Green Roads Edible: CBD Dark Chocolate Bar 15mg
Green Roads CBD believes in raising the industry quality bar and has drawn from its pharmacy heritage to ensure that its products meet the most stringent standards. The prevailing philosophy is reﬂective of its tireless commitment to helping people live healthier lives. This is done by combining what consumers need and the very best that science has to offer. The appeal of the Green Roads CBD 15mg per bar Dark Chocolate is undeniable – the packaging is luxurious. It definitely would not look out of place on a Whole Foods’ counter. There is a gold wrapper inside, highlighting that luxurious feel and look. It is almost as if you are opening a Willy Wonka Chocolate bar with a chance at a golden ticket.
Taste (10 out of 10)
When it comes to the taste, there is really nothing that would lead you to think it’s not a regular dark chocolate bar. There is no hint of any grassy hemp taste at all, either in the initial taste or the after taste. Our process of completing this Green Roads CBD review was truly a decadent experience. Usually, you get edibles that are not quite on par with the taste as they are with the CBD content. However, this is a great tasting chocolate bar. Come for the CBD, stay for the taste. It would be a great addition as a dessert in a CBD infused party or get together. The hardest part of this whole experience would be stopping yourself from having more.
Delivery (9.0 out of 10)
As an edible, nothing beats the convenience of getting to your CBD dosage quickly. All you need to do with this one is break off a piece of chocolate and enjoy. The taste is smooth, as we mentioned. We enjoy our Green Roads CBD oils, but they can’t compare with getting our CBD while satisfying our sweet tooth at the same time. As we said at the start, the hardest part about this CBD product is being able to stop eating it.
Potency (9.0 out of 10)
This CBD dark chocolate avoids the pitfalls of numerous edibles. For one, it is surprisingly quick acting for an edible. It could be due to the way the CBD was blended with the dark chocolate or any steps in the manufacturing process. However, we believe it is due to the fact that the Green Roads CBD chocolate sticks in your mouth a bit. This is pure speculation, but the way it melts in your mouth makes it feel like it is releasing CBD faster than any other edible would. Whatever the case is, this product can be said to be more potent than other edibles and that definitely gives it an advantage over other products on the market.
Effect (9.0 out of 10)
The effects are fast-acting but not so quick that you become overwhelmed by them. What you do, in fact, get is a slight chill which takes over the body. Think of it as a sort of cool down that a cold drink provides on a hot day. Your muscles are also not left out of the experience. Our tension faded away and relaxation set in as we wrote up this Green Roads CBD review. It is important to note that it doesn’t make you feel so relaxed that you become lethargic. This chocolate simply melts the tension away while still letting you get on with your day. All of this definitely makes it the number one edible that we have ever tried. It will be hard to top this effect, to be honest.
Price (8.0 out of 10)
The price is a little on the high side for Green Roads CBD, but you have to take into account that the dark chocolate is of the highest quality. Quality does not come cheap, especially for chocolate. You do pay $13.3 cents per milligram, which is a premium price, but in line with other quality edibles such as Seabedee’s Neon Gummies. The good news is that you can take advantage of our Green Roads coupon and use CBDTOP1010 to save 10%! Trust us, if you’re a fan of CBD edibles, you’re not going to want to pass on this one.

Green Roads CBD Gummies: Froggies 50mg OTG
Green Roads CBD has outdone themselves with the introduction of the 50 mg Froggies product. These CBD gummies are the best we’ve tried to-date. As you’ll see in the review below, the taste, delivery, potency, and body effect are on point. These Green Roads CBD gummies tick so many of the boxes we look for when reviewing CBD products that it was hard to knock the offering at all. The only drawback that we were able to find is the price. It’s a premium product and, as such, carries a premium price. While we don’t have the bankroll to take down a CBD Froggy every day, this will be a staple in our CBD repertoire for special occasions and on those days when we feel especially stressed out.
