Welcome to our PlusCBD Reserve Extra THC Gummies review!

Pulling a hard 180-degree turn from our Daily Balance Gummies review a few weeks ago—another PlusCBD product—these THC-loaded gummies are anything but balanced.

Each gummy comes packed with five milligrams of THC, and as usual, PlusCBD sticks to high standards of sourcing, manufacturing, and testing.

If you’re in need of serious potency, but without buying your product from a guy in a van, PlusCBD Reserve Extra THC Gummies are among the cleanest and most trusted high-THC hemp gummies we know of.

In this review, we’ll cover everything from the label to the hemp extraction method—onward!

PlusCBD Reserve Extra THC Gummies


Loaded with 25 milligrams of CBD and 5 milligrams of THC each, these gummies are highly potent.

They come with two milligrams of organic sugar each, and contain no artificial sweeteners, colors, or harsh preservatives.

Our team never had to take more than one gummy to feel an intense sense of relaxation and relief from discomfort.

Pros and Cons

Let’s start with the pros:

  • Clean, third-party tested product
  • Vegan, non-GMO, clean ingredients
  • High THC content provides discomfort relief, relaxation, and more

And now the cons

  • No secondary cannabinoids on lab report


PlusCBD Oil has been a strong advocate for higher manufacturing and sourcing standards in the hemp industry—talk that they walk in several ways. 

For example, they were the first company to receive self-affirmed GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status, an FDA-ready designation that is time-consuming and costly to attain.

All PlusCBD products come with QR codes linking to third-party lab reports, and their extracts are drawn from the hemp plant using CO2, the industry gold standard.

PlusCBD has historically offered full-spectrum as well as THC-free products, and the hemp is sourced from Holland.

Holland has very high safety and quality standards when it comes to agriculture, and PlusCBD uses non-GMO, EU-certified hemp seeds from this location.

In other words, PlusCBD models industry-leading practices when it comes to every major aspect of manufacturing, sourcing, and testing.

But that’s quite enough preamble—what’s up with these gummies?



We sampled the 30-count tub of PlusCBD Reserve Extra THC gummies, which come in Dragon Fruit flavor.

According to the label, each gummy contains a 5:1 ratio of CBD to THC, at 25 milligrams and 5 milligrams of each, respectively.

We cross-checked the third-party lab report, or certificate of analysis corresponding to our batch, to confirm. The results stated there were 26.74 milligrams of CBD and 5 milligrams of delta-9 THC per gummy.

The CBD is over-delivered, but not problematically so, and the THC is right on the money, so we’re pleased with the results.

However, the one exception is the lack of secondary cannabinoids. Of course, on raw potency, the THC is going to make up for it and then some, but if you are specifically looking for CBG, CBN, etc. to emphasize a particular benefit, you may have to look elsewhere.

On a more general note, 25 milligrams of CBD and 5 milligrams of THC per gummy is a solid concentration that places these gummies somewhere in the upper third as far as hemp concentration per gummy goes.


The 30-count container of PlusCBD Reserve Extra THC gummies costs $64.99 for one-time purchasers (subscribers save 25%), which reduces to a bit under $0.09 per milligram of CBD.

Considering we aren’t factoring the high THC content into this price comparison, we consider this to be in the lower half of the price spectrum for premium hemp gummies. 

Most premium gummies with far less or zero THC content cost between $0.08-0.11 per milligram, so $0.09 per milligram with this level of THC is a decent deal.

Granted, within the PlusCBD collection and outside of it, you can certainly find gummies that are closer to the $0.05 per milligram line, but it all centers on the THC content. 

If you aren’t looking for THC, there are better deals. If you are, this might just be a game changer for you on both value and quality fronts.


Save for obvious differences on the label, the packaging is the same as PlusCBD’s Daily Balance (THC-free) gummies.

Each darkly tinted container comes with a black, threaded lid with a “push down and turn” safety feature, as well as a QR code on the packaging to access the lab report.

The label also shares an informational blurb on PlusCBD, warnings, and the basic specs (cannabinoid concentration, ingredients, nutrition facts, etc.).

Functionally, we had no issues with the container or the lid; there was no wearing down of the lid or denting of the container throughout our use of the product.

On both labeling and packaging quality, PlusCBD remains consistent with that of other premium hemp brands we’ve reviewed.


Ingredients Check up

Here is the full ingredient list for PlusCBD Reserve Extra THC Gummies:

Cannabidiol (CBD) 25mg, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) 5mg, Organic Turbinado Sugar, Organic Tapioca Syrup, Purified Water, Citrus Pectin, Citric Acid, Hemp Extract (Aerial Plant Parts), Natural Flavors, Sodium Citrate, Lycopene (color), Malic Acid.

Each gummy contains two grams of added sugar, which is our cutoff for a reasonable concentration (many gummies have 3-4 grams each).

As you can see, there’s no high-fructose corn syrup, cheap or artificial sweeteners, preservatives, or coloring

Simply put, these are clean, not too sugary, free of GMOs, and loaded with cannabinoids—excellent ingredient quality for a gummy.


Admittedly, we aren’t dragon fruit connoisseurs, so we won’t comment too much on the authenticity of the flavor. In a general sense, however, these gummies are sweet, but not too sweet, and tasty.

Given the smaller gummy and the higher hemp concentration, we didn’t expect that earthy bitterness to be covered up very well, but were pleasantly surprised in the end.

It still isn’t fully concealed, but if you’re more of a sweet tooth who avoids bitter and earthy tastes, these gummies are more effective than most at covering it up.

The flavor is a bit unique—like real dragon fruit—so pickier eaters may have to go elsewhere. Otherwise, both the taste and texture of these gummies were on par with other high-quality hemp gummies we’ve reviewed.


We went from “I think I feel relaxed” to “Dude, where’s my car?” pretty darn quick with these gummies, which is usually what happens when non-marijuana users ingest more than 2-3 milligrams of THC at once.

Granted, we weren’t completely lost in the woods—there was no paranoia or confusion—but short-term memory definitely took a hit for a little while.

Fortunately, discomfort and stress were also dulled down considerably, as a wave of relaxation hit at the roughly 90-minute mark, persisting for at least two hours.

Having tried a lot of full-spectrum CBD gummies in our day, we’re not understating when we say these are first place when it comes to raw potency. All of the effects you expect from THC were front and center: intense relaxation, mild euphoria, and discomfort relief.

If you’ve never used THC before, one gummy may put you to sleep (depending on your size and other factors), so we recommend definitely starting with just one or even half. 

CBD takes its fair share of ribbing from cannabis users especially, who refer to it as a kind of watery placebo that doesn’t do anything, but these gummies are anything but watery.

Key Takeaways

Our Experience

PlusCBD Reserve Extra THC Gummies are highly potent, clean, and made under strict manufacturing and testing standards.

They’re a decent value for THC + CBD gummies, but you can find the same or higher CBD concentration for less. In other words, it’s only a great deal if you’re specifically looking for higher THC.

The sugar is kept to a reasonable 2 milligrams per gummy, and the taste is pleasantly sweet with a hint of bitter.

Finally, as far as the CBD world is concerned, these gummies are very strong. One gummy should be enough to produce intense relaxation, discomfort relief, and a bit of euphoria. We recommend first-timers especially to not use these before doing any intensive work tasks, driving, etc.

Overall, PlusCBD Reserve Extra THC gummies stick to the high standards PlusCBD has helped create, and we recommend them to everyone looking for serious potency.
