Finally: A Simple Solution For Stress, When Nothing Else Worked*

I'm no stranger to stress. I worked on Wall Street for five years and was an equities trader during the aftermath of 9/11. I worked through the recession of 2008, too. But, to be honest, the stress inputs these days are at an all-time high. 

Part of it is global: Despite progress made against the pandemic, we're all going through a time of unprecedented uncertainty. And personally, I'm in a different place now than I was at those other times of stress: I'm not only mindbodygreen's founder and co-CEO; I'm also a father of two little girls.

Over the years, I've learned a bit about stress management and have successfully coped during the different ups and downs of building a business. I'm a big walker and try to take long strolls with my family in our local park as much as possible. Along with a few minutes of yoga and practicing gratitude every day, I'm also a big believer in breathwork.

But this time is different. Not only is it harder to find the time to go on long walks, but even simple tools like yoga and meditation are challenging with all four of us at home together. None of my usual tricks were working—until calm+.*

My review of calm+.

I personally worked for years with scientists to develop and rigorously test our newly renovated calm+ formula. I didn't want it to just be any old hemp product, and I definitely did not want something that would potentially make me drowsy or high.

I also didn't want a product that would be sedating—staying sharp and active is critical to managing life for my family and the company. We set out to develop a solution that would work with—not override—our bodies' own systems to handle and cope with stress.* The formula was almost custom-built for times of high daily stress, exactly like this.*

To make it, we sourced the highest quality eco-farmed full-spectrum hemp in the world, harvested in an ecologically sustainable way, from crop to drop, from a multi-generation family farm. It's certified organic from the European Union, as well as the USDA, and DNA-tested to contain heritage European hemp strains that have been safely consumed by humans for decades.

This level of transparency is essential in the hemp space, which is just revving up here in the U.S. and can feel a bit like the Wild West at times. There's a lot of uncertainty around what's safe and what contains pesticides. I've also heard stories of people buying hemp products derived from unknown sources (i.e., potentially not the regulated hemp plant) and then getting high—and I have zero desire to do so myself.

We care deeply about where our ingredients come from and pride ourselves on hemp that is extracted cleanly, passes extremely rigorous testing, and is effective.*

Our hemp oil is 100% CO2 extracted from the aerial parts of the plant (leaves, flowers, and stems) to include a full spectrum of naturally occurring phytocannabinoids and terpenoids—which all work together in the endocannabinoid system to help ease stress and promote a positive mood.*

Hemp is the main player in our supplement, but it's supported by lavender oil, which also helps support our natural endocannabinoid system balance to maintain homeostasis in the body and cultivate a sense of well-being, and ashwagandha root and leaf extract, an adaptogenic herb that help ease feelings of anxiousness and stress.*

This targeted formula is designed to work with your body to foster relaxation and provide next-generation stress relief.*

The easiest way to take the edge off my stress—and feel centered and grounded.*

Ever since mindbodygreen developed calm+, I've been taking just one capsule a day. Now, because I personally need the extra support more than ever, I've elevated my serving size to twice a day—once in the morning and once in the afternoon before dinner.* (Each serving contains 20 mg of hemp-derived CBD.)

Since I've started taking two a day, the tightness and tension that have been lingering in my jaw have loosened.* Feeling this sense of calm and groundedness amid the uncertainty, I'm better able to take things one day at a time and work with purpose.*

Developing calm+ was always about finding a safe, effective solution to help people become less reactive and better able to manage life's stresses.* We've made a daily calming supplement that I'm super proud of—more so now than ever.*
