      Tackle winter dryness with these Hemp Lotions

      It's getting colder each day, and winter can wreak havoc on your skin - making it dry, itchy and irritated. Dry skin occurs when our skin doesn't retain sufficient moisture — perhaps, because of frequent bathing or use of harsh soaps. Wintertime poses a special problem because humidity is low both outdoors and indoors, and the water content of the epidermis  tends to reflect the level of humidity around it. Dryness during winter results in problems like wrinkles, winter xerosis, eczema and so on.

      Keeping the skin hydrated is especially important during winter as it keeps the skin smooth and supple. Moisturizing is one important skin care routine to combat the winter dryness.

      CBD and mysticism – What we can learn from Anandamayi Ma

      When one chooses to begin their journey on the spiritual path, they are presented with a number of instances that wake them up to the qualities within themselves that they haven’t been aware of. We all have experienced this type of awakening at some point in our lives and as we embark on the journey of infusing light to even the darkest parts of us, we begin to look for guidance – we seek others who have been through the journey, whether it’s our friends, gurus or plant medicine.

      One wise and radiant woman who has helped many along their spiritual journey is Anandamayi Ma. She was an Indian saint who lived until 1982. She has been described as "the most perfect flower the Indian soil has produced” by Sivananda Saraswati. Her teachings are fluid and feminine because they do not adhere to “one right path” or “one way of being”. She always stated that “everyone is right from their own standpoint”. "How can one impose limitations on the infinite by declaring this is the only path—and, why should there be so many different religions and sects? Because through every one of them He gives Himself to Himself, so that each person may advance according to his inborn nature." She says as she describes the nature of her beliefs. She advocated for the spiritual progress of women by demolishing discrimination and introducing the sacred thread ceremony that was previously available only to men to women.  

      She was observed to be persistently and naturally in a state of divine bliss. Her nature was endearing, magnetic and intriguing to many. Even when her mother fell dangerously ill, she was seen to be detached and in a state of neutrality. If one chooses Anandamayi Ma to look up to on their journey here on earth, it opens up the mind to the possibility that one can live in a state of impermeable joy. But in this fast-paced world and life, although many of us may be enraptured by her teachings, it becomes very hard to stay aware and in a positive mindset all the time. We can only draw inspiration from such amazing women and teachers and try to stay true to our path. Although it may be difficult, it is not impossible. With our modern-day problems comes tools that are designed to help you on your spiritual journey and one such tool is Cannasbis. CBD specifically can help transport you to a more aware, and open to the messages from your soul and intuition. As Anadamayi Ma also says, the best teacher you can encounter is your own inner nature. Self-realization is god-realization, she says.

      If you’re on the spiritual path and are feeling stuck or frustrated in your journey, or if you simply are inspired by Anandamayi Ma, or you just want to advance on your journey, take a little help from CBD to get you in the state of mind to absorb and integrate the magic this world has to offer. If you are a woman who’s reading this, now is the best time to start because it’s Women’s Month at our store and we are giving you 10% off with the code WMN10. Godspeed on your journey! May you encounter the magnificence of your own soul.

      Understanding CBG and CBN: the lesser known heroes of Hemp

      Understanding CBG and CBN: the lesser known heroes of Hemp

      If you’re here, that means you’re on the path of exploring the benefits of Cannabis or you’re already convinced and sure of the benefits. Either way, we’re here to tell you that the Cannabis industry is a fast-growing market due to the fact that it comes with innumerable benefits and many that are just being uncovered. As we all know, the most popular component of Hemp that has gained the most popularity is CBD. CBD, without a doubt, has some profound effects on wellness and energy levels. However, Hemp consists of more than hundred such compounds that come with their own benefits and the two we are highlighting are CBN and CBG.

