Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
Opening this bottle of Comfort Leaf Comfort CBD Gummies (300mg) delivers a sudden rush of that sweet and tangy smell that many know and love. The smell, which is a tad more sour than sweet, instantly makes your mouth water in anticipation. Think of the smell of fresh squeezed lemonade on a hot day.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
These gummies taste like upgraded sour gummy worms. They feature the same sweet, powdery coating and sweet and tangy core as the corner store favorite. The bottle contains a range of assorted flavors, and nearly all of them mask the hempy flavor of the CBD entirely. Only the yellow gummy seemed to have any remnants of the hemp taste, but it was still pleasantly delicious among the tangy, citrusy flavor of the gummy itself. There’s no aftertaste, either so these gummies would be great for those who dislike the hempy taste of some CBD products.
Although they are much like gas station gummy worms by taste, the texture far outweighs any competition. These gummies offer a chewy texture that can be described as “pillowy” and “delicate.” The delicious treat nearly dissolves in your mouth, goes down smooth, and leaves you eager for another.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
These edible doses contain 10 mg of CBD each, and we started with only one gummy. Like most edible products, these were slow to kick in. After about 45 minutes, the supplement began to take effect, and it took a little over an hour for them to reach what seemed to be their “full intensity.” At first, the effects were mild, with a calming, almost euphoric effect that kicked in soon after. We noticed a prominent effect on stiff, swollen, sore muscles, which seemed to loosen soon after the effects peaked.
Upping the dose to two gummies had a similar onset, but offered a range of other effects. A 20-milligram dose of these delicious gummy bears provided relief from general anxiety all day long. Further, they seemed to have a positive, uplifting effect on overall mood. A two-gummy dose produced effects that lasted about 8 hours, which means there was no need to dose again throughout the day.
Best used for
These gummies don’t contain any targeted essential oils or other ingredients so they may be useful for managing any condition that responds to cannabidiol. According to research, the potential benefits are vast. Several studies have worked to identify the way CBD interacts with neuro-receptors to block signals of pain or reduce inflammation. Other research shows that Cannabidiol may house a range of potential benefits for neurological disorders, like managing the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease or working as an antiepileptic medication.
Many people choose gummies for treating pain, like neuropathic pain, because the effects of edible products are often longer-lived than other CBD consumption methods. Further research shows that regular CBD doses may be useful for managing anxiety, and a few studies even highlight prominent effects against PTSD and concurring symptoms. These gummies make for a quick dosing option with lengthy effects that may be useful for any person who benefits from CBD.
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
These gummies make it convenient to dose as needed throughout the day and delivered relief from many mild ailments. The delivery of edibles is kind of slow so they could be paired with a faster delivery method when quick relief is needed.
A product like Comfort Leaf’s Peppermint CBD Tincture Oil would take effect quickly to help manage sudden or severe symptoms. Taking it simultaneously with the Comfort Leaf gummies could not only provide immediate relief but ensure that relief is extended throughout the day. Alternatively, a topical or CBD Pain Cream may pair well with these gummies for managing mild to moderate pain, especially around the joints.
This bottle of gummies costs about $55 and contains 30 gummies with 10 mg of CBD in each, for a total of 300mg of CBD in the whole bottle. That rounds out to about $0.18 per milligram of CBD or $1.83 per 10mg dose. This price is comparable to, but a little higher than popular alternatives.
For instance, Nature’s Script Hemp Extract Gummies cost about $1.65 for a 15mg dose but come in a bottle of 60, which may be the reason for the lower price per unit. At this price, these Comfort Gummies offer fair value and top-notch quality that makes them useful and accessible for most CBD users.
There are multiple alternative products available that may provide the same convenient dosing experience as well as similar effects. When comparing this product to similar products, like Canna Comforts Full Spectrum Gummies, these gummy-bears have one thing on their side: they fully mask the flavor of the hemp. The soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture combined with the fruity, tart flavor helps this product surpass most gummy products we’ve tried. Plus, these gummies meet our CBD Buyer’s Guide criteria for quality, purity, and potency.
As far as effects go, the doses are low and may work well for anyone who benefits from 10-20 mg doses of cannabidiol. A stronger CBD gummy may be necessary for people who need larger doses, but otherwise, these gummies totally hold their own against the competition.
