CBD for your mermaid… Mermaid hair that is!

hair.jpg

As you might have guessed I am about to tell you CBD or Hemp oil is beneficial to hair growth.  So here goes… CBD IS GREAT FOR HAIR GROWTH!  If you are like me I am struggling with hair growth due to chemicals.  I might have had a few to many color removers and bleaches over the last year or so.  Ok… I, for sure, had to many!  So I have been introducing CBD into my hair routine.  I NEED my healthy hair back.  CBD is helping!  Not only this CBD has been shown to help with people suffering from alopecia also.  Let me explain!

CBD is an excellent sourse of vitamin E. Vitamin E has an amazing softening effect for your hair.  CBD is also a very good natural miosterizer.  When applied to your hair and scalp it boost the health of your scalp and increases circulation which in return decreases hair loss.  Since CBD oil also promotes a better blood flow to your scalp it helps in quicker expansion of the hair follicles.  Hence… reduced hair loss!

CBD is also a great source of omega fatty acids.  The three most prominent ones are the omega-3, omega-6 and the omega-9.  The fatty acids found in Hemp oil or CBD have been shown to improve the quality of the tissue on the scalp.  In return it increases hair growth!

Last but not least it helps in adding the necessary protiens back into your hair.  It fortifides the strands by proliferating the protein within the hair.

This doesn’t just apply to women and that mermaid hair but it also applies to men who are wanting to thicken the hair on their heads or their faces.  YES! IT DOES HELP WITH GROWING THAT PRIZED BEARD!

So if you are in the market for some stellar mermaid hair, manly head of hair, or even a super manly mans beard…..

Let talk FAT BROWNING! Spoiler Alert…. This has nothing to do with the kitchen!

weight

Fat browning… this might not be a term that you are familiar with but it has nothing to do with the kitchen and everything to do with weight loss!  Yes, CBD can aid in weight loss! Let me explain…

A simple way to say it is CBD has the ability to convert white colored fat tissue into brown colored fat tissue.  Once the white colored fat tissue is converted into the brown colored fat tissue you can than burn it instead of storing for energy.  Simple as that!  Another reason CBD can help in weight loss is that it aids in the release of toxins from our bodies.  Many times the lack of weight loss could have everything to do with this!

Now for a nerdy sciency way to explain, CBD has also been shown to stimulate fat genes and proteins that encourage the breakdown and oxidation of fat.  Fat oxidation is the body’s way of breaking down these large molecules into smaller molecules that it can use for energy.  It can also boost the number and the activity level of mitochondria in the body’s cells. This helps the body burn more calories!  Who doesn’t want that as spring break is creeping upon us?  Lastly CBD has been shown to decrease the expression of proteins involved in lipogenesis, which is the generation of fat cells.

So either simply put or super sciency…. let’s burn some fat!

If you want to try some out of the kitchen fat browning for yourself…..

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….

These Hot Flashes Though… CBD to the rescue!

thomas-hafeneth-244903

CBD for menapasue… I swear this stuff will forever amaze me.  Did you know that England’s Queen Victoria herself used to eat hash candies to ease menstrual cramps? Marijuana has been around for FOREVER!  Afterall it is literally a plant.  A PLANT!!!

Back to menopause. It is so funny to me how us women gripe and groan over our periods for years. Literally years!!! I myself have been complaing for some 26 years now.  Wow that is a long time!  Let me just add to this and say that once I no longer have to deal with the ever dreaded period I will continue to gripe and groan over not having one.   With this comes hot flashes, depression and anxiety, fatigue, and sleep problems which can last for months or even years pre- and post-menopause. Ummmmm no thanks! But if I am lucky enough to continue with life this is in my future. So can CBD be beneficial to menopause? Why Yes! Let’s dig a bit deeper.

