sarah-cervantes-185233-unsplash

I often joke that I would bathe in CBD if I could… Well that just became a reality!  For a fun installment to my Legal Hippie site let’s talk bath bombs!  My daughter loves them, I love them, everyone is loving them.  They are the “it” thing in bathing at the moment.  Now to add to this, CBD is HOT! It’s about to take off and is taking off, so what would happen if you combine the two?!!?  An absolute amazing, relaxing and balancing bath in the making.

Now quickly lets discuss the pros of bathing in CBD.  CBD is detoxifying and has rejuvenating benefits.  You see it not only is said to heal your body but it fights free radicals!  Also your skin is the largest organ in your body and the skin even contains CBD receptors.  So bathing in CBD can aid in placing your body into homeostasis which is balance!  CBD-infused baths allow the amazing cannabinoids found in full spectrum CBD’s to overcome the skin barrier and penetrate the skin’s surface where it can soothe, fortify, and moisturize.

CBD and Fertility Help!

alexandra-gorn-331551-unsplash

CBD and fertility help?!!? Yep!  Studies are showing that CBD can indeed help with fertility.  Now when it comes to fertility issues most fingers immediately are pointed at the female but believe it or not it is pretty even in the fertility area. Roughly 35% of fertility issues are within the male, 35% within the female, 20% are within both the make and female partners and the remaining 10% can remain unknown.  Now that we have cleared this up let’s move forward with how CBD might be able to help with fertility.  Let’s dig a little deeper!

Of course let’s start with bringing up that all so wonderful endocannabinoid system!  This endocannabinoid system is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.  Sounds super sciencey but this system is responsible for pretty much YOUR ENTIRE WELL BEING!  The endocannabinoid system can also play a important role in procreation.  The human brain is wired to accept cannabinoids as a signaling mechanism for sex hormone production.  Now to take this further the endocannabinoids can also help men’s… ummm you know…. (throat clear) Ha but it can help cells synthesize endocannabinoids, which in turn help create the right conditions to produce sperm.  This balance is a very necessary key to sperm livelihood so to speak and even sperm mobility.  Now don’t get excited you pot smokers…. on the other hand. THC has been shown to a decrease the number of sperm.  It is all about balance people!  Homeostasis even! Sperm produced without endocannabinoid signaling has low mobility and less probability of fertilization once at the egg.   So CBD looks like it could be a nice little addition to fertility.  Of course as the oil is gaining popularity more and more studies will be completed. But for now… My favorite little oil, CBD, is at the adorable infant stage.

My neurons are making their own marijuana… Guess What? So are yours!!!!

camille-orgel-551599-unsplash

My neurons are making their own marijuana… Guess What? So are yours!!!!  I would like to think that I could brag about my marijuana neurons but fact is your brain is creating this exact same compound.  Matter of fact marijuana can actually help you grow more neurons and in return you become smarter.  HUH…. much unlike the old dumb stoner jokes we have always heard isn’t it? Let me explain!

Marijuana can stimulate growth and even repair your brain cells! The compounds that your neurons are creating are their very own CANNABINOIDS! The cannabinoids are responsible for filtering what is coming and going into your brain.  If you are like me… I need some filtering. THANK YOU MARIJUANA NEURONS aka cannabinoids!  When your brain releases its own cannabinoids it has a very calming effect similar to what smoking marijuana does.  Marijuana in exchange actually mimics your own bodies response.  So in a game of…. Who got you high first, the plant or your brain, your brain is the winner!

Now why did I tell you all this? One reason is that is it awesome, the other is that studies have been shown that CBD or Cannabinoids from the Cannabis plant can treat stress due to neurogenesis.  Neurogenesis (birth of neurons) is the process by which neurons are generated from neural stem cells and progenitor cells. It plays a central role in neural development. Cannabis strains with high levels of CBD are typically known for relieving chronic pain, stress, anxiety, and a number of other conditions.  They have also been shown to reduce the stress of neurogenesis and aids in the production and the increase in neuron production and battle the effects of chronic unpredictable stress.

So there you have it! CBD once again can help your body do what needs to be done.  In this case, Neuron production! Sign me up!

BREAKING NEWS!!!! 77% of Moms are giving their infants Cannabinoids!

liv-bruce-361672

77% of new moms are giving their infants cannabinoids?!?!  YES!  Believe it or not this is the truest and most absurd statement you might read today.  Now let me explain!

Cannabinoids, like those found in marijuana, occur naturally in human breast milk! As of 2017 it was estimated that around 77% of new mothers were choosing to breastfeed. So as breastfeeding begins to become the norm in our society, which it should, the release of cannabinoids are flowing freely to our babies!

