That’s right CBD Fights Multi-Drug Resistant Bacteria! Incredible isn’t it? I can read and study and read and study and continue to be amazed at what something as simple as a cannabinoid from a plant can do. The amazing part of this is that as we continue to be able to utilize the Cannabis species we will continue to be able to study and learn more and more about this little power house plant and all the amazing benefits that it can offer. Now back to the previous statement, CBD is showing promising hope that it can also help fight many different drug resistant bacterias. Let’s dig a bit deeper!
We at Legal Hippie love the science around this plant and are incredibly thankful that we are not the only ones. Researchers have now discovered that cannabinoids (including CBD) have a very unusual ability to destroy bacteria (especially drug-resistant strains). Of course as with the onset of all the ability to use our God given plant again researchers are needing to do a bit more research and need to study this deeper. Back in 2011 there was a study that found that CBD can even slow the progression of tuberculosis in rats. This is absolutely amazing but there is science behind this! Legal Hippie science ignite! The reason CBD seemed to have this ability is due in part to the ability of CBD to inhibit T-cell proliferation rather than having an antibacterial property. Immune function is helped by two kinds of white blood cells. The “B cells” (so-called because they develop in bone marrow) produce antibodies. The “T cells” (so-called because they develop in a small organ called the thymus gland) are responsible for a variety of other immune responses. T cells are extremely sensitive to TCR binding while protecting against the inappropriate activation of potentially dangerous effector cells. In a legal hippie what the what statement, CBD seems to have a way for destroying bad bacteria and is also a weapon against the antibiotic resistant superbugs that we are all becoming to fear today.
Since I am Legal Hippied up my anxiety is under control and this is not an extreme fear of mine but knowledge is power. I might as well treat my anxiety all while fighting those little superbug bacterias. HA!

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!

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!

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 these 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?

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!

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.

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!!! 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….

Ok to take a break from the health benefits of CBD lets looks at the vanity behind using CBD. Totally kidding… kind of. HA I mean CBD is in fact a wonderful Anti Aging product but it still has everything to do with health. Let’s dig a bit deeper!
You see CBD is what you would call a immune modulator. An immune modulator is a component that either increases or decreases the effectiveness of your immune functions and cells. There are many reasons why this process is used, and there are many benefits to using immune modulation instead of antibiotics or other drugs. In dealing with CBD oils as a modulator it is a powerful anti aging supplement that promotes well being to your entire body. Meaning THE ENTIRE BODY!!! Including and not exclusive to your largest organ called your skin! To explain even further Modulation means having an aggressive immune system, available for pathogens and foreign cells to be destroyed (i.e. cancer) but also turning off and not hyper-reacting to commonly occurring foods, allergies, environmental organisms and chemicals. Immune modulation is a balance between removing toxins and not over reacting. So the less toxins your body has the better your skin will be! Anti aging is not just skin though. Anti aging includes brain health, bone and joint health, and much more. Yes we all want to be beautiful forever but I’ll be happy to exchange some wrinkles for some time or a lot of time with grandkids one day! I’ll be that grandma! But back to vanity it still helps in the reduction of wrinkles! And to dig even further let me explain…
CBD is a major component of the hemp oil. This herbal extract is loaded with several other nutrients. Of them, vitamin C and E are the ones which play a major role in skin care. Both of these vitamins are strong anti-oxidants, that protect the organ internally from harmful effects of free radicals, as well as externally from the sunlight. UV rays and free radical damage accelerate the aging process, and so, when protected from these factors, the natural liability of the skin is secured. Among the CBD oil benefits for skin stands the most important one- vitamin A. Vitamin A is crucial in the growth and differentiation of skin cells. It also helps inhibit excess oil production by the skin glands. Side note, when you control the excess oil production acne is controlled but that topic is for a future blog. So stay tuned! Hemp oil also contains vitamin D, and this together with vitamin A helps in preventing the skin from going dry and flaky. CBD oil is also vital to balancing your endocrine system. The endocannabinoid system is pretty essential for regulation of the skin aging process. As we know or might not know yet, cannabinoids act on the CB-receptors, hence, the herb may be able to slow down the skin aging course by controlling these receptors. So there you have it! I mean how many more things can a simple plant do??!!?? When choosing a CBD oil for skincare purposes remember to opt for a good brand. I myself use Legal Hippie CBD oil! A few notes to stand by are
1. They should contain zero THC
2. Should Score 80 percent or higher in terms of purity 3. Should contain organic ingredients
4. Should have 100 percent USA oil (Legal Hippie is KY Grown)
Sometimes I choose to just rub my face with pure oil! To order your powerhouse of anti aging Legal Hippie CBD click the link below!

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!
- Depression and Anxiety
- 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!
