How Does CBD Interact with Medications?

April 15th, 2021 by David Kranker

CBD Interact With Medications

Although CBD is considered safe, with minimal side effects, there is a possibility of interactions with some prescription and over-the-counter medications. In particular, CBD may interact with medications that have a “grapefruit warning.” Before adding CBD or any supplement to your diet, you should always consult with your physician.

Green Wellness Life offers an array of high quality CBD products, including oils and tinctures, capsules, topical lotions, balms and salves, and edibles. If you’re interested in trying CBD, read on to learn more about how CBD may interact with other medications that you may be taking.

How Could CBD Interact with Medications?

Current research shows that CBD is generally safe and well-tolerated by most people, with few side effects. However, it is possible for CBD to interact with other medications due to how the human body metabolizes both drugs and supplements.

When we take medicine or another substance, our bodies have to break it down, or metabolize it. This happens throughout the body. Our bodies produce enzymes known as cytochrome P450 (CYP450) to convert these substances so that they can be eliminated from the body more easily.

Any medication or supplement that affects CYP450 has the potential to change how our bodies metabolize other substances by either increasing or decreasing the rate of metabolism. This can cause a drug interaction, as the substance in question may stay in our bodies for much longer or leave our bodies much more quickly.

One enzyme within the CYP450 family, CYP3A4, is responsible for breaking down certain cannabinoids, including CBD. When it metabolizes CBD, however, the CBD interferes with CYP3A4. Similarly, some medications inhibit CYP3A4. As a result, some medications may not be as effectively metabolized when taking CBD – and CBD may not be metabolized effectively when taking certain medications.

If the CYP3A4 is inhibited – either by a cannabinoid or a medication – it can cause an interaction, because your body won’t process the medication (or CBD) in the way that it should. This may lead to increased side effects if the medicine stays in your system for too long, or the medication may not be as effective if your body metabolizes it too quickly.

Can I Safely Take CBD While Taking Medications?

Before adding any supplement to your diet, you should always consult with your doctor. We want to repeat this…You should always consult with your doctor! They can help you determine if CBD will interact with your other medications, advise you on serving size, and may even be able to recommend specific products to try. Your doctor may also order blood work to ensure that your medications are at an optimal level in your body after starting CBD.

If you are taking a medication with a “grapefruit warning,” that medicine may interact with CBD. Like cannabinoids, a chemical compound in grapefruit and certain other citrus fruits inhibits CYP3A4, which can slow the metabolism of medicines. A good rule of thumb is that if a medicine has a grapefruit warning, CBD may also interact with that medication.

A number of prescription and over-the-counter medications have a grapefruit warning. These include:

  • Some statin drugs, which are used to lower cholesterol, such as Zocor and Lipitor
  • Some medications that treat abnormal heart rhythms, including Pacerone and Nexterone
  • Certain medications that treat high blood pressure, such as Procardia and Adalat CC
  • Some organ transplant rejection drugs, including Sandimmune and Neoral
  • Certain anti-anxiety medications, like buspirone
  • Certain corticosteroids used to treat Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, including Pacerone and Nexterone
  • Some antihistamines, like Allegra

Other medications, including antibiotics, blood thinners, erectile dysfunction medications, pain medications, immunosuppressants, mood medications, and anticancer medications, may also have a grapefruit warning. Because so many drugs have a grapefruit warning (and may also interact with CBD), it is important to talk to your doctor, pharmacist or other healthcare professional before adding CBD to your diet.

Scientists have also performed studies on specific medications used to treat epilepsy to determine if CBD interacts with them. A small 2015 study found that CBD elevated the levels of an anti-seizure medication, clobazam, in children with hard-to-treat epilepsy. A second study in 2017 found that taking CBD with the anti-seizure medications clobazam and desmethylclobazam could increase the serum levels of the medications. In both studies, researchers determined that it was safe to take CBD with these medications, but noted that blood tests should be performed to ensure that the medications remain at a therapeutic level.

If your doctor approves taking CBD with your current prescriptions, you should watch for any new or increased side effects. If you experience drowsiness, nausea, sedation, fatigue, diarrhea, changes in appetite or weight, or a change in the effectiveness of your prescription medication, make an appointment with your healthcare provider to talk about it.

