This will be my first year harvesting yarrow -- I've grown it, but have just recently gotten into learning about all the herbal/flower benefits to use medicinally. I've used them in my soaps, etc., but I let someone else harvest, dry, etc. and then I bought them. I have plenty and it's in bloom and the leaves are fragrant…

That stuff is magic. 🙌 What CBD products do you use and how long did it take for a noticeable effect? I ask because I have…
Traveler's Diarrhea - any suggestions?
