For months, I’d been seeing a bunch of different people on Instagram rave about the Earlybird CBD gummies, and late last year I decided to finally try them out. After using them for a few months now, I can confidently say that I’m a fan.
I’ve been taking some form of CBD for a while now – I think since sometime in 2020. But Earlybird is my first time trying a gummy, rather than a tincture, and also my first time trying something with a little bit more THC mixed in with the THC. I primarily take CBD to get a good night’s sleep in. While I don’t really have trouble falling asleep, it’s more about getting comfortable and relaxed enough to stay asleep and get a full night of rest. So I don’t necessarily need something that kicks in right away, but I do need something that lasts a bit.
The Earlybird gummies are definitely a little stronger than any CBD I’ve taken before, but in the best way possible. They make me feel relaxed – mentally and physically, my whole body just feels looser – basically, they make me feel like I’ve had a glass or two of wine. It’s just enough to take the edge off, but not so much that I feel completely out of it. They don’t make me too drowsy or sleepy, but once I’m in bed and ready to sleep I fall asleep so quickly, and have such a great, sound sleep. I wake up feeling so comfortable and rested – it’s amazing.
The gummies themselves have 12.5 mg of CBD, plus 2.5 mg of THC, which is what gives that nice, slightly buzzed feeling (but still legal to buy in all states). They’re absolutely still low dose, but I personally would not take more than one gummy per night. You may even want to start with a half a gummy and see how you feel. They can take up to two hours to kick in, so don’t worry if you don’t feel anything at first – just be patient.
I mentioned before that this is my first time trying a gummy rather than a tincture (the liquid that goes under your tongue). That’s because for me, gummies can be hard to chew if the texture isn’t just right. Earlybird reformulated their gummies at the end of last year, though, and I am SO impressed. Not only do they honestly taste delicious (my favorite is the strawberry flavor), but they have the best, almost cloud-like texture that is so easy to chew. It’s a perfect added bonus to an already great gummy.
