What Our Customers are Saying.
I had the opportunity to participate in a study for KyKana's CBD oil. When asked to try it, I agreed because I had been looking for a natural pain relief and while some oils I had tried helped they were not as effective as I had hoped. After a few days of placing the oil under my tongue each morning I noticed that my hands no longer hurt and that my grip in both hands had become stronger! I had been dropping things daily but that all changed! But that wasn't the only improvement in myself I noticed. Being the president of the Olive Hill Area Chamber of Commerce and dealing with my son's medical issues had caused great stress in my life along with anxiety and depression (Covid-19 worries sure hadn't helped matters either). I had been experiencing chest pains and felt like I wasn't able to take a good breath. All that changed with the help of KyKana CBD oil. I was calm, no longer experiencing chest pains, breathing had become normal, and life felt happier. The oil had been the only change I had made so I am convinced IT WORKS (and I am a huge skeptic)! I am honored to be the first customer to purchase this amazing oil from this new local company. Thank you KyKana for improving my quality of life!

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1998 and told, "Whatever you've ever wanted to do, do it now!" Thankfully, I was also told by a wise home health nurse to never stop fighting. In essence, I've tried about every disease-modifying MS drug on the market and my body rejected them. What actually WORKED for me, was healthy eating, pure essential oils, natural remedies, and now... Kykana CBD oil. Athough MS gave me a left side deficit of strength and coordination and vision issues, I felt blessed NOT to have experienced neuropathy (nerve pain) like many others... until 2019. At first, I thought I'd been stung by a bee! Others followed on the top of my feet, at my ankles, and then my shins. Randomly, I'd jump from the sudden pain as it increased in intensity to throbbing. I tried the essential oils CBD at 500 mg, which helped. BUT... when I started the Kykana 1200 mg CBD, I found total relief!!! Not only does it work quickly, it's a LOCAL BUSINESS I can support!! Here's the amazing bonus that I will FOREVER be thankful... In October, 2020, my 32 yr-old daughter spent 6 days in a hospital from a Covid-induced blood clot in her lung. She couldn't take her normal medications because of blood thinners she must take for at least 6 months. Her migraines and back pain, those caused by a pre-existing condition, returned with fury. On her recent visit for Christmas, I started her on the Kykana CBD. It brought INSTANT relief!! She bought the 2100 mg to take back to CA!! Thank you Kykana for using the plants God created to provide relief, health, and... quality of living for me, my daughter, and others. <3 I'm still on my feet! And I'm pain free
