CBD (Cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid associated with numerous health and wellness benefits. CBD has been used for centuries around the world to relieve pain and inflammation and to ease skin conditions. All Allay CBD products are infused with full spectrum CBD derived from the highest quality hemp sourced from Siskiyou Sungrown.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING CBD TOPICALLY?
CBD itself is a powerful antioxidant, meaning it protects the skin from free radicals like UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants. Free radicals lead to wrinkles and fine lines, but antioxidants protect our skin from this damage and help fight the effects of aging.
Hemp oil topicals contain an array of other essential nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fatty acids, to encourage skin health. Vitamins A and D are responsible for skin repair. They support skin cell growth and inhibit oil production to keep skin soft and supple. Like CBD, Vitamins C and E are antioxidants and protect the skin’s collagen and elastin against damage from the sun and free radicals. B complex vitamins serve as part of the construction process for skin, hair, and nails to prevent dermatitis, hair loss, and other skin conditions.
CBD topicals should be applied right to troubled areas so that the CBD oil can work directly where it’s needed most. Ingesting CBD products orally causes CBD and other compounds to enter the blood stream, which elicits full-body effects and takes two or more hours before those effects are experienced. The healing compounds and other hemp-derived nutrients in CBD topicals are almost immediately absorbed through your skin, allowing them to target affected areas for quicker and more focused results.
WHAT IS 'WHOLE PLANT MEDICINE'?
The belief that whole plants are used to treat whole people is the heart of traditional herbal medicine. This is a key difference between allopathic medicine and most traditional systems around the world. Western medicine is about breaking the body into parts, like organs and tissues, and finding ways to treat particular diseases and ease certain symptoms by targeting particular cellular pathways with silver-bullet drugs. Traditional herbal medicine, like almost all traditional medicine systems, treats underlying imbalances in the body that are believed to cause disease. Herbalists use medicines made from whole plants that, with their complex mix of chemicals, are believed to be the most effective way of addressing pain.

CANNABIS VS. HEMP
Fundamentally, both hemp and marijuana are the same plant: Cannabis sativa. There's evidence of Cannabis sativa being grown in Asia thousands of years ago for its fiber and nutritional value.
Humans eventually realized that the flowering tops of the plant had psychoactive properties. As humans have done with so many crops, Cannabis farmers began cultivating plants to enhance specific properties.
Hemp – A plant primarily cultivated outside the United States (although a few U.S. states allow it to be grown for research purposes) for use in clothing, paper, biofuels, bioplastics, dietary supplements, cosmetics, and foods. Hemp is cultivated outdoors as a large crop with both male and female plants being present to foster pollination and increase seed production.
Legally imported industrial hemp contains less than 0.3% of the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). In fact, legally imported hemp will usually specifically eliminate any extracts from the plant’s dried flowering tops.
Marijuana (Marihuana) – Cannabis sativa specifically cultivated to enhance its THC content to be used for medicinal or recreational purposes. Marijuana plants are typically grown indoors, under controlled conditions, and growers remove all the male plants from the crop to prevent fertilization, which lowers the plant’s THC level.
