  • Beginner Guides to CBD
  • CBD Questions and Answers

Aside from the obvious – that one is a CBD oil and one is a CBD gummy – there are plenty of differences between CBD oils and CBD gummies. These include:

  • How they’re taken
  • The strength of the CBD
  • What they taste like
  • How quickly they take to digest

Keep scrolling for the full lowdown on these differences, and how to decide which CBD essential is perfect for you.



If you’re a CBD beginner, one of the first things you’ll want to know is what kind of CBD to take. After all, the options can be pretty overwhelming when you look at all the CBD oils and CBD edibles out there. We’re often asked about our two biggest bestsellers – the CBD Oil Drops and the CBD Gummies – because, of all the products people are intrigued by, these are the two that are usually battling it out.

But what makes CBD oils and CBD gummies so different? Below, we’ve broken down all the details you need to know, so you can make your right choice.

Are CBD gummies the same as CBD oil?

They’re not the same format, of course, but they do contain the same type of CBD. Both our CBD Oil Drops and Bright Days CBD Gummies are packed with CBD isolate in varying amounts. Choosing between the two doesn’t mean compromising on the CBD quality, but it does mean making choices about the kinds of flavours you like or the sort of routine you’ll most enjoy.

So, what are the key differences between CBD oils and CBD gummies?

1. How you take them

Enjoying the CBD Gummies is as easy as taking one or two from the jar and chewing them. Quick, simple, fun; it’s just like eating a sweet, except with a boost of CBD goodness. Meanwhile, the Bright Days CBD Oil and Night-Time CBD Oil Drops can be taken sublingually. All you have to do is squeeze your chosen amount of CBD oil underneath your tongue, then allow it to absorb for 90 seconds and swallow whatever is left.

2. The strength of the CBD

Our CBD Oil Drops are our highest strength CBD essentials, with the Bright Days CBD Oil Drops (30ml) holding 1500mg of CBD, and the Night Time CBD Oil Drops packing in 1800mg. The Bright Days CBD Gummies contain 10mg CBD per gummy in the 300mg jar, and 30mg CBD per gummy in the 900mg jar.

At Cannaray, we like to have all levels to hand so we can mix and match our CBD amounts day to day.

3. What they taste like

We’ll make this easy for you: if you like sweet citrusy flavours, go for the Bright Days CBD Oil Drops (juniper and lime) or Bright Days CBD Gummies (juicy orange). For a tingle of peppermint, the Night Time CBD Oil Drops will freshen your breath pre-bedtime.

How do I choose between CBD gummies and CBD oils?

Choose the CBD Oil Drops if…

  • You want a higher strength of CBD in each dropper of oil. 1ml of Bright Days equals 50mg, and 1ml of Night Time gives you 60mg.
  • The sound of aromatic juniper and lime (Bright Days) or bracing peppermint (Night Time) flavours seriously appeals.
  • You want CBD that’s able to be quickly absorbed by your body.

Choose the CBD Gummies if…

  • You want your CBD to be quick and easy – and what could be easier than chewing a gummy?
  • You’re looking for a lower level of CBD, whether it’s because you’re a beginner or you just like taking a slightly smaller amount each day.
  • Juicy orange flavours sound irresistible. (Spoiler: they’re just as delicious as you think – if not moreso!)

But why not try them both?

You don’t have to choose just one; with the Bright Days CBD Starter Kit, you get the Bright Days CBD Oil Drops and CBD Gummies in one set so you can mix and match the formats depending on your mood. Try taking the CBD gummies one day, and the CBD oil drops the next.

Or, if you’d like to take both products in one day, try a half dropper (0.5ml equal to 25mg CBD) of the Bright Days CBD Oil Drops, then just one of the CBD Gummies for an extra 30mg. You could also take a full dropper or two gummies if you'd like to trial each product separately – it’s all about finding your own routine.
