Sephora Embarks On Largest CBD Skincare Launch Yet With Saint Jane

As a new decade begins, the beauty industry’s infatuation with cannabis continues. CBD as a skincare ingredient has proved it’s much more than just the next trend thanks to conscious, clean beauty companies like Saint Jane, which on January 10, will debut in 281 Sephora stores in 22 states across America.

It’s the largest CBD launch the LVMH-owned multinational chain of beauty boutiques has ever supported following its foray into cannabis skincare—first introducing Lord Jones online and in-stores (across 171 locations comparatively) in 2018. Saint Jane is also one of Sephora’s fastest success stories ever, with its best-selling Luxury Beauty Serum making a dot-com debut just four months after the brand launched.

Earning Sephora’s support was a full-circle moment for founder and CEO Casey Georgeson. While studying for her MBA at Stanford University she begged for an unpaid internship at the company’s North America headquarters in San Francisco to pursue her passion for beauty products. Unlike Sephora’s standard high school- and undergraduate-level interns, Georgeson boasted previous career experience as a producer at CNN and the creative force behind Cupcake Vineyards for The Wine Group, one of the largest wine companies in the world.

Upon graduation, she was swiftly hired by the beauty brand incubator Kendo to lead its partnership division where she led the development for designer brands like Marc Jacobs, Kat von D, and Disney for Sephora. But even the beauty industry veteran thought pitching her own product was a long shot.

“Even with my background, to be totally honest, I thought, ‘There is no way Sephora is going to bring this on,’” Georgeson shared via phone. “We’re not even a brand yet. We have 100 followers on Instagram. They’re just going to look at this as a favor and tell me, ‘Okay Casey, this is a cute little idea you have here. Don’t call us, we’ll call you.’”

Georgeson got an email response from Sephora’s vice president of skincare merchandising, Cindy Deily, within 15 minutes after she received the Luxury Beauty Serum sample at her office. The rest is CBD skincare history.

Saint Jane was born on Jan. 28, 2019 and as it approaches its one year anniversary, the brand has already achieved what most beauty companies aim for in a lifetime. Clean beauty retailer Credo was the first outside stockist with Sephora, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Space NK soon following suit.

The patron saint of healing herself was born on the same date in the 1500s and is who Georgeson wanted to honor through her still 100% self-funded company.

“Saint Jane was an actual person—anointed into sainthood for healing people—specifically healing women that French society shunned…the elderly, the sickly, or unwed mothers,” explained Georgeson. “And like this pioneering feminist, we have a healing-centric approach to beauty. It has a double meaning for the innocent side of ‘Mary Jane,’ too, because I always wanted CBD to be the hero ingredient.”

Georgeson views and treats CBD as a vitamin and classifies it as a skincare superhero ingredient alongside hyaluronic acid and vitamin C and added, “It’s a molecule not a miracle, and depending on what it’s paired with, it works even better. As the [beauty] industry gets more educated on cannabis, people are starting to see it as more of a supplement—a good for you ingredient versus as a psychoactive.”

She personally sources Saint Jane’s hemp from sustainable, female-owned farms and has every batch tested for potency and purity by a third-party lab partner. According to the brand, the Luxury Beauty Serum contains the highest concentration of CBD for a facial serum on the market (and at Sephora) with 500 milligrams in each bottle; the Luxury Body Serum contains 200 milligrams of CBD oil.

More than 20 effective additional botanicals enhance her formula, such as wood oil, prickly pear, sea buckthorn, rosehip, and pomegranate, which when combined, improve radiance, reduce inflammation, detoxify impurities, and soothe the skin.

“We strive to provide clients with the most on-trend and sought-after products,” said Deily. “We saw a strong desire for an assortment of prestige CBD offerings, and Saint Jane has been a pioneer in growing the space. With their goal of bringing CBD to the forefront as an efficacious ingredient in prestige skincare, Saint Jane is passionate about education and category innovation and ingredient exploration and are thrilled to introduce more of our community to this new indie brand.”

As such, Saint Jane will be merchandised in-store on Sephora’s Indie Beauty Wall, a showcase of the most promising up-and-coming, buzz-worthy brands. As part of Saint Jane’s dedication to consumer education, outreach includes a video tutorial, written material, and product samples for Sephora staff.

The Luxury Beauty Serum bottle itself looks and feels luxurious—think thick, matte black glass with a gold-plated brand badge—but it’s what’s inside that warrants the opulent packaging and high price point (the regular size retails for $125). Saint Jane’s new travel size ($38) is exclusive to Sephora and the Luxury Body Serum available online only ($58).

With customer testimonials ranging from regular use resulting in flawless skin to clearing up cystic acne to relieving rosacea pain, Saint Jane has deservedly earned awards from The Zoe Report (Best New Luxury Skincare Product of 2019), O, The Oprah Magazine (Best Body Product), Health (Best Facial Oil), PopSugar (Most Innovative Product), and more. It has also cured chronic skin issues for two top beauty editors at Glamour and Refinery 29.

The accolades and overwhelmingly positive customer reviews are also now validated by an official stamp of approval from medicinal cannabis pioneer Dr. June Chin , who was recently announced as the company’s chief medical advisor in conjunction with the Sephora expansion. A chronic pain survivor practicing in New York City, Chin holds multiple degrees in nutrition and osteopathic medicine. Her personal experience led to the discovery of CBD, which she incorporates into her integrative approach to overall patient care and treating diseases including epilepsy, cancer, and autism.

“Saint Jane is the most innovative CBD beauty company in the U.S., with an impressive team developing cutting-edge products,” said Chin, a noted expert in the space whose been featured on the “Today Show,” in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and elsewhere. “Since its inception, Saint Jane has introduced important transparency to the world of CBD beauty products. In this strategic role, my focus is to empower consumers to make more confident decisions with accurate and reliable information and to demystify CBD.”

Georgeson added, “In all of my years in beauty, I’ve never seen an ingredient that has this level of potential and performance in the skincare and wellness world.”

During the first quarter 2020, Georgeson plans to add Sephora-specific positions to her small team of 10 (she’s also a mom to three young daughters) to help oversee the day-to-day operations and communication with stores. Saint Jane is also working on releasing additional exclusive products exclusively for Sephora, which underscores her company’s commitment to the retailer—its largest point of distribution. Complementing Saint Jane’s Microdose Lip Gloss collection, a CBD-infused lipstick line will launch later this year.

Finding CBD Merchant Accounts to Sell CBD Products

Ability to sell CBD products.

Having the ability to take payment for the product and service rendered is not easy, far from easy, but this will help straighten out the process and give you a much deeper understanding. We see a lot of news about the banking process “easing” up, but in reality, it’s not yet.

Having an online business or any business for that matter requires payment unless you are just charitable. And in the CBD world, to put it bluntly, it is much, much harder than normal High Risk categories such as the “normal” high risk categories. First off, online sales, is automatically in a tier of its own, makes no difference if it just teddy bears, clothing, and things some would never consider “high risk”, so why is this? Simple. It’s an online transaction and a “not in person” transaction, which leaves the transaction, no matter how innocent it may seem, in a high risk category. In person transactions, you can ask to see ID, be able to visually spot something not right, etc., but online, you have no idea who it is. And banks, well, to them it’s a risk of a higher nature – credit card fraud is largely to blame.

How banks view CBD.

Banks do not like cannabis, plain and simple. Straight to the point of their view on CBD and other related products to Cannabis. They, no matter how much they are worth, just do not like providing assistance with any business selling CBD. And it is simply due to the laws in this country, so much the bank itself.

There is no way around this. So if you own a store front, you might a bit shocked to learn that in the event you want to dip into the worldwide web you WILL be paying more than “in person”. Instead of the 1.75% you might pay now, expect the rates to be from 2.75% to as much as 10% per transaction.

Enter CBD products. There is this large grey area and this is largely in part, even though federally legal. It is frustrating to all involved, even to the big companies as they are paying into this category of “high risk”. But as they are more established, and process much more, the banks available are more attainable and much more willing to negotiate. So don’t think just the smaller companies are the ones that have the hardest of times. But as the expression goes, “Money talks… and…” well, you know the rest.

Listen to others who been through the process.

From experience, I can tell you that most of the time, the bank will need to see that you have inventory on hand (IOH) with respectable lab certificates and wholesale proof of purchases. This is where the “rock stuck in a hard place part” starts. So after establishing the legality of your business, you have to invest in product, then you can start to really play ball. The more stock you have, the more likely they can assist, as they see the stock as a sign of seriousness and profit for them.

Buying a few products just will not cut it, unfortunately, so it is best to buy as much as much as you can first, but remember, you will also need a “live” website, one that is built on a platform that is friendly to the banks software needed on your site. So please, make sure your site is built on something such as WordPress/WooCommerce, Magento, or BigCommerce. Shopify, is slowly easing its way in to the crowd, but it’s still not as processor friendly as the big three mentioned.

Knowledge is power.

Thankfully I knew this portion as I dealt with high risk products prior to CBD, so I already had an idea, and I hope I am conveying that to you now, so later down the road you are not stuck in a costly bind! I am sure there is not too much that is more frustrating than buying $10-25k in product only to find out that your well built site is not compatible with the banks that are willing to take on new business.

Also, I would like to add if you are still with me, that a processor is simply a bank that processes the payment. They are not, however, the bank that the money after processed goes to, that is a Merchant Account. And unfortunately, big banks such as the Chases and TD Banks of the world will not accept process nor “hold” money for CBD or anything hemp related. For this you would need to find a CBD compliant bank. They are out there but there aren’t too many, most of them are branches offs of larger banks, but hold their own liability and charge for such a service, normally a hundred or so a month. the fee is considered a “compliance fee” which basically means, they watch the regulations and make sure your money does not get frozen or get you kicked out, because if that happens, now your processor that you worked so hard to get, will have no where to put the money they processed. Stick with me, it sounds and is, a bit complex.

How to find a bank.

Simply put, they are not put out in the public and have access usually through brokers and other agents, who will research your business, charge a fee for doing so, usually in the neighborhood of $750 – $1500. Once on board, the compliant bank will most likely charge a monthly fee as well, in the neighborhood of $150.  That is $5 a day, regardless if you are selling anything or not; keep that in mind when budgeting. Also say another $5 per month for the processor, so in total that is $10 daily, 7 days a week that you are paying to accept money. So when buying CBD products also keep in mind, when it comes to negotiating price of product, that every single percentage point matters.

