"Are you baking to cope with anxiety? You’re not alone. Here’s how to incorporate CBD into your pandemic-inspired creations.
2020 has been particularly baked. Instagram feeds have been overloaded with photos of breads, cookies, pies and other comfort foods—even more than usual—in our attempts to manage Covid-related stress and stay occupied while trying out a new recipe. Let’s call it what it is—anxiety baking."
Redevelopment Works - The Gibson Family Farm - Part 3
by Selina Pedi of The Progress News
Betsy Gibson loves to tell the story of how she, a vegetarian from Pittsburgh, fell in love with Joe Gibson, a rural pig farmer. We laugh as we imagine the “Green Acres” scenario, but I’ve always noticed something a little deeper, too: how two people who sometimes seem to have very different views and preferences have, in fact, very similar values and life goals. Joe and Betsy both care deeply about the well-being of others and their impact on the world around them, though they have different ways of expressing it."
CBD seems to be everywhere these days. I’ve never used it until recently, when I tried a new salve from Penn’s Choice.
I love sharing about family-owned businesses. So I was excited when Penn’s Choice reached out and I learned more about them. The family that owns this company — the Gibsons — have been farming since 1804 through 8 generations, with a 142-acre farm in Western Pennsylvania. When it became legal to grow industrial hemp in PA, they knew that was the future of their farm and their business, and Penn’s Choice was born!
"Once again, the holidays are almost upon us. It’s always joyous watching the people we love open the gifts we’ve purchased, smiling from ear to ear—excited. It can get hard however to gift someone something every single year, especially those who at the moment, it may feel they need nothing at all. But that’s why we’re here, to provide you a list of great items you don’t THINK you need, but in reality, you do! Gifting should be all about surprising our loved ones with something unique and fascinating."
“Locally sown, grown, and owned.” The emphasis on keeping things local ran throughout my conversations with the Gibson family as I continued to speak with them about their latest venture, hemp farming, and their line of medicinal hemp products, Penn’s Choice. Joe Gibson stressed the need to care for his family, friends, and neighbors. “We just wanted to do something that helped people, and wow, it feels so good to know that we are helping…"
"Always take care of your mind body and soul first. Use products that make you feel good about yourself without compromising your integrity... What can help with feeling achy and tired is using Penn’s Choice. I like them, because they are a wonderful family of hemp farmers who create very valuable CBD goods to take the edge off of all those annoying pain issues. Penn’s Choice is hemp grown in Pennsylvania with farmers that offer the full spectrum and top shelf CBD products."
"Ah, man, he would be so happy. I tell you what, he'd be out there, right now, in the field, working on a new discer or something, trying to find ways to make it even better." I was talking to Joe Gibson, a sixth-generation local farmer, about how his dad might feel about the most recent venture on the Gibson farm - hemp. The life of a farmer isn't an easy one, and he recalled how first it was his grandfather, his father, and himself as a boy, working the fields and caring for the livestock together.
