What is CBD???*
Cannabidiol, commonly know as CBD, is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in cannabis plants ( marijuana and hemp). It is one of two active ingredients in cannabis. the other being THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, in other words, it will not make you high.
Research has shown the CBD can be effective in alleviating anxiety, inflammation and pain, insomnia, and some forms of childhood epilepsy. CBD has also shown to prevent cognitive decline. It also thought to be effective in treating substance use disorder.
In the area of skincare, CBD will reduce the production of sebum, helping to fight acne. Also, it is indicated to be effective in treating eczema and psoriasis. Research is fairly limited but it is considered safe to use topically.
Choosing the right CBD skincare products!
All infused products are formulated using full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, or CBD isolate.
Full-spectrum contains all the compounds found in hemp, including trace THC, broad-spectrum contains no THC. CBD isolate is the purest form, no other compounds. This is the best option for skincare products, it will not clog pores. It is packed with rejuvenating anti-oxidants. Look for hemp extract, broad-spectrum, full spectrum on the label. Beware, the hemp seed oil isn't CBD oil. CBD oil is extracted from the leaves and flowers of the plant. Seed oil is heavier and greasier.
Also, is it legal?
CBD oil is legal in all 50 states. Infusing it in food and certain products is an open question. Generally, anything with 3% or less THC is also legal. It is very easy to obtain CBD you purchase it online with a medical license.
