Also good to know: this tincture is made with whole flower, and it’s sugar-free, gluten-free, alcohol-free, and vegan.
I’ve taken a full dropper (17mg) of Populum before attending festivals, and it significantly helped mitigate the anxiety and overstimulation I typically experience in large crowds.
Cons: The bottles are on the smaller side, but the company might be changing that soon.
Humboldt Apothecary Uplift CBD oil
This is my favorite CBD oil overall; it’s the tincture I reach for when I want to unwind but I also want to remain 100% sober.
I love how quickly it reduces my anxiety, and I appreciate that it helps me decompress after a long day. As someone who misses being able to light up, I also thoroughly enjoy that this tincture smells more like weed than any other tincture I’ve used. The dosing chart that comes with every Rosebud CBD oil order ( and lives on the Rosebud website ) is super helpful as well. Plus, Rosebud is a woman-founded company.
Pros: Smells deliciously like weed, and the bottle cap design is fantastic—it’s one of the most leak-proof CBD oils in this list. This pick is rigorously tested for safety and potency, and Rosebud makes their test results available to the public. Each Rosebud CBD oil purchase comes with a handy dosing chart as well. Also, Rosebud ships anywhere in the United States.
All of the tinctures featured in this list are likely to help relieve pain, but Humboldt Apothecary Uplift CBD is hands down the best option for managing pain and boosting mood. When I recently woke up with a migraine, one 0.5ml dose of this stuff took all of my pain away in about 60 to 90 minutes. This is also my go-to pain reliever when I’m suffering from menstrual cramps. Since it’s a 1:1, I also enjoy taking this tincture for fun on some nights and weekends, or when I’m feeling blue.
In 2015, The Brothers Apothecary started with Hemp-Derived CBD-Infused Teas and has expanded its product line-up to include CBD-Infused Honey, Herbal Capsules, CBD Essential Oil Blends, and Hemp CBD Smoking Blends.
Let’s get into the products with more detail.
The Brothers Apothecary uses organically grown industrial hemp from Oregon, and the third-party lab results verify the hemp is indeed free from pesticides and other harmful contaminants.
About the Company: The Brothers Apothecary
Based on the product formulations, it’s evident the brand understands the herbal applications of hemp and is committed to sharing that knowledge on its website with blog articles and social media channels.
Additionally, all the third-party tests we expect to see are readily available on the company’s website.
There are clear instructions outlined for its product use along with long-form blog posts relating to CBD education found on its website. CBD dosing is a personal affair, as everyone reacts to CBD differently and uses it for different reasons.

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.
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.
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.
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.
