Hello! Jeremiah here from Team CBD Jubilee. 🙂
In 2017, I finished my Bachelor’s degree, moved to Indianapolis, and began teaching kindergarten- 7th-grade computer science. I had never taught in a classroom, but I had worked in various youth organizations around the country. I didn’t major in computer science, on the contrary, I was an English major and book nerd. However, my time serving in the U.S. Air Force working in Cyber Operations spoke for my computer skills. So, the school agreed to hire me on an emergency waiver. In my naivety, I thought that my experiences might prepare me for the task at hand. I was incorrect.
No amount of student teaching experience can prepare one for the hilarity of kindergarteners, or the mood swings of middle schoolers. Ultimately, I lasted two years in the classroom before realizing I was ready for a different path. My time as a teacher probably taught me more than I was able to teach my students. Between the brief glimpse I got into an education career, and the fact that my partner is a high school administrator, I’ve garnered some insights into the pressures and mental/emotional health issues that our students and teachers face. For the record, I will not be speaking to students who are younger than 18, that’s for a parent and guardian to decide with the help of a family doctor. But, I will speak to the “student/teacher experience” in general terms.
Teachers rarely sleep. Teachers don’t get normal lunch breaks. Teachers usually work over their annual (fall, holiday, spring, summer) “breaks”. Teachers spend all day in the classroom with our children and then spend their evenings grading homework and preparing for the next day’s lessons. It’s a never-ending cycle that is physically, mentally, and emotionally draining, not to mention the financial stress of being dramatically undervalued and underpaid. In today’s classrooms, many teachers are operating as social workers, mentors, and educators, thus there’s a certain degree of emotional baggage they process or release before coming home. Every aspect of this profession requires intentional steps to maintain balance in the other areas of life. And if the teacher’s role has become more difficult in the capitalist-driven era of 2021, you know the role of “student” has become more challenging as well.
Anyone who has spent time in the classroom knows that the workload is rarely small. Stress and anxiety over assignments and exams can be debilitating. Carrying a backpack, bending over a computer, or sitting at a desk for hours a day can cause excruciating pain and discomfort. For those working on their thesis or upper-level projects, the ability to focus on a single task while your to-do-list continues to grow is a real struggle. And who among us kept normal adult sleeping hours in college? Enter the litany of issues we’ve already mentioned — enter CBD.
CBD is known for helping with anxiety, pain, and sleeplessness. However, other powerful cannabinoids serve other purposes. CBC may help with focus. CBG may calm anxiety, and allow you to be present and alert (and won’t make you sleepy). CBN, on the other hand, may help you find deep restorative sleep… The list goes on! These cannabinoids feed your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and allow your body to do its reparative work naturally. When you take these supplements, you’re feeding your body something it makes naturally: cannabinoids. At CBD Jubilee, we’ve carefully curated products featuring all of these cannabinoids to help students and teachers alike find more joy and productivity in learning. Overcome pain, stress, lack of focus, and exhaustion with these products today and learn how much easier your experience in school can become.
Students and teachers from around the country are joining in the chorus of those singing CBD’s praise. Nearly 50% of New York college students reported using CBD to help cope with student life in a recent study. And this phenomenon isn’t isolated to the east coast. It is happening across the globe as more students learn about the benefits, as discussed in this article. As the stigma and ignorance around hemp and cannabis products slowly recede from mainstream American culture, CBD will continue to take center stage as a safe, daily supplement, perfect for students and teachers alike.
If you know a student or education professional who may need help focusing, sleeping, relaxing, or de-stressing, point them towards CBD; or better yet, send them to CBD Jubilee! There’s no virtue in suffering and suffering itself serves as a distraction from the knowledge that students are supposed to be learning. It IS possible to find balance in life, even for students and teachers. It IS possible to have a focused and alert mind and to feel relief and peace in your body. It’s simply a matter of educating our educators on the benefits of CBD.
The whole topic of CBD is overwhelming for most people. How do I choose a product, how much should I take, how often should I take it, and when will it start helping me? All great questions that need to be answered. That’s what our new YouTube Channel is all about. Helping answer those burning questions you may have about the wide, wide world of hemp and CBD.

Our YouTube Channel is the perfect place to start.
There is a huge variety of CBD products available to consumers. Not only does CBD come in numerous delivery systems — vapes, tinctures, gummies, topicals, edibles, flower and more — but it also comes in three main categories: Isolate, Broad-Spectrum & Full-Spectrum. All CBD products work on your Endocannabinoid System to help get your body back in balance whether you are battling anxiety, depression, insomnia, or pain.
