CBD for Skincare

CBD or cannabidiol has emerged as one of the revolutionary medicinal compounds in recent medical history. All of this is possible due to the natural therapeutic benefits that the use of CBD promises and delivers for a medical marijuana patient. This is also the reason why it is experimented with so often worldover.

The sparkling city of Los Angeles, which is home to many celebrities and famous influencers understands the significance of using CBD in skin care formulations.

For a beginner who isn’t aware about it, we have covered all relevant information regarding this in our blog down below. Let us tick off each of the important pointers one by one.

How Does CBD Work for Skin Care?

The first question that pops in the mind of any CBD enthusiast is whether there are any studies that prove the skincare benefits of CBD. A special study has indeed talked about cannabidiol’s sebostatic and antiinflammatory effects on human sebocytes. This particular study is often considered to be a trailblazing one.

Why is this study so important?
In the words of a layman, this study pointed out the beneficial effects that the use of CBD can have for a person with acne ridden skin. Due to its sebostatic and anti-inflammatory effects it can reduce the size and appearance of pimples on the skin if applied topically. This was a major finding that drove many minds to using CBD for skincare.

Another important research that contributed significantly to this discussion was one which talked about the anti-ageing benefits of this special cannabinoid. Anti-ageing products sell like hotcakes. Humans are scared of the future in which they envision themselves with a head of white hair with ugly wrinkled skin. They can go to any length to appear younger or prolong the plumpness of their skin. For this reason, the anti-ageing property of cannabidiol became the talk of the town. This was also why CBD skin care products became so popular in the market.

Since CBD can work effectively for both acne and ageing, the two skincare nightmares for any normal human, it automatically becomes super important.

Read About Which Type of CBD Is Used in the Formulation

CBD has been classified into three major divisions. This classification is done on the basis of the presence of trace amounts of THC or any other cannabinoids in the type of CBD used in the product.

  • It will be a CBD Isolate product when the CBD used is pure. No other cannabinoids or any of the naturally occurring substances like flavonoids or terpenes can be traced in it.
  • Alternatively it will be a Full spectrum CBD product when certain trace amounts of THC or any of the other cannabinoids such as CBG (cannabigerol) and antioxidant compounds are present in it. It is important to add here that the amount of THC will always be less than 0.3%, which is why it will be legal to use on the federal level.
  • A Broad spectrum CBD product is one which will have no detectable level of THC.
