Little fun fact for you all 👀
CBD HISTORY BEGINS IN THE 1940s .................. The first person who was successful in extracting CBD from the Cannabis sativa plant was a chemist who graduated from Harvard university, Roger Adams. 🌿
However, when Adams first managed this in 1940 he wasn’t aware that he succeeded in extracting a chemical compound and didn’t even know what he had done. ⚛️👨🔬 Years later, Adams and other scientists realized what he had done and started researching the possible benefits of CBD. 🧐
Modern CBD history begins in 1946, when Dr. Walter S. Loewe conducted the first CBD test on lab animals. These tests gave proof that CBD doesn’t cause an altered mental state.
That same year Dr. Raphael Mechoulam identified CBD’s three dimensional structure and that’s why he’s often credited as the scientist who discovered CBD. 👀
Further research continued in the 1960s on primates and finally, the first CBD oil meant for therapeutic use was released by the British Pharmacopoeia.
In the next few decades, the research continued. In 1980, Dr. Mechoulam made another breakthrough in CBD history when he ran a study which showed cannabidiol could be a key factor in treating epilepsy.
Although CBD was discovered a VERY long time ago, it has only been readily available in the UK for around 2 years! 🇬🇧 𝘗𝘓𝘌𝘈𝘚𝘌 𝘕𝘖𝘛𝘌: 𝘊𝘉𝘋 𝘪𝘴 𝘯𝘦𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘢 𝘮𝘦𝘥𝘪𝘤𝘪𝘯𝘦 𝘯𝘰𝘳 𝘢 𝘤𝘶𝘳𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘢𝘯𝘺 𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘣𝘺 𝘯𝘰 𝘮𝘦𝘢𝘯𝘴 𝘥𝘰 𝘸𝘦 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘺 𝘮𝘦𝘥𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘭 𝘤𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘮𝘴.

Man is the only mammal that willingly delays sleep.
The higher the altitude, the greater the sleep disruption. Generally, sleep disturbance becomes greater at altitudes of 13,200 feet or more. The disturbance is thought to be caused by diminished oxygen levels and accompanying changes in respiration. Most people adjust to new altitudes in approximately two to three weeks.
In general, exercising regularly makes it easier to fall asleep and contributes to sounder sleep. However, exercising sporadically or right before going to bed will make falling asleep more difficult.
Divorced, widowed and separated people report more insomnia.
Six in ten healthcare professionals do not feel that they have enough time to have a discussion with their patients about insomnia during regular office visits.
More than eight in ten survey respondents think that people often or sometimes misuse prescription sleep aids.
Caffeine has been called the most popular drug in the world. All over the world people consume caffeine on a daily basis in coffee, tea, cocoa, chocolate, some soft drinks, and some drugs.
In general, most healthy adults need seven to nine hours of sleep a night. However, some individuals are able to function without sleepiness or drowsiness after as little as six hours of sleep. Others can’t perform at their peak unless they’ve slept ten hours.
We naturally feel tired at two different times of the day: about 2:00 AM and 2:00 PM. It is this natural dip in alertness that is primarily responsible for the post-lunch dip.
Sleep is just as important as diet and exercise.
According to the International Classifications of Sleep Disorders, shift workers are at increased risk for a variety of chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular and gastrointestinal diseases.
Newborns sleep a total of 14 to 17 hours a day on an irregular schedule with periods of one to three hours spent awake.
When infants are put to bed drowsy but not asleep, they are more likely to become "self- soothers," which enables them to fall asleep independently at bedtime and put themselves back to sleep during the night. (From the National Sleep Foundation.)

Sorry I couldn’t help it! It’s this song I learned when I was a kid growing up in the Philippines. It’s supposed to be a funny one... I’m not sure it is now. 😆 .
Anyway, I’m sorry that my content is 3 weeks old. There’s a constant battle between warmth and cold on my feed as you can see. It’s how I feel these days- hot and cold. A whirlwind of emotions and thoughts. Motherhood. Ha!
Happy Sunday, everyone! Tomorrow is a new week! Let’s try to rest and recharge today. .
Fun fact: Young coconuts are generally smaller and light green. If you knock on the coconut it won’t be as hallow as an old coconut because it has more water. Old coconuts are yellower. And that’s what we were told in the Bahamas.
Freydís Eiríksdóttir was on exploration in Vinland when one evening her and fellow Vikings were attacked by the North American natives. They used a weird noise making weapon that the Vikings had never heard of and out of fear they fled. All except Freydís. She called out to her fellow Vikings - “Why run you away from such worthless creatures, stout men that ye are, when, as seems to me likely, you might slaughter them like so many cattle? Let me but have a weapon; I think I could fight better than any of you.” The men did not listen to her and continued to flee out of fear. She was not easy to scare and stepped out to defend herself. She grabbed a sword, bared her breasts at her enemies, beat them with the flat side of the sword and screamed. This was unexpected for many reasons and scared the attackers. They ran off in fear at the sight of this wild woman. Freydís and her crew decided it was time to return to Greenland because they were greatly outnumbered by the Skræling.

He has wrote a book that describes his life and all the lessons he's learned..even addiction, that is a great read. Also, yesterday was the anniversary of the launch of the New Horizions spacecraft back in 2006. Posted with it is an 8k shot of Pluto! **bonus points if you know what those two black finned objects are on the spacecraft** and ofcourse the Ultima Thule fly-by. And the last pic is from an artist I've followed since 1997, he came up with a song for the Kansas City Chiefs that is just awesome! Hopefully after tonight the Chiefs make it to the Superbowl! Get em boys!
