What are Dad Grass Gummies?
At long last. Dad Grass you can really sink your teeth into! Dad Grass Gummies are just like the joints, flower and tinctures you’ve come to know and love. Low in THC. High in CBD, CBG or CBN (depending on the mood). They’re a smooth, perfectly balanced pop of chill that won’t leave you couch-locked or wondering if they'll ever kick in.
What are Dad Grass Gummies made from?
Dad Grass Gummies are made from the highest quality hemp emulsions out there. What’s an emulsion, you ask? It’s just a dispersed homogenous mixture of two or more liquids that don’t easily blend (think oil and water). Because we wanted silky smooth gummies, we leaned on our partners over at Vertosa to create a stable emulsion. The truth is, soft gummies need hard science. We partnered with Vertosa, a science-first emulsion provider, to ensure our edibles have faster onset time, greater efficacy and higher bioavailability. In layman's terms: we wanted our Gummies to be the best of the best, so we partnered with the smartest people in the biz.
Where do the emulsions in Dad Grass Gummies come from?
Vertosa uses nanotechnology to create smooth and fast-acting emulsions that allow you to get the widest spectrum of benefits from hemp gummies. An emulsion is just a dispersed homogenous mixture of two or more liquids, like oil and water, and we all know how well those two play together. Needless to say, Gummies are better when they’re backed by science. Vertosa’s nanotechnology is important because it’s what creates a stable emulsion (to ensure that you’re having the same experience every time).
Will Dad Grass Gummies give me the same feeling as Dad Grass Joints?
Although our CBD joints and CBD gummies share the same main ingredient, the experience and effects may be slightly different. When you smoke hemp flower, you’re likely to feel it more quickly. When you ingest hemp as an edible, the onset may be a bit more gradual and the effects more subtle as the hemp has to be digested in the gut versus the bloodstream. Either way, you’re still going to benefit from the plant’s full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that all work together to give you that mellow feeling that you’ve come to expect from Dad Grass’s high quality organic hemp gummies.
What are the benefits of using Dad Grass Gummies?
People tend to be as complicated as the Endocannabinoid system (Into science? Read more about the EC here!). So everyone tends to react a little bit differently to our products. But after doing plenty of R&D (if you know what we mean) we’ve got a pretty good sense of what most people can expect from Dad Grass Gummies with CBD, CBG or CBN.
Whether you use them once in a while, or as a daily ritual, you’re likely to find that Dad Grass Gummies help reduce anxiety, stress, pain and inflammation while improving your mood and overall sense of wellbeing.
What’s the best way to use Dad Grass Gummies?
One Bite Wonders: Remember, “bioavailability” is the name of the game when it comes to cannabinoids (like CBD, CBG and CBN). That’s why we partnered with the best in the business, Vertosa nano-emulsions. They make emulsions that are smooth and fast-acting, so you to get the widest spectrum of benefits from hemp. The best way to experience the full benefits of a Dad Grass Gummies is to pop them while you’re hydrated and well-fed. When you ingest cannabis as an edible or gummy, the active compounds in hemp and/or marijuana must travel through the body’s digestive system to then be metabolized and released in the bloodstream. That means that the full effects of the plant take longer to kick-in. When ingested, edibles like gummies can have a bioavailability between 4 - 20% due to the metabolizing process in the digestive tract. A big reason why edibles sometimes get a bad reputation of being too intense has less to do with the dose and more to do with the patience of the user.
Low And Slow: We recommend first timers start out low and slow with one half to one full gummy. Just remember, you can always pop a second gummy with CBD, CBG or CBN in a half hour if you want to enjoy deeper levels of chill.
Your Daily Dose: You know when dad used to say that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away?” Ya, we’re pretty sure he was talking about Grass. Not only can you take cannabinoids like CBD, CBG and CBN every day, but word on the street is that you should. We already know that you can’t overdose on hemp derived cannabinoids, and because CBD, CBG and CBN are both fat-soluble compounds, they build up in the body over time. That means that when taken daily, the benefits of CBD, CBG and CBN build on themselves and are believed to add additional health benefits when taken consistently. Not only do the benefits of cannabinoids compound in your system, when you incorporate full spectrum hemp oil into your daily routine you also prime your endocannabinoid system, which in turn will allow your body to more effectively absorb the benefits of the additional cannabinoids you like to enjoy.
