While THC may get the most cannabis attention, a ton of really exciting research into many other cannabinoids, such as CBC, CBG and CBN, are coming to light. Wyld is already tapping into some of these cannabinoids and bringing them to consumers through its gummy line. I’ve been obsessed with minor cannabinoids and their potential for a long time, so I picked up samples from nuEra Champaign of Wyld’s 1:1 THC:CBG and 2:1 THC:CBN gummies to review.
Wyld produces a 1:1 THC:CBG pear flavored gummy with 10mg of THC and 10mg of CBG. Wyld also produce a 2:1 THC: CBN elderberry gummy with 10mg of THC and 5mg of CBN. Both come in packages of 10. The ingredients in the pear gummies are sugar, tapioca syrup, water, pear juice concentrate, gelatin, natural flavoring, citric acid, coconut oil, pectin (pectin, sodium citrate), cannabis extract oil, sunflower lecithin. The ingredients in the elderberry gummies are sugar, tapioca syrup, water, elderberry juice concentrate, gelatin, natural flavoring, coconut oil, citric acid, malic acid, pectin (pectin, sodium citrate), cannabis extract oil, hemp extract oil, sunflower lecithin
Both jars brimmed with sugarcoated rectangles, their hues as contrasted as their flavors. The CBG Pear showcased muted beige reminiscent of ripe pear flesh, while the elderberry gummies boasted a deep, royal purple. Wyld balances the texture in its gummies well, which I’ve noted before. These were the closest in texture to commercially packaged gummy candies that I’ve found in the state.
The CBG pear gummies presented an initial flavor reminiscent of sweetened pear juice, followed by a herbal and mildly bitter undertone of cannabis oil. Among all the Wyld gummies I’ve sampled, the CBN elderberry gummies had the most robust flavor. The combination of black currant, blackberry, and elderberry brought a tartness that effectively balanced out the previously encountered bitter cannabis oil flavor and these had a staying power that remained on the palate long after the gummy was gone.
While both variants took approximately 45 minutes to fully set in, their effect profiles were completely different. The CBG Pear gummies initially instilled a sense of calm and tranquility that alleviated anxieties before transitioning into a surge of energy. The mental clarity coming in before the energy boost really “set the stage” for enhanced focus and productivity. Well suited for daytime use, I used these as both an accompaniment for my coffee in the morning and as a way to cut through an afternoon lull.
In contrast, the CBN Elderberry gummies were unsuited for daytime consumption. Wyld designed its CBN Elderberry gummies specifically as a sleep aid, and they indeed fulfill their intended purpose. These gummies induced powerful waves of pressure that relaxed my muscles and induced a heaviness in the body, accompanied by a hazy and clouded mindscape. This combined effect reliably induced sound and restful sleep, and I’ve started keeping these as a reliable tool for combating insomnia.
Overall, these gummies provided a strong push during the day, a solution for insomnia at night and left me excited about the future products that utilize these lesser known cannabinoids. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, visit here.
