Skin care products with CBD.
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is added to added to soaps, serums, creams, and other skin care products for its purported health benefits.
Why is it good for your skin?
Known for its healing properties, "cannabidiol offers some serious antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits which can be beneficial in treating skin concerns like inflammation, dryness and free radical damage," says Ildi Pekar, NYC-based aesthetician and founder of her own eponymous skincare line.
CBD might also be effective in fighting acne as it helps reduce the production of sebum in the skin. Additionally, studies indicate that cannabidiol may be effective in treating eczema and psoriasis as well.
Also, is it legal?
According to the 2018 Farm Bill, cannabinoids derived from industrial hemp, containing less than 0.3% THC, are legal.
"CBD is legal in all 50 states as a supplement, but infusing it into food and other products is an open question," says Donnelly.
"The government’s position on CBD is confusing," notes Dr. Peter Grinspoon in a Harvard Health report.
"While the federal government still considers CBD in the same class as marijuana, it doesn’t habitually enforce against it. Currently, many people obtain CBD online without a medical cannabis license," Dr. Grinspoon points out.
