Calm by Wellness is a CBD company based in Irvine, CA. As their name suggests, they specialize in CBD wellness products that are specially formulated to calm and relax. The company chose to focus only on three product categories: tinctures, gummies, and topicals. We think this is a good thing that they are not selling any “gimmicky” products since all you really need to calm down is some good quality CBD.
Now while tinctures take effect faster, some find the taste and sensation unpleasant. This is why CBD also comes as gummies, some of it will get absorbed in your mouth while the rest gets swallowed. This is an acceptable tradeoff considering it’s a more enjoyable way to take CBD. They also have a no-frills selection of topicals. If you read our article about CBD Massages: Do They Really Work? You’ll learn that topicals have their own set of benefits as well.
Transparency is my middle name
At present, the legal status of CBD products in the US is still marked with confusion. This is why a lot of CBD companies don’t put their detailed information on their website. That is not the case with Calm by Wellness.
On their About page, you can find detailed information on where the company is located, their contact information, the experts involved in their work, and most importantly, information on their usage of third-party testing for their products. This kind of transparency is
They even have a return policy and a 30-day risk-free trial period. Seeing this kind of information on a company’s website can be very reassuring to the customer since it means the company is willing to put a face to the name and can back the quality of their products.
Calm down, it’s just CBD
While CBD is well-known for its calming properties, at lower doses it can actually make you more alert and awake.1 We’ve checked out Calm by Wellness’s product lineup and it seems that all of it is specially formulated for relaxation.
One reason why some people prefer to smoke CBD buds is because of the terpenes which give each strain its signature smell. This signature smell and “flavor” can give the user a particular kind of calm that may be different from that of another strain. The nuances provided by terpenes is probably what Calm by Wellness wanted to replicate in their CBD tinctures. They have a total of 5 broad-spectrum CBD oil tincture variants:
- Strawberry Lemon-Aid
- Sleep (Blueberry Lavander)
- Chill (Choco-Mint)
- Focus (Orange Hibiscus)
As you can see, each variant seeks to provide a different kind of “calm” using a specific terpene blend. For example, the Sleep variant aptly uses blueberry, which contains antioxidants known to help with stresses associated with sleep disorders2. Likewise, lavender is well-known for its sleep-inducing properties.
CBD edibles are almost synonymous with gummies. All CBD companies seem to have this ubiquitous CBD treat. But what sets Calm by Wellness’ Gummies is that it’s vegan. If their Focus CBD Oil sounds appealing to you, but you really don’t like taking tinctures, then these vegan gummies are the next best alternative since it has that flavor in addition to strawberry guava.
Calm by Wellness has a good selection of topicals for some of the most basic conditions that call for a topical. There are only 5 products:
As you can see, it is a basic selection and there are no products that overlap in purpose. We think this is a good thing. It looks as if these products seem to be specially formulated to address a specific need and not just an excuse to come up with various CBD products. For example, the Cooling Relief gel and Healing Salve are things that athletes do need and are sold by other brands, albeit without CBD. You can just imagine how much more effective these are than regular brands that don’t have CBD.
The Top 5
If you’re the kind who checks out the reviews of a product before buying, which is smart, then you’ll like this list that we came up for you. Here’s a list of Calm by Wellness’s top 5 products based on ratings and reviews.
- Hemp CBD Oil Tincture – Peppermint (61 reviews)
- Hemp CBD Oil Tincture – Strawberry Lemon-aid (49 reviews)
- Hemp CBD Sleep Oil Tincture (39 reviews)
- Hemp Vegan CBD Gummies (32 reviews)
- Hemp CBD Chill Oil Tincture (18 reviews)
Certificate of analysis
One important thing that customers should check out is the company’s Certificate of Analysis page. If you’re ever in doubt about the quality and composition of this company’s products, this is where you see it. As shown by the certificate from the third-party tester, the oil that Calm by Wellness uses is composed of 91% pure CBD. This level is some of the highest in the industry. As the cannabinoid profile in the CoA shows, the THC levels are even way below the legal limit which is 0.3%. In fact, it’s zero!
It is also extra reassuring that their previous batches of oil contained no bacteria, yeast, mold, heavy metals, and pesticides. This is probably due to the fact that their hemp is organically farmed.
Special notes about Calm by Wellness
One thing you’ll immediately notice is that the company makes a pretty bold claim by calling itself “The most recommended hemp CBD oil in the world.” Not just the USA, take note. But if you check these reviews out, you’ll find that there are, in fact, more than 100 reviewers that put their faces on YouTube to stand by Calm by Wellness’ products. Some even have their videos on their personal channels.
They also have a quiz that helps you find the right CBD product for your needs. This is particularly handy since it helps you get the exact product that you want instead of having to try out a bunch before you get it right.
We like how transparent the company is with their information and how no-frills their products are. It is also a huge plus that they are an ISO 9001 and cGMP certified company and their CBD comes from hemp which is organically grown and sourced from in Oregon, Colorado, and Minnesota. However, the biggest compelling factor for us the availability of third-party testing for their products. The fact that you can see in a CoA that there’s no THC in the product that you’re buying is super important.
One thing that we would have wished to see in the latest report though is an analysis of the bacterial, heavy metals, solvents, and pesticide content of their products like in the previous reports. The presence of any of these can make a huge impact on the safety of the CBD product so we are hoping to see these in the future.
