Winged Wellness is a women-focused CBD company that targets women with various health issues. According to the founder, Jessica Mulligan, women are twice likely to experience anxiety, depression, and insomnia than men. These conditions are mostly caused by physical makeup and hormonal shift, especially as the woman get in her 20s. However, society offers little support to women going through these harsh times, calling for well-informed women like Jessica to come to the rescue of their fellow vulnerable species. Therefore, Winged Wellness was formed on a mission to provide a solution to women facing emotional and physical hardships and help them live a better life once again.
Although the company was founded in 2017 with about five years in the market, it still offers a limited but highly effective product line. It mainly focuses on providing USDA-certified and organic full-spectrum CBD products, including topicals, capsules, gummies, and chocolate bites. These products have potencies ranging from 15 to 750 mg of CBD. They are also extracted using the CO2 extraction method and formulated using an easily digestible and organic MCT oil. The company then runs in-house and independent laboratory testing to ensure consumers get clean products free from harmful pesticides, harsh chemicals, and heavy metals.
Winged Wellness also uses organically cultivated hemp from the Kentucky and Oregon farms. These authorized farms use natural sunlight and cultivation methods and adhere to USDA organic rules and regulations. To ensure the products reaching the market are 100% organic, the company uses non-GMO hemp seeds, pesticide-free farming, and certified hemp extraction methods to formulate its products.
Regarding transparency and accuracy, Winged Wellness is among the transparent CBD companies available today. Its honesty is seen in the purity test results for foreign materials such as microbial, heavy metals, and solvents posted on its website with corresponding potency test results. This helps new customers to review every product before buying to avoid regrets. Further, since 2017, the company has not received any FDA or BBB warnings on its products. Most products also contain less than 0.3% THC, while others had no THC content at all.
The company sells its products at an affordable price point, ranging between $25 and $110. Its average price is about $0.14 per milligram of CBD, making it a cheaper option than other brands that also provide certified organic hemp-based products. Customers can also benefit from a 15% discount on monthly auto-ship subscriptions and bundles purchases. Not forgetting, the company also offers free shipping on all products with a 30-day money-back policy.
Generally, Winged Wellness has one of the best customer experiences, starting from its easy-to-navigate website to a fast responsive team of experts. The website has vast information, including the Hemp 101, recipes, and FAQ link sections, located below the Learn button on the main page. When we visited the product page, we could see all the information we needed, including dosage, ingredients, possible effects. Buyers can also filter and buy products based on the effect or benefit as outlined in the Shop menu.
The Winged Wellness’s Background
Jessica Mulligan started Winged Wellness in 2017 as a simple idea to share her relief story with women undergoing various life challenges. This came after the plant-based medicine helped her fight anxiety that had rendered her desperate. According to Jessica, a friend suggested a combination of CBD and adaptogens to help lessen the tightness in her chest. However, after feeling better, regaining her normal sleeping patterns, and getting comfortable in her skin, she went further to look for answers as to why women often have these experiences when in their 20s. That is when she realized that women suffer from anxiety, insomnia, and depression more than men in the same age group.
After realizing that women often have similar experiences in life, Jessica set on a journey looking for the best way to help fellow women. This is when Winged Wellness was born as the only brand that focuses on women and their problems. The company had a simple mission of making women feel better and happy by providing CBD-based products that suit only woman’s body. However, the expansion of the company and expert’s team has seen it introduce a supportive community of Winged Women, all in a mission to address challenges women face.
Today, Winged Wellness focuses on specialized supplements to help women with specific needs, including Sleep, Mood, Skin, Energy, and Stress. The experts behind the company’s success combine specific herbs, adaptogens, and cannabinoids to meet the desired outcome and help with hormonal balancing in women. The company also has five supplements that use only CBD in their formulation and five that use adaptogenic mushrooms and botanicals, instead of CBD. Until today, the company utilizes the services of a holistic nutritionist and master herbalist who formulate all the products to ensure they are clean, non-GMO, and free from gluten and synthetics.
Ever since the company came into existence in 2017, it has maintained its mission of providing high-quality and naturally cultivated hemp-based products for women. These products are also USDA-certified and manufactured under the required GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) conditions. Also, as part of the Quality Promise, the company uses the highest production standards, and ensures customers’ safety and consistency, especially through its 30-day satisfaction policy on all purchases.
