What Makes It Work? . . .
Cannabis Roots from organically grown, outdoor plants are dried, ground and activated. Cannabis roots are high in many beneficial compounds. Studies have found that the roots contain high amounts of terpenes, instrumental in the production of essential oils in many plants. Friedelin is one terpene to be identified in cannabis root, and has been independently found to have anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic effects. Other research has shown that the roots contain significant concentrations of alkaloids, including choline, a dietary amine that is essential for the integrity of cell membranes and
atropine, a powerful alkaloid, which when used as eye-drops famously dilates the pupil. It is thought to be helpful for correct function of the digestive system and kidneys, as well as sexual arousal. Cannabis root has also been found to contain other alkaloid groups known as phenolic amides and lignanamides, believed to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a stable, healthy saturated fat that is naturally free from trans-fatty acids. It is produced from only the freshest, organically grown coconuts, and is not hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorized. Coconut oil nourishes and improves skins connective tissue, preventing and softening wrinkles. Due to its antioxidant properties, coconut oil aids in preventing degenerative diseases and protects our skin from free radical damage due to the sun. It is used to treat various skin problems including psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema. Coconut oil is very effective against a variety of infections due to its antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties. When applied to infected areas it forms a chemical layer that protects it from external dust, air, fungi, bacteria and viruses. Coconut oil is also highly effective on bruises because it speeds up the healing process of damaged tissues.

Beeswax, (pure and unprocessed) is a firm but pliable wax created by young worker bees. Six-sided honeycomb cells provide tiny storage units for honey until the beekeeper extracts it from the hive. After harvest, the beekeeper melts and purifies the beeswax, which is highly benefitial when mixed into topical treatments. Beeswax forms a protective barrier on the surface of the skin, providing a film of protection against irritants while still allowing the skin to breathe. Beeswax acts as an emollient and a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin and sealing it in. Beeswax also has been found to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and fungus, making it beneficial in the treatment of bacterial skin conditions.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been known to have a very high nutritive value and wide range of cosmetic applications since its discovery about 5,000 years ago. Its unique and extensive nutrient composition is what sets it above other oils. Amoung these are polyphenols, potent plant antioxidants that protect against cancer causing cell damage, and oleocanthal, a natural compound that helps block pain and inflammation. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also high in oleic acid, making it a great skin cell regenerator. The oil attracts external moisture to the skin while still permitting it to properly release sweat, shed dead skin and release sebum.
Avocado Oil is a highly therapeutic oil rich in vitamins A, B, D, and E, as well as various minerals, protein, lecithin and fatty acids. Vitamin A and D promote collagen production and binding, which can effectively slow down your skin’s aging process. Studies have shown that both intake and topical application of avocado oil can reduce the appearance of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Avocado oil is an effective and luxurious moisturizer for skin and hair. This is due to the presence of the protien sterolin, which adds moisture, and a fatty substance called lecithin, which acts as an emulsifier and lubricant. When applied to the skin, lecithin forms a protective covering on your hair follicles and your skin’s surface, effectively preventing the loss of moisture due to harsh environments.
Vitamin E Oil is an essential fat-soluble vitamin composed of eight naturally occurring compounds. The most important biological function of vitamin E is related to its antioxidant properties. Internally, Vitamin E is the most effective antioxidant in the biological membrane. It protects cellular structures against damage from free radicals and the byproducts of fat peroxidation. It acts as a free radical scavenger to prevent the byproducts of chemical-cell interaction that cause cell damage. Vitamin E oil is often prescribed for topical use in pregnant women to prevent stretch marks on the abdomen. More recently, it has been used to prevent or treat mucositis resulting from chemotherapy. It can help heal acne, promote wound healing and prevent scarring from eczema or psoriasis. Topical vitamin E moisturizes the skin from within, reduces UV induced damage, helps to protect against ozone damage and decreases erythema (redness of the skin) after sun exposure.