There are other ways around this such as off shore, but at the point it gets even more entangled, the prospect of having a bank and processor off shore is not too advantageous. For several reasons, the strongest reason is being the fact, that legalities can prevent you from bringing the money “home” to your personal checking account. But not to fear, as regulations straighten out, this will be easier. But the point is that I want to drive home, is this is the foundation of your business. Even if you only accept e-checks, same thing applies.

I have seen a lot of companies only accept crypto currency and this helps if you are ok with the limitations the crypto currently holds and the fact that crypto itself may be a risk on its own. But I firmly believe if you go the best path possible by obtaining CBD products that are legitimate and trustworthy and stick to oils (most processors do not like CBD flower), it may take a while but you will get in, just prepare for “fee land” as everyone has their hands out, it’s not like opening the teddy bear store or remotely close. As you can, by now, understand I hope.

Proper banking is your company’s foundation.

Once you have these two crucial keys of this CBD equation, you can breathe a bit easier but remember the fees, do not forget them. The banks surely will not, I can assure you that one. If sales are not coming in yet to cover these fees it’s important to reciprocate this to them, let them know what your game plan is and try to convey (as if they do not know) the game plan. This goes a longer way than one may think, usually the bank account manager on the account has a better understanding of the difficulties of selling CBD product and especially online.

Research online and pay close attention.

It is important to research mostly brokers that are in the business of setting you up to be able to accept money for CBD products. It is also important to know the high interest rate is nowhere near enough at the moment to satisfy processors. The very few that are out there and willing to help and take on your business know that they are in the very few and charge a premium for this, so know this upfront will help you and your decisions now and down the road. Some possessors also will impose what is called a “rolling reserve”, contracts that may be costly to get out of, monthly fees for the software, and higher than average “per transaction charges” (example 6% plus $0.75 per transaction). It all adds up to a lot of money for selling a federally legal, non-intoxicating, dare I say “healthy” commodity, such as CBD oils and anything Cannabidiol related. It’s made much easier for those who invest $10 million into perhaps their own line up of CBD products (CBD oil, CBD pain relief salve, CBD flower, CBD skin beauty, CBD anything).

The price of selling CBD

It certainly is not easy, it certainly is not cheap, and this is part of the reason CBD oils and salves and all the other goodies, are at somewhat premium priced. You see it’s not really so much the CBD that is expensive. It is fair to say it is the banking system and regulations imposed by states. CBD is legal, but there is a grey area being that even though industrial hemp is fully, LEGAL of a Federal level, it is being extracting from the CBD flower, and making it into something else in a way. This is costly as well, but I would the process is very little in comparison to the banking process. You can go months without selling anything, but still keeping the coffers happy. But the consolation is that you in the business before the boom, and the boom it is. And no signs of slowing down, but the future projections are based off what we see now, we never know what is coming; simply put selling CBD products online is daunting, not easy, but if you pull through, it is rewarding like any other high risk gamble.

2 Charlotte’s Web CBD Gummies: Calm

For years, Charlotte’s Web has been stating that their CBD gummies are created to assist people with daily stressors. Produced by the Stanley Brothers (Joel, Jesse, Jon, Jordan, Jared, and Josh) in 2012 and based in Boulder, Colorado, the company’s hemp CBD gummies are offered in three variations: Calm, Sleep, and Recovery for after working out. By 2013, Stanley Brothers were features on CNN, 60 Minutes, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and more. I decided to try the “Calm” option for my stressful workdays.

All of Charlotte’s Web CBD Calm Gummies are gluten free. They are also made with their own combination of fruits and veggies, along with dozens of phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. A little L-theanine and lemon balm are mixed in as well.

According to their website, the CBD products sold at Charlotte’s Web are designed to help individuals relax, stay focused without feeling drowsy, and improve regular sleep patterns. The flavors come from real fruit and veggies. I tried the Lemon Lime flavor. They did work, but they certainly are not the best CBD gummies out there. They also taste rather sour.

All of the CBD gummies to help a person stay calm from Charlotte’s Web are made with zero additives and no dyes. Each jar contains 60 gummies with 10 mg of hemp extract, 50 mg of L-theanine, and 75 mg of lemon balm per serving. Two gummies are suggested for each serving, but I often had to ingest more than two or three to feel at peace after a stressful day at work.

Charlotte’s Web markets its CBD gummies to people on the go. Its main focus is consumers with busy lifestyles can use them after exercising, as well as at the office and at bedtime. A user just has to be patient and consistent and positive results will be steady, even if they are a bit slow.

3 PureKana Vegan CBD Gummies

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, the team at PureKana markets their vegan CBD gummies to people looking to manage daily stressors, whether they are at home or in the office. The company that became known for its oil tinctures organically grows its own brand of CBD gummies on Kentucky farms.

Made in the United States and sourced from domestically grown hemp, PureKana relies on its trademarked technology and CO2 extraction procedure to make its own gummies. They come in a wide variety of natural flavors, but nothing stands out as tasting particularly special. The company also states its hemp never contains dangerous or toxic elements, such as chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides.

Supposedly, PureKana’s products work with a person’s Endocannabinoid System to offer mental and physical benefits, like loosening up and feeling free of stress. PureKana markets their gummies to people looking to improve sleep-patterns.

Ensuring product and consumer safety, PureKana works with certified companies and third-party laboratories to test every CBD edible. They are also 100% vegan and completely free of both GMO and THC isolate.

I appreciated how PureKana walks readers through the process of eating CBG gummies, and the treats traveling along the digestive system before being absorbed. I also liked their honesty, admitting that its Vegan CBD Gummies often take a while to become effective. PureKana lives up to industry standards and customer expectations.

You can read details about every CBD edible on their website, where the company boasts about its fabulous affiliations with hemp growers. A visitor can read all about every one of its products for sale. Lab results are also shared on the company website. I even noticed that they market their CBD supplements to senior citizens.

Designed to improve relaxation, a $40 bottle of 20 PureKana Vegan CBD Gummies comes with 25 mg of CBD per piece. Of course, you can increase or decrease your frequency and quantity as needed.

4 Green Roads CBD Gummies

Green Roads is a small family-based business in Florida that was founded by an experienced pharmacist in 2013, Laura Baldwin Fuentes. The pharmacist was trying to help a friend overcome an addiction to opiates, the drugs derived from opium. Today, Green Roads has one mission: to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of every consumer with high quality CBD products, like oil tinctures and edibles.

Today, Green Roads’ is rather popular. In fact, its broad spectrum formulas can be found in more than 10,000 different retail locations across the country. They are non GMO and stem from hemp grown on domestic farms. Green Roads offers a wide variety of products designed to work for almost everyone, including daily dose packs, animal products, and even coffees and teas.

The company boasts about its high standards and breakthrough extraction methods. I also appreciate how a user can readily find product lab sheets online, as well as by scanning a QR code on the packaging. That’s pretty cool. Green Roads also breaks down usage information for each product to make it as straightforward as possible.

However, Green Roads’ proprietary formulations are perhaps too proprietary. The company does not provide specifics about its extraction processes and certifications online, making it hard for users to understand exactly how its products are made. At least every one of Green Roads’ products is tested at a third party lab.

Unfortunately, Green Roads CBD Gummies aren’t made with phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR) hemp oil. Also, consumers can’t read important information about their extraction and formulation processes. The gummies’ lab sheets can be found on the packaging, as well as online.
While they are known for proving quality service, Green Roads is also one of the most expensive brands out there. A $43.95 bottle of 30 Green Roads CBD Gummies only comes with 10 mg of CBD per piece. Ouch.

5 Lord Jones Old-Fashioned CBD Gumdrops

Based in Los Angeles, Lord Jones has been making luxurious CBD products since 2016. Marketing to the rich and famous, Lord Jones Old-Fashioned CBD Gumdrops are supposed to be chic. Okay, but you are paying a bit more for product recognition and packaging.

Old-Fashioned CBD Gumdrops are made to promote a serene sense of well-being. Everything is mixed in little batches containing Ecuadorian dark chocolate, imported natural European fruit flavors, sugar, citric acid, gelatin, and broad spectrum CBD extract derived from top quality hemp.

Developed by a veteran team of experts in the CBD industry, Lord Jones’ gummies are said to help individuals feel calm and cool. Supposedly, they can help a user concentrate for extended periods of time. Of course, they do take a while to kick in.

All the CBD edibles are manufactured here in the U.S. and possess no THC whatsoever. They are also gluten free, as well as tested in labs to ensure customers’ safety. Old-Fashioned CBD Gumdrops also have gelatin, meaning they are not vegan. Not only are they made with sugar cane, a consumer may find small amounts of dairy. After all, the gumdrops are created in a facility that also manufactures products with dairy.

Lord Jones claims it is best to consume the CBD treats within 6 months from the date of purchase. But I noticed they grow hard after 2 or 3 months. It’s only natural for gummies to stiffen up after being exposed to air for too long. In other words, make sure you keep any Old-Fashioned CBD Gumdrops in a sealed bag or airtight container, and stored at room temperature.

Each box of Lord Jones Old-Fashioned CBD Gumdrops costs $45 and only comes with a mere 9 gumdrops, each containing 20 mg of CBD. A whopping $5 a pop is a bit pricey, especially for a product that doesn’t always receive favorable reviews. At least Lord Jones Old-Fashioned CBD Gumdrops are elegantly packaged.

6 Fab CBD Chews

For those of you who want to steer clear of THC in general, Fab CBD Chews has been around since 2018. Despite the company being located in Tampa, Florida, its financial offices are on the other side of the pond in the U.K. They are also small in size in comparison to the leaders of the CBD industry, like Just CBD.

Designed to manage day to day stressors, Fab CBD Chews’ gummies are crafted with CBD isolate. They are also gluten free and non GMO, as well as a smart option for vegans.

What I like about Fab CBD is its simplicity. Not only do they maintain an informative website, it only sells three products, CBD oil, a CBD topical cream, and CBD gummies. Each one is derived from naturally grown hemp. It’s just too bad Fab CBD Chews are only available in one flavor, Fruit, that is said to have an undesirable taste.

Fab CBD Chews website has plenty of photos of supposed real customers, which is refreshing to see. Many other CBD businesses’ websites lack color and personality. At the same time, they don’t skip out on sharing lab reports. In fact, Fab CBD chews uses the same analytics laboratory, ProVerde, as Fab CBD Chews and much bigger companies, such as PureKana.

