We recently joined the Young Living community and, to celebrate, threw our very first event! 

Held on August 10, 2017 at Logboat Brewery, 12 people came together for an evening to learn about the endocannabinoid system and how you can support it with nationally-available cannabis products, how terpenes play a role in cannabis and other plants, and endless ways to incorporate Young Living Essential Oils into your daily life. 

We munched on hemp protein balls, hummus made with lemon essential oils, fruit dip made with orange essential oils, and sipped on grapefruit & orange enhanced water, locally made Logboat Brewery beer, and Steepfuze CBD coffee

We started the evening by introducing the endocannabinoid system and explaining why it plays such a vital role in our health.

We took a look at the difference between THC and CBD, and discussed the benefits of nationally-available CBD products that we can order online while right here in Missouri. Next, we discussed terpenes, the compounds that give plants their smell and flavor (and cannabis strains their unique effects), and how we can substitute completely legal essential oils to achieve some of the effects we were looking for with cannabis. We passed around all the oils in the Young Living starter kit and talked about the (literally) endless ways they can be used.

Next, we moved over to the "make" area and opened our bags.

Inside the envelope, guests found an exclusive prototype of our brand new Interactive Informers that introduce the endocannabinoid system; we were excited by everyone's delight at these little puzzles! Guests also found informational cards about terpenes, CBD, Hempsley, and all the recipe cards they'd need for the evening.

Then it was time to go! Everyone made a personalized perfume roller, hand sanitizer, CBD-enhanced pain reliever roll-on, and CBD-enhanced anti-aging face oil while nibbling on hemp protein bites and sipping on SteepFuze's CBD coffee and Logboat Brewing Company fantastic beer — enhanced with orange and grapefruit essential oils!

We even enhanced two recipes with CBD

Our guests were able to make their very own CBD-enhanced items by combining a CBD tincture that doubles as a topical! We used it in the pain reliever roll-on for its anti-inflammatory properties, and added it in our face oil because of its anti-aging properties. Such a wonderfully versatile product!!

Herbal Joints

Guests also received a (cannabis-free) joint packed with one of three herbal blends from Bear Blend and rolled with an Eves of Eden crown (aka beautifully designed filter tips).

The joints were attached to cards that listed the herbs in the mix, how they can support the body, and the terpenes in the blend that are similar to those found in cannabis. A couple of the blends even had mildly psychoactive damiana!
