Vape Basics

Vaping For The Fastest Results?

CBD is changing is becoming a very popular health supplement that is changing many people’s lives with a variety of chronic conditions. Almost as varied as the reasons people use CBD oil, are the ways it can be taken. However, vaping CBD oil is one of the most popular ways people choose to take it. For many of us vaping CBD is a bit overwhelming. Sometimes the act itself feels a bit like smoking, especially for those of us who do not or have never smoked. It is important to make the distinction right away. Vaping CBD is not the same as smoking or vaping nicotine. The benefits of vaping CBD can be life changing for some people. There are many instances where those struggling with different conditions like anxiety, seizures, chronic pain are not able to wait 30 minutes for an edible like a gummy or a mint to take effect. CBD e-liquid or vape oil, which is derived from cannabis though it lacks the components of marijuana that gives users a “high”, is used by people as a quick and health conscious solution to difficult and chronic conditions. So let’s talk e-liquid/vape.

What Does It Mean to Vape CBD?

Vaping describes the process of heating CBD oil or CBD e-liquid to the point where it becomes a vapor (typically using a battery-operated vaporizer), which is then inhaled.  The user usually inhales 1 to 3 times (this is not like vaping nicotine where the user is continuously inhaling the nicotine for the desired effect). The reason this provides the fastest results, is that the CBD is absorbed through your lungs, directly into your bloodstream. As a result, you begin to feel the effects of the oil almost immediately (generally no more than 15 minutes.)

Comparing Vape & Other Methods

When comparing this to other forms of taking CBD oil there is a huge difference, especially for those struggling with some serious chronic issues.

  • Eating CBD in edible forms: capsules, gummies, chocolate, gum, mints and drinking requires the body to go through digestion before it can absorb the oil. This can take anywhere between 20 minutes, and a full hour depending on metabolism,  stomach content,  and other factors. koi cbd tropical gummies
  • Sublingually: by spraying or dropping directly under the tongue.  This method is quick but still outside of the 5 to 10 minute expectation one gets from vaping. It is important to note that taking CBD internally whether by tincture or capsule is a great long-term effect but it can take time for this to work and for our bodies to utilize the CBD.  We tell people one should give this method at least two weeks to begin to see long-term changes in symptoms. Consistency and a daily regimen of taking CBD can help to alleviate long-term symptoms and conditions but the best CBD is the one you take every day!
  • Topicals: Salves, lotions, oils and patches put directly on the skin is a quick method as well but can take just as long as eating/ingesting CBD, if not longer, depending on Endoca Hemp Salve location, the user’s skin health, the amount used, and other factors. Topicals are amazing in treating a specific location and can be very useful when targeting skin issues, specific pain, burns, acne, etc.  As a general rule, they are much shorter acting – lasting 2 to 4 hours.

More CBD With Vaping?

While quicker absorption is perhaps the best reason to vape CBD oil rather than taking it another way, it’s not the only reason people have turned to vaporizers. The term called bio availability is one of the key reasons.  What does this mean?  Bioavailability means the amount of absorption and rate/time it takes for the CBD to reach the bloodstream. When you put CBD oil into your body, not all of it will reach your bloodstream and actually affect you. For example, the bioavailability of eating CBD oil is roughly 15 percent. This means that when you eat it, only about 15 percent of the CBD oil that you put into your body will reach your bloodstream.

The reason eating CBD oil has such a low return when eaten, is that it has to go through so many of your body’s filtration systems (namely your gut and your liver). These systems work to screen out the CBD before it can affect you. In order to get the effects you want orally you’re not only waiting longer, but you also need to take more of the oil than you otherwise might.

In contrast, when vaping CBD oil the bioavailability is between  35% and 50%.  When you inhale the vapor, it goes straight to your lungs, and from your lungs into your bloodstream. It’s the difference between taking a highway that goes straight from point A to point B, and going through a lot of stop-and-go traffic along the back roads. You’ll still reach your destination, eventually, but when you go directly you use a lot less fuel to get there, and you get there a lot faster than if you’d taken the more roundabout route.

