People take CBD for a variety of reasons. The most common ones we hear are to support a sense of calm for focus, help manage everyday stresses, recover from exercise-induced inflammation, and maintain healthy sleep cycles.*
But why people choose a specific type of CBD is totally personal.
Our Original Formula is pretty special. It was the CBD that first got a lot of people talking about how CBD works in the body, and it ended up launching the CBD industry.
There are a few reasons that Original Formula stands out from other CBD products:
1) The hemp itself is unique: It’s made from a unique hemp cultivar called CW1AS1. It’s a proprietary hemp genetic that we cultivate and grow on our own farms and on just two other partner farms. This cultivar has a special phytocannabinoid fingerprint and is only used in Charlotte’s Web Original Formula.
Reminder: you should know where your hemp comes from because the hemp plant cleans the air and soil it’s surrounded by, and if the soil, water, or air is contaminated, the hemp plant will pull up those toxins. That’s why we’re extremely specific about where and how it’s grown.
2) Extraction type: Most CBD products are extracted using CO2 extraction. In fact, many of our Charlotte’s Web products are made using supercritical CO2 extraction, but Original Formula is made through IPA alcohol extraction. This artisanal process creates a more earthy flavor and produces a bounty of plant compounds: CBD, additional cannabinoids, and a unique terpene profile. (There’s no residual alcohol left; it’s removed in the process.)
3) Full-Spectrum Extract: The extract produced is called “full spectrum” because it retains the variety of cannabinoids and plant compounds found in hemp naturally. Except for our THC Free† tincture, all our CBD products, including Original Formula, are full spectrum. This harmony of plant matter works synergistically to heighten the positive effects of cannabidiol and is put to use by the body’s endocannabinoid system, a network of receptors designed to keep the body in good health. Since research shows that using a full spectrum maximizes benefits delivered throughout the body and supplies additional wellness components, we make sure to give you as much of Mother Nature’s goodness as we can.
4) Terpenes: While other CO2 extracts can offer a full spectrum, they often do not offer as robust a terpene profile as Original Formula. Terpenes are compounds produced by plants and offer their own health benefits.
That’s a recap of the science behind Original Formula and the technical reasons why it’s different than other CBD products, but what are people saying about it! There’re many reasons why people love it; here are a few of them:
Very effective. Helps me to sleep and feel somewhat calmer.
From Tara D.:
I just feel all over more calm and in control and focused.
Lynete S. let us know that she thinks it’s;
Excellent,- my husband has been using this for years. It has made a big difference.
From Leah K.:
It helps my mind shut down enough where I can drift off to sleep. Sleep is so important, so this has helped.
Robert R. told us it’s a;
Terrific product…Works like a charm. Sleeping better. More relaxed. Great!
These are actual reviews that Original Formula lovers left on the site. And we’re so glad they did! But wait, there’s more….
The reviews also let us know that many people have tried other products or brands but find that the Original Formula is what works best for them:
From Vicki D.:
Results you can feel! I’ve tried several CBD oils that offered no noticeable effect. Charlotte’s Web starts to unwind my mind and body right from the get! Highly recommended!
Carmen C. says:
Much prefer this Original Formula!”
Ronald C. described himself as a “Long term, satisfied user”:
I started regularly using CBD two years ago; after deep research decided Charlotte’s Web was the safest product. Continuous use since then. Often cheaper, always more convenient to order through the corporate website.
While not everyone thinks about how different CBD products are extracted, some consumers notice that Original Formula’s mix of plant compounds may be what sets it apart.
“The best,” says Lisa E.:
This is the best CBD oil I’ve tried, and I’ve tried a lot. Something about the (extraction) process and the other natural terpenes, flavonoids, etc. just make this extra beneficial for me. I’ve even tried other Charlotte’s Web oils and keep coming back to this for my daily routine. Really improves my overall wellness. Thanks.
And since cannabidiol works within your endocannabinoid system, that vast network of receptors that help keep your body in good health, some effects you’ll notice sooner but some may take a few weeks of consistent usage to notice:
From Deb S.:
This purchase did exactly what I needed it to do after figuring out (servings) and allowed about 3 weeks for it to help. Very happy I bought it.
Jeffrey P. says it’s a “Premium Product” and went on to explain the importance of consistency:
People have to realize that these products are not instant fixes. You MUST maintain consistency. Of the CBD oils, this one has very particular extraction methods and ingredients that make it just that… premium. I have already started to notice a more general calmness, quality of sleep, and focus when needed. I look forward to the coming months when the full benefits start working in my system.
Some users like to pair Original Formula (also knowns as 50mg) with other Charlotte’s Web products, and we think that’s a great idea!
Thomas G takes Original Formula;
Intermittently with 60 mg, and one or two gummies for a pleasant taste!
Others prefer it with their morning routine or with other foods.
From Rey C:
Great CDB oil. I love the calming effect and that’s sorely needed on these stressful times. It goes great with coffee!
And Cesar A. says: Original Formula;
Tastes good w/café or by itself. GOES GREAT w/a chocolate chip cookie.
Another thing our customers appreciate are the discounts we offer to our email community.
From Virginia F.:
Charlotte’s Web provides quality CBD, with good customer service. To makes purchases “sweeter”, there are many discount offers via email.
Not only did Michelle F. tell us we have “Awesome CBD,” she went further to say:
This is definitely one of the best companies and one of the best products that I’ve ever had. This company is great to work with, customer service is excellent… the product really helps with my anxiety.
