Did you know that by interacting with the receptors in your body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD CAN actually alleviate many conditions women navigate every day: mood swings, cramps, anxiety, stress, breast tenderness, bloating, fatigue, cravings… and hormone imbalance!

In one study, they found that the effects of CBD on plasma prolactin, growth hormones, and cortisol, CBD helped to regulate cortisol secretion!

In another study, researchers said:  cannabinoid exposure could have profound effects on the function of the reproductive system, lactation, metabolism, and the endocrine stress axis.” 

Hemp is naturally packed with omega fatty acids and high in gamma-linolenic acid which is known to help regulate hormones. 

Our hormones are more imbalanced now than ever before, because of the food we eat and our modern environment impacting hormones, libido, and mood.

SO  HOW CBD OIL CAN AFFECT PMS SYMPTOMS

When it comes to reducing the common symptoms of PMS, evidence for the use of CBD is much stronger. 

(And more positive!)

Inflammation is the primary driver behind the pain and discomfort many women experience around the start of their period. And there are several studies that show CBD has a positive effect on reducing systemic inflammation.

CBD Oil may also be able to help reduce those mood swings, irritability, and anxiety that make getting our periods that difficult to endure.

CBD has been shown to act on various receptors in the brain to produce calming, restful, and anti-anxiety effects in animal models. And while we can’t directly translate the results of animal studies to humans, research like this can give us an idea of how CBD might affect our own moods.

Keeping the endocannabinoid system balanced is essential. 

I believe in taking CBD every day for this reason, just as you would a multivitamin. 

But....I also suggest Working to uncover the underlying cause of why you’re experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance in the first place will be so much more valuable than stopping at simply masking the symptoms.

And once you know why those symptoms are happening, you’ll be more empowered to make the lifestyle changes required to help resolve those symptoms at the root.

As a pioneer in cannabis and with a strong belief in this sacred plant capable of touching the lives of many, you’ll find many educational and myth-busting tips on all things “CBD.” Stepping in sync with my formulator and team of PhD’s, the opportunities of hemp reach far beyond CBD, encompassing other non-psychoactive compounds —namely, minor cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG, and CBN—as star-ingredient status.

Today we tap into the art and science of CBN in light of our long-awaited pre-launch for the first HIGH-level CBN Sleep Tonic (stress and sleepless night antidote versus….Ambien).

Talking SLEEP - and lack thereof it.

Sleep deprivation: an estimated one in three Americans are suffering from it and lack the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep a night.

More than slowing you down throughout your day, a chronic lack of sleep can wreak havoc on the immune system, libido, cognitive abilities, and lead to premature aging and disease.

Redefining your ‘sleep hygiene’ — known as your nighttime schedule, pre-bedtime activities, food, and the environment — is the first step to getting adequate rest. If tweaking our sleep hygiene doesn’t work, we often take our troubles to the doctor’s office for a prescription.

CBN brings great hope for those that struggle with finding new sleep hacks, medications, or simply suffering with no resolution.

With no further adoooo…. Lets jump in!

As noted, CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid found in hemp, it’s just one of many that are thought to be supportive in the face of mental or physical stress. CBG (cannabigerol) and CBC (cannabichromene) are known as anti-inflammatory agents. CBN (cannabinol) shows some promise as a sleep aid. While CBD is believed to have these benefits, I believe we can create more nuanced, targeted solutions by incorporating higher levels of these secondary cannabinoids.

STEP ASIDE, CBD—CBN & OTHER CANNABINOIDS ARE RISING IN THE SPOTLIGHT

A growing problem is that some common pharmaceutical sleep aids may actually be doing more harm than good, especially when the cause of sleep problems is not fully understood (or if sleep hygiene is not optimal).

If the root cause of your insomnia is from anxiety or pain, CBD’s signaling of the endocannabinoid system can target and level-set these issues related to a person’s sleep-wake cycle and pain processing, both of which are regulated by the ECS. While it can take some trial and error to find your standard dose for sleep, the general consensus for getting started is to start low, gradually increasing as needed after observing your results.

