Charlotte's Web CBD review
Advertisement for THCA flower

Charlotte’s Web may be the world’s most trusted hemp extract we’ve seen yet. This company places huge importance on the quality of their products, ensuring strict labeling instructions and even stricter marketing techniques. The history behind Charlotte’s Web is incredible in and of itself, but the success they’ve had with their products is no surprise once you’ve tried their goodies.

Compared to the competition, Charlotte’s Web’s CBD oils, topicals, gummies, and even pet products are miles above the rest. The packaging, for one, simply feels more luxurious than most. On the tongue (or under), these CBD products don’t produce overwhelming flavors; rather, they’re natural, subtle, and extremely easy to consume.

These products are absolutely ideal for helping to manage everyday stressors, and they all helped to support a sense of calm and focus that I desperately needed.

I will say, most of their products have quite low CBD doses, making them ideal for beginner consumers. However, even just 17mg might not be enough for newbies. For you experienced consumers out there, I’d suggest doubling your dose for best results.

Charlotte’s Web is a pioneer in the CBD game. Their products are beautifully packaged with clear, detailed information every consumer deserves to know. The company uses all-natural ingredients to bring out hemp flavors that I loved. Though, even the flavored products were subtle and delicious. Charlotte’s Web’s doses tend to be quite low, making the efficacy a bit mild--especially for the price. But, I can’t complain: their products still helped support a sense of calm that I hadn’t felt in a while.

With great flavors and potent support, you cannot go wrong with this powerful, minty oil.

Charlotte’s Web Max Strength CBD Oil

Charlotte's Web CBD oil review

For those with high tolerances looking to experience the beauty of Charlotte’s Web, this product is for you. At 1800mg total (60mg/serving), their Max Strength CBD Oil is the strongest one that they sell.

Charlotte’s Web’s full-spectrum CBD extract made it feel like one of the most potent tinctures I’ve tried in a while. The packaging was beautiful and the taste was a bright and citrusy Lemon Twist flavor that perfectly hid the taste of hemp. I will admit, the $120 price tag is a bit intimidating at first but it only comes out to $0.07 per serving which is very reasonable.

Product Summary

From the second I held this product, I could tell that this oil was high-quality. (And at $119.99, this one of the more expensive oils I’ve tried.) As soon as I opened it, I noticed vibrant whiffs of lemon that had me enticed right off the bat. I placed a few drops under my tongue and in under 30 minutes, I could feel my everyday stressors become more manageable.

  • Potent extract
  • Manages daily stressors

Charlotte’s Web CBD Gummies for Sleep

Charlotte's Web Sleep CBD gummies

Charlotte’s Web has combined CBD with melatonin to create a product designed to support healthy sleep cycles. This combination has always been one of my favorites, as it gets you decompressed and ready for a cozy night ahead.

The raspberry flavors in these gummies were all-natural and delicious to eat; though, at only 10mg each, I found myself eating a few in order to experience results. If these gummies were a bit more potent, I’d easily turn to them before bed any night. However, they’re slightly expensive for the low milligrams, so I’m not sure they’re worth it.

CBD gummies for sleep

Product Summary

The 60-count Sleep Gummies pack boasts Charlotte’s Web’s signature designed and high-quality look. They’re made with all-natural ingredients, alongside full-spectrum CBD and melatonin. Together, I felt they helped support a more regular sleep cycle, though they weren’t nearly as potent as I needed–especially for the price. After having three, though, I was set for the night.

Charlotte’s Web CBD Gummies for Calm

Charlotte's Web CBD Calm gummies

In our stress-induced world, Charlotte’s Web 30 ct. Calm CBD Gummies are a breath of fresh air. These high-quality, full-spectrum-extract-infused gummies are available in a bright lemon-lime flavor that tastes reminiscent of Sprite.

This tasty flavor made the gummies super easy to consume, especially because I needed a few to experience potent enough effects. For beginners, just one Calm gummy might work best, but at 10mg, anyone more experienced is going to need to chew on a few to experience that sense of calm you’re looking for.

CBD gummies for calming

Product Summary

These gummies look like most other CBD gummies on the market, only with Charlotte’s Web’s signature design. In the mouth, I loved the chewy texture and bright lemon-lime flavor: it wasn’t too overwhelming nor too subtle. Thank god I loved the flavor, as I had to eat a few of these mild gummies to feel any result. At 10mg, they’re just not potent enough for experienced consumers like me — just be sure to keep these sweet therapeutic treats in a nice, cool storage to avoid excessive stickiness.

  • Easy to consume 
  • Supports a sense of calm
