high Beauty: A Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil-Based Beauty Line
CBD oil has certainly made its way into mainstream culture rather quickly. As an on-going education into what it is, we were excited to learn more about something totally different that offers a host of benefits for the skin. A Cannabis sativa seed oil-based beauty line, high is formulated in combination with certified organic plant oils, high-potency antioxidants and pure plant essential oils for healthy, beautiful skin. They are also free of THC and CBD that is designed to deliver the high-powdered benefits from the Cannabis saliva plant that works to help calm the skin, portent with antioxidants and balance all skin types.
We have been testing out the high expectations cannabis facial oil and have been loving it as a night oil. Overtime, we have seen some serious results as the oil as been repairing and replenishing the skin. We also love how lightweight it feels that we love applying on our face and neck. Additionally, the line works to calm inflammation, balance, and hydrate the skin.
To learn more, we spoke with Melissa, the founder of high. Read on to learn more about this innovative line below:
Interview with Founder of high
Wellness Patterns: How did the idea for high come about?
high: I’ve been in the skincare/beauty industry for 20 years and high® is the culmination of my career. Along my journey, I jumped exuberantly into all the related aspects of brand development in the beauty industry. I became a highly sought after formulator but most importantly I developed a knack for knowing what could be the next big thing in the industry and understanding where the “white space” was in an otherwise crowded and competitive market arena.
high® delivers the high-powered benefits from nature’s most revolutionary plant, cannabis sativa seed oil, an ingredient that I believe is only beginning to have its true potential understood.
Wellness Patterns: What are some common misconceptions about CBD?
high: I think that one of the common misconceptions about CBD is that it is only one of 2 ingredients (CBD & THC) that are beneficial for beauty and wellness products from the cannabis plant. With any product I ever formulate for high®, I want to use the most beneficial ingredients from the cannabis sativa plant that fit the purpose of the product. Our current line of products is for your everyday skincare routine. Cannabis sativa seed oil has one of the highest essential fatty acid profiles, it’s an adaptogen, and has antioxidant properties which are essential for helping to calm inflammation, balancing all skin types, and providing protection, hydration, and replenishment for healthy, beautiful skin.
Wellness Patterns: How can high benefit the skin?
high: We don’t use CBD in our skincare formulations, high® is THC and CBD free. We use cannabis sativa seed oil. We often get thrown into the mix with other cannabis brands that contain CBD but I feel that CBD is like the wild, wild west! There is still so much research to be conducted and regulation to be built to help protect consumers and ensure that it is being used properly to treat different conditions that it has appropriate uses for. It is important to me that the right ingredients are used for the right purpose and I believe the cannabis sativa seed oil is an essential ingredient for your everyday skin care.
Wellness Patterns: How is high different from what’s out there?
high: high® is formulated using cannabis sativa seed oil and is free of THC and CBD! This is our unique point of difference within the cannabis world that is currently flooded with so many cannabis products.
Wellness Patterns: Tell us about some of the products in the line?
high: As of August 2019 we have two products available. We have our high expectations Cannabis Facial Oil and our high five Cannabis Facial Moisturizer. Our high expectations Cannabis Facial Oil is formulated to be a part of your evening skincare routine, providing intensive repair and replenishment. High five Cannabis Facial Moisturizer is the everyday vitamin your skin needs; it will clam, balance, protect, hydrate, and replenish your skin.
On September 3, we will be launching two additional products which will include our high priority Cannabis Cleansing Foam, high eye-Q Cannabis Eye Gel, and high maintenance Cannabis Peeling Mask. All products will be available on our website: www.highbeauty.com. Making your skin a priority is a must and with our high priority Cannabis Cleansing Foam you are doing just that; it removes makeup and impurities, hydrates and refreshes. Our high eye-Q Cannabis Eye Gel will smooth, hydrate and cool the delicate skin around your eyes, including your eye lids, helping to reduce puffiness and fine lines. Then rounding out our product line is the high maintenance Cannabis Peeling Mask which is a weekly treatment that will purify, resurface, and smooth your skin. Say high to beautiful skin!
