CBDfx CBD Gummy Bears
With the demand for hassle-free, accessible ways of consuming CBD on the rise, CBD gummies have become one of the most common ways we’ve seen brands enter into the CBD edible space and meet this demand. CBDFx are no different; the company’s CBD gummy bears aim to double up as a tasty treat as well as a CBD fix for would-be users. In this review, we look into whether they managed to pull it off.
If you’ve spent some time clicking through this site, you’re sure to have come across the term “bioavailability.” In Lehman’s terms, it’s simply a measure of the ability for CBD to be absorbed into your bloodstream and, therefore, a measure of its effectiveness.
When discussing edible CBD products, bioavailability is never mentioned as a positive. That’s because eating CBD and absorbing it through the gut is just about the least effective method of taking cannabidiol, especially when compared to CBD vaping.
That’s why when it comes to edible products, like Love Hemp’s CBD Gummy Bears, it is important for there to be enough CBD in the product to overcome its inherently poor bioavailability.
Unfortunately, as with most CBD gummies, CBDfx’s offering is somewhat lacking when it comes to CBD concentration. With 300mg in a bottle of 60 gummies, that makes out for around 5mg of CBD in each. That means you’re likely to need at least 3 or 4 for the CBD to have any discernible effect at all.
Having said that, you can continue to eat more depending on your preference and tolerance, but this can quickly become expensive. It’s also worth remembering that eating CBD is likely to not only be less effectively absorbed into your bloodstream but less quickly too, so you may have to wait a while before it really kicks in.

The other factor we need to think about is pretty obvious, taste.
Why would you buy gummy bears, CBD-infused or not, that taste… well, terrible?
This concept isn’t taken on board by brands as readily as you might think. In fact, we can remember sampling Love Hemp’s gummy domes a while back and being less than impressed with the flavour of those. In one word, they were “blech.”
However, CBDfx’s gummies actually don’t taste half-bad. While not going as far as competing with a bag of Haribo, they certainly aren’t going to make you want to gag, which is really the most important thing.
This assessment is backed up with customer reviews, with very few people reporting that CBDfx’s gummies left a bad taste in the mouth.
For those of you feeling a bit more adventurous, in addition to CBDfx’s standard mixed berry flavour, the gummies are also available in the following varieties:
- Turmeric and Spirulina
- Chamomile and Passionflower
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Women’s Multivitamin
- Men’s Multivitamin
3rd Party Testing
As would be expected from a company as reputable as CBDFx, these products come with 3rd party lab reports to prove there is nothing unwanted present in the hemp extract.

What’s The Verdict?
With gummies being the go-to edible for many a CBD brand, CBDfx has tried to do things a little differently by offering an interesting variety of flavours with different options having different nutritional additions, like biotin and multivitamins for men and women.
While the CBD concentration isn’t blowing anyone out of the water, it’s solid enough for these gummies to pack a punch if you take enough of them.
Having said this, if you’re a hardcore CBD user then CBD edibles aren’t ever really going to cut it, primarily due to the low bioavailability associated with eating CBD, but we’ll get onto that.
In terms of flavour, CBDfx’s gummies again aren’t going to set the world alight, but they do manage to keep everyone happy in that they are at least palatable. While this may not be saying much, in our CBD gummy experience, this is a big thumbs up given how terrible the texture and taste can be. This is especially true when the product is 100% vegan, just like CBDfx’s gummies are.
To sum up, when it comes to gummies, you really can’t go too far wrong with CBDfx’s Vegan CBD Gummies.
