When you hear “CBD edibles,” what’s your first thought? We are willing to bet your mind immediately went to gummies. And we don’t blame you! Who doesn’t want a CBD gummy? But there’s a new CBD edible on the block that may rival them in terms of flavor and fun: CBD lollipops!
If you’re looking for a sugary, tasty, effective CBD edible, this might be the treat for you. But how do you even know what to look for? What defines a good CBD lollipop? We got you covered!
What are CBD Lollipops?
The easy answer: A lollipop infused with CBD!
CBD lollipops are an innovative new edible emerging in the CBD market. Edibles are one way to ingest CBD, which is becoming more and more popular because it’s a palatable way to enjoy it. You’ll feel the effects of edibles in as little as 30 minutes. It might not be as quick as other methods (like CBD oil and vaping), but for many people, it’s the most enjoyable option there is!
The majority of the edibles market belongs to gummies and chocolate. Even CBD honey sticks are becoming a well-known treat! But the CBD industry keeps on growing — and creating. CBD lollipops are sweet and long-lasting, making them the perfect edible for people looking for a tasty way to ingest CBD effectively.
What are the Benefits of Lollipops?
Lollipops may be sweet, sugary goodness, but that doesn’t mean they don’t come without some game-changing benefits. Lollipops can curb your cravings and maybe even prolong your life!
While CBD may be the main selling point, let’s not overlook some of the things lollipops bring to the table. Here’s something that may surprise you: candy consumers live longer than those that avoid sweets!
According to the Harvard School of Public Health, if you eat candy without overindulging, you might outlive candy naysayers. Just make sure to keep your candy intake to a minimum (once or twice a week).

A small dose of sugar (again, let’s keep it minimal) can also be beneficial to you in the short-term. Ever heard of a sugar rush? People who consume candy are more likely to feel productive right after. Suck on a CBD lollipop right before a meeting or when you feel like cleaning your house. You might feel more invigorated afterward!
Lollipops have also been known to help people suppress their appetites. While a lollipop should never replace a meal, you may notice that you cut down on snacking when you opt to lick a sucker instead of grabbing a bag of chips. Since you got the satisfaction of sweet, delicious, sugary goodness and pleased the oral fixation gods, you will often find that lollipops can replace unhealthy snacking habits.
What are the Benefits of CBD?
We’re sure you’re already convinced that CBD lollipops are totally worth trying, but we’re just getting started! While lollipops have some surprising benefits, CBD is where it’s at.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating phytocannabinoid that gives you some of the benefits of marijuana without getting high. That’s because it’s not THC!
Instead, CBD interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). Your ECS helps maintain your body’s overall well-being, keeping you balanced despite external conditions and changes. Maintaining that homeostasis is what keeps our body and mind healthy and feeling its best.
There are cannabinoid receptors in multiple areas of our body, meaning that CBD can provide various benefits. CB2 receptors are found in our central nervous system, digestive tract, and body tissue. CB1 receptors are located in the brain, including the hypothalamus, amygdala, and hippocampus.
CBD promotes the functionality of your ECS. When your ECS is healthy, you can experience a range of benefits such as:
- Relief of stress or other negative feelings
- Reduced swelling
- Less discomfort in joints and muscles
- Stable Appetite
- Quality Rest
What’s the Difference Between CBD Lollipops and Other Edibles?
All CBD edibles are tasty ways to ingest CBD. But beyond that, they are each quite different from one another. The differences really come down to the ingredients and how each edible is prepared. Several CBD edibles contain unhealthy ingredients:
- Artificial flavor
- Large amounts of sugar
- High fructose corn syrup

These gummy fruit snacks are infused with organic, full-spectrum CBD oil. Full-spectrum CBD includes all the plant’s natural cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. They also contain a very small amount of THC (less than 0.3%). Don’t worry, this is a negligible amount and cannot get you “high.” Instead, that minuscule amount of THC enhances CBD’s effects.
With full-spectrum CBD, You’ll experience the “entourage effect,” meaning each component works synergistically and enhances each other’s effectiveness. Each gummy is infused with 10mg, 25 mg, 50 mg, or 100 mg of full-spectrum CBD.
And here’s what our CBD gummies DON’T have:
- Artificial flavors and colors
- Artificial sweeteners
- Animal byproducts
- Corn syrup
Instead, our CBD gummies are vegan, cruelty-free, and flavored with natural fruit and vegetable extracts.
CBD Honey Sticks
Looking for something even healthier? We got you! Our CBD honey sticks only have two ingredients: organic Brazilian rainforest honey and full-spectrum CBD.
There’s 10mg of CBD per honey stick, and each pack comes with 10 sticks. That’s 100mg of CBD total. You also get the added bonus of honey, of course. Organic, all-natural honey benefits your digestive system, immunity, and provides antibacterial properties.
What to Look for When Searching for CBD Lollipops
When you’re looking for a quality CBD lollipop, there are a few things to keep in mind when conducting your search. The first thing is customer reviews. Always check out what customers are saying about the CBD lollipops, from their flavor and texture to their effectiveness.
You should also keep checking if the CBD lollipops are infused with full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, or CBD isolate. If you’re looking for the most therapeutic results CBD can offer, you’ll want to ensure the lollipops use full-spectrum CBD. That’s going to give you the added bonus of terpenes and flavonoids, all working harmoniously together!
You should also look at the ingredients. We went over some stuff to avoid above (artificial ingredients, excessive sugar), but basically, your top choices should be the healthier options. Think vegan, natural, and cruelty-free. Of course, lollipops are an indulgent snack and you shouldn’t feel bad for craving a bit of sugar here and there!
Are CBD Lollipops Legal?
In 2018, the Farm Bill made hemp legal in all 50 states! Hemp is any cannabis plant that contains 0.3% THC or less. Simply put, CBD is legal throughout the country. By extension, that means CBD lollipops are legal to purchase anywhere in the United States.
How Old Do I Have to Be to Buy CBD Lollipops?
Even though CBD is legal, in most states you still have to be 18 years old to purchase CBD products, including CBD lollipops. Since they have such fun flavors and are based on a childhood favorite, it can sometimes get a bit confusing.
But CBD lollipops are not made for children to consume, especially without a parent’s permission.
