Research suggests that adaptogens relieve stress by modulating the release of stress hormones from the adrenal glands. They do this by affecting the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis).
If you’re looking for a more holistic approach to managing your monthly cycles and health consider exploring hemp-derived cannabinoids like CBD. Extracted from the hemp plant, CBD has properties that benefit health issues unique to women by creating balance throughout the body.
CBD to the Rescue!
Luckily, there are ways we can bring balance back into the body by tapping into our own internal regulator of bodily systems, something called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Recent studies have identified the ability of the ECS to regulate pain, inflammation, sleep, the immune system, reproduction and memory. The ECS also helps manage the body’s need for balance.
If you are suffering from sleep issues you are not alone. Nightly, millions of Americans have trouble falling or staying asleep. Age, unhealthy habits, medications and underlying conditions all contribute to interrupted sleep.
Most of us don’t think about the long-term impact of poor sleep. A lack of adequate sleep has been shown to be associated with cardiovascular disease, neurological issues and a weakened immune system. Simply put, when you don’t sleep well you are at greater risk of getting sick or dying. [Read more…]

Ouch!! If you’ve broken a bone or cracked a tooth, you know the results – PAIN. Referred to as acute pain, this unpleasant sensation is letting your brain know that you have sustained an injury. Ideally, as the injury heals the sensation of pain will lessen with time.
But what if the pain you have doesn’t go away? You may be one of the millions of people that suffer from chronic pain, defined as pain that lasts at least 12 weeks. Chronic pain may be the result of an initial injury or illness and can unfortunately last for years.
For over six months now, our lives have been dominated by Covid-19, as a result of the Corona virus that has kept the large majority of the world in a state of disarray. Although many of us have gotten used to the changes in routine at this point, there’s no denying that a mental health crisis is looming as our collective stress has hit an all-time high.
If you’ve ever wondered why CBD Hemp products are so different from other botanical supplements we take for our heath and wellness, the answer is cannabinoids. It’s also the terpenes and cannaflavins, but that’s another article.
Cannabinoids are a unique class of compounds that are found in all plants belonging to the plant genus, Cannabis. There are other plants that have these compounds, but in much smaller amounts.
Other than general relaxation, the majority of consumers use CBD to support anxiety, pain and sleeplessness. That’s according to a poll conducted by the Nutrition Business Journal. And it’s no wonder, since approximately 20% of the adult population in the U.S. suffers from anxiety, 10% from pain and 30% from sleeplessness! [Read more…]
Have you thought about giving your pet CBD Hemp Oil? As it turns out, more and more people are sharing the healing properties of CBD hemp oil with their four-legged friends, and for good reason. As you’ll see, science shows us that our furry companions utilize the compounds in hemp just like we do, which is why veterinarians are beginning to access the use of CBD to treat our precious cats and dogs.
Although, there are no official standard dosing guidelines for animals set in place, there are some general recommended CBD dosage guidelines you can follow. While it can seem like a task to figure out the correct dosage for your pet, below is an easy way to calculate exactly how much CBD oil you should give your cat or dog.
Dosing Frequency: To control discomfort, give every 8 hours or as needed. To control anxiety, give 30 minutes before the event (thunderstorm, fireworks, leaving the home, separation, traveling with your pet). For all other uses give twice a day.
The Trill Story
Trill was started by, David Threlfall, owner of Trill Alternatives Dispensary. While his mom was battling cancer, he researched the healing opportunities of cannabis. Sadly, his mom passed and was not able to benefit from his research, he continued to learn about cannabis and decided to open up a dispensary. David wanted to create a place to provide education around the safe use of cannabis. [Read more…]

It’s no wonder that pet adoptions are up dramatically over the recent weeks. Finding companionship and providing a home to four-legged friends can be a silver lining to this crisis. While we “shelter-in-place”, most pet shelters are actually out of adoptable animals.
While the change in work and travel schedules has made this all possible, there is another reason to the uptick. Having a pet companion with us can reduce our feelings of isolation and provide much needed stress relief.

If you’re new to the world of adaptogens, here’s how these medicinal herbs, in a nutshell, support the immune system…
Adaptogens counteract the effects of stress in the body. Stressors of all kinds harm several systems in the body, including the immune systems. Adaptogens can prevent or even reverse those harmful effects.
While counteracting the physical effects of stress is a great thing, how else can adaptogens support the immune system? How do they actually strengthen the immune response?
Before answering these questions, let’s take a step back and talk about the basics of the immune system.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we thought it would be best if you heard it straight from the horse’s mouth (pardon the pun) about how adaptogens support the immune system, even against a highly-contagious virus.
As a nutritionist I had been inundated with emails describing protocols to help enhance the immune system from many different sources. I do believe we can all boost our natural abilities to fight infection with diet, supplements and lifestyle measures. Below, I have compiled some of my previous posts and recommendations that I thought would be most useful. [Read more…]
