Best CBD Gummies in 2020

In 2020, almost every company is claiming to have the best CBD Gummies out there, which makes it challenging to figure out which ones really are the best.

Like the majority of our consumers, we got tired of trying to figure out which gummies were reliable and safe. That’s why we decided to take matters into our own hands.

We considered over 2000 different products by some of the top CBD brands out there. Out of those products, we selected just over 650 of them to be put through our lab-testing phase.

 

Just 391 of the products passed our lab tests and were approved for our website. Among the remaining products were 17 high quality CBD gummies.

Which out of the remaining 17 CBD gummies are our top-rated and why? Continue reading below to find out.

Our top three CBD Gummies:

  3. Turmeric Spirulina CBD Gummies 300mg 60ct by CBDfx

What to Look for When Buying CBD Gummies

When looking for CBD gummies, there are certain things that are more important than others:

  • Lab tests
  • Ingredients (CBD Type, Carriers, and more)
  • Product Claims
  • CBD amount
  • Price

Lab Tests

The first thing to look for when purchasing CBD Gummies is lab tests. When a company decides to perform lab tests on their products it’s a sign that they value the health and safety of their consumers.

Each of the brands we carry had already performed their own set of lab tests, but we decided to do our own. For a product to be approved for our website, it had to pass 5 separate lab tests.

  • Heavy Metals
  • Microbial Impurities
  • Cannabinoids
  • Residual Pesticides
  • Residual Solvents

The first test is a heavy metal test. Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and cadmium are found naturally in the environment, certain foods, medicine, and water. Although they may be natural, being exposed to high amounts of heavy metals may lead to a wide range of unwanted side effects.

The purpose of this test is to ensure that the amount of heavy metals detected in a product fall below the limit that has been deemed safe for consumption.

The next test is a microbial impurities test. Exposure to microbial impurities such as salmonella, e. coli, aspergillus flavus, and more, lead to a wide range of unwanted side effects and illnesses. Because of the dangerous effects associated with microbial impurity exposure, none of the products that we carry contain any traces.

The cannabinoid quantity in a product is usually the first thing that people look for when purchasing CBD products. This test validates that the amount of CBD, THC, and more that a company has claimed is accurate.

The use of pesticides is a concern for many people. That’s why we always perform a pesticide test on our products. If our lab detects residual pesticide levels that are above the standard limit, the product doesn’t make it to our website.

Even though many companies choose to use a CO2 extraction method which removes the need for harsh solvents, there are still many companies that choose to use them. Solvents such as acetone, ethanol, ethyl ether, and more must all fall below the limit which has been deemed safe for consumption.

Ingredients

CBD extracts in depth

CBD is a type of phytocannabinoid that’s created through the decarboxylation process. CBD’s precursor, which is known as CBDA, needs to be exposed to heat over an extended period of time before it becomes CBD. This can happen one of two ways; naturally through warm weather exposure or through heat exposure in a growing facility.

Cannabinoids are found primarily in the flowers of hemp or marijuana plants. We’ve chosen to work solely with CBD products that have been made from hemp because they contain a maximum of 0.3% THC. With only trace amounts of THC this removes the possibility of experiencing a high effect.

Types of CBD extracts:

  1. Full Spectrum
  2. Broad Spectrum
  3. Isolate

Full spectrum extracts contain the widest range of cannabinoids out of all the extracts. Containing CBD, a maximum of 0.3% THC as well as a wide range of other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.

Broad spectrum CBD products contain little, to no THC whatsoever, while still containing a variety of other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBC, and more.

CBD Isolate extracts are the best choice for anyone that undergoes regular drug testing. Containing a 99% pure CBD extract with no THC and only trace amounts of other cannabinoids.

CBD Carriers

CBD extracts must always have a carrier ingredient in order to be properly absorbed. The most common carrier ingredients in CBD gummies are plant-based oils such as coconut, MCT oil, and hemp seed oil.

CBD Amount

It’s recommended to start at a lower dosage and work up from there. This will prevent unwanted side effects such as drowsiness.

Price

The last thing to consider when purchasing CBD gummies is the price. We’ve made sure that every single one of the products on our site is available for the best possible price, and our top 3 CBD gummies are no different.

Are they sprayed or infused?

A unique aspect of CBD gummies that will greatly affect the price point, is whether they have been sprayed or infused. This means that they have either been sprayed down with or rolled in CBD oil.

Although some feel that isn’t a difference between the two techniques, here at ShopCBD we believe that the best quality CBD gummies are infused with CBD. When a CBD gummy is infused with CBD it’s much more likely to be accurate in terms of its CBD serving size. Being infused with CBD may also help to prolong the shelf life of the gummies.

Now that we have all the info there is to know about CBD gummies let’s looks at our top three gummies a little bit more in depth.

Our top three CBD Gummies in-depth:

CBD Oil Gummies 30 count 750mg by cbdMD

These fruit flavored broad spectrum CBD gummies are at the top of our list for good reason. They contain the highest amount of CBD per bottle out of all the infused gummies that we carry. They also combine a long list of natural and organic ingredients which makes these gummies a great choice for those who love products with natural ingredients.

CBD Relief Toads 400mg by Green Roads

For those with an extremely sensitive stomach, these broad spectrum CBD gummies contain even less ingredients than those previously looked at by cbdMD. They’re infused with CBD and contain 10mg per gummy for a total of 400mg per bottle.

Turmeric Spirulina CBD Gummies 300mg 60ct by CBDfx

Last but not least, these fruit flavored broad spectrum gummies contain two very special plant extracts known as spirulina and turmeric. Both have been shown to help lower pain and inflammation and they may also help to modulate the immune system. Containing 5mg of CBD per gummy for a total of 300mg per bottle.

Key Takeaways:

When purchasing CBD gummies it’s important to always look for the following:

  1. Lab tests
  2. Ingredients (CBD Type, Carriers, and more)
  3. Product Claims
  4. CBD amount
  5. Price

Although not everyone agrees, we feel that it’s also important to know whether a product has been sprayed or infused.

We may have our favorite gummies, but it’s also important for consumers to figure out which CBD products are the right fit for their specific needs.
