I’ve recently been sharing some of my favorite CBD products on my instagram stories, and I thought it would be great just to share them here with a blog post and why I love these different products so much! If you don’t know what CBD is, it comes from the cannabis plant. CBD is NOT mind altering, and has some incredible health benefits. I’m NOT saying that CBD is a cure for anything and/or diseases, and I’m not a doctor, but I’ve had some positive health benefits taking CBD products. If you’re interested in hearing all the health benefits from CBD, check out this page from Healthline. If you have any questions about it, also ask your doctor if it will work for you!
Like I mentioned above, I’m only sharing my experience I’ve had with CBD. It may not work for everyone, but I’ve been getting so many questions about it recently so I just want to share my experience.
One of the reasons why I started taking CBD regularly was because of my thyroid problems, and all the negative impacts it had on my body. Thankfully now that I got a thyroidectomy, I’m feeling much better and I’m not dealing with as many issues. But, for a while I was battling inflammation, crazy anxiety, stress, headaches (still dealing with), and sleep issues. I noticed that CBD helped ease all of those problems, and I’m so glad that I started using it in my every day life.
Anxiety is something I never really had to deal with until this past year. I don’t know where it came from, but it was a struggle for a few month. It was affecting my sleep and my every day activities. There were moments I had to stop what I was doing and start taking deep breaths because I felt like my body was going to freak out. I didn’t know what to do and I thought nothing would work. I also have had headaches more often because of Graves’ Disease. Because my eyes are being targeted and have a bulging affect, it has caused me to have headaches more often. One of my friends introduced me to CBD and told me I should try and take it since it had helped her with a lot of issues. A week later I had a CBD tincture in my hand and was consistently using it. WOW the difference it made! I felt less stress, and just more relaxed. If I felt like my body was going to freak out, I would take CBD and it actually worked. It helped me relax and become a happier person!
Because my thyroid was causing inflammation, I needed something to help take it down. I’ve been taking turmeric capsule every day, but I needed something else. My face was puffy due to my enlarged thyroid, and I was retaining a lot of fluid. One of the ways I could tell this was happening was because it was harder to take off my rings (trust me, dehydration was not the issue since I drink a lot of water). I also just felt puffy everywhere, and felt like I was bloated all the time. When I started taking CBD regularly, I noticed my rings were easier to take on and off, and I felt like my puffiness went down. I also take CBD after my workouts because it helps with muscle soreness and muscle inflammation. A CBD muscle balm works wonders for that! I would rub it on my shins or wherever my muscles were sore, and it instantly helped take the pain away. I’m not the kind of person that takes any medicine unless it’s the last resort. I try to use natural remedies if possible. Because CBD natural, it was a no brainer for me to try.
Anyways, I wanted to share with you all my favorite products I’ve been regularly using for the past few months! These are all THC free, and do not have any mind altering affects!
LAZARUS NATURALS HIGH POTENCY TINCTURE
One of the reasons why I love this tincture so much is that it’s flavorless, and a little goes a long way. One serving is 50mg. I usually only take 25mg throughout the day. With my experience, it has helped with my inflammation, anxiety. and sleep. It’s flavorless, and I usually put a few drops under my tongue. This is one product I’m not sure if I can live without!
LAZARUS NATURALS CBD COCONUT OIL
I love coconut oil and there are a lot of different ways you can use it. Lazarus Naturals CBD Coconut Oil is amazing and one of my favorites so far. You can use it for cooking, baking, and making cosmetics or lotions. It can also be applied topically, or it can be eaten. It’s one of the best products to use if you’re just starting to use or new to CBD. I use this product on my sore muscles, and it has helped with the pain and inflammation! Love this product and it’s one of my favorites.
INFINITE CBD ASTEROID GUMMIES
Okay…. I can’t even begin to explain these Asteroid Gummies. Not only are they gummies and taste like candy, they’re INCREDIBLE. They have helped me with my anxiety issues and headaches. Asteroid Gummies are vegan, plant-based, gluten free, kid approved, and are super tasty! I highly, highly recommend these! If you have any questions regarding the product, check out this blog post. You can shop the gummies here!
OLEO WATER SOLUBLE CBD POWDERS
I came across Oleo one day on Instagram, and was so excited to try their products. I love what I tried, and can’t wait to share these CBD items with you. I first tried the Rooibos Tea Mix which has 25mg of CBD in a serving. The raspberry flavor has 65mg of caffeine for a good daily boost, and the passion fruit is caffeine free so you can take it at any time of the day. Back in early September I was photographing a wedding and at one point, I was so exhausted and needed a little energy boost. I drank one of the raspberry packets and it gave me the perfect amount of energy to complete the day. It also made me feel so much better with all the aches and pains I was dealing with. I love both of these products! Would be amazing to use before and after a workout.
The second one is the Instant Coconut Mix. I’m not a fan of coconut water. There’s something about it sometimes that makes me want to gag… honestly. BUT, this CBD coconut water mix changed my perspective. One of the things I love about this most, is the hydration it gives. One serving is 25mg of CBD, and it gives you extra hydration because coconut is naturally loaded with electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals. In the Coconut Water Mix, there’s no added sugars, sweeteners, or colors. It’s packed with 25mg of micro-encapsulated CBD which gives it accelerated results. One night my friends and I went out super late, and I had a little too much to drink… (definitely not proud of this, but most of us have experienced that at some point in our lives haha). As expected, I wasn’t feeling the best the next morning when I woke up. I drank one serving of the coconut water mix, and WOW. Almost immediately afterwards I felt back to my normal self and went on with my day. I’m not saying that it’s meant for anything like this at all, since it would be amazing to take after a workout. But I’ve had good experiences with this product and Oleo.

LEEF ORGANICS WILD CRAFTED CBD SKIN OIL
CBD is making it’s way into the beauty industry, and one of my favorite products is the Leef Organics CBD Skin Oil. And for $35, it’s totally worth it. I recently shared this product in a previous post about my skincare routine, and it’s still a favorite since then. What I’ve noticed most about using this product daily is how bright and clear my skin looks. It feels amazing on because it moisturizes and it’s lightweight. It’s not a super heavy oil which is what I love most. I usually put on before I go to bed, then that way when I wake up my skin has a healthy glow and even skin tone. Check out the product here!
CBD is a part of my every day, and I’m so happy that I’ve found products that have worked. If you’re interested in trying any of these products or have any questions, please let me know or ask your doctor (I’m definitely not an expert). ! Like I mentioned earlier, CBD may not be for everyone. I’m just sharing my experience and I’m passionate about it. If you have any favorite CBD products, please please please leave a comment below and let me know!
