Have you heard about all the new CBD hype in skincare? If you haven't, you must be hiding under a rock! It's absolutely everywhere. I've seen it on social media, in magazines, on reality tv, and entertainment news shows. It's all the craze right now and of course, it sparked my attention. Having suffered from serious back issues, a lot of people have recommended CBD, including some of my favorite clients. I've always been hesitant. I'm not the first person to turn to holistic methods or treatments... but when I saw the benefits in skincare, I HAD to learn more and I thought it would be great to give you a little information about it.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound derived from HEMP which is a strand from the Cannabis Sativa Family. It contains NO Psychoactive effects or stimulation in the body.
CBD is an incredible healing antioxidant (stronger than Vitamin C & E) and is responsible for providing homeostasis in cellular functions, focusing on relief and healing.
Is CBD Legal?
Yes CBD is legal in all 50 States with varying restrictions. -- CBD is not the same as THC (Marijuana).
Why is USA Grown Important?
Not all CBD is created equal — many other companies source their CBD from outside of the USA (China, Asia, Europe, and Canada). CBD from overseas contains heavy metals, toxins, and chemicals.
Sourcing from the US ensures that we can control and verify the purity of our CBD. ONLY US Grown CBD Farms sustain practices that use ZERO pesticides and follow strict standards for quality.