Those with allergies should beware, as Fab CBD Chews are processed. In fact, they stem from the same building that makes fish gelatin. They are then packaged in the same facility as wheat, coconut, and dairy products.

Meant to work as a post-workout supplement, the gummies from Fab CBD Chews have 25 mg of CBD isolate, come in a 4 oz jar, and supposedly contain 750 mg of CBD total. Of course, without a lab, it’s hard to know how much you are really getting in each piece. They normally cost $59 or more.

7 Premium Jane CBD

Since opening its doors in the summer of 2018 in Los Angeles, Premium Jane CBD has blossomed into a popular brand in the United States. Now centered in Scottsdale, Arizona, Premium Jane’s products, including standard CBD oil tinctures, soft gel CBD capsules, a topical CBD cream, and CBD gummies are created with a THC-free isolate extract.

Premium Jane CBD gummies should be consumed just like any other piece of candy, allowing the CBD to travel through your digestive system before it gets absorbed into your bloodstream. People should start out with either half a gummy or one whole gummy to figure out their ideal serving sizes.

The CBD gummies are created at registered Pilot Research farms in rural Oregon, where they are inspected regularly for purity, as well as for safety. Each crop is selected for its rich amounts of terpenes and cannabinoids in order to give a user the best CBD experience possible before being shipped anywhere in the 50 States.

Everything sold at Premium Jane is extracted from the stalk, stems, leaves and flowers of industrial cannabis. They also make it a point to avoid using any and all dangerous chemicals, including pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers in its products. Meanwhile, a user never has to worry about the psychoactive “high” associated with marijuana. Rather folks simply feel calm and cool.

When it comes to Premium Jane CBD gummies, user feedback is at a minimum, as they have not been around very long. Yet, there are some benefits worth noting shared in reviews all over the web. For starters, the company relies on the reputable ProVerde Labs to make sure their CBD is top of the line and effective in users’ systems.

A person can even go online and check out Premium Jane CBD gummies’ laboratory reports, along with customer feedback. Reviews often mentions the great taste of the edibles. The price of Premium Jane CBD gummies is rather inexpensive. A jar of 30 gummies, 25 mg each, is priced at $55.

8 Sunday Scaries CBD Gummies

Sunday Scaries CBD Gummies are created to help those who are stressed out feel at ease. Staying focused becomes easier, as does sleeping through the night. That is why they are all made with a unique blend of broad spectrum CBD, vitamin D3, and vitamin B12.

The treats are ideal for vegans who crave vitamins. The goal of Sunday Scaries CBD Gummies is to decrease a user’s daily mental, physical, and emotional strains. A consumer can choose between Sunday Scaries’ gelatin based gummies from pure sugarcane and vegan-friendly edibles made from pectin, along with high fructose corn syrup.

Perhaps the greatest benefit, or at least the most fun factor of Sunday Scaries CBD gummies is that they come in a variety of colors, including yellow, orange, green, and a tasty red. They may come with an unpleasant aftertaste, but I know I am not simply enjoying candy for my sweet tooth.

I suggest taking a single Sunday Scaries CBD Gummy bear roughly 45 minutes before heading to bed. If you do not begin to feel drowsy in 30 minutes, simply enjoy a second helping. That should be enough to knock you out for a few hours at a time. If a third is necessary, go ahead. However, I wouldn’t consume any more than three.

Whether you are on the highway or watching television in the evening, you will feel more relaxed. You’ll get better sleep and not be sluggish in the morning. Every bottle of Sunday Scaries CBD Gummies comes with 20 gummies with 10 mg of CBD each. I found them online for $31 to $39 each. Of course, folks can always buy in bulk to save a few bucks. They may not be the most inexpensive edibles on the market, but Sunday Scaries CBD Gummies do help you chill out.

9 CBDfx Gummies

Founded in 2015, Southern California’s CBDfx is one of the most well-established brands for CBD. The brand got its feet wet with CBD Vape products and has since began selling its own brand of CBD gummies derived from hemp plants grown organically in the United States.
The gummies are sweet and chewy. You can go on the web and quickly choose berry flavored CBD treats or special CBD gummies with special ingredients, like turmeric, melatonin and spirulina. None of the gummies are made with corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, or any other destructive chemicals.

CBDfx prides itself on using nothing but natural plant based ingredients for its CBD gummies, as well as vape pens, oil tinctures, and more. They also claim to be the very first brand to create 100% vegan gummies. While the snacks certainly look like appetizing candy, they taste nothing like standard gummy bears. Rather, CBDfx Gummies remind me of green licorice.

CBDfx Gummies are made from organic sugar cane. As a result, the small particles of sugar dance around the inside of the bottle, rather than staying stuck to the gummies. That means a person can expect a little mess to fall on his or her desk or lap every time one is pulled out. Otherwise, CBDfx Gummies are an impressive and effective treat for the mind and body.

Unfortunately, CBDfx doesn’t share any information about who farms their hemp or what procedures they follow. Who knows what practices are being used?

You can now purchase little 8 packs of CBDfx Gummies, as well as 60 pieces with 5 mg of CBD per vegan gummy, 300 mg in total, for approximately $50. The company recommends a dose of one to two CBD gummies a day, meaning a bottle of 60 gummies should last a consumer for one to two months.

10 Highland Pharms Hemp Plus CBD Gummies

Made with all natural ingredients, Highland Pharms Hemp Plus CBD Gummies is the opposite of a pharmaceutical company. Founded in Texas in 2015 and operating a retail location in Olympia, Washington, Highland Pharms uses organic hemp grown on a boutique farm in Colorado.
Highland Pharms Hemp Plus CBD Gummies do not smell good, nor do they taste any better. At least they successfully help people relax and fall asleep.

What Highland Pharms refers to as “Pharmaceutical Grade Hemp” is industrial hemp that has been specifically bred to have high levels of cannabinoids. The non GMO CBD gummies are all natural, with the exception of food dyes and artificial flavorings (Black Carrot Juice Concentrate, Organic Turmeric, and Organic Annatto) in their gummies.

As far as negative factors about Highland Pharms Hemp Plus CBD Gummies, I know buyers are quickly turned off by the name “Pharms” and its label, “pharmaceutical grade.” There is no more information offered to distinguish it from medicine or even industrial hemp. Also, a blogger like me is quickly annoyed at silly typos and partial product descriptions of the business website. It’s not very professional.

All of Highland Pharms’ products are sent off for testing by ProVerde that confirms the gummies’ potency of CBD and other cannabinoids. They also make sure there are zero heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, or microbes.

There is no one standard serving size. While one person may like taking half a piece at a time, another may prefer the mental and physical effects of one or even two CBD snacks.

You can purchase fruit flavored Highland Pharms Hemp Plus CBD Gummies in bottles of 20. You can choose 10 mg gummies for $39.95 or 20 mg edibles for $69.95. The shipping is known to be fast, as well as free. While the price may be a bit high, consumer feedback usually claims Highland Pharms Hemp Plus CBD Gummies are worth the money.

How Should I Pick CBD Gummies?

As a consumer, it is now up to you to pick the best CBD gummies on the market. For any first time user, that’s a task that is easier said than done. You don’t want to spend too much money, but you should also steer clear of any cheap edibles. But there is so much more to consider than merely prices.

When choosing what CBD gummies to buy, you should consider the type of CBD that is used in the ingredients. CBD isolate is pure CBD that has no other cannabidiols whatsoever. This is a fabulous product for anyone who must avoid THC, like a bus driver or schoolteacher who is worried about failing a drug test. Yet, the CBD isolate extraction method takes away many important organic compounds and terpenes. In other words, an individual won’t achieve the same range of mental and physical benefits as normal CBD gummies.

Can I Buy CBD Gummies Legally?

Yes, CBD gummies, as well as CBD oils and vapes, are legal in all 50 States, as long as they come from hemp. Every hemp product contains a THC level of less than 0.3 percent. On the other hand, the THC in marijuana is much stronger and often gives users unwanted euphoric highs. That is why marijuana-derived CBD products are not legal on the federal level. In other words, it is much safer and smarter to buy hemp-derived CBD gummies.

Will CBD Gummies Make Me High?

No, CBD gummies derived from hemp will not make you high, even if it comes from the same plant and offers many of the same wonderful benefits as THC. Sure, both CBD and THC interact with the cannabinoid receptors in users’ brains. However, our reactions to them are not the same. CBD doesn’t have a response on CB1 receptors. In other words, it does not create a euphoric high. In fact, CBD often reduces THC’s influences on the body.

How Much CBD Should You Consume?

If you have never tried CBD gummies before, it is best to start off slowly. Begin with one 5 gm piece. Better yet, you can cut it in half to start with a 2.5 mg gummy. Then you have to do is sit back and relax. It’s worth the wait, as you can enjoy the mental and physical advantages of CBD for approximately 5 hours at a time. If a couple of hours go by and you feel like taking more, go right ahead. It’s not like it’s possible to overdose on CBD gummies. Over time, you can always increase the amount of CBD you take on a regular basis.

Benefits of CBD for Older People

CBD is a product that has gained incredible notoriety in the most recent two years, predominantly due to easing of restrictions on hemp products, thanks to the US Farm Bill of 2018. CBD was given a green light by way of the legalization of hemp crops and products, thanks to this bill. Now it is common to hear of people taking CBD for dementia or CBD for pain. Those who suffer from epilepsy and chronic conditions of many types are using CBD oil.

Still, the fastest-growing segment of our society that is using CBD oil is senior citizens. AS people have come to learn of the benefits of CBD for pain, they’ve also come to realize that it helps with memory as well. CBD is a neuroprotectant which is why it is showing promise for those using CBD for dementia.

Older People Get Relief From Aging Issues When Taking CBD

We all get older. It’s inevitable. It’s also inevitable that some people will experience chronic pain from arthritis and worn-out joints. Some are more prone to these issues, thanks to their genetics. Arthritis can gnarl joints and force hands into positions that no longer give way to perform even the most menial of tasks.

Age takes away the body’s ability to do the things that the young take for granted. Just rolling over and attempting to get out of bed in the morning can be a two or three-attempt-project. Writing your own name can become impossible and the reason that the elderly have very difficult to read handwriting.

As we grow older, our body is bombarded with inflammation which causes arthritis to eat away at our joints. Years of wear and tear take a toll on hips, knees, hands, lower back, and parts of our body that have been injured and healed poorly at some point during our life.

