Cannuka, a skin-care brand for the “canna-curious,” is rolling out to all Ulta doors.
CBD may be short for cannabidiol, but at this point, it might as well stand for “can’t be dodged” — that’s how ubiquitous the hemp derivative has become in both self-care and skin care recently.
But despite how many brands now make products infused with the high-free cannabis component, you may be surprised to learn that one of the most popular beauty retailers in the U.S., Ulta, hasn’t carried a CBD-based brand.
That is, until now.
Today, CBD beauty has hit a major milestone: the first CBD skincare brand has landed in Ulta. The major beauty retailer has welcomed Cannuka into its doors, making the cannabis and manuka honey-focused brand the first of its kind to be sold in Ulta stores all over the U.S. (There are, however, 15 stores in three states—South Dakota, Nebraska, and Idaho—that will not be carrying the line.)
Together, the unique healing properties of cannabis (CBD derived from hemp) and manuka honey provide a daily skin therapy that both calms and heals skin,” writes the brand, explaining that it’s “for your face, lips, cuticles, elbows, and anywhere else there’s dryness or inflammation.” Cannuka has five SKUs, and Ulta is currently carrying them all.
Founded by husband and wife duo Michael and Kelly Bumgarner, Cannuka states that its mission is to legitimize the cannabis industry, which the brand believes could help lead to a healthier population and a cleaner environment.
