Marijuana is known for its many medicinal benefits. Most people who use skin care products made from marijuana swear by it, claiming the skincare products are hydrating to their skin and lips. They also say that marijuana-based beauty products have anti-inflammatory properties. At the same time, beauty experts claim that cannabis-infused beauty products have medical properties and could heal skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry scalp.
Despite the claims, most publicly available information on the effects of cannabis-infused skincare products is largely anecdotal. However, according to two recent studies, there might be some truth to these claims. Clinical research conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information and the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology shows that, indeed, beauty care products made from cannabis have anti-aging properties. The two studies also show these products contain an antioxidant.
The cannabinoid molecules released by cannabis-infused beauty products interact with the body’s inbuilt endocannabinoid system. The studies also showed that cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, especially CBD, triggered lipid production when released in our bodies, demonstrating their efficiency in treating acne and dry skin problems. CBD has also proven to be an effective treatment solution for various skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis and muscle cramps.
Sensimilla soaps and soaks
Cannabis seeds have anti-inflammatory properties. This explains why they are an excellent solution for acne. Their anti-inflammatory nature helps reduce the activity of oil glands in our bodies. A cannabis rich soap can help with sore muscles, joints, and other pains. The beauty of cannabis-infused soaps is that they deliver a genuine body buzz without the psychoactive effects, so they are safe to use for the whole family. Some cannabis-infused soaps can be derived from CBD, THC or both. The rule of thumb is that they must be made from materials that are gentle to the skin.
In recent years, warm water baths filled with marijuana bath soaps are becoming increasingly popular. For long, warm water baths are known for opening skin pores. Once the skin pores are fully open, the skin is able to absorb cannabinoids. Warning to ladies: Canna-bath soaks have been found to cause a slight high because of vaginal exposure.
Lifted Lip Care
Cannabis-infused lip balms are all the rage for people with chapped lips. They sooth chapped lips and are a legal way of using marijuana, without the stigma that’s associated with the drug. The lip balms allow you to enjoy the full benefits of marijuana. While some have a small percentage of THC, all cannabis lip balms should essentially have CBD oil, which helps the lips to rebuild their oil barrier.
Hemp Hand Protection
Hemp hand protector is a popular product that has existed for many years. In fact, the Body Shop has manufactured it for a long time, starting out before cannabis became a cool thing. With legalization, orders for the Body Shop’s hemp hand protector have shot through the roof, making it the shop’s best-selling product. Topicals and creams made of cannabis treat a number of skin conditions, including dry skin, rheumatoid arthritis flare-ups as well as sunburns.
Cannabis Flower Fragrances
The cannabis flower fragrances are ideal for people who love wearing fragrances. It can be applied anywhere on the body and delivers that earthy, delicate scent with an eastern European boutique accent.
Anti-aging Potions Medicated with Marijuana
A full spectrum face moisturizer that’s made from hemp oil helps to protect your skin throughout the day. Oil from cannabis seeds is also useful when it comes to combating skin degradation as it stimulates the oil production functions of the skin to keep it firm.
