I’m a sucker for packaging. And so I was immediately drawn to Lord Jones’ gumdrops, which are infused with broad spectrum CBD (not to be confused with full spectrum and isolate). It’s mighty convenient for frequent travelers like me who may want to take CBD while out and about: Just drop the (chichi) box in your purse—as opposed to worrying about leakage from a bottle of tincture. It also helps that they’re delicious—a little overly sweet but that’s hardly a crime. The downside? It’s pricey. Purchased online a nine-gumdrop box will set you back $45. In a shop like Clover Grocery in New York, it costs $50.
Got a sweet tooth? Into CBD? Then Potli’s CBD honey is what you’re looking for.
Let’s say you’re in no mood for edibles, vapes, or capsules. Or none of the aforementioned delivery methods suit your lifestyle. Simply buy a full-spectrum CBD tincture such as the one Ojai Energetics offers. It’s unlike most tinctures, which are clear and oil based. This one is a deep moss green—extracted from whole plant—and water soluble. So you can put a dropper full into your coffee, chai, smoothie, or anything else really. And you can be sure you’ll be consuming all of it. (There won’t be any residue sticking to the sides of your glass—the way it is with many other oil-based drops.) Another plus is that it’s surprisingly sweet for something that looks like a bitter green juice made of 100% kale. I typically use two full droppers in my (home-brewed) chai and it’s helped tremendously with post-workout soreness.
Aurora Elixirs is one of many CBD drinks in the market. But this one is the most refreshing.
For home cooks like me, I recommend CBD extra virgin olive oil because of its versatility. You can drizzle it on everything from salads to pizza and even brambleberry ice cream. I even make a miso-honey glaze while using a little bit of the stuff. In particular, I’m a big fan of Pot d’Huile, which was founded by San Francisco-based Yannick Crespo. It’s stellar. For one thing, it tastes exactly the way good EVOO should—with none of that “green” marijuana aftertaste. It also doesn’t remind me of Bertolli—not that there’s anything wrong with it. But you know, delicious EVOO is nothing like Bertolli. Crespo attributes Pot d’Huile’s non-compromising flavor with the ethanol extraction process that the company uses, which is slightly more expensive—in addition to using locally-sourced oil from Northern California. The flavor is so good that Pot d’Huile regularly hosts pop-up dinners with chefs who are so into it. (And if you ever find yourself in a city where they’re hosting, it’d be a shame to skip out.) But beyond all that, Pot d’Huile makes dosing easy: It’s 1mg of CBD per 1ml of olive oil. So all you’ll really need to incorporate CBD EVOO into your meals are measuring spoons. And yes, they do have THC olive oils as well—at $50 for 100ml. In the future, the company also has plans on creating a THC–CBD oil. Easy peasy.
Based on the above criteria, here are the best CBD capsules:

Regular dosing may allow you to empower your endocannabinoid system, or take advantage of the "entourage effect" with a full-spectrum CBD oil capsule. This is also why it's very important to research CBD brands. When buying a tablet for its potential health benefits, you want to avoid any harmful pesticides or solvents. A CBD supplement is meant to support wellness.
With all of the above factors in mind, here are the top CBD capsules based on customer reviews, price, and source of the hemp. Each product has also been reviewed by a third-party laboratory for label accuracy and potential contaminants, including heavy metals, residual solvents, and pesticides.
Hempura are very well known in the UK, and for good reason. They are the brand giving Evopure the best run for their money in terms of quality, and offer lab results and broad spectrum cannabinoid content in a similar manner.
Even worse, it can be incredibly difficult, if not impossible, for the uninitiated to tell the difference between the genuinely high-quality CBD capsules and the cheap imitations, such as hemp seed oil (something that doesn’t contain CBD at all).
4: CbdMD CBD Oil Capsules
Cannabis and hemp plants are filled with organic compounds known as cannabinoids. The hemp plant is thought to have over 112 cannabinoids, many of which are still mysterious in their effects.
Love CBD’s capsules are very unique. While the name would have you assuming the capsules are full spectrum, the term is generally used to refer to the full range of cannabinoids being present in the naturally occurring ratios in which they’re present in the hemp plant.
But that’s not all. Evopure’s products are:
