In today’s landscape, more and more of the natural areas of our country and world are shrinking, leaving less opportunity for younger generations to experience the beauty of Nature and to forge the connection, or reconnection, of the human spirit to the force that created it. It’s so bad that the current administration has moved away from tourism of public lands and has cut ties with the rangers who once protected these lands, and are now opening them up for deforestation, oil and fracking. So the time is now to experience what is left before it’s all gone.
In the world of attractions, the sky is the limit. I’ve raced go-carts, fueled by adrenaline and competition. I’ve acted as one of the fallen Titanic passengers, getting a glimpse of what it may have been like. I’ve faced my fears and tackled class-4 rapids. I’ve even gone through one of those super intense midnight horror houses, where actors are trained to chase you with chainsaws. But nothing pushed my logic like Trapped Columbus’ MUTATED! A New Strain escape game in Columbus, Ohio.
In a world where capitalism has run amok and a swelling population has pushed our resources to the brink, many of our everyday toiletry and body care products are made with harmful chemicals, cheap fillers, and toxin-rich mystery substances. But hope is not lost, as there are many companies that focus on maintaining a high standard of quality within their wears. I, myself, like to try making my own substitutes, but if time and convenience are important for you, then might I suggest checking out ChickenPoop. No, it’s not a literal name, and none of their products contain any poop whatsoever, but they are a country favorite where I’m from in Ohio, and for good reason.
Chicken Poop is a Kansas company that makes all natural body care products and are most famous for their flagship ChickenPoop lip moisturizer, which is a high quality, all-natural lip balm that has one of the most intoxicating scents on the market.
Personally, I feel a deep inner peace when I’m no longer subject to the hustle and bustle of city life, and when I’m so far out in the natural wilderness that I no longer hear humans or machines, and am totally surrounded by the wild majestic forest. When all I hear and see is the life that calls the woods home, then I am a different person. I think different, feel different, and want different things. I am no longer stressing about finances or trivial problems that I won’t even remember a year from now. Then, add in my favorite people in the whole world, and I might as well die then, because there’d be nowhere else that I’d die happier.
Recently, I had the pleasure of testing some of CBDfx’s CBD-infused products, like their gummies, capsules, vape pen, and RAW concentrate, as well as their CBD rich MCT oil tincture. CBD is the non-psychotropic cannabinoid found in hemp, the male non-flowering part of the plant, which has been found to have inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects, as well as sedating, hypnotic, anti-epileptic and anti-dystonic effects, among other healing* attributes. CBD does not ‘get you high,’ as they say, but it will relax you, soothe pain, help regulate sleep patterns, control certain cancers, stimulates bone growth, and stops the growth of bacteria, as well as it suppresses muscle spasms and convulsions, slows inflammation, reduces blood sugar levels, reduces the risk of artery obstructions, decreases pressure in the blood vessel walls, helps control epileptic seizures, reduces risk of nerve damage, and eases nausea.
For years, I’ve traveled the world seeking new cultures, dynamite experiences, and beautiful places, and while I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time, the wear is beginning to be felt throughout much of my body. From long hikes, city tours on foot, different beds every night, and months spent in a car seat, I’ve put myself through the ringer, and though I’d take nothing back, I must move forward each and everyday with the lingering effects of my travels. But I’ve found help in the form of a newly legal and exciting self-healing* approach.
