cannabis contains hundreds of molecules called cannabinoids - two of which being CBD and THC. CBD and THC are similar in their genetic makeup, but differ in their medicinal functions. cannabidiol (CBD) is legal in most of the US and has no psychoactive properties while tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is primarily sought out for ~the high~.
our products use hemp-derived CBD because hemp has all the properties of cannabis but less than .3% THC which means it can be grown legally where cannabis can't (yet).
THC has its own set of physiological and psychological benefits we'll let you research on your own ;) it’s dope!
CBD (cannabidiol if you’re fancy) is a legal, non addictive and non-psychoactive substance known for its widely applicable medicinal benefits on the mind and body. smart people did extensive research proving the positive effects of CBD on brain health, bone disease, inflammation, anxiety, stress, depression, pain, sleeping disorders, and on lowering risk of cancer, diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease.
specifically in relation to your skin, CBD has been attributed to helping with acne, inflammation, eczema, and other moderate skin conditions while also providing a barrier between you and the elements.
did your biology teacher tell you there’s an entire system in the human body named after cannabis? that’s right - the endocannabinoid system (present in all animals) is named after weed and was only discovered in the 90s.
the two major components of our inner weed system are endocannabinoids - which are cannabinoids much like CBD & THC - that occur naturally in our body, and CB receptors that bind with the cannabinoids. different cannabinoids send different messages to different receptors and tell our bodies to react in different ways.
CBD works by mimicking and assisting endocannabinoids in the human body; binding with CB2 receptors to help regulate our bodies to a state of homeostasis. when our bodies are in homeostasis, we’re less prone to disease, fatigue, SKIN PROBLEMS, and all kinds of other bad stuff.
we use a CBD isolate perfectly dosed and specifically formulated for topical use as well as a whole plant hemp extract which retains all the terpenes, cannabinoids, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and phytonutrients of the hemp plant while also improving absorption into the body.
if you’re wondering why these aren’t at the top of the ingredient list, it’s because the effects diminish and eventually plateau as you add more - it keeps it cheaper for both of us to use the optimal amount.
