10 CBD-Related Brands Absolutely Worth Looking Into This Summer

One of the most buzzed about terms with the health space over the past few years is “CBD.” Unfortunately it is not easy to explain what CBD — a non-psycho-active cannabinoid present in both cannabis and hemp — is to the everyday person. And on top of that, not all CBD-related products are regulated by the FDA. However, many medical professional are excited about the benefits of CBD.

Below are 10 CBD-related brands I have recently discovered per personal research and/or story pitches received over the last few months of 2020, all of which absolutely worth looking into.


PACHAMAMA is an award-winning CBD company whose super-food tinctures and topicals are “Purity Awarded” by The Clean Label Project; for reference, Jessica Alba’s Honest Company is also Purity Awarded. Out of 242 best-selling CBD brands on the market and tested by Clean Label Project, PACHAMAMA — meaning “Mother Earth” — CBD is only 1 of 4 to receive said Purity Award, which is in addition to honors from the CBD Expo. The USDA Certified Organic brand also utilizes a proprietary air extraction method to extract its CBD, not using any CO2, hydrocarbons or solvents. It also steers clear of artificial flavors and sweeteners. Thus, in order to provide pure, targeted products, you will only ever find its CBD extracts coupled with powerful superfoods and plant-extracts sourced from around the world.

Muscle MX

Staying active is important for both your physical and mental health, and having the tools to keep your body performing at its best is vital. Thus, with Muscle MX CBD topical balms, you can help prevent and/or recover from any muscle, joint and tendon pain. The brand’s balms are made with all-natural ingredients and broad-spectrum CBD. They stimulate blood flow to muscles, tendons and joints creating a soothing relief to pain. Ultimately, Muscle MX aims to provide real pain relief without any negative effect of pain medications.

Caliper CBD

Caliper CBD offers science-backed products with COA certification and research that shows Caliper CBD products have at least 4.5x more absorption in the first 15 minutes versus standard CBD oil products. Thus, Caliper CBD is an ideal way to consume CBD as it provides consistent and precise dose with every packet that cleanly dissolves into any food or drink. You can also cook and bake with it too. Each Caliper CBD packet has precisely 20 milligrams of CBD in on-the-go packaging, making it convenient to incorporate a boost of wellness into any lifestyle’s daily routine — you can enjoy is your morning coffee, protein shake, salad, evening nightcap, or make your own homemade edibles.

The flavors available will include Mixed Berry, Cool Mint, and Lemon Lime. Caliper SwiftSticks will be available in a 2-pack, 10-pack and 30-pack offerings with pricing ranging from $6.99 to $49.99.

This includes a line of hemp tinctures.

Leveraging the entourage effect with functional ingredients, Quicksilver Scientific’s CBD Synergies-AX Calming Formula is a fast-acting, complete relaxation remedy. It aims to provide quick and effective relief from acute feelings of unease, nervousness, worry and agitation.

Wana Wellness

Speaking of Wana Wellness, its Strawberry Hemp Gummies come with 10 servings in the bottle, which makes keeping up with your on-the-go dietary needs easy. But if strawberry isn’t your favorite fruit flavoring, Wana Wellness does offer hemp gummies in other flavors — including mango, mixed berry and tropical varieties — beyond offering such in different sizes. Honestly, the most delicious CBD-related gummies I have ever consumed. Wana Wellness’ gummies are now a part of my daily routine.


While Charlie Piermarini was practicing pain management, he noticed the increase in use of CBD with his patients.

Piermarini is a co-author of 2 publictions about CBD that are currently in press waiting to be published, in addition to a letter to the editor of The Pain & Therapy Journal regarding the need for more quality CBD products.

Dr. Han and the Vertosa team created an emulsion system for infusing the hCBD, resulting in maximum absorption. Available in Black, Mexican Chocolate and Vanilla flavors, each 8-ounce can of Soul Grind is comprised of organic cold brew with 100mg caffeine and 10mg broad-spectrum hCBD — a delicate formula deliberately designed to balance the energizing effects of caffeine with calming hCBD.
