CBD (Cannabidiol) is a non- psychoactive chemical compound found in Cannabis, both in hemp and marijuana plant species. Antedotum Skincare Products contain CBD harvested from industrial hemp bred to meet the minimum THC content (less than 0.3%) federally mandated in the U.S.
Yes! As part of The Farm Act of 2018, CBD derived from industrial hemp is now legal on the federal level in the United States, as long it contains 0.3% or less THC. Antedotum Skincare Products contain CBD with THC levels that meet federal standards confirmed by a third-party laboratory test.
According to an April 2019 article published in Allure, “Topical CBD’s most enticing attributes are its anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain-killing) properties. Scientists are finding more evidence that it can treat dry skin, psoriasis, and eczema.”
Full-Spectrum CBD product contains all elements of the industrial hemp plant, including up to 0.3% THC. Antedotum Skincare Products contain full-spectrum CBD derived from organic industrial hemp plants.
Broad-spectrum CBD product contains every element of the industrial hemp plant (all terpenes and cannabinoids), except THC. Isolate CBD product contains only CBD, with all other cannabinoids removed. Full-Spectrum CBD product contains all of the elements of the industrial hemp plant.
Our 500mg Antedotum CBD Complex has been meticulously formulated from USA grown organic hemp plants, powerful botanicals, and clean ingredients to provide an elevated skincare experience for all skin types. Our products are vegan, responsibly sourced and third party lab tested.
According to UCLA Health, “In the 1990’s, scientists discovered endocannabinoids, the natural cannabis-like molecules produced by the human body. Scientists began to realize cannabis exerted its effects, in part, by mimicking our endocannabinoids.”
It appears the main function of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain bodily homeostasis—biological harmony in response to changes in the environment. We now know the endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function.

Taxonomic investigation revealed that the endocannabinoid system is incredibly old, having evolved over 500 million years ago. Moreover, it is present in all vertebrates—mammals, bird, reptiles, amphibians, fish, etc, all produce endocannabinoids!

Research initially suggested endocannabinoid receptors were only present in the brain and nerves, but scientists later found that the receptors are present throughout the body, including our skin, immune cells, bone, fat tissue, liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, heart, blood vessels, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract.

Any reputable CBD product should have a Certificate of Analysis (COA) prepared by a third-party lab. Used to confirm that THC levels are below 0.3% and no heavy metals are present. Antedotum Skincare Products undergo third-party lab testing and each SKU has its own COA as part of our standard production process.
