The cannabis plant is not just confined to marijuana which is rich in THC chemical compound that gives you the psychoactive “high” feelings. There is another breed of this plant which is known as hemp. There are numerous varieties of chemical compounds present in the cannabis plant most of which are still undiscovered. However, the chemical compound CBD is proved to be beneficial in many aspects in recent years. Hemp is rich in CBD and contains less than 0.3% THC. CBD does not give your brain the psychoactive rush at all. And so, this area, grabs researchers’ attention the most and has also opened booming opportunities for using hemp in various products such as makeup, food supplements and even medicine.

Hemp in Makeup.

Our prime object of discussion today is using hemp in makeup products. Yes, it has been legalized to make industrialized use of cannabis plants in the hemp form in the majority of states. Its use in cosmetics has lesser restrictions in most countries than that of restriction on hemp or CBD infused products in foods or supplements or medicines. 

Not only has the use of hemp in cosmetics become legalized but it has also become fan-favorite of many consumers making the emergence of hemp-line cosmetic industries more widespread by the day. Popular brands such as NYX and Body Shop has launched hemp-infused beauty products and is continuing to expand in doing so. 

The reason for hemp cosmetics is becoming so popular is because of its evident benefits. It has been clinically proved for hemp to be rich in vitamins A and C and E. The hemp seed oils are also enriched balanced and high essential fatty acid oils that are soothing to the skin with skin rejuvenating properties. That is why this particular extract is increasingly being used in lotions, body washes, lip balms, shampoos, conditioners and even in massage oils.  The oil also contains the rare gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which can be used in sunscreen for its effective UV protection properties. It is also rich in amino acid and multiple antioxidant components. As a result, hemp-based products work excellently for people with sensitive skin. It also acts as an effective skin-soothing component against burns, itches, rashes or allergies. 

Hemp seed oils have also become popular for being used in makeup products such as lipstick, mascara, highlighters, etc. it has grabbed considerable consumer attention firstly because of its newness and secondly because of the benefits imposed by it on the skin making you look both pretty and taking care of your skin at the same time. 

It is however a common misconception held by many on the ethics regarding usage of cannabis-infused makeup and beauty products. But the more scientific research is made on this, the more logics are being made against such ethical misconceptions. Hence, these products are being made and used increasingly in the market.

Top ten beauty lines to use hemp in beauty products.

Congress is many countries that have passed a bill on the legalization of industrial hemp production that is high in CBD and has significantly low THC content. At the same time, the restriction on hemp-infused products is more lenient when it comes to cosmetics. And so, within the US alone there has been the establishment of companies such as Dr. Bronner’s, Hippie Butter, Skinvisible Pharmaceuticals, CannaSkin, etc. the aforementioned companies manufacture products that are sole of the cannabis-line including makeup products as well as skincare ones. They are becoming signature products with time because of clinically proved benefits that have also been ensured by consumers. 

Other existing companies such as L’oreal, Body Shop, Lush and NYX also introduced cannabis-infused products. 

Lush introduced an organic hair treatment formula infused with hemp oil. Maison Margiela made a unique toilette that has the essence of cannabis in it. Milk Makeup brought a revolutionary Kush High Volume Mascara that is derived from hemp seed oil which is reputed to boost your eyelashes and also improve the growth of your lashes while ensuring you have the perfect fresh eye look. This product has become so popular that many would use this new product over their regularly used ones. Body Shop has brought about its best-selling hand cream with antibacterial properties because of the hemp oil essence in it. This product is sold every nine seconds around the globe. Body Shop also launched other hemp-infused products such as essential oils, masks, face cream, etc. Popular beauty lines such as NYX launched separate hemp-infused product lines which consist of a face primer, lip balm, etc. the hemp-infused roll-on highlighter by Kaja has also become a popular product.

Due to legalization issues, such products are not widely available everywhere. However, these products have gained significant popularity in the states in which their use is legalized. The fact that such products are available in Sephora pretty much explains its validation. Even though medical use and benefits of CBD are still in question because of its possible side effects, such factors are out of the question when it comes to beauty products.

The cannabis industry has undergone a remarkable evolution, continually pushing the boundaries of innovation to meet diverse consumer preferences and needs. In recent times, six standout cannabis products have captured the hearts of enthusiasts and carved out their place in the limelight. While the smoke vape is a game-changer, the other five equally captivating products deserve exploration. Join us as we delve into these six cannabis products steadily gaining popularity and transforming the industry.

