Peace of Mind in Crazy Times
I want to start this post by first clarifying that I'm not writing this from a place of fear. Anyone that knows my family, knows that we don't own televisions, and generally dont believe the hype....at all.
In last night's post on insomnia, I briefly touched on Covid19, and statistics that Americans are currently facing. Read back if you'd like, but to quickly summarize, the odds of this disease terminally infecting you are at this point in time astronomical. There is still an overwhelming chance that this will go as quickly as it came once warm weather is here to stay, and as earth gets closer to the sun and we get further into spring.
With that being said, this is still something that we need to obviously pay attention to as it is an ever changing situation. Regardless of your stance on "covid19" the CDC (www.cdc.gov) estimates that so far this season there have been at least 34 million flu illnesses, 350,000 hospitalizations and 20,000 deaths from flu. Let that digest for a moment.
Ever since flu season began we have gotten numerous requests, especially from people who are educated on the antibacterial properties of CBD and CBG, about creating a clean and effective hand sanitizer to combat seasonal illness. Hellomd.com states that research shows CBG to be a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent that can even be effective against MRSA, an antibiotic-resistant form of staphylococcus. We have been working on a product, but amidst our expansion we just hadn't put the time into it. Situations like this arise quite often, in every corner of the earth. After spending the majority of the last 5 years in foreign countries, I've concluded that whether we hear about the hype or not is up to our essentially state/corporate run media.
With that being said, I was out in town earlier this week grocery shopping. At one point I stopped, looked around, and realized... people are scared. They cant find sanitary products like hand sanitizers, cleanliness wipes, paper towels, and everyday products that we take for granted. The water on the shelves is thin in between restocking. You cant find rubbing alcohol anywhere either. Even on Amazon.com, America's go-to when in need, products are limited to long waiting and processing times and soaring prices. I called my wife Chelsie in frustration, and she simply said "Chris its time to get on this, people need piece of mind regardless of the physical threat".
I'm very proud to say that today, after nearly a week straight in the lab, we will release a truly one of a kind product. This new product is equipped with nothing but bacterial killing compounds. It was created purely out of demand, and our companies continued desire to provide cleaner, healthier more viable daily use products that will serve our customers needs both mentally and physically.
The CDC reccomends at least 60% alcohol base in hand sanitizers to kill viruses. *Hand Sanitizer Plus by Active7 has a potent, but gentle 75% alcohol content and is infused with a combination of skin nourishing ingredients like organic aloe vera, THC FREE CBD/CBG, and organic witch hazel. We paired that with bacteria busting compounds like organic alcohol, lemon oil, and tea tree oil. To top it off, we bottled it in a strong and sleek glass roll on that's just perfect for your pocket on the go! Regardless of the time of year, what illnesses are going around, and where you are, you can now enjoy the benefits of a truly bacteria busting product. It even smells good!
We are retailing it at only $9.99 before tax and handling, or you can buy a pack of 2 for $17.99. It is now available on our website and you can buy it here active7wellness.com/topicals-skincare
It will also be available in stores all over North Carolina/Virginia by the end of this week. We have sourced what we think is enough raw material to keep stock up, and if things do progress, we will work overtime to ensure that processing times are not compromised with not just this, but all of our products. If requested via email or noted at checkout, we will go as far to deliver your product personally in and around Pitt County to circumvent mailing times and get you what you need quickly. We will also not limit the number of items to purchase, which is quickly becoming a trend.
I'd like to just finish by saying that In times of darkness, there is always light to be found. Hopefully, even amidst these extremely divisive times, if nothing else this crisis will make us put our differences aside and unite as humans, and as a collective.
