If that sounds good to you, you’re not alone. Many CBD companies are currently capitalizing on the seemingly insatiable public appetite for these sweet morsels of CBD goodness.

The result is a fairly overwhelming number of options. But how can you possibly know which ones are as good as they say, and which ones should be given a pass?

Well, we’ve got your back. We evaluated dozens of CBD gummies, narrowing the field to the best products available. We sampled them, reviewed websites, looked at testing practices and customer service, and even had them lab tested ourselves.

The result? Our ranking of the ten best CBD gummies on the market. Read on for the goods on the goodies.

Table of Contents

We based our ranking on a wide-ranging analysis of both the product and the company that sells it. We scrutinized everything from potency and price to customer service and company transparency. All that information is laid out below.

And if you’re looking for more general information about CBD and CBD gummies, we’ve got that too! You’ll find sections that give you the scoop on CBD and its legal status, as well as particular information about CBD gummies.

That’s a lot to cover, so feel free to jump around, using the links below to locate what you’re most interested in:

Our Methodology

To find the best CBD gummies, we started with an exhaustive list of every CBD gummy manufacturer we could find. We then narrowed that number down to a mix of both new and more established companies, including those getting some buzz from consumers in online forums.

Once we had narrowed our list to a manageable number, we began the testing process.

Third-party Lab Testing

We sent samples of gummies to a third-party lab for cannabinoid potency analysis to make sure companies were labeling their products accurately.

Any company that had less than 20 percent of the labeled CBD was immediately excluded from the ranking.

Product Quality Evaluation

Of course, gummies should also taste good, so while the potency testing was taking place, our team performed blind product testing. Samples were placed in identical containers and labeled by number. We then took notes on taste and texture, noting anything that was either particularly wonderful or just not quite right.

(Yes, taste-testing CBD gummy bears is a tough job, but we took one for the team.)

We asked questions about hemp source and growing practices, as well as manufacturing practices. Specifically, we wanted to know if the gummy was coated or infused with CBD since an infused product has a longer shelf life.

User Experience

We also evaluated the customer experience. This involved going through websites with a fine-toothed comb, looking for accurate, helpful information (like third-party lab tests) and a frictionless shopping and purchasing process.

Customer Service

But we didn’t stop with websites. Our team also contacted companies’ customer service reps to get a sense of how long it takes to get a response, as well as how thorough and helpful the responses were.

Obviously, we take our CBD gummies very seriously. And we’re confident that our ranking includes some of the best you’ll find.

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of over a hundred cannabinoids (naturally occurring chemicals) that are found in cannabis plants. Cannabinoids work by interacting with receptors found throughout your body, in what is known as the endocannabinoid system.

The endocannabinoid system helps support a variety of functions within our bodies. Broadly speaking, its job is to maintain balance. Cannabinoids like CBD, which come from plants, closely resemble those our body creates, so they work easily within the system. This allows them to support endocannabinoid functions, like regulating mood, sleep, appetite, and pain.

So what does CBD do? We’re in the early stages of scientific research on CBD, but early results are promising. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of some of CBD’s most promising benefits:

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Helps control anxiety
  • Provides pain relief
  • Reduces seizures
  • Helps maintain wake/sleep cycles
  • Provides neuroprotection
  • Powerful antioxidant
  • May fight the spread of cancer cells

CBD can be vaped, eaten, taken topically, under your tongue, or pretty much any route you can imagine. But however you choose to take CBD, one thing doesn’t change – it won’t make you high.

And in terms of side effects, CBD has a good safety profile. Most researchers only report mild to moderate side effects, which might include drowsiness, dry mouth, decreased appetite, and lightheadedness.

Is CBD Legal?

The legal status of CBD in the United States has been in flux for the last several years, but the recent signing of the 2018 Farm Bill has provided some much-needed clarity for the industry and consumers.

The new legislation fully legalized industrial hemp and hemp-derived products (like CBD) and removed it from the DEA’s list of controlled substances. So, at the federal level, CBD extracted from hemp is entirely legal and no longer a controlled substance.

