CBD and Autumn – How One Complements Another?

Autumn has officially come into our lives. The weather is getting colder, and days are getting shorter as we speak. We are also getting more and more rain each day and new responsibilities and tasks from our work or university. Although for many, autumn begins when students go back to school after the summer holidays, we consider the autumn equinox to be the real beginning of this season. Usually, until the autumn equinox, we are pampered by quite pleasant and warm weather. Still, as we tear off another page of the calendar, the whole world seems to start to fall. The autumn abyss leads us to the inevitable winter. However, we still have about two months to go before the first snowflakes start falling from the sky, and everyone is overwhelmed by the psychosis of Christmas.

Still, there are many issues and problems to be resolved before fully enjoying the autumn season. It brings us lousy weather that makes you forget how to smile and new responsibilities that shake up the whole summer routine and make you feel stressed and anxious. However, not everything has to be so bad… Today we will share with you five tips on how cannabinoids can help you endure all the misfortunes of autumn and safely prepare for winter snow!

Stronger Immune System

Winter is coming, but before it begins, we must overcome all the challenges facing us in the autumn season. One of the biggest and probably most disliked autumn’s attributes is terrible weather – rain, wind, and cold. Living in such a climate zone, each year, we face unexpected temperature fluctuations. Moreover, in the fall, the air temperature can change almost three to four times a day. When you get up in the morning, you may feel the chill. Still, later the same day, you may be enjoying sunshine only to fight the strongest winds in the evening when the thermometer column will fall closer to zero.

The temperature dances really test the strength of our nerves and an immune system like no other. As soon as the autumn begins, we must be prepared to face all the challenges that can disrupt our lives and health in one way or another. Since this season is quite widely known as the ideal season to catch a cold or flu, you should start prepping your immune system ASAP. We recommend trying CBD Oil Drops that will help you prepare your body (and thoughts) for all-weather ailments and temperature challenges effortlessly and naturally. Take CBD Oil Drops in the morning and evening every day, and you will be able to enjoy dancing in the rain without worrying about how you will feel the next day!

Calmer Mind and Relaxed Soul

Increasingly shorter days and gloomier weather don’t add much joy to our lives. Suppose we add to all this negativity the stress we feel at work, school, and home. In that case, we could feel like winning a jackpot, only not full of money, but emotional health problems. Anxiety, frustration, stress, and depression are the constant companions of autumn, who come into our lives without any warning. It depends on us how long these ‘guests will stay.

There are many ways to return to a normal and calm rhythm of life, but it is necessary to keep in mind that not every piece of advice works similarly. In these situations, be sure to find an optimal solution for yourself. Still, specific methods can help many, no matter what experiences they have daily. CBD Oil Drops are widely used to help the body relax, calm down, and rediscover the balance of body and mind after a long time. Everyday life does not have to be stressful and complicated, so CBD will help you maintain a positive mood and attitude to life and help you cope faster and better with daily work or study tasks.

A Good Night’s Sleep

Autumn brings darkness to our lives, which we will have to endure throughout the winter as well. Seasonal changes can also disrupt our normal sleeping cycle; we may feel tired and start yawning way earlier than going to bed. Talking about the morning, getting up when it’s still dark outside is unbearable harder, and just think of how cosy it is to spend the morning in a warm bed. Still, jobs are jobs, and they should be completed after having a good night’s rest. It is no secret that our body requires at least 7-9 hours of sleep to function, but our nighttime must start around ten in the evening. By following this advice, you will get up rested and full of energy. Just one thing remains – how to rest when the early night is not the case?

Problems that lead to poor sleep can range from an uncomfortable bed, too fluffy pillow, or just a loved one snoring too loudly. Although sleep researchers associate declining sleep quality with stress, true causes of sleep problems can lie much more profound and be more challenging to solve than just changing the mattress. Regular and responsible CBD consumption can help you sleep better and ensure a quieter sleep at night, less waking up and sweeter dreams. In the morning, you will wake up feeling fresh, it will be easier to function, and you will have more energy to implement all the crazy ideas that day!

Heaps of Energy

During cold and dark seasons, it is much harder to get out of bed or go to work and exercise. While the New Year is famous for being a great reason to start visiting local sports clubs and thus prepare for the summer season. Wait, let’s just stop for a minute and think – is it really the case? The truth is that sports are needed here and now, and not just to maintain good body shape. Exercise and sports contribute significantly to better form and well-being. Still, sometimes we just don’t have the strength to move forward…

We all know well that we need the energy to perform various body functions, and we obtain the power through the food we eat. For this reason, the first thing you need to review and make sure it is appropriate when you feel down in the diet. Do you have at least five fruits or vegetables every day? Do you drink enough water? It also matters how we eat – whether we rush, use mobile devices, but so does the energy value of food. You can enrich your daily diet by mixing CBG Oil Drops in your morning smoothie or various recipes. It will allow you to feel energetic and persistent in storming all the difficulties. You will also be able to concentrate better and feel more powerful, so CBD Oil Drops are perfect for all kinds of people – even professional sports players!

Soft, Glowing, and Healthy Skin

No matter how hard we try to figure out what the autumn cold and wind are compatible with, we know that it is in no way consistent with smooth and delicate skin. Wind and cold are two of the worst things that can happen to our skin, which have been exposed to the bright sun almost all summer long. After a warm summer holiday, the autumn causes a significant shock to our bodies. This is perfectly reflected in our skin – it itches, we get scaling patches, rashes, and pimples. Does it sound scary? What if we say that this is just the beginning, and we must wait for the winter to experience even more complicated skin issues?! It is, therefore, necessary to start preparing our skin for the cold period as soon as possible.

To prepare the skin for autumn, we recommend using CBD Premium Skin Cream, which moisturizes and protects the skin from various inflammations and environmental damage. Also, some new cosmetics will soon appear in our store, which we believe will become your favourites in no time! In addition, mix some CBD Oil in your relaxing bath – your skin pores will open and allow CBD Oil to benefit your skin! Besides, there is no better time to try Cooling Gel than in autumn. You will quickly forget the bruises and feel your muscles relaxing after a hard day at work, university, or after sports training.

We are happy to enjoy the last rays of the sun and dive deep into new responsibilities with loads of energy and enthusiasm. It is good to remember summer when you know you’re ready to greet the fall.

Too long, didn’t read? Autumn brings not only joyful emotions and the aroma of pumpkin pies to our lives. In autumn, we experience much more stress, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, and various other health disorders. We could avoid all these thanks to cannabinoids! Use CBD Oil Drops to improve sleep quality, get rid of gloomy thoughts, strengthen the immune system. Choose CBG Oil Drops to have more energy in the morning and throughout the day. As the weather cools, do not forget to take care of your skin by choosing natural and organic CBD cosmetics.

