CBD gets good branding from these businesses

Our society has put some wrong, negative labels on mental illness, making it worse and preventing people from getting the help they need. So, in people with anxiety and depression disorders, the discomfort takes over, this is very real, you don’t recognize yourself, on top of the disease, you tend to feel “lesser and lesser.”
Please don’t be alone, reach out, connect, your life is too precious, and the world needs you. There’s always a solution, a way out, always. I know, you’re not alone, I’ve been there too often.
The anxiety world is not pretty, but you don’t need to hide it.
The truth is, if you are anxious, you’re suffering! Anxiety has a reason to exist, and the path to recovery is to know the “why’s” behind it. There’s no way around it. Your body and soul are signaling you to look deep.
When I started having panic attacks a few years ago, I was on the brink of severe burnout. When I look back, I now see that I was always looking behind my back, not feeling whole, trying to prove my worth through the
eyes and opinions of others, getting approval, being seen as a good, smart girl.
In short, I was hiding my true self and putting out in the world what others would accept best. That person was decently very dull at the time. I guess I wanted to be loved (who doesn’t, right?) for the wrong reasons and too scared to put my whole personality there, living my own story and human art.
By then, all doctors put me on crazy “traditional” medications, which made me feel much worse. I was desperate, not functioning correctly, seeing my life, relationships, career threading thin. I dumped all the medications and turned to holistic and integrative medicine, mixing western and eastern, and never looked back.
The world of plants are evolving for 450 million years, it’s time to embrace their intelligence and wisdom
Are you a plant medicine aficionado? Yes, I am raising my hand with you. Plant-based products are always my first choice when I am down with something, not too serious.
Of note, I believe that we can combine both alternative medicines and western for better health and planet. Health care must be healthy again, taking into account your unique body physiology and genetic composition.
In essence, we already have all the tools in place to do so, and we should start reconsidering our methods quickly. Also, I am not saying that you should use any of these products, consult your doctor, and together you’ll decide what the best options for you are.
Cannabis – an ode to a brilliant plant
I perhaps came into the CBD game late, but after a few friends star raving about its wonders, I finally start trying a few brands. I was particularly interested if it could help with my occasional anxiety episodes. Besides, since I frequently travel to Portugal, and jet-lag hits me hard, I hoped to solve both these issues naturally and organically.
Cannabidiol (aka CBD) products are all the rage nowadays, CBD is everywhere! A trend is in place, investment is high, and business and products are developed within the hour. In honor of the science nerd in me, I researched a bit to truly understand what was this all about and, let me tell you, I am impressed!
The Cannabis plant is brilliant!!!! All plants are, but seriously, I got high on this one!!!! CBD is one of over 100 chemical products found in it, maybe more that we still don’t know about. The potential for improving human health with little side effects is enormous, from pain relief, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, cancer-related symptoms, heart health, acne, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. Undoubtedly, more is yet to come.
Nonetheless, we still have a long way to go; the results on human health must be backed up by solid scientific research, and regulations put in place. There is the danger of the “CBD” movement becoming a hoax, a mill for unsafe, misleading products to grow, and we might end up not trusting it, not taking advantage of its real benefits. And we don’t want to miss this.
There’s always right in the world – a few brands are crushing it
Obscure business is taking advantage of the trend launching “hocus pocus” products. Lots of unsafe products out there already, which use low-quality ingredients that don’t fulfill their promises. Fortunately for us, reliable businesses are forging the path in the right way. They are taking the lead and the necessary steps to create brand trust, such as backing up their products with scientific evidence, research, and results.
So, I decided to try a few brands that were recommended by people I know and trust. Here they are, meet, Lazarus, Feals, and Mineral.
Truth to be told, for one reason or another, I enjoyed the experiences with all these three brands so far. They all offer premium products and go an extra mile to make you feel loved, with extra touches, these are powerful for brand loyalty and trust.
As reproducible concentration is an issue with CBD production, I ordered the products more than once, and all seem very consistent throughout. And I was surprised by the effects. It actually worked. For all of them, thanks for shipping so fast! I have no patience to wait, receiving the products right away is a must.
The wonders I found
The Lazarus brand revolves around the bespoken quality of its products, which they deliver every single time. The products are relatively less expensive compared to the other two brands, especially for high concentrations, which is consistent. The customer service is to die for, and the box arrives with little love notes, with thank you and a way to reach them early should something happen.
The spa, luxurious, minimalist feeling of the Mineral is beautiful, love the packaging, classy, clean, yummy. Just touching the vials provides an upscale experience. Did I forgot to mention, love your packaging! And, that little “Maison jar,” did wonders when I hurt my wrist, remarkable. Of course, my son loves this one, although he never tried, just because they are from Austin, where he goes to college.
“Feals” – In contrast to the other two, this brand feels so much younger and fun. Of course, they use orange throughout, who doesn’t want to try something with orange, the language of creativity, orange is indeed the new black.
The website is well done, simple, and useful. Love that they have an option to test the CBD concentration that works for you, before going all-in or order a large bottle that doesn’t work effectively for your need. “The First Flight” packaging is stunning. See the photos below.
Bottom line, you can catch the wave and follow trends, but your brand promise needs to come from a place of integrity, it is not just a pretty face, it’s an inside-out job. Furthermore, health is not something we can play with. And, better branding is good for business, it should not be overlooked after all the world must love it as much as you do.
