13 Reasons WHY I am using CBD and joined the pyramid based company, aka MLM, aka direct sales – Green Compass Global. Clearly I am direct about the company’s setup because lets be honest, that is what everyone is thinking and that is the way that it is set up…and I am totally okay with that and 110% on board!
CBD chills you out. I have a 3 & 5 year old, dog and husband that constantly need “mommy” or a “snack”. I am running in around with my head cut off most days and CBD helps to bring my mommy crazy down to an acceptable level.
It promotes post workout recovery. Word on the streets- CBD apparently might have some anti-inflammatory properties, so it can help your post workout recovery stiffness. Besides my daily sublingual oil I take, I use the Relieve muscle cream and transdermal patches (for any specific injured areas that need extra love) sold by Green Compass.
You will get a glowing complexion. CBD cream benefits your skin, hence the reason for so many new CBD beauty products. Due to it’s anti-inflammatory properties, it can help with conditions like psoriasis, eczema and atopic dermatitis. Also, it can help clean up acne by reducing oil production and calming irritation of the pimples.
It can aid with anxiety disorders and other neurological disorders. I have been using antidepressants/anxiety medication for a little over three years: postpartum depression, anxiety, OCD and PTSD. A poster child for a Psychology 101 class, ha! Just when I think I am ready to ween off, BOOM, life throws me another curveball. Because I have moved SIX times in the last three years – ooh and had a child, my hormones are whack! I don’t know if what the doctor is prescribing me is helping or making me feel worse. Since I have introduced CBD into my daily vitamin routine I have been progressively dropping my dosage. I am down to my last 3 bottles of 20mg pills. On top of the implementing CBD into my health routine, I have changed diet, exercise routine and seeking counseling. So there a a few different pieces of my puzzle that is continuously being worked on. It wouldn’t be fair to credit only one thing.
Bring on the Zzzzzz’s. I can’t ever shut my mind off – hence anxiety. So the doctors put me on sleep meds. I didn’t like the way they made me feel. I was having crazy side effects and wanted to ditch them. So the doctor gave me Xanax (insert palm to forehead)! I have been taking Xanax for years and the dosage just kept increasing as my tolerance built up. I was up to 1.25mg and nothing. Insert CBD for an alternative medication. I take a dosage in the morning and right before bed and have been sleeping like a baby. I started out the 500mg product, but will soon be bumping up to the 1000mg after my current bottle runs out. I also have a CBD Bedtime Cocktail I am going to try and will post soon!
I am buying from myself instead of a state approved dispensary.When I began my CBD journey in October 2018, I was buying from a state approved dispensary here in Tampa, FL. When I started to educate myself on the products, extraction process and testing procedures, I quickly learned that I wasn’t feeding my body the best. All you have to do is compare the labels and you can tell, Green Compass offered a better product, so the change was easy. I will buy better product for my body, jump on this CBD industry boom and see where it might take me. I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. I saw many friends quit their FT jobs to work their “side hustle” FT and that was appealing. I never made the jump on any of the other companies because 1) I would have started too late in their game and 2) I was selling product(s) in an already saturated industry. For me, CBD was a brand new product in a brand new industry!
No alarm clock. Besides being on the school schedule, I love being able to roll out of bed and throw on my SAHM clothes AKA black yoga pants, tank & a messy mom bun. The amount of anxiety that has been lifted from my body not having to think about getting cleaned up, dressed up and fight all the 9-5ers rushing to clock in every morning is worth having people “make fun of me” “talk about me behind my back” for joining a MLM company.
No boss. Who doesn’t aspire to be their own boss? If you don’t raise your hand, you lying!
No awful, terrible commute! Gawd I have driving and traffic. Some people love it. They drink their coffee, talk on the phone, listen to their podcast and cruise right into work. Me on the other hand; I am ready to fight someone and wreck my car into the trees. I HATE traffic: stop-go, stop-go!
Unlimited income potential. Now while I also had this opportunity in the insurance sales world, after 10 years of trying to sling health insurance to companies, I lost. I saw other people making cheddar and banking, but I couldn’t do it. Hindsight, I wish I made different career choices within the industry and companies I had the opportunity to work with, but can’t make changes now. I am laser focused on the CBD industry and the opportunity to build my HEMPire!
Time freedom. Unless I can find a company that will let me work remote (I am definitely working on it), I am investing the time that I have into this blog and Green Compass. Becoming a mom has changed my career path and opportunities that I am able to take – and most days I am okay with that because I have an awesome husband who is able to allow me to invest in this opportunity to see where it can take me…our family. I want to be able to make the kid’s soccer games, dance recitals, miss a 1/2 day to take them to the doctor’s and not get shit because I have “missed too much already” or “don’t have PTO”. With the way technology has boomed over the last decade, there is no reason employees must feel strapped to their desk. If that is the ship you wanna run, great. It just isn’t a fit for me and my family needs at the moment.
Work from home aka anywhere! See answer 11, this is very similar. Technology has provided us the opportunity to still stay connected, perform our jobs and keep the world running. Why does it have to be in a cubicle or office without a view?
Why NOT? Green Compass is a MLM, Pay it Forward company, and I am using that mindset with this new journey. When you find something good and have received value out of it, would you not share it with those you cared for family & friends? Strangers? I would and I am! I am honest and transparent about the benefits CBD is providing me and my family and how it might be able to make a difference in yours. To date – I have ZERO people selling under me, made about $185 and I am okay with that. I am taking the time to educate myself and followers on this new industry and gaining their trust. It is my hope that when people were ready to incorporate CBD into their life, they will think of me, The CannaBoss Mom!
