Equilibria- CBD for Women
I gotta say, I was a little skeptical. I feel like everywhere I turn there’s some sort of CBD product being offered to cure ‘all the things’...
But, My friend Bonnie started working with Equilibria almost a year ago, and I became more and more curious about the CBD craze. Equilibria is a women owned CBD company based out of Chicago. The women that run this company are passionate about catering specifically to women. The goal- to restore balance both physically and mentally in our busy lives.
I decided to give it a try because I could definitely use some balance in my life. I tried Equilibria specifically because I want to know where the product is coming from. Equilibria own’s an organic CBD farm in Colorado, and everything is directly sourced from their farm. I also like that they have a ‘dosage concierge’ so you can figure out what works best for you, and not just guess.
I bought the ‘daily drops’ , and I used it once or twice and kept forgetting to take as part of my daily routine. But, I looked at the bottle about a month later and realized it was almost gone. I asked my husband and he casually said, ‘I’ve been using it every night before bed. I’ve been sleeping really well!’
All I needed was my husband stealing my stuff to start using it consistently. Ha! I have no problem sleeping at night. I hit the pillow, and I’m out. But, I’ve been using a full dropper (10 mg) in the morning when I wake up, and I truly have noticed a difference. The key for me I’ve realized is consistency!
What does it do for me? I’m jolted out of bed and into my morning routine with four boys (EVERY SINGLE MORNING) and it can be stressful. My husband leaves for work really early, so it’s 1 on 4 defense, Monday-Friday morning. It helps me feel less anxious when the morning feels out of control, and eases me into my day with a feeling of calm. I take a full dropper first thing in the morning, and I’ll take another dose in the afternoon, if I feel like I need a little calm in my day. Normally right before school pick up, ha!
I’ve read a bit about this because I’m truly fascinated and wanted to know ‘how’ CBD actually works. Our body naturally creates ‘ennocannabinoids’ which interact with the receptors that manage things like- sleep, mood, pain regulation, and inflammation. Its the ennocannabinoids’ job to maintain balance. As we get older and experience stressors, our bodies slow the creation of ennocannabinoids which means our system stops functioning efficiently. CBD is a phytocannabinoid that helps our bodies make more cannabinoids, and better use what it has already created. Our bodies are built to readily accept these phytocannabinoids. Pretty interesting, right?
If you are curious, Equilibria has given a CODE: HOUSEOFSHAN for 20% off your first order. I personally like the drops best. I’ve tried both the capsules and the drops. And, They have a new balm that I want to try for lower back pain.
I’m loving the effects, and apparently my husband secretly has too, ha!
