How CBD Changed My Life

How CBD Changed My Life

About three years ago my life changed for the worst. I noticed getting light headed, syncope episodes, as well as my chronic pain had increased to a point where I had to do something about it. Each day I was struggling to get out of bed, and start my day. My joints were popping, my head was pounding, and I had lost motivation for just about everything. I was sent to a Neurologist and Cardiologist at Vanderbilt to dig deeper into the issue. Later that year I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. I have a Service Dog to help with high heart rate alerts but nothing has helped with the endless, and nasty symptoms. This is when I decided I needed to take a different approach and try something new. I knew that there was no way I was going to "cure" myself but what I did know was I was done taking endless amounts of prescribed chemicals.

After doing much research I found that trying CBD would be my best bet if I was going to try and eliminate my symptoms without the use of more prescriptions. I decided I was going to try CBD since I had heard such great reviews about it and the benefits it can have on the mind/body. My first experience with CBD was when I decided to purchase a 1,000 mg of the full spectrum tincture oil. The first two weeks I took three drops each day (morning, evening and nighttime). This is when I realized I had made the best decision for myself.

CBD has changed my life for the better in more ways than I thought. My joint pain has become manageable, and my body overall feels more alive. My migraines have been limited so much to the point where I do not take my Migraine medicine anymore. I also have horrible anxiety when it comes to just about anything, and the CBD tincture has definitely helped my anxiety to subside. I was not even planning for the CBD to help my anxiety (mainly because its so out of control) but to my surprise it did! I am forever grateful that I chose to try CBD and give my body something that was natural and not harmful.
