I’ve been hearing about the CBD trend for a couple of years and honestly, I’ve been hesitant to jump on board. Mostly because I’m not big on putting things in my body that I don’t fully understand and also because I grew up in the Nancy Regan “Just Say NO” drug campaign era and I’ve been terrified to be near anything that could be considered a drug ever since.
Enter the CBD trend. All the chilling out effects and none of the high. Turns out CBD is completely legal and SUPER beneficial! It’s health benefits include reduced anxiety, less inflammation, regulation hormones, consistent sleep and so many more!
First of all, what is CBD? (this one is for my mom)
CBD is short for cannabidiol which is a molecule produced uniquely from the cannabis family. Unlike TCH (the main ingredient in marijuana) it does not have a psychoactive effect. Basically, it does not cause the “high” feeling that smoking a doobie does. Not that I would know, MOM.
When I was introduced to Equilibria a few months ago at a local Chicago event. I was so excited to give it a try. I’m so glad I did my research on Chicago based CBD company Equilibria because it has made such an impact on my day to day. Equilibria CBD comes in three forms, drops, pills, and a pain-relieving cream.
What makes Equilibria different is that their CBD is completely organic and they offer dosage support so you aren’t left to figure it all out on your own. Depending on what symptoms you are experiencing you can speak with someone one on one to help you navigate all your options.
Personally, I’ve noticed a bit of a longer fuse after using Equilibria for an extended period of time. I’m more patient with my kids and I’m sleeping so much better and completely through the night. It definitely takes the edge off in a very calm and natural way.
Turns out CBD is kind of like the wild wild west right now, with little regulation so it is important to know what you’re getting. If you do decide to dose, make sure you do your research and go to a company you trust.
