Where to Buy:
SeaBeDee offers multiple varieties of this tincture, including the regular sleep blend and a lavender-infused version. We tried both, and here's what we think:
Original Sleep Blend: This original sleep blend includes a proprietary terpene blend that is responsible for a mild and natural smell. The smell is slightly sweet and leaves behind the smallest touch of a grassy, even slightly floral aroma.
- Lavender Sleep Blend: The Lavender blend is incredibly aromatic and smells much like the Lavender essential oil it's made with. It's not overwhelming, but definitely has a stronger aroma than the original.
Again, each sleep blend variety has its own unique flavor, and these two blends are very different in nature:
Original Sleep Blend: The flavor of this tincture is consistent with many of the SeaBeDee tinctures we've tried in that it has a light, airy feel that is only mildly disrupted by a "hempy" taste. Likely, this grassy, nutty background flavor is a direct result of the "proprietary terpene blend" used to help this tincture target sleep issues. The flavor of this tincture is not overwhelming in the least.
- Lavender Sleep Blend: This is the first of SeaBeDee's tinctures that we've tried that sported a particularly strong (and slightly unpleasant) flavor. Presumably a result of the Lavender, the light, oily texture is disrupted by a perfume-like flavor. Of course, if the Lavender oil serves its purpose to enhance relaxation and sleep, the unpleasant momentary flavor is a small price to pay.
Both versions of this CBD Sleep Blend are made with a thin full spectrum hemp oil that is smooth and delicate. The oil is lightly golden from trace plant material, but leaves nothing behind after swallowing. It's easy to dose these tinctures with the attached dropper lid, so dosing before bed is as easy as ever.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity):
Two testers got to experience both varieties of this sleep tincture, one of which suffered from sleeplessness due to a PTSD diagnosis. The tester took the recommended dosage (1 dropper, or 17mg) approximately 1 hour before bed. Though he frequently has a rough experience around nighttime (it can sometimes take up to three hours of silence for him to fall asleep) that wasn't the case after this tincture. He fell asleep much more quickly, about 1.5 hours after dosing. After trying both versions on alternating days for a total of six nights (and decidedly increasing his dose to around 30mg), he reported a similar onset each night.
The main difference between the two was the sleep time. The original blend helped him fall asleep quickly, but he still found himself awake and restless again through the middle of the night, a problem that persisted through multiple prescription medications. The nights that the Lavender blend was used he slept more soundly, waking up only once in three nights (and he was able to go quickly back to sleep).
For a fresh perspective on things, we also decided to use this tincture in hopes of "correcting" a sleep schedule in a recently postpartum mother. Her son, who is six months old, recently began sleeping through the night, but she still wakes frequently. After hearing her talk of how tired she felt and how she was worried about her maternity leave coming to an end, we offered her the Lavender sleep blend.
She used it diligently every night for 4 days before reporting back. The first night, she experienced nothing significant. Gradually, however, she began falling asleep quickly, and after day four she was comfortable comparing the effects of this tincture to melatonin. More importantly, she noted that the tincture helped her "sleep gently" so that she could still wake in the case that her infant did, which was her main concern when considering over the counter sleep aids.
Neither testers commented on the duration of the effects, but neither ever mentioned taking a second dose throughout the night.
Best Used For:
Cannabidiol has been linked to the sleep cycle in several ways, including as a wake-promoting agent that can help manage sleep-wake cycles. Some experts believe that Cannabidiol has a biphasic effect, much like alcohol. In other words, they believe that CBD is a stimulant in small doses, but acts more as a sedative in larger doses.
This sleep blend may be appropriate for managing a variety of different sleep-related ailments, including both daytime and nighttime sleep disorders. Depending on your condition, you may need to work alongside your healthcare professional to design the best CBD sleep routine for you.
Best Used With:
These tinctures can be used on their own to help combat sleep issues, and we experienced positive results when using them individually. Keep in mind that tinctures take up to 90 minutes to take effect, so you may need to take it around an hour before you hope to lay down.
If immediate dosing is needed through the night, you could consider an Indica-dominant CBD vape pen, like Comfort Leaf CBD + Gelato Indica Vape Cartridge. Alternatively, many people like CBD gummies for sleep, and CBDistillery Night Time CBD Gummies offers a great option.
There are multiple CBD products that are designed for enhancing sleep or managing sleep issues. We see no reason to opt for a different product, unless you wish to avoid tinctures altogether.
One product designed for sleep concerns includes NutraCanna’s CBD Sleep Tablets (with melatonin). Another unique product that could replace this Sleep Blend is cbdMD’s CBD PM Oil Spray, which also includes melatonin but is dosed in convenient oral sprays instead of drops.
This 500mg bottle of SeaBeDee’s sleep tinctures (both the Natural blend and Lavender variety) is listed at a price of $57.95, which means they cost about $0.12 per milligram of CBD. This comes in at a slightly higher price point than some similar products, like cbdMD CBD PM Oil Tincture Drops, which cost $44.99 for a 500mg bottle.
Many other products rely on melatonin to boost the sleep-enhancing properties of the supplement, so if you’re looking for CBD-provided relief, SeaBeDee is definitely offering a fair value so far as organic cannabidiol products go.
