Do Cannabis-Infused Beauty Products Actually Work?
Is it true that cannabinoids (CBD) have anti-inflammatory qualities when applied topically? Is a question I was asked recently. I took a dive into CBD medical research.
First of all, CBD will not get you high, as it is a non-psychoative product. There is already a lot of research that has been done, specifically with CBD oil. I found several studies dealing with topical applied CBD. One study looked at cannabinoids in dermatology in general and the other study said that CBD can help reduce oil production and thereby have anti-acne and anti-inflammatory qualities.
The study wasn’t perfectly well-rounded, but CBD does have merit. It would be preferable if there was a randomized controlled trial out there, for the nay-sayers.
Several studies show that CBD benefits your skin, because it is a rich source of fatty acids and other beneficial nutrients. It has shown to improve reduced barrier function, meaning your skin is better protected for inflammation. Therefor it works as a anti-inflammatory. It minimizes moisture loss by improving hydration, which improves the flexibility of your skin.
There are already fervent fans who have been using CBD lotions and creams already, specifically for pain relief. There are multiple medical studies published which demonstrate efficacy.
My tip of the day: “Put it on your feet and you can dance all night long. It’s perfect for long nights in high heels, my friends love it and I have a little bottle in my handbag”.
Everything You Need To Know About CBD-Infused Beauty Products
I get sent so many different brands saying they have CBD in their beauty products, and the stuff then turns out to have so little to none in it and obviously that stuff does not work! It is difficult to tell which products hold up to scrutiny.
Another issue is that there is confusion in the terminology. The cannabis plant is super complex and has multiple compounds. CBD (CannaBiDiol) is one of them and THC (TetraHydroCannabinol) is the other. CBD is non-psychoactive, which means you won’t get high, but THC is definitely psychoactive and is able to get you high! These two caanbinoids also differ in how they are regulated. THC is a heavily regulated ingredient, considered a schedule 1 drug, meaning it’s federally illegal. And CBD and industrial Hemp is legal.
The biggest strength for CBD infused beauty products is for CBD’s anti-inflammatory benefits. I’ll explain how this works. The human body has an immune system which host a defense system comprising many biological structures and processes within an organism that protects against disease immune cells to protect you from bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi. And the primary receptor for CBD, to be specific CB-2, is found on those immune cells, which will protect your skin for inflammation. And skin conditions are connected to inflammation.

There actually is something to this beauty trend. Cannabidiol, better known as CBD has been proven in studies to have number of health-related benefits, from soothing muscles to improving your skin texture. CBD is just majorly trending. Why? There has been done a lot of studies on this particular subject and it shows that CBD is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. It can help your skin recover and it is all natural.
Many devout users swear by CBD infused beauty products and I personally think that they are certainly worth a try!
