Have you heard of the “new” superhero on the block?

CBD oil is making headlines all over the place and for GREAT reasons!


CBD oil is derived from an ancient plant- hemp! Though cannabis oil preparations have been used in medicine for ages and ages, the concern over the dangers of abuse led to the banning of the medicinal use of marijuana in the 1930s. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the two most abundant cannabinoid chemicals found in the cannabis (marijuana) plant. The other chemical found in cannabis is controversial because THC causes euphoria and other mind-altering effects. CBD, however, doesn’t contain THC and it is safe for people of all ages and is legal in all 50 states.

In the last few years, CBD has been BLOWING UP due to the abundance of studies coming out about the overall health benefits attributed to regular use of CBD.  I honestly, consider my self a bit of a lab rat, testing the most up to date wellness products on my chasing good health quest to see if they work BEFORE I tell you about them.  When it comes to CBD trust me when I say I’ve had A LOT of experience testing out different brands, dosages and there’s only ONE I would recommend.  More on that below…

CBD oil has an impressive list of benefits

The list of health benefits CBD oil has been shown to give is astonishing! It has been proven effective for an impressive array of conditions like minor mood swings and mild depression to major illness and diseases like epilepsy, diabetes and cancer. A preponderance of evidence shows CBD is received well by the human body because we actually have an internal endocannabinoid system. This means our bodies have receptors that recognize and understand how to use CBD oil to aid the body with an array of issues associated with stress and serious health issues!!

During the month of August, we have been focusing on reducing stress! CBD oil can be a hero in this battle! Studies show CBD oil can reduce pain, stabilize appetite, regulate mood, improve memory and quality of sleep. It can also restore proper immune response so inflammation and toxicity is reduced. Can I get a Hallelujah?? These are the very villains we want to conquer to thrive with everyday stress!

Sign me up for a stress-reducing silver bullet!

Our main Juice Ritual expert and world renown doctor of Naturopathy and Ayurvedic and Functional medicine practitioner, Dr. Stephen Cabral calls CBD oil a panacea for anxiety, inflammation, skin issues and beyond! 

I make the highest quality products and you can bet I also use the very best in class products on my quest to chase good health.  I’ve tried no less than 10 brands of supposedly the “best” version of CBD oil. I can assure you this one is the best. It’s full spectrum, organic, free of any additives that can reduce potency.  It’s third party verified, extracted via CO2 to ensure the product is not exposed to any heat, and finally it’s free of pesticides, heavy metals and mycotoxiins.  I’m telling you this because the CBD market is a bit like the wild wild west right now, so you REALLY need to buy from a trusted, reputable source.

Dr. Cabral is on his third version of the CBD oil and we will drop a link here when it’s ready to buy!  Live locally?  Stop by our store to grab a bottle or try it in our Nulu Nirvana smoothie!


Combatting Stress requires vigilance!

The external environment is increasingly toxic, but we can take control of the neighborhood of the inside of our bodies. Chasing good health means we must always be up-leveling what we do. In order to disarm the weapons, the environment and our stressful lives carry, we have to armor our body so we eat the right food, get enough sleep and support the detoxification process. Our bodies have the capacity to heal from the inside out.  CBD oil is an ally in our quest to not only live well, but to turn back the hands of time.
