Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
Tearing into this bag is incredibly similar to ripping open a bag of Trolli sour gummy worms, except that these SeaBeDee gummies are packaged in a sturdy zipper seal bag that keeps these chewy bears fresh for quite some time.
The smell, though, is nearly identical – sweet, tropical, and slightly tart. Just the initial aroma is enough to make your mouth water if you’re a fan of sour gummy candy.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
This SeaBeDee Sour Neon Gummy Bear offers an exciting burst of tangy sweet flavor immediately upon contact with the taste buds. It’s exactly what every candy lover wants in a great sour gummy treat – its soft and chewy, covered in deliciously sweet sugar crystals, complete with a slightly sour punch.
Most importantly, these gummy bears completely mask any flavor that CBD may leave behind, so they are perfect for those who don’t care for that hempy taste.
SeaBeDee managed to once again replicate every chewy candy lover’s dream with these palatable little bears. They are covered in sugar crystals that give them an interesting texture, but after the first bite you’ll discover your taste buds are eager for more. These bears are just chewy enough, but also melt away quickly and won’t stick to your teeth.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
We took these gummies several times (because they are so darn good!) for a few different ailments. As expected, it took a little bit before we were able to tell any difference, with the onset averaging around an hour. A dislocated SI joint causes one tester frequent pain, and she generally uses over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications to manage the discomfort.
Although these gummies did take longer to kick in than her usual ibuprofen, they relieved pain and inflammation beyond her expectations. In fact, one 10 milligram gummy relieved the shooting pains through her legs almost entirely and helped her regain balance and composure while walking. Plus, the effects lasted for about 8 hours, reportedly much longer than her usual pills. Although this was only her first experience with CBD, she said that it may be her new go-to in between chiropractic visits.
This delicious gummy was also used to replace a regular 10-milligram dose in hopes of managing anxiety. Without fail, these gummies delivered the same sense of calm and alertness achieved with our usual tincture of choice, although it probably took 90 minutes to feel the full effects.
What’s really worth mentioning, though, is the duration of effects. Even when used to combat social anxiety multiple days in a row, there was never a need to redose. In fact, we found that taking this gummy too late in the day actually made it difficult to go to sleep at night, so it was better to dose early and enjoy the sense of serenity for the rest of the day.
In an interesting spin on events, one tester decided to try these gummies in larger doses for sleep. He took 30mg of CBD two hours before bed, and actually found himself feeling tired after about 45 minutes. Since he generally can attempt to sleep for hours without success, he considered it a win. His only complaint was the amount of sugar (approximately 6 grams) taken just before bed, which may be a small price to pay for those who have struggled with sleep.
Best used for
These gummies may be appropriate for any symptoms that respond well to CBD, which also could be unique to each person. If you generally use CBD to combat a regular or recurring condition, these gummies may offer a flavorful spin on your regular products.
The long-lasting effects may make these gummies perfect for managing chronic or persistent conditions, which is why many people turn to similar edibles for managing conditions like arthritis, chronic pain, or social anxiety.
