Nature’s Candies – What to Do with a Handful of Berries?

Welcome back! As everyone returned to work or school after a summer holiday, autumn is pampering us with fantastic, sunny weather and natural, delicious goods. We step into the fall with bags full of mushrooms, vegetables bigger than they usually are, fruits that make us drool, and – of course – berries, which we just cannot get enough of! It is so fun to pick wild strawberries and put them on a bent, eat blueberries with natural milk, put raspberries on your fingers while pretending that you are Amelie from Montmartre. For many people – and members of our team – various berries symbolize late summer and early autumn when we can eat a handful of them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Still, we would not have tasted all the flavours at that time! However, all the fun disappears when there are too many berries... We do not know what to do with them so that we may enjoy incredible tastes and vitamins all year round, and not just while the berries are still ripening?

Berries – a Source of Well-being

Before we start talking about berry preservation, it is necessary to mention at least a bit of why we need to eat berries all year round and not just when we can freshly pick them ourselves. Here we will not talk about buying berries in your local supermarket in the middle of winter. Although you can buy a variety of fresh products whenever you want them, it is healthier for our body to eat berries picked during their ripening season or the ones that are preserved to keep their nutrients. 

During their ripening season, the berries are the juiciest and have the most beneficial nutritional substances. Strawberries are a natural source of Vitamin C, while blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries have one of the highest percentages of antioxidants; they have similar amounts of antioxidants as pomegranate. Medical studies have also shown that blueberries help fight heart disease and lower blood cholesterol. Scientists have also found that certain berries can help fight cancer. For some experimental participants, eating a certain number of freeze-dried raspberries every day, their cancer numbers improved over time. 

In general, all berries are low in calories and high in fibre, so they are suitable for people with dietary restrictions or who just want to eat healthier and tastier. Berries can also make our skin glow! There are certain substances in berries that help fight enzymes that break down collagen. This protein is responsible for the elasticity of our skin. If we put all the pros in one place, we really would not find a reason to stay away from eating berries!

How to Preserve Berries’ Nutritional Value?

Suppose you ask your mom or grandma, as well as browse some internet blogs. In that case, you will easily find many tips and recipes that will allow you to preserve the nutritional value of berries all year round. One of the best ways is to freeze-dry berries, also known as lyophilization. Research has shown that freeze-dried berries have close to 90% of their fresh nutritional value, making them equivalent to eating freshly picked berries. 

Raspberries or sliced strawberries are especially popular in this way. Still, the process requires a particular freezing machine, which can be quite an investment. Lyophilization is usually done by certain companies. You can bring fresh berries and, after a few days, take back the little freeze-dried delicacies. Freeze-dried berries will be a great snack for those who want something sweet and healthy, as well as an excellent condiment for cakes or pastries. 

A slightly more straightforward and lovely way to preserve the nutritional value of berries is freezing, which does not require any special equipment apart from your freezer. Although the nutritional properties of this method have long been debated, it has been shown that frozen berries retain their nutritional value and are as healthy as fresh ones. 

Frozen berries are quite easy to use in various recipes, whether baking cakes, brewing tea, or making compotes. However, the most popular way is, without a doubt – the preparation of smoothies and cocktails! This way is also our favourite, but we don’t forget to add a little CBD Oil Drops – then we can enjoy both the taste of the berries and the benefits from CBD! The best part of this berry preservation method is that it is suitable for all berries – strawberries, raspberries, currants, blackberries, blueberries, cherries, wild strawberries or whatever you want!

Our team love natural fruit teas – it is an excellent source of vitamins, and the tea also warms us up on dark, long, autumn or winter evenings. However, in such weather, no one really does want to go to the store and buy fresh berries, so in such cases, it is handy to have some homemade berry jams in your pantry. When there are more berries than you can eat, you can always cook natural jams, which, when tightly closed, can be stored up until the next berry ripening season. 

In a large pot, put berries together with sugar, which allows the jams to harden and get that jelly texture, wait for the mix to come to a boil, and pour it into nice little jars. We should warn you that such recipes can contain a lot of sugar, so look for other recipes if you are the opposite of a sweet tooth. Whereas sugar enhances the sweetness of berries, the lack of it reduces the shelf life of the jams. It turns out that sugar is added to jams also because it absorbs moisture and prevents the spread of bacteria. Therefore, before eating the jam, which is less sweet, be sure to check the jar for the mould!

Berries are called the nature's candies for a reason – it is a source of natural sugar that can be eaten with no shame regardless of the time of the day. However, there is a way to turn berries into real-life sweets, but we warn you in advance that this recipe will require a lot of sugar. Be sure to skip this part of the blog if you have enough sweetness in your life already! Candied berries are made by bringing a sugar and water mix to a boil, which turns into a syrup. Then berries are dipped into it one by one and later sprinkled with some powdered sugar. It's true – candied berries are a sugar lover's dream. Still, different sources have different opinions on how long can candied berries be stored. Before eating them, be sure to inspect candied berries for mould, and always keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

As we are finished with this blog, we can guarantee you will be in a rush to preserve all the berries by freezing, boiling, or drying them. On the other hand, we put the berries in our newest product – CBD Blueberry Gummies Full Spectrum! Natural gummies are perfect for the beginning of the fall and all year round! From now on, you can purchase these deliciously healthy gummies in even more convenient packaging.

Too long, didn’t read? Berries are nature’s candies, but they all have one problem – short ripening season. We today introduced you to four different ways to preserve berries’ nutritional value up until the following season. Choose freeze-dried, frozen, candied berries, or start making natural homemade jams right away!

How to Pack Beauty? – Your Cosmetics’ Bag Travels with You

You may have planned your whole life carefully, but the best things happen spontaneously. For example, a holiday, a short trip of just a few days to a lovely resort, or a weekend getaway to nature. Holidays, wherever adventure winds may take you, require a degree of preparation, quick thinking, and anticipation. We are talking about something you would not do without on many of your trips – your personal cosmetic’s bag, which holds your whole life and much more. When travelling light, you can take only a minimal number of personal belongings, including cosmetics, so trying to pack the entire daily beauty routine into a tiny bag is a real headache.

What Exactly is in Our Cosmetics’ Bags?

We are all aware that everyday cosmetics and hygiene products are most worth buying in large quantities. This, however, means large bottles of products that are difficult to fit onto the bathroom shelf or in drawers. We will not even begin to talk about packing it all for your trip – one large bottle may find its place in your suitcase, but not five or even more products! Such reality shines a different light on a few things.

Firstly, we are used to having products for all occasions. Let's look at any bathroom or any cosmetic's bag. We will see many similar products, which formulas differ in one or two ingredients. Since we do not go too deep into what is written in small print, we often buy products that we don't really need. Still, the different name on the product's packaging indicates that we don't have it our arsenal of beauty yet. As we want to prepare for this war as best as possible, we usually buy everything we lay our eyes on.

Secondly, the world’s famous cosmetic brands thrive on such behaviour. You may have seen several products of the same line in the store more than once. For example, shampoo, conditioner, and hair masks are designed to work together and supposedly bring fabulous results. Producing different product lines is just a cheap marketing and product design trick that forces customers to buy more than they really need. It creates a sense of urgency and foreshadows the best results possible, which do not work great with our logical thinking.

To sum up – we have tones of unnecessary products in our cosmetic’s bags. We probably don’t even need to add that the more products we have, the harder it is to fit them in one cosmetic bag or say goodbye to them for at least a few days that you will spend away from home.

What Our Cosmetic’s Bags Actually Need?

