- There are NO psychoactive or THC in CBD oil (🙌🏽) so the only thing your going to feel is amazing, healthy and pain-free when using.
- The CBD we carry is sustainable, gluten-free, no BPA, sugar free, and GMO-free and as with many of our brands, it is a give back company.
- MYTH … CBD is only for people with a major disease, pain, or anxiety… wrong! It’s great for immune system, sleep, stress, inflammation and more. CBD is a antioxidant and neuroprotectant.
I’ve been researching CBD oil for a long time and have been wanting to see if it helps me manage my lupus. I’ve been flaring hard for the last few weeks and have struggled with my lupus controlling me, vs me being able to control it. Not good.I wanted to try an option that had the health benefits of marijuana (without the psychoactive properties) or the stigma, and that was federally legal and safe. I also wanted to take something I felt safe using while breastfeeding (lots of articles out there on that). I had read an article about a girl named Charlotte (hence the name) who successfully was able to stop her seizures by using CBD oil. 🙌🏻 HOPE!
Because of my lupus, I struggle with joint inflammation, arthritis (deep bone pain), epilepsy, brain fog, headaches w/nausea, fatigue, hair loss, Raynaud’s phenomenon. I have vision issues, ms-like lesions and kidney damage after a few particularly nasty lupus flares. My body does not retain iron – so I’m chronically anemic, I’m hypothyroid, and I have off-the-charts low blood pressure. Sometimes, (noticeably more on my really high-pain days) I struggle with anxiety.
On any given day if you asked me to pick a number between 1-10 (10 being the worst) for my pain, I would say I generally fluctuate between 4-7, but I certainly have days where I go higher.
I currently do not take prescription meds because…
1) I’m stubborn
2) in the past have experienced too many side effects (which caused my doctor to want to over medicate me to balance out the side effects)
3) believe God gave us plants & food that can be sourced ethically for full healing.
Today is day 4 of taking Charlottes Web. I have read that some people experience a noticeable difference after taking it for 1 day, while for others it takes up to 10 days to start noticing a difference. I’m very in tune with my body, so I will say this: I have had a great weekend with very low pain and feel a bit more relaxed than I normally do. I have balanced and consistent energy. My husband and I even decided to paint our bedroom on Saturday. This would normally automatically sentence me to a lupus flare the next day– but so far, so good. I haven’t felt any negative side effects either. Also, no headaches, and I typically always have a small headache.
UPDATE: Okay so it’s been awhile since I gave an update. I’ve been taking this daily for 1 month. I’m happy to report that it seems to be managing my lupus well, and overall I feel pretty good. I will say, it doesn’t seem to help too much with my fatigue – but I am grateful for the lack of pain, and also grateful for the consistent positive mood it helps me stay in. Overall – 👍🏻👍🏻.
I recently purchased CBD oil and a stress less oil to treat mild anxiety and I must say it has been amazing! As always I am greeted with expertise knowledge about the various products offered at Eco Chic and this was recommended to me. I now have little to no anxiety or nerves due to stress and I am sleeping well and have a general sense of well being and calm. I highly recommend CBD oil and Eco Chic to anyone who is experiencing difficulty sleeping or any other concern, and want to purchase from a place where they can ask questions and receive honest clear answers!
I used my Select peppermint pin 2 x when I had a headache and it was gone.
