Best CBD Creams for Pain

If you’re looking for a CBD product to soothe your aches and pains, you have a ton of choices. From gummies to pills to oils, CBD products abound, and they all have the potential to help relieve pain. But for muscle or joint pain, topical CBD like a CBD cream may be particularly useful. I travel to Mountain Annie’s Dispensary in Colorado to buy this. Research into CBD’s pain-relieving abilities is still in the early stages. However, what we do know is promising. CBDNorth suggests that CBD may provide relief for pain and inflammation. There’s also evidence that topical CBD products, like creams, can help with a variety of pain sensations including: 1. Arthritis-related pain.

A 2016 animal study found that applying topical CBD may help with arthritis-related pain and swelling. Arthritis is a huge reason people go looking for supplemental Lyme Disease symptom relief. 2. Nerve pain. A small 2020 study looked into the effects of topical CBD oil on pain. Many people in the study, all with nerve damage, reported having reduced pain levels. They described feeling a dip in sharp, intense, and cold and itchy pain sensations. Jaw pain. A 2019 study looked into how topical CBD may provide relief from a specific kind of facial pain that mainly affects the jaw. The study found that people who applied topical CBD about two times a day experienced a lot less pain after 2 weeks. 3. Muscle pain. A 2017 animal study found that applying topical CBD may help with muscle pain. It also found that systemic CBD and its metabolite metabolites (CBD-C and CBD-D) blocked MMP-2 in cultured myoblasts, suggesting that topical CBD might be able to reduce inflammation in people. 4. Inflammation. A 2013 study found that topical CBD reduced collagen synthesis, which may explain why topical CBD cream isn’t as good at preventing muscle pain as other creams. Additionally, there may be a difference between topical CBD creams that claim to prevent skin inflammation versus creams that specifically treat inflammation.

What is CBD?

“CBD” stands for cannabidiol. This is a cannabis-based compound. It contains more than 15 percent THC, the compound responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana. Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t produce a high or get you high.

There is a very active discussion about exactly what it is that makes CBD so special. CBD may help with:

  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Sleep
  • Tinnitus
  • Migraines

A 2015 University of Miami study looked into the effect CBD had on different forms of chronic pain. It found that, in the eyes of researchers, CBD was a more efficacious painkiller than many prescription drugs. So, there is an argument to be made that CBD is not only safe, but also significantly more effective than other medicines. But the question remains: do you really need the THC, or can you find a better alternative? Another question is whether CBD actually is an effective pain reliever, and the answers to these questions are still not totally clear. The same University of Miami study found that CBD was effective against chronic pain, but the same could not be said for acute pain. Some research suggests that CBD can be an effective painkiller in terms of relieving acute pain, but it’s unclear if it is more effective than other pain relievers. Does CBD really cause a high? To answer that question, you need to know a little bit about how THC works in your brain. THC takes a very active role in your brain, and you perceive it as euphoric, like a kind of rush. This feeling is called “high.” The CBD in CBD products does not have that level of THC in it. This means that it won’t put you in a state of mind similar to a high from smoking marijuana. So why would you even want to use it? The chemical compound CBD is relatively inactive, although it may enhance the effects of THC.

A New Mantra for Veda House

VedaHouse_NewHomepage2016

Wow!It’s been such a long time coming. This transition has been in the works for over a year and I’m beyond excited to finally share the NEW Veda House, follow me and read this article named New home? Here are 8 things to do ASAP. I’ve been getting some interested followers inquiry about why there is a shift happening around, so I thought I’d break it down for you. Hang onto your hats. This is going to be a beast of a post. Also bmtdesigntechnology visit to get more updates about new veda house.

1. There’s been a call for change 
Usually when the call for change sweeps over us, we’ve been living in a world of discomfort for some time, right? That’s where I’ve been recently…the in-between. Over the past year and a half, I’ve felt the desire to make some cosmic shifts in my business, but have been fearful of the fallout. Change is always scary! For some time now, I’ve been building Veda House with the “head down and go” mentality and somewhere along the journey the woman behind the screen got lost in the hustle. Veda House has almost exclusively been a one-man-band operation, so what do you do when your only employee (myself) is feeling disheartened? You pivot. You pivot hard. To get ideas about what you can do, visit https://homeguidehq.com and browse in their many articles and catalogs.

