In an effort to censor people promoting Hemp and its healthful benefits, Facebook shut down a whole bunch of Hemp company’s pages on the prolific platform. They are working now to undo the damage they caused by restoring the pages effected. Have a peek at the letter Mark Zuckerberg received from the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s Commissioner Ryan Quarles relating to this error in judgement and consider yourself informed about the legal realities of hemp.
In trying times like these, with the Government Shut Down effecting so many people it is important to be mindful of the pain and stress people are feeling. During a news conference this morning (January 24th, 2019) a Suicide was mentioned as being related to hardship being suffered by individuals in this ongoing National Crisis. We must all support each other in these difficult moments and remember that help is never far away. Free judgement-free assistance is available at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24 hours per day 7 days per week. Share this number widely and use it as needed. America and the World Need for us to make it through these strange days TOGETHER.
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 marijuanadoctors.com (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.
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 marijuanadoctors.com. 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!
So to recap: Cannabidiol :
Regulates metabolism & appetite
Improves Mindset & energizes
Lowers stress level (by decreasing cortisol)
Improves sleep satisfaction
Regulates blood sugar
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! Below you will see my favorite Cannabidiol CBD supplement & remember – it is THC free and legal in 50 states . Also – it is farm fresh from North Carolina and conveniently available directly from the maker through the image below.
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:
This free public service from Global Incident map displays all detected Earthquakes in truly real time all over the world, meaning that it continuously updated. When you think you feel a tremor – this can be your first res0urce to check! To be prepared for Earthquakes specifically, have a peek at the American Red Cross recommendations conveniently provided at the link below:
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.
Feel free to follow affiliate links below for fantastic deals on Hemp Based CBD products that I know well and trust for treating pain (but come with a nifty benefit of helping with anxiety) and are available in formulations appropriate for our furry family members. Founders Hemp products are a wonderful source of Farm Fresh CBD products that are THC free and legal in 50 states to help you avoid all sorts of worries- while actively addressing your pain and anxiety. Enjoy these any time and remain delightfully sober.
As Thanksgiving draws near and you know that Hanukah and Christmas are nipping on its heels – perhaps you sense pressure. Pressure to prepare for all of these holidays. Pressure to finish up all of your work in time to be able to truly pause to participate in the festivities. Pressure not to be saddened when you are missing a lost loved one – while the Holidays come regardless of your emotional preparedness for them. Grief can truly be difficult to overcome in these times and for many when paired with loneliness it can become downright dangerous. There are no easy answers but the most effective solution seems to be helping others. The best way to help others will be different for everyone. If you don’t have time or inclination to volunteer, donating to a trusted charity can be a wonderful way to help others. Reaching out to those in need will certainly remind your spirit that your kind acts are meaningful and that you are making the world a profoundly better place.
With the most recent tragedies in mind, consider spending a moment researching what you can do at the Red Cross. “Your gift of any amount will save the day when the next emergency strikes. Whether that be help when a house burns down in your community, when someone needs CPR or a lifesaving blood transfusion, or when a family needs to contact a deployed service member in an emergency. Your gift supports the many urgent needs of the American Red Cross.” When you are looking for more to do check out the ways you can act to help your country and community at the Big Papa Foundation action page. There are loads of active petitions to learn about and sign. Without your help – those petitions never make it to the finish line to impose action for the greater good.
When you have addressed all of the holistic ways you can act to alleviate your holiday anxiety, THEN and only then should you attempt to address it with Hemp products. If having to pass a drug test is another source of your anxiety, please be assured that all of the products found through CaseyKeith.com are always THC free- so click the affiliate links for these items with confidence & find the relief you seek. Casey’s favorite item for holiday anxiety this week is Founder’s Hemp Peppermint Hemp Symmetry (250 mg tincture). Conveniently available through the image below.
Top 10 ways to alleviate holiday anxiety:
10. Clean out your closet. Did you hide some gift in there that you forgot you bought?
9. Clean out your pantry. Use the ingredients already on hand to plan your menu and make the cookies you like (or plan for them) This ensures freshness of foods to share and a clean pantry in the new year.
8. Write your holiday cards or your annual letter updating loved ones on what you have been up to. A low key way of reaching out and keeping you busy with a festive task.
7. Volunteer at a local shelter or soup kitchen on Thanksgiving or a day the works for their schedule and yours.
6. Make a donation to your local food bank.
5. Seek out an Angel Tree at the mall (and choose a wish to make come true).
4. Toys for Tots – find your local donation center or make a donation.
3. Call your Mother/Father/Best Friend/Dear Aunt
2. Go for a walk around your block and take note of the crispness of the air and the beauty of the trees.
Have a slice of pie at the local diner. Consider joining a nearby gym but wait for the New Years specials before spending a dime. 😉

The legalization of Marijuana is sweeping the continent, but that doesn’t mean in is a good idea for everyone to partake of this recreational or medicinal herb.
