Maneuvering Hemp-Based Products Safely

We know you're curious about this 'Top Trending' plant...CBD. Cannabidiol comes from industrial hemp (male plant) not the female marijuana plant which makes it legal in all states thanks to the December 2018 Farm Bill. CBD even has celebrities 'hooked' on its benefits (pain-relieving and skin healing abilities, don't let that imagination run wild!).

Buyers Beware , when using want to be sure that you are purchasing hemp-based CBD products from a trusted source (it's easy to confuse Cannabidiol, CBD, with Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil which is another phrase for hemp seed oil that only traces of CBD)! Let's break down each of these subjects and make sure you understand all there is to know about CBD.


1) CBD versus hemp....hemp oil is NOT CBD and is pressed from the seeds of the plants. Cannabidiol is one of 113 identified cannabinoids from the cannabis plants but from the leaves, stalk, and plant.

2) Is CBD legal? Yes, per the Farm Bill passed in December 2018 as long as the CBD is derived from industrial hemp (male plant and not the female plant marijuana) and as long as the extraction has lower than .3% of THC. After meeting those requirements it is considered legal in the USA.

3) Benefits of ingestible CBD, Hemp, and THC. CBD benefits include anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-psychotic and related to killing breast cancer cells. THC is associated with the easing of pain, psychosomatic effect, suppresses pain receptor signals, muscle spasms and convulsions (it is ILLEGAL but is often used for medical reasons in some states for pain, and other chronic issues like cancer). Hemp (also legal) is a great source of omega 6 and 3 fatty acids and is a complete protein source with all the amino acids. Aids in digestion and are an excellent source of nutrition and has been available at health food stores for years.

4) Benefits of topical CBD in skincare.

We want you to wreak the full benefits of these amazing, non-toxic CBD products without the stress, that's the point duh! P.S. to the Hemp Haters, using topical CBD Rubs infused with USA-derived industrial hemp ingredients will not result in a head high. Sorry to our hopeful 70's babes! CBD (cannabidiol) is a chemical found naturally in hemp plants and does not have the psychoactive properties as THC does. Now let's get down to business! CBD topically works as an antioxidant, as an anti-inflammatory. And we all know that inflammation in the skin is the root of all evil. It also helps with regulating oil production (hello, clear skin!). Also topically great for post work out inflammation...You tiger balm of sorts! So now you know what all of the hype of Canna-beauty is about...let's dive into our active and powerful CBD products.

The benefits of CBD know no bounds! CBD works as an incredible anti-inflammatory, antioxidant source, and as a pain signal interference product.

With all the new research corroborating this, Switch2Pure is at the forefront of this wonderful all-natural non-drug, botanical! The entire line of CBD skincare we created will have you swooning! These products all are non-comedogenic, organic, vegan, and cruelty-free!

With the launch of our CBD skincare we want to share a little behind the why:

When Estela started Switch2Pure's retail store, she wasn’t focused on creating her own products. It wasn’t until she realized that a completely transparent, active and totally lux natural skincare line was missing in the market. Finding skincare products that are as luxurious as you expect, as active and effective as you need, and as completely pure, natural, and non-toxic wasn’t as easy as you might think. Estela made it her mission to change that for good! With her team of highly obsessed, researched backed scientists and formulators, she created a line of effective skincare products loaded with active, and hand-selected,ingredients like CBD, rose hips, green tea extract, and pomegranate seed, but without the toxic stuff! This line of products is experiential, pure, and formulated without hidden ingredients. Loaded with organic and natural ingredients that not only meet many strict governmental standards – they meet our standards (what we call #ThePurePromise). These effervescent products feel even better than they smell, but most importantly they work wonders for your skin by nourishing, hydrating, and renewing the skin. We hope you love them as much as we do!


What is the difference between CBD and Hemp?

CBD, known as cannabidiol, is one of the few hundred active compounds found of the cannabis plant. It acts as an analgesic + anti-inflammatory and is extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalk of the plant. Hemp is derived from the seeds of the cannabis plant, it is high in antioxidants and omega fatty acids but contains no CBD. CBD and Hemp have no THC (or less than .03%), have no psychoactive components and are used in a variety of applications, however, Hemp doesn't hold the anti-inflammation and other power that CBD holds. The World Health Organization recently released this statement about Cannabinoids: "In an animal drug discrimination model, CBD failed to substitute for THC. In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential." A link to the report can be found here.

What are the Benefits of CBD Based Products?

"CBD acts in some experimental models as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-oxidant, anti-emetic, anxiolytic and antipsychotic agent, and is, therefore, a potential medicine for the treatment of neuroinflammation, epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting and nausea, anxiety and schizophrenia, respectively. The neuroprotective potential of CBD, based on the combination of its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, is of particular interest and is presently under intense preclinical research in numerous neurodegenerative disorders." - The excerpt posted on the US National Library of Medicine found here.