      Compounds like CBN and CBG can be found in full-spectrum hemp oil which comes with a plethora of benefits due to the presence of compounds such as terpenes, fatty acids along with other compounds like CBD, CBN and CBG. We know that our bodies are innately compatible with Cannabis because our body contains receptors in the Endocannabinoid System that bind naturally with CBD. The Endocannabinoid System is present in the body to regulate various functions like sleep, mood, appetite, inflammation and pain. Among the molecules that bind with CBD when introduced into the body is CBG and CBN.

      What is CBG?

      CBG, short for Cannabigerol makes up 3% of the Cannabis plant. It is the precursor to CBD, CBC and THC. It is known as the stem cell because it breaks into these compounds. The older the plant, the more the chances are that it will break into these compounds. CBG, much like CBD does not get you ‘high’ but it is one of the compounds that balance out the high of THC, giving you a more palatable feeling. However, it does present its own set of health benefits that include: 

      • Potential treatment of glaucoma
      • Anti-inflammatory benefits
      • Combating neurodegenerative disorders, 
      • Potential anti-cancer and anti-bacterial treatment

      A clearer understanding of CBG is still being sought as it is one of the harder compounds to obtain

      CBD products

      What is CBN?

      While CBG is a pre-cursor to CBD, CBN is the successor to THC. CBN only exists in mature plants because it is the result of an ageing process that turns THCA into a new molecular compound. In short, continuous exposure to light and oxygen eventually turns THC into CBN. This compound also comes with its own set of benefits that scientists are slowly unraveling. Some of them include: 

      • Protection of the nervous system
      • The capability to heal and grow bones
      • Pain relief
      • Anti-inflammatory properties
      • May treat epilepsy 

      When these compounds are taken along with the others such as CBD, an entourage effect is produced. This delivers health benefits that are greater than the sum of its parts as they interact with each other to give you a wider range of benefits.

      Does Hemp Help Enhance Joint Health? Let’s find out!

      Does Hemp Help Enhance Joint Health? Let’s find out!

      There’s an old adage that goes “youth is a gift of nature but old age is a work of art”. How healthy you will be in your old age has a lot to do with the practices and habits we indulge in when we’re younger. Although the aging process is gradual, we don’t feel like we’re ever getting older when we’re in our 20s and 30s. However, these phases have a hige impact on our health as we age. We feel invincible when we’re younger, which could be the reason for some neglect on the health front. 

      When it comes to health in old age, joints are an important indicator of it. They are incredibly important when it comes to mobility. The cartilage that surrounds the bone is what tends to degenerate as we age and is the key component of mobility. It is responsible for reducing friction between the bones and also produces synovial fluid as we get older. Synovial fluid helps keep the joints lubricated and the functioning smoothly. If your joints do deteriorate, you may feel stiffness, pain and/or swelling.

      What is essentially happening here is inflammation.  And this is where CBD comes in. CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid System – the part of the body that is responsible for maintaining general homeostasis and other general functions such as appetite, sleep, and physical pain. CBD interacts with this very system to support joint health, in every stage of life. CBD works with two receptors – CBD1 and CBD2 while supporting joint health. CBD2 receptors are specifically responsible for supporting the inflammatory response associated with joint issues. The scientific studies are still ongoing but there’s plenty of anecdotal evidence to support the claims that it helps with healing join health as well as reducing pain caused by unhealthy joints – temporary or more permanent conditions like arthritis.

      Joint care is relevant no matter your age. Healthy eating, exercise, and hydration go a long way in keeping your joints healthy. A Mediterranean diet is best to keep your joints healthy and reducing the habit of smoking is also essential. In order to increase joint healthy significantly is to consume full-spectrum hemp oil or apply it topically regularly. The hemp plant consists of more than 110 cannabinoids and 120 terpenes that are being studied and increasingly being discovered to have a plethora of incredible effects which include anti-inflammatory properties and pain reduction.

       From children dealing with issues to adults dealing with neurodegenerative diseases, there are always people looking for alternatives. Physical therapy is aimed at recovery through physical modalities such as exercises, stretching, cold/hot massage etc. The goal here is to help the body heal itself.
