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 because the substance is said to have side effects and power to alter state of consciousness similar to marijuana. The hemp plant really contains more than 100 different natural substances known as cannabinoids, including CBD. Unlike other cannabinoids like THC, CBD does not have a narcotic effect. CBD is not psychoactive and is not classified as a narcotic. THC is illegal in many countries and is mostly used for recreational porposes, but CBD is valued for its medicinal and therapeutic effects.

CBD affects each person differently, according to the individual state of body and mind.

CBD helps identify weak links and health problems in the body and resolve them through the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a biological system similar to the immune system that plays a major role in controlling many vital processes, such as the functioning of the nervous system and metabolism. Unlike drugs, where one specific drug is created for each 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 already 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 as a result of new studies.

External magic wand to treat skin issues

The skin is the largest organ in the human body and forms an important part of the endocannabinoid system. Similar to receptors in the brain or digestive system, thousands of small receptors in the skin can bind to CBD and be responsive to its therapeutic value. This means that when applied to the skin, cosmetics containing CBD target the primary issue with a particular skin type and encourage the production of new, healthy skin cells to address the issue. CBD skincare products have helped people all over the world in restoring healthy skin, whether they were suffering from acne, pigment spots, scars, or micro-tears from dryness.

LUMI hemp seed oil based products work on the same principle. The ideal ratio of omega fatty acids for the skin is found in cold-pressed hemp seed oil, and also a number of beneficial vitamins, phytosterols, chlorophyll, and antioxidants. In order to guarantee the highest quality of active substances, LUMI works with local Estonian organic hemp farmers. The creams are prepared just after the oil is extracted from the seeds, ensuring that the products are as fresh and effective as possible.

Hemp oil helps to reduce many different skin problems, especially those related to excessive dryness of the skin and an imbalance of the microbiome – such as dermatitis or acne. For skin inflammations that require special attention, the LUMI selection also includes a CBD+ product line. We use the highest quality full-spectrum CBD extract, which has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin, immediately helps with itching, soothes and stimulates the skin to renew itself over time. The organism naturally accepts CBD extract since it is natural to the human body. This explains the remarkable performance in complex problems as well. Additionally, the CBD+ products assist in the early prevention of skin issues. The saturation of high-quality active ingredients in the extract prevents the development of early aging symptoms like wrinkles, dull complexion, and rough, dry skin.
