CBD sleep products are becoming increasingly popular and sophisticated. Many contain not just CBD but other active ingredients, with melatonin and the minor cannabinoid, cannabinol (CBN), being the most popular.

But do these products actually contain what it says on the label? Are their levels of active ingredients accurate?

To find out, Leafreport bought 52 CBD sleep products and sent them to an accredited third-party cannabis testing lab called Infinite Chemical Analysis Labs. Most of these came in the form of gummies, tinctures, or capsules.

We compared the lab’s findings to the amounts of CBD, CBN, and melatonin listed on the product label and description. Here’s what we found.

Note: We’ve done similar reports on CBD oils, drinks, edibles, topicals, pet products, tea and coffee, CBG products, and even delta-8 THC. We also report on CBD product prices to help shoppers save money.

Summary

More than half (60%) of the 52 tested products contained inaccurate amounts of active ingredients, meaning the levels of CBD, CBN, and melatonin were off from the labeled strength by over 10% (refer to the accuracy rating section to see how we calculated this).

Other key findings include: 

  • Two out of three products containing melatonin had inaccurate melatonin levels.
  • One product had no melatonin at all, while two others had 3-5 times the labeled amount.
  • Products containing two of the tested ingredients were less accurate than those containing one or all three, with only 29% matching the label.
  • Just over half of the products containing CBD had inaccurate CBD levels.
  • Almost half of the products containing CBN had inaccurate CBN levels.
  • Capsules performed the best out of any product category, with 50% matching the label, followed by 40% of gummies, and 30% of tinctures.
  • Out of 9 products containing all three tested ingredients, 5 (55.6%) matched the label but only one did so for every ingredient.
  • Out of 32 products advertised to contain broad or full-spectrum CBD, 25% were mislabeled.

Accuracy Rating

We measured the accuracy of CBD sleep products by comparing their labeled amounts of CBD, CBN, and melatonin to the test results.

While some variation is expected for CBD products, it should still be within reasonable levels. Industry experts recommend that cannabis products should have cannabinoid levels that are within 10% of the label, meaning accurate CBD products should contain anywhere from 90% to 110% of the advertised cannabinoid content. Although melatonin is not a cannabinoid, we also used the 10% benchmark to be consistent.

Keep in mind that some products contained only one of the tested ingredients, while others had two or all three. If a product contained two or three ingredients, we averaged out their difference from the label.

We gave products one of four accuracy ratings:

  1. A (Excellent): independent lab tests showed the combined levels of CBD, CBN, and melatonin were within 10% of what’s stated on the label.
  2. B (Decent): independent lab tests showed combined ingredient levels within 20% of what’s stated on the label.
  3. C (Poor): independent lab tests showed combined ingredient levels within 30% of what’s stated on the label.
  4. F (Fail): independent lab tests showed combined ingredient levels differed from what’s stated on the label by over 30%.

For example, if a CBD sleep tincture was advertised to have 500 mg of CBD, 500 mg of CBN, and 30 mg of melatonin, but our tests only found 250 mg, 250 mg, and 20 mg, respectively, that would average out to ((250/500+250/500+20/30)/3)*100 = 55.6% of what’s claimed. Such a poor result would receive our worst F grade.

Meanwhile, if gummies advertised to provide 25 mg of CBD and 2 mg of melatonin showed 23 mg CBD and 1.9 mg on the test, they would receive an A because that’s a combined difference of less than 10%.

Understanding the need for good quality products, and using this report and data from other reports, Leafreport has compiled a list of the best CBD for sleep. Leafreport also released a list of best CBD gummies for sleep products. To learn more about how Leafreport selects the best CBD products, click here.

CBD Third-Party Testing Explained

The CBD market is unregulated and full of low-quality products that don’t contain what they should. That’s why CBD companies pay independent laboratories to test their products to prove their safety and label accuracy.

The most important third-party test is a potency or cannabinoid profile test, which measures the amount of CBD and other cannabinoids in a product. These are the same tests that we order for our reports.

Verifying the levels of CBD, CBN, and melatonin in a product is important for many reasons, including:

  • Ensuring you receive your money’s worth.
  • A product with fewer active ingredients than claimed will be less effective.
  • A product with more active ingredients than claimed will make it harder to figure out your dosage and can increase the likelihood of side effects.

