Cannabis and CBD: A New Breakthrough in Skincare?

Posted by Anthony Phillips on

When it comes to skincare, there is one ingredient that I keep seeing more and more.  Its popularity stems from the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  Indeed, very desirable to the skin care world.  Whether it’s acne, rosacea, or anti-aging, finding a skin care solution that works for you is no easy task.  That is why I was totally intrigued when I came across information that pointed to using CBD in skin care.

 

What is CBD?

 

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 80 active cannabinoid chemicals in the hemp plant.  CBD, unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), does not produce euphoria or intoxication.  CBD's target specific receptors in brain cells and the body.  There are both physical and mental benefits to the use of CBD products for treatment and prevention.

Most skin conditions are caused by some sort of inflammation.  Acne, aging, rosacea.  All are signs of underlying inflammation, either internally or from an external source.  CBD is a known anti-inflammatory,  so it makes sense that many skin care products are starting to add this as an ingredient.  If one can control the inflammation, one can control the disease.  As someone who personally suffers from adult onset acne, I have seen improvement in my ability to manage my acne, as well as an overall healthier appearance to my skin.  I am one happy camper! 

CBD can be consumed in multiple ways, which is one reason why so many people can benefit from using CBD. This valued plant can be utilized in multiple ways.  A simple search on your favorite web browser will reveal CBD in gummy candies, vape pens, full spectrum oils, topical pain relief ointments, skin care, sleep aid sprays, and there are even CBD products for your pets
