CBD Gummies For Your Vegan And Organic Lifestyle
Living a vegan lifestyle is truly an honorable way of life.
Whether your reason for being vegan is to lower your carbon footprint, combat climate change, express your compassion for every living creature, simply live a healthier life, or any other reason, every vegan and vegetarian struggles with the same thing: finding non animal based products that fit their lifestyle.
Until recently, vegans have struggled to find vegan alternatives at grocery stores, their favorite restaurants, and everyday items.
Luckily in our industry, many products are vegan. After all, cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound directly extracted from the hemp plant, so most CBD oils on the market are vegan by nature.
With that being said, the CBD market is much more than just CBD oils. CBD products today include CBD edibles, topical acne-killing creams, capsules, gels, and, of course, the super-popular CBD gummies.
Here lies the problem.
You see, although the CBD is a vegan ingredient, the process of making some of these particular products is not.
For instance, most capsules are made out of something called bovine gelatin, which, by definition, “is a protein product produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen, a protein material extracted from animal tissue such as skin and bone.”, making most capsules not vegan friendly. On a similar note, many CBD creams and gels are made using animal products such as beeswax.
So too are most CBD gummies- 10/10 cbd gummies that are not labeled as vegan will contain an animal derived ingredient called gelatin, taken from the bones, and hide. This can be a significant factor not only for vegans, but for those who live kosher or halal lifestyles as well. Most gelatin in candy is taken from porcine, or bovine hide, thus rendering the candy not suitable for vegetarians or vegans.
As we’re sure you know, CBD is an extremely hot product right now, and CBD gummies are a fan favorite amongst CBD-consumers, so it’s clear why CBD-users that live a vegan lifestyle may be frustrated with the lack of vegan-friendly CBD products.
