CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant and does not cause a euphoric “high” like it’s sister-compound, tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. When applied topically, CBD jumpstarts your skin’s ability to regenerate itself on a cellular level. CBD offers a significant advantage for proposed medicinal uses and self-care products (ahem…CAUSE+MEDIC) due to its strong anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Q: HOW DOES CAUSE+MEDIC HELP THE SKIN AND BODY?
Your skin's receptors (referred to as CB2) are activated by your body's own endocannabinoids which allow your skin to regenerate on a cellular level. These receptors can also be activated by outside sources such as, you guessed it, CBD or phytocannbinoids. CBD actually stimulates cellular turnover quicker than your body does on its own. What does this mean for your skin? Well by speeding up the process of skin regeneration we can slow down the effects of aging, various skin conditions, and even repair skin damage (shout out to all you sun worshipping, party monsters out there!)
