Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
Upon opening the jar of Charlotte’s Web Hemp Extract-Infused Gummies for Recovery, these bright orange cubes give off an appetizingly sweet and herby scent. They smell slightly gingery, which is to be expected, as that’s the labeled flavor of the gummies.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
Charlotte’s Web flavors their gummies with natural fruit and vegetable juices, and sweeteners like tapioca syrup and beet sugar. They’re also equipped with ginger and turmeric, which are especially noticeable in the strong yet enjoyable aftertaste.
They’re not quite as sweet and fruity as most gummies at the store are, but they’re just as delicious – like a post-workout smoothie loaded with the healing properties of ginger and turmeric.
The consistency of these gummies is exactly what you would want a gummy to be – not too chewy, but not too soft. While it’s best to keep gummies out of the heat, they do withstand their shape and texture in the summer weather without melting or becoming sticky.
They also don’t stick to your teeth as some gummy candy tends to do, making them an enjoyable way to take CBD in public.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
Each serving (2 gummies) is equipped with 10 mg of phytocannabinoids, 53 mg of turmeric, and 25 mg of ginger. Phytocannabinoids are naturally occurring chemical compounds in the cannabis plant that are loaded with medicinal benefits, such as CBD, and there are over 80 individual phytocannabinoids detected in Charlotte’s Web hemp extract.
Turmeric has historically been used to support joint health (among many other health benefits,) and ginger is a natural supplement known for its ability to regulate the inflammatory response. Combine all of these together, and you’ve got yourself the perfect addition to a post-workout routine.
Within 45 minutes or so, effects are felt in the form of joint relief and exercise-induced inflammation. It may be a good idea to take them before an intense workout, or to take them during your cool-down routine so they get to work right as you need them.
The intensity of edibles will depend on several factors, mostly your metabolism, but two gummies is typically enough to make your workout feel rewarding rather than like suffering – there’s no need to “work through the pain” with these gummies around.
Best used for
As mentioned, the CBD, ginger, and turmeric all form a super team of natural anti-inflammatories. These gummies are best used as the name states: Recovery after a workout or any other physical movement that may cause sore joints and achy muscles. This is also a great daily supplement for anybody suffering from mild arthritis or other inflammatory diseases.
The gummies are discrete enough to throw in your gym bag and can even be taken at work – they’re made from hemp extract, meaning there’s not nearly enough THC, the phytocannabinoid associated with psychoactivity, to get you “high.”
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
The Charlotte’s Web Hemp Extract-Infused Gummies come in three varieties: Recovery, Calm, and Sleep – each with their own unique natural additives to promote different effects.
While Recovery gummies are great for minor inflammation and joint relief, Sleep gummies are great before bed, and Calm gummies help to ease everyday anxiety. You can mix and match all three for a total-body, day-long system of natural relief.
While it is impossible to overdose on CBD, everyone requires a different amount to reap all of the benefits it can offer. We suggest starting by taking one of each type of gummy every day – Calm in the morning, Recovery as needed or post-workout, and Sleep right before bed.
If you find that you need additional relief throughout the day (such as a day you know will be extra stressful at work), up the dosages as needed (take two of the Calm gummies).
Jars of Charlotte’s Web Gummies come with 60 pieces, each with 5 mg of phytocannabinoids, or about 300 mg of CBD in the whole jar. At $54.00 per jar, this breaks down to about $0.18 per mg of CBD, or about $0.92 per gummy.
Hemp Bombs CBD Gummies, for comparison, are priced at about $1.65 per gummy – though they contain a higher dose of CBD at 15 mg. However, these don’t come with the added turmeric and ginger, as Charlotte’s Web Recovery gummies do.
What you’re really paying for with Charlotte’s Web gummies is that specialized formula to help support your joints and help calm inflammation.
