In continuing with my wellness posts this month, I’m excited to expand on my recent experience with CBD, specifically Equilibria!
Before I get into how I’ve been incorporating it into my daily routine, I wanted to share more about this amazing brand and what CBD really is for those who aren’t familiar. The Equilibria team shared with me that our bodies create their own cannabinoids, which is responsible for regulating everything from your hormones to your metabolism to your sleep. It also affects how our bodies deal with stress, pain and inflammation. As women, our bodies are constantly in flux thanks to our hormones so that’s why something like CBD is such a game-changer in helping restore and balance.
Equilibria is a company made by women and designed for women, so they truly understand how CBD works differently with everyone. Some of the main reasons I love this brand is not only because of the results, but because the products are made with the highest quality (think farm to table for CBD!) and they work individually with you to find the best dosage for your life. There are three main products I use daily:
Daily Softgels: I take one of these every morning after my coffee and they are more of a slower release to help keep me calm throughout the day. Think of it as a daily vitamin!
Daily Drops: I noticed the most difference when I started doing the drops before bed. A more immediate relief, I take 1.5 drops (around 15 mg) before bed every night to help with my anxiety before bed. I had to play around the first week or so to figure out the best dosage for me and the drops underneath my tongue (to help get into your blood stream faster) have become the perfect amount I need for better sleep. If you’re having a more stressful day, a drop during the day too is a great way to feel more immediate relief.
Relief Cream: This product is such a game changer. Perfect for sore muscles, aches and pains, cramps, etc. I rub a little bit on wherever I’m hurting and truly instant relief. A great product to start with if looking for more physical pain relief!
When I started using Equilibria, I was truly the most stressed I had ever been. Balancing a full time job, the blog, my social life and a fitness routine was truly a struggle and I felt like I couldn’t calm down. When I’m stressed, it affects my sleep the most, which leads to struggling during the day and nothing seemed to be working to help. By using Equilibria, it’s giving me a daily routine, which I think is so important in helping create healthier habits. Taking it everyday in some form has allowed me to kick start a healthier mindset and most importantly, a healthier sleep routine.
I’m excited to keep sharing about my experience with Equilibria the next few months and would love to hear from you all too if you decide to try as well! You can use code CARLYHILL for 15% off your first order!