Taste (9.5 out of 10)
These Green Roads CBD gummies are nearly perfect when it comes to taste. It tastes just like most non-CBD gummies, complete with the sugar coating. The only reason it didn’t get a 10 is that the gummies does have the slightest hemp aftertaste. It’s very subtle and I struggled to even knock Green Roads CBD for it. As far as CBD goes, it’s going to be hard to mask the taste 100%. But, this is really close and I was just as impressed with this product as I was with Hemp Bombs. Overall, you’ll be incredibly happy with the taste of this product.
Delivery (10.0 out of 10)
Green Roads CBD really couldn’t have made it any more convenient to get this dose of CBD. I popped one of these CBD gummies first thing in the morning on my way out the door. Literally, you just open the bag, eat a gummy and you’re set for the day (at least for the potency I am looking for). If sweets in the morning aren’t what you’re looking for, you may not like snacking on a sugary gummy to start off the day. But, that’s a preference and, from where I’m sitting, this is the most convenient delivery of this dose of CBD that I’ve tried. We’re looking forward to doing more Green Roads CBD reviews on their line of edibles, as we feel they’re on the right track.
Potency (9.5 out of 10)
At 50mg a pop, the Green Roads CBD gummies – aka Froggies, given the their shape – pack a punch in a small package. Each Froggy (1 to a bag) is 50mg of CBD, which means that this is an on-the-go update to the previous 4 pack, which clocked in at 200mg. I have a little bit of an objection to the price(which I will talk about later), but you can’t argue with that CBD potency. In terms of what you get potency-wise for the ease and convenience of taking the product, you’ll be incredibly satisfied with this product. This is close to the most potent CBD products I’ve tried.
Effect (9 out of 10)
The CBD infused Froggies deliver on so many different aspects and the body effect that I experienced is no exception. Since the product is an edible, you’re going to get the body feel that edibles provide. The Green Roads CBD gummies are a little bit more delayed than an oil and certainly more delayed than a vape. But, the effect was exactly what I was looking for in a CBD product. At 50 mg a pop, these CBD gummies fall squarely in the range of what I’m looking for to make it through the day in an amazing mood. I shoot for 50-75 mg, which may be more than some people want. If you are looking for less, you can always eat a smaller portion of each gummy to regulate the amount of CBD. This will also help smooth out the only thing we’re going to knock the product for – the price. For me, the effect, combined with the other attributes will keep me coming back to this Green Roads CBD product as a weekly staple.
Price (6 out of 10)
The price is the only downside of this product. We get it – to pack this much CBD into a tasty and convenient product, it’s going to be a little pricey. Until some laws change, there may be no way not to knock companies for the price of their CBD. After publishing of this Green Roads CBD review, the company launched one packs (50mg) for on-the-go use. This is an effective price of $.13 per milligram. If you’re like me and are going to take down a frog per day, that can turn into an incredibly expensive habit. Of course, loading up on a higher-end oil isn’t going to be much different. Nonetheless, we feel the price is the only thing that will hold us back from using this Green Roads product on a daily basis. It’s expensive and it’s worth it, but probably to space out as an occasional treat.

Green Roads CBD Oil: 50mg Oil
We have had great experiences with our Green Roads CBD reviews in the past. We’re not the only ones with a high opinion, either – Cannabis Business Awards gave Green Roads CBD their “Best CBD Products” and “Most Innovative Product” awards in 2019. Considering these successes and our own approval in previous reviews, we were enthused to try the new Broad Spectrum Green Roads CBD oil. For those not familiar with all these terms, broad spectrum CBD oil is an oil containing CBD and other cannabinoids for the “entourage effect”, but containing no THC. We already knew about the strict quality standards at Green Roads CBD, but we confirmed there was zero THC by scanning the QR code on the bottle (this is a nice touch for consumers – QR code on both the box and bottle shows lab results). We were excited to give the 50mg CBD oil a shot!
Taste (8.5 out of 10)
The Original Green Roads CBD oil does not have any added flavors, which is a bonus for those of us trying to keep a natural regimen. It must be the terpenes, then, that give this CBD oil a pleasant, lemony taste overall. Limonene, possibly? In any case, it was reminiscent of Joy Organics Summer Lemon and we were impressed. This is a thick amber oil, and the lemon flavor hits the mouth in a satisfying burst. Our review team found it to be a strong but pleasing flavor, similar to a full-spectrum Green Roads CBD oil we reviewed last year. For those who aren’t fans of lemon, but still want to give this a shot, the broad spectrum oil is available in Apple Kiwi Bliss and Mint Breeze flavors.
