The magic wand called HEMP

What is CBD?

CBD is an increasingly popular natural alternative for relieving a number of physical and mental health problems. However, there is a lot of confusion regarding CBD – it is said to have side effects and the power to alter the state of consciousness, like marijuana. The hemp plant contains more than 100 natural substances known as cannabinoids, including CBD. CBD is not psychoactive and is not classified as a narcotic, it is valued for its medicinal and therapeutic effects. Some cannabinoids, like THC for example, are illegal in many countries and are mainly used for recreational purposes.

CBD affects each person differently

CBD detects health problems in the body and resolves them through the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a biological system similar to the immune system. It controls many vital processes, such as the nervous system and metabolism. Unlike medicine, where one exact medication is made for a specific health problem, the endocannabinoid system works like the immune system, finding the problem that needs treatment and trying to “repair” it with the body’s own resources. Scientific studies have demonstrated the benefits of CBD on a variety of conditions, including inflammation, sleep disorders, anxiety, joint issues, seizures, and weight problems. The list is long and keeps expanding with new studies.

An external magic wand to treat skin issues

Skin is the largest organ in the human body and a part of the endocannabinoid system. Thousands of tiny receptors in the skin can bind to CBD and respond to its therapeutic properties, just like the receptors in the brain or digestive system. Cosmetics containing CBD will target the most prominent skin issue and encourage the production of new, healthy skin cells to address the problem. CBD skincare products have helped many, whether they were suffering from acne, pigment spots, scars, or micro-tears from dryness.

LUMI`s hemp seed oil products have similar results. The cold-pressed hemp seed oil has the ideal ratio of omega fatty acids, several vitamins, phytosterols, chlorophyll, and antioxidants. Working with local Estonian organic hemp farmers means that LUMI uses the highest quality of active substances. We make LUMI creams right after the oil is extracted from the seeds – it ensures that the products are as fresh and effective as possible.

Hemp oil relieves a variety of skin problems, especially those related to excessive dryness and microbiome imbalance – such as dermatitis or acne. LUMI has a CBD+ product line for inflamed skin. We use the highest quality full-spectrum CBD extract. It is anti-inflammatory, helps with itching immediately, soothes and stimulates skin renewal. CBD extract delivers remarkable results because it is natural to the human organism and the body accepts it well. The high-quality active ingredients in CBD+ products prevent early ageing symptoms like wrinkles, dull complexion, and rough, dry skin.
