How CBD Changed My Life

CBD. It seems to be all the talk right now, especially in California. Some people think it's taboo (it's not), but the truth is, it is probably one of the best things you could be doing for your body on the daily. Two drops of this superfood helps reduce inflammation, adjust imbalances, and brings overall wellness to the body. "CBD mainly interacts with the body and throughout the brain via the Endocannabinoid system – the body’s ‘master regulatory system.’ By working synergistically with the ECS, CBD works as a ‘multi-target’ therapy and is able to treat many things, as opposed to an analgesic pain medication, which reduces pain and nothing else. The core causation of many illnesses is inflammation. By helping treat inflammation, CBD is able to act as an effective preventative treatment for many different issues. Our two main receptors can be found within our brain, nervous system, as well as peripheral organs and tissues."

Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is not psychoactive, and it will not get you high. It comes from the same plant as marijuana and hemp, but people are often misconceived with anything that has to do with the Cannabis plant.  You can use CBD to help with pain relief, anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, neuroprotectant, and as an anti-oxidant. Women in particular can use it to help with PMS and hormone imbalances, headaches, stress, and pain. Not only does it help with pain relief, but it significantly reduces inflammation in the body; think of it as helping out all of your hard working organs. Along with these benefits, CBD can significantly help combat anxiety, fight cancer, and treats sleep issues.

A little less than a year ago, I was on the hunt for the best CBD on the market. I went around and looked at what people were talking about. The majority of what I was seeing was oil-based and you had to take two full droppers, twice a day, for the proper dosage. Leef Organics is, hands down, the best brand on the market. Their values, ethics and products are pure. Made from pure extract, the potency is higher and two drops will do. The THRIVAL CBD is produced using a whole plant cold-pressed fermentation process, creating the purest form of CBD. Because the process is cold-pressed, all of the active compounds and nutrients are retained. Extract isn't the only way to get your dose of CBD. Soap and topical oils are just as important because our skin is our biggest organ. Check out their full line of products here.

While I value my health and try to do the best for my body, I make sure my dog's health is a top priority as well. Leef Organic's has a partner company called Paleo Paw, which specializes in CBD products for your pup. If your dog has joint problems, allergies, or anxiety, CBD is a great remedy to incorporate in your dog's everyday life. Paleo Paw believes in natural and healthy alternatives to boost their health and wellness. A happy and healthy dog means a longer life, and who doesn't want that? My pup is so important to me and I want to make the best choices for his life and health.

I have partnered with both Leef and Paleo Paw to give away a package of all of their products for you and your pup. To enter, visit my Instagram for details.
