Nature’s Natural Remedy

It never fails. I am always so excited for fall and winter to get here…until the first day the chapped lips show up. Chapped lips are my brain’s signal that says “bye-bye beach glow” and “hello dry, rough winter skin.”The burning, peeling lips are usually followed by red, ruddy cheeks and a Rudolph nose. If I don’t treat it aggressively in the first few days, it quickly spreads like a creeping crud. Rough patches in and around my eyebrows, hair line and ears appear. For years I treated it with over the counter steroid creams, but eventually they stopped working. Then my barber mentioned applying tea tree oil. It is very effective but I am not fond of the way it smells. Ever hopeful for advances in skin calming products, I constantly scan beauty aide reviews. Imagine my delight to see the latest CBD HempWise’s catalog in the break room at work. Right on the cover was a photo of the Abinoid Botanicals CBD Skincare line. I looked at product descriptions and sizes of the bottles. I felt the cost was comparable to my Clinique routine. PLUS the Hemp Oil skincare products have a huge added BONUS-delivering CBD. What an easy way to increase your CBD bioavailability. My goal is to control skin irritation by having CBD available in my system BEFORE flare-ups get a jumpstart.

When I read up on hemp oil and its positive effects on hair and skin, I was impressed. The natural humectant properties of CBD are impressive, but it is the detoxifying nature of hemp that sold me. I bought the CBD Hemp Oil Skincare products to give them a try. I also added a Tasty Hemp Oil Lip Balm.They are a steal at $3 (same price as Burt’s but lasts longer). I love that it has no scent, yet tastes great. Since CBD HempWise offers free shipping on orders of $99 or more….the whole box of CBD Hemp Oil Skincare kit (4 bottles of product) showed up at my door for $125 + tax.

My skin is very sensitive. It is also both oily and dry. Normally when I change my skincare routine, I try to add one new item at a time.That way if I experience a reaction, there is no question. I easily know which product is the offender. This time, I was too excited to do that. My face needs healing and calming attention now. I lined up my new skincare regime on the bathroom counter.Cleanser,Toner,Serum and the Moisturizer. Staring at them, I wondered. Can there BE a more invigorating way to start my day? What can I achieve by adding a little bump of CBD into my morning skin care routine? As I blog my healing process – I will focus on these areas of interest: Were these products easy to use? Did they cause irritation or breakouts? Do the products rinse clean? Is there any visible result/improvement in skin from the addition of a topical CBD treatment?

Today I have more curiosity than answers…but the next time we meet; it will be a different story!

The Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie CBD Cupcake Incident

Well, it’s almost Thanksgiving again. God, I love the holiday season, it really warms the cockles. This year I’ll be celebrating with CBD pumpkin pie cupcakes. They are absolutely delicious, but I digress. Before I get too far ahead of myself, I guess I should start from the beginning.

It was about this time last year (a few days before Thanksgiving) that I first tried CBD. I had just gotten off work and was headed over to my buddies to blow off some steam. Catch a game, shoot some hoops, heck, I’d settle for PlayStation – anything to get my mind off of the horrible day I just had.

I have a high stress job, with lots of multitasking and deadlines. Add to that an overbearing supervisor you don’t vibe with – sparks tend to fly. This day in particular, was no exception. I overlooked something and he chewed me out pretty good, in front of everybody. He told me I needed to work on my “attention to detail”. I took the criticism like a pro, calm and cool baby. On the inside however, I was pretty heated. As I headed to my car at the end of the day, I was feeling edgy and high strung. I needed something to take the edge off.

So anyway, I get to my buddy’s house and regal him and his wife with my watercooler drama. My friend said “chillax dude, I’ve got you covered”. And he handed me, wait for it, drumroll please…a pumpkin pie cupcake. He said “try this” as he explained it was infused with CBD. He said he used it for medicinal purposes and that it might relax me. He also explained that it was legal, and that it would not get me high. After he assured me there was no THC, I tried one.

Three cupcakes in and 15 min. later, I was feeling pretty calm. I noticed I was significantly more relaxed. It was as if the tension and stress had just evaporated. Since this incident occurred, I have made CBD part of my routine. I don’t use it every day, just when I have a particularly grueling day at work. Sometimes I just want to “Zen-out” to my favorite jams or Netflix and chill. Whatever the case may be, CBD is a nice addition to my regimen.

