CBD Oil Formulation

When shopping for Cannabidiol Oil online it can be hard to tell what brand to go with, so how can you tell the difference between a great product from a bad one?  Take a look at the label to see what is used in it and the concentration of CBD.  Our CBD Oil starts off with only the purest, highest quality CBD Hemp Oil Extract, then we add a splash of a couple of other natural oils you can pronounce to make up our full formula.

How about CBD concentrations?  This is where things get confusing if you have been looking at other oils you have probably noticed the concentrations of CBD range from 20 mg per 30 ml to around 2,000 mg per 30 ml.  You want to make sure you are buying a product that has enough CBD to provide the benefit you need.  If you are unsure please reach out to us, or consult with your physician first.

How to Take it

Unfortunately, due to FDA restrictions we can’t advise individuals on how much CBD Oil to take for specific conditions.  Most people end up taking 2-4 servings per day, during different times of the day.  Serving sizes are listed on the individual bottles and vary from 5mg (250mg bottle) to 15mg (1,000mg bottle). The CBD Oil bottles come with a dropper, so it is easy to adjust your serving size accordingly.

Some individuals require more or less than described above, as everybody is different. The key is to listen to your body and adjust accordingly.

Lab Testing

It does not matter what type of CBD product you are looking at, you need to ensure the products are lab tested in a certified lab that frequently tests for Cannabinoids (including CBD) in various products.  This is to make sure you are getting what you paid for and the results are reliable, as there are nuances to reliably testing CBD Oils.

We transparently post all of our lab results on our lab results and product pages.

My Nganic CBD Experience

Though it seems to be a controversial topic (mainly due to misinformation about CBD), I truly feel fortunate to have access to the many medicinal aspects of the hemp plant. From taking this CBD oil under my tongue a few times a day, I get no “high” feeling, no psychedelic effects. Instead, it’s calming and relaxing while also helping me mentally dial in at the same time.

I’ve heard from many former coworkers and colleagues that CBD has helped them heaps with their anxiety, stress and inability to fall asleep. I would not categorize myself as someone who deals with regular anxiety, but I am always searching to have a calmer disposition; one that allows me to handle whatever life throws at me (without completely losing my marbles).

After using this CBD oil for only a few days, I could notice a positive difference in how I felt. I actually like taking CBD as a part of my morning routine to start my day right. I feel like it puts me in a more even keel headspace. It also happens to pair well with morning meditations if that’s your cup of tea. The peppermint flavor of the oil I have is super easy to throw back (I do half a drop under my tongue + let some absorb for about 10 seconds before I swallow).

For the first time today, I added CBD to my coffee and the word perfection comes to mind. The peppermint was delicious with the java flavors and I enjoyed making it a part of my cup of coffee even more than just taking it by itself.

I appreciate Nganic’s practices and their noticeable commitment + passion for high quality CBD oil. Crossing paths with this brand makes me excited and reminds me that there are people out there creating beautiful products that truly help people live a more balanced life that feels good.

Purity Organic Coffee Review: Lab-Tested, Mold-Free, Pesticide-Free, Mycotoxin-Free (+ Coupon Code!)

Purity Coffee

About:

Purity Coffee is completely focused on health from bean to bag.  We roast for the highest levels of antioxidants and the lowest levels of acrylamide.  Our coffee is lab-tested to be free of molds, mycotoxins and pesticides. One of the easiest changes anyone can make to their diet is to switch to healthier coffee!

Over 19,000 studies have shown that coffee is beneficial for general health and longevity and specifically for heart disease, liver disease, Alzheimer’s and type 2 diabetes.  Coffee is the richest source of antioxidants in the western diet and contains over 850 compounds (that aren’t present in tea or those sugar-filled caffeine energy drinks).

My Experience:

Coffee is such a massive part of our culture. I’m a big fan. I’m also super passionate about letting you guys know about brands that are growing coffee with massive regards to quality + purity. If you read thru their mission above, it’s easy to tell that they are doing coffee with the utmost regard for the health implications. I have a lot of appreciation for this. It may come as no surprise at this point, but it’s key to realize that (like food), not all coffee is grown equally. Most of it is grown with profit as the main goal, versus health and vitality. Thus, most coffee consumed is rife with pesticides and mold, due to the less than optimal growing conditions and processing practices.

