What is Industrial Hemp CBD?
Industrial Hemp is a hybrid hemp plant, which has been bred to be
extremely high in CBD and low in THC. Crystal Isolate is 99.9% CBD NO
THC same as Full Spectrum where the THC has been removed. Winterized
and regular Full Spectrum has trace amounts of THC, usually no more than
5%. However, research studies have shown that the THC molecule when
used in a topical product does not penetrate the blood stream. 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     
Omega-3 fatty.

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,
youthful skin.

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.
