CANNABIS 101: Understanding The Green Goddess Of The Plant World

Meet Cannabis. A beautiful medicinal plant whose true healing wonders are just starting to be known. What we know so far is that its many parts and constituents aid in everything from anxiety to physical pain management to incredible skin care benefits and beautifying properties. Continue reading to learn more about the different components that make up this long misunderstood Green Goddess of the plant world.


Hemp is a variety of cannabis that includes less than .3% THC. The seeds of the hemp plant are incredibly rich in Omega fatty acids and reparative Gamma Linolenic acids to nourish and restore the skin. When pressed into a non-comedogenic oil, the formula deeply moisturizes the complexion, soothes visible redness and irritation and prevents visible signs of aging. Hemp Seed Oil (also known as Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil) is a key ingredient in Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil.


Scientists have identified over 200 terpene varieties in cannabis. Terpenes determine the strain’s aroma. They have powerful aromatherapy and mind-calming benefits.

The most highly concentrated cannabinoid, THC is associated with the psychoactive effects of cannabis and impacts the chemical receptors in the brain and nervous systems that control mood, appetite, memory, pain sensations, and psychoactive perception. THC is not present in Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil.


This non-psychoactive cannabinoid affects the physical, not the cerebral, and is commonly used to treat anxiety, PTSD, pain, and inflammation. CBD is a natural alternative to synthetic pain and anxiety relief and we have experienced firsthand how effective it is at soothing the complexion and combats the appearance of inflammation caused by rosacea and acne. CBD is not present in this version of Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil, but it will be present in a +CBD version coming soon to Washington state to start…
