Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
Truth be told, Charlotte’s Web Hemp Extract-Infused Calming Gummies don’t smell quite as fruity as you might want them too. They’re very herby and earthy smelling with a hint of tart fruitiness, but it’s also very assuring that you’re getting a natural product made from plants.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
Luckily, these gummies taste better than they smell. They’re labeled as being lemon lime flavored, which rings true once the citrusy sweet flavor is released from the gummy.
These gummies contain lemon balm as well as organic lemon juice, and the use other natural fruit and vegetable juices for color and flavoring. The gummies are also naturally sweetened with tapioca syrup and beet sugar. They make for a fun, delicious way to get your daily dose of CBD.
These hemp extract-infused gummies are both soft and chewy, and they don’t get stuck in your teeth like some gummy treats tend to do. We appreciate that they also lack a sugary coating, as we find it makes them easier to chew and swallow because they lack a sour taste.
These cube shaped gummies come in a childproof container – while they look and feel just like a normal gummy candy, parents can have peace of mind that their small children won’t be stealing their supplemental snack.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
Each serving (2 gummies) has 10 mg of phytocannabinoids, 75 mg of lemon balm, and 50 mg of L-theanine. Phytocannabinoids, such as cannabidiol (CBD), are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant which offer a wide range of medical benefits.
Lemon balm is believed to promote calmness and ease stress, and L-theanine is known to help with relaxation and focus. Combine these three ingredients together, and you’ve got yourself a delicious supplement that naturally promotes calmness and relaxation.
Taking two gummies, as suggested, is calming without being sedating, though users can take more or less depending on what works for you and your body. The amount of full-spectrum hemp extract that’s right for you will depend on several factors, including weight, sex, age, and other medications that are being taken.
Effects last about four to six hours, so it’s suggested to take a dose in the morning to slide into a stress-free afternoon. Feel free to take another dose as needed, but be aware that effects will come on after about 30 to 60 minutes – edibles depend on your metabolism, and are not as fast-working as a CBD tincture or vape tend to be.
Best used for
Because of the added lemon balm and L-theanine, these gummies are best used to help combat the stresses of day-to-day life. While they are not quite strong enough to replace an anti-anxiety medication, they can be a wonderful, natural addition to anybody suffering from routine tension.
They’re portable and discrete enough for easy on-the-go dosing, making them a preferred CBD product for travel or a stressful day at work without getting questioning looks from passerby or coworkers.
CBD is also a natural stress and anxiety reliever. At a relatively small dose per gummy (5 mg), they are easily incorporated into daily routines.
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
Charlotte’s Web Hemp Extract-Infused Gummies come in three varieties: Calm, Sleep, and Recovery. We suggest beginning a daily regimen using all three, and upping or lowering doses of each one as necessary. While Calm gummies offer relief from mild stress throughout the day, Sleep gummies with melatonin are great before bed, and Recovery gummies make a delicious post-workout supplement.
While it is impossible to overdose on CBD, it is important to see what works best for your body. If you expect a day to be more stressful than usual, feel free to up the dose of Calm gummies to three while skipping a Recovery gummy later in the day, for example. Find the balance that works for you and adjust as necessary.
Each jar contains 60 gummies, and every gummy has 5 mg of phytocannabinoids – totaling 300 mg of CBD more or less in every jar. At $54.99 per jar, you’re looking at about $0.18 per mg of CBD, or about $0.92 per gummy.
Compared with Hemp Bombs CBD Gummies, Charlotte’s Web gummies are a decent price when considering the additional effects lemon balm and L-theanine. While Hemp Bombs CBD Gummies are about $1.65 per gummy, they also contain 15 mg of CBD.
If you’re looking for a product to act specifically as a natural calming aid, Charlotte’s Web Gummies are a good purchase.
