Seabedee (pronounced as CBD) provides its customers with cannabidiol (CBD) supplements that promise to enhance their health. Its CBD blends are said to contain terpenes, allowing the formula to target aches, inflammation, sleep issues, and unwanted anxiety.
Each American-made product is free of soy, yeast, sugar, and chemicals. The company also states that each contains 500 mg of Full-spectrum CBD, and 0.3% of THC or less, and that all are lab tested.
Before hopping into my own personal review, it’s important to begin with the products’ test results, which are provided by a third party — Infinite Chemical Analysis, LLC.
Seabedee states that their lightweight oils are enriched with terpenes like linalool and limonene, 500 mg of CBD, and 75 mg of CBG and CBN (two cannabinoids that cooperate with CBD).
However, the test results for the Calming and Sleep Blends reveal that they actually contain more — specifically between 35-50 mg more of CBD per container, respectively. Likewise, the Muscle and Joint Relief Cream contains 365 mg CBD per unit, instead of 500 mg of CBD it promotes on its label.
Seabede also states that their Muscle and Joint Relief Cream contains full-spectrum CBD. According to Weed Maps, full-spectrum products have different plant compounds in them, including cannabinoids like CBD and THC, and terpenes..
However, the cream’s test results confirm it contains just one other cannabinoid — CBG — and no terpenes. This begs the question as to whether this formula contains the full-spectrum of plant-compounds it promises.
That said, here are some of Seabedee’s products that met my expectations:
$57.95 for 1 ounce
The Calming Blend contains ingredients that help clear the mind, eliminate anxiety, and relax your nerves. It just allows your day to go smoother without any unwanted anxiety. It includes linalool, which is responsible for the sedating effect.
Research shows that linanool is incredibly soothing. One study, for instance, which used linalool to observe the central nervous system, found that the terpene decreases mobility and calms mammals down by 60% compared to 40 other extracts.
After several dropfuls, the product did what it said it would do. I found myself calming down and focusing on tasks that were long and unexciting.
This oil was lightweight, as advertised. It tasted flowery. The flavor was very subtle and soft, which left my mouth watery.
The scent is rich and complicated. The combined aroma from various terpenes provides the distinctive and delightful smell of cannabis for cannabis lovers. The linalool gave it a woody lavender aroma, which was followed by an earthy, planty smell — similar to when you rub a leaf between your fingers while hiking on a warm, damp morning during the summer. Finally, one with a strong sense of smell can identify a very faint scent of citrus.
At $57.95 for 1 fluid ounce, I find this product is priced higher than average.
$57.95 per bottle
This blend also promoted relaxation to induce a night of deep, restorative sleep. Similar to the previous serum, the CBD Sleep Blend contains linalool. But this blend also contains another terpene, myrcene.
According to research published in the journal, Nutraceuticals, myrcene is also a sedative. Having two sedative terpenes in this blend allows users to have an undisruptive night of sleep, resulting in a better morning.
From the first time I used it, I found a significant change in my sleep habits. Usually, it takes me several hours to fall asleep. However, the blend has cleared my mind and allowed me to get to sleep faster.
These products are very simple to use: fill the dropper to 0.25 ml, empty it under the tongue and leave it there for 30 seconds, and then swallow. Users can increase their dosage according to the chart and the instructions — and their own tolerance level.
At $57.95 per bottle, I found this is a bit more fairly priced, considering its efficacy.
$49.95 per bottle
The formula, like its name suggests, is a cooling cream that helps relieve inflammation and joint aches. The oils swiftly absorb through the skin targeting sore muscles.
It has a strong and relaxing fragrance, similar to Vicks VapoRub. It is enriched with avocado oil, shea butter, and sweet almond oil — all ingredients that moisturize the skin. The formula also includes another ingredient, Menthol, which is present to cool down the inflammation on joints.
Using this product helped with my joint aches for a few minutes. The cooling effect it provides has helped to calm down the pain I get on my left wrist. However, after about 30 minutes, the pain started to reappear.
Each bottle costs $49.95, which I found a little steep for an infused relief cream — especially that must be reapplied frequently.
