CBD brings a vast amount of benefits to skincare thanks to its anti-ageing, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Our bodies have a natural endocannabinoid system comprised of cannabinoids (neurotransmitters that carry communications cells) and receptors (the part of a cell that receives those communications). This system helps maintain a state of homeostasis, or general wellbeing where everything is functioning as it should. When something is going wrong, cannabinoids are released to rush in and calm the tissues down and bring them back to a natural healthy resting state.