However, state laws vary and are sometimes unclear. The Farm Bill explicitly allows the transport of hemp across state lines, but it’s always a good idea to check up on what your local laws are.  For more specific info, check out our interactive map: Is CBD Legal in Your State?

How to Choose CBD Gummy Bears, Worms, Drops, or Stars

If you’ve ever done a web search for CBD gummy bears, worms, or drops, you’ll know that there’s a lot of variety out there. And we’re not just talking about what animal shape they come in.

Potencies can range from 5 to 25 mg of CBD per gummy up to 50 mg, which is a big difference! You can’t necessarily tell from the size of the gummy, so make sure to read the label or product page for that information.

Another thing to consider is whether the gummy is infused with CBD or coated with it. When CBD is mixed right into the gummy ingredients it has a higher chance of being evenly distributed (for more accurate dosing).

Infused gummies are also better protected from light and fluctuating temperatures. This helps the CBD to remain potent, rather than degrading while it sits in a warehouse. Websites may not offer that information, but a customer service rep should be able to tell you about their process.

Why Choose CBD Gummies?

It’s important to note that, despite their deliciousness, there is a downside to the CBD gummy. All CBD edibles have to pass through the digestive system, a process that will break down a lot of the CBD you have swallowed (and, ahem, bought) before it enters your bloodstream.

This means that, compared to taking CBD oil under your tongue, your body will absorb less of the CBD and take longer to feel the effects of it. The upside? Those benefits that you do experience will last longer than a faster acting method.

If you’re experiencing chronic pain or if you take CBD to help you sleep at night, a slower release may be what you’re looking for. But if you’re looking for something fast-acting and with higher bioavailability, you might want to look into CBD oils or vaping.

As with any CBD product, it’s important to make sure that companies have third-party tests to show what they’re putting into their products. Not all companies will have lab tests of the gummies themselves, but they should, at a minimum, have lab results for the CBD extract or isolate they use in their products.

    Koi only uses organically grown, domestically sourced hemp for their products, and they take extra care with their gummies. This means rolling and mixing the CBD into the mixture three times to ensure an even distribution of CBD.

    • Good value
    Disadvantages
    • Only one potency option

    Testing notes: Soft, pyramid-shaped gummies. Big, bright, fresh, terpene-forward flavor.

    Steve’s Goods uses full-spectrum CBD oil for their products, so they should contain traces of other beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes. And these gummies are also vegan and gluten-free.

    It’s worth noting that, if you’ve bought gummies from Steve’s Goods before, this is a new formulation for the company. While our third-party lab test didn’t detect THC in the sample we analyzed, this formula does contain trace amounts.


    Advantages
    • High level of transparency
    • Generous return policy
    • Responsive customer service
    Disadvantages
    • Website presents conflicting information
    • Shipping fees are a bit pricey

    Relive Everyday’s heart-shaped gummies are infused with CO2-extracted CBD, taken from organic, Colorado-grown hemp.

    These gummies are infused with broad-spectrum CBD oil, so they are THC-free, but include trace amounts of other cannabinoids. More specifically, our lab found detectable amounts of CBDV, a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that is similar to CBD.

    The company offers two choices of gummy potency and three flavor options, so you’ll be able to customize your own CBD confection. And fast, free shipping means that there are no hidden costs.


    Advantages
    • Free shipping

    User Experience- 97%
    Customer Service- 89%
    Reputation- 89%
    Transparency and Accuracy- 92%

    Ingredients: Organic evaporated cane juice, organic corn syrup, organic white grape juice concentrate, pectin sodium citrate, citric acid, ascorbic acid, Whole-Plant™ CBD, natural flavors, colors added (including anatto, tumeric, grape juice concentrate, red fruit juice concentrate).

    Testing notes: Natural, fruity flavor with a bit of a sticky chewing experience.


    Hemplucid sets a pretty high bar when it comes to transparency, and their cute little CBD gummy bears would pack a pretty decent CBD punch with the labelled 25mg per gummy. But our lab test showed significantly more CBD than labeled. The gummy we tested was actually coated with around 34mg of CBD, which could be a problem if accurate dosing is important to you.

