THE GREENEST SAYS:
Let’s talk about the CBD industry for a second. One of the biggest issues CBD has is trust. There’s stigma that a lot of people think it’s the same thing as marijuana (it’s not.) And there’s also a lot of brands that are trying to make a quick buck off the growing interest in CBD. And that can make it hard to tell the good companies from that not-so-good. One thing we’ve learned is if a company goes the extra mile when it comes to certifications and transparency and giving back to the community then that’s a good sign. And that’s what we have with Bluebird Botanicals and these Bluebird Botanical CBD Gummies.
Bluebird is a certified B-Corp. Which means they have been audited to have a nice little balance of environmental and social impact. So they try to make the world a little better, which is more than we can say for most companies. And they have the certification to prove it.
OK, so what about the CBD, you ask? Well, these gummies are full spectrum hemp. Which is our favorite type of gummy. It has all the cannabinoids to kick in the entourage effect for you endocannabinoid system (we like our endocannabinoid system to be in homeostasis.) (Yes, we never expected to use the word homeostasis as much as we do.) Anyway, this is a high-quality CBD product sourced from Colorado. They say they use “organic regenerative farming practices” but they are not USDA-certified organic. (Which is OK.) They do everything that we want to see in a CBD company. Is it the healthiest way to consume CBD? Probably not as it contains cane sugar. But they sure do taste good.
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
It’s a full-spectrum hemp CBD gummy that comes in watermelon, strawberry and lemon flavors. It uses fractionated coconut (MCT) oil as the vehicle as well. If that means something to you, then you probably already know a whole bunch about this product. We appreciate that you’re still reading this. We might even include a joke later on just to keep you here.
WHO ARE THESE Bluebird Botanical CBD Gummies FOR?
Since these gummies are full-spectrum, they are for anyone who likes to use CBD for anxiety to mood. Gummies have the double benefit of including some CBD into your day and being a little treat. Which is always a mood booster on its own. And each gummy contains only 15 calories. Which isn’t a lot, as long as you don’t mindlessly inhale the whole bag (please don’t do that.) (There’s also someone high-fiving a cat on their instagram page. So that’s fun.)
We wouldn’t recommend using these for pain so much. Especially if you have acute pain. Then you should probably go to the doctor.
HOW MUCH CBD IS IN THIS PRODUCT?
Each gummy contains 15mgs of full spectrum hemp CBD. And since it is a full-spectrum product it also contains a very small amount of THC. Less than 0.3% THC to be exact. And there are 30 gummies in each little pouch for a total of 450mgs of CBD in the entire bag.

WILL THESE Bluebird Botanical CBD Gummies GET YOU HIGH?
No, it shouldn’t. Well, as long as you stick to the recommended doses. There is such a small amount of THC (as we mentioned previously, less than 0.3%) that that won’t get you high. Or have any psychoactive effect at all as long as you don’t eat three bags full. If you have any fears of THC, you might want to consider starting with a CBD isolate or broad spectrum product as those contain zero (or nearly zero) THC.

HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU TAKE?
If you are completely new to CBD, we always suggest starting out with half a gummy. Why rush it? Start low and go slow just to make sure CBD is right for you. Then work you way up to one gummy. If you’re an experienced CBD consumer, then go hog wild with one whole gummy. Yeee-Haw.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO BECOME EFFECTIVE?
This is always a tricky question. Everyone is different. And CBD isn’t like an aspirin (think of it more like fish oil.) You won’t feel like a million bucks 15 minutes after consuming it. And anyone who tells you that is probably not trustworthy. We like to caution that CBD can take 2-4 weeks to become full effective. There’s a reason they don’t do one-day CBD clinical trials. Give it some time. Let it do it’s thing and then decide if it’s right for you.

IS THIS PRODUCT LEGAL?
Since it has less than 0.3% THC it is totally and completely legal. That’s thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill that made all CBD products with less than 0.3% THC federally lega.
ARE THESE Bluebird Botanical CBD Gummies TESTED AND CERTIFIED?
Yes, they test all their products at third-party ISO labs. And they post the results of all their lab tests online. Which is another aspect of their transparency that we love to see.