Whether you’re at home or going on holiday, just like with clothes, we have stuff we don’t need at all and miss things that we don’t intentionally have with us at that time. To avoid this, we advise you to make a list of cosmetic and beauty products and consider what you are using. Eliminate whatever just collects dust on the shelf and is over its expiration date. We mostly have but do not use gifted cosmetics and beauty products, especially ones that require a lot of time daily to operate correctly.

During trips, just as after a hard day’s work, no one really wants to spend long hours in front of a mirror, so here wins a quick and convenient beauty and hygiene routine. It usually consists of basic yet essential things – hair, skin, oral care products, for example, shampoo, shower gel, various creams, toothpaste, and brush. We will not include multiple serums, ampoules, masks, or anything like that in this super shortlist because every ordinary person does not use them.

To prepare for all life adventures, just a few simple products are enough. To regain strength and maintain your beauty levels every day, you do not need to carry a few pounds worth of products everywhere you go. When travelling, it is not necessary to fit a lifetime of cosmetic products in one tiny cosmetic’s bag. However, probably every person has tried to do so without even using many things once.

How Can We Change Some Products?

Some things are simply irreplaceable, but you can discover an even better alternative to make your life and daily beauty routine easier by searching more closely. Although this is not yet a popular option, some brands sell their products in different forms. This means that you can buy two or even three different types of the same product in brands’ online stores, for example, liquid shampoo, spray shampoo, and hard shampoo. Even though the first two examples still reach consumers in bottles (glass, plastic, or metal), the third option is usually packaged in paper packaging. The hard shampoo is friendlier for the environment and takes up less space in our bathrooms and cosmetic bags. Moreover, hard shampoo usually lasts for a more extended period than liquid shampoo.

Another thing worth mentioning is products with universal purpose. While men can quite often find one bottle that will contain shampoo or shower gel and hair conditioner, women are often forced by manufacturers to buy a greater number of different products. It hurts our wallets and the environment, and it also requires a lot of space. Universal products like shampoo + conditioner or shower gel + body lotion helps to save space not only daily but also on trips.

How to Fit EVERYTHING?

Once you have decided what to take with you on the trip, it is time to try and fit everything in one tiny little cosmetic’s bag – and this is where the fun begins. Of course, it depends on the size of your cosmetic bag whether you will fit products to be your partners in crime on trips and adventures. At this point, we advise you to choose the optimal size cosmetic bag according to your travel style. You will probably be able to take more cosmetic products when travelling by car. On a plane with only hand luggage, you are guaranteed not to be able to do so; otherwise, you will only be restricting yourself. Don’t be afraid to buy a new cosmetic’s bag of a different size every few years because it is unnecessary to live a life with only one cosmetic bag.

Before buying a new cosmetic’s bag or just packing it for a trip, think about your beauty and hygiene need at that time. If you stay longer in one place, you may choose cosmetic bags with a zipper. On arrival at the place, you can conveniently unpack everything onto the cosmetics’ table. If you choose a more active holiday and spend every night at a different location or perhaps in nature, choose hanging cosmetic bags with clear compartments. You will always see all the necessary products immediately.

It is essential to responsibly plan the sizes of the cosmetics you take on your trip. We will not tell you the news if we mention that the size of one bottle of cosmetics cannot exceed 100 ml when travelling by place. Still, you will need even less product if travelling for just a couple days. No matter how we like it, travelling does not last forever, so it’s important not to overload ourselves with too many things, including cosmetics. It is always possible to buy samples as almost every popular product always offers a smaller, travelling-friendly version. Besides, the hotels themselves offer the most necessary cosmetics, which all guests find in their rooms and often take home with them. So, think about whether something is worth taking if you will be given it for free.

Another great way to save space in your beauty bag is to share hygiene products with your partner, roommate, or travel friend. Men’s shower gel is perfect for women and vice versa, so on the trip, you will need to take not two bottles of a specific product, but only one.

It is also convenient to be prepared in advance – pack your essential cosmetic bag and take it with you everywhere, keeping it in your car. This can often save you from the inconvenience of suddenly staying overnight with friends or going on a spontaneous holiday.

However, often you start planning your essential cosmetic bag, you may not even know where to start. We have thought of you and created products that help ensure order in your cosmetic bag and your daily routine. Recently we started selling three different bundles so that everyone can find the most suitable option for themselves. Very soon, this fun trio will grow as we are planning to release one more bundle. Let’s start by learning what we can offer you at this point.

The first bundle is for those just beginning their journey through this adventure-filled world of cannabinoids – it’s Beginner Bundle! We had put three excellent products in one convenient cosmetic bag – CBD Blueberry Gummies Full Spectrum, CBD Premium Skin Cream, and CBD Oil Drops Raw (5%)! Combining these products will help a person who doesn’t know anything about CBD to discover balance and harmony in three areas at once – mind, soul, and body, so why not try it today?

The second bundle is for those who are also seeking the full benefits of using cannabinoid products – it’s Wellness Bundle! In a comfortable and eco-friendly cosmetic bag, we put MULTI-Cannabinoids Paste, CBD Cooling Gel, and CBG Oil Drops Raw (10%)! This combination will help you always feel energetic and not lacking good emotions!

The third but certainly not the last bundle is for those already convinced of CBD benefits and want to try it for themselves – it’s CBD Trio Bundle! It is a set of our very first products, in which everyone will discover the most suitable concentration of CBD for themselves and their families. In a convenient cosmetic bag, you will find 5%, 10%, and 21% CBD Oil Drops Raw, which has now long been everyone’s favourite! Those who have not yet experienced this joy will be able to gradually discover the benefits of cannabinoids.

What will you put in your cosmetic bag?

Too long, didn’t read? Your cosmetic bag holds a lifetime and more, but what happens when you must go on a trip? Before packing items and especially cosmetics, think about what products you will absolutely need. Maybe you can do a few days without a body scrub or hair mask? We advise you to choose products as versatile as possible and packed in small packaging; take samples of your already loved products with you! For unexpected trips, always have prepared a cosmetic bag with your essentials.

Love for Food – How Our Eating Habits Can Both Help and Hurt?


Could you have thought that half a year would pass so quickly? We didn’t even notice, and the month of June has just ended. For some, it was a tense period of studying and exams; for others, it was an opportunity to complete essential tasks and make new business deals, while others could use that time to prepare for the upcoming holiday season slowly. We will set aside July and August for holidays and natural gifts to anticipate events ahead of time. We will talk about how to have a safe and fun holiday in nature and how to create a holiday for your pets. We will also have some fun conversations for you to read with people who have successfully incorporated cannabis products into their daily lives. It is worth the wait, and while waiting, it is worth visiting our online store, where you will see more news this summer.

Strangely enough, summer for many people starts as early as winter. You ask, how is this even possible? Before the New Year, we promise to start exercising, move more, give up bad habits and thus prepare our body (and soul) for the upcoming hot season of the year. In the summer, we take off our clothes and enjoy time spent at lakes, sea, river or calmly swimming in a pool, sunbathing in the sun, and boldly (or not) demonstrating our bodies. One action that requires most of our attention before summer begins is nutrition. 

A healthy and balanced diet helps maintain a good appearance and strengthens our bodies from within. No matter how positive the sentence you just read sounds, nutrition also can become our biggest problem. Nevertheless, this will not be the main topic of this blog today. We will dedicate this text to get you acquainted with three different diets – vegetarianism, veganism, and raw food. The rapidly growing diets are popular among fashionable youth, but how stylish are the reasons behind their choices?

What Harm does Human Eating Habits do to Nature (and Us)?