The reason that human breast milk contains cannabinoids is due to the fact that our bodies are actually hard-wired to receive it and it vital to infant development.  The human body is a very complex system of proteins known as cannabinoid receptors that are specifically designed to process cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the primary active components of marijuana.  As it turns out and perfectly designed, human breast milk naturally contains many of the same cannabinoids found in marijuana, which are actually EXTREMELY vital for proper human development.  I know, in a round about way, told you this twice but IT IS EXTREMELY VITAL TO DEVELOPMENT.  Ok…. hopefully I have made my point!  The cannabinoid compounds act as neuromodulators that stimulate the suckling process by activating oral-motor musculature, which helps teach children to eat. (similar to adults getting the “munchies”) These nutritive cannabinoids within the milk also play a critical role in protecting cells against disease, boosting immune function, protecting the brain and nervous system, and relieving pain and disease-causing inflammation, among other things.

So for a quick installment to your education on Cannabinoids this Saturday you now can see why mothers everywhere are freely providing cannabinoids to their children.  You also have just one more proof as to why we are meant to consume CBD and how we are all connected to this amazing frequency filled world.

If you want some good ol cannabinoids to support your own well-being but not to fond on the idea of finding a breastfeeding mother to share the gold click the link below to order your very own CBD! HA!

Make Children’s suckers Illegal!

130610-food-dye-health-color-wheel

So this morning as I am drinking my cup of coffee I came across a news report stating that they had just finished a huge drug bust.  Well this “so called” drug bust was CBD laced candy!  GASP… followed by a hand over the mouth and silence.  Yeah… CBD laced! HAHA This is ridiculous.  The sheriff department even went as far to say that parents needed to be vigilant and watch their children to assure they did not consume these candies.  You know I would hate to think my child ingested this type of poison! Well in all honesty I will gladly hand over any CBD laced candy, oil, cream, etc. to my children.  In fact I promote it!  CBD or Cannabinoids are known for many medicinal properties. Below you will see a chart showing how amazing this plant is! Now be mindful that some of thHealth-Effects-of-Marijuana-Reducedese show that the THC is used to treat a particular ailment but we are not speaking of THC but the cannabinoids within the Hemp plant. CBD is non psychotic which means it WILL NOT make you high.  THC on the other hand WILL make you high and is considered illegal in most states today.  Now to back my statement that children’s suckers should be illegal let me explain.  Suckers and many other candies contain artificial food colorings.  Believe it or not a lot of the artificial food colorings that are allowed and cleared by the FDA are illegal in other countries.  The reason is because they are SOOOOOO bad for you.  Citrus Red 2, Red 3, Red 40, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Blue 1, Blue 2 and Green 3, which include some of the most commonly used artificial food colorings have all been identified as being, or being contaminated with, potential cancer-causing chemical! This is according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest. And Blue 1, Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6 are known to trigger reactions in those with allergies.  Artificial food color has been linked to brain tumors, bladder cancer, allergies, cancer of the adrenal glands and kidneys, thyroid disorders and even ADD and ADHD especially in children and more.  Now can anyone explain to me why in the twisted backwards thinking world is it considered safe to feed our children a cocktail of artificial food coloring and not a FREAKING PLANT?

Post traumatic stress help!!! CBD to rescue!!!

nik-shuliahin-251237

Be prepared for this to the become super “sciency” but after all science is how we learn how it all works! Post traumatic Stress disorder can be absolutely debilitating.  It is a debilitating anxiety disorder that occurs after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event.  The most common form of PTSD you will here of is from our veterans.  This is often called shell shocked.  It is much more than “shocked” it is life changing!  Now it is not just our veterans but many people that have suffered abuse including sexual abuse, addictions, witnessing traumatic events, abused children, etc etc etc.   The most common side effects off PTSD are intrusive thoughts recalling the traumatic event, nightmares, flashbacks, efforts to avoid feelings and thoughts that either remind you of the traumatic event or that trigger similar feelings, feeling detached or unable to connect with loved ones, depression, hopelessness, feelings of guilt (from the false belief that you were responsible for the traumatic incident),  irritability or angry outbursts, hypervigilance (being overly aware of possible danger), hypersensitivity, including at least two of the following reactions: trouble sleeping, being angry, having difficulty concentrating, startling easily, having a physical reaction (rapid heart rate or breathing, increase in blood pressure), headache, disrupted sleep and insomnia.  After the entirety of this list you understand the degree of how debilitating and life changing this is.  Now, can CBD help? Yes! Absolutely Yes!!! Let me explain….  CBD is a non psychoactive compound to cannabis.  When ingested CBD oil can help with the following:

