As a savvy beauty product consumer, you’ve undoubtedly already noticed how prominent and ubiquitous CBD skin care has become. There are some very good reasons for that.
First, there was the 2018 Farm Bill. After years of prohibition of everything cannabis, they finally recognized that what is commonly known as “hemp” should have a separate classification. Hemp is a type of cannabis that has less than .03% THC and is very high in CBD (Cannabidiol). Therefore, it doesn’t cause the intoxication associated with types of cannabis that are higher in THC.
And second, this bill, and its 2016 predecessor, opened up the possibility for more CBD research in the US. When compared to our tried-and-true, and extensively researched, substances like retinol, collagen or Vitamin C, studies are still in their infancy. And we need to allow the Scientific Method to run its course, but we can already see some promising research pointing to potential benefits for the body and mind.
For example, peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies, and even human trials have shown that cannabidiol may:
- Reduce inflammation in the hippocampus, a portion of the brain that helps regulate emotion.
- Have anti-bacterial properties
- Permeate the skin, delivering CBD into the bloodstream
- Offer neuroprotective properties as well as pain reduction
- Improve the symptoms of skin disorders like dermatitis, auto-immune skin diseases, and general itchiness by reducing inflammation
So whether you’d like to try CBD skin care for daily cleansing, to ease skin irritation, or as a serum for potential anti-aging benefits, we’ve got 12 CBD skin care products you’ll want to try.
