Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
Upon opening the package of Pure Relief Pure Hemp Cannabidiol Gummies, we smelled an interesting combination of a variety of fruits(orange, strawberry, and lemon predominantly) and the peppery, herbal scent of hemp terpenes. It’s an interesting combination that made a few of our testers sneeze, but it isn’t necessarily unpleasant unless you aren’t a fan of the scent of cannabis.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
The package comes with different flavors of gummy bears: lemon, orange, strawberry, and raspberry. The strawberry gummies were probably our favorites; they tasted bright and fruity, and the flavors worked well with the herbal, slightly astringent notes lent by the terpenes.
The lemon flavor was another memorable one, reminding us of a cross between a Lemon Head and the herbal flavor of a natural cough drop. Zesty without being bitter, the flavor strikes a pleasing balance between tart and sweet. The orange flavor is reminiscent of the candied orange slices in confectionery jars, but with that familiar astringent, subtly bitter aftertaste.
The raspberry flavor is the most brightly colored, but surprisingly had the mildest flavor. These were the most terpene-flavored of the bunch and, while we didn’t dislike them, they didn’t impress us as much as the other three flavors in the package. Fortunately, the assortment of flavors keeps you from getting stuck with a flavor you dislike.
