CBD Gummies – What, Why and Where to buy in Australia
CBD products are quickly gaining popularity among Australian medical patients. CBD is known to have an assortment of therapeutic benefits and relieve an array of medical conditions. Although most popular in oil form, edibles like gummies provide an alternative method of consuming CBD.
In this article, we will outline some background on CBD gummies, how they are made and how you can access them in Australia.
What is CBD
CBD (aka Cannabidiol) is one of the many chemical compounds called cannabinoids found in cannabis. Unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the main psychoactive component of cannabis, CBD does not make you high.
We have no doubt you have already heard of the many health benefits of CBD. From relieving symptoms like pain, inflammation, seizures & epilepsy, to helping with PTSD, depression, anxiety and more.
CBD oils are currently the most common CBD product in the Australian market. The oil is created by isolating and extracting the CBD from a high CBD strain, and then further processed by diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil.
Please check out our complete guide to CBD oil in Australia for a more in-depth article on CBD oils.
CBD gummies are precisely what they sound like – a CBD edible in a gummy candy form.
CBD gummies are generally more accessible and discrete delivery method compared to other forms of CBD. Smoking cannabis flower or using dry herb vaporizers are still somewhat controversial and sometimes known to have negative health impacts. Some patients may also dislike the taste of CBD oil or are unable to swallow capsules.
This is where CBD gummies shine – they are discrete enough to consume in public and are easily chewed and swallowed, just like a regular gummy.
How CBD gummies work
Once the CBD gummy is consumed, it is absorbed by our gastrointestinal system and works its way to our liver and through to our circulatory system. The CBD is then released and interacts with tiny receptors within our endocannabinoid system (ECS) – altering our mood and bodily functions.
As our digestive system works at a relatively slow pace, it usually takes around 30 – 60 minutes for the effects to kick in. However, edibles are also one of the longer lasting delivery methods, with effects generally lasting longer than when inhaling or taken sublingually (tinctures).
Will CBD gummies make you high?
CBD by itself is non-psychoactive and will not give you the high or intoxicating effects associated with marijuana. The main psychoactive compound found in cannabis is THC, which is another cannabinoid found in marijuana plants.
There are three types of CBD products on the market:
CBD isolate – contains only CBD without any other cannabinoids
Broad-spectrum CBD – contains CBD and other cannabinoids, but generally no THC
Full-spectrum CBD – contains all cannabinoids from the cannabis plant, including THC.
In general, CBD isolate and broad-spectrum gummies contains little to no THC, and will not make you high. Refer to the manufacturers labelling to determine whether the product is free of THC.
Health benefits of CBD gummies
CBD has recently gained mainstream popularity due to its alleged therapeutic properties and medical applications. Recent research has demonstrated huge potential into supporting a variety of conditions including:
As a side note, there may be some potential side-effects with using CBD products. We strongly encourage our readers to consult a GP or a specialist clinic prior to administering any CBD products.
How CBD gummies are made
CBD gummies are generally made using the classic gummies recipe – sugar, glucose syrup, flavouring, citric acid, gelatin and food colouring. The secret ingredient, of course, is the added CBD extract.
Extracting CBD from cannabis is a complex process, usually involving using some form of solvent to separate the active compounds from the raw plant. Below are a few different methods of CBD extraction:
Once the CBD is extracted, further processing is done to combine the CBD isolate and gummy formula into the final product.
As with other confectionery products, the ingredients used in CBD gummies may vary. Some offerings may contain additives such as preservatives and artificial ingredients.
Patients with allergies and vegan requirements may be able to find products more suited to their needs. Look for organic products made with real sugar and natural flavourings.
Are CBD gummies legal in Australia?
As of Feb 2021, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has allowed the sale of low dose CBD products over the counter. Unfortunately, companies wanting to supply low dose CBD products will require their product to be listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG). This process involves rigorous testing and clinical trials before they can be officially sold by pharmacies. Due to the long approval process and many other factors, we are still yet to see any CBD products available over the counter as of today.
For Australians wanting to CBD gummies, there is currently only one legal pathway.
Similar to other cannabis products, access to CBD products requires TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) approval.
The process usually involves a consultation with a medical practitioner to determine your eligibility based on your medical history and condition. If CBD product is deemed suitable by the doctor, they will apply for approval on your behalf through the TGA.
Once approved, the doctor will provide you with a valid prescription and outline the process to obtain the CBD product depending on your state.
Legalities aside however, many Australians have resorted to buying CBD gummies on the grey market since the medical pathway is not the most straight forward.