What are the benefits of Dad Grass Gummies?
People tend to be as complicated as the Endocannabinoid system (into science? Read more about the Endocannabinoid system here!). So everyone tends to react a little bit differently to our products. But after doing plenty of R&D (if you know what we mean) we’ve got a pretty good sense of what most people can expect from Dad Grass CBG, CBN and CBD Gummies.
When taken daily, our gummies help many people achieve and maintain a state of reliable chill, while keeping their minds sharp and focused for whatever comes their way. And whether they’re used once in a while or as a daily ritual, high quality full spectrum hemp gummies like ours have proven effective in reducing anxiety, stress, pain and inflammation. There’s also a growing body of scientific research that indicates they can help alleviate certain symptoms associated with chronic illnesses.
Reducing Anxiety and Stress: It bums us out that anxiety and depression are so common these days. But the good news is that CBD infused gummies have shown promise as a natural treatment for mental health disorders. This is because CBD has a natural ability to act positively on the brain’s receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates your mood. For more info on how CBD, from a joint or a gummies, can help you leave your anxieties behind you, read this. “What about CBG?” you ask? Well, according to one study, CBG is able to bind with receptors in your body’s Endocannabinoid system (ECS) that are believed to relieve anxiety more directly than THC and even CBD.
Relieving Pain: Cannabis plants have been used for for pain relief since as far back as 2900 B.C. Studies have shown that CBD may be the specific cannabinoid responsible for fighting chronic pain by positively interacting with your neurotransmitters, but early research has shown that CBG may be even more effective for pain relief.
Reducing Inflammation: We talk a lot about the Endocannabinoid system (yes, you’ve got one!). Well, recent studies suggest that CBD can play a role in reducing inflammation by stimulating the Endocannabinoid receptors found throughout your body. These receptors are involved in a variety of physiological processes like regulating inflammation; but also appetite, pain, mood, memory and beyond.
Antimicrobial Properties: Good news for germaphobes everywhere, a 2020 study found that CBG may have the ability to not only boost the immune system but actually fight off bacterial infections. Just remember, dropping into CBG doesn’t mean you can skip washing your hands.
Sleep Aid: Good sleep is hard to come by. According to Science Daily, 1-in-4 Americans develop insomnia each year. And for good reason. We’re dealing with once-in-a-generation events every other month. Even though insomnia and poor sleep are common enough, a night of tossing and turning just ain’t natural. Beyond waking up and feeling unproductive after a restless night’s sleep, the long-term effects of sleep deprivation can have severe adverse effects on the body. We’re talking memory loss, mood changes, weakened immune systems, high blood pressure and more. Yikes. We know that hemp products alone won’t drastically change your sleeping habits. But when integrated into a more mindful lifestyle (seriously, don’t bring your phone to bed), CBD and CBN have been proven to help promote natural slumber and ease the negative effects of sleep deprivation.
Alleviating Symptoms of Certain Chronic Illnesses:
- Cancer: It’s no secret that THC has been used by cancer-patients undergoing chemotherapy to bring on the munchies, but CBD and CBG have also been linked to helping with symptoms like nausea, vomiting and pain as well.
- Autoimmune Issues: Research reviews from 2020 and 2021 suggest that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, and that the magical cannabinoid may help to regulate immune responses.
- Heart Disease: Studies show that high blood pressure is linked to increased risks of heart related diseases like strokes, heart attacks and metabolic syndrome. Now there’s some promising data that suggests CBD can promote a more healthy heart and circulatory system by reducing high blood pressure.
How long will Dad Grass Gummies take to kick in?
When you take a bite of Dad Grass Gummies, you can expect to feel the mellow vibe of the hemp working its magic in about a half hour. Keep in mind that everyone is different and everyone’s bodies absorb cannabinoids at different rates, but you can generally expect to reach your peak at about 90 minutes. Make sure to stay hydrated!
Are Dad Grass Gummies legal?
