I’m Trying the Most Recommended Hemp CBD

It turns out I’ve become somewhat of a CBD oil connoisseur, self proclaimed. I’ve tried so many different brands of CBD oil. Some of them were really good, some of them were, meh. I’ve tried flavor and unflavored tinctures, CBD rubs/ointments, and sprays.

I take CBD to help with my anxiety, ulcerative colitis symptoms, and IBS. This is not medical advice, I just feel it helps me get some relief of some of my symptoms and helps with sleep.

I was contacted by Calm by Wellness to try their CBD. My favorite way to take CBD is via tincture with a few drops under the tongue. Flavored or unflavored it really doesn’t matter to me. I received a bottle of their tincture to try in strawberry lemon-aid flavor.

Before I accepted I had to do a little research. One thing I always worry about is any amount of THC. I’m a healthcare worker and mom of 4. I have no desire to be high or fail a drug test. Calm by Wellness products are 100% THC free.

Calm by Wellness grows their own hemp which is non-GMO certified, organic, and uses USDA certified seeds. They also have the highest level of food grade certification possible with ISO9001 and CGMP certification. There’s a lot more info on the Calm by Wellness About Us page.

They also advertise about features on different sites. Perhaps the most interesting to me was the article on the American Sleep Association site that included Calm by Wellness.

I took my first dose last night and again this morning. The strawberry lemon-aid flavor (I’m not misspelling it, that’s their flavor name) is pleasant. It’s not tart or overwhelming. It’s more of a subtle hint of flavor that made it pleasant to hold under my ton for a few seconds as you should with tinctures.

I’m gonna do an update post in about a week and let you know my continued feeling on Calm by Wellness CBD tincture. Until then, I encourage you to check out their site to learn more about them and a little more about CBD in general and decide for yourself if it’s for you.

TrustBrothers CBD Review + FREE Product Offer

This post is not intended to give medical advice. What I have written about is my own personal experience. As with any supplement it’s always a good idea to talk with your doctor if you have concerns.

I’ve written about CBD products a couple times on my blog and social media. I’ve also mentioned in a few posts that I deal with IBS and Ulcerative Colitis. I am on prescription medication for my moderate ulcerative colitis. I also deal with anxiety and depression which tends to be a vicious cycle with the IBS and UC as my anxiety can kick my symptoms up or if I’m having a UC flare up it can kick my anxiety up.

I see my GI doctor regularly. Worried about the side effects and long term effects of some of my medications I started searching for more natural options to supplement my current medications.

In my research, CBD oil kept coming up again and again. There are several research studies and articles about the effect of CBD as an anti-inflammatory. There is also some research out there about a number of other benefits. I’m not a doctor or a pharmacist and I encourage you to do your own research and talk to your doctor before starting any supplement.

With that being said, I turned to CBD supplements when my anxiety meds were starting to make my blood pressure drop and my GI doctor wanted me to go on an even stronger med for my UC. The current medication I’m on for my UC was still allowing me to have periodic flare ups, several a year. I would also have horrible burning pain in my colon and my anxiety was getting difficult to manage at times. Since I’ve started using CBD oil in addition to my UC medication I’ve not had any flare ups. I’ve been using CBD products for a little over a year. I’ve also not had to take the anxiety medication that was causing my blood pressure to drop.

Not all CBD product are created equal though. I’ve tried a few brands. There was one direct sales CBD product that was super expensive and wasn’t worth the bottle in was in. There are also different mg dosages so keep that in mind.

See offer before for FREE CBD oil just pay shipping deal

I tried the Hello Happiness CBD Oil 750 mg from Trust Brothers. The oil has absolutely no taste so it’s not unpleasant to put a few drops under the tongue or mix into your drink. One serving size is considered 15 drops and there are about 60 servings in a 30 ml bottle.

I usually take it in the morning before I go to work.

Because of my anxiety I sometimes difficulty sleeping which is why I also requested to try the Trust Brother CBD Sleep Spray. One or two spritzes under the tongue before bed. Again there’s no flavor to it so you don’t have to worry about going to sleep with a bad taste in your mouth. My only complaint with this is that it tells you to spray under the tongue but the type of sprayer on it kind of makes it go everywhere in your mouth.

It typically takes me about 2 hours of laying in bed before I can actually fall asleep. I noticed after only about a half hour or so after the spray that my eye lids became heavy and I was able to fall asleep more easily.

In comparing it to other CBD oil brands I’ve tried this is higher up on the list of quality for me.

Eco-Friendly Back to School Supplies Guide

Good for you for being interested i learning how to do better for the earth while supplying your kids what they need for their education. We have lot of options now for reusable and/or sustainable school supplies than ever before.

Book Covers

We use stretchy cloth book covers. They have smaller and larger ones available. They stretch easily over my kids textbooks and don’t fall off. They’re washable, reusable, and come in lots of colors and designs. We have several book covers that have been around for several years. I think we’ve had one get a hole in it but they can be easily repurposed into hair ties, hacky-sacks, barbie doll clothes, or whatever you can think of. You can find them in-store at Walmart too really cheap.