One of these lesser-known compounds is Cannabinol or CBN. It is vastly understudied since both THC and CBD have taken center stage when it comes to research, media coverage, and legalities surrounding the cannabis industry. And it is true that they are the two compounds with the most significant presence within cannabis plants.

CBN boasts quite a few natural health benefits, much the same as CBD and THC do. However, there are some substantial differences between this cannabinoid and its relatives which are important to be aware of. In this article, we are going to take an in-depth look at CBD and CBN.

We are also going to go over the fundamental similarities and differences between the two. This should help to clear up any misconceptions and hopefully leave you better informed about this more obscure member of the hemp cannabinoid family.

What is CBN

Showing incredible promise as a sleep aid, cannabinol is less abundant/readily available than CBD or THC, though it was one of the first cannabinoids discovered. It’s produced when THC is oxidized, which is why dried-out cannabis flower that has been exposed to oxygen can be a good source for CBN extraction. In addition to being an effective sleep aid, CBN joins CBD and THC in its powerful pain-relieving anti-inflammatory properties, as well as offering possible relief for depression and neurological conditions like epilepsy and Alzheimer's.

What is THC

The main psychoactive component in cannabis, it’s also a powerful analgesic that led to the relatively widespread acceptance of cannabis as a medical treatment for an array of conditions. Its function in medicine has yet to be safely replicated in a pharmaceutical capacity in a way that satisfies patients at large, which in part informs the resurgence of interest in the plant’s powerful medicine and compound isolates. One incredible discovery that’s been made regarding CBD is that its properties can counteract and reduce THC’s classic hallmarks of paranoia and psychoactive effects.

What is CBD?

Well-documented to be a powerful anti-inflammatory, cannabidiol was first discovered in 1940 but has has only recently been approved by the FDA in the anti-seizure drug Epidiolex. Following that remarkable precedent, the potential applications for CBD have become an area of stronger focus, with active research ongoing into the compound’s applications for anxiety disorders, pain, cognition, and more. Case studies as well as state-level legislation are indicating cannabis and CBD-based treatments can be effective for sufferers of PTSD or psychotic disorders. Its impact on the wellness world and shift towards self-care can’t be overstated.

Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a natural compound found within both the Hemp and Marijuana species of cannabis. All of the legally obtained CBD in the United States is sourced from industrial hemp, not marijuana plants. Although marijuana plants do contain some CBD, the amount pales in comparison to that of the hemp plant.

CBD sourced from hemp is also the only kind that is legal at the federal level. The 2018 Farm Act states that industrial hemp must have no more than 3% THC content to be used to create CBD products.

Cannabis is turning out to be an incredibly versatile plant, and CBD is showing real potential in the health and wellness industry. It is known to help with anxiety, depression, insomnia, pain, inflammation, nausea, and cancer treatment-related symptoms.

There are over 100 similar compounds found in hemp, many of which have not yet been studied. of these compounds, CBD and THC are the most well-known, but scientists are uncovering other chemicals that may prove to be beneficial as well.

What is CBN?

CBN, or Cannabinol, is one of these. It is said to have very similar effects on some health conditions, but CBN is more closely related to THC. In fact, Cannabinol is made when THC is either heated or exposed to oxygen. This means that you can turn THC into CBN by either leaving it to sit for some time or by heating it carefully in your oven on a low temperature.

When you think about it, it is kind of amazing how something like Cannabinol can be born from something like THC through oxidization. Yet, it has many different effects. While it is up for debate just how psychotropic CBN is, it can be concluded that it is nowhere near the same level as THC.

It is becoming more apparent through research that CBN has a potent sedative effect. Studies have found that CBN could potentially be as potent of a sleep agent as some of the stronger pharmaceuticals on the market. As little as 2.5 mg of CBN can be just as effective as some mild to moderate sedatives like Valium and Ambien—often prescribed to those who suffer from sleep-related issues.

On top of its sleep-inducing effects, CBN also appears to have many health benefits similar to those found in CBD and THC.

