What makes YSC different from other CBD companies?

Let me explain this from my point of view. I started as a client with YSC and now I am a team member here. The knowledge of CBD is what drew me in the first place. These individuals did not stop with a simple basic understanding though. They took their research seriously because they truly did care about the individuals they were working with. The compassion and knowledge were far beyond any I had seen elsewhere. Today as a team member I am involved in research, blogging and working with clients one on one because this just really spoke to my soul and filled a need in me to be healthy in a natural way. As a company, we truly do use our own products and feel everyone should be on CBD. I watch from the inside as I help with the research and clients, I am amazed at the levels we go to in research. Our bodies have an Endocannabinoid System with receptors that are designed to receive the CBD and begin a natural process of healing internally and we all know that here at YSC. Those receptors regulate almost every biological process in your body. We wanted to make our CBD even more powerful and more synergetic to the body to target certain issues with individuals and began to work with terpenes. There is that word again, “terpenes”.  Terpenes are very beneficial to health issues and have been well documented to help. Terpenes come from plants. So, there you have another natural plant compound. Plant-based compounds unchanged are the most natural things on earth.

YSC has a unique way of connecting with people and we truly do want to help. We personally test our products before they go on the shelves. We also have independent certified lab testing results. We will listen to you and educate you so you may make an informed decision. So, we invite you to come to sit with us here at YSC, “let’s talk CBD” and experience the difference with us. I truly feel these are the very things that make YSC different from others in the industry.

Consistency and Dosing are Key When it comes to CBD!

Is CBD going to work the same for everyone? No, each individual person is different starting with their size (structure) and on to internal chemical integrity within the body and many more reasons. Depending on the body’s dependency on medications (over the counter or prescription) can create barriers.

In the years that I have been working with CBD and Terpenes, “OH did your eyes perk up” when you saw the word Terpenes? Terpenes are basically essential oils that give off certain aromas and a taste, in fact, terpenes are found in all plants. Terpenes have been well documented to have very beneficial health qualities to them and they can induce a synergy to the body when combining them with cannabinoids.

YSC as well as myself understands that one shoe does not fit all. YSC has the ability, knowledge, and experience to create specific terpenes blended with CBD to fit an individual’s needs in our very own lab.

Our mission is to help and guide you through your journey, from finding the right blend of CBD and Terpenes as well as the right dosage. Getting your Endocannabinoid System to what is known as the Homeostasis (Internal Balance) is our ultimate goal.

Keep in mind issues did not happen overnight. One of the most important things that I have learned is not to give up and be consistent!

I invite you to experience the difference of Your Sunshine Company (YSC Terpene infused CBD) call 417-544-4481 to set up a consultation with our top expert and formulator and put a little Sunshine in your Life.

The Spiritual Side of CBD – Emotions and Whatnot

Trying to find the stillness within ourselves can most often be difficult at best. Well, did you know that is a true aspect of emotions? Our emotions are connected to our spiritual side whether or not we believe we even have a spiritual side. Our spirit can be high or low just like our emotions, as a matter of fact, our emotions will dampen the spirit within us if we allow them to do so. Well, our emotional side is very important to our physical health and our spirit. A person’s spirit is an expression of energy created by the conscious part of your soul, your awareness. The spirit is defined as the non-physical part of a person which is the seat of emotions and character; the soul.  Our emotional side is controlled by hormones within the brain known as brain chemicals. These hormones can sometimes become unbalanced causing emotional distress and life situations can also cause us emotional distress. There is a natural balance of brain chemicals to keep us all emotionally sound and sometimes those hormones can become unbalanced. Those changes will affect your spirit and your spirit is such an integral part of your life. So why would we allow our emotions to dampen our spirit and our life?

Did you know that CBD interacts to receptors in our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that are dominantly found in the brain and spinal cord where certain hormones are home to? You could help control your hormones with CBD and have an all is well spirit. Truly create a complete Homeostasis (Internal Balance) within yourself by feeding your ECS. Be the one in control of your own health, physically and mentally. Allow your spirit to flourish. Now, I realize that situational events cannot be controlled but what if you could go through an event and handle it with a stillness emotionally and spiritually? I would like to think that we all strive to have awareness of our own spirit in a way that is natural and effortlessly. Be the one in control of your emotions and spirit. So, connect to your higher power and your own spiritual side. Allow yourself to be complete.

Here at YSC, I have walked the journey by using Terpene blended CBD products and witnessed others do the same. As the journey has progressed for me and others, I have witnessed the ability of the CBD products transform peoples lives emotionally and physically. I have seen their spirits blossom beyond belief. I know my personal walk was fairly intense at times. Once I got past the mental side of my illness and connected to my own spiritual side the true healing began to take off. I encourage you to make your own spiritual connection and awaken something brand new within you.