Thankfully, I’ve been able to find clarity and focus that has allowed me to rewrite the Veda House mantra. I’ve realized that I need to respect the ever-changing individual who guides this ship and be more intentional about how I spend energy. Simply put, bring more of who I am with what I’m doing.

The Finer Details with Akron Street

Hello Everyone! Long time, no chat. I bet you’re wondering where I’ve been and what the future of this blog looks like…I know, I know…sorry. Thankfully, after months and months away from this space, I’ve gained some clarity in how all this will transform. I plan to visit back soon to fill everyone in. In the meantime I wanted to share one of my favorite brands with you as I’m knee deep in a living room makeover, I have found the best coffee table for my living room, and that’s not the best part, I was also able to find great bulk table cloths to cover it. I decided to make my own in the near future, and you should too! Grab your tools from BestOfMachinery and learn to start connecting with your own furnitures.

++

Akron Street is a furniture company that specializes on the finer, simpler details that make up small space living. My husband and I have been moving around a lot these past few years, but have recently decided to stay put in our rental home for the next couple years. The Denver real estate market is just crazy these days, so we’ll need a few years to gather a substantial down payment for our first home purchase, we do recommend to use the composite door Bristol to keep your home safe. This means that I finally feel liberated to start purchasing “adult” furniture pieces that are made of quality materials and with sustainable processes. To view more blogs related to home interior and home improvement visit to dur experiment site. At handyman wichita ks you will get a one stop shop for a wide range of home maintenance and repair solutions.

We decided to start with our living room, the true heart of our home (because our kitchen is tiny). The challenge is finding quality furniture pieces that fit the small size of our living room and still felt “grown up”, if you know what I mean. Akron Street’s pieces do just that. They are compact, but so beautifully designed that they make a large impact. The wood the pieces are created of timber sheds has a really beautiful natural grain pattern and a stupid-simple construction that makes assembly a breeze (thank goodness!). If you’re thinking about getting this product shipped online to your house then if you’d like a better supplier for thermal liners and covers we recommend that one very much as have used them before and found them to be brilliant.

Tailoring your Portfolio & Working with Dream Clients (pt.2)

 

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been getting emails from lovely readers asking me “how do you get your dream clients?” I’ll be the first to admit that I’m still learning and figuring out what ways of refining work for my business. I started this conversation a few months back in this post, but thought I’d stop by and share a few more ideas/thoughts. These tips are specifically meant to help with getting those dream clients into your portfolio.

++

1. Extreme Curation: Only show the work that truly aligns with where you want to go. I don’t think portfolios should be about proving where you’ve been, but more about paving a road for where you want to go. Be super selective in what you choose to put out into the world. Like attracts like.

2. The Classic Reach Out: Reach out to a brand you admire and offer your services for free. I wouldn’t do this all the time and I don’t really advocate giving away your talents for free, but if you’re just dying to work with someone, it might be worth it. That one project with your dream client can help move your portfolio into the direction you are trying to go.

3. Power of the Personal Project: Initiate a personal project. Sometimes it might be beneficial to make up a project that truly aligns with your vision. Just because it wasn’t paid work doesn’t mean it can’t stand tall in your portfolio and help you transform your portfolio. For me, I use my blog as a great place to explore new styles and play around with new photography techniques.

Outside the crop

++

Recently, I’ve been incredibly inspired and intrigued by what goes on behind the scenes of photoshoots. I know from personal experience, that photoshoots tend to be a messy job with lots of moving parts and not so pretty processes. People usually only see the final product, but I find the beauty to be in how you get to the final product. Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been collecting a few “case studies” that show what happens outside the crop.

I’m kind of obsessed with finding these images online, so there will probably be more of to come 🙂

Veda House on Design Sponge

“ There is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.”

