It has been one entire year since starting my journey with CBD. I am happy to say I feel better than ever. I’m constantly changing brands so I haven’t been committed to one product, however I have noticed a difference since I started using it everyday. I don’t claim any medical claims because legally we can’t. FDA hasn’t set any guidelines or rules on this yet. All I can do is give you my opinion and experiences using these products. Everyone’s body is different, you may have a different reaction than I do. As always, check with a physician before adding anything to your health regimen.
I didn’t realize I had anxiety until I quit smoking cigarettes. The chest tightness, loss of breathe, and the snappy attitude comes on very quickly and is uncontrollable. During the same time, I had some family things happening which enhanced the anxiety. I was started on a pharmaceutical, Lexapro. Over time, it stopped working and CBD was introduced to me. No one really to explain, so I went on a search for some answers. Present day, a year into my cannabis journey and I can honestly say I actually feel good. I haven’t upped my Lexapro and continue to take it with a side of cannabis (hemp-derived). I will eventually go off of the medication, but for now, it is working well.
Sleeping has also improved. I sleep usually all night now, soundly. Before, I would wake up a few times a night and not be able to go back to sleep. I get a full nights rest and do not feel tired the next day.
I have also noticed a difference in my body as a whole. My body doesn’t ache as much. I use topicals for localized inflammation. For example, I pulled something in my neck while moving. I used Deep Relief for two days and added chiropractic care. My recovery time was shorter than it would have been, if I weren’t doing these things.
I am committed to living a full, exciting life with my family. Cannabis has helped me be able to achieve this. I fully believe that adding cannabis to my daily routine has improved my way of life. I do not have to suffer though the anxiety and my family won’t either.
This company is amazing! Kentucky Hemp Works is in Crofton, Kentucky and run by 2 inspiring women. I wanted a brand from my state as well as all of my customers. I was told from a customer, I can’t verify that it is true, hemp is like honey. If grown in your region, then it will help combat allergies. I’m trying to verify this information, if you are a grower and know the answers please reach out.
KHW -Hemp Root Salve – Jasmine and Lemon
I’m going to start with the hemp root salve – Jasmine and Lemon. This salve doesn’t have any CBD or cannabinoids. It is made with hemp seed oil, hemp roots, beeswax, essential oils. I used this on my daughters eczema it cleared up with in a day. Her leg was full of dry patches and I didn’t realize it until it got to the point she couldn’t take a bath because it hurt to be in hot water. We put it on that day and by bath time the next day it was 80% cleared up. The worst patch was still there but not red nor dry looking. I also use this on my hands because they are extremely dry in the winter and spring time. I have noticed a huge difference from using lotion and this salve. My best friend also used this on her eczema and it cleared it up within a day. A little goes a long way with this salve. One tin should last a very long time. It doesn’t leave an oily or any residue and the smell isn’t strong either. It is so good for my family’s skin!
KHW – Hemp Firestarters
Hemp firestarters are amazing. We use these for fires in our backyard. They light up quick and burn for at least 5 mins. The smell is great, it doesn’t smell like cannabis. I always burn my old paper bills and important paperwork I don’t need anymore to start my fires. I do not use as much paper when I’m using these firestarters. These would make a great add on item to your order.
KHW – CBD Tincture
Kentucky Hemp Works tincture tastes earthy because they use the hemp seed oil to pair with hemp extract. This gives you extra fatty acids like Omega -6 and Omega-3. The difference between hemp seed and oil and hemp extract is hemp seed oil is made from the hemp seed by crushing them. Hemp extract is made from the whole plant that gives you the cannabinoids, like CBD. The benefits this tincture gives me is a relaxing, chill feeling. I have been taking this tincture at night to help me relax and fall asleep. Another thing I love about this tincture is that the hemp is grown in Kentucky.
Kentucky Hemp Works is a key player in Kentucky hemp politics. Katie, the founder of KHW, travels to Frankfort to educated law makers and others on hemp. I am so excited to support this company because of the product and what they stand for.