You may be able to minimize any possible interactions by using a topical lotion, cream, balm, or salve. Unlike CBD that you take orally, topical CBD doesn’t enter the bloodstream, so there is a lower risk of an interaction with other medications. Topical CBD is most often used for localized pain and inflammation.

Buying High Quality CBD Online

While the research is still emerging, scientists have found that CBD has a lot of potential health and wellness benefits. If you are interested in trying CBD, consult with your doctor first – particularly if you have a health condition and are taking any medications. Once you get the go ahead from your doctor, the next step is to find safe, high quality CBD.

At Green Wellness Life, we only sell products that have been independently tested by third party laboratories, so that you can be sure that you are getting what you pay for – and nothing else. Our products are all made from industrial hemp grown in the United States. While we aren’t doctors and cannot diagnose or treat any medical or mental health condition, we are happy to share our insight on CBD with you – along with the latest research.

Is Hemp Gluten Free?

February 12th, 2021 by David Kranker

Gluten Free CBD Oil

Nearly 5 million Americans follow a gluten-free diet. Gluten, a protein found in certain grains (like wheat, rye, and barley), is linked to inflammation and digestive issues for people who suffer from celiac disease and gluten intolerance or sensitivity. Eliminating gluten can be a way to control gastrointestinal symptoms and (for those with celiac disease) avoid causing damage in their small intestine.

If you are interested in trying products made from the hemp plant – such as CBD oil – you may be curious about whether hemp is gluten free (GF). The good news is that hemp itself is gluten-free (GF). However, hemp can be grown in the same fields as grains that do contain gluten. If you are on a GF diet, you should be sure to only purchase products that are certified gluten free.

Green Wellness Life offers a full range of products made from hemp, including CBD oil capsules, topicals, and edibles. Many of our products are gluten free, making them a safe choice for anyone who wants to explore hemp and/or CBD while maintaining a gluten free diet.

What Is Hemp?

Hemp is a type of cannabis, a flowering plant in the Cannabaceae family. It is very similar to the marijuana plant, with one key difference: the level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the psychoactive component in marijuana that makes you feel high or stoned.

Under U.S. law, to be considered hemp, a cannabis plant must contain no more than 0.3% THC. Hemp that has 0.3% or less THC content by dry weight can be legally grown and sold in the United States. By contrast, the THC content of marijuana is often 30% or greater.

Hemp has a number of uses. It can be turned into a number of products, including paper, textiles, animal feed, plastic, and clothing. It can also be used to make food products, such as hemp seeds, hemp protein powder, hemp milk, and hemp oil.

There are a number of nutritional benefits associated with hemp seed, which is considered a complete protein that is high in fiber. The stalks, leaves and flowers of hemp also contain compounds known as cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD). When CBD is extracted from hemp, it can be made into CBD oil and various other products.

Is Hemp GF?

The hemp plant itself does not contain any gluten. However, hemp is often grown in rotation with other crops that contain gluten, such as wheat. Crop rotation is a practice used by farmers to return nutrients to the soil and increase soil health.

Because farmers rotate hemp with grains, they often use the same equipment to harvest, store, and transport these crops. This raises the possibility of cross-contamination. While hemp is GF, there is a chance that some hemp could be above the legal limit of 20 parts per million of gluten.

If you are interested in products made from hemp, the best way to avoid gluten cross contamination is to seek out products that are gluten free. Manufacturers can only use this description on their packaging or in their advertising if their product has less than 20 ppm of gluten.

Should I Take a Hemp Product If I Am on a Gluten Free Diet?

There are many potential benefits associated with hemp and products derived from the hemp plant (such as CBD oil). Hemp itself is a great source of fiber, magnesium, and essential fatty acids. As noted above, early research shows that CBD may reduce the symptoms of certain conditions – including digestive issues that often lead people to adopt a gluten free diet.

Before adding any supplement to your diet, you should always consult with your doctor. They will be able to advise you on potential interactions, proper serving sizes, and whether the supplement may help your specific condition.

If you do decide to try a hemp product, be sure to only purchase items that are certified gluten free. For CBD oils and other products, look for a “GF” designation on the label. In particular, be sure that the carrier oil used for a CBD tincture is gluten free and that a CBD capsule is not made with wheat starch.

