When we entered the CBD market, we knew we would do it with full transparency. Our mission has consistently been to provide clean, pure, nontoxic products, and educate consumers about why that is important. With our new Skinny+ line, we have the opportunity to continue that mission with products infused with CBD. Here, we answer some of our most frequently received questions.
What is CBD exactly?
Look at you getting right down to business! CBD is the acronym for cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound found in hemp plants. It is not psychoactive like THC – CBD produces no euphoria or high, and is usually undetectable by the person consuming it. CBD does, however, have a broad range of health benefits, and the effectiveness is currently being studied in multiple studies and clinical trials. Pure CBD with no THC is legal in all 50 states.
Ok, so what is THC?
Ahhh…yes. This one is important. THC is the acronym for Tetrahydrocannabinol, and is found in both hemp and marijuana. THC is the chemical compound which provides the high or euphoria associated with marijuana, nor the side-effects. THC is legal in some states, depending on that state’s laws, and how the chemical is obtained.
What is Hemp?
Now we’re getting down to business! Hemp is a plant that is part of the Cannabis Sativa L. species. Marijuana is also part of this species, but is completely different in composition and uses. However, they are very different in use. Marijuana is largely used for recreational purposes, while hemp is used in health-related products like dietary and skin products,, as well as clothing, building materials and other useful products. And, thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD and all products derived from hemp plants are completely legal in all 50 states.
How is Skinny+ different from other CBD-infused products?
Here’s the big question, and the answer is simple. Skinny+ 100% THC-free – guaranteed. There is no THC in any of our products. None. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Because we know that THC is accumulated in the body over time, even a little bit (less than 0.3 is legal) in a product can lead to unwanted side-effects and appear on a drug screen. So, we are vigilant about testing every batch of products we manufacture to make sure there is no THC. You have our promise.
In addition, we use an extraction process that maintains the purity of the raw CBD oil, and adds no synthetic chemicals. Our CBD has never been heated over 205º, and does not lose any of its value. Other suppliers will distill the oil by heating above 300º and adding chemicals to remove any THC, resulting in a synthetic compound. No one wants that.
What product should I try first?
For a first-time user of CBD-infused products, we recommend starting with our Skinny+ Peppermint Lip Balm. Apply it to your lips throughout the day to moisturize, relieve damage or dryness, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth. Because CBD has been found to reduce inflammation, our Skinny+ lip balm is perfect for chapped or sunburned lips, and especially great for extremely dry lips caused by medication or skin conditions.
