CBD is the term used for Cannabidiol which is one of the main ingredients found naturally in the cannabis, or hemp plant. Even though it comes from hemp plants, CBD doesn’t make you “high” or intoxicated because it doesn’t contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is the element which can alter your mind.
CBD products have fast been growing in popularity and are used across the world for their seemingly endless and diverse medical and cosmetic benefits. West End Hemp is unique because we know which products actually work and can offer you the most benefits, as they have all been personally tested.
Here are just a few of the most significant benefits that our premium products can offer you…
CBD cosmetics could give you amazing skin. CBD is thought to offer excellent benefits for a number of skin issues and is widely used to help alleviate acne, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and offer excellent moisturisation to combat dry skin and reduce redness.
One of the reasons CBD is used in skincare is because it is considered to be an anti-inflammatory which can help soothe and calm breakouts, acne, redness and sensitive skin. It’s high levels of antioxidants, coming directly from the plant it derives from, can help to lessen signs of aging and give you a brighter and more luminous complexion.
Numerous studies have shown CBD is an excellent stress reliever. CBD is 100% non-psychoactive and non-addictive and can in fact offer many benefits for your brain. Studies have indicated CBD can interact with the receptors in the brain to bring waves of relaxation - combating stress, improving sleep and can be used as a supplement to reduce anxiety.
CBD has been reported to help with pain relief. Long sufferers of arthritis and other conditions causing pain have often touted the benefits of using CBD. Marijuana has long been known to offer pain relief, and can be prescribed by a medical practitioner, but it is thought that CBD (present in marijuana) can also bring many of the same benefits, without causing a 'high' and being completely legal and safe. The high levels of antioxidants found in CBD can reduce inflammation which in turn may loosen joints and improve pain and stiffness associated with many conditions. Not only this, but its link to receptors in the brain is thought to suppress pain perception.
