CBD, CBN & CBG: The Ingredients Behind the MĀSK
Let’s face it: CBD is having a moment. Lately, it’s hard to walk past even the corner convenience store without seeing a sign boasting of CBD products being sold inside. But with its increasing familiarity, consumers are becoming more curious about its efficacy, its sourcing and what differentiates one CBD-infused product from another. Because we founded MĀSK not only on the powerful benefits of full-spectrum CBD, but on additional skin-enhancing cannabinoids CBN and CBG, we’re sharing our expertise on what to expect from CBN-, CBG- and CBD-based skincare, and what makes MĀSK different from anything your skin has experienced before.
CBG, CBN & CBD: Seeing is Believing
CBD, or cannabidiol, is derived from the cannabis plant, but contains no THC—the compound in marijuana that makes people feel “high.” Instead, CBD works on the cannabinoid receptors within our bodies’ endocannabinoid system—a system responsible for processes such as mood, appetite, pain or memory. When ingested, CBD is often used to help calm feelings of anxiety or stress, but it also works internally and topically as an anti-inflammatory, helping restore the body—and skin—to a state of balance.
CBD is also chock full of antioxidants, so it helps fight free radicals, the cause of oxidative stress—which can lead to aging, making skin more wrinkled, uneven, inflamed and prone to issues like rosacea.
Other, less commercially recognized cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant are CBG, or cannibigerol, and CBN, or cannabinol. Though CBN was the first cannabinoid to be identified by scientists, it has yet to gain the buzz that CBD has—but that doesn’t mean it’s any less effective. In fact, we’ve added both CBN and CBG to our MĀSK ingredient list because of their highly coveted abilities to work as anti-inflammatories while delivering powerful antibacterial action in a gentle, skin-supporting manner. In fact, CBG is also more easily absorbed by the body’s endocannabinoid system, and has been touted as having antibiotic properties—and that means calmer skin, one sheet MĀSK at a time.
The Secrets of MĀSK Skincare
CBD works simultaneously with CBN and CBG to calm inflammation and combat free radicals, so skin is once again in harmony. The result is healthy looking skin that moves easily through the world, functioning as it should and radiant with well-being. MĀSK uses only full-spectrum CBD in our sheet MĀSKs, and coupled with CBN and CBG, these compounds deliver three times the anti-inflammatory benefits, calming stressed skin, soothing conditions such as acne and psoriasis and encouraging skin to glow.
And why do we use full spectrum CBD in our MĀSK products? Because it contains the full array of cannabinoids, making it the most powerful and effective. Each MĀSK sheet MĀSK is formulated with only natural, plant-derived ingredients, renowned for their abilities to address specific skincare concerns with each use.
