      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.

      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.

      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!
