CBD oil is so hot right now. The CBD well-being and beauty expert in London. CBD oil from growers
We saw a massive shift recently in the way the cannabis oil was being marketed and advertised. So much so that the plant-derived medication can be prescribed on the NHS – in certain cases.
With so many hemp products on the market, there is one thing to remember. The high THC – the element in the cannabis that makes you ‘high’ – products are illegal to grow and sell in Europe and the UK. This means that the hemp used for CBD oil production has low concentration of THC (0.2%). As so many daily users of CBD discovered, the oil won’t make you high.
CBD oil beauty benefits
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a product that’s derived from cannabis. It’s a type of cannabinoid, which are the chemicals naturally found in hemp plants. The benefits of the compound are believed to include anti-anxiety, anti-seizure, neuro-protective, and pain relief among others. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) says that CBD may help alleviate cancer symptoms and cancer treatment side effects.
James Dempsey: “Helping others improve their quality of life is at the core of all we do”.
Absorbed and processed through our endocannabinoid systems, there are many more alleged benefits that are yet to be proven.
What does CBD oil do to your skin
When applied topically, CBD is safe and effective for all skin types, but especially helpful to people who struggle with inflammatory skin conditions, skin sensitivity, skin dryness, and acne. Because of its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can help support the skin’s natural healing process, shortening the lifespan of breakouts and eczema/psoriasis flare-ups (1).
CBD oil products – how to choose the right one
But with so many CBD products available online and in health stores, which ones are the best for you? CBD oil comes in different strengths and the stronger the oil concentration, the better the effects and the higher the price. The CBD oil readily available in health stores, for example, is 2.75% – 5%. But if you are after more potent CBD oil, the concentration goes up to 20% and even 40% CBD oil.
Earlier this year, the very first CDB wellness centre in the UK opened its doors to the public in the affluent area of Knightsbridge, London. With a wide spectrum of CBD products on offer – CBD oil of up to 40%, CBD sugar-free gummy bears and various beauty products – the HB CBD Wellness clinic is the place to get your CBD treatments from.

HB CBD oil beauty and wellness centre – what to expect
Apart from your CBD supplies, you can book your time for a well-rounded CBD treatment that will include fully organic CDB facial, CBD infused tea and an Oxygen chamber. Ikon London Magazine visited the HB CBD Wellness centre to review the complimentary treatment.
It must be said that the co-founder of HB CBD Wellness clinic Heather Bird immersed herself into the world of the CBD. Together with her business partner James Dempsey, Heather is spreading the knowledge and experience with their customers. Heather is also taking part in wellbeing conferences speaking about the benefits of the CBD oil.
The beauty procedure starts with a cleanse and exfoliation. Nothing goes to waste when it comes to the hemp plant – the exfoliation product uses organic hemp fibres to gently remove old layers of skin and stimulate the blood circulation.
The calming CBD oil massage will kick start the removal of toxins by stimulating the lymphatic system while at the same time distressing your mind.
The next step is an invigorating CBD face mask – a fine moist sheet soaked in Orange-oil infused CBD. The essential oils stimulate the circulation and give your skin an instant warm glow. A quick jade roller massage will help to further reduce puffiness and inflammation due to stagnation of the lymphatic system.
The CBD moisturiser is then gently applied and massaged to finish off the treatment.
But the CBD experience doesn’t end there. You will be offered CBD tea and enjoy the benefits of the Oxygen chamber.
Speaking of your home beauty regiment, the skillful and experienced CBD beauticians at the HB CBD Wellness centre will be able to recommend you the best CBD beauty products to use at home.
