What is hemp?

Hemp is a fascinating plant. It is the most versatile of all plants: paper, textile, food, energy, medicine, insulation and also cosmetics. It is also the most UV, salt and moisture resistant fiber. 

The kannabis plant is multi-sectoral, it has wellness, medical, industrial and recreational uses. This plant holds a treasure of history. 


CBD from the flowers of cannabis sativa (useful hemp, sown or cultivated) is recognized by the European cosmetic catalog for its anti-inflammatory, anti-seborrheic, antioxidant and nutritive virtues. Hemp oil is derived from the seeds of the plant, it rebuilds the protective hydrolipidic film of the epidermis thanks to the omegas 3 and 6 that compose them. This oil moisturizes the skin and protects it from external aggressions. The stem, leaves and roots are also used for their various qualities. 

The WHO Expert Committee on Drug Dependence concluded in November 2017 that the pure consumption of cannabidiol (CBD) does not cause potential abuse, nor does it cause harm to health.

In conclusion, it is safe for oral and dermal use. Hemp oil is legal, it can be used and sold in skin care products.