Isolate CBD is exactly what it sounds like. Isolated CBD with no other cannabinoids and no terpenes, flavanoids, or any additional hemp plant constituents. Isolate CBD is made into a powder form and then added to oils, gummies, edibles, dog treats, and vapes. Many people have great success using isolate CBD products for their health concerns. However, you are not getting all the benefits of the plant.
Broad-Spectrum products have the major cannabinoid of CBD and a number of minor cannabinoids (e.g. CBC, CBN, or CBG) but there is no THC. This means you are able to experience the synergy of the multiple cannabinoids working together. The fact that there is no THC is something that many people prefer.
Full-Spectrum CBD products give you a similar mix of major and minor cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, etc. and you also get a minute amount of THC. The legal limit in states that do not have legal cannabis is less than .3% of Delta-9 THC. This is such a tiny amount of THC that you will not experience any of the psychotropic effects that would likely happen with a larger amount of THC. This is why all 50 states now have legalized CBD.

When you think about taking any kind of nutritional supplement, you generally have your morning and your evening pills. With CBD, you are feeding your Endocannabinoid System (ECS), and it may need to be fed throughout the day.
It is so great that CBD comes in so many different forms. You may start your day with CBD tea or coffee to give you a little lift without the negative side effects of caffeine. Then as you move forward, you may want to take a nano-spray or a mint that will work quickly and help you stay calm and focused. As the day goes on, you may find yourself starting to feel stressed so you consider another mint, a gummy, or your vape.
As the evening progresses, it is time to help your body wind down and get ready for bed. Now you have that wonderful CBD tincture that will ease you into a quieter state of mind and allow you to get the deep sleep you need. All of these products are helping to tone up your ECS and get your body & mind in balance. No other supplement works in this foundational and healing manner.
CBD products come in so many varieties that every person can find a delivery system (or two) that they like and products that taste the way they want them to taste. The world of CBD is open to everyone because of the high safety profile of ingesting hemp. It is comforting to be able to take a supplement that will support you without causing you negative side effects or psychotropic effects that you don’t want.
Take CBD daily to boost that ECS and to keep yourself on an even keel. It’s a great day when you feel at peace, out of pain, and well-rested.
Wow. Talk about stressful times! Everybody is sheltering at home and our ability to connect — other than via phone or computer — is greatly compromised. This is difficult for everyone. We are in a time that is unlike anything we have experienced before. We know we need to stay home and stay away from our loved ones and friends and yet, what we crave is physical closeness. We want to be able to share a meal or give each other a hug.
Some people are faring better than others. They’re catching up on cleaning and purging their apartment or house. They’re taking classes online and playing games with family and friends via Zoom or Face Time. For others, it is not so easy.
A pandemic is scary. No disputing that fact. Whether you are exposed, contract a mild case, end up in the hospital on a ventilator or know someone who has — this is frightening to everyone. That means we are living with a great deal of fear, anxiety and depression. All of which can compromise our health.
How about an opportunity to offer your body a supplement that may help you physically, mentally, and emotionally? CBD has the capacity to feed those receptor sites of your Endocannabinoid System that fire up to help you get back in balance. You may need CBD during the day, the night or a little of both. There are so many different delivery systems: liquids, edibles, flower, topicals, coffee and more. Give us a call or check out the website for what products you might like to try. A little CBD can go a long way to helping you feel more like you are on solid ground.
We Are Not Doctors. However, we can offer you a lot of information about the many benefits that our customers have found by taking CBD. Whether it is a tincture, gelcap, edible or topical — CBD is working on your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to fire up that receptor system and help get your body in balance.
What is balance? On one level, it is homeostasis. On another level, it may be how you handle daily stress. Or, it may be less anxiety, less depression, less inflammation, less pain, and better sleep. Each person is different and how they supplement with CBD may not match what works for you. Some people can take CBD at night and it will work on their ECS for a 24-hour period. Some people need to supplement both at night and during the day.
There are no exact protocols with CBD. You are doing your own adjusting and readjusting to find the best product, the right potency, correct dose for you ,and the time it takes for your CBD supplements to get you to your best health.
CBD has endless possibilities in being able to help a wide variety of body, mind and spirit concerns. We love talking to our customers to help them get exactly what they need. Happy customers make our hearts sing.
CBD can be an essential part of keeping you healthy. How? CBD feeds your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to get your body into homeostasis also known as balance. If you have anxiety, insomnia, stress, pain, or any kind of inflammation then CBD will help support your ECS.
