As we know, nature is wonderful and always provides us with many useful resources for our body and mind.
The constant research on cannabinoids are revealing ALL the beneficial effects of this element. Not only beneficial for the mind, but for the body as well.
In fact our body has an “Endocannabinoid” system that perfectly responds to the stimulus of CBD!
As we all know, many different products based on Hemp are being released on the market, including cosmetics.
Then why not create them at home, in a time-and-cost-effective way?
But before moving on to the good tricks, let’s discover more about the amazing effects of cannabinoids on our skin…
How do cannabinoids work on our skin?
The endocannabinoid system is nothing but a wide net of receptors.
The receptors directly act on memory, pain and any other physiological areas. Their purpose is to maintain the homeostatic balance of the body.
We have receptors on our skin too , in fact Cannabinoids are also gaining ground in Dermatology.
The products aimed for the face have different effects: antioxidant (in case of acne), anti-aging or illuminating.
Cannabinoids strengthen the skin defensive barriers and help against dried skin.
Trichomes are the actual vectors of all the benefits mentioned above: they’re tiny crystals that wrap the flower, carrying a large quantity of terpenes and cannabinoids.
For the skin, the most prominent property is the anti-inflammatory quality.
Most of skin problems derive from inflammatory conditions. Cannabinoids can then efficiently prevent this skin response. An example? Acne, for many people an undesired condition of the skin, which consists of an excessive production of sebum.
Cannabinoids can reduce the production of sebum, thanks to their antiproliferative mechanism.
But it’s also proven to be very effective against psoriasis, a debilitating disease. Cannabinoids can obstruct the psoriatic plaques, greatly improving the patients’ condition that can otherwise lead also to psychological issues, if not treated.
CBD can be anti-aging, since it’s an antioxidant.
The direct application to the skin is the most effective kind, but it can be ingested in drops or in the form of food supplement.
Therefore hemp oil is not only useful to cook, but also for our beauty!
