CBD 101

WHY CBD?

Unless you live under a rock (mamas, we know that you definitely do not!) you’ve been hearing the term CDB a lot lately. CBD products are making their way into the mainstream, even showing up at your local market. But what’s the deal with this stuff? We're here to break it down for you...

CBD is short for cannabidiol, one of the many chemical compounds found in marijuana and hemp. We know you’ve heard of those two things before (wink, wink). It’s important to know off the bat that CBD is unlike its wild and crazy cousin, THC. That’s another compound found in the cannabis plant and that’s the stuff that gets you high. CBD however, is non-psychoactive so it will not get you high and is not addictive. Here are just a few things CBD can help with:


"Stress - Sleep - Anxiety - Sex - Pain - Inflammation - Depression"


Sounds good, right? We could all use better sleep and maybe a little mojo booster every now and again—hello, tired mamas! But get this, and here’s where you should pay attention: CBD can specifically help women. In the last decade, incredible research has unlocked the promise of CBD. Studies show CBD promotes relaxation, restfulness and can also alleviate a number of issues that disproportionately affect women like anxiety, stress, mood swings, low energy and menstrual cramps. How does it work? CBD is vital to supporting our endocannabinoid system (ECS), an important biological system that stimulates cannabinoid receptors which exist throughout our body and supports our immune system, central nervous system, digestive system, and more. CBD does not produce the “high” that’s usually associated with cannabis but instead provides relief and a sense of calm. 

 

CBD + BEAUTY 

Because CBD is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound, natural beauty and skin care products are popping up everywhere. This natural compound is in everything from lip balms to bath salts to lotions. CBD is a rich source of fatty acids and other nutrients that benefit your skin. Studies have shown it can reduced barrier function, improve hydration, minimize moisture loss, and decrease inflammation resulting in younger looking skin. Our curated selection of skincare products aim to do just that. 

 

CBD + ROMANCE

Ladies, did you know there’s a connection between cannabis and sensuality? CBD and sex are a match made in heaven. We’ve all been there. Too tired, emails to answer, headache, kids need you, kids are in bed with you. The reasons not to be intimate pile on. But we all know that connecting with your partner is incredibly important. Studies show that using CBD as a lubricant decreases inflammation and increases serotonin levels, helping the body to feel more pleasure when climax is reached. We've hand picked are a few sexual wellness products to help get you in the mood, help reduce pain and increase pleasure.

 

CBD + METABOLISM

Cannabidiol is able to provide balance to our endocrine system and the pineal gland (known as the third eye that produces and releases melatonin) that regulates our circadian rhythms including metabolic processes. CBD helps metabolize compounds absorbed from food during digestion. In other words, CBD may actually aid in the burning of calories and we're not going to complain about it. 

  

CBD + LIFESTYLE

The best part about CBD products is you can easily integrate them into your lifestyle. Whether it's a tincture in the morning under your tongue or in your coffee, a dab of perfume on your wrists before a night out or incorporating the benefits of CBD into your nightly skincare regime, we have many wonderful products to help you glow from the inside out!
