Out of ideas for stocking stuffers? Look no further. There’s a new dawn in the world of beauty, and it all has to do with the latest “super” ingredient: cannabis. Cannabis lotions, salves, and creams have existed for many years, with their primary target being those seeking pain relief. But now that recreational marijuana use has been legalized in nine states as well as DC, and recently in Canada, the beauty industry is diving in head first to explore even more skin and health benefits of well known cannabis-derived ingredients.
With beauty brands quickly taking over the cannabis-derived industry, there’s now a variety of products that you can add to your beauty routine—all without the need to spark up. As some may know, the two main skin-healing ingredients found in cannabis-derived products are hemp oil and cannabidiol (CBD oil). Although hemp oil and CBD oil are quite in their properties, they aren’t exactly the same thing and therefore don’t share all of the same benefits. Dr. Joshua Hartsel, the CEO of Speakeasy 710, says that CBD oil has phenomenal anti-inflammatory, soothing, and pain relieving properties. This makes it the ideal ingredient for acne, anti-aging, and susnscreen products. Its skin-healing properties are so effective that CBD oil is also used to treat burn victims who have been affected by everything from the sun to those going through radiation. It’s truly a medicinal ingredient that works from both within and topically to promote health and beauty!
On the other hand, hemp oil comes from the Sativa plant. But don’t worry, these ingredients won’t get you high—just high praise for your new glow. Hemp strains do have a tiny percentage of psychoactive compounds, but after further processing, these compounds are reduced down to zero. The oil is extracted from hemp seeds, which is packed with essential nutrients like lipids and omega fatty acids. Like CBD oil, hemp oil reduces inflammation. This makes it an excellent moisturizing agent in skin and hair products. Companies like Oyin Handmade incorporate hemp oil in their hair products to nourish the scalp and stimulate hair growth. Both hemp oil and CBD oil work with our bodies’ own natural endocannabinoid system which maintains the basal cell life cycle. This system is responsible for 90% of the cells in the epidermis, so maintain this system is one of the most important ways we can allow for radiant, glowing skin.
To see what all of the hype was about, our team here at Beauty Advisor tested out several CBD/help products meant to keep your skin and (pout) hydrated and moisturized. Interested in which of the top cannabis-derived beauty products can revive your regular routing? Find out in our list below!
