That’s right! You read correctly. 2018 is not only the Year of the Dog, but also the year we start seeing more products produced with cannabis. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise…considering all the “natural and organic” cleaning products, shampoo, and food we’re seeing on the shelves these days. So, why not skincare?
Take a look at the products you use on a daily basis. What are they made of? How do the ingredients serve you? (NOTE: If what you’re using works perfectly and you’re happy with your skin – that’s great!) If you’re not happy with your complexion, maybe that’s because it’s lacking the ingredients it needs to be healthy and shine! For example, when someone is dehydrated they may suffer from thirst, fatigue, headaches, etc. because they need water! The body literally sends out an SOS – telling you what it needs to function properly. SO, your skin may not be cooperating because your products are not supplying it with the proper tools. With this being said, know that CBD oils are high in vitamins A, C and E, as well as high in the omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. All of which our skin likes and needs to maintain a healthy, glowing appearance.
Now, if you grew up watching President Nixon declare the “War on Drugs”, I can understand you may still have a stigma against marijuana, hemp, and cannabis use. Although, he turned out to be a criminal himself (but that’s a convo for a different blog). These oils will not get you high or lead you through the “gateway” to the Kingdom of Drugs. They are non-psychoactive and 100% legal.
According to Medical Marijuana Inc., “Cannabidiol (CBD hemp oil) is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp, unlike medical marijuana products, which are usually made from plants with high concentrations of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, these hemp oil products are non-psychoactive. Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids presently identified in the cannabis plant and is the second most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana after THC. In hemp, however, THC is only present in trace amounts, while CBD dominates the plant’s makeup.”
