Hemp and hemp-derived CBD
Hemp is a plant that is part of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant species. Its strong fibers have been used to make clothing, and the seeds and seed oil are nutritionally dense. Additionally, hemp is a sustainable building material and removes chemicals and heavy metals from the soil, making it an incredibly eco-friendly plant.
Hemp-derived CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that interacts with the body’s Endocannabinoid System— responsible for helping the body get back to balance. There are also plenty of other less-known benefits of CBD like being an effective moisturizer due to its plethora of skin-friendly vitamins and nutrients which is why our Relief & Recovery CBD Cream and Calm & Centered CBD Cream are such total body powerhouses.
Turmeric is a household name at this point, often being found in curries, juices, lattes, and even ice cream! But, Turmeric has been used in ancient Ayurvedic practices since 500 B.C. because of its potential to assist the body in anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and antioxidative responses. When turmeric is paired with CBD, it targets temporary, occasional discomfort, exercise-induced inflammation and can help reduce tension.
Ashwagandha can be traced back more than 2,500 years and is a revered herb of the Indian Ayurvedic system of plant-based holistic well being. It’s an evergreen shrub grown in India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa and is classified as an “adaptogen,” meaning it can help the body manage stress. It has a wide range of impressive health benefits, including assisting with relieving stress, facilitating relaxation (which is why we included it in our Calm & Centered CBD Capsules), reducing mental blanks, and may increase energy levels.
Sea Kelp is a nutrient-rich seaweed found in coastal areas throughout the globe. Its extract is a potent powerhouse that helps deeply moisturize and hydrate the skin while leaving it feeling silky smooth and supple. It was a no-brainer to include it in our Rewind & Renew CBD Serum formulation. Sea Kelp is also a staple in many Asian cuisines since it’s a natural source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Clary Sage, also known as Salvia sclarea, is a plant native to the northern Mediterranean Basin. This herb grows up to six feet tall and has a sharp, spicy, and grassy scent, and was traditionally used to enhance the ability to dream. When it’s used in aromatherapy, it can help reduce feelings of stress and induce a sense of well-being (hello, nighttime staple!). Because of its many benefits, we knew it was perfect to include in our Drift & Dream collection to help create the perfect bedtime ritual. Clary Sage also has natural antibacterial properties and is soothing to the skin when applied topically.
Eucalyptus is a fast-growing evergreen tree native to Australia that can grow up to 50 feet in height. Its aromatic oil is extracted from the leaves of the tree. When used topically, like in our Relief & Recovery CBD Spray, it’s the perfect on-the-go pick-me-up due to its ability to help soothe tired or overworked muscles as well as being a natural antiseptic. When pressed, the leaves release flavonoids and tannins; flavonoids are plant-based antioxidants, and tannins help to reduce inflammation.
It’s easy to see why we whole-heartedly believe in the power of CBD and other plant-based ingredients. Our goal continues to be to help you do more of what you love by learning how to harness nature’s best. That’s why we want to continue to push the envelope of what we think nature is capable of by continually innovating, evolving, and exploring new ways to harness the full potential of botanical ingredients.
