When contemplating using cannabis in ShaNuWater Fountain of Youth's moisturizing products, I was hesitant and needed clarification. We are a Muslim owned business and there are certain things we cannot consume not use on our bodies, intoxicants such as alcohol and marijuana. But what about hemp? I've been reading product labels and hearing a lot about CBD, Cannibas Oil, and the benefits.
So I started reading articles to have my questions answered.
The first question I asked, “Is will the ingredients from cannabis seep into the skin and make you high. And the second, “Is it halal?
Let's cover the halal question first.
According to “A broad spectrum of the hemp plant used to enhance bioavailability and offer a full-plant CBD experience without any psychoactive effects. These oils are generally considered halal.” Feb 11, 2022.
Now to the first question. The answer is no, and here’s why. What makes CBD oil halal? The THC terpenes and other ingredients that make you feel high are removed from the hemp plant during the refinery process. Therefore CBD and MCT oil are, considered 100% pure when made with halal carrier oils: Grapeseed, Coconut, Hemp Seed, Olive Oil, etc.
Did you know there are over 80 varieties of cannabinoid plants? * Also, endocannabinoids exist within our system naturally, without using cannabis.
*Pro Tip: “Some manufacturers will sell a CBD isolate product that contains no THC, but may still be formulated with non-halal ingredients such as gelatin, dye, and alcohol.
Make sure to always check the ingredients and avoid purchases without detailed lab reports verifying the purity of the CBD isolate and the presence of halal-friendly ingredients.”~ The Scotsman.
The Benefits of CBD Oil
Because of its great absorption, those who suffer from arthritis the oil have proved helpful as an anti-inflammatory, as well for acne, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.
“Scientists have also found that CBD improves the production of collagen, making the skin and muscles firmer and connective tissue and bones stronger. CBD also improves the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and skin discoloration, soothes skin, and reduces the appearance of irritation, it may be useful for people with sensitive skin.
CBD is an ingredient ShaNuWater Fountain of Youth can stand behind and incorporate this Halal oil into its product formulations.
