Why We Infused it w/ CBD
Posted on November 06 2019
The power of CBD is undeniable. Talk to just about anyone that uses it and you’ll hear stories about the magic that is cannabidiol. If you’re new to CBD or just need a refresher, let’s go over the basics and why we decided to infuse our hydrating body oil with this magical substance.
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients (called cannabinoids) in cannabis. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.”
But what is it exactly? What does it do?
As we mentioned, CBD is one of many compounds, known as cannabinoids, in the cannabis plant. All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by interacting with certain receptors. Receptors are a group of specialized cells that are used by the body to detect different stimuli (changes in the environment). Interacting with these receptors encourages the body to produce more of its own cannabinoids helping the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, mood, thinking, appetite, memories, and other functions. The most notable studies so far have found that the most promising of these impacts relates to the body’s ability to manage inflammation and pain.
To sum all of that up, CBD helps encourage the body to manage ailments in a more efficient manner.
As avid users of CBD ourselves, we decided to infuse our body oil with it to help more people access its many benefits. Our formula unleashes these benefits on the skin creating a soothing and calming effect. By combining CBD with vitamin E, bergamot, and geranium your skin will benefit from:
