Equilibria CBD Review
Okay… I’m so thrilled to finally share why I’m taking CBD and my Equilibria CBD review with y’all! If you’re an Instagram follower, then you may have seen me talking about Equilibria over the last few months. It has been an absolute game changer! Honestly, it makes me tear up because it’s helped so much with my anxiety.
Since I’m sure many of you have questions, I wanted this post to be as informational as possible so I’m doing it in a Q&A format. Some of your questions may not be answered here, but you can check the Equilibria CBD website too. Or, feel free to leave a comment below!
WHAT IS CBD? AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE EQUILIBRIA?
CBD is a cannabinoid found in the Cannabis Sativa plant (aka “hemp” plant”). It’s a non-intoxicating cannabinoid known for its anti-inflammatory, pain-reducing, and mind-lifting effects. Plus, did you know we actually produce natural cannabinoids?
So why Equilibria? Well, I did not want to get on a prescription medication for my anxiety, but it was getting much worse, so I was getting desperate for something to help. I really wanted to try CBD, but I had NO idea which brand was legit. Then I saw a blogger friend post about Equilibria CBD. I absolutely loved the fact that they had a “dosage specialist” you could chat with before you started taking anything.
I hopped on a call with them the next week and OMG did I learn a LOT! Equilibria has their own farm, so they grow and produce the CBD which allows them full control over the quality of their products. AMAZING. Also, their products contain THC but only less than 0.3% so there is no way you will get high!
WHAT ALL DOES IT HELP WITH?
The biggest thing it’s helped me with is anxiety and stress. I’m much calmer and relaxed in difficult situations. Also, the relief cream has helped me a lot with my menstrual cramps.
I have ovarian cysts and extreme menstrual cramps, so I typically have to stay on birth control. When it is “that time of the month” I usually have to take high dose naproxen (Advil/Aleve) for my cramps. After getting the Equilibria CBD products, I remember the first day I started my cycle I thought, “Okay, it’s time to test this stuff out!”. I started cramping right before bed, so I rubbed the relief cream around my lower abdomen and didn’t take ANY pain medicine. I remember going to bed thinking this wasn’t going to work and I’d wake up in the middle of the night with severe pain. NO PAIN. NO CRAMPS. NOTHING.
Sign me up for life. K thanks.
Equilibria member’s have reported that CBD can help with a range of things from stress to sleep. Here’s a great blog post we have about why taking CBD daily is beneficial: https://myeq.com/blog/basics/why-you-should-take-cbd-every-day/
WHY DON’T YOU GET A PRESCRIPTION FROM YOU DOCTOR FOR ANXIETY?
I would much rather take something natural and implement self-care strategies instead of a prescription. Personally, I think too many people turn to a doctor first instead of getting to the root of the cause and learning best practices to treat some health issues.
I have struggled with migraines since high school. They became worse in college, and I started going to a doctor to help manage them better. The doctor immediately prescribed me a migraine medication to take when I get a migraine, but they also put me on a daily migraine medication which I never needed to be on. They also suggested I do injections every couple of months to help. Finally, I got so fed up with all the medications and injections because I didn’t think they were working. I did some research myself and found a chiropractor. On my very first visit he gave me a basic neuro exam. None of the doctors I had seen previously ever gave me a basic neuro exam… Within the first 10 minutes of my appointment he told me exactly why I got migraines.
I’ve been going to him every 2 weeks ever since and instead of having 10-15 migraines a month I now only get 2-4. Also, I started working out, doing yoga, taking supplements, and eating clean which helped tremendously.
HOW LONG DID IT TAKE TO START FEELING BENEFITS FROM SOFTGELS?
I was super surprised when I started noticing my anxiety decrease in just 1 week! Looking back at my week, I realized I had accomplished all the things on my daily to-do lists, and it was way more manageable. I know everyone is different and that is why the CBD dosage specialist that Equilibria provides are so beneficial.
Normally, I wake up and my mind is racing 100% so my anxiety is super high. I always get my day organized, but then I never seemed to feel like I could finish everything I needed to do. Or, I’d get sidetracked trying to multi-task and things would only get halfway done. Now I take a CBD softgel as soon as I wake up in the morning and my mind is so much clearer. Tasks are completed to the best of my ability, and I get way more accomplished throughout the day. And, if I don’t get something done it doesn’t stress me out.
HAVE YOU CHANGED YOUR DOSAGE SINCE STARTING?
No. I have noticed such a difference with taking just one softgel that I have not felt the need to up my dosage. There is a chance I might increase the nighttime drops dosage in a few months.
I did take a double dose of the drops before a speaking event, and it helped SO much. My nerves were calm, and I didn’t have any jittery feeling!!
HAVE YOU HAD ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM TAKING IT? DOES IT MAKE YOU SLEEPY?
Nope! I have not noticed any side effects or felt more tired at all. I just feel calmer and overall mentally healthier!
DOES IT HELP YOU SLEEP?
I haven’t been super consistent with taking the CBD drops at night. However, I do notice when I take them it helps me fall asleep faster. I think I need to take more at night because I am still tense and clench at night.
DOES IT INTERFERE WITH OTHER PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS?
I have not had any contradictions with my prescribed medications while taking CBD. I have taken it with my birth control, tranexamic acid, and my migraine medication. However, there can be contradictions which you need to consult with your doctor about before taking CBD.
WERE YOU CONCERNED SINCE IT IS NOT REGULATED BY THE FDA?
Correct, it is not regulated by the FDA, but it is actually legal! The Federal Farm Bill legalized the production and sale with less than 0.3% THC in 2018. This is why I wanted to find a brand that I trusted. The fact that Equilibria took so much time to chat with me, and they have a dosage specialist I felt extremely comfortable taking the products. Along with the fact that they have a farm so you know exactly where the CBD is coming from.
CAN YOU TAKE IT IF PREGNANT?
Unfortunately, there is not enough research to say yes or no at this time. Always consult your doctor first. I am going to be freezing my eggs soon, and my doctor has informed me that I will not be able to take it during that time.
ARE THERE AGE RESTRICTIONS?
To order Equilibria CBD, you must be 18+ years old! I always recommend consulting a doctor first if you have any questions or concerns.
