The Beauty Benefits of CBD
What is CBD Anyway?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, one of the primary active compounds called cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. In fact, CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. The two most well-known Cannabis sativa cannabinoids are CBD (which does not get you high) and tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC (which does.)
Scientific studies discovered that the human body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which functions mainly to promote biological harmony in response to the body’s environmental changes. Additional studies have shown that the body’s ECS is involved in a wide variety of processes including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function and reproductive function.
CBD helps elevate your body’s natural endocannabinoid levels to regulate your biological response to both external and internal stressors. Studies have shown CBD to be effective in reducing inflammation and helping to balance your body’s biological response to pain, stress and anxiety.
Is There a Difference Between CBD and Marijuana?
Yes: the term cannabis refers to all products derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. Marijuana refers only to the parts or products of the Cannabis sativa plant that contain substantial amounts of THC.
In short, CBD will promote your body’s overall biological well-being without leaving you dazed and confused.
Is There a Difference Between Marijuana and Hemp?
Yes. While hemp and marijuana are both derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, they are not actually cannabis plants themselves. Hemp is a term used to classify varieties of cannabis that contain 0.3% or less THC content. Marijuana classifies varieties of cannabis that contain 0.3% or more THC content.
HEMP SEED OIL
Is There a Difference Between Hemp Oil/Hempseed Oil and CBD?
Absolutely. While CBD and hemp oil/hempseed oil are all derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, hemp or hempseed oil does NOT contain CBD. Hemp oil and hempseed oilprovide anti-inflammatory properties that soothe skin irritationcaused by acne, psoriasis and eczema. These oils also help prevent early signs of aging by reducing the presence of fine lines and wrinkles.
Which Is Better: CBD Oil or Nano CBD?
Everyone knows oil and water don’t mix. So with the human body comprised of roughly 60% water, can CBD oil can really make an impact?
The answer is yes: whether you choose a product with CBD oil or Nano CBD, you will feel the effect on your body’s natural endocannabinoid levels.The question comes down to bioavailability, defined as the proportion of any drug or other substance to enter into the body’s circulation and have an active effect. Different forms of CBD achieve varying levels of bioavailability.
Oil-based CBD provides a slower, more sustained release into the bloodstream, with up to 20% of the CBD oil reaching the bloodstream directly. Nano (Water Soluble ) CBD reduces the CBD oil compounds to increase absorption by the body. Nano CBD can be absorbed by the body at a rate near 100%, which means you will feel the impact more quickly. In general you can expect 3-4 times faster than CBD oil.
The bottom line: you can easily increase or decrease your CBD intake by incorporating a variety of oil-based and water-soluble options.
What is Entourage Effect?
Full-spectrum CBD means the extract contains all of the phytochemicals naturally found in the cannabis plant, including CBD, trace cannabinoids, terpenes and essential oils. Full-spectrum CBD extract also includes a negligible THC content (below 0.3%).
Some of the additional cannabinoids found in full-spectrum extracts include:
CBN, CBC, CBG, CBDA, CBDV
The combination of all phytochemicals and THC found in full-spectrum CBD helps to amply the unique benefits of each individual cannabinoid. This is often referred to as the Entourage Effect.
The Entourage Effect is the working synergy among all of the cannabis components, with each individual component working together with other cannabis compounds to enhance health and wellness benefits while mitigating any potential side effects.
Do you want Entourage effect but THC FREE?
Broad-spectrum CBD refers to extracts containing many of the phytochemicals naturally found in the cannabis plant including CBD along with additional cannabinoids, terpenes and essential oils. There is one very notable difference from full-spectrum CBD: broad-spectrum CBD contains NO traces of THC, which is completely removed after the initial extraction.
Broad-spectrum CBD contains many of the phytochemicals found in full-spectrum CBD extracts but without any THC. It also creates an Entourage Effect with the enhancement of CBD’s health benefits while at the same time reducing possible side effects.
What if you don't need entourage effect?
CBD Isolate refers to extracts containing only cannabidiol. CBD Isolate does not contain THC or any other phytochemicals naturally derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. This extraction process leaves behind pure CBD in crystal form, delivering the most highly concentrated CBD product currently available.
