CBD is revolutionizing the skincare world with becoming a super antioxidant that tackles some of the most challenging skincare concerns! CBD is a wonder ingredient as it also contains Vitamin D and is the only botanical plant that does. CBD contains omega-3 & omega 6 and its antioxidant property is more powerful than vitamin C, E, A or omega 3 fatty acids. CBD is also becoming one of those ingredients that is widely used so it should have a "Buyers Beware" sticker as not all CBD is created equal. We'll get into that a bit later, but for now lets dive into to what CBD is!
WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound derived from HEMP, which is a strain from the Cannabis Sativa family. It produces NO psychoactive effects in the body.
CBD is an incredibly healing antioxidant (stronger than Vitamin C & E) and is responsible for providing relief and healing. It is great for skin conditions and aging in the skin.
The cannabis Sativa family have 2 different species, the 2 main species are HEMP (CBD) and Marijuana (THC). Both plants contain phyocannabinoids that provide many benefits for the body. Its important to know that HEMP plants are grown specifically for CBD based products and not grown for drug use.