We will not be surprising anyone saying that not only impressive amounts of plastic waste but also many food wastes going to landfills worldwide every year. The reality is quite painful, but the statistics are even more shocking: we throw around 1.3 billion tonnes of food waste a year. The numbers remain numbers that do not usually have any long-term impact on people and their consumptions habits. However, it is particularly worth considering that this amount of food waste accounts for a third of all food stocks grown and produced in the world. We must add that this costs the world economy almost one trillion dollars every year. From an economic perspective alone, these numbers are enormous, but such a loss is more detrimental to the well-being of our planet and our health than to our wallets.

Let’s take a closer look at what foods are most often thrown away and how much such consumptions habits cost us? According to international informational sources, people are most likely to throw away fish products and seafood, cereals, legumes, meat, and dairy products. We could go on with this list, but here we can already spot some critical aspects. We are depleting the oceans by throwing away fish and seafood; we are wasting water by growing vegetables that no one needs. By throwing away beef and dairy products, we contribute to the growing amount of methane gas depleting the Ozone layer. On top of all that, we are casually looking at the efforts of those people for whom food growing is their primary source of livelihood.

Every day and every year, we need to talk more and more loudly about the change in food consumption habits and that we subconsciously choose to consume foods that are detrimental to our health. Research has shown that people who eat red meat are more likely to suffer from diabetes, have cardiovascular problems, and certain types of cancer. An even more significant number of scientific articles conclude that consuming fatty foods and meals significantly increases early deaths and shorten life expectancy. Even though food deprivation affects close to one billion people globally, those who have too much food suffer as well – such people from obesity and various diseases. 

To help both themselves and the planet, every year, more and more people choose to change their eating habits radically, give up meat, fish, dairy products or eat what is not heat-treated.

Vegetarian Diet

Vegetarianism is one of the most popular dietary practices adopted by nearly 10 per cent of the world’s population. While India is considered the most vegetarian country, one of the main reasons is its religious beliefs (Hindus consider cows to be a sacred symbol of life, thus, protecting it). Other reasons include ethical convictions and cultural, aesthetic, ecological, economic, political, taste and health reasons. For example, people may abandon eating any meat, including fish, poultry, crustaceans, and slaughter by-products because they do not find meat tasty or believe animals are equal to humans and have a soul. There are several different types of vegetarians, as some people choose to eliminate eggs from their diets and others do not. However, most vegetarianism cases include people giving up any animal-related products, for example, choosing eco-leather clothing, not wearing accessories made from animal horns, etc.  

Vegan Diet

Veganism is a more diet restrictive version of vegetarianism; while people with a later diet can still have a glass of cow’s milk or eat cheese, vegans opt-out for alternatives such as soy milk, coconut milk, or tofu. As said, vegans exclude any animal-related food from their diet as they, for example, consider milking a cow equal to doing injustice to an animal and hurting it. A vegan diet includes fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds, whole grain products, already mentioned dairy alternatives and vegetable oils. The major downside of a vegan diet is that the lack of fatty acids found in fish consumption can lead to depression and other psychological and emotional problems. However, the vegan diet is still considered healthier than eating meat.

Raw Food Diet

While vegetarianism and veganism exclude meat, fish, dairy and eggs, raw food diet allows eating almost everything if food’s temperature does not go above a certain number of degrees. Eating unpasteurized and raw foods such as meats is dangerous; therefore, raw food diet mainly includes fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouted grains. Despite many different reasons behind vegetarians and vegans’ decisions to eliminate meat and animal-related products from their diet, the raw food diet’s main rules are based on studies stating that such a diet allows people to consume more nutrients than processed and cooked food. Sticking to raw food diet does not mean you only get to eat raw fruits and vegetables as such dietary restrictions include blending and dehydrating foods to prepare them for eating. Even though such a diet sounds very simple to follow, it can be a burden to your wallet as organic foods tend to cost more than regular groceries.

A change in your diet is an important decision to make; thus, it should not be made in a hurry. While for some people, vegetarianism, veganism, and raw food diet is a way to make a statement and contribute to the conservation of the planet themselves, others should only make such decisions after a thorough chat with their nutritionist or family practitioner.

Too long, didn’t read? The world suffers from human eating habits: impressive amounts of food are thrown away every year, and things we eat often harms our health. To help themselves and the planet, every year, more and more people become vegetarians, vegans, or choose to eat only raw food. By giving up meat, dairy products, fish, etc., their diet mainly consists of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and whole grains. At the same time, various food substitutes are used to maintain vital body functions and obtain all the necessary nutrients.

CBD and Summer – How One Complements Another?

For many people, summer is the most adventurous and exciting season out of all four. Unlimited sunshine, breathtaking places, comfortable clothing, millions of stars in the night sky and new experiences pretty much waiting for you behind every corner. Sounds lovely, right? At the same time, another type of relationship with summer exists as some people find this season hard and sometimes even impossible to enjoy. Generalizing is probably one of the worst things we can do when talking about summer, but we will not deny that this season is indeed charming; we just need to discover it. This month we will talk precisely about that – we dedicated June to newly present you the attributes without which summer would not be worth waiting. So, let’s fill our summer with tasty food, refreshing drinks, never-ending beauty and entertainment to remember!

--

We briefly mentioned that people might have both love and hate relationship with the summer season. There are many valid explanations why this is happening, mainly depending on the people themselves and their personal lives. Maybe something has happened one summer that they do not want to remember, perhaps they just don’t like the heat, maybe the reasoning behind it is even more serious... Well- we are not the ones to judge but the ones to help, so today, we will talk precisely about how CBD can help us survive all summer disasters.

Summer Seasonal Affective Disorder... What?!

It is no secret that seasonal transitions have profound effect on our daily lives. We must admit that it is slightly strange to talk about negative side of seasonal transitions as we say farewell to spring and hello to summer. However, our feelings and emotions do depend on differences in temperature and weather changes despite whether we step into dark and cold months, late autumn rains and short winter days or witness the beginning of summer. In reality, neither adds us confidence and happiness, but summer next to all that causes people mixed emotions including anxiety because of their body image, hectic schedules, concerns of burning out and, of course, holiday envy.

As researchers guess, summer seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, is a depression mainly caused, as researchers assume, by longer days, increasing heat and humidity. As experts say, all seasonal disorders are believed to be closely related to sunlight patterns. Therefore, the sun should be blamed for the problems. Sunlight, together with actively ageing our skin, turns off the melatonin production in our bodies. Accordingly, we have a smaller timeframe to produce enough melatonin hormone to put our sleep-wake cycle in order during the summer. Usually resulting in lethargy and sadness, SAD also includes troubles sleeping, heightened anxiety, loss of appetite, and weight loss. As unfair as it may sound, researchers have found that women are more likely to be affected by SAD than men despite reporting more severe symptoms.

How to Solve the Problem When it Lies Within?

Summer Seasonal Affective Disorder is not a very common phenomenon and, according to experts, affect on average 1 in 20 adult Americans. While it is argued that the sun and long hot summer days should be blamed for this, we also should look inside ourselves before blaming something that we cannot change. As roots of many various problems may lie hidden in our thoughts and bodies, it could make us more vulnerable despite not being the problem themselves. The good news is those problems can usually be solved in simple yet very clever ways, and at the same time as it will help us fight summer disasters, it will also make us feel happy and relaxed all year round.

Last autumn, we talked about preparing our bodies and thought for the upcoming winter cold. We advised you to exercise regularly, eat healthily, not rush, take care of yourself, and emphasized the importance of a regular sleep cycle. Although we won’t find negative temperatures during the summer months, the ways to fight summer seasonal affective disorder are pretty similar. We need exercising to boost our mood while a healthy and balanced diet helps provide the body with all the necessary nutrients and vitamins. Taking little breaks and immersing ourselves in calming thoughts helps everyone stay focused and be more productive while sleep based on what we discussed a few paragraphs earlier, helps us relax and feel more energetic.

