Our Interview With High Beauty

We interview high beauty and get the scoop on the latest trend in beauty and skincare: CBD! 

Question: What is high?

Answer: High is a revolutionary beauty brand powered by Cannabis sativa. high is formulated using only Cannabis sativa seed oil extracts and is 100% legal and free of psychoactive substances including THC & CBD.

Question: Is high legal?

Answer: high is formulated with Cannabis sativa seed oil. Seed derivatives are exempt from the Controlled Substances Act under the 2004 United States Ninth Circuit Court decision to protect sales of industrial Cannabis sativa-derived foods and body products. The most recent 2018 United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision did not change this status.

Cannabinoids including CBD and THC are not found inside the seeds of industrial Cannabis sativa plants according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes 2009 report. The 2014 Federal Farm Bill authorized U.S. state-sanctioned programs and academic institutions to cultivate industrial hemp for research. The bill also differentiated industrial Cannabis sativa from marijuana due to negligible amounts of THC in industrial plants.

Question: Does high contain Cannabis?

Answer: Yes. High is formulated with food grade Cannabis sativa seed oil in combination with certified organic plant oils, high-potency antioxidants and pure plant essential oils for healthy, beautiful skin.

Question: Will high get me high?

Answer: No, high cannot give you a recreational high or make you fail a drug test. Our formula does not contain THC (psychoactive) or CBD (non-psychoactive).

Question: Why Cannabis?

Answer: Cannabis sativa has an unequaled fatty acid profile of any plant in the world. Its unique concentration of essential fatty acids (EFAs), antioxidants and proteins nourish, protect, and renew skin in the most compatible and natural way possible.

Even more, its perfect 3:1 ratio of omega-6 (linoleic acid) to omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid) EFAs help balance and repair the skin’s natural barrier. Finally, Cannabis sativa seeds are a complete protein source with all twenty amino acids in combination with vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, E and arginine. These essential compounds prevent free radical damage, protect skin with potent antioxidants and delay the aging process.

Cannabis sativa seed oil also has adaptogenic properties, helping balance all skin types. Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil is the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) name of the ingredient. INCI, is a system of names for waxes, oils, pigments, chemicals, and other ingredients used to formulate beauty products based on scientific names and Latin species naming. If you look at the back panel of any product you will see INCI naming as it is legally required.

 

Question: Is Cannabis sativa seed oil safe?

Answer: Yes. Cannabis sativa seed oil is safe to use both on the skin and as part of a healthy diet.

Question: What will Cannabis sativa seed oil do for my skin?

Answer:

  • Helps calm inflammation
  • Balance all skin types with adaptogens
  • Protects with potent antioxidants
  • Hydrates and replenishes

Question: Is high organic?

Answer: high purchases almost all our ingredients from USDA certified organic farmers. High itself is not USDA certified organic but it is formulated to exceed the California Organic Products Act (COPA) which has one of the most rigorous standards in the world, COPA requires products to have a minimum of 70% organic ingredients (excluding water) to display a “mae with organic” claim on the label.

Question: What is not in high?

Answer: high is committed to using organic, natural ingredients. high will never contain parabens & harsh preservatives, petrochemicals, pesticides, BPA & phthalates, sulfates, GMOs & gluten, PEG, MEA, TEA, DEA, propylene & butylene glycols, silicones, artificial fragrances or synthetic colors & dyes.
