Best and Most Tasty CBD Gummies of 2018 [Review]

Tasty and healthy at the same time

Remember when you used to run into your local candy store as a child, anxious to see what colorful gummies and candies there were on offer? It felt like walking into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. Well, that’s the look I get on my son’s face nowadays when we walk into any candy store.

The funny thing is, every so often I have the same look on my face when I receive my CBD gummies in the mail.

In this article, we are going to review the best CBD gummies of 2017-2018 and also explain what conditions they can help with. But before that, let’s take a trip down history lane.

Today, Gummies are enjoyed all over the world in different shapes, sizes, and flavors. What most of you probably don’t know is that gummies, (also known as gummy bears) were formally introduced to the world by Hans Riegel of Bonn, Germany, in the late 1960s. This was after he inherited the business from his father following world war II.

Since then, gummies of all different forms have been adopted and manufactured throughout the world. 2017 was the year of CBD edibles, and it was only a matter of time until gummies were introduced into the cannabis industry in the form of tasty, very therapeutic edibles..

What are CBD Gummies?

Similar to CBD oils, CBD gummies are edibles that are packed with CBD goodness. They are 100% all-natural, and do not contain any THC. This means that they can be shipped to nearly all 50 states.

So, where is the catch? Unlike pure CBD Marijuana, gummies are made from Hemp oil. This means that they are completely nonpsychoactive and will contain other important cannabis compounds such as CBD, CBG, CBN, terpenes and also selected vitamins such as D3, B12 and Vitamin D.

Now, it’s important to understand that extracting CBD from Hemp is a lot harder than extracting CBD from Cannabis. Since hemp is legal, it naturally contains fewer cannabinoids than regular cannabis does. As such, manufacturers have to process large volumes of it at a time in order to get sufficient amounts of CBD in the extract. While this is a tried and true process that can yield excellent results, it is also a potentially risky one if it’s not done right.

Some manufacturers, for example, pump harsh solvents like butane and hexane through massive volumes of raw hemp in order to extract the plant’s active compounds. While effective, this can lead to dangerous chemical residues being left over in the final product. For instance, it’s known that propylene glycol breaks down into formaldehyde and acetaldehyde over time, which are known carcinogens.

This is why it’s so important when choosing the best CBD gummies to only buy from quality, reputable manufacturers with transparent and proven extraction methods. Namely, what you want to look for are manufacturers that use CO2 extraction. CO2 extraction is a relatively complex (and VERY expensive) technique, but there are a few companies out there in the cannabis industry that have managed to master the process, compressing as much CBD as possible from the raw hemp material into a therapeutic, potent, and 100% safe product.

Also, when creating CBD gummies the most established brands use nanotechnology to further process the raw material, removing any impurities before they inject the “CBD goodness” of Hemp into the gummies and other edibles. Then, all products are laboratory tested to make sure that they are THC-free and do not contain any yeast, synthetic flavors or chemicals.

Are Gummies Considered CBD Edibles?

One thing that a lot of people seem to get confused about is the difference between CBD gummies and CBD edibles. To make things super clear for you, let’s put it this way: CBD gummies ARE edibles!

Basically, any kind of cannabis or CBD-infused product that you “eat,” would of course be classified as an “edible.” CBD oils are not classified as edibles because even though they are administered orally (by placing drops under the tongue and then swallowing), you are not technically “eating” it.

In any regard, a lot of people prefer edibles over oil tinctures (and other forms of CBD products like balms, sprays, ointments, etc) for a couple of different reasons. The main reason, of course, is that they actually taste good! While some companies have managed to kind of “nullify” the bitter taste of raw hemp in their oils, many products out there are downright nasty, and even difficult to swallow – let alone hold under your tongue for a minute and a half! For this reason alone, edibles are much preferred by thousands of day-to-day CBD consumers.

Also, most people say that gummies (and other forms of edibles) are much more faster-acting than sublingual (under the tongue) oils. This of course makes sense biologically, as the routes of digestion in each are completely different. When you eat a gummy or other edible, for instance, the CBD and other active compounds are absorbed straight into cells through the digestive system – quick, easy, and highly efficient.

