Name: Sorry For The Wait Cookies
Dosage: 25mg each
Description: Festive Ghirardelli chocolate chip cookies! Besides this month, I have always been able to get orders out within 1 week. Which is pretty good imo. However I had some technical difficulties with my medical card, we’ll say, after needing to use it so much for Hemp Fest April 1st, so orders were frozen for almost 2 weeks 💔 Thankfully I have the most amazing, understanding patients. Still I just HAD to apologize the l.e.g.i.t. way! Sorry For The Wait

Blueberry chocolate smoothie bowl


The first recipe of 30 Days of Veganism is, of course, a breakfast smoothie! Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and you can prepare any delicious smoothie bowl in such a short period of time. This morning I added some cocoa powder to my usual fruit smoothie; it definitely satisfied my chocolate cravings!

Just a side note: I usually eat my smoothie bowls either with added oatmeal or homemade granola. Feel free to take out the rolled oats and substitute them with granola of your choice.


Ingredients:

  • 40-50g of rolled oats
  • 100-125ml of plant milk (depending on the desired consistency; I used soy milk - it has extra protein)
  • 1 tbsp of vegan protein powder (optional; I used hemp protein)
  • 1 tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp of nut butter (I used almond butter)
  • 80-100g of frozen blueberries
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 tsp of chia seeds
  • fruit toppings: banana chunks, kiwi (or any other fruit you have)
  • other toppings: 1 tbsp of nut butter, 2 brazil nuts (for your daily dose of selenium), a handful of cashew or other nuts


Preparation:

  1. Boil the oats with about 200ml of water.
  2. In the meantime, pour the plant milk into a blender, add the protein powder (if you’re using it), cocoa powder, nut butter, frozen blueberries and 1  1/2 banana, and blend it all until smooth. If the consistency is still a bit too runny, add 1 tsp of chia seeds to make it a bit thicker.
  3. Make sure to stir the cooking oats.
  4. Prepare and cut the fruit for toppings.
  5. Once the oatmeal reaches the desired consistency, pour it into a large bowl. Then pour the smoothie over the oatmeal. Add the fruit (including the remaining ½ a banana) and other toppings, and enjoy!

Hey, I don't know if you've covered this before but are there any details on what specifically in marijuana that's harmful for reptiles/what it does? Even without the smoke, just the substances. I've... Got a guy talking about feeding cannabis plants to iguanas

Yeah, the substance itself is actually quite toxic! There’s been a few studies done on marijuana toxicity, but most of them refer to the smoke. There’s a few other citations, but the best comprehensive thing I know of is from this vet textbook called Reptile Medicine and Surgery. The second edition’s fairly recent (within the past decade) and everything that’s come out after typically refers to this book and the stuff cited within. (Side note: This book is an excellent resource and honestly quite worth signing up for the free Scribd trial just to download and have on hand. For most reptile owners, the detailed vet procedure stuff won’t be as useful, but the pictures and stuff about common diseases and how they present is invaluable.)

Here’s what the book’s got to say about marijuana toxicity and what it does to reptiles:

Marijuana continues to be by far the most used illicit drug in the United States. Cannabis sativa has been used for centuries for its hemp fiber, as rope, and for its psychoactive resins. Totally or partially herbivorous captive reptiles may encounter growing marijuana plants or ingest dried stems, leaves, and flowers. The main active ingredient of marijuana is tetrahydrocannibinol (THC). The highest concentration of this psychoactive constituent is found in the leaves and the flowering tops of plants. Hashish is the dried resin of flower tops. The precise mechanism of action of THC is unknown, but the psychoactive effects of this drug are thought to stem from a number of sites within the CNS, including cholinergic dopaminergic, serotonergic, noradrenergic, and GABA receptors. Ingested marijuana shows effects much more slowly than the results of the inhaled smoke; however, the effects of ingested THC last much longer. Clinical signs after ingestion of marijuana include mydriasis, weakness, ataxia, bradycardia, hypothermia, and stupor. The extent of clinical signs after marijuana ingestion is almost totally dose related. Treatment for marijuana ingestion is primarily supportive and symptomatic. Marijuana toxications are rarely fatal because of the wide margin of safety of THC. Activated charcoal administration is recommended to decrease enterohepatic recirculation. Despite its relative safety margin, recovery after ingestion may be prolonged and take up to 3 to 4 days. Fluids and monitoring of body temperature may be beneficial. We have seen two reptiles ingest fairly large amounts of marijuana. A 10-pound Sulcata Tortoise showed no effects after eating four marijuana cigarettes. However, a 6-pound male Green Iguana was stuporous after eating into a “baggie” of marijuana and needed support. Both animals recovered completely. Undoubtedly other “under-the-counter” drugs have been blundered across by reptiles. Various “over-the-counter” drugs kept on nightstands, kitchen counters, or bathroom shelves may be encountered by captive reptiles given free range in the house. For their own safety, captive animals should be confined and all medications kept in their original containers in child-proof and animal-proof cabinets.

