In my previous post, we looked at the difference between Hemp, CBD and Cannabis.

The points to remember are:
- Hemp oil is made from the seeds of the Cannabis plant
- CBD is made from the Cannabis plant and flowers and its properties are more powerful than Hemp oil
- Neither Hemp nor CBD contains THC and thus will not get you high

In this post, we will look at how Hemp and CBD benefits your skin.

So, let's jump right in.

How does Hemp & CBD benefit your skin?

Acne is an inflammatory condition, and, as CBD has been found to reduce inflammation, it can visibly help to reduce breakouts and acne-related redness. 

Similarly, Hemp products moisturise without clogging pores.

Decreases excess sebum production

If you experience oily skin, Hemp & CBD can help as it has the potential to decrease excess sebum (oil) production, probably due to its balancing effect on the quality of the skin's oil.

OK, so many products claim to be anti-oxidising. Because CBD comes from a plant, its anti-oxidant effects are undeniable and potent. When combined with its anti-inflammatory effects, CBD can diminish issues like wrinkles, skin dullness and redness.

Soothing properties

CBD oil has been found to have significant skin-soothing effects. Due to its skin-calming and skin-normalising effects, it can help to minimise problems related to skin sensitivity, including reducing redness and reactivity.

Hemp seeds contain essential fatty acids that may help alleviate dry skin, eczema, and other skin irritations.

How are Hemp & CBD used in skincare?

Hemp seed oil works to reduce irritation when applied topically to the skin because of nutrients like linoleic acid that enable skin cell generation and repair.

As we touched on earlier, CBD oil is made from the plants and flowers of the Cannabis plant and thus its effects are similar to those of Hemp oil they tend to be stronger than Hemp oil.
