**500mg CBD Oil Drops & Daily Facial Cleanser**
Just this past March, I found myself taking an unexpected leave of absence from work, my family, and my home, while I stayed in the hospital trying to figure out why I was so bloated and in so much excruciating pain?! It honestly felt the same as when I was in labour, (other than the pain was centralized, and not in my lower abdomen) as the pain kept coming in waves, and with each passing wave, the pain got worse! After a week long stay, and a colonoscopy, I found out doctors were leaning very heavily toward either Crohn’s disease or Colitis (Tuesday, April 17th was my follow-up appointment, I have posted my update at the bottom of this post). I had been researching CBD oils and their benefits beforehand for mental health issues I suffer from (I will talk about those later), but this incident definitely made my mind up about giving it a try.
I found a VERY informative woman who was selling for CTFO, and after talking with her a bit about it, I not only purchased my first product, but I also signed up to become a distributor at the same time. I found after the CAD exchange rate, the product was a bit pricey, BUT considering I had just spent over $200 on only a one month prescription of steroids and anti-inflammatory pills to manage my newfound health condition, spending HALF that for a month supply of an all natural remedy that could handle not only my G.I issues, but a multitude of my other problems, was simply a no-brainer!!
I have been on the oils for about 2 weeks now, but after only one full day, I already noticed a change…
For the past 17 years, I have suffered from, and woken up with, lower back pain every day. I often thought to myself, “If I ever woke up and didn’t feel pain, I would probably think I had died!” Well that day came. I started my first day of 500mg oils on April 4th, I took about a 1/4 of a dropper as soon as I got it from the post office, and another 1/4 dropper right before bed. The next morning when I woke up, I was pain free! NOTHING!! Not even a little sore. It didn’t quite dawn on me at first either…I went about my morning; getting the kids up for school, making their lunches, getting myself ready for work, took my pills and another 1/4 dropper full, and made the daily drive to the next town over to carry on with my work day. It wasn’t until later that night when my bf asked me if I’m even noticing a difference yet. Suddenly the lightbulb went off above my head. “Actually…it is!” Then I told him how I just noticed I hadn’t felt any of my usual lower back pain, all day!!
After that, I started trying to pay more attention to whether it was helping me in other aspects as well. I also suffer from OCD, PTSD, high anxiety, mild depression, short term memory loss, and adult onset acne caused by stress mixed with overactive oil glands.
My mental health issues are slowly becoming less and less apparent. I haven’t been experiencing any moments of depression, and my anxiety levels have significantly decreased! This, in turn, has made it so my PTSD is almost completely at bay. My OCD is no longer ruling my every day as bad as it used to, and I find I’m able to focus more which is also helping me with my memory loss. I even noticed I’m sleeping better and feeling more rested and refreshed in the mornings. I also noticed my acne was starting to clear up…this made me want to try out the facial cleanser to really boost my chances at clearing up once and for all!
The facial cleanser first off, feels amazing!! My skin is SO soft after I wash my face! It leaves what I can only describe as a subtle ‘waxy’ feel which I believe is helping to keep my skin from drying out and also is what gives my skin that oh-so-silky touch! I’ve only used it twice so far, but will be using it regularly. I plan on making it a daily part of my morning ritual. I can’t wait to be acne free, and never have to wear makeup again…unless I want to!! (Not because I have to cover up my blemishes)
With such fantastic results so early on after only just starting these products, I gotta say, I am in LOVE with these CTFO products!
My 11 year old son was having stomach pains one night before bed, and was having trouble getting to sleep. I gave him 3 drops of my 500mg oils, and within 20 minutes his pain was gone and he was out like a light!
Seriously can’t get enough of this stuff!! I am considering giving him a couple drops a day to see if it will help him with his constant fidgeting and mental focus issues…I will post an update if I do, and let everyone know what the results are/were.
* Update * April 17th, 2018 *
Had my 4 week follow-up appointment. They still are not 100% sure yet, but as of today, I’ve been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and will be treated as such, unless other symptoms surface to give way any reason of a doubt. When asked if I was taking anything other than what I was prescribed in-hospital, I told my nurse I’ve been taking CBD oil drops and explained how it’s been helping, not only with maintenance of my IBD, but also with managing my flare-ups as well as other health conditions/mental health issues, she advised me to stay on it (I call that a WIN for CBD!!) as well as continuing to bring down my steroid intake until all finished, and I’ve been advised to start taking my anti-inflammatory pills too for the next month, just for added health precautions.
Next follow-up appointment is in 3 months. Unless I hear anything back beforehand, I’ll post another update then!