CBD can help to bring relief from these issues as well as improve focus and memory issues. To understand how this happens, it’s important to understand what CBD is, where it comes from, and what it does in the body. Let’s start with the body system that uses cannabinoids – the ECS.

The Endocannabinoid System Helps CBD Ease Your Pain

It’s generally referred to as the ECS and it is a body system that was discovered in the 1990s. We’re still learning about the ECS but we know that it works to maintain homeostasis in the body.

Simply put, it keeps all the systems running smoothly and efficiently. It works as a middle manager, answering to the brain, fielding everything it can handle without involving the brain, and ensuring that everyone is doing their job, in their places, and prioritizing things to ensure that the entire body is functioning top-notch.

If you’ve got a fever, it’s the ECS that kicks in, telling the liver to produce more white blood cells, and gets the body to transport them to where they are needed. The ECS acts as the fire chief, directing the crews where to hook-up trucks, run the hoses, and put the fires out.

When pain is felt, signals are sent to the brain in waves. This is acknowledged and you feel the pain. The ECS is capable of blocking that pain from reaching the brain, by using endocannabinoids to block the pain signals from reaching the brain and reacting to the pain. Therefore, you feel relief.

Endocannabinoids are created within the body and are very similar to phytocannabinoids that we consume in plant matter. There are many plants that contain phytocannabinoids, not just cannabis. Phyto means ‘plant’. CBD is a phytocannabinoid and it is properly called cannabidiol.

Cannabinoids are present in many different types of plants, including some herbs, but CBD is only present in cannabis, namely hemp. Industrialized hemp is where today’s CBD oils are extracted from and marketed as CBD oil and CBD products of all sorts.

When inflammation is present, it is the ECS that tells the body to boost its response, having an anti-inflammatory effect. Cannabinoids boost the ECS into high gear, and that is exactly what happens when you take CBD oil. It can boost the output of the ECS.

CBD molecules flow through the neural pathways, particularly in the brain and the spinal column. As these molecules travel the body, they bind to receptors of the ECS that are located on the outside of some cells.

Lipids are formed from this binding process and continue traveling in the neural pathways, coating them with a protective armor-like sheathing as they go. This coating protects the neural pathways from the damage that can happen as part of the natural aging process and from diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.

It has been proven that those taking CBD for dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, are able to retain memories for longer than their counterparts who do not take CBD. Those with Alzheimer’s, for example, have been able to retain their ability to recognize faces for longer than those who have not taken CBD at the first signs of the disease.

Pain can become chronic. The mind can become foggy with age. Our reaction times are worse as we age and we slow down a lot as our body isn’t able to move as smoothly or as swiftly. One of the best ways to combat these things is to use natural supplements when you can. Prescriptions for pain can be addictive and have side-effects that can be worse than the initial symptoms.

CBD continues to be researched and studied. It also continues to win hearts and minds as it gives relief to millions of people who praise it and write reviews every single day. While it does seem to reduce many of the symptoms to help people take control of their lives back, be able to get into and out of bed easier, and be more active, it isn’t a cure for anything.

CBD can manage pain and other symptoms of chronic issues. It’s not a cure or a treatment. If you use CBD with this understanding and know that it can be a very powerful and effective tool in managing your symptoms, you may find that you are able to have more good days than bad and enjoy being with your loved ones again instead of sitting at home in pain.

CBD Oil For Alzheimer Patients

You have seen the bottles at the local convenience store or perhaps it was in the local drug store? A lot of places carry CBD oil now. You seem to see it all over the place and you know that a lot of places are selling it and tons of people are buying it, but the last person you expected to be taking CBD gummies was your grandmother. When you asked her what CBD oil benefits she could possibly be enjoying, you were shocked to find out she was taking CBD to help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

It certainly seems to be a bit far-reaching for people to be taking CBD oil for something like Alzheimer’s disease, right? Maybe not. While it is true that there is no treatment for Alzheimer’s presently, there are CBD oil benefits for those with Alzheimer’s and memory loss, CBD gummies are just one of a hundred ways for people to be dosing themselves with CBD to help combat a myriad of chronic health symptoms.

While it isn’t a treatment or cure for anything, CBD has been shown in test after test to reduce inflammation, protect the neural pathways, improve focus and mental clarity, and even reduce the body’s reaction to pain. Let’s explore CBD in greater detail to help you understand how and why it works.

Alzheimer Patients Seek To Retain Memories For Longer
Patients who use CBD have been able to retain memories of faces for longer than those with Alzheimer’s disease who do not use CBD. This data has been collected through several studies that were focused on patients with age-related as well as early-onset Alzheimer’s.

Let’s start at the beginning. CBD is the acronym for cannabidiol, a cannabinoid found in cannabis plants that include both hemp and marijuana. Hemp and marijuana differ from each other in chemical composition. Hemp is naturally far lower in TCH (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the psychoactive cannabinoid compound in marijuana that causes the head high for which it is so well-known.

For this reason, CBD has been legalized in all fifty states. It’s so low in THC that it cannot cause a high effect on the brain, while it retains most of the therapeutic benefits of cannabis. CBD can impact the body very beneficially because it interacts with the ECS. Yes, another acronym. This one stands for the Endocannabinoid System. It’s a body system that isn’t widely known but it is likely the most important. It wasn’t discovered until the 1990s, so it is just starting to get the attention that it deserves.

The ECS works as a supervisor over other body systems and is constantly working to maintain homeostasis in the body. In other words, it works to constantly ensure a harmoniously balanced body. If you’ve got a fever, you’re out of balance and the ECS kicks into high gear to get the body moving to get that fever under control.

The ECS is made of thee parts:

  1. Enzymes that work to break-up used cannabinoids and remove the waste from the body
  2. Receptors that bind with cannabinoids (there are two types – CB1 and CB2)
  3. Endocannabinoids are made within the body and fuel the ECS to work in the body.

Endocannabinoids bind to receptors that are located all over the body. They can be found on the exterior of cell walls, in areas where the cannabinoids are needed the most. When phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids from plants) are introduced into the body, they can work with the ECS in the same way and provide fuel to boos the system into high gear when help is needed.

CBD is one of these cannabinoids that works to employ the ECS and get it to perform tasks within the body that bring back balance by relieving pain and many other things… like preserving the memories of Alzheimer’s patients.

How Does CBD Help With Memories?

CBD is a neural protectant. What this means is that it protects the neural pathways from the breakdown that occurs in the normal aging process, as well as the deterioration of the myelin that happens when Alzheimer’s ravages the body.

When CBD enters the body, it travels the neural pathways where it seeks a receptor. The majority of these receptors are located within the brain and the spinal column. As the molecule travels, it coats the neural pathways with a protective coating that works like an armor plating. It protects the neural tissues from degrading and from attack.

This, in turn, aids in mental clarity and acuity. People are able to focus better on CBD and this is why those with ADHD love to use it. It promotes the retention of memories and the overall health of the brain and the pathways by which your memories are stored.

Alzheimer’s patients who use CBD oil early in diagnosis have been found to remember faces for longer. This disease robs people of their memories and even their own children and spouses become strangers to them. Each day is a new day and yesterday is forgotten. CBD has shown that it can help them to remember their loved ones for longer. It doesn’t stop the progression of the disease. It slows it down.

Aside from Alzheimer’s disease, CBD can also help reduce inflammation, reduce pain, ease digestive issues, regulate weight, improve appetite, promote healthy skin and hair, and much more. People with Epilepsy have used CBD with great success to reduce the number of seizures suffered and also to reduce the severity of the seizures when they do have one.

In fact, it proved so effective for Epilepsy that the FDA approved CBD as the primary active ingredient in the Epilepsy medication known as Epidiolex. This was the first drug to receive the FDA stamp of approval and it is likely that it will not be the last medication. More research is being done and currently for a multitude of potential uses for CBD.

No one should market CBD as a cure. At this time, there is a lot of evidence to show that it has the ability to enhance your life and promote better health. It can help you feel better. It will not heal you. It may help cancer from spreading if you’re undergoing chemotherapy and it may even help prevent the sickness and nausea that often accompanies this treatment.

When it is used in conjunction with traditional medication, it can often do incredible things. Whether you choose CBD to enhance traditional medications or to avoid complications from them, it can be an excellent choice for many reasons, Alzheimer’s disease is one of the many things that can be slowed down.

CBD Oil For Dementia In Adults

Perhaps one of the things that are the most terrifying age-related issues is the thought of losing our minds and our memory. When we lose the memories of our lifetime, it’s as if we’ve died yet still remain breathing. Indeed, it is worrisome to become a burden to our families as well. This is perhaps what has people turning to hemp CBD oil and inquiring about CBD oil and dementia.

Hemp CBD oil is simply CBD oil that has been extracted from hemp, making it low in THC and legal. It doesn’t cause you to feel high or to be rendered unable to drive or work. CBD oil and dementia is receiving a lot of focus because CBD has been determined to be a neuroprotectant. We’ll explain what this means and how it may impact those with dementia.

Many people turn to CBD because it can be used without a prescription, isn’t addictive, and remains a natural choice that seemingly has little to no negative sife-effects. If you are on other medications you should definitely discuss using CBD oil with your doctor. Very few interactions with other medications exist but it is a blood thinner, so you should let your doctor know if you plan to use CBD oil with your current medications.

Dementia – A Terrifying Prospect

There are 7 stages of dementia. The first stage has no symptoms and is undetectable at this point. There is, as yet, no way to test early on if someone has dementia. If anyone in your family has suffered from it, you are more at risk, however.

Stage 2 – Very mild memory loss. This is often seen as normal aging issues like forgetting where the car keys are, losing your eyeglasses, etc.

Stage 3 – In this phase patients will begin to forget things like cleaning the house, paying bills and more serious issues that can impact their credit, getting utilities turned off, and even forgetting agreeing to go out to lunch and being completely surprised when someone shows up to get them for a lunch date.

Stage 4 – This is the point when dementia can be diagnosed. Cognitive decline can include a lack of ability to solve basic problems, do basic math, remember how to write checks, forget their way to places they’ve been to a thousand times, etc. In this phase, patients may become agitated when questioned and be very argumentative over memory issues, refusing to admit there is an issue.

Stage 5 – This is considered mid-stage dementia and patients may need help with daily tasks such as eating, cooking, bathing and more. People need to be supervised more, will leave ovens on and potentially do dangerous things out of forgetfulness.

