About the product

Big Sky Botanicals claims these are broad spectrum gummies, which should contain CBD, other cannabinoids, but zero THC.

Our lab tests found just CBD. I wouldn't call this broad spectrum because we did not find other cannabinoids. However, it's typical for low doses of broad spectrum CBD not to show other cannabinoids and testing gummies is not as accurate as oils. 

The independent labs found that Big Sky Botanicals contained slightly more CBD than suggested by their label, which is excellent for gummies. 

Jeremy's Disclaimer: edibles often have inconsistent lab results. Manufacturers often have varying amounts of cannabinoids in each gummy, and gummies usually come in slightly different sizes. However, edibles are also more challenging for my labs to test than oil because of various factors (weight, ingredients, testing methodologies, etc.). For example, chocolate has been known to change THC testing accuracy and there are tons of ingredients in edibles that may or may not do the same. My opinion is that gummies are for fun and not for precise dosing of CBD or other cannabinoids.

Jeremy's Take

Big Sky Botanicals is out of Whitefish, Montana. I also tested their oil and wasn't a fan of the taste. These gummies taste worse than the oil. 

Cost

The cost of these gummies is 10 cents per milligram of CBD, which is ok.

Taste

These gummies taste bitter, sharp, acidic, and strange. I can't eat them. I may have gotten a bad batch because I didn't find them edible. It tastes like chemicals. This is my subjective opinion and you should take it with a grain of salt.  

Strength

10 milligrams of CBD is a low dose. They claimed "broad spectrum," but we didn't find any other cannabinoids. However, broad spectrums typically come with low amounts of other cannabinoids and testing gummies is less accurate than oil. It could have trace amounts of cannabinoids that the labs didn't pick up on.

The label lacks info. They don't specify how much CBD each gummy contains on the serving size. 

* It's common to see CBD doses at 5 mg, 15 mg, 25 mg, and 50 mg for consumer products. Researchers use much larger doses (25 mg to 1500 mg of CBD). CBD dosing is highly individualized. 

Look

The plastic jar looks and feels cheap.

Overall Thoughts

I can't give this a fair review because the taste was awful. I think there may be something wrong with the batch I got because it did not taste edible.