So yes, it’s toxic. Do the animals usually die from eating it? Well, no, because the plant itself is relatively safe. Is it a good idea? Absolutely not, why would you put your animal through that??

sophia ... are there certain foods u feel helped clear ur skin ?? i remember u said u had really bad cystic acne prior to becoming vegan. do u take anything else for it or has just being vegan really helped? my dr wants to prescribe me accutane and i'm scared it may make me depressed but i'm at my wits end. is there anything topical u have applied to ur skin that u feel has really helped? love u love ur blog and ur outlook on life <33 thank u

My acne was still there when I went vegan and it actually got worse in my first year of veganism. I went to a dermatologist in this first year and we waited months to get in for the appointment and all he did was say ‘go on the pill or go on accutane’. Then he proceeded to hand me a 5 page booklet of the side effects of accutane… ‘bleeding out of nostrils’ ‘infertility’ ‘depression’ etc etc etc …. I cried when I was reading it lol… At that point in time I was lucky enough to understand how detrimental the pill and accutane can be for our precious little bodies and hormones so I simply refused… I started working at a health food store around the same time as my dermatologist appointment and we had a beautiful naturopath lady who I started speaking to about my skin!! In my first year of veganism I was eating ‘raw till 4′ and was SO unfoundedly afraid of eating fats and salt and I was stressed and ridden with anxiety .. so those things really contributed to my acne. The naturopath made me write down what I eat for a week and answer all of these questions she gave me then she gave me some tips that actually WORKED and really helped me clear my skin. Doctors are amazing but pls remember they are paid to prescribe you things, so they will do so regardless of how badly you need it / how it will help you. Naturopaths are paid but they don’t make any extra money for telling you to eat turmeric for you skin … they just tell you. 

Sorry about this rant but I’ll list some of the things that really help my skin! I still struggle with it sometimes and I’m still working things out, and pls remember everyone is completely different… It’s taken me 4 years to figure out some of the things that truly work for me!!!

- ginger !!! put fresh ginger in your cups of tea. 

- echinacea tea! every single day! I drink the one by the brand ‘yogi’…its called ‘immune support’ 

- eating MORE foods in general!!!!! and whole foods!!!!! I wasn’t eating enough in my first year or two of veganism. Even recently if I’m noticing my skin breaking out, I start to eat more 

- putting next to nothing on my skin!! i leave it alone. do not touch ur skin .. and do not pick at it … My favourite cleanser is aqua marina by lush (I don’t have any right now so I’m using dr broners lavender hemp soap but its too strong for my skin) … I would use aqua marina at night and just warm water in the morning, then I love to moisturise morning and night with the ‘acure’ sensitive skin moisturiser… sometimes I apply makeup but rarely! let your skin breath. 

- controlling stress!!! find ways to centre yourself… meditation ,, creating things, sitting down and breathing … going outside for a walk… talking to someone who keeps you calm! and most importantly do not stress about your skin … you will not have acne FOREVER. and it adds to your character! nobody thinks its gross, nobody sees you any differently, so why should you put yourself down and set yourself back by stressing about it??? 

- eating more fats !!!! seeds, avocado, nut butters … particularly with breakfast …. I don’t know why with breakfast but thats what the naturopath told me to do and I do and it works. 

Sending you copious amounts of love and sunshine and PLEASE try to stay positive about your acne! She is truly beautiful!! 

