Cannabis is being used to keep people beautiful
There may be some skeptics who believe that the introduction of new cbd-infused products may be nothing more than an attempt to capitalize on the current fervor surrounding marijuana. However, research continues to show that the natural plant has a number of positive benefits on the body, both internally and externally. CBD-infused creams are now gaining in popularity as a way to treat a number of skin-related ailments.
Cannabis is being added to creams and lotions in order to combat everything from wrinkles and acne to eczema and psoriasis. According to Adam Friedman, a dermatology professor with George Washington University, “This is going to be the best panacea for skin care and many other areas in medicine.” He adds that there is wide-ranging potential for cannabis and that “the sky’s the limit.”
The cannabinoids in cannabis are able to boost the body’s internal endocannabinoid system. The two most often recognized cannabinoids in cannabis are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the compound that results in the “high” feeling associated with marijuana consumption, while CBD has a seemingly endless list of benefits on the body, but doesn’t contain psychoactive ingredients as does THC.
Cannabis has also been shown to help in sebum production, an overproduction of which can cause acne. Cannabis helps curb the production to ultimately control acne. It can also help relieve inflammation and itchiness and, possibly, even skin cancer.
Friedman asserts, “Right now, my recommendation — are you going to cause harm if you buy a CBD oil or THC and CBD oil? Chances are no. And the question of if will you absorb enough for a psychoactive effect? All data says no.”
