CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found primarily in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. It’s one of many powerful cannabinoids found in hemp and is thought to help the body and mind in various ways. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning that it doesn’t have any intoxicating or euphoric effects. Instead, CBD enthusiasts report feeling slightly more relaxed and at ease.
Proponents say that CBD can help relieve pain, decrease stress and improve focus. Research says, well, not much. Still, if you’re interested in giving it a try, CBD gummies are an easy—and often delicious—way to dip your toe into the cannabidiol waters. Whether you’re having trouble sleeping, focusing or just chilling out, here are nine CBD gummies to try.

1. Charlotte’s Web CBD Gummies: Sleep (60 Count)
Best for Sleep
We’ve written about these gummies from Colorado-based Charlotte’s Web before. Though the brand’s calm and recovery varieties are great, the sleep option is just fabulous. The raspberry flavored is delicious and, even if you’ve had mixed feelings about melatonin in the past, something about Charlotte’s Web’s combination of melatonin and CBD will have you falling asleep faster than ever (with very few ultra-weird dreams). Eat two gummies 30 minutes before you want to fall asleep and it will feel like a gradual sense of calm washing over your body and lulling you to sleep.
2. Verma Farms Energy CBD Gummies (30 Count)
Best for Energy
If sleep isn’t much of an issue but feeling super-awake is, these 30mg-CBD gummies from Verma Farms are vegan, gluten-free, infused with high-quality caffeine and a lovely citrus flavor. Try these in lieu of your second espresso and skip the crash and burn.
3. Soul CBD Gummies (30 Count)
As you’ll continue to see, CBD gummies aren’t exactly cheap. Soul CBD’s gummies clock in at $40 for 30 gummies, a steal compared to many of the others on the market. Cost aside, each gummy contains 10 mg of calming CBD to calm everyday stressors or soothe lingering discomfort. We’re partial to the orange cream flavor, but they also come in strawberry, raspberry and coconut vanilla.
4. Lord Jones Blood Orange Hemp-Derived CBD Gumdrops (9 Count)
A splurge? Yes. Worth it? Oh yeah. This limited-edition flavor from cult favorite CBD brand Lord Jones is as chic as it comes. Inspired by sun-drenched California blood oranges, Lord Jones and The Standard Hotels came together for these tangy, sweet and citrus-zested gumdrops, each infused with 20mg of broad-spectrum hemp-derived CBD. They also make an incredible gift (we know from experience).
5. Miraflora Naturals +Immunity CBD Gummies (30 Count)
Best for Immunity
Immunity has been at the top of all of our minds lately, right? Why not give your immune system every boost you can, like with these gummies, which contain full-spectrum hemp flower oil combined with the powerful antioxidants elderberry, vitamin C and zinc in a great- tasting gummy to support a balanced and reactive immune system.
6. Penguin CBD Gummies (30 Count)
Nostalgia alert: These adorable gummy worms from Penguin remind us of sneaking candy behind our parents’ backs at every chance. Colorful, soft, and coated with a tangy blend of sweet and sour sugar, each container has 30 individual worms, with each one packing 10mg of CBD.
7. Sunday Scaries CBD Gummies (20 Count)
Best for Stress
Sunday Scaries are pretty much universal. Fight them off as best you can with these little gummy bears which, per the brand, help you accept your questionable weekend decisions, handle your micromanaging boss, deal with a crying baby on a plane and more. Each bottle contains 20 gummy bears with 10mg of broad-spectrum CBD per gummy plus the added benefits of vitamins B12 and D3.
8. Premium Jane Lime CBD Gummies – 1500mg CBD (40 Count)
Best Vegan Gummies
Sourced from some of the finest organic hemp plants in the country, Premium Jane’s lime-flavored gummy come loaded with 25mg of high-quality, broad-spectrum CBD each. If for whatever reason you’re not a lime person, these come in strawberry and original flavors as well.
9. Just CBD CBD Gummies 3000mg Jar – Party Pack
Best Flavor Variety
Featuring blue raspberry, lemon, orange, cherry, green apple, peach and watermelon flavors, this party pack has something for everyone—truly.
