FAQs

Products & Ingredients

What age is GALYNA™ appropriate for?

Our products are designed for 21+ only. Keep out of reach of children.

Will I get ‘high’?

GALYNA™ products are for topical use only and will not get you ‘high’ in the same way that other THC-infused products do, for example edibles or vaporizers.

Will I fail drug tests?

Unlike some skin formulations, the molecules of GALYNA™ are not small enough to enter the bloodstream.

Can I use too much GALYNA?

Everybody is different, but as with any new skincare product, we advise that you try a small amount on your skin first. Discontinue use if redness or other irritations occur.

Is GALYNA formulated and tested cruelty free?

Yes. We actually test exclusively on human skin, gained from cadavers or post-plastic surgery, in an independent lab, under microscopes and other diagnostic tools to gauge efficacy and other quantitative metrics of success and failure to deliver the right solution for human skin only.

Are GALYNA products gluten free?

Yes.

Are all GALYNA™ products plant-based?

GALYNA™ products consist of ingredients that are plant based except one: lanolin, found in Repair. Lanolin is naturally sourced from sheep’s wool.

Are all GALYNA™ products fragrance-free?

GALYNA™ products are not fragranced in the technical sense. Our Soothe formulation contains menthol, and Dream has whispers of lavender essential oil.

Can I use GALYNA™ with other cannabis products? What about other medications?

We know that both cannabis and skincare are deeply personal. For best results, we recommend using GALYNA™ on its own at first, to monitor your body’s reaction. Beyond that, our products can pair very well with other responsibly used cannabis products. That said, always consult your personal physician for complete clarity.

Why are GALYNA products a mix of CBD and THC? Why not just CBD?

THC is the most radical of all cannabinoids but contributes to skin health beyond the more mundane plant based particles. Cannabinoids work well in symphony, not missing portions of their concerto. GALYNA™ is constantly refining the cannabinoid complex found in our growing portfolio. Be on the lookout for future cannabinoids beyond CBD & THC in our scientific findings and in our products in the future.

 

Is GALYNA™ safe to use during pregnancy/nursing?

The research regarding CBD and THC usage during pregnancy in general is still inconclusive. We recommend consulting your physician prior to use. 

Are there any toxic or potentially harmful ingredients in any of the GALYNA™ products?

No. All of our ingredients are 100% natural. We are committed to using only the highest-quality, clean skincare ingredients. We value healing over harming.

What should I do if I have an allergic reaction?

Contact your doctor right away if you experience an allergic reaction.

General Knowledge

What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

All humans, and many other animals, have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS), an endogenous system that regulates biological balance, or homeostasis. 

The ECS consists of three key elements:

  1. Cannabinoid Receptors (CB1 and CB2),

  2. Endocannabinoids (chemical compounds produced by the body) and

  3. Metabolic Enzymes (produced to break down endocannabinoids).

Phytocannabinoids, such as CBD and THC, interact with the ECS by mimicking biological receptor responses. 

What is CBD and THC?

CBD and THC are only two of 113+ identified chemical compounds, or cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant. Both compounds interact with the naturally occurring human Endocannabinoid System.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a major, non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid (i.e. plant produced compound that has no ‘mind-altering’ effects). CBD is produced in large concentrations in the cannabis plant species, and can also be found in other plants, such as hops.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the compound in cannabis that is psychoactive, and when consumed or smoked, it is absorbed into the bloodstream and travels to the brain, attaching itself to the naturally-occurring endocannabinoid receptors located in the cerebral cortex, cerebellum, and basal ganglia. These are the parts of the brain responsible for thinking, memory, pleasure, coordination and movement.

What is CBD Isolate?

CBD isolate is a pure, isolated form of CBD. There are no other active compounds in the extract. It represents the most uniformly, batch replicable cannabinoid for our scientific studies.

What is the difference between Topical vs Transdermal?

The difference revolves around locally sitting atop the skin (Topical), versus penetrating into the greater body systems via your skin (Transdermal). GALYNA™ first and foremost delivers skin-centric science to focus on only the outermost layers. GALYNA™’s scientific advantage is Topical in nature which allows only target areas of outer skin to receive our treatment. A Transdermal product is designed to pass through the epidermis into the deeper tissues and bloodstream, to affect other parts of your mind and body, but may signal positive results in drug testing. Transdermal techniques are commonly used in pharmaceutical applications. GALYNA™ exclusively crafts Topicals designed to improve your skin and life.

How do cannabinoids help with skin problems?

There are endocannabinoid receptors found throughout the body and skin. Applying cannabinoids topically targets a localized bodily response. Direct interaction with skin receptors through cannabinoids releases the compounds anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Learn more here.

Our Company

How do you pronounce GALYNA™ and what does it mean?
Pronounced ‘Gah-lee-nah’, the word has several interesting meanings:
1) It is the name of the Balkan Goddess of Calm and Tranquility. 2) Galena is also the name of a highly sought after ore used in silver mining in the intermountain west like Aspen & Sun Valley. 3) It is the name of an eye make-up used to fend off the sun by ancient Egyptians.

Why did you change your original brand name to GALYNA™?
During a pandemic related hiatus, a few firms with similar names arose before our launch. In order to honor the ground-breaking science we developed, we knew we needed a unique brand. Sustainability is also a core belief in our offerings, so we decided to utilize any existing packaging before another round of reprints. If you received a stickered jar with your purchase, congratulations you are one of our first customers. We hope you can appreciate the choices we made to stay true to our brand promise.

Where are you based, and where are your products made?
Our founding and distribution team is based in Denver, Colorado. We are proud to blend 100% of our formulations in the USA, with global ingredients. Our proprietary final formulation is made in small batches and with exacting standards with Colorado cannabinoids.

What further research or science do you have available?
Please visit our Science page to read more about the research and data we currently have available. Our formulations are patent pending and proprietary. We are continuously building on the results of our early testing and collecting customer feedback. We have several other products containing cannabinoids in advanced development that target other skin problems.
