FIRST THINGS FIRST What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (better known as CBD), is one of over 100 chemical compounds called “cannabinoids” that are found in the flower of the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa).
CBD for Hair Wellness
Cannabidiol has proven to be a top contender in the beauty and skincare industry. Why CBD is a V.B.D. (Very Big Deal)? Aaah-mazing Results. Infused with a plant-based blend of 99% Pure CBD and Hemp Seed Oil, Wellphoria is a professional hair care line proven to address all 5 dimensions of hair wellness—strength, conditioning, softness, balance, and shine—in just one use.

What’s the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
Both hemp and marijuana belong to the “cannabis” genus of plants, but while both are buzzed about, only one actually gets you buzzed. Let’s compare:
- Referred to as "industrial hemp" for its use in food and personal care
- Federally approved under the Farm Bill
- Low concentration of THC (<0.3%) and no psychoactive effects
- High concentration of CBD
- Contains both CBD and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
- THC is the psychoactive compound that produces the “high” effect
- High concentration of THC (5%-35%)
- Low concentration of CBD
What’s the difference between Hemp and CBD?
Now that you know all about the hemp plant, let’s break it down even further and compare the two types of oil you can get from it.
For thousands of years, hemp has been used for a wide range of purposes. Hemp seed oil is derived from the seed of the hemp plant, which is one variety of the cannabis plant.
CBD is extracted from the stalk, stems, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant. It can also be produced from the marijuana plant.
Hemp Seed Oil vs. CBD Oil
With a vegan formula not tested on animals, Wellphoria™ products are naturally infused with 50 ppm of 99% pure CBD and nutrient-rich Hemp Seed Oil.
Hemp Seed Oil
- Oil that is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant
- Nutrient-rich, but contains little to no CBD or other phytocannabinoids
- Oil that is extracted from the stem, stalk, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant
- Contains CBD, terpenes, and other cannabinoids
Types of CBD
So now you know what CBD is—but not all CBD is created equal. CBD can come in 3 forms: Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum and Isolate. While CBD Isolate and Broad Spectrum CBD contain low to no amount of THC (0.0%-<0.3%), Full Spectrum CBD can contain THC.
WELLPHORIA™ USES ISOLATE
Why CBD Isolate?
Once the hemp is harvested, it goes through a clean extraction process that results in a crystalline powder that is 99% pure CBD. This allows us to control the precise amount of CBD content in every formula, plus we include Hemp Seed Oil that is nutrient-rich in vitamins, minerals, and omega fatty acids. (You know, the good stuff that helps make your hair look phenomenal.)
100% of participants* agree that hair treated with our CBD 50 ppm + vegan hemp seed oil looks healthier vs. regular conditioner.

There’s one last “part” to our CBD 101 lesson:
Parts Per Million, or PPM.
This measurement is used to describe the precise concentration of an ingredient in a formula. Why is it important? Because you’ll receive that concentration no matter how much of that formula you use.
Wellphoria™ products are formulated with 50 ppm of CBD—which means that whether you use an itty-bitty dime-sized amount or a generous dollop, you’ll always receive 50 ppm of CBD with every use.
Trusted and Tested ✔️
At Wellphoria we think trust and transparency are super-important, which is why all Wellphoria™ products are tested by a third-party facility. This independent lab verifies that every formula contains at least 50 ppm of high-quality, authentic CBD—no exceptions.
CBD and Skincare
The beauty benefits of CBD don't just stop at hair health. CBD can be used for skin care as well.
As you've learned throughout our CBD 101 guide, cannabidiol may have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits that can benefit the skin. Skin conditions that may have been treated with CBD skin care products include dryness, eczema, psoriasis, inflammation, acne, and free radical damage.
