WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. CBD research has shown that it has calming and therapeutic benefits when applied topically to the skin. It has been shown to help reduce pain and inflammation caused by inflammatory skin conditions, and may even help ease the discomfort of headaches. CBD also has potent antioxidant effects, which means it may help counteract signs of aging caused by free radicals and reduce redness.
CBG AND CBN?
CBG (Cannabigerol) is a compound also found in the Cannabis plant. It is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antimicrobial, resulting in reduction of damage causing free radicals and helping to raise the bodys natural ability to fight toxins. CBN (Cannabinol) eases the overgrowth of skin cells, helping to aleve psoriasis, promotes skin regeneration, smooths burning and itching skin.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
CBD functions by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body's endocannabinoid system. These receptors have been found in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body (hence the seemingly endless array of CBD uses).
WILL THE MASK INTERFERE WITH MY SKINCARE ROUTINE?
No, the MASK will not disrupt the skin while using other products.
WILL I GET HIGH FROM THE MASK?
No, it does not have the components to get you "high."
WHAT IF I GET AN ALLERGIC REACTION?
Please check the ingredients beforehand and a patch test is recommended with the serum to see if there is any reaction.
WHAT IS THE AMOUNT OF MILLIGRAMS OF CBD IN EACH SHEET MASK?
IS CBD LEGAL?
In states where MMJ is legal, any CBD product (whether it comes from hemp or marijuana) is of course perfectly legal. Outside of these legalized states (including shipping from legal to non-legal states), things tend to be a little less clear. According to ProjectCBD.org, Federal law prohibits U.S. farmers from cultivating hemp as a commercial crop, but the sale of imported, low-THC, industrial hemp products is permitted in the United States.
Technically, this means that as long as the CBD product (oil, vape, topical, etc) is produced from the seeds and stalk of the industrial hemp plant (with less than 0.3% THC), it is permissible to buy, sell, and ship across state lines. (However, in articles like 2014's Farm Bill, the exact rule seems to be a little less clear). All in all, the fact remains that millions of people buy and use CBD products every day of their lives, and this option is only getting more popular and widespread with each passing day.
IS CBD NATURAL?
Yes, CBD is a 100% naturally-occurring chemical compound that comes directly from the cannabis plant. It is not synthetically made.
HOW IS CBD ISOLATED FROM THE CANNABIS PLANT?
CO2 extraction is the best method to extract pure CBD isolate, in which state it exists as a clear/white crystal. This method is preferred over other methods because it leaves practically zero traces of chemical contaminants in the end product.
Alcohol extraction is another method, wherein a liquid such as ethanol, butane, or hexane is run through raw plant material to extract the CBD and then evaporated to leave only the active cannabinoid. This can be a dangerous method because it's prone to leaving excess traces of the butane or hexane chemicals in the extract. Also, infusing vegetable oil (i.e. olive oil) is another effective way of extracting CBD. All you do is grind up the raw plant material, decarboxylate (heat) it, and let it sit in boiling (100-deg Celsius) oil for about 2 hours.
ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS OF USING CBD? IS IT SAFE?
The only significant danger/side effect of the drug is in vaping CBD oils that were produced using a thinning agent, such as propylene glycol. When burned/vaped, propylene glycol produces formaldehyde, which is a known carcinogen.
CBD oils produced by CO2 extraction are much safer and purer than oils that were produced with liquid alcohol/thinning agents. Other than that, most research has concluded that CBD is perfectly safe with no known side effects, though some users have reported drowsiness, lightheadedness, low blood pressure, and dry mouth.
ARE THERE STUDIES ON CBD?
Thousands of scientific studies have been carried out specifically on CBD. Project CBD is a non-profit organization strictly dedicated to documenting the research progress on this incredible drug.
WHAT ABOUT CBD TOPICALS¦ DO THEY WORK?
CBD topicals have proven effective for a number of circumstances. Many individuals swear by them.
WILL CBD SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?
A high-quality CBD product with minimal THC is unlikely to show up on a drug test. However, low-quality CBD products may contain more traces of THC than they claim, in which case it is possible for a screening to pick up on the drug. (Research has shown that people who consume 6 mg of THC per day have a 25% chance of failing a drug test. This translates to about 2,000 mg per day of CBD oil with a THC content of 0.3% or less).
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SERVING OF CBD TO TAKE?
This one is tricky because it, of course, depends on what you're using the compound for, and also on how strong the product is. Most people consume between 10-50 mg of CBD per day total. (For reference, 1 mL of a potent oil might contain 50 mg of CBD. Make sure you read the label on your product to ensure a proper serving.
HOW DO I KNOW IT'S SAFE TO PURCHASE CBD ONLINE?
To ensure the legality of buying CBD products online, you need to make sure the company you're buying from is reputable and that the product was made from industrial hemp with less than 0.3% THC content. While transporting marijuana across state lines (from legal to non-legal states) is against the law, transporting hemp and hemp-based products is safe. Remember, millions of people all over the US (and the globe) are using CBD products every day.
