My personal experience of CBD oil

As of last week (July 2019) we have started to sell the popular legal version of CBD oil. I thought to help people out I would share my personal experience with using this. Any opinions and views are mine only and do not reflect the companies opinion on this subject.

CBD-OilFirst off, what is CBD oil?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most active chemical compounds of cannabis (marijuana), there are 113 of these active ingredients found within the plant.

The Etymology of Hippie

Etymology

The Etymology of HippieFirst off, let’s start with what etymology means shall we. I know some have never heard the word before and it is naff when an article starts off with something that you don’t understand… Don’t worry about it though, it happens to me all the time!!

Basically it is the study of the history of words. Where they came from and how they came about and, what it means. In essence we are looking at the origin of a word and how it changes over time.
For example, the word etymology itself comes from the Greek word etumología broken down into two parts. Etumon which translates to “true sense” and logia which means “the study of”.

The History of Glastonbury Festival

The History of Glastonbury Festival

Glastonbury Festival was started by founder and somerset dairy farmer Michael Eavis back in the 1970’s. Michael apparently had the idea to create a festival while watching a Led Zepplin gig at the open air festival ‘Bath Festival of Blues and Progressive Music 1970’.

Glastonbury Festival

The first festival that he put together was a two day event that started on September 19th 1970 which was the day after legend Jimi Hendrix died (very sad day for music lovers).  The first Glastonbury festival was called the ‘Pilton Festival’  which later changed its name to ‘Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts’.  The estimated attendance for the 1970 festival was around 1500 people which in today’s standard is not many at all!