Snacks

Our school allows our children to bring in snacks. We can send them in daily, weekly or for the entire month. Reusable snack bags are not only eco-friendly, but also saves money in the long run. I have 4 kids, I can go through a box of sandwich bags or freezer bags in a blink. Even buying the generic brand it adds up.

There are clear reusable snack bags that look more like the normal sandwich bags and freezer bags. Then there are cloth reusable food storage bags that come in fun designs.

Pencils

There are lots of options for more earth friendly pencils. There are plantable pencils, pencils made from recycled newspaper, and if you just have to have a mechanical pencils there are even mechanical pencils made from bamboo.

If you’re a pencil snob and just have to have the Ticonderoga brand #2 pencils well Ticonderoga envirostik is your answer. It’s a natural wood pencil from “responsibly managed” forests. And still the #2 designation.

Erasers

This one seems to be harder to find but not impossible. A company called Onyx and Green make erasers made from recycled rubber.

Glue

It seems Elmer’s used to make a natural glue but I can’t seem to find it available anywhere which makes me wonder if they stopped making it. But that doesn’t mean you have to. I found this great recipe for easy homemade glue. You can reuse an old glue bottle or use another similar reusable squeeze bottle. I’m even wondering if a clean, empty mustard bottle would work? What do you think?

Crayons and Colored Pencils

The elementary kids tend to use the crayons more while the teens seem to use the colored pencils more.

There are several choices for environmentally friendly crayons. There are crayons with reduced packaging as well as crayons made from beeswax.

You can even repurpose broken crayons you have by melting crayon stubs down and creating new chunky crayons. For mine I used a mini muffin tin for the shapes.

Onyx and Green comes through again with earth friendly colored pencils made from recycled newspaper.

Just FYI, for markers, Crayola has a program called Colorcycle for schools where schools can collect unusable markers and send them back to crayola for marker recycling.

Easy and Affordable Eco-Friendly Swaps

I’ve been wanting to do better in regard to making better choices for the earth. I realize there is a lot of changes I need to make. It’s a little overwhelming. One thing I started doing was to keep a stash of reusable shopping bags in my car so I wouldn’t forget them when I’d go shopping. Here are a few more changes I’m making

Choosing Eco-friendly Stores

I’ve been shopping at Aldi more. Even though it’s a bit out of the way they’ve been more eco-friendly for a while and continue to make changes to do better, themselves. Aldi fairly recently announced they would be moving to fully sustainable packaging by the year 2025. There are tons of options for reusable shopping bags out there. I’ve actually got quite a few from local events, swag bags, etc for free.

Making Eco-friendly Swaps

So one issue I kept having was disposable utensils. We have a lot of get-togethers with a lot of people multiple times a year. The idea of washing that many dishes and utensils was daunting but the reality is, I don’t own enough for the amount of people that come to our parties. Initially when looking into biodegradable or sustainable disposable products they were pretty pricey for a minimal amount.

A fate, facebook post helped me to find Avoplast. Avoplast is 100% eco-friendly disposable utensils and straws made from avocado pits! As if there was any more reason to love avocados. How affordable are these? Well as a an example the Avoplast forks come in a 24 pack with free Prime delivery.

It doesn’t appear that Avoplast makes disposable plates or napkins though but there are lots of options for biodegradable plates and biodegradable napkins.

I also found this 114 pc set from Earth’s Naturals that has service for 16 people at a reasonable price.

Everyday Eco-friendly choices

My nieces have some kind of crazy obsession with straws. I keep stainless steel straws handy when they visit. What i like about stainless still straws is, they’re sturdy, they hold up well, and they come in different sizes. They have everything thing from regular size straws to Boba straws. I tried glass straws but they just didn’t hold up in our house. The stainless steel straws definitely do better.

Check out this set of 10 stainless steel straws with silicone tips (a little safer for the kids). It also comes with cleaning brushes. They actually gave me a coupon code to share with you too that is valid until Sept 9, 2019. Use code: METST5FF to get this set for only $5.99 with free shipping! (expires 9/9/19)

Some local convenience stores allow you to buy a branded reusable travel mug and refill coffee for a lower price or even offer so many free refills. Save money and the environment but using reusable water bottles too. There are plenty of different sizes and options from glass, stainless steel, BPA free plastic, and more.

Earth Friendly and Family Friendly Cleaning

There’s lots of reasons to swap out your cleaning products. Not just environmental but for your families health. Fumes and chemicals in some cleaning products can actually cause more harm than good.

There are more eco-friendly options in your grocery store with reduced packaging and free of chemicals but you can also make your own. A simple vinegar and water solution can be great for cleaning windows, counters, and more.

There are also essential oil companies that offer safer cleaning options and essential oil recipes. Simply Earth actually has a subscription service that send you several essential oils each month with natural product recipes. Everything from cleaning products, hygiene products, cosmetics, and more.

You can also choose products that are reusable and let you clean without chemicals using water. E-cloth is an affordable alternative with chemical free options to clean windows, scrub dishes, even remove make up with just water. I’ve used these products myself and they work better than I ever thought. Who knew you can get a good clean with just water?

Are you trying to make earth-friendly changes? I’d love to know what you are doing.