This Thanksgiving, I’m making the cupcakes. I’m gonna make a batch for my buddy and his wife as well. I think they’ll like that. Whatever happened to that overbearing supervisor you might ask? He was transferred out-of-state – I got his job. (P. S. – see recipe below)

Pumpkin Pie CBD Cupcakes

(This recipe makes 12 cupcakes)

CBD Pumpkin Cupcakes
  • 12 drops of HempWise CBD full-spectrum hemp extract
  • 1 sheet of refrigerated pie crust
  • half a can (7 1/2 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • ½ Tbs. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup of confectioners’ sugar
  • ground cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350, line 12 muffin cups with foil liners
  2. Unroll crust. Cut 12 circles with a floured 2-1/4-in. round cookie cutter. Press one crust circle into each liner. Bake until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
  3. In a big bowl, beat HempWise CBD full-spectrum hemp extract, pumpkin, eggs, oil, water and vanilla until blended. In another bowl, whisk flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, pie spice and salt; slowly beat into pumpkin mixture. Pour 1/4 cup batter into each cup.
  4. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, 20-25 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking. Cool for 10 minutes in pan, then move to wire racks and cool completely.
  5. Whip cream in a large bowl until it begins to thicken. Then add confectioner’s sugar and beat until soft peaks form. Top the cupcake and sprinkle with cinnamon… Delicious!

CBD is the Recipe for Fall

YUP – made a BIG gaffe at the office today. Amidst all the Monday morning quarterbacking and mundane chatter about last night’s Walking Dead episode; suddenly I blurted out loudly “I’ve decided to lose 20 lbs. and start taking my CBD oil every day”. An awkward silence fell over the break room – then it emptied out pretty fast. I don’t know my co-workers too well. Generally, I work from home. My trips to the store, for our Monday morning pow-wows used to be something I looked forward to – now, suddenly, I felt silly. Why did I think these relative strangers gave a damn about what I decided to do? I tried to forget about it, so I wouldn’t feel embarrassed saying my “goodbyes” as I left. I will be honest. It kinda bummed me out.

15 minutes on the road, my email notifications started 3, 4, then 5, 6, 7 times. It was apparent something was going on. When I pulled over and opened the emails…my day took a wild 180. Each email was from someone that was in the break room earlier that morning. Every person had either lost weight or was a REAL BELIEVER in the power of daily bio-availability (steady dosing) of CBD oil. The notes were so encouraging. They offered inspiration, tips for changing habits and even a FALL CBD RECIPE (thanks, Marie!). So, I was absolutely wrong. These were not emails from co-workers that did not care – they were messages of inspiration from people who have been there…and pulled it off! Their weight loss ideas were…interesting. But the advice on managing a daily CBD routine was essential! The guidance I received makes me feel more confident that I CAN successfully implement a lifestyle change. Now instead of trepidation, I feel a burning desire to try and live a full, healthy life again.

These were my 3 favorite tips:

  1. Don’t set yourself up for failure. If the oil isn’t your style, consider other CBD choices.
  2. If you do benefit from a daily CBD oil routine and experience break-through pain or signs of inflammation; it is easy to add 2 extra drops in the a.m. & p.m. on those rougher days. This small bump in dose should provide an extended (or expedited) period of relief.
  3. Many folks found that during stressful times (they mentioned the holidays & illnesses) was when they used edible CBD products. 2 people specifically liked Tasty Hemp Oil’s – CBD Gummy Bears (at 25mg. ea.) And Marie sends her favorite CBD Zucchini Soup recipe.

CHILLED OR WARM CBD ZUCCHINI SOUP

  • 2 lbs. Zucchini
  • 2 shallots minced
  • 4 tbsp. Butter
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 26-28 oz. of chicken stock (comes in 32 oz. pkg. but I think 28oz. makes ideal texture)

DIRECTIONS

Melt butter over low heat in large sauté pan. Add minced shallots and cook 2 minutes. Do not brown. Turn heat to medium and add the thinly sliced zucchini. Cook until completely tender. Turn off heat. Add 1 tsp. curry powder; add cayenne pepper to taste.

