CBD is the hottest plant in town, and now with Ohio’s official legalization of cannabidiol, it’s popping up on store shelves everywhere. But what is it exactly? CBD or cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive compound found in hemp or cannabis sativa and does not make you high, but is showing to be one of the most healing plants in the world.
CBD was sold in stores up until late last year because of the federal farm bill that stated hemp can be cultivated and sold in the US so long as it has 0.3% of THC or less. Then, the Ohio pharmacy board threw a wrench in the system and stated they do not allow CBD sales outside of Ohio’s new medical marijuana dispensaries. So us and many other businesses were confused by this gray line that had been drawn, and so most companies took the products off their shelves. We slowed down and stopped making innovative medicinal products with hemp CBD, which hurt our business and hurt your ability to heal yourself.

A few months ago, we published an article detailing our mission, where we discuss our views about the natural world and our place in it, as well as how we are aiming to give back. You can find our mission statement below. The short and sweet is that we plant a local Ohio tree for every item sold, and as of the publishing of this article, we’ve succeeded in funding well over 600 trees!
Who’s ready to win some herbal awesomeness? We’re officially announcing our first giveaway!

For decades, anything to do with cannabis, or hemp, had been outlawed, looked down on, and thought to be criminal by many. Even the very mention of the plant was shunned. Thankfully, since the advent of the internet, saner heads have prevailed, clearing up truth and laying waste to propaganda and smear campaigns that have misinformed millions across the globe. And perhaps no country has been affected more so than the minds of the USA. Where it was once thought that cannabis was a harmful drug, reported to cause brain damage, bad decisions and other obscure defects, it’s now becoming common knowledge that the plant is indeed useful for a myriad of medicinal applications.*

Well, it’s true.
When many families must save all year to afford a gift giving extravaganza or choose going in debt for much of the new year to be able to pull off their family’s Christmas, then the holiday is becoming more stressful than it should and the gift giving is being done for the wrong reasons entirely. The holidays are not about shopping, nor are they about sitting through some service. But do beware, because big business and marketing companies will have you believing it’s all about the gifts you buy, and will have a heyday making you feel like you should buy more, and more, and…
