Memorable Quotes:

“CBD is short for cannabidiol and is simply one molecule out of many in the cannabis plant. I think a lot of people hear cannabis plant, and they immediately think of the marijuana plant, but the cannabis plant is kind of like the overarching plant that you can split into the marijuana plant or if it contains less than a certain amount of THC in it, it becomes hemp.” 

“An interesting point is that we actually make our own cannabinoids. That’s why it’s called the endocannabinoid system because we produce cannabinoids, and we actually produce it during exercise, during sleep, all of these healthy practices, but most of us don’t produce enough.”

”It is legal in all 50 states because again, it’s coming from the hemp plant. It’s not a marijuana plant so you’re not violating any federal laws.” 

“I tell my clients that when you start taking CBD, up the amount that you would normally do in the morning. You could take some in the afternoon and then at night so that you build up that reserve in your system.”

“The only side effects I could imagine is if you took way too much, you would probably want to lay down and take a nap.” 

“When I first started Motherhood Unstressed, I was doing a little bit of mommy influencing and that kind of stuff. And so a CBD brand reached out to me to promote their product.”

“Living intentionally to me means starting your day with the intention of like, I know, stuff is going to get crazy. That’s the nature of life. But I’m not going to let these outside circumstances overwhelm me.”

“I can’t control anything else…but I can control how I react to it.” 

“When a stressful situation comes, centering yourself back into that intention, you know, can be so, so powerful.”

“Think about what that does in someone’s life, when you go out into your day, and you’re not constantly reacting to things.”

“CBD is an amazing plant for so many reasons. But it is a great plant for pulling heavy toxic metals out of the ground. They actually used the hemp plant to clean up Chernobyl…So, quality matters.”
