I thoroughly review CBD products and may earn a commission if you shop through the links on this page. Learn more.

Florida’s Sunmed CBD offers a wide variety of CBD products, including difficult-to-find formulas like live resin gummies and weight loss products. They’re sold both online and through Sunmed’s “Your CBD Store” chain of franchise locations across the US. Sunmed’s products are sourced from organic hemp and tested by reputable third-party labs.

Bottom line: Sunmed is an innovative CBD company that’s a few steps shy of a leading brand.


  • Unique products and formulas
  • Some USDA-organic products
  • Full-spectrum and THC-free options
  • Comprehensive third-party testing
  • Many product types, flavors, and strengths
  • Available at many franchise stores


  • Some broad-spectrum products only seem to contain CBD
  • Website lacks customer reviews and details about the production process

Overall Rating: 4.2/5

Products 4.5/5
Sunmed has a wide variety of CBD products in multiple flavors, strengths, and formulations.
Price & Value 4/5
Sunmed’s prices are about average but some products like the weight loss line and Beyond gummies & tinctures offer better value.
Hemp Quality 4/5
The products are sourced from organic hemp grown in Colorado and Oregon. While this is a high-quality hemp source, I’d like to see more details.
Third-Party Testing 4.5/5
Sunmed provides up-to-date third-party test results, proving that its products are safe and accurate. But some broad-spectrum product tests only show CBD.
Customer Service & Reputation 4/5
Sunmed is not the biggest brand but it’s known for its franchise stores and seems to have solid customer service. My only complaint is that there are no customer reviews on its website.

Sunmed CBD Overview

Sunmed is a CBD brand based out of Tampa Bay, Florida. It was founded by Marcus and Rachael Quinn, who turned to CBD oil as an alternative treatment for Rachael’s Crohn’s disease.

The couple has mainly focused on selling CBD products in stores across the country. They opened their first “Your CBD Store” in Bradenton, Florida in 2018.

Since, then, Your CBD Store has opened hundreds of franchise locations across the United States, becoming the largest chain of brick-and-mortar CBD stores in the country. Additionally, Sunmed products can be bought online.

Sunmed sells CBD oils, gummies, capsules, pet products, and topicals derived from organic hemp grown in Colorado and Oregon. They’re tested by a reputable third-party lab.

Sunmed’s products have also won some awards. Its CBD tincture and CBD topical received excellence awards at the 2019 USA CBD Expo in Miami. Meanwhile, its peanut butter pet CBD tincture got 2nd in the best pet product category of the Hemp Cup, organized by the prominent cannabis magazine High Times.

CBD Terminology

  • Hemp: cannabis variety with high CBD and low THC levels (no more than 0.3%).
  • Terpenes: aromatic plant compounds with a wide variety of beneficial properties (1).
  • Minor cannabinoids: CBN, CBG, CBC, and other beneficial cannabinoids found in smaller amounts in hemp. They may work in synergy with CBD.
  • Full-spectrum: whole-plant hemp extract containing multiple cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. This form of CBD may be about 4 times more potent than pure CBD (2).
  • Broad-spectrum: whole-plant hemp extract similar to full-spectrum CBD, but with THC removed (may contain trace amounts).
  • CBD isolate: pure CBD with all other hemp compounds removed.

Sunmed CBD Product Lineup

Sunmed offers an impressive range of CBD products, including oils, capsules, gummies, topicals, beverage enhancers, pet, and even weight loss products.

CBD Oil Tinctures

Standard Tinctures


CBD Potency8-100 mg/ml
Volume30 ml 
Total CBD250-3000 mg
Cost per mg$0.06–0.17
TypeFull & broad-spectrum
Third-Party TestView report

You can choose from USDA-certified organic full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD oils in natural, blueberry, cinnamon, strawberry, mint, lemon, and orange flavors. There’s also a whole-plant tincture which is less processed and contains more flavonoids, terpenes, and chlorophyll.

Third-party tests show about 7-11% minor cannabinoids in the full-spectrum tinctures, which is a solid result.

There’s also a CBNplus tincture with higher-than-normal levels of CBN, a minor cannabinoid believed to help with sleep, and a cannabigerol (CBG) tincture for daytime use.

Sunmed even has water-soluble tinctures, which use liposomal technology to break down CBD oil into tiny particles for improved absorption and mixing in water.

