What to know about Hemp cream?
Hemp creams are beauty products derived from hemp oil or hemp extract. The cream can be used both for beauty and pain relief purposes. The high concentration of amino acids is good for reducing wrinkles and creating a “de-aging” effect, and also for reducing skin irritation.
Is hemp cream the same as CBD cream?
Yes and No. As we covered earlier, Hemp has a very high concentration of CBD but a CBD cream is as it sounds. A cream with just CBD added to it. And who knows maybe 1% CBD, maybe more, maybe less.
Either way, the other components in the Hemp plant are also desired as they do have healing benefits and may even magnify and support the healing power of CBD when it is in its natural organic state (Hemp Extract).
The more important question you should Ask and Why...
Is your Hemp extract Full spectrum or isolates?
The most basic form of CBD is an isolate. This is nothing but pure isolated CBD. Sounds great at first right??? I mean if you want "just" CBD isn't that what you should go for? Well actually to answer this, you need to understand the rigorous and rather destructive behavior involved with extracting CBD out of hemp. The process requires the use of some very harsh chemicals such as turpentine and depending on where it comes from who knows. Basically a very un-natural and un-organic state the plant has to endure, and to make matters worse some of these harsh chemicals get left with the CBD and applied topically your porous skin absorbs and your left with the side effects.
In contrast to isolates, full-spectrum CBD products contain a full range of cannabinoids and other elements in the Hemp plant. When the cannabinoids are extracted from hemp, the entire extract is made into a consumable product, meaning that you are getting a healthy dose of all the elements from the plant.
No added artificial chemicals need to be used in this process.
"Laguna Breeze" opts to keep all our extracts as close to natural as possible, using only full spectrum.
