Although Colorado’s Slumber CBN focuses on products for sleep, it also sells other formulas, including regular full-spectrum CBD and CBG. We tested its deep Zzzs, CBG, and afternoon delight gummies with mixed results.
Slumber CBN is a solid choice for both night and daytime CBD products. But it has room to improve before we consider it a top-tier CBD brand.
- Good product variety
- Several innovative products
- Backed by research studies

Slumber CBN Overview
Slumber CBN, or simply Slumber, is a CBD company focusing on sleep aids. Its most popular offerings are rich in cannabinol (CBN), the minor cannabinoid touted to promote sleep.
Slumber was founded in 2019 in Colorado by chemical engineer Rich Barnes and has grown into a popular CBD brand. The company is also unique for conducting research studies of its products.
For example, in a study of its deep Zzz gummies, participants were asked to rate their sleep quality over seven days without the gummies and another 21 days while using them. The study reported significant improvement in sleep quality and duration.
- Hemp: cannabis variety with high CBD and low THC levels (no more than 0.3%).
- Terpenes: aromatic plant compounds with various beneficial properties (1).
- Minor cannabinoids: CBN, CBG, CBC, and other beneficial cannabinoids found in smaller amounts in hemp. They may work in synergy with CBD.
- Full-spectrum: whole-plant hemp extract containing multiple cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. This form of CBD is about four times more potent than pure CBD (2).
- Broad-spectrum: whole-plant hemp extract similar to full-spectrum CBD, but with THC removed (may contain trace amounts).
- CBD isolate: pure CBD without any other hemp compounds.
Slumber CBN CBD Product Lineup
Slumber started out with CBN-only products but has since expanded into full-spectrum CBD oil, CBG gummies, and THCV/CBG oil.
For this review, Slumber sent us their deep Zzzs, CBG, and CBD/THC/CBG gummies. You can see Antonio’s thoughts below.
|Cost per mg
|Full-spectrum & isolate
Slumber sells four different gummy formulas:
- Deep Zzzs sleep gummies with 25 mg CBD/3 mg THC/8 mg CBN
- Pure CBN (15 mg) gummies
- Afternoon delight gummies with 30 mg CBD/10 mg CBG/5 mg THC
- Focus + Drive CBG gummies (30 mg)
I’m a fan of the high strengths and innovative mixes of multiple cannabinoids. I also like the vegan, quality ingredients, like tapioca syrup, instead of the less healthy corn syrup and natural flavors and colors.
Antonio’s experience: Antonio tested the deep Zzzs, CBG, and afternoon delight gummies:
- The CBG didn’t provide the advertised focus and drive effects. I took 2-4 gummies on different mornings and didn’t feel much, except a mild energy boost from 4 gummies. But I did like the flavor and ingredients.
- I took 4 afternoon delight gummies. After 45 minutes, I felt relaxed and calm with a pleasing body sensation and a slight head buzz. I also felt dry eyes, mouth, and munchies which are common with THC. The effects lasted for ~4 hours. Overall, I enjoyed the effects and flavor.
- I took 3 deep Zzzs gummies on three separate nights and tracked my sleep with an Apple watch. The gummies did induce sleepiness about an hour after consumption, but they didn’t improve sleep quality. My watch actually recorded fewer hours of deep and REM sleep. I also woke up in the middle of the night with extreme dry mouth and had to get water. The flavor was just average for me.
|Cost per mg
|Full-spectrum & isolate
Slumber’s CBD oils come in five formulas:
- Full-spectrum CBD tincture (2000 mg)
- Pure CBN tincture in three strengths (150-600 mg)
- Full-spectrum CBD + CBN tincture (500-2000 mg)
- CBD + CBG 1:1 tincture (1500 mg)
- THCV + CBG 1:1 tincture (900 mg). THCV is a minor cannabinoid touted for its ability to suppress appetite and boost energy levels.
I like the variety and the innovation, especially with the THCV tincture. Also, the regular full-spec oil shows 10-14.9% minor cannabinoids on third-party tests, which is impressive.