Stage 6 – This stage brings loss of memories. People may begin to forget their own lives, faces of loved ones, who they are, where they are from, etc.

Stage 7 – End-stage dementia is devastating. Time means nothing and many patients lose their ability to even speak. Walking, toileting and most activities will need to be assisted at this point.

The total time to move through all the stages can take from 4 to 20 years. Sadly most patients succumb to dementia and pass away in less than 8 years. It depends on the patient. There is no cure for dementia but CBD has shown great promise at slowing it down.

CBD For Dementia

CBD is a neural protectant. When it enters the body, it travels through the neural pathways and coats them with a protective armor that prevents them from being destroyed. Dementia and Alzheimer’s are both devastating to the myelin that lines the neural pathways.

CBD protects this myelin and helps to ward off the devastation for much longer than if left alone. Patients compared side by side, some taking CBD and some not proved that those on CBD were able to slow the progression of the disease and mental degradation.

Dementia patients can sometimes become aggressive as well. It appears to be something that is common and patients have little to no control over this aggression. CBD can help balance moods and help to bring some balance to have fewer of these angry outbursts. This helps family members who are trying to care for those with dementia at home.

In fact, the help with mood swings and depression is likely the most positive impact that CBD has on dementia. It’s difficult to care for someone when they are angry with you. Feeding someone who is combative, for example, is impossible. CBD has helped many people to remain at home for far longer, keeping families whole for as long as possible.

CBD has the most impact when it is taken prior to a diagnosis. This means that people who have taken CBD as a supplement to their diet are able to prevent the symptoms for far longer. Once the disease begins to progress, it is harder to slow it down and certainly more difficult for families to prevent the ultimate move of their loved one into nursing home facilities with dedicated dementia wards.

It is tragic to watch those you love slowly fade away into a world inside their minds. They may hallucinate, have mood swings, angry outbursts, and seem completely out of touch with reality. They slowly lose their minds and you are unable to do much but watch. It’s a cruel, heartbreaking disease.

Using CBD while you are still healthy may potentially help prevent the disease from gaining this type of grip and it certainly doesn’t cause any harm. Many people turn to CBD when they have a family history of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Since there are many benefits to using CBD, it may serve many purposes and a happy bonus might be retaining your memories and mental faculties for far longer than you may have without it.

Far more research needs to be done to find out what impact CBD has precisely. For now, it seems to help the moods and we will likely know more about the full benefits over the next few years as scientists continue to ask questions and seek answers.

1 Increased Libido

Almost anyone who is familiar with the positive effects of cannabis can understand how CBD lube for sex can be considered a powerful aphrodisiac. Picture a pair of lovers feeding one another colorful gummies in the bedroom. Or maybe they are enjoying a romantic soak in the tub with the right CBD bath bomb and hemp soap. The chance of arousal is rising by the second.

How does CBD play a part in either a man or a woman’s sensual desire? It is not complicated. As soon as CBD is applied to one’s skin, it widens the user’s blood vessels. This makes it easier for oxygenated blood to flow freely throughout the body. In other words, CBD increases sexual arousal.

2 Improved Senses

As previously mentioned, CBD can do plenty for a man’s erectile dysfunction, which can work wonders for both parties.

The only thing missing will be some Marvin Gaye tunes in the background. 

5 Stress Is Managed

It is no secret that mental pressure, such as stress, anxiety and depression can wreak havoc on one’s sex life. Men cannot perform and the ladies become extremely uncomfortable. CBD products that can efficiently improve one’s overall frame of mind can do wonders for an individual in the bedroom.

At the same time, sleep improves, which can be marvelous for one’s energy levels throughout the day at work and in the sack after dark. With high quality CBD oil, you can take your mind off all the distractions that can obstruct you from intercourse. Right away, both mental and physical stress tends to float away. Sexual pleasure can be considerably improved for every party involved.

  • The most popular CBD items for managing sex-related stress include: CBD Gummies: The bestselling CBD edibles in the world are CBD gummies. Consumers get to pick from a wide variety of styles, sizes and flavors. You can start out slowly with a 250 mg jar of Blueberry Raspberry Rings, enjoy 1000 mgs of Multi-Colored Bears, or be the life of the party with a whopping 3000 mg container of tasty Watermelon Rings. There are even sugar free CBD gummies that are made with real fruit juice, vitamins and plenty of minerals. Right away, you can safely fill up your belly, while effectively managing your stress.
  • CBD Vape Oil: As much as individuals love their CBD gummies and other edibles, CBD vape oil is known for helping folks manage their stress. It is just a matter of finding the right oil for your particular taste. Fortunately, there are numerous hemp-derived CBD products out there that are not only made with pure ingredients, but also contain less than .3% THC. There is not enough THC in the CBD product to get you high. So which CBD vape juice will you try first, Blue Dream Blueberry or Strawberry Cheesecake?
  • CBD Tincture: If you are not familiar with CBD oil tinctures, they are liquid solutions that are made with special components that are mixed with hemp’s original terpenes. The end result is a drop that quickly gives a person an overall peaceful frame of mind. Rather than dropping the CBD down your throat, a tincture of CBD can be used to place CBD under your tongue. Many folks even mix it into their coffee on a daily basis. Again, there is no right method or flavor of a CBD tincture. People get to figure it out for themselves to deal with daily stressors and take full advantage of CBD in the bedroom.

There is no question that CBD can have a tremendous effect of one’s sex life. But realize that not all CBD merchandise is the same. For starters, only purchase high quality CBD products extracted from hemp that are laboratory tested and manufactured in the United States. There is no point in buying dirt cheap CBD products from overseas that will have zero effect in your system, besides frustrating you.

While those two crucial factors should be enough to ensure your overall safety, you should also stick to high quality CBD goods that come from a reliable vendor. Perform a little homework by checking out the CBD store’s website and reading posted reviews. Is the feedback positive and does it sound authentic? Do you believe the consumers’ stories about CBD’s different effects on their sex lives? Make sure the CBD is extracted from hemp, rather than the marijuana plant. Otherwise, the CBD may not be legal in your state. After all, marijuana derived-hemp can have up to 20% of THC that can quickly get you high. Once that happens, you won’t be able to drive your car or get any work accomplished.

Regardless of what delivery device you rely on for your CBD, figuring out your ideal dosage of CBD is essential. Over time, you can increase your dose. As soon as a higher dose stops agreeing with your system, simply stop. Return to the dosage that supplied your mind and body with the most benefits. At least you have nothing to fear, as there is no way to overdose on CBD.

How long should you take CBD before having sex? Like it or not, CBD does not take an immediate effect in a user’s system. That’s why it is important to plan a little ahead before fooling around in the bedroom. A user should begin enjoying its wonderful benefits in approximately 30 minutes. That’s just enough time to set the mood with two glasses of wine and some romantic words before getting down to business.

Powerful CBD products may be the smartest way to beef up a couple’s sex life, but they are not the only option out there. For instance, another technique to improve a couple’s sex life is to always take your time. Whether it is a good thing or not, sexual responses tend to slow down over time. That means it may take more time for either party to get aroused and eventually climax. Look at the positive side, you get to give your body a beneficial workout, while enjoying more time fooling around. Who knows what kind of sexual experience is waiting?

As simple as it may sound, having an in-depth talk about sex can always help a couple. Maybe he didn’t realize that she doesn’t enjoy that position, or perhaps he dislikes being touched there. Opening up a two way conversation about sexual intimacy can be extremely rewarding, especially when it leads to hidden fantasies and unchartered territory. Let’s just hope nobody is too embarrassed to prevent a completely honest discussion.

When it comes time to have your big talk about sex, it is important to find the right time. Rather than in front of everyone’s friends at a party, make time when you two can be alone. Otherwise, you are merely inviting unnecessary guilt and shame into the equation. Better yet, there is nothing wrong with speaking up while you are between the sheets.

Share your honest feeling and give constructive criticism. Just be careful not to be overly critical. Rather than “Stop touching me there,” try to focus on the positives. Say, “I prefer when you play with my hair.” Look at any issue as a problem to be worked out together, instead of assigning blame.

Rather than two teenagers in the back of a car, a pair of lovers can enjoy better sex when they take their time in an adequate setting. 30 minutes is better than 30 seconds. Look for somewhere comfortable, as well as dark and quiet. The last thing you want to worry about is any uninvited guests walking in. A major part of intimacy is minimizing distractions. When it comes time to fool around, take the phone off the hook and turn off your cell. Maybe lock Marley out of the room to prevent a cold nose from touching your naked behind.

The best place for a couple’s private talk and fooling around may be in a new environment, like a weekend getaway to the city or the Keys. You don’t need to spend all your time in the sack. Rather, enjoy your quality time together, whether you see a Broadway show, go parasailing or simply watch movies together without leaving your hotel room.

It also helps to increase intimacy, whether it is by making eye contact, kissing or continually touching your partner. Gently rubbing one’s fingertips over the other’s neck, back or lips can be fantastic for establishing affection. Just thinking about it may be enough to send the chills down your spine. Plenty of articles have been written, books published, and educational videos produced on making physical contact with a sexual partner. Is it time to be firm or gentle? There is no one right or wrong way to touch another person. It is up to you to decide and figure out the most effective techniques to keep your significant other aroused with no more than your touch.

A couple can always fool around in the middle of the day or with all the lights on to spice things up. Candles create an ideal glow, along with attractive scents. You can easily light another candle or blow one out to create the perfect atmosphere for making whoopee. Doing so allows you to gaze at your partner’s naked body, including when your private parts meet.

Another entertaining way to get the blood flowing up is by trying new positions. Do you miss the good ol’ days when you and your partner couldn’t keep your hands off one another? But that was years ago. You can’t even remember the last time you guys did something besides the missionary position. Use Google and check out new positions, including the Magic Mountain with decorative pillows and the yoga-friendly Viennese Oyster. You can even turn things upside down with the Trapeze. Just be careful. Nobody wants to explain any sexual positions to the paramedics.

Making yourself feel sexy can make things better for you, as well as your partner. I am not talking about getting liposuction or a hair transplant. Rather, I mean something small and effective, like taking a shower or completely shave a new part of your body. But don’t rule out something a bit naughty, such as black lace underwear and a garter belt for date night over the weekend. Do you want to introduce a sex toy? Even listening to the right music can do the trick, as long as you feel erotically attractive.

