CBD for Skincare
The sun is out! It is patio season so you grab a few drinks with friends and the next day, your skin faces the consequences. You look in the mirror and analyze the return of your dry skin, redness, excess oil – the works.
What could you have done to avoid these skin issues? Maybe you avoid going out at all, no alcoholic drinks ever and god forbid, do not ever let the sun touch your precious skin.
Well, that doesn’t seem fun at all, does it? What if I told you I had a versatile solution for you? I do, CBD skincare products!
Using CBD for Skincare
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the main cannabinoids in cannabis plants. It provides a dynamic avenue of healing physical ailments such as skin flaws/irritation, inflammation like arthritis, aids during sleep, and can induce/suppress appetite etc.
CBD is best received when bonded with other terpenes – essential oils- naturally occurring in cannabis, or when taken in equal parts to THC, a 1:1 ratio.
A couple of examples of commonly found essential oils with great benefits are linalool (found in lavender) as well as arnica. Specifically, linalool provides a relaxing experience while arnica amplifies anti-inflammatory effects, pain relief as well as extra support for your immune system.
My experience with using CBD for Skincare
As someone who suffers from a handful of skin conditions; dyshidrotic eczema, seborrheic dermatitis and dermatographia- a skin condition only about 2% of people in the world have- it is so important the products I utilize are naturally sourced.
Miss Envy Botanicals is hands down my favourite company to refer to when it comes to CBD infused skincare products. Not only because they are a local company but because there is no one I trust more to ensure the quality of my skincare products every time.
My go-to specifically is the Extra Strength Buddha Bar, 100% organic, 500mg of THC and CBD infused in a 50mL roll on topical, bonded with menthol for muscle cooling properties, arnica for deep muscle relief and finally, lemongrass to soothe.
THC/CBD work best when taken together as a 1:1.
It’s important to note that when using topicals infused with THC, the cerebral psychoactive effect you can expect to experience will be very low. Most of the benefits you reap will be derived from CBD.
More than Just CBD Topicals
Alternatively, you can also ingest CBD to give yourself medicinal versatility. In fact, I recommend taking CBD solvents/capsules hand in hand with a regular CBD skincare routine!
Unlike THC, CBD is a product that requires long term consistency to reap its full benefits, but I promise it is a lifestyle change for the better.
Miss Envy has all the best products for your constantly changing schedule, for the unique individual you are, so live your life, enjoy the sun, drink all the mimosas you want because Miss Envy and CBD has your back!
