Lunch and learn is the most amazing part of the day on retreat – not only because we simply sit down to eat, take a second to chew, chat , digest but to: learn about something – A dose of lifestyle medicine you can take with you!
One of our Lunch and learn sessions always centers around food – of course – and CBD because so much of what we eat is laced with it! Yes, we are dosing you with goodness any which way – any chance we can get it.
Our good friends at Luce Farm, normally come for a lunch and it is a super informative session, so much healing just in bringing awareness around this topic can happen. This retreat we are actually headed to the farm for a field trip which is even better – but wait,
Are you asking yourself here before we get started – WHAT IS Cannabidiol (CBD)anyway ?? YES, and that was the question we get a lot as we introduce this on retreat and and even more past weekend as we shared and educated a larger crowd at Wanderlust here in Vermont. So, to backtrack a bit –
CBD, Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive component of Cannabis that has a WIDE range of therapeutic benefits. CBD is naturally occurring in the Hemp plant and according to the United States own government patent #6,630,507 it supports the nutrition of aging bodies – AND MUCH MORE. Will it get you high? NO – will it help you feel better? DEFINITELY!
It works subtly I like to say, much like your daily yoga practice. You do it/(use it) consistently and are not sure ( exactly) how it works, or what ‘issue’ on a daily intake/or practice it is affecting – but you simply feel better – and are keeping all those ‘things’ that make you feel the ‘other way’ at bay. When I have an acute symptom – a head ache, a sore muscle, trouble sleeping or an anxiety attack, I add another dose to my system and without degenerating my body, I am able to find relief the natural way.
What is CBD treating? Cronic pain, anxiety, nausea, rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, diabetes, PTSD, Alcoholism, strokes, sore muscles, circulatory problems, sleep disorders, cancer, etc etc etc..sounds like a killer daily vitamin to me. See below a brilliant snippet of all the good things that we are finding it helps with:
Where can I get it? Right here in Vermont – on retreat you’ll get a hands on education as we head out on aLUNCH AND LEARN sessions right on the farm, see how it is grown, processed, chat with the farmers, taste it in our food ( click here for CABBAGE CRUNCH CBD SALAD recipe!) and feel it during one of your massage sessions relaexing you into the spae you want to be on retreat.
Before or after a retreat? – YES, Luce Farm ships to all 50 states so you can keep your hands on it!
