Cannabis has been in the market for a while now and it has become trusted for glowing skin.CBD-infused beauty products have been growing in popularity, with entire brands now dedicated to the healing properties CBD hemp oil has when used topically. But there are still a lot of misconceptions about CBD-infused beauty products, so we went to the experts to get some answers.

First, the big question you’re wondering: CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning you’re not going to get high from using any of these products. CBD hemp oil is sourced from hemp with lower levels of THC than marijuana, (which is responsible for altered mental state) and high levels of CBD. It’s also a rich source of fatty acids and other nutrients that benefit your skin, says Francesca Fusco, MD, a dermatologist based in New York City.

“Studies have shown it can improve reduced barrier function, improve hydration, minimize moisture loss, and decrease inflammation,” she explains.

Many of the products are geared towards CBD oil’s anti-inflammatory benefits because “the primary receptor for CBD (CB2) is found on immune cells,” which is where inflammation takes place, notes Adam Friedman, MD, a dermatologist in Washington D.C. This is major, because many skin conditions are connected to inflammation, which is why there are so many conversations about the power of CBD in the beauty industry right now.

More research on CBD oil and its benefits is needed, but Dr. Friedman points out that the ingredient’s ability to regulate cell growth, reduce inflammation, and stimulate important fats in the skin and sebaceous glands could help inform treatments for other skin issues, such as dry skin, psoriasis, and eczema.

According to Dr. Friedman, cannabis beauty products are certainly worth a try. He reiterates that the benefits are “strongly supported by several pilot studies,” not to mention that many users swear by them.
