Cannabidiol {CBD} Therapy + Skincare

Health + Wellness
Pain Therapy + Relief

WHY CBD TOPICALS?
Cannabinoid receptors are located all throughout the skin. When applying a topical (lotion, butter, oil, balm, salt), Cannabidiol {CBD} has the capability of interacting with those receptors to encourage homeostasis and healing. Studies show that CBD can help treat an array of conditions related to the skin.

Topicals are applied right to trouble areas so that the CBD oil can work directly where it’s needed most. {Echo 2018}

Pain Relief
CBD Infused topicals are becoming the answer for people seeking relief from pain or soreness without the psychoactive effects of cannabis. Whether suffering from achy joints during a workout or sore muscles in general, the right cannabinoid-infused products can provide pain-free comfort.

Skin Therapy
CBD itself is a powerful antioxidant, meaning it protects the skin from free radicals like UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants. Free radicals lead to wrinkles and fine lines, but antioxidants protect our skin from this damage and help fight the effects of aging.

Questions?

Where Does CBD Come From?

CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis, often known as hemp. Chemically, CBD is one of 85 chemical substances known as cannabinoids, which are all found in the cannabis plant. CBD is the second most abundant compound in hemp, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts.

However, here is where the confusion starts.

Unfortunately, the most abundant constituent of cannabis is the cannabinoid known as THC, an intoxicating and illegal substance that is responsible for causing marijuana users to get “high.”

While CBD is completely separated and isolated from THC and CBD cannot get you “high,” there is still a lot of stigma as many people tend to mistake CBD for THC. These fears, though unfounded, are understandable to an extent, especially since the terminology surrounding CBD can be very confusing.

Nonetheless, it is impossible to get “high” by smoking or ingesting CBD-high hemp (that has only traces of THC), as it is also impossible to get high by consuming CBD oil products (that contain virtually no THC).

CBD is extracted in oil form and is often found mixed in hemp oil extracts in varying concentrations.

Is Cannabidiol Legal?

Yes, CBD is legal worldwide (a controlled substance in Canada alone). As we’ve seen above, there is a lot of misinformation surrounding CBD, partially because its chemical properties are poorly understood and partially because of its close resemblance to THC.

Until relatively recently (1980s), scientists believed that CBD was a natural precursor to the formation of THC, and since THC was a strictly controlled substance back then (it still is), it only followed that CBD should be equally strictly regulated.

However, CBD is actually unrelated to the chemical chain that results in THC. They share some characteristics but are created via different paths. Again, unlike THC, CBD is considered a legal cannabinoid and is safe to consume in any amount and concentration.

Will I get High?
CBD does not have any of the psychoactive properties associated with marijuana. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that it doesn’t get you ‘high’ like THC. CBD’s appeal is medicinal: It can function as a painkiller, reduce inflammation, fight nausea, and treat mood disorders.

Is CBD legal?
Yes.