However, sometimes it is challenging to keep promises and just take care of yourself because summer is one of the busiest times of the year. Despite holidays, there is twice as much work and stress both before leaving for holidays and coming back to work after them. CBD products in summer are indispensable because it helps you feel calmer and reduce anxiety we usually experience when travelling or trying to combine work with relaxation and because it helps to enjoy more quality sleep and is excellent for relieving various pain. 

Correct and consistent use of CBD Oil Drops is necessary not only in summer but all year round- we know that miracles do not happen in an instant. Now in our store, you can find as many as three different types of CBD Oil Drops! One has already become our bestselling product, other ones have ZERO THC, and the newest ones – CBG Oil Drops have higher potential. All you need to do is take advantage of the discounts available and start enjoying the summer to its fullest!

Which is More Important – Inside or Outside?

The biggest but not the only difference between our internal and external problems is that the latter is easier to notice, which means that they are much easier to solve. During summer, no matter how we choose to spend it, we are inevitably exposed to more significant amounts of sunshine. Our skin is not happy about it; it is the same love and hate relationship, just another level! We can improve the situation by using various skin care products, masks, oils, serums, creams and more. Although different skin types require extra care in the summer, the essential thing is the right ingredients and preparations for all occasions!

It cannot be more obvious – here we are talking about the necessary moisturizing of the skin, its protection from UV rays, enrichment with vital natural substances and skincare products that are always with you. CBD Cosmetics are beneficial for our precious skin. It has excellent anti-inflammatory properties, so you can use CBD Topicals to reduce swelling, pain, redness, and skin irritation without any worries. These problems are among the most common calamities that make us sad when we really should be enjoying the summer. Providing a unique calming effect, CBD Cosmetics have a positive impact on the skin, so before you start getting ready for summer, visit our store, where an even more extensive selection of CBD Cosmetics will be available soon.

Summer is a happy time, and every person deserves to enjoy those three months to the fullest. Do not be afraid to try many different things until the autumn comes and experience only the most beautiful feelings. CBD Products will help you feel more assured of summer fun and will become another necessary attribute of a safe and fun summer.

Too long, didn’t read? Summer depression is a thing, and - to believe experts- it is caused by changing sunlight patterns. Summer seasonal affective disorder results in heightened anxiety, trouble sleeping, and appetite loss but can be eased by using the highest quality CBD products! For a summer without any worries, choose CBD or CBG Oil Drops and a full range of CBD Cosmetics.

Meet our Products - Organic Goods to Power Your Life

We started Biomedicanna with an idea, which made our eyes flicker with fire – we knew what we wanted ourselves and what we wanted to give to other people. We realized how powerful and healing nature can be and decided to share its strength with others. Like thousands of businesses worldwide, we started this ambitious journey by offering consumers a small selection of goods. However, we knew exactly what requirements and attitudes our products would meet – responsible growth and manufacturing, sustainability, vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free (we talked more about this in our previous blog). For more than a year now, we have been purposefully increasing the size of our e-shop and producing and selling only exceptional quality wellness products – drops, pastes, and cosmetics.

Nevertheless, we believe that it can still be difficult for many to grasp our range and understand all the valuable features of the products. Today we will once again get you acquainted with our products.

Strength in Every Drop

We will not lie by saying that people usually tend to misjudge certain things, so it is no secret that sometimes we pay too much attention to big things, and we tend to let small details pass through our finger. We’ve come a long way in improving the formula of the CBD Oil Drops, but not we are sure that even the smallest drop has a lot of strength, valuable materials, natural secrets, and science-based healthy solutions. 

One of the main reasons for the popularity of CBD Oil Drops is their versatility and ease of use. The relatively small 10 ml bottle holds approximately 200 drops, which, depending on consumption, last for an average of one month. In addition, there are a lot of cannabinoids, so hemp extracts have an extensive range of uses and an even more comprehensive range of health benefits. CBD Oil Drops can be used to relieve various pain, reduce levels of anxiety and depression, post-traumatic stress, and reduce the severity of acne. It may also help reduce both painful chemotherapy symptoms and reduce the growth of cancerous cells. CBD Oil Drops may also help fall asleep faster, strengthen the blood circulatory system and reduce various inflammations. As CBD itself has not yet been so extensively studied, one can only predict what other benefits scientists will find in multiple studies shortly.

CBD is one of the most prominent cannabinoids found in the hemp plant; however, it is certainly not the only one. Although different amounts of other cannabinoids can be found in CBD Oil Drops, those amounts will be small. It is worth mentioning THC, which is psychoactive cannabinoids that causes a ‘high’ sensation when used, can also be traced in certain products that we sell. Every time we communicate with buyers and prepare social media posts, advertise products, we emphasize that the amount of THC contained in the products does not exceed the laws in force in many countries and is significantly too small to give the already mentioned feeling. 

However, there are many countries where the use of this cannabinoid is regulated under even more strict laws. Due to this reason, we recently introduced CBD Oil Drops ZERO THC, which has already reached fantastic popularity. These products differ from the other on already mentioned THC cannabinoid content and label colours (the labels show greener when the other labels are more reminiscent of earth brown). Both types of CBD Oil Drops we sell are entirely safe to use, and differences do not impact their beneficial properties.

Another unique aspect of CBD Oil Drops is finding them in our store in three different strengths – 5, 10 & 21 per cent. The number, of course, indicates a different amount of CBD cannabinoid – the higher the number, the more milligrams of the component there is in the bottle; therefore, the stronger its effect. Despite the beneficial properties of CBD, we advise each community member to start their relationship with hemp using the weakest drops and gradually move to the more robust products. Consumption also depends on the desired effect: the weakest drops are suitable just to improve wellness, medium drops are perfect for people with minor health problems. In contrast, the strongest ones are usually used by people with significant health problems already treated by western medicine (one must consult a professional medical practitioner beforehand).

Syringe Full of Wellness

For many people, syringes are associated with sad emotions, sickness, and pain, but at Biomedicanna, a syringe means a burst of energy and health, and not needless or medication. To make the members of our community as familiar as possible with cannabinoids other than CBD, we filled the syringes with natural powers, organic ingredients, and scientific knowledge about hemp.

The products – CBG or MULTI-cannabinoid Paste – due to their specific texture, arrive at the customers’ home in 5 ml containers, which are incredibly convenient to use and always take with you. Another advantage is that the syringe accommodates about 100 rice grain size droplets. Although it may seem that the CBD Oil Drops discussed before outperforming the paste, it is necessary to mention that the paste usually has a higher concentration than the drops, so it promises faster and more prominent wellness effects.

We currently offer two different types of paste in our store. One of which is with CBG, also known as the mother cannabinoid (some other cannabinoids deriving from CBG are found as time goes on as a result of chemical reactions – read more about this in our blog a few weeks ago). Due to the extremely short harvesting window and a small amount, CBG is highly valued; it has no psychoactive effects. Even though CBG Paste is mainly chosen by patients diagnosed with oncological diseases and other severe health disorders, CBG is capable of helping other organs and systems as well. As CBG molecules attach very well to the endocannabinoid system receptors in various parts of our body, it supports multiple organs to function better. Brain, liver, spleen, pancreas, colon, vascular, reproductive, immune systems, muscles and bones all benefit from the consistent and correct use of CBG Paste.

