I adore the chewy delight of a gummy candy, and I loved getting the chance to pick out the best CBD gummies.
I may be a bit biased, because I’ve always enjoyed gummies, from gummy bears to gummy worms, and they’re even better when you add the healing power of CBD. Obviously I’m not alone: store shelves are full of gummy adult vitamins and numerous other nutritional supplements in candy shapes. When it comes to CBD oil, the beneficial supplement made from industrial hemp, it’s no surprise there are lots of sweet, chewy CBD treats for sale now, too.
The appeal of CBD gummies is obvious: the flavors and texture make CBD easy to ingest, particularly if people have trouble swallowing pills or dislike the flavor of conventional tinctures. While all gummy supplements should be kept out of reach of children, some kids do take CBD, particularly for especially serious forms of epilepsy, so CBD gummies have an obvious appeal for those parents. It can also be easier to take a precise dose with edibles like gummies compared to a dropper of liquid CBD tincture.
It could be argued, and not without reason, that gummies represent empty calories and needless sugar added to our diets, but I know that I’ve taken my vitamins more consistently since I started buying gummies. It makes sense that other people would find CBD easier to take regularly if it comes as a candy, and for them the benefits may easily outweigh the caloric costs.
Unfortunately, when I started looking into CBD gummies, I found that very few products met our standards of quality. Because the CBD market is largely unregulated, it’s important to be very careful which products you choose. In the end, I found just four companies met the MInistry of Hemp’s high standards for CBD products: CBD Infusionz, CBD Living, Go Green Hemp, and Pure American Hemp Oil.

I’ll outline below what standards I used to judge these products, which combine both subjective standards (like how did it taste?) with objective ones (like quality and cost). Then I’ll tell you who made the best CBD gummies, and a little bit more about each brand.
A good bear is hard to find: The problem of poor quality CBD gummies
To research this article, I looked at all the CBD gummies I could find for sale online, and also looked in many of the shops local to me in Austin, Texas which sell CBD products. I was disappointed by how few shops appeared to offer good, quality products.
