The use of CBD is just another one of those rungs on my Healthy Living Ladder that I have found exceptionally helpful for me. That's the key, it works for me. I don't know if it'll work for you. But, I'll give you the information that I have and you can make that decision.

In addition to using 250mg CBD with a dosing of 1.0ml I use a CBD Transdermal Patch when traveling and when I am about to enter what I consider to be a potential high stress situation for me (an example of this would be a large family gathering).
- Because I do not travel well.
- Because I do not like large crowds and family can often times be tricky.
I use the Mary's Nutritional Patch which has 10mg of hemp extract (aka cbd). I typically place it on the veiny part of my arm by my wrist. I've only had to use this patch four times in the past year. As I was leaving for a road trip to Texas (on the first day), that return trip from Texas (on the first day), on Thanksgiving, and on Christmas Day. I have one patch on reserve and will be ordering another five within the next few weeks to stock up again. I have not experienced pain from my endometriosis so severely that I needed to use the patch, though.
I take my normal dosage of CBD tincture, apply the patch after I've cleaned my skin with rubbing alcohol, and I find that whatever anxiety or stress that I had prior to that just melts away. I'm easier to deal with and I deal the the situation at hand better.
I find that the patch is very effective for me up to 8 hours and I consider it a nice buffer dose for me. I have found, in general, my routine and regular use of CBD has increased my quality of life on a daily basis. Mentally and emotionally, I am better. I am not anxious or stressed, which prior to starting the use of CBD would often times result in my taking that anxiousness or stress out on my family. Not the case anymore. Also, I am sleeping better. Often times, though, I find that my regular and routine use of CBD just needs a small added increase to handle situations that in the past seemed to incapacitate me (such as large gatherings or family). I view my use of CBD as how I'm able to lead a happy, joyous and free life. I'm much happier. It's amazing. It's been a total game changer for me.