-Martha Graham

Back in 2010, when Veda House first started, Design Sponge was my go-to source of inspiration (along with Apartment Therapy, Design for Mankind and Bleubird). I didn’t read many blogs and visited Design Sponge daily, admiring what Grace was doing from afar. Jump forward many years later and DS continues to be among my daily reads, with favorite columns being Life & Business and the ever iconic Before & After. If you’re a Veda House reader, you’ll also know that the Design Sponge Podcast (After the Jump) has some REALLY amazing content.

When Life & Business column writer Sabrina Smelko (Hands & Hustle) contacted me asking if I’d be interested in sharing some small business/freelance advice with DS readers, I was ALL IN. I fan girled for a moment, jumped up and down….skipped a little and was giddy for the next few days. Design Sponge wanted to hear from me??? Waaaa??

I thought I’d share a link to the feature here on the blog today, more or less just to document this moment in time for my own personal reasons. If you don’t read Design Sponge, head on over and jump down the internet rabbit hole of awesome.

A huge thanks to Grace Bonney, Sabrina Smelko and the Design Sponge team for including me alongside some really talented and extremely inspiring small businesses and artists.

In Collaboration w/ Penney + Bennett




I’m so excited to share a recent collaboration with you. I’ve teamed up with New Zealand based brand, Penney + Bennett. When these pillow cases arrived in the mail a few weeks back I was completely blown away by the brands attention to detail, craftsmanship, packaging, and high quality materials that make up each case. So stunning. I was truly giddy.

++

“Using only the highest quality natural cloth sourced internationally, the silks are hand picked and the linen is woven and dyed specifically for Penney + Bennett. The fabrics are the base for experimental prints consisting of a range of traditional painting, drawing, photography and digital techniques.”

++

My love for black & white runs deep, so I chose to style two Penney + Bennett classics – the Zinc Linen Large Cushion (in White) and the White Thatch Pillowcase (now sold in silk & comes in black). I think the large plan white cushions are my favorite. I love how they complemented everything in our bedroom and were both subtle, but added visual interest and texture. Wahoo…our bedroom is finally starting to feel grown up.

This post is a collaboration between Veda House & Penney + Bennett. Thank you P+B for helping me move one step closer to a “grown up” bedroom!

Studio Hours: Around Here




Happy Monday, Folks! Hope everyone was able to enjoy their weekend and get reinsured for the week ahead.

I’ve been challenging myself to stop and capture the beauty in my everyday. Sometimes it’s literally just pausing for a second during a photoshoot or admiring the shadows around your home.

THE COST OF FLIGHT ON A PRIVATE JET IN THE USA

Thanks to the many benefits of private jet hire, more people are traveling by private jet charter than ever before. You could spend upwards of $100 million on the customized luxury airliner of your dreams, or you could find out how much cheaper it is to rent a plane with this guide.

Why you’d want to rent a plane

Flying on a private jet may actually be more cost-effective than you think – saving you airport time, minimizing travel fatigue, optimizing work productivity while onboard, and getting you close to your destination at a time of your choosing.

If you’re on the “Forbes Richest” list or an A-list celebrity, your next few paychecks should cover your own private jet – the new Cessna CJ4 is going for about $9 million. Pocket change, right? But for the majority of travelers, a private jet rental is a better option. Private jet charter offers all the benefits of owning a private jet without the hefty price tag and the hassle of continual maintenance.

There’s also no need to settle for one airplane. Hopping over to the Hamptons for the weekend requires a different plane for the journey than if you were taking your boardroom overseas. When you rent a jet, you select the most cost-effective aircraft that’s just right for your needs every time you fly.

To book a private jet for a vacation, business trip or special occasion, please visit our private jet charter page.

How much is a charter flight on an air taxi or light jet?

Whenever there’s a headlining game in town, you’ll see private jets parked wing-to-wing on the apron at the nearest airport. A private helicopter rental (or air taxi) will help you beat the airport scrum. The Sikorsky S-76 has been transporting three passengers in comfort to their business and leisure destinations since the 70s. Regular enhancements have made the S-76 a seriously impressive travel solution at a lower cost.