How to choose CBD gummy products
Since CBD gummies come in different shapes and forms, it is hard to tell whether you are purchasing the right product. Below are a few points to consider when selecting the right CBD gummy brand.
Organically grown Cannabis
As CBD is extracted from cannabis, the source of the raw plant can have a huge effect on the end product. In our opinion, organically source will contain less toxins, pesticides, and other residuals that may affect the quality of the end product, and will be better for the environment.
As mentioned earlier, organic ingredients would be ideal for patients which may be sensitive to artificial flavouring and colours.
There may also be soy-free, non-GMO, gluten-free and vegan options to suit different dietary requirements.
Most CBD gummy products will specify the amount of CBD per serving (E.g. 10mg CBD per gummy).
To get the best bang for your buck, work out the total serving size and CBD per mg vs the product price – but keeping into consideration the product quality as mentioned above.
Most reputable companies will have their product cannabinoid content lab tested by a third party. This ensures you are actually getting the CBD content that is advertised on the product.
It is best to avoid products which do not stipulate individual cannabinoid content or simply specifies “cannabis extracts” as the ingredients.
Access CBD gummies in Australia
A mentioned earlier in the article, the current only legal pathway is to access CBD products via a medical practitioner. However, many online retailers are offering products under the title of "Hemp oil" and "Hemp gummies" – many of which they claim contain CBD content.
The Grey Market
One such company is Premium Jane, who have built up a reputation in the US as a trusted provider of quality CBD isolate products. Their fully established Australian arm currently offer a range of "fully legal" hemp oil and gummy products. Based on their product lab-sheets from DBLabs, it seems most of them do contain low doses of CBD.
The jury is still out to whether these grey market products are as advertised, as they are not yet approved by the ARTG. It's also important to note that these range of products are purely sold as "Hemp" products and they do not claim to cure any medical conditions.
There are also many online distributors based in the US and Europe who offer international shipping of their CBD gummy products. Word of warning though – this is technically still illegal and we have heard from communities where their packages have been intercepted by Australian customs.

We also have an in-depth guide on how to access CBD & medical marijuana in Australia if you wish to learn about the patient and doctor approval process.
CBD products and cannabis patients are steadily increasing year on year – with more than 100 different CBD products available in Australia since the start of 2020.
However, there are still limited CBD gummy products available for patients in the current market. The only accessible methods might be through importation with the help of a medical practitioner, or through one of the licensed cannabis suppliers in Australia.
We can only hope as cannabis laws mature in Australia and catch up with the rest of the world, more CBD products will become available for Australian patients.

OUR CBD GUMMIES AT A GLANCE
Why Cannabinoid Gummies?
Cannabidiol fruit gummies are especially suitable for people who do not like taking CBD oil in the form of drops or capsules. These delicious sweets taste just like normal gummies, and are perfect for getting your daily dose on the go.
What are CBD Gummies
Our delicious CBD gummies are filled with concentrated cannabidiol (CBD) that has been extracted from naturally grown hemp. They offer a simple and convenient way for you to get your daily dose of CBD.
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is the second most abundant phytocannabinoid in hemp and is known to support the body in many different functions. However, unlike THC, CBD is neither intoxicating nor addictive, making it perfectly legal and safe for consumption.
CBD affects our bodies by interacting with the cannabinoid receptors in our endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS receives and transmits signals from cannabinoids, and these signals have an impact on many different physiological and psychological processes – most notably mood, appetite, sleep and pain.
Filled with 10mg-25mg concentrated CBD
A small gummy with a big effect – CBD in delicious gummy bear form.
Easy to take and dose
Our CBD Gummies are especially suitable for people who do not like the taste of CBD oil drops or taking CBD capsules.
Does not taste like hemp
Thanks to our filtering process, our CBD fruit gummies do not have the typical hemp flavour, and instead come with a fruity taste.
Ideal for on the go
The compact packaging of our CBD gummies is the perfect size for any bag, making it easy for you to carry them with you, wherever you go.
When does the effect occur?
The CBD contained in our gummies is mainly absorbed through the stomach’s gastric mucosa. The effect sets in somewhat later than with CBD oils, which are absorbed through the oral mucosa. For gummies, it takes around 1-2 hours for any effects to be noticed. These effects can last for approximately 4-8 hours.
What is the correct dosage of CBD gummies?