Delivery (10 out of 10)
Finally a new delivery option for oils! Thank you Green Roads CBD! Regular readers will know that we have frequently complained about droppers, which is a common delivery method for CBD oils. Droppers rarely pull a full dropper, often lack measurement markings and drip. Finally, there is an alternative. Green Roads CBD now offers their oils with a plunger system, and we couldn’t be happier. The plunger is super easy to use and control your dosage measurement – eliminating the messy dripping that droppers can cause. Within a few seconds, we had dialed up our standard dose with no mess and no fuss. We love it, and we gave it a rare 10 out of 10.
Potency (9.0 out of 10)
At 1500 mg per bottle (50 mg per serving), this Green Roads CBD oil is in what we consider the high end of the commonly available oil concentrations. Yes, there are 2500 and 5000mg oils, but they are less common, in our view. 1500 will pack a punch, just as it did with the similarly potent HealthSmart oil. As soon as the oil hits the mouth, it has a feeling of being a potent, too. We generally review for the calming and anti-stress properties of CBD, but we suspect that those who use CBD for pain will find this oil delivers a powerful punch. For those who use a lower dosage, this oil is available in 25 mg and 10 mg strengths also. (See our How to Use CBD infographic to help you find the right dosage for you). So, Green Roads CBD is being incredibly thoughtful for a range of user needs and we appreciate that.
Effect (8.5 out of 10)
When a CBD oil gets a 9 out of 10 on potency, you can usually be sure that a high concentration formula is going to deliver on the effect. No surprise here – it did! The effect is not only apparent, but onsets quickly. For those of you seeking quick relief to whatever ails you, this Green Roads CBD Oil is going to be a good option. The 1 ml dose (50 mg) that we used brought us nearly immediate results, giving our reviewers a focused, calm feeling that kicked in quickly and stayed with us through the day. This is exactly what we hoped for when we received the bottle and this is an oil that delivers on the CBD promise.
Price (7.5 out of 10)
The cost per milligram of this Green Roads CBD oil is 10 cents, putting it in the high-middle end of the typical range we have seen. That compares well with other premium oils. Given the great delivery method and the high marks for potency and effect, we consider this a good value that will please anyone when used for their CBD regimen. You can bring the price down by 10% when you buy using our Green Roads coupon: CBDtop1010.

Green Roads Lion’s Mane Mushroom Capsules
In this review we stray off of our usual path of reviewing CBD products and take a look at the growing world of functional mushrooms. One might wonder what leads us to do such a thing. We have two good reasons: First, functional mushrooms are a supplement of growing interest with purported properties that overlap those of CBD, according to enthusiasts. Our interest was piqued. Second, we see companies that we hold in high regard entering the mushroom arena. With these reasons to convince us, we started our exploration with this Green Roads Lion’s Mane Capsule review.
Taste (10 out of 10)
These are capsules. No taste (duh). In such cases we assign a score of ten since there is no distracting taste. All users can enjoy the
benefits without any concern about whether or not they will enjoy a flavor.
We are curious about the taste if the product was not in a capsule, We know that several companies offer drinks infused with functional mushrooms, so we assume that there is no off-putting flavor to degrade the taste. As we watch the mushroom market, we might try some of those beverages and post reviews. (Author’s note: We did indeed try some mushroom-infused beverages at the Hemp Expo in Chicago and found them to be quite tasty).
Delivery (8.5 out of 10)
Unless you have a hard time swallowing pills, we find little to complain about with capsules. You get all of the benefits of the ingredients, precisely measured, with none of the taste that could potentially be a turn-off. While a great-tasting oil or gel is great for CBD, tasteless is often preferred for products that are swallowed. These flavorless Green Roads Lion’s Mane Capsules are sure to appeal to a wide audience.
The only possible drawback we see comes into play when a user might want a different dosage than the capsule contains. This doesn’t seem like a big problem, since Green Roads has undoubtedly set an optimal dosage already. (see Potency, next).