things i learned on my own about ear stretching
  • tapers (or plugs) for ear stretching come in handy but they are bad for your ears long term. The way it’s shaped can affect the way the stretch goes. They irritate skin and also are made of acrylic which is dangerous for an open place on your skin, like your lobe. NEVER use tapers and NEVER use acrylic. dont care who you are. acrylic anything is just bad.
  • the best way to keep your ears clean and non irritated are sea salt soaks when you first stretch. But oil is best. Vitamin c enriched oil is the heslthiest. Many piercers have told me this. I use unrefined hemp seed oil. A lot of people prefer jojoba oil. I suggest procuring some to clean your ears every day or at least every other day. The smell of them drying out is not pleasant and the irritation is no fun. Seriously, get some. Your ears will be thankful. You can buy it at any store or order it online. A little goes a long way.
  • hot topic is horrible with pricing and encouraging acrylic use. you can find better plugs & prices basically anywhere else. If it’s cheap, it’s probably too good to be true.
  • stretching your ears too fast is DUMB, you’ll either rip your earlobe completely open, destroy your lobe permanently, make it impossible to size up or back down or destroy your lobe permanently. It merits a second warning.
  • 2g is “the point of no return.” as in most people cant shrink back down to a normal size. but its not a rule. I have been up to 00g or 10mm and am back down to normal 16g.
  • for a painless transition to a larger size, use emu oil, massage your ears then insert the plug. Make absolute sure it has been over THREE MONTHS since your last size up. If the plug doesn’t want to go in, if it stings, if it bleeds, remove the plug and put your current size back in. your ears are not ready
  • I go by G but most people go my millimeter or mm. It’s easier to stretch up and down with mm and they make ‘in between’ sizes to stretch up. Gauge or G is all even numbers. Skipping sizes is bad for your ears. G is ok but once you hit 10g, you will want to start going by MM.

anonymous asked:

ever since i started using hemp seed oil my sebaceous filaments are??? under control??? like i don't have them at all anymore??? what voodoo magic is this???? bless the divine being that is sasha the skincare goddess??? also i noticed you mention argon, rose hip, emu oil etc for undereyes but never hemp seed. can i use hemp seed near my eyes or is that bad?

yes you can use it under your eyes but i always mention the other because they have a high oleic acid content which is more moisturising and oily

My Skincare Routine

[Two photos taken in similar conditions 6 months apart: freshly cleaned, no makeup, tinted lip balm, similar lighting, no post processing/Photoshop. Click to embiggen.]

I’ve talked briefly about my skin here before. I’ve also talked about how it’s been a trial to me since I hit puberty, and how my insecurities concerning it compel me to trowel on the makeup and airbrush before uploading photos on the internet. We talk so much about fat acceptance and body image (in my corner of the internet, at least) but rarely is the topic of skin brought up, if at all. For my part, the state of my skin has played as great a role in my negative body image as my fat. Most of the “you’ve such a pretty face, if only you lost weight” comments directed at my teenage self were also appended by “…and if you could fix your skin.” This would usually be followed by a list of ‘helpful’ suggestions, none of which I surely could have tried before! Here’s a non-exhaustive list of various unctions, gels, creams and cleansers I’ve slathered on my face (and body) over the past 18 years in an attempt to achieve clear skin:

♦ Mud packs ♦ Coal tar+camphor ♦ Retinoic acid ♦ Ozone facials ♦ Clindamycin ♦ Benzoyl Peroxide ♦ Soluble sulphur ♦ Gentamicin ♦ Erythromycin ♦ Azithromycin ♦ Salicylic acid ♦ Cetaphil ♦ Adapalene+Clindamycin ♦ Clarins’ acne range ♦ Dermalogica’s acne range

There’s pretty much nothing that I didn’t try, except for isotretinoin. I kept saving that as the last resort, as did my dermatologist(s) - a weapon to be deployed only at the bitter end. By the end of last summer, my skin was the worst it had ever been. I was 28, puberty was little more than a shadowy memory, and yet, my skin was breaking out like never before. In my desperation, I finally caved in and convinced my dermatologist to prescribe me the magic pill. I took it religiously for a week. Predictably, nothing happened, but then, I wasn’t expecting anything to happen that soon. Alright, I tell a lie. My skin showed no signs of improvement, but I got the stomach cramps I feared I would, my mood started dipping, and in any case, that shit was expensive. Isotretinoin had failed me. This was the end of all hope.

Last summer was also the worst time in a very long time, as far as my health was concerned. I was hardly eating or sleeping, and mostly subsisting on a diet of nicotine and caffeine. After smoking for about a decade, my addiction had shot up to 25 a day on my good days - the bad ones were worse, much worse. This was aided and abetted by my newfound vice: mugs and mugs of instant coffee. My skincare routine was as pared down as I could make it, and involved coating myself from head to toe with shower gel and washing it off. Looking back, it’s not really surprising that my skin just…gave up.

Luckily for me, by the end of summer, my wheezing and smoker’s cough got so bad that I was forced to cut down - in small degrees at first, and then drastically until I quit for good in December. It’s funny how last year seems so scripted in terms of my fall and eventual redemption, but that’s exactly what happened. If summer was about the destruction of both my physical health and sanity, autumn and winter brought me recuperation and healing. Not only did I quit smoking (and caffeine), I also tried to eat better, stay out of stressful situations, and generally get the kind of physical and psychological respite that I needed. (I also fell in love, and it helped, but that’s beside the point.)