As we may or may not know CBD has been shown to help with sleep and anxiety.  But Menapause includes more than just this.  It includes increased risk of breast cancer, bone loss, dry skin and hot flashes.  Lucky for you the compounds in CBD actively interact with the sex hormone estrogen, which is a key culprit behind menopause symptoms! This takes us right back to the endocannabinoid system! As I have explained in previous installments on my Legal Hippie site. This system is responsible for placing the body into homeostasis.  Homeostasis is very important to our bodies.  It is the balancing system. For example, it is what is responosble for keeping your body around 98 degrees even if it is 100 outside.  This is important! It is a checks and balance system that is necessairy to survival!  Your body being in Homeostasis is the key to the endocannabinoid system to help regulate things like body temperature, immune function, mood, sleep, pain, appetite and energy metabolism, and finally the Reproductive cycles.  Endocannabinoids are like the body’s own cannabis. Breastmilk even contains cannabinoids!  Just a little tid bit of fun facts for you. Compounds in the cannabis plant (phytocannabinoids) directly interact and engage with the endocannabinoid system. When it comes to women’s reproductive health, endocannabinoids and estrogen are right there in the same race!  When estrogen peaks, so do your levels of endocannabinoids. In fact, prior to menopause, women are most sensitive to psychoactive THC right before ovulation! So if you live where THC is legal… girls be careful when ovulating! HAHA This is when estrogen levels are at there highest.  Estrogen directly engages endocannabinoids. In fact, the enzyme that breaks down certain endocannabinoids (enzyme FAAH) is regulated by estrogen. As estrogen levels begin to drop, endocannabinoid levels change. So the best thing you could do for your menopausal body is to help it balance itself right back out.  I stand behind Legal Hippie CBD oil.  Its a full spectrum oil grown here in KY!

A Keto Diet with a dash of CBD

brooke-lark-229136

A new “trend” in the dieting world is the Keto diet.  The keto diet is one that is based around placing your body into ketosis.  You achieve this by strictly limiting your carb intake and eating healthy fats and proteins with leafy vegetables and berries for example.  Ketosis is when the body begins to burn your own fat for fuel.  When you consume carbs your body uses them for fuel instead of your stored fat and converts them into glucose.  But let me first say, to me, it is not a trend as some would say but a lifestyle change.  Sugar is terrible for the body and even promotes the growth of cancer cells and creates a tidal wave of other health conditions.  Limiting your sugar intake also benefits your body by reducing inflammation.  I stand behind the fact that sugar is an evil to our bodies.  If you need sweets you can get it from all the wonderful fruits that God created.

A second “trend” in holistic health care is CBD oil.  I personally stand behind Hempworx CBD oil.  I use it twice a day by applying 5 drops under the tongue morning and night.  CBD oil is made from strains of cannabis that contain low levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), THC is what makes marijuana psychoactive.  Meaning the THC compound is what makes you high.  CBD oil is high in cannabinoids, a group of phytochemicals found in the cannabis plants. Cannabis has been used all over the world to treat various illnesses and diseases.  CBD is also an amazing anti-inflammatory!  If you didn’t know inflammation is the root cause all pretty much any disease out there!

Now lets combine these 2 “trends” and you have a super cyclone of health benefits! Including a super cyclone of anti-inflammatories!  Wow! The combination of diet and natural pain relief is also transformative.  It’s like peas and carrots! Only you don’t need a lot of either one of those vegetables on the keto diet. HA

Here is a list of a few things that both CBD and a keto diet help!

  1. Epilepsy
  2. Depression and Anxiety
  3. Inflammation
  4. Schizophrenia
  5. PTSD
  6. Alcoholism
  7. Addiction
  8. ADHD and more!!!

From personal experience being in a state of ketosis has given me so much drive during my workouts.  My mind is clearer and my energy levels are actually higher!  It amazes me.  I am currently working on getting my own body back into ketosis.  I have slid out of ketosis more times than I care to remember recently and WOW I can feel it.  I am struggle bus with my body and mind trying to power through the workouts. Both CBD and the Ketogenic Diet help with your bodies inflammation (you will hear this a lot, sorry not sorry) which causes pain and helps with mental clarity by reducing the bodies inflammation and aids in clearing your mind from worries. Who in their right mind would not want this!  SIGN ME UP!

Now that I am mixing the 2…  OH MY GOSH I am feeling extra good!  I mean the 2 together are becoming my saving grace for anxiety, joint pain, sleeplessness, and muscle building during my workout!  CBD AND KETO… YES YES FREAKING YES!!!!  Let me add to this and say Hemp oil is a powerhouse of nutrition when it comes to healthy fats. And it is better than flaxseed oil, which in itself is a reputed source of omega – 3. Hempseed oil is more than 40 % oils , and 80 % of these are essential fatty acids ( EFA ). Can I say healthy fats!!!  Yes I can!
