What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol and is one of over 80 compounds extracted from the cannabis sativa plant. The two most well-know compounds that are extracted are CBD (which does not get you high) and THC (which does). CBD is a non-psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, sourced from the flowers of cannabis plants.
CBD has lots of anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties which can help reduce puffiness, swelling and even soreness which is why it has been helping people for a long time with pain management. It’s an all in one solution as it is able to target all of these problems simultaneously.
How does it work?
Studies have shown that CBD can potentially be helpful for people who suffering with acne, helping to reduce inflammation and give a more youthful appearance. It has a soothing effect on the skin, just as other natural oils that are used in skincare, the natural fatty acids and antioxidants make it a great option for people with dry skin or eczema. Initial studies have shown it is a great ingredient in products to reduce redness, irritation and signs of ageing.
