Meet Rodrigo Madrid, from San Antonio

November WelCel CBD Champion Spotlight

This month we’re shining a light on WelCel Champion Rodrigo Madrid, a small business owner, father to two young daughters, and the Texas Outreach Coordinator for Save the Brave, a nonprofit dedicated to providing military veterans with support systems and tools for stress management.

Hi Rodrigo! Tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m a former Marine; I served a total of five years in the United States Marine Corps Infantry Unit. I loved it, and ended up leaving due to the birth of my beautiful daughter. I now have a second daughter, as well as multiple businesses here in Texas: an insurance agency in San Antonio and another in El Paso. I also operate a fire reconstruction company in San Antonio.

How did CBD oil come into your life?

When I was in the Marines, we did tours in Iraq and I lost a lot of friends, so I’ve dealt with PTSD and anxiety. I always have a lot going on with work and my family with two young kids, so my anxiety level was definitely high. Many people suggested CBD over prescription medication. As the years passed, I tried a couple of different brands but none really had much of an effect on me. I just wasn’t seeing any results. Then one of my partners in the fire reconstruction business, Jorge Rodriguez, told me about WelCel early this year. I was a little skeptical at first but the more I heard about Lisa and Trey’s story, the more attracted I was to WelCel. Then I did try a WelCel sample from Jorge and I felt the effect right away. I’ve used WelCel ever since.

Did CBD oil help with your sleep, stress and anxiety?

Yes, I’ve struggled with stress and sleeping at night for a long time, so those areas were definitely where I felt it the most. All of a sudden, I was getting a few extra hours of sleep and feeling less of the anxiety that comes with the day-to-day operations of owning multiple small businesses. WelCel CBD is especially helpful before giving presentations.

You use CBD for anxiety, before public speaking events?

Yes. It’s made a huge impact on my life.

As a WelCel Champion what are your customers saying about CBD benefits?

I love WelCel and their CBD works well for me, so I knew it would be easy to share and talk about it to people who were curious. I was one of the first Champions to make dedicated Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages and that has helped me get recognized and create movement. I’ve heard nothing but great results from my customers, not a single piece of negative feedback. People tell me WelCel CBD is helping them sleep better, wake up refreshed, and feel less anxious.

Can you tell us a little bit about CBD oil for PTSD?

I’m the Texas Outreach Coordinator for Save the Brave, an amazing organization for military veterans who are struggling with PTSD, depression, and suicide. Veterans return from overseas with great deals of stress and anxiety and often turn to alcohol and drugs to help them cope. It’s my mission to help them find different avenues to resolve these issues. In the case of CBD, you’ve got a natural solution that has the power to save lives.