CBD vs. CBN: What are the Key Similarities?

CBD and CBN both come from the same plant family, and science shows that both may be effective for a variety of health conditions. A few of the common health conditions that both of these Cannabis compounds are said to aid in treating are epilepsy, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, pain, and inflammation. They have also both been proven to have anti-bacterial and neuroprotective properties as well.

The amount of scientific data available for CBN is limited as scientists are just now beginning to study it and look more thoroughly into its medical applications. Having said this, it is speculated that THC, CBN, and CBD may work better together for specific health ailments rather than being used in isolation of each other.

This is due to something called the “entourage effect,” the theory that two or more substances work better together than they do apart.

As more research is conducted on CBN and cannabis in general, we will likely learn far more about the different compounds within the cannabis sativa plants and have a better idea of just how closely interlinked they are.

CBD vs. CBN: What are the Key Differences?

Often when you hear about cannabis compounds in the news, it is either THC or CBD that people are talking about. In fact, many people don’t even know that CBN exists unless they have a keen interest in cannabis as a plant medicine.

Although CBD and CBN come from the same plant group, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they have the same effects or chemical make up. CBN starts as a completely different compound. CBN is actually what happens after THC is heated up or is exposed to air. This oxidization process helps to remove a lot of the psychotropic effects of the THC, leaving a mildly sedating compound.

Because CBN is a degraded version of THC, it is best harvested from dried marijuana plants as opposed to fresh marijuana or hemp plants. The reason for this is that industrial hemp plants have less than a .3% THC yield, which isn’t enough when you’re trying to extract any amount of it. Marijuana plants, on the other hand, can have a THC yield of up to 30%, which is more than enough to use for extracting CBN.

Another main difference between CBD and CBN is that CBD doesn’t have any sedative effects. Sure, it will relax you, but is generally not sedating. CBN, on the other hand, is proving to be quite an excellent sedative. Cannabis experts believe that CBN may be a big part of the reason that many people feel glued to the couch after smoking Indica strains of marijuana, which often produce a sedating effect on the user.

The final difference worth mentioning between these two compounds is that CBD has no psychedelic effects whatsoever. CBN, however, is thought to have mild psychotropic effects because it is a direct breakdown of THC.

In Conclusion

CBD and CBN share the fantastic ability to help people live better and healthier lives, but they do so in very different ways. We have only reached the tip of the iceberg when it comes to researching these two compounds. As more studies are conducted, it is likely we will discover even more benefits about the wealth of cannabinoids in cannabis.

 This mini episode and bonus word detox will transform your life, if you put it to work - for your benefit.  Transform your thought life, the words you use - and see your outer world transform.  

Here's How the Words You Choose Shape Your Life

Words have power. 
Their meaning crystallizes perceptions that shape our beliefs, drive our behavior, and ultimately, create our world. Their power arises from our emotional responses when we read, speak, or hear them. Just say the word “fire” while barbecuing, or in the workplace, or in a crowded theater, and you’ll get three completely different but powerful emotional and energetic reactions.

The Illusion of Life

Quantum physics long ago determined that physical matter doesn’t really exist, that everything is just energy in different states of vibration. Nobel Prize winning physicist Werner Heisenberg once stated, “Atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities, rather than one of things or facts.” This energy vibrates at an infinite number of subtle frequencies that cause it to appear as all the different creations we see in our world. There has been a great deal of research in recent years as to whether the universe we live in is actually a holographic experience, and it seems that this is very close to the truth.

And so, it seems life is more of an energy flow than a collection of solid things. What that means for us is that if we stay conscious of the energy we contain, based on the emotions we feel, we can make deliberate choices that alter our frequency and create the realities we desire. If we’re feeling down about something, we can choose to reframe the situation and raise our own spirits. With a renewed perspective and a higher, more positive energetic vibration, we stand a much better chance of bringing good into our lives, rather than bitterly repeating old mistakes.

