Who doesn’t love a good sweet and chewy gummy? Gummies are a great way to ingest supplements these days and the CBD market has caught on with an explosion of gummy options. Specifically, we have narrowed down a list of some of the best CBD gummies for sleep. Because with so much going on in the world right now, we could all use a little help getting to sleep! Here are five high-quality CBD brands that make gummies that are designed to promote a night of restful sleep. We tried out all of them ourselves, here’s what we thought of each of them.
CBD Distillery’s Sleep CBD Gummies + Melatonin ($60)
We just love these sugar-coated little cubes. They have a fresh taste to the gummy that is soft and juicy, not dry and chewy like some gummies tend to lean towards. The taste itself is ever so slightly medicinal and “hempy” but not in a bad way. Even though they are green, the berry flavor comes through loud and clear. The most noticeable aspect of these gummies that set them apart from the others on this list is that they only have 2 mg of melatonin. That is a pretty weak amount of melatonin for most people. The plus side here is that these gummies are suitable for you if you don’t want to become overly reliant on melatonin and only need a gentle nudge to fall asleep. However, most people typically need 5mg to 10mg of melatonin for it to be the most effective. It’s worth noting that these gummies can be bundled with the Relax CBD gummies for daytime use, to get a steady dose of CBD throughout the day, with the idea being that together they provide a sustained amount of CBD in your system and because they are being consumed via the digestive system, the higher amount of 30mg CBD and 38mg broad-spectrum hemp extract (aerial parts) will hopefully mean that a good amount of CBD gets into your system. The Relax and Sleep Bottles are exactly the same with the exception of the Sleep Bottle having a different flavor (berry rather than tropical fruit) and 2mg of Melatonin.
CBDFX CBD Gummies for Sleep ($49)
The medicinal flavor in CBDFX’s CBD Gummies for Sleep is reminiscent of the taste of cold medicine, and that is likely because it has so much packed into such a small gummy (the serving size is two). There isn’t just a whopping 50mg of CBD per dosage, but also 5mg of melatonin, along with magnesium, passionflower, chamomile, and lemon balm, which are all heavy hitters in the sleep game. These gummies acted quickly, making us sleepy fast, and their calming effect is strong. Also, a major selling point is that these CBD gummies are vegan! Gelatin has been substituted with pectin, so if you are not vegan and are used to the chewiness of a gelatin-based gummy, you will notice the texture is different but it’s not bad. In addition, 90% of these gummies’ ingredients are organic.
TOP PICK: Charlotte’s Web Sleep CBD Gummies ($29.99)
Charlotte’s Web is such a charmingly named company and they have an equally wonderful product in these gummies, making them our top pick from this round-up. Their Web Sleep gummies taste great, with a rich raspberry flavor that is somewhere in between a gummy and jello. Their texture is good – soft and slightly chewy. Fortunately, a serving is two gummies, so you get to enjoy the tasty treat each night. We also love the container they come in. It is sturdy, nicely labeled, and hard to knock over at night when you are clamoring for a sleep aid. Oftentimes all gummies stick together, but this kind of container makes them easy to fish out. Despite them containing a relatively low dosage of CBD and melatonin, we found the gummies to be very effective, likely due to the full-spectrum CBD terpenes with the just-right 3mg melatonin dose. If you really want to whammy yourself into calm you can bundle these gummies with their 60mg CBD Oil for daytime use. We tested that oil also, and the mint-chocolate flavor is phenomenal and very effective as well.
Green Roads Sleepy Z Gummies ($49.99)
Having a packet to throw in your bag when you are headed out for a trip is the real selling point with Green Roads Sleepy Z Gummies. You get two servings per resealable bag at a bit heftier of a price due to the individual nature of the packets. They have a wonderful, tasty blackberry flavor going for them but they are so moist and sticky, you will have to wash your hands or lick the residue off your fingers. They contain a high 25mg dosage of CBD and 5mg melatonin, so these gummies get the job done.
MedTerra Sleep Tight CBD Gummies ($39.99)
We enjoy the Strawberry flavor of MedTerra Sleep Tight CBD Gummies a lot but we’re split on how medicinal it tastes. The texture is great, moist and chewy, and packed with flavor. But they all kind of stick together in the bag making them hard to get out without getting the residue on your hands. What stands out with Medterra’s Sleep Gummies, however, is the unique inclusion of an herbal blend, so it is like having a cup of sleepy time tea before bed, but with quite a punch! The inclusion of 5-HTP, a mood booster, was an interesting choice for these gummies and perhaps the culprit of finding the gummy both relaxing and stimulating at the same time. That said, because these gummies are chock full of calming ingredients and everyone reacts differently to them, you will have to see how they work for you. If you have used 5-HTP in the past with success, then this may be your sweet spot for a sleep time gummy aid.
