Rejuvenate, Repair and Revitalize Your Skin with Cannabidiol (CBD)
Healthy skin is beautiful skin. Not only will good skin health effect the look and feel of your skin, it also plays an important role in your overall health and well-being.
The skin is the body’s largest organ and is both the source and target of several hormones, has its own immune system, and is our largest sensory organ. Though we may not think much about our skin as it pertains to overall well-being, the skin is highly active in supporting and maintaining good health.
Your skin produces cannabinoids.
The basis behind all cannabinoid therapy is that your body, including your skin, actually produces cannabinoid molecules called endocannabinoids.
These endocannabinoids include 2-AG and Anandamide. When the endocannabinoid system is balanced and operating without deficiency these endocannabinoids are released in specific amounts depending upon the organ’s needs. This creates what is known as the “endocannabinoid tone”. When the endocannabinoid system is operating effectively, and the endocannabinoid tone is healthy, these cannabinoids interact with the epidermis, immune cells, sebaceous glands, sweat glands, hair follicles, and sensory nerves to create skin that is both healthy and vibrant with the ability to defend against various skin conditions, inflammation and disease.
Strengthening your skin’s ability to heal itself using phyto-cannabinoids.
Once you understand the endocannabinoid system as it pertains to skin health, you’re ready to explore the wonderful world of phyto-cannabinoids and how they can be used to boost the endocannabinoid system and help the body to do what it does best – heal itself.
Phyto-cannabinoids, such as CBD, are cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant. Research studies show that phyto-cannabinoids interact with the same receptors (CB1, CB2) as your bodies endocannabinoids. The interaction of plant-based cannabinoids (phyto-cannabinoids) to boost the human endocannabinoid system is the basis for cannabis as medicine and the reason such a wide variety of medical conditions can be treated using cannabinoids.
