Naturally Occurring Vitamins and Fatty Acids

Cannabinoids, like CBD, work with the body’s endocannabinoid system or ECS to maintain homeostasis or balance. As the body’s largest organ, the skin is an effective vehicle for CBD oil topicals.

Naturally occurring essential vitamins and fatty acids make Hemp CBD oil the ideal addition to beauty products. Let’s take a look at what they are and what they do.

Vitamin A:  A powerful antioxidant, it helps protect cells from the damage of free radicals. Vitamin A stimulates the cells responsible for producing the tissue that keeps skin firm and supple.

Vitamin C: An important antioxidant, it helps in the formation of collagen and supports the immune system. Vitamin C stimulates collagen production and helps to reduce signs of aging.

Vitamin E: Essential Vitamin E blocks free radicals and helps slow down the aging process, by preventing oxidation, that leads to loss of elasticity, wrinkles and fine lines. 

Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty Acids: These fatty acids are the building blocks of your skin on a cellular level. They help hydrate the skin and reduce inflammation. Omega 3 fatty acids are found in popular over the counter supplements like Fish Oil or Flax Seed Oil. 

CBD and Skin Conditions

Acne

Hemp CBD oil is an effective option for breakout-prone complexions. Because acne is an inflammatory condition related to sebaceous-gland oil production, promising new research finds that cannabinoids can help reduce the production of sebum, which means CBD oil could become a future option for acne, particularly acne vulgaris, the most common form of acne associated with overproduction of sebum.

The anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of CBD topicals might also help relieve symptoms associated with common skin related issues. Dr. Jacknin, board-certified dermatologist in Solana Beach, California, specializing in CBD skin care, refers to recent preliminary research presented in June 2019 at the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, which found topical CBD may help kill a range of gram-positive bacteria. She stated that, “This bacteria is one cause of acne and according to research CBD also influences sebum production and has an anti-inflammatory effect. All good news for acne sufferers. Another study showed that the anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of CBD topicals might also help relieve symptoms associated with common skin related issues.

 

Eczema and Psoriasis

One of the most well-known functions of CBD is controlling inflammation. “The body has two CBD receptors (that we know of): CB1 and CB2,” says Robert Dellavalle, MD, PhD, adjunct professor of epidemiology at the Colorado School of Public Health in Aurora. When applied to skin, CBD interacts with these receptors to turn down the inflammatory response. This happens by “decreasing the interleukins, which are chemicals that are like the immune system’s fire alarm that calls the fire department in an emergency. CBD may decrease the loudness of that fire alarm,” he explains.

In effect, you may see less overall redness in skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis. It also may be beneficial for reducing itchy skin, possibly because CBD topicals may help reduce dryness, according to a review published in July 2017 in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology

Another study published in the Clinical Therapeutics journal in March 2019 looked at psoriasis, eczema, and scarring in 20 individuals and found that a CBD cream moisturized and prevented water loss, increased elasticity in the skin, and in general bettered their quality of life. Likely due to the enriching omega and other fatty acids and partly because of the anti-inflammatory effect of CBD, the researchers said. Remember this was a small study and further research is needed to understand exactly how the body interacts with cannabidiol. 

The report concluded that the topical administration of CBD ointment, without 

any THC, is a safe and effective non-invasive alternative to improve the quality of life in individuals with some skin disorders, especially inflammatory conditions.

According Dr. Dellavalle, while CBD may “have shown some initial promise as therapy for a variety of skin diseases,” what we need are large, high-quality randomized trials.

In an article from June 2019 in Dermatology Times, Dr. Alster, a clinical professor of dermatology at Georgetown University Medical Center says, “It’s true, CBD has gone mainstream and is now frequently referred to as a ‘cure-all’ by scientists, doctors and users alike — all because of numerous health challenges that are showing very positive improvements,” She goes on to say, that CBD oil has an anti-inflammatory property, which can benefit skin, and it can also reduce oil production, provide moisture and relieve pain and itching.

According to Dr. Alster, “topical CBD is safe and works effectively for all skin types. The products are easy to administer. Sufferers of serious medical skin conditions and those who are seeking innovative skincare options can benefit from topical CBD use,” Dr. Alster says. “Anti-inflammatory properties associated with CBD are beneficial in treating such dermatologic conditions as acne, psoriasis and eczema due to reduction of dryness, irritation and redness. CBD-containing creams, oils, gels and serums not only moisturize and soothe the skin but are also showing encouraging results in relieving pain caused by certain skin disorders.”

CBD has been shown to provide antioxidant activity that repairs skin from free radicals, which may help to smooth wrinkles and reduce breakouts and blemishes, according to Dr. Alster.

Dr. Alster believes further research of CBD is vital and is fortunately being tested in numerous laboratories around the world for its health-enhancing properties and the benefits it may provide to millions of people affected by various diseases and conditions.

Important Laboratory Testing

With all the excitement of the many potential benefits of CBD hemp oil, many people are getting on the band wagon and trying to cash in on uneducated consumers. If it’s worth spending money on then it’s worth spending the time to educate yourself. High quality CBD oil is not inexpensive so make sure you get what you pay for.

Always, always look for the Certificate of Analysis (COA). The COA is documentation that contains important information regarding the potency and purity of the CBD. It is a requirement for legitimate CBD hemp oil sellers and a must for protecting the consumer. Don’t be fooled by products that just say they contain CBD, ask for the COA. 

The Certificate of Analysis contains vital information about the percentage of each cannabinoid present and ensures that it is free of contaminants and safe for consumption. This is what you should look for the next time you shop for CBD oil:

Cannabinoid Profile and Potency

Performed by an unaffiliated third-party laboratory to determine each cannabinoid present and the percentage of each. More than 100 different cannabinoids exist in the hemp plant. Our Cannabinoid Potency method analyzes 15 of those cannabinoids, providing you with a true, full spectrum profile of your hemp-derived product. Potency testing is done on Agilent HPLC-DAD instruments using validated methods and in a laboratory with a framework in line with FDA-compliant Pharma practices.

Nearly all hemp-derived CBD oil products will state how many milligrams of CBD per serving the product contains, though many won’t necessarily include verified lab testing results. For those interested in beginning a CBD supplement regimen, 25-50 milligrams of CBD per day is often recommended as a starting dose and it’s always best if the product has verifications from an independent lab.

Pesticides and Heavy Metals

Industrial hemp can be successfully grown without pesticides however sometimes other chemicals used in cultivating crops can be used. Fertilizers, pest sprays and nuisance plant eradicators are used by some farmers and you have to make sure that residues of insecticide, weed killers, fungicides and other chemicals are not present in the CBD oil that you buy. 

Terpenes

Terpenes are non-cannabinoid compounds found in plant oils that contribute to varying aromas and flavors.  Like cannabinoids, having a range of these compounds can be beneficial in different ways, influencing both pharmacological effects and aroma. Higher percentages of terpenes are usually found in full-spectrum or broad-spectrum oils but are not present in isolates.

Solvents

Solvents are utilized in the extraction process of CBD oil and often leaves minute traces behind in the final product. Solvent less extraction methods, like CO2, leaves less residue but all must undergo this crucial test.

All TerraVida Online CBD hemp oil is 3rd Party Lab-tested for purity and quality and made from Non-GMO industrial hemp, always with less than 0.3% THC or Zero THC.
