While all the products we selected meet our exacting standards of quality, other factors are more subjective. When it comes to selecting the best CBD gummies for your needs, here are some other factors to consider:
- Full-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate? Many CBD gummies are made with CBD isolate, which means it contains just cannabidiol, without additional cannabinoids. A few gummies are made with full-spectrum hemp extract, meaning trace amounts of THC and some other cannabinoids can be present, or broad-spectrum extract, which signifies the presence of other cannabinoids but no THC. If that seems confusing, we recommend experimenting to see what kind works best. Some people feel full spectrum offers additional benefits.
- Flavor? We’ve tried to describe the flavor of each product listed below. In general, gummies made with CBD isolate have less of a “hempy flavor” and taste more like traditional gummy candies. This may make isolates a better choice for anyone sensitive to this taste.
- Dosage? The dosage of the CBD gummies listed below varies from 5mg to 30mg per gummy. Everyone reacts differently to CBD, so we always recommend starting with a small dose and trying that for a while, even a few weeks, to see how you react. While it’s rare, CBD can have side effects.
- Ingredients? We’ve listed the complete ingredients of each CBD gummy product we reviewed. This will help you avoid any allergens or anything else you avoid. When in doubt about a potential food allergy or dietary restriction, we recommend reaching out to the brand directly via their Facebook page or other customer services.
We’ve also outlined any other factors that set these CBD brands apart, including their other products, the geographic origin of their hemp, and any special return policies.