Playing the right sex games can be a blast. Instead of trying for hot and steamy relations every time you two get together, you can easily lighten the mood with the right competition. You may not have played Truth or Dare for decades, but you can still enjoy the classic game. What’s your sexual fantasy? How often do you pleasure yourself? Imagine how far you can go with risqué dares. There are also sexy dice games at almost every novelty shop. According to your roll, you’ll have to perform a verb, such as “lick” or “suck” one of your partner’s body part, like an ear or a finger. Needless to say, the contests can get rather steamy.

Try role playing as Romeo and Juliet or a brave warrior saving a princess. Discuss your fantasies, make up fun backstories and even dress the part. She can be a rich and famous actress from the glory days of Hollywood, and he can be a world famous porn star. Role playing can be an absolute blast that will improve your sex lives. You’ll also be creating memories that will always be cherished.

Then there’s the art of sensual massage before sex that’s been around since the ancient Hindu teachings of Tantra. Rather than the 10 minute massage you get at the mall, it is okay to take your time and be frisky. When you’re in the comfort of your own home, you don’t have to worry about getting sexually aroused or making any funny noises. The massage can be enjoyed in silence, as well with soft tunes or even a calming voice. A cool temperature and incense help set the mood. Coconut oil will moisturize both party’s skin. There are even flavored massage oils that can be rubbed in with one’s tongue.

There is no reason that a sensual massage should be limited to just a person’s back or private parts. The whole body should be included in a voluptuous massage. You can begin by running your fingertips along your partner’s head and scalp. Make small circles as you work your way down to his or her neck and shoulder blades. Work your way down by gently massaging the arms, chest and back. Don’t forget to massage each finger separately. Then work your way down to the buttocks, thighs, calves, feet and toes. Just think about how hot you will both feel after you spend a few minutes working each section of your partner’s body.

Some couples have decided to try a form of psychotherapy known as sex therapy. Often times, individuals like sharing their concerns with each other. Of course, a third-party can guide a conversation and explain how some of your body parts work. There are no exams and no nudity. The therapist merely listens and makes suggestions, like how to increase arousal after having a baby or when experiencing menopause.

You can take things a step further by moving your sexual escapades outside of the house. Go for a long walk in a park or a late night dipping in the pool, if not the ocean. Just make sure you two are alone before starting any funny business. Of course, the risk of getting caught is often a huge turn-on. But no sex is worth getting arrested. I don’t know. Maybe.

No matter what you do to bring a little excitement back into your sex life, remember to have fun. Leave romantic notes around the house, along with naughty messages. Tickle one another and laugh. Have you done it on the kitchen table or the hammock in the backyard? As long as everyone is safe from disease, pregnancy and indecent exposure, feel free to put on your Indiana Jones hat and get adventurous. The whip is optional.

While there are plenty of tricks out there to spice up couples’ sex lives, CBD products have the best reputation for helping men and women overcome their embarrassing troubles in the bedroom. According to countless individuals, CBD merchandise may be the best option for enhancing sexual pleasure, increasing libido and reducing erectile dysfunction. Can astonishing CBD be your savior in bed?

2019 in review: The hottest topics in the cannabis industry

A lot of things have happened in the cannabis industry throughout the course of this year 2019. As the year draws to a close, it’s that time of the year when we look back at the hottest topics throughout the course of the year. 2019 has sure been an interesting year with a lot of trending topics. We take a quick run through the year with the hottest topics in the cannabis industry.

January – Baby Boomers, the Aging Consumer.

For a long time, cannabis have been associated with youths. This isn’t wrong as many of the active consumers of cannabis are in their 20s. But there are many other users that are of the older generations. These include baby boomers. This is a growing segment of the cannabis users and they don’t fit very neatly into the box.

Young cannabis users tend to take cannabis for the fun of it, but boomers mostly take it for medical reasons. Most boomers, about 67% of them, take cannabis for the sake of their health and other medical reasons. Most boomers point out to body aches, pains and other medical issues as their reasons for consuming cannabis. Although there are many boomers who take it just to relax and feel good. As many of them have pointed out that it helps them to unwind and enjoy a good time. In the first quarter of 2019, about 62% of boomers consumed cannabis for health reasons in level 1 states.

February – The Rise of Social Consumption

There was an anticipation of the rise of cannabis social clubs that are legal in some markets before now. We saw this happen in 2019. Many cannabis users have said before that they enjoy taking cannabis alone in their homes. There are many others who have claimed that they take it only in small groups. There’s currently a large population of cannabis users who now take cannabis at public venues and in gatherings. In cities like Denver, Las Vegas and San Francisco, there have been more uses involved in public cannabis experience.

A large percentage of cannabis users in the US claim that they use cannabis for recreational and other social uses. Over 30% of users claim to consume it just before they meet with others. While 41% claim to use it for date nights and for daytime fun. Many legal cannabis clubs have emerged this year. Although, they’ve had to deal with regulatory issues in many cities

March – The Medicinal or Recreational CBD Debate.

This is a long-lasting debate, but it’s one that doesn’t matter anymore. Medical dispensaries are generally on the decline especially in places where they coexist with adult-use shops. This however doesn’t mean that people don’t use cannabis for medical reasons anymore. It’s just the business model that people prefer. There are more cannabis product available in the market today alongside an increase in cannabis education. This has led to the de-stigmatization of consumption of cannabis products and many more users now involve in taking cannabis both for recreational and medicinal purposes.

According to a survey, 64% of United States citizens already believe that there are medical benefits attached to cannabis consumption. 88% of people living in states where medical use or adult-sales is allowed also endorse it for medical purposes. Fewer people use it for singular purposes. Among those that use it for pain relief in level 1 states, 60% also indulge in it for social and recreational reasons. While 40% use it for both medical and recreational purpose.

April – Rise Of Cannabis Beverages

Nothing explains the rise in cannabis consumption more than a non-alcoholic cannabis beer. With the emergence of the cannabis beverage market, there are more options to consume cannabis. Cannabis beverage is probably the easiest and the most sociable way to consume cannabis.
In the second quarter of the year, beverages made a sale of $13.4M in the US edibles market. This makes up 6 of the total edibles market in the US. This follows a growing list of beverage brands in the market. As at the second quarter of 2019, there were 88 beverage brands in the market. With an increase of 19 brands from the second quarter of 2018. It is projected that by 2022, the US edibles market will reach a sale of $3.4 billion. It is estimated that by that time cannabis beverages will make sales up to $374 million, more than ten times the current figure.

There have been deliberations within the FDA as to the use of CBD as additives in drinks and food. The outcome of this deliberation will go a long way to determine the impact of cannabis

May – CBD Education

With the increasing popularity of CBD and cannabis product. People are developing more interest in this cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp. Very much unlike THC, CBD doesn’t give the psychoactive effect that THC gives.

Products with CBD in them are becoming popular and more common by the day, with different goods and brands buying into it. There is also the popular discussion on whether it should be used as an additive or not. There are more people who know about CBD these days than before.
The passing of the farm bill in 2018, which legalizes the growing of cannabis that has 0.3% THC, is partly responsible for the recent rise in the popularity and use of CBD. 56% of cannabis users in the US, say they don’t know the difference between the effects of THC and CBD. Compare this with previous stats, you will realize that more people are getting to know more about CBD and cannabis products.

June – More Brands Are Solidified

There have been more sales in cannabis product this year. CBD market has grown meteorically and many brands have become very solidly rooted. A lot of sales have been made in different categories ranging from edibles to concentrates and to topicals. Many brands far and wide has lead the sales. By producing quality products, many brands have built a fan base that is loyal to their product. The key is, they delivered on their promised experience, both the physio and the psycho experience.

Within the dispensary sales, branded product hold on to their lead on sales. As more consumers recognize these products and the strength of their market continues to increase, it is likely that they continue this trend.
In Colorado, 95% of the ingestibles market was full of branded products in the second quarter of this year. That is two percent more from the second quarter of 2018. In the category, the leading ingestibles brand took up 22% of all the sales while the closest competitor took up 11% of the ingestibles market.

July – Declining Prices

Perhaps surprisingly, the prices of many cannabis products in the market keep declining. There are a lot of reason that we can attribute to this decline in price. But the most likely one is that the price of the product largely determines consumer choice. You can’t be surprised by this though, most users would settle for a product that they can afford.

Products that offer premium prices also make their sales no doubt. But the best way to build a large, strong and loyal customer base is to ensure that the product is affordable for them.

In Oregon, the average of price of flower has reduced to $3.84 in June 2019. As at January 2016, it was as high as $9.28. Between the first quarter of 2016 and the second quarter of 2019, the average price of flower in Colorado has reduced by 44%. While the average price of concentrates has reduces by 26%. Things are quite different is California though. The price of flower only reduced by 3%. While the average price for concentrates and ingestibles increased by 23 and 33 percent respectively.

August – Customers Want Convenience

In the cannabis market, all the customers are after seem to be convenience. Before they venture into buying a product, the consumers crave for convenience. They don’t just want to be convenient when buying, they want to be convenient when consuming also. This clamor for convenience is more common among users that are new to cannabis consumption.
67% of users who shop in dispensaries have identified a convenient location as being very vital to their shopping. Over 50% of the users also claim that one of their top factors in determining whether to buy a product is the form of consumption. Delivery of the product is also a key factor in today’s market, just like with other products and services.

In the world today, convenience of the consumers is key to a successful business model. This is the same with the cannabis industry. The consumers are not just look to consume the product, they want to be convenient while doing so.

September – The Customer Core

Companies and brand that placed their focus on their customer base are bound to flourish. Although there are a lot of customers now flooding the products and a lot of new brands and companies providing competition for themselves, those that have flourished are those ones that place their core on their customers.

It is important for the companies to understand who their core customers are. This includes the discerning consumers. These are the cannabis enthusiasts that have experimented with different cannabis products. They understand the basic behind the cannabis science. It is important for these companies to focus their marketing on their core, even though mainstream consumers keep growing.

The discerning consumers are an important core of the consumer base. They are the early adopters, lead indicators and influencers. They take their time to know and understand details like terpenes, processing methods, packaging, growing methods etc. Companies that have paid

attention to these consumers have flourished more in 2019 and it is likely that this trend continues

October – Growth of Low Dose Products

In 2019, increasing number of cannabis users seem to pay more attention to the dosage. Users now care more about consistent dosing. They want to be able to control their experiences that they feel afterwards. There are still many consumers who stick to their “wild card’ dosage. But a larger population of consumers now prefer controlled dosage that meets up to the promise that’s set in their label.