You should also seek out CBD products that are made from industrial hemp grown in the United States, and that have been independently tested for quality. This can help to assure you that you are getting what you pay for – and nothing else.

Green Wellness Life offers an array of gluten free CBD products, including:

We also offer highly nutritious, GF hemp products, such as Patsy’s hemp hearts.

Buy Gluten Free Hemp Products Online

There are a lot of great reasons to add hemp to your diet, whether you chose to sprinkle hemp hearts on your salad, use hemp oil for cooking, or take CBD as a supplement. If you are following a gluten free diet, you can still take advantage of the benefits of hemp by looking for a product that is labeled GF.

What Is the Best Time of Day to Take CBD Oil?

February 5th, 2021 by David Kranker

Best Time To Take CBD Oil

There are a lot of potential benefits associated with CBD. Yet because CBD is a relatively new product and isn’t regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it can be hard to find reliable information to answer the questions you may have about taking this supplement. For example, even after figuring out what CBD oil is right for your needs, you may wonder when and how you should take it.

The best time of day to take CBD oil depends on a number of factors, including why you are taking it, what type of CBD you are taking, and the serving size that is right for you. There is no single best time to take CBD oil that will work for everyone. Instead, you should find a time that works for you – and make sure to take it consistently.

Green Wellness life offers a full range of CBD oils to meet your unique needs. All of our products have been independently tested so you can be assured that you are getting what you pay for (and nothing that you don’t want). Below, we outline what you need to know about CBD oil – including when you should take it.

The Basics of CBD Oil

CBD – or cannabidiol – is one of hundreds of naturally-occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant. These compounds, known as cannabinoids, are thought to interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, or ECS. Unlike THC, another well-known cannabinoid, CBD is not psychoactive and won’t make you feel high or stoned.

The ECS is a complex cell-signaling system that is thought to be responsible for maintaining homeostasis, or balance, in our bodies. It has been linked to a number of functions in our bodies, including chronic pain, inflammation, mood, sleep, muscle formation, metabolism, appetite and digestion.

While scientists aren’t exactly sure how CBD interacts with the ECS, preliminary research has found that CBD may help with a range of conditions, including:

Because each person is different – and medical and mental health conditions can be complex – it is important to always consult with your doctor before adding any supplement to your diet, including CBD.

How to Figure Out the Best Time of Day to Take CBD Oil

Every person reacts differently to CBD oil. Depending on your unique body chemistry and needs, you may need a higher or lower serving size or even a different form of CBD. In the same way, the best time for you to take CBD oil may be different from the best time for your spouse, friend, or other loved one.

The key to developing an effective CBD routine is to be consistent. By providing your body with a consistent level of cannabinoids at roughly the same time every day, you are more likely to see the results that you desire. Figuring out the best time to take CBD oil involves examining the reason why you are taking CBD, the type of CBD oil you are using, and your serving size.

Why Are You Taking CBD?

In determining the best time of day to take CBD oil, the first question to ask yourself is why exactly you are taking it. As noted above, CBD may offer benefits to people suffering from a number of conditions. The optimal time to take CBD oil is based in part on what issue you are seeking to address.

For example, if you find yourself struggling with insomnia, you may want to take CBD oil in the evening before bed. Because research has shown that CBD can address symptoms of anxiety, taking it at night may allow you to relax enough to sleep soundly through the night. However, if you are dealing with another issue – like chronic pain – then your best bet may be to take CBD oil in the morning, so that it can help you throughout the day. Below are a few different benefits that come with taking CBD in the morning vs. taking CBD in the evening.

What CBD Can Do For You In The Morning

  • Help you cope with daily stress: Most of our days are filled with various stressors and life can often throw unexpected curveballs that only increase our stress levels. CBD has been found to help reduce stress and anxiety. If you take CBD in the morning, it can help you manage your stress levels throughout the day.
  • Relax your muscles: Sometimes you may wake up a bit stiff or sore from a position you slept in the night prior. Taking CBD in the morning can soothe that soreness and relax your muscles, so that you’re ready to take on the day.
  • Better enhance your focus: CBD is not like coffee or soda. It’s not going to give you a jolt of energy in the morning to cure your brain fog. However, CBD helps work to balance the body and reduce stress. In this way, CBD can help you focus on your tasks rather than having your mind wander elsewhere.

