We’ve tried and tested nearly all of Medterras products and have yet to find something we didn’t like.
Even with high expectations, these tablets didn’t let us down. They combine a simple synergistic blend of CBD and the sleep hormone, melatonin, to support the process of falling asleep and staying asleep through the night. Medterra got this one just right.
At 25 mg of CBD, and 10 mg melatonin, this is one of the stronger sleeping supplements we’ve seen in the CBD category. Some of us even find it only takes about half a tablet to produce the effects we were looking for.
Long story short, this is one of our top-rated supplements for supporting sleep. We recommend keeping a bottle of this stuff around for those nights spent tossing and turning or taking it along on international trips where jetlag is likely to be a problem.
These tablets come at an incredible value overall. One of the best metrics to compare the price of different CBD supplements is the cost for every milligram of CBD included in the formula. For this particular product, this cost is around $0.07. For comparison, most CBD capsules of this quality are closer to $0.12 per mg of CBD.
At 25 milligrams of CBD per tablet, these are on the high-end of the spectrum.
Additionally, these tablets are designed for sublingual absorption, which both improves the onset of effects and the amount of CBD and melatonin absorbed by the body — making them even stronger than comparable products in their category.
Medterra is one of the few companies that grows its own hemp. This gives the company the ability to exert strict control over the way its hemp is grown, stored, and processed.
The brand prefers to use organic farming practices and test each batch after harvest and after it’s converted into the final product. Medterra uses unbiased third-party labs to conduct this testing fairly and post the results publicly on its website.
The only way Medterra could score higher in this category is by achieving USDA certified organic status — something we hope to see in the near future.
This product has one specific purpose in mind and provides both the dose and formula to back it up.
At 25 mg of CBD, and 10 mg of melatonin, along with a rapidly absorbing tablet this product is perfectly suited as a sleeping supplement.
This product only comes in one variation — a 30 capsule bottle with 25 mg CBD and 10 mg melatonin per tablet.
Although we’d love to see larger bottle sizes, it may not be necessary. The price of these tablets are already below average, so there’s no need to offer larger bottle sizes to cut costs. If you want more than a month supply, you can simply order a few bottles.
The formula used to make these products is the best selling point of this product. As you’ll find from reading this review, we truly love the formula Medterra put together to make this product. It combines the delicate and complex synergy of CBD and melatonin with a rapidly dissolving tablet base to provide the effects of these compounds as quickly as possible.
Medterra CBD, LLC is a privately-held company based out of Laguna Hills, California. It was founded in 2017 and have quickly become one of the premier CBD manufacturers operating out of the United States.
Medterra makes a number of CBD products in
different categories — including topicals, capsules, tablets, tinctures, and
gels. Some of its products contain simple CBD extracts, while others (like
these CBD + Melatonin Dissolvable Sleep Tablets ) are formulated for a specific
All Medterra products are made using its
proprietary blend of broad-spectrum CBD. It’s made by isolating each
cannabinoid from hemp and recombining them in specific ratios along with other
compounds such as aromatic terpenes.
This allows the company to produce products
that act like a full-spectrum extract, but it allows the company to guarantee
these products to be free of the psychoactive cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol
Who Should Consider Using CBD + Melatonin Dissolvable Sleep Tablets?
These tablets are specifically designed to
help people get to sleep. It may be useful for people with irregular sleeping
patterns, travelers experiencing jet lag, and people experiencing chronic
stress keeping them up at night.
For best results, we recommend taking these tablets along with some simple lifestyle changes as well:
Follow regular sleeping patterns
Avoid eating large meals within 2 hours of going to bed
Practice winding down in the evenings to prepare the mind for sleep
Avoid any and all computer or phone screens for at least an hour before bed
Exercise during the day
Eat a healthy balanced diet
Visit a doctor if insomnia lasts for more than a few days at a time
One of the best points about this supplement
is the cost. Medterra is a large company and therefore has the ability to buy
its hemp in massive quantities — ultimately reducing the cost to manufacture
A bottle of these tablets costs $55.99 and
includes about 30 tablets. These tablets are designed to be taken in increments
of either half a tablet or 1 full tablet per day — which means that each bottle
will last about 1–2 months.
brings the cost per tablet to around $1.86 — about the cost of a cup of tea.
