Most commonly asked questions about our CBD:


How does CBD work?

 Most of us know of the 11 systems in the human body such as digestive, nervous or circulatory systems. But there is also another one called the endocannabinoid system, which is made up of millions of cannabinoid receptor sites. The Endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function.

 CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the body bind with the molecules of CBD and produce a positive biological response.

 What is the difference between hemp CBD and marijuana?

Hemp and marijuana are different varietals of the plant species Cannabis. One could say they are cousins, but scientifically polar opposites. Hemp contains a trace level of THC (0.3 or less) and a high level of CBD. Marijuana has low levels of CBD and high levels of THC.

You can get high on marijuana, and you can’t get high on hemp. Period.

 How does CBD work when used topically?

 It is believed that Hemp CBD works faster for localized issues when used topically because the CBD goes directly to the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptor sites in the specific area that it is applied without going through the digestive system.

 In a study done at the University of Kentucky transdermal CBD significantly reduced joint swelling, improved mobility and reduced pain for rats with arthritis. The scientific community is still catching up to research on the effectiveness of transdermal Hemp CBD. Antidotal results have been impressive.

 Where is your Hemp grown?

This is vital because cannabis is a hyperaccumulator which means that it easily absorbs contaminants from the soil. Hemp will clean up the environment around it, so it is vital that our hemp is grown in organic soil with absolutely no pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, herbicides, or other contaminates. Our products are grown in Kentucky under the federally approved program authorized under Section 7606 and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

 What is the ratio of CBD to THC?

 The ratio of CBD to THC in the Cherry strain used by Parisian’s Pure Indulgence in our Relieve CBD Oil is 25:1.

 Why do you use Supercritical CO2 Extraction vs. Solvent Extraction?

 We do not use solvents such as butane, isopropyl alcohol, pentane, hexane or ethanol to extract our CBD from the hemp plant. Solvents are considered processing aids and are not added to the label. We use a supercritical CO2 extraction process to create our hemp CBD mud which is then vacuum distilled to make our Hemp CBD Oil. This method leaves us with a solvent-free, all-natural, full-spectrum hemp CBD which is also alcohol-free, vegan, non-GMO and gluten-free.

Using supercritical CO2 extraction preserves the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids of the hemp. It is a more expensive method of extraction, but worth the full spectrum, cannabinoid rich finished product.

My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