However, CBG is not the only cannabinoid that deserves our praise. All cannabinoids found in hemp have favourable health properties, but what distinguishes them is the process of purification and isolation. To achieve the best possible effect and keep the product properties as natural as possible, we also offer customers a MULTI-cannabinoid Paste. In it, as many as seven different cannabinoids reveal their beneficial properties. The MULTI-cannabinoid Paste, which is on the market not for that long, quickly became one of the best-selling products, as one droplet here provides exceptional benefits.

Magic on Skin

People say that beauty lies inside, but in our opinion, one must radiate it from the outside. Of course, our health contributes a lot to our external beauty, but we are convinced that natural, organic cosmetics are just as crucial in maintaining our outer beauty. By understanding the power of nature and appreciating its wide range of healing properties, we have incorporated what is best in the hemp plant into various skin cosmetics and supplemented it with other natural ingredients to exceed everyone’s expectations.

If we had to find one word that would perfectly describe all of the skin cosmetic products in our store, it would be versatility without any hesitation. We believe that we must make the earth a better, safer place by leaving the world than we found it. We support sustainable ideas by using natural ingredients and adopting responsible, modern practices and ensuring that one cosmetic product solves few problems at the same time. In this way, the pollution of various packaging is reduced, and the sometimes rather complicated self-care process is simplified. 

We currently offer three types of cosmetics and skincare products in our e-shop – Silk Balm, Face & Body Cream, and Cooling Gel, all of which are united by the highest standards, independent testing laboratories and love for the planet. We have found one of the best ways to express our gratitude for nature and its healing strength, so each product, depending on its container size, contains at least 150 mg of CBD. Having excellent anti-inflammatory properties, CBD is beneficial not only internally but also externally as it helps to control certain skin disorders such as acne.

Our products with no harmful additives are perfect for each skin type, loving and pampering them all equally. The skin is given an external beauty; it is moisturized, smooth, but at the same time, it is taken care of at deeper layers as well – our products nourish the skin, soothe muscles, reduce inflammation, pain, and promote skin cell regeneration. The added ingredients are only organic and act synergistically, providing the skin with vitamins, balancing sebum secretion, fighting specific skin problems, and restoring its elasticity and firmness.

However, each product has its uniqueness and slightly different uses. Silk Balm is suitable for helping treat insect bites, light burns and frostbite (for more severe cases, seek immediate medical attention), can be used as a lip balm. Face & Body Cream, due to its relatively oily texture, is a great helper in the wintertime as it moisturizes and protects the skin, quickly absorbing into the deeper skin tissue. Cooling Gel is intended for athletes and those who lead an active lifestyle because as it has a cooling effect; the gel is perfect for after the workouts to relieve sore muscles and tense body.

Too long, didn’t read? Now in our e-shop, we offer three categories of hemp wellness goods: CBD Oil Drops, Paste, and Cosmetics. In total, we currently offer twelve different products that differ in their cannabinoid concentration, cannabinoids themselves, texture, and uses. Striving for the harmony between us humans and nature, we strive for synergy and supplement our products with natural ingredients to further enhance their positive effects. Besides, all our products meet our approach – sustainable, responsible, cruelty-free, vegan, and highest quality products.

Meet our Brand - Unique Approach to Healthier Living

Over a year ago, we started a brand you know now. Since then, we have successfully expanded our team from several people and have become an international company. Uniting many different souls, we all share a passion for a healthier life. We are more than excited to be brought together a large community of people who admire and value nature and hemp powers and want to lead a more sustainable lifestyle. We dedicated the entire month of May to introduce you to our brand, the products, and the team which drives Biomedicanna and the love for hemp wellness forward. Today we will tell you all about our unique and nature-friendly approaches to cosmetics and other goods. 

--

Those who have with us all along, and those who have joined this fantastic community recently, should have noticed that we often repeat certain phrases on our blog and social media. We are dependent on nature, so its suffering also affects our quality of life. We are constantly looking for ways to help nature and ourselves; therefore, we emphasize sustainability, environmental friendliness, natural and organic materials and products that meet only the highest standards. 

Being honest, you have probably heard these words from many different businesses; however, we cannot be compared to others. In our 50th blog, we will look at the five most important aspects and features of Biomedicanna that set us apart and beyond other brands. 

Only the Best

One of the several reasons we started this company was that we were not satisfied with the quality of similar goods. As individuals, who want to live healthier, we paid a lot of our attention to what we were putting in our bodies and skin. If you decide to closely read at least some of the labels of beauty and wellbeing products you own and use every day, you probably would be surprised about the number of strange ingredients and various additives found there. Besides, the origin of most of the ingredients was unclear.

Since day one, we promised ourselves to provide customers only with products made from materials grown in certified farms following responsible practices. Using the best seeds, monitoring their growth and applying the most innovative methods, we have achieved outstanding results, yet we always strive for even higher levels of perfection. Having already invested a lot of our resources into research, we seek to improve the quality of manufacturing processes and products. The highest quality is our top priority making thousands of people all over the world healthier and happier while at the same time working tirelessly to offer them products we would not be afraid to use and recommend.

Responsibility to Life

Being a relatively young company does not stop us from seeing how human-made objects and processes change the appearance of nature. With billions of tons of unrecyclable waste dumped in landfills, and products and practices themselves hurting the living world, every little step towards the goal of a cleaner, safer, and more sustainable living counts. Every year we experience more and more negative changes; therefore, we must minimize them and return the environment and climate to their former state. 

We started the brand already knowing how vital sustainable practices would be in our journey of introducing society to the benefits of hemp. Today, we are the company for which this goal has become one of their main driving forces. Eco-friendly ideas are inseparable both from the company’s activities and our individual lives, and for this reason, we all feel a deep connection with our surroundings. Starting with tiny steps, we now make a substantial positive impact on the environment. We dared to resist the standard practices and adopt more responsible approaches despite being less popular. We have a strong opinion about veganism and animal cruelty; thus, we dedicated our work to live in synergy with flora and fauna and defend those who cannot protect themselves.

The Mission to Care for All

We all probably noticed how many products everyone has to consume to take proper care of ourselves, both internally and externally. On the one hand, the number of products shows how seriously we take our health and well-being. Still, from a different perspective, such everyday habits result in even bigger amounts of waste polluting our planet. Considering how many various chemicals are put into each little bottle of personal and home care products, we all should be appalled by what we put into our bodies and what later enters the drinking waters and soil. Besides, even more harmful substances get released into the air whilst manufacturing the mentioned care products. 

Once forced by society to take care of themselves by any means possible, more and more people nowadays turn to nature and choose products that are friendly not only to man but also to the planet. After experiencing the same problems, we knew we had to be more innovative and tackle them differently. We set ourselves the goal of combining nature and man in one product, which we achieved by offering customers products made especially for this reason. Now we see, there is no better way to immerse ourselves into harmony than maintaining high standards and using the most precious materials, and carefully monitoring the manufacturing process. Keeping up with modern technologies and seeing the actual value of organic resources helps us deliver products that unite both nature and man.

Powerful Equals Raw

We each want only the best for ourselves and our loved ones, but sometimes, the worst things hide behind an innocent appearance. If we look more closely at every little thing we consume, we would be surprised by the number of processing it takes for that thing even to become consumable. Most of the time, it means we are consuming hurtful substances and unnecessary additives, which make us even more sick, unhealthy, and do not benefit our physical and emotional wellbeing. 

From the very beginning, we knew our community would deserve the best, and we saw only one way to achieve – by introducing thousands of people to the hemp. Yet, some introductions cannot be comparable to one another. Therefore, we manufacture and sell only the purest and most potent products, which convey the power of hemp and its beneficial properties. Maybe hemp power is not that tasty as one may expect, but we are proud to bring out its two best features – raw and realness. With many more new product ideas in our minds, we know we would never leave the mentioned aspect behind our backs.

