This week for our #whativelearnt about series, I met Jasmin Thomas who is the Founder of Ohana CBD- vegan, plant-based skincare infused with CBD (Cannabidiol, which is a naturally occurring constituent of Cannabis).

In 2015 Jasmin was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a degenerative autoimmune disease. To try and control it, she starting researching more natural forms of treatment than the pharmaceutical drugs she was offered. She then discovered CBD oil which changed her life and eased a lot of the painful and frustrating symptoms. The more she researched the diversities of the cannabis plant and its medicinal extracts, the more passionate she became about it.

In 2016, she started making balms infused with CBD for her friends and family. The feedback was amazing so it slowly grew and developed a range of 6 products.

“Since entering the legal cannabis industry I have learnt so much about the healing powers of this plant and have witnessed first-hand how powerful and positive it can be as on option for medication.

Our bodies are designed to consume cannabinoids and once we learn which ones work for us, in my humble opinion it is one the best most natural options for medication. I have been medicating with cannabis oil and CBD for three years to manage MS symptoms and have managed to do so thus far without pharmaceutical drugs.

I have also learnt just how diverse the hemp plant is and in a world where we wrap everything in plastic I truly believe hemp will be the future for sustainability and saving our planet.” 

CBD, the core ingredient for all of Obana’s all natural skincare products, is said to hold anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-ageing properties. If you want to learn more- head over to Obana CBD's website. 

What are your thoughts on CBD and would you try the skincare? Or have you already? We’d love to hear….
