Cannabis in Skin Care in a Nutshell!
CBD also known as cannabidiol is extracted from the Cannabis Sativa plant species which includes marijuana & hemp.
Unlike with marijuana, where THC also known as tetrahydrocannabinol, has psycho-active properties, CBD derived from hemp does not!
To help you better understand, your endocannabinoid system has receptors spread throughout your body, CB1 receptor & CB2 receptor.
THC is a compound that binds to the CB1 receptor, it is also activated by the natural cannabinoids that exist in your body.
CB2 receptor is linked more to the function & response of your immune system, & is triggered when there is inflammation.
Isolated CBD, an oil-soluble compound that allows for cellular penetration, can activate your endocannabinoid receptors, without actually binding to them.
CBD activates a wellness response from your skin & body minus the psychoactive side-effects or controversy.
