Our Favourite Full-Spectrum CBD Gummies, From Taste To Results

Let’s face it, CBD comes to many form factors in waaaaay. You have your groceries, drinkables, tinctures, balms, bath bombs, oils, smokeables … really, if there is a way to get CBD into our bodies, someone has thought of it, packaged it and sold it to those who are looking for it many of the purported medicinal benefits of CBD. If the various form factors weren’t enough, we also have different types of CBD, from isolates that contain only CBD, to broad spectrum CBD, to the current gold standard: full spectrum CBD – which of course contains all the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, including THC (but usually not enough to get you high) to create what is known as the “entourage effect”.

We could spend an entire article delving into the entourage effect, but we’re not going to get you out of it here. In its simplest sense, it is the idea that the various chemical compounds in cannabis work synergistically to produce unique benefits that they could not otherwise achieve if isolated from one another. Basically, it’s like you want to take a B vitamin complex supplement instead of a single specific B vitamin. The connections work better together.

Even if you narrow your search to full-spectrum CBD, there are plenty of products out there. Instead of listing a grab bag of some of our favorite products, we went for a more curated and detailed approach. In our exploration of the best full-spectrum CBD products currently on the market, we come across gums first and keep them at a narrow level of three and a specific use that we like each one for.

For Aroma – Leaf Remedys Mixed Flavor Gummies

Leaf Remedys

Average selling price $ 49.99

CBD: 50 mg full spectrum CBD

Why we love it

Full spectrum products have a tendency to have a very medicinal and herbal taste, which is why you can often find products made with CBD isolate that top the articles and message board threads entitled “Best Tasting CBD Gummies,” while full spectrum products end up in the middle inside. That’s not the case with Leaf Remedys’ sugar-coated gums, which are made in a blended-flavored blend of blue raspberries, strawberries, and limes from full-spectrum oil made from organically grown Colorado hemp.

This stuff may look like a tamer, more mature take on sour patch candy, but the taste is sweet, not sour, and has a very slight – almost imperceptible – moist aftertaste. The slight touch of the weed taste is surprising as each gummy bear contains a powerful dose of 50 mg of CBD. This is significantly higher than the other rubbers on this list. How it still tastes like candy is a mystery to us (scream for sugar and citric acid!).

Every taste is different, but they are all equally good and deserve their place in the glass. You don’t have to be picky about which rubber to get. This powerful dose of CBD is incredibly effective at melting away any lingering pain and discomfort you feel, and offers longer lasting relief than much of the competition out there.

You will just want to keep eating them for fun, but at some point you will be stoned that way. Remember, full spectrum is not kidding!

Conclusion and best application

If you want all of the benefits of a powerful full-spectrum CBD but hate that herbal, overly herbal taste, Leaf Remedys is for you.

For Feel – Corn Bread Hemp Full Spectrum CBD Gummies

Grain bread

Average price: $ 39.99

CBD: 10 mg full spectrum CBD per gum

Why we love it:

The new organic berry gums from Kentucky-based hemp brand Cornbread are perfect for someone who wants to take advantage of all of the stress-, anxiety-relieving, anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD with absolutely none of the high levels, but still wants to feel something. Cornbreads gummies are made from Kentucky hemp, which is high in minor cannabinoids and only contains 0.3% THC. This is powerful enough to create the entourage effect that full spectrum products promise, but not powerful enough to get you high. And yet … our team couldn’t help but notice how great we felt with a single gummy bear.

Instead of wondering if you are actually getting the benefits of CBD or just lost $ 40 on a really expensive berry-flavored snack, you will actually feel like this product is making a difference. It’s a bit difficult to articulate, but within an hour you’ll find that little things that would normally put you on a wall – like people walking too slowly down the grocery aisle – just don’t bother you in the same way. Stress and anxiety just don’t matter when you’re operating through the pleasant, slightly calming buzz this stuff offers.

We want to repeat again: this won’t get you high (don’t worry), but you will feel all the good-natured euphoric vibes of being high without the paranoia, slow reaction time, and weighed down feelings that you’ve come across with really stoned to be. Body like jelly, but mind can still operate – that’s a win.

As I worked my way through my jar of Cornbread CBD gummies, on days when I started chewing a gummy bear, I noticed an increased sense of wellbeing and relaxation – no matter how intense the normal stress in life got. These berry flavored gums taste so … sweet, biologically gummy … that we almost thought about naming them “Best Flavor”, but good taste doesn’t really scratch the surface of what makes this particular CBD gum so good.

But we’ll say that – these rubbers are sweaty. This will help make them seem more potent and medicinal for sure, but you’ll make your fingers sticky. Don’t let them melt in the car either. I have a feeling they could liquefy quickly.

Conclusion and best application

Delicious and effective enough to feel like a single gummy bear. We are going to suggest this product as a daily CBD supplement to start your day. Take it with other vitamins and supplements that you take on a daily basis.

For Sleep – Charlotte’s Web CBD Gummies: Sleep

Charlotte’s Web

average price $ 29.99 (30 count)

CBD: 10 mg full spectrum CBD per gummy bear.

Why we love it

While all of the brands on this list are great sleep aids, especially if stress and anxiety are keeping you on your toes, none is stronger than Charlotte’s Web Sleep CBD Gummies. This is due to the absorption of melatonin, which gives you an extra boost in drowsy feelings of wellbeing.

Each Charlotte’s Web gum consists of 10 mg of full-spectrum CBD and 3 mg of melatonin. Without getting too scientific, CBD can affect sleep through the cannabinoid receptors CB-1 and CB-2, which promotes feelings of calm and relaxation, while melatonin affects sleep by regulating our circadian rhythms, which means two chemical reactions act to help you sleep better.

This makes CBD and melatonin a great and effective combination for sleep. When I spoke in person, I found that the rubber sleepers resulted in a deeper sleep, leaving me feeling rested and energetic the next morning.

Full Disclosure: While Charlotte’s Web is one of the oldest and most respected brands in the CBD community, it has undergone some historical scrutiny and received a warning letter from the FDA in 2017 about unproven health claims on their products. But the brand has strong and legitimate roots in the CBD community. It was launched by the Stanley Brothers, who developed a high-CBD strain of hemp in 2012 that made headlines after relieving symptoms of a young girl named Charlotte Figi who suffered from a rare disease and debilitating form of epilepsy which not only inspired the brand’s name, but started an entire industry of CBD products and helped loosen hemp laws across the country.

Our only big point of criticism with the product? Of the three, Charlotte’s web tastes the worst. It’s not terrible, but you’ll be happy chewing this raspberry-flavored gummy bear.

Conclusion and best application

Maybe it’s the melatonin, maybe it’s the CBD, but we’re pretty sure they both work together. If you’re looking for a CBD gummy bear that will effectively turn you off without getting you high, Charlotte’s Web Sleep is for you.
