CBD Frequently Asked Questions

Q: DO ELIXIR MIND BODY BOTANICALS PRODUCTS CONTAIN THC?

No, none of Elixir Mind Body Botanicals products contain THC, the psychoactive compound in the cannabis plant. All of the CBD is extracted from industrial hemp, which contains no THC.

Q: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD AND THC?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant and does not cause a euphoric “high” like it’s sister-compound, tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. When applied topically, CBD jumpstarts your skin’s ability to regenerate itself on a cellular level. CBD offers a significant advantage for proposed medicinal uses and self-care products (ahem…CAUSE+MEDIC) due to its strong anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Q: HOW DOES ELIXIR MIND BODY BOTANICALS CBD HELP THE SKIN AND BODY?

Your skin’s receptors (referred to as CB2) are activated by your body’s own endocannabinoids which allow your skin to regenerate on a cellular level. These receptors can also be activated by outside sources such as CBD or phytocannbinoids. CBD actually stimulates cellular turnover quicker than your body does on its own. What does this mean for your skin? Well by speeding up the process of skin regeneration we can slow down the effects of aging, various skin conditions, and even repair skin damage.

WHAT ARE TOPICALS?

Topicals are cannabis-infused, non-psychoactive lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized treatment. With most topicals, cannabinoids can’t breach the bloodstream; they only penetrate to the system of CB2 receptors. REMEMBER: Cannabis topicals are considered to be any product used on top of the skin. They act as powerful, localized self-care products but have no psychoactive effects. They can make you feel/look better but will not get you high.
