These days, we could all use some help in the stress management department. That's where mbg's calm+ supplement comes in.

calm+ starts with nonpsychoactive E.U.- and USDA-certified organic hemp oil, which is full-spectrum and delivers an array of powerful plant compounds, including hemp-derived CBD. To further its relaxing benefits, the formula also contains diligently sourced lavender oil and ashwagandha extract to ease anxiousness1 and increase the body's ability to bounce back from stress2.*

mindbodygreen carefully formulated every last detail of calm+ (down to its orange gelcap, colored naturally with turmeric!) to make sure it delivers the best in science-backed botanicals. Here, those who have tried calm+ share how they're using the soothing supplement to help them handle life's inevitable stressors with more ease, any time of the day or night.*


"Since calm+, I'm much less stressed and able to handle chaos with two kids better."

"As a mother of two kids, stress management is something I have learned to deal with. Sometimes, you need a little help when your life with a newborn and toddler is chaotic. Since taking mindbodygreen's calm+, I am not as stressed as I used to be, and I am able to handle chaos with two kids better, all while getting good-quality sleep (interrupted as it may be). I highly recommend calm+ to anyone who needs to manage stress and target stress biomarkers like cortisol. A must for moms everywhere!"*

Bindiya Gandhi, M.D., family-medicine-certified physician


"calm+ has a palpable calming effect on my body and mind that lasts all day long."

"I've been prone to anxiousness a lot of my adult life, and the past year-plus has dished some novel stressors. I have tried everything from medication to meditation to help usher in a state of calm, but it's been elusive. Taking calm+ daily helps me get through stressful situations—a screaming toddler, a stressful meeting, or a turbulent flight—with a little bit more ease. calm+ has a palpable calming effect on my body and mind that lasts all day long."*

Colleen Wachob, mbg co-founder & co-CEO


"Plant-based ingredients to take me out of 'fight or flight' and into calm."

"I have battled with sleep issues for a long time. I am always on the lookout for plant-based ingredients in high-quality supplements to take me out of 'fight or flight' and into calm and restful sleep. After three weeks of consistently using calm+ in the early evenings, I felt less stressed around bedtime, and it's easier for me to shut my brain down. This product has a unique profile of botanicals and phytocannabinoids that can systematically improve your response to stress and offer relief. I'm excited to continue to use calm+ as part of my daily routine!"*

Laura Lea, certified holistic chef & cookbook author


"calm+ serves up botanical calm rooted in clinical science."

"This unique trifecta of plant ingredients (organic hemp, ashwagandha, and lavender) in calm+ were specifically curated to promote relaxation, and they deliver. The premium calm+ formula serves up botanical calm rooted in clinical science. From botanical ID-confirmed lavender flowers and ashwagandha with the highest potency of glycowithanolides available to full-spectrum European organic hemp, I know exactly what I'm taking to stress less."*

Ashley Jordan Ferira, Ph.D., RDN, mbg vice president of scientific affairs


"I feel more relaxed, and my day just seems to run smoother when I don't sweat the small stuff."

"I have taken many supplements, and this is the one that I actually see a difference with. I can be wired tight, so I was looking for a little Zen calmness in my life. I feel more relaxed, and my day just seems to run smoother when I don't sweat the small stuff."*

—Paula M., mbg customer


"A nonnegotiable supplement for me."

"A nonnegotiable supplement for me. I take this pretty much first thing in the morning so that I can be even-keeled throughout my day. I still feel everything, but I feel it helps me take my day and what comes at me with a bit more calm and grace... It's a must-have."*

Nancy G., mbg customer


"My go-to!"

"My go-to! I am a huge fan of this supplement. It's gentle enough to take first thing in the morning, and it has given me that edge to stay balanced even during these tough days of quarantine. It's another tool in my tool belt!"*

Karen G., mbg customer


"Love this product."

"Love this product. I notice that I am much calmer with circumstances that would give me a slight feeling of anxiousness. Thank you."*

—Jessica P., mbg customer


"Great for improving response to daily stressors."

"This formula is phenomenal for improving one’s response to the daily stressors of life that are ubiquitous in today’s world."*
