The story behind CALMA

Many people believe that the medical benefits of CBD have only been discovered more recently, but the roots of this remarkable natural substance go back a long way. A look into the past and future of CBD reveals a fascinating journey through the history of cannabis medicinal uses.

The first attempts to cultivate the cannabis plant began 10,000-12,000 years ago in the Indian subcontinent and Central Asia, mainly for the production of textile fibers. The use of cannabis for medicinal purposes is also ancient. As early as 2700 BC. In the 4th century BC, Chinese Emperor Sheng Nung drank cannabis tea to treat gout, malaria and rheumatism.

The history of cannabis as a medicine spans centuries. In the 16th century, King Philip II of Spain ordered hemp cultivation throughout his empire and brought hemp products into modern society. Even Queen Victoria used CBD to relieve menstrual cramps in the late 19th century.

Despite these early uses, cannabis was not recognized by most medical professionals during the rise of modern medicine due to a lack of scientific evidence. It wasn't until the 19th century that researchers like Irish physician William B. O'Shaughnessy began studying the therapeutic effects of hemp. O'Shaughnessy's 1839 study marked the beginning of a more intensive examination of the medicinal uses of cannabis.

The actual discovery of CBD did not occur until the 20th century. In 1940, British chemist Roger S. Cahn first isolated cannabinol (CBN) from the hemp plant, followed by the isolation of cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) by American chemist Roger Adams.

However, the breakthrough in modern cannabis research only came in the 1960s with Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, who decoded the structure of CBD and received the title of "Godfather of Cannabis Research". Mechoulam's work paved the way for research into further medical applications of cannabinoids and led to a better understanding of our body's endocannabinoid system.

Research into CBD continued to gain momentum in the 1980s, particularly in relation to the treatment of epilepsy. Mechoulam and his team conducted a study that showed promising results and paved the way for wider acceptance of CBD as an effective medication.

Today, the World Health Organization also recommends increased research into CBD medications, and numerous studies support the medical benefits of CBD and hemp. However, despite these advances, further research remains needed to realize the full potential of CBD.

The 21st century brings with it a mixed perception of cannabis, characterized by stigma and the lack of clinical research. But with a shift in thinking in both the scientific community and the public, CBD has a promising future. It is estimated that the value of the CBD market could reach over 10 billion euros worldwide by 2028, marking a notable increase compared to previous years.

The story of CBD is one of discovery, progress and hope. From its early uses in ancient civilizations to modern use in medical research, CBD has become a fascinating and promising area of ​​natural medicine.


is a brand dedicated to producing high-quality CBD products to support people on their journey to a more balanced lifestyle. Markus Hetzenegger , the young entrepreneur and founder of CALMA CBD, used to suffer from severe panic attacks and anxiety. This led to sleep disturbances and a state of constant stress. Since he had already rejected conventional pharmaceutical medications, he discovered CBD during some research. The only remedy that really helped him in the long term. The problem: Most CBD oils were of very poor quality, it was unclear where the CBD extract came from, and the cheapest oils and flavors were used as carrier oils. At that time he thought: "When I get well again, I definitely want to make high-quality CBD available to everyone." Four years later he founded CALMA CBD.

Because in today's world, where stress and hectic pace are omnipresent, more and more people are looking for natural ways to improve their health and well-being. In this context, cannabidiol, or CBD for short, has gained remarkable attention. It is derived from the cannabis plant, but unlike its counterpart tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it does not cause psychoactive effects.

But what is CBD oil?

CBD oil is a natural product extracted from the cannabis plant. It contains cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound that does not cause intoxicating effects. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant and then diluting it with a carrier oil such as coconut or hemp seed oil. It is often used for its potential health benefits, such as reducing stress and anxiety, relieving pain and inflammation, and promoting healthy sleep. CBD oil is legal in many countries and is offered in a variety of forms, including tinctures, capsules, gummies, and topical applications.

CBD oil has experienced a remarkable rise in recent years and has become a staple in many households. This natural product, derived from the cannabis plant, has shown a variety of positive effects that can be both physical and mental. The ongoing trend around CBD oil is closely linked to its versatility and the potential health benefits it offers.

One of the most notable positive effects of CBD oil is its ability to reduce stress and anxiety. Numerous studies have shown that CBD has a calming effect on the central nervous system, helping to relieve symptoms of stress and promoting an overall feeling of relaxation. This property has made CBD oil a popular natural remedy for dealing with everyday stress.

Additionally, CBD oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can be helpful in relieving pain and discomfort. People suffering from chronic pain, arthritis, or other inflammation-related conditions have reported the potential benefits of CBD oil. By reducing inflammation in the body, CBD oil can provide a natural alternative to traditional painkillers.

Another positive effect of CBD oil is its possible support for sleep disorders and insomnia. Many people use CBD oil to improve the quality of their sleep and combat sleep disorders. By promoting relaxation and calming the mind, CBD oil can help promote a healthy sleep-wake cycle.

Why did I found CALMA?

My name is Markus. I started my own business at the age of 18 and have spent the last 10 years building up the company NYBA . Just a few years after founding the company, I was increasingly dealing with increasingly severe panic attacks and anxiety. In hindsight I know that it was depersonalization/derealization. These “conditions” have made my life hell. My body was trapped in a constant state of stress from which I couldn't take even the slightest break. This constant state of tension also led to severe sleep disorders, which ended in a vicious circle. Due to the fact that I generally reject pharmaceutical products, the only natural product that had an effect was a 30% CBD oil. I'm not exaggerating when I say that these few drops a day saved me. Today I can be completely healthy again, for which I am grateful every day. Since then, the effect of CBD has been so inspiring that I vowed to one day enrich the quality of life of as many people as possible with the numerous benefits of this purely plant-based oil.

My mission

Is to bring the highest quality CBD oil to the market. Most CBD oils use the cheapest carrier oils such as sunflower oil and use CBD concentrate from unknown sources, not to mention the growing conditions. In addition, they often contain artificial flavors. That was my basic idea why I started CALMA. Our oils only contain two ingredients that are 100% plant-based. Our cannabis is also grown indoors in Switzerland under the strictest cultivation conditions with the highest quality standards available. We also use a very high-quality carrier oil: MCT oil , which is obtained from coconut oil and has numerous health benefits in itself.

I hope that you too have many positive experiences with our products. I would be very happy to hear about your experience with our products! The same applies to suggestions for improvement.

Thank you for taking the time to read these lines! Your Mark :)