Words are extremely powerful tools that we can use to uplift our personal energy and improve our lives, though we’re often not conscious of the words we speak, read, and expose ourselves to. Yes, even the words of others can easily affect our personal vibration. Spend a few minutes with a chronic complainer who uses all sorts of negative terms, and you’ll feel your personal energy bottom out. Words have great power, so choose them (and your friends) wisely!

Words & Water

Japanese scientist, Masaru Emoto performed some of the most fascinating experiments on the effect that words have on energy in the 1990’s. When frozen, water that’s free from all impurities will form beautiful ice crystals that look exactly like snowflakes under a microscope. Water that’s polluted, or has additives like fluoride, will freeze without forming crystals. In his experiments, Emoto poured pure water into vials labeled with negative phrases like “I hate you” or “fear.” After 24 hours, the water was frozen, and no longer crystallized under the microscope: It yielded gray, misshapen clumps instead of beautiful lace-like crystals. In contrast, Emoto placed labels that said things like “I Love You,” or “Peace” on vials of polluted water, and after 24 hours, they produced gleaming, perfectly hexagonal crystals. Emoto’s experiments proved that energy generated by positive or negative words can actually change the physical structure of an object. The results of his experiments were detailed in a series of books beginning with The Hidden Messages in Water, where you can see the astounding before and after photos of these incredible water crystals.

The Power of Gratitude

In another experiment, Emoto tested the power of spoken words. He placed two cups of cooked white rice in two separate mason jars and fixed the lids in place, labeling one jar “Thank You” and the other, “You Fool.” The jars were left in an elementary school classroom, and the students were instructed to speak the words on the labels to the corresponding jars twice a day. After 30 days, the rice in the jar that was constantly insulted had shriveled into a black, gelatinous mass. The rice in the jar that was thanked was as white and fluffy as the day it was made. This dramatic example of the power of words is also detailed in Emoto’s books.

Throw-away Words

How many times a day do we throw our words away? We say things like, “I hate my hair,” “I’m so stupid,” “I’m such a klutz.” We never think that these words bring negative energy into our vibration and affect us on a physical level, but they do. Emoto’s experiments were conducted with water. Why? Because sound vibration travels through water four times faster than it does through open air. Consider the fact that your body is over 70% water and you’ll understand how quickly the vibration from negative words resonates in your cells. Ancient scriptures tell us that life and death are in the power of the tongue. As it turns out, that’s not a metaphor.

Say That Again

Some of us are in the habit of using the same negative words over and over again out of habit. The problem is that the more we hear, read, or speak a word or phrase, the more power it has over us. This is because the brain uses repetition to learn, searching for patterns and consistency as a way to make sense of the world around us. Only after being burned a few times can we understand that fire is always hot. You may not remember the exact end date of the Civil War, but odds are you still know what 8 x 9 is because you had to repeat your multiplication tables over and over again, drilling it into your consciousness. I’m sure you’ve experienced having a song stuck in your head all day long, and try as you might, you just can’t get the melody out of your head. Repetition is the most powerful tool to imprint something into our minds and keep it there.

This is of particular concern when we consider a phenomenon called the Illusion of Truth Effect. It basically proves that any statement we read, see, or speak regularly is seen as more valid than one we’re exposed to only occasionally.

Amazingly, it makes no difference whether the information is true or false. The only thing that matters is how often we’re exposed to it. Research from the University of California at Santa Barbara clearly shows that a weak message repeated twice becomes more valid than a strong message heard only once. Even one repetition has the power to change our minds. The same goes for pictures, which are just thoughts and ideas concentrated into an image. Repetition increases our mental validation of anything we’re exposed to, which is why it works so well in political propaganda.

If we’re not fully conscious of what we’re exposing ourselves to, consistency will trump truth every time. Now consider how many times you’ve falsely called yourself stupid, untalented, ugly, or anything else, and you begin to understand how your internal propaganda shapes a false self-image.

1. Making Words Work.

To consciously harness the power of words for your benefit, start with the ones you’re using.

2. No Name-Calling or Self-Criticism.

Everyone is doing the best they can at any moment in time with the consciousness they have to work with, including you. Be kind and offer yourself the same empathy and compassion you’d extend to anyone else.