Beyond Tinctures

sunmed beyond sativa tincture


CBD Potency~24-34 mg/ml
Volume60 ml 
Total Cannabinoids~1440-2040 mg
Cost per mg$0.03–0.04
Third-Party TestView report

Sunmed’s Beyond tinctures contain a full-spectrum blend of cannabinoids and terpenes inspired by relaxing indica and energizing sativa cannabis effects, with up to 400% more minor cannabinoids than regular full-spectrum CBD oil. Third-party tests show both terpenes and high minor cannabinoids, which is great.

But the cannabinoid levels are a bit confusing; I’d like Sunmed to state how much CBD and CBG you’re getting with these tinctures since third-party tests show much more than 450 mg of CBD.

CBD Capsules


CBD Potency25-33 mg/ml
Caspule Count30 
Total CBD750-1000 mg
Cost per mg$0.09–0.10
TypeFull & broad-spectrum
Third-Party TestView report

Sunmed offers full and broad-spectrum CBD capsules containing 25 mg of CBD with 30 per bottle. There’s also another full-spectrum version designed for boosting immunity with 33 mg of various cannabinoids (including CBDa and CBGa) capsule plus vitamin C, zinc, and the herb echinacea.

Third-party tests confirm that these capsules contain a full range of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes (about ~12% minor cannabinoids for the full-spectrum version, which is a great result).

CBD Edibles

CBD Gummies


CBD Potency8-100 mg/ml
Gummy Count5-30
Total CBD125-750 mg
Cost per mg$0.09–0.10
TypeFull & broad-spectrum
Third-Party TestView report

Sunmed makes two types of gummies: blueberry nighttime CBN gummies (full-spectrum) and mango daytime CBG gummies (broad-spectrum). Both are made with vegan ingredients and natural flavors.

It would be nice for the label or description to mention roughly how much CBD, CBG, CBN these gummies contain. The third-party tests showed about 19 mg CBD and 6 mg CBN for the nighttime ones and about 4 mg CBD and 22 mg CBG for the daytime gummies.

Beyond Gummies


CBD Potency8-100 mg/ml
Gummy Count30
Total CBD125-750 mg
Cost per mg$0.08
Third-Party TestView report

Like the tinctures, the Beyond gummies contain much higher levels of minor cannabinoids alongside curated terpene blends designed to imitate sativa, indica, and hybrid cannabis strains.

You can choose from six different flavors and formulas, including four kinds of gummies infused with unique cannabinoid ratios and live resin — a solventless, terpene-rich cannabis extract. But the terpenes are a bit low or not present on most third-party tests.

Beverage Enhancers

sunmed energy beverage enhancer


Potency10-25 mg/serving
Volume/Packets60 ml/10
Total Cannabinoids240-500 mg
Cost per mg$0.12–0.13
Third-Party TestView report

These water-soluble beverage enhancers are designed to be added to your drink of choice. They come in liquid hydrate and energy formulas (240 mg cannabinoids) as well as powdered mixes (25 mg per packet) with five flavors: coffee sweetener, orange mango, cucumber yuzu, immune plus, and nighttime.

Each formula contains specific vitamins, minerals, and other active ingredients. I like the idea behind these unique products; there aren’t that many decent CBD beverages on the market.

Trim by Sunmed


Potency50 mg/ml
Total cannabinoids1500 mg
Cost per mg$0.07
Third-Party TestView report

Trim is Sunmed’s line of CBD weight-loss products. They’re unique for combining CBD with tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), a minor cannabinoid that was shown to reduce food intake and cause weight loss in a 2009 mouse study (3). You can choose from a tincture, capsules, or gummies.

They also contain cannabidivarin (CDBV), another minor cannabinoid (but I haven’t found any research showing that it has effects on appetite or weight).

According to SunMed, a 90-day clinical study of Trim in 125 people showed:

  • Up to 18 lb weight loss (9 lb average)
  • Up to 6 inches in waistline reduction (3 inches average)
  • Up to an 8-point drop in BMI

These products sound interesting but I want to see the published study results. Sunmed also needs to list the precise amount of THCV and CBDV.

CBD Topicals

CBD Cream


CBD Potency8-100 mg/ml
Volume2-4 oz (57-113 g)
Total CBD500-2000 mg
Cost per mg$0.07–0.12
TypeFull & broad-spectrum
Third-Party TestView report

If you’re looking for a versatile CBD cream, Sunmed offers full and broad-spectrum versions (although I’m not sure why this is necessary, since topical products can’t penetrate deep enough into the skin for the THC to be an issue).

It contains standard skincare components like beeswax, as well as the pain-relieving ingredients peppermint, arnica, and MSM.