Your ECS is the key to your best health and a strong immune system. Getting those CB1 & CB2 receptors fired up and making your own endogenous cannabinoids is the name of the game. You do this by supplementing with CBD liquids, gelcaps, edibles, and more. For example, if you have a cough and tightness in your chest — a CBD topical may help loosen things up. Or, if everything is red and inflamed then CBD or CBG will work to give you the relief you need. Or, if you’re struggling to get a good night’s rest because you feel so unwell, then maybe a CBN product will be the answer.
Of course, there are other supplements that are known to be immune boosting, such as: Vitamin D, Vitamin C, probiotics, mushroom formulas, oil of oregano and so many more. Here’s an opportunity to add CBD to whatever regimen you currently follow and get that systemic inflammation down, reduce your anxiety, lessen your pain, and feel stronger and ready to fight whatever germs come your way.
The hemp plant is amazing. With 113 different cannabinoids and over 200 terpenes (the essential, aromatic oils of the plant) the possibilities for helping support your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) are endless. Each cannabinoid, whether it be CBD, CBC, CBN, CBG, THCA, etc., stimulates your ECS receptors to make more of your own endogenous cannabinoids. Say that three times fast!
Your endogenous cannabinoids have different names than the cannabinoids in the hemp plant. The work they do in your body is profound as they modulate other systems such as your neurological, digestive and endocrine. By taking CBD supplements, you stimulate receptors throughout your brain and body and increase endogenous cannabinoid production. This is key to toning and supporting the ECS.
If CBD hasn’t been working for you then it may be for any of the following reasons: 1)You may not have purchased a high-quality brand with Certificates of Analysis (COA) that show you exactly what you are buying matches what it says on the bottle; 2) You are not taking a high enough potency thus, you are not getting the results you want; 3) You must be consistent in taking your CBD daily just like you would take any other supplement; and, 4) Allowing enough time for your ECS to get “on-line” and function as well as it should is essential as there are no quick fixes.
Depending on your health situation and the length of time you have been struggling may mean that it will take more time for CBD and your ECS to help get your body in balance. CBD works on your body in foundational ways to reduce systemic inflammation and so much more. Feeling good is worth the time, money and commitment because it frees you up to enjoy the rest of your life. Hooray for Hemp!
The first question I ask all of my customers is, “Have you tried CBD?” When they tell me they have tried it and it really isn’t working for them — then I know it is probably for one of the following reasons.
- Poor quality product. If what you buy is not from a reputable company then the label and the lab analysis may not match and that means you may be getting very little CBD. If you are purchasing CBD at a local gas station or salon then you are unlikely to be getting good quality products and you are setting yourself up for a lot of frustration.
- Dosing issues. You are not taking a high enough dose. If, for example, the CBD tincture says 500 mg on the front and you are taking half a dropper daily, then you are only getting 8 mg (that is not a high dose). You may need the full dropper or two droppers which will raise the total number of milligrams to 32. It takes a bit of flexibility to find what dose works for you since no two people are exactly alike.
- Intermittent Use. You are only taking the CBD product periodically. For your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to be well-supported and to get those CB1 & CB2 receptors fired up, then you need to be consistent and take the CBD daily. Just like any other supplement or medication you take. Regular use increases the efficacy of the product and then you are getting the outcomes you want.
- Time. Maybe you got the results you sought within a week or two. But, for many, it may take a few months of changing the number of milligrams per day, changing to another high-quality brand, changing the delivery system (e.g. from a capsule to a liquid) or simply giving your body the time to boost your ECS and reduce systemic inflammation which underlies so many health concerns. Many people walk into a CBD store frustrated with all the medications and therapies they have already tried. If you have experienced a health issue for many years then it behooves you to give CBD at least a few months or more to get you to a place of good health.
Of course, talking to someone with knowledge of the ECS, explaining Certificates of Analysis (COA’s) and discussing how each product works in your body is the key to success. CBD is an amazing supplement that works for so many people. How great would it be if you were one of them?
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!

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.

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 a while. 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, lotions, 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, 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. Some people really like the cooling sensation of menthol and others prefer unscented products. For ease of use, many people like roll-on topicals to get to those hard-to-reach places. You will also need to decide what potency you want to use which could vary from 100 mg to 1000 mg of CBD. Some products are broad-spectrum and some are full-spectrum, too.
Recent studies are being conducted at many research institutions and hospitals to determine the efficacy of CBD topicals. There is so much more we can learn about the best way to use topicals and how they are absorbed into our bloodstream. What we know at CBD Jubilee is that our customers are getting the relief they need and are now able to move with more ease and not spend their day consumed by pain. 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.
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.
