How Can You Use CBD to Improve Your Fibromyalgia and Other Health Problems?

Hey there, it’s Amy here from Sunshine Functional Medicine. I am so excited about writing this blog today!

One of my favorite things to do is to make others feel good… it gives me all those warm fuzzies inside!


One way I help many of my clients is by educating them on CBD and helping them choose a CBD product that is going to work for their needs and desired effects!

Have you ever tried CBD?

Unless you live under a rock… and I hope that you don’t...

it’s literally everywhere… you can purchase CBD anywhere!

I’m surprised it’s not yet offered at Mcdonald's!

Ok, really I’m kidding about McDonald's...

But really it’s everywhere from the gas station to the video store, your local CBD store, hemp pharmacies, CVS, online and the list goes on and on!

Does anyone still use the video store? I suppose that’s another conversation!

Okay but seriously CBD is everywhere and if you haven’t tried it yet or if you’ve tried it and haven’t had amazing results this blog is for you!

First, let’s answer the really big question that I get asked all the time...

What is CBD?

CBD is a cannabinoid that is found in the cannabis plant...

There are 2 types of cannabis plants … the Hemp plant and the Marijuana plant.

There are many different cannabinoids found in each of these plants and many of them have health benefits!

One you may have heard of is THC.

THC is a cannabinoid that is responsible for the high that you experience when you smoke or ingest it.

CBD and THC are 2 of the most prevalent chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant.

The Hemp plant is high in CBD and low in THC and conversely, the Marijuana plant is low in CBD and high in THC.

With the passing of the farm bill in 2018, production to it is now legal in all 50 states to grow and harvest Hemp as well as extract CBD and produce product.

So now that you know what CBD is let’s move onto my 2nd most popular CBD question...

How does CBD work in the body?

First, let’s introduce the ECS... the endocannabinoid system!!

In the 1990s it was discovered that all our bodies have an ECS that interacts with all the systems in our body – immune, nervous, digestive, cardiovascular, etc.

All these systems have CB1 and CB2 receptors that bind with cannabinoids like CBD and help bring those cells back into balance – when you bring the cells in balance the system moves towards homeostasis and brings that system back into balance.

So, CBD is like a missing puzzle piece for these receptor sites!! The missing piece to bring the body back to homeostasis!!

And in case you forgot your high school lessons... Homeostasis is a healthy state that is maintained by the constant adjustment of biochemical and physiological pathways.

Ok.. now let’s talk about why you’re really here...

What are the health benefits of CBD?

The list is long!

CBD is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsant, anti-depressant, antipsychotic, anti-anxiety type of medication… except that it is all-natural!

CBD has been shown to treat

  • Sleep Disorders & Insomnia

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Pain

  • Skin conditions including Eczema

  • Arthritis

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Psoriasis

  • Hot flashes

  • Mood swings

  • Smoking cessation

  • Restless legs

  • and the list goes on and on

If your doctor or practitioner is not aware of the ECS or how it works I encourage you to find a practitioner who appreciates holistic medicine and who has been educated on the ECS.

Practitioners like myself can truly guide you on your journey to wellness using CBD and other approaches to influence your overall health! I offer a program called the CBD Protocol and I host this every other month. Click Here to learn more about my CBD Protocol Program.

When it comes to your health I highly recommend exploring all the various treatment options and working with someone willing to meet you where you're at and help guide you to the best treatment for you.

In my CBD protocol, I will teach you

  • The right product for you so that you know what’s going to be best for you and the condition that you are treating

  • The right dosage so that you’re getting right at the sweet spot which is amazing results without wasting your money by taking too much!

  • The right delivery method depending on your goal for treatment with CBD you have many options… finding the right delivery method can make the difference between a product working and a product not working

  • The right way to use CBD… You want to be sure that CBD is not going to interfere with your medications... That you're taking it at the right time… and again the right dose with the right delivery option

  • The right way to pick a CBD product and Company… the CBD industry is unregulated currently.

The biggest issue with buying CBD is knowing your source – if you don’t know where your CBD is sourced then you shouldn’t buy it!

The CBD protocol is one of the many tools that I utilize in my Fibromyalgia Relief Formula where I help women achieve amazing improvements in their fibromyalgia symptoms and help to identify the root cause of the fibromyalgia…

So even if you don’t have fibromyalgia I can help you!

So are you ready to get started and try CBD?

Let’s see what a fellow nurse Missy has to say:

“I started using CBD products in February of 2019. If you had asked me before that if I thought I needed CBD, I would have told you no – I was fine – I was existing.

Every morning I was reaching for coffee to start my day (because I had a terrible night’s sleep) and almost every afternoon, I was reaching for Ibuprofen to help manage tension in my neck and head.

But I truly saw nothing wrong with that – it was just how I was.

And then CBD came into my life!!

And everything changed – I began sleeping fully through the night (in fact I no longer need caffeinated coffee in the mornings) and no more daily ibuprofen!!”

What an amazing testimonial!

More Information Please

I also have been an avid user of CBD.

I started using CBD in April of last year.

I had been doing a lot of research on CBD and was trying to decide if this was something that I wanted to offer my clients in my programs…

As with everything I teach in the Fibromyalgia Relief Formula…

I wanted to see for myself that CBD works… and I wanted to find the best product… one that was organic and ethically sourced…

And I found a product called Green Compass.

I’ve used Green Compass Products Since April and I’ve referred all my clients to Green Compass to purchase their products….

And I’ve got some really amazing news…

I’ve now partnered with Green Compass to offer their products exclusively to my clients.

All of my clients will receive $10 off their first purchase when they use my link

When I first started using the products I started with both the Cinnamon Tincture and the nano gummies…

I really wasn’t sure what to expect or how it was going to work for me…

I was in remission and not having many fibromyalgia symptoms at the time…

Within 72 hours not only could I tell a big difference… so could my family!

  • My anxiety was better

  • My mood was upbeat

  • I had more energy

  • I felt motivated

  • I was able to focus better

  • No morning stiffness!


That’s when I knew that I had to educate my clients on the benefits of CBD.

That’s how I developed my CBD protocol.

So now it’s time for you to get the missing link of the Endocannabinoid System!
