We offer the following options:

  • THC-free Pure CBD Gummy Bears
  • THC-free Pure CBD Gummy Worms
  • THC-free Pure CBD Gummy watermelons
  • Non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, 100% Organic Full Spectrum CBD Gummies

Full-spectrum, in comparison to broad-spectrum and Pure CBD isolate, will better promote what is known as the “Entourage Effect.”

The benefits of CBD products become more transparent when it is manufactured as a full spectrum hemp extract rather than a Pure CBD isolate hemp extract.

The reason for this is because Full Spectrum offers several more active phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that are naturally-derived from hemp plants.


Our CBD edible gummies are offered at 25 mg of CBD per gummy. We’ve found this to be the best serving size as 10 mg CBD and 15 mg CBD is just not potent enough.

CBD gummies are the 2nd most popular CBD product online.  They offer easy to understand servings (each gummy contains 25mg of full-spectrum hemp extract), amazing taste, and transportable sizes for when you’re on the go.


As for ingredients, both artificial and natural, we’ve found that many CBD Brands like to infuse their gummies with ingredients like:

  • l-theanine
  • lemon balm
  • turmeric
  • cane sugar
  • corn syrup
  • artificial sweeteners
  • melatonin

Most of these ingredients we don’t necessarily have a problem with, but we’d like to make clear that we DO NOT infuse our gummies with melatonin.

We’ve always speculated that if any CBD company has the need to infuse their gummies with melatonin, it must be because the quality of their CBD is subpar and their proposed “sleep gummies” are simply infused with OTC sleep aid ingredients.

If you are looking for a cannabinoid-based sleep promoting product, we suggest our newly formulated CBN oil.

What are cbd gummies?

A CBD edible that is gelatin-based and created with water/juice, a form of sweetener, and infused with an industrial hemp extract; Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a single chemical compound known as a cannabinoid and is naturally derived from Cannabis Sativa plants.

CBD gummies can be broken down into three different types:

  • Full Spectrum
  • Broad Spectrum
  • Pure CBD

These three groups can be further broken down into an unlimited amount of options such as unique sizes, flavors, and CBD potencies.

What Types of CBD Gummies Can I Buy?

Based on the specific extraction method used, there are three types of CBD gummies:

  1. Full Spectrum CBD Gummies

    Full-spectrum means that the CBD sourced was extracted from cannabis plants like hemp with full cannabinoid, terpene, and flavonoid profiles. This means it contains the entire cannabinoid profile from extraction, it has not been manipulated to isolate or remove specifics. Full-spectrum, for instance, contains THC, the cannabinoid responsible for the “high” effect we associate with marijuana. Full-spectrum CBD, if sourced from hemp, or according to standards for legal purposes, should contain less than 0.3% THC which shouldn’t influence a drug test nor cause any psychotropic side effects.

  2. Broad Spectrum CBD Gummies

    Use cannabinoid extracts that through processing or manipulation, have removed certain cannabinoids. This may produce for instance a full cannabinoid profile gummy that has selectively removed all THC. Generally, another potential negative of broad-spectrum CBD gummies is that they don’t offer the entourage effect because it is missing some phytocannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes from the plants that the broad-spectrum CBD extract was sourced from.

  3. Pure CBD Gummies

    These are gummies that only have pure CBD incorporated in the mix. The product used for this is CBD Isolate and is a form of extraction that scientifically targets a specific cannabinoid. What is important to note here is that having no other cannabinoids to support the CBD molecule may potentially undermine its effectiveness.

How To Make CBD Gummies?

There are 3 specific ways to make CBD Gummies.

  1. CBD-Infused Gummies

    These are directly infused with CBD at the ingredient mixing stage. They may contain CBD oil or isolate within the mixture before production. Some gummies like Cannabidiol Life’s Vegan, Organic, Non-GMO Gummies incorporate hemp extract directly into the product. Infused gummies may have an herb or plant-like taste, often sweetened or enhanced for a more natural feel and integrity.

  2. CBD-Sprayed Gummies

    Gummies produced in this way incorporate one of the extraction methods into a water or oil-based adhesive concoction that will stick and dry on gummies. This is generally how companies add CBD in a cost-effective way or may increase or decrease already infused gummies for an extra kick.

  3. Rolled or Tossed CBD Gummies

    Gummies produced in this fashion will have CBD isolate directly applied as an additive to whatever sweetener is flaked onto them. Generally, gummies produced in this way blend isolate mixed with sweetener which is then tossed with wet gummies until fully coated.

How Many Types of CBD Gummies Are There?

The primary distinctions between one CBD gummy to the next while disregarding the shape, color, and taste, are the following two things:

  • The Type of CBD Extract Used
  • The Gummy Production Method Used

Let’s break this down further for a more direct answer.  There are:

  • three (3) specific types of CBD products
  • three (3) different CBD gummy manufacturing methods used (more or less)

What Do CBD Gummies Do?

The answer to this question is not necessarily what CBD gummies do, but more so, what CBD does to the human body.  The gummy aspect is irrelevant in regards to offering you the correct answer.  Cannabidiol (CBD) acts on the human body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS), naturally present in all mammals, which helps promote bodily “homeostasis” or a balanced state of well being by promoting better communication between the human bodies internal management system.

