Hemp for the Skin? Is it Buzz or is it Worthy?

Written By: HollyHoux

Here’s a quick beauty lesson on why we feel this natural compound is stellar for your skin. 


Cannabidiol is just one of the hundreds of cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Another is THC which gives you a high when ingested. Our collection gives you high quality - our product formulation includes certified broad-spectrum CBD, which means there is no trace of THC.

On the other hand, full-spectrum CBD contains CBD and many other cannabinoids (such as THC).


Both full and broad-spectrum CBD contain terpenes, fatty acids, and other beneficial compounds that work with your skin to:

>> Reduce inflammation: although acne has many potential external/internal factors (hello menstrual cycle), inflammation is a proven cause. CBD helps to ease inflammatory nerve pathways, which can also reduce redness and irritation.

>> Reverse signs of aging: CBD contains antioxidants that help reverse damage caused by free radicals, reducing the appearance of fine lines, dullness, and wrinkles.


>> Control oil production: our skin naturally produces oil as protection for our skin, however sometimes excess production can lead to clogged pores which then turn into pimples. CBD inhibits oil production, which can help to fight acne and balance out your complexion. 

>> Soothe the skin: CBD is perfect for sensitive skin as it soothes redness and dryness.


That's all the good stuff. But, next, how do you choose the best CBD products? 

1. The ingredient list should state “cannabidiol,” hemp seed oil or extract is not the same as CBD oil.
2. Look for the content in milligrams
3. Check for third-party certifications 



So is it buzz, or is it worthy?
