CBD skin care - all you need to know
CBD oil is an answer to your dermatological needs
The skin is the largest organ and our body's first line of defense against unwanted organisms. As such, this protective layer has the highest amount and concentration of what are called cannabinoid receptors.
Cannabinoid receptors are located throughout the body as a part of our endocannabinoid system - a checks-and-balance matrix, which regulates a number of critical functions and responses such as stress, pain, appetite, inflammation, sleep, immunity and even processes like how much or how little oil our skin produces.
It turns out CBD has the same receptors as our skin, which is why our skin can respond well to the compound, and when CBD is used for medicinal or therapeutic purposes tied to the skin, it's believed to work by stimulating or impacting our skin's cannabinoid receptors "to better regulate pain, inflammation, bacteria, lipid production (which can lead to acne), the release of histamine as well as skin cell proliferation (which causes psoriasis).
CBD skin care products will not make you high or have any mind-altering effects as it is completely separate from THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive element in marijuana. Instead CBD has many soothing, reliving, and rejuvenating properties – making it the perfect skin care supplement.
CBD skincare products can be used to give targeted relief from a number of complaints, but they can also revitalize the skin, and restore natural balance.
CBD skincare products can safely be used in conjunction with oral CBD products like oils and capsules. However, they also offer an effective option on their own, for people who don’t want to take CBD orally but still want to experience the benefits of CBD.
