What is Hemp?

Hemp is one of the oldest crops known to humankind. Categorized in the cannabis family, it has been used for medicinal purposes, paper, textiles and so much more for thousands of years. CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural compound of cannabis. It's a natural occurring substance that's used in products for benefits such as anti-aging skincare, relaxation, calmness and healing.

Difference Between CBD & THC

It is important to know that unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) marijuana, CBD is not psychoactive - which means you do not get "high" and products with 100% CBD is not an illegal drug. Our bodies all have an Endocannabinoid System which works with cannabanoids like CBD to help with a wide array of ailments like pain relief, inflammation, anxiety/depression, illness and so much more. CBD has also been shown to do wonders for our skin due to the anti-inflammation properties, vitamins A, D, and E, and essential fatty acids, along with numerous other reasons.

"Because of cannabinoids’ anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, using it can reduce puffiness, swelling, and even soreness" says Jessica Assaf, The Cannabis Feminist. “It’s this all-in-one solution because of its ability to target those problems simultaneously,” she says. “CBD binds to a special set of receptors in the skin known as TRPV-1 receptors, where it can help feelings of heat, itch, and pain,” says Joshua Zeichner, MD, a New York-based dermatologist.