Of the people consuming ingestibles in legal states, 54% now prefer to choose a product based on its CBD content. 58% of this 54% users prefer to buy products that don’t have THC in them at all or have a higher ratio of CBD to THC. 39% of consumers in legal states claim that manufacturers need more consistency in crafting their dosage. 43% users think that product label should have the intended effect in them, such as energy, relaxation, happiness etc.

November – CBD Legalization

Cannabis is already legal in many states and many activists are clamoring for it to be legalized in more states. In places like Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, New Mexico, Minnesota and Rhode Island, there are moves being made for cannabis to be legalized. In Vermont, possession and cultivation of cannabis is already legalized. The next move is the legalization of dispensaries that sell cannabis to users for recreational purpose.

About 65% of the country supports the federal legalization of cannabis. More than in recent years, the public support for the legalization of cannabis is really high now. It is likely that more states will legalize cannabis. With the increase in CBD education among users in 2019. The public are becoming more knowledgeable about the potential benefits that cannabis and CBD offers the consumers. This has led to more public outcry for the legalization of cannabis in more states. Many states are moving towards decriminalizing marijuana or enacting medical marijuana bill. Passing these bills will definitely be the first steps to full legalization of cannabis.

December – Studies Into New Ways to Use Medical Marijuana

There are different researches currently ongoing into the different compounds that are in cannabis. It is said that there may be some of these compounds that have anti-cancer properties. Researchers don’t just think that these compounds have anti-cancer properties. They also believe that it may be possible for them to synthesize new compounds from these ones. There’s a possibility that these synthesized compounds will have stronger anti-cancer properties than the ones in natural cannabinoids.

There are many others that think that CBD have antibiotic effects. This means that they may be able to treat infections that are resistant to antibiotics. These researches may result in the creation of topical CBD creams with antibiotic properties. Bacteria do not seem to be CBD resistant. At least, they haven’t shown that over the years. So this might be a viable solution to anti-biotic resistant infections.

Other Trending Topics in the Cannabis Industry

This is becoming a more common trend among cannabis users. Some states have already legalized the home cultivation of cannabis. There really is no reason to not plant cannabis since it’s legal in your state. Many cannabis consumers gave themselves more to planting cannabis by themselves. The success of these users have led to more users becoming more interested in growing cannabis by themselves. This trend among users have come to stay with. There are already many sites that give prospective growers DIY tips on how to successfully cultivate different strains of cannabis.

With an increase in cannabis popularity and the clamor for its legalization in all states, users in fully legal state can enjoy their self-grown cannabis.
Availability of more cannabis product

It’s not just new cannabis product that is infiltrating the cannabis market, there are new cannabis strains being created. There’s a strong likelihood that the growth of cannabis-infused beverages and other cannabis products will become rapid. This has led to many more companies investing in cannabis products and the cannabis market. Many of the cannabis beverages are already being made by companies that are mainstay in the beverage and alcohol industry. For example, there are talks already that Coca-Cola might make a carbonated drink that has CBD in it. It is also said that Molson-Coors might also create a beverage with cannabis infused in it.
The federal legalization of CBD may result in some companies selling CBD edibles even though they are not originally a part of the cannabis industry. There’s likelihood that there will be more variety of CBD edibles in the market in coming months. But marijuana flower will still be the most popular form.

The year 2019 has surely been an eventful one in the cannabis industry. The many developments that happened this year leaves the mouth watering for what the year 2020 has in stock. Many of these trends are set to continue into the new year. So many of these developments are here to stay and we can expect to see them birth more fruit in the year 2020.

How to Quit Smoking With CBD?

There are millions of people in America who smoke and tens of millions of other people who are experiencing smoking-associated diseases. It isn’t easy to stop smoking and the ones trapped in the throes of addiction often are searching for all of the help it’s possible to get. More and more, studies suggest that cannabidiol might have the ability to help folks stop cigarettes where prior attempts and techniques have failed. If you are looking to cease that nicotine habit, here is what you should know about CBD smoking cessation.

How Does CBD Oil Help People Stop Smoking?

Addiction to nicotine is the main reason smokers have trouble quitting. The CDC has discovered that more Americans are nicotine-addicted than any additional drug.  Furthermore, the studies suggest nicotine is as addictive as heroin or cocaine.

In a study performed in 2013, scientists tested the efficacy of cannabidiol on users who wanted to quit smoking. CBD research lasted one week and involved 24 subjects. Around 50% of the circle was administered CBD, and the other circle placebo; when the subjects felt the need to smoke a cigarette, they were asked to utilize the placebo inhalant or CBD administered to them first. The results, in the end, were encouraging: The twelve participants who obtained CBD decreased the quantity of cigarettes they smoked by approximately 40 percent, whereas the placebo circle witnessed no decrease in the quantity of cigarettes smoked.

Cannabidiol is currently becoming notorious for its possibility in treating a broad array of health diseases and conditions. In terms of cigarettes, most users are triggered by stressful circumstances. If that sounds familiar, CBD oil might be a healthier tool for managing such emotions, as there also have been promising and recent findings on using cannabidiol in the management of anxiety.

Breaking Addiction’s Cycle using CBD Oil

Addiction’s cycle may affect someone in various ways. Beyond environmental triggers, addiction is affected by both emotional, as well as cellular memory.

Your brain has an organic desire to create links. Anybody who has attempted to stop smoking knows that while drinking that first cup of coffee for the day, or maybe after eating, the need to smoke a cigarette abruptly amplifies as your brain connects the task to the act of smoking. Breaking the chain of reinforced behaviors and learned memories may be a lengthy process and includes one that adds another obstacle to stopping cigarettes.

Encouragingly, there’s proof that suggests CBD oil might have the ability to assist in loosening the grip of those habitual triggers.

A study performed in 2017 on rats discovered that cannabidiol disrupted the procedure of reinforcing and forming a preference for a certain environment based upon its ties with addictive substances. The research concluded with statements about the substantial “therapeutic possibility” of cannabidiol in breaking addiction’s cycle and relapse in which reliance upon drugs was proven to be contextual, tied with specific environments, situations, or memories. Therefore, in terms of stopping nicotine, cannabidiol might help decrease the addictive relations formed between cigarettes and specific circumstances where you would ritualistically smoke.

While first stopping cigarettes may take a lot of self-control and effort, continuing to avoid smoking may be equally as difficult. While there is more to be researched on cannabidiol’s impact specifically on nicotine addiction, continuous studies are generating promising results as far as the use of cannabidiol to stave off relapses. One study from 2018 on rats that were addicted to alcohol discovered that ‘Cannabidiol attenuated stress-induced and context-induced drug seeking without sedative effects, tolerance, or interference with usual motivated behavior.’ With those results in mind, cannabidiol might assist you in managing the need to get a cigarette in particularly stressful or triggering circumstances.

How Does CBD Oil Help with Withdrawal?

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that has the job of providing feelings of happiness and well-being. Nicotine triggers serotonin’s release, translating to the sense of contentment and calmness related to cigarette smoking. But, in between—and when stopping—cigarettes, withdrawal begins setting in and the reduced serotonin levels in the brain may result in a reduction in energy, depression, anxiety, and moodiness. That’s when you begin craving that next cigarette.

The addictive and cyclical nature of those serotonin troughs and peaks are among the reasons users of nicotine find it so challenging to stop.

Cannabidiol may activate the 5-HT1A receptor in the brain that increases serotonin’s availability in the same way as SSRI antidepressants. Therefore, CBD oil might help lower the irritability, anxiety, and stress related to attempts to stop smoking.

What’s the Best CBD Oil that Helps People Stop Smoking?

There are different delivery forms on-hand for the administration of CBD oil. Generally, they’ll all be efficient yet when it boils down to stopping cigarettes, some are better than others.

While using cannabidiol to stop smoking, the best method of delivery might be a vape pen. Some of what makes it so hard to stop smoking is the habitual nature of it. The habit of smoking—having the ability to step outdoors and bring a cigarette to your lips—is a huge part of what makes cigarettes pleasurable and challenging to stop. Vapes offer a method of easing out of nicotine addiction without breaking the physical ritual of smoking.

In times of abrupt stress, when somebody ordinarily would go have a smoke, they may vape instead. The exhale-inhale action is mostly the same; however, a nicotine-free vape pen may deliver relaxing, calming effects in minutes. The impact doesn’t last as long as with additional cannabidiol delivery forms, yet vaping it is perfect for sudden cravings and on-the-spot relief. As an extra bonus, vapes generate virtually no odor, so you will appreciate the act of smoking without that lingering, infamous cigarette odor afterwards.

Folks who want to quit all smoking-oriented behaviors might find tinctures or drops are the solution to abrupt cravings. While drops don’t take effect as rapidly as vaping, they still are fairly fast to offer relief. The cannabidiol gets absorbed into your bloodstream through the skin beneath your tongue, bypassing your digestive system and going to work usually within thirty minutes to one hour. Furthermore, the impact of drops may last for hours, which means you’ll likely only need a couple of doses in one day. Drops are available in portable, small bottles, which makes it simple to re-dose as necessary.

Other cannabidiol items such as edibles and capsules also can be integrated into your day-to-day regimen to reap the possible serotonin-boosting, anti-inflammatory cannabidiol benefits. Because those ingestion techniques must be metabolized through your digestive tract, they may take up to one hour to work, yet the effects will last most of the day, which means they’ll work in the background, helping your body and brain sustain homeostasis.

Before you use cannabidiol to stop cigarettes, it’s better to obtain advice from your doctor, as cannabidiol may interact with specific prescription medicine. You also might consider speaking with a cannabis physician who might know a little more about the use of CBD to manage addiction. In doing so, it is possible to determine the best dosage, as well as the safest method of using CBD oil.

CBD and Cryptocurrency in 2020

CBD and Cryptocurrency in 2020

What Everyone Will Be Talking about in the New Year

Two of the hottest billion dollar businesses in recent years, CBD and cryptocurrency, will only be getting bigger in 2020. While consumers can certainly combine the two trends by buying CBD products with digital assets, it is important to understand the two fashionable crazes. After all, both CBD and cryptocurrency can substantially alter an individual’s life.

While the most popular products are CBD gummies and any CBD tincture, there is a wide variety of CBD merchandise for sale, ranging from edibles, sex lubes, erotic massage oils and pet treats to bath bombs, soaps, honey sticks and coconut oil. As long as the CBD products for sale are derived from hemp, not marijuana, they possess less than 0.3% THC. That means a user will not experience the euphoric high associated with mary jane. The powerful CBD goodies are also legal in all 50 States.

