Wise words from Ralph Waldo Emerson! I've often heard that if one doesn't have their health, then they don't really have anything. Good health is essential to enjoying a long life to the fullest. All the money in the world, no amount of wealth, can make up for the loss of one's health.
Having said that, more and more people are becoming open to trying natural and holistic alternatives to prescription medications. We've all seen the long list of pharmaceutical side effects. Why not consider a healthier option? Some vaccines and medications are no doubt necessary, but do yourself a favor and research other choices that may be available. You may find a better solution for your health!
Keep reading with a sense of humor about CBD as a possibility and learn about your body's Endocannabinoid System that you may not realize you even have!
Feel better from taking CBD?...Well, isn't that special?
Dana Carvey as the Church Lady was one of my all-time favorite Saturday Night Live skits. I'm dating myself here, but I was in college and the Church Lady along with his impression of President HW Bush in the early 90's was classic!
I have jokingly said that I should have named my business website "Church Lady CBD" because while there are still quite a few folks that give CBD a stigma, categorizing it into the marijuana family, I have a strong customer base and support of my church lady (and others) friends.
When I was first getting starting with my online CBD business, I was a bit sheepish in my inquiry of setting up a table of products at our church Country Breakfast and Fall Bazaar, but lots of people in the community were interested and had questions. I added a handful of customers that day and the following year I had a team of advocates (all church members) that were working alongside me.
Of course hemp and marijuana are NOT the same! Hemp has all the beneficial properties of cannabidiol (CBD) and is very low in THC (the stuff that makes a person high), while marijuana is high in THC and low in the healthy CBD. Think of it as wine and grape juice. Both come from the same type of plant, but one (grape juice) offers only health benefits. For instance one may drink Welch's grape juice and stay sober as a judge, but if one drinks wine (while it may also have some health benefits) it has the potential to cause drunkenness. Hemp and CBD are like the "healthy grape juice" properties of the Cannabis sativa plant.
The company in which I have aligned myself is based in my home state of North Carolina and the hemp is grown by 6th generation farmers that were involved in the NC Hemp Pilot Program a few years back. It was founded by a husband and wife and originated out of the need to formulate a pure and safe CBD to give to their children.
It is extremely important to know where your hemp comes from since it is an unregulated industry. Ours has USDA certified organic products with a QR code on every bottle that will immediately show the Certificate of Analysis of what exactly is in that batch of CBD.
We have a Chief Science Officer and are outgrowing the research lab we have at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and he is developing cutting-edge new products using nanotechnology.
My goal is to help educate on why CBD should not be taboo, but is an effective and natural alternative to prescription medications that can be harmful with lots of side effects. This church lady takes it and gives it to her husband, her son, and her pets.
It is truly for everyone because like Dana Carvey's Church Lady, the Endocannabinoid System also made it's debut in the 90's when it was discovered by an Israel doctor.
Every mammal has one, but many are still surprised to learn about it. That's why I'm so passionate about sharing. There may often be a better alternative to some of the over the counter and prescription medications out there.
I'm here to help if you would like to explore any of those. And by the way, it really is SPECIAL! (insert my best Church Lady voice and pursed lips)!!!
Of course, NO MEDICAL CLAIMS here, just a few recommended books on how hemp/CBD may provide health benefits. Please do your own research and check with your doctor on whether or not CBD may be a good fit for you.
