Can CBD Make Your Skin Glow?

Aging causes an adverse effect on our skin. Once a person enters the late 40s, their skin starts losing its solidity, which results in dullness and wrinkles on the face. To fight wrinkles, people undergo skin treatment. Though its effect could be seen instantly, it isn’t long-lasting. Some people also apply creams on their skin to make it glow. However, it isn’t a permanent solution either. Unfortunately, dull skin and wrinkles are a part of aging. However, your skin can glow once again if you keep using CBD infused beauty products.

Is CBD a drug?

Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the 113 identified cannabinoids found in the Cannabis Plant. CBD accounts for 40% of the plant’s extract. Various researches on CBD suggest that this naturally occurring compound can be used for treating different illnesses and disorders in humans, including epilepsy, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, etc. CBD can be taken into the body through various means such as smoke, vapor, ointment, cream, etc. Because of its relation to the Cannabis Plant, it is suspected as a drug. However, it isn’t true. Unlike other cannabinoids like THC, CBD doesn’t cause any psychoactive effect or what they call a ‘high’ effect. 

How is CBD different from THC?

Surprisingly, both CBD and THC have the same molecular formula, C21H30O2. Only a couple of atoms are arranged differently in both compounds. Plus, the way both compounds bind with the cannabinoid receptors found in the human body. Our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is composed of endocannabinoids that bind with the two cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2. Both CB1 and CB2 receptors are present throughout our body. CB1 receptors are dominantly present in the Central Nervous System, whereas, CB2 receptors are mainly found in the Immune System and peripheral tissues. CBD, being one of the cannabinoids, binds more with CB2 receptors and less with CB1 receptors. As a result, it helps our body fight various illnesses without causing any psychoactive effect.

How CBD nourishes your skin?

After a certain age, the pores of our skin stop replenishing automatically resulting in a dull or wrinkled face. CBD infused cream or oil acts as a cleansing agent and opens the pores of your skin and improves blood circulation. This removes the dead cells and makes the skin glow

Thousands of CBD infused products have flooded the market in recent years. Ecommerce websites have started offering CBD products for humans and pets.
