NOTE: THIS EPISODE DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY MEDICAL ADVICE AND HAS NOT BEEN PROVEN TO CARRY ANY MEDICAL BENEFIT. THIS EPISODE IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY AND IS NOT INTENDED TO SUBSTITUTE MEDICAL ADVICE.
♡ Who is Nadya Pecherskaya?
She is originally from Russia and moved to Canada when she was 16 years old. While growing up she had a lot of influence from the modeling industry with a push towards these ideals of having the "perfect" body. That is what initially got her into holistic health.
♡ Why CBD?
The idea behind CBD oil was to remove the stigma around CBD. During her own tough times going through a breakup she finally agreed to try CBD oil. She noticed that it calmed her down and made her feel like her normal self. Because of this, she decided to look into the benefits of CBD and do more research about it.
♡ The beginning of ICARIA
In the early days of product development she saw that many brands were made by men and not by women. The thought process behind ICARIA was to create a woman focused product and brand. She wanted to make women more comfortable when taking CBD.
Two to three ingredients are in the ICARIA products. These include:
Hemp oil (for flavor)
♡ How should you take your CBD?
So it according to Nadya it doesn't matter where you start in terms of the milligram amounts. Basically, every person is different so it is the amount you want to take and the amount that benefits you rather than the exact dosage. Nadya recommends you try a little and see what works best for you.
Nadya's preference: put it under your tongue as it gets absorbed quicker than swallowing it.
♡ What do you feel like on CBD?
There is no particular feeling with CBD because it's not a drug. Nadya says that you should imagine how you feel on a good day or on a day without stress. The purpose is to take any negative feelings away and make you feel like your true self.
♡ CBD vs THC
Both products come from the same plant but they are opposites. For example, THC has psychoactive and addictive properties whereas, CBD works as an antipsychotic without addictive properties. CBD increases cognitive function, helps with memory, boosts focus and increases your attention span which is different from THC.
Note: they can work in synergy but when you separate them they are different entities.
For example, CBD and THC are best together for their anti-inflammatory properties.
♡ Future of THC and CBD
There is a lot of new research coming out right now which may prove to be crucial in the way we view CBD and THC in the future. For example, THC is now being studied for the treatment of PTSD.
♡ Nadya's thoughts on edibles
Nadya is a believer in taking supplements as supplements and she is not a fan of edibles because you don't know how much you are taking and how it will affect you. It is less controlled via edibles so that is something to be aware of.
♡ Nadya's Wellness Routine
Her most important daily activity revolves around going on long walks which helps with your mental health, sleep, mood and really everything combined. Other equally important activities include, exercising, eating healthy as well as, wholesome meals, going to bed on time and waking up on time.
She typically starts her week of every Monday with some CBD in the am to set her up for the week. Additionally, if she can't sleep she will take CBD for a refreshed sleep and she also uses it to help with her TMJ.
♡ Secret Tip
Identify emotions and express them in a healthy, productive way
Nadya notes that learning how to feel and express emotions has been life changing. It is important that you don't take out your frustrations on others but explain why you feel the way you feel and remove yourself from situations when you are not having a good day. Don't foget to be in tune with yourself!