Certificate of Analysis (CoA)

We bought 52 CBD products that were marketed for sleep and sent them to Infinite Chemical Analysis Labs, an accredited third-party cannabis testing lab based in California.

The lab technicians measured the levels of CBD, CBN, and melatonin in each product and recorded their findings in documents called Certificates of Analysis (CoAs).

Next, we compared the amounts of the active ingredients reported on the CoAs to what was advertised on the product’s label or description.

We also looked at the levels of cannabinoids detected by the tests, especially if the manufacturer claimed to use broad-spectrum or full-spectrum hemp extract. Such products are considered more effective than those containing only pure CBD and should contain detectable levels of THC and other minor cannabinoids.

How to Read CoAs

Trustworthy CBD brands post third-party CoAs on their website, making it easy to confirm you’re getting a safe and accurate product before buying.

While reading a CoA might seem overwhelming at first, the key information isn’t hard to find. The main section to watch out for is called “cannabinoids,” “cannabinoid profile,” “potency,” or something similar.

In this section, find columns and/or graphs listing the names of cannabinoids such as CBD, CBN, THC, and others, and their amounts in percentages or milligrams (mg) per milliliter (ml), gram (g), serving, or unit.

If you want more tips for reading CoAs, check out our detailed guide.

Summary Table

Here’s the summary of the test findings for the 52 CBD sleep products, which included 30 gummies, 10 oils, 10 capsules, one syrup, and one pill product. 

The variance columns show the difference in percent (%) between the advertised level of CBD, CBN, or melatonin, and the actual amount found by the tests. A negative number means a product contains less active ingredients than advertised. The variances are combined and averaged out to arrive at the product’s overall accuracy grade.

You can also review detailed test results for each product after the main table.

Disclaimer: Our report is based solely on Infinite Chemical Analysis Labs’ findings. Test results may vary due to the degradation of cannabinoids over time, variation between product batches, and other factors. Our findings should not be seen as conclusive, complete, error-free, or at all times methodologically or scientifically accurate.

Conclusion

Most (60%) of the 52 CBD sleep products we sent for testing didn’t match the label. Twenty-one (40%) got an A, 18 (35%) got a B, eight (15%) got a C, and five (10%) received an F. 

This result isn’t as bad as it looks, because 75% of products received an A or a B, which is pretty good considering most had two active ingredients (rather than just CBD). 

Additionally, many of the products that received a B or C contained small amounts of CBN and melatonin, making it more difficult to stay within the 10% cutoff needed for an A grade. Only a handful of products had undeniably poor results. 

Of 32 products advertised to contain full or broad-spectrum CBD, we found 24 (75%) were accurate, which is also a decent result. 

Another unexpected finding is that capsules performed the best out of all product types, with 50% receiving an A compared to 40% of gummies and 30% of tinctures. 

Of 31 products containing two of the tested ingredients, only nine (26%) were accurate, compared to 58% of single-ingredient and 56% of three-ingredient products. 

These trends are interesting but we’d have to test more products to see if they hold up. 

The most surprising finding is that melatonin was the least accurate ingredient. Of 24 products containing it, 16 (66.6%) had melatonin levels that were off from the label by more than 10%. In fact, one product had no melatonin at all and two others contained 3-5 times more than advertised. 

We suspect there are two reasons for this:

  1. CBD products contain less melatonin than cannabinoids, so it’s harder to maintain accuracy
  2. Because melatonin isn’t a cannabinoid, it may be treated as less important by product formulators (which is also why we haven’t seen any CBD brands ordering third-party tests for melatonin)

We were also surprised that products were more likely to have accurate amounts of CBN than CBD. This may be because CBN is usually added separately, allowing manufacturers better control over the precise amount.

Even though most of the tested products didn’t pass our accuracy benchmarks, by and large the findings still exceeded our expectations. 

If you want to buy a CBD product for sleep, we recommend going with a trustworthy, reputable CBD company and checking the third-party test results to make sure the CBD (and potentially CBN) levels match the label.

Detailed Test Results

Check out the detailed test findings for each product below, including the levels of melatonin, CBD, CBN, and other cannabinoids.

Elevate CBD Sleep Capsules

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Elevate CBD sleep capsules 10.27 N/A -2.00 A

Elevate CBD isn’t a well-known brand. Despite that, its CBD Sleep Capsules performed well on our tests. 

