The ideal serving size is currently still in question. Yet when contemplating serving size it is important to remember that the compounds derived from from whole hemp extracts (CBD / Terpenes) are considered to be relatively safe.
Supercritical, on the other hand, is a high pressure and high temperature process that damages most terpenes and heat sensitive chemicals, but can extract much larger molecules such as lipids (omega 3 and 6), chlorophyll, and waxes. A truly full-spectrum CO2 extract includes first performing a subcritical extraction, separating the extracted oil, and then extracting the same plant material using supercritical pressure, and then homogenizing both oil extracts into one.
No. Marijuana contains Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psycho-active component. Hemp contains less than 0.3% THC, and our lab tests each batch to confirm the tincture has below 0.3% THC. There’s no possibility of intoxication by consuming our extract (CBD Hemp Oil) or any whole, raw natural product from Industrial Hemp products.
CO2 extraction is an extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired compounds from a plant. CO2 at certain temperatures and pressures acts like a solvent, without the dangers of actually being one.
*The endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating the pain response, and people who suffer from chronic pain can benefit.
Both Rick Simpson Hemp Oil and our CBD Hemp Oil are being used for similar reasons, and both are getting similar feedback as to the success stories being reported.
There are roughly 80 different phyto-cannabinoids, most prominently CBD, CBC, CBG, CBN, and most likely others yet to be effectively identified.
Flash back a few months ago, I saw a Vice episode while editing blog and Instagram photos. It was about cannabis and CBD, and how mothers were using it to help their kids with epilepsy and as a treatment for seizures. I was just so curious about the compound. Then I saw another episode about CBD and depression, and then PTSD, and then immune disorders. My curiosity grew and I did more research that brought us to Amsterdam, San Francisco, and Los Angeles visiting every cannabis cafes and dispensaries. I think the question always lingered… Maybe CBD can help me with my anxiety, PTSD, and pelvic spasms. In a way, I was hoping to find answers for myself.
If you asked me 10 years or 5 years or even a year ago if Artemis was within the horizon, the answer would have been a big no. The truth is every blogger/Instagrammer/content creator I know worry about their future. As content and new social platforms evolve, we also have to evolve and naturally our “shelf self” becomes shorter. Thus, most of us start thinking about paths beyond blogging. The natural fit is usually a clothing line, jewelry line, or beauty line. I always loved fashion, so instinctively, I wanted to get more involved in the design world.
Back in Los Angeles, I hired a tutor who taught me pattern making and design. I did a collaboration with Marissa Webb a few years ago and I learned so much about construction and styling. Colin and I went to Vietnam and found a woman-owned clothing manufacturer, who also had a mission that was aligned to our future clothing brand – to help women who were previously sex trafficked. All of the pieces were there, but for some reason or another they just didn’t connect. As hard as I tried, I just didn’t know what was my added value. I didn’t want to have a clothing brand for the sake of having a clothing line. In the end, that idea was put on hold.
Maybe I can find answers to my anxiety, PTSD, and pelvic floor muscle spasms.
Flash forward to a few months later, I saw this space and knew it would be our second home. And like a speeding bullet, everything happened so fast. But so naturally. We signed the lease, started building it out, researched heavily into the compound, made every cement decor and display sign by hand. We didn’t hire electricians, contractors, merchandisers, interior designers… it was just Colin and I. And Colin’s good friend Matt, who stopped by to help us clean, set up, and paint. The whole process took about a month and that was it. Artemis opened and it changed our lives.

Beboe CBD face mask – the trick is to exfoliate with your favorite exfoliator. Wash and dry face. Then apply the Saint Jane face oil on, wait a few seconds, and apply this mask over it. Wait for the mask to dry out (about 80% dry is perfect), peel off, press the remaining oil into face, wait a few minutes, and apply your favorite cream or moisturizer. Transformation to smooth, clear, and glowy skin complete!
We had so much fun shooting the homepage images! The art direction for this season is the theme of home. Little corners and small moments of here and there. Something familiar yet new, warm and comforting.

One of my favorite topics – skincare! We searched high and low, and curated a full collection of CBD skincare heroes. Personally, CBD skin oils have helped me tremendously. I had a really bad allergic reaction, and a rash formed and traveled to my forehead, cheeks, and chin. I was put on antibiotics, but my skin texture struggled to get back to normal. My face was dry, the aftermath of the rash left blotches of red bumpy spots all over my face, and the overall texture was rough. I carefully exfoliated, but the real heroes were my skin oils.
One of the things that make Artemis unique is our commitment to your wellness journey. A major struggle at the start of a CBD journey is usually dosing. Basically, how much to take. For each CBD drops, we will create a personalized dosing guide for you.
