About Crazy Calm

Enhance your day, enhance your life

“We have two lives, and the second begins when we realize we only have one.”
-Confucius

Harnessing the energy of coffee like never before, Crazy Calm is a subtle reminder of what makes us feel most alive.

The Beautiful Struggle

All we have is today. We fight to get a little bit better. The fight doesn’t stem from a mindset of lack, but from the perspective that there’s room for growth.

Getting there can help make you happier, calmer, more effective, more valuable, and overall more alive.

At the office, gym, on the road, the great outdoors, wherever you are, Crazy Calm is the perfect compliment to your journey.

Life is better with hemp

Can you believe that for most of the 20th and 21st century (so far), drinking CBD coffee was not a legal option in the United States?

Hemp is a great plant to have around. A bright future lies ahead for this special crop. Historically, it hasn’t always been this way.

It’s been a long fight in the United States. It was banned just over 80 years ago in the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. Growing hemp was declared illegal most likely due to the threat it posed to the paper industry.

Fast forward 8 decades to 2018, and it’s back on the scene. The 2018 Farm Bill made growing hemp legal again.

In addition to paper, it can be used as fuel (more effective than ethanol), an excellent protein (hemp seeds), and can help preserve the earth by removing carbon dioxide from the air.

Growing hemp also works magic underground. It cleans polluted soil by drawing heavy metals up through its roots and storing them in its stalk. This cleanup process takes place in just a few harvests!

Now, it is important to note that while we love the soil cleanup on a macro level, we don’t want the CBD in your coffee to come from hemp grown on less than optimal land.

That’s why we use CBD derived from organic compliant hemp.

Crazy Calm is a juxtaposition; Like the best things in life

You may ask, how can you be crazy and calm? Are CBD and coffee opposites? Upon further examination, you’ll see that the sweetest things in life are born from contrast:

  • Victory feels greatest after overcoming obstacles, setbacks, and failures.
  • People feel most alive when they have a brush with death.
  • Eating a meal tastes best when you are hungry.
 Most of these juxtapositions are not life altering events, but beautiful, daily manifestations.
 

The little things in life are the most important. We invite you to try our CBD coffee and add more life to your day.


Crazy Calm was founded by two friends who share a passion for healthy living, freedom, and coffee. 

While both founders are originally from the Washington D.C. area, they met in Colombia, each of them exporting superfoods to the United States. For more of the backstory, read this blog post for Robbie’s story or this blog post for Matt’s story.
