Why we use CBD in our skincare

Hype or hoax?

Full Spectrum CBD has been studied for its relaxing, pain-relieving, and anti-anxiety properties when taken internally. However, recent research has shown that it also has calming and therapeutic benefits when applied topically to the skin.

A restorative solution for all skin types including acne-prone and sensitive skin, CBD has been shown to help reduce inflammation and support the skin’s natural healing process.

What they say

Jessica Assaf, Cannabis Feminist founder + clean beauty activist

"Most people are surprised to learn that in addition to being a plant with vast medicinal applications, cannabis is a really powerful skincare ingredient. It has been shown to relieve pain, protect skin against free radicals, treat acne and heal dry skin—all with superior anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.”

According to cannabis educator Emma Chasen, “CBD may have topical anti-inflammatory benefits. It may also help to modulate the immune response when applied topically i.e. modulating histamine response to speed up healing.”

Also, CBD has been shown to help with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and chronic acne. However, she adds, “There is no known research regarding the stimulation of collagen or anti-aging properties associated with CBD.”
