CBD and your tolerance… Reverse tolerance that is! CBD vs. Your Morning Coffee

coffe

I have been asked time and time again if CBD is addicting.  Hemp or marijuana have received a bad name over the years but truth be told it is NOT addicting.  Now with this being said you can in fact build a tolerance to the compound THC.  This means that the more you use it the more you will need in order to achieve the same affect.  Similar to your morning cup of coffee.  If you are like me I no longer drink just one.  I graze that coffee pot like a snack.  A cup here, a little warming fill up and than another. HA  CBD on the other hand is the opposite.  Hence the term, REVERSE TOLERANCE.  In fact you could start of needing 20 drops twice a day of CBD but as your system begins to be placed back into homeostasis you will actually need less!  CBD, which is naturally found in Hemp or Marijuana is also the compound that fights the high that occurs with the THC.  CBD is actually sobering!  So for a short installment to my Legal Hippie site this freezing cold Sunday afternoon you can now rest assured that you can take your CBD without concern!  It is indeed safer than your morning cup of joe you little coffee addicts.

If you would like to try a little reverse tolerance in your life….

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!

Cannabis and Alzheimer’s

lotte-meijer-142578

If you know anyone in life you will at some point hear the medical diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.  My own personal family has been riddled with this diagnosis.  It is so incredibly hard to see someone you once knew change and have no idea who you are. Alzheimer’s is a disease that is a irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks.  Things like normal daily task such as brushing your teeth become unfamiliar.  In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear in their mid-60s.

At current times, in the state of Kentucky, THC is still considered illegal.  When it becomes legal, THC in Marijuana can be very useful in helping and even controlling the progression of this disease.  THC is shown to begin to remove the plague buildup in the brain.  Beta amyloid is a toxic protein that builds up in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients, forming what is called plaque.  Scientist believe that the plaque contributes to the debilitating symptoms of Alzheimer’s.  Now until THC is legalized, where we reside, CBD can be helpful also! You see Cannabinoids reduce in the inflammation in the cells.  It is a very powerful anti-inflammatory.  When beta amyloid accumulates in neurons, the brain has an inflammatory response. This inflammation contributes to the disease’s progression and remains the main cause of Alzheimer’s-related damage. The study published in Nature: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease, also showed that cannabis is known for treating many types of inflammation including the inflammation in the brain and aids in preventing nerve cell death.

AMAZINGLY there was a team from Neuroscience Research Australia that indeed published the first evidence suggesting that CBD can actually reverse some of the cognitive impairments caused by the Alzheimer’s disease, and this may be due to CBD’s ability in promoting the growth of new brain cells, or neurogenesis. In case you didn’t know Neurogenesis is the process by which new nerve cells are generated .  This is huge in the Cannabis and science world! Heck it’s huge in my world!

So if you know someone that you love that is showing early signs Hempworx CBD is a full spectrum oil that can be extremely beneficial.  It contains over 120 different strains of cannabinoids.  Not only will it or can it aid in slowing the progression of this terrible disease it can also treat some of the symptoms.  Lack of appetite, depression and aggression for instance can all be treated with CBD.

CBD HELP!!!! 2018 NO SMOKING ON THE WAY!!!!

steven-pahel-336432

It’s January 7 so if your New Years Resolution was to stop smoking and you are beginning to struggle CBD might just be what you need!!! You should stop smoking cigarettes and start smoking pot.  NO!!!! Totally kidding, you should not smoke pot but instead use CBD oil otherwise known as cannabinoil.  CBD is a substance found in Hemp that gives you all the wonderful medicinal help. A recent study came out showing that CBD cannabis oil can be an efficient aid in quitting smoking. The researchers at the University College London have published an article in the “Addictive Behaviors” journal which found that the non-psychoactive chemical in cannabis (by its scientific name “cannabidoil”, also known as CBD oil), could reduce the number of cigarettes consumed by smokers who wanted to quit. CBD has an impact of the memory portion of the brain.  You know the part that lights up when you might see someone else smoking.  That all to familiar twinge begins to come back and the craving seem almost unbearable.  One of the reasons why it can help you out is that it is a neuro-protectant that protects and repairs the brain from the damage that drug addiction may cause. In fact, it can help reduce neuro-degeneration by almost up to 48.8% and protect it from further damage.  So for a short Sunday evening installment of the pros of CBD you should consider adding it to you routine for health and to help aid in fighting addictions, including nicotine.

CBD Love From the Heart… High Blood Pressure Help!

nasa-90395

High Blood Pressure is something I hear of often.  One in Three adults today have high blood pressure. Time and Time again my family complains of high blood pressure.  It almost seems to be an epidemic the older I get.  I hear it over and over and over.  This is definitely something that should not be taken lightly.  Over time high blood pressure can cause many health issues including aneurysms, damaged and narrowed arteries, damage to kidneys, heart disease, heart failure, stroke, dementia, eye damage, sexual dysfunction, etc etc etc.  I mean the list is virtually endless.  There are a number of factors, including poor diet, stress, physical inactivity, alcohol, and tobacco use which increase the risk of developing hypertension.   So can CBD help with high blood pressure.  Once again…. Science says Yes!  If you haven’t noticed there are a lot of YES’ attached to this oil.

