Hemp Bombs CBD Review

Our Rating: B, pretty good.  If you see this product in a headshop, it’s worth a try.  You can scan the QR code right there in the store and see the 3rd party labs.  Points off for lack of company info on the website and making claims that draw FDA scrutiny.
Hemp Bombs prides itself on its affordability and great flavors in its gummies.  It markets its products for several everyday life stresses.  One is for relief of everyday aches and pains.  On the website, it lists pain caused by fibromyalgia and RA.  Such claims can run afoul of FDA restrictions.  They are only allowed to market CBD as a supplement for non-medical purposes, such as stress or everyday pain.  This is a mark of a company that is up and coming, but this is hopefully just a minor flaw.

Next, they list stress reduction.  CBD has definitely shown some ability to release stress and if Hemp Bomb gummies provide an adequate dose of CBD for your stress, you can expect it can enhance your quality of life.

Hemp Bombs then list reducing inflammation as an effect of CBD, and this is also backed by scientific studies of CBD.  CBD can reduce inflammation and therefore reduce feelings of pain and fatigue.

Lastly, CBD can be used as a sleep aid, another use backed by research.

Hemp Bombs big selling point is its gummies taste good and are easy to take.  They do have the 3rd party labs and though our Facebook reviews seemed so so, people did say it made them sleepy which suggests it must have the CBD in it and is not a rip-off.  Also, Hemp Bombs made the decision to use CBD isolate, so you’re not getting Hemp Bomb CBD and terpenes together for the entourage effect.  There are upside and downside to that.  There could be fewer things you might be allergic to, but then you get no entourage effect.  You get a purer dosage of CBD, the cannabinoid used in the CBD studies.

Ingredients:

  • CBD (cannabidiol) isolate
    CBD molecules are hemp extracts consisting only of cannabidiol with no psychoactive THC or other ingredients such as terpenes.
  • Hemp oil
    Hemp oil refers to hemp seed oil.  It is a form of healthy fat with rejuvenating properties.  It does not contain cannabinoids and terpenes at detectable levels because it comes from hemp seed, not leaves or stems which have more cannabinoids and terpenes.  Hemp Bomb products get its CBD from the above mentioned CBD isolate made with industrial hemp leaves, not it’s hemp seed oil.
  • MCT oil
    MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides.  This is a form of healthy fat often derived from coconuts.  It is processed quickly by the liver and can have positive, anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Grape Seed Oil
    Grapeseed oil is pressed from grape seeds.  It’s a very healthy antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound, making it a good addition to Hemp Bomb’s products.

Standout Features of Hemp Bombs CBD Hemp Oil Drops

No THC

It has no psychoactive effect, due to having less than .3% THC.

Diverse products and flavors

Hemp Bombs has a long list of products, from gummies to vape and vape pens.  It’s encouraging that their gummies have a therapeutic level of CBD as many fun products like candies often don’t include enough CBD to have an effect.

Good prices

Hemp Bombs prides itself on giving discounts and affordable prices.

Risks and Side Effects

CBD products can cause a minor amount of drowsiness.  Some other possible side effects include diarrhea, headache, dry mouth, dry eyes, and increasing or decreasing the levels of other medications taken.

Hemp Bombs CBD Oil reviews

Review Rating: C.  “…nothing is working…”

This Facebook user tried many companies, one with good ratings from us (CW).  She did not see symptom improvement.

Review Rating: F.  “…Gummies have NO CBD.”

This Facebook user claims the gummies have no CBD at all and posts a lab report.  We can’t say for sure if this is legit or not but the lab report posted does show no CBD.  Hemp Bombs posts 3rd party lab results that show the required amount of CBD present in the gummies.  We, therefore, cannot confirm this claim.

Review Rating: B.  “…make him extremely sleepy.”

This Facebook user gives Hemb Bomb gummies to help her child for behavioral control.  Apparently, it calms him but makes him very sleepy.  This suggests there is some active ingredient causing the side effect of drowsiness and that ingredient should be CBD.  Hemp Bombs suggest on their website that the product is not for children.

