What is CBD

CBD is extracted from the HEMP plant and is one of the most prevalent chemical compounds in the Cannabis Plant. Completely legal, this molecule is non-psychoactive. You cannot get “high” from this organic chemical. However, CBD is all relaxation without intoxication.

How does it work?

CBD (Cannibdiol) is one of many chemical compounds known as Cannabinoids. Cannabinoids work directly with special receptors on your cells, called cannabinoid receptors. Certain receptors are heavily concentrated in the central nervous system while others are found in almost every organ of the body. Together these receptors make up a larger Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

The ECS is a vast network of cell receptor proteins with many functions. Some describe the ECS as the greatest neurotransmitter system in the body. It plays a role in just about everything.

There are four primary purposes of the ECS which include Neuroprotection, stress recovery, immune balance and homeostatic regulation (a fancy way of referring to optimum energy balance in the body)

CBD taps into our balancing system producing these therapeutic effects. CBD can interact efficiently and effectively because the molecules have a similar composition to similar chemicals that the human body produces naturally, called endocannabinoids.

It’s not often that a plant compound can make the headlines over and over again. However, CBD is doing just that.

  • Protein: Every 100g of hemp seed has 33g of protein, including the complete Amino Acid profile necessary for life and the function of our bodies.
  • Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs): Hemp seeds have the perfect ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6, which helps boost our immune system, and keep our hail and nails shiny. Every 100g of hemp seeds has 47g of EFAs.
  • Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA): Hemp seeds are one of only 5 known sources of this ‘wonder oil’ believed to prevent inflammation.
  • Phytosterols: Hemp seeds contain high amounts of cholesterol-fighting plant sterols, with 1480 mg present in only 20g of hemp seeds.
  • Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): Hemp seeds have over 15 times as much of the fat-fighting acid as fish oil.

Hemp seeds also have a plethora of fat-soluble vitamins and minerals including Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Zinc, B Vitamins, Vitamin E, and Vitamin D3 (the only known plant source of D3!) as well as antioxidants and enzymes.

Coming Soon – Hempful Cosmetics

“Hemp Seed Oil – Softer skin is just the start, Hemp Seed Oil protects and feeds the skin with its unique mix of essential nutrients”

Hempful produces 100{92f63390deb9989b59f5848e6b6f2c7b1274fc54a238f3149358d0d5bb11c1b5} natural Hemp Rich Cosmetics, made from our very own cold pressed Hemp Seed Oil. Non-greasy Hemp Seed oil penetrates the skin delivering rich nourishment and moisture where it can provide the most benefit. Hemp seed oil has the reputation of containing many health benefits.

Hemp oil is a good source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are called essential fats because they are needed to maintain healthy cells, nerves and brain function. These fatty acids have to be absorbed from food because the body does not produce them.

Nutritional benefits of hemp oil are accompanied by topical benefits when it is used to cleanse and moisturize the skin. It also adds a protective layer to the skin, helps prevent rashes and provides relief for acne.

The fats, or lipids, in hemp oil are similar to those found in the skin which makes it an effective moisturizer and increases the elasticity of the skin. Hemp oil brings new life to dry, tired or dehydrated skin.

Hemp oil is used in lotions, shampoos, conditioners, sunscreens, lip balms and other products for the skin. The moisturizing properties of the oil are one reason for adding it to these products. It also adds vitamin D to the skin, allowing the absorption of calcium that is needed for soft, smooth skin.

It can also be used as a gentle makeup remover. If all of the makeup doesn’t come off with one application of the oil, it can be repeated. You are getting the added benefit of providing moisture to your face while cleansing it.

In their 2016 Beauty industry report, expert trend forecasters from the future Laboratory in London predict Cannabis to be world’s #1 must-have beauty ingredients due to its unique skin balancing and protecting properties.