Here is how……..  According to the abstract from the, “Journal of Clinical Investigation”  Preclinical studies show CBD has numerous cardiovascular benefits, including a reduced blood pressure (BP) response to stress.  After testing male adults data showed that a single dose of CBD reduces resting blood pressure and the blood pressure response to stress, particularly cold stress, and especially in the post-test periods. This may reflect the anxiolytic and analgesic effects of CBD, as well as any potential direct cardiovascular effects.  Evidence also suggest that CBD oil may be beneficial in dealing with some of the cardiovascular ailments such as hypertension. The studies show how CBD is a vasodilator which means it allows a healthy flow of blood in the vessels to normalize blood pressure.  (Anti-Inflammatory) CBD provides neuroprotective effects that protect the heart against any cardiovascular conditions and even stroke. The studies have also shown how CBD can create normal heart rhythm after an ischemic attack and an improved heart performance immediately after a heart attack.  INFLAMMATION… once again is a huge cause.  ALSO STRESS!!!! Time and Time again stress and inflammation continue to be the root of a lot of  ailments in our bodies.

Consider treating your blood pressure with CBD oil.  Its a natural way of treating and regulating your body!!!  To order your FULL SPECTRUM CBD oil click the link below!

Flu Season….. Pass me the CBD!

vladislav-muslakov-261627

Its that time of year again!  Now that the holidays are passed us, its time to pass the sickness.  Ugh….. So of course I begin to wonder if my Legal Hippie CBD oil can help fight the common cold and flu.  What did I find?!?! Ummmmmm without a doubt YES!  It can help to fight the symptoms associated with the cold and flu and be an aid to your immune system.

Ever wondered why you get stuffy noses, sore throats, and achy bodies?  It is because of the inflammation in your body.  What the cold and flu does is place your immune system into hyper drive while it is trying to combat the illness.  An unwanted response to this hyper drive immune system is inflammation.  The inflammation can get so bad with fighting the cold and flu that you in turn get even sicker!  This is why you can end up with things like pneumonia after the initial virus.  Over abundance of inflammation to your body can cause heart, organ, intestinal and lung issues.  Cannabidiol (CBD), may offer control of the immune system and in turn provide protection from viral infections. Cannabis has already been recognized to inhibit fungus and bacteria and can be considered a new class of antimicrobial!

So is CBD a flu and cold cure? No, just consider it a little jump to your immune system while it helps to alleviate the pain and a sleeplessness associated with the flu the  amazing anti-inflammatory properties of CBD will continue to help you and your immune system so you can get better faster!!!

Conspiracy Theorist Unite… I guess I am becoming one

cristian-newman-364529.jpg

The picture you see above is an accurate interpretation of how I feel trying to share the benefits of Cannabis. I have been reading and reading and studying and studying in preparation for the newest oil boom! CDB oil that is.  I have been reading countless articles, following Dr. after Dr. that supports and even promotes the benefits of the Cannabis plant, trial and error on myself and then began treating my own ailments with Legal HippieCBD.  I am feeling like SCREAMING OFF THE ROOFTOPS in order to help others by sharing this oil!  Now with all the support and people jumping on this band wagon with me there are those that argue it!  Those that don’t support it! Those that simply just do not believe! Well what if I told you that the US Government owns the patent on Cannabis and it’s cures. YES THAT IS A TRUE STATEMENT!!!  Now why would The Feds invest in a product so much that they actually purchase the patent if it didn’t work?  That’s because it does work and they know it!

The KY Box

aaron-blanco-tejedor-270469

 

There are times that living in Owensboro, Kentucky literally pain me.   I mean it is a wonderful place to raise your kids.  It’s the bible belt.  Churches are prevalent, crimes are minimal, everyone knows everyone.  Wait… EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE.  This might just be the problem.  Everyone is scared of standing out and moving forward.  Stuck seems to be the proper word if I try to put a word to it.  There is a stigma attached to anything outside of the figurative small box.

Now, insert myself.  I am a mother of four, I am a stay at home mom, I am a member at Legacy Owensboro, more than that I am the pastors daughter in law.  YES, I said it! I am someone people know at church and I LOVE God!  Let’s add to this… I sell CBD.  GASP!!!! I do what???  Yes, I have decided to promote and furthermore sell and own the company Legal Hippie, CBD.  I do this because I believe in it.  I believe in the plants that God made.  Why would I try anything a man made before trying a plant.  It’s a plant!

