CBD Success Stories

We created this company to offer tools to help support your health and, without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today.  Our passion for creating high quality CBD products is fed by the stories and feedback we’ve received from our customers over the years.  We’ve witnessed life-changing stories about decreased epileptic episodes and improvements with pet separation anxiety.  Many have reported quick pain relief from our Full Spectrum CBD salve and long lasting migraine reduction from our CBD Isolate, among a variety of other ailments supported by our pure CBD and full spectrum CBD tinctures and vape juice.  We are always listening and love supporting our clients with all the information needed to feel comfortable using any of our products.  
We can talk to you all day about our products and how they may be beneficial to your wellbeing, but we would rather let you read these success stories for yourself.
On CBD Isolate, Full Spectrum CBD Salve, & Full Spectrum Lip & Body Balm for Sleep, Inflammation, & Sore Muscles:

“I recently discovered this company and I am so glad I did! I’ve had previous experience using some high CBD cannabis, but I always wanted to try the isolated form without any psychoactive effects. My main reasons for using CBD are to help with sleep issues and also decrease inflammation in my muscles and joints from following a pretty demanding exercise routine.
I tried their CBD Isolate both in the “slab” form and pure powdered crystal form, as well as the Full Spectrum Salve (this stuff is amazing!) and their Full Spectrum CBD Lip & Body Balm.
Both the “slab” form and powdered CBD isolate have completely resolved my sleep issues. They both provide a very nice calming effect that relaxes all the muscles and mind. There are some scientific studies that suggest CBD helps lengthen deep sleep and I definitely notice a huge difference in my sleep lately. It’s been years since I’ve slept well consistently, and I am incredibly grateful to have finally found something that works without the negative side effects that come with prescription sleep medications. Even when I take breaks some nights, I am still sleeping well. Just an FYI, the “slab” form of the CBD isolate is best used if you plan on vaporizing and inhaling. I would make sure you have a milligram scale so you can accurately measure out an appropriate amount, because you don’t need to use a lot! The most efficient way for the body to absorb CBD is through vaporization. The second best way to take CBD is via sublingual administration (under the tongue). I used the CBD isolate powder to make my own tincture by mixing it with some MCT oil.
The Lip & Body Balm and the Fully Spectrum Salve are both very well made topical products. I have been doing a lot of long distance running this summer. When I get sore muscles and knees after my long runs I spread them around my knees and on my calf and thigh muscles. I noticed that there was a definite decrease in muscle and knee soreness after using these and I felt stronger when I was running after using them because of the quicker recovery time. My training peaked at a few 18 mile runs, which really takes its toll on the body and these products helped immensely. The Full Spectrum Salve has a more creamy texture that spreads on easily, while the Lip & Body Balm is a little thicker in an easy to carry stick form, that’s great for taking with you when you’re on the go. They both have pleasant, but not overpowering calendula smell.
Overall, Fully Activated has the best prices around without sacrificing quality. Everything is well packaged and their balms and salves have excellent natural ingredients. If you’ve never tried their products or our new to CBD, definitely give them a try!” – J.D. (Google Reviews)

On Full Spectrum CBD Tincture & Full Spectrum Salve for Chronic Pain and Trigeminal Neuralgia:
“I purchased the starter kit I believe Monday night, and it arrived Saturday morning. Keep in mind I’m 1,700 miles away give or take, so that was great in itself. Before it arrived, I was chatting with the page to learn more, and they are so informative and helpful. I purchased upon recommendation from someone my husband knows to help with my Trigeminal Neuralgia. I just used the Full Spectrum Tincture for the first time, so I will have to update once I see results. I have very high hopes for this! If you’re in the market for some great hemp product, definitely try Fully Activated because I’ve had such an excellent experience so far. I’ll put some photos in the comments of the starter kit because it’s so nice to look at, too.
Update 9/30/2017: So it’s several hours later on the day I received the products and I already have seen differences! I also have migraines (yep, I can’t just have one crappy thing in my face lol) and I rub the salve on the area that hurts and within minutes it’s back to normal!!! I also haven’t had a true flare up of my Trigeminal Neuralgia since I used the tincture either. I have TN 1 and 2, with mainly tension in my jaw area. I use the salve on that as well and it’s relieving so much tension and the burning pain!!!! My life is already changing because of these products. If you don’t know what TN is, it’s a neuropathic disorder of the fifth cranial nerve. It causes excruciating shocking and stabbing facial pain sometimes when touched, other times just randomly. This has effected every area of my life, and I was recently ruled out for a corrective surgery. The pharmaceuticals aren’t working. But this is! I’m finally finding some relief from this pain!!! I can’t recommend these products enough and it’s only day one.
Update 10/02/2017: The salve has definitely been a lifesaver when I feel oncoming pain because for me it stops it dead in its tracks. I’ll be honest, every once in a while I just go “holy crap…I don’t hurt.” It’s so so strange because I’ve had chronic head pain for as long as I can remember, and adding the TN starting back in May. My grandma also has generalized chronic pain and used salve on one shoulder yesterday and was extremely impressed and will likely be getting her own soon. I’ve been using the full spectrum tincture more and it seems to be preventing flare ups a lot. It’s like the tincture and salve are working as a team for me. The tincture tries to prevent everything, and then the salve is there just in case I feel a flare up starting. Really, this stuff is INCREDIBLE. I am beyond impressed.”-M.G.  (Facebook Reviews)

CBD & Your Pet’s Health

One of our biggest reasons for creating high quality CBD products is for our pets.  Fully Activated has a long family history of fostering dogs and cats and rehabilitating animals with CBD, and we want to share our experience with you. 

