KushyCBD started with KushyPunch and traditional THC-infused products back in 2014. Since then, KushyCBD was formed to harness all the industry-leading experience KushyPunch and apply it to the even larger CBD market.
According to its website, KushyCBD works to increase awareness and give back to the local community whenever it can. The company makes direct quarterly donations to the Wildlife Waystation - a private animal sanctuary north of Los Angeles. Additionally, the KushyCBD team has worked with the Los Angeles Food Bank to host food drives all under their KushyCares program.
KushyCBD sent me peach CBD Gummies and CBD Oil Tincture to test and review. Both arrived in their uniform pink and white labeling. Besides those two types of products, they also feature CBD topicals, CBD oil vape juices, CBD capsules, and even pre-filled vape cartridges.
All KushyCBD products start with the highest quality, organic ingredients just as KushyPunch did in 2014. These high-quality inputs are then processed by KushyCBD’s state of the art production facilities and turned into products for end users like me and you that are certified Peanut Free and GMO-Free. It’s no wonder that KushyCBD is able to achieve consistency in their product taste and dosage.
Another key differentiator is that KushyCBD uses full spectrum CBD oil and high-quality CBD oil. This results in the same 0mg THC CBD products but with more ancillary cannabinoids and terpenes.
One other thing that separates KushyCBD from other CBD providers is that KushyCBD tinctures and topicals feature medium chain triglyceride (MCT) Oil as well as cannabidiol isolate. MCT oil is a synthetic oil that is processed from a combination of coconut and palm oil to remove long-chain triglycerides (LCT) - the resulting oil is easier absorbed by the body.
KushyCBD Peach CBD gummies come in a 10 pack tray instead of a small bag. I actually prefer this because the gummies do not end up mashed on top of one another. More importantly, there’s no risk that the gummies will melt together if left in the car. In my experience, at least, that’s a very real way to lose the ability to do individual 10 or 15mg CBD gummy doses.
I opened the gummies’ packaging from the left side and ate a single 10mg peach CBD gummy. I was blown away. These were really, really high-quality gummies and their taste was delicious. Luckily, for all the THC users KushyPunch the sister brand of KushyCBD also offers THC infused gummies.
Having spent some time outside of the United States and changing my diet to cut out most sources of high fructose corn syrup while I am in the States, I’ve noticed it’s easy to differentiate between corn syrup sweetened candies and actual sugar-sweetened candies. I prefer the latter so much more. If you are someone who is looking for a healthier THC Gummies alternative KushyPunch has you covered with their Sugar-Free THC Gummies.
Now back to the KushyCBD Peach CBD gummies I reviewed, even though the 10mg doses are smaller than the 15mg dosage that many other CBD companies give; 10mg is still the recommended dosage for cannabis products in California - where KushyCBD is from. Even though I ate ⅔ the amount of CBD as I normally do when trying gummies, I still experienced a full calming CBD effect from the gummies. I attribute this to the MCT and the high-quality CBD isolate used in KushyCBD Gummies.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 5/5
The bottle of KushyCBD 450mg CBD Oil Tincture advised me to shake well and that any potential residue in the oil is completely natural and ingestible. After I shook the bottle, I removed the plastic seal and proceeded to administer a few drops from the dropper sublingually.
I really appreciate the terpenes that KushyCBD added into this CBD Oil Tincture. Upon first opening it, I noticed that the smell was floral and tropical and smells to me like some perfectly ripe subtropical fruit that I can’t remember the name of. The taste, to me at least, was largely informed by the smell and if I had to sum up the taste in a single word it would be: heavenly.
Within 15 minutes, I felt my general anxiety melt away, leaving me with a clearer focus for the rest of my workday. KushyCBD’s products are absolutely delicious tasting and provide a full spectrum CBD relief that is often missing from other products.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 5/5
These are the type of product that moves the needle for those that are on the fence - in both taste and effect. Ruben Cross, founder, and CEO of KushyPunch and KushyCBD told Slyng that he believes CBD products are a “trojan horse of sorts” and I can see them now being part of winning the War on the War on Drugs.
