WHY IS CBD GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN?
CBD, Cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound extracted from the Cannabis Sativa plant. Unlike its cousin, THC (abundant in the type cannabis that is smoked), CBD will not get you high as it has no psychoactive effects.
To understand how CBD benefits our skin we need a bit of biological context. All humans have an Endocannabinoid System (our ECS), which works to maintain bodily homeostasis (balance) and general wellbeing. When ingested or applied topically to the skin, CBD binds to receptors in the ECS to alleviate inflammation, which can help diminish signs of skin dryness, redness, and blemishes.
