What is so special about CBD oil?
CBD is high in antioxidants, Omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamins A, C and E. This potent combination found in CBD oil are all essential components for anti-ageing skincare. These compounds help protect the skin from environmental pollutants and free radicals in addition to nourishing and improving the skin texture. These compounds also help keep free radicals from damaging elastin and collagen in the skin, which keep the skin tight and bouncy.
Vitamin A also helps skin look healthy and aids skin repair. A lack of these vitamins would result in skin dryness. Vitamin A also has a role to play in skin cell growth, by inhibiting oil production and promoting skin cell differentiation.
How does CBD work?
It works with your own body’s internal endocannabinoid system, meaning it works with your body rather than being just on it. People who have used it say they see a reduction in symptoms of psoriasis (extremely dry skin) such as eczema, dermatitis, acne and seborrhoea.
The oil itself when taken internally has been shown to improve anxiety and depression, aid sleep, relieve pain such as from arthritic conditions or fibromyalgia and others, aids skin irritations, helps autoimmune diseases and aids symptoms of epilepsy and autism. It has been approved in Canada for multiple sclerosis and cancer pain and according to the National Centre for Biotechnology Information, it aids inflammation reduction in diseases such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and other autoimmune diseases.
