Her research led her to cannabidiol, a naturally occurring compound found in the hemp plant (yes, it's totally legal in all 50 states...no it doesn't get you high).
CBD oil is quickly gaining recognition in the United States for its tremendous health properties. Cheryl has not only witnessed it's power to heal first-hand in her own health, but has had countless customers share their success stories of having fast relief from neck pain, back pain, muscle soreness, anxiety, insomnia and migraines with regular use. It's like nature's best kept health secret!
I'm not pushing a product, I'm sharing a solution! - Cheryl Cryer
CBD helped Cheryl regain a level of health and vitality that she is compelled to share with everyone from her roller derby students to neighbors to former corporate colleagues. When you've personally experienced the power of pain relief, it's easy to want to share it with others.
But not all CBD oil is created equal. So, while it has been a miracle worker for many of Cheryl's customers, she attributes this to her high quality standards. In her own health journey, Cheryl quickly discovered that the purity and potency of CBD is essential in getting desirable results and few CBD sources meet these standards.
Luckily, after years of grueling research, she found a farm that was third-party certified by the US Hemp Authority, of which only 12 companies are. This means there is soil testing for heavy metals and pesticides to keep it out of the final product as well as high standards for purity, potency and consistency in the processing of the substance. All of this ensures that the CBD doesn't contain anything harmful and that it is pure enough and strong enough to do what it's supposed to do.
This is the farm where Cheryl sourced her own CBD during her recovery process and it is now where she sources the oil for all of her own CBD products, produced right in her own studio. And it just so happens that the farm VP grew up in St. Charles...so it all comes back full circle!
What Are The Benefits of CBD?
Many people have reported a wide range of health benefits from CBD products, such as pain relief, memory improvement, reduced inflammation and even cancer healing. Cheryl has celebrated with her customers when they share their positive improvements with lowered anxiety, have become free from migraines, neck and back pain, and even started sleeping well again.

Cheryl's CBD business has taken off in Fox Valley, loved by both local wellness retailers and everyday people living with pain.
