Save Your Skin with CBD

We know that cannabidiol (CBD) has anti-seizure and anti-tumor properties, but its medicinal benefits don’t stop there. Topical CBD treatments can improve your physical health from the outside in. The natural compound has the ability to aid in the improvement of the overall health and appearance of your skin!

How it works:

Topical application of CBD (oil) creates a unique and positive interaction with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which controls and cares for your skin cells. From preservation to prevention, here are some incredible ways CBD can help save your skin from any harmful or irritating agents.

1. Youthful Skin Maintenance

CBD possesses significant anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and neuroprotective traits meaning it protects the skin of any damage from free radicals. These free radicals include UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants that can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Fight against these aging factors with the consistent use of our CBD Cream in your daily skin regimen.

2. Oil Control

Who would have thought a CBD moisturizer could control your oil? Suffering from oily skin is no walk in the park, and most people are hesitant to follow the advice of moisturizing their skin for fear of increasing the amount of oil on their skin. When you deprive your skin from moisture, you’re actually encouraging the oil glands to produce excessive oil for your skin. In the case of cannabis, using CBD infused products helps to decrease the over production of oil.

3. Acne Repair

Last but not least, the most common skin issue among all ages – acne. Oil control plays a huge role in managing acne. The oil that creates those blemishes is known as sebum, which excretes rough sebaceous glands. But when dirt and clogged pores get in the way, the sebum mixes with bacteria and becomes a blemish. When put to the test, we discovered that when applying non-psychoactive CBD to the endocannabinoid receptors of the skin, this oil production stopped and acne faded away. Further, when applied on the affected area directly, the production of sebocytes decreased significantly. So your constant search for spot treatments can end right here. Get to the root of your blemishes before they surface.

Your skin is constantly being challenged by environmental and personal skin care issues. Incorporating CBD infused products into your daily routine, may help to relieve some of those problems.

All of CBD Essentials products are sourced from whole flower cannabis plants, non-psychoactive, and are known to have significant therapeutic benefits. To ensure consistency and quality, our topicals are lab formulated, and third party tested.

The History of Medical Cannabis

Cannabis is a truly ancient medicine. For as long as humanity has cultivated cannabis sativa—and our relationship with cannabis stretches back thousand of years—we’ve been using the plant for its potent medical benefits. Here’s a brief examination of the history of medical cannabis.

China
Some of the earliest references to medical cannabis pop up in China. In 2737 B.C., the Chinese emperor Shen Neng prescribed marijuana tea as a treatment for a wide array of maladies, including malaria, gout, rheumatism and—rather laughably—memory loss. By around 200 B.C., Chinese farmers had successfully cultivated hemp, using it to make everything from clothing to rope and, of course, medicine, according to Psychology Today. In 200 A.D., the Chinese medical book, Shennong Bencaojing, noted that cannabis could be used as an anesthetic. Apparently, the drug could be mixed with wine, and a patient would drink the cannabis-wine prior to surgery. Physicians also used cannabis oil, leaves, and its roots to treat tapeworms, constipation, and blood clots. Cannabis’ popularity as a medicinal drug bloomed in Asia, and eventually over the course of several hundred years, medical cannabis made its way outside of China probably via merchants and traders, spreading into other regions, such as India.

India
Bhang is an Indian drink made from cannabis paste, milk, ghee, and various spices. According to Medical Daily, bhang is referred to in the fourth book of the Vedas as having the ability to “release an individual from anxiety.” It could also boost a person’s mood, sharpen their mental prowess, and “remove wind and phlegm.” Bhang was even used to treat sunstroke and dysentery, as well. From around 1400 B.C. to 1600 B.C., medical cannabis made its way out of Asia and into the Middle East and Africa. Archeologists have found papyrus scrolls dating from around 1500 B.C. that list medical cannabis as a valuable medicine for the treatment of inflammation. Since Islam generally forbids the consumption of alcohol, cannabis became popular both as a recreational drug and as a medicine. Apparently, cannabis did appear in medieval Europe, and physicians sometimes used the plant to treat lung ailments—such as coughs—as well as tumors and jaundice. Medieval physicians though believed that overconsumption of cannabis could cause sterility, so they often warned against excessive use.

The Americas
When the Spanish conquered the New World in the late 1500s, they brought cannabis to South America. However, cannabis never really took hold in the early American colonies—colonial farmers seemed to exclusively grow hemp. The plant was mostly used to make clothes, bags, rope, and paper. Beginning in the early 17th century and moving into the 18th century, American physicians began noting that hemp roots and seeds could be used to treat incontinence, inflammation, and various venereal diseases. An Irish doctor named William O’Shaughnessy helped to increase cannabis’ popularity in both the U.S. and England—he served as a physician with the British East India Company, and he witnessed firsthand how cannabis could be used to treat both rheumatism and nausea. By the early 1900s, pharmaceutical companies often added cannabis to various medicines and food items.

Unfortunately, increased federal regulations on medicinal items—along with anti-immigration fears of cannabis-smoking Central American migrants—helped to shift American public opinion on cannabis in the early 20th century. Eventually, cannabis went from being an important medicinal plant to a feared narcotic—though those fears were truly unfounded. However, as exhibited by cannabis’ rather unique history, physicians across the world have lauded medical cannabis for its health benefits for thousands of years. It’s only a matter of time until public opinion in the U.S. shifts completely, and the entirety of the nation begins to hopefully respect cannabis for the critical medical resource that it is.

Giving Back to Female Entrepreneurs: Amber products announces their support of iFundWomen

Brought to you from the amberproducts.com blog – 

We are excited to announce our support of iFundWomen, a new crowdfunding platform for women-led startups and small businesses. Giving Back to Female Entrepreneurs Their mission is to close the funding gap for female entrepreneurs so they can get their businesses off the ground and we think that is amazing.

The number of women-owned businesses grew 30% from 2007-2012, which means that women are majority owners in roughly 36% of all US businesses.  Despite these amazing gains, women still only receive 2-6% of venture capital funding. Women create companies with 50% less capital and iFundWomen wants to change that.

Amber Products has been working with forward thinking, hard working and talented women entrepreneurs for over 35 years, making iFundWomen a perfect alignment for our company. We believe in supporting women who believe in themselves and their dreams. Amber Products wants to help make those aspirations a reality through the iFundWomen platform. We want to support women who believe in themselves and their dreams and a company that helps them make those dreams a reality.

In a recently published post, iFundWomen CRO, Concetta Rand, admitted, “I never thought female entrepreneurs were any different than just ‘entrepreneurs’ until I joined my first tech startup.” Until that time she had been surrounded by strong female co-workers and mentors and didn’t realize the plight of women struggling to make their own business goals happen.

“As soon as I joined the iFundWomen team, I got the opportunity to speak with hundreds of female founders and business owners, hearing firsthand the obstacles they encounter while getting their businesses off the ground.  When I think about what holds back the potential of female entrepreneurship – access to capital, coaches and mentors, role models to emulate –  iFundWomen addresses each of them individually and holistically.  We offer dedicated coaching services, we have a Slack community full of peer mentors, we publish success stories so aspiring entrepreneurs have role models, and we get money into the hands of women so they can do incredible things.”

No matter what your dream job may be, Amber Products is proud to support your efforts to stand on top of your own mountain.
