Calming effects minus the buzz
For years, people assumed that psychoactive ingredients such as THC were what makes cannabis a viable stress reliever. Sure, many people use inhaled herb for that reason, but now it is understood that hemp-derived CBD can calm the mind without delivering any sort of “high.”
University of Michigan anesthesiology professor, Daniel Clauw, MD explains:
“It (CBD) seems to have sort of a calming effect on the brain, although the precise mechanism by which it exerts these effects is not really well understood. I do recommend that patients try CBD first without THC.”
CBD anti-aging products
Los Angeles dermatologist, Dr. Tsippora Shainhouse, says that applying CBD to facial skin before smearing on sunscreen captures skin-aging free radicals that may elude sun blocker. Dr. Shainhouse credits the robust antioxidant properties of hemp CBD skin care products and their ability to “prevent and undo damage” caused by free radicals and sun exposure.
Naturopathic physician, Dr. Olivia Rose, agrees with Dr. Shainhouse’s estimation that hemp CBD beauty products, including CBD anti-wrinkle creams and topical hemp oil, can work wonders to restrict the visible signs of aging. These well-respected Southern California doctors concur that cannabidiol oils provide plentiful supplies of the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids along with gamma linoleic acid (GLA) to hydrate skin and lessen wrinkles and sun spots.
“These fatty acids are crucial in retaining skin moisture, which helps skin stay looking fresh and firm.”
