We have always believed in the healing properties of the hemp plant for its incredible wellness and health benefits. However, cannabis has been for the longest time, a source of stigma, confusion and even fear in our society. We are thrilled to be living in times in which cannabis and its benefits are more accessible to everyone than ever before, and we are thrilled to include this medicinal remedy into all of our wholesome formulas.
CBD is rich in antioxidants, fatty acids, vitamins A, D and E, and it is proven to have extremely high anti-inflammatory properties. When used in skincare, it fights signs of early aging as it locks in moisture of the cells, and it also diminishes inflammation and irritation of the skin, being a powerful soothing and calming agent. As part of our carefully crafted formulas which contain handpicked natural ingredients, it becomes a healing and powerful ally for anyone with sensitive skin.
When used in a higher concentration as you will find it in our Protean Palliative CBD Salve (which contains 300 mg of Full Spectrum CBD), it becomes a powerful analgesic which helps reduce pain in targeted areas. Its wide array of benefits will aid in the relief of joints affected by chronic pain, or sore muscles after a strong workout . Additionally, it speeds up the natural recovery process of the body.
A common misconception is that CBD could make someone 'high' because it comes from the marijuana plant. The reality is that while Full Spectrum CBD does contain some THC (the psychoactive component of cannabis) it will never make anyone high for it contains less than 0.3% and in those numbers, it could never have that effect.
Why do we use Full Spectrum in our salve and not isolate where the THC has been completely removed? Because having all the terpenes and phytocannabinoids (including some THC), unleashes a reaction called the entourage effect which amplifies the plant's therapeutic benefits.
