CBD seems to be the new big thing in the beauty and skincare world, but what even is a CBD product, and why does everyone seem to love them so much?! Since we are no professionals here at The LA Girl, we left it to a true CBD Guru, Tomm Voss, Co-Founder of Urth Remedies, to teach us exactly what CBD products are and what beginners should know before buying them. Follow along to get all of your questions answered, and you might even discover your new fav products!
Meet Our CBD Guru, Tomm Voss, Co-Founder of Urth Remedies:
A. “Urth Remedies was founded on the principles of sourcing the highest quality full spectrum hemp CBD because there was so much “Junk” and misleading labels and products on the market. I have a background in holistic health and wellness after having to heal myself from an auto immune disease and under-functioning thyroid. I was told I had to take medications for the rest of my life, but refused to believe it. I have heard that the body could heal itself and that nature has a remedy for everything. I was able to heal my body through Qigong, plant medicines and holistic health and nutrition.
My partner Damian Stevens and I set out to find the best and purest ingredients to create Urth Remedies and provide our customers with the highest quality products possible. So from this holistic mindset we chose to create a company that not only provides remedies from the Earth but in turn also gives back to the Earth with portion of our profits to help Wild life preservation, Ocean Cleanup and other great causes. So you are not only doing something good for your body when you buy our products, but also for the planet we call home. We pride ourselves in transparency and superior quality.”
Q. What sets your product aside from others?
A. “We have formulated a special product that combines Full Spectrum Hemp CBD with Medicinal Mushrooms such as Lion’s mane, Cordyceps and Reishi. Medicinal mushrooms are given the name because they are used in Chinese medicine amongst others, for their amazing immune boosting/supporting benefits, positive effects on the immune system and the bodies ability to deal with stress. They are known as adaptogens – adaptogens are plants and mushrooms that help your bodies response to stress, anxiety, fatigue and improve overall well-being. You can take adaptogens by adding them to food or beverages or take them as tinctures and powders/capsules. Adaptogens bring your body back to a steady balance by managing both physical and mental stressors. We have other great wellness products and formulations in development. We want our customers to know that when they choose Urth Remedies products, they are choosing the highest quality products and support a conscious brand committed to making a positive difference.”
Q. What is your go-to CBD Skin Care product?
A. “I personally use our CBD Balm and our Soothing Cream, as I have found it is great for inflammation and muscle and joint soreness as well as Mosquito bites and even sunburns. I am proud of the quality and purity of our products which are all 3rd Party Lab Tested. We have gotten and continue to get amazing feedback from our customers.”
Rundown on What to Know about CBD Products:
Q. What is CBD? What makes a product considered to be a CBD Skin Care product?
A. “CBD or Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants which accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. CBD is the second most active compound in the Cannabis/Hemp plant. CBD does not cause a high by itself according to the World Health Organization and has many potential positive benefits for the body, both topically applied and orally ingested. According to WHO there is no public health related problems associated with the use CBD.
A product is considered a CBD skincare product when it contains CBD – its effects and benefits however depend on the concentration and quality of the ingredients – not all products are created equal. It is therefore important to know exactly what is in the product you purchase as many products and brands can be misleading. You will typically know the safety and potency of your product by having a 3rd Party Lab Report and COA (Certificate of Analysis).”
Q. What are the major benefits of CBD products?
A. “According to Harvard Health Publishing and Harvard Medical School Animal studies, and self-reports or research in humans, suggest CBD may also help with:
1. Anxiety – Studies and clinical trials are exploring the common report that CBD can reduce anxiety.
2. Insomnia – Studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.
3. Chronic pain – Further human studies are needed to substantiate claims that CBD helps control pain. One animal study from the European Journal of Pain suggests CBD could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis when applied to skin. Other research identifies how CBD may inhibit inflammatory and neuropathic pain, which are difficult to treat.
4. Addiction – CBD can help lower cravings for tobacco and heroin under certain conditions, according to some research in humans. Animal models of addiction suggest it may also help lessen cravings for alcohol, cannabis, opiates, and stimulants.
**CBD comes in many forms such as oil, creams, powders, capsules etc.”