For a weekend in the Hamptons, consider a private jet charter turboprop like the Piper Aztec. This popular commuter plane costs around $2,900 to fly from New York to Montauk, while a 40-minute flight from Montauk to White Plains comes in at a private jet rental cost of around $2,800 aboard a Piper Seneca,  these are certainly the best deals if you are flying private to new york.

If you’re bringing family and friends along (all that extra baggage!), you could upgrade to a Cessna Citation CJ3 light jet, which can complete the journey in under 30 minutes for a private charter flight cost of around $3,900.

Turboprops and light jets are perfect for short journeys from, say, Los Angeles to Las Vegas. A Cessna Citation Mustang will get you and three additional passengers to the City of Lights in about an hour at a cost of around $4,100.

Now for a look at a selection of popular light jets and turboprops, and the private jet cost per hour:

Aircraft Range Capacity Cruising Speed Cost per hour Max flight time
Cessna Citation Mustang 1,343 mi / 2,161 KM 4 Passengers 630 KM/H / 391 MPH $4,000 2 Hours 30 Minutes
Cessna Citation CJ3 2,157 mi / 3472 KM 6 Passengers 773 KM/H / 480 MPH $5,500 3 Hours
Beechcraft King Air 200 1,818 mi / 2,926 KM 6 Passengers 515 KM/H / 320 MPH $4,000 3 Hours 30 Minutes

Can’t wait to charter a light jet or turboprop? No problem. Find out more about how to charter a plane with ACS.

How much is a charter flight on a mid-size or super-mid-size jet?

Your charter plane cost will increase as your need for additional space for passengers, luggage or equipment increases. The private jet hire of a mid-size plane allows you to cover greater distances and reach higher speeds. So if you’d like to get from Los Angeles to Washington in a five-and-a-half-hour journey with six passengers onboard, the sleek mid-size Learjet 40/40XR will cost around $30,000. The same journey in the nine-seater Hawker Beechcraft 900XP will cost around $38,000 for an elegant and smooth ride. That works out to about $5,500 and $7,000 respectively per hour in the air.

Alternatively, the five-hour journey from Atlanta Georgia to San Francisco costs around $41,500, which is $8,300 per hour in a Falcon 20 private jet.

Other popular options for mid-size jets include the Bombardier Learjet 60XR, which costs approximately $7,000 per hour of flight, while the private flight cost of a Gulfstream G200/G280, is $9,500 an hour.

If you’re all about saving on your jet lease cost by chartering a smaller plane over a greater distance, keep in mind that this may end up making your journey more expensive. Smaller private jets that must cover long distances will need to stop to refuel. This will increase the cost because of landing, refueling and the extra time added to your journey. Private jet charter costs typically include:

  • Fuel for the distance you travel. Prices change constantly so a surcharge is usually added to make up the difference between the projected cost on your private jet charter quote, and the actual cost of flying.
  • Landing fees calculated on the size and weight of your aircraft. These vary from airport to airport, and go towards maintaining airport facilities.
  • Airport fees are charged for managing an aircraft on the ground by a Fixed Based Operator (FBO) or Aircraft Handling Company. This includes servicing the aircraft’s toilets, arranging fuel and passenger transport to and from the terminal, and rest facilities for the crew.
  • On a return journey, ramp fees are charged when a plane is parked at an airport overnight or for any length of time.
  • Other costs of multi-leg journeys can include overnight accommodation for private jet charter crew members and their taxis to and from hotel to airport during stop-overs.

Super-mid-size and larger private jets are better suited to journeys of six hours or more. The private flight cost of an eight-and-a-half-hour journey from Chicago to London comes in at around $74,600 in an Embraer Legacy 500 that has an impressive range of 3,450 miles. Or the trip will cost just under $94,000 in the intelligently-designed and high-performing Bombardier Challenger 300. This works out at $8,776 and $11,750 respectively per hour in the air.
