CBD Gummies are the most accessible and fun way to get acquainted with CBD. Oils/tinctures may have a superior delivery system via sublingual absorption, but it remains true that convenience wins over its competition here in the United States. 

CBD gummies are only increasing in popularity thanks to their convenience and flavor. The many CBD gummies that offer targeted relief are even more satisfying to consumers. In this versus post, we are looking at two brands that provide CBD gummies that target stress levels and promote a sense of wellbeing and relaxation. These are otherwise known as Calm Gummies by Charlotte’s Web and yours truly, PureKana. 

Today, consumers need products to help them cope with a world inundated with stressors and overexposure to the goings-on of a very chaotic time in world history. Charlotte’s Web Gummies and PureKana Gummies are both very high-quality options for those of us seeking to decompress and briefly escape from the rat race. 

Below, we will compare these two high-quality brands and their approach to the calming nature of CBD and its accompanying cannabinoids. 

Product overview

Charlotte’s Web Calm Gummies

A botanical approach to CBD’s calming properties gives Charlotte’s Web’s Calm CBD gummies their unique identity. Infused with full-spectrum hemp extract at 10 mg a gummy and 75 mg of very relaxing lemon balm oil, you are getting a full, well-rounded effect from Charlotte’s Web Calm Gummies.

PureKana Keep Calm CBD Gummies

How They Stack Up 

CBD Oil Purity and Extract Type

Charlotte’s Web CBD Calm Gummies contain full-spectrum hemp extracts, including all beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes. 

PureKana Keep Calm CBD Gummies contain broad-spectrum CBD extract, including all beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes, without THC.  

Strength/Concentration

Charlotte’s Web CBD Calm Gummies contain 10 mg of aerial-parts hemp extract, with a minimum of 5 mg (10 mg per 2 gummy serving) occurring from natural phytocannabinoids. CBD dosage is not specified. 

PureKana Keep Calm CBD Gummies contain a hefty dose of 25 mg of CBD per gummy in broad-spectrum extract form.

Value

Charlotte’s Web CBD Calm Gummies come in 3 different sizes, at 30, 60, and 90 count, ranging from $29.99 to $56.99. This means you are paying anywhere from $1.26 to $2.00 per gummy serving.

PureKana Keep Calm CBD Gummies come in only one size, at 60 gummies for $89.99, making each 25 mg gummy come in around $1.49 each. 

Servings/Supply

Charlotte’s Web CBD Calm Gummies offer you quantities of 30, 60, and 90 gummies, and at two gummies per serving, you get anywhere from 15, 30, and 45-day supplies.

PureKana Keep Calm CBD Gummies come in one size only, at 60 gummies, giving you a 2 month supply (instructions say take up to 2 daily, but most users find that 25 mg of CBD is a sizeable amount)

Ingredient Quality

Charlotte’s Web CBD Calm Gummies contain natural and/or organic ingredients, free of unnatural preservatives and fillers. A hefty dose of lemon balm makes this ingredient profile unique to the CBD gummy marketplace. 

PureKana Keep Calm CBD Gummies are 100% vegan, with high-quality ingredients and zero synthetic fillers or preservatives. In addition, herbal extracts like ashwagandha and lavender add to the blissful, calming effects.  

Our Take

While gummies are nothing new to the supplement, herbal, and wellness market, CBD gummies are not always easy to create to satisfy the tongue’s flavor pallet and offer an effective dose of CBD and all its accompanying cannabinoids and terpenes. More problematic still are adding synergistic herbal remedies that can enhance the effects of CBD, which both Charlotte’s Web and PureKana have successfully managed to do.

The devil is in the details, however. While Charlotte’s Web is no stranger to dominating the CBD marketplace, PureKana’s commitment to higher dosing and hyper-clean ingredients has given Charlotte’s Web’s incarnation of CBD gummies a run for its money.

First, both Charlotte’s Web and PureKana have made good on their commitment to the healthiest and purest ingredients, and as such, there is no clear winner on this metric, as they have both succeeded equally. 

However, on strength and concentration, PureKana has managed to outperform Charlotte’s Web handily with its 25 mg broad-spectrum CBD dose in each gummy. It is not even a contest compared to just 10 mg of naturally occurring cannabinoids in Charlotte’s Web’s gummy with vague specificity of exact CBD dosage. 

The value maybe a draw, as both Charlotte’s Web and PureKana stick to the same price-per-gummy standard of anywhere between $1.00-$2.00.

Supply is where Charlottes Web gummies handily win with its 30, 60, and 90 count options, compared to a mere one 60 count option for PureKana. Though Charlotte’s Web falls short on dosing, the consumer will appreciate the economic benefit of having multiple options available. 

Lastly, the ingredient profile is a virtual draw, with Charlotte’s Web gummies adding a large dose of lemon balm, an effective, calming ingredient, while PureKana’s addition of lavender and ashwagandha act as helpful adaptogens in synergy with CBD.

Overall, we have to give this one to PureKana, as there are too many pros on PureKana’s side to be competitive. This is not to say that Charlotte’s Web’s approach is wrong (it is an ideal option for beginners). But because PureKana checked many of the most important boxes, we will give it to them this round.
