Cannabis Skincare: Call 411 not 911!
First, yes, Cannabis is:
- Mary Jane
Ok, now can we all just calm down! No need to call 911!
Come in, sit down, grab a coffee and let me drop some knowledge! I promise, after you get some basics down, you’re going to look up from your phone or computer and ask yourself why you aren’t using this stuff right now!
First, there’s no Cannabis in any skincare or bodycare products. Everyone knows about the “high” that is produced from Cannabis - that “high” comes from THC that’s in Cannabis. What many people don’t know is that there’s also another element in Cannabis called CBD!
I know what you’re all thinking - because I was thinking it too!
Will I get “high” if I use skincare or body care products with CBD in them?
I’ll say it loud for the people in the cheap seats….
“Y’all ain’t gettin' high from CBD!”
Now, say it outloud with me. “I’m not going to get high from CBD!”
Let’s Go To Science School
Ok, now that that’s out of the way, we can discuss the wonders of CBD oil! We met one of the most knowledgeable men in Las Vegas at the IECSC. Jenni and I talked to him forever and asked him so many questions. Jenni asked, “What exactly is CBD Oil?” Konstantin Malygin, COO of RX Canna Care explained, “CBD oil is actually Cannabidiol, the most prevalent chemical compound found in the Cannabis plant.”
I jumped in and asked, “How does CBD oil impact the body?” Konstantin then told me, “Cannabinoids are the natural chemicals produced by the body that interact with the Endocannabinoid system and found in the cannabis sativa plant. The 2 main functions of CBD are to regulate nutrient transportation and the metabolic rate. The Endocannabinoid system has 2 main receptors the first is found throughout the body, the second is in the brain and immune system; both play a role in helping the body function. CB1 receptor is in the Central Nervous system and immune system, where the CB2 is found in the peripheral nervous system found throughout the surface layers of the skin. CBD helps those sites to work at optimal capacity."
There are 4 main purposes of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS):
Neuro-Protection, Stress Recovery, Immune Balance, and Homeostasis Regulation - (creating “balance in the body”).
It took me awhile to absorb all of that, but when it all sunk in, I just looked at Konstantin and asked……
“So, it’s like CBD, just helps the skin and body to function at optimal levels.” He gave me a gold star for getting it right!
Now let’s talk about stem cells, retinols, jojoba oil and hyaluronic acid! These are some of the usual suspects in a high quality anti-aging skincare line. I asked Twompson Prater, CEO of RX Canna Care, what sets CBD skincare apart from other brands with the same usual suspects.
“CBD enhances the beneficial properties of the ingredients already in the product, it enhances the nutrient transportation and metabolic rate connection.” explains Twompson.
Listen to Twompson explain it all:
RX Canna Care gave us a collection of products to try and we’ve had a blast. They have a complete am/pm skincare program that I’ve been loving. It’s aloe based and infused with their whole flower isolate CBD oil.
Question: Whole Flower Isolate?
Answer: Think Vitamin C in a serum versus Vitamin C in an orange. The Whole Flower Isolate is the CBD that’s extracted from whole flower CBD, not sticks and stems and seeds.
I’ve been loving these:

Jenni’s also jumped on the CBD band wagon! Her 4 yr old son Jack has eczema, she’s tried everything on him and nothing’s really helped...until she tried the Canna Cream with CBD Oil. I remember one of our morning calls when she said, “Barry this Canna Cream is LEGIT! I’ve been putting it on Jack’s eczema and it’s totally clearing it up!”
