How We Got Started
In November of 2016, my husband was hit in the ankle with an 84mph golf club which produced a massive injury to his ankle, and I, tripped over a broom, (or should I say, "fell off my broom") and broke my kneecap. We were both laid up and in pain for weeks. Pat had to go weekly to have his wound cleaned and I struggled with waiting for my bone to fuse.
With both of us in discomfort, we started to do research on CBD topicals and decided to try some. We found that they worked great for a while and then they didn't. We finally gave up on the search and decided to develop our own.
So, for almost 2 years, with the help of a family member that is in the cannabis industry, we worked hard on developing our own balm, that was chemical and carcinogenic free, and we did it!
It worked so well on my knee that I was no longer waking up in the middle of the night with knee pain. Pat's eczema had shown remarkable improvement, and the balm has helped reduce some of the swelling! I was so excited with the results but was hesitant to believe what I was experiencing. (Perhaps I was wishing it would work, so therefore it did?)
We shared it with friends, and we received overwhelming positive results from them as well. One person now uses it on the corns of his feet! We then gave Ladybūd Balm to my senior dance students (ages 63 - 85) and they too have had positive results with our bälm.
A question we often get is..."if the product has THC, will I test positive in a drug test?" Well, that was always a concern of ours as well, even though the THC level is the legal max level of .03%, we still decided to do an in-house testing before sending it out to others.... after 3 weeks of daily use (3-4x a day) of our ladybūd balm, we all took urine drug tests and all of us tested negative....I hope this helps to ease your concerns :) I don't know if you will have the same results with our bälm as us, but I do know, if nothing else, that our balm softens dry skin as well as cracked feet!
With the success of the bälm I thought "why not make botanical lip balms - natural body butter - blush & soap that are chemical free and nurturing as well?" and that is what Ladybūd has done!
Ladybūds' Body Būtter, Soaps, Well-Being Supplement, Soaps, Lip Balm, are completely chemical free and contain organic hemp seed oil. hemp seed oil is high in omega acids 3, 6, and 9, all of which help repair the skin barrier and form a seal over the skin to keep moisture trapped inside. It is also a humectant, so it draws moisture to the skin
The many health benefits of hemp seed oil come from its high content of three polyunsaturated fatty acids: linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, and gamma-linolenic acid. Additionally, its ratio of omega-6 (linoleic acid) to omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid) fatty acids is 3:1.
