Getting Through Summer with CBD

Getting Through Summer with CBD

Bug bites, skin rashes, poison ivy, allergies, bee stings and chlorine in pools are all challenging to having healthy skin. CBDA is the designation for CBD that has not been heated up. It is raw CBD and extremely helpful for any kind of inflammatory condition. You can ingest a liquid CBDA but for all of those skin challenges, you may also use a topical. Some topicals are full-spectrum — so you have many different options.

There are salves, creams, and roll-ons that offer CBD, essential oils, calendula, and other healing herbs. We have found that anytime we get a mosquito bite and use a CBD salve the redness and itching go away fairly quickly. If you’re someone who has allergies to certain plants, flowers or grasses then CBD may help reduce those allergies by taking both a liquid/gelcap and using a topical salve.

Chlorine in swimming pools is very harsh on one’s skin. Whether you use a topical salve or a liquid CBDA and put it directly on your skin, you will get some relief. The extreme heat we have experienced this summer can also have a negative impact on our skin. Using CBD soap can reduce the redness, swelling, and itchiness of heat rashes, eczema or poison ivy.

CBD is such a versatile supplement that helps to heal health issues that are both internal and external. Just another great example of the amazing hemp plant and what it offers our bodies.

The Best Way to Take CBD

The Best Way to Take CBD

It turns out that there is no one way or one product that works for all people. So it behooves every individual to look at a wide range of options to make the best decision for themselves. There are four main delivery systems — vapes, liquids, capsules/gelcaps, and topicals.

Vaping is a very fast way to get CBD into your body through your lungs — around a15-minute activation time.This method makes the CBD more bioavailable to your body. Liquids/Tinctures need to be held under your tongue for at least 20-60 seconds and then you may swallow. With the help of the mucous membranes and capillaries these products activate in your body in about a half-hour because this method bypasses your digestive system. Capsules/Gelcaps/Tablets need to go through your digestive system and will take about an hour or possibly two depending on how well-functioning your liver processes supplements. These three options really work on you systemically whereas topicals are working on the targeted areas where you either have pain or a skin issue.

After you have made a decision about which type of product you want to try then it comes down to taste and price. It is always good to sample a drop or two of different tinctures so that you know if you are happy with how they taste. Some products are unflavored and some have added essential oils or sweeteners to make the liquid more palatable.

Sometimes you need to take a product for a few months before you know for certain that it is doing the job you want it to do. If you’re trying to reduce systemic inflammation it is not something that will happen overnight. Your Endocannabinoid System is begging you for CBD and depending on how long you have had the issue it may take a bit more time to see big results. Of course, some people start taking CBD and feel better immediately. Again, every person is different and the right product for you may not work the same for someone else. It is definitely an adventure in taking charge of your health and helping your body to get in balance. The good news is that there are so many wonderful options to choose from and at CBD Jubilee we are happy to help you find just the right product for you!

Be Kind to Your Skin

Be Kind to Your Skin

Taking good care of your body includes taking care of your largest organ which is your skin. As much as we all love to be in the sun or out hiking a trail — our skin may be at risk. Whether it be from a sunburn, a bug bite, poison ivy, or eczema our skin may be screaming at us for help. CBD has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that can help with all of these issues and more.

Topical salves, roll-ons, soaps, and our favorite bath bombs all have the ability to soothe your skin and bring down the redness, itching, burning sensation and general swelling that you may experience out in the summer heat.

When you use a topical you are working on a targeted area and may apply that topical multiple times a day. The faster you get the CBD onto the troubled area, the faster you will feel better. We’ve got so many choices at CBD Jubilee. Come in and try a sample to see what feels good to you.

 

CBD Not Working For You ?

CBD Not Working For You ?

Excited about the CBD hype, yet you can’t seem to find the right CBD that works for you?

Searching for the right CBD product that helps your Endocannibinoid System (ECS) function at its best can take some time. Don’t give up too soon. When taking CBD, our target is to support your ECS and not just quash symptoms. Supplementing with CBD strengthens that receptor system so that you can lead a healthier and happier life. Research scientists have claimed that our ECS, is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in maintaining and establishing human health (Strause, 2017). Didn’t know you had an ECS? You are not alone!  We have only known about our ECS in the last 25 years. However, since there has been a rise in research in both CBD and THC and how it affects the body, they have identified an extraordinary multiplex network of cannabinoid receptors (CBr) expressed in cells of both the central and peripheral nervous system. In addition, animals have one too. Pretty cool right? Nevertheless, our top priority is to bolster our ECS and get our bodies back in balance.

There are many forms to take CBD; tinctures, oils, gel caps, edibles, water, vapes, etc.  Everyone is different so it may take some time to play around to see what works best for you. Not sure what brand? Do some research on your own and then come in and talk to us. We are here to educate you about CBD, how it works in your body and the many different options available. Make sure you are getting the best quality CBD. Most, if not all CBD companies will have their Certificates of Analysis (COA) on their website so you can see exactly what you are putting into your body. Here at CBD Jubilee, we provide the cleanest and safest CBD lines on the market. Everything we carry is non-GMO, third-party lab-tested and we’ve tried it ourselves. Our top brands are Bluebird Botanicals, Hemplucid, CBD Living, Medterra and Select CBD. These are our best selling brands and people come back for them because they WORK. If you are still hesitant, stop on by and let us provide you with the knowledge and support your need.

