Like many, if not ALL of you, I’ve been really fucking stressed lately.
Yes, maybe a bit more, as my husband and I moved across the country for a new job that evaporated as quickly as it appeared, but still… there’s a pandemic, and if you know me, you know that I suffer from stress and anxiety and these are stressful days to say the least.
So, after days of being stressed, my neck started to really ache. I asked my husband to rub it and to try using my friend’s new Be You CBD line and the Down Under Rub — even though I didn’t really think the creme would make a difference.
I’ve never really discussed my anxiety publically. My friends and family know, but it’s something I really try to be in control of. But, newsflash… you can’t control a fucking pandemic or its economic fallout.
I can’t lie, I’m suspicious about all the hoopla around CBD products. But, my friend gave me the full rundown about why her products are better than the others out there.
First off, they only use full-spectrum oils — which is unique because there’s no junk in the stuff.
*The best part is that it smells really, really good.
Here’s the list of ingredients if you care: Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Full Spectrum Hemp Extract, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Amyris balsamifera (West Indian Sandalwood) Oil, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Arnica Montana (Arnica Flower) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Oil
A few months ago, out of nowhere, I injured my knee. It blew up like a balloon and it totally freaked me out. I was at the Farmer’s Market in Mar Vista and a guy who sells CBD ointments and creams saw me hobbling around and insisted I try his product. He also seemed very sure I’d be back to buy it after testing the product. I never made it back because I felt absolutely no change in my knee. No pain relief and no reduction in swelling.
I’m an anxious person. My stress goes to my neck and my back. And all I can say is that when I woke up the next morning after a massage using the Down Under Rub, my neck felt 100% better.
Did I mention it smells really, really great!
