Hemp Bombs CBD Gummies 75mg
We weren’t sure what to make of Hemp Bombs 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 product through its paces.
Taste (10 out of 10)
We rarely give out perfect 10s, but the max strength CBD gummies from Hemp Bombs 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.
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 gummies first thing in the morning on my way out the door. The main difference between these gummies and the CBD Froggies is the amount of CBD in the Hemp Bombs 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 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 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 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.