Time to Put the Coldness Aside - Back to Nature!

Spring is by far the most exciting season for all of us working at Biomedicanna. After strongly finishing with the most stressful Christmas period, we spent some time cosily hibernating at our homes and getting to know every centimetre of our sofas. With the winter already behind our backs, we are back in the business with more bright ideas than ever before. As we dedicated the month of March to help everyone experience the rebirth of nature, today we will share our thoughts and tips on making yourself best friends with nature once again after spending what seems like an eternity inside, both willingly and following worldwide health requirements. 

--

With the last bits of snow finally melting away, the spring comes bringing out new adventures and outdoor activities, which we’ve been dreaming to try and experience for the whole winter season. Spring and the return to nature may seem like a usual and yearly practice, but we seem to forget the essentials during the rest of the year. Year after year, thousands, if not millions of people from all across the planet, face numerous mischiefs and not-so-positive surprises carefully planned and masterfully executed by Mother nature as they leave their homes to spend more time in the fresh air. 

However, it is long known that any fresh-air activities increase our brain functions and, therefore, we feel so inspired and energetic, more motivated and full of new ideas. As there are more advantages than disadvantages of spending time outdoors, we just have to be prepared for what is throw at us once we face the spring for the first time this year. Hold on tight as today we will present you four spring-associated negative unexpectedness and how our products can help you hack it!

Insect bites. Even though the summer is when the highest insect activity is recorded, that does not mean bugs will be patiently waiting. With the first rays of spring sunshine, bugs crawl out from the tiniest cracks to annoy us for one more season. We soon will witness bug bites' most common symptoms, such as swollen bumps, itchiness, inflammation, and pain. Although smalls bites may not look like a huge problem, insects carry various diseases, which can irreversibly change people's lives. Ticks can pose a significant risk for humans and our pets as these insects have such diseases as Lyme disease, paralysis, anaplasmosis, etc. While mosquitoes also carry various viruses, only several species found in Europe or the USA can do that. 

One of the easiest ways to prevent bug bites is to plan fresh-air activities accordingly. Many cities and towns use various repellents to keep insects and ticks out from public parks and squares, but if we decide to spend time in woods or exploring natural grasslands, it is up to us to the proper protection and gear. First of all, ask for professionals to help when choosing the right insect repellent as they all are not equally effective. Secondly, wear long sleeve shirts and layer your clothing to limit the naked skin's surface as much as possible. Suppose bugs have already bitten you, use an ice pack to reduce swelling and pain or, better, keep the bottle of our CBD Cooling Gel within an arm's reach. In that case, this product miraculously relieves inflammation and provides a cooling effect to minimise itchiness. 

NOTE. If a tick has bitten you, go to the nearest hospital to have it safely removed. If you have already removed it yourself, keep the tick in a glass container to carry out research and learn whether or not the tick carries out any life-threatening diseases.

Bruises. Spring is the official time for getting back on our back and our feet leaving the cosy sofas alone. As we had spent a significant period safely tucked in our homes, our bodies have forgotten what active leisure means. Therefore, as we come out to spend more time in nature, our muscles are tenser, which leads to almost double the number of casual trips and falls. Everyone knows that before getting involved in any activity, one must warm up the muscles and prepare them for the increased workload. The opposite, of course, also causes numerous bruises, muscle and joint pain, which will quickly ruin the happy spring spirit.

Bruising is the process when the impacts break capillaries just under our skin’s surface. Quickly blood starts leaking out and forms a mark, which changes colour from almost black to slightly yellow before disappearing. It is relatively easy to prevent bruising, yet we can only minimise it rather than eliminate it in a split of a second. To have a bruise as small in size as possible, once we had an impact, we must cool the blood vessels to reduce the swelling and significantly shorten the amount of time the bruise needs to heal completely. While an ice pack might be convenient in such situations, not everyone carries it on casual trips to nature. We strongly advise you to make a bit of space on your backpack or purse and have our CBD Cooling Gel with you wherever you go. 

NOTE. In cases when the impact has been too strong, and the blood comes gushing out of the wound, apply pressure and try to stop the bleeding. Then, go to the nearest emergency room or hospital to have a professional look at your injury and provide you with the necessary treatment and medicine, rehabilitation. 

Allergies. Spring marks new beginnings, and one of them is the beginning of allergy season. We have already covered the topic of summer allergies in one of our previous blogs; however, spring allergies are a completely different sphere to discuss. Various allergic reactions are our bodies’ immune system dealing with harmless substances that found their ways of getting into our bodies. Most of the time, such substances are harmless, for example, dust, mould, pollen, etc. However, our immune system perceives the so-called invaders as harmful and start producing antibodies to attack the allergens. The most annoying thing about allergies is that one may experience it as a tedious and frustrating process of sneezing, runny nose, and sometimes higher body temperature. In contrast, others may experience no side effects of spending spring in fresh air when plants release pollen.

As pollen can travel great distances with just a tiny gush of a spring breeze, the only place we are safe from it is indoors. However, with proper preparation, we can enjoy fresh air and nature without fear of getting an allergic reaction. Firstly, allergy is something only a professional doctor can diagnose, so no one should try to heal themselves from itchy eyes and nose, sneezing or coughing, as these are also the symptoms for many other health emergencies. Secondly, certain medications are a huge help for people with various allergies, yet they can only ease the symptoms and not get rid of the problem itself. On the other hand, the stronger one’s immune system is, the easier and quicker for him or her to produce the antibodies and fight the allergens. Therefore, our CBD Oils Drops Raw (5%) is a perfect product to increase one’s overall wellbeing and have a robust immune system.

Skin problems. Our skin reacts to the tiniest minor changes, so our skin is quite natural to respond to massive seasonal change – harsh winter weather gives up its place for pleasant spring breezes and warmer temperatures. While it is nice to finally spend more extended periods in fresh air without the risk of freezing, our skin has a different opinion. There are at least three problems that our precious skin has to deal with once we step into the new season. Firstly, it is acne breakouts caused by rising temperatures and excessive sweating. Secondly, it is contact dermatitis, but we should not discuss it any further as it is closely related to allergies. Another skin condition is seasonal eczema, which is also caused by seasonal changes – warmer temperatures, fungi, humidity changes, sweat, etc. Besides, spring sunshine can also lead to specific skin problems, but we will discuss this topic in our blogs next month – be patient!

