What is CBD Oil and why is it beneficial to my skin?
CBD Oil can be best described as a powerful superfood for the skin. While all skin types can benefit from its antioxidant-rich + anti-inflammatory properties, CBD is especially helpful for skin that's sensitive, reactive and acne-prone (since acne is an inflammatory condition).
In addition to being good for skin that is prone to irritation and inflammatory issues, it’s also supportive for aging skin. The potent antioxidants found in CBD Oil work to counteract free-radical damage helping to visibly diminish issues like fine lines, dullness, and uneven skin tone.

Where do you source the CBD Oil used in your Soothing Serum?
Our CBD Oil is sourced from organically grown hemp in Colorado and is put through several quality-control tests to ensure only the best hemp plants make it into our oil.
How is your CBD Oil extracted?
The majority of extraction methods for CBD Oil use high heat for long periods of time alongside solvents (such as propane + ethanol - yikes!) which damages the hemp plant and leaves behind residual chemicals.
Our CBD Oil is flash-extracted using a quick burst of steam for less than 2 seconds, which results in a 100% organic CBD Oil with all of the delicate, beneficial compounds and none of the nasty stuff (the difference between the two methods is similar to the different processes to obtain cold-pressed juice vs. pasteurized juice).
Our CBD Oil is the purest available. It contains the broadest and most beneficial variety of terpenes and flavonoids to maximize the effects of CBD Oil so that it has a greater capacity to contribute to your skin health and overall wellness.
Will CBD make me high?
The short answer is, no. There’s not enough THC present in CBD Oil to create any intoxicating effects. Unlike other cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not produce a euphoric "high" or psychoactive effect, as CBD does not affect the same receptors as THC.
Plus the minimal amount of THC present helps to contribute to the Entourage Effect, creating a more potent, transformative CBD Oil and offers significantly more therapeutic + medicinal support for skin and overall wellness.
Is it safe to use CBD Oil during pregnancy or while nursing?
We recommend consulting your doctor or healthcare professional regarding the use of CBD Oil during pregnancy or while nursing.
Why can I only purchase the Soothing Serum on this site?
Due to certain restrictions that prohibit us from selling CBD + Cannabis products of any kind on our main site, we have created this page to house all of our products that contain this particular ingredient. Rest assured this product is still being created and sold by Primally Pure.
Does the Soothing Serum have THC in it?
To keep things legal (and sober), we extract our CBD Oil from organic Hemp – not Marijuana – so there are only trace amounts of THC in our CBD Oil (staying well below the less than .3% guidelines set for CBD Oil products).
Has the Soothing Serum been evaluated by the FDA?
The CBD Oil in our Soothing Serum is for topical use only, do not ingest. Cannabidiol (CBD) has not been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Therefore, CBD may not be used to diagnose, treat or cure any disease or health problem. If you have any health concerns/questions, please consult your medical professional before using any product.
