As a woman approaching her 70s, I’m still on-the-go each and every day. Whether it’s working as a consultant or spending time with my beautiful grandchildren, I’m a woman on the move regardless of what pain throws my way. But when I started opting for the TV over playground dates, or board games instead of bike rides, my daughter suggested I try a Hemp brand she’d come to love herself for helping with her sleep.
She recommended a brand called Meridian Life Balance, which is one of the only entirely pain-focused brands on the market geared specifically toward women and older generations. Their products are made for convenient, easy use in the form of topicals like creams and balms, and ingestible capsules and tinctures all infused with hemp and premium natural botanicals. This was one of the only things left out there I hadn’t tried, so I decided to give it a shot. The fact that it was founded by a daughter inspired by her mother’s own knee pain was just the icing on the cake.
Meridian Life Balance is here to show women of all generations that hemp isn’t scary. It’s just a better way to feel better. I was a bit skeptical at first, but my daughter reassured me that hemp doesn't get you high. So, I knew I wouldn't end up feeling loopy, and was left with nothing to worry about... and a lot to be hopeful for.
I started out with Meridian’s Active Botanical Roller Gel and Restoring Capsules. The cooling menthol in the Roller Gel provided immediate relief for the arthritis in my hands and sharp, awful knee pain. After a few weeks of taking the capsules each morning, I noticed inflammation in my knee was nowhere near as crippling as it had been.
