BLUNT: Brand interview with Stas Chirkov


BLUNT is a 420 friendly vegan beauty brand that celebrates the beauty of cannabis and the many usages it holds. There are many skin care benefits to cannabinoids aside from the well known recreational uses of it. BLUNT isn’t afraid to break boundaries and openly talk about cannabis and embrace what it truly has to offer!

1. What inspired you to create Blunt Skincare?

I started BLUNT because I wanted clean, effective skincare that uses cannabis in new and interesting ways. As a consumer of cannabis myself, I knew what the plant can do but we didn’t learn about cannabinoids at school or on the job. I researched different extracts from cannabis and what I found was an exciting, new way to approach beauty.

2. Can you tell us about the featured ingredients and the brand mission?

We formulate our products only with clean and top-shelf ingredients that have long-lasting benefits for your skin. Some of these ingredients are derived from cannabis, a plant that many refer to as “medicine” — us included. The main focus of our cannabis face oil collection is to educate beauty consumers that not every cannabis-derived ingredient works the same way. We love how lightweight and hydrating cannabis sativa seed oil is, how pure CBD fights inflammation, and how full-spectrum extract provides a wide range of therapeutic benefits. Our brand mission is to end the stigma of all kinds and always be blunt about what we put on our skin – the brand cares about skin health, believes in science and is passionate about cannabis.

3. What is your favorite Blunt Skincare product and why?

I love using all three products: depending on how my skin feels the specific day, I sometimes swap one for another. I use SEED in the morning and love how fast it absorbs into the skin; I use ISOLATE as a spot treatment or when I feel my skin is inflamed and stressed; I use MOONROCK every day at night and love how plump and radiant my skin looks the next day.

4. What beauty essentials do you carry with you on a daily basis?

Lip balm and sunscreen are a must. A stick concealer and a small spray of thermal water especially in the summer. 

5. What does beauty mean to you?

To me, beauty means confidence. Being comfortable in your skin adds a beautiful glow to everyone. 

6. What is your morning and evening beauty routine?

My morning routine is usually simple – cleanse, tone, face oil and then SPF. In the evenings I like to add more treatments in forms of masks or serums with a high percentage of active ingredients. 

7. What’s your best beauty tip?

Sleep is essential. Another tip is to read ingredient labels on the products you consume and use (skincare, makeup, food). 

8. What’s next for Blunt Skincare?

We’ll be introducing more new products that address the skin concerns of our customers. We’re also excited to connect with more customers and grow our brand!
