What is CBD?
CBD: The hype is real. Let us turn you from skeptic to a believer.
First of all, what is CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol, which is a compound known as a cannabinoid and, more specifically, a Phytocannabinoid. Cannabinoids are derived from cannabis plants (eg: marijuana and hemp), which are associated with many general wellness and medicinal qualities. CBD is one of the most commonly researched and utilized, as it is non-psychoactive and interacts with a series of receptors in your body known as the Endocannabinoid System.
Will CBD products get me ‘high’?
No, not at all. Unlike THC, CBD does not cause an intoxicating effect. At &Sunny, we use Premium Grade Broad-Spectrum Hemp Oil tested through an independent third-party laboratory to ensure our products contain less than 0.3% THC.
Is CBD legal?
Yes, it’s legal! In 2018, updates to the U.S. Farm Bill (aka the Agriculture Improvement Act) legalized hemp and the commercial cultivation of hemp under certain regulations. While Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states, CBD derived from marijuana is not legal federally. We are proud to say that &Sunny uses Hemp-derived CBD sourced in the U.S. and is completely legal.
Why does &Sunny use Broad-Spectrum CBD?
There are different methods of extracting CBD from the hemp plant, which yield different kinds of CBD extracts. Here at &Sunny, we use a Broad-Spectrum CBD, which is a bit of a mix between Full-Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate. Like Full Spectrum CBD, the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in the extract; however, like CBD Isolate, THC is completely removed. Because Broad Spectrum CBD contains multiple cannabinoids, it can deliver the enhanced benefits of Full-Spectrum without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC. It’s the best of both worlds!
Why do people take and/or use CBD?
There are several studies that show people use CBD to support their overall wellbeing or to help with target issues. This is what it’s all about for us at &Sunny! We love reading positive stories about the impact CBD products have on people’s everyday lives. Among the many benefits that our customers experience, some of the main ones include relief from stress, joint pain and sleep troubles. While we believe CBD can support wellness in many ways, this is still a young industry and we don’t want to give misleading information. Please note that our products are not intended to cure, diagnose, treat or prevent any disease.
Why would I want CBD in my beauty products?
The most enticing attributes of CBD in beauty products are its anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain-killing) properties. Scientists are finding more and more evidence that it can treat dry skin and other ailments like psoriasis and acne. Additionally, CBD oil is rich in vitamins A, C and E, which stimulate collagen and skin cell production, as well as omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, which contain age-fighting properties. Go on and get your glow on!
What makes &Sunny CBD products different?
Every product at &Sunny is intricately hand-made with a little bit of hemp and a lot of love. We combine premium Broad-Spectrum Hemp Oil with natural botanicals, including therapeutic-grade and cosmetic-grade essential oils, for added benefits (AKA our products would be amazing and nourishing even without the CBD). All &Sunny products also contain lower doses of Broad-Spectrum hemp oil, allowing you to enjoy the benefits without overdoing it.
Do you test your CBD?
Yes. In fact, we test it three times! Every single product that &Sunny creates must meet high standards when it comes to quality, efficacy and enjoyment. From the initial brainstorming all the way down to final testing, many steps take place before it actually makes it into your hands. We test all our products for pesticides, residual solvents, heavy metals, etc., and we triple test for potency through an independent third-party laboratory. So, what we promise is what is delivered. These lab results are always made available!
