The market for CBD, or cannabidiol, is the biggest its ever been, with a loosening of restrictions on cannabis around the globe. In recent years, CBD, which is the second most prevalent active ingredient in cannabis after THC, has been incorporated into an enormous number of food and drinks, from seltzer to Turkish delights to honey. One of the most popular ways to ingest CBD is in the form of chewy candy gummies, with numerous delicious options on the market. Sold to alleviate a range of maladies, from anxiety to sleep troubles, CBD is the part of the cannabis plant that doesn't cause a high. (You can, however, purchase CBD gummies that include THC, which does cause a high, depending on the dose.)

As a lifelong anxiety-haver, I've had CBD recommended to me by numerous people who use it to calm down, sleep through the night, and/or relieve joint pain. So, to find the best option for me, I ordered an unimaginable amount of CBD gummies from top brands and tasted them all.

While my anxiety proved too powerful for the gummies, I enjoyed many of the offerings purely for the eating experience. (I also think they helped me sleep through the night!) Across the board, CBD gummies are getting more delicious, which is great news. We found the following gummies to be the best-tasting of the ones we tried.

Note: CBD is technically legal in all fifty states, with different restrictions in each state, based on factors like sourcing, THC level, and FDA approval. Despite the increasing legality of cannabis, thousands of people remain in jail for marijuana-related offenses and communities continue to suffer the consequences of punitive war on drugs policies.

Best Tasting CBD Gummies: Martha Stewart CBD

Leave it to Martha to develop CBD gummies with the most sumptuous natural flavors. At the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, the culinary legend told me she was personally involved in the flavor development process, with flavors ranging from huckleberry to Meyer lemon. Stewart drew inspiration from the classic French candy pâte de fruit, and when I tasted her CBD gummies, I was transported to a Parisian pâtisserie. The gummies I tried had 10 mg of CBD per candy, with the recommended dose being two to three.

Best CBD Gummies for Gifting: Lord Jones

Start to finish, the Lord Jones experience feels like an indulgence. The packaging is chic and luxe, and the CBD gummies themselves resemble colorful jewels. Lord Jones is one of the more recognizable brands in the CBD gummy space (they sell lovely CBD lotions, too), and it's clear why once you taste the flavorful and pleasingly chewy candies, which are larger than most on the market (and have 20 mg of hemp-derived CBD per piece.) In an ideal world, 75% of my holiday gifts this year would be boxes of Lord Jones gumdrops.

Best Extra-Strength CBD Gummies: Cornbread Hemp

Cornbread Hemp is a USDA-certified organic, "flower-only" CBD brand that derives its CBD exclusively from the flower part of the hemp plant, which is a rarity in the industry. These vegan, gluten-free gummies are among the most powerful on this list, with each gummy offering 50 mg of CBD and up to 2 mg of THC per serving. Both I and my colleague, senior editor Kat Kinsman, have made these extra-strength gummies part of our routine. Kinsman recommends the original, too: "I'm gonna tell you upfront that this has some THC in the mix, but if you're a cop, I actually have a state medical card, so just be cool, man. A few years of endometriosis, surgery for such, and recovery left me in fairly omnipresent pain, and a lifetime of anxiety sure didn't help with the muscle ease or sleep. I really like Cornbread's original formula organic hemp gummies with 10 mg of CBD to .5 mg THC to take the edge off, and because the fruit-forward, sugar-dusted edibles are actively delicious and don't taste of weed at all. But I want to marry the new 50 mg to 2 mg formula in a quiet ceremony in a fairy-light-decked barn and drift away on a hemp bale afterward. It's a beautiful body chill with no head high, and what's more—it's a product of my home state of Kentucky. Anything that trots the state's economy outta the tobacco zone and still keeps farmers ahead is a win in my book."

Best Chef-Developed CBD Gummies: Slutty Vegan

Atlanta-based burger joint Slutty Vegan just dropped its own line of CBD gummies, developed by chef Pinky Cole. At 10 mg of CBD a piece, the vegan gummies are made with organic ingredients and pectin instead of animal gelatin. The two debut flavors, Mango Margarita and Pina Colada, are super delicious, and the candies still have that satisfying chew, despite the absence of gelatin (not easy to achieve). "Once upon a time, using CBD and marijuana was considered taboo in America. I'm thrilled to be able to offer this unique product to people in our communities," said Cole in a statement.
