What is CBD?

CBD is an active compound of the hemp and cannabis plants. Namely, Cannabis sativa L, which is refined using hemp plants with no psychoactive effects; hence fully legal and safe. At Siempre Viva, we source only the highest quality Co2, extracted from California. Ensuring optimum purity, free from pesticides, metallics and THC free.

CBD stands for cannabidiol, the non-intoxication component of the marijuana or hemp plants. CBD is extracted as a powder and commonly mixed with an oil such as olive, hemp or coconut which all enhance application and effectiveness. 

Will I Get High?

CBD on the skin won’t get you high. It doesn’t have any mind-altering properties of marijuana’s tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. It is extracted from the flowers, leaves, stalks or stems of the hemp plant.

It is also important to know that CBD products are not the same as Hemp Seed Products. Whilst hemp seed is another great ingredient for the skin, CBD is richly concentrated in cannabidiol. Whereas hemp only contains small traces of this, if any.

So, Why Add CBD Products to Your Skincare?

Many skin conditions derive from inflammation which is one of the key benefits of CBD. The great anti-inflammatory properties can help to soothe skin and reduce redness.

Acne / Oily Skin

For acne sufferers, many have already found the benefits of CBD. Since it can not only reduce inflammation and redness, but also stop or slow down overactive oil production.

Dry Skin

CBD is amazing for dry skin. It can help to retain moisture and encourage cells to repair (making it perfect for all skin types). 

Ageing Skin
