Update (2022): VaporBoost is no longer in business but there are other options if you’re still looking for something like this. Full Body Zen sells a melatonin e-juice and Epuffer sells a valerian root e-juice for sleep. And these days, CBD is so common and easy to find that many people have switched to vaping CBD instead of melatonin.
VaporBoost Sweet Dreams E-Juice
I purchased VaporBoost’s Sweet Dreams E-Juice a couple of months ago and I’ve been using it regularly most nights before bed.
Check out my video review.
This e-juice contains zero nicotine because nicotine is a stimulant that isn’t helpful for sleep. The main ingredients in Sweet Dreams are melatonin, L-theanine, passionflower, chai, & earl grey, all of which are great for promoting sleep.
How Does It Taste?
The earl grey, chai, and passionflower ingredients make Sweet Dreams taste just like you’re vaping tea. It’s actually very nice. There’s no throat hit since it doesn’t have nicotine and it’s very smooth and relaxing on both the inhale and exhale.
How Does It Work?
Let’s take a look at how VaporBoost describes their e-juice and then a quick look at how each of the ingredients work.
Sounds good, right?
So what do each of these ingredients actually do?
Melatonin – Melatonin is a hormone that helps to set the brain’s biological clock and brings balance to our circadian rhythms. It’s naturally secreted by the body in darkness. When we are exposed to light, the secretion of melatonin is inhibited. When we stay up late at night or watch TV before bed, we are disrupting this important hormone, but supplementation, in the form of melatonin ejuice in this case, can help restore our bodies to natural levels. Vaping melatonin is a lot more enjoyable than taking a pill!
L-theanine – L-theanine is extracted from tea leaves and is generally used for its stress relief and relaxing effects. L-theanine does not cause drowsiness.
Passionflower – Passionflower is most commonly used today to treat anxiety and insomnia. For insomnia, it works by boosting levels of GABA, which is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter of our central nervous system, basically meaning it reduces brain activity. The benefits of passionflower are short-term, so it’s helpful for getting to sleep as opposed to staying asleep.
Earl Grey – The main ingredient of Earl Grey tea is bergamot, which comes from the peel of the bergamot orange. Bergamot is believed to have a refreshing, uplifting, and calming effect.
Does It Really Work?
My results are purely anecdotal, so take them at face value. I used Sweet Dreams sleep e-juice off and on to see if my sleep was impacted in any way, and while the results were subtle, I seemed to sleep much better when using it regularly. I fall asleep faster, I wake up less frequently, I sleep longer and I wake up feeling more rested.
Based on my own experience and from the experiences of others I’ve read online, I’d say that this sleep e-liquid works.
VaporBoost also sells a “Booster” version of this e-liquid, which is NOT a ready-to-vape e-juice, but instead a booster juice that you add to existing e-juices to make any e-juice a sleep e-juice (zero nicotine only!). You can add a few drops to your e-juice of choice and it’ll work the same way as Sweet Dreams does but using the flavors you enjoy most.
Final Verdict: Buy It
