ALL ABOUT CBD
For years now we’ve been observing a global fashion for looking back into the past traditions when searching for the solutions of the future.
A sort of nostalgia for the country-side peace of the old times took us to the point where people more and more look for all natural in all its manifestations, reaching out for artificial products as a last resort.
And here is when and why CBD popped off.
we reach as a last resort. CBD appeared on the wave of this trend.
What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is the most famous and tested organic chemical compound found
in hemp. There are 3 types of this plant: Sativa, Indica and Rudelaris . CBD is mainly sourced
from the Sativa variety, which we know in Poland as industrial (sowing) hemp. Hemp
contains a low level of illegal THC, which makes it possible to grow them for the most part
EU countries. CBD and THC are similar in chemical structure, they are obtained from similar plants, and they exhibit
medical properties, the difference is that CBD is non-intoxicating.
CBD is primarily found in the form of an oil. It is used not only as an ingredient supporting healing processes, but also as an ingredient in cosmetics. Studies show that this compound helps with:
- anxiety, anxiety states,
- inflammation in various parts of the body,
- pain, seizures, recovery from addiction,
- cardiovascular disease (by lowering blood pressure),
- sleep disorders (prolongs the REM phase, calms down),
- irritable bowel syndrome,
CBD oil is used in cosmetology, i.e. Cannabis sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil . It is highly desirable due to its unique composition – almost 80% of these are EFAs – unsaturated fatty acids from the group of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. It also includes amino acids , proteins, minerals, carotene, phospholipids, vitamins A, D, E, K. CBD oil has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, regenerating and antioxidant properties.
The oil is willingly used in cosmetics also due to its application advantages. Its formula means that it does not leave an oily layer on the skin, regulates the secretion of sebum and has anti-acne properties. Many companies have decided to introduce cosmetics into their offer, and even a whole series of cosmetics based on this oil.
Thanks to the large number of beneficial properties, CBD is conquering the pharmaceutical and cosmetic market around the world. The best packaging for CBD cosmetics are glass bottles and glass jars.
