What exactly does CBD do for the skin?

The research on CBD shows that it is a powerful anti-inflammatory substance. Many studies have supported these claims, citing specific findings, including one from 2010 that found that CBD reduces inflammatory cytokines and chemokines.

Another promising aspect of CBD in skin care is its action promoting the proliferation and differentiation of cells. Its powerful antioxidant properties over-perform other commonly used substances and are now used in anti-aging creams. For people with specific skin conditions, CBD could be particularly helpful as it encourages more effective cell differentiation.

Learn how Topical CBD can increase Women’ Sexual Wellness

Communication and emotional connection with your partner contributes to satisfying sex life. Today, there is an increased interest in the influence of CBD on sexual wellness, especially in women above that age of 45. Topical CBD is best as it gives you fast results of enhanced arousal and lubrication.

Are you in your menopause? Apply topical CBD to your genital organs, to derive the following benefits:

  1. Decreased Pain

Women aged 45 and above may experience pain during sex. This attributed to trauma from childbirth, hormonal imbalances, or injuries. Also, because the lining of their vagina is thin and produces less lubrication. These issues put a damper on their sex life, and you find that they do not want to engage. When you apply topical CBD to the inside of your vagina and outer, it is absorbed by the walls of your vagina. It helps in relieving the pain in the pelvis due to inflammation. It eases the tension in the pelvic muscles, which restricts penetration. And it also acts as a lubricant during sex. The use of lube leads to intense arousal, enjoyable, and pain-free sex life.

  1. Increased Sensitivity

The level of your arousal and lubrication influences penetration during sex. Women above 45 years often experience little or no sensation during sex. This is because they have low levels of estrogen. Which reduces lubrication and blood flow to the thin vaginal walls. The application of lube CBD will help increase blood flow through the vaginal walls. It also increases lubrication. This results in enhanced arousal and a well-lubricated vagina. Thus, easy penetration and mind-blowing orgasms.

  1. Increased Arousal

Estrogen ensures the thickness of blood vessels and blood flow in the genitals. It also enhances arousal, which makes sex feel amazing. Women in menopause have little or no estrogen. This means thin blood vessels, and no blood flow, hence no arousal. When topical CBD is applied to the vulva and vagina, it acts as a vasodilator. It increases the circulation of blood to the vessels. This enhances the chances of arousal and better penetration during sex. Also, the chances of having orgasms are enhanced.

Women who are in their menopause are not to shy away from wanting a better sexual life. If you are experiencing a snag in your sexual wellness, write to us and find the help you need info@morganna.northernagency.co.uk

6 Crucial Requirements to buying good CBD OIL

1.   The Source of Your CBD Matters

The hemp plant is a hyper accumulator. It takes in anything that is present in the ground that it was cultivated and farmed. If a hemp plant grew on rich soil, it will be of high quality that can produce CBD oil in the same high-quality as well.

The safest CBD oil will be grown in an area where the government requires farmers to be certified and have their fields frequently tested for toxic substances.

 

  1. Extracted using CO₂

The best CBD oils are extracted using safe solvents like supercritical CO₂. It ensures a safe extract is produced free of any additives or additional chemicals — which is often the case with other extraction methods.

Supercritical CO2 extraction requires expensive equipment, more complex refinement process and production expertise, but it ensures that CBD oil maintains its purity all through the process

 

  1.  If the price is too good to be true!!!

High-quality CBD oils aren’t cheap to make, so if the price is too low, that’s a good sign that it was made from inferior or contaminated raw materials, sub-standard solvents, or it doesn’t contain very much, if any, actual CBD.

  1. The product label includes the amount of CBD

Good CBD oil made by a reputable company will tell you how much CBD you’re getting right on the label. Look for either the concentration or the total number of milligrams in the bottle. Higher numbers mean a more potent product. To be considered effective, the bottle should contain 250–1000mg per 30ml bottle.

    5.  Careful of Vaping Products that contain Propylene Glycol

Vape pens produce little smoke and are easy to transport and use. They can they can easily go undetected. But the concentrated oils used in vape pens of CBD might contain a solvent called propylene glycol. When burned at high temperatures, propylene glycol can degrade into formaldehyde, a chemical that can irritate the nose and eyes and could increase the risk of asthma and cancer. To avoid this problem, consider CBD vape pens that advertise “solvent-free oils.”

 

 

    6.  Make sure it Contains under 0.03% THC

CBD oils made from hemp may contain trace amounts of THC—usually 0.03% or less—but it’s not nearly enough to get you high. However, sub-standard processing can boost the levels of THC to a percentage that can create a psychoactive effect that can be uncomfortable for some. Not only is this a sign of a low-quality product, it could even make the CBD oil illegal where you live.