Potency (8.0 out of 10)
To be honest, we have little experience to guide us in evaluating the potency of this functional mushroom product. Lacking a solid base to work from, we looked around the internet to compare other brands and products.
Each recommended daily serving of two capsules contains 1000 mg of Lion’s Mane (2 capsules at 500 mg each), along with 400 mg of turmeric (contains antioxidants) and 20 mg of black pepper (for better absorption).
Other reputable functional mushroom products that we studied seem to agree with this recommended daily serving. We also checked a number of sites that discussed mushrooms without trying to sell you anything. There we saw a range from 500 to 3000 mg, with 1000 mg again being the daily dosage mast agreed upon.
Effect (8.0 out of 10)
Being new to mushrooms as a nootropic supplement, we had little to which we could compare its effects other than our considerable CBD experience. We made every effort to audit and recognize any new or different behaviors, feelings, focus, etc.
The first few days of usage registered little that we could honestly see as differences in our mood or behavior. As we got into the second week, we began to feel that we had a bit of a sharper edge. We already believe that CBD helps us in this way, but the Lion’s Mane capsules seemed to put a fine point on it.
Add that feeling to the health benefits attributed to functional mushrooms (blog post coming soon) and we see this as a potentially valuable tool in our health regimen. As time goes on and we continue our usage, we might have to raise this score. Stay tuned.
Price (9.0 out of 10)
At the time of this review, a 60 count bottle of Green Roads Lion’s Mane Capsules is priced at $24.99. That works out to 83 cents per daily serving. We searched a number of brands selling competing capsules, and this price fell pretty much in the middle of the pack.
We know from our research that some mushroom products are made with fillers that dilute the effectiveness of the product. Poor processing can also reduce the beneficial aspects. We have followed Green Roads for years and we have faith in the quality of its products. Because of that, we are confident that this is a quality product at a price that is more than fair.
A few Final Thoughts
As we made our way through the review process for this Green Roads Lion’s Mane Capsules, we learned quite a bit about functional mushrooms. We also recognized that there is a great deal more to learn, and that the time learning those things would be well spent by us (or you). We intend to continue learning even as we maintain our primary CBD focus.
Just as a teaser in advance of a blog post I intend to write, here is a partial list of some of the benefits that are claimed for Lion’s Mane mushrooms by Healthline.com and many others:
- Improve focus and clarity
- Improved mood and mental energy
- Could protect against dementia
- Relieve depression and anxiety
- Speed recovery from some injuries
- Protect against ulcers
- Reduces heart disease risk
- Helps manage diabetes symptoms
- May help fight cancer
- Reduces inflammation
- Boosts immune system

Green Roads CBD Oil: Daily Dose 25mg
We reviewed the Daily Dose Green Roads CBD oil over a year ago, so we were eager to see what had changed with the new version released recently. As it turns out, several noteworthy changes were well received by our review team and have brought up the score for this individually packaged oil. With that said, many of our “initial thoughts” remain the same as that earlier review: The Green Roads CBD website presents a different face to the CBD world, with helpful information and a unique assortment of products. Green Roads’ CBD product line includes edibles, topical creams, oils, capsules, pet products, coffee and Daily Doses, which we feature in this review. These Daily Dose products come in a soft pack with a tear-off top to make dosage delivery easy, and is available in broad spectrum as well as full spectrum. This oil is a single dose packaging of the 50 mg Green Roads CBD review we did here.
Taste (8.5 out of 10)
We were caught off guard by the thickness of the Daily Dose Green Roads CBD oil, but the taste was pleasant. We sampled the Mint Breeze flavor for this review. We found it to be a strong, pleasant mint taste, with just a slight hint of hemp that you expect from CBD products, similar to Charlotte’s Web Mint Chocolate oil. The Daily Dose is also offered in Apple Kiwi Bliss and Original flavors. We look forward to completing more Green Roads CBD reviews on those flavors soon.
