Hi Better Conditions fam, Ashlee here! Like so many of you, I am a CBD newcomer. I have only been using Better conditions CBD for a short time now, but its effects are too good to keep to myself. I am HOOKED. Since my very first time trying the Premium CBD Gummies, I’ve been dying to tell everyone about it. Now, I’m finally here to share my personal experience with all of you. Let’s get to it.
Wish I Knew Then...
Up until this year, I only ever heard rumblings about CBD. I let these rumblings go right over my head due to lack of knowledge or understanding. I knew all of the buzzwords like THC, cannabis, hemp, etc., but had no idea how useful CBD products could be. I was too busy to look into it, or too stressed to care or whatever excuse I could think of to curb my interest. Plus, I never thought that CBD had anything to do with my life, so I never looked into it too much.
Little did I know, It has everything to do with me and so many unknowing others. For me personally, CBD has helped my insomnia, anxiety and I believe it will help with seasonal depression coming around the corner.
For as long as I can remember, I have had problems sleeping. When I was young, I remember laying in bed staring at a pitch black ceiling for hours before I was finally able to doze off; the only light coming from the tiny glow-in-the-dark stars stuck onto my ceiling.
In the beginning, I would wake my parents up thinking they could solve it, because they could solve anything in my mind. But, after a while I realized that there wasn’t much they could do about it - so I just got used to it. I learned to live with the constant dread I associated with trying to fall asleep as well as the constant exhaustion I was feeling from the lack of rest.
As I got older, It seemed to be getting better when in reality, it just took on a different form. Instead of having a hard time falling asleep, I had a hard time staying asleep. To this day, I wake up every 1-2 hours after falling asleep; without the help of CBD or melatonin, of course. CBD products and cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system in the human body and regulate bodily functions such as circadian rhythms, mood, appetite, etc.
Since joining the Better Conditions family, I have never slept better. Every night, I drink a caffeine-free peppermint tea with two droppers full of the cool mint CBD oil tincture, however the melatonin formula is next on my to-try-list. One night I got too tired to make my tea and wound up tossing and turning all night. When I tell you I can’t live without it, I really mean that.
Did I Mention Anxiety?
Not only do I suffer from extreme insomnia, but like so many others, I also experience anxiety. Oftentimes, lack of sleep triggers my anxiety and vice versa--what a combo. On my best days, I feel slightly on edge. At my worst, I feel the weight of a semi on my chest, I'm irrational, flighty, out of touch with reality, incapable of reasoning with myself or anyone else and I lack any ability to focus.
Just the norm for any person who experiences anxiety--and I don’t mean that sarcastically. Along with anxiety, living in Oregon makes me susceptible to seasonal depression (SAD). So how can CBD help?
CBD helps by interacting with receptors responsible for the production of serotonin, which is a naturally-produced mood booster and stabilizer. In many cases of anxiety and depression, low levels of serotonin are in tow. Nowadays, I carry the Premium CBD gummies with me everywhere I go because you truly never know when anxiety will strike.
Sometimes I even get anxious thinking about if and when anxiety will hit me and interrupt my entire day. Talk about counterproductive. These gummies are super discreet and so tasty. Pro tip: if you are truly dying for immediate relief, drop some of the Cool Mint Tincture under your tongue for the fastest release time. Soon enough, you will feel the weight lifted off your chest and the fogginess cleared out of your mind, all thanks to CBD.
Looking back, I can’t believe I made it through life without CBD, let alone Better conditions CBD. I am so grateful that my first experience with CBD was with such an amazing and trustworthy company. Discovering a women-owned business whose owners are passionate, hardworking, transparent, and knowledgeable made this journey so simple for me as a consumer. Knowing that each product is all natural, THC-Free, organic, premium-grade broad spectrum hemp oil makes it so easy to trust Better Conditions and all of the benefits CBD has to offer. My life is better in many ways because of Better Conditions CBD. Join the party.
