CBD and Sleep: What you need to know

The need for sleep Lack of sleep is the #1 complaint I encounter when talking to my family and friends regarding their general wellness. I, too, have suffered from bouts of insomnia and poor quality sleep. It is downright miserable. We are in the company of many others who suffer the same problem.

10 Healthy School Lunch Ideas

Packing a school lunch for your kids everyday is not always an easy task.  I want my kids to eat a healthy school lunch with foods that contain protein and vitamins but also taste yummy and have some variety.  It drives me nuts when they get home from school and empty out their lunch bag and there’s a half eaten sandwich or wrap and veggies and fruit that were hardly touched because they’re “sick of it”.  What a waste of good food!  I have looked online and collaborated with other parents that are wanting new variations of the "classic" school lunch,

What is CBD?This is a question we hear frequently at Bella Body. In many cases CBD is misunderstood and sometimes unheard of all together. CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a compound found  in both hemp and cannabis plants that has medicinal effects.  CBD does not make people feel “stoned” and actually counters some of the effects of THC.  CBD is one of the many active cannabinoids identified in the cannabis plant and is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.How Does CBD Work?The Endocannabinoid System is why CBD works in our bodies.  Cannabinoid receptors,