Other CBD Topicals


CBD Potency8-100 mg/ml
Volume2.5 oz (74 ml)
Total CBD200-500 mg
Cost per mg$0.12
Third-Party TestView report

Aside from its cream, Sunmed also has a 340 mg CBD roll-on infused with the topical anesthetic lidocaine, a 200 mg CBD bath soak in three scents, a 500 mg CBD spray with menthol, and 300 mg massage oil.

But the third-party tests only show CBD, which doesn’t match up with the descriptions saying these products contain broad-spectrum hemp extract.

CBD Bath Bombs


CBD Potency100 mg
Total CBD100 mg
Cost per mg CBD$0.15
Third-Party TestView report

Sunmed’s bath bombs are sold in single packages and come in five scents: Lavender, Lemongrass, Orange, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus.

Now, here’s a friendly heads up: bath bombs may not be the most effective way to experience the benefits of CBD because it doesn’t dissolve in water. But you’ll still get to enjoy all the benefits of the other ingredients.

CBD Skincare


CBD Potency0.5-5 mg/ml
Volume15-240 ml
Total CBD30-150 mg
Cost per mg$0.26-1.00
Product Types4
Third-Party TestView report

Sunmed also sells several products designed for skin care, including a nighttime serum, daytime moisturizer, lotion, and collagen cream. Frankly, the amount and concentration of CBD in these products is too low to offer much benefit. You may as well buy the regular version without CBD.

CBD Pet Products

Pet Tinctures


CBD Potency8-17 mg/ml
Volume30 ml 
Total CBD250-500 mg
Cost per mg$0.10–0.12
Third-Party TestView report

Just like other brands, Sunmed offers separate CBD products specifically designed for cats and dogs. These THC-free tinctures, certified organic by the USDA, come in strengths suitable for both pets. Your furry friend can choose from three delicious flavors — natural, peanut butter, and bacon.

Third-party tests show about 9% minor cannabinoids, a good result for a broad-spectrum CBD oil.

Pet Edibles


CBD Potency5-15 mg
Treat Countvaries 
Total CBD150-250 mg
Cost per mg$0.20
Third-Party TestView report

Meanwhile, Sunmed’s edible treats come in eight varieties, most containing 5 mg of CBD per piece:

  • Chillin’ out chews with chamomile, and passionflower for relaxation
  • Movin’ easy with green-lipped mussels for joint support
  • Bacon & cheese strips with 15 mg CBD
  • Fish-flavored cat snacks with 1 mg CBD
  • Bacon hearts
  • Peanut butter biscuits
  • Steak bites
  • Jerky sticks with 6 mg CBD

Price & Value

The easiest way to compare the prices of different CBD products to see if you’re getting a good deal is to divide the total cost by the amount of CBD. For example, if you have a 1500 mg CBD oil that costs $100, its price per mg would be 100/1500 = $0.07.

Sunmed’s CBD products have the following costs per mg of CBD:

  • CBD oil: 6-17 cents per mg
  • CBD capsules: 9-10 cents per mg
  • CBD gummies: 8-10 cents per mg
  • Beverage enhancers: 12-13 cents per mg
  • CBD topicals: 7-12 cents per mg
  • CBD skincare: 26-100 cents per mg
  • Pet products: 10-20 cents per mg

These prices are considered a bit cheaper or just about average for their respective categories but you’re getting above-average value for some of the less-common formulas like the weight loss products, beverage enhancers, and Beyond gummies & tinctures. There’s also free shipping when you spend over $50.

Hemp Source and Production Process

Sunmed’s products are derived from organic hemp cultivated in Colorado and Oregon, the country’s leading hemp farming states.

As for the extraction process, Sunmed uses carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the two main CBD extraction methods. It also claims to add a blend of terpenes after the extraction process.

Still, I’d like to see more details and Sunmed needs to be more transparent about this information on its website.

Third-Party Testing 

Sunmed’s CBD products are independently tested by Green Scientific Labs, a third-party cannabis lab based in Florida, as well as Kentucky’s KCA Labs, another highly reputable CBD testing lab.

This is important to note because it’s becoming increasingly apparent that not all cannabis testing labs have the same level of experience.

Sunmed CBD sends its products for potency and contaminant testing and posts all of the test certificates of analysis (CoAs) online in a searchable database.

