Hemp Bombs CBD Gummies Review
We weren’t sure what to make of Hemp Bombs CBD when we first decided to review their max strength CBD gummies. On one hand, their CBD gummies have received great reviews elsewhere on the web. On the other hand, the neon colors and bomb-forward branding is more aggressive than their peer group. Despite the branding giving us an initial pause, we decided to put the 15mg CBD gummies product through its paces.
Taste (10 out of 10)
We rarely give out perfect 10s, but the max strength Hemp Bombs CBD gummies are perfect on this front. The gummies taste exactly like sugar-coated gummy bears from the grocery store. With each gummy only being 15mg, you don’t get the slight hemp aftertaste that many CBD edibles have. Put simply – I was extremely impressed with the taste of this product and would happily buy them again. Only Seabedee Sour Neon Gummies and Green Roads Relax Bears come close.
Delivery (9.5 out of 10)
It really couldn’t be any more convenient to get a dose of CBD. Much like the Green Roads Froggies, I popped one of these CBD gummies first thing in the morning on my way out the door. The main difference between these gummies and the Froggies is the amount of CBD in the Hemp Bombs CBD version and the size – more on that in a minute. If you don’t mind starting off your day with something sweet, then this is a perfect on-the-go product from a delivery standpoint. The only reason we took off half a point is that each gummy is 15mg. So, if you need a higher dose, you may have to take a handful of gummies. Some people won’t mind, but others will.
Potency (6.0 out of 10)
At 15mg per gummy, the Hemp Bombs CBD gummies are more interesting from a dosing standpoint than a potency standpoint. Each gummy (5 to a bag) is 15mg of CBD, which means that the entire bag is 75mg. So, one gummy is not going to knock your socks off. If you need a smaller dose (15mg), then you’ll appreciate not having to eat ¼ of a larger gummy. (kind of gross for the next serving) But, most people will need more than one. On a serving size basis (1), the potency is very middle-of-the-road.
Effect (7.5 out of 10)
We approached rating the “effect” of this product in two different ways. First, we took one serving size (one gummy) and took notes. Then, we took our targeted dose (multiple Hemp Bombs gummies) and noted the effects. As mentioned, one gummy is not going to knock your socks off – even though they are labeled “max strength.” One of these CBD gummies is a beginner’s dose, in our opinion. With one gummy, there was no noticeable effect to a reviewer that takes CBD on a regular basis. A 15mg dose seems to operate in the background – providing a sense of calm in social situations, but nothing that you’ll consciously feel.
When we took our target dose (multiple gummies), the product delivered. With a higher dose, you’re going to get the body feel that only edibles provide. Generally speaking, that means less of a head effect and a sense of relaxation concentrated in the muscles throughout your arms, legs, and torso. They’re a little bit more delayed than an oil and certainly more delayed than a vape. But, at our target dose, this product delivered exactly the effect we were looking for. The only downfall of having to take four Hemp Bombs CBD gummies at once is the price.
Price (6.0 out of 10)
The price is the main downside of this product. We commend Hemp Bombs CBD for putting CBD into such a delicious, easy-to-take product. That said, at $14.99 for the sample bag, that’s $3 per gummy. If you’re like me and are going to take down 3-4 a day to get to your target dose, that can turn into an incredibly expensive habit. Hemp Bombs does offer discounts as you increase volume. They offer a 60 pack of CBD gummies for $119. You can get the price-per-gummy down to $2 a pop with this approach. But, still a bit expensive at $.13 per-milligram of CBD. The taste and effect are worth the price, but probably as an occasional treat, rather than a daily habit.
Hemp Bombs Review
If you know anything about Hemp Bombs, it’s about their vape juices. Hemp Bombs is a wonderful CBD company that’s been around for a while but is continuing to grow in popularity year after year.
This brand places extreme importance on their product’s ingredients and quality, which is something I always look for in a CBD brand. There’s nothing more frustrating than a vague company that feels like it’s hiding something. Hemp Bombs, however, has every piece of information you could need right there on their homepage.
Hemp Bomb’s huge line of products is more than worth checking out. From vape juices to tinctures to gummies and topicals, you can find literally anything you’d want on their website.
Their products taste well, come in varying strengths, and are more efficacious than I imagined. Using CBD isolate, I always get a little concerned that the product won’t be as effective for me. Maybe I’m just cynical, or maybe I was turned off by the slightly cheap packaging, but Hemp Bombs, as a whole, ended up impressing me a bit more than most brands do.
Hemp Bomb’s products come in vibrant, explosive packaging that’s hard to miss. (Trust us, you’ll know a Hemp Bomb product when you see one.) On the nose, these CBD products taste better than most, with bright, distinct flavors that hide the hemp almost entirely. All of their products are THC-free, which is ideal for those looking to experience inner support, like reduced stress and more balanced moods, without any psychoactive effects. Unfortunately, their use of CBD isolate makes some products not as effective with pain relief and decompression as others.