Giving Answers

Before discovering the hemp, we many times felt like we just hit the wall. We are now surprised at how little information was available a decade or several years ago regarding hemp, its components, their properties, and let’s not start talking about growing or manufacturing processes. What now to us feels like a piece of obvious information is still very unfamiliar to thousands of people, and we all probably know what the ‘unknown’ brings. It triggers our fear, and we surround ourselves with stereotypes, which resist us from experiencing never felt before senses.

We stepped into the market with higher quality products offering them at affordable prices, yet we were faced with the fact that many people are still afraid of even trying hemp-related products. We set ourselves several goals to reach, one of them being very clear and open about our work and goods. Every day we go to the infinity and beyond answering people’s questions and inquiries, solving problems and helping them feel better tomorrow than they felt yesterday. Besides selling wellbeing products to customers worldwide, we want to educate and allow them to unlock the true potential hidden in nature and one of the most amazing plants there is – hemp.

Too long, didn’t read? Today we wanted to tell you more about the brand you know as Biomedicanna. In our opinion, there is no better way to do that than to be open about approaches we value the most. There are five main aspects of our business you need to be aware of:

  1. We focus on quality rather than on quantity.
  2. We promote sustainability, eco-friendliness and have all of our products cruelty-free and vegan.
  3. We make sure our products are safe both for you and do not hurt the planet.
  4. We are against using additives in the manufacturing process.
  5. We are your friends, and you can always count on us in the world of hemp.

Zero Waste Living! or How Trash Becomes a Rarity

Spring is accelerating, and every morning we wake up to see more and more greenery and blooming flowers. We are inevitably overwhelmed by the urge to go into nature and spend as much free time as possible breathing the fresh air. However, all the positive emotions are instantly evoked by the view that we also see in forests, parks, near lakes and rivers. That is the trash piling up and polluting our planet together with our bodies. Although the problem worries people worldwide, it is up to each of us to start tackling it. 

New Trend or Life-long Mission?

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure – this saying has been with us for what seems like forever, yet as we mentioned, one person is enough to make a change. Quite recently various social media platforms and people on them started to go crazy due to this relatively new trend – zero waste living. As some, of course, saw this just as another crazy trend to gain more attention, for thousands of people going zero waste is a conscious action they take to free the planet from waste. 

Even though the term ‘zero waste’ was first used only in the early 2000s, this environment-saving practice began way earlier in the 1980s. Back then, ‘zero waste’ was better known as ‘total recycling’ – Daniel Knapp and his wife tried to prove to everyone that all types of waste could be diverted from landfill and reused within the community. They then breathed in the life to the concept by opening a salvation market. A decade later, the same man set up a program to eliminate all waste in Australia by 2010. It formed a strong and successful concept with other initiatives, which now is known as Zero Waste Living. It is pretty amazing to see such an idea evolve and include more and more people each year united to save the planet from over polluting.

Basic Deeds Saves All

If we tried to explain the concept of zero waste living to our grandmothers, we should just say that we are aiming to send nothing to a landfill. The practice includes reducing what we need, reusing as much as we can once things cannot fulfil their original purpose, sending as little as possible to recycling centres, and composting. As all four components constitute the unified zero-waste system, they, of course, should be standard in every people’s lives. However, all should also be aware that recycling is the second to last option as growing consumerism goes hand in hand with mixed materials, which are almost impossible to recycle.

By committing to zero waste living, we generally redefine the system and move from a linear economy to a circular economy. It means quitting the practice of making new materials every time they are needed and then getting rid of them when they don’t. As we connect two ends of a line and make it into a circle, we stop creating materials from scratch because we have plenty of them that we can use repeatedly. For example, various countries have adopted the practice of a deposit-refund system, where people purchasing beverages pay an additional amount of money, usually ten or twenty cents, which they receive back after returning bottles to deposit stations. Even though it seems like a small step, this initiative has already helped free nature from millions of plastic and glass bottles as well as metal cans. Therefore, a cleaner planet and healthier human lives all start with taking small yet incredibly responsible steps.

Same Vision – Different Devotion

We can all leave a positive footprint on earth if we put in the effort and turn all our thoughts in that direction. Yet as expected, people take different paths towards an outcome of clean and unpolluted nature. One of them is more like going backwards than moving forward. Many people would instead continue accumulating vast amounts of trash every day rather than rethinking their practices and making some changes; we can call such people ‘those who do not care.’ Another group of people may genuinely want to reduce the amount of plastic packaging they use but are forced against such a decision. Switching to more ecological, natural and recycled ideas is a more considerable burden for one’s bank account than buying factory-produced cheaper but often disposable items. Indeed, zero waste products are usually sold in small local shops and made from sustainable yet more expensive material alternatives – wood, bamboo, metal, glass, etc. So to say, people who decided to switch to this nature-friendly movement should have bigger expenses in mind.

Even though zero waste living now seems like a well-known practice with a clear goal in the minds of those who are determined to live more responsibly, there are at least two different levels of this sustainable devotion. Moving from a comfortable life using plastic goods to far more responsible consumption may be too much of an extreme change. Therefore, people start with the low-impact lifestyle, which focuses on holistically reducing one’s environmental impact – together with second-hand shopping, plant-based diet and similar practices, people are getting closer to their intention. Zero waste life includes all of the mentioned actions, but it focuses more on eliminating waste, as said. Many are hesitant to devote their life to zero waste as social media is filled with videos and stories of people fitting all of their trash accumulated within a year into a small glass jar. However, only the most extreme cases of a zero-waste lifestyle can be fit into a jar as it is quite a struggle to find all necessary goods unpacked or packed in recyclable materials. Despite differences, all situations are commendable as they add to a safer environment and brighter future of billions.

First Steps are the Hardest 

We all know how much courage it takes to turn your life upside down. Therefore, we encourage to begin with small steps and gradually include more and more zero waste lifestyle practices into everyday life. For this very reason, we decided to help you by giving some tips our teammates swear by switching from unrecyclable plastics to one tiny glass jar containing all of your trash and other natural resources-preserving practices. Let’s begin!

Hobbies. We all can agree on how excellent new books smell: the smell of comfort on the rainiest autumn day. No matter how therapeutic paper books can be, this habit hurts the earth’s lungs – many trees are cut to produce one book, which most people will read only once after buying it. Solving this problem and becoming a zero-waster could be done two ways. One requires you to visit used book shops, search for people willing to exchange books or register for local library membership. All these ideas still give you the experience of holding an actual book in your hands; however, the following tips are more technological. Trees are saved by listening to audiobooks or reading electronic versions on a tablet. 

Beauty. Most of the women wash their hair once every two days or even every day. Despite global quarantine and pandemic shifted their usual hair washing schedule, we can guarantee most of them using shampoos, conditioners and rejuvenating hair masks from plastic bottles. When they are empty, they are tossed straight to the bin and later end up in landfills worldwide. Solid shampoo bars have been available for quite some time, yet they are not that popular as shampoo bottles just for their packaging. Soon we will offer a fantastic solid shampoo with all the best hemp qualities – be patient!

Food. Oh, how sweet it is sometimes to take a day off from cooking and how convenient it is to have delicious food delivered right to your doorstep! Food delivery is a relatively new concept, yet it produces very much plastic packaging, which cannot be recycled and takes hundreds of years to decompose. Again, we can tackle this problem from two perspectives – restaurant and cafes should switch to recycled cardboard packaging and cutlery. As people mostly order food due to craving and impulses, one should be prepared for such situations in advance by filling their freezers with quick-to-made healthy food. Besides, we highly encourage you to buy all of the food in farmers markets – it is both more ecological and cheaper!