Spring into Wellness with CBD

Spring into Wellness with CBD

As the temperatures start to warm up it inspires us to get outside and move our bodies. We have to take it somewhat easy at the beginning or we risk pulled muscles, sprains or significant injuries that come from doing too much too soon.

Therefore, no matter how easy you exercise — there are small aches & pains that come with using muscles that may have been inactive for awhile. CBD has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that work so well on those sore muscles. Topicals come in many different forms: creams, salves, roll-ons, patches, oils and more. No matter which one you choose the purpose is the same: work on the targeted area that is causing you pain or stiffness.

Many CBD Topicals include additional healing ingredients such as the homeopathic remedy arnica montana or anti-inflammatory herbs like ginger and turmeric or essential oils that calm like lavender. When you are choosing the right product for you it helps to think about what consistency you like and if you want it to be scented or not. And, you will need to decide what potency you want to use which could vary from 100 mg to 1000 mg of CBD.

The great thing about the many CBD topical options is that you can use them as many times a day as needed to get you the relief you are seeking. It is great to have such a wide variety of choices because each person has their own preferences. Pair a topical with a CBD liquid or capsule and then you can address your pain both systemically and topically. Endocannabinoid System

Challenging Days

Challenging Days

We live in a very stressed-out culture. From young kids, to teenagers, to adults and elders — everyone seems to be grappling with a fair amount of tension in their life. That tension manifests in so many ways. Some people get headaches, others lose focus, some have digestive troubles and many turn to pharmaceutical or recreational drugs to calm down.

On top of all that — we have had a crazy winter. So many grey days and then out of nowhere the sun comes out. It’s a rollercoaster of stress that is no fun to ride. Consider the fact that CBD has the ability to trigger our own Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to help our bodies get into balance. CBD is working to get your ECS to produce more of your own endogenous cannabinoids. It is amazing that our bodies have an innate ability to do this just like we produce enzymes and hormones.

Our bodies and brains crave homeostasis. When you have anxiety, insomnia, pain, etc. then your body is not in homeostasis. CBD may be the answer to how your body processes stress so that instead of feeling poorly — you can feel well. And don’t forget …spring is just around the corner.

 

Try Something New & Healing

Try Something New & Healing

If you are someone who struggles with sleep then it is likely you have already tried many products to help you get a solid night’s rest, such as: herbal blends, neurotransmitter supplements, minerals, pharmaceuticals and more. Or, you have been doing a yoga and meditation practice, have given up caffeine and made sure to have good sleep hygiene.

The thing is…none of those options may be working for you. Maybe your brain is simply overloaded and your ability to quiet your mind is out of reach. Maybe you also have chronic pain and finding a comfortable position in which to sleep is impossible. Or, your body just doesn’t respond well to whatever you have tried and you may have experienced negative side effects.

This is the beauty of CBD. Non addictive, non-psychoactive, non-steroidal and filled with wonderful plant constituents such as essential fatty acids, chlorophyll, flavanoids, Vitamin E and terpenes (aromatic oils of the plant that also have healing properties). All of these elements work together to get your body back into balance or homeostasis.

CBD works in your body to stimulate the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors that are a part of your brain and your nervous, digestive and immune systems. Some products also have added herbs or melatonin to help one sleep. There are so many options and no one product or potency works for all people. Come into our CBD store in  Indianapolis and talk to us or check out our fabulous website www.cbdjubilee.com. We would be happy to give you as much information as we can about CBD in general and the products we sell.

We want EVERYONE to get a great night of sleep so that your body may be restored and rejuvenated for a new day.

 

 

Happy 2019!

Happy 2019!

Now that you’ve spent a few weeks — or maybe the entire year not eating well or exercising as much as you needed — this is the beginning of twelve months of taking good care of yourself. Ready, set, get started on those New Year’s resolutions!

How well did you sleep in the past year? Whether it involves turning off your “monkey mind” so that you can fall asleep or getting back to sleep when you wake in the middle of the night, CBD may be a great option for you. We have liquids that include calming herbs or capsules that have melatonin added. Maybe you just want to chew on a gummie and call it a night.

If you have stress at work or home then that is another way that CBD may be helpful in getting you to an emotionally calmer place. Sometimes a great CBD nano-spray or a chocolate square infused with CBD is all that it takes to help you relax a bit.

And, maybe you have low back pain, a sore neck, arthritis or headaches. CBD is an amazing supplement that helps reduce inflammation and thus, can lessen your pain. We have topical salves, roll-ons, creams and patches. A little something for everyone.

Looking forward to you checking out our website or visiting us at the back of The Hatch!
