Hemp Bombs CBD Review: Are They Still The Bomb Diggity?
Hemp Bombs has become one of the most well-recognized CBD brands over the last few years. They originally caught my attention with their CBD vape juice flavors. Today they offer an entire line of hemp-based CBD products including capsules, oil tinctures, creams and more. All of their products are formulated with CBD isolate derived from pesticide-free industrial hemp. They provide third-party lab results for every batch. Their products are produced in an in-house facility in Tampa, Florida and they adhere to strict quality control standards. They are one of my personal favorite brands for THC-free CBD oils and more.
I’ve reviewed all three of their vape juice flavors in various strengths. All of my experiences over the years have been nothing but positive. I often recommend them for vapers, and non-vapers, especially for people looking for high quality CBD without THC, and some good fruity flavors. Recently, they have expanded their line-up with new products and updated their label design.
The products were sent courtesy of Hemp Bombs for the purpose of this review.
Hemp Bombs CBD Vape Juice
Hemp Bombs has refined their flavor selection over the years to their three best flavors. The CBD dosages range from 125 mg to 725 mg CBD per bottle, and they all come in a 70/30 VG/PG ratio. Their products are all CBD-isolate based, and the lab test results confirm that they are in fact THC-free, so they won’t cause you to get high or fail a drug test. All of their lab test results can be found on their site or by scanning a unique QR code located on every product. Their 750 mg strength flavors are available in 60 mL and the 125 mg version comes in 16.5 mL bottles.
A sweet and well-balanced candy flavor. It reminds me of candy watermelon Bubblicious gum. You barely even taste the CBD content, since it’s made with isolate powder. It’s easily an all-day vape for people who enjoy fruity flavors. This was in my top three out of all the original Hemp Bombs flavors I tried (out of over a dozen), and is still one of my favorite watermelon vapes of all time.
Another well-executed fruit flavor by Hemp Bombs. It has that real nectar taste that is missing from a lot of mango e-liquids. It’s one of their sweeter flavors, but they never over-do it. There isn’t much to say about this flavor other than it is spot on. It reminds me a little bit of the JUUL mango pods, so you could just use it to refill your pod vape and let ‘er rip!
This flavor is somewhat of a cross between a fresh blueberry and a candy. It tastes fresh and tangy, but has some added sweetness that reminds me of blueberry jam. For a blueberry flavor, it’s one of the best I’ve tried. This is a very hard fruit to recreate in an e-liquid and they’ve done a good job. I personally prefer the other two over this one, but if you are looking for a good blueberry CBD e-juice, Hemp Bombs has one for you.
Hemp Bombs CBD Oil Tinctures
Hemp Bombs also offers MCT-oil based tinctures for oral use. They contain the same broad spectrum extract as their other products, but are not suitable for vaping. They are currently available in five options—acai berry, orange creamsicle, peppermint, watermelon and flavorless. They also come in a wide range of strengths ranging from 125 to 5000 mg per 60 mL bottle and contain trace amounts of cannabinoids and terpenes according to the lab results.
I tried the watermelon, peppermint and flavorless and enjoyed all of them. They are a lot less sweet than if you were to take their vape juice sublingually, which I occasionally do from time to time. Here is a breakdown of each one and how they tasted.
- Watermelon – This flavor reminds me of Twizzlers candy. If you know what I’m talking about, or just want a nice watermelon flavor that’s not too sweet, you’ll like this one. It’s very smooth and subtle, but it leaves a fresh watermelon candy aftertaste that I enjoy.
- Peppermint – Peppermint is a flavor that meshes really well with CBD for some reason. If you want a cool refreshing aftertaste, that neutralizes the CBD taste as much as possible, this is going to be your best bet. If you love mint, you can’t go wrong.
- Flavorless – There is only a slight aftertaste with this one. Other than that, it’s virtually tasteless. It’s made from CBD isolate, so it’s not bitter. You barely taste the coconut oil or CBD. If you’re looking to mix CBD into your foods, this would be a good choice for that. If “nothing” had a taste, it would probably taste a lot like this tincture.
These are the 3 new flavors that were recently added to their line. I look forward to trying them.
