CBD, cannabis, hemp, these terms are no longer taboo. From the food and textile industry to the beauty industry, companies now highlight the benefits of CBD.
CBD beauty has become a multi-billion dollar industry and has gained the following of celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian-West.
The stars have tapped into cannabis-derived and cannabis-infused products. Celebrities have raved about its benefits including anxiety relief, pain relief, and overall improved skin.
But what is CBD? Cannabidiol is derived from marijuana plant. However, it is non-psychoactive and will not get you high. What gets a person high is THC or tetrahydrocannabinol.
Is CBD legal? Pure CBD is legal. Beauty products that contain CBD are sold legally. Some products do not even contain real cannabis and when it does, it is legal to use. You will not be fined or imprisoned for using the widely-popular CBD.
Further, marijuana itself is being legalized throughout more states in the U.S. and abroad.
How about hemp oil? Hemp seed oil also does not contain the psychoactive THC. It also contains very little CBD. Rather, it is cold-pressed from hemp seeds.
The difference between the two is that hemp oil is rich in omega fatty acids, Vitamin E, and linolenic acids. Hemp also boasts calming properties.
If you have problems with dry and flaking skin, then this formulation is the best for you. We love how it makes our skin feel supple and nourished.
This vegan moisturizer is infused with the nourishing goodness of acai berry, goji berry, green tea, and Asian pear. But the highlight of all the ingredients is the Pure Hemp Seed Oil rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
What this natural moisturizer does is it soothes atopic dermatitis so even those with eczema, dry hands and feet, flaking, and winter drying problems can reap the benefits of this moisturizer.
The scent of HEMPZ is not overpowering at all. It contains no harsh chemicals and residue. The berries will also help revitalize the skin and regenerate skin cells.
Cannabis Heel Treatment
To soothe tired, aching, and cracking heels, you need our favorite moisturizer as well. For those who want to use a product that is meant solely for the soles, then try Mazz Hanna Smoky Quartz Infusion CBD Foot Spray.
We like this foot spray because it dries fast so you will not have troubles with your feet slipping out of your pumps or high-heels. Also, it is infused with smoky quartz crystals that offer healing properties and counter negative energies.
Cannabis in perfume? You bet! But fret not because it will not leave you reeking with the smell of weed.
High-end fragrance perfume FloraBotanica by Balenciaga is infused with hemp and made to smell lovely with Turkish rose essences, carnation, and a hint of wild mint. The scent is very youthful, vibrant, and flirtatious.
Best Hemp Mascara
CBD Beauty is getting more interesting by the day. Now, even cosmetics have been invaded by CBD.
For Cleopatra-worthy eyes, try Milk Makeup's Kush mascara. We love the natural elongated and volume-added look to it. The look is totally wearable by day or night. It also helps improve the health of your eyelashes.
It is non-smear and yet is easy to remove with a makeup remover at the end of the day.
Best Lip Balm with Hemp
Ooh and now we can make our lips soft and supple with MILK MAKEUP KUSH Lip Balm. The conditioning lip balm stick is green like marijuana but when you swipe it on, it is clear and color-less.
This conditioning formulation will soothe and soften the lips and improve its texture, too.
