With the legalization of cannabis oil in many states in the US, there’s been a revolution in using CBD based products for beauty treatments in recent times. Behind the scenes, many companies are working hard to create CBD infused products that can get rid of your acne and make you look younger at the same time.
While it might seem terribly trendy to some to see these products on store shelves, there may actually be some evidence for using CBD lotions. Some users declare they help soothe aches and pains after a workout, others point out CBD oil has solved their dry skin problem.
Fashionable businesses like Cannuka have decided to mix CBD oil with manuka honey while Claudia Mata has produced a lip balm using the stuff. New products are hitting the stores every day and some of them are very upmarket. The good news is that you don’t have to spend a lot of CBD cream products, if you’re prepared to shop around a little.
All this is part of an attempt by beauty companies to take CBD into the mainstream. But CBD really give you a healthy skin? Will CBD oil provide the perfect solution for your ageing face?
CBD Oil at a Glance:
- It was first discovered in Israel in the 60s by Raphael Mechoulam
- It doesn’t have the psychoactive effects of the other big component in cannabis, THC, which causes the high.
- CBD has been associated with a range of therapeutic and medicinal properties including curing seizures and helping cancer patients get through chemotherapy.
- Because it has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, CBD seems a good choice for using in face creams.
- It’s currently being hailed by celebrities as the new, must have beauty product.
There’s a suggestion that, because of its antioxidant properties, CBD can help protect against problems like ultraviolet rays and air pollution, things that can rapidly age our skin. According to advocates, it’s all about combating the free radicals that can cause wrinkles. Regular use of a hemp facial cream might just stave off these effects and reduce the signs of ageing in the process.
Of course, hemp has been used in the beauty industry for years and was made popular by stores such as Body Shop in the mid-80s. Hemp oil and CBD lotions are particularly good at moisturizing skin and can also be high in omega-3. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD cream make it ideal if you have redness or puffiness in the morning and some people also swear it helps reduce lines and improve skin condition.
There are many companies are now producing skin care products that contain cannabidiol and they are being used to combat both acne and ageing in equal measures. Many experts believe that CBD is just the tip of the iceberg too. Cannabis oil contains hundreds of different compounds that could prove useful to the beauty industry and with increasing legalization there is plenty of research going into potential new lotions and potions.
