Benefits of CBD are vast and in the recent year, CBD based products boomed globally and in the UK. Particularly in the sport and beauty industry. Some statistics show that in the UK alone the use of CBD has grown by 100%. So, what is all that fuss about? Why has CBD become the antidote for the 21st century’s pain?
CBD – The antidote for everything.
CBD’s benefits are vast which is why it can be used in the various product to treat many conditions. CBD prevents pain and inflammation. It helps to relieve stress and anxiety and even aiding digestion. Alongside the anecdotal evidence such as calming and soothing an inflamed and irritated skin, CBD can also help reduce oil secretions for acne-prone skin. CBD products are available in several forms, including oils and lotion.
What is the CBD and can it get you high?
CBD is also known as cannabidiol. It is the non-intoxicating component of marijuana or hemp plants. CBD is extracted as a powder, and is typically mixed with an oil like olive, hemp, or coconut, all of which enhance application and effectiveness, hence the name “CBD oil”.
You won’t get high by using CBD oil in skincare. It doesn’t have the mind-altering properties of marijuana’s tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. It’s extracted from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant, whose THC content is exceptionally low, often so low it cannot be detected by testing equipment.
Skincare benefits of CBD oil and why is it good in skincare?
Benefits of CBD oil are vast in skincare because of its anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. Its properties work wonders for ance. This is because acne is an inflammatory condition. Even though the causes can vary any product that can reduce inflammation is more likely to significantly reduce the appearance of breakouts and acne-related redness.
Secondly, acne-prone skin tends to overproduce oil, which mixed with dirt, products can contribute to acne and CBD oil is supposed to have the potential to decrease sebum. However, after some research I’ve done in preparation for this post, it appears that more studies need to be concluded to confirm those initial results.
Ther is no doubt that CBD oil was found to have significant soothing properties. It’s often used in skincare for sensitive skin as it helps to calm and normalise the skin and subsequently reduce skin redness and sensitivity.