Sometime around October, I also decided to switch over to no-poo for my hair. My hair had been growing steadily ever since early 2012, and in absence of any sort of maintenance and upkeep, it was little more than a shaggy, brittle mess. Raw honey was the first no-poo alternative I used, and while it didn’t work as intended, I found that I really loved it on my face. A bit of internet research indicated that raw honey was antibacterial and moisturising, which made sense, because the more I washed my face with it, the softer and smoother my skin felt. This led to an epiphany of sorts. Maybe, I thought, maybe I’d been going about things the wrong way all this time. Maybe, instead of trying to dry out my skin as much as possible, I should moisturize it. In any case, winter was on its way and winters tend to spell a terrifying combination of dry, flaky, peeling skin and aggressive acne for me.

[The saviours of my skin. I prefer a Lotus Honey I get from Nepal, but this is what I use when I can’t find it.]

Fucking hydration

I decided that every dermatologist I’d ever seen was utterly wrong, and my skin needed to be hydrated as much as possible. The first thing I threw out was the soap - dermatologists had always been insistent on foaming, detergent rich cleansers twice a day, which had ever done me any good. Instead of washing my face with soap, I started coating it with raw honey 15 minutes before washing with warm water. I’d do this once a day.

The magic of the green

Then, while my face was still wet, I’d moisturize liberally with my hemp body butter from The Body Shop. This has been my moisturizer of choice for years, mostly because nothing has ever hydrated my scaly winter skin as efficiently (and I am a firm believer in the magical properties of weed anyway.) I’d have preferred to use their hemp face protector, but The Body Shop seems to believe that their customers in India prioritize skin lightening over efficient moisturising - that’s the only explanation I have for their bizarrely incomplete lines in this country, and the addition of a “fairness” range I don’t recall seeing in the UK. In an ideal world, I’d have made my own moisturizer with hemp seed oil, but that’s not something which is easily available to me.

My current skincare routine

After a bit of experimentation, I finally settled on my ideal skincare routine. I wash once a day with raw honey, and moisturise with the hemp body butter. Depending on the amount of humidity in the air, I reapply the body butter from anything between 1-4 more times at different hours of the day. I tried adding a couple of drops of tea tree oil to one of the applications every day, but it dried my skin out, so I suspect this is something I’ll find useful in the summer.

Once a week, I do a brown sugar and raw honey scrub. This exfoliates my face (and body if I’m feeling super energetic) without making it break out like other exfoliators.

Oil cleansing

When I wear makeup, I remove it with oil cleansing. My initial attempts to oil cleanse were disastrous since I was using olive oil. After consulting this chart, I switched over to primrose which works much better for me. I’d personally prefer hemp seed oil, obviously (if anyone has a source for it in India, please let me know!) Oil cleansing with my washcloth is also a decent alternative to exfoliating with raw honey and brown sugar but I’ve found that honey suits my skin best in the long run. 

Products and products similar to what I use

Since I started my ‘natural’ skincare routine, I’ve only had one breakout when I wore makeup three days in a row. I’ve been trying to avoid makeup since then, and I only dabbed on a bit of concealer around my eyes and on the blotchy bits of my face for the last outfit shoot. My skin looks less perfect and featureless than usual in those photos, but I eventually hope to come to a point where I can feel confident with just a tinted moisturizer. Not only is my skin clearer now, my undereye circles and lips have become lighter as well. I don’t think my skin has been this good since I was 10 and crashed into puberty like a brick wall. I’m certainly not going to claim that going all new age-y and hippie is going to work on everyone’s skin, or all kinds of acne, and some people might not respond to anything other than isotretinoin and its like, but I think there’s some truth to the fact that in certain cases, acne can be exacerbated by aggressively drying out skin as dermatologists recommend. I’m not a medical professional by any stretch of the imagination, but I have suffered quite badly because of my zits and the resulting insecurity/ low self esteem for an awful long time now, and this was something unexpected that worked for me. So if you feel like nothing short of nuking your face is going to get rid of your zits (and if you aren’t allergic to any of the things I listed) you could give this a shot! And even if it doesn’t work, you won’t have spent a fortune, AND you’ll have some delicious raw honey for your pantry.

Also, it’s important to distinguish raw honey from commercial varieties, and this is an useful guide.

