Whatever stigmas might have been surrounding using cannabis in skin care, they’re gradually vanishing.
CBD appeal products are ending up being mainstream: merchants like Sephora are devoting entire walls to CBD brands, and stars are endorsing and even introducing their own lines of cannabidiol-infused cosmetics.
Now a brand-new trend is poised to take control of the marketplace: skincare items instilled with cannabis root.
According to Jennifer Grant, this (typically disposed of) part of the marijuana plant is abundant in anti-inflammatory and other recovery substances, making it the perfect active ingredient for her most current venture– an e-commerce skincare business.
The brand is called empyri, and it was released last month, with three products: a moisturizer, toner, and cleanser. All the products are instilled with marijuana root, which Grant, a biomedical engineer, business owner, and mother of three, sources from Ontario farmers.
Marijuana roots don’t include THC or CBD but are abundant in triterpenoids and monoterpenes, reported to have a large range of health advantages. In reality, this part of the plant has been used in Chinese medication for over a thousand years. It’s also valued by conventional medication as treatment for inflammation, arthritis, gout, STDs, and other conditions.
In her research, Grant discovered that some marijuana roots can include up to 23% of friedelin (an effective anti-inflammatory representative) and as much as 80% of carvone. Carvone is a monoterpene with decongestant and antiviral effects.
More significantly, the procurement and processing of the cannabis root does not fall under the Marijuana Act, meaning that Grant is enabled to promote, package, and offer her items on the consumer market free of the limitations that other weed business face.
Grant does not prepare to stop here. She hopes to broaden her offer of cannabis-root items to consist of a line for men and cannabis root-infused teas as soon as Health Canada gives the all-clear.