Let’s get real about the Pros and Cons on Medical Marijuana and CBD & other Cannabinoids derived from Hemp!

More and more states in the United States are legalizing Medical Marijuana today, so it is time to look at the subject on a lot of people’s minds. Medical Marijuana is defined as herb cannabis or marijuana (Cannabis Sativa L including its constituent cannabinoids THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids) prescribed by a physician to treat certain medical conditions. Typically having higher amounts of CBD and lower amounts of THC. I think it is high time to point out a few things people may or may not know about the issue. The federal government still has marijuana listed as a class 1 schedule drug in the Controlled Substance Act (CSA), in December of 2018 the President signed the Farming Act of 2018 which takes Hemp out of the CSA and places it into an agriculture category making it legal federally to cultivate and produce products from. There is deception out there as to the benefits of Medical Marijuana versus the benefits of CBD derived from Hemp by different groups for whatever their reasoning because if you really think about it, we already have available to us the exact same cannabinoids in Hemp. 

As of January 2019, there are 33 states to legalize medical marijuana. The laws vary from state to state, like how it is produced and distributed, how it can be consumed, what medical conditions it can be used for, and the legal amounts to be possessed by an individual.  The commonality of all the states is it must be prescribed by a physician. Each state varies by the physician requirements. Now the federal law states that it is a controlled substance and that means per certain federal laws you may not own, possess or purchase a firearm as a cardholder of medical marijuana. Some of the states that have legalized it have stipulated some of these issues in their individual medical marijuana laws.  

Have we really thought about how to go about getting a physician to prescribe medical marijuana for us? Some states stipulate that you must have a primary care physician prescribe it for you. Also, have we thought about the Medical Facilitator (Hospital) associated with the doctors? Will their policies advocate for or flat out deny access through their associated doctors? Each state will vary somewhat on covered conditions deemed necessary to obtain a medical marijuana card.  

I think the white elephant in the room is the simple question of “Will insurance companies cover medical marijuana?”. Sure, some insurance companies may very well cover the cost after deductibles and spend downs have been met, but you will have some insurance companies that will hold out and deny coverage on it, for the simple fact that it is still federally considered an illegal drug.  

As the laws in the country are changing, we already have had available to us a natural path that is legal and has shown to benefit some health conditions in some scientific studies. It is CBD derived from Hemp that is high CBD and low THC, containing no more than .03% of THC. Meaning you could receive the benefits of the cannabinoids without getting that stoned or high feeling that THC produces. Hemp is also a family member of the Cannabis Sativa L plant and contains the same cannabinoids as Medical Marijuana. People are sharing their personal stories about how it has helped them. Here at YSC we have seen and heard many of these stories. We do not make any medical claims, but we can educate and inform you from our experience. We have spent countless hours researching the subject and talking to people every day about it. Our experience has been driving us to be compassionate and knowledgeable and to become the very best at what we do. Our goal is to share testimonies, inform, and educate individuals so they may make their own choice with confidence. You will find that our team will explain different blends to you; Broad Spectrum with no THC content with CBD Isolate and specific Terpene blends or a Full Spectrum blends containing minute amounts of THC and other blends. With CBD derived from hemp, there are currently no exceptions on how to consume it. There are CBD Rich Hemp Oils that can be vaped on, taken sublingually, and used topically. There are even CBD Rich Hemp Oils that are water soluble for use in foods and drinks, there are CBD Hemp capsules and there is CBD Hemp Flower for smoking. So many possibilities to fit your specific needs. You don’t need a doctor to prescribe it for you. You may continue to keep your right to own, possess and even purchase firearms should you choose to use CBD derived from Hemp over Medical Marijuana.  

Well, that definitely leaves you all with some food for thought! Don’t forget to look us up on face @ https://www.facebook.com/yoursunshinecompanyllc/ and join our “let’s talk CBD!” group @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/742559945932007/?source_id=509259055920453 you may visit us in person at our retail locations (Puff Smart & B-Town Vapory) in the Branson/Branson West MO area.

Know your CBD product!!Don’t be deceived!!

Misunderstanding labels can lead to deception in the CBD industry, especially with the ever-changing laws. Not only have the federal laws changed when it comes to hemp, but individual state laws are changing as well. Some companies in the industry are using these changing laws to their advantages to confuse and deceive people. So, let us talk about CBD Rich Hemp Oils and the difference between the plants that CBD can come from. Also, we can talk about the difference in an isolate and a full spectrum product. Understanding these differences can help keep you from getting fooled.

