Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD has been praised as the new ‘go to’ supplement and the use of CBD is on the rise, it's a long way from what was once considered a new-age ingredient, sold under the counter and with huge controversy and stigma around it. The misunderstanding surrounding this natural compound is starting to fade and the stigma is finally being overlooked and replaced with curiosity and keen interest. In recent months, we have witnessed 'the hottest new ingredient' being embraced within the beauty industry.
Interest in CBD is growing continuously and with no sign of slowing down any time soon this popularity has driven a trend for CBD as an ingredient for beauty and skincare products.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is a natural liquid extract taken from the second most prominent compound found within cannabis plants called Cannabidiol - more commonly abbreviated and known as CBD.
It is one of over 113 cannabinoids identified and discovered so far in hemp plants. The cannabis plant contains many different cannabinoids (aspects of the plant) with the most famous and main one being Tetrahydrocannabinol commonly known as THC, which is the plant ingredient responsible for the high / stoned effect, which is so often associated with the use on cannabis!
CBD does NOT contain the same psychoactive ingredient as THC! It is non-intoxicating and it doesn’t make users high.
CBD FOR YOUR SKIN
Cannabidiol (CBD) is gaining a lot of attention and exposure recently but it is most commonly taken in oil or capsule form. But we have seen a huge rise in CBD being used in cosmetics, with many people now using CBD on their skin having replaced their usual daily skincare routine to one that includes the added star ingredient, CBD. It is taking the beauty world by storm and there is now a growing list of loyal fans which include celebrities and professional athletes. Many of whom are using CBD on a regular daily basis.
We have seen celebs like actresses, Jennifer Aniston and Whoopi Goldberg discussing and praising the use of CBD products, in fact, Whoopi Goldberg believes in it so much that she created and sells her own products.
Retired professional boxer, Mike Tyson, has invested tens of millions of dollars designing and building the most state-of-the-art facilities in order to process CBD.
So, with this in mind, its no surprise that the popularity of CBD Oil is rising daily.
People are discovering that CBD holds potential in the beauty industry. Both luxury brands and high street stores have been launching skincare products containing extracts of the cannabis sativa plant, and are busy proclaiming its potential plus much more! High Street shops, 'Harvey Nicks' and 'The Body Shop' have their own CBD skincare range, and as expected they cost a small fortune.

We've recently read articles which write about skincare products and how we should be leaving out the common ingredients most often found in skincare products, such as; alcohol, strong chemicals, and perfume because they dry out your skin and will only make you use more of the product. Our skin is regularly exposed to a lot of dirt, environmental pollutants and chemicals daily, so, the last thing we want is to be adding more of those chemicals on our skin!
Replace those ingredients with alternatives, try using products that include more natural ingredients, such as; essential oils, coconut oil, organic plant oils, healthy acids and Cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD is an incredible wonder of nature, a naturally occurring compound found within the cannabis plant. When used regularly it helps to maintain skin, leaving it bright and glowing.