Even though all skin conditions we presented are pretty severe, some of their treatment methods are very simple. For example, a proper skincare routine, including moisturizers, facewashes, serums or masks, can significantly improve one’s skin condition. It depends on the exact skin type, whether specific products will help your skin feel fresher or not. We have an organic and vegan cosmetics line, which connects ecological practices with high-end products. CBD Glide Gel provides much-needed moisture without being sticky and, together with glycerine, gently pampers the skin. On the other hand, CBD Silk Balm nurtures the skin with quality elements, reduces itchiness, and protects the most vulnerable skin layers.

Invisible Danger: I Caught Virus, and Virus Caught Me

Achoo! What if we told you that sneezing is good for your health? In reality, you should not feel embarrassed if a loud sneeze occurs in the middle of an important meeting. Sneezing forces the viruses out of your body and helps the immune system to protect you. But why is it necessary? What can viruses do to your organism if we let them overpower us?

What Make Viruses Special?

Let’s start talking about the nature of viruses from the very basics. The name ‘virus’ derived from the Latin word meaning ‘poison’ – it is the first sign that doesn’t promise anything good about viruses. They are harmful indeed, both to humans and animals, plants, and microorganisms, as viruses need any host cell to grow and multiply. Once they make their way into a living organism, viruses can cause various diseases: measles, rubella, chickenpox, herpes, hepatitis, etc. Even though several of these sicknesses already have been managed as a result of available vaccinations, many of them were fatal for a long time as microscopic technologies were less powerful and, at that time, did not allow thorough investigations of viruses. Technological development gave virology specialists a chance for a closer look at viruses, which were already known to be smaller than bacteria. There are five types of viruses known based on their structure: helical, icosahedral, prolate, enveloped, and complex viruses.

How Viruses Appeared on Earth?

We now know that viruses can be found wherever life is; however, microbiologists disagree when it comes to a single theory about the nature of viruses and how they appeared on Earth. There are three main hypotheses which attempt to explain this topic:

How Viruses Replicate and Spread?

Despite structural differences and contrasting theories about their nature, viruses spread the same way by invading living cells. Usually, cells increase their numbers by dividing in two; however, this does not apply to viruses. The virus starts its replication cycle by first approaching the cell and attaching itself to its membrane – this process may sound simple, but viruses are quite clever as they do not approach cells in which they would not be able to replicate. Later, the virus penetrates the membrane by traumatising it, enters the host cell, and starts releasing viral genomic nucleic acid. After this, the actual replication starts, and the genome begins to multiplicate – at this stage viral proteins may modify and differ from the original virus. Lastly, the host cell gets killed by viruses bursting the cell membrane, releasing themselves, and repeating the process over again.

Virus replication explains the process of virus multiplication inside one organism, but how viral disease manages to ‘jump’ from one person to another? There are several ways of explaining the spread of viruses:

How Dangerous Viruses are?

Throughout history, humanity faced many outbreaks of numerous viruses, and some of them changed the lives of millions, if not more. Each virus had different effects, most being very dangerous. Let’s take the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak in West Africa – the virus jumped from animals to humans and reached a mortality rate of almost 90% of those infected. Spanish flu, which occurred at the end of the First World War, affected slightly less than half of the world’s population and killed around 50 million. However, not only the number of infected and dead people affects the level of virus’ danger – the invention of a vaccine in many cases is the only way to stop the spread of the virus and minimise the risks. As for rabies, the modern vaccine allows specialists to treat the infected person and save his/her life as a failure to receive the vaccine in time means imminent death.

New Threat – COVID-19

As for now, the world is suffering from never seen before crisis called Coronavirus disease or COVID-19 for short. The society first was introduced to Coronavirus at the end of last year when cases in Wuhan, People’s Republic of China, began to grow relentlessly. However, local lockdown failed to control the scale of the virus, and it quickly spread around the world. World Health Organization (WHO) reports that Coronavirus has already affected more than 41 million people worldwide, of which 1.1 million cases resulted in the death of a patient. The most common symptoms of this virus are fever, dry cough, and fatigue, whereas symptoms such as loss of taste or smell and muscle or joint pain effects are less common. Even though virologists all around the world claim that society needs to learn to live with COVID-19, only vaccines can prevent the increasing and consistent spread of the virus. Sadly, there is no approved vaccine yet, so billions of people have to rely on other precaution methods, such as wearing masks, practising social distancing, avoiding crowds, cleaning hands, and coughing into a bent elbow or tissue.

How to Avoid Catching the Virus?

Besides already mentioned and successfully working self-protection techniques, we must not rule out the importance of the immune system in the fight against viruses. The immune system is our organism’s defence against all kinds of invisible threats; thus, strengthening the immunity should be everyone’s top priority. One of the most common ways to intensify one’s immune system is by consuming immunity-strengthening foods through a daily diet: lemons and other citruses are a source of vitamin C, which increases the immune system’s effectiveness and has antiviral abilities, fish such as salmon or trout are considered best sources of vitamin D, which helps maintain the balanced immune system. Various additives and store-bought supplements also contribute to the protection and health of our body; however, natural products are way safer to consume. We advise choosing CBD products , which not only may reduce levels of anxiety, relieve depression but also improve the immune system. Versatile CBD oil drops  are gaining their popularity in the fields of strengthening the organism and ensure overall well-being. Different CBD products may have exceptional strengths and abilities depending on the exact formula, but organic materials used in the production process and responsible practises unites them all.

Viruses, the same as bacteria, are dangerous and almost impossible to eliminate permanently. Societies throughout the world must commit to changing everyday habits, which gets practised for a greater good – safety and health of billions. As the journey to safe and long life begins with us and our immune systems, every piece of effort counts.


How to Protect Yourself from the Freezing Cold?

Autumn has already conquered not only our lives but also wardrobes as falling tree leaves and harsh winds make us crave for warm and cosy moments. In reality, the autumn is much more than vivid colours and pumpkins. Sadly, it also means the temperature dropping lower and lower every single day. Morning frost follows cold weather and suggests winter season being just around the corner. Some may say that there is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing, but is it really the case?

Why Cold Weather and Freezing Temperature are Dangerous?

It is no secret that some people may react to the same temperatures differently – one will feel cold while another one will say that the temperature is too warm for him or her to feel comfortable. However, no one tends to argue about the coldness of negative or very low temperatures, which are the attributes of late autumn and usually stays throughout the winter. It is widely known that cold temperatures cause physiological stress and can result in damaged body parts, such as ears, nose, cheeks, fingers or toes, etc. Damaged skin will be quickly covered in painful blisters, and different body parts will go numb and might turn black.

