CBD Update + How It Has Helped Me

Well, here we are! Day 872645 of quarantine with no end in sight right now. Hope you all are hanging in there! I wanted to give you a little CBD update because it’s been over a year since I wrote this post and I feel like I’ve learned so much about CBD and the benefits since then. Especially during a time where life feels a little out of control and I could use all the help I can get.

I know a lot of you tried Equilibria during our wellness month challenge which makes me so happy! When I was first introduced to the idea of CBD I immediately thought “this isn’t for me, I don’t NEED IT, I’m not that anxious, etc.,” and I’m so grateful I said yes to testing it out because it’s been over a year and I haven’t looked back. I also want to say, if it helps me, I can’t imagine the benefits it could bring to people who suffer from mental health challenges, pain, inflammation, sleep strain and more. When you take CBD consistently, the benefits are incredible.

I would characterize my level of anxiety as very dependent on my control of a situation and my sleep. I’ve noticed a significant change in my anxiety since starting CBD and my ability to let go of the things I can’t control. It also helps tremendously with falling asleep and staying asleep. If taking CBD intimidates you or if you find yourself feeling like it’s not for you, I encourage you to give it a try! It doesn’t mean you enjoy smoking pot (ha!); in fact, CBD will not give you any sort of high whatsoever. You can read this Q+A with Equilbria’s founder, Coco Meers, who answered so many amazing questions! I highly recommend you read it if you feel like now is the time to take the dive.

Given the current state of the world, I’m grateful for Equilibria now more than ever. I always encourage my mom friends to give it a try as we are trying to balance EVERYTHING while also maintaining our own sanity, finding a sense of balance with new routines, resting our body and mind and staying in control of our situation.

Why Equilibria CBD?

Equilibria’s premium CBD is fully traceable from their 1,100 acre partner farm in Colorado to your doorstep. No fluff. No fillers. No middlemen. So you know you’re getting consistent and reliable quality batch after batch, month after month. No surprises.

Organically grown by their bioscience team with 30+ years experience in seed genetics, their specially-formulated hemp oil features 9 cannabinoids & 21 terpenes that work together to give you powerful therapeutic results.

All their full-spectrum CBD products are free of GMOs, solvents, heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides. Each plant is hand-harvested and the oil is carefully extracted from flowers only—the purest source of cannabinoids. They never use stalks, stems, seeds, or isolates. Basically, it is the BEST of the best.

What Equilibria products do you take?

So what I love is that you can change your dosage up depending on the situation! For example, I recently upgraded my daily gels to an extra strength dose (10mg up to 25mg) given the situation and feeling anxious/panic-y.

When I first started taking Equilibria CBD I would take a 10mg daily gel at night. The daily gels are slow release. Then I upgraded to a dropper of their daily drops at night which are faster acting and stronger! Then I would take a 10mg gel when I woke up or if I felt I needed a sense of calm throughout the day. Now, I take a 25mg daily gel before bed—I have found that the slower release works better for me because I don’t necessarily have a hard time FALLING asleep but I do deal with waking up randomly in the middle of the night and not being able to fall asleep. I have found that these stronger gels are the perfect balance for me for sleep. Then if I need it during the day, I’ll take the drops for faster acting results! It’s all about helping me maintain a sense of control. Most days I just use Equilibria’s 25mg daily gels at night and then take the drops during the day if needed. Because these are the two products that I use the most (and most used by their customers!), I always recommend starting with the Balance Box. *Equilibria also has dosage specialists on hand to help you determine your dosage (after your purchase the product) to help you balance with other medications you may be taking, lifestyle, etc. Equilibria’s team is sooo helpful!

I also have to note that if you have any pain—muscle soreness, menstrual cramps, pain due to illness or disease, pain in general—Equilibria relief cream is out of this world.

I want to make sure to mention that consistency is key when it comes to CBD. You should notice a difference within 4-7 days of taking it (honestly I noticed a difference after 2 or 3) but taking it daily helps to maintain the levels in your body to ease anxiousness, inflammation and help with sleep, stress, etc. I highly recommend a subscription to ensure you’re not running out after 30 days! Plus you can change or cancel our subscription at any time. It’s like a little gift of self-care to myself every month (Dave gets one too!). Again, if I notice a difference then I can’t imagine the benefits it could bring to someone who really feels like they are struggling. I know it could help you if you feel like that’s you!
