Hello everyone, and welcome to CBD Handle. Since the legalization of marijuana in Canada I have been extremely interested in learning all there is to know about Cannabidiol(CBD), and the numerous ways that it can help people.

With the discovery of the Endocannabinoid System, research into this previously obscure subject has exploded, and more is being discovered about it daily.

Over the past year I have learned a TON of useful information on the subject, and I’ve made it my mission to educate people on the subject. After reaching out to people in my life about CBD, and from the mistakes I made when I first started, I quickly realized that there is way too much conflicting information being spread around. It can be extremely difficult to get accurate facts in a world where CBD is unregulated.

I’m here to help with that.

My search for help

Back in 2014 we had our second child. With 30 fast approaching, we made the decision that we were done having children, so I made an appointment to talk options with my doctor. After discussing it with him, he suggested the permanent birth control option, Essure. These devices are coils that are inserted into your Fallopian tubes which cause scarring and eventual complete blockage of the tubes, thus preventing pregnancy. It was completely safe, non-invasive, and didn’t require surgery to be implanted, or so I was told. Why would I have any reason not to trust my doctor?

Little did I know at the time, this was going to have a major negative impact on my life.

Not even a week out from having Essure implanted I started experiencing pain in my pelvis. It was mild at first, and I just assumed it was a result of having it placed, and would dissipate over time. Not only did it not go away, it got worse.

I started looking into it a little more and to my surprise I wasn’t the only one having problems with it, there were thousands of women going through the same thing. For more information on Essure, and the damage it has caused, please watch the documentary The Bleeding Edge on Netflix

It took a little over a year to get the surgery booked for removal, and I was one of the lucky ones in the fact that I was able to just have my Fallopian tubes removed, along with the devices. Most end up having to get a hysterectomy to fully remove all traces of the Essure implant.

Unfortunately it did not fix all the problems that the Essure had caused. I was left with chronic pelvic pain, I developed eczema, and started to show signs of peri-menopause after the removal surgery. All of this at only 33 years old.

In comes CBD

With all the anticipation leading up to the legalization in Canada, I started hearing more and more about CBD. At the time it was just something that I’d see here and there and think hmm, that’s neat. It never really occurred to me that it would be able to help in my situation until I had a friend say that she was using it for her back pain.

That instantly peaked my interest, and I bought some that same day. First mistake.

CBD is not regulated, and what this means is that companies can literally say whatever they want about their products, and put anything on the labels, and you really have no way of knowing what it is you’re actually getting. What I thought was CBD oil was really just mislabeled hemp seed oil. On to mistake number two. I wasn’t ready to give up just yet, so I did a little more reading into it and ordered from a different company. This oil was a CBD isolate, and what made me buy it was the fact that it was 99.9% pure CBD, nothing else from the plant in it.

While it was better than the first choice I went with, it still wasn’t really on par with all the great benefits and relief that I was reading about people experiencing with it.

This was the point when I started doing EXTENSIVE research into it, and learned the differences between Broad spectrum, Full spectrum, and isolate.

Full spectrum oil was what I was looking for all along, but I just didn’t know it.

I found a reputable company, with lab reports and testing to back up their product, and ordered from there. The results I got from it were absolutely incredible. After just one week into using it my eczema started slowly clearing up, my anxiety was down, peri symptoms were lessened, and that persistent pain that I was dealing with was just a blip on the radar. Continued use of the CBD has shown improvements in areas that I hadn’t even considered issues before.

Consider me hooked!

CBD for everyone

After having such great results personally was when I got the idea to start up a site on it. So many of the mistakes that I made when I first started out were completely preventable, had I just done the proper research beforehand.

This site is a great place for you to come to get the facts about CBD, and I’m here to help educate anyone who wants to learn more about it.

CBD is changing lives every day. Yours could be one of them.
