Buy CBD for Skincare? Why is Cannabidiol So Popular?

Well, the popularity of CBD skin care products is certainly increasing. Cannabidiol in the beauty and skincare market is becoming increasingly significant, especially over this last year. 

We’re going to dig into why that’s happening and what CBD could do for you. 

First, some figures on this remarkable growth.

According to the Brightfield Group, “In 2020, CBD topical use was reported by over a third of CBD users for both skincare/beauty and therapeutic topicals. The growth of CBD topical products is largely due to their ease of use, availability, and the growing trend of self-care at home.” [1]  

During the third quarter of last year, “topicals for beauty & skincare surpassed therapeutic topical use for the first time.” This, they report, was a result of the pandemic (with more people staying at home more, right?) and the growing selfcare movement. 

So why is CBD for your skin so popular?

It’s easy to use.

No prescription is needed.

It’s applied, not swallowed. You simply rub it on like any lotion, ointment, or face cream. We’re all familiar with using creams like that. This convenience makes CBD skin products a comfortable choice, even for the most wary of new consumers.

It’s not psychoactive. Even if the CBD you use contains a tiny amount of THC, using it in topical form won't make you high.

Natural ingredients. Helping you move away from any artificial inputs used by some cosmetic manufacturers. 

It’s safe. A report called Transdermal cannabidiol reduces inflammation and pain-related behaviors says the evidence indicates that “topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviours and inflammation without evident side-effects.” [2] 

How does CBD work to help your skin and skin conditions?

The cannabis plant contains many different cannabinoids, one of which is cannabidiol (CBD). When ingested or applied topically, CBD binds to special cannabinoid receptors throughout your body, and this triggers a series of reactions. That is how CBD does its work throughout the human body, whether taken for “pain, inflammation, epilepsy, sleep disorders, the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, anorexia, schizophrenia and other conditions” - to quote from a report published by the NIH, titled Cannabinoid Delivery Systems for Pain and Inflammation Treatment. [3] (My word, what a long list!)

But in terms of CBD and your skin, researchers have recently identified a substantial network of CB1 and CB2 receptors in the epidermis, the outer layer of skin. CBD communicates using these and other pathways which helps explain how a dose of CBD can influence so many different conditions spread throughout the body. 

Of course, when the CBD is applied topically, for example by rubbing your arthritis sore spot with a CBD-infused cream, the effect is focused on that area. The CBD interacts with your CB2 receptors when it’s producing the desired anti-inflammatory effect. By decreasing the amount of inflammation, CBD helps to ease the pain levels. 

While the science is not fully known and there are some dissenters who are not convinced that CBD can be a blessing for those with skin conditions, the fact is… more and more people are using topical CBD-containing preparations in their skincare. 

And also, the research into the science of cannabinoids and endocannabinoids is continuing at a vigorous pace. More than 1000 new articles are being published every year now. [3]

Is CBD effective in treating skin conditions? What does the research show?

* ACNE. Research in 2014 showed that cannabidiol exerts a “sebostatic” influence on the production of sebum. [4]  Sebostatic means it regulates the production of sebum, which is the oily (some say waxy) substance which is produced by our sebaceous glands. 

Acne is usually the result of overactive sebaceous glands. Sebum is a good thing (it lubricates your skin and hair), but too much of it isn't. So we can easily see that a product that tames those overactive glands is going to be worth trying if you or someone you love are having trouble with acne. 

* ANTI-OXIDANT. says, “In the same way that paint protects metal from rusting or lemon juice protects apples from turning brown, cannabinoids protect our cells from oxidation.” [5] How? “CBD, like other antioxidants, interrupts free radical chain reactions, capturing free radicals or transforming them into less active forms.” [6] Just what we want! 

* INFLAMMATION. To quote from that same NIH report, which is called Antioxidative and Anti-Inflammatory Properties of Cannabidiol, “CBD is non-psychoactive but exerts a number of beneficial pharmacological effects, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.”  

And of course, because it’s anti-inflammatory, it creates a soothing effect. 

Why is CBD so good for your skin?

CBD is an anti-inflammatory molecule with antioxidant and anti-aging properties. Because of this, CBD is a perfect ingredient in any skin care product. 

But we’ve gone further than that. We use hemp seed oil as the carrier for all our skincare products. 

Why is this noteworthy? Because hemp seed oil contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which provide moisture and protection from sun damage, making our skincare range even more effective.
