New York, 28, Tackling Cramps with a Tincture

CBDiary is an article series that features real women’s experiences with CBD products. The purpose is to anonymously share how women use CBD, what worked, and what didn’t. We’ve learned CBD is very personal and what works for one might not for another – everyone is unique.

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.

My Dose

I started with 5 drops of NuLeaf and have now settled on 3/4 of a little serving tube.

The Results

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.

My Vote

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.
