I am an epileptic living in Marin County. I’ve been asked to write a testimony for cosmic view CBD tinctures. However, it’s more fair to call this a thank you letter rather than a testimony. I have what’s called “Nocturnal frontal lobe” epilepsy. Which means most of my seizures happen over night. During the day my hands used to be extremely shaky. It would make work very difficult and truth be told has always been an embarrassment. When you spend your day self monitoring a lot, it takes away from enjoying your actual life tremendously. Anytime I could forget I had epilepsy prior to starting my CBDs, life was good. Those times had been few and far between. It was becoming really challenging to maintain a positive outlook on making progress on my health.
I’m not here to sell you anything. I don’t work for Marin Gardens. The first time I dropped some of the CBDs and felt my hands smooth out I couldn’t help but tear up a bit. It has completely, and I mean COMPLETELY smoothed me out. I don’t have hand spasms anymore, I’m not constantly dropping tools at work. To say that Cosmic View CBD Tinctures helped me get my life back is absolutely fair to say. I take my drops and forget I have epilepsy. That’s something I’ve been searching for my entire life. Thank you Marin Gardens for supplying us with such a great product. It is truly a life changing. - Tony, Marin County
In April of last year, I became one of those persons in dire need when I was diagnosed with advanced Stage 3B endometrial and cervical cancer.The Cosmic View tinctures helped alleviate my symptoms by dramatically reducing my nausea so that I was able to consume food and I began to gain weight. Over the course of several weeks, I was able to substitute CBD/THC tincture for the morphine with no withdrawals. While I don’t know this for certain, I also believe that the cannabis treated my cancer as I opted to not receive further treatment and have not relapsed. I have been on the road to recovery since last year and feel like I was given a new lease on life. The doctors are amazed. I know that Cosmic View products are carefully formulated using the best ingredients available and the quality of their products is evident in how well my body responded to the cannabis. Christine’s academic background, coupled with her compassion for helping people, gave me confidence and strength. She tells it like it is. She made me understand that a will to live is a choice. The comfort that these products gave me, encouraged that will. - Shannon, San Francisco
I am writing bc I have very acute PMDD (increased anxiety, depression, despair and at it worst - three full days of irrational but uncontrollable suicidal thoughts). I’ve had this affliction for years and my doctors are fully aware but research and treatment options are limited...almost non-existent if your body cannot handle prescription birth control.
I decided to heed the advice of Nicole Skibola and try a daily regimen of a ratio tincture to help manage some of the symptoms of PMDD. I relied on the samples so I did two weeks with daily dose of 20:1 followed by two weeks of 1:1 leading up to my moon cycle. The results have been excellent. My overall anxiety and mood are much improved. No despair and no suicidal thoughts this cycle (for me - this is a huge breakthrough!) Cramps, headaches and period related bodily discomforts are much more manageable. And an unexpected side effect: Reduced hormone related break-out on my face. I am so in love with A COSMIC VIEW tincture for PMS and PMDD treatment right now. I will definitely be continuing treating my PMDD with A Cosmic View and monitoring the results over the next six months. - Jessica, Los Angeles
I have been using tinctures for 7 years. I've experienced many strains and ratios. Cosmic view has a very smart and sophisticated way of formulating their tinctures. It's a magical combination of science and instinct. My personal favorite is their 20:1. It creates a sense of well being and spiritual uplifting that is unmatched in the tincture world. - John, East Bay
Love these products! After being diagnosed with R.A I started using the Cosmic View 20:1 CBD tincture. This was very helpful in reducing inflammation. I’ve also added the 3:1 formula for especially painful days and the Deep Down for topical spot treatment. I especially like the organic olive oil base.( tastes great!) and the fact that they use “whole plant” cannabis extract instead of hemp extract. Keep up the good work! - Hilary S.
A friend of mine recently gave me samples of your products and now I'm completely obsessed. I have crippling pain and inflammation in my hands and feet and I have yet to find anything that helps as much as these products do (I've tried a ton!). - Madeleine, Venice
I had ordered from you a bit ago over the holidays and just wanted to THANK YOU for the amazing products. I honestly have not felt this good and well rested since before my breast cancer diagnosis. - Kat, Los Angeles
Cosmic View transformed my relationship to cannabis. It’s full plant medicine is made with the intention you want for healing and the care you want to make already great days exceptionally elevated. - Taliesen, West Marin
As a scientist, I’m naturally skeptical about wellness claims. That’s why I was especially surprised by the results I got with Cosmic View’s Viva La V! It completely calmed the persistent itch that afflicts ladies of a certain age and smoothed the way for intimacy. I love that the ingredients are 100% organic and the fragrant ylang ylang is intoxicating. - Sharon, Marin County
I have used the entire Cosmic View line and am so grateful for the research, science, and care that goes into each product. As someone who has long been interested in experimenting with cannabis for fun and for wellness, I love being able to trust the integrity of the ingredients and descriptions of the products.
The 3:1 tincture is my favorite for a calm body buzz. The skincare products smell so good that using them becomes a ritual. I rub the Deep Down onto my wrist, which hurts from so much phone and keyboard use. I use the Solstice Stick to protect my skin from places where my wetsuit rubs, and I use the Vive la V for lube. All highly recommended. - McKay, West Marin
