Cheeba Beans 420 30% mega discount!

Hey guys! Firstly, happy 420! Do you know where term 420 originally came from?

420 is the month of April followed by the date in the US date format. 420 originates back to 1971 where high school kids arranged a mission to find an abandoned cannabis crop they were informed of, the meeting time was 420 which in turn was phrased as a little code word for the mission and overtime the code word started to get around began to be used to mean the consumption of cannabis products. The story is known as the Waldo story and High Times has been responsible for taking the story and suppressing all other stories about the origin of the term. April the 20th over the years has become a staple day and has been used as an international counterculture holiday where people gather to celebrate and consume cannabis.

Events happen all over the world at major parks where people come together in peace to consume and enjoy cannabis, the events usually don’t attract any bother and the authorities seem to accept and contain it.

Us at Cheeba Beans would like to offer you a little online based 420 promo where you can save a massive 30% on all orders over £25.00 which is the best deal we’ve offered so far.

What does 420 mean to you and how are you celebrating 420 for 2019?

Hemp & CBD Show 2019

Hey everyone!

On Friday the 1st of March the Cheeba Beans teamed up with Growers Choice from Holland to combine a stall for the first Hemp and CBD show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. The show was open to the public between the 2nd and 3rd of March. 

The Friday involved both the Cheeba Beans and Growers Choice crew putting everything up which was a fun yet action packed day.

Saturday was the opening of the show and this started with us giving out a Cheeba Beans goodie bag for the first half the day, this goodie bag was for everyone we interacted with. The second half of the day we implemented a spinning wheel and encouraged people to sign up to our closed Facebook group (Cheeba Beans), this is a group with the aim to build a Cheeba Beans community where everyone can discuss all things cannabis, every so often us at Cheeba Beans will be doing exclusive in-group free seed giveaways. We did our best to get people to join the group via Facebook, by signing up you got a free goodie bag + a spin on the wheel which offered a handful of goodies! Almost all our goodie bags went within the first day, we couldn’t believe the interaction which manifested at our stall so thank you everyone!

Please do request to join the Facebook group and we’ll let you in kindly:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/511841809339445/

At the show we was offering some exclusive strains from Mass Medical Strains. Mass Medical Strains are located in western Massachusetts where all their plants are grown and bred 100% organically with no additives, they believe in copying nature as much as possible where they use nothing but soil and water, just as nature intended!

You can see our Mass Medical Strain collection by following the below link:

The Saturday ended with Cheeba Beans been invited to the awards ceremony alongside the Growers Choice team. We was pleased to be part of the awards ceremony.  Growers Choice managed to pull off a 2nd for best seed bank at the ceremony and we managed to get get 3rd which was very happy to receive. 

A close-up of the trophy!

What made receiving the trophy that more special was the fact it was the first UK Hemp & CBD show at the Birmingham NEC!

The Sunday was more of a steady day due to us knowing what to expect, this doesn’t mean the day wasn’t as busy. We kept up by giving out the goodie bags to everyone who joined our Facebook group.

Alongside Mass Medical Strains, we planned to offer In-House Genetics however we didn’t receive them in time.

We do have them in stock on the web store now though, which you can see linked below:

We just want to thank the Hemp & CBD for having us and we’re really looking forward to the next one at the fall of 2019.

What’s CBD? Germination Station Breakdown

A cannabis plant has over 113 active cannabinoids and CBD is one of the contributing cannabinoids. CBD is the abbreviation for Cannabidiol. CBD is classed as a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. It’s apparent that CBD impacts our psyche which is often the case, in a beneficial way. CBD does not however impair mental or physical function for many consumers, even at high doses which gives CBD the ‘non-psychoactive‘ element. Due to the non-psychoactive element CBD offer, the cannabinoid will not get you ‘high’. 

Our bodies have a endocannabinoid system (ECS), the system is the name for a series of cell receptors that respond to certain kinds of agonists. They are two contributing cell receptors which make up the ECS system, CB1 and CB2; the CB stands for Cannabinoid Receptor. The keys for these receptors are called endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are our bodies natural THC. CB1 and CB2 receptors have the ability to influence moods, pain, appetite and memory functions. These receptors can be activated by natural endocannabinoids which our bodies produce or they can be activated through the consumption of plant cannabinoids such as cannabis.

CBD doesn’t stimulate CB1 and CB2, it does however activate other receptors such as vanilloid, adenosine and serotonin.

The activation of these receptors allows medical effects to become apparent as they have the ability to treat inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms and other disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.

CBD does not really bind with either of the two Cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), it does however activate certain non-cannabinboid receptors. Both the anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory impact of CBD is generally associated with the activation of the adenosine receptor. With the stimulation of adenosine, CBD promotes the release of dopamine and glutamate neurotransmitters. CBD is involved in the stimulation of 5-HT1A serotonin receptor, which is known to produce an anti-depressant effect. This receptor is known for its range of processes such as appetite, pain perception, nausea, anxiety and addiction mechanisms. CBD has been found to reduce the proliferation of cancerous cells by inhibition GPR55 signalling. CBD as cancer treatment activates PPARs which are also known as a peroxisome proliferator activated receptors, these are found on the surface of a cells nucleaus. 

Consuming CBD

They are a number of ways to consume CBD. The next section of this post will discuss several ways you can consume CBD.

Droplets is one way to consume CBD, this is a small drop of liquid normally in a dropper vial where you can consume the drop by dropping the liquid into your mouth where the CBD dissolves. 

Capsules/tablets are another way to consume CBD where you just consume the capsule or tablet the same way you would do with a normal pill. 

CBD can also be vaped as an e-liquid, this is great for consumers who are already used to smoking/vaping. 

They are many more ways to consume CBD, however the three mentioned appear to be the most popular, acceptable and easiest way to consume. 

Germination Station now have CBD products from Canabidol