Cold weather makes our bodies lose heat faster than they are capable of producing. Such a condition is called hypothermia and is one of the most common problems which happen to people after being exposed to freezing temperatures as well as icy water. Hypothermia is a real threat to every person, as even as little as 10 to 15 minutes is enough to get frostbites and risk with an amputation of the limbs. Besides, cold temperatures increase the chance of experiencing heart failure as hearts try to work harder to keep us warm but are not able to.

Cold weather sounds scary, right? Well, it does not have to be like that! We will tell you all about how to prepare to face all of the freezing challenges thrown at us!

Strength to Fight the Cold Comes from Within

Medical researchers strive hard to educate the society about the cold and its effects on the human body. They all agree that the healthier the person is, the more easily he or she can cope with low temperatures. Therefore, the fight against the cold begins with one’s inner strength – the immune system. We should think of the immune system as an invisible shield protecting us not only from the cold but also from various viruses and bacteria; thus, strengthening the immune system is very important. However, it is necessary to maintain its power using the right methods.

Probably the most popular way of increasing the immune system’s toughness is including citrus fruits into one’s regular diet. Full of Vitamin C, lemons are natural antioxidants that improve a person’s immune barrier and has antiviral and antibacterial abilities. Besides nutritious and healthy foods, CBD products , and especially CBD oil drops , are gaining their popularity in the field of immune-strengthening at an impressive speed.

The Importance of Hot Fluids

Let’s not assume that sipping coffee on your way to work in the morning is only a fashion statement – it is a ritual of self-care, body awakening method, and excellent protection against frostbite. For these reasons, the reusable coffee cup – eco-friendliness is one of the biggest goals for humanity – must become your loyal companion during the cold season. However, medical practitioners advise opting for tea instead of coffee or choosing hot water and various herbs or berries mix. It does not matter that when you return home, it looks like you don’t need hot fluids anymore – homemade broths are considered not only delicious foods but also medicine, which you must include in your food ration. For example, Jewish Chicken soup is also called Jewish Penicillin that can significantly cut the time one spends being sick. Oral consumption is not the only way how hot fluids can help your body and immune system fight the cold – hot water baths are used widely throughout the world to warm people’s hands, feet, and whole bodies. Hot bubble baths with various extracts and natural oils both help relax and accelerate the functional processes of the body.

Protection Against the Cold from the Bottom to the Top

It’s true that negative temperatures can quickly take over the whole body, so the secret to the best protection against the cold is not letting it grab you in the first place. That means minimising the area of naked skin when going out in the cold and protecting uncovered skin patches as well. You ask how? We answer!

Proper footwear. Various traumas come together with winter frost, and only high-quality non-slip boots can protect you from spending valuable time in the A&E department of your local hospital. Yes, high-quality winter shoes can sometimes be expensive, but once you invested your money into them, you will surely be safe from trip and slip accidents. Keeping feet warm and dry is the key to a safe winter season as urinary tract inflammation, and kidney problems often start with soaking-wet shoes and socks after you did not see that puddle.

Layering clothes. The bigger - the better does not apply to dress up for the cold as here the number one rule is to layer outdoor clothing. Before going outside, you must protect yourself with at least 3 to 4 layers of clothes, starting with a long-sleeve shirt, jumper, thinner jacket, and, preferably, an eiderdown parka coat. For the bottoms, we advise you to wear thermo-leggings or pantyhose and warm pants on top of them; be aware that jeans material attracts the cold, so you should leave this piece of clothing for the higher temperatures.

Skin protection. Logically thinking, only our faces are left uncovered without any clothing during freezing colds. Although we can choose to wear a full-face covering ski-masks, we rarely to never do so. In such cases, it is necessary to maintain the richness and oily skin texture and to create moisture barriers between our actual skin and the frost. We recommend you try our new Extra-Rich Face & Body Cream  against cold, which provides excellent antioxidant protection and also has anti-inflammatory properties. Besides that, this best winter cream is safe for people with oily or acne-prone skin. The good news does not end there - one of the key cream ingredients is CBD!

Life-saving accessories. Every season is better with the right stylish accessories, but it is even more advantageous if they can save your life or at least improve overall well-being. It is nice to think about these three accessories – gloves, scarf, and hat – as some winter protection trinity as they are valuable both individually and complement each other. Gloves are a must to protect fingers from the cold as limbs get the frostbite way faster than other body parts. Big and fluffy scarfs safeguard throats from inhaling cold air into one’s lungs and causing bronchial irritation, cough, and shortness of breath. A warm hat shields the head and protects the brain from such problems as confusion and loss of orientation, which usually leads to far more complicated issues like hypothermia.

No season shows up unexpectedly, but cold weather can do just that! When it comes to strengthening your immune system, it should become your lifetime goal – a strong immune system means protection from many, often invisible problems. Besides that, you should always carry with yourself rich cream against the cold and a reusable cup for hot beverages – these things will protect you from the outside and strengthen from within. Even though you cannot take your whole wardrobe together with yourself all the times, have some outfits at home prepared in advance, so when you see snow outside your window, it will take you less time to get ready to make snow angels!


Quarantine? Not again! or How Not to Die from Boredom?

Another wave of serious virus rolls through the world and threatens us with a chance of quarantine repeating. The world stops just for us to be safe and healthy, and we must comfortably play our parts of not going to work or social events while having a runny nose. It means working from home and limiting contact with other people to a very minimum. I know, staying closed between the four walls might as quickly drive us crazy as it might force us to die from boredom. How to survive quarantine? It’s simple – follow the tips and tricks we have prepared for you to promote self-care and keep you clear-headed!

Becoming a Book Worm

Let’s admit the fact that some books have been on your reading list for far too long, so quarantine is the perfect time to check off several of them at least. However, it’s also okay not to have such a list or your favourite book. If you are not sure about what genre of books you like, let’s start with some classics. For example, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘Great Gatsby’ will take you back to the roaring twenties where a man desires to reunite with his long-lost love. In the case of a story with a hint of historical spices, choose L. Tolstoy’s ‘War and Peace.’ As you will find this next book at the top of the lists of greatest books of all time, it is worth reading for everyone. J. K. Rowling’s ‘Harry Potter’ is meant not only for kids as everyone may interpret the magic world in his very own way. Books will surely help you to distract thoughts from quarantine!

Tasty Quarantine

Quarantine is also the best time to open different types of books – cooking books! Spending some time in the kitchen cooking can be truly rewarding as you only need some creativity to become the best chef. Ordering home delivery food every day will quickly max out your credit cards, and we’re not even talking about delivered food being cold already. It’s more fun to tie around your apron and roll your sleeves up rather than ordering meals. Believe us - you have every ingredient you might need to make the best meal of your life. In the case of an empty fridge or pantry, you can always count on grocery delivery services available in the biggest cities. However, if you are more of an eater than a chef, we advise you to turn on the TV and watch culinary shows – it’s just a bit sad that TV cannot convey nose-tingling pleasant cooking smells yet!

