    Can CBD Gummies Boost Your Creativity?   

    With all the potential benefits linked to CBD ingestion, can improving creativity be one of them? Using gummies is one way to deliver CBD into the body, but what is the relationship between CBD and the brain? Can it increase the brain's capacity?   

    Over the recent years, the popularity of CBD has dramatically surged, ranging from hair healthcare and skin care products to edibles. One of the popular edibles is CBD gummies, edible candies that comprise CBD oil as their ingredients. They come in many flavors, colors, shapes, and concentrations of CBD. Gummies are easy to take and quite convenient for use; this is why they are becoming rather popular. They present an easy way to ingest CBD; no effort is needed, just popping one in the mouth and chewing to release the CBD into the body. Many benefits are tied to CBD gummies, but do gummies boost creativity? Learn more about how to make cbd gummies?

    Can CBD Gummies Boost Your Creativity?  

    What is CBD?

    Tremlová et al. (2021) defined Cannabidiol (CBD) as the second most predominant compound in naturally grown hemp plants. CBD is harnessed from the stalks and stems of the hemp plant, where cannabinoids are in high concentrations. These cannabinoids are CBD and THC, but THC is the psychoactive compound found in THC, which is responsible for causing a high sensation, while CBD is used for therapeutic reasons. After its discovery, scientific study has found that CBD can be used in treating a variety of health issues.  

    Types of CBD 

    There are several ways in which CBD can be extracted, including carbon dioxide extraction and steam distillation. Different types of CBD are extracted from these extractions and formulations; therefore, the strains are categorized into three main forms.

    Full-spectrum CBD   

    This type contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes present in the hemp plant. These CBDs typically contain all the compounds of CBD, including 0.3% THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive compound in cannabis, while CBD gives therapeutic effects to cannabis. You must understand that unless CBD is used with THC, it cannot cause any intoxication or impairment. The terpenes are responsible for smell and offer therapeutic and soothing effects to the consumer. Flavonoids are also other compounds found in cannabis but are also found in other natural growing fruits and vegetables. Full-spectrum CBD is highly beneficial as users benefit from the entourage effect. The entourage effect states that CBD with THC is more effective than CBD alone. Gummies obtained from this type of CBD also contain the same compound structure and effects associated with full-spectrum CBD.

    Broad-spectrum CBD

    This CBD also contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes found naturally in organic hemp. Broad-spectrum CBD contains all the compounds of CBD but what differentiates this type from full-spectrum CBD is that it doesn't contain any THC content. This means that any product made from this type of CBD lacks the intoxicating compound of cannabis. According to de Almeida & Devi (2020), broad-spectrum CBD is also beneficial as it contains other compounds of cannabis that work together with CBD to give better effects. This type of CBD is preferable for those who want to benefit from the compounds while avoiding THC. Broad-spectrum CBD is also suitable for health and wellness products as it is void of THC. Gummies processed from this type of CBD are of practical value and suitable for those who want to avoid THC.

    CBD Isolate

    This is the complete opposite of Full-spectrum CBD, as it is the purest form of CBD. This type of CBD doesn't contain any other compounds of the cannabis plant apart from CBD. The extraction of CBD isolate involves thorough procedures to produce the purest form of CBD, which is often expensive. CBD isolate doesn't contain any other compounds of cannabis, and it is because of this that products from this CBD type are not considered productive as those from full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD. CBD isolate gummies are suitable for people who want to benefit from cannabinoids while avoiding all the other compounds of cannabis, including THC. You will also have to ingest many gummies if they are from CBD isolate to achieve the desired effects.         

    Can CBD Gummies Improve Creativity? 

    Bass & Linz (2020) discovered that several people reported that their creativity increases after ingesting Cannabidiol Gummies, especially artists or people in industries that require creativity. This may be linked to whether CBD brings about relaxation or not. Undoubtedly, Roach et al. (2019) noted that CBD gummies are linked to feelings of calmness in the body and mind, which may foster creativity and productiveness.

    Creativity involves imagination and inventiveness, which is bringing the unreal into reality. Cannabidiol Gummy Bears are linked to the hyper-priming phenomenon. Priming happens when previous stimuli affect how people react to successive stimuli, and hyper priming is a greater version of priming where one can effortlessly make contact with unrelated matters.    

    Everything here about CBD gummies and creativity is just reports and more of theoretical and not scientifically proven facts. There has been little if not no research on CBD gummies that supports its claims of helping with creativity. It has not yet been proven whether the brain can improve the capacity to conjure greater thoughts. You must understand that the brain processes that is the divergent and convergent thinking or the creation of ideas appear to have a minute to zero connection to consuming any CBD gummies.

    You might wonder why there is no research on things related to CBD. This doesn't mean that nobody is interested in the subject. The reason why there is very little knowledge on CBD is that almost if not all, the governments are on a common war against drugs and drug abuse. Most research on anything Marijuana-related is always aimed at understanding more negative effects that it brings about. That's why research on these issues is dawdling. 

    Are CBD Gummies Good For Depression?

    There has been a drastic rise in the number of people with depression over recent years. The dramatically increased cost of living has pushed people to work harder to provide for themselves and their loved ones. Consequentially, most people cannot get a good night's sleep, which sets the brain into overdrive.

    Laczkovics et al. (2021) stated that Cannabidiol Gummies have anti-depressant and anti-anxiety properties. People with depression are known to have higher anxiety levels, and unpredictable moods and are usually unable to get a good night's sleep.

    CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the brain. This interaction triggers more production of serotonin. Lower serotonin levels are associated with people suffering from depression and anxiety disorders. Therefore, a rise in the level of serotonin would reduce anxiety levels and improve mood.

    People with depression are also purported to have inadequate sleep. Their sleep schedule is accompanied by restlessness and high anxiety levels. Cannabidiol Gummies raise melatonin levels. Melatonin is the hormone that triggers the brain to fall asleep at night. Higher melatonin levels dramatically reduce brain waves, inducing deep sleep. Deep sleep is important for the restoration of brain and body cells.

    Conclusion    

    Whether CBD gummies or CBD edibles help in creativity has no definite answer. Scientifically there is no proof of how CBD is related to boosting the brain's capacity. People respond differently to CBD Gummy Bears, and not everyone might think that taking CBD Oil Gummies will improve their brain capacity. After all, this is just a thought or more of a baseless fact. Until more investigation is conducted, there is no connection between CBD to creativity and brain capacity stimulation. Otherwise, you can still take CBD gummies for beneficial values such as relaxation of the body and mind, soothing muscles, reducing anxiety, and combating stress.
