Beauty and Bud? Benefits of Cannabis in Beauty Products
Doesn’t it just sound natural? With everything we are learning about Cannabis, it is almost impossible to miss the benefits it offers in beauty products. If it is discovered that a daily glass of red wine is good for your heart and even prevents cancer, then just as easily it is to believe that something as natural as cannabis is good in beauty products.
The healing benefits of Cannabis is no secret and big-brand names like Dr. Bronner’s and The Body Shop had been using hemp as an ingredient for a long time now, even before cannabis was legalized in several states. Because of the THC and CBD present in cannabis, the anti-inflammatory and anti-aging benefits are amazing for the skin. The skin has its own endocannabinoid system and cannabis as an anti-oxidant helps to slow down aging and protects against free radicals. It is also rich in zinc, potassium, magnesium and iron, all health benefits for a healthy skin.
Most beauty products are at the moment made out of Hemp. Hemp products can be found all over the USA. Some companies like Cannabis Basics are creating products with both cannabis and hemp. But the cannabis line is only available in legalized states. Look for more companies to get involved as more states legalize cannabis.
Not one of the beauty products will make you high, if anyone has doubts about it. Cannabis oil products are non-psychoactive as they bind to the CBD2 receptors and do not enter the bloodstream. CBD2 receptors are most of the time found outside of the brain and central nervous system. This makes it perfectly safe to use as there is no fear of getting high or being tested positive for drug abuse.
An excellent benefit of using Cannabis as a beauty product is that as a plant, it works as a vegetable protein. It is high in omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids and does not just act as a lubricant, but also nourish and strengthen from the inside out. Studies have shown that cannabinoids are responsible for lipid production and it is therefore excellent for treating acne or dry skin.

On is just dressed up better that the other and the most attractive will win hands down. Cannabis Beauty Defined is moving into the luxury beauty line with CBD rich, anti-aging benefits.
