What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid (chemical compound) of the hemp plant. Our products come from 100% federally legal industrial hemp production.
Many people confuse hemp with marijuana. Although the two plants share the same genus (Cannabis) they are used differently.
- Marijuana usually has high amounts of THC, the psychoactive part of the plant that people use both recreationally and medicinally.
- Hemp contains only trace amounts of THC and can be purified to contain no THC at all. The topical products we make will not give you any psychoactive effects because they contain non-detect levels of THC and are applied topically.
Hemp contains many beneficial cannabinoids, including CBD and has also been cultivated for biofuels, fiber and even food products.
Increasingly, the hemp plant is being studied and found to have positive benefits for pain relief, both chronic and acute, for such conditions as arthritis, chronic inflammation and soreness.* In addition, CBD is being studied as a powerful anti-inflammatory and may have healing and therapeutic effects on the skin.*
Many people have used CBD salves to treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The benefit of our products is not only the presence of a highly concentrated form of hemp CBD, but in the proprietary blend of calming essential oils and skin friendly ingredients we use. We infuse our base oils for our products with dried calendula and chamomile flowers for a minimum of three weeks, adding back into our products soothing herbs as well as terpenes.
How does CBD work?
Skin cells in the body have receptors that cannabidiol (CBD) can act on (the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors in the human body). This system works to regulate pain, immune function and sleep among other things. These receptors are found all over the body and can be utilized by apply CBD in a topical form to block pain, reduce inflammation and promote a feeling of calmness and well being.*
CBD can reduce the feeling of pain by directing the nerves to reduce their firing. This may result in a feeling of relief of pain.* Because CBD offers anti-inflammatory effects, it may also help with skin inflammation, irritations, itching, minor abrasions and other skin conditions.*
CBD is soluble in fats and oil based products, which means they can be used very effectively in salves and balms, which is why we use all natural oils to deliver the hemp oil to your skin.
When applied topically, the CBDs penetrate the outer layer of the skin. When included in a massage, CBD’s interaction with your endocannabinoid system can induce a number of beneficial effects.*
You can increase the effect and rapidity of the relief by applying a heating pad to the area, taking a hot shower or bath or soaking the area to be treated in warm water prior to applying the topical.