Health Risks and Side Effects

A small percentage of users are allergic or later develop allergies to some of the chemicals and materials used in vapes. The two main ingredients that are being heavily discussed when referring to e-liquids are propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. Users with sensitivities to propylene glycol may notice sinus irritation, nausea or a headache upon use. Individuals with more severe allergies can break out in hives, develop swelling or have difficulty breathing. Lucky for us, this chemical is so ubiquitous in our everyday lives that it would be nearly impossible to not realize you have an allergy to one of them before you started vaping. It’s found in cosmetics, hair products, food, drinks, cigarettes, medicine and many more products and is recognized as generally safe by the FDA. The other ingredient referenced is vegetable glycerin.  Allergies to vegetable glycerin are very rare and are more likely caused by an allergy to the plant oil the vegetable glycerin was derived from. A third common ingredient is MCT or coconut oil, which is becoming really prevalent in many food supplements and as as a supplement in and of itself.

Getting Started

If you are new to the e-liquid(vape) world a great place to start would be our Select disposable e-liquid pen.  It is offered in three flavors…Lemon, Spearmint and Lavender and it allows you to try vaping without committing to purchasing and learning about all of the equipment necessary. It is simple and all you do is open the package and inhale!

Both are reasonable prices and easy to use but you will need to purchase e-liquid with the pen and the e-liquid will need to be added to the device.

Our Aging Pets and CBD

Aging Pets and CBD

By Cara Oorbeck,  Green Wellness Life Operations Guru

My dog is getting old!

If you are anything like me as a pet owner, the onset of age in our pets causes worry and sadness.  We all know our pets do not live as long as we do but it is disheartening to see a formerly happy, active, and playful dog want to stay on his bed all day or watch him suffer in pain. Old age and the arthritis that often comes with it is a progressive, debilitating condition that is very common in senior pets, those over age 6-7 years. Larger dogs are most prone to health problems related to arthritis. What animal owners see when their pets begin to suffer from arthritis is an expression of pain, irritability and depression, limping or favoring a leg or paw, trouble getting up and down stairs or into cars, and less interest in walking, playing, or usual activities.

Vets have a number of treatment options to treat arthritis and the associated pain and anxiety. These include medications similar to the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications humans also take for arthritis, though formulated specifically for dogs. These medications do help, but the degree they can control pain and debility is limited. Vets can also recommend orthopedic devices, such as raised food and water bowls or a higher bed. These treatments are designed to ease pain and reduce inflammation, but they do not stop the progression of the disease. Other supplements are recommended by vets to improve the inflammatory nature of arthritis, such as omega fatty acids and glucosamine chondroitin.  However many of these options fall short as our pets age!

Can CBD Help Our Aging Pet?

Some research regarding CBD and our aging dog was published by Cornell University, suggesting that CBD can help control pain and the associated anxiety in senior pets with arthritis, as well as maintain and improve mobility. The groundbreaking study looked at the way CBD in various preparations is absorbed in the dog’s body, and the various pharmacology-related issues such as half-life, blood levels, and first-pass metabolism. These pharmacokinetic parameters were necessary so the study could be sure the dogs were getting CBD in a usable form, and that it was staying in the blood stream long enough for a clinical effect to be observed.  The study was a double blind crossover model, which means the dogs were randomly chosen to get either the CBD preparation or a placebo for a number of weeks, and then the groups were switched, so each dog had both time with a placebo and time with the CBD. Results were evaluated by both owner’s reports of pain, activity, and behavior, and objective measurements in the vet clinic, such as gait analysis and the amount of pressure dogs were willing to put on a painful leg measure by a pressure plate.

While there have been clinical impressions by vets and anecdotal reports by dog owners for some time suggesting that CBD in dogs can improve symptoms of pain, inflammation, and anxiety, this was the first scientific study done using rigorous criteria evaluating CBD in dogs. The results were statistically significant for improved movement and decreased pain, both signs that the progressive, inflammatory nature of arthritis was improved by the CBD supplement.

How do I get my pet to take it?

Some of our pets are picky and getting them to take the CBD is challenging. Researchers tried a number of different delivery models and formulations and found that an oil carrier such as olive oil helped the CBD to be absorbed by the dogs better. Pet tinctures have carrier oils making the bioavailability of the CBD more effective in our pets.  Some effective tinctures have flavorings like peanut butter or bacon. There are also treats with CBD in them. It is important that pets take CBD daily in order for it to be effective.

aging pets and cbd products

How much do I give?

