I’m an avid believer in carving out a good life for yourself. I’m not talking about anything material here. I’m talking about looking after your physical, spiritual and mental health and viciously guarding it. We were created to live a full and joyful life, but if we don’t take care of our minds, hearts and bodies, our lives deteriorate into something much less than we were meant for. Constantly looking for ways to improve my quality of life overall, I’m using CBD oil over 40 and I wanted to share my experience with you because using quality CBD can probably benefit you too!
Read on for the nitty gritty…….
Believe it or not, I first tried CBD oil when a neighborhood coffee shop started offering CBD infused coffee. I immediately noticed a calming effect about an hour after drinking my coffee. It wasn’t jarring………I just noticed that I felt “better”. I was calm and focused and not jittery. This peaked my curiosity so I began to research.
What Is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many active compounds found in the cannabis plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another active compound- it’s the one that has psychoactive properties and produces the “high”.
CBD is nonpsychoactive but has a number of the same medical and therapeutic benefits as THC. So you get the benefits without the “high”. CBD doesn’t have any major side effects for it’s users and you cannot overdose on CBD.
How Does CBD Oil Work?
The human body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system , which is involved in regulating functions like your sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response.
The body produces endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. CBD (when consumed) has been shown to bind to endocannabinoid receptors by interacting with the central and peripheral nervous system, without creating any psychoactive effects . This is how CBD can help with things like anxiety, sleep, inflammation and pain.
Is All CBD Oil The Same?
This is where it gets tricky. Since CBD oil has become so popular, it has become difficult to find a trusted provider. I’ve tried a lot different brands. I’ve tried the good and the bad, and CBD oil isn’t exactly cheap! Poor quality CBD is everywhere making it tough to get effective CBD oil if you’re just trying it out. Everything from polluted soil, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, solvent residue and other contaminants can all be found in poor quality CBD sold by shady sellers. I have personally received CBD oil that was rancid upon arrival.
I highly recommend trying the oils from Lief Royal. They are a small husband/wife company out of California and they have a high degree of ethics in manufacturing their CBD oil and this all comes through in the actual effectiveness of the product.

My Experience with CBD Oil Over 40
When taking 1/4- 1/2 dropper full of CBD under the tongue twice a day I immediately (first dose) get better sleep. I sleep deeply and wake feeling well rested. I don’t have to tell you how incredible that benefit alone is! It also removes any joint pain that I may be experiencing and helps with anxious feelings. Again, it’s not like a “masked” feeling……..I genuinely feel better. It levels out my moods and just enhances the quality of my life by removing some of the negative things that just come with getting older. CBD oil is a no brainer for me in enhancing my overall wellness so I am so happy to have found a reputable company that I can order from with confidence! (Not to mention, they are just lovely people and will personally answer any questions or concerns that you have!) Check them out here and use the code LASHES for 21% off of your entire purchase.
I hope that this has been informative for you regarding the benefits of using CBD oil over 40. Have you tried it before? If you didn’t notice any benefit, you may have gotten a poor quality CBD oil. We are all different but I highly recommend trying this company if the benefits I’ve talked about could help you. (Don’t forget to get the 21% discount with the code LASHES) At least you’ll know you are getting the highest quality CBD oil to truly see if this can enhance your life over 40, because when you look at the evidence- what have you got to lose?

Jennifer, do let me know what you think! This little bottle has a firm place on my bedside table.
I’ve never tried CBD myself, but I’ve heard such amazing things about all of the different benefits. I really ought to take the plunge and give it a try xo
I tried melatonin with CBD a few years ago and remember it helped me sleep better. There are so many brands out there it’s overwhelming to figure out which one you can trust. I definitely want to try this! Thanks for sharing your honest review!
