CBD 101: FAQ

As you may know, YENSA has just launched the first product of our newest line, the Superfood Dual Cleansing Oil. We infused our green superfood blend with our powerful 100 mg CBD. We know there can be a lot of confusion and misconception around CBD. However, the truth is that CBD has plenty of positive qualities that you can benefit from. So we came up with a few FAQ to help you better understand why we created CBD products, and so you can see just how good they are.

What is CBD? Why use CBD?

CBD, Cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, Cannabis Sativa. CBD Oil is extracted from the cannabis plant. At YENSA, we believe in multi-tasking products with great benefits. With CBD infused skincare, calming anti-inflammatory properties help calm skin.

What is the difference between CBD and THC?


  • Can be extracted from the whole cannabis plant - leaves, stems and flowers.
  • Can be infused into oils, lotions, etc without the high-inducing THC over 0.3%
  • Can. be derived from the hemp plant, which has no psychoactive effects.


  • Has psychoactive effects when higher than 0.3% is consumed with cannabis or marijuana
  • THC over 0.3% activates receptors in the brain which leads to the "high" associated with marijuana

Can I get high from using YENSA's CBD products?

Our CBD products have no mind altering effects whatsoever. Our Full Spectrum CBD has less than 0.3% traces of THC, which is not active and can not get you high. 

What does Full Spectrum mean?

Our CBD products are Full-Spectrum. This simply means that our CBD is extracted from the entire plant, so that we can get the benefits from the highest quality parts of the leaves, stem and flowers. 

Are YENSA's CBD products suitable for sensitive skin?

Yes, all YENSA products have been formulated with your sensitive in mind, while also remaining an excellent choice for anyone (even those less sensitive) who want to respect their skin with pure, safe ingredients. CBD has great anti-inflammatory properties which will help soothe redness and skin sensitive. We use Superfoods and natural extracts at effective levels and avoid potentially harsh ingredients such as paragons, petrochemicals, propylene glycol, phthalates, and animal. by-products. If you do suffer from a particular ingredient allergy, please carefully read through the ingredient list on each product. Our products are all tested against allergies and are FDA approved.

Can I use YENSA's CBD products if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes, YENSA products are safe and effective for pregnant women. However, if you're pregnant or breastfeeding, it's wise to consult your doctor before making any changes to your usual routine. 

What are the benefits of CBD in skincare?

CBD has many benefits in beauty products. Here is a detailed list of all the main qualities:

Anti-inflammatory: Helps with acne prone skin. Reduces inflammation, and visibly reduces redness and breakouts. 

Balancing Effects: Helps to decrease excess oil production, in turn balancing the flow of skin's oil. 

Antioxidant Properties: Lessens the signs of visible aging. Counteracts free-radical damage and reduces the look of inflammation, wrinkles, skin dullness, and uneven skin tone. 

Soothing Properties: Calms the skin, minimizing issues correlated to skin sensitivity. All skin types are prone to stress because of our daily environment. CBD calms it down, to keep skin steady, healthy and balanced. 

What makes YENSA's CBD special compared to all others on the market?

The YENSA CBD Collection, combines the benefits of CBD with our signature 8 SuperOils blend. This gives the customer all the properties of CBD, as well as the benefits of our Superfoods. This combination works together to enhance one another. It is the ultimate combination to fight against acne, clogged pores, inflammation, premature aging, and redness while promoting moisture, cell renewal and skin health.
