I took CBD oil for a week…

T’was a rather interesting read I saw the other day.

About a girl, in her late twenties or early thirties (as far as my superficial judgment goes). She might have been older than that. If she were, she probably kept in good shape. Which to me is more of a surprise these days, since most people allow themselves to slack off too much.

The last time I checked, grocery stores in my area are doing very well selling cookies, cakes and other candy.

The Corona quarantine has somehow made people forget that they’re still living normal lives, although some of them have to remain at home watching their kids, working from home and so on.

I guess it’s just people being people. Lazy as they’ve always been.

Alright, I’m rambling here. Let’s get back to the point.

So this girl went on a trip to the beautiful state of California. Long story short, she had of a jet lag upon arrival. I don’t know whence she came, but I’m assuming the East Coast. That’s a good 5.5 hours by plane the last time I checked and you’re traversing four time zones. Naturally, you’re going to get of a jet lag.

In her own words, after consuming the oil upon arrival;

‘Thirty minutes later, I was surprised by how subtle the effect was. While I expected a hazy nodding-off effect similar to melatonin’s, the oil simply relaxed my body ever so slightly — my heart stopped pounding against my chest, my legs stopped kicking beneath my sheets, my mind stopped racing. I wasn’t sure if it was the oil or the late hour, but eventually, physical relaxation gave way to mental relaxation, and I drifted off to sleep’

Doesn’t sound too bad now, does it?

I bet she slept well during that night.

For fun, here’s how things went the first and only time I travelled to the Left Coast.

I actually travelled from Overseas, from Europe. Not only that, but I had to take a domestic flight first, then go to Amsterdam before finally jumping on a plane that would take me to New York. That plane ride lasted 8 hours and when I arrived at New York it was 7 PM or so local time.

That meant that it was 1 AM back in Europe.

And, at about 9:45 PM or so, the plane to Los Angeles took off from John F. Kennedy Airport in NYC.

The plane ride lasted for 5.5 hours. Landed at 1:30 AM local time in LA. Which was 4:30 AM EST and 10:30 AM Europe Time.

And I was supposed to meet up with someone at 9 AM local time the following day.

So you can probably imagine how that went when I tried to get to sleep. The jetlag was just overwhelming.

I laid down to sleep at about 2AM (the Uber ride from LAX was surpisingly fast).

I woke up at 3AM. Then 4AM. 5AM. 6AM. And so on.

Then at 7:30 AM I finally had enough and just got up. My meeting was scheduled to take place literally 5 minutes from my hotel, so I was in no rush.

But boy was I tired. And, needless to say, that day remains one of the most challenging days I’ve had to endure ever.

I guess I should have tried some CBD oil after all, right?

Still, while I don’t recommend you jumping straight to CBD oil to cure your insomnia or sleep issues without consulting your doctor first, it would undoubtedly seem that there is some potential in CBD oil to help you with sleep issues.

Especially if you travel through many different time zones.

There still remains quite a lot of research that has to be done before we can fully say that CBD oil helps with sleeping issues. But more and more people are discovering the beauty of CBD and how it helps them overcome their difficulties with sleeping.

And that’s all I have to say on that matter.

To order CBD oil, just go to any of the big brands out there and do your thing.
