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….

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!

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?

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!
