I am vocal about my mental health and always share about my struggles and advocacy.
Therapy and medication is my main source of coping with my struggles but I have also learned the benefits of CBD.
According to Medical News Today, cannabidiol oil comes from the Cannabis plant and has become a popular alternative therapy for a range of conditions over the past few years. It has been reported that CBD oil can help reduce pain, anxiety, inflammation sleep issues and more.
Although studies report very few side effects with Using CBD, its effectiveness for various medical conditions requires further research and is not known to curing diseases. Different spectrums of CBD include:
CBD isolate: CBD isolate is the pure form of CBD.
Full-spectrum CBD: This CBD contains all the phytochemicals that occur naturally in the cannabis plant. It also contains some trace amounts of THC, which is the compound that gives you that ‘high’ effect.
Broad-spectrum CBD: This CBD contains all the phytochemicals in the cannabis plant with little or no THC. Some broad-spectrum CBD may contain trace quantities of THC.
Any product made from hemp seed oil will not contain CBD. Hemp seed oil is high in antioxidants, amino acids, and omega fatty acids which is still can be very beneficial.
CBD products with less than .3 percent THC are legal on the federal level, but are still illegal under some state laws. Check your state’s laws and those of anywhere you travel. Keep in mind that nonprescription CBD products are not FDA-approved.
With a lot of research, I have found CBD products that have benefitted me physically and mentally. Once again this is not my main source, but has provided as an aid in my beauty and health care.

My son Franco is four years old and does know the value of toys. If you hand him a brand new race car or the box that it came in he will most likely go for the box.
So far every holiday about 90% of Franco’s gifts are secondhand and because of that he has gotten some amazing toys! One year a friend gave us a Power Wheels because their kids didn’t play with anymore and another year I found an entire kitchen set with food galore for only $20.
I search all year around for toys I know he will love and as it gets closer to the holidays, he will pick 1 or 2 new toys that he really wants.
A few reasons I do is because like I stated before he has no clue, I love hunting for a good deal and dumpster diving is a hobby of mine. Yes, it is also environmentally friendly, but let’s face it- this year is hard for all families and this way of shopping can help relieve some financial stress.
Here are 10 ways you can shop for the perfect second hand gifts for your kids this holiday season.
First things first always check your local marketplace and garage sale groups. I have found a ton of great toys for Franco and mostly get his wardrobe from here also. You can haggle prices and do porch pickup which is my favorite. If you haven’t tried this yet give it a shot here.

This app takes the guess-work out of toy buying. Their toys are sourced with the help of psychologists, discerning parents and kids themselves, helping your kids stay in ‘the zone’ where they can experience joy and contentment, so they can grow into their best selves. They believe too many toys at home can create domestic disorder and even confuse and adversely affect the developing psyche of children. In the long run, all those cluttersome toys end up in the trash. They encourage to swap, sell, or buy of preloved toys so we can be one step closer to a better cleaner environment for generations of children to come.
