The cannabis industry is growing rapidly. CBD hemp oil is one of the more popular hemp products in the health industry because of its benefits. Extracted from hemp seeds it contains tons of vitamins and minerals making it a great natural supplement. Since it is low in THC it gives you all the benefits of hemp without getting you high. There are even other plants that contain CBD that are not hemp!
It interacts with the body through the endocannabinoid system or EDS. This system regulates the body’s state impacting your mood, sleep, appetite, hormone regulation, pain management and immune response. It’s also a natural anti-inflammatory. Modern science is becoming more aware of these benefits and is using CBD hemp oil to treat illnesses such as eczema, Alzheimer’s and type 1 diabetes. One child in Ireland was even able to treat his severe epilepsy by using CBD oil and is now over 250 days seizure free.
It has extraordinary benefits and is completely legal, shipped all over the US and you don’t need a medical card to purchase it. A lot of people are trying it for the first time to help with everyday problems like pain or to help you have better sleep. Tamara Pridgett, a millennial living in New York City is one of these people. She stumbled upon it, was intrigued and decided to give it a try. (1)
Tamara and Her Experience with CBD Hemp Oil
Tamara is always striving to look and feel her best, but being as busy as she is can make it hard sometimes. Between balancing a new job, her own personal training business and other hobbies her health was put on hold which took a toll on her health. She came across a product by Mineral Health called “Robyn”, a type of CBD oil said to promote balance, recovery, and calmness. She began taking it to help find balance in her mind and body and found it had 3 amazing effects on her body.
1. Better Sleep
The first time Tamara tried CBD oil was after an exhausting 19-hour day made up of training clients, working out and writing. Wanting to test the oil she took the recommended dosage for restorative sleep and went to bed. She reports that “the next morning I woke up feeling surprisingly refreshed It was the first time in more than three months that I had slept through the entire night”. As someone who wakes up often in the night she was delighted to find she slept till morning, she even noticed that she was able to sleep better.
2. Effective Pain Management
Being a personal trainer, Tamara’s workouts are often super intense. She loves to sprint, lift weights and run half-marathons, but her recovery process has been slacking. After running a 5k and lifting weights she decided to take a dosage of CBD oil to see if it could help with the pain management she usually experiences after working out. It worked! Instead of her muscles crying out in pain it felt “like they had received a five-star message”. She was able to tie her shoes with no aching pain and felt good enough to do another workout the next day
Being a busy women Tamara’s brain is constantly operating. She says “ I have days where I can’t focus on anything except for all my thoughts, incomplete tasks, and ending up alone”. She decided to take a dropper of CBD oil before heading to work and felt her day was a lot more productive. It even helped her with writing allowing her to focus in on her words and get past all the “word vomit”.
Overall, Tamara enjoyed her experience and feels that taking CBD oil did have a positive effect on her body and mind. She doesn’t take it religiously but concludes “I know that whenever I’m feeling stressed or just need a better night’s sleep, I’ll be able to find balance.” (2)