What CBD Can Do For You In The Evening

  • Help relieve stress after a long day: While CBD is great to take in the morning to keep stress levels low throughout the day, it can also be great to take in the evening so that you can leave your stress behind and relax for the night.
  • Get a better night’s sleep: CBD has been shown to have many benefits for sleep. Scientists have found that CBD can reduce REM sleep disorders and help to maintain healthy sleep cycles. CBD’s stress reducing properties can also help you get to sleep if stress and anxiety keep you up.

What Type of CBD Oil Are You Taking?

You can buy all types of CBD products, from topicals to edibles to tinctures to capsules. The type of CBD oil that you are taking is an important consideration in figuring out when to take it.

Generally, a CBD oil tincture will have the most immediate effect. After placing the CBD Oil under your tongue, you may start to notice a difference as the oil is absorbed into the body’s endocannabinoid system. For this reason, some people use a CBD oil at night, right before they go to bed, to help with anxiety.

By contrast, a CBD capsule offers a slower release. If you have an issue that crops up throughout the day, like seizures, then you may find that a capsule is the best choice for you. Similarly, edible products, like CBD gummies, take longer to digest and be absorbed into your system.

Topical CBD oil products, like lotions and salves, are rubbed directly on the skin. These can be applied as needed, such as rubbing a balm stick onto sore muscles after a workout, or as part of a regular routine. For example, if you struggle with acne, you may choose to use a CBD face cream every morning or in the evening before bed.

What Serving Size of CBD Oil Are You Taking?

The final consideration in determining when you should take CBD oil is your serving size. After consulting with a doctor and starting off with the lowest possible serving size(we recommend 10-15 mg daily to start with a full spectrum, and 20 to 25 mg with an isolate)you may find yourself taking a larger serving size of CBD than you initially started with each day.

For example, if you are taking a total of 50 mg of CBD per day, you may find that it is easiest to take it all at once. However, if you find the CBD wearing off in the afternoon – then you may choose to split your servings in half to once in the morning and once in the evening. In this way, you may benefit from the more immediate effects of CBD oil each time that you take it.

Whatever time that you decide to take CBD oil, try to be consistent. You will see the most benefits from CBD if you make it a habit. Taking it at the same day every day – like you would with a vitamin – can help you remember to take it and get the best results.

Ready to Optimize Your Health with CBD Oil? We Can Help.

CBD oil can be incredibly beneficial, but it can be hard to figure out what to take, how to take it, and when to take it. Understanding how CBD works and the way that it is absorbed into your body can help you make a decision that is right for you.

Reasons CBD Might Not Be Working for You

January 11th, 2021 by David Kranker

Reasons CBD Is Not Working

In recent years, CBD – or cannabidiol – has become incredibly popular. This naturally-occurring compound is derived from the hemp plant, and may boost your health in a number of ways. While the research on CBD is still developing, scientists have linked CBD to a host of benefits. But, what if you have taken CBD, and aren’t seeing any benefits? Is it all just a bunch of hype?

There are a number of reasons why CBD might not be working for you. Before giving up on CBD entirely, read through our list of why you may not be experiencing the benefits of CBD – and what you can do about it.

You Aren’t Taking Enough

It can be hard to find the right serving size of CBD and that may be the reason CBD might not be working for you. What works for one person may not be right for another person. That can make it tricky to land on the serving size that will give you the benefits that you seek.

We recommend consulting with your doctor before starting CBD. They might be able to give you an idea of how much you should take each day. If they don’t, you should start with a small serving size and gradually increase it over time. Keep track of the amount that you take and how it makes you feel to better understand what works your body.

Many people find that CBD is most beneficial when it has a chance to build up in your body. This allows your body to have a consistent level of CBD, which can help the body maintain homeostasis, or balance. Again, because each person’s body chemistry is different, adjust your serving size and keep careful notes to figure out what helps you feel your best.

You Need a Different Type of CBD

CBD comes in a variety of formulations. If you aren’t feeling the effects of the CBD that you are taking, it may be that you simply need to try a different delivery method.

