CBD for Cats & Dogs

CBD for Cats & Dogs

Hi Everyone.  I have many visitors to my retail store (and online) that ask me if CBD will help their pets with anxiety.  There are many possible triggers that cause your pet to get anxious.  Loud noises, the presence of a "new" human or pet in the house or wild animal in the backyard can all increase or cause your pet anxiety.  CBD oil can help calm your pet but only if used properly.  What type of CBD oil is right for my pet?  While CBD extracted from hemp is legal in every state there but are many confusing claims out...

Power and the Immune System

Power and the Immune System

Hi everyone. This is the last post on my series covering the five pillars of our immune system: Power,  Blood, Command & Control, Hunters and Cell Walls.  I never thought about what happens when we get an infection or wound. In the other posts I spoke about how we release white blood cells into the bloodstream.  These hunters may spike to be up to 30%  of blood biomass. All those cells have to be replaced so lots of cell division and it takes power to split cells. Have a fever?  During an infection the core body temperature rises.  More power required.  In this case, your muscles are...
