Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
Opening the jar, the contents smell fruity and sweet with a lightly tangy scent, similar to Sour Patch Kids or perhaps sour gummy worms. The scents of the individual flavors reflect the fruits they’re inspired by: the orange gummies smell citrusy and sweet, the lemon ones smell similarly to Lemon Heads, the blue gummies smell of blue raspberry, the green ones smell like apple, and the red ones smell of cherry, similar to cherry jello or those hard cherry candies.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
Each flavor of Nature’s Script Hemp Extract CBD Gummies is subtly different but retains the tart-sweet overall profile consistent across all the gummies. While the candies have a slight herbal flavor to them, it’s hardly detectable through the candy taste. The gummies taste much like how they smell—our personal favorites were the blue raspberry and the orange, but there wasn’t an unpleasant flavor in the bottle. That said, the cherry flavor, in particular, is kind of intense, so if you’re not a fan of artificial cherry flavor you may not be into those. Our bottle contained a pretty even assortment of flavors, so if there’s one you don’t care for you won’t be stuck with half a bottle of it. There’s no lingering aftertaste or weird medicinal flavor—these gummies could absolutely pass for regular candy.
On that note: it would be easy to mistake these for regular sour gummy bears if you didn’t know they contained CBD. Since they’re not in a child-resistant bottle, you should definitely keep them out of reach of any little ones—the gummies won’t hurt them or present an overdose risk, but you don’t want your kid consuming an entire bottle of any type of gummy bears in one sitting, CBD or otherwise!
These are pleasantly squishy, like factory-fresh sour gummies. Not too chewy and not too soft, they’re easy to eat and feel pleasantly similar to our favorite late-night gas station run gummies.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
We felt the effects within about an hour of taking these, and the effects lasted for about eight hours. Some of us needed a second dose in the afternoon, but some of our testers found that a single dose was enough to get them through the whole day.
We noticed a marked reduction in symptoms of anxiety and depression—our stress response was decreased, and we felt a general sense of ease and well-being. We also felt a decrease in chronic pain and inflammation—a tester with rheumatoid arthritis felt substantial relief from a single gummy and felt complete symptom relief after two. We also felt improvements in chronic muscle pain and tension, and the gummies reduced not only menstrual pain and cramping but the symptoms associated with PMS.
While most of us felt effects at a 15 mg dose, some of us tried more and felt stronger effects. If you need a stronger dose, these gummies are also available in 25 mg strength.
Best used for
We used The Nature’s Script Hemp Extract CBD Gummies to successfully manage chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and arthritis. As a systemic form of CBD, this product would be best suited as a preventive dose for long-lasting relief, since it takes about an hour to kick in. It’s good for long-term use, but it’s less effective for sudden onset of symptoms.
These gummies could be used to treat a variety of inflammatory diseases, from cardiovascular disease to epilepsy to cancer to Parkinson’s to dementia. They’re an especially good option for people who don’t care for pills and don’t like tinctures, and managing your dose is simple. Plus, they taste great—after all, who doesn’t like gummy bears?
