CBD is found bonded naturally to fats in many organic sources, most notably within a human mother’s breast milk. This allows the P-450 enzyme in the liver to naturally break down CBD to then utilize it within the endocannabinoid system. We replicate this process, in the most organic way we can, through bonding the hemp-derived cannabinoids in MCT Coconut oil. We want your experience using our hemp oil to be easy and accurate!
Full spectrum CBD does, however, bring with it the sticky issue of THC. The government regulates concentration levels of THC at 0.3 percent, an amount which results in minimal psychoactivity. But THC metabolites are stored in the fat cells of your body, building up over time. If you ever need to take a drug test, this could create an issue for you.
We take an extra step. Using advanced chromatography, Calm Hemp Oil is free of THC, while retaining the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that create an entourage effect and may support full-body health. Calm hemp oil comes from premium non-GMO strains of hemp, organically grown in Colorado, USA and is 100% natural, with a refreshing mint taste.
Not to be confused with its botanical cousin marijuana, premium hemp oil is extracted from the hemp plant. While hemp and marijuana share many of the same beneficial compounds—cannabinoids, terpenes, and antioxidant flavonoids—there is one important difference. Hemp has only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound found in high amounts in marijuana, so there is no “high” when taking full spectrum hemp oil, just health benefits.
CBD (cannabidol) is gaining popularity as a hot term in the health and wellness world —and will continue to do so as more people come to understand how beneficial* it can be to the human body. But CBD isn’t the only phytocompound we’re excited about in our Charlotte’s Web hemp extract. That’s because our extract is more than just CBD. Among the beneficial* compounds that come from plants, we have more than 80 of them.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is one of the cannabinoids present in both marijuana and agricultural hemp, and it is the substance responsible for giving a psychoactive effect on the body. It is what gives a user a “high.” The reason why hemp is used over marijuana when creating CBD oil is because of the former’s innate low levels of THC over CBD, making it perfect for CBD oil processing.
So, with all this talk of marijuana and THC and being ‘high’, we typically find the next question to be: IS CBD LEGAL. And, as you are probably well aware, there are several states where CBD extracts from marijuana are legal, there are many more that are not. But, point blank, CBD extracted from hemp, whether singularly or as a full spectrum cannabinoid blend, is legal in all 50 states.
For our review of the best CBD topicals available online, we focused only on companies which make third-party, independent lab results available to consumers. Lab results are available online, included in the order, or on request. It’s vitally important that consumers know exactly what products they’re consuming: how strong it is, and whether it has any impurities. We also focused on brands with fast, friendly customer service and easy to use websites.
Another quality of a good CBD oil is that it is manufactured using the whole plant. CBD Isolates are becoming increasingly popular, but in reality, it is a cheaper material than whole plant extracts. Using the whole plant, rather than using only one part, ensures that the oil contains not just CBD, but also the full range of primary and secondary constituents of the hemp plant. These include terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids that are generally believed to work synergistically with CBD, making the benefits exponentially higher than CBD alone.
I am very impressed with this CBD oil, out of three I’ve tried. Recently injured my neck and/or trapezius muscle with heavy weights. The pain was pretty severe and limited my mobility during the day and my sleep at night, no matter the position. This CBD oil really muted the discomfort and allowed me so much better sleep. I’ll keep using this one. Thank you so much Lazarus for crafting this miracle product and also, for the veterans discount. God bless!
It was previously believed that CBD in its isolated form was more potent and concentrated than full spectrum CBD; however, in 2015, the theory was debunked by a study from the Lautenberg Center for General Tumor Immunology in Jerusalem. In the study, researchers administered full spectrum CBD and CBD isolate to two different groups of mice. When comparing the data of the two groups, the results proved that the group administered with full spectrum CBD were provided with higher levels of relief. Furthermore, the study demonstrated that full spectrum CBD continued to provide relief as the dose increased, while CBD Isolate did not provide the same effect when there was an increase in dosage.
Unfortunately, it’s not always easy for consumers to determine which CBD brands and product claims’ are trustworthy. With the growth in popularity of CBD oil, new brands and merchants are coming out every day with promises to offer you the best, high-quality supplement. However, there are few regulations, if any, to help monitor and regulate these claims.

When looking at isolate, it is important to verify the purity. While many are in the 99.9+% range with no identifiable amounts of THC, there are lower purity ones (such as 99.5% or lower) that may still have trace amounts that show up on the labs. This small amount is typically negligible, and is nowhere near the amount usually found in Full Spectrum products. But it’s still something to be aware of for those seeking the purest they can find.
Every CBD product should make third-party lab results available, either online, in their packaging, or by request. At minimum, each tincture here offers lab results showing the levels of cannabinoids like CBD and THC, while others offer additional tests. The more information available to consumers the better. At the same time, we admit it isn’t always easy for newcomers to interpret these lab tests.
Tetrahydrocannabinol is the most abundant cannabinoid in most medical and recreational marijuana strains. However, in hemp THC is a minor constituent and appears only in trace amounts under 0.3% by dry weight, as required by the U.S. government for hemp products. THC mimics the action of anandamide, a neurotransmitter naturally produced in the human body, and binds to CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system found mostly in the brain. The extremely low levels of THC in hemp make hemp oil non-psychoactive and safe for all ages to use.
I have fibromyalgia and piriformious syndrome (severe hip/leg pain) and for the past six months have been dealing with extreme pain and insomnia. Having exhausted all tricks, remedies, doctors, and medications without relief I decided to try Cbd oil. After only two days I have slept like a baby, had hours of continuous deep sleep, sleep app confirmed this. The Hip/leg pain is dulled, but dulled enough that I can do therapy stretches without screaming or crying. The nerve pain from fibro feels like it is asleep! It is the most amazing thing not to feel every nerve in your body after three years of constant pain. The cbd oil does give me a slight tummy ache after taking it but goes away in about an hour. And I do mean slight ache. So far no side effects or interactions. ( Will up date if do)
I have been a smoker for 20 years. I smoked a pack and a half a day. The biggest problem I had with quitting was the anxiety I had from the withdrawals. I took one dose when it came in the mail this morning, and I haven’t even had a craving all day. My anxiety completely went away, and I’ve been in a great mood since I took it. Thank you for making a great product!!!!!!