Unleash Creativity

Quarantine has stopped your complaints about not having enough free time to coming back to your favourite hobbies. It does not matter whether you like painting or playing the violin, whether you enjoy doing puzzles or sewing new pieces of clothing from second-hand materials. Creativity is the only thing you need once you have tons of free time on your hands to spend on what you love the most. Doing arts and crafts is a perfect way to distract yourself not only from depressing quarantine routines but also from stress at work and sleep deprivation, which haunts us when hitting those office deadlines. We encourage you to try out hobbies that you have never tried before – learn haiku, start making flower arrangements, photoshopping, or talking backward - your ideas are not crazy, they are brilliant! Well, just in case hobbies do not work, try using CBD oil to lower stress levels and concentrate better.

It’s Popcorn Time!

The time flies by when we are watching our favourite movies and TV shows. As quarantine awards you with plenty of time for binge-watching the newest comedy or drama series, allow us to share a list of Emmy Award winners that will make you think only about another episode and nothing else in this world! ‘Schitt’s Creek,’ a comedy about a filthy-rich family turning broke, will make you laugh uncontrollably while ‘Succession’ will offer you many surprising plot twists as the story surrounds the media empire owners the Roy family. Even though such TV series as ‘The Good Place,’ ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ ‘Killing Eve,’ or incredibly famous and successful ‘Stranger things’ have not won in the most important Emmy categories this year, they are still worthy of your attention, tears, and guesses of what will happen next. Make sure you have plenty of snacks ready to get you through numbers of episodes, seasons, and shows!

Let’s Adult – Time to Clean

No one likes cleaning dust, hoovering the carpets, or doing dishes in everyday life, but in quarantine, even these chores help pass the time. In reality, it is not that hard to make cleaning more fun – try turning your favourite music up and dancing while you clean those nasty spider webs you’ve been ignoring for ages. Dedicate your quarantine for tidying up the closet as this activity is as practical as it is promoting self-love – you will see all of the clothes that you have and feel good about yourself for achieving it at the same time! Many scientific studies have confirmed that a clean and fresh environment helps us concentrate and encourages better moods. If every corner in your home is now clean, but you still have not reached the peace with yourself, considering trying CBD products as they are a great addition to everyone’s well-being and overall health.

Stay Fit

Quarantine made the majority of us fail our daily move, and step goals as being closed between the four walls mean low activity. Expensive gym memberships will not remotely make your body fit, so it’s only up to you to stay in great shape. Even the morning exercises such as yoga or Pilates will help you highlight the muscles and ensure good health. A healthy and balanced diet also contributes to achieving even better results, which would not be able with exercises only. One of the best being fit trends is green cocktails in which you mix fresh fruits and vegetables. As they are called real energy bombs, cocktails contain a lot of additional supplements and vitamins, including CBD products, which improve the immune system and free you from fatigue after heavy training sessions. Be careful – some types of sports and exercising can do more harm to your body than good, so make sure you find the best way of staying fit!

Conquer the quarantine with these tips and tricks to truly enjoy the long periods at home. Knowing your physical and mental needs is a huge help when planning different indoor activities. Besides all of these boredom hacks, let’s not forget to spend quality time with the ones quarantining together.

10 Tips to Get You Through Autumn Cold!

We all know the stories about autumn being the most beautiful time of the year. Vivid colours and breathtaking scents are indeed unique to this season, but we surely know autumn’s beauty can sometimes be very illusionary. If you fell into one of autumn’s tricks and got sick, let’s not waste any more time and start recovering now. We have prepared 10 tips – what to do and how it helps – to get you through the autumn cold quick and effortlessly!

Tip No. 1 – Warm liquids to soothe throat

You must have seen at least one movie where the main character is sick with a cold and is drinking a cup of hot broth to ease the bothersome symptoms of a cold. It’s a well know practice to sip warm liquids such as tea with lemon or ginger to relieve nasal congestion and soothe the aching throat. There is a long list of herbal teas to help you feel better, but as some natural remedies are not very tasty, you might want to add one teaspoon of money to your hot drink.

Tip No. 2 – Vitamin C to shorten the length of sickness

As we have previously talked about Vitamin C being irreplaceable when strengthening the immune system before the flu season, it also helps to shorten the length of a cold when already sick. Numerous researches have proven the benefits of Vitamin C to our organisms as the regular intake of such supplements can reduce cold’s severity and duration. Besides, Vitamin C can be obtained naturally through various food such as lemons, broccoli, peppers, or spinach, so you may choose to ask your friends to visit a local market instead of a pharmacy for you to strengthen your immune system while staying safe at home.

Tip No. 3 – CBD drops to boost immune system

Keeping up with modern trends, CBD drops is one of the newest and most innovative ways to fight cold. As it has anti-viral qualities, CBD oil is widely used to reduce cold symptoms, irritation, and inflammation. Even though CBD drops has not yet been approved as an official cold medicine, the regular usage of these drops can quickly deal with a runny nose and other flu symptoms. In the long run, CBD oil improves the way the immune system’s memory, thus speeding up the recovery process from various illnesses and putting you back up on your feet quicker.

Tip No. 4 – Warm clothing to boost immune response

Researches have shown that warmer body temperature strongly contributes to the recovering process as it helps fight the cold. It means that it is best to stay indoors when sick with cold as the outdoor temperature is most of the time lower. Besides, it is necessary to wear warm clothes when fighting a cold – fluffy sweaters, wool socks, and laying underneath several blankets helps maintain higher body temperature. As warm clothing is not always flattering, you should not care about being fashionable - being healthy and protecting others is everyone's priority!

Tip No. 5 – Hot bath to ease the symptoms

Frequent hot baths are necessary for your overall health and not only when you catch a cold or have a runny nose. As your body temperature increases, the already runny nose will become even runnier, and normal hydration levels will drop as affected by incused sweating. It is necessary to blow your nose regularly as open nasal canals will help you breathe easier and feel better. We advise you to have a hot bath straight before going to sleep as it also helps relax and maintain high-temperature levels throughout the whole night.

Tip No. 6 – Inhalations to clear up respiratory passages

Steam therapy is a powerful yet simple tool to relieve symptoms of flu or cold. As steam clouds are achieved when water boils, you should combine inhalations with hot bath procedures to save some time. Inhalations enriched with essential oils such as menthol or eucalyptus help loosen mucus in the respiratory system; thus, making it easier to get rid of them and the whole cold and runny nose kind of thing. The steam inhalations itself can't shorten your sickness but they can surely make you feel better.