Knowing how much to give your dog is challenging. The vets in the Cornell study found that there is a narrow window in which the CBD is effective. Not enough, and the supplement doesn’t work. Too much, and the kidneys get rid of the extra as waste. Giving more doesn’t always seem to be more effective. This compound works by bringing the system back into balance. It only corrects back to normal. Giving more doesn’t improve effectiveness. Following the rule of 1 to 5 mg for every 10 pounds will help guide you.  Start small and increase according to symptom reduction in your pet.

Other uses for CBD in dogs?

CBD has been used by vets to treat dogs with various seizure disorders, and research being conducted at Colorado State University has shown that CBD is effective as an adjunct to standard medical treatments. This is important research, as standard medical therapy for seizure disorders is not as effective as hoped, and these dogs suffer a poor quality of life. Clinical impressions by vets and anecdotal reports by pet owners have also suggested CBD can be useful for anxiety and other types of pain, including pain from cancer. Research studies are being planned to study the effectiveness, serving size, and formulations of CBD to treat anxiety and pain in dogs.

How is research being funded?

While we are seeing the first good scientific studies looking at CBD in pets, and clinical impressions and anecdotal reports have suggested a use for CBD in dogs and cats with cancer pain and anxiety, the difficulties in getting this research approved and funded are significant. There is a discrepancy between federal and state law regarding hemp farming and processing; in addition, how the CBD is classified is the subject of significant confusion. Most federal funding for pet research into uses for CBD is limited, and state universities have limited ability to develop scientifically rigorous studies without support. But market pressures, and pressures from both vets working in the field and pet owners may help encourage more research into the best formulations, serving sizes, and uses for CBD in dogs.

Picky Pups; CBD and our dogs

October 12th, 2018 by Brandy Palmer

Picky Pups

This is Molly my Great Dane. She is 3 years old and she is a Picky Pup. When I started working at Green Wellness Life, I quickly became aware of the health benefits CBD can have for our pets, both dogs and cats. CBD can neutralize health issues for our dogs in the same way that it can for humans. Anxiety and inflammation are the two that we hear most often, but there are lots of other benefits as well, especially for our aging furry companions (or non-furry companions like Brandy’s sphynx cats!)

How does CBD work in our Pets

When I learned that CBD works in our animals the same way it does humans, I decided to begin giving it to my pets.  That is right all 6 of my animals, three dogs and three cats (I am an animal lover and rescuer). It is amazing to me that both dogs and cats have an endocannabinoid system that is almost identical to that of humans.  The Endocannabinoid system works the same way in our pets as it does in our body. It consists of a system of neurotransmitters that works to balance and maintain normal functions in the body. CBD works to manage the receptors in the central nervous system and helps to balance out symptoms that our pets are experiencing, bringing our furry friends back to normal in no time.

Make Room for Something New by Cara Oorbeck!

September 14th, 2018 by Cara Oorbeck

Make Room

By Cara Oorbeck …Green Wellness Life Operations Guru

Summer is officially over in our house and so is our laid-back lifestyle. Or should I say my daughters’ laid-back lifestyle.  School started and we are making room in our life for MORE! More activities, more responsibilities, more obligations, and more stress.  Whew.  The other addition to our life is more routine. More routine and less freedom seems to help our family in making healthier decisions. Not only are we adding busyness to our life; but we are also adding some things that will help us to be more healthy. This is where Green Wellness Life is helping us! I am new around here…and definitely new to CBD.  I have been on staff a couple of months and I am learning and trying CBD in many forms for the first time. With that being said, I am excited about the health benefits my family and I are seeing!

Adding Something New…

These products are really impacting how we feel, how our skin looks and much more. One of these products is a full spectrum CBD tincture to my daily regimen.  I am trying Plus CBD 500 mg peppermint tincture. At first I did not think it was making a difference. I was Convinced (capital C) it was not doing anything. I took this product for over a month and then I stopped taking it for several days. It was at this point when I realized it had changed how I was feeling. My old shoulder injury wasn’t aching all day long. My knees were not as sore every day and I was sleeping more soundly most nights. In fact, I was able to stop taking my nightly sleep prescription medications completely.   I know that CBD affects people differently…our bodies all react differently and so not everyone will experience the same things I do with CBD but for me it has been really exciting.

It Takes Time…

Seeing the benefits of CBD takes time. The change for me was not immediate and it was not drastic. It started to slowly impact me in a very positive way. If you’re not taking CBD daily this may be something you want to think about making room for. In what ways are you getting your CBD daily? Some of us take CBD every day for its daily benefits including combatting pain, alleviating inflammation, reducing anxiety, mood stabilization, regulating sleep patterns, ADHD/mind clarity, and balancing the different branches of our immune system.  If you want more info on the different ways CBD can affect different conditions, take a peek at projectcbd.org.  While they are medical marijuana proponents (versus hemp), they have a boatload of great research on CBD.