Let’s begin with the most popular items, CBD edibles, such as gummies, sugar free gummies, and dried fruit. Each type of CBD makes for a delicious treat, whether it’s for you or as a Christmas present. Delectable CBD snacks taste just like candy. The powerful edibles are a fun and convenient way to get your daily dose of CBD.

Eating CBD gummies couldn’t be any easier. In fact, they are no different than scrumptious gummy bears. You can chew them up or let the gummies sit on your tongue. That way, you can take your time and savor the flavor. Once the CBD snack is swallowed, it makes its way through the digestive system and into the veins. Folks can simply increase the amount of CBD that they consume over time.

On top of edible delights, a person can now take advantage of a CBD oil tincture. Dependable CBD tinctures are inexpensive and convenient products that are easily absorbed in users’ mouths. They are also perfect for getting just the right amount of CBD. The best tinctures on the market are created with natural oils, appetizing flavors, alcohol and water to extract important compounds found in the cannabis plant.

Tinctures of CBD are also simple to consume. You simply begin with one dropper full and put the liquid under the tongue. Leave it there for anywhere between 60 and 120 seconds, and swallow. Many people feel that the best time to take CBD tinctures is after a meal or a snack.

Once you taken CBD tincture oil, you can enjoy the positive effects in less than half an hour. Better yet, you can enjoy the feeling for roughly 5 hours at a time. When it comes to how much CBD to ingest, it all depends on the strength of the dose. Best of all, you can toss one into your pocket or purse with ease and break it out whenever you desire, like just before the concert starts or before going to bed at night.

In case you are concerned about how long CBD will last in your system, everything should be safely flushed out of your body in a very short time, like five to six days. Of course, that length of time can increase to about 10 days for a chronic user. Still, that number from hemp-derived CBD doesn’t compare to the THC in marijuana that tends to last in a person’s body for several weeks at a time. 

Just make sure you only spend your time and money on hemp products that are free of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. Also make sure there are no other unwanted chemicals, like the ones found in pesticides. You can even find tasty CBD edibles that are vegan-friendly. Keeping safety as a priority, you should also make sure that any CBD products you buy come from hemp grown in the United States.

CBD is growing in popularity among the start-up industry, such as booming cryptocurrency. What is cryptocurrency? Also known as digital gold, cryptocurrency is a digital currency that can be used to buy and sell goods and services. However, there is no physical coins, dollar bills or even pieces of gold. Rather, cryptocurrency is transferred from one owner to another with neither government regulation nor taxes. Like Bill Gates likes to say, we are living in the digital revolution.”

Why not rely on digital currency? Many of today’s biggest businesses, such as Sweaty Quid Freelance Marketplace, Facebook and Amazon are built on innovative digital platforms. After all, there are numerous benefits to cryptocurrency. Of course, most consumers out there find the most attractive advantage to cryptocurrency is the money one can save.

For starters, cryptocurrency never has to worry about inflation. At the same time, digital assets offer lower transaction fees, as opposed to high credit card fees, especially when dealing with different currencies. People, as well as businesses are used to dishing out anywhere from 2% to 5% fees for every transaction made with a credit card. In fact, they are paying hundreds just to accept payment from international customers. Banking on cryptocurrency, these fees are considerably lower. In some cases, the fees cease to exist altogether.

Another benefit is the removal of chargebacks. Never again does a retail store or service have to worry about a client paying for something and using it before stopping a charge for some fabricated reason. In other words, unfair chargebacks do not have to be an unfortunate cost of doing business in today’s world. A refund can always be issued if an individual or vendor decides it is appropriate. It is having the option that attracts so many entrepreneurs.

Fluctuating currencies from one country to another is never an issue, attracting customers from around the globe. Then there is the speed of digital currencies. No longer do folks have to wait days at a time to receive funds through a bank, even if it is overseas. Rather, cryptocurrencies take an average of one day to be transferred from one owner to another. A fabulous comparison is thinking of a bank as the slow Postal Service, while viewing digital dollars as email.

Shoppers can feel more secure when shopping, as they never have to store their credit card numbers onto a website. Regardless of a company’s massive size, it can still be cyberattacked. Credit card numbers on file have already been stolen by Home Depot and Target. Ouch!

With cryptocurrency, consumers depend on temporary encrypted codes for processing, eliminating all unauthorized purchases in the future. If a customer knows his or her financial information is secure, he or she will feel completely safe conducting business with you and your organization.

Best of all, cryptocurrency users stick together. If one store accepts digital currency, but another doesn’t, who do you think will get a cryptocurrency user’s business? Those who put their faith in digital dollars tend to be excited about using the currency. As a direct result, they scratch one another’s backs.

The benefits of cryptocurrency in today’s business world are seemingly endless, breaking down geographic and political barriers, while saving time and money for every party. But it is tough to get your foot in the door of any new business.

Whether its for your spouse’s Christmas gift or a New Year’s treat to yourself, CBD gummies, CBD Vape Pens and E-Liquid, CBD oil tinctures, CBD Cosmetics and Body Care Products, and other CBD merchandise is always a smart choice. The same can be said for cryptocurrency. So why not be chic and load up on both?

4 Tips to Destress During a Hectic Christmas

Simple Techniques to Fight Off Stress During the Holidays

Do you find yourself being short tempered throughout the month of December? There is nothing abnormal about it. Often times, men and women find themselves under great strain during the holidays. Maybe they are concerned over their jobs, getting their loved ones the right gifts, or merely putting up with their in-laws over the holiday. That doesn’t even include the crowded shopping malls and packed parking lots. There is no question that Christmas time can be overwhelmingly stressful. At least there are 4 simple strategies, from using a pure CBD tincture to watching what you drink, that can provide phenomenal assistance in reducing holiday stress.

1          Take Advantage of CBD Products

While colorful CBD gummies are always fun, the most effective trick to keeping your cool during the holidays may be to rely on an amazing CBD oil tincture for sale. After all, cannabidiol is a natural compound that has gained popularity for helping people improve their moods by stimulating the serotonin in their brain cells. With the best CBD tincture to combat stress, a user can experience a peace of mind in no time. That means it will be easy to stay calm and cool with the rowdy kids and annoying house guests during Christmas dinner won’t be a problem this year. 

2          Be Honest

We all know somebody who is throwing a Christmas party this year. It makes no difference if you are talking to your employer, neighbor, or even your best buddy from childhood, always be truthful. If you truly don’t want to go to your office’s holiday dinner or neighbor’s Christmas Eve party, politely pass on the invitation. A person will get over a denied invitation. So it’s really not worth getting caught in a lie or showing up to a fiesta in a grumpy mood. In other words, say what you mean and mean what you say when it comes to Christmas get-togethers.

3          Remember to Catch Your Breath

Whenever you find yourself under physical or mental pressure, it is crucial that you pay attention to your breathing. If it is shallow, you should try to fix it right away. A smart trick is to take your time inhaling and exhaling deeply and slowly. Try to feel both actions in every part of your body, from your tippy toes to the end of your nose and the top of your head. Not only is this tension fighting technique nice and easy, it can be performed just about anywhere and in any situation. Whether you are in line at a department store or stuck in holiday traffic on the highway, deep belly breathing can help you stay calm and cool in just about any aggravating situation.

4          Create an Ideal Environment

With so many hours spent at work, boring holiday parties and getting ahold of unappreciated presents, you must dedicate some time to yourself. Maybe plan a few hours that you can treat yourself to a nice spa or a massage. Of course, you can always spend your “me time” resting in your bed, if not your favorite chair. Dim the lights and play The Dark Side of the Moon, or whatever music chills you out. Turn off your phone and unplug from cyberspace for a little while. Complete relaxation is just around the corner.

5 Techniques to Help You Relax

The Best Tricks to Unwind, Like a CBD Tincture

I woke up in a marvelous mood this morning. But when I tried entering the highway to get to work, I got stuck in a traffic jam. Then I got stressed out when some guy honked at me for trying to merge into the left lane. I got to work no more than 10 minutes late, but I still got a dirty look from my boss. To make matters worse, the office lost the internet for the entire morning. It’s not even lunchtime, and I feel completely overwhelmed. Thankfully, I am familiar with 5 highly effective tricks, like a pure CBD tincture and avoiding social media, to ease myself of physical and mental pressure.

1          CBD Tincture

Perhaps the best way to stay calm and cool in tense moments is to take advantage of a high potency CBD tincture for sale. Just like CBD gummies, the powerful tinctures are wonderful at helping people manage stress. At the same time, a user never has to worry about a euphoric “high” from hemp derived CBD, unlike the THC in marijuana. The top CBD oil tinctures on the market are also fast acting and last for several hours at a time.

2          Ease Your Muscles

While not much out there compares with the effectiveness of powerful CBD products, you can try progressive muscle relaxation to put your system at ease. For example, stretch out the muscles in your toes for 5 or 10 seconds at a time. Then relax them and breathe easy for 30 seconds. You can repeat the exercise three times before working your way through other muscle groups. Yoga is fantastic method of loosening up your muscles, as well as your mind.

3          Get Creative

Another nifty tip to fight off pressure in a hectic situation is to be imaginative. Just think, how would William Shakespeare or John Lennon handle the same circumstances. While you may not want to write a sonnet or stage a weeklong bed-in, there are always artistic outlets to help keep your mind focused and get things off your chest. Have you ever tried painting the sky or knitting a sweater for your spouse? Find a way to develop something positive from the circumstances.

4          Don’t Be Lazy

Whether you are at work or home, acting sluggish can have negative circumstances. A prime example is taking a bath. In theory, the warm water is supposed to be soothing, along with some candlelight and classical music in the background. But in reality, the water gets cold too quickly. You may be hanging out with germs that lead to staph infections. Cell phones often fall underwater, and filth-muck builds up on the tile. Trying to take a bath can become more of a strain than a relief.

5         

Finally, it is wise to avoid social media and news outlets, especially during controversial events. Unfortunate occurrences, like a friend’s recent divorce or the death of a loved one can easily bring down one’s spirits. You may also get reminded of broken relationships and other lousy stuff that happened to you in the past. There is no reason to look at a high school bully’s family photo or read his political rants. As long as you remain positive, relaxation can be a walk in the park.