Decrease feelings of anxiety
Improve symptoms of depression
Reduce hypervigilance often experienced by PTSD sufferers
Improve sleep quality
Eliminate aggressive reactions
Improve personal interactions
Reduce Flashbacks
Relieve Headaches
Reduce Irritability
Help Relieve Eye Strain From Light Sensitivity
Eliminate Sudden Twitching While Sleeping
Calm Restless Sleeping Habits

Now how is this list and the treatment of PTSD using CBD related?  CBD treats the conditions of the list and the conditions of the list are some if not all associated with these conditions!  CBD has the ability to effect the endocannabinoid system.  The stimulation of the endocannabinoid receptor with CBD is responsible for the treatment of PTSD symptoms! Researchers found that people with PTSD have lower levels of anandamides.  Anandamides act as a messenger molecule and plays a role in pain, depression, appetite, memory, and fertility.

The interesting thing about anandamides is that they are also a naturally endogenous (internally occurring) cannabinoid found in the human brain and nervous system that plays a role in the feeling of an overall well-being.  The word “anandamide” means “the bliss chemical” because it is released while we are feeling great.  CBD increases anandamide levels in the brain! I could go on and on and explain for days how CBD can help PTSD.  But in a short installment to my legal hippie site you should definitely consider CBD over conventional prescriptions medications!

For an alternative natural treatment of PTSD consider trying CBD.  I personally use Legal Hippie CBD for my own personal anxiety disorder.  If you want to try for yourself click the link below.  If you want more anandamides click the link below! If you need morw bliss click the link below!

CBD me and see you in the morning!

kinga-cichewicz-402025

CBD me and see you in the morning is exactly what I said.  Huh…. once again another amazing benefit of CBD oils!  Everyone needs sleep!  If you are like me I can be a totally different person when lacking some sleep.  It’s essential to your well-being. It’s science! Research has shown that after people sleep, they tend to retain information and perform better on memory tasks. Our bodies also require long periods of sleep in order to restore and rejuvenate, to grow muscle, repair tissue, and synthesize hormones.  Sleep can be and is a matter of life and death when it comes down to it!  Now how can taking CBD help you sleep?  Lets dig a bit deeper….

CBD or Cannabinoids has been shown to help insomnia and sleep disorders.  Believe it or not there are an estimated 70 million people who suffer from sleep disorders in the United States.  If you know anyone, you know someone if not yourself that struggles in the sleep department.  CBD might just be the ticket to a good nights sleep.  Now to slightly contradict myself for a little fun it is actually a myth that CBD oil is sedating.  It is actually the opposite!  If you take CBD in modest doses it is alerting just like drinking a cup of coffee!  CBD triggers the same part of your brain that caffeine triggers.  Now of course this sounds contradicting as I said but let me further explain.  CBD has a very positive influence on the central nervous system, including relaxation and mood.  CBD tends to calm anxiety which is many cases will help with the ability to sleep soundly! CBD also has the ability to regulate sleep cycles, helping to decrease activity in the brain and lead you to a restful, relaxed state of mind.

This is great news to the world of insomniacs!  If you are ready to try something new to help in the very essential sleep department consider CBD oil.  I personally use Legal Hippie CBD oil!

CBD Me and Get off this high!

sharon-christina-rorvik-233131

Did I just say CBD me and get off this high? Yes I did!  To explain further,  in my past installments per Legal Hippie I have broken down the Cannabis plant.  This plant contains so many components and treats so many different ailments.  It is an absolutely incredible plant.  Well did you know that CBD is second in comparison to the THC in cannabis.  Incredibly it’s like the plant just gave you a fix to the high.  THC is what makes you high while CBD is what fights the high!  Thank you Cannabis!  This is why certain strains containing THC will make you more disoriented or high than others.  It has everything to do with the THC per CBD ratio.  Just like a chocolate milk for instance.  The more chocolate you have the stronger the chocolate taste is.  On the flip side if it has a lower ratio of chocolate per milk the more it taste like white milk.  Way to cover all the bases my plant friend! HA!  Back to the plant itself…  The reason Cannabinoids or commonly known as CBD fights the high is due in part to the fact that it is an anti psychotic!  CBD is very helpful in fighting anxiety stoned or not stoned!  So the next time someone tries to tell you that Cannabis is good for anxiety remember that CBD is great for anxiety! THC… poor guy, this just isn’t always the case.  THC can actually cause paranoia and intensify anxiety! SO if you live in an area where the full Cannabis line is legal and you partake a tad to much consider reaching for Legal Hippie CBD!  If you are struggling with anxiety or restlessness also consider reaching for your Legal Hippie CBD! Everyone should consider CBD.  It is, simply put, a miraculous plant.

