Today we speak with Dawn Fable, a busy mom whose history with generalized anxiety lead her to incorporate a daily CBD regimen into her life, and later start a project to deliver a range of female-focused CBD projects to women in the same boat. You’ll hear why CBD has become so popular, and the science of how it works to optimize your health, reduce anxiety and soothe pain. Dawn offers some practical advice on being consistent in your daily cycle, and shares how she used CBD to reduce the symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder, before telling us about Press Pause’s aim to provide quality CBD products and educate women on the benefits of CBD. She discusses how she learned that we are all having an internal struggle, and how our vulnerability and openness can empower others, and reveals how ‘pressing pause’ has allowed her to feel present and enjoy the simple things. We look at the issues that Dawn has identified that women disproportionately struggle with and Press Pause’s lifestyle and ritualistic product range that caters towards women. Dawn highlights that each woman is different and CBD products can be a preferred treatment method or a complement to pharmaceuticals, and tells us which of the products in her range she uses herself: the healing balm, tea, the sleep range, and the tincture. Next, she gives listeners some helpful tips on how to vet their CBD products and touches on the government and larger bodies’ involvement in the CBD industry before exploring the government’s regulation of CBD for over 18s only. Dawn predicts that there will be a greater normalization of natural ingredients in the world of health products, and offers a starting point for new users: topicals for tension, bath bombs for self care, and tinctures for the full benefits. We hope you tune in for an inspiring episode today.
