Cannabis is having a cover girl moment. Popping up in everything from sleep masks to mascara, it’s never been easier to add cannabis to your beauty routine.
Cannabis beauty products aren’t just a fad, either. Regulation has hampered cannabis research until now, but legalization is boosting efforts to study the health benefits of cannabinoids. Early research shows the importance of the endocannabinoid system in maintaining healthy skin. A study published in 2014 indicates that CBD is effective in the reduction of sebum and treatment of acne. A more thorough look at the role of cannabinoids in skin processes such as eczema and psoriasis was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
Not to mention that CBD oil is also high in omega fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants
which is aces for your anti-aging regimen. The non-psychotropic effects of cannabidiol make it safe to use throughout the day. As we move toward broader legalization, we are sure to see more of this skin superfood.