3. Stop All Self-Deprecation.

Never make your body, or something you’ve accomplished, or anything else in your life the butt of a joke. Words have power, and quantum energy doesn’t have a sense of humor.

4. Resist Gossiping and Speaking Ill of Others.

It’s impossible for your words to resonate in anyone else’s body but your own.

5. Go on a Negativity Diet.

Instead of saying that a meal was terrible say, “I’ve had better.” You’ve basically said what you wanted to say without putting negative energy through your body—you even used a positive word to do it!

6. Boost the Positive Energy of Words.

Instead of saying something like you had a good time at a concert, ramp up the positive energy by saying great, terrific, or fantastic, instead. These feel much better and generate a bigger energetic response in the body.

7. If you have some negative nancys in your circle of friends,

limit the time you spend with them or find better friends. Negative energy has a way of dragging everything surrounding it in, like a big black hole. Avoid it when you can.

8. Surround yourself with positive, uplifting words.

Put affirmations on sticky notes around your home and office that say wonderful things about you, your family, or your goals. Wear clothes that have positive messages or phrases on them. Imagine the kind of positive energy you’ll be generating for yourself when you’re wearing positivity all day long. As you keep doing these things, you use the power of repetition in a highly effective way for your benefit. You have the power to change your world, and using words consciously is one of the quickest ways to shift the energy you bring into your life.

 

BONUS! Negative Word Detox!

This challenge holds the power to meaningfully and materially change your life.

For the next month, I want to invite you on a personal challenge and self-actualization upgrade by making the commitment to refrain from negative self-judgment and criticism.

You’ve probably done some sort of dietary fast or a cleanse in your life. I’ve done a few myself, but if I could only do one fast ever again it would be this one, hands down.

You see, whatever is happening in your relationships, finances, health, and emotions is rooted in the dominant tone of your thinking and your habits. The frequency that you share with your thoughts, underlying subconscious beliefs and what you allow into your soul make ALL the difference in what your life looks like - right now.

For the next three weeks, I invite you to walk the path of healthier thinking and self-talk.

You’ll get to choose and change your patterns so that you can create the experiences you want. Want better relationships? More appreciation? Opportunities? Would you like to just feel better inside? It all stems from your thinking and the way you treat yourself.

The process is simple, notice self-harming thoughts, release and replace them. You may say to yourself “its not easy.” But it is - it just takes focus and effort. Do NOT trick your mind by stating “it isnt easy.” That’s no-no number one. You’re totally capable!

It requires perseverance and that’s where most of us get beat ourselves up. We lose our motivation or something upsets us and we fall back into old patterns. This is why I do this challenge any time I start to feel the creep of anxiety or depression or frustration in my energetic bubble.

Even more powerful, grab your friends or family and do it as a group! This allows you to rely on each other for motivation and support. We are stronger and more powerful together.

You’ve got nothing to lose and the whole world to gain.

Let me know how it goes! All my love and light! Choose Wisely!

Full Show Notes:

We all want beautiful, silky-smooth hair. Unfortunately for most of us, though, knots and tangles are an inevitable part of life.

You can have gorgeous, knot-free hair! All it takes is some TLC to get those pesky knots out. And with a few tips on how to prevent them altogether, your hair will be looking better than ever.

What Causes Knots In Hair?

Hydrate your hair for knot-free living.

You may have noticed that certain types of hair seem to be more prone to knots and tangles than others. But what is it that actually causes your hair to knot?

Tangles are caused by the exterior layer of your hair, which is known as the cuticle, getting damaged. This means that instead of laying flat and closed, your cuticles are open and get caught on each other, causing knots.

Another way that tangles are caused is by your hair not being sufficiently hydrated. Always make sure to keep your hair properly hydrated by using the right shampoos, conditioners and hair care products for your specific type of hair.

Top 3 Ways To Undo Knots In Hair

1. Undoing Knots While Brushing

Brushing your hair the right way can help keep it smooth.

