Cannabinoids and you
Whether applied or consumed, cannabinoids have transformative potential for your skin, body and well-being on a cellular level.
Cannabinoids and your endocannabinoid system
Cannabinoids work in natural symbiosis with our bodies by directly engaging our endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a complex signalling system that helps regulate numerous physiological processes, including immune response, mood, memory, sleep, pain, and motor function - which explains why cannabinoids have such a wide range of effects on our well-being.
When your ECS is regulated, it operates efficiently and maintains your body’s balance. And when your body is balanced — you function better.
Cannabinoids and your skin
Cannabinoids can address a range of skincare concerns thanks to their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Their skin-soothing benefits makes them well-suited for many skin types (including sensitive skin) and compatible with other active ingredients.
Their ability to protect skin against environmental stressors, including blemish-causing bacteria and UV exposure means that they can also prevent skin barrier damage associated with accelerating signs of aging. They are powerhouse ingredients that can complement any skincare routine.
Cannabinoids and your wellbeing
Research links cannabinoids with vital aspects of health and happiness. Cannabinoids can calm the mind, improve moods, relieve pain, aid sleep, and reduce inflammation.
Science shows that when cannabinoids engage your endocannabinoid system (ECS), they prevent endocannabinoid enzymes from deteriorating, helping your system’s key functions run smoothly. This in turn helps you feel more like ‘you’ — the version of yourself that’s operating on all cylinders.
