My Story by Josh Tuuk


My name is Josh Tuuk, and I suffer with mild to severe anxiety and depression.

I was diagnosed shortly after I was involved in a car crash that took the life of my good friend. It felt like I had a ton of bricks laying on my chest, like I couldn't breathe, my heart pounding out of my chest, and tears streaming down my face as people ask me what's wrong and I can't give them an answer.

Then I came along a video on youtube by one of my favorite guys, Mathias710wrx.  He was reviewing a product called Herbstrong, an extra strength CBD concentrate, and I said to myself, I'll give it a shot.

Fast forward to Sunday April 30th 2018, nearing my lost friends birthday. My day quickly spiraled downwards as I was in fear of losing my job and losing my girlfriend. I knew I was having an anxiety attack but this was on a whole other level, the worst attack I have ever experienced. I went looking for CBD at local head shops and all were closed. I started to panic and hyperventilate when I remembered the Herbstrong concentrate in my glove compartment with only one dab left in it.

With tears rushing down my face, I took the last dab and instantly the pressure on my chest was relieved and I could breathe again, tears swelled in my eyes but not tears of sadness, tears of joy because with one dab I felt normal again.  My pain was gone, and being 100% honest without Herbstrong I most likely would have taken my life that night.

Herbstrong saved my life. So everyone of those people at Herbstrong is a hero to me and I am beyond grateful to them for making a product that can do so much good for someone even in the darkest moments of life. Herbstrong is a light in a dark tunnel you can't get out of. So as an active customer I ask you, if you suffer with anxiety or depression or both,  please try Herbstrong, it could save your life just like it did mine.
