17 Apr This is Your Skin on CBD
Hemp is known to be a multipurpose talent. It provides us with hemp seed oil, one of the world’s richest sources of essential fatty acids and other nutrients. It also contains vitamin E and chlorophyll, which are potent antioxidants. Hemp seed oil has a major protein component. It is also the base of CBD isolate.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is similar to many other essential oils, where the oil is distilled from a natural plant source. In the case of CBD oil, quality grade hemp plants, (or medical marijuana plants that have high-CBD/low-THC levels), are utilized. What this distinction in plant usage indicates is that the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) molecules that causes the “high” effects are not present to affect the user. This makes CBD use safe and easy for all, any age, any life-stage. Through the use of refined CBD, everyone can benefit from the health incentives surrounding cannabis use, without the concern of being “under the influence.”
How does it Work?
CBD, one of the most abundant compounds within the cannabis plant, has done wonders in medicine and is continuously studied for it’s alleviating effects and properties. CBD has been found to help those suffering from a vast spectrum of ailments — ranging from skin disorders like psoriasis and eczema, to neurological disorders like migraines and seizures, to physical body discomfort.
We’ve decided to use it in our Sunny Daze Sun Cream. CBD as a form of sun protection is easily absorbed by the skin. All of the beneficial ingredients from the hemp plant make it a protective, moisturizing and rejuvenating skin care product. Because the plant is capable of developing its own UVR protection (just like other plants do), its extracts form a natural protection from the sun. Hemp seed oil helps deflect some of the UV rays without affecting the very important absorption of vitamin D, which most synthetic chemical sun protection products do. This is important, because vitamin D plays a vital role in the human body.
Is it Safe?
There has even been speculation as to whether or not to include CBD as a natural supplement on grocery shelves. The WHO (World Health Organization) has even verified that there aren’t any negative consequences from CBD usage, nor is there an overdose capacity. CBD has been continuously examined for its safety. Applications of CBD in daily use for relief and as a means of medicine continues to grow and thrive — have you thought about how to incorporate CBD into your life and experience the wellness?