What the What?

indica-vs-sativa-leaves-720x340

Ok most people have heard of Cannabis but may or may not have known that there are 3 different strains? The most common strains you will hear about are the sativas and the indicas.  Most people new to this whole CBD, Cannabis or Oil Boom as they call it will probably have no clue what in the world we are talking about.  So for a very quick installment and to educate you a little bit more, let me explain!

Besides the way the plant looks, the names behind the strains also explain how they affect your body.  The word “cannabis” is used to describe a genus of plant. And within that genus, there are three main species: Cannabis indica, Cannabis sativa, and Cannabis ruderalis. Cannabis ruderalis is commonly known as hemp, and it’s very low in THC.  Hempworx CBD oils actually has their THC levels down to a .03%.  THC, as I have said before, is the product that makes you high.  To explain a little more the Sativa strains are more stimulating, while indicas tend to be more sedating.
The high from sativa strains is energizing and perfect for daytime use if you are into that. A feeling of well-being and ease is often associated with sativas, making them ideal for social situations. They are also said to promote deep conversation and enhance creativity.  While on the other hand Indica strains tend to have an opposite effect. They provide a body high that is well suited for nights when you just want to wind down and leave the stress of the day behind. Indicas are often used to relieve stress and aid with sleep.  Now most places in the United States still have marijuana as an illegal substance.  However, moving in the right direction, CBD oil which is derived from the Hemp plant is legal in all 50 states!  CBD or Hemp oil is a very strong anti-inflammatory!  CBD or hemp oil has a huge range of potential health benefits and uses, including reducing pain, soothing anxiety, fighting cancer, improving mood, eliminating depression, preventing inflammatory arthritis, protecting the immune system, balancing the metabolism, aiding sleep disorders, and healing the skin, among others. I mean there is so much this plant can do!

So there you have it!  This was a very basic run down of the Cannabis strains.  To order your very own very legal Legal Hippie oil click the link below!

CBD is Eliminating Junk Drawers

alex-loup-393847

CBD is Eliminating Junk Drawers!!! This might be the strangest title you have ever read…. but it has FOR REAL helped eliminate junk drawers in my home.  You see a little over a month ago I started taking Legal Hippie CBD oil.  As weeks pass I have found myself cleaning out drawer after drawer.  I am organizing areas I never thought possible! I am getting rid of clutter, becoming simpler and cleaner.  WHAT THE HECK!  My daughter, after about the 25th bag of junk (no exaggeration) said, “MOM, why are you constantly cleaning stuff out?”  I did not have an answer!  Not initially that is until it occurred to me.  I am focused!  I am able to attack a task! What is going on?  It must be the oil!

CBD oil is said to help with ADD and ADHD.  I have struggled my entire life to pay attention.  I would read paragraph after paragraph as a child all the while reminding myself to remember and to pay attention to what I read.  It’s been a struggle. My day dream game is strong! If that is a thing.  HA  So yes, CBD oil is helpful to those whom suffer with attention problems.  Let dig a bit deeper…….  Daily intake of hemp oil can control hyperactivity and impulsivity. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, better known as ADHD, is a controversial diagnosis marked by distractibility, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Adults are more likely to be diagnosed with attention deficit disorder, or ADD, which lacks this hyperactivity characteristic, but is similar in other ways to ADHD. More than one in 10 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, a figure that continues to grow!

There have been many studies to try to determine what exactly is the primary cause of ADD or ADHD symptoms. One main physiological irregularity of ADD/ADHD is the brain’s shortage of dopamine, a chemical neurotransmitter involved in cognitive processes like memory and attention. Common medications like Adderall and Ritalin stimulate dopamine in the brain which promote concentration, but come with so many side effects.  Cannabis on the other hand seems to increase dopamine in the brain WITHOUT all the nasty side effects.  The compounds found in cannabis, called cannabinoids, correct dopamine deficiency observed in ADD/ADHD patients. Even in its raw form, cannabis is able to provide the mental slowdown necessary for concentration in many patients. Boring tasks like cleaning out junk drawers become more manageable, and mood swings tend to level out. Now you can see why I am tackling the junk in my house!  It is the only variable in my life that has changed!

So if you find yourself having way to much junk in your life literally or metaphorically Legal Hippie CBD oil might just be what you need! CBD oil is great for treatment in children too!  If you are ready to clean out those junk drawers….
