As a 54 year old woman, I’m experiencing some of the symptoms of aging.
I find it just about impossible to fall asleep at night. I lye in bed, tossing and turning, for at least two hours before I finally get to sleep. I then manage to sleep for two to three hours before waking up and starting the whole process all over again. I wake up continually throughout the night. I’m also going through menopause and suffering hot flashes. These hot flashes are frequently the reason I wake up. My temperature suddenly spikes, and I’m instantly covered in sweat. It’s super uncomfortable and often embarrassing. Despite my age, I remain extremely active. I typically run five to six miles everyday. I ride my bicycle, jump rope, kayak, swim and am an avid gardener. In the last couple of years, I’ve started to have problem with stiffness of the joins, inflammation of the muscles and overall soreness. I really don’t want to medicate for all of these problems and then deal with harmful side-effects. On the recommendation of my neighbor, I started looking into the potential of CBD. I find the whole issue of whether or not CBD is totally legal sort of confusing. I know that I can order it online, but this is strictly hemp-derived CBD products. These products are not regulated by the government and the labels aren’t always accurate. I’m a little worried about spending a significant amount of money on nothing but hemp seed oil. From what I’ve read, I need to make sure I buy full spectrum CBD oil. However, if I can’t trust the labels, how do I know?