Tip No. 7 – Humidifiers to add moisture to the air

We all hate catching a cold for one particular reason – it gets hard to breathe as we live with runny or stuffy noses. We can’t say exactly, which one is worse, but the reason for it lies in the air that we breathe. As cold air holds less moisture, our upper airways narrows, and nostrils dry out; on the other hand, moist can helps with coughing or sneezing and eases congestion, but too high levels can result in growing mould, which is another evil. Researches show that the best percentage of humidity is about forty percent.

Tip No. 8 – Balms to relieve cough

Various chest compresses can significantly improve your breathing when applied properly. We advise wearing compressed overnight as balms and oils work both ways – helps with chest (lungs) congestion, relieves nasal passages, and prevents runny nose in the morning after breathing those aromas in your sleep for the whole night. We also advise massaging little amounts of CBD oil or balm into chest skin to strengthen the lungs and the whole respiratory system each night after a hot bath and before the bed. As for some such use of CBD products lowers the intensity of chest pains caused by cough, one can’t argue otherwise if never tried itself.

Tip No. 9 – CBD before sleep to help you relax

One of the best reasons to use CBD products is their relaxational properties. Numerous people using CBD drops daily have said it successfully reduces anxiety and depression levels and also improves the quality of sleep! It also helps to sleep with your head a bit more elevated than the rest of your body as it prevents the runny nose from clogging up. As quality rest is the most important aspect to speed up your recovery, we advise changing sheets more frequently when having a cold and meditating to clear up your mind and fall asleep quicker.

Tip No. 10 – Over-the-counter medicine to fight it all

If tips one through nine have not impressed you, we still have one more trick left up to our sleeve – you can always choose to use an over-the-counter medicine to fight the cold and runny nose once and for all. Many local pharmacies allow you to consult by phone or buy medication online; therefore, the list of the people you had a contact with will be short. As it is necessary to speak with your family’s doctor or pharmacist before taking or buying any medicine, you have to follow their bits of advice as precisely as they are – excessive amounts of various pills might turn out to be fatal.

Runny nose or cold will always try to ruin your plans to enjoy every last bit of autumn sun, so we understand if you hate this season. On the other hand, autumn is not that bad if you know how to deal with its sicknesses quickly and effortlessly. As we wish you a cosy season, we also wish you a strong immune system and a good grasp of tools to create unforgettable and illnesses-free moments!


Brace yourself – autumn viruses are coming!

Perhaps the most beautiful time of the year is just around the corner. Autumn will reward us with nature adorned with all colours, falling leaves, and the smell of freshly baked cinnamon apple pie. As we try to enjoy the last bits of sun and warmth and high temperatures, our plans are disrupted every year by runny noses, nasty coughing, and headaches, which are the most common signs of autumn viruses. How to avoid catching a cold? How to fight off seasonal viruses? How the immune system works and protects us? How to prepare for autumn diseases? Today we will answer these and many other questions – get ready!

Autumn viruses: what are we dealing with?

Seasonal infections and viruses are nothing new as we are more than used to call the upcoming season a ‘flu season.’ The vast majority of seasonal diseases such as cold are linked to being viral and easy to catch from another person, who already complains about a sore throat, coughing, runny nose, and fever. The flu, for example, is an infectious disease caused by a virus attacking one’s immune system as it is compromised.

As symptoms are common for many different seasonal sicknesses, family doctors, practitioners, research performing doctors, and other professionals distinguish a fairly clear timeline suitable for most cases. According to them, cold symptoms such as a stuffy nose, discomfort, sneezing, fever, and body aches take one to three days to peak, and the next days are the worst. Even though a cold usually ends by day ten, it is contagious throughout the whole period of being sick.

Various seasonal sicknesses can affect not only our respiratory system but the whole organism: skin, muscles, internal organs, metabolism, etc. Unnoticed or untreated sicknesses can cause great discomfort as it takes significantly more time to fully recover because our bodies are already too weak at that time as we start using medication or visit the professional doctors.

Our hero – the immune system!

It is easy and quick to start this unpleasant trend of being sick; however, it takes a lot of time and effort to fight those autumn viruses off for good. It’s the immune system that does all of the hard work protecting us every day of the year and especially during the autumn. So, what exactly is the immune system?

The immune system guards our bodies against unwanted threats such as viruses, bacteria, toxins, and infections. It does not mean that you will never be sick if your immune system is indestructible - the immune system guarantees that one tiny virus that gets into your body will not grow to a massive extent and become fatal. However, it is easy to know whether one’s immune system is working as high body temperatures and swelling indicates it.

The immune system depends on billions and billions of defensive white blood cells also known as leukocytes. As they are traveling throughout our cardiovascular system they screen, firstly, our blood for threats, together with other tissues and organs. Once the leukocytes detect invaders, our immune system starts operating and releases special proteins – antibodies, which fight those unwanted and harmful substances.

There are many different threats to one’s body, so the immune system must be equally adaptable to be able to defend one’s organism in any case. The immune system usually develops a long-term immunity, which means that one store information about the attackers and will know next time how to deal with it quicker than the last time.

Vitamins to prepare for autumn diseases!

There are many ways to strengthen the immune system – it’s easy to help your organism to protect yourself and prepare for autumn viruses season once you know what you need. We may be making a big mistake if we fill our bodies with unnecessary substances as excess is as bad as scarcity. Plenty of foods are rich in various vitamins and nutrients that complement our organisms, but we often are not aware of their existence and do not know how useful they are. Let’s expand our knowledge of vitamins that benefit our immune systems!

Everyone must have heard about vitamin C as its intake is one of the greatest ways to boost one’s immune system. Our organisms do not produce or store vitamin C for long periods, so we must ensure a daily intake of vitamin C as they stimulate the generation of white blood cells.

Vitamin E helps our immune system to fight off various infections and viruses; it positively affects the immune system’s cells and makes them more productive. However, numerous studies have shown that the best results are achieved when vitamin E is taken together with vitamin C.

Vitamin B6 supports biochemical reactions, and together with other vitamins from group B, they also help turn food into energy, thus, providing our bodies with necessary nutrients. Vitamin B6 is considered to be that one significant substance that benefits many different parts of our bodies; however, as our bodies do not produce, we need to obtain it from our everyday diets and supplements.

Vitamin D is essential for an effective immune system’s response. Low levels of this vitamin are linked with frequent illnesses and infections, so seasonal cold and flu can be prevented once ensuring sufficient amounts of vitamin D in our bodies. As we can acquire vitamin D from being in the sunlight, now it is the best time to go outside, spend some time tanning, and prepare for autumn diseases in a fun and easy way!

