30 May Finding Balance with CBD
I recently I shared that I take CBD everyday…twice a day…and I got lots of questions about why.
So here’s my answer:
My hip and elbow were hurting and I was having some having trouble sleeping (I literally woke up about 5 times per night).
Then I got a box of goodies from Equilibria — relief balm and daily drops – and after I started taking them daily for about 2 weeks, I began to sleep through the night AND my hip and elbow pain went away!
After sharing my experience on IG, lots of viewers/followers had follow-up questions, so I thought I’d share:
Q: What is CBD?
A: CBD is a natural ingredient found in hemp flowers. Everyone thinks you get high from it, but you don’t, it’s non-psychoactive, it’s not THC which makes you high. CBD does not make you high. However, it has been shown to help with all sorts of things like stress, anxiety, and sleep.
It’s also a powerful anti-inflammatory hence I’m not in any pain.
It works for me — lots of my friends swear by it and there’s lots of anecdotal evidence — but there are also lots of studies that clinically prove it impacts physical and mental well-being (of course when you take the right dosage, consistently).
Q: There are so many CBD companies, why choose Equilibria?
A: After a little research, I learned the company was created by women, for women (although Luis likes the supplements, which I learned is totally fine for men to take…and ALL their products work for men, the company just markets products towards women).
Q: Are the ingredients grown in the US?
A: Yes, Equilibria’s CBD comes from a farm in Colorado and that means the ingredients are fully traceable.
Q: How much CBD should I take?
A: It’s different for everyone since everybody is different. Personally, I was super excited about the companies free dosage calls. Basically, you get to have a phone call with a CBD/Cannabis educator and they talk to you about your health goals and help you figure out how much CBD will work best for you.
I spoke to a girl named Haley…who was super helpful and knowledgeable.
I learned so much from her, but this stayed with me:
- I learned that CBD amplifies endorphins, the feel good hormone! Your body releases endorphins after you exercise so when people talk about the “runners high” that’s what you’re feeling. And, CBD basically extends the length of your natural “runners high” after exercise…um, love that.
Q: What do you take?
A: I love the subscription box with the daily drops, soft gels and relief balm. It shows up on my door every month. And of course like any subscription deal, it’s more cost effective since you get a 20% discount on all subscriptions.
Plus – they gave me a code to share with all of you.
Code “Liberte” saves you 15% on your first order.
Lmk if you try it!
