First Impressions

Hemp Bombs’ strong social media presence, as well as the many positive customer reviews surrounding their products, was a joy to watch while making our Hemp Bombs review.

With its unique and wide array of products, its engaging website design, and its tight-knit community, Hemp Bombs definitely stands out from other CBD companies.

Seeing how the brand caught our attention, we decided to conduct some in-depth research, try out some of their products, and see whether they truly deserve all the recent praise they get.

Company Background

Founded: 2016

Production: CBD-based dietary supplements and products for wellness and alternative medicine

Based in: Tampa, FL, USA

Retail Market: US and International

Hemp Bombs Maxim: “Premium CBD”

Unfortunately, we’ll start off this CBD Hemp Bombs review on a negative note. There’s very little info about the company itself, as they’re not fully transparent. Though not in the sense that they have something to hide or that they’re a bad company, mind you. We just firmly believe that people want to know as much as possible about a brand before buying new products. And rightly so.

However, what we do know is that Hemp Bombs is a Tampa-based CBD company that hasn’t been in the industry for too long, yet has quickly earned the trust of their customers. Although not being overly transparent, they’re more than honest about their products — all of them.

Now, let’s get more in-depth.

CBD Oil Quality and Purity

Various Hemp Bombs CBD reviews reveal that users are extremely happy that the company sources their hemp from certified organic hemp farmers. Nevertheless, Hemp Bombs disclosed that even though their hemp was 100% organic, pesticide-free, and non-toxic, they couldn’t guarantee that all of their products were organic, vegan, GMO-free, or gluten-free.

All of their products are tested both in-house and in third-party labs, ensuring the safety, quality, and purity of every batch. Hemp Bombs tests its products in Arizona-based Desert Valley Testing and Florida-based Green Scientific Labs. All the test results are available on their website, both in the “Learn” section (where you can search the lab tests by product or batch number) and in every product description. Hemp Bombs reviews highlight that the lab results can also be accessed through a QR code printed on every product.

Each batch is tested for cannabinoids, pesticides, heavy metals, and residuals. Additionally, the testing also includes a microbial analysis that confirms there’s no E. colli, Salmonella, Aspergillus, yeast and mold, and so on.

In short: all Hemp Bombs products are of the highest quality and have passed each test with flying colors.

Are Hemp Bombs Products Safe to Use?

All Hemp Bombs products have CoAs that confirm they’re completely safe to use. However, you should follow our general advice:

  • Always follow the recommended Hemp Bombs CBD dosage.
  • Prior to trying any Hemp Bombs product, always consult with a physician; especially if you suffer from an illness, have a chronic condition, or take some medications that may interact with CBD.
  • If you’re allergic to any of the ingredients in Hemp Bombs products (ingredient lists are available in every product description) do NOT use them.
  • If you notice any CBD oil side-effects consult with your physician immediately.
  • Don’t use CBD products if you’re pregnant or nursing.
  • Don’t give your pet CBD products if they’re pregnant or nursing.

Hemp Bombs Review of Selected Products

Hemp Bombs offers more than a wide range of products. It was fairly difficult to choose just a handful of products to review since all Hemp Bombs seem amazing, and we read only good things about all of them. So, we decided to try a couple of products from each category, and here are our thoughts.

1. Hemp Bombs CBD Gummies Review

Product Name: CBD Original Gummies

Product strength: 900mg

Size: 60ct

Recommended for: relaxation and optimizing your well-being

Advised dosage and treatment: 1–2 gummies

Natural Ingredients:

  • Broad-spectrum hemp extract
  • Passiflora

Price: $99.99

CBD concentration: 15mg per gummy

Hemp Bombs has an exceptional selection of gummies. You can get gummies of higher potency (there’s more than one amazing 1050mg Hemp Bombs review on the internet), you can get the original flavor, and you can even get Hemp Bombs CBD gummies for sleep. We decided to give the classic flavor another try — seeing how the original Hemp Bombs gummies are on our list of the best CBD gummies — and do a more detailed review.

The gummies smell fruity and sweet, and the taste is subtle with just a hint of herbs. Their consistency is similar to that of regular gummies, making them easier to chew.

The onset takes about 45 minutes, which is a bit slow (yet that’s the case with all edibles), and it persists for eight hours on average. Besides being super tasty, Hemp Bombs gummies reviews from our team members reveal that the gummies provide the general feeling of relaxation, as well as tension and muscle pain relief.

2. Hemp Bombs CBD Oil Review

Product Name: CBD Oil Tincture

Product strength: 300mg

Size: 30ml

Flavor: peppermint

Recommended for: encouraging overall wellness

Advised dosage and treatment: ½ dropper

Natural Ingredients: 

  • Hemp oil
  • Broad-spectrum hemp extracts
  • Grape-seed oil
  • MCT oil

Price: $29.99

CBD concentration: 5mg per serving, 60 servings per bottle

The oil has an extremely refreshing minty scent and tastes like pure mint, probably because it has artificial flavoring, as many a Hemp Bombs oil review has highlighted.

The fluid consistency makes the oil easy to combine with food, shakes, smoothies, and juices. It also doesn’t leave a residual taste after taking it directly under your tongue.

The onset takes some time, about an hour, but lasts long — around eight hours. This makes the oil a good preventative measure for a variety of conditions.

The oil lowers anxiety levels, reduces stress response, and alleviates the mood, in general. Besides making you feel good, the oil can also help manage various pains and aches.

3. Hemp Bombs ELiquid Review

Product Name: Ultra Premium CBD E-Liquid

Product strength: 75mg

Size: 16.5ml

Flavor: Exotic Watermelon Kush

Recommended for: relaxation

Advised dosage and treatment: not indicated

Natural Ingredients: broad-spectrum hemp extracts

Price: $14.99

CBD concentration: 75mg BCD per bottle

The e-liquid comes in 15 amazing flavors. It smells and tastes fantastic, and provides rapid onset. It relaxes the user and alleviates stress levels, and there’s almost nothing to dislike. Almost.

