CBD has been a lifesaver for me and it has helped keep me grounded during a very difficult time in my life. I first started using CBD during pharmacy school when I was under severe stress and my anxiety was through the roof. I knew I needed help but my busy schedule and personal desire to try alternative options before turning to prescription medication is what led me to give CBD a try. And don’t get me wrong, I LOVE prescription medications and know they save lives but I personally believe with certain things such as anxiety and stress, you should try alternatives before starting an rx.
So these were the 3 main reasons why I was drawn to CBD as a pharmacist:
1) The convenience of ordering it online and not needing a prescription.
2) Fewer side effects and no bodily dependence compared to anti-anxiety medications.
3) Not having to take it for 4-6 weeks like a traditional anti-depressant to see benefits.
Are the effects of CBD noticeable?
When I first started using CBD orally, I didn’t know what to expect. All I knew at that time was how crappy I would feel every day. I would wake up and not feel joy within me. I would have racing thoughts all day which would increase my anxiety even more. My chest was always tight and my heart was beating faster than it should be. But when I took my CBD oil in the morning, over the next 30-60 minutes most of my anxiety and tension would slowly melt away. I would catch myself being in a great mood and at ease 1-2 hours after taking my CBD and like myself again.
Because CBD was able to help me feel like my old joyous self and bring me peace, I knew I had to start Dr. Peace Lily to help as many people as possible find more joy and peace in their lives. If you want more joy or peace in your life then order my favorite product which is the 500mg tincture and give it a try!