The reason it’s important to me to have organic coffee is because it’s something I consume 6-7 days out of the week. Because I consume it so often, the quality is important to me. In general, that’s my rule of thumb with buying things organic. I don’t fret if 100% of what I consume is organic, but if it’s something I consume daily, then it moves high up on my priority list to seek an organic option.

We have a great Burr grinder at home so we opted for their bags of Whole Bean coffee, but they also have a K-Cup option for Keurig users. This coffee has a rich, smooth taste from the darker roasted beans and is delicious black or with your favorite healthy additives (we love superfoods and plant based milks).

I’m generally just very stoked to know about this brand. We don’t buy a lot of bagged coffees because we do a lot of our own roasting of green coffee beans at home (and most bagged coffees are cruddy and/or it’s hard to tell what’s in them and how they’ve been grown). However, Purity Coffee is changing how we view coffee. It will now be my go-to for our house and a great option for gifting to friends and family.

Planetbox Eco-Friendly + Sustainable Lunch Box + Food Storage Containers Review

I’ve always been on the look out for reusable, sturdy food storage options that don’t require me to use disposable plastic bags and give me the freedom to tote food/drinks around with me effortlessly. Planetbox totally fits this bill and then some.

About Planetbox:

  • Easy: PlanetBox will serve as your guide for what and how much to pack. We’ve done the thinking for you. And now your morning routine just got a whole lot easier.
  • Safe: We take “non-toxic, non-leaching, safe from BPA, phthalates, and lead” very seriously – in fact, it’s why we designed PlanetBox! We don’t think you will find safer products on the market than ours.
  • Cost Effective: Why should you pay this much for a lunchbox? Because it’s cheaper to buy food in bulk and pack your own meal. Because your health is worth it. And because it’s an investment your family will use every single day for many years to come – over its lifetime, it will pay off in spades.
  • Great Design: When something actually works well, it makes all the difference. We spent years studying and living how people use lunchboxes. We thoroughly thought through all the details, so you and your kids get the joy and ease of using a superbly designed product.
  • Enjoyable: Think packing lunch is a dreaded chore? Our innovative lunchboxes actually make packing lunch fun and enjoyable – for your kids and yourself!
  • Eco: PlanetBox lunches create a whole lot less trash, which should help you sleep better knowing you’re doing your part to help the planet for future generations.
  • Built to Last: This isn’t your childhood flimsy tin lunchbox. Our high quality stainless steel is warrantied for 5 years, and has been known to survive getting thrown off the school bus (not that we recommend that).
  • Healthy: Forget to pack some veggies? The empty compartment will remind you. Concerned about overeating? That won’t happen – PlanetBox is designed to hold sensible portions. So eat a rainbow of foods, and enjoy.
  • Stress-Free Cleanup: Dishwasher safe? Heck yeah. Peanut butter left for a week? No problem – our stainless steel doesn’t retain yucky food odors or stains like those unfortunate plastic containers do.
  • Customizable: Whether you’re a rock star, a paleontologist, or a flower child, we’ve got a magnet set for you. And when you decide to become an astronaut or fairy lover next year, just change your magnets and you’ve got a fresh new lunchbox to suit your style.

Here are the products I’m using:

Tall Dipper (dip/sauce container)

Tank (snack container)

Launch (Lunch box) with the Rocket Color Bag and Lotus Magnets

planetbox2

I am just so pleased with how easy my Planetbox is to pack, how it has pockets on the outside of the carrying bag (perfect for a La Croix or even the Tank snack container), how cool it looks, how many compliments I get on it, how easy it is to clean, how it fits a hefty sized meal and how it makes me feel like I’m doing something small + good for the planet.

The only thing I’ve run into is that I had trouble with leakage when I put a tomato sauce on top of some lentil noodle inside my Launch box. It seeped out the side. To prevent it the next time, I just put the sauce in the Tall Dipper instead. Worked well that way!

About Pure Betalain

WHAT ARE BETALAINS?

Betalains are natural phytonutrients found primarily in:

While the betalain phytonutrient is found naturally in beets, cacti and other flowers, betalains are bound and attached to sugar molecules within the plant matrix, making it nearly impossible for your body to metabolize it effectively.

HOW BETALAIN™ BOOSTS SPEED & ENDURANCE

MORE OXYGEN GETS TO WHERE IT’S NEEDED
