My Journey – Tierra Curativa

Tierra Curativa

Welcome Tierra Curativa to Emerald Cannabliss! I stumbled across Tierra Curativa on Instagram. They are about 30 mins away from me, which is something that made me extremely excited. I love to buy local, even better I love Kentucky grown hemp, because I’m supporting local farmers and businesses. Tierra Curativa isn’t seed to sale, but they take extreme care when making their products. Their hemp is grown near Bowling Green, KY, and they get their extract from Bluegrass BioExtract. They produce their products in their ISO standard clean lab facility, which I took a trip too.

My visit to Tierra Curativa was awesome. They are very much like myself, passionate about cannabis. We talked hemp, the future of our businesses, where we thought this industry would end up, and their process. Their team built their clean facilities lab to produce their own products. Tierra Curativa has a huge variety of products – shampoo, conditioner, lip balm, tinctures, beard oil, coffee additives, and topicals. They are pretty new to the hemp game, which is something I love, we essentially get to “grow up together.” They care about their products and the ones using their products. They have a reputable products and put a lot of time coming up with their line. Travis, the Lab Manager, is very knowledgeable on the endocannabinoid system and phyto-cannabinoids. I love networking with people in this industry that can talk about the plant and how it interacts with our bodies. They also believe education over stigma and I plan to team up with them to spread awareness about Cannabis!

Full Spectrum Tinctures

They have three different tincture flavors; mint, citrus and natural. I have tried them all and approve of all the flavors. The natural isn’t real earthy but you can tell what you are taking. Like most natural tasting tinctures it has a nutty taste. They choose to put 500+mg on their bottles because they might contain a little more than 500mg. You will never get anything less than what is on the bottle. Which is something you don’t see often, I love that they are honest about the fact you might get more but you will never get less. Additionally, knowing they batch test every single batch and not just one every so often to update records. I believe the QR code on bottles will become a regular in the industry and I am more aware and looking for companies that do this. It is very effective with what I use CBD for sleep, anxiety, overall balance and calming.

Beard Oil

My husband decided last year, he is going to grow out his beard. After a certain point, he was frustrated with the frizz, puff balls, not laying right, and brittle hairs. I started handing him different oils to try because of course my beautiful plant produces amazing benefits for hair. This one is his favorite – he keeps coming back to it. The smell is manly and refreshing. I have noticed that his beard is fuller and healthier looking. I’m very impressed with this beard oil. They have a beard balm coming out soon, that I got to smell and it smells like men’s cologne. It will be added as soon as they produce it!

Tierra Curativa Beard Oil

Iced Sports Rub

Tierra Curativa Sports Rub

The iced sports rub has 400mg of Hemp Extract and menthol in it, so the smell is very strong. However, with both menthol and hemp extract, the affects are outstanding. When I apply this rub to my achy areas, it warms the area. I felt my muscles relax and my burning sensation immediately go away. A little goes a long way with this rub, so you will not use as much as you might think.

Topicals are localize relief. They shouldn’t transfer THC to your bloodstream.

Body Butter

This body butter goes on smooth and doesn’t leave an oily residue. This doesn’t contain any active phyto-cannabinoids. Hemp seed oil and avocado have amazing benefits for your skin. I have been using this a lot, since the weather has changed. When we hit fall, my hands become extremely dry. This affordable 4 oz jar will last a long time, providing you with moisturized skin.

Tierra Curativa Body Butter

I have really enjoyed Tierra Curativa products, and plan to add more of their products in the future. I do not claim any of these products heal, treat, or cure any disease. I’m simply giving you my experience with these products. Everyone is different, and you may not experience the same as I do.

Stay Blissful,

One Year Using CBD Oil – My Journey

Hemp plants

It has been one entire year since starting my journey with CBD. I am happy to say I feel better than ever. I’m constantly changing brands so I haven’t been committed to one product, however I have noticed a difference since I started using it everyday. I don’t claim any medical claims because legally we can’t. FDA hasn’t set any guidelines or rules on this yet. All I can do is give you my opinion and experiences using these products. Everyone’s body is different, you may have a different reaction than I do. As always, check with a physician before adding anything to your health regimen.

Anxiety

I didn’t realize I had anxiety until I quit smoking cigarettes. The chest tightness, loss of breathe, and the snappy attitude comes on very quickly and is uncontrollable. During the same time, I had some family things happening which enhanced the anxiety. I was started on a pharmaceutical, Lexapro. Over time, it stopped working and CBD was introduced to me. No one really to explain, so I went on a search for some answers. Present day, a year into my cannabis journey and I can honestly say I actually feel good. I haven’t upped my Lexapro and continue to take it with a side of cannabis (hemp-derived). I will eventually go off of the medication, but for now, it is working well.

Sleeping

Sleeping has also improved. I sleep usually all night now, soundly. Before, I would wake up a few times a night and not be able to go back to sleep. I get a full nights rest and do not feel tired the next day.

Body

I have also noticed a difference in my body as a whole. My body doesn’t ache as much. I use topicals for localized inflammation. For example, I pulled something in my neck while moving. I used Deep Relief for two days and added chiropractic care. My recovery time was shorter than it would have been, if I weren’t doing these things.

I am committed to living a full, exciting life with my family. Cannabis has helped me be able to achieve this. I fully believe that adding cannabis to my daily routine has improved my way of life. I do not have to suffer though the anxiety and my family won’t either.