So Many Benefits…

CBD has so many benefits and can add to our lives and our health. Why not give it a try?! If taking a tincture (liquid oil taken under your tongue) or a daily cbd capsules seems overwhelming, don’t hesitate to call us in the office or chat with us online.  We love to walk with you and explore new options for your lifestyle and your specific needs.

I am so excited to share more of the products I have been adding to my life this month as we discuss making room!  They are making a real difference to us!  Check in and see all the cool things we are talking about.  You may decide to add a little something cool yourself.

Please feel free to comment and ask about a specific product and we’ll try to talk about your needs and questions in our blogs!

Make Room for Something New!

September 7th, 2018 by Emma Tuthill

something new

At Green Wellness Life, we’re about much more than just the benefits of CBD. Our goal is to help you live well in a holistic way. That’s why this week we’re focusing on helping you try something new on your path toward more natural living – and we’re offering you a discount to get started! From September 7 through September 14, 2018, you can use the coupon code “Natural9” for nine percent off your order!

Start Where You Are

The MindBodyGreen wellness blog recommends starting with a realistic, personal assessment of your health. Without judgment, take the time to really feel what it feels like to be in your body and listen to what it needs. Meditation can be a great way to do this! Scan your body from head to toe to see what feels great and healthy and what could use some work or healing. The same article gives some great instruction on focused breathing to find that connection with yourself if you’ve never tried meditation before. Knowing what you need is the first step in searching for what can help. It’s important to start this process through the lens of kindness toward yourself, not viewing your health as a problem to be solved, but rather loving your whole person and wanting to nourish and care for it!

Knowledge is Power

Educate yourself! Separate fact from fiction before you incorporate new things – or instead remove old, unwanted elements – into your life. That’s something we value to a great extent at Green Wellness Life, which is why all of our products are lab tested, and we’re always here to answer any question or concern you have. No question is too small or too silly, and if we don’t know the answer already, we’ll take the time to discover it for you!

We’re also committed to transparency in making all of our lab results available upon request and ensuring that our products are described and labeled clearly and accurately. We want you to have to do the least amount of work to understand and trust what you’re purchasing. You’re the reason we’re here, so we’re here for you!

Swap Out Your Skincare Products

When we think about incorporating more natural options in our lives, we correctly identify food and household chemicals as key items to replace. Our food sustains our lives, so it’s important to eat nutritious food to live to our best and fullest extent. Household chemicals are just that – chemicals, which present a tradeoff between cleaning harmful bacteria and potentially harmful ingredients in the products themselves. However, our skin absorbs so much of what we put on it, and many of these products stay there all day. That’s why skincare is often a great place to start if you’re looking to take small, impactful steps toward a more natural way of living.

We’re proud to offer a four-step skincare set from Abinoid Botanicals, which includes a cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer. This set is not only free from harmful dyes or fragrances, but it will actually benefit your skin throughout the day with CBD, gentle oils and herbs, and other natural ingredients! The newest member of this set, the Abinoid Botanicals CBD Face & Body Moisturizer, is an all-over product, to nourish you from head to toe!

__________

If you’re looking to incorporate CBD into your path toward natural living in any way, make sure you use this week’s coupon code to get started at a discount! The coupon code “Natural9” is good for nine percent off your total order, and the offer is good from September 7 to September 14, 2018.

 

Note: Always consult a medical doctor before modifying your diet or using any new product. As with all products on Green Wellness Life, this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.These statements have not been evaluated by the food and drug administration (FDA).


De-Stress with CBD this School Season

August 31st, 2018 by Emma Tuthill

de-stress with cbdIt’s that time of year again: back-to-school season! Whether you’re a student yourself – or a teacher! – or you have children heading back to school, it can be a stressful time. This week we’re featuring a few products to help you de-stress and focus as you get settled into the school year.

Green Roads Coffee & Tea

With these new, infused products, you can now start and end your day with the benefits of CBD! The Gourmet CBD Coffee is a unique way to incorporate CBD into your diet while getting a boost of caffeine and focus in your busy schedule. If you follow the recommended serving size, you will end up with just over 15 mg CBD per pot.