They claim to contain 3 mg of melatonin and 15 mg of CBD, with our tests finding 2.9 mg and 16.5 mg, respectively. That’s an average variance of only 6.1%, which is well below the 10% cutoff needed to receive an A grade.

However, the tests didn’t detect any THC, which should be present in a full-spectrum CBD product.

Pachamama Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Pachamama sleep gummies 4.55 -1.75 -17.50 A

Pachamama is a popular brand offering a wide variety of CBD products. We sent its sleep gummies for testing, which should contain 4 mg of CBN, 2 mg of melatonin, and 20 mg of CBD.

The CoA showed 3.93 mg, 1.65 mg, and 20.91 mg, respectively, adding up to an overall difference of 7.93%, which is a great result. 

Nama Melatonin Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Nama Melatonin Sleep Gummies -4.16 12.60 -13.00 A

Nama is another brand we haven’t heard of before this report. We sent its Sleep Gummies for testing, finding 5.63 mg CBN (claimed 5 mg), 2.61 mg melatonin (claimed 3 mg), and 23.96 mg CBD (claimed 25 mg). 

These fairly small differences add up to an average variance of 9.9%, which is just enough to receive an A rating. A great result proving that lesser-known companies shouldn’t be overlooked.

Five CBD Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Five CBD Sleep Gummies 4.24 N/A 2.67 A

Five CBD is a major CBD brand specializing in products with high levels of minor cannabinoids. Its Sleep Gummies claim to contain 3 mg of melatonin and 25 mg of CBD; our tests found 3.08 mg and 26.06 mg.

That’s one of the best results out of any products we tested, with a difference of 4.24% for CBD and 2.67% for melatonin, adding up to an average variance of only 3.5% from the label.

Better yet, the tests also detected significant amounts of THC and other minor cannabinoids, verifying that this is a full-spectrum product. 

Original Hemp CBD Sleep Capsules

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Original Hemp CBD Sleep Capsules 3.84 N/A 2.86 A

A fairly small CBD brand, Original Hemp sells CBD Sleep Capsules containing 12.5 mg of CBD and about 0.35 mg of melatonin. 

The test report showed 12.98 mg of CBD and 0.36 mg melatonin, which is a very small difference, especially when you’re working with such tiny amounts. This great result is well-deserving of an A grade.

The tests also found THC but no other minor cannabinoids that should be present in a full-spectrum product.

CBD ReThink Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
CBD ReThink Sleep Gummies -2.40 N/A -4.80 A

CBD ReThink carries many products with multi-ingredient formulas, including sleep gummies with CBD and melatonin. The CoA showed 4.76 m of melatonin and 24.4 mg of CBD versus the advertised 5 mg and 25 mg.

That’s a combined difference of 3.6%, which is a great result. The tests also found minor cannabinoids and zero THC, confirming that these gummies are broad-spectrum.

HempFusion CBD Sleep Capsules

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
HempFusion CBD Sleep Capsules -2.80 N/A N/A A

HempFusion is a fairly new, rising CBD company. Its CBD sleep capsules contain many added ingredients but no melatonin or CBN, so we only tested their CBD content.

The CoA showed 9.72 mg CBD, which is only 2.8% less than the advertised 10 mg. That’s a great result. However, the tests didn’t find any THC or other minor cannabinoids, which should be present in a full-spectrum CBD product.

Hemp Bombs Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Hemp Bombs Sleep Gummies 1.60 N/A N/A A

Florida’s Hemp Bombs is one of the most recognized CBD companies on the market. We sent its sleep gummies for testing, finding that they contained 15.24 mg of CBD.

That’s only 1.6% more than the advertised 15 mg, which is a great result.

Binoid Good Night CBD Oil

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Binoid Good Night CBD Oil -0.88 N/A N/A A

Binoid offers regular CBD products as well as intoxicating ones containing delta-8 THC and other alternative cannabinoids. We sent its Good Night CBD Oil to be tested, finding that it had 991.24 mg of CBD versus the advertised 1000 mg.

That’s the smallest variance we saw from any product, which is well-deserving of an A grade. On top of that, the tests found other minor cannabinoids but zero THC, confirming that this oil is broad-spectrum.

