CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. Unlike THC (the active cannabinoid in marijuana), CBD is not intoxicating which means it will not get you high. CBD interacts with a series of receptors in your body known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS relates to a number of important systems in your body and helps keep your internal rhythms in optimal balance.
CBD is a multi-functional ingredient. For our body products, we focus on CBD’s anti-inflammatory, muscle soothing and pain reducing benefits. For face care, we focus on CBD’s antioxidant, nutritive, anti-inflammatory and skin balancing properties and we create formulations using freshly extracted herbs that magnify these benefits.
CBD works because we have an endocannabinoid system in our bodies. This endocannabinoid system is responsible for our homeostasis and is involved in regulating things such as appetite, pain sensation, memory and mood. There are actually receptors all over our body in our brain, stomach, nervous system, and organs that have cell receptors for the ‘cannabinoids’. By using CBD infused supplements, we can help jump start this system to help with pain, inflammation, stress and sleep.
Our hemp is grown and harvested organically right here in the USA. At LeafLife, we use solvent-free CO2 extraction. In other words, we use the CO2 from the air we breathe in a low-temperature, high pressure setting to extract the beneficial molecules.
Hemp is a nutrient-dense plant that’s used across the globe as food, fiber, supplements and medicine. Hemp stalk and seeds contain terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, chlorophyll and amino acids and its flowers contain phytocannabinoids like CBD.
Fantastic question! To put it simply, cannabinoids promote balance and overall wellness by moderating the communication between the cells of our bodies. There are two types of cannabinoids: endocannabinoids, which our body naturally creates and phytocannabinoids, which are derived from cannabis and hemp.
The array of cannabinoids and other natural constituents found in full-spectrum hemp oil have been shown in studies to work together to magnify their therapeutic properties (this is often referred to as the “entourage effect”) The complex mix of cannabinoids, essential nutrients, protein, and healthy fats work synergistically to encourage homeostasis and balance in our health.
Our hemp extract is naturally rich in Cannabidiol (CBD), and also contains Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabichromene (CBC), as well as terpenes, flavonoids, and essential amino acids. We make sure there is no, or less than .03% THC in all products.
Yes! We believe that the diverse cannabinoid profile that naturally develops in hemp and cannabis plants offers the most therapeutic benefits.
Inflammation is the culprit for many skin issues. Studies show CBD to have anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, which is great for the skin, joints and muscles. Our full-spectrum CBD oil is also naturally filled with vitamins A, D, and E and contains high levels of essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6), which all work to enhance skin health and overall youthfulness.
First thing to know is the difference: dry skin is a lack of oil, whereas dehydrated skin is a lack of water. This is the reason why oily skin types can be dehydrated.
Dry or dehydrated skin can both feel tight and appear flaky or rough, with fine lines, and pronounced wrinkles. However, dry or dehydrated skin is not always visible. Even without visible dry patches, your skin could be dry or dehydrated underneath and in need of additional hydration.
For best shelf life, please keep your CBD oil in a cool, dry area out of the direct sunlight. Doing so will help preserve the hemp extract (you can even keep it in the refrigerator!) for as long as possible. If stored properly, CBD oil can have a shelf life of a year or longer.
For orders in the US your order should arrive in approximately 7-10 business days from the date of purchase.
