Why CBD?

What is (Ohana) CBD?


Every Ohana product contains an ingredient called cannabidol, which is the scientific way for saying CBD. This ingredient is a phytocannabinoid, which is a fancy way for saying a plant-produced chemical compound. 


Every human body has an endocannabinoid system (let’s call it the ECS). The ECS is a neurotransmitter network that regulates homeostasis, which is a term for saying biological balance. That makes the ECS the boss babe of balance. 


Boss babe ECS works around the clock to maintain balance for hunger and sleep, immunity and inflammation, pain and pleasure and the emotions that go along for the ride. 


Our bodies produce endocannabinoids naturally, and the cannabis plant species naturally produces phytocannabinoids. Two of the most well researched phytocannabinoids are THC (delta-9 Tetrahidrocannabinol) and CBD. There’s at least 111 more that have been identified. 


Taking away the ‘endo-’ and they ‘phyto-’ leave us with a common denominator: cannabinoids. 


There is a synergistic relationship between endos and phytos in the ECS. Phytocannabinoids mimic endocannabinoids’ biological interaction with the ECS to produce similar, or altered, bodily responses.  


When CBD is applied topically, endocannabinoid receptors found in the skin are directly activated. Localized application, for example on the face with Ohana’s day and night serum, releases the active ingredient’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-ageing properties. 


Talk about some serious powerful plant performance! 


CBD as an active ingredient brings together plant biology and human biology to achieve biological balance externally. Ohana products contain CBD isolate derived from hemp (containing no traces of THC, 100% legally compliant). 


CBD is one ingredient amongst a list of others that have a harmonious connection between the plant world and the personal world. 


The entire Ohana product range is 100% natural, plant-based, non-toxic, and never tested on animals. Our love the environment, love our community and love for oneself is too strong to be anything otherwise. 


Only necessary ingredients are there to serve healthy, well-balanced skin. Ohana focuses on a holistic approach to skincare from health to well-being. Integrate functionality into routine. Skincare is a form of self-care. Become your own boss babe of balance.
