There are many rungs on my Healthy Living Ladder - MANY RUNGS.
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.

As I've shared many time through this blog, I have Stage 4 Endometriosis. I also have anxiety, insomnia, and pretty bad acne (at 40 years old, I'm not a fan of acne). I have chosen to use CBD in a few different forms to help with all of this.
For my Endometriosis - the pain that I experience follows my menstrual cycle. I use 250mg tincture from Hemp Life Today to help with the cyclical pain. Additionally, if I am feeling inflamed (back, knee, stomach) I use the CBD salve from Hemp Life Today to help with the inflammation.
For my anxiety - (I don't lead a stressful life, I'm just a stressful person) - well, there are a couple of different ways I choose to use CBD when I find my anxiety peaking. For long distance or air travel, I choose to use a trans-dermal patch from Mary's Nutritionals. I also use this when I'm going into a high stress situation as well. For short distance travel and elevated stress situations I choose to use CBD gum from Canchew in addition to the 250mg tincture from Hemp Life Today.
For my insomnia - I think that this is one of the side effects from my Lupron treatment for Endometriosis that is just kind of sticking around. I truly am not a big fan of it - AT.ALL. I use the 250mg tincture from Hemp Life Today, it helps me to sleep by shutting off my racing thoughts.
For my acne - it truly isn't as bad as it use to be, but following my menstrual cycle I get hormonal acne in very specific and targeted areas on my face. I use the CBD salve from Hemp Life Today to help clear it up.
How does CBD help me? I'm not in pain. I am not anxious. I am calm. I don't feel agitated. I can get a restful nights sleep.
CBD from industrial hemp plants is 100% legal in the United States. You can find it in health food stores and on-line.
