By now, you've probably heard of CBD, but what is it exactly? We're here to answer that and how adding it to your routine will make your skin happy (but not high!)
CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a non-psychoactive compound derived from the buds of cannabis. Cannabis is the plant family that hemp and marijuana come from (think of them as cousins). CBD from hemp contains less than .3% of THC (the part of the plant that gets you high). For reference, marijuana typically has has between 18-25% THC.
CBD has recently been approved by the FDA for seizures in children, which is so exciting! It is also believed to promote relaxation when taken internally. But did you know that CBD has amazing topical benefits, too?
Here are just a few benefits of CBD when used topically:
- Targeted Pain Relief
- Joint and Muscle Comfort
- Headache relief
- Promotes healing to dry + irritated skin
- Locks in moisture
- High in antioxidants, which fight free radicals
Is it Legal?
Yes! In 2018 the Farm Bill was passed, legalizing hemp. This includes CBD derived from hemp, which is the form of CBD that we use in our products.
