The CBD Diaries - Our Story
It’s Caroline and Georgina here, we are two cousins and together we want to bring the wonderful world of CBD to you and help you make the right choice.
We aim to be your go-to hub - providing answers to your questions. If we don't know, we'll go to accredited, responsible sources to find out. We aim to share positive vibes, myth-bust, truth-seek and we hope to become your information-sharing CBD Cousins.
We have been working hard, chatting to experts, researching and honing in on the wonderful world of CBD. The CBD industry is booming, there are so many products out there, but not all follow the advisory guidelines and a high percentage of the market are not even genuine.
For a really good introduction into CBD check out The Essential Guide To CBD - The CBD Book by Author and CBD Journalist Mary Biles.
Last year, BC (that’s before covid) I went through a traumatic break up with my long-term partner. I was in a huge amount of pain – emotionally and physically. I believe that a lot of bodily pain is the manifestation of trapped emotions. Since then, having uprooted my entire life, I am continuing my journey to holistic wellness by maintaining a positive mindset and investigating different methods to improve my physical and mental wellbeing. A true investigation into mind, body and soul.
I have amazing support from my friends and family and I am now back to feeling more me. I can play tennis again, walk my dog for miles – only a few months ago, this would have been an impossible dream! My body is still recovering from months of trauma, but I am on the road to recovery.
Here are some great reads and links to some amazing people who have inspired us both - Enjoy!
I don't suffer severe anxiety, but like many people, I do find dealing with my own ups and downs, especially during PMS, a struggle. Not to mention the monthly migraine that comes with this, often encouraged by a light hangover when it’s a weekend... life choices.
Maintaining a regular mood does not come naturally to me. I often find that I need a lot of space to explode my energy. During lockdown I have mastered new ways to exercise. Here are some of my favourite free online classes and the latest Wim Hof book - a real motivator.
This year more than ever, I grasped the importance of listening to your own body and getting to know what works for you. We are all different and there is no set recipe.
Having worked in the food industry, I am a strong believer in ‘you are what you eat’. If you are eating well, exercising regularly and staying healthy, then ultimately you will feel better. However that is easier said than done. It is good to stay realistic and sometimes you just need that big blow out - whatever that might be.