We’ve created an amazing, in-depth article called, “What Does CBD do?” and we highly advise that you give it a read.  There is a wonderful educational video on there as well.

How Do CBD Gummies Work?

Cannabinoids interact with receptors in the human body to regulate a number of functions such as mood, appetite, pain, sleep, and the stress response. These receptors make up what’s known as the endocannabinoid system, or ECS for short.

The ECS was discovered in the late 1980s and appears to promote harmony or synergy among our body’s other systems, such as the nervous and digestive.  This process is known as homeostasis and is considered the main factor in the overall balance between the body’s various systems.

In fact, cannabis has so many potential uses as a relief supplement, it’s now being hailed as a “miracle plant” by a growing number of patients.  This isn’t surprising as many civilizations have been using cannabis for thousands of years and now, CBD, all on its own, is showing some of the same promising results.

CBD Gummies VS. THC Gummies

Both CBD gummies and THC gummies have been shown to potentially help with many wellness concerns, but we’re here to talk about the differences!

As the legality of marijuana and other cannabis-based products continues to tighten up all of the grey areas, consumers are becoming more selective, and cautious, with their choices. CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) are the two most common chemical compounds found in the Cannabis genus.


Here Are The Top 3 Differences Between CBD and THC Gummies:

  1. CBD is the main compound sourced from Industrial Hemp plants, while THC is the main compound of Marijuana plants.
  2. CBD does not cause a euphoric high, THC does.
  3. Industrial Hemp-derived CBD is Federally Legal, THC is not.


Both CBD and THC gummies have been shown to potentially have certain medical benefits. In terms of negative side effects, they’re also both considered to be mild. Still, it’s a good idea to always consult with your doctor before taking cannabinoids in order to minimize the risk of negative drug interactions with any medicines you may be taking.

What Are The Benefits Of CBD Gummies?

While the CBD industry is prohibited for making any medical claims for any specific medical condition via the direction of the Food and Drug Administration, CBD consumers, as well as various medical & scientific studies, have reported some type of positive benefit after consuming or adding CBD to their diet. 

We highly recommend doing your own research and we recommend using the NIH, National Institutes of Health Website, or as a starting point.

We’ve conveniently added a few links below to be directly connected to a medical study for specific health and medical condition studies.


Specific Health Conditions Connected To CBD

How Many CBD Gummies Should I Take?

The amount of CBD gummies a person should eat is completely based on the person’s weight. Here is the mathematical equation to find out your specific recommended dosage so that you can find out how many CBD gummies you should be taking: 

Body Weight (lbs) x 0.325mg (CBD) = Recommended CBD MG Dose

Once you know the milligrams of CBD that you need per serving, you can then calculate how many CBD gummies you need to eat by dividing the serving size by the amount of CBD inside each gummy; it’s that easy! 

Math Equation Worked Out In A Real Life Scenario:

  • Suggested serving size (50mg) / Amount of CBD per gummy (25mg) = 2 CBD Gummies Per Dose

Best DIY Organic CBD Gummies Recipe

assorted CBD gummies are made in molds with droppers

Did you know its possible to make your own CBD gummies at home with just a few ingredients? We are proud to present this easy to make CBD gummy recipe to our Cannabidiol Life family. The above short summary also has links to all products used. 

One important decision to make beforehand is whether or not the gummies you wish to produce will be full spectrum or pure CBD (no THC). Full-spectrum gummies will want a high-quality CBD oil, for pure CBD gummies you’ll need isolate.



  • 1/2 cup of juice, preferably Clear Fruit Juices
  • 1 tablespoon Honey (other sweeteners of choice may be used, but add to taste!)
  • 2 & 1/3 tablespoons Gelatin
  • 70mL of CBD Oil for full spectrum gummies or 3.5G of pure CBD powder for THC-free gummies

Besides the main ingredients, you’ll also want to purchase in advance silicon gummy molds.


  1. Pour 1/2 cup of juice into a saucepan set on low heat.
  2. Add the sweetener and CBD of choice.
  3. Add the gelatin.
  4. Wisk until above products fully dissolve (not grainy) and then remove from heat.
  5. Using a dropper add mix into the mold.
  6. Place in the fridge until solid, approximately 1 hour.

Using the molds linked above will yield approx. 125 gummies at (+/-) 25mg CBD per piece.


You can substitute honey for maple syrup, stevia drops, etc. Taste test a small amount for sweetness to your liking.

If you would like to make a vegan gummy, vegan gelatin Druid’s Grove is an excellent replacement.

Keep gummies in the refrigerator and they should last at least one week. 


Calories: 27, Sodium: 5mg, Potassium: 20mg, Carbohydrates: 5g, Sugar: 4g, Protein: 2g, Vitamin C: 0.2%. CBD: approx. 25mg per gummy.


We feel that keeping gummies as natural as possible is important. We recommend, for those willing to go the extra step, to purchase a juicer and make fresh juices.  Another option is to use pulp-free organic juices.

If you really want to use real sugar, in a pinch it is best to add small half teaspoons at a time and adjust according to sweetness preferences. If you prefer a sugar substitute like Stevia, only the liquid drops will work (not powder). Syrups like agave and maple work just fine though the flavor may be strong so adjust measurements again according to taste.
