Thematically Speaking

Each month, we explore a specific health and wellness subject. This month’s theme: Mushrooms. From reviled fungus to versatile superfood, these fruiting bodies are now popping up in wellness products around the world – including ours.

This month, we’re speaking to the glory of mushrooms, speaking with specialists as well as our very own Glad Scientist, Dr. Refael Aharon, about their extraordinary ability to treat body, mind and spirit. And we’ll also reveal how the potent varieties — shiitake, chaga and maitake — we use for our products can aid you in your daily life.

Women Grow’s 2nd Annual Leadership Summit: Beyonces Everywhere

Women Grow’s 2nd Annual Leadership Summit: Beyonces Everywhere

In the spring of 2016, I came across an article written by a woman about her experience at something called the “1st Annual Women Grow Leadership Summit”. I had not heard of the Women Grow organization before and knew nothing about their summit, but by the time I finished the article I knew I had to find out more. And I knew I had to be in attendance at next year’s event.

From Soil to Oil

From Soil to Oil

It’s Medicine Box Monday and this week we’d like to share our soil to oil philosophy. But first, we need to share an article from Moonshine Ink about the legalization process. We were able to contribute some thoughts and photos to the article and we love how it turned out.
