So let's face it.... I am a stressed out , anxiety ridden , growing haggered and old by the day from it all single mom. My kid seriously man. When I say he is extra ,he is legit EXTRAAAAAA and has more energy and life vibrancy than anyone I have ever come in contact with in my entire life. Apparently so say many of the people we meet also. If I could bottle his essence pretty sure I would be a billionaire. But you can't take their light or spirit away and really we create our own stress and allow things to bother us. I knew I needed something to help me out, pretty good at calming down and riding through a panic attack, rephrase, I used to be, and the mom stress forget about being calm in that.
Have thought about CBD before and coming across Macey's CBD 4Health booth while walking around an event I decided to go for it. Product for review was sponsored, though all thoughts and views are my own and honest.
I have been testing out the CBD lip balm I got mint flavour and the lemon effervescence powder for just a little over a week. I wanted to give them a good go and a long sample test. I used different stages of my "issues" to test how I felt , how long it took etc. Now even if say it all just became a placebo for me , so be it. whatever works right.. And it did.
To be clear neither contain THC but they must still be kept away from children.
The Lip balm:
Made in Canada, contains CBD oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter and pure essential oils , mine was mint .
Caffeine does not do well in my system, in fact I go into a severe panic attack with the consumption. I know what is happening to my body and allow the panic wave to run its course but at the same time I usually only have caffeine as part of a counter measure for my Migraines, so who really wants all those side effects on top of Migraine. I chose while we were at the event to drink a caffeine filled coffee , I purposely put myself in panic mode to test the balm , right then and there. I had people around me in case it didn't work as support to ride through the attack if needed, not being alone as usually seems to causes more panic. Right away as soon as my heart started to race I used the balm. Took about 10 minutes for me to calm down and not have the panic go any further. To note usually at night time the attack comes back severe but with all the scary physical symptoms from just a bit a caffeine during the day. I did not have any sort of attack at all at night , nothing. I also felt very calm and really good on the way home. The balm was working. I also knew that maybe at this point I was in a placebo mode as we had just been hyped form talking to her, my Aunt and mom tried products as well , and they had positive results almost right away as well. Hence giving the products a proper test. This was just for a self induced panic attack, never mind what I really wanted it for the stress and just needing to calm down.
All week long any sort of anything brewing inside myself I reached for the balm. Normal every day things that I allowed to cause me stress were not stressful for me anymore. I could take a deep breathe and just relax. The balm was soothing and started to work for me withing 10-20 minutes of whatever seemed to be going on for me. Normally things spiral but the balm stopped the spiral., So even though first initial issue was needing a few minutes to be stopped or perceptive to be turned, what usually happens next didnt happen, so spiral stopped in it's tracks. That is major for me..
Will be keeping this on me and ready esp for those shopping trips, moms you know those ones. Our trips are always those ones ;at least with this balm I can be zen and ignore the chaos more easily.
The Lemon Effervescence powder:
Sleep aid, pain relief,reduce stress, combat anxiety.
The package says one serving 50 mg, but I have used it a few servings over the week , just split it up. I am bias to the lip balm and don't think I will ever be without it actually from now on as it works, like it really works, placebo or no . Though for sleep aid purposes and to keep me at my calmest on election day the powder worked . I did not get as much of a wash of calm over me as I found from the balm , but I also used one serving as multiples.
For either the balm or powder they were priced $6.00 each or 2 for $10.00 and well worth it to me.