The company also believes that the CBD business should be all about improving social life. For this reason, they have partnered with community and non-profit organizations that focus on giving back to women across the US. For example, they partnered with MOSTe to offer a scholarship fund in 2020, which helped women discover their potential. They also worked with Girls for A Change, a non-profit youth development firm, and Downtown Los Angeles Women’s Center to help women replenish and strengthen their resources. Additionally, their commitment to their sole mission has seen them feature in several media platforms, including Well + Good, Beauty Independent, Who What Wear, and Bustle.
Transparency is one major factor that defines the success of a company. Therefore, for Winged Wellness to remain transparent to its customers, it runs third-party lab testing on all products to ensure they meet the safety and quality requirements. The availability of the independent lab results also ensures the labeled CBD and THC contents match what the customer founds in the purchased products. The brand posts all the potency and purity results on the centralized lab testing section. However, we could not find the pesticide lab results on all products we checked during the time of writing this.
We crosschecked the third-party lab results for potency and purity using the batch numbers on the four ordered products, emails from customer service, and centralized Lab Results on the main menu below the About button. However, the customer service emailed the missing lab reports in two weeks, considering that the website is still under revamping. According to our findings, the highest accuracy variance was recorded in the Relax Softgels which had 1167 mg of CBD and 474 mg of CBG. This translates to 38.9 mg of CBD and 15.8 mg of CBG per serving of one softgel, giving an accuracy variance of 55.6%, above the recommended 10% limit.
We also recorded the lowest accuracy variance in the 500 mg Radiance Topical Youth Serum, which had 531.9 mg of CBD or 17.73 mg per serving of one dropper (1 ml). This translates to an accuracy variance of 6.38%, under the legal 10% limit. Finally, all products had below the legal 0.3% THC limit, according to the independent lab testing results.

Winged Wellness is an authorized manufacturer of high-quality CBD-based products in the market. It uses the organic hemp grown in Kentucky and Oregon farms under natural outdoor conditions. The experts also use all-natural and organic farming practices, including non-GMO hemp seeds and ingredients to formulate the products. This ensures the full-spectrum products reaching the market are clean, safe, and have numerous benefits apart from treating insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
The manufacturing process starts from the extraction of cannabinoids using the CO2 method. At this point, the hemp is harvested from the authorized farms and taken to the GMP-certified facilities. The cannabinoids are then extracted and mixed with adaptogens, before being formulated using the easily digestible carrier MCT oil to enhance their bioavailability. The formulation also helps to categorize the products into capsules, topicals, and edibles, all under full-spectrum CBD. It is at this stage that in-house packaging, bottling, and labeling activities occur, which are all done through quality and environmental-focused practices.
The formulated products are then taken through independent third-party laboratory testing to ensure the CBD and THC potency labeled on the products matches what the buyer receives. This is a vital step for the company since it ensures the products meet the safety and quality claims. The lab results are then posted on the Lab Results hub on the website for all customers to review before placing an order. However, at the time of writing this review, they were launching a new lab testing hub, and we could only get the missing results directly from the customer service through email.
Winged Wellness has a limited product range, focusing on only full-spectrum CBD. Their line of products includes topicals, capsules, gummies, and chocolate bites, with CBD strength ranging between 15 mg and 750 mg. The company also has CBD bundles, gift cards, and various non-CBD products for specific women’s needs. That said, here is an overview of the Winged product line.
Winged Wellness Capsules and Softgels
Winged Wellness offers its full-spectrum capsules and softgels in 15 and 25 mg potencies. Their softgels undergo CO2 extraction and MCT formulation processes, making them ideal for oral use and easily digestible. These capsules are also the best way of supplementing CBD daily intake. The company recommends a dosage of one to two capsules per serving, depending on the age and CBD tolerance. Luckily, all capsules are formulated using all-natural and organic ingredients. The popular softgels from the company include:

Our team ordered several products from the Winged Wellness company and decided to test if what was indicated on the product page matches what we got. After our evaluation, we decided to give our honest review on the following products:
10 Mg Relaxation CBD Gummies, 30 ct
These organic, vegan-friendly, and Kosher-certified gummies are amber yellow and have a traditional gummy texture. They are semi-circular and coated with granulated sugar. They also have a natural sweetness resulting from the organic sugar and tapioca syrup included during formulation. When we tested for accuracy, we noticed that each 10 mg gummy had 12.48 mg of CBD per one gummy serving size, while the 210 mg bottle had 262.08 mg of CBD. This translates to an accuracy variance of 24.8%, which is way above the acceptable 10% limit.
