"Hello and thank you for joining us for our second installment of success stories with CBD with complete body daily. Today, we are going to touch on issues concerning stress and anxiety relief with CBD. With me, I have Alexis Thompson; she works with one of our favorite partners here in Little Rock. She is going to tell her story on how she started with CBD, and some of the successes that she’s seen with stress and anxiety. Thank you for joining us today Alexis, tell us a little bit about why you started using CBD & what effects have you seen, and how you found out about it? What about your overall experience."


Alexis

“Well, I’ve always struggled with anxiety, depression, and stress; along with these things caused sleep problems, you name it the list goes on and on. I was actually introduced to CBD, I had never heard it of, but I was actually introduced to it through our partnership with Complete Body Daily, and I am now the biggest believer in alternative medicines. Instead of turning to pharmaceutical prescription drugs like anti-anxiety drugs, anti-depression drugs, etc.  I would much rather use the CBD. It has helped me a lot more. I would rather use CBD (than the pharmaceuticals) because with CBD I don’t get the severe side effects like I do with other medications. It will help one thing, but leave so many other worse side effects than what you were trying to fix in the first place so because of that I’ve been a huge believer in CBD. As soon as I heard about it I have not stopped using it so...ya it's awesome."


Matthew

“Awesome, well thank you for sharing that, and I know it can be difficult to talk about depression, stress, anxiety, and all the things that go along with that. So, thank you for sharing. And when you add CBD to your routine what have you noticed with your levels (anxiety, depression) and more importantly, with your need for those pharmaceutical drugs that you mentioned before, are you having to take them? Or are you having to take as many? Tell us about that…”

 

"CBD really helped me focus, relax, be able to think positive, and get through with my day."

 

Alexis

“Well, I don't, actually; I thought that would be literally impossible. I still take antidepressants, but I am at a much lower dose. I do not have to take any more anti-anxiety medicine; that was the biggest thing for me. When your anxiety level is ‘through the roof’ it is hard to focus on anything. At all. Ask my coworkers: I would come into work my anxiety level would be so high I would literally go to the bathroom and throw up. It was terrible. Since I've started using CBD, I can honestly say I can't remember the last time I had a serious anxiety attack. Honestly, it has helped in so many ways that I just have seen myself grow, and how I've been able to help focus on bettering my life. Its helped keep me at a calm state of mind, and help me get over that big bump that a lot people tend to have. It’s like, especially if you struggle with depression, there is this big hump and you can't get over it and CBD really helped me focus, relax, be able to think positive, and get through with my day."

“That’s amazing. I love that. So how much CBD do you take during the day? Do you take it in the morning? Do you use it when you feel anxiety or an panic attack come on? How do you take the CBD for best results?”


Alexis

"So for me, I use the Remedy tincture, I use the 1500mg. I think a lot of people try or tend to think that putting in their drinks in the morning to help, but I have actually noticed doing what you have said; putting it under the tongue has given me the best results. That works the absolute best. Once in the morning, and maybe once at night, and you know, as needed throughout the day. But, I have gotten to the point where I have been able to completely just grow because I had something that helped me get through the tough parts, and now I don't even have to take the CBD everyday, but I always have it in my purse just in case. To me, that's the beauty of it all. It has not only taken me away from all these chemicals and medications that are thrown at you but that it also just helps completely get rid of your anxiety or get your anxiety so low or  to a level where you can focus and manage it better, know what you need to do, You can process it better, approach it better, and even fix what is going on. Just being able to approach it a lot better which And I think that it's amazing that something this simple has been able to help me do that, and I don't have to worry or think that I have anxiety I can't do this or I can't do that but I can just be normal."

"That's amazing, and I love hearing that story, thanks again for sharing. Looking at CBD as a whole, because I know you talk to people everyday about CBD, is there anything that you would like to share about CBD or outside of what we have already talked about? Like if someone is on the fence and thinking about using CBD do you have any advice about CBD for people that listening today?"


Alexis

"Yes, if anyone is ever considering, then I know if your like me I went along with the Stigma behind alternative medicines, and trying all these different methods, and I'm not gonna lie, I was kind of hesitant with it and I didnt want to believe it honestly. It's not that I didn't believe it, but I just really didn't know how and didn't know if it was actually possible. But now I'm such a huge believer and such a huge advocate for it. So I would say: just try it. Because, it is better than being controlled by medication, or feeling dependent upon on that and not being able to really fix the problem. Whereas, when you use the CBD tincture you can manage how much you use, you can control the dosage, you can control how much you want to use and when you want to use it. and it helps you just stay calm. You can think: ok hey, I still have anxiety but I can control it, or I'm not just focused on that and you can manage it better. If anyone is ever considering trying it I am a huge advocate. I would just say try it, go for it, figure out what works for you. Everyone is different, some people need less or some people like me need more than one dose a day. Just figure out what works for you, because if you want to really get this under control you have the products to do it. You have the tools, and you can control every bit of what you do with CBD. That is what is amazing is that you can still grow and do what you need to do while using something all natural and not a chemical."

"I love it. Thank you so much. That is what we hear with people, they are looking for something all natural that doesn't affect their cognitive levels and being able to go into work and be able to function in their day to day with something all natural. We love what were hearing with all the different benefits around CBD, and this is a major area that I think that can help a lot of people. So thank you so much for sharing your story today."


Alexis

"Absolutely, thank you so much for introducing me to this, it has changed my life. Thank you for creating something that can actually help and something that isn't going to be addictive like medication and that type of thing, because it (CBD) has seriously has helped so thank you."

Matthew

"Absolutely! Thank you. Alright guys thanks for joining and have a great rest of your day!"
