For some people the meaning of being fit and healthy comes from how they look physically, others prefer to relate it to the internal workings of the system which is where I fall into, the latter group.
I understand the need and desire to look like a GQ centerfold and for a period of my life, I was in the former group, going to the gym 4-5 days a week, playing football on alternate days and everything revolved around reps and definition.
Then we fell pregnant and there was a shift. I continued to go to the gym but not as vigorously, we ate what we always had but with the tweaking of increased vegetables and omega 3 rich ingredients. I knew having a little person growing inside of me meant that it wasn’t just me I had to consider, she knew nothing about anything so a decent start in life was vital.

I began to research more natural and organic ingredients, discovering which products were high in nutrients and natural vitamins and minerals, and how it would affect the inner homeostasis of my body.
One thing that kept popping up was what was being called CBD, a flower found in nature that has a mild relation to the marijuana plant. I’d had my fair share of ‘green’ parties and experiences, so to see this make a full circle but with the conversation of being beneficial, it got me hooked.
Once the baby was born, like most mothers will know, time seems to never be enough. So the gym routine dwindled significantly, not because I didn’t enjoy it anymore but there was always ‘something to do.’ Knowing I couldn’t keep up with the usual gym schedule I decided to turn my focus to nutrition and inner well-being.
I couldn’t find the time to lift dumbbells and weight bars, but surely making changes to our families’ diet would be less effort and more advantageous. I began to read how people had completely turned their lives around once adding CBD into their lifestyle, I wanted to be part of those success stories which seemed to grow more each day I read.
CBD had more positives than I would’ve thought knowing it came from a marijuana family, but as I soon discovered with the hallucinogenic component extracted (known as THC, read about it here https://www.livescience.com/24553-what-is-thc.html ) it had all the ups without the downs.
Just the product we have all been looking for and the deciding factor for me that sealed the decision was that it was safe to use for the whole family, down to the dog, who too seemed to have a new lease on life.

And it was, we seemed to ‘feel’ younger, not as stiff as our age would suggest, and would wake up revived for the new day. The backache disappeared, the joints moved more freely, and my husband’s knees had little to none of the swelling or inflammation that became the norm in our lives for so long.
CBD working in the Endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system was named after the cannabis plant because of the similarity in naturally occurring cannabinoids. Combining with the brain’s CB1 receptors it allows for the management and optimal regulation of pulses being sent in and around the endocannabinoid system and resulting in homeostasis, a state achieved irrespective of external conditions.
