    Thank you for writing this Lauren! It’s really helpful how you laid it all out because I’ve had so many of these questions for months. I’ve struggled with anxiety my entire adult life and more recently with chronic pain. A few people have suggested trying CBD oil, but it had a negative stigma in my mind. After reading a few of the linked articles, this definitely makes me take it more seriously!

    Thank you for pulling this together! I just purchased the tincture. We’ll see how it goes. Excited to try it. Just never knew what brand to try.

    I love that you have included so many brands! I’ve been using CBD oil for about two months now and I can’t imagine going back. If I know I’m going to have a stressful day at work or am anxious about a meeting I put a dropper full in my coffee and I can tell I do better during the day. I also used to wake up in the middle of the night with those racing thoughts and now I can sleep through the whole night! I use a brand called hoplite. It’s a small start up company based in Colorado (where I live) and I love it became they have different types for different needs. My roommate uses an energy one to help her wake up in the morning, while I use one they have specifically made for people with anxiety to help calm me down!

    I love this Lauren! Just to read about what you’ve experienced and read about is helpful. My husband deals with anxiety and has been using cbd oil for a year, not daily but as he needs it. I’ve tried it a couple of times and have noticed a slight something……..will prob try for a week to see if I notice more. I’m a high strung person to begin with, so I don’t feel necessarily more anxious, but I definitely could use more calm.
    thanks for writing about these various brands and ways it can be used.

    I like the way how CBD helps us fall asleep but it also helps you wake up feeling refreshed and eager to take on the day. On the other hand, traditional sleeping pills tend to just make you drowsy, which often leave you feeling groggy the next day.
    This is really a natural way to help your body get back on a regular sleep schedule rather than just knocking you out for a night.

    Thanks for sharing this, Lauren!

    You are right; the oil has a lot of benefits. It is great for dealing with anxiety; it is neuro protective and great anti acne oil. The list is really endless, by the thanks for sharing your view. It’s is a great post to share.
