CBD + Turmeric? This is a dream pairing, and we can’t stop obsessing over these. If there was a gummy equivalent of a bubble bath, this would be it.
We love taking these after a workout, or even just when we wake up in the morning feeling a little stiff.
CBD and muscle recovery
One of the most studied and promising benefits of CBD is its antioxidant properties.1 CBD is like a wrench in the vicious circle of oxidative stress, helping your body fight free radicals. And there’s research to suggest that antioxidants like CBD improve recovery time in athletes.2
Plus CBD has positive effects on your mood, feelings of relaxation, and quality of sleep.
These gummies have 10 mg CBD per serving, a gentle yet substantial dose.
But that’s not all!
At this point we’re all familiar with this beautiful, delicious golden spice, and it’s potent anti-inflammatory support. The active molecules in turmeric are curcuminoids, which have been the subjects of some pretty fascinating research.3
These gummies have 50 mg of curcuminoids from turmeric per serving, which is a pretty generous dose.
They also contain ginger, which is another great anti-inflammatory support spice, and also lends a tasty kick!
Pure indulgence: take these at bedtime and pair it with your favorite melatonin gummy. Not only will you sleep like a babe, but melatonin is an extremely powerful antioxidant.
Anyway, the Recovery Gummies are totally delicious, but be warned, these are dank.
When you open the container, they have that familiar plant-based aroma we associate with the ganja. We actually had to triple check the label to make sure there was no THC.
Don’t be alarmed if THC is not your thing! There is none in here. The smell is just a by-product of Charlotte’s Web intensive, small-batch extraction process.
These do taste a little earthy, though much less dank than most of the other Charlotte’s Web gummies. Because these are loaded up with ginger and turmeric, the overall effect is subtly spicy & herbal. We love the taste, although not everyone out there does.
Also, Charlotte’s Web manages to make the most satisfyingly chewy vegan gummies: there’s no gelatin, the gummy base is pectin and tapioca syrup.
We can’t get enough of Charlotte’s Web. They have quickly become one of our favorite CBD gummy brands, because of the high quality ingredients they use (some of the highest quality whole-hemp products on the market).
They also provide certificates of analysis for every batch, to ensure that all of their ingredients passed the most rigorous safety, quality and consistency standards, including testing for glyphosate.
And their Recovery Gummies are, honestly, one of the best offerings in the CBD gummy cosmos.
