WHAT IS CBD?

CBD ( cannabidiol), is the active ingredient in cannabis that comes from the hemp plant, but it does not cause a high and is not addictive! CBD oil comes in many different strengths, and people can utilize it in many different ways. The compound is extracted from hemp (more on this later) and then combined with formulations for products such as skincare and beauty. The 2018 Farm Bill (recent legislation on farming regulations) legalized hemp for industrial purposes, putting CBD in the spotlight of beauty lovers nationwide!

But why do you want it?

Experts attribute the popularity of CBD to its “do anything” reputation. Due to its potential anti-inflammatory properties. Aside from the usual claims of helping with anxiety and pain, but CBD may also be helpful for treating things like many skin conditions, including acne, eczema, and psoriasis because of the anti-inflammatory properties. For this reason, many high-end beauty brands have now added it to some of their products.

Tell me more!

CBD is extracted from Hemp. Hemp is defined as any part of the cannabis sativa plant (sometimes called marijuana) with less than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (dry weight), the mind-altering substance in marijuana. Marijuana is defined as any part of the cannabis sativa plant with more than 0.3% of THC (dry weight), the substance in marijuana that causes mind-altering. You may be thinking ok, I understand it now, I just want CBD products. But wait, there’s more you should know!

Hidden Facts.

CBD skin care may contain traces of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, (the known chemical that makes people ‘high’). How is that possible? THC is allowed to be in the skincare but, remember by law it must be less than ) 0.3% . If you’re looking for all the benefits with out THC you will want to make sure you’re reading your labels. If you are also environmentally conscious then, you will also want to look for products that have been sustainably sourced, and/ or packaged as well!

Where to find it.

If you’re looking for high quality CBD products, minus the high cost, then I would recommend, checking out these products from a company that has been on the front line of beauty and skincare for over a century! That company you may be surprised to find out is, not a high-end brand like you would expect, it’s AVON! You will find Avon’s Green Goddess Facial Oil is made from hemp and does not contain any THC. There is no worry, that you will get high! Green Goddess Facial Oil not only leaves your skin feeling calm and revitalized, it is sustainably sourced, too!!!

The oil contains 100mg of CBD! What does that mean? It’s going to give you a relaxing experience, by soothing and moisturizing! It also, features a blend of other plant-derived ingredients including, turmeric (to combat redness and irritation), sugarcane-derived squalane oil and sunflower seed oil (to moisturize and soften the skin) for a formula that’s 99% natural and packed with antioxidants that help nourish, repair and protect skin.