You know it! Ever since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-derived CBD, CBG and CBN products like Dad Grass Gummies have been 100% legal on the federal level. And thanks to the cooperation of the good ol’ USPS, we can legally ship straight to your door in all 50 states. What’s the Farm Bill? Great question! Signed by President Obama, the original 2014 Farm Bill began a shift toward separating hemp from marijuana. Finally, cooler heads. The Farm Bill gave states and institutions of higher education the opportunity to create pilot programs to study the growth, cultivation and marketing of industrial hemp. The bill defined hemp according to its THC levels, not any botanical or other scientific destruction. It also required that THC concentration be less than 0.3% on a dry-weight basis. As a result of this legislation, 40 states created pilot programs to explore the untapped potential of this magical plant. Then, in 2018, a second Farm Bill finally divorced hemp and marijuana altogether, allowing licensed farmers to grow hemp as long as it does not contain more than 0.3% THC.
Will Dad Grass Gummies effect my sobriety?
Medical News Today states that “not only [are cannabinoids like CBD, CBG and CBN] not addictive, but it may even help treat drug addiction.” A 2015 study found that one of the benefits of consuming CBD is that it may actually help treat nicotine and cannabis addiction and mitigate side effects of detox like nausea, vomiting and pain to prevent possible relapse. In addition, CBD has been linked to easing the damage on the brain’s neurotransmitters caused by consistent alcohol or narcotic abuse and addiction. That being said, if you’re struggling with addiction, are working to become sober or are sober-curious, we highly recommend speaking to a licensed physician or a trusted source before consuming Dad Grass.

Will Dad Grass Gummies make me fail a drug test?
Not likely. Drug tests weren’t designed to detect non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD, CBG or CBN. However, even in our Gummies hemp is front and center, there’s always going to be trace amounts of THC (always less than .3%). So if your education or career would be negatively affected by a failed drug test, we recommend that you don’t consume our products (but we’ll always be around when you’re ready). Read our full blog on CBD and drug tests here.
Will Dad Grass Gummies expire?
As with anything au natural, our hemp oil gummies do have an expiration date. You can find out the expiration date by scanning the QR code on every bottle. In general though, our Dad Grass Gummies have a shelf life of about eighteen months.
What are edibles anyway?
The real question is: what aren’t edibles? If we’re being technical, edibles are food products that have been infused with hemp and/or marijuana and can include baked goods, candies, gummies, chocolates, lozenges and beverages. They can be homemade (typically infused with hemp or marijuana butter or oil that is then baked, cooked or spread directly onto food) or commercially prepared by brands or dispensaries. Even though a good toke is still the most popular (and efficient) way to feel all the benefits of the plant, eating edibles like some of the best CBD gummies on the market are quickly becoming a popular way to enjoy hemp and/or marijuana. That’s good. The bad news is that edibles have a reputation of being a little… intense. But with any flower product, we recommend thoroughly vetting brands and companies to ensure they’re transparent and testing their products using accredited third part vendors. That way you don’t have to worry about sketchy doses or sneaky THC percentages.
What does “bioavailability” mean and why does it matter when choosing gummies?
“Bioavailability” is the name of the game when it comes to hemp infused gummies. Bioavailability (bi·o·a·vail·a·bil·i·ty /ˌbīōˌəvāləˈbilədē/) is “the proportion of a drug or other substance which enters the circulation when introduced to to body and so is able to have an active effect.” Woof. Let’s break that down.
When it comes to CBD, CBG, CBN (or THC), bioavailability refers to the percentage of these beloved cannabinoids that are actually absorbed by the body. A lot of brands will claim that their products contain tons of cannabinoids. And a lot of people think that the more milligrams they consume, the better they’ll feel. But what really matters is how much actually makes it into your bloodstream. Unless your products are formulated to optimize for bioavailability, your tincture (or gummy, drink, etc) will fall short of delivering you the effects you expect because a good amount of the cannabinoids you’re expecting will end up going down the toilet.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of chemical signals and cellular receptors that are densely packed in our brains and bodies. Cannabinoid receptors in the brain regulate activity levels of most other neurotransmitters and help regulate functions such as hunger, temperature or alertness. Our bodies produce molecules called endocannabinoids to stimulate these receptors, which are structurally similar to cannabinoids.
