Mother’s Little Helper No More - There’s a New Kid on the Block

Can it be more than a half century ago that the Rolling Stones brought attention to an already prevalent problem within our culture? The use of benzodiazepines, such as Valium, had already become widely prescribed to counteract stress and anxiety, but at what cost? Now, more than fifty years later, benzos are still a major problem and when combined with opioids, the results are often fatal. Let’s look at some statistics before moving on to that lovely new kid on the block, CBD, that poses none of the risks but most of the benefits.

Latest Data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse

According to the latest data released by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, NIDA, a minimum of 115 people OD on opioids each and every day. Although benzos, as they are often referred to, are not opioids, they are often used in conjunction with opioid pain killers and herein lies the problem. According to their research, at least 30% of all opioid overdoses involve the use of benzodiazepines like Valium, Xanax and Klonopin

Furthermore, the number of benzodiazepines prescribed has risen from just about 8 million in 1996 to an overwhelming 13.5 million in 2013. Unfortunately, that’s the latest data listed on the NIDA website so you can probably safely assume that now more than 14 or 15 million prescriptions for benzos are written each year in this country alone. Benzodiazepines are highly addictive and can suppress the breathing, so when combined with opioids also known to suppress respiration, the result could be (and often is!) fatal.

Hey Mom, Meet the New Kid on the Block

With all of that in mind, the thing to consider is that CBD oil is now legal in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. As the non-psychoactive component of hemp (marijuana) plants, there is no risk of getting high but you reap all the benefits of a natural remedy for pain, stress and anxiety. Now there is a way for moms to cope without the use of benzos and the relief they derive from cannabidiol in no way interfere with function or cognition. 

In fact, one of the leading sites for wholesale hemp oil,, says it all in the name! If you need help coping with the daily stresses and anxiety of motherhood, you might want to consider natural, non-addictive remedies like CBD oil.While there are other benefits to be had in cannabidiol, another major benefit to overworked and overly-stressed mothers, is the fact that CBDs are highly effective pain relievers. 

The Best of Both Worlds

So then, you can conclude that this new kid on the block, CBD oil, can give you the best of what opioid pain killers and benzo stress relief can offer. CBD oil isn’t addictive and it can be safely used without worry that you will be too foggy to care for the little ones as there are no psychoactive properties. A drop or two under the tongue once or twice a day and you’ll be gladlywelcoming that new kid into your home. Are you looking for safe and effective relief? Check out cannabidiol that will give you all the help you need - mother’s little helper for the new age.

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
