The antioxidant, anti-inflammation, superhuman qualities of CBD
Could CBD be mother earth’s solution to slowing down father time? If you’re wondering why CBD has suddenly become a such a major player in the skin care industry, it really all comes down to that one big, bad word – inflammation. The root cause of everything from acne to aging, inflammation can be extremely difficult to target and regulate. However, dermatologists, scientists, and health care experts agree that CBD has likely emerged as the secret weapon. When applied topically or ingested, CBD’s anti-inflammation properties, essential fatty acids, and vitamins (A, D, and E) immediately go to work for the body. Lotions and creams that rely on active ingredients like Retinoid or steroids actually makes the skin worse before the reaction reverses. Not CBD. The effects of the cannabidiol compound in skin receptors is positive at application.
What skin ailments can CBD help treat and prevent? Dry skin, eczema, and psoriasis to name a few. For many users, the analgesic (pain-killing) properties of CBD have provided not only long-lasting relief, but life-changing results in targeting achy joints and pain points. There’s also great benefits in making CBD a part of your daily topical ritual, as the compound tends to accumulate in the upper skin layers and it’s theorized by many practicing physicians that stored CBD can provide a longer-term relief.
At the end of the day – especially a long one – the CBD market has arrived to make you feel good, which is what well-being is all about! Humans naturally produce what’s known as a ‘bliss molecule,’ which lends itself to a feel-good buzz after physical activity. Cannabidiol creates sensations of euphoria by greeting these receptors in a similar way. Of course, maybe you’re just looking for a new massage trick. If that’s case, look no further than adding a CBD cream to your repertoire… and if this ever-growing industry has anything to say about it, you won’t need to look very far.
