Published

on

SkynergyMD is a line of skincare products that caters to a wide range of skin concerns, from maintenance of youthful skin through acne and pigmentation or blotchy skin to anti-aging, all with the goal of having healthy skin while aging.   The three founding medical doctors Dr. Yvette Appiah, Dr. Oge Onwudiwe and Dr. Neh Onumah, have collectively known or worked with each for over 7 years. However, it was only during a casual discussion about 4 years ago that they realized they had a joint interest in starting a skincare line in Africa. In a split second pivot, they went to work on it together and SkynergyMD was born. [caption id="attachment_119112" align="aligncenter" width="464"]SkynergyMD3 Dr. Yvette Appiah and Dr. Oge Onwudiwe[/caption] I caught up with Dr. Yvette Appiah and Dr. Oge Onwudiwe at the Inova Healthplex building in Alexandria, Virginia, where they both practice at AllPhases Dermatology LLC, to talk about the uniqueness of SkynergyMD and it’s offering. https://youtu.be/05TgGie2DRk “We are three dynamic women, who have been practicing dermatology for a combined total of at least 30 years, so we are well versed in the best care for the skin. We know what works for the population that we are targeting not only because we the same type of skin but also because we do this day in and day out. We know what works. On a daily basis, people come in and point out that the goal is for their skin to look like ours – smooth, unblemished, even-toned. So we lend a certain unique perspective to skincare that most people, even most doctors, do not have”, highlighted Dr. Appiah. She added, “Secondly we specifically intended to use ingredients that are sourced from the African continent. We use the general fruits and vegetables that we have on the continent, which have a wide variety of benefits including containing ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin B, Alpha hydroxy acids and more. We know what works in what combination; there is synergistic blend of these ingredients, in the right proportions, that is beneficial for anti-ageing, treating acne, resolving pigmentation problems and preventing sun damage.” The yet to go on the market SkynergyMD product range, pre-launched in December 2017 in Accra, Ghana, includes Rooberry Balancing Primer (contains blue berry, cranberry, raspberry, rooibos tea), Honeycomb Gentle Cleanser (contains honey, coconut and papaya), Ocean Mist Toner (contains spirulina, a blue-green algae, which is very calming, soothing and has healing and antibacterial benefits, as well as beneficial for anti-aging), the Blaq Hydra Moisture-Restoring Cleanser (a variant of black soap with eggplant, black currants, blackberries), eLume Moisturizer with tamarind (African velvet) and turmeric the Envy Resurfacing Pumpkin hydroxy serum and interestingly the Optima Youth Recovery serum that works overnight (contains snail extract, gold, marine collagen) SkynergyMD1 According to Dr. Oge Onwudiwe, the SkynergyMD product line has something for everybody. “We have something for the younger people who just want to maintain their skin and keep it free of wrinkles or sagging. If somebody has acne we have something for him or her to help fight it. We also have something for the mature women who wants to improve their skin or reverse the signs of aging. We purposely ensured that all skin types whether oily, dry, sensitiv or normal skin were considered.” “And for men specifically, we developed a line that would fit their no-fuss regimen; just wash with a cleanser and a add protective moisturizer. The men line does include an aftershave primer, Gin Tonic, and the Essential Brew both formulated to prevent razor bumps and acne but also double in keeping aging at bay”, Dr Appiah added. SkynergyMD2 The first SkynergyMD store will open in Accra on February 16 and shortly after be available online. Dr. Appiah attended the famed University of Chicago’s distinguished Pritzker school of Medicine, where she was involved in research at the forefront of medical innovation in the University of Chicago Medical Center’s Department of Dermatology. This led to her gaining acceptance into the highly competitive and top-rated dermatology residency training program at the prestigious Hospitals of the University of Pennsylvania, where she was selected to co-author the Skin Mantifestations of HIV chapter in a published textbook on HIV. She is the founder, an owner and lead dermatologist in a team of 4 dermatologists at AllPhases Dermatology, LLC in the Washington, D.C. Metro area.

Dr. Onumah graduated from Temple University Medical School and completed an internal medicine residency at the esteemed Yale New Haven Health Systems.

Everything you need to know about Delta 8 Pre-rolls

Published

on

2

Delta 8 is getting in popular among cannabis producers, especially with edibles and, more specifically, Gummies. Delta 8 items are more and more being added to customers’ shopping carts due to new flavors being developed and more concentrated versions being created. Before we get to the top (and the top of our customers’) brands, it’s crucial to learn more regarding Delta 8 products in general.

What is Delta 8?

Delta 8 THC can be a natural substance found in hemp in very small amounts but is converted in the lab with CBD in greater quantities for use in various products. Due to the fact that Delta 8 is derived from hemp chemicals, it is legal in our federal government. Federal law bans products that have over 0.3 percent Delta 9 THC but there is no restriction on Delta 8.

The most popular type of THC cannabinoid in marijuana is beta 9, also known as delta 9. That’s why marijuana is known to have health benefits as well as a powerful psychoactive effect, but also with adverse effects such as anxiety, and paranoia. CBD is well-known for its renowned reputation of offering health benefits (sleep issues, anxiety, general well-being, body pain) which you can take pleasure in without the mental jitters or the high from THC.

Delta 8 has pros and cons, what are they?

It has garnered a dedicated audience due to the fact that it gives a psychoactive high, but also has health benefits. It is possible to eliminate certain negative side effects by using Delta 9 (paranoia and anxiety). While Delta 9 does not produce as much intoxication as Delta 9 (less intoxication), it is equally potent.

However, it’s distinct. It may bring euphoric physical relaxation, as well as mental peace to your mind. You can learn more about Delta 8 THC in our full blog on its benefits.

The advantages of the use of DELTA 8

The utilization of Delta 8, in general, is a fantastic way to reap the advantages of THC in addition to an intense high in psychoactive levels without the unpleasant negative consequences like anxiety or anxiety. Certain benefits include the ability to relax, stimulate your appetite, and anxiety-reducing anti-inflammatory effects that keep your mind in a state of calm. It’s high but without blurred vision.

Delta 8 Pre-rolls

Infused with delta-8, delta-8 pre-rolls are made from hemp flower infused with delta-8 (CBD or CBG flower). The most sought-after pre-rolls consist of pre-rolled cigarettes.

What are the purposes that Delta 8 pre-rolls do?

Delta 8 THC creates the same euphoric effects but is not as strong as Delta 9. Delta 8 prerolls. The one you prefer the most will provide the same benefits as our most loved ones, but they’re completely different! The most frequent outcomes are happiness as well as joy and relief from physical pain.

Conclusion

Delta-8 pre-rolls are a great way to experience the pleasure of the Delta-8 flower, without the need to make the flower roll by yourself. They are particularly beneficial to those just beginning to discover cannabis and don’t have experience in rolling smokeable items, however, everyone can benefit from the ease of pre-rolls.
