Ok, let’s start with the basics. Cannabis is a type of flowering plants with multiple varieties, most notably, Marijuana and Hemp.

The principal components of cannabis plants are known as cannabinoids and include among many others: 

The difference between hemp and marijuana is in how much THC they contain:

  • Cannabis plants with 0.3 percent or less of THC are hemp.
  • Cannabis plants with more than 0.3 percent THC are marijuana.

Both contain CBD.

While THC medicinal benefits have been studied for decades, studies on the benefits of CBD are more recent.

If you research CBD in the web today (2019), you will find generally two types of perspectives on CBD – In one, CBD is a miracle remedy with many, many benefits. In the other, none of the claimed benefits have been proven. The reality is somewhere in between.

The core benefits where broad scientific evidence for CBD’s benefits has been established are (1):

  • anti-inflammatory benefits in multiple tissue types including skin,
  • antioxidant benefits, and
  • pain relieve.

There is also some evidence that it helps sleep and reduces anxiety. (1)

We have developed our topical CBD oil based on this research to target key issues with sensitive skin rooted in inflammation and anti-aging benefits as an anti-oxidant.

In addition, there is a plethora of positive pharmacological effects observed with CBD that make it highly attractive for its potential for medical therapies for major diseases. While there are multiple completed medical trials today and CBD has started to be approved for various medical conditions, more research is required for other promising medical applications (Note 1).

What we like most about Cannabidiol (CBD):

  • It reduces inflammation through multiple paths alleviating irritation, allergic reactions like sensitive skin, contact dermatitis, rosacea, acne and other skin conditions. (1, 4)
  • It is a more potent anti-oxidant than Vitamin C and Vitamin E as shown below (2)
  • It protects the skin against age-inducing sun UV damage and cell death (2)
  • It repairs cell damage by free-radicals supporting higher production of collagen and elastin (2)
  • It calms and soothes the skin (1)
  • As a whole, it powerfully protects and rejuvenates the skin (1) (2)
  • Studies have indicated that Cannabidiol is not toxic, even when chronically administered to humans (3).
  • It’s a promising acne treatment (5)
  • It calms, balances and soothes the skin for flawless anti-aging of sensitive skin. 
(Note 1) So far, CBD has been approved for the treatment of inflammation, pain and spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis (since 2005) in Canada [1619].   Recently the FDA approved the first ever cannabis-derived medical drug for epilepsy, Epidiolex, which contains CBD. And a US Government patent states that "cannabinoids are useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.”  and it specifically details diseases and conditions that CBD improves.
