CBD, Cannabinoids for Healthy + Luminous Skin

CBD and its therapeutic advantages are most often associated with pain relief, anxiety reduction, and promoting deep sleep– though I have found by experimenting with our topical balm REVERENCE, the benefits of full-spectrum hemp oil (CBD) for the skin are immense. I have personally experienced an improvement in luminosity and the effects extend to the prevention of abnormal cell growth, healing rashes and acne. Hemp has been proven to be anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant (combat damage+aging) and beyond.  

THE PROBLEM: MODERN DAY SKIN CONCERNS + PRODUCTS

Commercial, manufactured and large-scale skincare products and lotions are composed of lots of water, oils (synthetic, rancid and petroleum-derived_, chemical emulsifiers, humectants, fragrances, preservatives, colorants)  all of which can be toxic and harm the skin’s innate processes for healthfulness.

So, what is the EndoCannabinoid System?

Each animal and insect has an EndoCannabinoid System, what research has found to be the master regulator and “conductor” of all other systems– it is known for managing homeostasis, regulating mood,supporting the immune system and protecting cell health. 

The EndoCannabinoid system is a network of cell receptors that respond to cannabinoid compounds- the neurotransmitters allowing this system to function healthfully are produced naturally by the body {endocannabinoids} but can also be activated by phytocannabinoids from plants {namely cannabis}. Though the diminishing of these nuerotransmitters {anandamide} from chronic stress and toxins to can cause a weakened endocannabinoid system, hence the need for supplementation.

THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM + YOUR SKIN

First, let’s dive into the science based evidence about CBD + your largest organ…

“Although the best studied functions over the ECS are related to the central nervous system and to immune processes, experimental efforts over the last two decades have unambiguously confirmed that cutaneous cannabinoid signaling is deeply involved in the maintenance of skin homeostasis, barrier formation and regeneration, and its dysregulation was implicated to contribute to several highly prevalent diseases and disorders, e.g., atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, scleroderma, acne, hair growth and pigmentation disorders, keratin diseases, various tumors, and itch.” 

And 

Based on their preclinical findings, the report suggests that pharmacological intervention to delay the breakdown (and thereby prolong the action) of endogenous cannabinoid compounds, which activate CB1 and CB2, could be a viable strategy for treating skin disease.”- NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE

 

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, THE BENEFITS OF CBD FOR YOUR SKIN

For the last couple of years I have been experimenting with CBD on my own skin and also helping so many of my friends along the way. From hyper pigmentation, pain, psoriasis, infections, sebaceous cysts, bug bites, acne– we have seen REVERENCE dramatically speed healing processes and aid in long-term struggles with skin issues.

This inspired me to create a new FACIAL + BODY OIL: BEING, intended to be a daily ritual for self nourishment BUT TO reduce abnormal cell growth and improve skin health overall. As our exposure to environmental toxins and chronic stress is ever increasing, self-care and prevention is paramount.

 BEING results have spoken for themselves– and as always at FE we see the significant benefits of fresh, organic, and pure ingredients.