Hemp Bombs CBD Capsules
The High Potency capsules that I received contain 25 mg each. They definitely worked, but aren’t as fun to take as their gummies or vapes. I opened up one of the capsules and it contains a fine white powder, so I couldn’t do my usual sublingual test. The ingredients consist of CBD isolate, Calcium and Magnesium. The capsules are green and about the size of your average vitamin or supplement. They are easy pretty to swallow, which makes them a good way to take CBD under the radar. Hemp Bombs capsules come in two varieties. The 15 mg (original) capsules and the high potency capsules contain 25 mg per capsule. They are available in 15, 30 and 60-count bottles and sample packs of 5. They don’t taste like hemp, in fact they don’t have much of a taste at all. Perfect for people who want to enjoy the benefits of CBD but don’t like the taste of CBD oil.
Hemp Bombs CBD Pain Freeze
I’m fortunate enough to not have any chronic pain. I do sometimes get neck cramps from working at a desk, so I applied it to my neck. At first, it just felt like any regular pain cream, but after a minute or two, the icy effect really kicked in! It seems like you don’t have to apply a lot of it to get that experience, because I didn’t even use that much. Though I didn’t have much pain to begin with, it made my neck feel more relaxed. If you are going to take it for severe pain, I would suggest pairing it with a daily serving of one of their vapes or tinctures
Since trying their pain rub, I recommended it to a close family member. She was the last person I would have thought I’d be telling about Hemp Bombs, but I didn’t want to see her in pain. To make a long story short, when she got the pain rub, I got a phone call. To my surprise, instead of her complaining about how it didn’t work (which I was ready for) she told me how much she loved it. Since then, my aunt has been regularly ordering it and it’s been working for her pain.
Hemp Bombs Pain Freeze comes in four varieties: 100 mg per 1 oz, 200 mg per 40 oz, 200 mg per 3 oz roll-on and a high potency version containing 1000 mg per 40 oz.
Hemp Bombs CBD Gummies
Hemp Bombs gummies are everything I could have hoped for. They’re soft, chewy and sour. I tested their High Potency gummies, which contain 25 mg CBD each. They helped me sleep, especially when I tried a double dose of them. I’ve tried plenty of CBD gummies, but these happen to be one of my favorites. They taste great, there is hardly any hemp aftertaste, and they are extremely potent. I shared the bottle with my family and it was gone within a matter of weeks. Hemp Bombs offers a great option if you are searching for high quality THC-free CBD gummies that are strong, delicious and effective.
They are available in three varieties. The Original gummies contain 15 mg, the High Potency gummies have 25 mg and the sleep gummies contain 15 mg each and 5 mg of melatonin. All of them are soft, chewy and have a nice sour gummy taste that I think a lot of people would enjoy.
Other Hemp Bombs products
Hemp Bombs has one of the most all-encompassing ranges of CBD-based products you will find. I had the chance to try out a few of their CBD-infused lollipops and they were actually very tasty. They’re sold in packs of 2 or 4, and available in four different flavors. Hemp Bombs also offers pre-mixed CBD chill shots and CBD syrup for mixing with drinks.
They also offer a variety of CBD transdermal patches, essential oils, beard oil and beard balm and even tattoo ointment, all formulated with their premium blend of CBD isolate. The other products available on their website include CBD treats and oils for pets. All of their products come with a scannable QR code linking to their independent lab results and are THC-free.
Here is a breakdown of the different types of CBD-based products that they offer:
- CBD gummies
- CBD capsules
- CBD oil tinctures
- CBD lollipops
- CBD e-liquid
- CBD pain rub
- CBD essential oils
- CBD topical patches
- CBD bubble bombs
- CBD lotion
- CBD beard oil & balm
- CBD tattoo ointment
- CBD heat spray
- CBD lip balm
- CBD relaxation shot
- CBD syrup
- CBD for pets
When it comes to CBD vape juice, Hemp Bombs is as good as they come. Their flavors are well-thought out and properly executed. If you’re into fruity CBD e-juice, Hemp Bombs is a solid choice. Their watermelon e-liquid is easily the best watermelon flavor I’ve ever had to this day.
Their non-vaping options are great too. I especially like the gummies and lollipops. The capsules, creams and tinctures were also on point. All of their products are well packaged, and made with high quality control standards. I like how they each have a unique QR code that lets you view the lab test results for that specific batch. I would hope to see more companies following this standard. I also think the new branding is fresh, and it makes their products even more attractive, even though I already know they are awesome.
There is not much for me to complain about. Hemp Bombs has always been consistently solid and modestly priced. But if you want a wide range of THC-free broad spectrum CBD products, Hemp Bombs is your best bet!
