Firstly, What is Cannabidiol?
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a chemical compound present in cannabis plants, such as hemp and marijuana. It is among the main active cannabis ingredients, the second one being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Unlike the latter ingredient, pure cannabidiol is not a psychoactive form of cannabinoid, which means it will not give you a ‘high’. As per research findings, CBD is possibly effective in reducing anxiety, chronic pain and inflammation, some rare types of epilepsy, and insomnia. Furthermore, a study that came in the peer-reviewed Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease’, states that cannabidiol may help stop cognitive decline. Besides, as per a review in the journal Neurotherapeutics®, CBD may be effective when it comes to treating drug addiction as well.
Why is CBD Good for the Skin?
Ney Work City-based aesthetician, Ildi Pekar says, “Cannabidiol offers some serious antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits which can be beneficial in treating skin concerns like inflammation, dryness and free radical damage.”
CBD might be effective in tackling acne too because it helps to reduce the making of sebum, an oily substance, in the human skin. Besides, studies suggest that using it as part of psoriasis and eczema treatment may successfully produce the intended results.
The research about CBD’s advantages is rather limited, but using it topically is generally thought to be safe. “There is likely no harm in continuing to use a CBD-infused product you like,” says a certified dermatologist namely Adarsh Mudgil.
Now that you know about CBD’s potential benefits as a skincare product, think about how to select the right item for your skin issue or issues.