Sunday Scaries Sleep Tincture

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Sunday Scaries Sleep Tincture -4.25 11.13 N/A A

Sunday Scaries offers many less-common CBD products like bath bombs and candy. We bought its Sleep Tincture, which is advertised to have 750 mg of CBD and 250 mg of CBN.

The tests found 718.12 and 277.83 mg, adding up to an average difference of 7.7% from the label. That’s a fairly accurate result that’s less than 10%, so we gave it an A.

Better yet, the tests found minor hemp cannabinoids but no THC, verifying that this is a broad-spectrum tincture.

Cibadol CBN Tincture

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Cibadol CBN Tincture N/A -4.36 N/A A

Cibadol is a small company offering CBD products at low prices. It also has a tincture that contains only 300 mg of pure CBN and no other active ingredient.

The CoA showed 286.92 mg CBN, a difference of only 4.4%. That’s a great result but the test also found small amounts of THC, which shouldn’t be present in a CBN isolate product.

Wyld CBD+CBN Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Wyld CBD+CBN Gummies -0.88 -8.00 N/A A

Wyld CBD only sells CBD gummies and beverages, including CBD+CBN gummies meant for sleep. They should contain 5 mg CBN and 25 mg CBD, and the tests find 4.6 mg and 24.78 mg, which is a great result.

The tests also detected several minor cannabinoids and no THC, verifying that this is a broad-spectrum CBD product. 

Moonwlkr CBD+CBN Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Moonwlkr CBD+CBN Gummies -1.20 -3.50 N/A A

Moonwlkr started out as a delta 8 vendor that later expanded into CBD products. Its CBD+CBN Gummies should have 10 mg CBN and 25 mg CBD, while the tests showed 9.6 and 24.7 mg.

That’s one of the smallest variances out of any product we tested, so we gave it an A.

Slumber Sleep Aid Capsules

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Slumber Sleep Aid Capsules N/A 3.00 N/A A

Slumber is an up-and-coming brand that focuses solely on cannabinol (CBN) sleep products. We bought its Sleep Aid Capsules, which should provide 5 mg CBN per piece.

The test CoA showed 5.15 mg, which is only 3% more. That’s a great result so it gets an A.

Receptra Naturals Serious Rest Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Receptra Naturals Serious Rest Gummies 1.88 0.33 N/A A

Receptra Naturals is one of many high-quality brands from Colorado. We tested its Serious Rest Gummies, which contain 3 mg melatonin and 25 mg CBD. The tests found 3.01 mg and 24.7 mg. 

That’s a combined difference of 1.1% from the label — the best result of any multi-ingredient product we tested. The tests also found THC and other minor cannabinoids, verifying that this is a full-spectrum CBD product.

Better yet, Receptra scored an A on our previous reports of CBD oil and topicals, providing further proof that it’s a quality brand. 

CBD American Shaman CBNight Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
CBD American Shaman cbnight gummies N/A -9.50 N/A A

CBD American Shaman is a large brand with franchise stores throughout the country. It sells CBNight Gummies with 2 mg CBN each. The tests showed 1.81 mg, which is 9.5% lower, so it gets an A for being within 10% of the label.

Naturalis CBN Capsules

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Naturalis CBN Capsules N/A 1.60 N/A A

Naturalis isn’t the biggest name in the CBD space but we were curious about how its CBN capsules would do. They’re advertised to have 25 mg CBN and the CoA showed 25.4 mg, a difference of only 1.6%.

Dosist CBD Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Dosist CBD Sleep Gummies 2.48 6.00 N/A A

Dosist offers a wide variety of CBD products with additional cannabinoids. Its Sleep Gummies combine 2.5 mg of CBN with 25 mg of CBD, while the CoA showed 2.65 mg and 25.62 mg.

With a combined difference of only 4.2% from the label, these gummies get an A for accuracy.

PureKana Sleep-Aid Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
PureKana Sleep-Aid Gummies -12.88 -3.40 -8.50 A

PureKana is a popular CBD vendor based in Arizona. We bought its Sleep-Aid Gummies, which are advertised to have 5 mg CBN, 2 mg melatonin, and 25 mg CBD.

The test results showed 4.83 mg, 1.83 mg, and 21.78 mg, respectively, adding up to an average difference of 8.3%. That falls within our 10% cutoff so it gets an A.

Better yet, the tests found several minor cannabinoids, verifying that these gummies are broad-spectrum.

