I am a strong believer in the medicinal qualities of CBD—as someone who suffers from chronic Lyme Disease, I experience a variety of symptoms day to day. From headaches and joint pain, to sleeplessness and insomnia, to anxiety, my illness is associated with symptoms that the run-of-the-mill, over-the-counter pain relievers (such as ibuprofen) can not address effectively. Traditional pain medications are also usually not a good solution for long-term pain management, as taking them regularly can be harmful and unhealthy. I realized that I needed a more natural, long-term solution to manage my symptoms, why is why I turned to CBD. After trying a variety of CBD oils and products, I realized that CBD was exactly what I needed. I take it before bed to help relax me, as well as whenever I am experiencing a headache or joint pain. For the most part, CBD helps sooth the pain I experience. I found it to not only be an effective way to manage symptoms, but also one that would be safe to use in the long term. Overall, CBD has enabled me to manage a chronic illness naturally, without having to turn to heavy medications to relieve my symptoms.
I only see two major downsides to CBD: cost and taste. Many people do not appreciate the taste of CBD—that was something I had to get used to. CBD is also costly, but I have found it to be worth the investment!
After trying multiple different CBD brands and products, I have found one that works best for me: SunSoil CBD Oil drops. Made out of Vermont, SunSoil produced pure CBD products from hemp. I specifically like their flavored drops. As I mentioned above, CBD does not taste amazing, but this brand includes natural flavoring that masks the hemp taste (the citrus is my favorite). I also like this brand because they use organic ingredients and have their oils tested and approved by independent labs for quality and purity. It is a highly potent brand (10mg CBD per 1 ml is a good potency compared to other products I’ve tried). Given this potency, it is more cost effective and affordable. Overall, it checks the boxes I am looking for in a CBD oil!