If you’d rather try CBD to help you unwind at the end of the day, consider the Chamomile CBD Tea instead! Chamomile tea is already known for helping you relax, unwind, and de-stress at the end of the day. These pre-packaged tea bags are easy to prepare, and a great way to give CBD a try without changing your daily routine.

Select CBD Tinctures & E-liquid Pens

If you’re not a fan of tea, another way to de-stress is to try a tincture with additional relaxing effects. The Select CBD Lavender Tincture even has chamomile in it, not to mention lavender essential oil, like the flavor description suggests! The Select CBD brand is flavored with essential oils and other natural herbs, meaning that their products don’t just taste great, but they gain additional benefits from the flavoring ingredients. It’s a win-win scenario! Select CBD also offers a Lavender E-liquid Pen for an additional way to relax.

Luckily, Select CBD also has products that can help you focus, too! Peppermint and spearmint are both flavors and scents known for their energizing effects, which can be a great way to wake up your brain when you’ve hit that mid-day slump. A Peppermint Tincture or a Spearmint E-liquid Pen might be the right option for you if you’re looking for focus and clarity, rather than just relaxation.

If you want to combine the benefits of a tincture and e-liquid pen, we also offer discounted sets with the flavors of your choice. Mix and match the flavors you enjoy or the benefits you’re looking for!

MedCBDX Mints & Panacea F.A.S.T Tablets

Another hallmark of the busy school season is having very little time for much-needed self care. That’s why we offer fast-acting products that help you start seeing the benefits of CBD right away. Products like MedCBDX’s mints  and Panacea’s F.A.S.T Tablets are more bio available than a traditional capsule. That’s just a fancy way of saying that your body can more quickly and easily absorb the cannabinoids because absorption starts right in the buccal cavity of your mouth. Both have a light, enjoyable flavor and can easily just be popped into your mouth like a traditional breath mint. No muss, no fuss, and all the benefits of CBD in a quick and easy option for your busy day!

__________

Good luck to all students and teachers out there.
We wish you the best of luck for the upcoming school year!

Spoil Your Pet (And Yourself) on National Dog Day!

August 24th, 2018 by Emma Tuthill

national dog day

To celebrate National Dog Day this Sunday, August 26, 2018, we have a special treat for both you and your best friend! Just for this week, our People & Pets kits are an additional $5 off their already discounted price as a set. We offer these joint sets in some of our favorite brands – Tasty Hemp Oil and Select CBD.

Check them out by clicking on the photos below!

tasty drops people pets select people pets kit

If you’re looking to really celebrate National Dog Day, here are just a few great ways – besides treating your pet to the benefits of CBD – from the official National Dog Day website itself!

Adopt a Four-Legged Friend

There are so many pets in need in shelters all around the country waiting for their forever home. In fact, over 3 million dogs enter the shelter system each year. Luckily, many of these are adopted, but not all, meaning that millions of animals remain in shelters. If you’re not able to adopt another animal into your family, that doesn’t mean you can’t help! Support your local animal shelter with donations of money or supplies – every little bit helps. Having more resources also means that shelters can spend more of their time looking for that perfect home for every animal in need.

Take and Share Photos of Your Doggo

According to an article in The Guardian, dogs have begun gaining on cats as the most popular pets on the internet. Help maintain that trend by posting photos of your own canine companion! Some dogs even have their own social media pages to track their hilarious and adorable daily antics. Think your dog is social-media worthy? Start a profile of their own! Who knows if they’ll go viral, but it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll have fun putting your pet in the spotlight they deserve.

Tell Your Representatives What Animals Mean to You

We sometimes forget that legal protections for animals aren’t set in stone; legislators need to know that this is an issue their constituents care about for them to make it a priority in their tenure! Typically, animal cruelty cases don’t make the news unless they are extremely heinous, but unfortunately animal abuses happen on many levels in our own communities. As pet lovers, we know that there’s enough room in our hearts to not only care about the ones close to us, but animals all around the country. If this is a cause you’re passionate about, the Animal Legal Defense Fund has some great tips for reaching out to your legislators to help them understand the importance of this issue.

Pet-Proof Your Home

There’s never a bad time to make sure that your home is as safe as it can be for your pets. Because we’re used to viewing our living space on our level, we often forget about hazards that are closer to the ground or things that may be safe for humans, but not for pets. These items can include anything from common house plants to buttons and strings on clothing in the dirty laundry. American Humane has a thorough list to help you keep your home safe and healthy for everyone that lives there – including both dogs and cats!

