We’re sending you all beautiful rays of light today, and hoping you’re all well. In a recent article, we read that CBD sales have skyrocketed over the last 3 months, which given where we’ve all been makes perfect sense. It’s exciting to see that CBD is really being seen for what it is – a safe, natural way to impart calmness and serenity, to bring the mind and nervous system into balance, and that CBD is not psychoactive and cannot make you “high”.
So while that understanding is becoming clear, the number one question we still receive is “why is CBD good for the skin?”. It’s a really great question. We once again spent time with our Co-Founder/Pharmacist Dr. Judit Konrad to get the skinny.
It’s actually pretty simple…the number one reason that our skin ages and the root cause of many skin issues is the accumulation of low-grade, chronic inflammation. Cannabinoids (which is CBD) are potent anti-inflammatory agents. It’s their whole reason for existing. It’s also an antioxidant which protects the skin and counteracts free radical production. This is because CBD is made up of not only nourishing Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids but also has vitamins A, D, and E. It is truly a healing powerhouse of a plant. All of this translates into the skin.