With CBD oils, on the other hand, the compounds are absorbed through glands first, before eventually ending up in the bloodstream. While no less effective in terms of potency, it does typically take longer to notice the effects when using an oil tincture. As a general rule of thumb, it’s typically regarded that gummies/edibles are more potent and faster acting, while oils are much longer-lasting – many people, for example, get by with just a single morning dose.

What Conditions Can CBD Gummies Help?

It’s important to understand that CBD Gummies are not miracle pills and will not cure you of cancer or some other serious condition. So be realistic!

Also, please also be warned of ANY sites that are making such claims.

Generally speaking, CBD edibles, (and especially gummies) are aimed at helping various conditions such as pain, anxiety, and stress. Some patients claim that it helps soothe inflammation and relieves queasiness.

So why do people take CBD gummies? One of the major reasons is because the CBD levels within the gummies help people deal with anxiety, pain and decrease cognitive problems. CBD is now believed to influence pain pathways and help the body deal with any discomforts by affecting the bodies natural endocannabinoid system. Several studies have found that CBD shows promise as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, neuroprtectant, antidepressant, analgesic, and anti-psychotic.

Of course, though, another reason to try CBD gummies is that they are simply DELICIOUS. If we put the medical aspects aside and you decide to try one or two, you’ll understand what we are talking about. It’s a fun way to consume CBD while providing people with a healthy and balanced source of energy. And most importantly, it’s packed with health and wellness advantages without giving you the “high.”

  1. Joe R

    I must admit that I take these while at work. Excellent way to combat that afternoon fatigue.

  2. Linda Matychak

    Diamond CBD oil gummies are always having 50% off sales. I’ve been using their “chill plus” gummies and they work well for me.

  3. June K

    This is a great way to secretly take your CBD

  4. Barbara Friedman

    Is HIGHTECHCBD a legitimate company and is their extra strength formula Gummies effective?

    1. Adam

      Never heard of them!

      1. Aaron Grant

        I’ve tried all three on this list. They are all ok! Love popping these gummies throughout the day. Was a stress reliever

  5. Anne Walker

    Gummies look so beautiful, tiny and cute

    1. Trish

      Sure do!

  6. Laura Young

    I love these colourful gummies, they are perfect!

  7. Rodney R

    I prefer the oils but these are good as well

    1. Jonathan Riley

      Agreed!

      1. Brenda Camp

        Not sure why you all prefer the oils, these gummies are easy to eat and also I can pop a few throughout the day.

  8. Carol

    I would like to try the gummies to help me sleep when I wake up in the middle of the night and have to get up extremely early in the morning but by so many people saying it gives them a boost of energy I wonder if that might not be a good idea?

    1. Adam

      That is an excellent question. Generally speaking, there are quite a few different gummies. Similar to the oils, they are extracted for different purposes. Some will give an energy, some will not. Many are used for pain and anxiety. It really depends on your condition and what you are trying to achieve.

  9. Gaylene Boone

    Was reading the comments below. I think that if you get a good brand then the gummies are as effective as the oils. That’s my personal experience.

  10. Gens Wilson

    How much?

    1. Adam

      How much what?

      1. Gens

        Never mind, just got them. Great product!

        1. Adam

          Which ones did you get and what do you treat?

  11. Brad Swanson

    I haven’t found these to be as effective as the oils, but they do give a nice boost of energy. Especially during the afternoon.

    1. Jackson T

      I second that. Been taking them for over a month. Work well to lower my anxiety throughout the day.

  12. Cody T

    Love gummies. Going to stock up on 4:20

    1. Adam

      Way ahead of you!

  13. Barbara

    Do these affect prescription drugs? And is CBC legal in all states?

  14. Brian D

    I’ve been suffering from chronic pain for the last 3 years. I’m a regular CBD Oil consumer. I use the gummies for an extra boost. They are pretty effective.