The first major source of inspiration for launching Fully Activated was our founder Nick’s dog, Buca. Buca was an intelligent full-blooded pitbull and a great companion.  She was placed on a regular regiment of CBD her entire life and Nick believes this was key to her health.  As she grew older, Buca naturally slowed down, but she never got sick and always maintained a fervor for life.  She eventually died of old age, and this was the kick Nick needed to completely launch Fully Activated. Our CBD pet line, Buca’s Biscuits, was named in her honor.  
Nick and his wife Courtney have since adopted and fostered several dogs, all of which are offered a CBD-rich diet.  One of their dogs, Tigger, unfortunately suffers from tumors. Nick and Courtney administer a daily regiment for Tigger and their other animals to help with immune support and symptom mitigation.
If you’re looking for a regimen for your animal, we’ve provided a list of dosages, supplements, vitamins & minerals that may be beneficial to your pet’s healing. This pet health regimen is based on Nick and Courtney’s experience, and you should always consult a veterinarian before altering your pet’s diet or administering supplements.
Full Spectrum CBD
Full Spectrum CBD twice a day. Nick and Courtney typically go by the rule of 1mg per pound with their pets.  
Benadryl
1mg per pound, split into two daily doses.  It can help with allergic reactions and skin reactions and is an anti-histamine which can help calm the inflammatory reaction of the body.
Turkey Tail Mushrooms
Turkey Tail mushrooms have been shown to offer favorable results with women suffering from chemo treatments for breast cancer.
Milk Thistle
A well-known liver tonic & powerful antioxidant that can help support the body’s purification system for humans and pets alike.  It helps with liver and kidney damage, and also helps repair organ damage.
Fish Oil
Incorporating fish oil can offer big benefits for your pet.  Fish Oil offers omega-6, omega-3, and polyunsaturated fats.  Omega-6’s decrease inflammation, cell growth, and blood clotting.  Omega-3’s balance Omega-6’s and can be an anti-inflammatory agent especially with regard to allergies & arthritis.  The 3’s and fats can improve skin, coat, and joint health and improve cognitive function.
Dog Probiotics
Not the same as human probiotics!  Dogs and humans have different types of gut bacteria, and while some of them are the same, our furry friends have a number of strains that we don’t have.  We both share Lactobacillus & Bifidobacterium, but two additional healthy gut bacteria to support in your dog are Bacillus coagulans & Enterococcus faecium.  A healthy gut helps support better digestion and a healthier immune system!
Golden Paste (Turmeric & Coconut oil)
Turmeric is one of the most potent natural anti-inflammatories and a great antioxidant.  The coconut oil offers healthy fats for the body.  The paste can be given in food or applied topically to troublesome areas.
Glucosamine / Chondroitin Complex 
These two supplements make up the building blocks for cartilage in the body.  They have been regularly used for arthritis support and to encourage further cartilage production.
CoQ10 – Coenzyme Q10
It has been shown to improve symptoms related to congestive heart failure, support nervous system dysfunction, and may help with energy production.
 
We recommend talking to your vet before making any changes to your pet’s health regiment. When you think about your health or your pet’s health, think about supporting the major systems of the body like circulatory, nervous, and digestive. If you have any questions, please contact us directly.

who we are

 Heres a little about who we are and why sharing plant medicine knowledge is so important to us. Big thanks to all who take a few minutes to read our little blog, hopefully you’ll take something away from it!
We’ll start with who we are:
After years of misdiagnoses and being over prescribed pharmaceuticals for phantom conditions, Nick decided to take control of his own health. Combining a gluten free diet with little to no processed sugars, replacing pharmaceuticals with plant medicine and regular physical activity, Nick was able to redirect his health and regain his quality of life.
With an engineering background it only made sense that he would start production of his own products to ensure quality, purity and cleanliness for his family, friends and himself. Shortly after Fully Activated began, Courtney, a long time friend from a similar industry joined Nick in Colorado to lend her skills and knowledge to the cause and the company. It didn’t take long before both Nick and Courtney realized they had found a true calling, not only in life, also in love.
 Now, we are a husband and wife team that together have almost 30 years experience in the marijuana industry ranging from cultivation to genetic development. We’ve merged our ideas of plant medicine and a preventative lifestyle to offer products that can be utilized daily by anyone in need, anywhere.