Sky Wellness Sleep Softgels

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Sky Wellness Sleep Softgels 5.48 13.67 1.00 A

We haven’t heard of the brand Sky Wellness before but were interested in its Sleep Softgels because they contain all three ingredients we were testing for.

The tests revealed 3.41 mg CBN, 3.03 mg melatonin, and 26.37 mg CBD, versus an advertised amount of 3 mg, 3 mg, and 25 mg, respectively. 

Averaging out to a variance of only 6.7%, this is another great result from a lesser-known CBD company. The tests also detected another minor cannabinoid and no THC, confirming these softgels are made with broad-spectrum hemp extract.

Plain Jane Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Plain Jane Sleep Gummies -5.00 -2.80 -6.80 A

Plain Jane is best known as a hemp flower vendor, so we were curious to see how its edible CBD products would perform. We tested its Sleep Gummies, which should contain 5 mg CBN, 2.5 mg melatonin, and 10 mg CBD.

The tests found 4.86 mg (2.8% less), 2.33 mg (6.8% less), and 9.5 mg (5% less), respectively, which is a great result.

Out of the nine products that contained CBN, CBD and melatonin, this was the only one that met our 10% cutoff for every individual ingredient. That’s not easy to do, especially with such small amounts.

Better yet, the tests found THC and other minor cannabinoids, confirming that these gummies are full-spectrum. 

Charlotte’s Web Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Charlotte’s Web Sleep Gummies 21.80 N/A 5.33 B

 

Charlotte’s Web is one of the oldest and most established CBD brands on the market. We sent its Sleep Gummies for testing, which should contain 1.5 mg of melatonin and 5 mg of CBD per piece.

The tests found 1.58 mg and 6.09 mg, which averages out to a difference of 13.6%. That’s not a bad result, especially when we consider the tiny amount of each active ingredient used in these gummies. 

However, it does fall short of the 10% we expect from an accurate CBD product and accordingly it gets a B.

The tests also detected THC and other minor cannabinoids, confirming the gummies are made with full-spectrum CBD.

CBD Living PM Syrup

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
CBD Living PM Syrup -12.99 -7.90 -14.63 B

Unlike most CBD companies, CBD Living focuses on less-common products like CBD-infused beverages. We bought its PM Syrup, a unique sleep syrup product that’s advertised to contain 40 mg of CBN, 200 mg of CBD, and 16 mg of melatonin.

The lab tests found 36.84 mg, 174.03 mg, and 13.66 mg, respectively. That’s an average difference of 11.8% from the label, which is still a decent result. However, it’s not enough to score an A.

The tests also detected minor cannabinoids and no THC, confirming that this is a broad-spectrum product.

CBDistillery Sleep Synergy Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
CBDistillery Sleep Synergy Gummies 17.80 16.60 N/A B

CBDistillery is a leading CBD company, so we were curious to see how it would do. We tested its Sleep Synergy Gummies, which combine 15 mg of CBD with 5 mg of CBN.

The tests showed 17.67 and 5.83 mg, which is pretty close and not a bad result because the cannabinoid strength of these gummies is low. As it’s a difference of 17.2%, it receives a B.

The tests also found THC and other minor cannabinoids, confirming these gummies are full-spectrum.

Green Roads Sleepy Zs Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Green Roads Sleepy Zs Gummies -8.16 N/A -23.60 B

Florida’s Green Roads is one of the giants of the CBD industry. We bought its Sleep Gummies, which should contain 5 mg melatonin and 25 mg CBD per piece.

The CoA revealed 3.82 mg and 22.96 mg, averaging 15.9% lower than the labeled strength. That’s still a decent result given the small amount of melatonin per gummy and the fact that the CBD levels are fairly close.

The tests also found no THC and two minor cannabinoids, confirming this is a broad-spectrum CBD product.

Medterra CBD sleep gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Medterra CBD Sleep Gummies -3.76 N/A -22.33 B

Another CBD brand with a recognizable name, Medterra sells Sleep Gummies with 25 mg CBD and 3 mg melatonin. The tests found 24.06 and 2.33 mg: a difference of 13.1%. 

Again, this is not the worst result because there are such small amounts of melatonin and the CBD levels were fairly accurate.

