Kayla's Introduction to CBD
Kayla had been struggling with adenomyosis as well as uterine cysts and fibroids for several years. After trying alternative treatments and medical procedures she had given in and scheduled a hysterectomy. Her son, Keegan Fioravanti, was adamant that she try CBD oil to help with her pain. Being in the natural industry for over 22 years, Kayla was a little hesitant – thinking she had already seen every natural remedy under the sun. Within three days her symptoms stopped along with reducing the chronic pain she has lived with from Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome. It has been 3 years since taking her first drop of CBD oil, and she still has not had that hysterectomy and has been able to stop all of her prescription and over-the-counter medications.
CBD had completely changed her life, and she knew she needed to spread the word about its astounding benefits. When she entered the CBD industry, she saw a desperate need for quality, all-natural, transparent formulas. Kayla is able to do this in Ology Essentials by combining her love for natural remedies like aromatherapy, herbal medicine and now CBD with expert knowledge as an organic/natural cosmetic formulator.
Kayla has written two books on the topic of CBD and cannabis – A Little Handbook about Topical CBD: A Revolutionary Ingredient for the Skincare World AND A Little Handbook about Addiction: And the Future of Recovery that could Include Cannabis.
