What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is extracted from the hemp leaf. It is one of many cannabinoids.
A cannabinoid is a natural chemical compound found in plants from the cannabis-family.
How does CBD work?
Cannabinoids interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system. This may all sound either a bit trippy or super complicated, so let’s break it down:
The human body produces cannabinoids on its own. These are called endocannabinoids, because “endo” means “internal”.
The body also has two kinds of receptors for cannabinoids. Receptors CB1 and CB2.
The overall function of the endocannabinoid system is to provide balance in our bodies.
The cannabinoids act as neurotransmitters which facilitate communication between different systems within the body. CB1 receptors are mainly present in the brain, whereas CB2 receptors are part of the immune system.
The endocannabinoid system informs and regulates your mood, immune system, inflammatory system and signaling of pain.
As a cannabinoid, CBD is able to naturally interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system and thereby help to re-establish balance.
This means that CBD naturally may affect a person’s health and well being.
What is the difference between CBD oil and hemp oil?
Even though they come from the same plant, CBD oil and hemp oil are not the same!
Hemp oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant. The hemp seed contains no cannabinoids.
CBD is extracted from hemp leaves and is a cannabinoid.
Hemp oil might be great both in the kitchen and as a natural moisturizing component, but hemp oil does not have the unique properties of CBD.
Will CBD give me a high?
CBD is not psychoactive. It will not change your state of mind and CBD will not show up in a drug test.
The psychoactive compound in Cannabis is called THC. There is 0% THC in NatureCell CBD skin care products.
In NatureCell CBD oils, small traces of THC might be found – no more than 0,2% THC.
How is CBD made?
CBD is extracted from the leaves of industrial hemp (Cannabis Sativa) by CO2 extraction.
Is CBD legal?
Great question! CBD is a legal substance in many countries, including the EU.
NatureCell CBD skin care was the first CBD skin care series to be approved for sale in Denmark.
Why have CBD skin care products become so popular?
In recent years, CBD seems to have been on everybody’s lips (literally, have you tried our multiserum on dry and chapped lips? Works wonders!)
CBD speaks the body’s own language by activating the receptors of the endocannabinoid system.
Because of this connection, CBD has anti-inflammatory properties. It simulates the natural reproduction of cells and skin’s natural healing.
CBD is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, making it a unique and popular skin care component.
CBD skin care is suitable for all skin types, since it both inhibits sebum production and normalizes overactive sebaceous gland cells. It can relieve inflamed and dry skin, smooth out wrinkles and prevent dry skin.