    1. Barbara Z Perez

      I’m looking into them for my lil niece who is in a lot of pain from surgery on her club foot. The Drs are giving her oximorphone ( she’s 3) and it’s messing up her tummy soooooo bad. Soy question is do you think these gummies would help her pain and nausea?

  15. Molly M Turner

    I loooove CBD gummies!. They’re delicious (I have a hard time not eating the whole bottle at once), and its an easy and fun way to manage my stress and insomnia. I would definitely recommend them.

    1. Sarah Morrow

      Yes they are good, but they are not a replacement for the traditional oils. I find that they give me more of a energy boost throughout the day. I think it also depends on the condition you are trying to treat.

  16. Paul Spaziante

    The only thing that is incorrect in the article is saying that edibles are absorbed faster then sublingual (under the tongue). This is Incorrect as nothing is faster than sublingual delivery unless you are talking about intravenous. Sublingual is much faster because you bypass the liver and first pass metabolism breakdown.

  17. David Carpenter

    Delicious and therapeutic. What else can you ask for

  18. Suzanne Mason

    Excellent review. Informative and well written

  19. Stanley Reeder

    Great stuff. Ordered from GR and got it after a few days. Excellent product

  20. George Samson

    Gummies are awesome. Pop a few throughout the day and its the only energy boost you really need.

  21. Janice Reed

    Gummies are fantastic little treats. A little bit pricey but delicious stuff.

    1. Jonathan R

      Delicious is an understatement. I sneak 2-3 a day at work. Don’t tell the boss. Helps me deal with anxiety and gives me one heck of an energy boost

  22. Dana L Nagel & Susan L Nagel

    Do they really work for anxiety?

    1. Bianca B.

      Yes, they do work, but they’re not all created equal. I have been trying the Lord Jones CBD gummies for about a month, specifically to treat anxiety. They are extremely pricey, but boy do they work.

      1. Leah Tate

        That is true. I’ve been using PureKana gummies. What an amazing product.Highly recommend.

  23. David Lea

    So I got these gummies. They are good for anxiety and pain problems. They sure do give an energy boost. They will not cure debilitating conditions.

  24. Kate G

    I have purchased the gummies several times as well as the vape pen and drops. High quality products that really work. I would recommend these products to anyone.

  25. Amy D

    Helps a ton with pain and anxiety. Tastes good too!

    1. Dana L Nagel & Susan L Nagel

      I and my wife are retired and are having a lot of anxiety and depression.
      How well do the gummies really work? What is the best brand to try?
      Please reply

      1. Adam

        The drops are better for anxiety, but the gummies do work. Either of the first two are good

  26. Rick Sowder

    I’ve tried 2 different gummies and they didn’t work. The third worked like a charm. They are good for reducing stress and relaxing. Helps me get off to sleep

  27. Leslie Saxon

    Love these. I’ve had greenroads. They are tasty

  28. Sally R

    Love this stuff. It’s the best mid-day snack

  29. Harold C

    Excellent energy boost these little things.

  30. Thomas R

    I didn’t find these gummies to be as effective as the oils. They are quite tasty and give an energy boost but don’t expect them to cure any serious conditions.

  31. Josh H

    Recently bought CBD gummies and CBD coffee. I love them. Instead of my original wake-&-bake, now I wake-sip-&-chew

  32. Terry Lewis

    I’ve found that Green Roads work well, but Purekana taste great. It’s a hard choice each time 🙂

  33. Janelle

    Gummies are great. Tried all 3. I think the second were the best.

  34. Jonathan Walters

    These gummies are amazing. I pop a few throughout the day. Keeps me focused! Been taking the purekana ones latetly. They taste great. But I am sure all are good

  35. Ruth Ebling

    Gummies are sweet. Love how they taste and if you use them constantly they are quite effective

  36. ROBERT BLACK

    After a bout with kidney stones I have lost my ability to fall asleep, have taken many sleep meds prescribed by my doctor, wasn’t having to much success getting any sleep, my son brought home some gummies one night and said try this it can’t hurt , till this day I have tried many ,the best for making you drowsy and allowing you to fall asleep is made by HEMP BOMB , I highly recommend if you are one of the millions of people with sleep problems , take a 25mg gummie , wait 15 minutes and take two sleep aid tablets made by Publix and you will get a full 8 hrs sleep with no after affects.

