Playing In The Dirt
On this site I offer a choice with all of my herbal products, that is with or without Cannabidiol or CBD. The reason I do this is simple, CBD helped me so much, with chronic pain and other conditions, that I hope it will for those of you who need help too.
The following paragraph is information from an organization called Project CBD. They are a non-profit, educational service. You can find much more information about CBD on their website www.projectcbd.org
*CBD is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid with enormous therapeutic potential. Cannabinoids are chemicals that trigger the cannabinoid (and other) receptors in the brain and body. In addition to phyto-cannabinoids produced by the plant, there are endogenous cannabinoids that occur naturally in the body, as well as synthetic cannabinoids created by pharmaceutical researchers. CBD has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasm, anti-convulsant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumeral, and neuro-protective properties. CBD directly activates serotonin receptors, causing an anti-depressant effect, as well. Scientific and clinical studies have shown that CBD could be therapeutic for many conditions, including chronic pain, cancer, anxiety, diabetes, epilepsy, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, sleep disorders, alcoholism, cardiovascular disease, antibiotic-resistant infections, and neurological ailments. Academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere are currently studying the effects of CBD on these and other health problems.*
I have used CBD for my own chronic severe pain for a year now. During that time I have stopped all prescription and over-the-counter pain medication and learned a lot about CBD, where it comes from, and many ways it can help most of us. There are also many ways to use CBD. I started with capsules, which helped me, but not enough for my level of pain. I tried lotion on every spot that hurt, which helped me, but not enough for my level of pain. Along the way I tried a few edibles, with the same result. But then I tried vaping the CBD oil and about 3-4 days later, I visited with my “CBD Guru” and gave him a big hug! I told him I had the best week! Finally, after suffering with pain for years I found something that noticeably eased it and, unlike most pharmaceuticals, it left me conscious enough to enjoy my life! I have added the CBD lotion and some edibles back into my pain relief regimen, along with my herbal teas, culinary blends and baths! I am working toward a combination and amount of each product that is just right for me. We have found that this method seems to help the most in keeping a level amount of CBD in our bodies throughout the day, which best keeps negative symptoms at bay. On "bad" pain days, I add CBD sublinguil oil. On "good" pain days, less and so on. My “Gurus”, a father and son team, Keith and Kyle, owners of Nibbana Life, have become my very good friends, and now partners in bringing affordable CBD products and information to anyone who needs it. I have been studying and blending CBD with some of my herbal products. Therefore, you will find that my line of hand blended herbal teas, culinary herbs and herbal baths, are offered with or without CBD. All of my CBD blended products have measured dosages of CBD, because they are meant to add to your CBD plan for your individual needs. I am currently working on more herbal/CBD products. So keep an eye out for their introduction here! Remember, Playing In The Dirt and our "WEEDS" product line are here to help. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us.