There are five broad options for taking CBD: tinctures or oils, topical products (like creams and salves), vape oils, CBD capsules, and edibles (such as gummies). Generally, taking a tincture under your tongue (sublingually) allows you to get the quickest results because the CBD can be absorbed directly into your bloodstream. By comparison, when you eat an edible, the product goes through your digestive system and it can take longer to feel an effect.

If you have been eating CBD gummies or smoking a CBD vape, it may be time to consider a different delivery method – like placing a drop of CBD oil directly under your tongue. Alternatively, if you have localized pain, your best bet may be to use a topical cream, salve, or balm to apply the CBD exactly where you need it. The staff at Green Wellness Life can help to recommend a product that will meet your needs.

The CBD You Are Using Isn’t High Quality

While there is a lot to be excited about when it comes to CBD, it isn’t always easy to know what you’re getting when you purchase a CBD product. Because CBD is not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it is all too easy to buy a scam product. If you’ve been taking CBD and don’t think that it is doing anything, it may be because the product you are using contains little to no CBD.

Labeling accuracy is a big problem in the CBD marketplace. According to one study, just 31% of CBD products studied actually contained the amount of CBD advertised. That means that there is a very high likelihood that the CBD product that you are using doesn’t have nearly as much CBD as it claims.

You can avoid this problem by only purchasing high-quality CBD from reputable sources. In particular, you should only purchase CBD that has been independently tested by a third party laboratory. The company should make those lab results available online for your review. If they don’t, avoid buying their CBD.

You Haven’t Given It Enough Time to Work

With all of the excitement about CBD in the health and wellness world, you may think that your world will change the first time that you try it. When it doesn’t, you’ll probably be disappointed – and want to quit taking it.

The important thing to remember is that while CBD has a lot of great properties, it isn’t a miracle cure. If you have been suffering from chronic pain for years, you probably won’t get instant relief the minute you place a drop of CBD oil under your tongue. Instead, it often takes time to build up in your system before you feel relief.

While many prescription medications may work immediately, they often come with a range of nasty side effects (like the addictiveness of prescription painkillers) that CBD doesn’t have. Give your body time to build up a level of CBD before deciding that it doesn’t work. You may find that you notice a difference after taking CBD consistently for a few weeks or even months.

It Isn’t For You

While the early research into potential benefits of CBD is promising, that doesn’t mean that CBD is right for everyone. CBD works by interacting with our body’s endocannabinoid system, or ECS. However, scientists don’t know exactly how CBD interacts with the ECS – or why each person’s system is slightly different.

An individual’s experience with CBD is based on factors such as their metabolism, body chemistry, and even their genetics. Just like with any other supplement, what works for one person may not be right for another person.

Spend some time experimenting with brands, products and serving sizes to see if you experience benefits from CBD. If it doesn’t, you can move onto something else with the knowledge that you gave CBD a shot – and that it just may not work for some people.

Want to Try CBD? We’re Here to Help.

While there is a lot to be excited about when it comes to CBD, taking it isn’t as simple as opening up a pill bottle. There may be one or several reasons that CBD might not be working for you. As with other natural products, it may take some time and patience to figure out what serving size, type, and brand of CBD works best for your unique body chemistry. At Green Wellness Life, we’ll walk you through the process and give you recommendations for CBD products that fit your needs.

While we aren’t doctors and can’t diagnose or treat any medical conditions, we can offer you our extensive experience with CBD. Our CBD products have all been independently tested for CBD and accurate labeling.

How Does CBD Oil Make You Feel?

November 17th, 2020 by David Kranker

How does CBD make you feel

CBD, or cannabidiol, seems to be everywhere these days. Since the production of industrial hemp became legal in the United States, CBD products – which are made from hemp – have become incredibly popular. It’s hard to walk into a pharmacy, boutique or even a big box store without seeing advertisements for CBD products.

There is a lot of confusion surrounding CBD and how it is different from marijuana. There are also a lot of CBD scams out there, making false or overblown claims about what CBD can do. It is little wonder that so many people have questions about what CBD is, how it works, and whether it will make them feel high or stoned.

CBD will not make you feel intoxicated. However, depending on how you use it, CBD oil may help you feel good in other ways, such as by reducing your anxiety or helping you get a better night’s sleep. Below, we outline the latest research on CBD and give you our take on how CBD oil will make you feel.

