Hemp has long been recognized as an incredible, renewable resource. It can be eaten and used in body care products. Clothing, paper, and construction materials are often made from hemp. Even plastics and biofuels are produced from hemp fibers and stalks. If you don’t know much about hemp, I encourage you to learn more about it. It’s an extremely versatile plant with so much to offer.
I’ve been a proponent of hemp for decades. In grade school, I weaved necklaces, bracelets, belts, and even purses out of hemp. Nowadays, I wear hemp clothing and eat hemp seeds almost daily on salads and in smoothies.
Hemp CBD Oil for Inflammation and an Active Lifestyle
In late 2016, I was diagnosed with a chronic, inflammatory disease. I’ve gone through phases of eating well, exercising, and keeping the inflammation down. But every now and again the inflammation rears its ugly head and, as a result, makes my life miserable. The limited research I previously have done on home remedies for inflammation didn’t yield much. Low sugar diet, high omega 3 fatty acids, tart cherries, extra virgin olive oil… things like that. I never came across hemp CBD oil until recently when I discovered pure CBD oil from Receptra Naturals.
What is hemp CBD oil?
CBD stands for cannabidoil. It’s a non-psychoactive oil — meaning it’s from a type of cannabinoid that doesn’t cause the “high” like that of marijuana. Some people use hemp CBD oil to reduce inflammation and relieve chronic pain. Others use it to relieve muscle soreness or fatigue. As an autoimmune, inflammatory disease sufferer and an athlete, CBD oil definitely piqued my interest.
Please note: I’m not a doctor nor am I suggesting hemp CBD oil will cure all that ails me.
I’ve incorporated Receptra Naturals Active Hemp CBD oil into my every day routine. I take it during meal times or with other foods, but the oil can be ingested directly under the tongue. The berry flavor is delicious for just that purpose.
As you could imagine, I couldn’t let the opportunity to create a new recipe pass me by. I recently created a simple recipe for salad dressing with Receptra Naturals Active Hemp CBD oil! I make a salad full of farm-fresh ingredients to get the most bang for my nutritional buck. A yummy salad coupled with the sweet taste of a berry vinaigrette is a true winner.
Berry Hemp Vinaigrette with Receptra Naturals
- 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 droppers Receptra Naturals Active Hemp CBD oil, berry flavor
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- pinch of salt
- sprinkling of hemp seeds, optional
Whisk all ingredients together. Pour over salad and enjoy. Refrigerate any remaining dressing in an airtight container.
Receptra Naturals has opened my eyes to more possibilities for managing my inflammation and to increase my athletic capabilities. The Active Hemp CBD oil tastes great and I enjoy using it in many different foods and smoothies. I hope you give it a try, too.