Even though beta-glucans are not vitamins but fibers, their enhancing abilities does just that. Beta-glucans strengthen the immune system, reduces symptoms of fever, and lowers the chances of getting a sometimes-fatal seasonal infection. They also ensure the smooth functioning of our bodies and feature specific anti-inflammatory properties, thus shortening the period of being sick. As beta-glucans are a natural way to improve one’s overall health and well-being, one must include beta-gluten-rich foods into a diet.

People often say that you should think about everything in advance to achieve the best results sometime later. Although the immune system forms throughout our whole lives, today is the day to prepare for autumn viruses season! Stay tuned as more tips to survive the autumn disaster follow next week.

Why beta-glucans are the smartest way to strengthen the immune system?

Many people from all around the world and from different cultures and societies agree that nature is the best pharmacy kit one could ever wish. Starting with your great grandmother and finishing with professional homeopaths, they have long been using natural products and foods to treat and ease symptoms of many illnesses and diseases. However, there is one particular product that is worth more attention to pay – it’s beta-glucans!

What are beta-glucans?

Beta-glucans are a remarkable type of fibers found in many contrasting foods and plants on which its real benefits depend. Even though some of the sources of beta-glucans have been used for centuries, at that time, people were considering the food itself being powerful and having healing abilities; particular interest in beta-glucans came to light only in the last decades of the twentieth century. Now they are widely used for many different purposes and in quite unlike ways: by mouth as food additives or vitamin pills, intravenously as an injection into one’s muscles, or used externally as various skin balms.

Being classified as water-soluble fibers beta-glucans slows down the process of digesting food, so our bodies do not rush to absorb sugars. Besides slower food transit, beta-glucans are partially indigestible; they travel through the whole digestive system. Beta-glucans strengthen the immune system and are safe to use when administered orally in quantities found in everyday foods, so a rich diet is one of the best ways to enrich one’s body with beta-glucans.

Where in nature do we find beta-glucans?

Beta-glucans were first found in the form of sugar hiding in the cell walls of lichens, which is a composite organism that grows based on a symbiotic relationship between fungus and algae. There are some species of lichens that are edible and safe, but be careful as some lichens are poisonous and can happen to be your last meal once they form from Cyanobacteria and releases harmful toxins. People mostly use inedible lichens for clothing, decoration, or dyes creating many astonishing colors.

Shortly after, beta-glucans were discovered in barley and other types of cereals: wheat, bran, and oats. As different types of grains are far more scientifically researched than seaweed or various mushrooms researchers inform consumers that particular species of cereals have different immune-strengthening potential because they contain unlike amounts of beta-glucans. Scientists state that barley is the most beta-glucan-rich type of grain and is followed by oats, which has a slightly lower content of beta-glucan.

You may also find beta-glucans in various Chinese and Japanese mushrooms, particularly maitake, reishi, shimeji, and shiitake. Unlike grains, which have different content of beta-glucans depending on the species, mushrooms have the highest levels of beta-glucan shortly before the spores start to mature. As the timeframe for picking these mushrooms is not long, and scientists have not researched them extensively, consumers must understand that it is safer to eat them in small quantities until more information follows.

Of course, there are more natural sources containing beta-glucans, for example, bacteria, algae, yeasts, etc. Even though the latter has more beta-glucans than mushrooms, they are just as widely used and healthy; the only difference is that you may need to consume smaller amounts of brewer’s or baker’s yeasts to reach the same results as eating cereals or mushrooms. No matter the quantity of yeast-derived beta-glucans that one consumes throughout the meals or as supplements, these beta-glucans are one of the safest and smartest ways to improve one’s health.

What is the value of beta-glucans?

The first widely known and scientifically proven beta-glucans’ benefit to a person’s body was boosting the cardiovascular system. Scientists agree that consistent consumption of grain-based beta-glucans adds up to maintaining a healthy heart and improving cholesterol and insulin levels, reducing high blood pressure (hypertension), and the risk of strokes. Beta-glucans also reduce the risk of type II diabetes and help control blood sugar levels if already diagnosed with such an illness. Different studies argue for how long one should consume beta-glucan-rich foods before the first results may show; however, they do not feud about its benefits.

Beta-glucans also help people dealing with particular skin conditions. Various researches show that routinely used a face cream with beta-glucans reduces the skin flares and itching caused by eczema. Beta-glucans may also reduce canker sores - painful ulcers developing on the soft tissue in one’s mouth or on the gums. Yeast-derived beta-glucans have a distinctive feature of stimulating skin cell response and defending our skin against the pollution from the environment - it also delays the aging process!

Other advantages of consistent beta-glucans use include reducing the symptoms of hay fever and lowering the chances of getting an infection after various surgeries as yeast-derived beta-glucans have specific anti-inflammatory properties. It may also shorten the length of one’s intensive care unit stay as it improves survival rates and overall well-being. Cancer patients use beta-glucans intravenously as an injection; it may extend the life of patients or delay the growth of cancer of some localities when used together with usual cancer-treating medication.

Various studies have shown beta-glucans being valuable in the process of controlling one’s weight. As beta-glucans are fibers, they help people dealing with obesity or having metabolic syndrome - the condition affects about one-quarter of the population of all ages! Including beta-glucans-rich food into an everyday diet can effectively increase weight loss.

Besides all advantages, beta-glucans are mostly celebrated for their ability to stimulate immunity. Beta-glucans strengthen the immune system, ensure smooth functioning, and help one’s body deal with various diseases, bacterial infections, and viruses’ pathogens. Taking yeast-derived beta-glucans, for example, enhance the immune system by activating macrophages, which initiates a fast and incredibly powerful immune response.

Even if you think that all of the benefits of beta-glucans sound too good to be true, you will be able to see and feel for yourself. Hold on tight onto your chair as next week we are introducing an amazing new product to the market – it’s CBD oil with beta-glucans! This incredible combination means that CBD oil will improve your physical and mental well-being at the same time as beta-glucans strengthen the immune system and may ensure the smooth working of your heart.

Attention! Immune system prepares for fight!

The human body is a vulnerable thing: it requires special care and protection not only during the abnormal summer heats but also during freezing winter frosts and other dangers. Let’s admit, it is easy to prepare for and fight off objects and feels that one can see or sense; however, such a process gets way trickier when you must challenge things that are invisible to a naked eye - pathogens. It’s our immune system that does all of the hard work protecting us from dangerous viruses and bacteria, although investing in strengthening it always pays off.

What’s the immune system?

It is easier to think about the immune system as really high and steep stone walls surrounding the castle – the human body. As hostile persons – pathogens from viruses and bacteria – try to enter the castle, they are immediately blocked by strong and invincible walls. However, as time goes by and the walls are exposed to changing weather conditions, they are likely to collapse if unsupervised or show weaknesses, thus needing constant strengthening works and additions.

