Chef Josh Horrigan, owner of Annabelle’s Garden, breaks down what CBD (cannabidiol) is, why it’s beneficial for your health and beauty, and how it interacts with your body to combat common ailments through this Fox News segment.
Horrigan brings up the world-winning question he knows viewers are dying to hear the answer to right off the bat:
Is CBD legal? Will CBD get me high?
The answers: Yes, CBD is legal. So long as it contains no more than 0.3 percent THC and is derived from hemp, CBD is legal. And no, CBD will not get you high. There are no psychoactive components involved in the cannabinoid. The cannabinoid that is responsible for giving people a high is THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol.
“CBD is derived from hemp, the same family as econashia and hops. The products are completely safe for people to use.”
As Horrigan displays his skincare and beauty products, he explains how CBD targets inflammation in your skin, balancing out the skin’s natural oils, preventing clogging from occurring and “keeping the skin maintaining its natural balance.”
Home remedy face masks including avocado and spirulina offer multiple nutrients for your skin, while CBD plays the role of fighting redness and irritation of the skin, stating the compound is “antibacterial and antimicrobial,” helping your skin heal itself naturally.
The chef touches a bit on CBD capsules, which are also on display, explaining that people are taking them for the following reasons: anxiety, pain and inflammation of the joints, It’s used for any form of human ailment.
