Kiara has a host of CBD based products that are quite different to your usual product range, containing a mix of ingredients to help with your symptoms, whether you’re looking for a better sleep, pain relief, easing anxiety, skincare or recovery.
The Kiara Deep Sleep and Relax tincture is formulated to maximise the efficacy of CBD for your sleep according to the brand. Read on for my full in-depth review of this intriguing product.
How Much CBD Do You Get?
A full 100ml tincture provides you with 450mg of CBD. While the serving size may vary, in general it states that this works out as 33 servings, which would mean 13.63mg of CBD per serving.
The amount they recommend you consume has been broken down based on what you’re trying to tackle. If you’re just feeling a bit stressed, then they state 1-3 full pipettes should be suitable, whereas if you’re struggling to sleep at night then you might want between 3-10 full pipettes.
Either way, the state you can drop these into a glass of liquid of your choice, whether that’s plain water or juice.
The lab report highlighted that beyond the CBD, this being a full spectrum oil meant that there was a presence of CBC, THC and CBG. As you can imagine, being sold in the UK, there is a presence of THC, but it is clearly under the 0.2% legal limit according to their lab reports.
While the lab report, conducted by CBD-Test, highlighted the cannabinoid breakdown, it didn’t show the pesticide report which I’m always keen to see, to ensure there are none present. The same can be said for heavy metals.
What Other Ingredients Are Included?
Stating this is a sleep and relax formula, you couldn’t just include CBD oil (well, you could, but this is a product standing out in the crowd, so has included a number of great ingredients).
Beyond the CBD extract, the other ingredients included water, alcohol (40%), vegetable glycerin, valeriana officinalis, humulus lupulus and ziziphus jujube.
It should also be stated that this is a highly concentrated formula, with a 1:3 ratio of 1 part pure plants and 3 parts liquid, so it is a relatively thick liquid.
I also found it very interesting to read that it is GMP certified. It’s produced under pharmaceutical control, made in an FDA approved facility. It’s naturally grown, cruelty free and uses kosher facilities.
Why Include Humulus Lupulus?
This ingredient might have a bizarre name, but you might better know it as the hops included in beers, from the hemp family.
Humulus lupulus has shown early promise in a number of studies to help people sleep and ease anxiety, but what is equally important is it has been shown to enhance results if combined with valerian, which is present in this formula.
Being a sedative plant, it’s inevitably become a tool used to tackle insomnia and other related sleep disorders.
Why Include Valeriana Officinalis?
Also known as valerian (albeit this is one of 250 valerian species), this ingredient is often taken a couple of hours before going to bed as a great supplement for reducing the length of time it takes to fall asleep, which is often the biggest struggle when it comes to having a good night of rest.
Most clinical studies have only shown a small improvement, being an extra hour of rest, but personally that one hour can make such a huge different between being energetic and exhausted all day!
This ingredient has been used for centuries to help ease anxiety and cure insomnia, so its presence in this formula is paramount.
Why Include Zizyphus Jujube?
You might better known this ingredient as the jujube red date, the tree grows very quickly, found most commonly in China, hence why it has been present in Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years!
The list of benefits to this plant extract is lengthy, but the most impressive all circulate around its ability to soothe your mind and calm neural activity in the brain and help you to fall asleep. While most studies have been performed on mice, the results were unquestionable!
This ingredient can also help to treat high blood pressure, inflammation and digestive disorders, so it should be a common ingredient in your kitchen where possible.
How Long Will It Last?
I couldn’t spot an expiry date on the bottle, but it does state that you should use it within 6 months of opening the bottle. On that note, it doesn’t state you should keep it in a fridge, just that you should keep it out of direct sunlight.
In regards to the actual amount of time this bottle will last, it states 33 servings (on average), therefore if you were to use it every single day you would get just over a months use. Personally, I don’t tend to use products over the weekend, which writes off 2 days, therefore this should last around 6.6 weeks for me.
Where Can I Buy This From?
