It’s easy to get lost in jargon, mislabeling and unsubstantiated claims when searching for CBD gummies online – or anywhere else for that matter. Explosive demand coupled with loose FDA regulation have created an environment where buying quality CBD gummies, in many instances, is more difficult than procuring the intoxicating substance (cannabis) that CBD products are so often and incorrectly associated with. What’s even more troubling, products that claim to be CBD gummies sometimes substitute untested chemicals for real CBD. These products are not just ineffective – but dangerous as well.
So how do you go about buying the best CBD gummies to take yourself and give as presents to people you care about? We’ve complied the most trusted producers and retailers here, in ‘The Genie’s Best CBD Gummy Gift Guide’.
