What is CBD? Right now you are reading a lot about CBD but knowing exactly what it is and what it does is what this is all about. One thing for sure is that you’ll hear more and more about CBD in products. It’s holding reign and growing. It’s a good antioxidant that can help protect against free radical damage to skin cells.samples
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.
CBD is closely related to another important medicinally active phytocannabinoid: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that causes the high that cannabis is famous for. These are the two components of cannabis that have been most studied by scientists.
Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.
That’s a synopsis taken from Project CBD. It’s just the beginning though of everything there is to know about CBD. One of the important things to take away from this is that it’s a safe, non-addictive substance and won’t make you feel “buzzed”.
I was sent three of the products that CBD Living has created to test and share with you. The one I’m using on a daily basis is CBD LIVING LOTION. This is available in three scents: invigorating eucalyptus, relaxing lavender and unscented for those with sensitive skin. Those of you who read Beauty Info Zone on a regular basis know that I chose Unscented.
When you buy a product claiming to have CBD as an ingredient you want to make sure that it’s a legit company that is selling you what it claims to sell you. Bogus companies will pop up everywhere since the ingredient is so hot. CBD Living is a global CBD manufacturer and distributor and one that can be trusted. “First established in 2013 and headquartered in Corona, California, CBD Living has a global reach for our products through our vast distribution in stores all over the world. Our products are organically grown in Colorado at a state-licensed hemp farm and extraction facility.” The company even shows the veracity of their products in charts about their test results.
CBD LIVING LOTION is a large pump bottle (16 oz) that contains 250 mg of nano-CBD that was grown in Colorado and is 100% organic as well as vegan and cruelty-free. The lotion has healing properties for dry skin. CBD Lotion is absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, providing your daily dose of CBD. It is great for relaxing after a long day or invigorating the senses and treating dry skin.
The Unscented is truly unscented which I don’t find in every “unscented” product that I try. That means I don’t have to just leave it for below the waist use. I use it on my whole body knowing that I’m not going to regret it during the day. I’ve started using it on my hands too since they are particularly dry. I’m a leftie and my pointer finger gets almost callused. The lotion is very light in texture and absorbs immediately. I don’t have to worry about it when typing or reading. It’s on my hand and working to treat the cause of the dryness.
It’s a wonderful product for itchy skin and when my husband is around after my shower I’ll ask him to massage it onto my itchy back and he doesn’t even mind. Of course there’s also lavender and eucalyptus for those of you who enjoy scents.
CBD LIVING makes a huge variety of products including edibles, pet capsules, tinctures and more topical products. I have the CBD Living Soap and CBD Living Bath Bomb too.
CBD Living Soap is available in four invigorating scents.
They are $14 each. These soaps infuse coconut oil, terpenes and CBD for a rich and luxurious shower experience. CBD in this soap is absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream and will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. The Eucalyptus has a mild almost spearmint fragrance to it, next I’d like to try coconut lime.
The bar has a creamy feel to it once you lather up with it and the soothing effect lasts for 8 to 12 hours. It feels refreshing to use this in my shower. Hemp Oil extracts are used in the processing of these and all topicals from CBD Living.
The CBD Bath Bomb is not some light fluffy thing. The bomb is like a bomb! It’s heavy and dissolves in water. Drop it in a bath of warm water and let it dissolve. I believe you can get several baths from one bomb ($14).
Why use this when a regular bath bomb is half the price?
CBD Bath Bombs are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, providing your daily dose of CBD. They are great for relaxing after a long day or invigorating the senses with a warm morning bath. They’ll leave your skin feeling softer.
Suitable for all skin types, including:
Of all the products I believe this is the most effective for relieving the pains you are seeking relief from as well as providing a long term residual feeling.
CBD Living’s products are all lab tested and go through a rigorous quality assurance process. Each product is tested thoroughly before it is placed on the shelf. “Our products are not made with harsh chemicals and will not irritate the skin.”
I suggest you consider this line when you are looking to expand your horizons. We laugh a little at the thought of CBD but it really has a lot of wonderful benefits. — Marcia