The gummies did not contain heavy metals, microbial, or pesticides, based on the purity tests. Therefore, the company recommends these gummies for women looking for full-spectrum CBD to relieve stress, anxiety, and improve their overall wellbeing.
10 mg Sleepy CBD Gummies, 30 ct
Unlike the relaxation gummies, sleepy gummies have between a dark-red orange and medium brown color. They are also formulated from organic and Kosher-certified full-spectrum CBD but have a sticky consistency and gelatinous texture. However, they are made using fruit pectin instead of gelatin, as most people would think. These sleepy gummies are also semi-circular, and the company recommends them only for oral use. The only downside is that they leave a sticky residue on the fingers.
Regarding their accuracy, each 10 mg gummy had 11.15 mg of CBD per one gummy serving size, while a bottle labeled 300 mg had 345 mg of CBD. This gives an accuracy variance of about 15%, above the legal 10% variance limit. Purity tests indicated no traces of heavy metals, microbial, or pesticides. Therefore, these gummies are suitable for women who need CBD products for enhanced sleeping routines since they treat insomnia and improve overall sleeping patterns.
25 mg Relief Pain Support CBD Softgels, 30 ct
Women looking for long-lasting CBD products to help in relieving daily physical discomfort and menstrual cramps should try these Relief Pain Support Softgels. These capsules are about the vitamin size and are formulated using all-natural full-spectrum CBD. They are also dark brownish-black and have a traditional softgel consistency. The company sells these capsules in 30 ml bottles, each containing 30 capsules, and recommends them for oral use only for fast results. The
Each capsule is labeled to have 25 mg of CBD and 10 mg of CBG, translating to 750 mg of CBD and 300 mg of CBG per bottle. However, when we tested for accuracy, we realized each bottle contained 1167 mg of CBD and 474 mg of CBG, while a serving of one softgel had 38.9 mg of CBD and 15.8 mg of CBG. This gives an accuracy variance of about 55.6%, way above the acceptable 10% limit.
We had among the best buying experience from the company, starting from the easy-to-navigate website to a comprehensive product page that provided vital information, including the ingredients, potencies, benefits, and possible side effects. More information is also provided in the About section, found at the bottom of every page. The company also allows buyers to make purchases based on the specific requirements using the Shop link found on the main menu.
We could also reach the support team via the phone, email, or online messaging platform provided under the support chat widget on every page. For instance, the team provided more information about the shipping policy and extract types the next business day through an email. It also gave lab results for three products batch numbers that were missing on the centralized testing hub, though it took two weeks to respond.
Shipping and Return Policies
The company ships all orders between two and four business days, which is a bit fast, considering that brands can take up to one week to make deliveries. However, our order was delivered in a less discreet box via FedEx Ground. It also had a large company sticker with their name and contact information on the side. The products were secured in a smaller box, with each item wrapped individually. Luckily, the company runs a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, as explained in the FAQ and Return Policy sections, which allowed us to test and ensure they delivered the right order.

Our Overall Verdict
Winged Wellness has won the hearts of many women due to one major reason; sticking to its primary mission of providing CBD products that address women’s problems only. For this reason, the company creates high-quality and specific products that help women of all ages to live happy life again. Also, since the market is now full of different supplements, women with individual symptoms may find it hard to identify the best products to treat their conditions. Therefore, having a company with one target audience only becomes a huge remedy for such women.
The company also sells its products at an affordable price range, which favors all women in the world. It also has five bundle options, which can save the customer about 15% off the regular price. These include an Ultimate CBD Skincare, Multi 3-Pack of Sleepy and Relaxation Gummies, Day and Night Gummy, and Ultimate Winged Gift bundle containing two CBD items and one non-CBD item. Generally, we can confidently recommend Winged Wellness for any woman facing anxiety, depression, and insomnia because, besides offering CBD products for relation and enhanced sleep, it also runs an educational program to empower all women in the community.
