Green Roads CBD Review: Summary
Green Roads is a Florida based CBD company that started in 2013 when pharmacist Laura Fuentes decided to take a leap of faith and dive head first into the (then) budding CBD industry.
With 25 years experience working as a pharmacist, Fuentes’ primary commitment is to help people live healthy and happy lives by providing them with clean, high-quality CBD products that can be trusted by people from all walks of life.
Stepping CBD up a notch
Built on a foundation of transparency, honesty, wellbeing and family values, Green Roads pushes for stricter requirements and more transparency throughout the CBD industry. They want the end consumers to trust that what they are consuming is safe and effective.
Unlike many CBD bands on the market, Green Roads sources and formulates their own versions of each CBD product in their lineup.
Yes — it may sound strange, but 9 out of 10 CBD brands you see in stores, actually sell ready-made CBD products that they simply white label by putting their label on the packaging. This may be obvious to some and mind-blowing to others, but we like to take the time to appreciate a brand that actually formulates, produces and improves their own unique blends.

The gummies are soft, chewy and absolutely delicious — Green Roads’ Relax Bears offers quick relief from stress and anxiety in a convenient format and at a reasonable price.
Each CBD relax bear contains 10MG of high quality, lab tested CBD isolate (zero THC and zero additional cannabinoids apart from CBD). They arrived in the standard (for Green Roads) green cardboard box where the entire order was kept safe during shipping.
Best tasting CBD gummies of 2024
Unlike the Sleepy Z’s, the Relax Bears don’t contain any melatonin or other compound that makes you drowsy or sleepy. Though “Relax Bears” is a good name, they could just as well be called “Focus Bears” or “Declutter Bears” because the overall effect is one of focus, clarity, awareness and mental peace.
The CBD percentage is not very high so you can easily take 2 gummies per day whenever you feel like you need a mental break. Just don’t take too many because you may hit your CBD threshold and start to get really sleepy.
The Relax Gummies come in a screw-on/screw-off container of 30 units with 5 assorted flavors.
Flavors: Blue Raspberry, Lemon, Green Apple, Cherry & Orange
Best Used For
- High Stress Work Environments
- Focus Sports (Golf, Gaming, Martial Arts)
- People With Stress or Anxiety
The main difference between the Sleepy Z and the Relax Bears is that the Sleepy Z’s have higher CBD potency and melatonin. These two differences are what makes the Sleepy Z a sleep gummy and not a “chill out” gummy.
With hundreds of 5-star reviews, the Sleepy Z’s are perhaps the most popular CBD sleep gummies you can find. Slightly more expensive than other brands, Sleepy Z’s are just shy of $5 per gummy. However, what is lacks in price, it more than makes up for in effect.
If you have problems falling or staying asleep, the Sleepy Z’s are an excellent choice for battling the insomnia.
Expensive but effective
The Sleepy Z’s are a one-off, simple insomnia solution for anyone who has difficulties falling asleep or staying asleep at night. Take one Sleepy Z 30minutes before going to bed and you’ll be surprised who quickly you fall asleep.
They are made with their broad spectrum CBD oil meaning you get benefits from all the cannabinoids in the hemp plant, minus the THC.
The only downfall is that the price is a bit over-the-top in our opinion. Then again, if you have sleep problems this may be your best or only alternative to tossing and turning at night.
Best Used For
- People with insomnia / sleep problems
- People with late night jobs
** DISCONTINUED PRODUCT **
Another delicious CBD gummy from Green Roads. This one is unique not only because of its shape (literally a frog shape) but because it’s so much larger in size than other gummies on the market.
We tried the Green Roads 100mg Sour Froggies, but they come in a variety of concentrations and flavors, including regular and sour-coated versions as well as 25mg and 50mg potencies.
If you are looking for a large dose of CBD without the need for slamming back multiple gummies, the CBD Froggies from Green Roads are a great alternative.
A great treat for anyone who has a large sweet-tooth and enjoys regular gummy bears. The Froggies come in packs of 2 and 4 units each.
Perfect if you need a lot of CBD
The effects are fairly quick acting (around 30 minutes) and last a longer time than most other gummies. Depending on the potency (25mg or 50mg) you may feel stronger or lighter relaxing and “couch-locky” effects.
Ideal for anyone who has been using CBD for a while and want to try something different.
In our opinion, these are a bit too large for anyone who isn’t a sugar craving candy monster but the effects are undeniably great!