Stay Blissful,

My Journey – Kentucky Hemp Works

Kentucky Hemp Works

This company is amazing! Kentucky Hemp Works is in Crofton, Kentucky and run by 2 inspiring women. I wanted a brand from my state as well as all of my customers. I was told from a customer, I can’t verify that it is true, hemp is like honey. If grown in your region, then it will help combat allergies. I’m trying to verify this information, if you are a grower and know the answers please reach out.

KHW -Hemp Root Salve – Jasmine and Lemon

I’m going to start with the hemp root salve – Jasmine and Lemon. This salve doesn’t have any CBD or cannabinoids. It is made with hemp seed oil, hemp roots, beeswax,  essential oils. I used this on my daughters eczema it cleared up with in a day. Her leg was full of dry patches and I didn’t realize it until it got to the point she couldn’t take a bath because it hurt to be in hot water. We put it on that day and by bath time the next day it was 80% cleared up. The worst patch was still there but not red nor dry looking. I also use this on my hands because they are extremely dry in the winter and spring time. I have noticed a huge difference from using lotion and this salve. My best friend also used this on her eczema and it cleared it up within a day. A little goes a long way with this salve. One tin should last a very long time. It doesn’t leave an oily or any residue and the smell isn’t strong either. It is so good for my family’s skin!

KHW – Hemp Firestarters

Hemp firestarters are amazing. We use these for fires in our backyard. They light up quick and burn for at least 5 mins. The smell is great, it doesn’t smell like cannabis. I always burn my old paper bills and important paperwork I don’t need anymore to start my fires. I do not use as much paper when I’m using these firestarters. These would make a great add on item to your order.

KHW – CBD Tincture

Kentucky Hemp Works tincture tastes earthy because they use the hemp seed oil to pair with hemp extract. This gives you extra fatty acids like Omega -6 and Omega-3. The difference between hemp seed and oil and hemp extract is hemp seed oil is made from the hemp seed by crushing them. Hemp extract is made from the whole plant that gives you the cannabinoids, like CBD. The benefits this tincture gives me is a relaxing, chill feeling. I have been taking this tincture at night to help me relax and fall asleep. Another thing I love about this tincture is that the hemp is grown in Kentucky.

Kentucky Hemp Works is a key player in Kentucky hemp politics. Katie, the founder of KHW, travels to Frankfort to educated law makers and others on hemp. I am so excited to support this company because of the product and what they stand for.

Education over stigma spread the word!

Stay Blissful!

My Journey – Joy Organics

Joy Organics

My journey with Joy organics started with an order for myself to test. Right away, I knew I had to add this to my site. I tried a few things

Joy Organics Lemon drops

Joy Organics Lemon Tincture

I started with the Joy Organics Lemon Tincture, the taste was amazing to me, very strong lemon taste because lemon essential oil in the tincture. This tincture has ZERO THC. This tincture, in my opinion, gives me an uplifting, calm feeling. I feel it gives me energy to tackle my day. I do not use this at night, because I was making lists the one time I did take it at night. Remember, everyone is different and our bodies will not react to this tincture the same.

Joy Organics Face Mask

Joy Organics, also has a CBD-infused face mask, which leaves your face feeling refreshed, hydrated, and soft. I did one treatment of this mask and I love it.


This face mask covers my entire face and stays on well. My face is very dry, so the serum on the mask soaked in very well and left my face looking less red and more flesh colored. I will be ordering more because of how my face felt. Cannabis can do amazing things for our skin. This is why I say education over stigma. This plant has so many amazing properties we are just breaking the barrier on.

CBD Face Mask

Joy Organics Energy Drink Mix

Joy Organics energy drink mix great for on the go. The brand recommends drinking these pre-workout. However, I do not work out. I did drink this one a day when I was feeling run down and tired. I felt much better after I drank it. It tastes good and has ZERO THC. Gave me a boost of energy and able to focus a little better on work.

Joy Organics Salve

Joy Organics salve has been my most popular item. Once I added the salve to the website it sold out within a week, we have more coming next week. I use this on my aches and pains for immediate relief. This keeps my skin smooth, all the while soothing my muscles. It doesn’t leave my skin oily or sticky.

Joy Organics Salve

We are very excited to keep adding to Emerald Cannabliss. If you have a brand that you have used and like please let us know.

My Journey – Lazarus Naturals

Lazarus Naturals

I have been on Lazarus Naturals Standard Potency for a month now. I use 1ml nightly every single night, and a few days a week I do 1ml in the morning. Let me start by saying this stuff tastes AWFUL! I know that isn’t a huge selling point, but to be real none of the tinctures I’ve tried have been very good. They just all taste bad. I do the under tongue method because I have read that it enters your body quickest. I let it sit for as long as I can stand it. My mouth starts to feel tingly and relaxed, then I feel a calming feeling come over me.

My sleeping habits have changed dramatically. I had issues going to sleep as well as staying asleep. Since I have started the Lazarus Naturals Standard Potency, I have noticed that I will fall asleep quickly and stay asleep all night. Some nights, my daughter wakes up or I have to use the bathroom, but that is just #momlife.

I also have a lot of inflammation in my upper back due to my posture and how I sit on a daily basis. Sitting at a desk looking at a computer can cause some major pain and I have noticed a change in how my body feels. I do not feel as bad as I did before taking the oil.

My anxiety is the main reason why I’m taking CBD oil. It has gotten worse over the last 5 years. I suffer from tight chest, shortness of breathe, and a temper. I get very snappy when my anxiety is on the raise. Since taking CBD though out my day I feel calmer, and I feel less tense like I usually do. My anxiety has changed to be not as noticeable. I am overall happier since I have started taking this CBD oil.