Zatural CBN Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Zatural CBN Gummies 11.07 12.80 N/A B

The CBN Gummies from Zatural are advertised to provide 15 mg of CBD and 5 mg of CBN per gummy. The tests found 16.66 mg and 5.64 mg, adding up to a difference of 11.9%. 

That’s pretty close to the 10% cutoff needed for an A, especially considering the small amount of active ingredients, so it’s still a solid result.

FOCL Night Capsules

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
FOCL Night Capsules 12.80 N/A N/A B

 

FOCL’s Night Capsules contain several sleep ingredients but the only one we could test for was CBD. Each capsule should provide 10 mg of CBD but the tests found 11.28 mg, a difference of 12.8%. 

That’s a little shy of the cutoff needed to score an A for accuracy so we gave it a B.

Nature’s Script Sleep CBD Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Nature’s Script Sleep CBD Gummies 12.00 N/A 12.00 B

The Sleep Gummies from Nature’s Script should provide 15 mg of CBD and 5 mg of melatonin. The CoA showed 16.8 mg and 5.6 mg: an average variance of 12%.

That’s 2% outside the range needed for an A grade, so we gave this product a B.

Social CBD Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Social CBD Sleep Gummies 15.60 N/A N/A B

Social CBD is a mid-tier CBD vendor selling sleep-focused CBD gummies. The label says they contain 12.5 mg CBD per piece but the tests found 14.45 mg, which is 15.6% more.

Not a bad result given the small amount of CBD but not quite enough to get an A. 

Additionally, the tests found minor cannabinoids without any THC, verifying these gummies are broad-spectrum. 

High Falls Hemp CBD Sleep Tincture

High Falls Hemp CBD Sleep Tincture 19.22 -2.67 N/A B

Family-owned High Falls Hemp offers a complete range of CBD products. We sent its Sleep Tincture for testing, finding it contained 178.83 mg CBD and 365 mg CBN versus the150 mg and 375 mg advertised.

That adds up to an average difference of 10.9% from the label, which is a good result that’s just shy of an A score. 

The tests also detected THC and other minor cannabinoids, confirming this is a full-spectrum tincture.

Sunmed CBN gummies

SunMed CBN Gummies 26.79 9.26 N/A B

SunMed is a unique CBD brand that focuses on selling its products in franchised CBD stores across the country. It has a wide product lineup that includes CBN+CBD gummies.

Unfortunately, the label for these gummies only says they contain 25 mg of cannabinoids without specifying exactly how much is CBD or CBN. Accordingly, why we compared our findings to the company’s own third-party tests.

Their CoA showed 5.83 mg CBN and 18.4 mg CBD, while the one we got from Infinite Analysis found 6.37 mg and 23.33 mg. That’s a difference of 18%, which gets a B on our grading scale.

The tests also detected THC and other minor cannabinoids, verifying that these gummies are full-spectrum.

Try The CBD CBN Sleep Oil

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Try The CBD CBN Sleep Oil 5.17 28.59 N/A B

Colorado’s Try The CBD has many products, including a broad-spectrum CBN Sleep Oil. The label says it contains 900 mg CBD and 300 mg CBN, while the lab tests found 946.55 mg and 385.76 mg.

Adding up to 16.9% more than the label, this result gets a solid B. However, the tests also detected minor hemp cannabinoids including THC, which shouldn’t be present in a broad-spectrum CBD product.

Elixinol Sleep Gummies

Elixinol Sleep Gummies -5.27 17.00 N/A B

Elixinol is one of the oldest and most established CBD brands you’ll come across. We sent its Sleep Gummies for testing, which should have 15 mg CBD with 2 mg CBN.

The CoA showed 14.21 mg and 2.34 mg, making this product about 11.1% higher than the label. That’s still a good result, especially since 2 mg CBN is such a small amount.

The tests also found other minor cannabinoids and trace amounts of THC (less than 0.01%, as claimed by Elixinol), confirming that this is a broad-spectrum product.

YIPS Night CBD Capsules

YIPS Night CBD Capsules -11.28 N/A N/A B

The Night Capsules from YIPS should provide 25 mg of CBD per dose. The CoA showed 22.18 mg, which is 11.3% lower.

That’s close to the advertised amount but falls a tad short of the 10% cutoff for an A, so we gave it a B. The tests also found minor hemp cannabinoids but no THC, which should be present in a full-spectrum CBD product. 

