Will HB jump on the CBD bandwagon?
Everywhere I look lately, I’m seeing CBD (cannabidiol) being introduced in ALL kinds of products. Many of you have asked me when we would begin developing products with this ingredient. Here in California, standards are being developed for testing Cannabis products, but not yet for CBD products. I am researching the testing and quality control standards of various vendors to understand that side of the house. There are also many restrictions on accepting/processing payments for CBD products.
As for the benefits of CBD in bath products, that’s what I would like to find out. CBD is a compound found in the Cannabis plant and is non-psychoactive (it can’t get you high, like its close relative THC). It is I’ve been watching this product over the last few years and researching potential benefits to my customers. Scientific research is showing CBD and exhaustive list of health benefits from its use (i.e. pain, inflammation, psoriasis, epilepsy to name a few). My goal has always been to provide natural healthy alternatives to commercially produced chemical laden products.
I have heard about the many benefits of CBD oil taken orally, vaping, edibles and topically. Since our business is all about the skin, I’ve focused my research on topical application. CBD is absorbed through skin pores with topical application but will not enter the blood stream through this method.
So, can loading up a bath bomb (no pun intended) or adding this miracle oil to salves really provide the great benefits I’ve been hearing about? How about blending the benefits of this miracle with other miracle herbs and tinctures?
Well, I’m headed off to do more research and will let you all know how that works out. I’ll be working on bath soaks and muscle rubs and I’m expecting it to be a very RELAXING experience (j/k). Hopefully the relaxation carries over into all of the regulatory requirements & payment processing.
