Essential Candy CBD review

Essential Candy Review

Free THC product sample

Essential Candy’s CBD-infused hard candies are a delicious twist on the classic hard candy we all know and love. Their hard candies are made with high-quality CBD isolate to ensure a pure dose of CBD in every candy.

The flavors within these sweet treats are great, and they don’t taste nearly as weed-y as some CBD edibles can. With that small of a dose, I only began to feel relaxing effects after an hour, so I suspect these hard candies are best for beginners.

CBD isolate is also less potent than broad and full-spectrum, especially for pain, insomnia or anxiety. But, if you’re just looking for an all-natural hard candy with a mild dose of CBD, these are pretty decent and perfect for on-the-go dosing.

Highlights
When they first arrived, Essential Candy’s CBD hard candies looked just like a regular bag of candy or even cough drops. However, they taste much better than either of those: the all-natural flavors combined with super subtle cannabis notes offer a great profile in the mouth. However, with only one 10 mg. option, their mild effects may not be enough for the CBD connoisseur. For beginners, though, these gentle relaxing effects might be just perfect for everyday consumption. Even more? I appreciate the fact that each candy was individually wrapped, perfect for sharing in on the girl situations.

Essential Candy CBD Peppermint

Essential Candy Peppermint CBD review

Super refreshing in mouth and soothing in the body, Essential Candy’s Peppermint Hard Candies are great starter doses of CBD. Every candy contains a mild 10mg dose of CBD isolate, as well as all-natural peppermint essential oils and no preservatives or artificial colors.

With the minty flavor, I found these best to take at night, right before bed, for a relaxing treat. However, the small dose didn’t make too much of a difference; at 20mg, though, I enjoyed the reduced muscle tension and calm mind about an hour after consumption.

Product Summary

To the naked eye, these hard candies look like regular ol’ candies. However, in the mouth, you’ll notice a wonderful blend of peppermint and cannabis. The candies taste great, though their low 10mg dose might only be effective enough for beginners. If you’re more experienced, try two or three candies instead, and you’re likely to experience the same full-body relaxation as I did.

Essential Candy CBD Mandarin

Essential Candy CBD Mandarin flavor

There’s nothing better than a bright, orange-flavored hard candy. Well, other than a hard candy infused with CBD, of course. Essential Candy’s Mandarin Orange Hard Candies are deliciously crafted with CBD isolate to ensure a totally THC-free, plant-based experience.

Each dose comes with 10mg which is ideal for those who take lower, gentler doses of CBD. After consumption, I felt effects in about 45 minutes, and though they were mild, I definitely felt more uplifted and ready to tackle my day. Because of this, I suggest enjoying these orange hard candies in the morning.

Product Summary

These mandarin orange hard candies are individually wrapped in easy-to-use packages, making them accessible and enjoyable for everyone. The orange essential oils are natural and delicious, swallowing the cannabis taste entirely. They felt good on the tongue and provided gentle feelings of motivation and energy after about an hour, though they weren’t as potent as I was hoping. Two candies, though, did the trick.

Essential Candy CBD Lemon & Ginger

Hard CBD candy lemon flavor

Lemon, ginger, CBD, and essential oils: what more could you ask for? Essential Candy’s Lemon-Ginger Hard Candies are a delicious CBD-isolate infused candy that taste better than all of their other candies. The bright lemon essential oils paired with 10mg of CBD makes for both a relaxing yet uplifting experience.

While my muscles felt less tense after 45 minutes, more than anything, I noticed a clear headspace and consistent smile on my face. I’d recommend more experienced consumers take two candies, but just one of these refreshing treats has enough pure CBD for many to reap the plant-based rewards.

Product Summary

Individually packaged and easy to unwrap, these Essential Candy treats look and feel authentic. In the mouth, they taste absolutely delicious, with wonderful flavors of both ginger and lemon to dance around. Effects were a bit more mild than I would have liked, but after about an hour, they were still potent enough to have me feeling like a happy camper.
