  • The wellbeing derived from CBD is attributed to its interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system.

For good reason, CBD-infused beauty products are all the rage with new products coming to market daily. What isn’t being talked about, but should be, is the “greenwashing” of CBD, meaning everyone is using CBD to look like they have a trendy, natural product, but the way it is being used and formulated doesn’t actually provide its touted benefits.