    On the other hand, if you’re not happy with their product, Hemplucid has a generous return policy. And they use organically grown Colorado hemp, so you don’t have to worry about pesticides or other nasty chemicals.


    Advantages
    • Great customer service
    • Generous return policy
    • Vegan formulation
    Disadvantages
    • Coated rather than infused with CBD
    • CBD may be unevenly distributed
    Regular Price: $19.95 – $109.95

    Testing notes: Soft, chewy, sweet squares. Less tart than many other brands.


    cbdMD burst onto the CBD scene in 2017, offering great-tasting CBD products at surprisingly low prices. Their gummies, which now come in two potencies, are broad-spectrum, so there’s no THC to worry about. And yes, they taste good.

    The drawback to cbdMD’s products is that they don’t show third-party tests for finished products. On the other hand, they have a generous return policy, so the risk factor is minimal if their goods don’t deliver for you.


    Advantages
    • Vegan formulation
    • Gluten-free
    • Free shipping
    Disadvantages
    • No third-party testing of finished products

    Testing notes: Natural, fruity taste. Soft and a bit chewy.


    CBDistillery is one of the more established CBD companies out there, and they offer a bit of everything. Their gummies are pretty darn tasty, as well as potent. And if you’re using them to help support sleep, they offer a gummy that includes melatonin for some added sleepiness.

    CBDistillery is also one of the first CBD companies to obtain U.S. Hemp Authority certification, attesting to their commitment to a high level of transparency.


    Advantages
    • Great Value
    • Established Company

    Ingredients: Pure cane sugar, gelatin, citric acid, natural coloring, flavoring, coconut oil, and full spectrum nano-CBD

    Testing notes: Soft, chewy little gumdrops. Nice fruity flavor.


    Formulated to help battle that edgy, nervous feeling you get as you anticipate the beginning of another work-week, Sunday Scaries’ gummies are their signature product. The company uses domestic, organically-grown hemp for their CBD extract which is infused into each gummy.

    On the downside, Sunday Scaries only offer one, pretty mild concentration and no flavor options. However, if you’re willing to pay a bit more, the company does offer a vegan CBD gummy.


    Advantages
    • Free shipping
    • Generous return policy
    • Nano-CBD formulation may increase absorption
    Disadvantages
    • Pricier than most
    • Low potency

    Transparency and Accuracy- 95%
    89

    Ingredients: Organic tapioca syrup, organic cane sugar, purified water, organic seaweed extract, citric acid, trisodium citrate, natural colors and flavors

    Testing notes: Texture is a bit gritty while chewing. Flavor is fruity but also slightly dusty.


    Plus CBD’s gummies are vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO, and they’re infused with CBD to ensure accurate dosing. You can choose from two flavors (we tested the Citrus Punch), but there are no higher potency options.

    Infused with 5mg of CBD, Plus CBD’s gummies are the lowest potency gummy on our ranking. But if you really like to eat gummies, this could be to your advantage since you’ll probably want to eat more than one.


    Advantages
    • Extensive third-party lab testing
    • U.S. Hemp Authority certified
    • Vegan formulation
    Disadvantages
    • Expensive
    • Strict return policy
    • Lacking transparency around growing practices

    Ingredients: Sugar, glucose, water, gelatin, citric acid, natural fruit colors and flavors, broad-spectrum hemp oil

    Testing notes: Soft gumdrop covered in crystalline sugar. Pleasant citrus and berry flavors, which obscure any hempy bitterness.


    If you’re looking for a box of CBD confectionary that you can display on your coffee table, Lord Jones definitely fits the bill. These gumdrops are beautifully packaged, and with a soft texture and great flavor. You may not want to share them.

    The big downside to Lord Jones’ gummies is the price. They do not come cheap. However, if you’re either a teacher or a member of the U.S. Military, you can qualify for a 20% discount on any purchase.


    Advantages
    • Great flavor
    • Free shipping
    Disadvantages
    • No returns accepted on gummies
