FAQ + CBD

WHERE DOES CBD COME FROM?

CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis, also 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, ingesting or applying topically CBD.

 

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

WHY USE CBD ON YOUR SKIN?

You already know that inflammation is the root cause of oh-so-many skin woes, from acne to rosacea. Because of cannabinoids’ anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, using it can reduce puffiness, swelling, and even soreness. 
It’s an all-in-one solution because of its ability to target those problems simultaneously.

Studies have shown that CBD can potentially be helpful for fighting acne, too, and may even give your skin a more youthful appearance, thanks to its inflammation-fighting prowess. And here’s yet another anecdotal way cannabis is becoming a BFF for holistic types: It can potentially help relieve pain. 

CBD binds to a special set of receptors in the skin known as TRPV1receptors, where it can help feelings of heat, itch, and pain. This explains why it has a soothing effect on the skin. Just as other natural oils are used in skin care, the natural fatty acids and antioxidants in hempseed oil make it a good choice for people with dry skin and eczema.

IS CBD 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.

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.