Have a Play Date with Your Pet!

This one is simple and doesn’t have to cost a thing. Just spend time with your dog! Cuddles and playtime are great for the overall mental and physical health of both people and pets. If you’re feeling generous, you can even splurge on a special toy for your dog. If that’s not something that fits in the budget, just spending time with your pet will remind them how much they’re loved!


Why Choose a Hemp-Derived CBD Tincture?

August 16th, 2018 by Emma Tuthill

Our goal at Green Wellness Life is in our name – helping you live well in a holistic way. We believe that CBD can be a helpful part of this process, helping to bring your body back into balance.

One of the things that makes us unique is that we’re not a brand like most other businesses that sell CBD. Instead, we carry several of the best brands in the industry! We select the products we carry carefully. Everything we carry has been lab tested and sourced in a federally-legal way from industrial hemp. Having a variety of great brands to choose from also means getting to choose from a multitude of ways to incorporate CBD into your daily routine – from capsules to skincare products to e-liquids for vaping. You can even treat your pet to the benefits of CBD with supplements formulated specifically for them!

The Top Three Benefits of CBD Tinctures

Because we offer so many great products, we’re also committed to educating our customers, helping you find the product that works the best for you and your unique endocannabinoid system. Today, we’re focusing on one of our most popular types of products: CBD tinctures.

Fast Absorption

If you already incorporate dietary supplements into your life, you may be used to taking them in capsule or softgel form. While a convenient option, digestion of capsules can slow down their efficacy. That’s where tinctures come in. As a liquid supplement, tinctures have the flexibility to speed up that process, helping the CBD absorb more quickly. Typically, tinctures should be held under the tongue for around 30 seconds, so absorption starts right in the buccal cavity, before swallowing the supplement and going about your day. To make this process simple and easy, our tinctures include a dropper applicator to easily drop the recommended serving size directly under your tongue!

Simple Ingredients

cbd tincture natural ingredients

At Green Wellness Life, we’re whole plant advocates. We believe that providing you with the best products available means options that include the least amount of processing and fewest added ingredients. Our raw oil extracts are the closest option to the hemp plant itself; however, this type of product can be intimidating for most CBD consumers.

Tinctures are the next best option if you’re looking to stay close to the raw extract, but need something that’s a little easier to take! Most tinctures include a CBD extract in a base oil that makes it easy to consume and is gentle on your digestive system, too. Typically, the base oils in tinctures are a fractionated MCT coconut oil, like Charlotte’s Web tinctures we carry – one of the best known brands in the CBD industry! Others stick to the basics, using hemp oil as the base for the hemp-derived CBD. We carry a great option if you’re looking for this most natural, raw kind of tincture – Endoca.

Great Flavor Options

If you want the benefits of a tincture but aren’t interested in the earthy, grassy flavor that comes with unflavored tinctures, you’re in luck. Another aspect of the flexibility of tinctures is their ability to be mixed with a variety of flavor options. Tasty Hemp Oil includes a raw base with safe, food-grade flavoring to make the supplement enjoyable to take.

Even beyond being a tasty way to consume CBD, the flavor profile in some tinctures can actually be beneficial, too! Take Select CBD, for example. This line of CBD tinctures is flavored with essential oils, which have benefits in their own rights, like turmeric in the Lemon Ginger drops or lavender in the Lavender drops.

__________

These are just a few of the reasons that CBD tinctures are a great choice for everyone looking to try CBD – from beginners to those familiar with CBD and its benefits. At Green Wellness Life, we’re happy to offer tinctures in a variety of concentrations, ingredients, and price points.

To make incorporating CBD into your lifestyle even more affordable, we regularly offer discounts and promotions on our weekly blog, in addition to our Green Rewards Program! Members of our Green Rewards Program earn one point for every one dollar spent, which turns back into discounts off your future orders. Our system automatically tracks your points as long as you’re logged in, and you can use them to reap big rewards in our store!

We’re proud of the CBD we carry and the discounts we offer to make these brands affordable to everyone. One of our biggest points of pride, however, is our customer service. We’d love to hear from you, and no question or concern is too small! You can reach us at 888-772-7875 or support@greenwellnesslife.com to learn more about what we have to offer.
