Everything You Need to Know About CBD in the Beauty Industry

An increasing number of people are becoming aware of the harmful side effects of chemical additives in beauty, health, and even wellness products. For this reason, plant extracts such as CBD are a great natural alternative.

To understand how CBD works, it is important to know that CBD and THC are best known as cannabinoids (the name given to the natural compounds found in cannabis).

The cannabinoids produced by the body are called the ‘endocannabinoid system’. Cannabinoid receptors are found in tissues throughout the body, not just in the brain, and CBD has therapeutic effects by stimulating and activating cannabinoid receptors in our nerve cells and skin cells.

What are the benefits of the beauty of CBD products?

CBD has been highlighted by many as a natural herbal alternative to Western medicine for a variety of ailments including chronic stiffness and pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, arthritis and insomnia (to name a few). Clinical trials of CBD are limited, but in June 2018 the FDA approved it for the treatment of two rare forms of epilepsy. What are the benefits for the beauty?

It is believed that the biggest advantage of CBD related to beauty is its anti-inflammatory effect. These properties are extremely important, because they help to be reduced the immune reactions.

CBD also reduces itching, which is one of its most promising uses and benefits.

Currently, there are not many products that effectively reduce itching and redness, so CBD is promising in this area.

What is hemp oil? The biggest strength is that it is rich in omega fatty acids and has strong emollient properties. This means it is a natural and powerful moisturiser for dry hair and skin, but not necessarily as powerful as other oils.

What should I look for when looking for beauty products containing CBD?

1. Make sure it’s really CBD

Sometimes you see misleading ads, but hemp seed oil and hemp seed oil are not CBD. So if you’re looking for a product with CBD, make sure the ingredients list includes cannabidiol.

2. Look at the concentration

A higher concentration of CBD (usually measured in milligrams) usually means higher potency (but can also affect price). However, CBD is more important than milligrams. Of course, pay attention to the concentration, but don’t focus on it. Check also the other ingredients and ask about the products you use on a daily basis.

3. Pay attention to the difference between full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD

Full-spectrum CBD contains more cannabinoids and less than 0.3% THC than CBD alone. Broad-spectrum CBD contains more cannabinoids and no THC than CBD alone. Zcann Organics uses CBD isolate, which is the purest form of CBD and does not contain any THC.
