CBD vs THC

The feeling of getting high when you use marijuana is due to the mind-altering properties of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD and THC are extracted from completely different parts of the marijuana plant.

Keep in mind that CBD oil is different from hemp oil. Some company brand the two as the same but they are not.

Acne

Studies show that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties. This means it can help acne-prone skin. Acne is defined as the occurrence of inflamed or infected sebaceous glands in the skin, this is another term for pimples. CBD decreases the chances of breakouts. CBD also lessens the production of excessive sebum (oil).

Anti-Aging and Wrinkles

Besides its anti-inflammatory effects, CBD also has antioxidant properties which help to lessen the signs of aging skin. It works by reducing the inflammation and neutralizing free-radical damage.

Sensitive Skin and Other Conditions

CBD can help to soothe sensitive skin and even improve skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

The popularity of CBD means there are many low-quality CBD products out there. Always ensure that you buy CBD products from a reputable brand.
