Understanding CBD

What is CBD?

CBD is short for Cannabidiol. It is one of the two most prevalent cannabinoids found from the 160 active cannabinoids found in the Cannabaceae plant family . CBD is found in the hemp plant which belongs to the same species as the marijuana plant. But unlike the THC compound from marijuana, consumption of CBD doesn’t alter state of mind (feeling “high”). According to a recent study, CBD is well tolerated in humans and offers a new approach in therapeutics.

What is Beta Caryophyllene (BCP) and How is it like CBD?

Terpenes are molecules that are produced by trichomes, the mushroom-shaped glands found on the surface of leaves and flowers of plants. Beta-Caryophyllene is one such terpene. BCP is found in Cannabis and many plants like black pepper and rosemary, and cloves. It has healing properties similar to CBD and is considered a terpene that acts like a cannabinoid.

Chemical compounds like CBD and BCP target the CB2 receptor of the endocannabinoid system which makes them useful in treating anxiety and depression. However, innovations have been made to borrow the anti-inflammatory benefits of BCP and CBD in skincare products.

Benefits of CBD and BCP in Skin Care

Our endocannabinoid system helps regulate various physiological and mental functions in our body. Two main cannabinoid receptors make this happen: The CB1 and CB2 receptors.

Experts say Beta-caryophyllene (BCP) and CBD act as a dietary cannabinoid because it binds to CB2 receptors to help provide therapeutic benefits for conditions like inflammation, pain, and osteoporosis. Beta-Caryophyllene and CBD have Antibacterial & Antimicrobial Properties. They are found to be effective on acne and pimples and provide clear skin and anti aging solutions. Naturemary harnesses the power of CBD and BCP in their formulations that are suitable for all skin types.
