It’s funny how the truth finally catches up to people. It takes time, but no matter how the politicians, pharmaceutical companies and spiritual charlatans try to obfuscate our own power to heal, the truth still rises, sometimes angrily – like massive waves beating against a rock cliff.
This truth is so profound that if you Google search terms for health trends you get an interesting set of artificially intelligent algorithms as well as some good, old- fashioned popularity-contest results.
Google and Facebook still haven’t found a way to control our minds completely, so our preferences are evidenced, though mitigated, in our search choices.
Is Google Limiting Your Knowledge of Conscious Medicine or Expanding It?
Here’s a fun experiment you can try:
Type in “holistic medicine trends” into your Google browser. You may get slightly different results since the search engine has been cataloguing your every Internet move, but you might observe something like this:
In the year 2018, things like acupuncture, reiki, mindfulness, roseroot and yoga can be listed as a verifiable trends, without the snickering of a mainstream population.
When I first started yoga over fifteen years ago, people accused me of being in a cult, and now yoga studios are like Starbucks – which arguably is like its own cult.
My point is that yoga has been mainstreamed. You are “allowed” to turn to it to help you deal with depression or inflammation or heart disease and obesity.
With Canada about to legalize weed, the US FDA is still forestalling a green light on the full use of CBD oils, even those which contain NO THC – the part of the marijuana plant that can cause hallucinations and make you high. 
The FDA’s Fight Against CBD use is Waning
It took eons for them to allow CBD use, neglecting to mention its incredible abilities to heal, while simultaneously promoting a patentable pharmaceutical drug that must be regulated – by them of course, lest we all join a cult again and be lead off a cliff.
While we must include a statement here that we give no medical advice at North Mountain Botanicals, and CBD oil can offer no cure for any disease, the evidence is quite astounding that this is something every thinking person should chew on.
Cannabidiol, one of the main compounds in CBD, for example, has mostly been measured by the establishment to see if it interacts with any of their other FDA approved drugs. Because of course, if you seek an alternative health medicine, it should surely work within the medical system that we have been sold – hook, line and sinker. 
And this is just one of 113 different active plant compounds in the hemp plant, a close cousin to marijuana – that we know of.  There are likely synergies between these compounds which scientists still can’t crack, aiding their ability to do the following:
- Improve mood
- Decrease chronic inflammation
- Decrease physical pain
- Help patients with PTSD
- Fight cancer
- Reduce seizures 
- Reduce the risk of heart disease
- Treat sleep issues
- Alleviate anxiety 
For those who are new to the “trend” of healing yourself with plant compounds, energy medicine, and other oddities like yoga or mindfulness, CBD oil can come from hemp plants or marijuana plants. Marijuana is most widely recognized with three scientific names: Cannabis indica, Cannabis runderalis, and Cannabis sativa.

NMB CBD oil is made from hemp, a non-hallucinogenic plant species which comes from the Cannabis sativa variety.
Though CBD oil can also be derived from marijuana, by the time the compound – cannabidiol – is extracted, it contains no hallucinogenic properties.
CBD oil is also:
NMB CBD oil may contain energetic properties, when purchased from North Mountain Botanicals, given that Nikki herself infuses each batch with Reiki, which even science is now admitting “may have therapeutic properties for reducing pain, and aiding other health conditions.” 
You can read testimonials attesting to North Mountain Botanical’s ability to aid people’s health issues to find out how a pure, organic, lovingly made batch of CBD can be life-changing, but that would make you a trend-setter, not a follower.
You see, the ability to use mindfulness or plant-based medicine instead of toxic alternatives to heal ourselves is part of our inherent spiritual wealth. It isn’t a passing trend. It is the truth of who we are rising against the seemingly solid industries that will crumble as we all regain our sovereignty and experience our mental, physical and spiritual health as it was meant to be – full of light, and wholeness.

I believe it is because enough people have tried allopathic medicine and it has failed. They are turning to other options, if only out of curiosity, to alleviate their symptoms. This is why we show up in Google’s trends now, though these healing modalities are ancient and provable.
Welcome to the truth of healing. It starts with you.
