What I wanted: My creative mind to be calm and to help me sleep.
What wellness means to me
“I’m careful about everything I put into or on my body. I’m always reading ingredient labels on everything from sauce to sunscreen. I like to workout, but the majority of my wellness happens outside the gym. I’m hardworking but try to not take myself too seriously. When I’m at work, I give it my all, but when I’m with friends and family, I really try to disconnect.”
When I first heard about CBD
I had been anxious about work and a lot of changes in life and was having a hard time sleeping as a result. A friend recommended I try it to help me sleep, so I quit drinking coffee and tried CBD oil.
Why I chose this product
I searched online for a high quality, consistent product and was okay paying a premium. I’ve only tried NuLeaf so far.
I started with 5 drops of NuLeaf and have now settled on 3/4 of a little serving tube.
I actually had a hard time figuring out if it was helping me sleep when I took it at night, or if it was the placebo effect. I eventually stopped using it for relaxation and now use it for menstrual cramps.
5 out of 5:
It’s been amazing for cramps! I’ve been able to cut back on the 8 – 10 Advil pills I was taking every month. I start a couple of days before, and it’s makes a world of a different for those few miserable days.
