The Body Shop’s best selling hand cream – and for good reason, this 100% natural salve softens and saves dry hands faster than you can say weed. You can use it on other areas that are super dry, too. It has been dermatologically tested, so is safe for sensitive and reactive skins. We wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without it.
Now for a speedy science lesson: CBD is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your smoking stance) it isn’t THC so it won’t get you high. It can however reduce pain and inflammation, including skin conditions like acne and eczema and is a known source of antioxidants. Our bodies have natural receptors for cannabis extracts, so they can get to work fast, which is why they’re so sought after in skincare.
This full spectrum CBD oil contains the highest quality European organic grown Cannabis Sativa L extract available in the UK. It works incredibly fast, and is the first thing you should turn to when you’re desperate to nod off at night. Put 2-5 drops (depending on your tolerance) beneath your tongue and leave for 90 seconds before swallowing.
Milk Makeup’s Kush is not just any old wand. The first ever to be formulated with cannabis oil, it is the most moisturising mascara yet (clumps? Never heard of them). Volume? Check. Curl? Check. Long lasting? Check. It really is a cut above the rest.
New kid on the block CBVIT’s formulas contain a blend of nourishing natural oils and premium grade CBD. Aside from their broad-spectrum oils, their Active Hemp Ointment is undoubtedly our favourite. If, like us, your hands currently feel like sandpaper from excessive washing, this balm is about to be your best friend. It treats a myriad of reactive skin conditions, including eczema, severe dryness, psoriasis and scars. It’s also a powerful pain reliever and smells like heaven thanks to an infusion of rosemary, lemon peel and macadamia oil.
Delve into the wonderful world of CBD and you’ll see some ingredient discrepancy – CBD oil and hemp oil are not actually the same thing, although many brands market them as such. Hemp oil contains trace amounts of CBD which, although considered to be insignificant, still work wonders on our skin, so, heads up, we’ve decided to include them, too.
CBD has become one of beauty’s biggest commodities. When news first spread, we were sceptical, assuming it would be another fad. But with a recent report finding that sales of CBD products have increased by a whopping 99%, and purchases near doubling in 2019, it looks like it is definitely here to stay.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls; let me formally introduce you to this glow-booting elixir from supreme skincare brand Herbivore. Their first cannabis-infused offering, a blend of restorative oils: hemp seed, meadowfoam seed and borage seed, work alongside powerful antioxidants ashwagandha, turmeric and shiitake mushrooms to protect, revitalise and hydrate. They feel so strongly about the life-changing benefits of cannabis that in the US, every Emerald sale sees $1 donated to women-owned cannabis organisations.
CBD is well tolerated even in large doses. Research suggests that any side effects that occur with the use of CBD are likely due to drug-to-drug interactions between CBD and other drugs you may be taking.
And because they are so easy to ship, one of the best places to find CBD patches is online.
Both CBD and THC have exactly the same molecular structure: 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms and 2 oxygen atoms. A slight difference in the way the atoms are arranged explains the different effects on your body.
However, it is not the most efficient method in terms of bioavailability. This means that it is not very powerful, but it is simple and sufficiently effective.
And with CBD, there is still no solid evidence that it can cure ailments and / or diseases. CBD is not a drug.
Who is the CBD Patch for?
When THC comes into contact with the liver, it converts it into 11-hydroxy-THC. This is a derivative form with stronger psychoactive effects.
Things change when you start eating weed. The main difference from smoking or vaping is that it takes longer for the effects to occur.
