Calyx Wellness Centre got me started on my journey with CBD in November, 2016. Upon my first visit, their knowledgable staff guided me through the process of determining what products would be right for me. They have since proven that I am in good hands! I have been taking the 1000mg CBD tincture daily now since November, and have found it to be extremely helpful for so many issues. I began using medical marijuana after sustaining a brain injury and neck and shoulder trauma in 2012.
Marijuana was extremely helpful, particularly in getting and staying off of stronger medication that was supposed to be ‘helping’ me; like pain medication, muscle relaxants, and benzodiazepines. However, I wanted something that would help as much as marijuana did, without having to be "high” all the time. After doing some research, I was led to Calyx, and I have never regretted it! CBD does not have the cognitive side effects that come with weed, and aside from the immediate relief I experience, after using it daily for a period of time I am experiencing consistent, lasting change.
Calyx’s unique and potent tincture has helped with issues related to my mood and chronic anxiety. It helps to calm my tendency to constantly ruminate over worries, and has allowed me the mental space to focus and to be motivated to do things that once felt too large and intimidating due to my anxiety. In relation to my physical issues, I have found that consistent use of Calyx’s CBD tincture has allowed my nervous system to ‘relax’, and I find that I am infinitely more calm in body and mind than before. It promotes body awareness for me, allowing me to be aware of the tension I’m holding in my body, and it has been extremely helpful for my chronic pain related to the brain injury and physical trauma. I have purchased the tincture for both of my parents, and a few of my friends - I can’t say enough about it, or the amazing staff at Calyx who continue to support me in my journey every step of the way. I have tried other CBD products and supplements from dispensaries in Toronto and BC, and none have rivalled the results I have obtained from this one of-a-kind CBD boutique. I will continue being a loyal customer for as long as they are in business - thank you Calyx, for everything!
