best with your lifestyle and needs.

What, Exactly, is CBD? 

Before diving into the comparison, it's essential to understand what CBD is. CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the many cannabinoids naturally present in the Cannabis sativa strain of cannabis. It closely interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex network of receptors that regulates various physiological processes, such as mood, sleep, appetite, metabolism and pain perception. CBD's interaction with the ECS may offer several potential benefits including stress relief, pain management, improved sense of relaxation and better-quality sleep.

CBD is also non-intoxicating (unlike its sister compound THC) and fully legal in the UK, as long as the product contains no more than 0.2% THC. Therefore it’s no surprise that in recent years, the popularity of CBD-infused products has surged, with more and more users enjoying the desired therapeutic effects.

CBD Gummies 

How CBD Gummies are Made

CBD gummies are – just as their name implies - edible sweets infused with CBD oil. The manufacturing process involves extracting CBD from the cannabis plant and then infusing it into the gummy mixture. As a result, each gummy contains a specific amount of CBD. 

Flavours and Dosage

One of the main attractions of CBD gummies is the wide range of flavours available. From fruity options like strawberry and mango to classic flavours like gummy bears, there is something for everyone. Additionally, CBD gummies come in various dosages, allowing users to choose the strength that best suits their needs.

Pros and Cons of CBD Gummies 


  • Convenient and discreet consumption
  • Precise dosage control
  • Pleasant taste and flavour variety
  • No distinct hemp aftertaste


  • Longer onset time compared to CBD oil
  • May contain added sugars and artificial ingredients 


Extraction Methods and Types of CBD Oil

CBD oil can be extracted using different methods, such as CO2 extraction or solvent-based methods. These methods determine the purity and quality of the final product. There are three main types of CBD oil: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum and CBD isolate. Full-spectrum contains all the naturally occurring compounds in the Cannabis sativa plant, including trace amounts of THC. Broad-spectrum contains multiple cannabinoids but is THC-free, while CBD isolate is pure CBD with no other compounds.

At Mission C, we are committed to using only the finest, organically-extracted broad-spectrum CBD or pure CBD isolate within our products. With non-detectable THC levels, our offerings are an ideal choice, especially for those who may encounter occasional workplace or athlete drug tests.

By incorporating broad-spectrum CBD into our CBD oils, we offer a remarkable opportunity to unlock enhanced benefits through a fascinating phenomenon known as the entourage effect. This effect arises from the presence of various naturally-occurring cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes, which work together synergistically to amplify each other's efficacy.

How to Consume CBD Oil

CBD oil is typically administered sublingually by placing a few drops under the tongue and holding it there for approximately 60 seconds. This method allows for rapid absorption through the sublingual blood vessels, providing quicker effects compared to oral consumption, which requires the compound to travel through the digestive system before reaching the bloodstream.

Pros and Cons of CBD Oil 


  • Fast onset of effects
  • Versatile – can be used sublingually or added to food and beverages
  • Wide range of concentrations and types available 


  • Earthy taste and hemp flavour
  • Requires careful measurement to control dosage accurately

Key Differences

Absorption and Bioavailability 

One of the significant differences between CBD gummies and CBD oil is how they are absorbed by the body. As mentioned earlier, CBD gummies pass through the digestive system before reaching the bloodstream, resulting in slower absorption. On the other hand, CBD oil taken sublingually enters the bloodstream more quickly, providing faster effects. 

Onset of Effects 

Due to differences in absorption, the onset of effects also varies between the two. CBD gummies may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to take effect, while CBD oil's effects can be felt within 15-45 minutes.

Portability and Convenience

CBD gummies are incredibly convenient and discreet, making them ideal for on-the-go use. They do not require any additional tools or measurements. In contrast, CBD oil bottles may be less portable and may require a dropper for accurate dosing.

Which One to Choose? 

The choice between CBD gummies and CBD oil ultimately depends on personal preferences and lifestyle. If you prefer a tasty and easy-to-consume option with precise dosing, CBD gummies are a great choice. However, if you value faster onset and more versatility in consumption, CBD oil might be the better option for you.

Remember, you’re not limited to either product either. For those who have become seasoned users of CBD and have a good grasp of their ideal dosage, CBD gummies can be a delightful top-up addition to their CBD oil routine. Imagine this: you've already incorporated CBD oil into your daily regimen, and it perfectly complements your lifestyle. You know precisely how much to take and when, but sometimes, you desire an extra touch of sweetness and convenience. This is where CBD gummies step in as the perfect sidekick to your CBD oil journey. Their pre-measured doses ensure consistent intake, making it easy to control and fine-tune your CBD consumption. Whether you're on the go, at work or winding down at home, these delectable treats are discreet and hassle-free.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, both CBD gummies and CBD oil offer unique advantages, and choosing the right one comes down to your individual needs and preferences. Regardless of your choice, it's essential to start with a lower dosage and gradually increase as needed. As you gain a greater understanding of your perfect dosage, you might even begin to combine the two products if it suits your lifestyle. Always remember to consult your doctor or a healthcare professional before incorporating any CBD product into your wellness routine, especially if you are taking any prescribed medicines, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