If you have knots in your hair and you don’t want to end up looking like a frizz-ball, try applying a small amount of oil based or silica based serum to your hair before brushing it.

This will help the brush go through your hair more easily, which will help detangle your tresses. Otherwise, you can opt to use a regular detangler. Start from the ends of your hair and work your way up, then brush out your hair gently.

2. Undoing Knots Caused By Products

Olive oil can help smooth your hair.

Yes, you use products to make your hair better. Sometimes, though, you may have applied more product than intended, especially when it comes to hairspray. It’s so easy to spray too much or to spray too close to your hair. This can often lead to unwanted tangles.

If that’s the case, your best bet is probably a bit of oil. Use a natural oil, such as argan oil or olive oil, or a serum, and apply it around halfway down your hair. You don’t want your roots to look like an oil bath. Work the oil through your hair until the tips, and then brush it gently. The oil will break down the product and help add moisture to your hair, making it softer and more manageable.

3. Undoing Knots In Wet Hair

Wet hair doesn’t have to be knotty.

After coloring your hair, you want to be careful on untangling the hair. Its just gone through a chemical process and is fragile. Same with hard water, these are ph imbalances in the hair that you want to be careful - as they build up over time, dry the hair and can cause it to snap.

If wet, knotty hair is your struggle, apply a good conditioner and use a wide-toothed comb to work it through your tangles. When drying your hair, blot or squeeze it dry rather than rubbing it. Rubbing your hair dry can cause it to tangle, and that’s exactly what we’re trying to avoid here.

How To Prevent Knots In Hair

But as the old adage goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This rings true when it comes to knots in your hair as well. I mean, rather than having to deal with knots, it’s even better to prevent them in the first place, right?

Change Your Hairstyle

Shake up your hairstyle to reduce knotting.

The same hairdo day in, day out, was actually contributing to my knots and tangles. When you tie your hair in the same place all the time, it causes stress to your hair.

Over time, this can build up and cause hair damage – which you might recognize as knots. So, do yourself a favor and have a few different hairstyles for every day. It’s also best to use a scrunchie that’s covered in material, as these types are softer on your hair than elastic hair ties.

Sleep With Your Hair In Mind

I like to put my hair in a soft bun when I got to bed, not allwoing it to tangle.

Also, while cotton may be cheaper, silk pillowcases are best for hair that is prone to tangling.

Condition, Condition, Condition!

A good conditioner is important for your hair.

Yes, knotty hair is all about conditioner, ladies. Make sure you’re using a good quality conditioner, and use it regularly (at least every time you shampoo) to keep the knots at bay.

You want equal parts moisture and protein. Take care to condition the ends of your hair to keep them healthy and strong. A leave-in or deep conditioning once a week is also a great idea for keeping moisture in your hair and preventing tangles.

Use A Hair Mask

Besides helping to detangle your hair, a weekly hair mask will also help it become shiny and silky and even help it to grow faster. It’s not a huge amount of effort, and it’ll give you some downtime to relax while your hair soaks in all the goodness.

Why not try our Evoq Hair Mask? After you apply it to your hair, leave it under a shower cap to sit. Run yourself a hot bath, turn on some soft music, and just let yourself be. Besides helping to condition your hair and prevent knots, you’re also unwinding and releasing your stress. Win-win!

Brush Those Locks

If your hair is super prone to frizzing (which generally comes along with knotty hair, unfortunately), you may be tempted to skip brushing. Don’t, though! Use a wide-toothed comb to get rid of knots, and brush gently and regularly to achieve (almost) tangle-free hair.

Go Easy On The Heat

Let your hair dry naturally.

Consistent heat is one of the main causes of hair damage – and one of the ways hair damage manifests itself is in the settings on your appliances, so your hair isn’t getting literally fried.

Conclusion

Knots are knot a life sentence! True, you might have to get used to some new hairstyles or pillowcases, or find ways to style your hair without subjecting it to heat all the time.

But in the end, you only stand to gain. Because healthier, shinier hair is not something that just happens.

With a little effort on your part, your knotty struggle can become a thing of the past.
