Calm Extra Strength

CBD Calm+: Our Calm+ formula has everything that there is to love about our original Calm formula but with double the amount of CBD. We recommend the Calm CBD blend for those who typically suffer from anxiety, difficulty with sleep, or trouble relaxing. Lavender essential oil and Bergamot essential oil work together synergistically with CBD by promoting a calming effect. Essential oils with CBD aid in the over all bioavailability of CBD due to the increased presence of terpenes.

Attention! CBD Calm+ has been reformulated to increase its therapeutic benefits through the addition of extracts, essential oils, and carrier oils. We recently upgraded the formulation to include Black Cumin, a CO2 extract that contains thymoquinine which has been used traditionally to treat chronic inflammatory diseases such as asthma, eczema and bronchitis. It has been extensively studied in view of its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory activity.




Product Description

Our CBD Calm Extra Strength contains full-spectrum CBD CO2 extract, Hemp essential oil, Bulgarian Lavender essential oil, Bergamot essential oil, and Black Cumin CO2 all based in MCT Coconut oil.

Our extra strength formula contains 1mg CBD per drop. 5ml contains 200mg CBD, 15ml contains 600mg, 30ml contains 1,200mg CBD, and 100ml contains 4,000mg CBD.

At Ananda Apothecary, we guarantee the highest possible quality of cannabidiol extract in our oils being a full spectrum CO2 extraction from local Colorado hemp growers. In contrast to the psychoactive THC compound, CBD is non-intoxicating and renders a myriad of benefits which range from systemic anti-inflammatory effects to anxiety relief. Paradoxically, CBD has even been employed in the treatment of diseases which manifest psychosis, like dementia and schizophrenia [1, 2].

CBD also boasts a potent antioxidant activity – even more so than over the counter supplements and naturally occurring compounds, like Vitamin C and E! It sweeps up free radicals (also known as reactive oxidative species) which have been implicated in a plethora of chronic degenerative and inflammatory diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, atherosclerosis, and acne [3, 4].

Unlike other CBD extracts on the market, Ananda's CBD Calm utilizes a full spectrum CBD extraction that not only contains refined CBD in addition to trace amounts of other cannabinoids. There are over 400 identified cannabinoids found in hemp  whose roles have yet to be defined by molecular researchers. This implies that consumers of CBD Calm benefit from the whole plant, as opposed to just one compound out of 400.

CBD Calm – Naturally Relaxing
CBD Calm offers additional support from five carefully chosen oils alongside the full-spectrum CBD extract – hemp essential oil, bulgarian lavender essential oil, bergamot essential oil, black cumin extract, and medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) coconut oil.

Hemp essential oil is a complex extract which is comprised of extremely beneficial compounds such as limonene, terpinolene, and caryophyllene – these have been extensively studied and confer relaxant and anti-microbial effects on the user [5]. Research has highlighted these compounds to have exhibited antimicrobial effects against “superbugs” such as Enterococcus faecium and Clostridium botulinum – an additional benefit that is extremely relevant today in view of the multi-drug resistant bacteria crisis that has emerged because of rampant antibiotic abuse [6].

Black cumin (also known as Nigella sativa) contains thymoquinine which has been used traditionally to treat chronic inflammatory diseases, similar to asthma, eczema, and bronchitis. It has been extensively studied in view of its analgesic (pain-relieving) and anti-inflammatory activity. Furthermore, it has been shown to have antimicrobial and hepatoprotective (liver protecting) properties in several clinical trials. Indeed, one review in 2017 concluded that black cumin’s “hypoglycaemic, hypolipidemic and bronchodilatory effects, have been sufficiently studied and are sufficiently understood to allow for the next phase of clinical trials or drug developments” [7].

Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) has been widely praised since time, immemorial for its antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and even anti-tumor effects [8, 9]. For this reason alone, rosemary is the ideal candidate for a natural preservative in CBD Calm. The phenolic compounds in rosemary which are antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antioxidant in nature, prevent the contamination, oxidation or spoilage of the CBD Calm essential oil [10].

A recent study entitled Essential oil of lavender an anxiety disorders: Ready for prime time? was published in 2017 in The Mental Health Clinician – a peer-reviewed and respected scientific journal. In the study, the researchers elucidate the mechanism of action of lavender essential oils in their positive neurological effects – lavender stimulates the olfactory bulb (a group of nerves responsible for the sense of smell) which has inputs into the amygdala and hippocampus; areas of the brain which are associated with emotional regulation and memory respectively. Two of the primary constituents of lavender essential oil – linalool and linalyl acetate have also been shown to potentiate the parasympathetic nervous system – the antithesis to the sympathetic or ‘fight or flight’ nervous system, thereby inducing feelings of relaxation and well-being [11].

While MCT coconut oil is used in CBD Calm as an emulsifying agent, we would be remiss not to inform you of its health benefits. MCT coconut oil has shown systemic cardiovascular benefits in the form of its lipid-lowering effects. This is extremely relevant for patients who have documented coronary heart disease, peripheral arterial disease or even elevated levels of cholesterol (hyperlipidaemia). Even in healthy users, MCT coconut oil has shown improved metabolism and exercise endurance. Although most studies have been conducted in regard to the oral ingestion of MCT coconut oil, it would not be unreasonable to assume that MCT  would confer the same benefits over time [12].

CBD Calm is much more than a relaxing and soothing formula. The 6 ingredients which have been extracted and blended confer anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, antioxidant, and anxiolytic properties during aromatherapy. The newly recognized relaxant properties of lavender and bergamot are harmoniously complemented by the positive neurological effects of CBD extract and elevate one’s sense of overall well-being.


Dosage Discussion: We formulated all sizes of our CBD+ line to be 2mg of CBD every 2 Drops (dropper included). We recommend plus line for person's who generally take a larger dose of CBD. Keep in mind 5 drops is 10mg of CBD. You can start with as low as 5-10mg two times daily and increase or decrease your dose as you see fit.

Keep in mind that since this is double strength, the dosage is different compared to our other formulas! We understand that each individual is unique, please test your response as you would with any new product. This double strength formula may need new navigation for dosing and frequency for some.

Remember everyone's body reacts differently and some may need more or less CBD to target the problem. For even more information check out the CBD information in our drop down menu below.

Use and Serving Size

Use and Serving Size: Shake well before using. The amount of CBD oil that people take on a daily basis can vary greatly. We encourage our customers to experiment with their intake, and do their own research for optimal intake for their specific needs. CBD oil can be ingested morning or night, on an empty or full stomach.
Note that cannabinoid compounds have 'biphasic' properties, whereby small doses and high doses of the same substance can produce opposite effects. CBD has no known adverse side effects at any dose, but 'too much,' while not harmful, could be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose.
