Written for the modern pregnant Black woman, Oh Sis, You’re Pregnant! is the essential what to expect when you're expecting guide to understanding pregnancy from a millennial Black mom’s point of view.

Interviews, stories, and advice for pregnant women. Written by Black Moms Blog founder, the book tackles hard topics in a way that truly resonate with modern Black moms. With stories from her experiences through pregnancy, labor, and motherhood, and lessons learned as a mother at twenty-two, Oh Sis, You’re Pregnant! focuses on the common knowledge Black pregnant mothers should consider when having their first baby. It also shares topics beneficial to pregnant Black women on their second, third, or fourth born.

Find answers to questions:

  • Do I financially plan for my birth?
  • Can I maintain my relationship and friendships during motherhood?
  • Will I self-advocate for my rights in a world that already views me as less than?

The Cannabinoid Cookbook

By

Your Endocannabinoid System is Your FriendTake Care of It!

Learn from Dr. Joseph Feuerstein, MD, and Chef Daniel Green about the 11 rich foods that can give your body health benefits, without using any CBD or hemp products.

The word “cannabinoid” can be jarring, but it doesn’t mean what you think it does. We have a whole system named after pot called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), composed of receptors and enzymes that help regulate a variety of our bodily functions. "Endocannabinoid" means cannabis-like substances that naturally occur inside us. The ECS is a chemical communication system that performs the vital function of achieving and maintaining homeostasis, or balance, within the body.  Homeostasis is your body's efforts to keep everything in the right zone. This includes our sleep cycle, mood, memory, appetite, pain sensations, and so much more. It tries to keep your internal environment stable and optimal no matter what is going on in the environment around you.

The perfect cookbook for skeptics. It is perfectly understandable to be wary about holistic foods and their healing properties. However, when used and prepared correctly these rich foods are full of natural healing remedies that can help you ease pain, sleep better, de-stress, and so much more. Jam-packed with healing ingredients, making easy and healthy dinner ideas has never been easier. Discover wonderful uses of turmeric, basil, rosemary, flax, oregano, cloves, cinnamon, cacao, and more.

The Cannabinoid Cookbook provides a ton of healthy recipes using healing herbs and spices that can kick-start your ECS and help you feel better each day! Learn more about:

  • Common herbs and spices that can create an endocannabinoid response
  • How to use these recipes to heal pain, inflammation, and other bodily issues
  • Easy and delicious recipes that heal you, inside and out
