The healing properties of CBD on your skincare routine

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of more than 60 cannabinoid compounds found in a marijuana plant, which includes the substance most commonly associated with the “stoned” effect, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).  CBD oil won’t get you high because it doesn’t have the mind-altering properties of marijuana’s tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. CBD and THC are sourced from two different parts of the marijuana plant.

It’s been proved by a number of new studies that CBD oil functions as an anti-inflammatory. So if you have acne-prone skin, you may benefit from the soothing properties of CBD. Because acne is an inflammatory condition, research indicates CBD’s healing properties can help diminish breakouts and reduce redness. CBD has the potential to decrease excessive oil production, which also helps with acne prevention.

By reducing inflammation and counteracting free-radical damage, CBD anti-aging creams can help to visibly diminish issues like wrinkles, skin dullness, and ruddy skin tone. Studies also indicates that the medicinal oil may even be able to help inhibit certain triggers of disorders like psoriasis and improve eczema-prone skin.

When compared to skin-care holy grails like retinols and vitamin C, the research behind CBD's efficacy in skin care is still relatively in the beginning and there is much more to come.  When looking for a CBD infused skincare product, make sure it’s not just a hemp seed oil—also called cannabis sativa oil and hemp oil—which has been a common ingredient in skincare products for a long time. It’s not, however, the same thing as CBD. There’s nothing wrong with hemp seed oil, but it’s not an active ingredient and it doesn’t carry any notable anti-inflammatory benefits.
