Let us first start off with the basics about CBD or cannabidiol.
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, it is one of many compounds of cannabinoids that are extracted from the cannabis Sativa plant.
Why put CBD oil in beauty products?
When you apply the CBD products to your skin it will not enter the bloodstream but will stay in the skin’s upper layers.
A 2014 study found that cannabidiol helps suppress breakouts by regulating the oil production of the sebaceous glands. This allows for the anti-inflammatory properties to directly treat skin issues like acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
There still needs to be done more research but with the results that researchers and doctors have seen, it might be the answer to clear skin.
Okay, but before we continue, let me answer the question most of you have been wondering about. Can CBD make you high?
No, it is THC that makes you high and cannabidiol contains as little as 0.3 percent THC and that is not enough to make you high.
What does the cannabidiol in all these beauty products do?
The reason they want to use CBD in beauty products is because of its anti-inflammatory and pain killing properties. Scientists are finding more evidence that it can treat dry skin, psoriasis, and eczema, and this is why the ingredient is used in so many face creams, serums, and body lotions. “Inflammation is the root of all evil, whether that’s acne or the signs of aging,” says New York City dermatologist Dendy Engelman, who notes that while acne rates are increasing, there aren’t many new treatment options coming down the pike. (“Most often, they’re reformulating benzoyl peroxide, or a retinoid, or some kind of acid,” she says.) As it turns out, cannabidiol might be the answer to clear skin.
A 2014 study found that:” CBD helps suppress breakouts by regulating the oil production of the sebaceous glands. That could be good news if you’ve got acne and want to avoid drugs like Accutane and spironolactone.
There is still a lot of research that needs to be done, but skin doctors feel positive.