Third-Party Test Results

I always look at third-party lab test results to confirm that CBD companies sell safe, accurate, and effective products. Specifically, I check for:

  • The levels of CBD, which should be within 10% of the label (4)
  • The levels of minor cannabinoids like CBG and CBC
  • The levels of THC
  • Whether the CBD type (full, broad-spectrum, or isolate) is accurate
  • Whether there are any contaminants

Third-party test results of Sunmed’s 1000 mg CBN tincture.

I took a look at many recent test certificate of analysis (CoA) documents for Sunmed’s products, finding that most of them were accurate.

For example, the above test of the CBN tincture shows 1091 mg of cannabinoids, which is only 9% higher than advertised, multiple cannabinoids, and no THC (a good result for a broad-spectrum product).

Only a few product CoAs showed significantly more or less CBD than stated on the label. I also like that most of the tests are recent. My only criticism is that a few products labeled to be broad-spectrum only contained CBD, which is a poor result.

Shipping & Returns

Sunmed CBD ships throughout the United States and offers free shipping on orders over $50.

The company has a standard 30-day return policy, with refunds/exchanges when returning an opened product within 30 days of purchase. The only exception to this is on-sale items.

Customer Service & Reputation

I emailed the company to learn more about their hemp source and the answer I got was quick and helpful.

But I couldn’t find any customer reviews posted on Sunmed’s website. That’s unfortunate since these reviews help us check the company’s customer service and product effectiveness.

Still, I did find some reviews written by real customers on Reddit, a social news-sharing website:

As we can see, the reviews are quite positive.

My Verdict: Innovative Brand a Few Tweaks Away From Top-Tier

Overall, Sunmed is a solid CBD company. It has a wide range of third-party tested CBD products at reasonable prices. With so many different potencies and product types, you won’t have trouble finding something that suits your needs.

In particular, I’m a fan of the innovative products and formulas that are difficult to find elsewhere, like the beverage enhancers, weight loss products, and live resin gummies.

Meanwhile, the third-party tests are done by reputable labs and confirm that the products are safe and mostly accurate.

Still, Sunmed has some areas to improve upon. Most notably, there are no customer product reviews on its website. I’d also like to see more info added about the hemp source and production process.

Overall Rating: 4.2/5

18 thoughts on “Honest Sunmed CBD Review: Pros & Cons (Feb. 2023)”

  1. I loved the product….the store in my area closed with COVID. Are there any near the 26062 area. ….I live close to Pittsburgh

  2. I have tried many of their products and rate their topical CBD cream A PLUS. Ditto for ABOVE and BEYOND Gummies. Their Delta 8 infused spray bottle is a quick and simple way to ingest on the go.

    • I agree with Mike. Love the topical CBD cream. It halts the neuropathy in my feet almost immediately. I also use ABOVE and BEYOND gummies and they are very helpful with pain and anxiety. We have a store near us that we go to and the staff is very knowledgeable.

  3. My dog wouldnt stop barking, she getting very old! I tried other cbd products, but they did not work. Decided to try this one, BINGO!!!!!!! It is the first time in months, she has calmed down and slept. And i truly mean that . I will never switch again

  4. water soluble is not a tinture. water soluble is just as it sounds you put it in a drink. it is good for those who do not have a gallbladder. our gallbladder is what processes fats and oils and without one cbd oil will not be processed correctly. water solubles are drank in your preferred drink and then therefore are processed in the stomach before going into the intestines. They are also good for digestion in that case. Just an FYI.

    • You’re right, you can absolutely add them to drinks. But they still contain oil like regular CBD tinctures. The only difference is that the CBD extract has been broken down into tiny molecules that make it disperse and mix better with water.

  5. looking to know if any of these particular products support anxiety/depression and concentration issues as an alternative to prescription medication? Where can I find information on CBD for these particular uses?

  6. I have been using Sunmed vape pen for restless leg syndrome, my doctor did not want to give me prescription meds since it happens sporadically. While I was in Florida I found a Your CBD Store and tried the calming vape pen and it has helped me immensely. I don’t have to use the OTC sublingual pills. I would recommend these products to anyone who wants to try CBD.

  7. Totally unsuckable. CBD oil pen I purchased was completely unusable. Bought it for a road trip, charged it and everything. Adjusted the wattage, still nothing. Had two other people try to get it to work, still unsuckable. Light came on pen but would not work at all. Unimpressed.

  8. Bought the Trim oil tincture, based on the recommendation of the store manager, but I can’t read the tiny font size (even w/ reading glasses) on the back to see the directions, so had to call the company to get them. I hope the company can enlarge the font size on the back of the box to prevent problems like wrong dosing, and to maybe increase sales.
