Cannabis Is the Cure for Your Skin. Here's Why.

Earlier this year, skincare sales surpassed makeup sales for the first time ever in the US. This trend continues its upward trajectory as the clean skincare movement takes shape and beauty standards evolve.  Consumers are opting for products that hydrate, tone, renew and regenerate their skin without the harmful chemicals, and rightly so. Plants do the job as well or better and safely — and one plant in particular does more than most: Cannabis.    The cannabis plant is durable, versatile, and incredibly healing — and as our Green Bee followers know, it can be used without the psychoactive effects, as with all of our skin-care and body-care products. When combined with other natural plant-based ingredients, cannabis can remedy many different types of skin issues. We explain how cannabis can...

Tips for the new season of self-care

We said good-bye this week to both a watershed and unceremonious season of heat. On one hand, we experienced what felt like the longest, hottest summer ever; on the other, the season changed to fall in the blink of an eye. It’s hard to pinpoint the changes our bodies and minds go through while the world is turning, but the twists and turns of life eventually catch up to us — and that can mean aches and pains.  Turning to natural healing components is the way to go because your body actually knows how to heal itself; sometimes we just need a little boost from Mother Nature. Enter Green Bee Deep Calm Massage & Body Oil. While we certainly encourage its...

How to Use a Face Serum in a Simple 3-Step Skincare Routine

When you consider all the stressors your skin is exposed to every day, you realize how amazingly resilient it is. In general, our skin is durable and thrives in its natural state. But most of us experience imbalances in our skin — our body’s largest organ — fairly often: when we’re stressed, when we eat certain foods, when it’s too hot or cold or dry outside, seasonally, when we're exposed to pollutants in the air, when our bodies go through hormonal changes (hello teen and perimenopausal years), and for many other reasons. Finding balance naturally using clean, plant-based ingredients found in nature is your best bet.  Phytocannabinoids in cannabis naturally balance our skin no matter what’s causing the imbalance, because they bind with our body’s...

Beauty, biology and why a Green Bee regimen is what your skin’s been missing

Quick! Think of everything you learned about skin in grade school. You may remember it has three layers: 1) the epidermis on the outside, 2) the dermis on the inside (hello hair, oil, and sweat glands), and 3) the hypodermis underneath it all.   Many of us don’t think of our skin as this massive organ, but it’s our largest organ and our body’s first line of protection, so it’s important to care for it as tenderly as we do our hearts and minds. In reality, most of us think of our skin in terms of how we look. Anti-aging creams and promises of forever “younger skin” have been the topic of conversation since the dawn of marketing and messaging....

My skincare product label has a Prop 65 warning. Should I worry?

While well-intentioned, California's Prop 65 — officially “The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” — has led to unintended consequences, especially when it comes to products made with the cannabis plant, including Green Bee Botanicals skincare.    We appreciate this law; it's meant to inform California consumers about food, water, dietary supplements, and other consumable products that may have ingredients that can cause cancer or birth defects.  Green Bee Botanicals products are actually exempt from Prop 65 and do not require this warning. However, because some cannabis dispensaries will not sell products without this warning — and our products currently can be bought only from dispensaries — we include it.  The important thing to know is that:  All of our...
