Sooth Winter Skin with Industrial Hemp CBD Oil For Anti Aging
So you’re interested in the possibility of adding hemp oil to your skin care regimen? Well, then I believe you’re on the right track. Science shows us that Cannabis treatments work with our endocannabinoid system to help alleviate pain. We also have these same receptors on our skin. When our skin is dry or irritated we usually add some kind of cream to alleviate the irritation. If we invite the idea of using a hemp oil skin care product we will be working with the cannabinoid receptors that we already have, naturally to alleviate the skin irritations.
The Cannabis plant is high anti-inflammatory properties with the THC or without. Cannabidiol is high in Vitamin A and E. It also contains small amounts of important minerals such as potassium, iron, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, and calcium. When applied to the skin topically it has been shown to increase blood flow to the affected area thereby promoting healing.
Aging is an unfortunate fact of life. Everyone wants to look and feel younger and that’s why almost all products that claim to reduce or eliminate the signs of aging contain some kind of antioxidant. Antioxidants eliminate the free radicals that cause cellular damage including wrinkles and in some cases skin cancer. Some believe that if we can stop or slow down the damage then we can slow down the aging process. Hemp oil skin products contain these antioxidants Thereby making it a great addition to our skin care regimens.

If you’re buying it make sure you get the chemical analysis so that you know how much CBD you have so you can adjust your recipe correctly. You will want the highest level of CBD that you can find. Tinctures work great for some things, but not for what we are going to do with it. If you have found a product that you want to buy but they haven’t had any testing done, then find a different product. Soon you won’t have to worry about this. The more the government gets involved the more documentation these kinds of companies will have to provide. Right now there are companies trying to take advantage of the new CBD craze and developing products that don’t contain any cannabis or CBD at all. Hemp seed oil can be used in this case. Most of the time I do not recommend hemp seed oil because the seed does not contain any CBD at all. The seed, however, does contain essential fatty acids and is high in Omega 3, 6, and 9 making it great for your skin as well. So assuming you have your quality CBD oil we can continue.
