CBD In Skin Care Treatments
Submitted by Marijuana News on Tue, 09/15/2020 - 09:57
Including CBD in your skincare is so hot right now. It’s estimated to be a $580 million global market. But it may not just be a fashionable fad – research is indicating cannabidiol may be effective in treating a number of skin problems.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural chemical compound found in hemp and marijuana. The cannabinoid isn’t intoxicating, it won’t get you high and it is seriously gaining traction in the world of medicine for its potential to reduce the effects of anxiety, insomnia, pain, inflammation and some forms of epilepsy. Skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis may be next on the list of conditions treated or managed by CBD.
While many skincare treatments focus on the wellness angle, boasting CBD as a natural ingredient that soothes and calms skin, it’s likely that there’s a lot more to the use of serums or oils containing CBD. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD lend to its use in topical treatments that relieve inflammation or dryness, as well as being a option worth investigating for those with sensitive skin.
