Perhaps we need to back up and start with, WHAT is CBD oil and how does it work in general. CBD oil is from the marijuana plant. CBD is short for cannabidiol and is just one of over 80 compounds cannabinoids extracted from the cannabis sativa plant. Probably the two most well known compounds are CBD and THC, the part of the plant that gets you high. Interestingly, our bodies make our own cannabis-type chemical called anandamide. Which is also known as the ‘bliss molecule.’ Increasing your anandamide levels can have anti-inflammatory effects.
SO….How Does CBD oil in Skincare work?
There are actually a number of ways that CBD oil is being used in skincare. What’s more, because of the legality around CBD oil, we’re still in the exploring stages and are discovering more each day. Currently, though, CBD oil is being used to treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, and more. Thus, you’re likely seeing it pop up in more face creams, serums, and lotions these days. One of the ways CBD oil is helping treat acne is because acne can be caused by excess sebum levels. CBD oil has been found to help balance those levels. Our own Kaylie Johnson has had a long journey with her fight against acne. Sheryl Stegeman, from our Highlands Ranch salon has been treating her with CBD oil treatments. The treatments, in Kaylie's words, have changed her life. Another way CBD oil is treating skin is through its anti-inflammatory efforts. Making it appeal to those who suffer achy joints and sore muscles.
