A little update to our CBD post from a few weeks ago, and honestly just an interesting history lesson on the plant that we just had to share: CBD was used by Queen Victoria during the 19th century to alleviate menstrual cramps.

Having trouble sleeping? There's an adaptogen for that. Read on before reaching for that bottle of sleeping pills tonight.
It all starts with keeping our pineal gland in check. The pineal gland produces melatonin, which helps maintain circadian rhythm and regulate reproductive hormones. When our pineal gland is calcified, we’re out of balance with our basic biological functioning,
How exactly does calcification happen? It happens naturally to everyone, but is increased in those who eat a poor diet, particularly high in fluoride and phosphorus, which destabilize our mineral balance.
The key to better sleep is decalcifying and removing toxins such as lead, fluoride and heavy metals to purify your gland and balance the circadian rhythm to allow for better sleep and hormone balance along with clearer intuition and spiritual development.
Among our favorite additives is chlorella, a green algae native to Taiwan and Japan is a highly rich superfood containing phytonutrients, such as amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorus, biotin, magnesium and the B-complex vitamins. Its effects are removing metal toxins, increased oxygen levels and boosting immune functions for a reversal of pineal gland calcification.
Chlorella is found in many of our vegan dishes here at Planted, and can also be added upon request. Come and visit us at 333 Smith Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn to try some of them out!
You've probably heard about CBD, the wellness industry's latest obsession. But what it is and what it does remain a mystery to most. Here's our quick rundown on what CBD is and how it can help you.
For starters, the initials CBD are short for cannabidiol, a compound from the hemp plant that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned."
But if it's hemp, is it legal? A very good question, and the answer is yes! The reason is because CBD is extracted from the plant without THC, the other compound found in hemp that is a hallucinogen and classified in the U.S. as a drug.
So what are those medical benefits? Here's a nifty little chart:
How can you imbibe in CBD? Tinctures, gummies, oils, topicals like paste and massage cream, bath bombs, lotions, pills, drinks, food... you name it, someone has put CBD in it! And the list is growing everyday.
Here at Cafe Planted, we serve it up in our delicious vegan CBD lattes, which provides the best of both worlds: alertness from the caffeine without the jitters that usually come with it.
We also have a big selection of gummies, tinctures and oils, along with our very own brand of CBD, obviously also called Planted.
