Why cbd? why equilibria?
This has been quite the year. I think for all parties involved. And I found myself stressed, anxious and completely restless at night. I’m sure many of you can relate. My friend Abby Thome from The Thome Home started talking about this CBD she was using and I instantly had to know more. So for months, I would listen to her talk about it and how its helped with her stress, anxiety and sleep. Literally the three things I was struggling with the most! So I finally decided to give Equilibria CBD a try and start this CBD Journey. Here’s what happened in just two months time.
The first couple of weeks, were honestly uneventful. I didn’t really feel anything and didn’t even know if it was really working. I felt the same and nothing seemed to have changed. One morning, I started to become particularly anxious. And I even remember thinking to myself, this CBD doesn’t work and it’s just a big scam. It was also then that I realized, I had forgotten to take my CBD that morning. I was still skeptical but I kept thinking about that morning and how my mood had shifted. But I was also writing it off as a complete coincidence.
Fast forward a few weeks later, I had just run out of my soft gels and drops. I had a new order in but it wasn’t coming for a few days, which actually turned into a couple of weeks but thats another story. And the same thing, I felt pretty anxious one morning. You know, that tightness in your chest, trying to catch your breathe kind of feeling. And that’s when my CBD lightbulb went off!
It was then that I realized that the CBD was in fact working. It was the ah-ha moment I had been searching for. What I realized was that the CBD wasn’t suppose to make me feel any sort of way. What it was doing, was making my anxious moments fell more manageable, and dropping my daily stress a ton. Things all of the sudden didn’t seem to bother me as much. And I was able to deal with the crazy that life was throwing at me in a much calmer way.
The funniest part, is that my husband noticed a difference in me before I did. He saw my anxiety drop and my mood shift before I even thought it was working. He said he noticed I was happier and complaining less about little things. I guess for me, Im an out of sight, out of mind type of person. Which is probably why I didn’t notice the difference, but my husband did.
So when I started taking CBD I went with Equilibria for a couple of reasons. One, thats the one my friend Abby took and I trusted her opinion. Two, because it was created by women, for women. And understanding the women’s body and all the hormones that go along with life changes such as child birth and menopause was uber important to them. And three, because they had dosage specialist on staff to help figure out what your perfect dose should be. Remembering that every individual is different. I felt a difference in this company from the start, and they gained my trust immediately.

With all of this being said, Ive been getting a lot of questions about CBD and how my CBD journey has been going so I wanted to get these questions answered.
Q. Does CBD make you high?
A. No, CBD does not make you high. It has been proven to have several health benefits, but CBD itself, will NOT get you high.
Q. What does it taste like?
A. In my opinion, nothing. The oil drops do have some texture to them, but I don’t think they really taste like any thing. Equilibria does have a few different flavors and I have the mint. However, even the mint is a very mild flavor in my opinion.
Q. What should I start with?
A. My suggestion would be to start with the Balance Box with the soft-gels and drops, or the Brilliance Box with the soft-gels, oil and relief cream. Equilibria recommends starting with a soft-gel in the morning and the dropper at night for 1 week, and then speak with a dosage specialist to evaluate from there.
Q. What do you take?
A. I take 1/2 dropper in the morning, 1/2 as needed throughout the day, and then a soft gel at night. However, this was determined for me specifically with my dosage specialist, for what works for me. EVERYONE is different. I also use the relief cream, as needed for aches and pains.
Q. How long til it starts working?
A. As stated before, thats hard to tell. We had to make a few tweaks to my dosing until we found my sweet spot. And I also didn’t notice it working right away, but for me I think that was out of sight, out of mind. It was when I missed a dose or didn’t have it, that I noticed it truly working for me.
Q. If you could only have one product from Equilibria, what would it be?
A. This is a tough one for me! I love the drops for their almost immediate effect, but I love the soft-gel for how its a slow release and longer lasting. If I had to choose just one, it would be the soft-gel for me. Taking this consistently is making the biggest difference for me.
Q. Can I take CBD while taking other depression or anxiety medication?
A. This one is easy! Ask your doctor!
Q. Can I take CBD while on fertility drugs, pregnant or nursing?
A. Ask your doctor!
I hope this helps answer a lot of your questions regarding CBD and the CBD Journey. I know that I it took me some time before I was convinced this was what I needed. And it definitely took patience and some tweaks before I noticed how well it was working. And I am only in month two. They say it can take up to three full months to see the full effects.
