MENOPAUSE: CANNABIS, CLIT SPRITZ & CLEARING THE BRAIN FOG

The Menopause isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Not that women’s magazines give it the most flattering write up with endless articles featuring tips on how to manage hot flushes, mood swings and weight gain. But despite covering the basics in terms of what symptoms to expect, what’s often missing is the vital information about what it’s really like for many people. The fact that, sometimes, dietary tweaks to up your intake of phytoestrogens and keeping a cool spritz by the bed ain’t going to cut it when your... Read More

CBD AND SEX, SPORTS & STAYING CONNECTED

A LOOK AT HOW CBD CAN ENHANCE MENS HEALTH Cannabis does not discriminate. The CBD industry is turning out to be a surprisingly female dominated landscape (both in terms of consumers and behind the scenes), but don’t let that fool you into thinking this isn’t something for men! Not only are the vast majority of the therapeutic affects unisex, but there are a number of benefits worth noting as being particularly helpful for guys. CBD & Testosterone  Studies into the effects of CBD, THC and cannabis as a whole have... Read More

THE MYSTERY OF MIGRAINES

If you’ve ever had one, you will certainly know the difference between a migraine and a headache. If you’ve never had one, it’s a little having having your head crammed between a vice while a circular saw blade furiously rotates across your vision and even a 30 Watt bulb seems to create a torturous light so bright even the sun couldn’t compete. Migraines can often be accompanied with nausea, vomiting, passing out, increased sensitity and other symptoms just to make sure you know you’re not just having a headache. To... Read More

PARENTING…OH, THE BLISS

If you’re here reading about CBD & parenting, chances are you’re a parent. And, assuming that’s the case, we’ll also assume that you already know how deeply challenging being a parent can be on every level. Early years exhaustion? Check. Three-teen tantrums? Check. Endless demands for your time/energy/money/food at every age? Definitely. These (and much more besides) are things that all parents deal with. And even though there’s a lot about being a parent that is of course a wonderful, magical journey, there’s no shame in admitting that some days... Read More

LAUREN MAHON – GIRL VS CANCER – Dealing with it

We met Lauren Mahon at Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place Festival in Chiswick last year (2019). She was on The Talks stage, sharing her experience of being told at the age of 31 she had breast cancer. Devastating news at any age, but Lauren was “thirty-bloody-one, far too young and full-of-fun to be dealing with this kind of crap, and secondly, how can I have breast cancer when she DOESN’T HAVE ANY B*STARD TITS?!?!” It was an aggressive 2.8cm ‘Grade 3’ cancerous lump. Desperate for some reassurance, she headed to CoppaFeel!.... Read More

CBD CLIT SPRITZ – it’s on everyone’s lips…

“The Pleasure Centre of the Vulva” by Louise Hill @junkshopvenus No, it’s not a description of the backseat of a Swedish car. Half the population has one, many spend their lives searching for one and sex would be less fun without one. So let’s not beat about the bush, and get down to the nub, or the bean, or the little bald man in a boat…aka the clitoris. Whatever your pet name is, we’re all aware of the clitoris. It’s the female sex organ that contains over 8000 sensory nerve... Read More

CAN CBD HELP WITH TRAVEL SICKNESS?

We, personally, can’t say for sure, but there’s scientific research that suggests so. To help what I’m about to say make a little more sense, ‘phytocannabinoids’ are produced by the plant and are present in CBD (cannabinoid) oil , ‘endocannabinoids’ are produced naturally by our own bodies, by the Endocannabinoid System. There are many phytocannabinoids like those you’ll see on the bottles of CBD, like, well CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBC, CBN etc.. and many endocannabinoids like our favourite ‘anandamide’. It’s our favourite for 2 reasons; ananda means bliss in the... Read More
