CBD: What exactly is it? Is it legal? Does it work? So many people are still very unfamiliar with the new “trendy” product, but I’m here to attest, CBD is way more than just a trend.
Let me dive right in and start by saying I am a HUGE fan of the many positive attributes of CBD. I have seen amazing changes first hand with the affects it has had on my daily personal life. For those of you who aren’t very familiar, CBD stands for cannabidiol and is found in the cannabis plant. But before I go any further let me answer the most alarming questions first: Is it legal? YES, it is. What is it used for? CBD products are currently being used to treat patients/people with diseases or conditions such as; MS, types of cancer, arthritis, and what I currently use the products for: anxiety.
Within my personal journey, I have dealt with anxiety since before I knew what exactly “anxiety” was. Many of my friends started medication early on in high school for this. However, I never did. In fact, as an adolescent, I thought I had underlying stomach issues and had three ultrasounds done in hopes of finding the cause to my painful aches. Only to later find out it was anxiety causing the nerves in my stomach to go crazy.
My personal anxiety ranges from feeling a little anxious to stomach attacks that cause extreme pain/nausea/vomiting. For over a decade, I painfully dealt with it case by case, waiting for the pain to pass. I tried herbal teas, yoga, meditation, everything “organic” I could find, but unfortunately had little success. Until, I was introduced to this magical product = CBD. I’ve done a lot of research and I finally found a company that I stand strongly behind and wanted to share a few of their products with you because they have been so life-changing for me!
(disclaimer: this company sent me a handful of their products to test to ensure the products worked for me and they definitely prevailed!)
The company is called Serene CBD and here are a few details about them:
- Their products are 100% plant based and organic, made with zero man made chemicals.
- Their brand niche is in blending essential oils used for hundreds of years in therapy with CBD to amplify the affects of both and great efficacy of the produces.
- All products are under the federal legal THC limit of .3% and 100% legal.
- They have perfect labs showing free of pesticides, mold and synthetics.
Their products have been such a game-changer for me in helping me live life more “normally” and with a greater peace of mind. I truly believe they will help anyone who may be struggling with finding something that works for them. I highly suggest you give them a try!
Below I compiled a list of my favorite products and some basic details about each one. The Oral Tincture (peppermint flavor) is my personal favorite, but it’s totally preference and what works best for you. I also linked each product to the website so you can go check them out for yourself!
