Hibernation Has Never Been So Sweet
Sleepy Bear’s Blue Raspberry Gummies lull you to sleep without any morning grogginess.
IN REVIEW: The Blue Raspberry gummies by Sleepy Bear make for a sweet-and-sour, berry-flavored sleep aid. They’re non-psychoactive and come with 10 to a pack. Each gummy contains 5mg of CBD Hemp Extract, 3mg of CBN, and 2mg of melatonin. They’re also low in sugar, vegan, and gluten-free. Founded in San Diego, Sleepy Bear is geared towards health-conscious consumers and uses only sustainable materials. They’re also veteran owned and operated, and offer a 30% discount to veterans along with donating 3% of profits to associated organizations.
The Nighttime Gummy Formula by the aptly named Sleepy Bear is a triple threat of seamless slumber. A pitch-perfect combination of CBD, CBN, and melatonin that acts as a primer for a good night’s rest. After a week spent working long hours, I really needed to catch up on my ZZZ’s. To that end, I consumed three gummies, but I really could have eaten all 10. They tasted that good. They reminded me of those berry snack packs I had as a kid in my school lunches. Couple that with the rather adorable packaging, and I actually felt like a kid eating these. A kid with adult problems, mind you, because it had been a week or more since I had a full 8 hours rest.
“It was a gradual descent into deep restfulness, and unlike THC products, I could still retain my dreams. ”
It took no longer than 15 or so minutes before this mixture of cannabinoids and melatonin started to appear on my rest radar. It was like a gentle wave of ethereal bliss, and I thought to myself, “Now this is what relaxation should feel like.” Unlike THC edibles, I didn’t have to worry about what popping three gummies may do to me. Lots of times, if I don’t watch my dosage, not only do I not get the sleep I want, but I wind up staying up on account of the anxiety. I also like reading before I clonk out, and sometimes a cannabis high, while effective, doesn’t really allow for that. With these, I found myself skimming through pages without registering a thing. With the non-psychoactive Nighttime Formula, I found that I was able to wind down with a good book and actually absorb the material.
From consumption to Sleepy Junction, it may have been an hour total. I read a chapter or two, and before I knew it the eyelids were getting heavy, and the siren song of my mattress was calling to me. It was a gradual descent into deep restfulness, and unlike THC products, I could still retain my dreams. Something I’m often robbed of that experience when high. The final judgment for these gummies was dependent on whether or not I got the quality amount of sleep time I yearned for. When I consulted the morning readout on my smartwatch, it told me I had logged a very dreamy 8.5 hours of total sleep time. This really did hit all the marks I would look for in a non-psychoactive sleep aid. The fact that it’s also low in sugar and devoid of artificial fillers was a nice bonus.

Sleepy Bear provides a monthly subscription service that knocks about ten dollars off the regular price, so if this is something that works for you, this would be a good hassle-free option that could save you a few bucks in the long run. The Nighttime Formula implements nano-absorption technology, and it takes great care in delivering a full spectrum of sleep-inducing cannabinoids that led to what I considered to be a full night’s rest.
What I also appreciated about this formula is that it never made me feel like I was under any sort of mind fogging sedation. It was a far cry from the Acme anvil sort of heavy handedness some other melatonin containing sleep aides can contain. When I awoke in the morning, I was none the worse for wear, and I thought little of putting on my running shoes and jogging a few miles. I’ve had poor experiences with melatonin in the past, where I did not want to get out of bed in the morning, but with a scant 2 mgs, this dosage seemed right on the money. The Sleepy Bear formula is a worthy gummy that delivers rest, relaxation, and ultimately, a substantial night’s sleep.
