Best Buds

Our premium CBD Oil is grown in the U.S. by one of the first farms certified by the FDA. With the in-depth testing, quality control, and the highest standards, our CBD is formulated without THC, fillers, synthetics, or toxic chemicals. We use premium-grade, broad-spectrum CBD, and 100% pure CBD isolate for products that offer the full power of Cannabis.

That Good, Good Skincare

CBD is a powerful ingredient that not only confronts the three leading causes of aging but works together flawlessly with all of our proprietary plant extracts and high-performance formulas. CBD amplifies the natural, non-irritating effects and delivery of our products to ease, enhance, hydrate, and protect all skin types and concerns.

We strive to create hard-working solutions that nurture the skin while addressing concerns like acne, sensitivity, and puffiness, inflammation, and skin tone and texture for skin that looks healthier, dreamier, and noticeably smoother and hydrated.

INFLAMMATION

Inflammation is a natural response to allergies, infections, or injuries. When it’s chronic, the immune system can start attacking itself, which can result in a wide range of skin issues like premature aging, dermatitis, psoriasis, or eczema, to name a few. CBD is a powerhouse against inflammation because it helps to unlock the skin’s ability to chill TF out and reduce redness, pain, and swelling to defend skin against inflammation.

FREE RADICAL DAMAGE

Our luxury CBD skincare can limit free radical damage with age-defying antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E. They help neutralize free radicals while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Regenerative CBD can offset damage from the sun, pollution, and aging while increasing the skin’s ability to protect itself while supporting cell renewal with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

DEHYDRATION

Topically, using clean, non-drying, and nourishing ingredients, as well as incorporating nutrient-rich ingredients like fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, are great ways to work with dehydrated or dry skin to keep it moist and supple. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD within our natural formulas can stimulate healing in damaged skin due to dryness and help prevent water loss.

Acne

Acne can occur when excess oil production, dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria build-up to clog pores. CBD, rose-based ingredients, and other plant extracts work to block the over-production of oil to help keep skin balanced and prevent future breakouts. With its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD calms and soothes painful swelling and redness for clearer-looking skin.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin disease whose characteristics can appear as broken blood vessels, inflammation, or irritated, bumpy skin throughout the forehead, cheek, chin, and nose areas of the face. Rosacea can be aggravated by toxic chemicals and irritating products that contain alcohol or synthetic fragrance. CBD’s anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and redness-reducing capabilities can work their magic on this chronic skin disease.

Eczema

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a skin disorder that causes intense dry, cracked, sore, and inflamed skin. Skin can feel itchy, experience redness and small, pimple-like bumps on affected areas. Studies have shown that CBD can offset the symptoms of eczema with its anti-inflammatory properties that reduce itching, eczema-causing bacteria, and dry skin.

CBD, Yeah, You Know Me!

CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the many cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant. Unlike THC (the psychoactive stuff that gets people high and also found in the plant), CBD is non-intoxicating. When you extract 100% pure CBD, it’s known as an isolate. CBD isolate has all of the medicinal effects of CBD but doesn’t include any of the other compounds from the Cannabis plant. When you extract everything from the whole plant (except for the THC in our case), it’s known as whole-plant medicine and considered broad-spectrum CBD oil.

Whole-plant, broad-spectrum CBD oil contains pure CBD and high amounts of compounds such as phytocannabinoids like CBD, cannabinoids, terpenoids, flavonoids, and fatty acids which increase the body’s ability for absorption. All of these compounds, working together, is called the entourage effect.

The entourage effect helps to activate our body’s very own cannabinoid receptors like CB1 and CB2 to modify our skin’s cells to maintain healthy functioning and homeostasis by reducing inflammation in the skin. Yes! The body produces cannabinoids in what is known as our endocannabinoid system. One of the most significant cannabinoids we produce is called anandamide (a-NAN-da-mide).

Anandamide helps power our endocannabinoid system and changes our cells to help maintain homeostasis. When anandamide is created within the body, it binds with our CB1 and CB2 receptors to signal neurons and regulate inflammation. This process influences pain management, inflammation regulation, and could inhibit the production of excess skin cells in conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Anandamide breaks down in the body quickly, so introducing CBD helps to increase it. The root word of anandamide, “Ananda” is roughly translated from the Sanskrit word “bliss” or “joy.” So, basically, CBD helps to boost your bliss molecules!
