I Slang Sea Moss (Infused with CBG)
Plants on plants on plants. From earth to sea, plants have been healing humans and animals since the beginning of time. Many are unaware of sea moss but due to recent popularity, sea moss has been raved about on social media for months now.
Sea Moss is scientifically known as Chondrus crispus, and is a type of seaweed. It grows in waters along the rocky Atlantic coasts, primarily between North America and Europe. Its most popular form is in gel, but it is also seen in capsules, powder, and the dehydrated moss itself.
Please tell us about I Slang Sea Moss, the birth, the name, the owners.
I Slang Sea Moss is a land and sea herb medicine company by Enlightened Opportunities LLC. It came after the realization of how useful sea moss could be. As a plant-based person I was no stranger to sea moss for its thickening properties, egg free dishes, or as an ice cream alternative. 20 plus years later in 2019, I realized this same sea plant is actually an herb with amazing benefits. I started taking 2 tablespoons or more and within days felt a change in my energy, appetite and hair. I had a major increase in my energy and was getting better sleep so that when I wake I am well rested. I noticed I wasn’t snacking as much as I would without purpose. My hair also started growing thicker. These were just the beginning results. More and more amazing things started happening, and as I started to tell anyone I could about sea moss, I decided to add it to my art and wellness business, Enlightened Opportunities LLC.
The name I Slang Sea Moss came from a hashtag I used for sales online before I had a website, and kept it. It represents a part of Enlightened Opportunities that is owned by Anthony (my life partner) and I (Vee Brooks).
Sea Moss has been getting a lot of buzz, can you explain what it is, where it’s found, the differences between sea moss in the U.S and internationally?