But the pure CBN tincture is too weak; I would either get rid of it entirely or raise the potency.
|Cost per mg
Slumber’s vegan softgels contain 5 mg of pure CBN without any other ingredients. In my humble opinion, the strength of these softgels is way too low, especially since they contain a single pure cannabinoid. They’re also rather expensive for what you’re getting.
CBD+CBN Relief Stick
|2.6 oz (73 g)
|Cost per mg
Designed for topical relief, this topical combines CBD and CBN for about 1000 mg cannabinoids in total. It also contains standard pain-relieving ingredients like menthol.
Although Slumber claims this product is full-spectrum, third-party tests only show pure CBD and CBN. So it looks more like a combination of two isolates.
Pet CBD Oil
|Cost per mg
Slumber’s CBD oil for cats and dogs is flavored with chicken and combines full-spectrum CBD with added CBN. I like the formula and flavor, but larger dog breeds need at least one more strength.
Price & Value
Here’s how much you’re paying per mg with Slumber:
- Gummies: 4-13 cents per mg of cannabinoids
- CBD oil: 3-23 cents per mg
- Capsules: 20-27 cents per mg
- Topicals: 3 cents per mg
- Pet products: 8 cents per mg
The higher-potency CBD oils and gummies cost significantly less than the market average. Meanwhile, most weaker products, like the CBN capsules and pure CBN gummies, are somewhat expensive.
You can also subscribe for monthly deliveries for 30% off and free shipping. All in all, you’re getting pretty good value with Slumber. I recommend sticking to the more potent products to get more bang for your buck.
Hemp Source and Production Process
Slumber uses local, organic Colorado-grown hemp to make its products. The hemp is extracted using CO2 (carbon dioxide), the leading CBD extraction method.
It would be nice to know more details, like how the hemp is grown and how the crude CBD extract is refined.
Slumber sends its products for third-party testing to SC Labs, one of the premiere hemp & cannabis testing labs in the US.
The tests check the potency (how much CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids are present).
Third-Party Test Results
I always look at third-party lab test results to confirm that CBD companies sell safe, accurate, and effective products. Specifically, I check for:
- CBD content, which should be within 10% of the label (3)
- The levels of THC and minor cannabinoids like CBG and CBN
- Terpene content (if tested)
- Whether the CBD type (full, broad-spectrum, or isolate) is accurate
- Whether there are any contaminants
I looked at the latest certificates of analysis (CoA) for Slumber’s products. I only found issues with a few tests.
For example, the test for the relief stick didn’t find THC or any other cannabinoids besides CBD and CBN. That looks more like an isolate rather than a full-spectrum formula.
But on the whole, the tests are up-to-date and show that the products are accurate. I added two screenshots of third-party CoAs above to give you a more detailed look:
- The 2000 mg full-spectrum CBD oil CoA found roughly 1800 mg of CBD, which is within 10% of the label, and 10% minor cannabinoids, which is a good result.
- The deep Zzz gummies CoA found 27.8 mg CBD/8.1 mg CBN/2.7 mg THC, which is close to the 30 mg/8 mg/3 mg advertised on the label. The test also found small amounts of two other cannabinoids, which is good to see.
Shipping & Returns
Slumber offers free US shipping on orders over $75. It has a standard 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so you can return products for a refund within that timeframe as long as you’re a first-time customer and bought directly from the website.
Customer Service & Reputation
Slumber has hundreds of mostly satisfied customer reviews on its website. It’s also nice that the company is transparent about its team, revealing their identities and backgrounds.
Having said that, Slumber lacks the reputation of established brands.
Our Verdict: Solid Company A Few Steps Away From Top-Tier
Slumber is a solid CBD brand. While its main focus is sleep, it also offers CBD products for other goals, like general health, daytime energy, and even appetite suppression.
Although we had mixed results with its gummies, we still feel they’re fairly effective products thanks to the multi-cannabinoid formulas and quality ingredients.
But it does have some things to work on before being considered a leading CBD vendor:
- Post third-party contaminant tests
- Offer greater strengths and full-spectrum options for some products, like the softgels
- Provide more details about its production process
