Taryn Shank of thoughtfullythriving.com: How Yellow CBD Makes Me Feel
Hi there! I’m Taryn, a holistic health coach and owner of thoughtfullythriving.com.
I help men and women reshape the relationship with food by ditching diets and guilt to find freedom and love for themselves. I live in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona where I run my online business! I love hiking, getting outdoors, moving my body and being in the sunshine! Those are a few things that light me up and make me happy! I am very passionate about health and wellness . You can always find me in the kitchen cooking up something good, researching more about the latest health news and what I can do to help my body from the inside out.
I believe in taking care of ourselves and our health on a daily basis to feel optimal from day to day. I do many things on a daily basis to lower inflammation and anxiety and increase my mood. I am a huge advocate for mental health and think that is one of the most important aspects of a healthy lifestyle. CBD is something I recently introduced into my lifestyle and I have to say I am absolutely loving it!
I came across Yellow CBD and I had to try it because I love what the company stands for. I love their vibe and I really love that Yellow’s mission is simple. To bring happiness to everyone. Pure. Simple. Happiness. How it should be, right?! When you’re healthy you’re usually happy! The two go hand in hand. After taking Yellow CBD for over 30 days and sharing it with my community , I had so much interest in CBD I wrote a blog post on my experience highlighting all of the amazing benefits that I felt and why I feel people should be taking more CBD! Of course I highlighted Yellow CBD in my post because it is one of the first CBD products I’ve come across that actually WORKS for me . Many other CBDs I’ve tried were low doses, not pure. Promising results they didn’t deliver. Yellow's team saw my post and reviewed it. They loved it so much that they asked me to be an author on their blog for their brand!!! I am so excited to help them spread the word about the amazing benefits of CBD and the Yellow brand mission.
Now, let me tell you a few reasons why I’m loving Yellow CBD and where I have seen a benefit in my daily life.
Imagine yourself near the ocean watching the most beautiful sunset with orange and yellow tones covering the sky.
You’re smiling with pure joy and happiness at the simple things in life.
You feel increased energy and pure happiness all around as the sun sets before the start of a beautiful new day.
That's how CBD makes me feel.
Increased energy and focus. More happiness and joy like how I feel when I watch the sunset over the ocean. Peaceful. No worries. Nowhere to be. CBD is a great tool for helping you live your best life and be content and joyful in the moment!
I started taking CBD to help with my overall wellness. I had to try a few different brands before I found Yellow, the first one that I felt effects from. After a few doses of Yellow CBD, I started noticing all the difference in my mood throughout the day. Calm, steady and happy!
This was just the first reason I got hooked. Then, I started using Yellow CBD for other things like, when Aunt Flo comes to town and cramps are unbearable , CBD to the rescue for some relief! Or when I'm having too many sleepless nights, hello CBD to help me sleep sounder. Traveling can be stressful, especially if you fear flying – like me! I don't think I can ever fly without CBD again. It calms me down so much before flight or travel. My body doesn't go into flight or fight mode.
I have seen such a positive difference in many areas of my life that are directly related to my mental and physical health since taking Yellow CBD consistently. CBD isn’t a cure all but it helps me in so many ways.
If you’re not sure about CBD and still have a few questions, I totally get it! I had no idea where to start, if this stuff was even legit or what CBD even was before I did more research!
Let me help you get more familiar with CBD!
To start, CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a primary compound in the cannabis plant that has the potential to provide relief to a wide variety of symptoms. CBD interacts with your body through balancing and regulating the endocannabinoid system which monitors everything from sleep to stress. Just like your neurotransmitters (like serotonin and dopamine) are chemical messengers of the nervous system. Endocannabinoids are the messengers of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), and are produced throughout your body. The ECS can be thrown off balance quite easily causing an array of issues. CBD (Cannabidiol) helps support and balance your ECS.
CBD does not get you high . Although CBD is extracted from the hemp plant it is not the same as marajuana. Some CBD can contain up to 0.3% THC but that is not enough to get you high.
What CBD should you start with? I always recommend Full Spectrum CBD . Why? The main difference between broad and full spectrum is that broad spectrum does not contain any trace of THC. Full Spectrum CBD contains up to 0.3% THC making it much more effective than broad spectrum. However! Even though Full contains a trace amount of THC, it still CAN NOT GET YOU HIGH.
Full Spectrum maximizes the benefits CBD provides because it combines other cannabinoids found in the plant which gives a higher therapeutic benefit.
Some tips I’ve learned since taking CBD: CBD loves fat and is best absorbed when taken with fatty foods . (MCT or coconut oil is often added to tinctures which is best)
You can take it any time of the day but I like to take mine in the morning first thing to feel the effects throughout the day.
Hold it under your tongue for a minute or longer for the best absorbency.
Go for higher MG tinctures . I stared at 250 MG and felt nothing. Then I tried a 500MG and could feel some difference. But when I tried 1000MG that's when I truly noticed a difference!! 1000MG tinctures are the best IMO because you can still take a smaller dosage of the tincture to only get 1/2 the MG if wanted.
You feel the effects of CBD better when it builds up in your system. I recommend taking for 30-45 days before deciding if it works for you .
If taking for sleep, up your dosage.
ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS look for third party tested, organic CBD or bust. ( Yellow CBD does this!)
Stay away from companies that claim they heal or guarantee results.
I hope you learned some things about CBD today! Email us with more questions if you have any. And to note, It isn’t possible to truly predict what reaction you’ll have without self-experimentation. These tips are what work for me. CBD may respond differently to each individual. I am not a medical professional or doctor. Please consult your doctor before taking if you are on other medications, pregnant or breastfeeding.
