About a year ago I started exploring options because my sleeping was horrible and with working non stop on my business along with running the kids everywhere for their activities I was definitely feeling overwhelmed. My mom had actually used CBD in the past so I decided to give it a try. While shopping around I came across CBD for women by Equilibria and really liked that it was tailored for women.

Why I Started using CBD
For nearly two years I struggled with waking up around 2am daily and tossing and turning for a few hours and just falling back asleep right before the alarm went off. Falling asleep was never the problem, it was just when I’d wake for that middle of the night bathroom break, I wasn’t able to go back to sleep. It seemed like my mind just couldn’t shut down. I mean, it kind of makes sense. Being a business owner and mom of three, there’s obviously a lot on my mind all the time.
I’m a little ashamed to say that it got to the point that I thought maybe I just need to have a few glasses of wine (or a bottle) in the evening to really get me to relax and sleep. Well, I tried it and it didn’t work. Plus, it’s obviously not good for your body doing that.
My mom had been using CBD for years so I finally decided to give it a try. What drew me to Equilibria was that it’s targeted as a CBD for women specifically. A few other key points I liked? When you purchase it, you schedule a call with a dosing specialist where they will help fine tune your dose to your body and what your goal is. The other big factor I liked? It can be set up as a subscription so you never need to worry about running out. I’m one of those people that I don’t have it automatically set to ship to me or it’s not an appointment on the calendar, I fall lax and put myself and my needs on the back burner.
CBD for Women Products I Use
The products I use daily are the softgels in the morning when I wake up with my coffee and the daily drops before I go to bed.
I take the softgels in the morning with my coffee when I first wake up. I’ll do this to help get an added “wake up” in the morning without needing more caffeine. Sometimes I struggle staying on task and my mind going in 10 different directions while trying to work and I feel that I’m more focused when I start off my day with them.
Sometimes in the afternoon I’ll hit a mid day slump and need a wake me up. I never would’ve thought about it but it was recommended in a newsletter I received from Equilibria to take a softgel with a little caffeine in the afternoon for a boost.
When I’m ready for bed I do my nightly routine and end it by taking my dose of drops. The bottle comes with a dropper and you place the CBD under your tongue and hold it there for 60 seconds. I use the mint flavor and don’t mind it at all especially since my toothpaste is mint.
I can honestly say that since I started using the drops, even if I wake up in the middle of the night to pee (hello, 37 year old mom of 3), I don’t struggle going back to sleep. I’m actually waking up feeling rested.
I’m so glad that I took the plunge and added Equilibria CBD to my routine because it’s truly left me feeling more like my old self and most of all sleeping much better.
