Let’s get one thing straight before going over the effects of CBD, and that is it is not to be confused with THC. THC is known for its psychoactive properties and a plethora of other side effects. CBD on the other hand doesn’t cause a high and used properly can have many beneficial benefits. This includes brighter illuminated skin, improved moisturization, and an even skin tone just to name a few!
Research suggests that CBD used topically can help with pain management, acne, eczema, psoriasis, sensitivity, and can even be anti-aging. When used for acne it can aid with sebum (oil) control, it is anti-inflammatory, and contains antimicrobial properties that assist in acne reduction. It has been shown to soothe, reduce skin irritation, dryness, and itching which can alleviate symptoms associated with eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis. Not to mention that CBD also contains antioxidants which are beneficial in the prevention of the appearance of aging. That all being said, CBD is versatile in that it can be a great option for many different skin types.
