Safe CBD Sources

Where do you get your CBD?

The CBD market is colossal, and is just growing larger every day. With this growth, there are more and more vendors to choose from. So how do you know what is safe? Hopefully, by the end of this blog you’ll be able to make more informed decisions about where you buy your safe CBD and what to look for when you go to purchase your Safe CBD online!

Amazon shopping?

I get it. I love Amazon, too. Cheap books, clothing, random household items, and two day delivery is pretty ideal. It seems that just about everything you could want or need is sold on Amazon these days, and is covered with a nifty return guarantee. So why wouldn’t you want to purchase your CBD on Amazon? If you buy everything else there (or just a lot), what could be the harm of purchasing your supplements there, too?

Unfortunately, Amazon is not the ideal site on which to purchase your safe CBD. But why is this? Read the rest of this entry »

Managing Pain

Are you living in pain?

We at Green Wellness Life are aware that a lot of our customers (and a lot of people in general!) live with daily pain. We also know how isolating it can be to be in a room full of people living their lives without having to constantly manage their pain levels. One of our staff members, Hannah Laing, is 19 years old.  She was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at 15 and Fibromyalgia at 18. The following interview is an attempt to offer insight into how Hannah and many others function while living in pain.

Interview

Quinton: So Hannah, tell us a little about the pain that you deal with.

Hannah: Because I suffer from Fibromyalgia, my pain often comes in flairs. Some days I’ll wake up a little stiff, but it’s still manageable. Other days I’ll wake up hurting and throw up. Those are the days that I can’t (and don’t even want to) work up the energy to get out of bed. That’s how bad the pain can be. I find that, sometimes, my body just shuts down and I’ll sleep for twenty to thirty hours without being able to keep my eyes open, no matter how hard I try. As you can imagine, having to sleep a day away every once in a while makes being a young human extremely difficult. What I wasn’t prepared for was the mental aspect of living with pain. I thought I was going crazy; I’m too young to be this uncomfortable in my own body and doctors rarely took my concerns seriously because I looked so healthy and was young!

Q: I can’t imagine how difficult that is. Was it always this bad? Read the rest of this entry »


Can CBD Help Pet Allergies? — August 2, 2019

Dog's Allergies

Does your pet have allergies?

Once again, it’s time to talk about our favorite family members: our pets. A lot of people don’t know this (and those who do, wish that they didn’t), but dogs and cats can have allergies as well. Just like humans, they can be sensitive to certain allergens in the air (such as pollen or dust); and, like their masters, they can lose out on a lot of life by constantly being burdened by these allergies.

How do pets display allergies?

Allergies in animals work very similar to allergies in humans; symptoms can include itchiness, runny noses, red or inflamed eyes, and sneezing. However, despite these similarities, animals will often have allergy symptoms manifest themselves in the pet’s skin. This is due to the high prevalence of “mast cells” (a type of white blood cell) in the pet’s skin. Normally, these cells help combat germs and infection, but they can become overwhelmed by allergens at times.

How do I know if my pet has allergies?

Can CBD Help Relieve Stress? — July, 26 2019

Relieve Stress

QuintonBy Op-Ed Blogger Quinton Charles

Published July 26, 2019

Are you stressed or anxious?

Stress is common. Really common. All said, around 40 million Americans suffer from some sort of anxiety [1]. That’s a big number, and could very well include you. Even more concerning is the possibility that chronic stress may have irreversible impacts on the brain [2], permanently altering its chemistry. It can also lead to behavioral changes like smoking, drinking excessively, eating too much or too little, and loss of sleep – all of which negatively impact your quality of life.

Now I’m stressed about stress

I get it. You try not to be stressed, but this just leads you to be stressed about your stress. I’ve felt this more times than I would like to admit. So what are the ways out of this? Well, most solutions are going to take some sort of investment, whether that be time, money, or sacrificing something in your life that causes you stress.

What are my options?

Synthetic

Published July 18, 2019

There Are Different Types of CBD?

I’m sure that by now you have run into different ingredient listings on your CBD. These names, like “Isolate,” and “Full Spectrum,” and maybe even “Synthetic,” could have made complete sense to you, or could have been no more than words. Maybe you didn’t even notice them. My job in these next few sections is to help you to understand what those words mean when they are on your CBD, and maybe help you make some informed decisions about your next purchases. Ready to dive in? Let’s go!