CBD and THC are cannabinoids from the cannabis family of plants that have shown promise for medicinal benefits in some studies. Talk around the nation from individuals using CBD is at an all-time high today, and we think for good reason. A majority of the American people are getting back to a more natural approach of living, like using CBD Rich Hemp Oils.  The hemp plant and the marijuana plants are both plants in the cannabis family, the Cannabis Sativa L. Hemp has higher non-psychoactive cannabinoids and low THC the psychoactive cannabinoid so the chances of getting high or stoned are just not present with this plant. Marijuana has a higher THC content and can induce a stoned or high feeling when using. The difference between the two plants is their chemical composition in cannabinoids. Ok then, CBD Rich Hemp oil is derived strictly from the hemp plant. Some CBD can be derived from the marijuana plant. Here at YSC, we have seen many good results from our clientele using the CBD Rich Hemp Oils derived from the hemp plant. Most everyone in the CBD industry can agree that the most adequate way to extract the CBD from the plant is through a C0₂ process, simply meaning cold-pressed.

Most people want to talk about milligrams of usage, however, that can truly be misleading too. There are several factors that can play into the mg usage for individuals. Mg dosing can be very different for different individuals. We have learned here at YSC an isolate product with strong terpenes can make a difference in usage. An isolate product most times is made with the CBD isolate, that means there are no other cannabinoids in that product. A full spectrum product will contain all the cannabinoids from the plant it is derived from.

One needs to look for quality in their choice of CBD products, also look at the labeling on those products. Make sure you understand the ingredients in the product. It is important to ask for lab reports on your products to be sure your CBD is what it says it is. So, I think understanding some of the information in this article can help.  Be wise and don’t get fooled.

All of us here at YSC have dedicated our time to educate individuals when it comes to CBD products. We have made it a priority to understand each of our products fully and put the utmost accuracy using only the best ingredients. We have been talking to folk about CBD for years now, in turn, this motivates us even more to become the very best at what we do. Our hope is to cut through some of the confusion for the individual and to help them make an informed decision on their CBD journey.

A CBD Story – Shirley’s Journey with CBD

 Have you ever had that devastating moment that you hear that someone you know is afflicted by a terrible disease? Most of us have. Here at YSC we have consulted with many people that suffer from terrible diseases and afflictions. As a matter of fact, our lab creates special CBD oil blends and we also have become very familiar with Terpenes and what they can do in conjunction with CBD here at YSC. 

One such individual stands out to us right now. Her name is Shirley. She came to us in April of this year from Kansas with late stage ALS. Oh, how we remember the day she came in as if it were yesterday. You see, Shirley was dead set against using opiate pain meds which is one of the reasons she chose to try the use of CBD. She was such a caring and sweet soul. Shirley was starting to lose her speech at that time. She had lost the use of her right arm completely, it was in a sling. We also believe breathing had started to become difficult for her as well. Her first purchase of CBD was a premixed blend of 1000mg CBD full spectrum and a topical salve. We talked with her often to see how she was doing. We could hear, in the phone calls, improvement with her speech very quickly. By May 2018 we were formulating a special blend just for her. Shirley reported to us that her arm started to become more mobile, of course hearing this just delighted us. As time passed Shirley began to live life again on her terms not the on the terms of the disease she was living with. Shirley did not use medications for pain nor did she use breathing apparatuses to help her breath. Shirley was enjoying life with her family again.  Shirley was admitted to a care facility and spent her last days making beautiful memories with her family.  Our entire team here at YSC was so moved and touched by Shirley, in a nutshell, she defines the passion of our company. Whether you are dealing with Anxiety or something as horrible as ALS we will take the time to listen and educate you so that you can make an informed decision on your CBD journey.

CBD-Nathan’s Story

Hey there, all of you! This blog is a little different from the usual ones. I wanted to share a more personal blog this time. You see,  we have had a few changes in team members here this year.  We hear stories from people all the time here. Our team is a very passionate and knowledgeable team that truly cares about the well being of the body and mind. The following is just one of the stories from one of our own personal team members here at Your Sunshine Company as written by the team member himself.

“Nathan’s Story”

“I wanted to start this by saying CBD is amazing! I am 19 and I just recently started taking CBD every day. It has only been a week, but I can tell that it is working! The normal person should take at least 15mgs a day to keep the body in harmony. Since I have been taking it, I have noticed that I am more focused, my personality has gotten better, and my back doesn’t hurt anymore. When I noticed that my back wasn’t hurting, that’s when I realized that this stuff really works! I have had back pain since I was in the 3rd grade and now that I an on CBD it has made my mood better, like before I was in pain and some days I had to put on an act to seem ok and happy. Now, I don’t have to act like I am ok because I am. I have people all day coming into the store and saying how it has changed their lives and it has changed mine. I plan on taking CBD for a long time and there are so many types of CBD products out there to take. There are topicals, oral drops, capsules, edibles and vaporable. I personally take Tranquility from Your Sunshine Company and I take it as needed but I at least take 15mgs to keep my mind and body at peace. I know what some of you are thinking, you’re just 19 and you don’t need to be on CBD; or you’re saying that it is for medical use but what you don’t understand is that the body is meant to receive CBD and it helps keep you from needing it for medical use. Everyone should be on CBD to keep your body in a harmony.

