Cannabis tincture review: Humboldt Apothecary Calm

Anxiety affects roughly 40 million adults, which is 18 percent of the American public, every year. Calm 3:1 CBD:THC tincture is Humboldt Apothecary’s answer to anxiety. The triple-lab tested, full flower cannabis extract oil is pure. In fact, all of the herbs from Humboldt Apothecary are organically grown or sustainably wild-crafted. HA’s Calm formula includes lemon balm, which boosts memory and reduces anxiety, as well as passion flower and skullcap. All contribute to lifting the mood and relaxing the body.

Calm can be an effective “Mother’s little helper” for moments when keeping cool is not just an optional “nice to have” but is actually required to handle the situation. It doesn’t impair functionality, but rather, enhances an overall mood of “I’ve got this.” I could see using this in a wide variety of scenarios – frustrated teenagers, backlogged mail, traffic, a tight work deadline – to ease stress and find resiliency. The Calm formula is slightly euphoric due to the higher THC content, so is probably better for most to consume during the evening.

One of the tincture’s strengths is its great tasting, on-the-sweeter-side flavor. HA’s proprietary blend of honey, organic grain-free alcohol, and filtered water makes for one of the silkiest alcohol bases I’ve experienced. Cinnamon and the complimentary essential oils make this tincture palatable on its own, but would also taste great in coffee or a cannacocktail.

The wrap: Calm is Sweet Jane’s big brother, a remedy capable of quelling both anxiety related symptoms and pain issues. I’d recommend this to people who want a hella local, elixir-type of medicine, and don’t mind the extra euphoric oomph that comes with a higher THC ratio.
