Now that cannabis has been legal in Canada for just about a year and the American Congress has passed a bill to legalize the production of hemp, we’re seeing a lot more of it in products; particularly in the beauty industry and in our skincare routines. Though its CBD, (not THC), that’s being recognized as a highly effective ingredient in plant-based skincare products for its many benefits, some studies say that CBD makes an ultra-effective treatment for irritated skin

CBD is a substance extracted from the flower and the leaves of the hemp plant, which are high in cannabinoids (a group of active chemical compounds that stimulate balance in our bodies). Unlike plain hemp seed oil, (an ingredient that’s been used in natural skincare for decades), that comes from cold pressing the seeds of the hemp plant. Interestingly enough, our skin has native receptors for cannabinoids that enable plant extracts to be fully absorbed in less than no time. These make CBD all the more effective in relieving inflammation, reducing breakouts and soothing redness.

Here Are 5 stand-out skincare products with superstar ingredient, CBD. Consider adding them to your routine for an overall healthier complexion.
