It is both an anti-aging wonder and a lifesaver for dry and sensitive skin.

Healthy lipids (fats) called ceramides are a part of the surface skin structure that keeps it moisturized. Insufficient amounts of ceramides causes dryness, irritation and increased sensitivity to environmental factors. Having the perfect combination of oils and butters in this product will help you to maintain the essential fatty acids (Omega 3, 6, and 9) necessary for skin health. It is important to have skin loving oils that penetrate the skin, providing vitimins and beneficial amino acids.
It is currently believed that CBD oil has natural pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. This helps people who suffer from chronic pain due to injuries or inflammatory conditions such as arthritis . Patients with multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia have already used CBD oil to great effect in pain relief .
β-Caryophyllene from Copaiba Oil is said to activate the CB2 receptor and is a potential therapeutic strategy for inflammation, pain, atherosclerosis, and osteoporosis . The activation of CB2 receptors has been found to support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems . CB2 receptors are also found in the brain and as such β-Caryophyllene may be neuro-protective in a similar fashion as CBD. We look forward to additional research to be performed here in the US. Chromatographic studies showed that the main compound among sesquiterpenes was β-caryophyllene (57.5%), followed by α-humulene, α-copaene, α-bergamotene, δ-cadinene.... all extracted from the Copaiba resin .

Naturally occurring in the body, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) consists of a large network of cannabinoid receptors spread throughout the body. The cannabinoids that are released from the ECS system interact with the receptors of almost all the tissues in our body. The role of the ECS is to bring balance to these tissues such as the heart, the digestive, nervous, reproductive and immune systems. Basically, its main aim is to keep the body in a neutral state, and balanced.
Cannabinoid receptors are found in cell membranes of the body that are responsible for regulating your daily mood, appetite, memory and pain sensation. These receptors can be activated by naturally occurring endocannabinoids or, by the cannabinoids found in CBD oil.