CBD supplements are expensive, especially if
you want something with any real quality. This formula is impressive, so the
cost of the CBD is going to be slightly higher than average. However, the value
is incredibly high.
If you were to go out and buy sleeping
tablets, you’re going to spend the same or more whether you buy pharmaceutical
sleeping pills or other herbal supplements.
Melatonin alone is much cheaper, but it isn’t
going to be nearly as effective as this CBD and melatonin combination.
These tablets are also cheaper than a lot of
other CBD tablets or capsules on the market.
One metric we like to use to compare products
is determining the cost per milligram of CBD. These tablets clock in around
$0.07, which is well below the industry average of about $0.12. Some capsules
on the market cost as much as $0.18 per mg of CBD.
these tablets come at an incredible value.
Cost Breakdown of Medterra CBD +
Melatonin Dissolvable Sleep Tablets
One of the best factors that make Medterra
stand out above the competition is its hemp source.
Medterra plays a big role in the cultivation
of the hemp used in its products by owning and operating a series of farms in
Kentucky, USA. This allows them to be a true “seed to bottle” manufacturer — It
can oversee the entire process from growing, to extraction, to bottling.
This allows the company to keep tight control
over the quality of its products.
This is contrasted by most of the other CBD
manufacturers on the market that buys their hemp from outside farms. This works
fine in most cases but makes it difficult for the company to control what
happens to the hemp before it ends up in their labs.
The only area we believe Medterra could
improve its hemp source even further is through obtaining USDA certified
organic status — something that’s only recently become a real possibility
thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill.
We can’t give the company too much flack for
this because almost nobody in the United States has actually achieved certified
organic status to date — but we hope to see Medterra achieve this in the near
future to make its hemp truly bulletproof in terms of quality in our books.
These CBD + Melatonin Dissolvable Sleep
Tablets earn full points in this category.
They’re designed with a specific purpose in
mind and have been specially formulated to excel at sleep support.
We love seeing products that have formulated
with synergistic ingredients to do the job to the fullest extent possible.
Of course, CBD is a good sleep supplement, but on its own, it lacks depth. Combining the supplement with other ingredients that support this focus makes the results significantly more pronounced.
Well done on this one, Medterra.
Medterra’s Shipping & Return Policy
Medterra ships internationally — at a cost.
Depending on where you are in the world, you’ll likely have to pay an
additional shipping fee to have these products shipped from the United States.
However, these supplements are small, and the
rates are seldom more than $15 per order.
mind that this formula contains melatonin, which is considered
prescription-only in countries like Australia and New Zealand. We don’t recommend ordering these products if you live in either of
these countries, as Medterra won’t provide a refund for orders confiscated at
Additionally, if you live in Canada, you won’t
be able to order anything from this company either. The Canadian government recently legalized cannabis but keeps tight
control over the sale of oral supplements. These laws are scheduled to
change at the end of 2019, but no specific information on what these changes
involve has been released.
Final Verdict: A Simple And
Effective CBD Sleep Support Supplement
These tablets have a relatively simple formula
of CBD and melatonin — two compounds that work together to support both the
onset and maintenance of sleep.
At 25 mg of CBD and 10 mg of melatonin, you’ll
likely only need one or half of one tablet to get the job done. We recommend
starting at the low end of 1/2 a tablet and working your way up to a full tab
after a few days to see how it affects your body individually.
These tablets are unique in that they’re designed to dissolve beneath the tongue — releasing the active ingredients along with a pleasant spearmint flavor. Under the tongue, they’re absorbed by thousands of tiny capillaries into the bloodstream — producing significantly faster onset of effects (5-15 minutes compared to 30-45 minutes when swallowed).
For best results, we recommend combining this supplement with other lifestyle changes to support a healthy night’s sleep. The best solution to sleeping problems is a multifaceted approach — focus on winding down before bed, avoid screens or electronics in the evening, eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and practice regular sleeping patterns.
