FOR DEEPER SLEEP Mandara Dream Nighttime Gummies

Testers loved the light flavors (watermelon and tart apple), as well as the soporific effects. One said, “I slept well with no interrupti­ons and experience­d no sluggishne­ss the next day.” TO BUY: $80 for 30; mandaracbd.com.

FOR GENERAL ACHES AND PAINS Sunday Scaries CBD Tincture

FOR A MILD AND TASTY TREAT Martha Stewart CBD Wellness Gummies

“Heaven!” one tester declared about the Berry Medley (there’s also a Citrus Medley and a 15-flavor sampler). Though testers agreed that the gummies’ effects were mild, they adored the sophistica­ted taste and texture: “They’re like those French sweets, pâtes de fruits. I’d put these out after a dinner party for a wind-down.” TO BUY: $35 for 30; shopcanopy.com.

FOR A CHILL PILL Plnt CBD Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract + Ashwagandh­a Capsules

The capsules contain trace amounts of THC, but our satisfied tester reported she could pop one and still have her wits about her: “It’s like having a glass of wine without the buzz.” TO BUY: $40 for 30; vitaminsho­ppe.com (not available for delivery in all 50 states).

“It takes the edge off muscle and joint pain for several hours,” said one tester, who appreciate­d the organic hemp, the gentle scent of essential oils, and the womanowned company. TO BUY: $60 for 2 oz.; kindlab.co.

FOR A SOOTHING SOAK Extract Labs Deep CBD Bath Bomb

“They’re almost too pretty to use, but I’m glad I did,” our tester said. “The flower essences turn it into a spa experience.” TO BUY: $16; extractlab­s.com.
