Spotlight on CBD

CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids that have been isolated and identified by scientists. In recent years CBD has gained widespread notoriety for its ability to treat a plethora of lifelong chronic illness and disease. Some facts about CBD:

  • CBD is completely non-psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you high.
  • CBD is non-addictive, has minimal side effects, and can be used safely by both children, adults, and animals.
  • CBD can treat schizophrenia, post traumatic stress, epileptic disorders, depression, anxiety, cancer, osteoporosis, nausea, lupus, OCD, Parkinson’s disease, acute and chronic pain, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative disorders, psychosis and so much more.

I use CBD for my diagnosed generalized anxiety and major depressive disorders, conditions I have had for my entire adult life. At the end of 2017 I used CBD therapy to successfully go completely off of pharmaceuticals, and I’m eager to share what I have learned with you! I use the “Spotlight on CBD” umbrella to house product reviews (both sponsored and non), in-depth articles, videos, and podcasts about this important topic.

Origin of Hemp

Organic hemp grown in Colorado

With an exceptional growing climate combined with an enlightened legislative atmosphere, we believe Colorado is a perfect home for im·bue botanicals. But there’s more to the story… In Colorado, we are able to grow our hemp in fields that grow crops for human consumption, not isolated lots or non-agricultural growing conditions one finds overseas. And we can grow at high altitude, which increases the amount of sunlight available to our plants, and can increase the overall level of cannabinoids.

Personal Thoughts

Products I’ve Tried

CBD for Beauty

Mark my words, CBD for beauty and skin care is soon to become prevalent in the beauty world, and it’s certain you’ll be seeing more of it in health and beauty products in the future. There has been a lot of recent and interesting research connecting CBD with anti-aging properties and effective acne treatment, so I was really excited to try Imbue Botanicals’ line of skin care to see how it might work for me.

First, my favorite product by Imbue is their lip balm. The strawberry taste is amazing, and the balm leaves my lips silky soft and moisturized, without feeling sticky or greasy. I use the balm daily, but I see the most improvement when I put it on my lips before bed.

Next on my list of favorites, is the luxurious CBD rich facial cream. Thick and deeply moisturizing, this product does wonders overnight and makes my face look more youthful and radiant. I’ve been using very small amounts at night at the end of my skin care routine and my skin feels tighter and pores smaller when I wake up in the morning. It also reduces scarring, redness and inflammation.

Imbue’s eye cream is also phenomenal. I use this very sparingly to reduce under-eye puffiness before I apply makeup, as well as at night for intensive healing. I feel like it’s helping to fill out those under eye lines I get from squinting while stoned, and it definitely helps with puffiness and bags under the eye. This is a product I plan on using for a long time.

CBD Topicals for Pain and Wellness

In my house, we are all big fans of CBD salves for pain, soreness, and muscle tightness. Imbue’s 200mg topical salve is excellent for stopping pain, be it the beginnings of a massive tension headache, pulled back muscles, or growing pains on our kid’s long legs. I firmly believe every house should have a CBD salve of some sort on hand. It works as well as Icy Hot or Ben Gay, without the offensive odor. We use this thick salve for localized pain and it works really well.

I use Imbue’s 200mg lotion for daily moisturizing, and I love how quickly this non-greasy formula absorbs into my skin. Use this lotion fresh from the shower and you’ll have a day of pain relief, increased cell turnover, reduced redness and inflammation, and hydrated skin.

Who Should Try Imbue Botanicals

Looking to add CBD into your beauty routine? With their pampering, CBD-rich, face and eye creams, body lotion and more, Imbue Botanicals is a wonderful place to start reaping the benefits or CBD and your skin.

Horse, cat, and dog owners interested in treating their furry family members with CBD should check out Imbue’s line of animal products. Grown and processed under the exact same conditions as their people products, Imbue’s pet versions are carefully formulated for optimal concentrations for both cats and dogs. We use CBD in our aging dog’s food every day and it’s made a huge difference in his comfort and energy levels. With Imbue you’ll feel confident knowing that you’re giving your furry family member the best quality CBD available.

I also recommend Imbue Botanicals for anyone qualifying for Imbue’s assistance programs for veterans, the disabled, and low-income households. There are hundreds of reputable CBD companies out there and only a few offer assistance programs like that, so it’s important as consumers to reward the companies that do with our business. As a collective whole we are beginning to understand that safe access to cannabis and hemp for health is basic human right, and we should all be doing our part to make that access available across all facets of society.
