CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the most popular cannabinoids found in hemp plants. It’s structurally very similar to endocannabinoids produced by the human body. That includes anandamide (AEA) which is the body’s own antidepressant and 2-AG, which plays an important role in the regulation of appetite, immune system functions and pain management. When CBD enters the body, it is able to influence the human endocannabinoid system and produce benefits associated with AEA and 2-AG.
One of the primary reasons CBD has become so popular is because with the incredible perceived benefits, it does not contain THC and doesn’t contribute to the “high” that is associated with cannabis.
The beauty industry is excited about CBD due to its anti-inflammatory, pain relief and moisturizing properties. CBD has been shown to promote skin health, as well as help with symptoms of skin conditions like acne. CBD is also a renowned anti-inflammatory and can induce soothing effects when used topically.
Yet, not all CBD products are created equal. At OrgHarvest, we always recommend choosing products where the CBD is traceable. Ensuring that your beauty product contains superior quality hemp CBD translates to the product’s overall effectiveness. Our Global Master Agreement with First Seed Farms guarantees that our brands and white label products only contain the best hemp.
So be sure to research any CBD beauty product properly before spending your money on it. Ideally, you’ll want to use products that utilize clean extraction methods for their CBD oil (preferably CO₂), that are organically grown (and can be traced as such) and always opt for products that use a whole plant extract. Products using isolated CBD work very differently as they don’t contain the terpenes and other active ingredients found in the hemp/cannabis plant. Research has shown that effects of CBD are at their best when the product is used in combination with other compounds found in the whole plant (this is known as the “entourage effect”).