Review Rating: C“has no effect on me…”

This Reddit user felt like Hemp Bombs oil was ineffective for his anxiety issues.

Rating, A.  “…been working great…”

This comes from Hemp Bomb’s own website but it seems appropriate to include a positive review as someone must have had an unambiguously positive experience even if it were placebo.

Q&A about Hemp Bombs CBD

Q:Are Hemp Bomb’s stuff legal products?
A: Yes, they contain no THC and are thus legal in all 50 states under the 2018 Farm Bill.
Q:What is the upside of Hemp Bomb products?
A: They claim to be affordable and diverse.  They may help address everyday stress and aches.
Q: Where are the 3rd party labs?
A: They display them on their website here:  https://hempbombs.com/lab-tests/  As far as we can tell, they are on the up and up.  We checked out the gummies and the lab we saw had 19 mg of CBD in the 15 mg gummies products so that’s a pretty good amount.  We, therefore, cannot confirm the claim made by the Facebook user that the gummies did not have the stated amount of CBD.  Some reviewers, even on Facebook, maybe industry plants.

Also, every product has a QR code you can supposedly scan and get the lab report right there from your phone I assume, so mad points for including that in their products.  Great move to create transparency.

Q: Is it organic?
A: They claim on the website that the products are organic, meaning they limit the use of harmful chemicals in farming the hemp.  In the FAQ section of the site, they do not provide proof of organic certification.
Q:Is it bad for the environment?
A: Hemp Bombs claims to be especially keen to use farming practices which are good for the plants and animals in the local environment.  Organic methods are thought to be better for the environment than industrial methods featuring heavy chemical use and genetic engineering.  However, Hemp Bombs gives no detailed information on the farms where they source their hemp plants.
Q:Do they use good farmers?
A: They claim to use experienced farmers, which we don’t doubt; however, in the FAQ section, they do not identify these farmers or even state a location for the farmers, except that they have begun sourcing from US farmers to take advantage of the expertise on the US farms.
Q:Where does the hemp come from?
A: They get it somewhere in the US.  For some reason, they don’t say what state they get it from, which is a bit alarming as many companies are proud to say where they get their hemp.  On the website, they even have a link where you can learn more about sourcing and they still don’t say where they get it from, only that they used to get in in Europe and now get it in the US.  I don’t know that any state grows bad hemp, so we don’t know the reason why they do not say where they grow their hemp.  It could be that since they don’t own the farms, the parent company doesn’t want them to say because they may be supplying several companies that pretend to be different brands, but that’s speculation.
Q:Can I eat the e-liquids?
A: Why?  They’re for vaping genius.  Just kidding.  Yeah, you can eat it.  We give Hemp Bombs points here for having common sense, knowing people will find themselves eating this stuff so it needs to be edible.
Q:Can it help with fibromyalgia?
A: Hemp Bombs says it can on their site, but this is a no according to the FDA so hopefully they will fix that.  If they are a good company, we want them to stay in business and not get shut down for making claims that could ruffle some feathers in the government or among makers of medicines like Pregabalin who don’t want to lose their market to CBD.
Q:Are Hemp Bomb products vegan?
A: There is animal-derived gelatin in the gummies.  You can try Hemp Bombs CBD Oil; its only ingredients appear to be plant-derived.
Q:How long till I get my order.
A: Give it 5 to 10 days if in the US.

Conclusion

Grade:  B

Hemp Bomb seems to make a solid product and has a great diversity of forms and flavors.  They appear to have combined good flavor with therapeutic levels of CBD.

We were concerned that we did not find very clear company information like the location of the company and where it sourced its hemp.  We don’t understand the need for the secrecy.  We also could not find out when the company started and who is behind the company.  Many CBD companies have tried to be fully transparent, letting you see the inner workings from the farm to the shelf, not so much for Hemp Bombs.  They have good placement in headshops apparently so it may not be so important for them to have so full an online presence.  If you happen to be in a headshop and you see this brand, it’s worth a try.  You can scan the QR code and get the labs.
