How It All Started
About 9 years ago, I started suffering from chronic migraines. They would arrive unannounced, especially during stressful times and I could spend days, sometimes weeks, in bed without the pain going away.
At the time, I was living in France and fresh out of High School. I was going through a very stressful period of my life, my parents were divorcing, we were moving out across the country, I was going to start university away from my friends. My 17 years-old self was overwhelmed! This is around that time that migraines started and never went away! It was ruining my life! I was losing appetite, weight, friends and it was impacting negatively my professional life too!

I tried all types of medicines possible, seen countless doctors, did thousands of tests but opioids were my only relief. Opioids are known to be highly addictive and I didn’t want to take them for the rest of my life! I needed to find a solution quickly! I started to get creative with plant extracts and essential oils to see if they would give me relief. After trials and errors and turning my apartment into a lab, I started seeing change. That’s when I incorporated CBD into my routine that the migraines started to be a lot more manageable.
Late 2018, I decided to leave my full-time job in pursuit of launching a high quality botanical hemp CBD line. Esanssi launched in March 2019 and is a high concentration of CBD oil mixed with our proprietary organic botanical blends. I am now 26, I am not migraine-free but I am not taking opioids anymore. Botanical CBD has been life-changing for me and by creating Esanssi, I want these oils to be life-changing for other people too!
