About Flower of Life CBD

Flower of Life (or FOLCBD for short) is based in San Clemente, CA. It has been a leading brand in the CBD industry since 2017, boasting a wide array of product offerings such as topicals, tinctures, edibles, vape cartridges, and more. 

As you may be able to guess from the name, the company’s mission is to share the healing powers of the eponymous hemp flower with the world. How? By creating the highest quality hemp CBD products. 

I’ve reviewed several Flower of Life products in the past, including the regular (no melatonin) CBD gummies, a full-spectrum CBD tincture (for people), and the CBD Freeze Roll-On for pain relief. So, I am quite familiar with their products.

This time around, the company sent over its new CBD Sleep Gummy Bears and all-natural CBD Pet Tincture for me to try out.

Flower of Life CBD Sleep Gummy Bears Review

CBD sleep aid gummies

Flower of Life’s CBD Sleep Gummy Bears come in a resealable package that features a starry night sky with FOLCBD’s colorful logo front and center. The baggie contains 10 strawberry-flavored gummies featuring 25mg of broad-spectrum hemp CBD, some CBN, and 1mg of melatonin per gummy. 

Also, as stated on the packaging, these non-psychoactive CBD gummies are organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, and handmade.

First Impressions of the Flower of Life CBD Sleep Gummy Bears

To test out the effect of these sleep aid gummies, I ate one right after dinner⁠. The taste was classic strawberry, and it was definitely sweet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. I chewed it rather quickly, which I almost regret doing. Because of the pleasant taste, what I really wanted to do was savor the gummy like a lozenge.

Flower of Life prides itself on using all-natural, organic ingredients. This means there’s no high fructose corn syrup here⁠—just organic pure cane sugar and organic tapioca syrup.

What Does It Feel Like?

It was a little earlier than I’d typically want to take melatonin, but I could already feel my brain gently nudging me to go to sleep. And since I had nothing better to do, plus it’s wintertime and it gets dark well before 6PM, I quickly succumbed.

I ended up sleeping from 7PM to 7AM for the first time in years.

The next day, I woke up before my alarm, and even though it was a weekday, it felt like a Saturday morning. There’s something blissful about the sleep you get on weekends that you just can’t get on hectic weekdays⁠. But with these gummies, I felt that same blissful rest that I previously only ever experienced on laidback weekends.

I ended up eating a CBD gummy a little later on subsequent nights, and the sleep quality was just as good.

Flower of Life CBD Pet Tincture Review


First Impressions of the Flower of Life Pet CBD Tincture

Flower of Life’s CBD Pet Tincture comes in a light-colored box featuring the same geometric design as the brand’s logo. Inside the box are a 60ml glass bottle (which does not have a dropper top) and an included oral application syringe. 

Unlike made-for-human tinctures, this CBD pet tincture uses olive oil as the base.

I got permission to try the CBD tincture on my girlfriend’s cat, who weighs a little over 10 pounds. The vet had previously recommended that she try CBD to see if it could help with her cat’s yowling and aggressiveness, so we were good to go. 

I followed the usage guidelines and measured out 1ml of the tincture using the oral syringe and administered the CBD straight into the cat's mouth.

You can also add a dose to their food if oral administration is too difficult.

How Did It Affect the Animal?

The cat usually has anxiety issues, and most people would refer to him as “chatty⁠”—especially when something causes him anxiety. The main culprit most of the time? Change. Putting a jacket on his favorite seat can lead to a session of sprints around the apartment.

Within an hour, though, the sprints subsided and the napping began.

While I was only able to observe mental and behavioral changes, I imagine this tincture would be very effective for an older pet with physical symptoms of inflammation. It’s easy to notice when a feisty cat’s behavior has changed, but it’s even easier to notice when a dog becomes as active as it was five years ago. 

I like that there are these specially formulated products for our furry friends to be able to activate their endocannabinoid system for good.

Effectiveness: 4.6/5
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 4.8/5

Flower of Life uses CBD isolate or broad-spectrum hemp extract in these products. There is no THC present, which means no psychoactive effects. This is an important distinction that sets the company’s products apart from its competitors.
