The hemp-derived cannabinoid HHC creates euphoric effects similar to THC – relaxation, mood lift, sensory enhancement – by binding with CB1 receptors in the brain.

Running burns lots of calories, builds muscle, and elevates your metabolism, making it a highly effective exercise for losing weight. Aim for 25-40 miles of running per week at a moderate pace, along with a calorie-controlled diet, to create the calorie deficit needed for pounds to drop at a rate of about 1-2 lbs per week. Run frequently, include faster-paced interval and tempo workouts, and complement running with cross-training like strength training. Running plus diet is a proven combination for losing weight sustainably.

The five kleshas—avidya, asmita, raga, dvesha, abhinivesha—are afflictions that create suffering by limiting awareness. Yoga provides tools like meditation to dismantle negative thought patterns and transcend these obstacles.

However, the kleshas are not to be suppressed but met with understanding and patience. Increased consciousness allows us to act from wisdom, progress spiritually, and inspire others.
