CBD SKINCARE

CBD oil offers something for everyone thanks to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-aging properties. It can help treat any of these conditions: Acne, dry skin, wrinkles, redness, under eye bags, fine lines, and inflammation by interacting through our endocannabinoid system, a neurotransmitter network that helps the body and brain communicate with each other, helping to restore our skin to its optimal state.  CBD oil also contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which provide moisture and protection from sun damage by improving healthy cell production  — which also helps treat several chronic dry skin conditions like eczema or dermatitis.
 
The benefits of CBD oil are more than just skin deep. Studies have proven that CBD oil not only helps with skin conditions but also with stressed muscles and mood.

WHAT IS CBD OIL?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most abundant chemical substance found in the hemp plant. Both CBD and THC (Tetrahydrocannabidiol), the most abundant constituent of the cannabis plant, are similar in molecular structure which has led people to confuse them and in some cases believe they are the same. However, the differences between CBD and THC are great. Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive effects.  Our CBD oil is extracted from the whole hemp plant to obtain a full spectrum oil refined down to a 99%+ pure, all-natural CBD isolate.

HOW CBD WORKS

CBD binds to particular receptors called cannabinoid receptors in our cells. Some of these receptors are found in our nervous system while others are in almost every organ of the body — including our largest organ: the skin. CBD and cannabinoid receptors work together, communicating, reacting and interacting to different cells in our body. Together, these receptors are part of a larger system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Some researchers describe the ECS as one of the greatest neurotransmitter systems in the body lending a hand to every process including mood, memory, motor control, immune function, reproducton, pain perception, appetite, sleep and bone development. The primary purposes of the ECS are neuroprotection, stress recovery, immune balance and homeostatic regulation (restoring our bodies to its optimal state and creating balance). CBD oil interacts with this balancing system in therapeutic ways because its composition is similar to chemicals that our bodies naturally produce called endocannabinoids. Fundamentally, our ECS bridges the gap between our bodies and mind and while functioning optimally positively impacts your skin.
