If you're also considering jumping on the CBD bandwagon, but don't know where to start, here's an overview of everything about CBD skin care.


First of all, what is CBD?

Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a natural chemical compound found in cannabis plants (e.g. marijuana and hemp). It is one of the two main active ingredients in cannabis, the other being THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

Unlike THC, pure CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, which means it doesn't make you feel high.

Research shows that CBD may be effective in relieving anxiety, chronic inflammation and pain, insomnia and some rare forms of childhood epilepsy. In addition, a long-term study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease found that CBD may help prevent cognitive decline. In addition, according to a review published in the journal Neurotherapeutics, CBD may also be effective in the treatment of substance use disorders.


Why is it good for your skin?

Known for its healing properties, "cannabidiol offers serious antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits that may be beneficial in treating skin problems such as inflammation, dryness and free radical damage."

CBD could also be effective in fighting acne because it helps reduce the production of sebum in the skin. In addition, studies indicate that cannabidiol may also be effective in the treatment of eczema and psoriasis.


How to choose the right CBD skin care product?

All cannabidiol-infused products are formulated with full spectrum CBD oil, broad spectrum CBD oil or CBD isolate.

Full-spectrum CBD oil contains all the compounds found in hemp, including traces of THC. Broad-spectrum CBD oil, on the other hand, contains a range of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids derived from hemp, but no THC.

CBD isolate is the purest version of CBD. It does not contain any other compounds that you would find in a hemp plant. This form of CBD oil is best for facial skin because it is pure, does not clog pores, and is packed with skin-rejuvenating antioxidants.


Also, is it legal?

Yes. In November 2020, the European Court of Justice issued a ruling stating that cannabidiol extracted from the cannabis plant should not be considered a drug under the 1961 United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs.
