What is CBD?
The CBD used in our Life Elements CBD & Honey™ Collection is derived from the hemp plant and contains 0.0% THC. Cannabidiol, or CBD, has a wide variety of medicinal and therapeutic effects and is a known anti-inflammatory, with antioxidant and anti-aging properties. As an antioxidant, CBD can help protect the skin from free radicals like UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants. Free radicals lead to wrinkles and fine lines, but antioxidants protect our skin from this damage and help fight the effects of aging.
Is it legal?
All of the CBD & Honey™ products are made with Broad Spectrum Hemp-derived CBD, which is legal per the Hemp provision of the 2018 Farm Bill.
What exactly is a “topical”?
Topical applications of CBD work to reduce inflammation on soft tissue, such as skin, muscles and ligaments. It works very quickly because of the multitude of CB2 receptors underneath the skin. Used this way the CBD does not cross the blood/brain barrier and is non-psychoactive.
Will I get high?
No. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects, i.e. it will not get you “high.” Our topical products are designed for localized treatment speaking to the CB2 receptors in the skin, not the CB1 receptors in the brain.
What is “Broad Spectrum CBD?”
Broad-spectrum hemp CBD refers to the method of extraction, which includes the same cannabinoid profile present in the original hemp plant but takes the extra step to remove all traces of THC. This is crucial because it allows the cannabinoids to function together, resulting in higher efficacy and perfectly reflects the saying: The sum is greater than the whole of the parts, otherwise know as the “entourage effect.”
