Welcome to our FAB CBD Gummies Review!
Easy on the sugar and loaded with functional ingredients (more so in the case of the Sleep Gummies), FAB CBD’s take on CBD gummies makes a strong case for quality.
The Sleep Gummies are broad-spectrum, and the Anytime Gummies are made with CBD isolate, which is an inclusive approach to customers who may be unable or unwilling to consume THC, but with the cost of losing out on some synergistic benefits.
We would have liked to see one higher concentration tier, but between the Sleep and Anytime Gummies, FAB covers a wide range of use cases.
Overall, the taste was excellent, the ingredient lists were cleaner than most hemp gummies, and our review team reported improvements in sleep and stress after taking these FAB CBD gummies—here’s everything else we learned.

Pros and Cons
Let’s start with the pros:
- Effective at reducing stress
- Lower sugar content than most (1g/gummy)
- Excellent taste
And now the cons:
- No full-spectrum extract available
- Less effective for physical discomfort
- CBD under-delivered via lab report
When gauging consistency of quality, back-end concepts like sourcing and manufacturing methods are just as important as end product taste and effectiveness.
For this reason, we take all of the above into account so that you can have a totally comprehensive understanding of the quality behind the reviewed product.
On that note, FAB CBD sources their hemp from Colorado farms that use USDA Organic methods.
In the case of their Sleep Gummies, FAB uses functional ingredients like Ashwagandha and GABA to enhance the potential benefits.
Though we like to see two hemp extract types represented in a single product category, the lack of a full-spectrum product is unfortunate.
Overall, FAB makes a decent showing for quality, both in the case of their gummies and the rest of their product catalog.
Each of FAB’s CBD gummies provides 750mg of CBD, though they arrive at this number using different denominations: 12.5mg x 60 for the Sleep Gummies and 25mg x 30 for the Anytime Gummies.
We normally would harp a bit on the lower CBD concentration for the Sleep Gummies, but considering they have melatonin, L-theanine, 5-HTP, and GABA, the CBD content doesn’t feel underwhelming in this case.
As for the true CBD concentration of the Anytime CBD Gummies, the certificate of analysis for our product batch reported 20.9mg of CBD per gummy.
It’s understandable to be a couple milligrams below or above the advertised concentration, but this particular case is a bit problematic considering more than 4 mg are missing.
Otherwise, the lab reports attested to a safe and potent product.
FAB CBD’s Anytime Gummies retail on the brand website for $59, which reduces to $0.08 per milligram of CBD, and the Sleep Gummies cost $89, or $0.12 per milligram.
CBD gummies tend to cost more than CBD oil (and significantly more than CBD capsules), generally ranging from $0.05-$0.15/mg, so we consider the Anytime Gummies to be competitively priced, but not at the highest value tier per se.
The premium attached to the Sleep Gummies is by no means unexpected, given the colorful selection of functional ingredients added in, but the more appropriate question may be if the premium is inflated or fair.
Considering the quality of the added ingredients, we see the Sleep Gummies as very similar in value to the Anytime Gummies—a competitive, but not quite rock-bottom price.
Overall, both iterations of FAB CBD gummies make a strong case for value.
Our FAB CBD Anytime Gummies arrived in a darkly tinted container that was housed in a small box.
Both the container and the matte white threaded lid that it came with held up throughout our use of the product.
Between the labels on the box and the inner container, we had ready access to basic product specs (flavor, concentration, etc.), use instructions, a lengthy list of “free statements” (e.g., peanut free, dairy free, etc.), a “Why FAB CBD?” blurb, and QR codes for viewing certificates of analysis from the third-party lab.
The packaging was both durable and informative, so it’s top marks to FAB CBD Gummies for packaging.
Here is the ingredient list for our FAB CBD Anytime Gummies:
Cannabidiol (CBD) from Hemp Extract (Aerial Plant Parts), Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Tapioca Syrup, Organic Grape Juice Concentrate, Pectin, Citric Acid, Ascorbic Acid, Colors Added (Black Carrot Juice Concentrate, Organic Turmeric, Organic Annatto), Natural Flavors.
Here is the ingredient list for FAB CBD Sleep Gummies:
Broad-Spectrum CBD Distillate, L-Theanine, 5-HTP, Melatonin, Ashwagandha, GABA, Sugar, Tapioca Syrup, Pectin, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Beet Juice.
In both cases, the amount of added sugar per gummy remains at or below 2 grams, which bodes well for the nutritional value (and beats most other gummies).
Moreover, the sweeteners are naturally derived and organic in most cases.
Flavor and Texture
Both of the FAB CBD gummies we tried were moderately chewy—not too soft, not too hard.
We were surprised by how fruity and sweet the Anytime Gummies were, considering they have just one milligram of sugar per gummy.
The taste was very enjoyable, lacking that artificial note that leaves a weird aftertaste.
As for how effectively the flavor masks the bitterness of the hemp, the Anytime Gummies were effective on the front end, but the aftertaste crept up soon after swallowing the gummy.
Overall, both the flavor and texture of FAB CBD gummies were befitting a top-tier CBD gummy.
These gummies produced noticeable benefits at reasonable concentrations (2-3 gummies per dose), but they were not as potent as some full-spectrum products we tried.
Roughly two hours after taking 2-3 Anytime Gummies, we felt a sense of calm that persisted for 2-3 hours after the fact.
However, we didn’t notice much in terms of relief from physical discomfort, whether from minor annoyances or more serious issues.
Overall, we would say these gummies are moderately effective, but taking into account the THC-free extracts, they present a solid option for those avoiding THC.
FAB CBD’s gummies offer refreshingly advanced formulations for a historically under-served crowd (broad-spectrum and CBD isolate people).
We are concerned to see the actual CBD content dip significantly below the label claim, but otherwise, the functional ingredients and minimal, naturally derived sugars bode well for quality.
Considering FAB CBD’s positive reputation, the pricing is fairly competitive.
Finally, these gummies were moderately effective for stress and sleep disturbances.
We recommend FAB CBD gummies to anyone looking for a safe, THC-free solution for promoting calm and relaxation.
