There is definitely a lot to know when it comes to applying cannabis topicals to your skin so today we’re exploring Everything You Need to Know About CBD Oil Beauty.
We are now living in a world where marijuana is much more commonly acceptable and hugely used in beauty products.
From facial oils to shampoo, CBD is getting it’s glow-up, as it trades in it’s lazy stoner image for a new one of luxury and necessity.
CBD is no longer taboo, and it’s a staying trend that has made everyone want to learn more, use more and keep it around for good.
Designers, celebrities, and influencers are using every kind of product imaginable from mascara-infused CBD to intimate CBD lube, but not enough information is out there about the real-life benefits for your wellness routine.
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It’s one of the compounds extracted from the cannabis plant.
The two main compounds are CBD (which does not get you stoned) and THC, which does. ( when ingested into the body)
No. Nope. No way! CBD will not get you high. This is why it’s so popular now. It has all of the wellness properties you want, without the high.
This is so interesting! Our bodies make our very own cannabis-type chemical called: anandamide.
Ananda, in Sanskrit means bliss & happiness — just as a side note.
And funny enough, this chemical we produce and make is otherwise known as the “bliss molecule”. ( kind of like yoga high, or runners high).
CBD naturally elevates the levels of your own endocannabinoid and increases anandamide in your body and brain.
Basically? CBD = BLISS!
Much like taking an advil or tylenol, when you ingest CBD orally in oil-form, capsule or via edible, it enters the bloadstream and attaches to the body’s many endocannabinoid receptors.
Because our skin has so many epidural layers, any kind of CBD topical cream or lotion is defined as “localized”. Meaning? It will only get to work on that specific area, and is highly unlikely to penetrate deep enough to get into the bloodstream, if at all.
This study and report concluded that not only is CBD great for skin irritations, but may help in localized pain and issues due to inflammation.
Do you suffer from dry skin like me, or atopic dermatitis? According to the National Centre for Biotechnology Information, CBD may help in treating such skin issues and challenges too!
The proof is literally in the proverbial pudding.
Another study revealed that the CBD found in cannabis is a more potent antioxidant than vitamin C or E.
