Where can I find the certificate of analysis for CBDfx products?
All of the company’s lab reports were available on its website and are easy to track down by product. These gummies contained no THC according to the most recent certificate of analysis.
How did you take these CBD gummies formulated for sleep?
I have reviewed other CBD products and have a general idea of how much CBD it takes to produce a meaningful effect on me: about 30 mg. I’ve also taken melatonin and found it took between 10 mg and 15 mg to experience noticeable effects on my sleep cycle.
These are higher than average doses - I’m a heavy-set individual and have a high resistance to most chemicals and supplements beyond that. (I wake up during medical procedures, too.)
Each gummy contains 5 mg of CBD and 2.5 mg of melatonin, so I decided to take six gummies each night at least 30 minutes before bed and not more than two and a half hours before bedtime. This got me pretty close to doses of both CBD and melatonin that I find effective and is a lot compared to the recommended dose of two gummies per evening.
How did CBDfx sleep gummies taste?
These were normal lemon gummy snacks with a faint aftertaste. I'm normally a fan of lemon, but I ended up fairly neutral on these because the aftertaste wasn't great and the lemon flavor was on the weak side. The texture isn't quite like a typical gummy bear - these CBD gummies were much more tender and closer in feel to fruit snacks.
Were CBDfx sleep gummies an effective sleep aid for you?
I took notes on my sleep length and quality for about a week before starting the trial, then used the gummies for a week and compared.
The simplest answer: yes, taking these sleep gummies helped improve my sleep, but it was not a total, immediate, or life-changing improvement. I would definitely say these gummies accomplish the thing they set out to do.
Control Week (No CBD Gummies)
Woke up twice in the night. Took 30 minutes to get back to sleep each time.
Woke up several times. Could not track total time lost to waking up, but exceeded 1 hour.
Extreme trouble getting to sleep - Excess of 1 hour, 30 minutes spent trying.
Slight headache upon waking but generally restful slumber.
Was awakened by a phone call midway through my sleep cycle. Struggled to get back to sleep, returned to bed three hours later for five more hours of sleep.
Awoke briefly at one point, but nothing notable.
Awoke 40 minutes before a set alarm.
With CBD Gummies
Woke up just ahead of alarm. Initially felt like I wanted more sleep, but after about ten minutes of wakefulness, I felt well-rested and alert.
Very vivid dreams. While I woke up multiple times during this sleep cycle, I never struggled to sleep.
Woke up several times. One of those times took more than 30 minutes to return to sleep. Ultimately awoke feeling well-rested.
I tried to go to bed early due to a headache and it didn’t quite take. Compared to the similar event in the control week, I felt much more rested and the return to sleep a few hours later was more comfortable.
Usually I feel fully awake after 10 minutes, but today it took about 25 to get to that point. The sleep itself was phenomenal, though.
Almost identical to the experience two days prior, though spurred by a mild depressive episode instead of a headache.
While I woke up once or twice in the night. I’d classify this as almost as good a sleep as the one two days prior.
How would you describe your overall experience with these CBD sleep gummies?
The overall quality of my sleep and my perception of that quality skyrocketed. I was able to sleep longer, which has always been difficult for me, and while I still occasionally woke up during my sleep cycle, waking up was less distressing and easier to recover from.
In terms of raw numbers I gained about 1.6 extra hours of sleep a night.
I would not say that these sleep gummies immediately solved every issue I’ve ever had with sleeping. have trouble sleeping throughout the night and sometimes take long naps during the day. This is a regular issue for me and did not go away during the trial week.
