It reduces stress. It eases pain. It promotes metabolism and can even get rid of nightmares. The list of benefits attributed to marijuana is long and just keeps getting longer. Now you can add yet another benefit to the list: marijuana can make you more beautiful. That’s right, you read that correctly. Studies are showing that cannabis beauty products have a wide range of positive effects on your appearance.
How Marijuana Benefits Your Beauty
A Fountain of Youth
It turns out that THC is filled with powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants have the power to block those harmful chemicals and products which cause your skin to age. The overall effect gives your skin and general appearance a much younger look.
Further, marijuana usage is linked to reduced stress and anxiety, both of which are known culprits in the aging process. By lowering stress levels, you are also lowering the harmful chemicals coursing through your system causing damage in the first place.
You have probably already heard that cannabis can reduce pain. Many of the original users of medical marijuana were prescribed cannabis for dealing with severe chronic pain. This is because cannabis contains THC and CBD, which are extremely effective at reducing inflammation in the body. Inflammation is at the root of most pain.
Inflammation is also at the root of most skin problems as well. In the same way that a sore ankle will improve after rubbing some topical cannabis ointment on it, using a topical CBD skin cream can soothe the inflammation caused by a variety of skin problems, such as psoriasis or rashes.
Let’s Clear Things Up
No one enjoys waking up to pimples. However, no worries! Cannabis skin care products can help here as well. Thanks to the powerful combination of more than 60 cannabinoids in CBD skin care products, your blemishes may soon be history. In addition to being anti-inflammatory, these cannabinoids are also antibacterial and hypoallergenic. They are filled with antioxidants and all the right minerals to make your skin look fantastic.
No matter what we do to treat our skin right, there is no denying that life simply keeps on throwing new things at it. Our bodies are designed to put up a fight and skin has a natural barrier which can help protect it from harsh products that come our way. However, over time, that natural barrier starts to wear down. Many cannabis skin care products are able to help strengthen that barrier. Especially when paired with the moisturizing abilities of many oils used in cannabis beauty products, CBD skin care routines can keep your natural defenses going strong.
You can have the most stylish outfit and still, your looks fall short when your hair is limp and unhealthy. Luckily, cannabis beauty products have a solution for this as well. Studies have shown that cannabis can have positive effects on your hair and scalp. Those same anti-inflammatory properties that just keep coming up are responsible for stimulating hair growth and strengthening your hair follicles. These compounds add to your hair, as well, making it healthier and giving it a luxurious shine. It can also moisturize your scalp so that you never have to worry about annoying flakes.
