My discovery of CBD products and their benefits started about three years ago when my anxiety hit the roof. I’d turned 40 and lost my dad on my 40th birthday, Our relationship was quite estranged due to his mental health problems but it still hurt and left me with so many unanswered questions.
I’ve always been a huge worrier
Throughout my adult life but this was different….. these anxiety attacks had me awake at night. With heart palpitations leaving very little the following day for anything else or anyone else, Something had to be done. Many of my friends smoke marijuana and said it would chill me out but I’m a bad ex smoker so cannot stand inhaling anything which is where my curiosity for CBD came about. I researched it and read so many amazing reviews that I just had to give it a try so ordered a bottle of CBD oil. My CBD discovery had begun.
I was so surprised at how strong it tasted
But it went under the tongue so it was bearable. And now I don’t even taste it. Initially I was a little disappointed as expected my anxiety to go from the first night. I know I’m very impatient, but like all things they need to digest and get into your system. So by week two I was calmer and sleeping so much better. I actually didn’t realise just how amazing it was until last October when I ran out.
We were on our way to Devon
For a family weekend away and I was out of my CBD oil and struggling with anxiety and heart palpitations. So I had to track down a local health food store to get some more before we left. I took the drops straight away and on the journey I slowly felt my anxiety calm. It was amazing! My little pot of calm!
I’m also a 40 something fitness loon
. And after starting taking CBD oil my recovery after a sweaty workout was so much quicker,. The aches I usually experienced days after was not quite so intense. In the last two years I have started using CBD in so many of my products. At home such as moisturisers, face spritz, bath bombs, face masks, and muscle balms. I have recently started using Allthingshemp anti inflammatory Hemp Cream and it’s amazing. It smells like a eucalyptus spa.
With an amazing heat
Once applied it really helps to rest and relax the muscles and joints. I’ve even put a small amount on my temples to soothe a headache. My most recent test was to air fry hemp leaves. To add to my regular green tea for an extra boost of antioxidant goodness. Which I believe really helps with my immune system. I’m so so excited to discovery everything this amazing plant has to offer. And to encourage everyone to use it in their day to day life. There is far too many people suffering unnecessarily these days and I strongly believe this amazing versatile plant could certainly help them and our environment.