Many companies and brands are now changing their strategies to be as sustainable as possible. Biomedicanna is no exception in encouraging our customers to take care of nature; we at the same time are taking care of ourselves – our bodies, skin, mind, and well-being. We are advocating the reuse of items, thus preventing them from entering the landfill, so all of our cosmetic containers are perfect for a second life in your home – pour a bath salt, light a candle or put the jewellery. Remember, love for ourselves starts from loving our surroundings.

Less Is More - Welcome Minimalism into Your Life

Many different changes are continually taking place in nature every single day. Here at Biomedicanna, we believe that people are only a part of this unique system, so we must respect all the natural processes around us and change our lives accordingly, with the goal of not to interfere but to adapt. As we are stepping into spring, we dedicated an entire month of March to highlight the importance of preserving the most precious things and dropping off unnecessary and excess practices. Today we will share our insights on making specific changes both at home and in your lifestyle and focusing only on those things that are really worth it.

--

We consider spring a perfect time for changes – as nature is waking up, we also have to wake up after three long months of winter laziness. However, this does not mean a simple getting out of bed in the morning; emotionally, waking up means making necessary and healthy changes. Some of the things that require the most changing and renewing are our homes after the winter, yet we are certainly not talking about layers upon layers of dust or those nasty cobwebs hanging in the corner. There are vast amounts of unnecessary things in our homes that used to cost us a lot of money and now are just hindering our lives. After all, it is very challenging to say goodbye to them, donate them, sell them, or generally get rid of them.

Nevertheless, these positive changes are necessary, and it is better to make them sooner than later as minimal life is much healthier. Minimalism is a lifestyle that frees us from clothes, appliances or goods which make us feel depressed and emotionally drained rather than joyful. Although minimalism has become more and more popular lately, a much more critical philosophy lies behind this trend – how can giving up things help us feel the fullness of life?

Minimalism - Passion, Mission, or else?

For quite a long time, Minimalism was known as an art, music and architecture style that opposed abstract expressionism and promoted objective, logical, and schematic solutions. Clean lines, geometrical shapes and repeating patterns all moved the focus from work itself to the environment in which it gets positioned, played, or demonstrated. Soon enough minimalism was thought about as modernism as the majority of minimalistic art creations were made out of such materials as concrete, glass, metal, etc. Minimalistic movement gradually grew into the worldwide notion that less is more and throughout the years it, of course, crushed all of the borders and dominated more areas than just visual and performing arts. 

Fashion was one of the first areas to which the minimalistic virus spread. Designers soon started to position fabrics and forms over the functionality (these scales later shifted significantly) and create clothing using only monochromatic tones: black, white, grey. Massive social and political changes accompanied the fashion industry’s shift from an overload of accessories to simplifying everything that gets on the runway or in high-street shops. While we are not going to focus on different perceptions of minimalism in fashion, we definitely must highlight its influence on widely acceptable social practices. With growing consumerism and massive amounts of trash and non-recyclable materials accumulating each day, minimalism has also become a way of life destined to have as little belongings as possible and discover many more noble things.

Minimalism - Emotional Attachments and Decluttering

Minimalism from one perspective may seem like complete nonsense, yet from the other, it is a way to help the planet while at the same time helping ourselves. Being generally described as a way to find freedom, the minimalistic approach suggests people live with as little belongings as possible because it allows them to live in a more spacious environment directly and figuratively. Minimalists refuse to own any excess stuff and choose to invest in themselves and their families, friends by creating precious memories rather than holding onto meaningless possessions.

Nevertheless, this lifestyle does not mean disowning everything or being altruistic - minimalists advocate for a simple but not dull environment. You can still have some necessary belongings, yet you should be willing to get rid of things you have not been using for more extended periods. As nowadays we can rent almost anything for as long as we need, the whole idea of owning those things and paying full prices is just silly.

Many people, not only minimalists, know that personal possessions often cost us tremendous headaches and other problems. Our belongings trap us in a vicious circle of indecision, and the more we own, the more helpless we are. The truth is that unnecessary things clutter both our living space and mind, making us worry and overthink as we cannot think straight about organizing them in real life and our minds. Things around us distract us from everyday tasks and, of course, from quality self-care, making us more prone to depression and other mental illnesses.

Getting rid of everything we have to carry on our shoulders will increase our happiness and free our time, but this process is complicated even for professional psychologists. We are struggling to say goodbye to our belongings as we have individual relationships with them. We emotionally attach to things that we link with emotions and experiences when we should either carry those emotions in our hearts and thoughts or get rid of them at all. It takes a lot of time and courage to cut the chains connecting us to our possessions, but in a longer perspective, it is worth it. 

Minimalism - a Mental Shield from Acquiring Too Much

Minimalism is both a way of thinking and a way of like, because in both cases, we detach ourselves from the unnecessary and leave only those who are worth it and enrich our lives. Yet, we would not have so many things if we did not acquire them in one way or another. Many people still think it is appropriate to bring bulky household items or useless souvenirs as gifts - such pieces will only accumulate dust and use space, but their value is little to none. It is quite hard to say goodbye to gifts from our family members, friends or colleagues as we mentally link such items with the love we get and fear to lose these connections while getting rid of things we neither use nor need. In such situations, we must live as an example as we start gifting others our attention, positive emotions and experiences rather than useless stuff. 

Next, we can buy such unnecessary items ourselves. While we are digging the hole and cluttering our lives, it is much easier to come out of the mentioned situation when compared with getting rid of gifted items. We tend to buy things impulsively without thinking about whether we need them or not. After such shopping sprees, we quickly start to regret purchasing something, yet we stall from returning or regifting items as we link them with our labour efforts to earn money in the first place. Secondly, we start to think we may need such things in the future, so it is better to be safe than sorry and have them despite not knowing exactly when we will use them if we are going to use them. 

Minimalism is an approach condemning consumerism, which is fed to humanity every day through different channels. Various marketing strategies get into our heads and make us think we need each and everything we see in stores or online. However, there are several ways to shield ourselves from acquiring too much stuff, which would eventually complicate our lives. Firstly, we have to shop responsibly and quit making impulsive decisions. Therefore, you should think before buying any more expensive item at least for a week before making a purchase; a week is usually enough to rethink our priorities and make some changes to our shopping lists. If you still feel a great desire and need for a specific product after a week, you should make a purchase, yet if you do not have those feelings, you should leave the item sitting on a shelf in a shop. Secondly, have a monthly or weekly budget and do not dare to go over it! As we shop to mask our emotions, we should wait until we have our emotions and feelings under control to avoid impulsive shopping and unnecessary belongings in our home.

Minimalism - a Way to Say Goodbye and Improve

Not acquiring useless things or trying to do so is one thing and getting rid of them is another. Minimalism, however, takes care of both and highlights the importance of saying goodbye to things you will not need from now on to the future in a very focused and respectful way. You may have seen some videos where influencers share their experiences after rummaging through their belongings and choosing what to keep, sell or donate, and get rid of completely. Even if it may sound like a minimalistic approach, we still are left with plenty of stuff that will not bring any value. It is encouraging to donate particular possessions before paving a way to a landfill for them. It allows us to live more sustainably and eco-friendly; selling things before getting rid of them helps owners gather funds to invest in experiences and emotions worth more than silverware or clothing. 

