|What is Industrial Hemp CBD?
Industrial Hemp is part of the hemp plant family, which has been bred to be
extremely high in CBD and low in THC. There are several variations of CBD
such as: Crystal Isolate 98.9% CBD NOTHC, Winterized, where the wax has
been removed and is a thick liquid, and Full Spectrum. Both Winterized
and Full Spectrum have 0.3% or less THC. However, you can now get Full
Spectrum without THC. CBD heals without the high and is a marvelous
alternative to prescription pain relievers.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid composite with massive
therapeutic potential. Both Marijuana and Industrial Hemp are Cannabis.
Cannabinoids are chemicals that trigger the cannabinoid receptor system in the
body. In addition to cannabinoids produced by the plant, there are endogenous
cannabinoids that occur naturally in the body, as well as synthetic cannabinoids
created by pharmaceutical researchers. CBD is the major non-psychotropic
cannabinoid found in fiber-type Hemp (in the form of its carboxylic acid CBDA), a
plant that is easily available to researchers, in contrast to the strictly controlled
drug-type Hemp varieties. THC is the psychotropic cannabionid found in
Marijuana although CBD is also present and can be extracted through different
methods of distilling. Second to THC, the pharmacological effects of CBD have
been studied more often than all the other cannabinoids. It has notable anti-
inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects. Furthermore, sedating, hypnotic,
anti-epileptic, and antidystonic effects have been described. Also, CBD is a
modulator of some types of opinoid-receptors, and can modulate sleep. CBD
has medicinal benefits without the “high”. This makes CBD appealing to patients
who are looking for an alternative to their current meds.
Skin Care and CBD: Cannabis extracts can be infused in a balm, lotion, soap,
bathbomb or ointment and applied directly to the skin. Patients report that
cannabis topicals are effective for pain, inflammation, infections, and skin
conditions. Because they are applied externally, topicals are generally not
inebriating. In addition to cannabinoids and cannabidiols (CBD), the Hemp plant
contains many other components, including vitamins, and minerals, that have a
host of health benefits. When CBD is applied topically, it is absorbed directly
through the skin. Cannabinoid receptors are located throughout the skin, the
body’s largest organ, making CBD a potential therapy for a range of conditions,
from dry skin to skin cancer. Because it is applied right to trouble areas, the CBD
works directly where needed most and isn’t absorbed into the bloodstream.
Nutrition: One of the most overlooked factors when it comes to healthy skin is
simple nutrition. Like any other part of the body, skin needs the correct vitamins
and minerals to function at its best. Along with vitamins, minerals, proteins, and
fatty acids, CBD contains a list of other essential nutrients. Vitamins C and E
help protect skin against damage from the sun as antioxidants. They also keep
free radicals from damaging collagen and elastin, which give skin its tight,
youthful appearance. B complex vitamins are part of the development of skin,
hair, and nails. Low levels of B vitamins lead to dermatitis, dander, eczema and
other skin ailments. Vitamin A and D help with healthy looking skin because they
are responsible for skin repair. All of these vitamins are important for healthy skin.
Additionally, vitamin A has been shown to promote skin cell rejuvenation, and
promote skin cell differentiation. Hemp is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty
acids that assist in regenerating skin’s protective outer layer, leaving it smoother
and younger looking. Those suffering from acne or dry skin could be lacking in
Aging: A study in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology's dated 2010, revealed
that the endocannabinoid system is critical to the life cycle of basal cells, which
make up around 90% of the cells in the epidermis. Healthy skin relies on the
body’s ability to grow new cells and discard dead ones. Manipulation of the
endocannabinoid system can help regulate the life cycle of cells for more radiant,
CBD as an antioxidant is even more powerful than Vitamin C,E, A, or omega 3
fatty acids, which as stated are present in CBD, making CBD a good source for
antioxidants. Protecting the skin from free radicals, like UV rays, smoke, and
environmental pollutants, is critical in having younger looking skin.
Free radicals in the atmosphere cause fine lines and wrinkles; antioxidants
protect our bodies from the damage of these free radicals, including fighting
the effects of aging.
Acne: Acne is frustrating, and among adults, it is surprisingly common.
Besides its natural causes, acne can also be brought on by stress, hormone
changes, changes in medication, and even in the skin care products you are
using. Acne involves the overproduction of sebum, an oily substance intended to
protect the skin. Glands in our skin, typically near hair follicles, called sebaceous
glands produce fatty oils called lipids. These lipids perform a number of functions,
such as creating a barrier on our skin to keep out bacteria and viruses and
work to lubricate and waterproof the hair and skin. Sebaceous glands and hair
follicles both contain endocannabinoid receptors, meaning their functions are
affected by cannabinoids. Lipid production plays a critical role in both acne (over
production) and eczema (under production) of oils. In acne, oil (along with dirt,
dead skin cells, and bacteria) clog pores, causing an inflamed blemish on the
skin. Studies reported in both the Journal of Clinical Investigation and the
National Institute of Health, stated that CBD can provide treatment for acne. The
research study used cannabis-derived cannabidiol on the human subjects
sebaceous glands and conclude that CBD inhibits lipid synthesis therefore
becoming highly effective as a sebostatic and anti-inflammatory agent. CBD
can be used to affect the output of oils in the skin and hair. Specifically, CBD
inhibits the lipid production in skin cells, making it an effective preventative for
acne. However, manipulating this system can also be used to increase output of
sebum as well to prevent dry skin issues.
The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can also control the other effects of
acne because the skin around the infected area is inflamed. Pimples are
effectively infections, and it is best to treat them as such. CBD can act as an
antibacterial agent, decreasing acne outbreaks in the future.
Skin Conditions: Although CBD shows effectiveness in beauty products, such as
anti-aging and acne relief, the elements in CBD hold promise in the treatment
of a number of more severe skin conditions as well. One study in the British
Journal of Pharmacology found that phytocannabinoids, particularly CBD and
cannabigerol (CBG), can control cell proliferation and differentiation, indicating
they can be used in novel treatments for skin diseases like allergies or cancer.
CBD oil works on warts, moles, and even HPV outbreaks because it can cause
cell death in these abnormally growing cell groups, but clinical research in this
area is scant.
Cannabinoids have been shown to be particularly effective in controlling potential
skin cancers like melanoma. Through its ability to control cell growth and death,
CBD has been considered as a potential adjunct to current skin cancer treatments.

|The Hemp Farming Act of 2018
The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 was a proposed law to
remove hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3%
THC) from Schedule I controlled substances and making it
an ordinary agricultural commodity. Its provisions were
incorporated in the 2018 United States farm bill that
became law on December 20, 2018.