Kiara Naturals Sleep Tincture

Kiara Naturals Sleep Tincture -19.18 N/A N/A B

Kiara Naturals is one of few CBD brands based in Switzerland, a country synonymous with quality. We looked at Kiara’s Sleep Tincture, which should provide 450 mg of CBD.

Our tests showed 363.7 mg, which is 19.2% less than advertised. That result gets a B score for being within 20% of the labeled strength. 

In addition, the tests also didn’t find any THC or other minor cannabinoids, which should be present in a full-spectrum CBD product.

Winged Sleepy CBD Gummies

Winged Sleepy CBD Gummies -8.10 N/A -15.50 B

Winged is a women’s wellness CBD brand. We tested its Sleepy CBD Gummies, which are advertised to have 10 mg of CBD and 2 mg of melatonin.

The tests found 9.19 mg and 1.69 mg, adding up to a variance of 11.8%. Not a bad result, especially with the low CBD and melatonin strength. The tests also detected THC and other minor cannabinoids, confirming these gummies are full-spectrum.

Lazarus Naturals Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Lazarus Naturals Sleep Gummies 20.40 7.40 N/A B

Lazarus Naturals is among the most well-liked CBD companies on the market thanks to its low prices and high quality. We sent its Sleep Gummies for testing, which should have 15 mg of CBD and 5 mg of CBN.

The CoA showed 18.06 mg and 5.37 mg: a difference of 13.9%. That’s a decent result but it does fall short of the 10% cutoff needed to get an A.

The tests also found THC and other minor cannabinoids, verifying these gummies contain full-spectrum hemp extract. 

JustCBD Gummies for Sleep

JustCBD Gummies for Sleep -10.50 N/A -11.00 B

Florida’s JustCBD has over 30,000 customer reviews, making it one of the most popular CBD vendors. Its Sleep Gummies should provide 10 mg CBD and 2 mg melatonin.

The CoA we got back showed 8.95 mg and 1.78 mg, which is a difference of 10.8% from the label.

That’s a good result — especially since the CBD and melatonin amounts are small — but it’s outside the 10% maximum variance for an A grade.

Blue Moon Hemp CBD Melatonin Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Blue Moon Hemp CBD Melatonin Gummies -43.41 N/A -13.00 C

Blue Moon Hemp isn’t the biggest name in the CBD space but does that mean its products are inaccurate? We looked at its 18.75 mg CBD gummies infused with 5 mg of melatonin.

The tests showed 10.61 mg CBD and 4.35 mg melatonin, which is 28.2% less than the label. That’s a fairly sizable difference, so we gave it a C.

Redeem Therapeutics Sleep CBD Gummies

Redeem Therapeutics Sleep CBD Gummies -27.52 -19.80 -24.60 C

The broad-spectrum Sleep Gummies from Redeem Therapeutics contain all three of the ingredients we tested for: 12.5 mg CBD, 5 mg CBN, and 5 mg melatonin.

The tests showed 9.06 mg, 4.01 mg, and 3.77 mg, respectively. Adding up, that’s 24% less than the labeled amounts, so these gummies get a C grade. While this is not the best result, we can cut the company some slack because of the relatively low amounts of active ingredients.

Additionally, the tests didn’t find THC or any other minor cannabinoids except trace CBDV. We expect broad-spectrum products to contain more minor cannabinoids.

PlusCBD Sleep Gummies

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
PlusCBD Sleep Gummies 29.40 N/A 29.00 C

PlusCBD is one of the pioneers of the American CBD industry. We sent its Sleep Gummies for testing, which combine 10 mg CBD with 3 mg melatonin. 

The tests we got back found 12.94 mg and 3.87 mg, which is 29.2% higher. That’s a pretty big difference so we gave it a C. Still, it’s not a bad result because the amounts of CBD and melatonin are small, meaning it’s harder to stay within the 10% variance needed for an A score.

The tests also showed small amounts of THC and another minor cannabinoid, confirming these gummies are full-spectrum.

Harmony Sleep Gummies

Harmony Sleep Gummies 47.50 -19.80 -14.00 C

Harmony CBD is a transparent brand that prides itself on making organic CBD products. We looked at its Sleep Gummies, which combine about 20 mg of CBD with 10 mg of CBN and 2 mg of melatonin.