One immune system – plenty of immunities

According to immunology scientists, in the medical world, the body’s immune system is distinguished in several different segments. All people are brought into this world having innate immunity – pre-programmed body cells that identify harmful substances in a matter of seconds and fight them; it’s the equivalent of using walls for protection that were already there. The adaptive immune system is a complete opposite of innate immunity - it’s a more advanced way to beat pathogens as it can remember them by storing information in itself on how to do it; it reminds building a new wall around the castle.

The adaptive immunity is further subdivided into natural passive and active, and artificial active and passive immunity, which all have contrasting acquiring processes. Natural-passive immunity refers to pregnancy months as a fetus receives antibodies to fight pathogens through the placenta or when nursing. Natural-active immunity forms once the person is done dealing with a live pathogen and forms immunological memory of such a process.

Artificial-passive immunity includes transferring one person’s blood to another, thus forcing one’s cells to share information on how to fight the pathogens to other’s cells. Artificial-active immunity stands for vaccination, after which antigens simulate a possible response to a small number of pathogens, and later knows how to destroy the disease as a whole. However, it doesn’t matter which type of immunity guards your body’s castle - it matters that you reinforce the complete picture of defending walls in time!

What happens once the immune system fails?

If the walls defending the castle fail to stop intruders, the castle itself becomes weak and damaged; immunology scientists divide such a situation into several categories depending on how the body deals with attackers – pathogens:

•           autoimmunity disorder happens when the body’s immune system isn’t capable of distinguishing positive cells from destroyable bad ones and decides to attack both;

•           hypersensitivity is a smart name for the body’s immune system destroying its own harmless cells instead of faulty invader ones;

•           immunodeficiency occurs when the body’s immune system loses its capability to fight or gets compromised by short-term events. Even though some of the cases of immunodeficiency is inherited, modern-day problems - alcoholism, obesity, and drug use - determine the largest amount of overall cases.

Tips on how to strengthen the immune system

Most of the time, the body’s immune system is strong enough to produce antigens and destroy pathogens without harming the actual person. However, as immune systems get weaker and start to struggle to fulfill its task, some immunity-strengthening methods and means are not optional but obligatory.

An average human spends about one-third of a lifetime sleeping – roughly 25 years, so anywhere from 7 to 9 hours every night. As regular sleep routine and quality rest maintain physical and mental well-being, it adds up to strengthening the immune system as well. We advise everyone to re-check their sleeping schedules and ensure a clean, relaxing, and stress-free sleeping environment.

As humans get all the energy needed to support the smooth working of the body from the nutrients, the only way to get them is through consuming healthy foods. Nutritionists advise people to eat a diet that would include foods from every group of the food pyramid. That means mostly eating grains and cereals following by various fruits and vegetables, not forgetting meats and dairy, but abstaining from eating lots of fats and sugars. It is also necessary to stay hydrated as water carries oxygen to one’s body cells and removes toxins from the body.

Scientists agree that about 30 to 60 minutes of exercise – walking, running, swimming, etc. - a day improves the body’s immune system and its ability to fight pathogens from viruses, germs, and bacteria. As it helps maintain healthy body weight and avoid obesity, regular and properly performed exercises adds up to both physical and mental health. Fitness experts also suggest showering under cold water or having an ice bath once in a while as it helps the immune system to fight off any remaining unwanted substances out from the body.

We are educated about the cost of harmful habits and addictions every step of the way; however, scientists recently found out that there are more than quarter-billion people dependent on alcohol in the world. No matter the addiction – alcohol, smoking, or drugs, such practices leaves permanent damage not only on the outside of the body but internally. As it weakens organs to perform their functions, prolonged periods of untreated addiction may result in autoimmunity problems.

One of the easiest ways to improve the immune system is to buy pharmaceutical preparations; however, as there is plenty of variety of vitamins and pills, one can do more damage to the immune system rather than good. As people all around the world pay more attention to what kind of medicine they put into their bodies, a lot of them choose homeopathic and time-proven remedies. There is a saying that nature provides humans with everything it needs, so drinking herbal teas is a logical way to strengthen the immune system, but make sure you know what you are about to consume beforehand!

There is one particular type of means to improve the strength of the immune system, which is only gaining popularity. CBD oil and other products are considered the new black as it has valuable anti-inflammatory features, helps prevent an immune response, and easies some autoimmune sicknesses. CBD oil can improve the way how precisely the immune system remembers harmful pathogens, thus speeding up the future recovery process and ensuring overall physical and mental well-being.

It doesn’t matter which methods you will choose to strengthen your immunity system as this process focus more on consistent efforts and positivity. Although we recommend you avoid saving when it comes to health and its improvement, there are plenty of options of how economically one can strengthen immunity right at home.

What is CBD?

‘CBD – to understand immediately’

CBD or Cannabidiol is actually one of the many wonderful cannabinoids that are found in the hemp plant. CBD oil is derived from the hemp plants flowers and not the seeds making the extraction process a true form of scientific art. 

CBD is a completely natural substance, which has been seen to have many uses and benefits for the human body. Another wonderful fact about CBD is that it has no psychoactive effects, allowing people to use it, have great effects without the fear of getting ‘high’. 

How does CBD work?

CBD just like other cannabinoids work by interacting with the receptors found throughout the human body - in our organs, connective tissues, glands, immune cells, and brain. It is able to do this because CBD closely resembles chemicals that the body creates naturally. This system of chemicals and receptors is called the endocannabinoid system.

In this system there are two types of cannabinoid receptors – CB1 and CB2. CB1 is mainly found in nerve cells, brain and spinal cord. CB1 present in the hypothalamus affecting appetite and CB1 in hippocampus influence memory processing in the brain.CB2 is located in the peripheral nervous system. One of the main functions of this receptor is to keep the body’s immune system healthy by regulating the release of cell signalling molecules. This regulation boosts cell to cell communication and accelerates the movement of cells towards the area of inflammation. 

By stimulating cannabinoid receptors many cannabinoids including CBD are capable of reducing pain and inflammation along with stimulating appetite, boosting rest and promoting sleep.

What are the benefits of CBD?

CBD is being used for many medical disorders such as pain management such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis, depression and anxiety, sleeping disorders, even seizures such as epilepsy and easing cancer treatment symptoms. It is also a great immunity booster with anti-inflammatory properties. 

Lastly, researchers say that cannabis is one of the oldest domestic plants which are used by the human race for at least 10,000 years. Since our bodies have receptors, cannabis experts say consuming cannabis is a natural way of life.
