Winged- CBD Formulated for Women
Founded in 2017 by Jessica Mulligan, Winged CBD was developed and formulated to help other women find their inner peace and and enjoy the day again.
With all that life throws at us, it is no wonder why anxiety and depression diagnoses are on the rise. Barnes and Noble, the large box bookstore, reported a 25% increase in sales for books about anxiety in 2017 alone! Social media has also shown to have a dramatic effect of mood and the ever so popular term, FOMO.
I am a mother, entrepreneur, wife, friend, sister, daughter and traveler. I try hard to dedicate time to each of these things and people but at the end of the day, I can be overworked, stressed, lacking in sleep and all around anxious about how to make it all happen again… and did I sign up for snacks at soccer? The societal pressure for women to be everything to everyone is coupled with the promotion of self-care but when are we supposed to fit it in? So now we find ourselves stressed about not stressing.
Winged has arrived!
Winged CBD supplements were sent to me for testing right before a mother/daughter trip with my mom. In the days leading up to leaving for the trip everything seemed to go wrong. One son put a pencil eraser into his ear and needed it removed, I had to put the final touches on some planning for a conference I am hosting 2 weeks after I return, the washer from one of our rental units failed and flooded our other rental property below it causing 17 thousand dollars of damage and mitigation. Add all this into the mix of my normal routine and commitments and let’s just say, it was a stressful time.
While making dinner after work and after hours on the phone with our renter’s insurance company, I took a full dropper of the Balance Oil because I could feel my body going into a fight or flight response to the stress and pressure.
I love the smell and taste of peppermint and I was very excited to see how it would work with CBD and cannabinoids because I normally use my peppermint essential oil when need quick pick me up.
After one dropper (approximately 1ml) of the Balance Oil and about 15 minutes later, I found my stress response was calmed. I was able to think about the issues that had caused me stress during the week and think through ways to handle them before my trip. I was very pleased with the feeling of serenity the Balance Oil created.
Balance Oil is created with CBD from full spectrum hemp extract, Evening Primrose oil and peppermint oil. It is a clean tasting supplement. If you aren’t a dropper kind of gal, the Balance comes in soft gels as well. This would be beneficial for traveling and the restriction on liquids.
Relaxation CBD Gummies
Wow. This supplement! I have been thinking about the way to describe how the Relaxation CBD Gummies have helped me and I keep coming back to “weighted blanket”.
The calmness created by the Relaxation CBD Gummies wasn’t one where I felt high, tired or out of control. It really was like someone had just wrapped me in a weighted blanket and gave me a cup of my favorite tea. My nerves were calm, I was present in the moment and I was able to laugh off the absurdities of the week.
Lately, have development a very bad habit of indulging in wine when I get extremely overwhelmed and need to quiet my mind. This is a practice that I am working hard to change because I would rather be savoring a glass of wine with a friend or over an amazing meal than use it to calm me.
Thus, I was excited to incorporate the Relaxation CBD Gummies from Winged into my stress management regiment. I have found them to be extremely effective and I only need to take ½ gummy to get the desired effect.
Sleepy CBD Gummies
Third in the Winged CBD gummies line up is the Sleepy CBD Gummies. After talking with many of my friends, I have come to find out that I am not alone when it comes to not sleeping through the night. I often wake anywhere between 2 & 3 am and can’t fall back asleep until about 4:30. Then I sleep very hard for the next hour until my alarm goes off. All in all, I feel as if I haven’t slept more than an hour.
With the trip in mind, and the 9-hour difference in time zones, I announced to the house that I was going to conquer jet lag before it conquered me! And sure enough, I am writing this review on day 5 of 10 and have acclimated to the time zone in Italy perfectly. The Sleepy CBD Gummies from Winged were especially helpful on the plane to get me into a quiet and comfortable sleep in less than comfortable seats.
I have used CBD oil before to aid in a restful night’s sleep and always came out of it with a cloudy head and an almost hungover like feel. I haven’t had any of those issues with the Winged Sleepy CBD Gummies. In fact, my mother, who is notorious for not sleeping well, has been taking them with me. She feels and sees a remarkable difference in her mood because she is sleeping and dreaming! True REM sleep.
I must agree with my mother’s comments on positive mood changes with the Sleepy CBD Gummies. I also feel more in control of my emotions and have more patience for the little things that would normally send me into a tizzy. For instance, people scrapping their bowls with spoons while eating ice cream or yogurt used to make the hairs on my back stand right up. Now, I can stand to be in the same room with them.
I do not feel as if I need to take them every night to get my needed hours of sleep. I have used them to train my body to know what sleep is and why it is important to my mental and physical health.
The taste of the Winged Supplements is not as organic and I was expecting. The peppermint of the Winged Balance Oil is lovely and the gummies have a gentle flavor. It did take me a little bit to get used to the granulated like sugar that coats the gummies but that is the least of my concerns now.
Winged CBD is available on their website. Supplements range in price from $29.95 to $99.95 and in this working mom’s opinion, are worth every penny.
