Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
We were hit with a nostalgic aroma immediately after unsealing the package. They smell like the red sour straws everyone slurped juice through in middle school. The sweet and sour smell tingles in your nose and leaves your mouth watering.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
These gummy bears are coated in a sugary powder, and upon first taste are super sweet. As you chew, a tangy fruit flavor emerges, and then the wholesome flavor of the full spectrum hemp. Combined, the flavor is bold, but balanced, and definitely tolerable to any palate that enjoys tangy, sweet gummy candy.
These gummies are sort of dense compared to the pillowy texture of other gummy products. The consistency is comparable to a Swedish Fish, a bit on the chewier side. However, they aren’t hard to chew and after a moment they seem to melt away and go down easily. They don’t leave any residue on your teeth like some gummies seem to do.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
These gummy bears by CBDfx contain only 5 mg of CBD each, which makes it super easy to adjust the dose as needed. As experienced CBD users, we started with 3 gummies, but the dose could easily be cut in thirds for new users.
The effects did seem to take a while to take effect, around 2 hours, but there was no question to the quality of relief provided. Sore, tight neck muscles from the previous day’s workout were instantly loosened. The same aching neck, which had been the root cause of lost sleep the night before, didn’t begin to ache again for over 8 hours! Then, a single 5 mg gummy knocked out the pain all night and helped ensure a great night’s rest.
Best used for
These gummies contain 5 mg of full spectrum CBD each, and could essentially be useful anywehre that CBD is useful. Because they take a while to kick in, they may not be best for acute or chronic conditions where immediate relief is needed. However, for regular CBD users, these gummies do the trick. There may be some added benefit to the slow-go, long-lasting effects of these gummies, however. Evidence shows that cannabidiol may be useful for treating several chronic conditions that often require consistent relief (as opposed to immediate-release dosing).
One study shows cannabidiol’s ability to improve anxiety and anxiety-related insomnia. More research shows that cannabidiol may be useful in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Research also suggests that CBD has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and the ability to manage pain comparatively to opiates, which is why many people swap out opioids for CBD supplements. All in all, these gummies contain the high-quality, full spectrum CBD oil needed to reap the many benefits of cannabidiol, wherever it may be useful.
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
We used these gummies all on their own and got great results, but there are a few ways you could combine these products to potentially boost the effects, depending on your situation. The gummies do a lot to knock out pain, but they are slow to take effect. Combining them with CBDfx 500mg Tincture Oil may help you get relief quickly, and still experience extended effects from the gummy.
For something a little tastier, CBDfx also has deliciously flavored tinctures, like Blueberry Pineapple Lemon CBD Tincture Oil. Another winning combination is these CBD gummies and a powerful topical, like CBDfx’s CBD Cream, which can help target pain and provide immediate relief while the gummy has time to kick in.
This bottle of CBDfx Hemp Gummy Bears contains 60 gummies that have 5 milligrams of cannabidiol each. The bottle costs $60, which rounds out to $1 per 5-milligram dose, or $2 per 10-milligram dose. Compared to similar products this price point is a little high. For instance, Canna Comforts Full Spectrum CBD Gummies cost around $1.50 for a 10-milligram dose. Nature’s Script Hemp Extract Gummies cost $1.65 each for a 15-milligram dose.
That being said, these gummies by CBDfx definitely still fall in a fair price range for high-quality CBD products, and we think the relief provided was well worth the price.
There are several different alternatives available for full spectrum CBD gummies, but CBDfx provides quality that is unmatched by many brands. The gummies are both delicious and extremely effective but offer value in a different way. The bottle is loaded with 60 gummies at 5 milligrams each.
Many CBD gummy products contain higher-dosed gummies, which can make it difficult for people who need doses in between (like the 15 milligrams we needed for relief). Having 60 low dose gummies at your disposal is often more convenient than only 30 10-milligram pieces, especially for people who use CBD to manage inconsistent symptoms of conditions that flare.
You can access CBDfx’s existing lab reports to find both a potency and purity report on these delicious gummies. CBDfx meets all of our high standards and their products can standalone in the management of most ailments that respond to CBD. If you still have some reason to opt for an alternative, other brands offer fully tested CBD gummies, like Hemp Bombs CBD Gummies.
