Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
We were hit with a nostalgic aroma immediately after unsealing the package. They smell like the red sour straws everyone slurped juice through in middle school. The sweet and sour smell tingles in your nose and leaves your mouth watering.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
These gummy bears are coated in a sugary powder, and upon first taste are super sweet. As you chew, a tangy fruit flavor emerges, and then the wholesome flavor of the full spectrum hemp. Combined, the flavor is bold, but balanced, and definitely tolerable to any palate that enjoys tangy, sweet gummy candy.
These gummies are sort of dense compared to the pillowy texture of other gummy products. The consistency is comparable to a Swedish Fish, a bit on the chewier side. However, they aren’t hard to chew and after a moment they seem to melt away and go down easily. They don’t leave any residue on your teeth like some gummies seem to do.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
These gummy bears by CBDfx contain only 5 mg of CBD each, which makes it super easy to adjust the dose as needed. As experienced CBD users, we started with 3 gummies, but the dose could easily be cut in thirds for new users.
The effects did seem to take a while to take effect, around 2 hours, but there was no question to the quality of relief provided. Sore, tight neck muscles from the previous day’s workout were instantly loosened. The same aching neck, which had been the root cause of lost sleep the night before, didn’t begin to ache again for over 8 hours! Then, a single 5 mg gummy knocked out the pain all night and helped ensure a great night’s rest.
Best used for
These gummies contain 5 mg of full-spectrum CBD each, and could essentially be useful anywhere that CBD is useful. Because they take a while to kick in, they may not be best for acute or chronic conditions where immediate relief is needed. However, for regular CBD users, these gummies do the trick. There may be some added benefit to the slow-go, long-lasting effects of these gummies, however. Evidence shows that cannabidiol may be useful for treating several chronic conditions that often require consistent relief (as opposed to immediate-release dosing).
One study shows cannabidiol’s ability to improve anxiety and anxiety-related insomnia. More research shows that cannabidiol may be useful in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Research also suggests that CBD has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and the ability to manage pain compared to opiates, which is why many people swap out opioids for CBD supplements. All in all, these gummies contain the high-quality, full-spectrum CBD oil needed to reap the many benefits of cannabidiol, wherever it may be useful.
