Cannabis Sativa is a vastly misunderstood and underused plant. Once more famous for its psychoactive properties, more and people are realising that there is a lot more to hemp than simply getting high.

Hemp is astonishingly diverse has been used throughout history for wearing, building, washing, eating….the possibilities are seemingly endless. Rope, car parts, biodegrade plastic, paper, clothing, shampoo…..from insulating homes to making nutritious smoothies. Used from seed to stem hemp is a truly sustainable natural resource.

Hemp is a very hardy plant; it grows like a weed which is where the slang term for cannabis comes from. The hemp plant does not need pesticides and herbicides and requires far less water than other plants. Hemp is a relatively fast crop with a hundred day turn around and can be grown in a variety of climates and soil types. Hemp can even be grown on poor soil which it actually improves.

Hemp can also be used to purify soil, air, and water, it is being grown to clean contaminants at the Chernobyl nuclear disaster sight.

While industrial hemp fibres from the stem are used to make fabric and paper, the oil from the seeds has a whole other heap of benefits.

Hemp seed oil is considered one of the most nutritiously balanced supplements you can take. As well as improving the immune system, cardiovascular health and brain development, hemp is rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals and high in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.

Hemp seed oil really helps your skin from the inside, it is a fantastic treatment for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

Used topically hemp is an extremely effective, yet gentle moisturiser, containing key amino acids and vitamins known to prevent dryness and wrinkles, while rejuvenating skin. Hemp oil hydrates without clogging pours, while balancing and regulating your skins natural oils.

The hemp seed oil is a particularly important part of what makes our range so special. Thanks to the ultra-moisturising qualities your skin is left soft and hydrated.

Menopause is for more than just getting grey hairs!

Menopause will happen to all women but their journey will be very different.

symptoms – some sail through with little bother and others seem to battle through a raging storm.

length – again this varies so much

changes – some are subtle and some will never go away and cause a women to change forever.

At Running on Hempty we offer a natural alternative that can help!

The hormonal changes in menopause cause the inflammatory molecules, brain chemistry, weight regulation and bone density to change! These changes can be frustrating, overwhelming and sometimes painful. Here are just a few symptoms of menopause:

weight– can increase despite exercise

mood – can be very low

sleep– very disturbed

hot flushes – a nightmare!

pain – can be headaches, joint pain, stiffness, and aches

anxiety/stress/depression – suddenly we question our ability, loose our confidence and our personalities change.

brain fog – this is so frustrating!

osteoporosis – our bones become softer

Tears – they just flow for no reason

You aren’t alone in this, your journey is just personal to you.

Not all professionals help but its important to know your body and persist in wanting help if you need it. There are lots of ways to help yourself. Take care of you, find ways to help such as mindfulness, yoga, walking, exercise, or alternative remedies, such as CBD.

CBD assists our endocanibinoid system (ECS) maintaining balance in the body and mind. Cannabinoid compounds interact with serotonin receptors much like traditional antidepressants, effectively reducing stress and anxiety. CBD gives sleep stability and eases sleep disruption. This can create clarity of mind and a rested state that sets you up for the day ahead.

Try our CBD teas and coffee! Taking CBD can also help manage pain and inflammation, alleviating those aches and painful joints, improving our mood. It can also help with brain fog and memory loss, even helps with bone density!

Always check with a medical professional if you are taking prescribed medication as you want it to work in harmony.

Does CBD oil expire?

The answer to this question is yes . It does take a while though .

The shelf life of unopened cbd is easily 2 years  plus . Once opened it should ideally be kept in the fridge this gives it much longer . You should look after your bottle by cleaning the dropper and neck of the bottle regularly. If you do this and keep it out of direct sunlight or heat  it can be fine for 12-14 months or maybe longer .   Most people who use it on a daily basis will never get to its expiry date as you replenish it with a new bottle every 4-8 weeks . 

You want to avoid bacterial clumps forming this will happen if you leave it somewhere hot or in direct sunlight. Having it in coloured glass bottles helps to keep the oil protected from light . 

Buying from a good source is also key . You know your product is in top condition when you get it as it’s been tested many times before it reaches you.

cannabinoid oils  can change colour . These colour shifts do not indicate an issue it’s the plant compounds and you can see pink , rose and sometimes shades of brown or even darker they react to light . This is why it’s best to keep your bottle out of light and somewhere cool preferably the fridge to avoid any unwanted bacteria forming .
All our cbd is of the highest quality tested and by a third party . Lab reports are available.