Nathan Clark.”

Hey, did you know THC can overload the Endocannabinoid System?

It has come up several times in many conversations, is THC better than CBD and is CBD useless without THC? In my opinion, the answer to both questions is no. The reason I say this is because of the actual people we have been working with over the last 6 years. This is where science meets fact because of the actual proof we have witnessed in these people’s lives. In recent online conversations, I have been told that CBD is useless without the combination of THC. I could not accept that statement simply because I myself have been a living testament to the fact that one can truly get the healing power of CBD without the THC. I chose this path because I truly was getting sicker on the pharmaceuticals medications I was taking, not to mention the number of medications was growing to help alleviate the side effects brought on by some of the medications. I am in no way saying that pharmaceuticals don’t have their place. They just don’t in my life. I was searching for a better and more natural way to heal myself. What better way than going back to a plant-based natural medicine. The Native Americans have been using hemp for 1000’s of years. Ok, enough rambling on about me. So, I started trying to find more information about CBD and THC.

I read in some of my research online that humans and most other animals have what’s called an “endocannabinoid system” (ECS). The ECS includes a network of receptors throughout the body that allows us to feel high when THC is consumed. But is that the reason we have an ECS, to begin with – to get high? My short answer: No. The cannabis-induced euphoria we feel is more than likely best thought of as a biological afterthought. Our ECS allows us to get high, but that is not why we have it. We know this because the ECS existed long before humans developed any sort of relationship with the cannabis plant. In fact, the ECS was around before the cannabis plant even existed. I found that the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is important to our overall health. The word endo meaning within.

Researchers have investigated the history of cannabis and estimate that somewhere between 34 million and 6.3 million years it evolved long after the ECS had evolved in animals. So, in my interpretation and experience with CBD, I feel confident in saying the ECS was not intended for us to get high on. It is our internal healing center with its receptors working hard to keep us healthy. I like to say the human body was hard-wired to receive cannabinoids in the most natural way. Another one of my phrases is “I am getting high on CBD, and not getting stoned on THC”. The body responds to CB cannabinoids in such a way that it truly feels good.

I found out some interesting information floating around out there, as to say when in Rome…. Well not really. I did find in some of the information that THC can overwhelm the ECS system. So, I feel it is important to pass that on to all of you.

Say what?A daily dose of CBD could keep the doctor away; CBD for everyday use is beneficial to everyone!

The amazing benefits of CBD have recently exploded in the public eye, but did you know daily supplemental usage of CBD could benefit a person regardless of your health status? Yes, that’s right!

So, let me share with you my understanding of daily CBD supplemental usage. It helps to improve the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoids to promote balance and homeostasis. Don’t know what homeostasis is? Well, it is the ability to maintain internal stability. The homeostasis properties make your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) stronger. CBD directly interacts with your ECS. The ESC is your body’s way of regulating numerous internal body functions including mood, sleep, appetite, inflammation, and immune function. So regardless of your current health state daily CBD usage could benefit you.

Cannabinoids found in hemp work together in what we know as the “entourage effect”, and specifically with natural terpenes found in hemp. Terpenes are the fragrant essential oils found in hemp and when combined with CBD can create a perfect harmony in your ECS (entourage effect). This provides the balancing effects. There are numerous benefits to this balance.

CBD has been known to have many benefits to help people with their health issues, but just think what you could help and/or avoid by taking a daily regiment of CBD. It is recommended for the average person to take at least 15mg of CBD daily.

CBD can supplement the body with nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, terpenes, and other flavonoids. Sometimes with our busy lifestyles, we fail to eat a balanced diet and with the supplements CBD can provide that would help to maintain our internal nutrients. The cannabinoids like CBD from hemp can build up in your body and stimulate the ECS receptors. This would only help to make your ECS become more active and sensitive to stimulation. It would improve your ECS to achieve and maintain homeostasis in your body. So, it may not be a necessity to take CBD supplements daily, but as a preventative measure, it could be considered wise. It could help keep your body running like a well-oiled machine, and I would like to think everyone wants to have that. There is an old saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”, could we say something along those lines about daily use of CBD? I would like to think so.
