These are just a few of peer-reviewed studies that show cannabinoids like CBD are an effective treatment for certain skin conditions. With the relaxing of cannabis laws now and in the future, we will see many more studies breaking ground in the effectiveness of CBD as a skin treatment. What is more important is that CBD is widely accepted as a well-known treatment for pain and inflammation which goes hand-in-hand with general skin conditions. Our skin is our protection from external factors like the sun, wind and stress. This often leads to the skin being left dry, itchy, inflamed or in pain. Using a CBD topical treatment such as a salve or lotion can limit these symptoms and help your skin feel rejuvenated and refreshed.
There is still a long legal and research road to walk when it comes to cannabinoids. But essentially the science is already backing cannabis as an effective treatment for many diseases and conditions. You do not need to be suffering from something before using a CBD product. Incorporating it into your daily beauty and body regimen could protectively help your skin in the long run.
