      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.

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.

      Using CBD to aid menstrual cramps

      Using CBD to aid menstrual cramps

      It’s that time of the month again and this time it’s no joke. You’re moving from fetal position on one side to fetal position on the other and the pain just doesn’t seem to subside. Ladies, being on your period, especially when it’s heavy and painful is truly something commendable. But some days, it does get too much for some of us and that’s when we resort to pharmaceuticals to mitigate or take away the pain. Although it does work almost immediately, it’s not a healthy mechanism to fall back on. What if, instead, you had a natural alternative that does what a pain killer would do without the harmful long-term side effects? This is where CBD comes in.

      CBD or Cannabidiol is one of a hundred compounds that are extracted from the Cannabis Sativa plant. CBD binds to the Endocannabinoid receptors in your body. The Endocannabinoid system is responsible for many functions such as appetite, inflammation, pain and sleep. When it comes to menstruation, the hypothesis is that CBD helps alleviate the pain and inflammation that is caused when the uterus contracts to expel the lining. 

      There are no official studies that link menstrual cramps and CBD directly; however, there are plenty that show that CBD plays a key role in reducing inflammation and managing pain. There is also anecdotal evidence that points to the reduction of the severity in symptoms after 3 months of consistent CBD use.

      If you want to start with CBD for menstrual pain, the rule is to start off at lower doses until you find the sweet spot, the dosage that works for you. Some women who have tried it, reported a reduction in pain as well as a decrease in other symptoms such as headaches and emotional turmoil. Simona, a 24-year old model from north London recalls her experience with CBD: "During my periods I would have really bad headaches and, like everyone else, I was using pain relief. But that would barely scratch the surface. I often couldn't go to school or university or work because of the pain. I would have to leave in the middle of the day and it really affected my quality of life. I'd be crying from the pain. I couldn't stand up or breathe normally. It was horrible. I felt angry a lot of the time, probably because I was so frustrated with my circumstances." 

      The bottom line is that different things work for different people. If you’re looking for natural ways to aid your period cramps, CBD is definitely worth a try. We’ve even got a product from Sisters Of The Valley concocted especially for women who want to alleviate period pain. Check it out or consult our Doctors to receive a recommendation!

      Hemp and Heart Health – the undeniable correlation

      When we discuss heart health, we can sometimes find ourselves thinking – it’s not for us, it’s for the older folk. Although this may be partly true, the reality is that habits from our early thirties start impacting our heart health, either positively or negatively. Today, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women all over the world. Although this may be quite sombre to hear, it is the unpleasant truth of our generation. With the growing popularity of a fast life fuelled by fast food, we can’t help with stop and revaluate the path we’re headed on. 

      While allopathic and naturopathic medicine might be a quick fix, it’s something to turn to when there’s no other option. If you’re looking for ways to maintain heart health – because it runs in your family or just because you want to live consciously, hemp products are an amazing and effective alternative to turn to. The below points are based on conversations with Dr. Joel Kahn, a preventative cardiologist and Clinical Professor of Medicine at Wayne State University, and here’s what we learnt.

      Cannabinoids and blood pressure are closely related

      High blood pressure is the number one indicator and risk factor for hypertensive heart disease. Blood pressure, as we all know (and can feel), rises under stress. This is where CBD products and hemp oil come in. Hemp and CBD work on decreasing blood pressure in your daily life or during stressful situations. 

      Hemp may play a role in decreasing damage to the cardiac muscles

      The inner linings of the heart’s chambers can swell up and this can turn into a serious condition. The healing powers of hemp have shown great potential in reducing this type of swelling. The National Institutes for health in USA, classify CBD as “a phytocannabinoid with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antineoplastic and chemopreventive” properties.
