Receptra Naturals Serious Rest CBD + CBN Gummies offer full-spectrum benefits with a Cannabinol boost, but what does that mean for serious sleep troubles?
The brand offers these Serious Rest Gummies in a 30 count bottle. Each gummy contains a 25 mg dose of full-spectrum CBD with a 3 mg boost of CBN, commonly known as the “sleep cannabinoid.” The pectin and organic cane sugar-based gummies are only available in one flavor—Mountain Strawberry—but it seems appealing enough.
Although we’ve tried multiple CBD sleep gummies, we were intrigued and pleased to find that these don’t contain melatonin, which causes daytime grogginess for some people. Instead, we aim to determine if the 3 mg CBN dose in Receptra Naturals’ Serious Rest gummies makes any significant difference on sleepless nights.
Receptra Naturals is a family-owned CBD brand that likes to keep a close eye on its vertically-integrated operations. We appreciate that the brand owns and operates their own farm and manufacturing facility, allowing them to carefully monitor quality.
According to the brand, they start with non-GMO hemp plants that are sun-grown and carefully harvested before sent to the manufacturing facility. There, Receptra Naturals uses a unique and underrated extraction process—the ethanol wash. This method was chosen because it extracts potent, whole plant material, leaving the hemp’s molecular structure intact.
Next, the remaining ethanol evaporates away, and the resulting full-spectrum extract is used in every CBD formulation. Receptra Naturals’ designed the Serious Rest CBD Gummy formula with the help of licensed chemists. The gummies contain only natural ingredients, like citric acid, organic cane sugar, lemon oil, pectin, and a full-spectrum blend of cannabinoids. Thanks to this simple formulation, the gummies are vegan-friendly, non-GMO, gluten-free, and corn syrup free.
After manufacturing, Receptra Naturals sends off batch samples for third-party lab testing. Each test result (available on the brand’s website) shows potency information and verifies the absence of mold, heavy metals, pesticides, and other contaminants.
Value/Price of Receptra Naturals CBD + CBN Gummies
With test results reading clean, we think that $54.99, or $0.07 per milligram, is more than fair. Of course, that’s assuming they provide relief and sleep support as promised.
First Hand Review
At first observation, the Receptra Naturals Serious Rest CBD + CBN Gummies are cube-shaped, sugar-coated doses that smell like semi-sweet strawberry candy. We took one dose about an hour before bedtime, as suggested on the label. The taste isn’t quite as “strawberry” as we’d imagined, but the gummies are sweet and palatable, even with the deep hemp flavor shining through.
The effects were not apparent for well over an hour, but the calmness that eventually washed over us was more than enough to help us fall asleep, and more importantly, stay asleep. There was nothing “sedating” about the experience at all, but we did notice a slight euphoria that helped dull the aching in our back and joints.
Ultimately, the gummies positively impacted our sleep experience, but it’s difficult to measure how. Each night we took the gummy, we seemed to sleep more soundly and with less interruption. By the third night, we slept a full seven hours without waking at all.
These gummies’ effects are slight but seem to build over time, helping us feel more and more rested each morning. They may be like a suitable option for gently nudging your sleep routine into place, and they never made us feel groggy or sedated, unlike other sleep gummies we’ve tried before.
These gummies, packed with 25 mg of CBD and 5 mg of CBN, are most appropriate for advanced users comfortable in their CBD dosing routine. However, beginners could still benefit from the CBN formula (perhaps by splitting the dose and working their way up). We’d recommend these Serious Rest gummies to anyone looking to feel more rested, especially those looking to fight daytime grogginess after a poor night’s sleep.