Pour cooked zucchini and stock in 2 batches into blender. Pulse soup until desired texture 20-30 seconds. Blend both batches and stir in CBD oil. May be served warm* or chill in fridge for 1hr to serve cool. Top with croutons & dollop of sour cream or serve warm with small baguettes that have been sliced on bias, brushed w/olive oil and toasted in 350 degree oven until edges are just brown. ENJOY!

*Do not reheat soup AFTER adding CBD oil. This may reduce or effect potency.

CBD Purity & Safety

Every fall it’s the same story. Family and friends in the North brag about the majestic colored leaves, cool winds and warm recipes. Meanwhile, I am in Florida just begging to be greeted by the first cool breeze of November…and then it happened – yesterday. I opened the door and felt an invigorated breath of cold. It was a rush of cool air! It should have been expected; since daylight savings kicked in our days are shorter now. “Get out and enjoy it,” I think to myself, as I hop into the shower. Unfortunately, on the way to the shower (since I was naked) I decided to hop on the bathroom scale. Jeez, that was a bad mistake. My day was immediately side-tracked. Last week when I blogged about wanting to lose 20 lbs. – it was going to be one of my 2 New Year’s Resolutions. Now, the only way I could accept the number on that scale, was if I were a bear readying for hibernation. There is no way that waiting for New Year’s is going to work for me I thought. I’ll start losing tomorrow, I promised myself. I made a produce list while I shaved.

 

Once home from the market, the fruits and veggies got wiped off and stacked in a fancy bowl. As I rearranged them, I started reading the little stickers of origin. The vine ripe tomatoes & avocadoes were from Mexico. The Chiquita bananas came from Guatemala and the Beefsteak Tomato was a product of Canada. I only bought one thing that was grown in the U.S. It was a Gala apple from northern MI. It figures. With me on one side of the sink and the produce on the other, I felt worried. With so many food (beef) recalls, Hep A. and stories of food contamination; food safety and product purity are a REAL concern.

 

Here I am, trying to make my body healthier. How do I know who to trust? How do I really know what I am getting, whether it is my groceries or my CBD? Who can I trust for my CBD needs? These are relevant, important questions since my #2 resolution is to start daily dosing CBD oil. After finding CBD HempWise’s store in 2018, my sporadic use of CBD products has helped me overcome chronic insomnia. It’s now 18 months later and I see daily dosing of CBD as the path to attaining a higher level of well-being. Part of my decision to start a daily CBD oil routine in 2020, is based on the increased availability of CBD in my area.

 

My trust has always been in CBD HempWise. They have not let me down. Since safety and purity are top concerns – I appreciate their well-founded partners. It puts my mind at ease knowing that CBD Hempwise sells only products from reliable, hand-picked companies and that each product is lab tested for both purity and CERTIFIED POTENCY. The added benefit of 3rd party lab results makes me feel confident that CBD HempWise has my back.

 

Now if I could just source more organically grown local produce.

CBD Resolutions

Boom – the World Series is barelyover. Football & Tailgating is in full swing. Next thing you know Thanksgiving creeps up and passes. Then Christmas Eve and Christmas whiz by. In the blink of an eye, it will be New Year’s Eve. To me, that signals the inside voice that says “dude, start thinking about your New Year’s RESOLUTION. You know resolutions-those positive affirmations of change you make to yourself, but rarely manage to pull off for more than a week? Well, under normal circumstances; I would never reveal my flawsresolutions to a total stranger. But, 2020 is going to be different for me. The price of CBD oil in my local (Clearwater, St. Pete, Tampa, FL area) has come down in price in the last 6 months since the supply here has increased.

 

Price was my last objection and my main reason for not starting and maintaining a daily, CBD oil routine. 75% of my coworkers have experienced benefits from ingesting CBD oil every day. There are 5 of us that already use either the Endoca Hemp Cream or ABINOID’S CBD Muscle Salve (nice Violet/Basil scent) for joint ache relief. Both really enhance the soothing properties of being massaged into skin. The emollient nature of both “rubs” improves skin’s texture. BUT I AM NOT LOOKING FOR MORE SMOOTH SKIN – or relief from anxiety or freedom from aches/pains. My goal is to experience a heightened sense of overall improved health and well-being. So – I am actually excited to make a resolution that I can keep. January 1st I am going to add CBD oil into my daily regime. Before I start my new CBD routine, it is gonna take some research (water cooler chat) with my homies to find out a few things like:

 

How do I figure out how many doses are in a 10ml bottle of 1000mg. of CBD oil?
This is how they broke it down to me. A 10-mL bottle of CBD oil has about 200 drops. So, if the bottle says it contains 1,000 mg of CBD then, each dropwill contain about 5 mg of CBD. So, to have 20 mg of that type of CBD oil, you should take four drops.
The 10ml bottle will last 25 days.

