I’m super stoked to be sharing my month 2 blog post update with everyone about my CBD journey!
In case you missed my previous posts, I’m doing a 90 day trial with Full Spectrum CBD oil from Eaton Hemp in order to document how I feel from doing so! You can read about my experience from month 1 here.
Here’s what I’ve been noticing during month 2:
IMPROVED SLEEP: As I mentioned last month, my sleep has DRAMATICALLY improved since starting to take CBD! I used to be an awful sleeper, however since beginning to take Eaton Full Spectrum Organic CBD oil, I’ve noticed improvements better than I could have dreamed of – pun intended 😉 . I now find myself sleeping through the night so much better! I also notice that I fall asleep quite a bit faster now as it seems to put my body into zen sleep mode much quicker! I still do have some super early mornings and not so great nights, however for the most part, it’s been a huge improvement!
CALMER MIND WHEN ANXIOUS: I find that after I take my CBD, I almost instantly feel an increased sense of calm! Although I haven’t noticed major effects in the overall busy-ness of my mind – I do find it situationally very helpful for reducing anxiety. Again, as I mentioned in my month 1 post, I have come to love taking it before the most stressful/ stimulating part of my day. I’ve found it’s especially helpful to take it before having to do any sort of public speaking or presentation (even online ones, as most of us are doing these days)!
I was not super shocked by this, as I had read a 2018 study published by Pub Med, which found that a 300mg dose of CBD prior to public speaking significantly reduced anxiety during the speeches of those who took this dosage (1). I was a little surprised though, that it actually works so well for me – but it truly does!
It’s really hard to explain how I feel mentally after taking CBD, other than it brings the most subtle, yet impactful sense of calm over me – really the best kind of supplement any anxious person could ask for!
HORMONE BALANCE: since starting to take CBD 2 months ago, I noticed an improvement in my most recent menstrual cycle!! I actually experienced less cramps and in general felt much more relaxed in the days leading up to and during my period. I’m excited to see if I experience similar results this coming month. I should note that I’ve been focusing on my hormone balance for a while, so have also been implementing other changes into my diet and lifestyle to support this! I do however, think CBD has been a great supplement to support my body in these changes I’ve been making!
I was curious to know if there was research to back this up, and I was actually able to find some amazing studies that did! A 2019 study, published in the Online Journal of Complimentary and Alternative Medicine, concluded that CBD is in fact, a viable alternative treatment option for menstrual symptoms! (2)
I also found an amazing review on the “Best CBD Oils for PMS” which contains tons of amazing studies to explain how CBD can help to reduce PMS related symptoms such as; sore muscles and joints, inflammation, acne, and anxiety/ depression (3).
Lastly! I just want to make a little note that although I’ve been having some great results with CBD, I don’t want to make it seem like it’s the “one miracle solution” or the ONLY thing you need to do in order to see health improvements. I think CBD can be a great supplement to a primarily whole foods based diet made of organic foods, along with focusing on other aspects of your overall well being – such as building healthy habits, relationships, physical activity, community, and so much more!
So far, my CBD trial with Eaton Hemp Full Spectrum Organic CBD has been great! I’m so excited for month 3 and all that I might continue to experience.
