JaynGrene is a new topical company on the market, whose creator’s background includes eight years in The United States Marine Corps, with two tours in Iraq. After her time in the military, she was honorably discharged and graduated from the Art Institute of Washington D.C., focusing her studies in film. She then drove across the country from the Capital to California, by herself, in search of a way to combine her love of film with her love of cannabis. She is now involved with the Weed 4 Warrior Project, which assists veterans in obtaining medicinal cannabis to treat their PTSD and other debilitating post-war symptoms. She is also a cannabis model, has worked with StockPot, Women Grow, and directs and edits for the U.S. Weed Channel.
“I chose to create this specific product line because I attended a 420 class, just to learn more about the business, and I sat next to a gentleman that had on this intoxicating cannabis topical. It was so potent, and horrible smelling that I couldn’t concentrate, so I started wondering if there was a topical on the market with benefits but smelled approachable. Since I’ve always valued beautiful skin, it made sense that I went this route instead of the heavily medicated balms on the market today. After doing some research, I found the best ingredient combination that helps significantly reduce, or altogether alleviate the most common skincare ailments. They not only have healing properties, but also luscious scents that rival any name brand product on the market now.”
JaynGrene offers a line of Non-Gmo, Gluten Free, 100% Natural, Paraben Free, skincare products for both men & women. The line currently includes a Body Butter, Beard Oil, and Beard Balm. This product line is made from high quality ingredients and each of them have an especially pleasant aroma. Especially, the body butter – which is made from a myriad of essential oils including mango oil!
“Cannabis has completely affected my life for the better. I honestly don’t think I can function as a productive member of society without it. As a sufferer of PTSD, it controls my anxiety, anger, back pain, and it helps me see life with the glass half full, instead of half empty. When things go wrong, as they will in life, it’s no longer a situation that will make or break me; but a learning lesson that I now value. Unfortunately, all veterans do not have access to this natural, safe alternative medicine. Because of this they succumb to their symptoms, and on average 22 service members commit suicide a day, because they think it’s the only way to free themselves of the thoughts or emotions that they want to forget but simply never can.”
JaynGrene topicals are different from your average topical on the market today because it is primarily for major skin ailments only, so it should not be used for pain relief. Their skincare products are for men experiencing beardruff, split ends, breakage, or hair bumps underneath their beards. It also has oils full of antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties. These oils are beneficial because they help cuts heal faster, help hair grow thicker and stronger, and they assist in cleaning up those unkempt dirty beards.
The JaynGrene Beard Balm is excellent for softening rough hair follicles, styling and taming, and increasing moisturization in any size beard. For women, they offer exotic scented body butters packed with anti-aging properties. These butters are for individuals perplexed with acne, psoriasis, rosacea, and other skin conditions. The creator personally suffers from eczema, so it was important for her to find ingredients that help combat the irritating skin problem. All of the skincare products are 100% natural, and many of the ingredients featured are organic. They contain an abundance of Vitamin E, and they help your skin feel smooth and soft especially after bath time. Just remember a little goes a long way.
When I opened the bottle of oil, the first thing I noticed was the scent. The smell of lemon grass is present but no overwhelming and; in fact, quite soothing. The dropper is a great touch. Its really nice to be able to control the amount of oil applied without the risk of spilling oil or having oil running down the side of the bottle.
After application the oil is slightly greasy(, but much less greasy than any other products I’ve used. Since its all natural, I just rubbed the excess into my skin on my head and arms. I was left no worries of the oil transferring to my clothing say when my beard or hands and rightly so. I fiddle with my beard quite a bit and even though I didn’t feel like the oil was getting on my fingers.
I feel like the oil softened and thickened my beard hair and even made the hair on my head feel silky. after combing my beard felt full and (as much as that pains my manhood to say) bouncy. Even with my occasional fiddling my beard kept its full shape. The hair was stronger and I experienced almost no breakage, tangling or plucking when combing my beard (which I do 2 to 4 times a day) The oil also virtually stopped “phantom” beard itch and along with the urge to fiddle with my beard (which causes plucking and thinning of the hair).
The oil provides the perfect amount of shine to the hair. Not so shiny that it’s obvious, but a subtle sheen that carries throughout the day. In fact my co worker described my beard as “looking very clean” and “feels softer than usual” that day.
Most products I’ve used cause one of two issues with my skin. Either the product is so greasy that is causes my skin to break out in pimples or the product dries out my skin and hair causing flaky skin and breakage. This beard oil moisturizes my skin perfectly as well as my beard. No breakouts, no flaky skin or breakage. The oil that got onto my lips actually moisturized and I didn’t experience any of the tingling or chemically taste I have with other beard products. Not surprising considering its 100% natural. I just rubbed it into my lips and let it do its thing.
I just found my new go-to product because I love this oil. I just wish it came in larger quantities, so I could use it as an all purpose body and hair product!
