Why cannabis is the new skincare ingredient of the moment

posted in: DIY Beauty | 0

From CBD enriched body lotions to cannabis infused bath soaks, pot is popping up in all kinds of personal care products.

Why Cannabis, You Ask?

One of the greatest things about cannabis are the many nutrients derived from the plant. CBD and THC extracts help reduce inflammation and itching from psoriasis and eczema. CBD oil contains a lot of antioxidants. Hemp seed oil contains vitamins C, E and A, as well as omegga-3 fatty acids.

Since CBD doesn't have the psychoactive properties like THC, certain products will be easier to attain. Here are some companies that sell top quality CBD topical creams:
  • Lord Jones
  • Pure Ratios
  • Papa and Barkley
  • Charlotte's Web
  • Isodiol

The Body Shop has been selling hemp seed oil products since the early '90's. Dr. Jeannette Jacknin, a dermatologist from California, said that CBD will probably become popular in anti-aging skin care routines.

Increasingly common are also cannabis-containing products formulated for pain relief. This use of the plant is also really promising.
As cannabis becomes legal in more areas, we'll more than likely continue to see new ways of using it.
