Cannabidiol (CBD) is derived from the cannabis plant and differs from its counterpart cannabinoids (THC) in that it does not produce a euphoric high. While it is, therefore, of little interest to recreational cannabis users, CBD is anything but useless! It is rapidly becoming known as a “miracle cure” for many health-related issues. A natural anti-inflammatory, CBD is being studied for a wide variety of uses from treating depression to chronic pain to acne.
Because CBD has so many therapeutic and healing benefits, it is of growing interest to the beauty industry as well. Topical applications of CBD can work wonders for those afflicted with eczema or other irritating skin conditions.
Topical uses of cannabis, versus cannabis that is ingested or smoked by users, are proving to be some of the best natural moisturizers for skin, with incredible healing and anti-aging properties. There are many ways to benefit from CBD lotion applied to the skin, and we’ll walk you through how it can be done in a few easy steps at home with creams you can make yourself.
