I first tested a product by Orange County CBD back in May 2020, being their OC CBD gummy bears and I instantly fell in love with them.
Since then, I’ve managed to try a number of the award winning brands product line, from vape juice to CBD oils and everything in between.
They now have a couple of new product launches, therefore I’m excited to give both of them a try, starting off with the CBD gummy hearts mini bag, followed by the strawberry kush disposable vape pen.
How Many Do You Get In A Pack?
The mini bags work well if you’re on a tight budget, if you want some that easily fit into your pocket or bag, or if you want CBD gummies at a few locations so you always have an emergency back-up supply.
With each pack, you get 6 gummies, coming to a total weight of 25 grams.
How Much CBD Do You Get?
Each gummy heart has a total of 16mg of CBD, so in a full bag you will get 96mg of CBD. During the testing I consumed 2 gummy hearts per day, providing me with 32mg of CBD, however I split my dosage, having one in the morning and one in the early afternoon.
I generally tend to avoid having gummies in the evening due to the presence of sugar and glucose syrup, instead preferring to have them earlier in the day so I can burn it off.
My experience with CBD gummies has been that they take quite a bit longer than oil to take effect, normally around 2 hours, so remember this when you’re working out the best time to take them for you.
How Do They Taste?
Incredibly moreish, it was hard to stop at two! They’re strawberry flavoured, while they also contain apple fruit juice concentrate.
However, as tasty as they are, the FSA recommends not consuming more than 70mg of CBD in a day, meaning you shouldn’t have more than 4 CBD gummy hearts in a 24 hour period, providing you with 64mg of CBD.
Are They Vegan Friendly?
Yes they are, CBD gummies are becoming more commonly vegan friendly, with brands opting for pectin over gelatine, however turn back two years ago and Orange County CBD were the first brand I saw that had made this decision.
I might not be vegan, but I am trying to cut down on my meat intake, so I’m happy to see a plant based alternative being used.
Why Opt For The Hearts Over The Different Shapes?
The reality is that, beyond the individual quantity of CBD in the gummy and the amount you get in a pack, your choice on which to choose is down to personal preference and taste.
Orange County CBD have an extensive range of CBD gummies, most brands have one pack and you’re stuck with those, whereas OC seem to have really ventured into every possible variant, including my personal favourite, the gummy worms.
What I like about these being offered in a small bag is that a lot of people I know don’t actually take CBD daily. While I might practically live off cannabidiol, many others just want to keep it on them for situations when they feel like they might need it, such as before a conference or an important meeting, therefore having a spare, low-cost bag of CBD gummies seems like a sensible idea.
It will also allow you to give them a try without heavily investing your money into a product, not knowing whether it will get the results you’re seeking, so it’s very much a ‘risk free’ option.
Where Can I Buy This From?
You can order a mini grab bag of the CBD gummy hearts for £3.99, however you may want to top up your basket to £25, so you can benefit from free next day delivery, therefore you might want to check out the Orange County CBD Oil.
If you reckon you’ll burn through the six gummy hearts too quickly, you can order a double pack for £7.58, saving you 5%, or a triple pack for £10.77, saving you 10%, or even a twelve pack for £33.52, saving you 30%! To give you an idea of the savings, you’re basically getting 12 packs for the price of 8.
