Back in May this year one of my best friends Angie came over to stay with me from New York.
Angie is your typical health fanatic. Everything in her life is completely organic from the food that she eats to the skin creams that she puts on her face. One evening, I noticed that she was putting some drops of something under her tongue before going to bed. I asked her what it was and she told me it was CBD oil. She asked me if I wanted to try it because it helps with all kinds of things. My first thought was that I was going to get high but she told me that I wouldn’t because there is no THC in it and THC is what makes you high. So, I spoke to my doctor, did my research and decided to give it a go.
I looked online for the best brand to try and found James Dempsey at The Online CBD Shop. I bought some oil and gummy bears and started taking it straight away. Angie had told me that it would help with my anxiety and joint pain but it might not work instantly as it usually takes up to 21 days to take effect. I knew that I had to be patient (which is very hard for me) and I took the drops every day.
I’ve spoken a lot about my anxiety during the menopause and even though I take HRT, I still have anxiety on most days. Not long after taking the CBD oil, I noticed that I was feeling much calmer and less anxious. For me, the worst kind of anxiety is the anxiety that has no root cause; feeling anxious for no reason at all was one of the worst things about my menopause experience. Three months on and I can honestly say that my anxiety levels have dropped to practically nothing. A lot of people have noticed the difference in me and I feel a sense of calm that I haven’t felt for a very long time. I was really pleasantly surprised because the whole time I was taking the oil, I really couldn’t believe that something so simple could help me so much. But I have noticed a huge change in myself. I’ve also noticed that my joint pain has all but gone. I wake up in the morning and feel sprightly for the first time in a long time. I can honestly say that it has made a huge difference to my life.
