CBD, or cannabidiol is the non-intoxicating component of marijuana or hemp plants. CBD contains vitamins A, D, E, and antioxidants your skin needs to fight the anti-aging process, as well as essential fatty acids that help make your skin look smoother and more radiant. Omega-6 fatty acid helps moisturize skin while it soothes and relieves skin issues.
Doesn’t clog pores.
The endocannabinoid system impacts virtually every single physiological system in the body. It modulates the regulation of the neuroendocrine system, which regulates organ function and stress response. The best way to boost endocannabinoid signaling and promote a healthy endocrine system is the use of a dietary cannabinoid supplement, like our Simple and Powerful CBD Drops.
When applied topically to the skin, the most immediately recognizable effect is that it is rich in essential fatty acids, which assists in maintaining healthy, youthful, and glowing skin. It is also superior in helping to reduce the appearance of pore size, protecting the skin’s appearance from the damaging effects of aging and maintaining a soft, smooth and youthful look and feel.
Our skin acts as a protective barrier. The molecules in THC are too big and can not be absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin. The cannabinoids bind to receptors in our skin, muscle tissue, and nerves, but get absorbed before they could permeate through our skin into the bloodstream. THC only gets users high when it reaches our brains, something it cannot do through the surface of the skin.
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of more than a hundred cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis. Unlike THC, another well-known cannabinoid, CBD is non-psychoactive. It won’t get you high.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced by the body) and the receptors they bind to, cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid receptor type 2 (CB2). The endocannabinoid system has been shown to be involved in the regulation of a number of physiological and cognitive processes throughout the human body.

Cannabinoids are a group of chemical compounds that are most commonly found in–but not exclusive to—cannabis. In addition to being produced endogenously by the human endocannabinoid system, cannabinoids have also been found in other botanical sources, including hops and varieties of Echinacea. At least 113 cannabinoids have been isolated from cannabis and characterized, with two of the most notable ones being cannabidiol (CBD) tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Full Spectrum CBD (hemp oil) means that an oil or product contains all the cannabinoids, compounds, minerals, fiber, flavonoids, and terpenes that are found in the whole cannabis plant in nature, rather than just CBD (cannabidiol). Unlike isolated or synthetic cannabinoids, full spectrum hemp oil holds nothing back and contains all cannabinoids (there are over 100 different cannabinoids). When the combination of multiple compounds in their natural state are used, it is referred to as the “entourage effect”, as it is theorized that the many components within the cannabis plant interact with the human body to produce a combined influence than any one of those components alone.
Products made with Broad Spectrum and Isolated CBD do not retain all these natural compounds and therefore may not have the same effects or benefits.
Our full-spectrum products are standardized to specific CBD potencies and due to the natural variation of plant extracts, the levels of peripheral cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids may fluctuate from batch to batch.
Not to be confused with tinctures that contain alcohol, CBD oil tinctures normally do not contain alcohol. Instead CBD oil is mixed with a carrier oil such as hemp and MCT, as well as flavors and sometimes added terpenes. Another use for tinctures is to be mixed with other topical products to help deliver CBD directly where needed.
CBD meets the World Health Organization (WHO) definition of being psychoactive. The WHO defines psychoactive substances as substances “that, when taken in or administered into one’s system, affect mental processes, e.g. cognition or effect.”
However, while this may be the case for CBD, it must be noted that CBD is non-intoxicating in its effects. It does not produce feelings of euphoria, stupor, or loss of control; effects commonly associated with THC ingestion. Research suggests that this is due to the fact that CBD does not bind to the CB1 receptor in the same way that THC does. In fact, CBD has been shown in some studies to modulate or reduce the intoxicating effects of THC.
We cannot make specific recommendations regarding serving sizes; however, we recommend anyone new to cannabinoids start with a small amount of CBD, and gradually increase the serving size until the desired effect(s) is achieved.
Your serving size will be dependent upon your body weight, metabolism, individual body chemistry, and other metabolic factors. Due to the wide range of use-cases for CBD, appropriate serving sizes can vary widely.
The 2018 Farm Bill will greatly increase the availability of CBD products for sale to the general public, by removing hemp-derived CBD from the federal list of Controlled Substances.
When federal laws change, there is often a transition period where state/local laws and regulations must be brought into compliance with federal law. We are currently in such a transition period, where multiple state and local laws may undergo rapid change. We encourage users to always check with your local government, law enforcement or customs office for the most up-to-date information regarding the legality of CBD in your area before making a purchase
The production of cannabis distillate begins with crude extraction. Impurities in the extracted oil (fats, lipids, and other various compounds) are removed in order for the oil to be separated even further.
Winterization is the next step in the processes of creating cannabis distillate. This method mixes the crude extract with ethanol, where it is then placed in a very cold environment for 24-48 hours. Impurities congeal in the cold temperatures and separate, where they fall to the bottom of the container.
CBD naturally occurs in the hemp plant as Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA), which is a very closely related analogue of CBD. In order to transform CBDA into CBD, a given plant or extract must undergo a process known as decarboxylation. Sometimes, this process is referred to as “activation” as it produces a more biologically active version of the CBD molecule. Decarboxylation is defined as the removal of a carboxyl group from a given molecule, and is accomplished in CBD by heating the material to approximately 110 °C (230 °F). This facilitates the removal of the carboxyl group on the CBDA molecule and produces CBD as the end product.
Our products all contain CBD distillate. Distillation is an extraction process that separates and refines cannabinoids at a molecular level. Distillation and extraction are two of the most common methods used for isolating the pure cannabinoids.
The difference between distillation and extraction is that extraction requires a suitable solvent for the separation process (like with BHO), while distillation follows heating of a liquid mixture and collecting the vapor of the liquid at its boiling point and then condensing the vapor to get the pure CBD oil.
CBD distillate is almost as close to pure cannabinoid oil as you can get. Every bulk shipment of CBD extract we receive undergoes an initial test for heavy metals, pesticides and potency. Before production, the raw oil undergoes a second test for these same items and is also tested for residual solvents. Our third party potency results show a precise CBD concentration present in each batch of our products.
The TSA recently released updated policies regarding traveling with CBD. “Products/medications that contain hemp-derived CBD or are approved by the FDA are legal as long as it is produced within the regulations defined by the law under the Agriculture Improvement Act 2018” All of our Yucanna products are hemp-derived and there should be no issues with customers traveling domestically with our products. In regard to traveling internationally, we suggest customers look into the customs laws and regulations for the country they are traveling to.