The thing we, and a great many Ultra Premium Hemp Bombs reviews, didn’t like is — PG.

Now, propylene glycol (PG) is a common ingredient in cosmetics and food and is considered safe. However, recent research has discovered that exposing PG to high temperatures, which includes vaping, breaks the PG down into harmful components like arsenic and formaldehyde.

The PG in Hemp Bombs e-liquids comes in fairly small concentrations and is probably nothing to worry about, but it’s worth mentioning.

Overall, this is an awesome vape oil. In fact, we loved it so much, we put it on our list of the best vape oils.

4. Hemp Bombs Syrup Review

Product Name: Complete Relaxation CBD Syrup

Product strength: 100mg

Size: 4 fl oz

Flavor: Fruit Punch

Recommended for: stress and anxiety alleviation, and relaxation

Advised dosage and treatment: 1oz

Natural Ingredients:

  • Broad-spectrum hemp extract
  • Water
  • Corn syrup

Price: $19.99

CBD concentration: 25mg per serving, 4 servings per bottle

The smell of syrup is fairly mild and is a combination of lemon, cherry, and orange. It tastes like the fruits, too, but after the sweetness fades, it leaves a slightly bitter taste at the back of the throat.

If you’re not a huge fan of the lingering aftertaste, you can freely mix it in oatmeal or a smoothie to hide it as this product is worth trying; numerous other Hemp Bombs reviews support this thought as well.

About 45 minutes after consuming the syrup, you’ll feel greatly at ease and relaxed. This CBD syrup is also great for insomnia and is a good replacement for sleeping pills. It can make you a bit drowsy, so it’s best to use it right before sleep.

5. Hemp Bombs CBD Pain Rub Review

Product Name: CBD Pain Freeze

Product strength: 400mg

Size: 4oz

Recommended for: soothing pains, aches, and inflammation in muscles and joints

Advised dodge and treatment: apply to painful areas up to four times a day

Natural ingredients:

  • Menthol
  • Water
  • Pure CBD extract
  • Terpenes

Price: $39.99

CBD concentration: 400mg per container

The smell is strong, minty, and intense. However, the harshness decreases as you apply it to your skin. The consistency is a bit slimy, but the balm almost melts into the skin, which absorbs it quickly, and it doesn’t leave a sticky or greasy residue.

The onset is almost immediate, and one CBD balm Hemp Bombs review says that it’s excellent for arthritis pain. We have to admit that it felt really good, our muscles definitely felt less tense, and the effects lasted for about two hours.

6. Max Chill Hemp Bombs Review

Product Name: Max Chill Shot

Product strength: 75mg

Size: 2oz

Flavor: Fruit Punch

Recommended for: complete relaxation, stress and anxiety relief

Advised dodge and treatment: 2oz

Natural ingredients:

  • Broad-spectrum hemp extract
  • Water
  • Corn syrup

Price: $14.99

CBD concentration: 75mg per container

Another unique product from Hemp Bombs is this fruity and citrusy chill shot. It takes about 45 minutes to feel the effects, but it will be well worth your while. The shot will make you feel calm, relaxed, and the tension from your body will simply melt away. While it leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste, the effects that last up to 10 hours are definitely worth it.

7. Hemp Bombs Pet CBD Oil Review

Product Name: Premium 125mg Pet CBD Oil

Product strength: 125mg

Size: 30ml

Recommended for: anxiety reduction, calmness, relaxation, and overall wellness

Advised dodge and treatment: one serving per day

Natural ingredients:

  • Broad-spectrum hemp extract
  • MCT oil
  • Hemp oil

Price: $16.99

You probably wondered whether CBD oil is good for your dog, and we’re here to say that it’s great! Hemp Bombs provides a dosage chart, as the dosage depends on many factors; it’s not one size fits all pups.

Just 30 minutes after administering CBD oil to your dog, you can notice changes in their behavior. The oil is great for separation anxiety as it triggers calmness and relaxation.

Hemp Bombs CBD oil reviews say that the oil is also great for cats that have skin allergies and irritations, soothing them quickly, nurturing the skin, and enhancing healthy hair growth.

Moreover, you can easily mix it in with your pet’s food, so they won’t even notice it.

Final Verdict

The Pros

  • 100% THC-free
  • Third-party lab tests available
  • Free shipping, discounts, and bundles
  • Available in stores and online
  • 30-day money-back guarantee

The Cons

  • No full spectrum oils
  • MCT oil may be an issue for people with coconut allergies
  • Artificial flavoring, corn syrup, and added sugars in gummies, lollipops, and syrups
  • All products have artificial and natural added flavoring
  • Lack of company transparency

Final Verdict

Even though there were a few things we didn’t like, overall, we loved Hemp Bombs products and we believe they’re worth trying out. We appreciate that the company is open enough about their products and testing, and we love their efforts to help inform and educate customers. The great care for their consumer base can also be seen in the detailed product descriptions and discount programs. More natural ingredients wouldn’t hurt, though.

We hope that our Hemp Bombs review will help you find and enjoy your favorite new CBD product.

FAQs

Do Hemp Bombs get you high?

No, Hemp Bombs’ products will NOT get you high. They’re all made from high-quality industrial hemp and have less than 0.3% THC. 

How long does it take for Hemp Bombs to work?

This mostly depends on the product you use. Edibles usually take more time to kick in than topicals, for example. If you use topicals for, say post-workout muscle tension relief, you’ll probably feel the effects right after the application, whereas the onset of edibles may take up to two hours. This depends on a variety of factors.