Mama Cat’s Spring Cleaning Cauldron Candle

Mama Cat knows that anytime is the perfect time for spring cleaning. She also knows that the closets may not be the only thing that need to swept out. Sometimes when a room or house gets to muddled up with stress, doubt, fear, anxiety, etc., the air needs to be swept out as well as the cobwebs in the corners. (Yes Mama Cat saw them and yes you need to get them out of here because they are collecting dust.) This little cauldron candle is super simple to make and will help clear the air. However, opening a window wont hurt either.

Needed:

a small cauldron

5 tea lights   (Mama Cat used this combo to make a light pink but whatever colors you would like work also)

scissors

a microwave safe bowl

cord that will be safe to use for a wick (Mama Cat used hemp cord)

a stirring utensil

herbs of your choice that you feel will help cleanse your area 

(Mama Cat used the ones below)

Putting It Together:

First you need to separate the tea light from its tin and wick. Gently tug the tin from the bottom and it should pop right off. From there you should see the small disc that anchors the wick. It may take a little digging but it should slide out the bottom. The end result should be close to this.

Once you have all the candle separated, place them into the bowl and carefully melt them in the microwave. 

Now it’s time to make your wick. Tie the end of your cord to your cauldrons handle. if your cauldron does not have a handle, get a pencil or something of the sort that will lay across the top of your cauldron and tie the end to that. Measure the length it takes to reach the bottom of your cauldron and snip it there. Now carefully dip your cord into the bowl of wax.  It should end up looking close to this.

Now comes the fun part. Gently pour a small amount of the melted magma wax into your cauldron. then layer on whatever herb you have chosen. Repeat this process until your cauldron is just about full. This is how Mama Cats looked.

From here all you need to do is to be patient while cools. after it has completely cooled and is once again solid, trim the wick to one half inch (1/2′) and enjoy.

Reminders: MELTED WAX IS VERY HOT. When the candle is burning make sure to keep it in a safe place, away from anything that could catch fire. Also your cauldron will be VERY HOT while the candle is burning. Please also just use common sense when working with fire.

Response to Jeff Sessions ideas about Cannabis in America

I see his point, not everyone benefits from Cannabis decriminalization and legalization. Definitely not his buddies at the Pharmaceutical companies, and the occasional person that struggles to separate cannabis use from when they should and shouldn’t use it.

BUT, to know that the term “Marijuana” was created in order to target Mexicans and other minorities is even more important than the occasional user, this is much greater than “getting high, man”

Cannabis is a product that could replace using trees as paper, it could also be used as an alternatives to plastic waste, and is clearly used as medicine and has many other uses for our health and environment.

The constitution was made out of hemp, the sails used to bring Europeans to the Americas was made out of hemp, and their are records of humans using hemp for medical and other purposes for centuries before us, AND cannabis was not a big deal for a long time in America, it was very common for hashish to be used in medicine and other products. So why now? (That’s a question for you to answer)

The US government OWNS the patent to Cannabis, don’t believe me? Google it. (U.S. Patent No. 6,630,507) We own it, and for our own government officials to say it’s useless is simply hypocritical.

Yes, some may struggle (a very low number I might add) but to say that it is on the same level as real problems in this country like heroin and cocaine is an outrageous statement.

darling shell! your hair is so silky and beautiful! What is your beauty routine and/ or what product do you use?!

It takes a lot to serve looks like this every day!! My biggest tip is not to wash your hair every day, cause that dries it out terribly!! Always condition it when you shower or bathe(hopefully with something reparative! Red and I both use Hemp oil conditioner!) and try to avoid using heat if you can! 


You’ll all look gorgeous no matter what you do to your hair, though!

What do you use as substrate for your pet? :>c

i use a hemp substrate ( https://www.facebook.com/goodolehemp/ ) that was well recommended to me by a breeder associated with pollux’s original owner (he specializes in hognoses instead of royals). they sell big bales of it, like the 30lb i picked up at the show with my gf was $15 (plus its locally grown).

it has a lot of uses as you’ll see from their fb, they use it as a mulch, for horse paddocks, early-season plant insulation, so on.

still a bit niche in the scene and can have some of the same issues as the wood-type beddings but maintaining a good humidity isn’t as difficult here in wisconsin as it is in say, arizona. but compared to normal chips, it DOES retain water better, like pre use of a ceramic (che) he was able to maintain 50-60% humidity in a tank/screen setup fairly easily, which is usually a bit hard.

lot of ppl online conflate it with wood beddings tho and it’s not the same, pieces are much smaller, less wood dust, and it still lets them burrow well. but hemp runs no risk of having pine or anything dangerous in it, oils-wise.
