How Do CBD Products Differ From The Rest?

When you think of beauty products, CBD may not be the first thing you associate with them. Yet, it's something that is worth learning more about. CBD is finally getting the attention it deserves so we're here to answer the question, "How do CBD-infused beauty products differ from the rest?"
Here is more about CBD and what it does in beauty products to give you the full benefits of greater skin.

What is CBD?

According to Allure:
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of over 80 compounds called cannabinoids extracted from the cannabis sativa plant. The two most well-known of these are CBD, which does not get you stoned, and THC, which does.
While CBD can be found with and without THC, the health and beauty benefits are vast - no matter which.

How Does It Work In Beauty Products?

For one thing, cannabidiol or CBD has a wealth of components. These include anti-inflammatory properties from Vitamin A, Vitamin D, and Vitamin E. They even have essential fatty acids beneficial to our bodies.
  • Vitamin A is important in beauty products because it stimulates the cells. These cells are what produces tissue that keeps the skin healthier and more firm - making it looking younger.
  • Vitamin C is important in reducing the sign of aging and stimulating collagen production.
  • Vitamin E is well known in the beauty industry. It helps block free radicals from the body. Why is this important? Free radicals come from things like pollution, smog, UV rays, stress, illness, tobacco, certain foods, and more. By blocking these free radicals, the skin stays more youthful because free radical damage hurts the skin.
CBD also may help with dry skin, psoriasis, acne, and eczema. Take our AndHemp CBD Infused Lavender Lotion for instance. A powerful blend of Organic Extracts, Essential Oils, and Broad Spectrum CBD come together to create a delightful and calming experience for your skin.
Some studies have even shown that CBD has the ability to reduce the aging process. This works by working as a protective agent against damage from inflammation and free radicals as well as improving the production of collagen. And with its rich source of the fatty acids mentioned above, it helps the skin look youthful by retaining moisture. One study even showcases how CBD has the potential to reduce wrinkles, skin discoloration, and the appearance of fine lines.

Why is the Entourage Effect Important?

The entourage effect is using the whole plant. This way, you get all of its benefits. From cannabinoids and flavinoids to fatty acids and terpenes - these all work in tandem to give the most benefits.
For instance, the terpenes found in cannabis have their own medicinal benefits. This is called the “entourage effect” because of the way the different components can work together, play off each other, and enhance or downplay the end effects.
