CBD and Green Beauty
The world of beauty has been lighting it up lately as Hemp steadily becomes a primary ingredient for skin and beauty products.
Hemp infused products can take one’s skin-care routine to a higher level through its powerful anti-inflammatory and stress relieving properties. It is a universal ingredient as it can be used to enhance most any product’s effectiveness.
Hemp contains cannabinoids, primarily CBD, which all contain their own set of healing properties. These properties include anti-inflammation, antioxidant, antimicrobial and even antiviral. It is well known that most skin issues such as acne, rosacea, scarring, etc. all have one thing in common: inflammation. CBD can help tackle the inflammation symptoms, while nourishing your skin with antioxidants and protect it from free radicals, like UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants. This all can result in healthy, vibrant and youthful skin!
CBD also targets pain which can come with many skin issues, such as cystic acne. Feeling the pain of cystic acne or other skin issues can remind one that the condition is there and can cause self-consciousness. How does it work? Science shows us that CBD binds to a special set of receptors in the skin known as TRPV-1 receptors, where it can help alleviate feelings of heat, itch, and pain. This explains why it has a soothing effect on the skin, making it a good choice for people with dry skin, eczema and other skin related issues.
The best thing about plants is that they all work together like a team, especially when it comes to healing and beauty care!
Some people question, why does full spectrum CBD work better than CBD isolate?
Full spectrum means all cannabinoids included (as well as >.3% THC). As stated above, all cannabinoids come with their own set of properties, and synergistically work together as one working team to provide maximum results. CBD just by itself just means there is only a single set of healing effects involved. This is comparable to one person trying to accomplish a task vs a whole community trying to accomplish the same task. Which would be more efficient? This synergistic force is known as the entourage effect.
It’s not just cannabis that works synergistically, but most herbs and plants do, even through combining multiple herbs in one product. Take Make and Mary’s face and body serum as an example, not only does it contain full spectrum CBD, but it also includes the following:
