Flo Shots CBD Review



Today I will be reviewing a company who uses water-soluble hemp in an approach to increase bioavailability.

That company is Flo Shots. You may have heard of Flo Shots CBD and are wondering how well their CBD works, and if water-soluble hemp makes a difference.

I will go in-depth in this review to answer these questions and give my fair assessment of Flo Shots.

First, here is their company info:

Flo Shots infographic

Flo Shots uses hemp grown in Colorado in order to create full-spectrum CBD products (their CBD has 0% THC all though it is full spectrum). Colorado is one of the best places for growing hemp.

Their hemp is also extracted in Chicago in an FDA-registered facility, using the supercritical CO2 extraction method.


This is the most favorable extraction method, because no harmful solvents are introduced in the batch and it preserves most of the plant.

There’s third-party lab testing available to back up the claims, and ensure you that you are getting trustworthy CBD.

Flo Shots tries to distinguish themself by using water-soluble hemp–as mentioned above. Water-soluble hemp aims to rectify the problem of other hemp products which have lower bioavailability. This means that in some other products–especially most tinctures–most of the CBD gets lost in the digestive tract.


Water-soluble hemp increases bioavailability. This is achieved by reducing the size of the CBD particles, thus allowing the body to utilize most of the hemp.

This company seems to have everything in order, let’s see what products they offer.


Flo Shots products

Flo Shots are known for one product: their Flo Shot. Flo Shot comes in 4 unique flavors:

  1. Green Tea Lemongrass
  2. Spicy Citrus
  3. Mellow Berry
  4. Coconut Lemongrass

Ingredients: Pure Water, Water-Soluble Broad Spectrum Hemp, All Natural Flavor Concentrates (Gum Acacia, Natural Flavors), Stevia, Citric Acid.

They all come in 2 fl oz bottles, each containing 15mg of broad-spectrum hemp. Each bottle comes with an expiration date and they are sold in a pack of 4 for $29.99. This is a reasonable price for the amount of CBD and the number of bottles you are getting.

So here is my review of Flo Shots CBD:


Initial Impressions

Initially, I was pleased with the packaging. Each shot comes in a glass bottle, with simple but good looking artwork.

I am going to discuss the flavors next and talk about the effects in general for all of them afterwards, because they all have the same effects.


In general, the water that is used for all the flavors tastes crisp and refreshing. Initially, your mouth does tend to get a little bit dry but strangely a couple of minutes later the opposite happens.

Your mouth feels hydrated and refreshed. Each shot tastes similar to a spritzer, not to heavy on the flavor, but they are a tad sweet. They are sugar-free but do contain stevia.

Now I am going to discuss each flavor in depth in order of the last one being my favorite (this doesn’t mean I didn’t like the first one, I think all of the flavors were pretty good).


Flo Shots green tea lemongrass CBD

Initially, there is a very faint smell of lemongrass. When trying it, the lemongrass is definitely predominant in this flavor, but you do get a hint of the green tea taste. This flavor does leave behind a slightly bitter aftertaste.

I wish there was a little more green tea taste in this flavor, but ultimately it still tasted good and I would try it again.


Flo Shots Mellow Berry CBD

Upon opening this bottle, you are greeted with a sweet berry scent, smells primarily of raspberry.

When tasting it, it is very pleasant, it is light and flowery. No bitter aftertaste but you can taste the stevia.

The berry blend works well in this flavor and tastes great!


Flo Shots Coconut Lemongrass

This flavor has a very, very faint coconut smell to it. Nonetheless, the flavor is excellent.

It tastes very similar to a colada, very coconutty. The lemongrass is present in this one and is very refreshing. It is light and crisp, with no bitter aftertastes and is mildly sweet.


Flo Shots Spicy Citrus CBD

This flavor is very unique. Right away it smells just like fresh lemonade. When tasting it, it is definitely interesting, very lemony and not really spicy.

There’s a very faint spicy aftertaste and a mild pepper taste, which works well. And there is no bitter aftertaste with this one.

It is definitely a great flavor.

Now we get to the fun part of the Flo Shots review, the effects:


 Flo Shots CBD Review


I couldn’t have received these Flo Shots at a more perfect time. I have been super stressed between the holidays coming up and dealing with an increased workload.

I am all over the place and my mind is concentrated on a million different things. Anxiety, stress, headaches and insomnia seemed to be synonymous lately.

Upon taking the first Flo shot, you notice that these work quicker than most other products. They work a few minutes after taking one.

Almost immediately I felt a calming sensation coming on and it alleviated some of my headaches.


I was able to unwind much easier during the afternoon. This seemed to reduce my anxiety quite a bit and just overall in general relaxed me. It slowed down the frantic pace of the day.

At night, these shots worked well too. I slept much easier and they produced very vivid dreams. Overall when taking them to sleep, my sleep felt more restorative and I wasn’t waking up as frequently as I do at nights. Treating insomnia seems to be the key feature in this CBD.

After taking the rest of the shots over the course of the week, the effects were consistent every time.

I noticed an almost immediate calming sensation, which made my day a little more serene, and nights were much better. Overall, this is a very relaxing strain.

Overall I was very pleased with these Flo Shots. The design is excellent and the water-soluble hemp does seem to kick in quicker than other products.

The CBD overall was very relaxing and worked well for insomnia. Every flavor was unique and tasted great. My little nitpicking is with the green tea one, it could have had a more robust green tea flavor, it was still good nonetheless.