The tests found 29.5 mg, 8.02 mg, and 1.72 mg, respectively. Taken together, that’s a difference of 27.1% from the label, which is fairly big.

In addition, the tests found THC and high amounts of minor cannabinoids, confirming these gummies are a full-spectrum product.

Smilyn Sleep Tincture

Smilyn Sleep Tincture 17.23 22.83 N/A C

California’s Smilyn sells everything from CBD to Delta-8 THC products. Its sleep tincture should contain 900 mg CBD with 100 mg CBN but our tests found 1055.09 and 122.83 mg, which is 20.03% more.

That’s not a bad result because it’s nearlyt a B and it’s preferable to get more active ingredients rather than fewer.

Naternal Rest CBD Oil

Naternal rest CBD oil 28.23 22.29 N/A C

The Rest CBD Oil from Naternal is advertised to contain 1200 mg CBD and 150 mg CBN. However, our tests showed 1538.74 and 183.44 mg, a difference of just over 25%.

While it’s nice to get a quarter more cannabinoids than what you paid for, it’s still a big difference from the label so we gave this tincture a C.

By contrast, we did confirm that this oil is full-spectrum because the tests also found THC and other minor cannabinoids.

The sleep capsules from Florida’s Kore Organic should have 15 mg of CBD but our tests found 18.28 mg. That’s 21.9% more than the label and gets a C grade.

RE Botanicals CBD/CBN Gummies 5.40 -47.90 -16.50 C

RE Botanicals is one of the most environmentally friendly CBD brands on the market but what does that say for the accuracy of its products? We sent its CBD/CBN gummies to be tested. 

The gummies should have 20 mg CBD, 10 mg CBN, and 2 mg melatonin. The tests found 21.08 mg, 5.21 mg, and 1.67 mg, respectively. While the CBD and melatonin levels are fairly accurate, you’re getting almost 50% less CBN than advertised. 

These numbers add up to a difference of 23.3% from the label, which isn’t great. However, our tests did confirm that these gummies are full-spectrum because they contain THC and other minor cannabinoids.

Procana CBD PM Softgels

The PM softgels from Procana are advertised to provide 15 mg of CBD and 3 mg of melatonin. The tests found 16.72 mg of CBD and no melatonin at all, which is arguably the worst result out of any product we tested.

That deserves our F grade for failing to provide what it says on the label. 

CBDfx Calming Tincture

CBDfx Calming Tincture 73.89 -13.79 N/A F

If you’ve bought CBD products before there’s a good chance you’ve heard of CBDfx. It offers several products for sleep, including a Calming Tincture that should have 500 mg CBD and 150 mg CBN.

The tests found 869.43 mg and 129.31 mg, adding up to a difference of 43.8%. While it’s nice to get more CBD than you paid for, this difference is simply too big so it gets an F.

Also, the tests didn’t find any THC or minor hemp cannabinoids (except CBDV) that should be present in a full-spectrum CBD product.

Vida Optima sells both CBD and delta-8 THC products. We tested its Dream Gummies, which should have 25 mg of CBD and 5 mg of CBN.

The tests showed 33.09 mg and 6.58 mg, which is about 32% more. It’s nice to get more rather than less of what you paid for but such a large difference gets an F.

Sandland specializes in natural sleep aids. Its Stay Asleep Pills which are advertised to contain 30 mg CBN with 1 mg melatonin. 

The tests showed a CBN level of 30.9, which is quite accurate. Unfortunately, the melatonin levels were nowhere close: 3.02 mg. Taken together, that’s 102.5% more than the label.

Although this gets our F grade, the CBN levels are quite accurate, so this result isn’t as bad as it looks.

Vida Water-Soluble Sleep Tincture

Produce Name CBD variance % CBN variance % Melatonin variance % Grade
Vida Water-Soluble Sleep Tincture 0.20 N/A 383.67 F

Vida is a relatively small CBD brand. We sent its Water-Soluble Sleep Tincture to be tested. The label says it contains 1000 mg of CBD and 30 mg of melatonin.

Our tests confirmed the CBD levels were very accurate: 1002.05 mg. However, they also found 145.1 mg of melatonin, which is almost five times higher than advertised. 

That’s a pretty bad result even if the CBD is accurate. he tests did also confirm this tincture is broad-spectrum, finding minor cannabinoids and no THC.
