Part of our goal at CBDtop10 is try and sort through the crowded CBD market to identify companies that stand out from the pack. HealthSmart is one of those companies, based on their approach. Typically, companies are either producing CBD products from full spectrum hemp with THC or they are depleting the terpenes and fatty acids, along with the THC, to create THC-free CBD oil from isolate. HealthSmart is unique in that, through their process, they claim to remove the THC while maintaining the beneficial components of a broad spectrum oil, namely, terpenes that are believed to contribute to the entourage effect. We were more than curious to test their CBD products based on their website and mission.
Taste (7.8 out of 10)
One of the benefits of creating CBD edibles from isolate is that you are able to eliminate all of the grassy, earthy tastes of hemp that need masking and create something that tastes like a store bought gummy. That said, you lose all of the benefits of full spectrum hemp, such as terpenes and fatty acids, when you do that. Since HealthSmart is maintaining the full spectrum, we can't fault them completely on taste. We started out trying the Grape flavor from HealthSmart and subsequently tried multiple flavors. We found the taste to be pretty pleasant. The Grape gummy was slightly more acidic than we expected, but still mild. The other berry flavor was less acidic, but did have some notes of hemp that weren't completely masked. The aftertaste lingered for a minute or two, but as we noted, the overall experience was well above average.
Delivery (8.0 out of 10)
Typically, edibles can knock it out of the park in terms of delivery. Unlike CBD oils, they are portable and easy to administer quickly on-the-go. HealthSmart's 25mg gummies hit on most of those points. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of gummies in a bottle and the gummy squares are easy to pop in your mouth. That said, we did find that these gummies stick together a bit, which meant we fumbled around trying to get the first few out of the bottle. Also, these gummies are slightly denser in the center than a gummy made from isolate, so they're a bit chewier than we anticipated. Neither of these things were dealbreakers for us, as we would rather take the 3-5 seconds to secure and chew these gummies if we get access to a broad spectrum hemp profile and effect.
Potency (9.0 out of 10)
At 25mg per gummy, a single gummy is going to deliver a nice dose of CBD. It’s not the absolute highest, as some edibles come in at 50mg per gummy. That said, 25mg per gummy is higher than most. No need to pop four or five gummies at a time. If you know your dosage is some multiple of 25mg, this is going to be the perfect size and potency for you. As with most edibles, the equivalent amount of CBD in an oil is probably going to be easier on your wallet. But, you can’t beat the convenience here with this potency.
Effect (8.0 out of 10)
Ahhh, the nice calming sensation we expect from a quality product. We found that, after taking our HealthSmart gummies, our mood mellowed and a relaxing calm set in. Our reviewer noted a sense of being content and clear headedness. These gummies delivered exactly what we anticipated they would - not so strong that they put us down for a nap, but strong enough to feel the effect.
Price (9.0 out of 10)
Most of the quality edibles we test come in at $.15 per milligram or higher. Price is typically the main downfall of edibles, as they tend to be more expensive than their CBD oil brethren. But, man, HealthSmart has knocked it out of the park on edible pricing. At $40 for twenty 25mg gummies, that means this product clocks in at $.08 per milligram. That is incredibly hard to beat. When you factor in that this product maintains the broad spectrum terpenes we believe are essential to a quality product, you can't go wrong with these HealthSmart gummies.
