A Healthier Alternative to CBD

A Healthier Alternative to CBD

The Science of Copaiba I found copaiba when I began my journey in sobriety. I needed some help with the chronic inflammation I developed because of asthma, smoking, and drug use. I wasn’t allowed to smoke pot any more because it made me high. But, it was the only “natural thing” I knew existed. I had no idea that what I found would actually work or that it has been around for centuries and is more natural than any cannabis-derived effect on the market.

A Good Night’s Sleep

A Good Night’s Sleep

For most of my life, I had trouble sleeping. I was prescribed different prescription drugs such as Xanax and Ambien to help me calm down and fall asleep. Most nights, I would add in a night cap of some beer or liquor, and maybe a hit of weed too. I complemented all of this with a mindless TV show like “family guy,” until I had slowly drifted into oblivion. I had a difficult time taking the edge off enough to get a good night’s rest. Today, I’m happy to say that this is no longer the case for me. I...