How CBD Works: What We Know

CBD is one of at least 100 naturally occurring active compounds found in the Cannabis plant. These compounds are known as cannabinoids. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is not psychoactive, so it won’t make you feel high.

While the research is still early, scientists believe that CBD works by interacting with our bodies’ endocannabinoid system, ECS. The ECS is a complex system that has three core components: endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes.

Endocannabinoids are made by our bodies. They are similar to cannabinoids like CBD, but are produced by the body instead of being found in a plant. Our bodies produce endocannabinoids as needed to help regulate internal functions.

Endocannabinoid receptors are found throughout our bodies. CB1 receptors are found in the central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are mostly found in the peripheral nervous system. Endocannabinoids can bind to both types of receptors, with a different effect based on where the receptor is located and which endocannabinoid binds to it.

Finally, enzymes break down endocannabinoids once they have performed their function. Together, these three components work to regulate a number of processes within the body, including:

  • Chronic pain
  • Metabolism
  • Appetite and digestion
  • Mood
  • Learning and memory
  • Inflammation
  • Sleep
  • Cardiovascular system function
  • Motor control
  • Liver function
  • Reproductive system function
  • Bone remodeling and growth
  • Skin and nerve function
  • Stress

Each of these things contributes to homeostasis within our bodies, or balance. For example, if you hurt your back, your body may release endocannabinoids to bind to CB1 receptors in a spinal nerve to relieve pain and to bind with CB2 receptors in immune cells to signal that your body is experiencing inflammation. In this way, the ECS works to maintain the stability of our internal environments.

Experts are not entirely sure how CBD interacts with the ECS. While THC can bind to CB1 or CB2 receptors, scientists do not believe that CBD does this. Instead, CBD may work to prevent enzymes from breaking down endocannabinoids so that they can have a greater effect on the body, or even to bind to a receptor that has not been discovered yet.

Another theory is that CBD can address clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD), which is the idea that low levels of endocannabinoids can contribute to the development of certain medical or mental health conditions. A 2016 review found that CECD may explain why some people develop conditions that don’t have a clear underlying cause, like migraines, fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome.

While the science is still developing on how CBD affects the ECS, we do know that it can help to address the symptoms of a number of conditions, including pain and inflammation, anxiety and depression, acne, seizures, high blood pressure, and substance abuse disorder. If you have one of these conditions or another medical or mental health issue, be sure to check with your doctor about the possible benefits of CBD and whether it may interact with any of your medications.

How Will CBD Oil Make Me Feel?

CBD oil affects people in different ways. In particular, the serving size of CBD that you take and the way that you take it can change the way that it makes you feel.

Generally, if you take too little CBD oil, you may not feel anything at all. However, if you take a more appropriate serving size, then you may feel relaxed and calm. Some people who use CBD oil describe feeling like their stress levels have dropped when they take it.

While CBD may help you go to sleep, it won’t make you feel drowsy. CBD oil can help with insomnia, but it doesn’t do so by sedating you. Instead, it may address the root causes of your sleeplessness, like anxiety and pain.

By interacting with the ECS system in our bodies, CBD may help us maintain a state of homeostasis or balance. As a result, we may feel better overall without being able to pinpoint exactly how it makes us feel.

Keep in mind that CBD oil tends to have a slow and subtle effect. You may not notice a change right away, unlike the experience you may have taking prescription medications or even using marijuana. Over time, you may start to notice that you feel more calm, or that your health and wellness is improving overall.

So CBD Won’t Make Me Feel High?

CBD oil will not make you feel high or stoned. While CBD is produced from the same family of plants as marijuana (cannabis), by law, it can contain no more than 0.3% THC in the United States. By contrast, marijuana products may contain up to 30% THC.

CBD is not psychoactive, so it will not interact with your body in the same way that THC does to produce a feeling of intoxication. While taking a larger serving size of CBD may make you feel uplifted or give you a sense of wellbeing, you will not feel high because the level of THC is so low in CBD oil made from industrial hemp grown in the United States.

If you are concerned about feeling high when taking CBD oil, you can also choose to purchase a 0% THC product. Make sure to purchase a product that has been independently tested by a third party laboratory so that you can verify the quality and contents of the oil that you choose.