Plants are amazing, they are food, fuel, medications and more!  One that I very strongly believe in is CBD or cannabidiol is the main active compound in hemp, and unlike THC, it is not psychoactive, so it doesn’t make people high.  Inside the human body there’s the endocannabinoid system, with receptors spread throughout the brain and body.  At Legal Hippie,  our CBD products utilize the full spectrum Cannabis plant mixed with either Hemp Seed oil or Tigers nut oil. Not all hemp is created equal.  Legal Hippie CBD Oil is made from NON-GMO, PESTICIDE FREE, CO2 Extracted Hemp Oil. Its organic, Gluten Free, it’s safe and LEGAL.

A full spectrum plant gives the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) the full cannabinoid profile of CBD, CBG, CBC, CBN, in order to substantiate the health claims. We have over 120 cannabinoids in our CBD formulas which perfectly inhibits the CB2 receptors in the body. Other competitors claim to have a 99% purity which is usually in the form of “Isolate” or an “Extract”. Although the purity level is higher, the body is only receiving CBD, not the full cannabinoid profile. CBD Isolate is cheaper to manufacture, and when the CBD is isolated, those products lose its effectiveness. Legal Hippie has great products.  Products that will and can change people’s lives in positive ways!

So I will continue to learn more and more about this amazing plant and I will continue to be outside of this box.  I will be bigger than the box.  Heck I could toss that box if I wanted! Freethinking and learning how to help people is exactly what I strive to do.

ALSO, Support your KY Farms.  Legal Hippie is grown right here on KY land!!!

Anxiety and CBD, My Personal Story

26813_1248553489381_6721086_n

Anxiety is real.  It’s real to me and real to over 40 million adults in the United States.  This number does not include the number of children and teens that are affected by any anxiety or depressive disorders!

I have struggled off and on my entire life with anxiety.  I can recall laying in bed as a child frantic because I could not sleep.  Frantic because I could see the time clicking forward and my mind was still awake.  Frantic because I knew I would be tired the next day.  Frantic because I knew I had to go to school the next day.  Frantic about….. EVERYTHING at times.  Fast forward to being an adult and mother of 4.  My mind still plays these games.  My mind is just filling in the blanks of what I am frantic about with other options.  For example, I might be frantic about a sick child, frantic about checking the mailbox, frantic about the clutter that overtakes my home transferring to the feelings of clutter in my mind.  I can’t focus, I can’t breathe deeply, the nervous vibrations in my body is clear and becoming over whelming.  Its Anxiety!!!

Very recently these feelings began to creep back in.  I even told my husband I might call my Doctor and get back on my meds.  I need my clonazepam again. (Terrible I Know)  I didn’t know if I could continue without numbing and stopping the vibrations so to speak.  BUT I told myself to wait.  Just wait for my Legal Hippie CBD oil to be ready.  I needed to wait and try this first!  I stocked my dealer like a child wanting on Santa! AKA my hemp farmers. All of a sudden I get a knock at the door nearly 8 p.m. and it is it!!! My oil arrived.  I immediately opened my 1000mg bottle of peppermint flavored oil and gave myself 5 drops under my tongue.  I continued this for a few days twice a day and still continue today.  You want to know what happened?!?! I found myself NOT REMEMBERING TO CALL MY DOCTOR.  That’s because my anxiety was going down.  The vibrations in my body now becoming bearable if not gone at times.  I find myself just sitting and recalling how I felt weeks ago and now nothing!  I am calm, I can dismiss feelings and thoughts easier, I can be a better mother, I can be a better wife, I can breathe……

If you are ready to try something new, ready to drop the pills from big pharma, ready to feel better “let me be your dealer”

A Little Christmas Spirit

A little Christmas spirit laced with the warm fuzzy feeling filling the entirety of my chest is exactly what I ordered.  Life is life… it’s filled with the never ending movement of motion that rules the time. The hustle of kids, jobs, chores around the house and visits to the local stores for milk which end in a line halfway across the threshold of the fortress of gifts can put a toll on even the jolliest.

A little Christmas spirit laced with the warm fuzzies
LEGAL HIPPIE CBD OIL

The holiday season, yet as joyful as it is, can be a drain on just about anyone.  Tonight as I sit and reflect on my day I decide to have a nice warm cup of Peppermint Mocha Hot chocolate.  This cup is like no other… as I sit and sip slowly, my mind becomes at ease and the shallow breathes my day has been riddled by becomes deep, relaxed, and fulfilling.  My super annoying husband is becoming a little less annoying even as I sit here while he directs exactly how I should “write my own blogs”.   Lol You want to know why? The reason is, this cup of hot chocolate is getting it’s peppermint flavor from my Legal Hippie CBD with Peppermint Oil.  I opted for the 1000mg… trust me when I say I needed all the help this world has to offer when it comes to relaxing and bringing my mind to ease.  Don’t over think it!  This is not some fancy recipe.  Simply buy whatever brand you desire, make as the packet says, add a few extra marshmallows or candy canes if you would like and follow up with 4 to 5 drops of CBD oil.  EASY PEASY and get ready to feel your breaths become deeper, your worries fade to a regulated speed and an over all relaxing feeling take place.  You can thank me later!