The minimalistic approach to getting rid of new things is to own as less as possible but still meet your needs. One of the best ways to limit yourself to a certain number of belongings is to gather them all into one place as if you were packing and moving out, and throughout a week, only take what you need leaving unnecessary items in a pile. After a week or one and a half, take all that you have not used and get rid of them – sell, donate, or generally get rid of it if their condition does not allow them to be used for one or another. You will be surprised by how little items you are regularly using versus how many just take up space without doing anything useful. Remember, you should not limit yourself to a hundred or fifty belongings just because professional minimalists do so – start by making small steps to achieve significant results both emotionally and physically. 

Minimalistic approach frees us from unnecessary items which haunt us every day – be brave to say goodbye to them once and for all. Carefully plan and rethink your priorities to live more happily and healthier. Mental freedom is just as important as decluttering your physical environment, yet the first is sometimes harder to achieve. We encourage you to try our products to relax and help yourself develop better and more valuable solutions for your outer comfort and inner peace. 

New Hero in Town - CBD Successfully Kills Bacteria

While in various parts of the world, there are still concerns whether or not we should legalize recreational cannabis, people been long using hemp to heal multiple pains and improve their life quality. However, we could probably count the years or decades back when hemp began living its actual glory days. Technological development helped scientists awaken public confidence in hemp, and now it is used in almost all sectors. Still, the most advanced here is the field of medicine and health. Medical scientists have long been using cannabis to treat various diseases, and quite recently, they reached an exciting achievement.

Many current illnesses ranging from flu to infections gets treated by prescribing antibiotics to the patients. Sadly, some bacteria have become drug-resistant throughout the years, forcing doctors to look for new ways to treat them. Here CBD steps in. 

One of the most recent research done by the University of Queensland’s Institute for Molecular Bioscience and global leaders in pharmaceutical research Botanix Pharmaceuticals Limited has proven successful as CBD killed some dangerous bacteria. Both of the parties state that their collaboration allowed for the quicker research process, ensuring approval and use of the drug to treat patients as soon as possible. 

CBD, which is the main component of cannabis, surely killed bacteria that cause gonorrhoea, meningitis, and legionnaires. Specialists team mimicked a two-week patient treatment in laboratory models to see how bacteria mutated to resist CBD. Yet, findings revealed bacteria were less likely to do so.

Mentioned research paints a positive future for many patients and their relatives. Besides stopping bacterial growth, CBD can kill them, meaning that a new age for treatments has already begun and is nowhere near stopping anytime soon. We are proud of what already has been done and are impatiently waiting for more exciting achievements involving hemp and CBD.

Breathing Does Not Cost Us Anything, or Does it?

A person can survive less than a month without food, about a week without decent sleep, somewhat around three days without water, but only several moments without oxygen. Breathing is essential – three minutes without oxygen is more than enough for our brains to suffer irreversible damage and ruin lives forever. We do everything that is in our power to breathe quality air for as long as possible, yet for some, this necessity is luxurious.

According to the World Health Organization, only one in ten people have everyday access to clean air, and many millions suffer from severe respiratory diseases. We may say that breathing for these people is a possibility for which they have to pay. What are the most common breathing problems? What are the solutions? And Why some many people are sick in the first place?

Why Do We Suffer from Breathing Problems?

There are several significant reasons why each year, more and more people get diagnosed with severe respiratory problems. First of all, some genetically inherit various sicknesses, including breathing problems, so it’s for the universe to decide whether or not we will have to face. For example, cystic fibrosis is a severe disease that causes dangerous lung infections and obstructs pancreas preventing essential nutrition. 

We might get acute respiratory problems and have deep trouble breathing because we breathe polluted air; that’s mainly why we usually see so many Japanese or Chinese people wearing masks in public places. Even though we can’t see pollution with the naked eye, small harmful particles together with oxygen get in our airways, build up, and increase our chances of allergies, asthma, and lung cancer. 

Lastly, our lifestyles can make a massive impact on our health, so our habits can also cause breathing problems. Everywhere we go, we see signs ‘smoking kills,’ and yet we are rarely ready to give up this addiction, which kills around half a million people each year. Cigarettes and cigars contain many different toxic materials so both smoking and breathing fumes can result in shortness of breath, strokes, heart attacks, and, of course, mouth and lung cancer. Despite mentioning only three reasons that cause respiratory problems, there are many more factors that we just did not have time to discuss more thoroughly.

How Dangerous Respiratory Problems Are? 

Even though several different factors influence our breathing quality, some outcomes – respiratory problems – are more common than the others. Getting diagnosed with pulmonary oedema and pulmonary embolus means either fluid in your lungs or your lung artery is blocked. Like the latter disease, bronchitis indicates blocked or narrower airways, meaning there is not enough oxygen to ensure smooth organs' functioning.

Another common respiratory disease is pneumonia – lung infection – which is often caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi and leads to high fever, chills, shortness of breath and painful cough. Lung cancer is, without a doubt, one of the most severe and dangerous respiratory sicknesses. Besides, it is the deadliest type of cancer for both genders. Coughing with blood and chest pains can indicate lung cancers' beginning and growth, but it can only be treated with chemotherapy and surgery if the tumour has not spread.

Although asthma is not the most severe respiratory illness, it is the most common one among children and young adults – one in thirteen people in the world is asthmatic. Despite varying symptoms, asthma often means narrowed and swollen airways, which calls out dangerous attacks and can lead to a quick death if not controlled. If taken seriously and treated professionally, asthma is less risky; however, no medication can cure asthma, yet.

How Can We Usually Treat and Control Asthma?

As mentioned, asthma cannot be cured, but its rate requires immediate reactions. Asthma prevention begins with diagnosing sickness as soon as possible; tests include lung function measuring, physical exam, allergy and imaging testing, etc. After diagnosed, doctors usually assign a specific category of severity and begin the treatment process. Asthmatic people use various medications to prevent attacks and control them. 

As an unexpected asthma attack can quickly end a patient's life, all drugs react immediately and ease the usual symptoms – shortness of breath, chest pain, coughing, etc. In most cases, asthma medication comes as inhalers, which patients have to breath-in regularly, for example, each day or once a week. However, emotions and environmental factors can trigger asthma attacks; in these cases, asthmatic patients must have different inhalers on hand at all times.

Although some countries compensate for asthmatic patients' medical expenses, some still have to pay those bills themselves. Different medications come at a different price, and this subject can vary from country to country; therefore, something as simple as breathing for some can be quite an expense. Medical professionals and academicians try to develop new and more effective asthma treatments; however, their research mostly involves developing new drugs to ease the symptoms rather than cure the overall problem.

What Will be the Future of People with Asthma?

Even if medications cannot cure asthma, technological improvement paints a positive picture for asthmatic patients – new devices and programs to monitor attacks, of course, new ways to prevent them from happening in the first place. For example, we mentioned that stress and anxiety could trigger more severe asthma attacks; thus, they would be more dangerous. CBD Oil has proven helpful to lower the stress levels, reduce anxiety, and decrease depression, - people diagnosed with asthma have been using this natural and organic product to improve their physical health and mental health. 

Other asthma treatments are also available for people without this diagnose. For example, there are many different medications and vitamins available in inhaler form – they can help people have more energy, fall asleep more easily and faster, lessen mood swings, focus, etc. Natural hemp oil is known to have similar abilities, so – get ready for some great news – we are trying to create such a product ourselves to help you feel better! Be patient!

Breathing is essential, but for some, it is more vital than the others – breathing difficulties not only can cost money but also life. Even if we cannot control our chances of getting diagnosed with respiratory problems, we can devote our lives to battle them in the most effective ways. Modern technologies and medical progress in on asthmatic patients’ side – and we are with them as well.
