Are You Skeptical About CBD?  I Was Too.

Are You Skeptical About CBD? I Was Too.

I remember the day very vividly. I was sitting outside with my sis watching our kids play in the pool. I told her that I had been struggling for several months with debilitating fatigue and low moods that started to concern me. I had seen my doctor, done all the tests, tried the drugs, then seen a naturopath, done all the tests, tried all the vitamins. Some of that helped. I increased my workouts during the week. Started a plant-based diet. Got plenty of sleep - that wasn’t an issue. But I still wasn’t feeling the way I wanted to and needed to for myself and my family.

“Have you considered giving CBD a try?  It was the main topic of conversation at my women’s Bible study dinner last night!  I was honestly amazed at all the information that was shared,” my sister said.  She explained how her friends had been helped by CBD in their individual mental and physical health journeys.

I was intrigued. I started reading articles in The New York Times and clinical studies released by the National Institutes of Health.  I found a local hemp grower who was part of the Montana Hemp Pilot Program who was extracting CBD hemp oil for veterans battling PTSD. I bought a bottle of his hemp oil and there began my own CBD journey.

I have taken some form of CBD hemp oil every day since. The more I learned about hemp and its powerful cannabinoids (natural plant chemical compounds of which CBD is the most prominent), the more intrigued I was at the myriad of health benefits found in this terribly stigmatized plant.

Hemp has been misunderstood for decades.  She is marijuana’s straight-edge sister - containing very high levels of CBD and only trace amounts of THC - the cannabinoid responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive highs.  So CBD Hemp Oil does not make you feel impaired or high.  On the contrary, it has helped me to feel more focused, even, and relaxed - a lot more like myself.

I fell in love with the beauty and power of this plant! So much so, I became a licensed grower and processor in the State of Montana. My admiration has only grown as I’ve seen so many people helped by this incredible oil.  Have you considered giving CBD Hemp Oil a try?