 

How much do I use?
This answer seems to be based on body weight, the condition you are treating and the concentration in each drop, pill, gummy or capsule. My buddies take 4 drops of oil, twice a day. The first daily dose is taken upon rising; the second before bed. This equals a 40mg. total daily dose of CBD oil.

 

How did they hit their “sweet spot” dose?
By trial and error (combined with the fact that they all weigh 150 to 180lbs.) this dose worked for all of them. They did start with a 30 mg. dose (3 drops in a.m. and 3 in p.m.) and went up from there to 40mg. a day. Although one guy’s girlfriend only weighs 105 and she got some stomach distress at the 40mg. dose. She currently takes 2 drops in the a.m. and 2 in the p.m. I guess you know how much is too much CBD oil, if it makes you poop. TMI?

 

What’s your 2020 Resolution? We’d like to hear about it. No Politics Please 🙂

Fall In To CBD Health

At CBD Hemp Wise, we believe all conditions improve when overall health is in check. Attaining balance and maintaining well-being can sometimes be an elusive proposition.That has turned out to be the case for both my personal journey with CBD andfor business here at CBD HempWise. What started out as a search for the highest-quality CBD oil at the best price – led to sourcing and creating our own impeccable CBD oil (HempWise CBD Full Spectrum Hemp Extract with 1450 mg). Excited by the idea of offering our CBD oil to others that wanted the opportunity to enjoy wellness; we built a business. As soon as we started the CBD HempWise, we knew we needed a larger selection of CBD products and skin care choices. That began a stringent review before selecting several CBD partners. It is important to me to have a CBD network you can trust…all in one place. That means I am not searching around when it comes time to order again. Our vendors are vetted and back all items with a guarantee of purity, and 3rd party Lab tests upon request . We like that. We also like to hear your ideas. Reader’s suggestions have already led to HempWise researching the addition of a 30-day auto-renew option.

 

Each staffer on the CBD HempWise team from the founder, CS reps to the bloggers; has seen healing and improvement through the daily, regimented use of CBD oil. We have lived it and we are eager to share the CBD word with others we meet in need. Sounds cliché – but IT IS our passion. Please do not get me wrong. We are making no profound claims, just blogging our experiences with CBD oil, edibles, topicals, drinks and Pet CBD. Blogging allows us to share the results of product use and provide real-time, updated feedback. It allows us to tell our own personal journeys/struggles with CBD and explore the huge industry surrounding CBD as well.

 

HAVING SAID ALL OF THAT…our business struggles have been great this past year. On the federal level CBD is 100% legal. It has effectively been removed from the CSA (Controlled substance Act). However the FDA (with its own leadership struggles) slowed down the process. Since CDB is sold as both a dietary supplement andfood-they had to be responsible & evaluate the science. Guess what? As of 10/09/2019CBD product labels will be held to the same standard of reporting, as all FDA approved food& drugs. That opens the door to further approvals. Now, it is just a matter of time to get the processes and protocols established.

 

Even the 2018 Farm Bill acknowledged that CBD (a cannabis derivative) is very low in THC. This natural, non-psychoactive hemp plant extract is legal in all 50 states. Originally, somestates dawdled in setting guidelines and seemed to pose the biggest challenges for CBD use and business growth. For months, CBD Hempwise struggled to secure and keep a merchant to handle transactions. Banks sent notices of account closures or refused to open business or commercial accounts for a CBD business. As the federal government, state agencies and the FDA lolly-gagged on delivering definitive decisions; real people, real businesses and business livelihoods were in jeopardy.The HempWise team was positive 2019 was going to get better.

 

Jump to November… Florida established the hoops to jump through and we did it.

