Molly Jones Signature Sampler CBD Gum Drops

“I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a stressful year. I’ve been relying heavily on these delicious CBD gumdrops from Molly Jones to get me through it. I love this sample set that has three yummy flavors Signature Berry, Lemon Lavender (my fav!) and Plum Cardamom. Handcrafted in small batches by a local chef to ensure quality and consistency, each CBD gumdrop provides a natural way to de-stress and is sure to help you ‘spread the chill’ this holiday season. The gumdrops feature broad-spectrum CBD sourced from organic, non-GMO sourced hemp grown in the U.S. Offered in both a low-dose version of 25mg and a high-dose version of 50mg. Any minimalist in your life will love the gift of chill!” – Samantha
