For a long time I thought CBD was a gimmick. I tried some a couple of years ago and thought “MEH. Doesn’t really work.” I turned down any CBD brand who approached me to work with them. THEN, I met the CEO of Equilibria at an event, and everything changed! I got to try their products free of charge (thank you Equilibria!) with no obligation at all. Matt and I used them for 2 months, religiously, before I reached out to Equilibria directly and said “ok this stuff is amazing/life changing, and I need to share it with my people. How do we partner up?”
I now know that true, high quality, full-spectrum CBD products can help with: anxiety/depression, sleep, pain, mood, hormone imbalance, headache, tmj, cramps, libido, focus, and more. Because between the two of us, it has helped Matt and me with EACH of these things.
I’m going to break this post down into two parts. 1. Equilibria, specifically– about the brand and the products we take. and 2. General CBD q&a (answering questions submitted by instagram followers via my stories!). As always, if you have other questions you can always ask, I am an open book.

But do I REALLY Need a SUBSCRIPTION?
No! But it is worth noting that CBD works best when taken regularly, like a vitamin. No skipped days/ months. Your body needs to find its rhythm with these products. A subscription makes sure that you will never run out, and again, its the best value. A subscription can be adjusted, as well… It will default to every 4 weeks, but you can adjust it to your liking (ie- every 6 weeks, instead, etc).
Equilibria was founded by women, and is made for women!
Their CBD is full-spectrum (they use all parts of the plant, which makes it far more effective than CBD isolate) and organic!
They own the whole supply chain, so there are no random fillers or untraceable ingredients, etc.
They have incredible sales, often!
They give part of proceeds to an amazing organization called Black Girl Ventures.
Their customer service is so good its BANANAS.
They have dosing consultants who will help you get your products and dosing exactly right for YOU and your specific needs.
Yes!!! This is truly one of the best features of the Equilibria brand. A consult with a dosing expert is free with any purchase, and it is recommended that you wait about a week after taking your products to have the consultation, so you can provide a bit of feedback on the call. An expert will listen to you, learn about your specific situation and needs, and can adjust your dose to get it just perfect for you.
Matt and I swear by the daily drops, first and foremost. I like the mint-flavored 300mg drops. After speaking with a dosing consultant, Matt’s dose was quickly increased to the 1500mg (based on things like pain level and his weight, I believe). Matt takes the drops at the end of the day, and also whenever he has a bad “flare.” It helps with his stress and his back discomfort. I take my drops before bed (they help my sleep SO much) and also just whenever I feel like I’m gonna lose it, haha.
Our second favorite product is the relief cream. Some of you may know that Matt has an auto-inflammatory disease which gives him chronic pain :(. I feel bad saying this, because it is NOTHING compared to what he experiences, but I also do have a bad back and neck, and am uncomfortable often. We SWEAR BY this stuff!!! And also, we gifted this to Matt’s parents (his father has a bad finger and his mom has a bad back) and they’re totally hooked on it too. I reach for it at the first sign of cramps (apply it to my pelvis) or a headache (temples). Matt has tmj and applies it to his jaw. We call the relief cream “liquid gold” and I think everyone needs some in their life!
***Many people prefer to get on a schedule where they take the gel caps in the morning (the are long-acting) and then drops at night; they see optimal results with this combination. For this reason, many people prefer to purchase the Brilliance Box or the Balance Box (better value, and give a combination of products that can all work together). However, because of the nature of my page, it is important to note that the gel capsules are not vegan. Equilibria has informed me that they are working on a vegan formulation– no date is specified yet, but I will keep you all posted! Personally, since I know many will ask, I do not blame otherwise-vegan people for making exceptions for medical/health reasons. Medicine is virtually never cruelty-free. Vaccines are not cruelty-free or vegan. Frankly– the glue in our shoes and chairs is often not vegan… it is impossible to be a perfect vegan. I believe strongly that mental and physical health matters and that we all deserve to be healthy– we cannot be our best selves (for us, our families, the animals) if we are not well. However, people will all have very specific and personal opinions about this, all of which are valid and understandable!
Face Oil: Im absolutely addicted to this stuff. Best face oil I have ever used. Has never made me break out, smells so lovely (citrus notes) without any synthetic fragrance. Only 7 ingredients… no gross stuff. I keep it in my skincare fridge (omg if you don’t have a skincare fridge you need one! I got mine for $40 on Amazon and it makes all my products last longer and feel so refreshing). Has 500mg of CBD, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory, which is why it works so well to make your skin look incredibly refreshed, clear and even-toned without redness!
Bath Products: Bath bombs and salts! So luxurious! You feel like you’re at the spa.
Rollers: I won’t lie, I am least familiar with their rollers. But so many people I’ve spoken with swear by them!
CBD General Q&A (Most Common Questions I Received):
Can I take it while breastfeeding? — There is simply a lack of data here. You should ask your OB. Personally, mine cleared me while breastfeeding but not during pregnancy, when I asked her out of curiosity. But again– ask YOUR doc!
Does it get you high or make you feel drugged? Absolutely not! The .3% thc (totally legal!) is enough to make the products work well, but is way too negligible to make you feel high. Doesn’t make you feel any different…Just makes you a calm/non-irritable/comfortable version of yourself. You don’t notice any change when you take it, you just realize later that you slept easier or more solidly, or kept your cool when faced with screaming children, or didn’t feel as much physical pain as usual… etc. I always say you don’t notice it when you take it; but when you don’t take it, you’re like AHHH that’s why I didn’t sleep as well, etc! Ya know?
Does it taste/smell like weed? None of the products smell like marijuana, but in my opinion the non-flavored drops do have an ever-so-slight taste of it. My mint drops don’t at all!
Will it be detected on a drug test? Its extremely extremely unlikely, but POSSIBLE. I’ve had a ton of readers who have to get drug tested regularly (nurses, for example) write that it never ever shows up on theirs, but thats anecdotal and I’d feel irresponsible saying that there’s NO chance of it being detected.
Can you mix with alcohol? Yes, no issue with that. Many people say they drink less wine since taking the CBD products!
Can men take these products as well? Totally! Equilibria is a woman-owned brand marketed towards women, but tons of men (my husband included, obviously) take them and see great results!
Is it habit-forming? Not at all addictive!
I so hope that this was helpful! I know it can be overwhelming to start something new, but I have spoken with so many people whose lives have improved dramatically, have been able to reduce their pharmaceutical intake, and who are able to finally live with manageable pain and stress levels because of these products. As always, I am an open book and here for you if you have any questions at all. Love to you all!!!
