How do Tattoos Heal?

Did you know that tattoos have a healing process?  Most people don’t know until they are getting their tattoo that there is aftercare and healing for several weeks afterward.

When you get a tattoo, you are injuring your skin. It is essentially an open wound and needs to be treated with care to prevent infection.

Immediately after your session however, your skin is already healing itself.  It may be raised, inflamed, bleeding and sting like a bad sunburn when you leave the shop. It is important that you keep it clean and your skin moisturized.

The next stage in the healing process is peeling.  The top layer of skin will peel like a bad sunburn for up to a few weeks.  Sometimes it will even scab.

The average time a tattoo takes to heal is four weeks. The colors may be dull after peeling until the underlying layers of skin heal themselves.

We have found that our customers experience a faster healing time and much less scabbing and inflammation when using our tattoo healing cream, and followed up with our tattoo maintenance cream the colors are as vibrant as when it was first done.

How CBD works in our Body

In today’s blog, we are going to learn some biological science!  Our bodies all have an endocannabinoid system, which is what CBD reacts with when it is ingested. But what does this system do and how exactly does it work? The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) keeps internal bodily functions stable and controls how we think, feel and react. Once ingested,…

Myth Busting- What CBD is NOT

CBD and hemp plants have been around and been utilized for centuries.  Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths and misconceptions due to legislation in our country. 

Here are a few truths about CBD:

  • CBD comes from the Sativa Strain of the hemp plant and contains less than 0.3% of THC.
  • This is a completely different strain than the Indica Strain which produces marijuana.
  • CBD oil cannot get you high.  Because it contains such trace amounts of THC, it is impossible to have any mind altering effects on the body from ingesting or using topically.  
  • CBD is has a multitude of documented health benefits for the mind and body.

Why Mountain Mama?

We have wrapped up two of Montana’s biggest trade shows this month and are so thankful for all our past and new customers that we got to interact with at the shows!

It was very evident that CBD Oil is becoming more well known and popular and many multi level marketing companies are popping up.  That was a question we answered many times these past few weekends- “Which direct sales company are you with?” 

The answer is… None.  Mountain Mama was started in Columbus, MT and is a home grown small business.  This makes us different because we are not associated with any other companies and our products are the highest grade CBD Oil available on the market.  We have developed our own recipes using 100% Pure Organic products infused with essential oils that are light weight and easy on the nose.

Our CBD products use the Full Spectrum CBD Gold formula provided by CV Sciences. It is the only extract on the market to be given the GRAS (generally accepted as safe) certification by the FDA.

On top of all that, THE Mountain Mama is available to answer all your questions and take custom orders.  We care about your quality of life and your health and will not compromise our quality of product or customer service as we grow.  We are so thankful that you are on this journey with us and to be able to provide a product that is bringing so much healing to our customers.

As always, you can reach THE Mountain Mama with custom orders or questions here: www.mountainmamamontana.com/contact

The Benefits of CBD Oil for Pets

CBD oil has many natural healing benefits for humans, but did you know that those same benefits apply to your fur babies as well? Here are some of the benefits of CBD oil for your pets:

  1. Reduce anxiety.  Does your pet have separation or public anxiety?  CBD will help sooth and calm your pet in those situations.
  • Calm panic or PTSD disorders.  Just like humans, pets can also suffer from panic attacks and PTSD.  Regular use of CBD can help be an effective treatment for those scenarios.
  • CBD oil has been proven to have cancer fighting effects, including anti-tumor properties. Regular use of CBD oil can increase efficiency of traditional cancer treatments.
  • CBD has been proven to reduce the frequency of seizures and epilepsy episodes.  If your pet suffers from either of these, an all natural solution might be worth a try!
  • CBD reduces pain and muscle soreness.  Have a working or high performance animal?  CBD is an all natural pain reducer and can help them recover faster and perform better.

The Benefits of Sublingual (Internal) CBD Use

CBD oil has a myriad of health benefits when taken topically or sublingually. There are a few different ways to ingest CBD oil other than applying it topically.

The first way is sublingual use. Sublingual means under the tongue. This results in the oil going straight into the blood stream to react instantly with our body’s endocannabinoid system.
The next way is to ingest the oil via a tincture or food product. Tinctures can be taken sublingually as well as swallowed for a faster effect. Ingesting the oil is safe but it will take longer to feel the effects as it must first travel to the digestive system and metabolize in the liver.
Some of the benefits of ingesting CBD oil are:
*Reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety
*Balance mood swings and overall mental wellness
*CBD oil contains anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, making it wonderful for pain management
*CBD oil also rejuvenates skin cells and can be taken internally and externally for skin health and wellness
Mountain Mama carries several tinctures as well as CBD honey to be ingested. You can order them here:

The Benefits of Topical CBD Use

Mountain Mama provides an array of topical products containing
CBD oil to relieve pain and provide relief from common conditions such as arthritis
and joint pain, muscle pain and inflammation, and treat skin conditions such as
eczema and reducing acne.

Why does it work so well? 
What makes CBD oil different from other skin care products? 

CBD oil is a powerful antioxidant, protecting the skin from
free radicals that cause aging such as pollution, UV rays and smoke that cause
aging.  It also contains several
vitamins, minerals, proteins and fatty acids to promote healthy skin.  If that isn’t enough, it also reacts directly
with our body’s endocannabinoid system. (Read more about that here: https://mountainmamamontana.com/2018/12/09/your-body-is-made-for-cannabis/). 

Applying CBD oil products topically allows it to instantly
be absorbed by our biggest organ, our skin, and react with our endocannabinoid
system, giving instant pain-relieving results and skin health benefits.
