A lot of you already know that I started using Equilibria a few months ago. I shared more about my story here and opened up about why I started using CBD Oil. But I still get a lot of questions in my inbox, so I wanted to break down why I’m using it and answer a lot of these common questions.
WHAT IS CBD?
I took this from the Equilibria website:
CBD is a natural ingredient found within industrial hemp flowers. It is clinically proven to impact mental and physical well-being, when taken properly and consistently. And yes, CBD is completely safe and legal in all 50 states. It is a powerful health agent, but there is no discernible impairment (no high!).
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that interact with receptors in our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS plays a crucial role in regulating sleep, inflammation, mood, anxiety and overall homeostasis (a body’s state of balance).
Our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids called endocannabinoids. CBD and cannabinoids from the Cannabis Sativa plant are called phytocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids enhance our ability to make more of our OWN endocannabinoids!

WHAT MAKES EQUILIBRIA CREDITABLE?
Equilibria offers three main CBD products: daily softgels, daily drops, and relief cream and are proud to have their own 1,100-acre organic hemp farm in Colorado. Grown by their very own bioscience team with 30+ years experience in seed genetics, Equilibria’s CBD features 3-5 times more cannabinoids & terpenes than most of the products on the market (the beneficial parts of the plant). They never use stalks, stems, seeds, or isolates.
No recombinants. No fluff. No fillers. No middle-men.
Additionally, because they are a completely vertically integrated company, (which is EXTREMELY RARE) they get a level of consistency that most companies don’t. Instead of buying from multiple farms, Equilibria provides the same product batch after batch after batch.
WHY DO YOU TAKE CBD OIL?
I talk a lot about this here, but to elaborate, ever since George was about 4 months old, I hadn’t quite felt myself. I am truly fortunate that I did not struggle with postpartum depression, but I did notice some postpartum anxiety starting to creep in around month 4.
At first, I really didn’t know what to think. I honestly thought my struggles were just part of being a new mom. But the more I talked about it with Austin, my friends and my doctor, I noticed it was a little more than that. I felt off-balance, anxious about work/motherhood and just felt tenser. I didn’t feel like myself.
Equilibria actually reached out to me about a year ago, and though I was curious, I wasn’t quite ready to try CBD. To be honest, I didn’t know much about it and felt I needed to do more research. I continued to see more information pop up about CBD and kept hearing really great reviews — specifically about Equilibria and their CBD Oil.
Fast forward to November and I was in a place where I felt like I was ready to try CBD. I finished breastfeeding, my hormones were starting to level out, yet I still felt off-balance. I immediately called my consultant and started asking more questions and ultimately decided it was the right time for me to try it out.
The wonderful thing about Equilibria is you can talk with a real-life expert and dosage consultant (for free). I was able to ask questions, take a quiz to help me articulate how I was feeling and discuss my goals. I never once felt rushed or “pressured” into making a decision. My consultant still continues to check in with me and always asks for feedback.
DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL FUNNY?
Not at all. If anything I feel more relaxed, at ease, and not so tense. I know people who use it to sleep, but the way we have my dosage set up, I don’t find that it makes me sleepy.
The first question I asked was if CBD would make you “high”.
No, it won’t make you “high” because CBD is required to have less than 0.3% THC. A marijuana plant, on the other hand, contains more than 0.3% THC, the compound that creates the mental “high.”
WHAT IS YOUR DOSAGE?
My current dosage is 10mg/1ML CBD Oil in the morning and a soft gel before bed. Everyone is different, so I would definitely talk to your dosage consultant about what would work best for you.
CAN MEN USE IT?
No joke, I get this question a lot. And the answer is yes. Austin uses the Relief Cream on his neck when he has neck stiffness or headaches and it really helps.
