Late January 2020 YL made an announcement that almost brought me to tears. Dramatic, I know but it’s true. I literally couldn’t wait to call my husband because CBD had become such a huge part of our lives – we literally use it on my dog. You know that elephant on your chest or the feeling of chaos in your mind? Dreaded anxiety. CBD has become one of my many tools in managing my anxiety. In my research I have found that it is good for other things as well which is just an added bonus.
So let me tell you a bit about CBD. Not in the nuerotransmitters scientific kind of way (I’ll let you do that research on your own if you want) that is simply just not my strong suit nor how I talk. So here we go. CBD is found in marijuana and the hemp plant. It is responsible for balancing the systems in our bodies, one being your nervous system. You hear of so many people with autoimmune disorders turning to CBD due to the systems it affects.
CBD will not get you high, will not give you cotton mouth, will not increase your appetite. That is THC’s job and the THC is extracted from the hemp plant and removed, leaving only CBD. You feel calm without feeling high. It’s like a nice warm hug. My shoulders relax, my mind stops racing and the feeling of doom subsides.
Systems CBD affects//
Okay so the kit. It comes with a roller, a dropper bottle and muscle balm. We partnered with Nature’s Ultra – a company we trust and love – who provides the CBD and adds our most calming YL oils to them for extra effect. Just as we are with our oils, so we are with our CBD. Do your research. CBD is blowing up. You are seeing it all over, however, you get what you pay for and Lord only knows what is in the $10 dropper bottle you got from the random gas station on your way to the shore. Yikes.
The kit is $165 and will get you your YL membership (which means you can reorder or order anything you want from YL at wholesale – no monthly commitment whatsoever, relax). I know you will want to re-up on your dropper bottle so I highly recommend just grabbing the kit. If you are already a member, this is available to you for purchase right through your account!!! Ugh, that still makes me smile.
🌿 Roller: I uses this throughout the day- rolling on my neck and along my spine.
🌿 Balm: as needed on pain points
🌿 Droppers: at night or even during the day if my anxiety is strangling me