CBD Oil: Nature’s Therapeutic Treasure

In the dynamic world of cannabis, CBD oil takes center stage as a revered and widely discussed product. Renowned for its myriad benefits, CBD oil has garnered a global following. Unlike other cannabis products, CBD oil is THC-free, offering the advantages of cannabis without intoxication. Among its merits are anxiety reduction, pain relief, and improved sleep quality. With the potential to enhance overall well-being, CBD oil’s demand is on a continuous ascent.

Edibles: A Delicious Revolution

Edibles are rapidly gaining traction among those seeking the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the need to smoke. The array of edibles is vast, ranging from delectable options like brownies and gummies to tea and popcorn. Their discreet nature allows individuals to consume them inconspicuously, and their effects tend to last longer compared to traditional smoking methods. As the demand for cannabis products rises, edibles have firmly established themselves in the industry.

Tinctures: A Versatile Elixir

Tinctures have emerged as a preferred choice among cannabis enthusiasts and advocates. Created by extracting active cannabis compounds using alcohol or glycerin, tinctures provide a discreet way to achieve rapid absorption by placing them under the tongue. Precise dosing and ease of use set tinctures apart from other cannabis products. Whether you seek natural pain relief, anxiety reduction, or a relaxing interlude, tinctures are a top choice for many cannabis users.

Vapes: A Breath of Fresh Air

Vape pens have taken center stage in the cannabis industry, celebrated for their portability, discretion, and a wide range of flavours. Vape pen technology has advanced significantly, allowing for precise temperature control and personalized dosage settings. For those preferring a smoke-free alternative to traditional cannabis consumption, vaping has become the preferred choice. Whether on the go or at home, vapes make cannabis consumption more accessible and enjoyable than ever before.

Topicals: Nourishing Through the Skin

Topicals, a recent addition to the world of cannabis products, have quickly gained favour among consumers. These products are applied to the skin, offering targeted relief for various issues, including pain, inflammation, and skincare concerns. Unlike other cannabis products, topicals do not induce a psychoactive effect, making them ideal for those seeking the benefits of cannabis without feeling altered. Ongoing research into their potential uses is expected to increase the popularity of topicals in the cannabis industry.

Concentrates: The Potent Powerhouses

Concentrates have taken the cannabis industry by storm, celebrated as one of the most ground-breaking products in recent years. Available in forms such as wax, shatter, and oil, concentrates have won over seasoned cannabis enthusiasts. Although their strength may give some pause, experienced users continuously seek new and exciting ways to explore the cannabis experience. Concentrates are clearly making a lasting impact on the industry, with no signs of slowing down.

As the cannabis industry continues to evolve, fuelled by the popularity of innovative products, it’s no surprise that new offerings continually emerge. From topicals to edibles, the industry has transcended traditional flowers and hash. The combined impact of legalization and growing public acceptance has paved the way for creative creations in both recreational and medical cannabis sectors. As we witness this ever-evolving industry, it’s an exciting journey to anticipate the emergence of new cannabis products that will leave an indelible mark on consumers and the industry as a whole.

Embracing Freedom: Burna Boy’s $5 Million Dubai Offer Rejection

Published

By

Burna Boy, the celebrated Afro-fusion Grammy awarded artist from Nigeria, made headlines when he courageously declined a staggering $5 million performance offer in Dubai. What fueled this remarkable decision? His unwavering passion for personal freedom and an unapologetic commitment to his values.

In a  viral video Burna Boy can be seen jamming with his band , during this impromptu performance he shocked his fans by revealing that he had rejected a multimillion-dollar offer to perform in Dubai due to a seemingly unconventional reason – his desire to smoke weed.

Burna Boy has always been vocal about his affection for marijuana, which he views as a tool for self-expression and creative inspiration. However, there was a significant catch to the Dubai offer – the stringent anti-drug laws that would prohibit him from indulging in his passion while on stage.

Burna Boy’s refusal of the offer was an unequivocal stance in defense of his artistic freedom. This decision demonstrated his unwavering dedication to his values, even as he ventured into the cannabis industry, introducing his own brand, BRKFAST, in the United States just last year.

Burna Boy’s choice evoked a mix of responses. Some lauded him for remaining true to his principles, viewing it as a testament to his authenticity as an artist. In contrast, others questioned his decision, highlighting the substantial financial security he sacrificed. Nevertheless, Burna Boy’s resolute decision underscored his commitment to his craft and personal values.

Though he might have forfeited a substantial $5 million, Burna Boy’s integrity remained. His unwavering commitment to his principles continues to inspire those who place artistic freedom above material gain. His journey serves as a poignant reminder that personal principles can often hold more value than monetary wealth, underscoring the potency of individuality and the courage to uphold one’s convictions, irrespective of the cost.

In the end, it was about more than just declining a lucrative booking for Burna Boy. It was about staying authentic to himself, a choice that he deemed priceless.