 

WE’RE BACK BABY! Great Specials, New Products… and BEST of ALL? NEW BLOGS 🙂

All’s Well That Ends Well

It can be a drag getting old sometimes. I mean I’m not ancient or anything (early 40s), I’ve still got game. Sometimes the body just isn’t up to every challenge; case in point. I work in an office building with mostly twenty somethings. One afternoon, after work, we all rode the elevator down together, like we always do. We were making small talk, and just as we got to the lobby and approached the doors to exit the building we saw it…fast moving – ripping, sideways rain. Oh the joy of being a Floridian in the summer.

 

I’m typically a wait it out kind of guy. Today though, was not typical.  Crowds of people (half my age), were making mad dashes to their cars, bounding across the parking lot, laughing all the way to their car doors. So I thought “what the hell” I’m going to go for it. So off I went, like greased lightning. Waving as I passed people on the way to MY car. I only had to close 10 more feet of distance and I was home free.

 

The next few rainy seconds play in my mind like slow motion. My foot came up and then down on the curb of a parking lot island. Hit it just right too, caught it right on the edge. My foot then proceeded to fold in half at the ankle; I instantly knew it was bad.  I launched headfirst into my car. Wet and wounded. It was extremely unpleasant. As I looked up I saw a few of my coworkers staring at me. Needless to say- my pride took a beating as well.

 

Our office secretary, Janine, rushed to my aid. She drove me to the emergency room, even waited with me, turned out I had an extremely sprained ankle and superficial lacerations. A little bruising here and there (nothing as bad as my pride though) – all in all; in one piece. As Janine drove me home, she asked if I’d ever heard of CBD. I said I’d seen advertising on the Internet, but never gave it much thought.

 

She insisted we swing by her place because she had just purchased some CBD hemp salve and wanted me to try it. I was definitely game; by now my ankle was the size of a tennis ball. I was in a lot of pain, and the emergency room doctor only gave me Motrin 3. Janine explained to me first and foremost that CBD hemp oil and hemp products are legal,which was my first concern. She was very enthusiastic while touting the amazing CBD hemp oil benefits. She also assured me that CBD hemp oil side effects were negligible.

 

After about 15 minutes, I was astounded at how it reduced the pain and inflammation in my ankle so quickly. We talked for a while, and she explained how to use CBD oil to me. See also said she had a good CBD oil hook up in CBD HempWise. She said they have quality CBD hemp oil extract that is cost-effective CBD hemp oil. She assured me they had some of the best CBD on the market at a very competitive price. I was most happy to learn I could purchase CBD oil online. Janine said she knew I would like that.

 

That was a couple months ago, and CBD really helped me through that tough time. What does CBD oil feel like when you ingest it you might ask? You don’t get high from it, but it has amazing anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties.

 

That sprained ankle turned out to be a blessing. Not because of the CBD, although I have made it a part of my daily regimen to combat anxiety, and it is AMAZING. No, the blessing part is that Janine and I began dating, and are getting married next spring. All’s well that ends well, that’s what I always say.

Independence day

The Fourth of July is once again right around the corner – parades, cookouts, fireworks and celebrating that American independence baby. I’ll be celebrating another kind of independence around the same time this year. As of July 7, 2019, I’ll be one year THC free.

 

I started smoking pot when I was 12. My first paper route supported my habit and launched a lifetime of ingesting it. Although I appreciate marijuana for its recreational benefits, I mainly used it for its medicinal ones. Move ahead 30 years – at 42, as an asthma sufferer and with my short term memory on the decline – I decided it was time to quit. I made the decision to walk away from THC for good (although I still believe in its medicinal properties). I’m breathing better now, I’m less anxious and I have laser focus these days.

 

Let me take a step back. My doctor had been trying to convince me to take a CANNABREAK for years. He said someone with an asthma condition, smoking anything, was beyond ridiculous (of that he was adamant). I couldn’t really argue the point. He suggested that perhaps long term THC consumption was affecting my short term memory as well. He finally convinced me that I could do it. I cannot tell you the panic that ensued. How could I stop smoking pot…and not freak out? Well, he had an answer- CBD. He suggested I try it for 90 days, to wean myself off of THC. I’m almost a year in, and I’ve never looked back. I don’t miss THC. CBD gives me all the same effects without the high. I’m still using CBD. It keeps my anxiety in check, but most amazing of all, it reduces and alleviates my asthma symptoms. Studies have shown CBD to be a bronchodilator an anti-inflammatory and an antispasmodic. It is now a daily part of my regiment and for me is indispensable.

