We’ve never thought of ourselves as your typical men’s grooming specialists and like to be out there with new ideas, pushing the boundaries. So we’ve been carefully following the rise in importance in the skincare world of what we call ‘Active Hemp’. And what we found has led us to launch our own very natural skin and healthcare product: Dr Buddi Active Extract Drops.
When Active Hemp (also known as CBD) is used in skin preparations it can provide a number of very positive effects. These include increased immunity to control infections. So, it is widely thought to be beneficial in the treatment of conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, sores and venous ulcers. It can also be used for grazes, burns and insect bites and is helpful in treating dry, irritated skin and assisting scar prevention. Using it every day is a great way to protect and maintain healthy skin.
Wider health benefits
Though its effects on skin are thought to be both powerful and effective, its benefits go well beyond skincare to general and specific healthcare. There is considerable evidence to show that active hemp can be effective in:
- relieving pain and inflammation
• providing antipsychotic effects
• reducing anxiety
• helping to fight cancer
• relieving nausea
• treating seizures and other neurological disorders
• lowering the incidence of diabetes
• promoting cardiovascular health.
Dr Buddi comes in the form of a liquid containing either 5% or 10% CBD (Active Hemp) in organic hemp and organic olive oil applied as 2-3 drops a day under the tongue. A highly refined, pure natural oil, it is derived from the hemp plant which is considered a food nutrient. Although related to cannabis, it contains only a tiny quantity of THC which is the component that provides the psychoactive and euphoric effects of cannabis. Because of this, it won’t give you a cannabis high. And, because it contains only a tiny fraction of THC it is, unlike cannabis, perfectly legal.
A safe alternative
Active hemp is also known as CBD Oil, where CBD stands for Cannibidiol. This natural substance is derived from hemp plants containing only trace amounts of the psychoactive THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), while cannabis is derived from plants with a high concentration of THC. This makes it a safer, less controversial alternative, while still offering significant health benefits.
CBD has been the focus of more than 23,000 published studies about cannabinoids (the group to which CBD and THC belong) and their effects on many different medical conditions. Its use has a very good safety record as this study shows. Even chronic use of CBD has shown it to have no neurological, psychiatric, or clinically adverse effects. No respiratory depression or cardiovascular complications have been recorded.
To ensure the purity of the active hemp Dr Buddi’s CBD Oil, it is extracted from organic industrial hemp by a supercritical CO2 extraction process. The hemp plants used for extraction are carefully selected, grown organically and hand harvested with utmost care under supervision in the subalpine region of Slovenia and Croatia.
These processes preserve all of the terpenes, flavonoids, and nutrients found in our Active Hemp. These all promise positive, therapeutic effects as medical research continues.
If you have skin problems or are simply looking after your general health, it’s well worth looking into what Dr Buddi can do for you.
