THCV: The Cannabis Strain That Helps You Get Sh!t Done!

Spring cleaning is all about getting those long overdue things done and settings things up for a spectacular Summer. If you need a little help, try Natural Natural’s proprietary THCV strain, “Get Sh!t Done,” which will help you do just that. THCV is a rare cannabinoid that has been clinically proven to boost energy and increase motivation without triggering the munchies. According to the IRB-backed study conducted by People’s Science, participants who used the “Get Sh!t Done” strain said that they felt 20% more energized, meaning they felt more active, motivated and reported better exercise performance. Participants felt 40% more joy which was defined by enjoying their daily activities more and were in an overall better mood. Natural Natural’s proprietary and THCV strain is easily enjoyed in the form of Kanha LOVE gummies in delicious raspberry rose flavor. These are definitely potent and more-ish so be sure to keep them away from the kids or the poets. One gummy or maybe two will put you in the mood for love and other accomplishments.


Sensodyne Clinical White toothpaste

Trusted toothpaste brand Sensodyne has come out with its most advanced whitening technology yet. Clinical White is scientifically proven to whiten teeth by two shades and provide 24/7 sensitivity protection (with 2x daily brushing) in an enamel safe formula. The triple-action formula whitens, polishes, and protects against future stains, all while being gentle on sensitive teeth, which can be a real issue as we age. Clinical White offers effective whitening without peroxide, and the product comes in fully recyclable materials, so you can feel good about what’s in your bathroom vanity. Clinical White is available in two flavors, Stain Protector (Mint) and Enamel Strengthening (Extra Fresh) for a recommended retail price of $8.99. Now that’s a very inexpensive way to greet Spring with a radiant smile.


Revivv by WeThrivv

Whatever gender you are, you may have noticed that one of the side effects of aging is a loss or thinning of hair. Hair loss is also a product of stress, harsh chemicals, and toxins in the body through drinking or drug use. Revivv is a drug-free topical serum designed by physicians and scientists for thicker, fuller, and healthier-looking hair. It is recommended by dermatologists, stylists, and industry experts. We tried the Revive For Her and applied it around thinning hair above the temples. (Men and trans men note: there is also a product for you!) The first thing we noticed was the convenient roller application for effective delivery onto the scalp (no waste, no mess and no need to get the serum on your fingers as the roller does the massage for you.

The serum has a slight tingling/cooling effect but disappears into the scalp and works for day or night use. This is a dermatologist-recommended, patent-pending topical formula that promotes thicker, healthier, and fuller looking hair. It includes a 3-month supply of the serum and has been optimized with ingredients specifically for women. The serum can be used as a standalone product or in combination with other products. Recently, actor and environmentalist Matthew Modine joined WeThrivv as a brand ambassador for WeThrivv brands, including Revivv and Maskād, natural and vegan hair and skin products created using data-driven science. “WeThrivv is committed to creating products that are non-toxic, derived from nature and that are proven to work. That’s why I am so pleased to join them and help them deliver their core message,” said Modine.
