The CBD market is growing at an unprecedented rate. What was once a niche food supplement is now becoming a household name, with bottles of CBD popping up everywhere.
With this explosion in the market, it can be hard to choose a brand you should buy from. Many people are aware that the CBD industry is not regulated in the UK, and that makes consumers wary that they are buying from a scam brand. Thankfully, most companies these days are legitimate and safe.
Nevertheless, you should be reading reviews of brands before you buy from them, just to be safe. The team here at Greenshoppers is dedicated to bringing you honest reviews on all the CBD brands you could possibly think of. Today, we are looking at the American company Hemp Bombs. This brand does not ship to the UK, but we will take a look at their products anyway.
Who is Hemp Bombs?
Based in Florida, the Hemp Bombs company has its headquarters in Tampa Bay. Hemp Bombs is fairly unique in that it runs a vertical operation, meaning that everything in the manufacturing process is done in-house. This does not include, however, growing the hemp; this is done by a third party located in Europe. This ensures that all hemp is grown under strict European regulations, which is a good sign.
Hemp Bombs then filters, produces, and bottles the CBD oils right there on site. The products are subject to regular third-party lab testing, with results published on the website for all to see. This kind of transparency is important in the CBD world.
Unlike many companies, Hemp Bombs prefers to stick to CBD isolates. This guarantees that no THC will be found in the products, making them legal for sale in all 50 states, plus a few other countries around the world. We are a bit disappointed that they cannot sell their high-quality products to Great Britain, but we do understand that there are a lot of legal complications surrounding CBD.
Hemp Bombs has a good range of CBD products to try, so let’s check them out.
Hemp Bombs CBD Products
Hemp Bombs has clearly spent a lot of time and effort crafting its range of products. We are impressed at the sheer quantity and uniqueness (CBD beard oil?!) of these products, but sometimes companies lose out on quality by trying to cover too many areas. Has Hemp Bombs succumbed to this problem?
Hemp Bombs CBD Oil
The Hemp Bombs CBD oil range covers potencies ranging from 300mg to 4000mg per bottle. It comes in a few different flavours to cover everyone’s desires, and it comes in an easy-to-use dropper. The packaging is dark in colour in order to protect the CBD from degradation, and the label is pretty cool, too.
Hemp Bombs covers an extensive range of information on its site, explaining the ins and outs of CBD oil, how to take it, and what it will make you feel. For more information regarding these products, simply take a look at the paragraphs in the product description. According to this description, Hemp Bombs uses a mixture of hemp oil, grape seed oil, and MCT oil as the carrier oil for the CBD. We have never heard of this before, but consumers seem to like it!
Each strength of oil is available in either Peppermint or Watermelon flavour. According to users, the taste is pleasant, but not overbearing; enough to mask the bitter taste of CBD. Each oil comes in a 30ml bottle, in the following strengths:
- 300mg: $49.99
- 600mg: $74.99
- 1000mg: $99.99
- 2000mg: $169.99
- 4000mg: $299.99
These prices are, unfortunately, quite expensive for CBD oil. Of course, they are a high quality, but you can definitely find high-quality oils for cheaper.
Hemp Bombs CBD Shots & Syrups
CBD shots are not something we have really seen before, but we like it. The Hemp Bombs Max Chill CBD Shot is said to be designed for people on the go. The shot is a drink that you can consume in a hurry, containing a range of healthy botanical ingredients to give you a health boost fast. You can also mix the shot with another drink.
Other ingredients include White Willow Bark and Passiflora, on top of 75mg of pure CBD. The shot contains 2 fluid ounces of liquid, which you can take as one serving or split into two doses – make sure you shake it first!
The CBD Max Chill Shot costs $14.99, or $59.99 for a 5-pack.
Hemp Bombs also sell a CBD Relaxation Syrup, designed to help you with sleep. The syrup works well as a mixer that you can add to sweeten up any drink. One bottle of syrup (4 fluid ounces) contains a larger quantity of CBD that can easily be broken up into separate servings. We know that the syrup is flavoured, but unfortunately Hemp Bombs do not mention the flavour on the website.
