Hemp has been known for thousands of years as one of the oldest medicinal and useful plants. The plant is used all over the world because of its versatile use. For some years now, hemp cream, hemp ointments as well as hemp lotions with CBD content have been increasingly conquering the market. And also other hemp products like CBD oils are gaining great popularity.
This has several good reasons. Science is constantly uncovering new positive findings related to the cannabis plant. It is important to understand the effects of hemp and its herbal ingredients. The contained cannabidiol (CBD) is the main actor here.
CBD is legal in Germany and has no psychoactive effects. Quite the contrary.
CBD is said to have relaxing, antispasmodic and pain-relieving effects. This also makes cannabidiol relevant for the use on our skin - the largest human sense organ.
The basis of a hemp balms is hemp seed oil or another high-quality oil. In balms and especially hemp balms, the composition of the ingredients is highly concentrated. Hemp balm is therefore much more viscous than a lotion or a hemp cream. Also the most important ingredient, the cannabidiol, is found in hemp balms in a high concentration.
Other important ingredients are valuable vegetable oils such as jojoba oil or coconut oil, rich shea butter, essential oils and plant aroma extracts. These additionally nourish the skin with moisture and support the effect of cannabidiol.
Hemp balm does not lead to any psychoactive effects as it contains hardly any THC. THC is the part of cannabis that is responsible for the well-known 'high'. In hemp balms, however, only the cannabinoid CBD and its additional herbal ingredients are effective.
All products are manufactured according to strict EU guidelines and undergo regular controls to meet our high standards.
The skin is the largest sensory organ in the human body. In an adult human being, the surface area of the skin would be between one and a half and two square meters.
This large area acts as a protective shield against external aggressors. The skin protects everything underneath, such as important organs. If this protective shield is damaged, the skin reacts with rashes, pain or inflammation.
Hemp balm can help with these signs and help the skin to regain its balance to restore its full protective function.
Medical cannabis has been used in pain therapy for a long time. Patients report a decrease in pain intensity after treatment. Studies have proven that cannabidiol is particularly effective against muscle pain and inflammation.
However, research on the effects of cannabinoids is far from complete.
Due to its ingredients, especially the high content of cannabidiol (CBD), hemp balm can have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Especially the contained hemp seed oil can soothe itching and redness, which is why hemp oil is also very suitable for the production of cosmetics. Our house brand HERBLIZ also uses CBD in wellness and bath products such as bath additives, bath bombs or massage oils - for the perfect relaxation effect for stressed muscles and skin.
Hemp balm is particularly suitable for local, topical application on the skin. The skin absorbs the active agents directly. This is due to the body's own endocannabinoid system, about which we have already published a whole article on our blog.
Via the body’s receptors in the skin, hemp balm can provide relief in case of different skin conditions when applied locally.
At New Garden Lab you can choose between different hemp balms.