Best Used For
- People with high levels of pain
- If you need long lasting effect
- Anyone who needs a high dose of CBD
Green Roads CBD Oil Review
The Mighty Full Spectrum CBD oil from Green Roads is a powerful CBD tincture with 1500MG of CBD per 30ML bottle. That stacks up to 50MG per ML.
Although Green Roads has a variety of different potencies (mild – 300mg, moderate – 750mg, and mighty – 1500mg), CBD types (broad and full-spectrum), and flavors (apple kiwi, mint breeze), we believe that the naturally-flavored, full spectrum 1500MG tincture is the best option for most people.
- The high CBD potency brings the price per MG of CBD down to a more affordable price point and allows you to get more CBD with less effort.
- Full Spectrum tinctures take advantage of much more of the benefits in the hemp plant than just the CBD. It also contains all the other, naturally occurring cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN and THC (less than .3% THC is the legal limit)
- The flavor of CBD tinctures is up to each person but the higher potency CBD oils tend to be more difficult to “flavor-over” resulting in sweet and sickly oil droppers.
Best dosing tool in the industry
Perhaps the most exciting part of the CBD oils is that they all come with a special measuring tool that looks kind of like a plastic syringe. It’s marked out with different dosages so you can make sure to get the exact dosage that you aim to every time, without any guesswork.
Why is that so exciting..? A large part of a healthy CBD routine is in testing and consistency. By knowing exactly how much you are taking, when you are taking it and what you are taking (lab results), you can accurately establish your own perfect dosage.
Best Used For
- People who want to have exact control over their CBD intake
- For home use
- For people who need to figure out their best CBD amount
- For people who need quicker relief
A must-have in every sports bag!
The Muscle & Joint CBD Roll-on from Green Roads is an effective product for relieving pain in sore muscles and joints.
A lot of people wonder whether hot or cold is better for their particular pain but the truth is that topicals don’t actually effect with “real” heat and cooling. What you are feeling is simply a sensation on the skin of (in this case) the warming cayenne pepper that soothes the area and increases healing blood flow.
Green Roads also make a roll-on with peppermint to offer cooling effects, which has recently been rebranded as their Arthritis Pain Relief Roll-On. Whether you prefer the heating or colling action, both of these roll-ons contain rosemary, avocado oil, bentonite clay and a relatively high CBD concentration, which makes for a potent muscle and joint healing topical.
I keep it in my exercise bag
I use Green Roads heat relief roll-on my injured and sore calf muscles before running and on my hands before and after boxing practice.
The sensation on the skin is fairly instant and quite strong without being uncomfortable. I also love the cooling version of this roll-on as it has a nice peppermint scent and the calming avocado oil is great for keeping the skin moisturized. I definitely feel a difference in pain levels after using either roller.
Best Used For
- People with stiff or sore muscles and joints
- People with static jobs
Premium Colombian coffee mixed with premium American hemp…
Medium roast CBD coffee
Green Roads CBD Coffee is a smooth medium roast with hints of nuts and caramel. The CBD concentration varies depending on each bath but it feels like it’s in the 10-15MG per serving which is enough to take the edge off the jitters that the caffeine can create.
Best Used For
- People who drink too much coffee and get the jitters
- Times when you have an important task in the morning
Green Roads’ high quality CBD oil is also formulated for pets. It also comes with the same legendary drops dispenser that makes dosing so much easier – why can’t all brands convert to droppers like these?!
Calm animals during fireworks
When my friend tried these drops on her dog Macy, she was over the moon with them. She said they’re a fantastic alternative to doggy valium as they appear to offer her a similar sense of calm, but without “doping her up as much”.
She also said that Macy seemed to move around with more ease and comfort, so has started giving her a small daily dose for mobility too.
Best Used For
- Anxiety & Stress (especially during storms and fireworks)
- Mobility and joints
Green Roads: Final Thoughts
Green Roads is one of a handful of trendsetters in the CBD industry. Their dedication to quality, safety, transparency and wellness is apparent in everything they do.
All their products use hemp grown on US soil and are lab tested in the best facilities available.
As if that wasn’t enough, Green Roads also offers great educational resources in their CBD University where they educate about all the ins and outs of CBD.
They have a wide range of products that benefit the vast majority of people. The only thing that we found missing in the product line are high-concentration tinctures (over 3,000MG).
The buying process is smooth with quick shipping. Standard shipping is a bit more expensive than other brands but if you push your order value to over $50 (most orders are over that amount), you get free shipping included. However, UK shoppers need to look elsewhere for CBD tinctures as Green Roads don’t deliver to Europe.
