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 I had been doing a ton of research on CBD and knew it would help me – 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 bundle. 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.
You don’t have to grab the bundle, you can just grab the droppers by themselves! The bundle is the best bang for your buck though, and I guarantee you will end up using all three things daily.
🌿 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
Now we have three flavors of CBD, each target different needs. See the image below.
