New Years Resolution: Use CBD For Muscle Building

Happy New Year!

Like  most people, you may be thinking about New Years Resolutions.  The most common of these is all about getting back to the gym and getting “fit.”  If you are in pain or are easily fatigued this be daunting and discouraging.   According to our friends at (a trusted resource for Illinois MMJ patients) , CBD may be useful for muscle building for a number of practical reasons. “Building muscle and maintaining a healthy weight are investments in your wellbeing.  By dedicating yourself to a healthier lifestyle, you can improve your stamina and strength as well as your self-esteem. The process of bodybuilding,  however, is a massive undertaking, which is why many gym-goers use dietary supplements to boost their energy and reach their muscle building goals. Many, however, are turning to a more natural supplement that offers a multitude of benefits -cannabidiol (CBD).”  Why build muscle? To burn fat.

Studies show: Cannabidiol CBD decreases joint inflammation by 50%

You may be wondering why CBD helps in this way for gym-going people.  Cannabidiol CBD works by connecting with the endocannabinoid system in the body which among other things, regulates the body’s metabolism and appetite. While it does this, it also improves the mindset and energizes the body – keeping the mind and body active in a gym setting. Also, cannabidiol CBD improves the sleep schedule and decreases pain.  Additionally, a significant benefit of cannabidiol as a supplement is that it lowers the stress level by decreasing cortisol levels that slow down muscle growth. High levels of cortisol indicates stress or excessive caffeine consumption -which can effect performance at the gym. “By lowering stress levels with cannabidiol CBD, you can focus on your muscle building goals versus worrying about meeting them,” says With the increase in sleep satisfaction from cannabidiol CBD the body works its own magic of healing and rebuilding minor muscle tears.  If joint inflammation is the matter in need of attention, cannabidiol CBD is more effective  than fish oil supplements. One study cited that CBD reduced inflammation by 50%!  So if you are coping with pain from an old injury, CBD can help to lessen it making time at the gym working out more enjoyable. (Reduced inflammation = less pain.)  Finally, CBD also helps with energy by regulating blood sugar levels allowing you to power through a work out!

Add Cannabidiol CBD supplements to your workout regimen in 2019!

So to recap: Cannabidiol :

  1. Regulates metabolism & appetite
  2. Improves Mindset & energizes
  3. Lowers stress level (by decreasing cortisol)
  4. Improves sleep satisfaction
  5. Reduces inflammation
  6. Regulates blood sugar
  7. Relieves pain

So with all of these benefits, it is clear that Cannabidiol CBD is worth considering as  you plan for your new and improved 2019 healthy lifestyle!

Earthquake Preparedness and Anxiety

Strange and interesting times we are living in – don’t you think?!

Aside from the ongoing political chaos and turnover, a lot of global change is underway.  It seems like most Americans are oblivious to this due to their insulated lives keeping them protected and most don’t follow international or science news.  Personally, I like to keep an eye on everyone everywhere – simply because I consider myself a citizen of the world.  My favorite way to do this subtle surveillance is by using a wonderful tool that works in a real time.  Check it out:

Apologies in advance to anyone who is “triggered” by this sort of content.  Anxiety is common when matters such as Earth Changes and Earthquakes are brought up in conversation.  It is, however, the responsibility or every individual to be prepared for anything.  My recent research on What people are worried about indicated that most Earth Humans are unsurprisingly self centered.  Concerns and worries seem mostly to be about such things as employment and relationships and aging.  Also common is worry about the health of pets.  An easy supplement to try for both people and pets is hemp based CBD! Pets have worries that we can only imagine as caregivers – but you certainly recognize anxiety when you see it in Cats, dogs and Horses! Addressing the physical symptoms of these worrisome feelings is now in your power as humans. If your worries are more focused on the direction of our Country (here in the United States of America) be sure to surf over to the Big Papa Foundation action page to see what you can do to take action and make a meaningful impact.  Action leads to comfort and scratches the anxious itch you may be feeling.
