The Carolina Hemp Hut team will often suggest cannabis products for both internal usage (such as Drops) in addition to topical application. The reason: Better Synergy. Feel better faster with a dual approach,

Hemp Oil Extract and Hemp Oil based Products for better Skin Health and less Discomfort.

There’s a trick to getting more effective impact from the use of skin (or topically) applied CBD and Hemp products. We nearly always suggest using isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. 

This helps absorption into the outer layers of you skin with the hemp based products as alcohol is a “penetration enhancer”. Using it will often assist the beneficial botanicals in getting into the skin faster and more effectively – thus saving you money in the long run.

Better skin with Hemp?

CBD/Hemp Topicals and Skin Care is important to those who want to eliminate or greatly reduce the discomfort associated with aches, pains, rashes, inflammation and so much more. Whether you have localized (in a small area) pain, eczema, psoriasis, acne, back pain or many other discomforts, it’s a good idea to try CBD.

What is a good dose of cannabinoids for Skin Care?

Since there is a tremendous variety of skin oriented CBD products, it’s easy to be confused as to what product is best suited for addressing the various aspects of skin care. For example, it’s a good idea to have a product with higher levels of CBD by volume (or higher concentration of CBD) if you are using cannabis products on your skin for treating discomfort from pain and aches than you would use for beauty and skin health.

A good rule of thumb would be aim for stronger (such as 250mg per ounce or more) concentration of CBD and other cannabinoids than lower if you have significant discomfort. For healthier skin care in a botanical health regimen, then a lower concentration is often effective and typically less expensive than a high potency formula. Even with product which contain low or no CBD, hemp seed oil based products (such as the Mile High Cure shampoo and conditioner) offer great benefits to improving skin and hair health based upon their natural botanical action.

It’s good to learn that body butters and balms are made utilizing the base ingredients of natural butter(s) and herbal/vegetable/nut/seed oils.

Balms contain beeswax. 

Salves use herbal oils and beeswax. 

Since body balms, butters, and salves do not contain water, they are called anhydrous formulations. Anhydrous simply means without water. The lack of water also means they do not need a preservative  in many cases. 

If we break down the basic formulation for most products, you will see the following structures:

Body Butter: Body butter is a thick cream that is deeply moisturizing. Many use body butters to protect skin from dryness as well as to treat rough or patchy skin. Body butter typically contains a combination of naturally derived butters like cocoa, shea, or a nut butter. 

Balm: Balms are very rich in botanical oils. Generally a Balm will contain typical natural butters such as cocoa, shea, or a nut butter along with a generous blend of beeswax.

Salves: People who are seeking heavy duty treatment typically should choose a salve. Salves are generally made up of a combination of herbal oils and beeswax, but at a lower percentage than balms. This gives them a softer texture that allows them to be absorbed into the skin.
