13 Dec CBD for Topical Use
Cannabis has the potential to make you look and feel great when applied to the skin with appropriate carrier oils. Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, has some benefits when applied topically. Extraordinarily, “it reduces inflammation, but it has also been shown to lower sebum production, a factor in acne,” says Adam Friedman, MD, a dermatologist in Washington, D.C. Also noteworthy: “It’s non-psychoactive and doesn’t have THC in it, meaning it won’t alter your mental state,” points out N.Y.C.—based cosmetic dermatologist Sejal Shah, MD. You will not get high or fail a drug test, but you can use it to boost your radiance and relieve muscle aches.
Using CBD topically has a direct effect on immune cells, where inflammation arises. Many dermatological researchers are optimistic about the role CBD will play in treating psoriasis and eczema. The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology’s recent review of published studies determined that cell receptors respond well to CBD-infused products, leaving users with skin that’s less sensitive, less inflamed, and less itchy.
For skincare, the oil is used for its “antioxidant and neuroprotective properties—the ability to repair the skin barrier,” explains Dr. Shah, and “it contains fatty acids that are moisturizing.”
