CBD Oils vs. CBD Gummies: What’s the Difference?

Aside from the obvious – that one is an oil and one is a 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 oils and 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 the compound. 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 quality of CBD, 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 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 300mg of CBD in total, which means you’re getting 10mg of plant-powered compound per gummy. At Cannaray, we like to have all levels to hand so we can mix and match our CBD amounts day to day. Sometimes we take it lower with 20mg, other days we might go up to 70mg.

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 level 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 like the idea of taking oil and want CBD that’s able to be quickly absorbed by your body.

Choose the CBD Gummies if…

  • 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!)
  • You want your CBD to be quick and easy – and what could be easier than chewing a gummy?

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. We recommend you enjoy no more than 70mg of CBD per day, which means you can mix and match the formats depending on your mood. Try taking the gummies one day, and the oil drops the next.

Or, if you’d like to take both products in one day, try a 1ml (50mg) dropper of the Bright Days CBD Oil Drops, then just two of the (10mg) CBD Gummies for an extra 20mg. That takes you right up to 70mg; ideal if you feel the highest level is right for you. You could also take just half a dropper or one gummy – it’s all about finding your own routine.
