Are you a good sleeper? My husband is. He can be out cold within minutes of resting his head on the pillow. I’m very jealous of him for that. I wish I could do something like that on my own. Often I find myself tossing and turning. I’ve been pretty good for a while, but lately I have been having a hard time falling asleep again. Last night I didn’t fall asleep until around 1:30 AM. I was up at 5:30 AM. It’s not so bad on a day like today. I’m off from work so I can take a nap later if needed. However, getting only a few hours sleep on a work night is not good. On days like that i can barely function, and sometimes I find myself feeling grumpy. Being grumpy is not a good mood to be in when you work with children.
I was went some products to help me sleep from the brand CBD Living. They recently introduced a new product, Vegan PM Gummies. To be honest, I wouldn’t seek out vegan products (I’m not a vegan… although I really think I should be), but I’m perfectly OK with vegan products.
According to the brand;
Each Vegan PM Gummy combines 25 mg of broad-spectrum Nano CBD with the power of 5 mg of Melatonin for an all-natural sleep solution, with just 10 calories and 1 gram of sugar. Best yet, CBD Living Vegan PM Gummies are entirely vegan – utilizing tapioca syrup and pectin instead of animal-based gelatin – and come in four fruity flavors (Cherry, Strawberry, Orange and Lemon).
I suffer from a frozen shoulder (I had surgery and get PT, but it still hurts), and I’m older, so I have a lot of aches and pains. Sleeping on a sofa bed for the past 20 years doesn’t help matters either. I know that CBD products can help ease some pains, so I am totally OK taking CBD products.
For the record, CBD products do not contain THC. CBD is from marijuana, but it’s the THC component that causes people to get “high,” NOT the CBD. CBD is perfectly legal.
I will have to admit that the first few times I took these gummies, the taste stood out to me. Even though they are flavored, their taste takes a bit of getting used to. They are not bad tasting, just different. They didn’t come across as fruit flavored.
The dose calls for one gummy at night, but it can be adjusted depending on your personal preference. I found that one did not do anything for me (I am a plus size woman, so weight might be a factor in my tolerance). I found that taking two worked better for me (sometimes I took three if I felt like I might have a bad night).
These gummies did help me to fall asleep faster than I would have without them. I also feel like I had a more restful sleep.
Unlike other sleep aids, I did not wake up in the morning feeling groggy our “out of it.” That is the #1 thing I dislike most about many sleep aid products – waking up groggy. I rather be tired all day than feel that way in the morning. Thankfully I didn’t experience that with these gummies.
CBD Living also sent me a bottle of each of their sleep aid syrups. I received a bottle of each of their flavors – cherry and grape.
CBD Living Vegan PM Gummies are the latest addition to CBD Living’s “Sleep” line, which also contains the popular vegan Sleep Aid Syrup in Cherry and Grape flavors.
Each tablespoon contains 25 mg of Nano-CBD, 2 mg of melatonin, 40 calories and 9 grams of sugar.
I’m not a big fan of the syrups. They have an oily-cough syrup taste to them. I’m also not a fan of CBD tinctures because I don’t know the oil taste and feeling of swallowing oil, that is why I am not fond of this product.
If you enjoy CBD tinctures, then you should have no problem with this product at all. You can taste the flavors, but not enough for me to mask the oil taste and consistency.
The syrups DO work. I did try them out a few times because they were sent to me to review. I just personally don’t like the taste. That being said, the products have a lot of great reviews on the brand’s website. It’s all a matter of personal preference.
