WHY WE LOVE CBD... In general
CBD is being used as an aid to traditional medicine. This chemical can counter the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and other similar conditions due to its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to soothe swelling, irritation, and pain. Orally ingested CBD can also increase the body’s production of anandamide (an endocannabinoid also known as cannabinoid-type chemicals) which enhances the body’s ability to fight inflammation making it an effective treatment for sunburn, eczema, and psoriasis. CBD’s ability to inhibit swelling and irritation makes it the perfect ally to fight pimple breakouts and acne. This is why this chemical is often added to regular treatments such as steroids.
One of the most common issues surrounding skin care regimens is addressing oily skin. Excessively oily skin can lead to clogged pores and pimples which can be aggravated if you use makeup and neglect to remove the product properly at the end of the day. The anti-oil properties of CBD are instrumental in preventing acne breakouts as the CBD is able to minimize sebum production and normalize an overactive sebaceous gland, making your face less oily and your pores less clogged.
NOURISHING AND MOISTURIZING
CBD-infused skin care products will both nourish and moisturizing your skin. This compound contains vitamins A, D, and E, as well as essential fatty acids that help make your skin look plumper and more radiant. The fatty acids found in CBD hemp oil include omega-6 and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which also facilitates moisturization without blocking your pores.
Cannabinoids work well in the human body because of the body’s ability to produce endocannabinoids. The amazing thing about the endocannabinoid system is that it’s not only able to regulate excesses, but it can also help supply chemicals that may be lacking. This means that if your body is low in antioxidants, a cannabinoid-like CBD can help supply your body and, hence, your skin with a vital boost. Antioxidants can minimize the appearance of wrinkles and give your skin a youthful glow by preventing the skin from becoming dry, thin and fragile. It’s this same endocannabinoid system that helps mollify the symptoms of psoriasis and eczema.
PAIN AND ITCH RELIEF
For serious medical conditions such arthritis CBD can relive pain patients may experience. The analgesic property of the compound, together with its anti-inflammatory properties, makes CBD an effective treatment for pain and itching caused by less serious conditions too like sunburn, bug bites, sores, bumps, and other similar conditions.
