We’ll also answer every burning question you have! By the end of this blog post, you’ll know all there is to know about CBD, whether it’s right for you, and exactly how it can benefit your skincare routine. So, let’s dive in!
Firstly, CBD actually stands for Cannabidiol. What is Cannabidiol? It’s one of the primary cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. This comes from various plants known as industrial hemp and marijuana. If you’re wondering how exactly you get oil from a cannabis plant, there’s a very special process that takes place to retrieve it from the plant itself, much like a CO2 extraction. This is just one of the many reasons why CBD has become such a coveted and sought-after ingredient within the skincare industry!

What Are The Benefits of CBD Topical…
As with every new skincare ingredient, the various benefits are dependent on the product you choose and how your skin and your body reacts to it. With that in mind, we’ve listed below every benefit we can think of when using a CBD ointment, a CBD topical cream or a CBD infused salve to treat a specific area within your skincare routine or for massage!
- CBD skincare products are particularly effective for the reduction of aches, and pains
- You will also find they can aid in decreasing the inflammation around your muscles, this is perfect for those with particularly active lifestyles or those whose works means they are constantly lifting, overexert-ing or are on their feet all day long
- Topical CBD products can also help with inflammation in and around your joints and bones when used to massage the affected area
- We would also recommend these skincare products to those with a pre-existing injury which affects their daily movement and causes pain within their joints and muscles. Especially if they prefer some-thing a little more natural in place of prescription medications.
- Additionally, CBD ointments and creams will address issues, aches, and pains stemming from conditions such as arthritis, muscle spasms, and muscular sclerosis.
Hemp Products Or CBD Products?
There’s always a decision to be made when looking at new skincare products and the fact that you can choose between CBD or Hemp is both good and bad! On one hand, it’s great there’s so much choice but on the other, it’s always hard to narrow it down when there are so many products on offer and it can be confusing working out the difference between them. So, the difference is that hemp itself contains a considerably higher dosage of CBD. CBD comes from the stems, flowers, and stalks of the plant, but not from the seeds of the marijuana plant. Hemp products like hemp seed oil, derive from the seeds. That said, both are great for anti-inflammatory use and skin cell repair!
Are There Any Side Effects I Might Experience When Using CBD Oil?
Every product and ingredient has the potential to cause side effects to an individual if they’ve never used it before. Though most are okay with CBD in general, we have listed some of the more common side effects some experience when using it so you can decide if it’s right for your skin type before you go ahead and try it out for the first time!
CBD itself has been known to cause side effects such as diarrhea, dry mouth, reduced appetite, and some-times drowsiness. However, topical CBD such as a cream, gel or salve aren’t known to cause any of these side effects!
Can CBD Products Be Used For Anti-Aging Purposes?
Yes! Due to their anti-inflammatory qualities, there are many CBD products on offer which are recommended for anti-aging uses. Just like the Luxury Beauty Serum by Saint Jane Beauty which is perfect for mature skin.
CBD and Hyaluronic Acid
If you’re thinking that hyaluronic acid is the only other product you’ve been hearing more about than CBD oil these days, you’d be right! But let us assure you, there is a reason for that! Hyaluronic acid is also incredible for anti-inflammatory purposes just like CBD oil. When combined, these two wonder ingredients will work miracles for your skin, regulating oil and sebum production to leave it healthier, brighter and more youthful than ever before. You can finally say goodbye to those dark circles and unwanted puffy areas!
