EVERYTHING you need to know about CBD!

This post may contain affiliate links. I only share with you what I truly use and believe in as a product. Please read discloser for more info.

Do you suffer from stress, anxiety, inflammation, insomnia, high blood pressure, or chronic pain? Do you want healthier skin, better digestion, improve joint comfort, and increased energy levels?

I personally HAVE suffered from stress, acne, inflammation, and insomnia to name a few. However, I will not accept my anxiety, I will not accept my acne, and I will not accept constant muscle aches from inflammation. Not when there can be a solution to the problems.

Shown in picture above is Full Spectrum 750mg CBD cold pressed hemp oil

If you suffer from at least one of those above, then you’ll want to find more about CBD oil. “Just” inflammation shouldn’t be a just. Inflammation can be the main trigger/ cause to most, if not all of your current issues!

CBD— a plant medicine that will promote an enhanced metabolic homeostasis, improve immune function, and assist in enhancing mental well-being; Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, also known as hemp oil. 

What is it? 

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound that comes from the hemp plant with THC concentration of 0.3% or less. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and causes the sensation of getting “high” that’s often associated with marijuana. However, CBD is not psychoactive, containing less than 0.3% of the TCH which is too little to have any psychoactive effects.

What is in it?

CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut/MCT or hemp seed oil. I go back and fourth between using the Full Spectrum CBD (750mg) in cold pressed hemp or or in coconut oil and honestly I’d prefer to go with the cold pressed hemp rather than diluted in MCT oil because for them to go through that breakdown process other toxins can cross paths. Focus on CBD oil with less ingredients as possible.

Have you been finding that CBD is popping up everywhere? 

Your right! There are so many clinically-proven medicinal applications of CBD hemp oil, which is why cannabis has become increasingly popular very quickly. BUT,BE CAREFUL; that you are receiving the right dose of the Cannabidiol and its lab and certified tested. People are dropping it into their coffee, nighttime tea, on their face, bath bombs, kids’ usage, and even pets!!! Okay, now that we covered what is CBD, where can you find it and how much should I be using and how… continue reading…

What brand is BEST to use for CBD?

Thoughtcloud! After going back and fourth between two other companies; comparing lab results Thoughtcloud it is. There are a few other great companies out there but they are too expensive, which tells me they are either over priced are under dosed. FACTS! Thoughtcloud derives its organically grown hemp plants from sustainable and vegan farms in Colorado. Their oils are extracted using CO2 super critical extraction, which is the food grade standard. Every single batch is tested for heavy metals, pesticides, and levels of cannabinoids present in the whole plant- AMAZZZINGG

How to use this product?

As I’ve said above can be used on the face/ body, but majority it’s taken orally. Thoughtcloud is the first to have full spectrum CBD bath bombs and ozonated CBD ointments. Drops are taken right underneath the tongue and are taken 12 hours apart. For example, if you take 5 drops at 7 AM, you will then take another 5 drops at 7 PM, serving is 10 drops per day.

How do I personally use CBD?

As stated previously above I prefer to use the CBD Full Spectrum 750mg cold pressed in hemp, 10 drops of day in the AM. At first, I started off with the lower dosage of 500mg and found it helped but wore off quickly. I have yet to find it necessary to increase to the highest dosage of 1500mg, but wouldn’t hurt to try. Depending on what critical conditions you suffer on a day to day basis would determine what I would recommend you beginning with (Email me) If you decide to split up your dosage of 5 drops AM and 5 drops PM have them 12 hours apart.

So quickly, this is what I was talking about above when I said I compared to other brands. Besides comparing lab results obviously I had to actually try them out for myself– and that I did. Another company I had to take 20 drops to even feel and see positive changes rather than just a 10 so I had to buy more to consume more; therefore it was much more costly and under dosed for the effects I want and need.

*Cortisol levels are at its highest peak in the mornings’, so this helps my cortisol levels get steady from the very beginning of the day.

Are you considering about trying CBD but curious as to how long it takes to feel the benefits?

A number of factors influence how long CBD takes to work after being ingested. For starters, the actual symptom that you are trying to alleviate influences how long it will take to feel the effects of CBD. Other factors that come into play include the concentration of the CBD and the dosage you are taking. CBD oil taking orally, right under the tongue, is a fast way to get it absorbed quickly as it enters the bloodstream rather than going through digestion or liver to have it be metabolized. It shouldn’t take long for you to begin the effects of CBD oil once you have taken it. The effects of CBD oil tend to last for a few hours so don’t worry about taking a large amount to ensure that your symptoms don’t return too quickly. 


If I’m going to use any product, I’m going to make sure I know where it’s from and how it’s produced. Thoughtcloud is the purest out on the market! This CBD cannot get any purer, produced in Colorado while using organic methods. Methods with free of GMOs, synthetics, fillers and any other harmful ingredients (every batch is tested)

Can’t get any purer than this! This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs. It is legal in 50 states and in over 50 countries worldwide!

A lot of time in life we are told we must learn how to deal or cope with problems that may stumble upon. Some problems can include basic overall Stress or more on diagnostic chronic disease levels. When these problems begin to interfere with our quality of life, day after day, we want to find a solution to these problems. Unfortunately, not every disease has a solution, but you can at least incorporate to assist toward a better solution. CBD has changed my life for the better. Currently, my stress has decreased dramatically, acne more cleared then ever (maybe down to just the once a month during that time of month) and insomnia is gone! I’ve found CBD my life savor!!! Most clients initially ask me “what’s the magic pill?” I wouldn’t necessarily call it a pill since its a liquid, but IT IS made from a miracle plant! CBD! CBD! CBD!



Recently, I’m made the switch to:

5-7 drops in the AM with 750mg Isolate CBD (its a blue bottle, cold pressed hemp)

& then 5 drops before bed (PM)- High CBN, Full Spectrum CBD for Sleep & Pain


While looking forward to try out one of their newest products:

I participated in Marisa’s Challenge from March to May this year, participating in this challenge was more of a learning experience for me. I wasn’t a big eater as I was always busy and just would have another cup of coffee versus having a nice meal because it was quicker. Marisa taught me how to balance life while eating well and maintaining balance. My big Challenge was I wanted to make sure I could still enjoy life by eating fun food, having a nice relaxing cocktail while still balancing portion and healthy eating while getting in a workout 5 days a week. And She taught me just that! I learned to do that, While loosing 10 pounds! I am not ending this life style today I am Continuing it and shooting to loose another 20 pounds but will be over the moon to at least get another 10! I am very happy with how far I come, and I have Marisa to thank for that. Work with her whether it’s to loose weight, learn how to balance a healthy lifestyle, or even gain muscle and become stronger, don’t look further Marisa is your girl!

I trained with Marisa for 3 years. She is amazing. Highly professional and very quick to return any nutritional or other questions I had. I still will only go to her for my monthly massages because they are simply the best I have ever had. She is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to every day life and fitness goals!

I've been going to Marisa for massage therapy since the beginning of 2018 and she's my go to massage therapist when I know its time for my muscles to decompress. Marisa's background and experience in fitness and personal training really stand out from the rest of massage therapy that I've had in the past. And as a fitness enthusiast that lifts 6x/week, that's the best combination for me personally. From my very first massage therapy session with her, I felt like she was communicating with my muscles without me even saying much. It's like she was sensing and adjusting based on the feedback on how my muscles were reacting. I bring that up every session because I think that's an incredible skill. If you want to talk during your session, she will talk. If you just want to relax and shut eye, that's fine with her too. Very professional. Sometimes she runs promotions and specials during the holiday, I would definitely take advance of that. Schedule a session with Marisa and you'll know what I'm talking about!