Take 1-3 gummies (10mg CBD per gummy) each day. For comparison, one gummy contains as many mg of CBD as 5 drops of 5% CBD oil. It is recommended to start with 1 gummy per day and increase the dosage gradually if necessary.
How do I take CBD gummies correctly?
Find the right dosage
Start with 1 gummy per day and increase the dosage slowly if no effects are felt. One gummy contains 10mg CBD.
Chew for a long time
Chew until the gummy has completely dissolved. This allows the CBD to be completely absorbed through the oral mucosa.
And last but not least: enjoy the fruity taste of our gummy bears!
What do CBD oil gummies cost?
In the table below, you can see the different gummy prices and dosages.
We offer our CBD oil gummies in 2 different strengths (10mg / 25mg CBD) and three different quantities (30/ 60/ 90). While the 10mg fruit gummies are ideal for CBD beginners, the 25mg gummies are more suitable for people who already have some experience with CBD products, want to take a smaller quantity of CBD gummies per day, or want to have the best price-performance per mg CBD.
Due to their increased strength, you simply have to consume fewer 25mg gummies per day.
FAQs – What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of over 100 active ingredients found in cannabis. It is the second most abundant phytocannabinoid in the hemp plant, and is known to support the body in many different functions.
CBD affects our bodies and minds by interacting with cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS receives and transmits signals from cannabinoids, and also produces some cannabinoids of its own, called endocannabinoids. These have an effect on many different physiological and psychological processes in our body – primarily mood, appetite, sleep and pain.
Our CBD gummies are a delicious and colourful way to get your daily dose of CBD. These treats offer the benefits of cannabidiol and the taste of delicious gummy bears all combined in one product.

Our promise of quality
All of Naturecan’s products are created using industry-leading technology, and undergo rigorous testing practices with third parties in order to ensure product quality, customer safety and supply chain transparency.
Our CBD oil is a broad-spectrum distillate, with non-detectable levels of THC and high bioavailability, making it the safest and purest oil on the market. It is derived exclusively from US-grown hemp plants, which means that we never use isolates or any man-made synthetic material, and only ever use natural, plant-based CBD.
Our oil is a broad-spectrum distillate extracted from hemp. It is produced in Oregon, on the west coast of the USA.
We have a partnership with IAH Oregon, the first licensed hemp grower and researcher in California. IAH Oregon has a proprietary methodology and technology that has been developed over years to ensure a rich blend of multiple phytochemicals (including cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes).
Our oil is not only market-leading in terms of quality – it is also the safest product on the market.
All our raw materials are tested and qualified for use before entering the extraction process, and all our end products then undergo rigorous independent testing to have their safety and potency guaranteed. This process consists of at least six stages, and includes tests for CBD potency, pesticides, heavy metals, microbial contamination and residual solvents.
The certificates of analysis for our products can be found on the respective product pages.
At Naturecan, we use the advanced Centrifugal Partition Chromatography (CPC) filtration process developed by RotaChrom to ensure that our US grown CBD is of the highest purity and therefore quality.
While conventional chromatography techniques, such as High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and Flash Chromatography, are useful for filtering smaller product quantities, they are more costly (due to the use of silica) and time-consuming (due to a more complex process) than CPC, and therefore cannot be scaled effectively for medical purposes. In addition, they use larger amounts of solvents, such as butane and ethanol, which can contaminate the extracted CBD distillate.
CPC therefore offers an effective and efficient solution for the production of broad-spectrum CBD oil with high bioavailability and non-detectable THC levels. It is also a greener and more sustainable chromatography solution that minimises environmental impact.
With Naturecan’s CBD products, you can be 100% confident in the high purity of the CBD oil and 100% sure that the oil has been grown and produced in the USA, the most technologically advanced cannabinoid-originating country in the world.
Certificates of Analysis for our CBD Naturecan products can be found under each product.
As an example, you can find the certificate of analysis for our 10% 10ml CBD oil here.
It shows that our oil has been tested by the independent laboratory Contract Testing Laboratories of America (CTLA) and gives the following results: No microorganisms, No heavy metals 1.005mg CBD, as well as 1.85mg CBDV and 6.087mg CBG.
Below 0.05% THC: method detection limit (MDL) for THC: 0.507mg (0.0507%) – Non-detectable (ND).
Full-spectrum CBD products contain a mixture of naturally-occurring plant extracts (such as terpenes and other cannabinoids) and up to 0.3% THC or more. While broad-spectrum CBD products also contain many plant compounds, they are either completely free from THC, or contain negligible (trace) amounts of it, i.e. less than 0.3%.