When my journey began I had lots of questions and decisions to make. Should I buy hemp oil that is FULL SPECTRUM oil or an ISOLATE? Making things more confusing, there are oils made from Whole Plant (full spectrum) Hemp, and oils made from Isolated Hemp! Whole plant hemp is associated with high-grade CBD oil and is extracted from the seeds, stem, and stalk of the plant. Not only does hemp oil contain CBD, but it also provides many natural cannabis compounds. The most beneficial results seem to derive from the addition of terpenes, flavonoids and Omega 3 added to your system with CBD. These and most “secondary” cannabinoids like CBG, CBC, and CBG-A cannot be naturally derived through food. Using CBD as a diet supplement offers total bioavailability of these nutrients. Omega 3 (fatty acids) are extremely important because of their power to repair damaged brain cells. This is very important to me (short-term memory).

 

My goal is to obtain a higher level of health and a stable feeling of well-being through the use of CBD oils and topicals. My decision to use a full spectrum tincture was made based on info gleaned from websites like: CBD Hacker and Harvard Health. They provide insight and do not sell their own CBD products. I likened them to a Consumer Report on CBD and hemp products. I soon decided whole plant supplement was probably more effective than its Isolated Hemp counterpart. Isolated hemp products come from just the stalk of the hemp and have the terpenes, cannabinoids and flavonoids found in the hemp plant removed. CBD hemp wise has everything I need. High-quality inexpensive CBD products from a company I trust. I really enjoy their Bluebird Botanicals – (1500 mg CBD), Full Spectrum. I also like the Endoca – Hemp Oil Drops (1500mg CBD) and their topicals are fantastic. I love this time of year. Summertime is in the air and I feel great. I’ll be out there with America this year, cooking out with my family, going to the fireworks and celebrating America’s independence. Only this year, I’ll also be celebrating my independence from THC…thanks to CBD.

Chunky CBD Infused salsa

So the other day my significant other and I decided to head down to our local Carl’s Junior. They debuted a CBD infused burger on 4/20 (the first major fast-food chain to do so). Get this, the “Rocky Mountain High Cheeseburger Delight”. It was only being offered at one location, and we live close. So we figured, why not? While my sweetie and I were chowing down on this thing, we were informed by an employee that it was actually the “Santa Fe” sauce infused with CBD. I found this interesting and moved on with lunch. As we casually chatted she blurted out “I just had a brainstorm”. “Uh-oh” I thought to myself. She continued by making me aware that we were having a party at our place. She then proceeded to tell me that I was nominated to make my famous salsa and infuse it with CBD. She looked me right in the eye and said “well, you in”? It did actually sound like a lot of fun, so I said “Yes, I’m in”.

 

CBD has become a topic of interest, with our circle of friends, as of late. They were all aware that CBD does not have the psychoactive effects that THC does. So, it doesn’t get you “high”. CBD salsa would be the perfect crowd-pleaser, I had to admit. We finished our CBD burgers (which were awesome btw) and headed home. I had half the battle licked; I already had a good CBD oil connection in CBDHempWise. I could always rely on them for good CBD oil that was cheap. In fact, I had just recently purchased a bottle of Mojito Lime Hemp Extract (Extra Strength – 1oz, 1000mg CBD). I love the stuff; it’s actually been a big game changer in my life. My girlfriend is the social butterfly. I’m more of an introvert; prone to anxiety. That includes social anxiety. I like CBD because I’ve never noticed any negative CBD hemp oil side effects. The CBD hemp oil benefits I experience are very positive. It sets my mind at ease knowing it’s legal as well. My CBD oil dosage will vary, depending on the situation. My anxiety is probably medium when it comes to parties, but with CBD I’m chill.

 

My better half and I have purchased all our party favors and decorations (and beer). I tracked down everything for my salsa too. I made a small batch last night for a trial run. My gorgeous gal raved about it. There is little doubt as to her sincerity – she devoured copious amounts of the stuff. We polished off our beers and agreed the salsa was a real winner. We were feeling pretty confident about our upcoming party (I’ll update this blog following are little soirée). I thought some of you may enjoy the recipe, so I’ve included it below. Stay thirsty my friends.