- 100mg CBD Relaxation Syrup: $19.99
- 300mg CBD Relaxation Syrup: $49.99
- 1000mg CBD Relaxation Syrup: $99.99
At $0.09 per milligram of CBD, the 1000mg option is actually pretty good value for money.
Hemp Bombs CBD Edibles
Hemp Bombs is quite well known for its options regarding edible sweets. There is an extensive range of CBD gummy bears to try out, with gummies being a popular option in the CBD industry.
The Original CBD Gummies come in an assortment of fruit flavours, of course containing CBD isolate. Each bear contains 15 mg of CBD, with a range of packets containing a different amount of gummy bears.
- Original 5-Count CBD Gummies: $14.99
- Original 15-Count CBD Gummies: $34.99
- Original 30-Count CBD Gummies: $59.99
- Original 60-Count CBD Gummies: $99.99
Then there are the High-Potency Gummies, which are more concentrated than the Original Gummies. These bears contain 25mg of CBD isolate each , but are otherwise identical to the other gummies.
- 5-Count CBD Gummies – High Potency: $19.99
- 30-Count CBD Gummies – High Potency: $79.99
- 60-Count CBD Gummies – High Potency: $139.99
Finally (in terms of the gummies at least), there are the Sleep Gummies. On top of a 15mg dose of CBD in each bear, these gummies also contain 5mg of melatonin per gummy. This is designed to help you drift off and get a good night’s sleep:
- 5-Count CBD Sleep Gummies: $14.99
- 30-Count CBD Sleep Gummies: $59.99
- 60-Count CBD Sleep Gummies: $99.99
Aside from gummies, Hemp Bombs is also well-known for its CBD lollipops, called Jolly Bombs. These CBD lollies come in Cherry, Green Apple, Pink Lemonade and Watermelon flavours. The delicious lollies are completely vegan. Each lollipop contains 40mg of CBD per lollipop. We like the idea of using lollipops because they are sort of midway between an edible and a sublingual oil.
When you buy the Jolly Bombs, you are given the option to choose which flavours you want. You can buy either 2 or 4.
- CBD Lollipops – Jolly Bombs 2-pack: $14.99
- CBD Lollipops – Jolly Bombs 4-pack: $24.99
Hemp Bombs CBD Capsules
Capsules are a pretty common product nowadays, so we knew that Hemp Bombs were sure to have some in stock. The capsules are once again made from CBD isolate, and contain 15mg of CBD per capsule.
- CBD Capsules 5-Count: $14.99
- CBD Capsules 15-Count: $34.99
- CBD Capsules 30-Count: $59.99
- CBD Capsules 60-Count: $99.99
Hemp Bombs also offers the 60-count bottle in a higher potency, containing 25mg of CBD per capsule. This is more expensive, at $139.99.

The After Hours gel is very highly reviewed by customers, and really that’s all there is that needs to be said! The 2oz bottle contains 100mg of CBD in total. Bear in mind that it is water-based, so it is safe to use with condoms.

Hemp Bombs Pros
- You can get 10% off by signing up to the newsletter.
- The products are all of a high quality and are guaranteed to contain no THC.
- There is a huge range of products to choose from, including some unique products that we haven’t seen before.
- Some of the potencies are extremely high. While this isn’t perfect for everyone, there are those who prefer stronger flavours that are harder to come by.
Hemp Bombs Cons
- We had some problems using the website – clicking certain buttons led to the wrong page, which we found quite frustrating.
- The products only contain CBD isolate. It is often said that full-spectrum products are more effective, so some will see this as a downside.
- Some of the products, particularly the oils, are incredibly expensive. The oils can cost $0.16 per milligram, which is more expensive than a lot of other brands.
Final Thoughts on Hemp Bombs
All in all, Hemp Bombs is a pretty good brand. It offers a huge product range but still manages to maintain quality, and we have to applaud them for that. Furthermore, many of the products are unique to Hemp Bombs, such as the beard oil.
The downsides include the price of the sublingual oils. They are pushed out of many people’s price range, which is unfortunate. We are also disappointed that this brand doesn’t ship to the United Kingdom, but we do understand why this is an issue for some companies.
Overall, if you have time to properly browse all the products on the Hemp Bombs website, then we recommend giving this brand a look for yourself.
