Leah Vanderveldt is a writer and certified nutritionist who decided to give hemp extracts a try. After spending a month taking daily doses of CBD, she decided to make it a regular part of her routine, and here’s why.
Vanderveldt had heard about the potential medicinal benefits of CBD and how it interacts with our endocannabinoid system to promote our overall wellness. From her one month trial, Vanderveldt noticed a few results that convinced her CBD was here to stay:
Vanderveldt immediately noticed that the cramps she usually experienced during her menstrual cycle were significantly less intense after she started taking CBD daily a week prior to its expected start date.
A self-described “relatively anxious person”, Vanderveldt felt she was much calmer overall on a daily basis after incorporating hemp-oil extract into her daily routine. Overall she felt that the usual anxiety triggers she experienced had less of an effect on her.
Unpredictable sleep was a normal part of her life, but after she started taking CBD that changed to more nights of restfulness.
Vanderveldt also felt her ability to maintain overall mental wellness and cope with her depression improved during her time taking CBD.
As she puts it, “I’m still me and get anxious, emotional, and blue, but knowing that I have this in my toolbox is comforting and really (as cheesy as it sounds) helps me feel more like me.”
It’s easy to see why she decided to keep CBD a part of her life. While her experience shows the potential for hemp extracts to improve your quality of life, everyone’s experience is different, so it’s best to try CBD for yourself to see how it can help you.
