HEMP BOMBS REVIEW 2022
CBD consumption is fast becoming popular in a world where CBD is touted as therapeutic and can help with a range of health issues. Many brands are dealing in CBD items, and you may wonder which is which. Are you venturing into CBD? Read our 2022 review for Hemp Bombs, one of the renowned brands in the CBD space.
About the Company
Hemp Bombs boasts more than 5 years in the CBD arena, considering its launch in 2016. Compared with other CBD brands, it is neither too old nor too young but lies somewhere between. We had the opportunity to surf through the brand’s website but, unfortunately, did not find sufficient information about it. For instance, most CBD users would appreciate knowing who is behind a brand, the story behind its creation, or who makes up the team, but we could not find such details about Hemp Bombs.
Furthermore, we noticed some short about communication platforms for Hemp Bombs. While most brands provide an emailing address for reaching out to the brand or a live chat feature, our beloved Hemp Bombs lacked these. Instead, it offers a phone number through which a person calls the customer care desk product. Nonetheless, Hemp Bombs brands itself as a reputable CBD company that deals in high-quality organic products, as much as it does not have USDA’s certification for operating within the premises of organic practices. Nevertheless, its consumers trust it because it is registered with Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and its facilities are also cGMP-certified, showing that it tries its best to follow safe practices.
Moreover, Hemp Bombs offers extracts in isolates and broad-spectrum CBD. This means enjoying the entourage effects of the cannabinoids in hemp or dealing with isolated products. This is a plus for many, especially consumers who do not deal in THC products, but it cuts out THC lovers. Hemp Bombs products cost $14.99 to $750 for the 125 mg to 5000 mg CBD concentrations, revealing a price range of $0.05- $0.14 per mg CBD. However, its tropical items are slightly expensive, attracting a $0.20- $0.25 per mg CBD price range. The CBD concentrations for different products range from 4.17 mg/ml CBD to 166.67 mg/ml CBD, considering both novice and veteran CBD consumers.
Hemp Bombs deals in a wide assortment of items from edibles to topicals, for which it claims to conduct thorough third-party testing whose results are availed online. Besides, it places bar codes on the products that should be scanned to access lab results. Sadly, we tried scanning the bar codes for the items we ordered but could not get the results. Thankfully, the company sent them online, but we realized that the tests included pesticides, THC & CBD concentrations, bacteria, chemicals, and toxins but left out contaminants and residue.

Hemp Bombs starts its manufacturing process by breeding and growing hemp in American farms. It states that the hemp is organic, but we could not verify this due to the lack of USDA certification for organic practices, and we could not locate the actual farms. Once mature, the hemp is harvested and transported to Tampa, Florida, where the actual manufacturing occurs. The manufacturing facilities are FDA-registered and cGMP-certified, showing great commitment to safe practices. Besides, all the employees undergo in-depth training before starting their jobs at Tampa to ensure they fully understand how things work.
The raw ingredients undergo testing using a Near-Infrared Spectrophotometer to ensure quality, and further testing is done in-house and by third parties. The brand uses ethanol extraction to strip off CBD from hemp surface and manufacture its isolates and broad-spectrum CBD products, which then undergo thorough third-party testing. The tests are for quality control and confirm that the CBD and THC contents indicated on product containers match the actual contents. Besides, they check the products for pesticides, bacteria, toxins, and chemicals. While some tested for contaminants like mycotoxins and heavy metals, others did not.
Hemp Bombs states on its website that its third-party test results are available online, and that is true, but not to every extent. For instance, we scanned the bar codes on our ordered products but could not access the lab tests through that approach. We also explored the batch number lookup feature but could not find the results for every item. However, they posted the results through email when we reached out to them. It was clear that the CBD variances for most items are below 10%, which is the acceptable limit, but others, including the Dog Biscuit, had a 13% variance, which is slightly above the acceptable limit.

What We Do not Like About the Company
Despite the many perks associated with Hemp Bombs, the brand has a few kinks that need fast ironing for it to win an even larger customer base and win a competitive market advantage. Here are such factors;
- Although Hemp Bombs claims to be using organic products, it does not have a USDA certification for organic practices
- The company’s website does not reveal sufficient information about the brand, including who created the company or who makes up the team
- The products’ bar codes are unscannable and made it impossible for us to directly look up the third-party results for some of our orders
- Hemp Bombs’ third-party tests do not include contaminants and other items typically included in CBD products
- The brand’s CBD topicals are slightly above the market range and have a price range of $0.20 to $0.25 per mg CBD
- Customer care access is limited to phone calls; no live chat features or emailing address
- It does not offer CBD products that pack THC for its lovers
As part of our 2022 review for Hemp Bombs, we surfed through the brand’s website, ordered CBD products, and reached out to the customer care desk. We appreciated several aspects of the brand, including its third-party tests, FDA registration, cGMP certification, and wide range of items, potencies, and flavors. However, not every product had its lab results posted online, and some items had a CBD variance higher than the indicated. Should Hemp Bombs align these issues and provide sufficient information about the brand on its website, it will certainly reach new business milestones in the CBD space as 2022 ends.
