In the past decade, cannabidiol (CBD) has rocketed from the back-burners of scientific study into the mainstream kitchens, medicine cabinets, and maybe even the skincare routines of people around the world. Folks are using CBD to treat anxiety, headaches, appetite issues, and now, skin problems. CBD skincare is everywhere right now, and with its track record of benefits, we can understand why.
In this post we're taking a look at a line of products from KUL CBD that you can find on our store shelves. We'll be talking about how what CBD is, how CBD can benefit your skincare routine, KUL CBD's commitment to quality products, and details about the specific products you can find in our stores.
Let's jump right in.
What Is CBD?
Before we jump into specifics on the benefits of CBD skincare, let's get specific about what CBD is. According to PubChem, "Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid derived from Cannabis species, which is devoid of psychoactive activity, with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antineoplastic and chemopreventive activities." ...Huh?
Psychoactive — of a chemical substance, causing changes in nervous system functions that result in altered perceptions, cognition, consciousness, or behavior
Analgesic — referring to a drug, the quality of pain relief
Anti-inflammatory — about half of analgesic drugs are anti-inflammatory; they relieve pain by reducing inflammation
Antineoplastic — anti-cancer drugs; chemotherapy
Chemopreventative — chemopreventative agents actively prevent the development, growth, and spread of cancerous cells
So, CBD is part of the cannabis plant, it won't alter your consciousness, it offers anti-inflammatory pain relief, it can be used to treat already occurring cancerous cells, and it can be used in the prevention of cancerous cells before they even occur. I mean, what is this stuff, magic?
Well, kind of. The benefits of CBD are pretty extensive, and that certainly extends into the skincare arena.
CBD Skincare Benefits
Reduces Inflammation & Dryness, Improves Elasticity & Aging
One of the biggest reasons that CBD is effective in skincare is how it functions to control inflammation. This has been well-known as the reasoning CBD is helpful in treating pain — because it reduces inflammation in the body. In a skincare routine, CBD works similarly. CBD works with the endocannabinoid system when applied to skin to actively reduce inflammation. This results in reduced redness and an overall more even skin tone.
For conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, CBD can be helpful to reduce itchiness, as well. Itching caused by these conditions is usually due to dryness, and CBD applied topically — as in a face cream — has been shown to reduce dryness. Other studies have shown that CBD in topical treatments improves measures of skin hydration by both actively moisturizing and preventing water loss, and causes improvement in skin's elasticity. Oftentimes for conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, steroid creams are prescribed to treat the associated inflammation; CBD products can be a non-steroidal alternative to these medications.
Beyond your skin care worries of this current moment, CBD can be beneficial for your skincare routine in the long-term. Inflammation is the cause of all skin disease, including aging. Continuously using CBD products to reduce inflammation over time can lead to a better appearance of your skin as it ages.
