When to Take Melatonin to Avoid Jet Lag

Our brains often struggle when adapting to significant time changes, and jet lag can make enjoying a vacation challenging. However, through the use of melatonin, you could hack your circadian rhythm and get your body quickly synced up to your new timezone, letting you maximize your holiday and enjoy your time away. Why Do We Get Jet Lag? Each of us has a circadian rhythm that responds to light. As the sun goes down and darkness falls, our brains release melatonin, which helps us relax and go to sleep; as the sun comes up, this hormone reduces so that we can feel alert and awake in the morning. Our eyes’ retinas detect light signals that communicate with a part of the brain called the suprachiasmatic nucleus, telling us when to sleep, and when to wake up. We often find it easier to function when we’re entrenched in routine because our…

The weather conditions here are rough, if not extreme; even the summers have an average temperature of being under 10°C (50°F). But just because there isn’t much scenery to look forward to, there is a vastness in the wildlife observation in the Arctic, and the remarkableness of its animals are a sight to see. 1.   Polar Bears On the number one spot is…

The Difference Between CBD Oil and Hemp Oil

Humanity has been interested in hemp and its by-products for centuries. Henry Ford is believed to have been a proponent of the growth of this crop in the 1930s but was thwarted in his efforts by the implementation of the Marijuana Act legislated in 1937. During World War II, interest was rekindled by the Hemp for Victory campaign, but the revival was short-lived. In 1970, President Nixon included hemp as a Schedule 1 drug in the Controlled Substances Act. This paved the way, over the next few decades, for new legislation to be put in place, allowing limited cultivation in approved areas. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP AND MARIJUANA? Hemp and marijuana both hail from the Cannabaceae family of vegetation. Both plants belong to the same species and there are no classification differences between the two. It is said that science does not distinguish between the pair of variants,…
