It sure seems like CBD has become the new coconut oil. Not just because proponents of each claim miraculous/astounding/"I swear it works" effects in helping with inflammation, but becausethat meme about putting coconut oil on everythingincluding your bank account suddenly seems much more accurate if you swap in CBD. So whenCBD manicuresstarted popping up on the menus of several nail salons, DEMIblue had to conduct some research.

Before we get to the details of mani, a little CBD briefer:Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in the cannabis plant, and is closely related to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — but without the psychoactive qualities you might associate with smoking weed. Although CBD and other hemp-derived oils appear to be just about everywhere these days, the research behind what they're actuallydoingis very, very limited — at least partially becausemost forms of CBD are still considered a schedule 1 drug. In fact,the only FDA-approved usageis for the treatment of rare forms of epilepsy. Charlotte Palermino, journalist and co-founder of the weed-focused siteNice Paper, tells me, "Most doctors and researchers I speak to that are in the world of CBD put it this way: If your source is clean then your tincture won’t harm you. … You just don’t know what’s placebo or actually working, because we have no information on dosing."


According to Harvard Health, CBD oil has proven to offer many healing properties, such as lowering pain and inflammation, without causing any mind-altering effects. In fact, it is impossible to become “high” from CBD oil because the component that causes intoxication, THC, has been removed.

More specifically, CBD has been known to reduce tension, enhance relaxation, target temporary discomfort, and balance your emotions. It is also an amazing moisturizer!

Due to the research and success stories we read, we decided to consider incorporating this perfectly safe and legal product in some of our services. STAY TUNED!!
