We purchased this CBD product and tested it at independent testing facilities to measure levels of CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids and compare the results to the manufacturer's claims. Here are the results. (Learn more about our review process.)
The unadulterated test results on this page come directly from these certificates of analysis from two independent labs, which we pay directly. These are two independent lab tests of one product, at one point in time. We do not guarantee that all products or labs will produce the same results. Lab results may differ based on the different methodologies of testing used by each lab or inconsistencies in the product. Added ingredients may affect lab results. Volume of creams and edibles may change due to factors such as temperature, and this may impact lab results. Learn more about our review process.
Charlotte's Web claims to have 10 mg of cannabinoids per 2-gummy serving (8g). Based on the results from Lab A, we found that each serving contains a total of about 12 mg of cannabinoids, including 10.4 mg of CBD and 0.4 mg of THC.
*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.
Suggested Use: Adults: Take two gummies once per day.
Charlotte's Web claims this is a full spectrum product. Lab A confirmed that it is a full spectrum hemp product that contains CBD, CBC, THC, CBDa, CBG, CBDV, and CBN. However, Lab B only detected CBD and a small amount of CBC that was below their LOQ (Limit of Quantitation).
The independent labs found that these Charlotte's Web gummies contained 19% to 23% more cannabinoids than suggested by their label.
* The packaging does not state the net weight of the package (in grams) so we calculated it to measure the accuracy of their CBD mg claims. The total weight of the gummies in this package was 240 g, which we calculated by taking the average weight per serving stated on the package (8g per serving) and multiplying that by the total servings in the package (30).
These Charlotte's Web gummies are made with beet sugar and have a natural ginger flavor with a subtle turmeric taste. If you don't like turmeric or naturally flavored candy, don't buy this. I like it. I like it a lot. Ginger also has anti-nausea and anti-migraine properties.
What I don't like is their label. It states 60 gummies and 10mg, so I thought this would have 600 mg of cannabinoids. However, the serving size info only adds up to 300 mg because you need two gummies for every serving. It should say the total milligrams of CBD on the front.
The cannabinoids in these gummies add up. The serving size is two gummies or 8 grams, which according to Lab A contain 12 mg of total cannabinoids, including 10.4 mg of CBD and 0.4 mg of THC. Plus 0.7 mg of CBC, and 0.12 mg of CBG. So it adds up to a nice full spectrum. It's comparable to one of their low-strength oils. Charlotte's Web did an excellent job with this and you shouldn't expect to find this many additional cannabinoids in other gummies.
Our labs found about 20 percent more CBD than the label suggests, which is typical of Charlotte’s Web. They run hot. I’ve tested many of their other products and they come with a bit extra. 10 milligrams of CBD is a lowish dose and you should go for their more potent oils if this doesn't do it for you. The more potent oils are also a better deal per milligram, but that's expected when you buy gummies.
The average price of gummies is 13 cents per milligram of CBD and Charlotte's Web is a premium brand at a premium price of 14.4 cents.
I also tasted the raspberry sleep gummies and I love those. They taste great and have helped me fall asleep.
