CBD Lifted from USADA’s List of Banned Substances & What This Means for Fighters

CBD has previously been on USADA’s list of banned substances, preventing fighters from taking advantage of the healing and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD. The removal of CBD from the list of banned substances opens the door for fighters – arguably some of the people who need CBD the most – to finally embrace the benefits of CBD.

Fighters are constantly beaten down in competition, resulting in aches, pains, and sometimes chronic inflammation as a result. Beyond simple bruises, as more research comes out about brain trauma, it is becoming increasingly apparent that individuals whose bodies and heads are continuously battered are in need of extra precautions to stave off long-lasting, debilitating health issues.

The removal of CBD from USADA’s list of banned substances means fighters don’t have to wait until retirement to take advantage of the major health benefits of CBD. Now they are not limited to trying to reclaim their quality of life down the road. They can maintain their quality of life in real time through CBD during their career.

Beyond just being ‘technically’ allowed, the lifting of CBD from the list of banned substances is a step in the direction of fighting stigma against CBD. Weed has a very controversial image in the public eye, and CBD gets caught up in controversy as a result. However, TerpHouse CBD oil is THC free so you can get the health benefits without the THC. Fighters looking to stay alert while maintaining health might be interested in trying our products.

Essentially, as a means of staving off pain and inflammation without the use of narcotics, CBD is killing two birds with one stone: pain and dangerous addictions.  Join fighters like Cain Velasquez and Bas Rutten in the adoption of CBD oil as part of a healthy, preventative fighting career.

The Cost of Living is High and Going Up: Comparing the Cost of Traditional Vitamins and CBD Oil

Let’s face it – we’re all on a budget. Some budgets are higher or lower than others, but at the end of the day we are all trying to save money and get the most utility out of the things that we do choose to spend our money on. When it comes to health, figuring out how to ‘get what you’re paying for’ is extremely difficult. Much of the healthcare industry is becoming increasingly driven by profit – leaving you hanging out to dry.

A modern base price for a multivitamin is about $10.00 per month. The cheapest you can get a ‘multivitamin’ is &10.00 per month, yet most of those cheap vitamins can hardly be called vitamins at all. Cheap supplements are often stuffed full of fillers that make the supplement seem heartier, but truly give you little to no nutritional value.

On the flip side, finding a multivitamin that you trust can put you at -$35.00 or more per month. And that’s only for a multivitamin. Adding in the cost of other supplements can easily put your monthly vitamin spending in the triple digits.

Poliquin’s Foundation Five: 

  1. Multivitamin
  2. Vitamin D
  3. Probiotic
  4. Fish Oil
  5. Magnesium

Using Poliquin’s Foundation Five as a start, the cheapest supplement from each category puts you at $137.00 before tax and shipping. These Foundation Five don’t even begin to cover the list of supplements that many professionals recommend for individuals dealing with autoimmune conditions or other forms of compromised health, with many of those lists recommending 10-20 different supplements.

The real kicker is many of these supplements aren’t even guaranteed to work. In fact there is a lot of emerging controversy over the usage of multivitamins – something many of us thought to be the most fundamental supplement out there. Money gets poured into supplements without any idea of whether they work or not.

TerpHouse CBD oil, at $79.99 , cuts the average person’s monthly spending by about $60.00, and even further cuts the spending of individuals desperately buying 10-20 supplements a month. And it will work. Our CBD oil boasts a host of beneficial properties without the effects of THC. TerpHouse’s founder uses the oil himself for migraines, and TerpHouse will soon be coming out with a series of case studies that show the real effects of TerpHouse’s CBD oil on real customers.

The health industry is selfish and corporate. Many supplements are designed to make producers wealthy at the expense of the buyers. Use a medicine you can trust has your best interests at heart. Our CBD oil might be what you’re missing on your road to optimum health, so give it a try! Feel free to message us on our Instagram or Facebook pages if you have any questions!

Put Your Green Thumb To Work With These Organic Gardening Tips

Many people believe that fruits and vegetables that are grown organically are far superior to regular produce. Instead of buying your produce from supermarkets, you should try growing your own. Read the article below for tips and suggestions on how you can have your very own organic garden at home.

When starting your organic garden, you must be sure you have the proper size containers because containers are crucial for holding your plants. Your containers should be around two or three inches in depth for them to be effective. In addition, you should make sure you have holes in the bottom of your containers for drainage purposes.

If you are growing your organic plants inside of your home or office, it is vital to make sure that the right amount of light reaches them. If your windows are small or receive little light due to their positioning, a plant that requires little sunlight will be more comfortable and healthy. If this is not an option, or you have your heart set on a particular type of plant, consider adding additional growing lights instead.

Create soil for your organic garden by composting. Composting is a wonderful way to re-use some items that you would normally throw away as garbage. It also provides for rich and fertile soil, without the use of chemicals and pesticides. Compost bins are available in many sizes to fit your specific needs.

Make sure your seeds have enough room to grow. It is fine to have many seeds in one container before they sprout, but you will have to replant them as they grow. Use containers that are actually big enough for one plant, and avoid having more than one plant in each container.

You should organize your garden and plan everything. Do not buy seeds if you do not know where you will plant them. You need to plan on the long term for certain plants, and on the very short term for short-lived plants that will need to be replaced very quickly.

Manage your garden hose to prevent frustration. Garden hoses, especially longer or heavy duty ones, can become unwieldy and annoying when you have to drag them around the garden, all twisted up. Invest in a portable hose reel or a stationary one, depending on your garden configuration, to more easily manage your garden hose and make storing it fast and easy.

When first growing a garden, attempt to put as much effort into the first bed as possible. Land that hasn’t been used for a while needs an overhaul to begin changing into a viable spot for plants. Usually these regions either lack the right nutrients or consistency of soil. If you plan to make a garden out of patch, make sure that it has all the right pre-conditions to planting.

To help spread mulch easily, you can use a flat-head rake or a bow. If you are using a rake, you should use the rakes tined edge to pull and spread your mulch. Use the flat side of the rake to even your mulch on the bed. You will want to use a light push then pull action.

Plant synergistically. To naturally repel pests, plant marigolds near nematode-sensitive crops like tomatoes and potatoes. To improve growth, plant legumes near plants that can benefit from the nitrogen they produce. Intersperse pungent plants like herbs and onions, whose scent can repel bugs and animals, with other unscented vegetables.

Add vines to your landscape. You can get a wide range of plants that are vines. Some ornamental, and some fruit or vegetable varieties. Vines can grow up most fences or structures. Use them to create more interesting landscapes in your yard. Have them grow up an awning, and create shade for you.

An important tip for organic gardening that will naturally help prevent disease from appearing in your plants is to move your plants to different spots of your garden each year. This will keep any disease from spreading because the soil doesn’t build up harmful organisms from planting in the same spot each year.

Stop wasting your money on inferior fruits and vegetables from the supermarket. Use the advice in this article and you can start growing your own organic produce.