  37. Sean B

    Weed gummies are great but will cost a lot of you buy them frequently. I just make my own

    1. Marie

      Is anyone on here taking gummies to help with the tremors from Parkinson’s?

  38. Ricky P

    I’ve tried the purekana gummies. They are not bad. Would get them again

    1. Suzanne Goff

      I tried them gonna keep using them till surgery

  39. Matthew S

    I ordered from from Diamond a few times. Impressive product and it tastes good.

  40. Sam Morrow

    I’ve tried a few gummies and he is what I have to say. They are good as a general boost of energy and they can help with mild conditions such as anxiety, but they will not cure tough conditions. Well worth it if you are looking for a fun snack that has some medical value.

  41. Jennifer Spencer

    Delicious stuff, love how they are making this stuff

  42. Peggy Hayes

    These gummies are awesome. I have also ordered froggies in the past. They are a really nice super charger.

  43. Ruben

    i just love these gummies. I have tried a few but GR are by far the best. Happy they made number 1

  44. Veronica Herndon

    These are a great Christmas present. Tnx

    There is a lot of talk about edibles and gummies. I can’t stand the oils so I take the edibles. Love them

  49. Gary

  50. Jack Duff

    Been taking the gummies for a few months. It’s a nice mid-day snack and give you energy.

  51. Hank F

    Got mine about a week ago. So they aren’t going to cure anything but they are brilliant for anxiety!

  52. Sharon

    These are excellent as a bonus. Would never give up on the real deal

  53. Barbara Ayotte

    Amazing. These are like candy. They are delicious!!!

  54. Erin Crowley

    I prefer the gummies to the oils. But that is just me.

  55. MissAK

    I’ve been going with the edibles from CBD DIAMOND they are pretty legit. I just pop 1 which does the trick but if I take 2 it makes me really relaxed. Have even tried the CBD shots and that think makes you feel like you’ve just took a muscle relaxer. Edibles the way to go if need for sleep or to relax.

    1. Meggie

      Thx for your input it’s helpful. May I ask when you say shots do mean like a b13 shot ( needle) or a shot like shot glass kind? And what? Explain please!! Then you one works but works for what? Pain? Anxiety? Etc…? All?

  56. Anna J

    Gummies are nice. I especially like the ones from green roads

  57. Anthony Dunn

    I take CBD oil in the morning. Pop a few gummies throughout the day and have a joint in the evening. The perfect combination.

  58. Tamara B

    I don’t think you can rely on gummies to cure anything, but it sure does give you a boost throughout the day!

  59. Luis Wilson

    I heard these were quite effective. Will let you know

  60. Ali Perry

    I take a few gummies through the day. It keeps my energy levels high. Which ones are best on the market?

  61. Kody K

  62. Peggy Clark

  63. Mary Davis

    I always thought that gummies were a joke until a friend bought me a packet. They are so tasty and they help my anxiety.

  64. Shanna Tyer

    I had to shift over to edibles as smoking didn’t work for me. I love these and wouldn’t go back

  65. William Taylor

    Do these work? I can’t smoke, so I am looking for something different

    These are excellent if you can’t tolerate the smoke.

  69. Debra H. Harris

    I saw these in my local dispensary a while back. They were extremely popular. Do they work for anxiety?

  70. Chloe S

    I used to smoke pot, quite a lot. But lately I’ve had to shift over only to CBD. I have to take random drug tests. These gummies are very effective. I take 1-2 a day and it hits the spot

  71. Ronda

    Which ones are the best. I bought some very expensive yet effective cbd oil for my child with behavioural issues.bit worked like magic. But, not he won’t drink his juice to get the CBD oil in him. I am a desperate mom needing help.