Delivery (9.0 out of 10)
As mentioned, the Daily Dose products are packaged soft squeeze packs. The package is clearly marked with the CBD content (25 mg) for consistent dosing. A tear-off top allows the user to squeeze out the contents easily and completely. This new packaging that Green Roads opted for makes this a non-messy, easily carried or packed option, and we found it to be a significant improvement over the oral syringe used previously.
Potency (8.5 out of 10)
The amount of cannabidiol you receive from this Green Roads CBD oil is consistent in all flavor options at 25 milligrams. This is a common dosage for many users, so the 25 mg choice is a good one in our opinion. We tried the Daily Dose in both 25 and 50 mg amounts (2 packs for 50 mg, obviously) to see how the different dosages would hit us. Our goal was not pain relief, but calmness and relaxation, and we were not disappointed with either of these dosages.
Effect (8.5 out of 10)
The thickness of the oil in the Daily Dose made it easy to keep it under the tongue for an extended time, and perhaps this helped in the absorption of the CBD. In any case, it was not long before we knew that the CBD was living up to its promise. As stated above, we were going for the calmness and anxiety-free cannabidiol effects of CBD oils, and this Green Roads CBD oil delivered.
Price (8.0 out of 10)
Packaging small doses of CBD oil in a syringe is clearly going to cost more than packaging larger volumes. You get convenience, ease of use, and no-guess dosing with this product, but you pay a bit more for it. Surprisingly, the premium is not that much – a four pack of Green Roads CBD oil at $9.99 means you pay 10 cents per mg. If you buy the 12 pack the cost drops to 8.3 cents per milligram. Even better, with our exclusive Green Roads coupon you can save another 10% when you use code CBDTOP1010 with your purchase.

Green Roads CBD Oil: 550mg Formula
The Green Roads CBD website presents a different face to the CBD world, with helpful information and a unique assortment of products. Extensive informational articles, current 3rd party test results, and a charitable commitment to veterans gives us a positive feeling toward this company. The Green Roads product line includes edibles, topical creams, oils, and Daily Doses. Our past Green Roads CBD reviews have been exceedingly positive, so we were looking forward to giving the 550mg CBD oil from GRW a shot.
Taste (9.0 out of 10)
We were caught off guard by the thickness of this Green Roads CBD oil offering, but the taste was pleasant. The 550mg formula has a citrus taste, with the usual grass-like hint of hemp that you can expect from CBD products. The lemony citrus flavor overcame the hemp taste nicely, there was no strong aftertaste, and we consider this one of the better-tasting CBD oils we have tried.
Delivery (8.5 out of 10)
As with many CBD oils, the 550mg Green Roads CBD Oil comes in a 15 ml bottle with an eye dropper. Green Roads CBD does you the favor of spelling out the dosage in a full dropper (37mg), so you can easily gauge the amount you want for your own dosage, As always, we are not thrilled with the eye dropper method of delivery, but as an industry standard, we are used to it, and GRW is as easy as any other sub-lingual dropper out there.
Potency (7.5 out of 10)
We chose the 550 mg CBD formulation for this Green Roads CBD review, as it is in the middle range of available potencies and on par with a number of other oils we have reviewed. For our review, we took the entire 1 mL contents of the syringe, which delivers 37 mG of CBD. Our goal was not pain relief, but calmness and relaxation, and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed calm, focused days, and sound sleep throughout the review process.
Effect (8.5 out of 10)
The thickness of this oil made it easy to keep it under the tongue for an extended time, just like CBDistillery’s 500mg oil. Perhaps this helped in the absorption of the CBD. In any case, it was not long before we knew that the CBD was living up to its promise. As stated above, we were going for the calmness and anxiety-free cannabidiol effects of CBD oils, and this Green Roads CBD oil delivered.
Price (7.5 out of 10)
The cost per milligram of this CBD oil lands in the higher end of the typical range we have seen. Fear not, though, CBDtop10 readers can save 10% with our Green Roads coupon: CBDtop1010. Beyond absolute cost, we also look at the value. Across the board, team members contributing to this Green Roads CBD review noted this oil as pleasant tasting, effective, and clearly produced by a company focused on quality. These things convince us that Green Roads CBD oil delivers value in their products such and is worth a purchase consideration.
