CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant and does not cause a euphoric “high” like it’s sister-compound, tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. When applied topically, CBD jumpstarts your skin’s ability to regenerate itself on a cellular level. CBD offers a significant advantage for proposed medicinal uses and self-care products (ahem…CAUSE+MEDIC) due to its strong anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
While THC is usually seen as the high-producing, psychoactive component of cannabis, this doesn’t mean that THC is only useful for that purpose. When CBD is paired with THC they act as the yin and yang of cannabis therapeutics; balanced, powerful, and synergistic. Both molecules are strong individually, but they are truly best together. For these reasons, we offer two unique and natural product lines: a CBD-only line and a CBD/THC line. The CBD and THC line is the best of both worlds, a combination of science, beauty, and natural ingredients all infused together to help you achieve flawless skin.
Your skin's receptors (referred to as CB2) are activated by your body's own endocannabinoids which allow your skin to regenerate on a cellular level. These receptors can also be activated by outside sources such as, you guessed it, THC/CBD or phytocannbinoids. THC and CBD actually stimulate cellular turnover quicker than your body does on its own. What does this mean for your skin? Well by speeding up the process of skin regeneration we can slow down the effects of aging, various skin conditions, and even repair skin damage (shout out to all you sun worshipping, party monsters out there!)
No. Due to the very low percentage of THC used in each product and the fact that our products are all topicals (THC does not hit the blood stream), all our products do not produce any psychoactive effects when used as directed (for external use ONLY.)
We recommend that you consult your physician before using any of our products during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
As with all medications, please consult with your physician regarding the potential interactions between cannabis topicals and other medications.
Our products, when used as directed, will not show up drug tests. Please remember all of our products are for external use only and should never, we repeat, NEVER be ingested.
No. All of our products are botanical-based and free of harmful ingredients. A few select products do have light fragrance but those scents are obtained by way of essential oils and are chosen for their healing properties.
We always use organic ingredients when available.
NO WAY! Not now, not ever! We love animals and therefore only test our products on ourselves and the solid friends/family who volunteer for the “cause”. All of our products are vegan except for Lip Rx which contains ethically-sourced beeswax.
Our CBD skincare products and CBD body products (Cannabliss) are available for purchase on our website and at a few select retailers. Keep in mind that these products are infused with high-quality botanicals and the CBD extract only. This means our CBD-only products are available to everyone in any state regardless if that state allows legal cannabis. Since these products do not contain THC and are topicals, they are completely legal!
Because of the strict legal limitations for THC, CAUSE+MEDIC’s alternative THC product line is exclusively available at licensed dispensaries in the state of Colorado and are only for adults 21 and over.
As of right now marijuana products purchased in Colorado must remain within the state of Colorado. Keep an eye out for future expansion to other states that have passed recreational and medical marijuana sales in the future. In the meantime, give our CBD-only line as gifts to friends, indulge yourself, or stock-pile our products for the zombie apocalypse! We don’t judge!
We are completely dedicated to your health and satisfaction! If for any reason you are unsatisfied with our product, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
