Meet the wellness industry’s newest obsession: CBD Oil. If you pay attention to skincare, spa, and beauty news, (or if you just read about our fabulous Spa Week treatments), you know about the latest ingredient sweeping the industry. But even if you’ve kept up with the trend, you may have some questions about CBD oil and how you can use it. We’re here to help. What is it? CBD, or cannabidiol, is an oil that comes from resin glands on cannabis buds and flowers. It can also be extracted from hemp or THC. What are the benefits? CBD is a strong pain reliever and a great anti-inflammatory ingredient, which is why it’s so popular in skincare products, especially for sensitive skin or redness-prone skin. It can also reduce anxiety, depression and control acne. Is it safe? Yes. CBD won’t get you high – no matter how you use it. THC is the part of cannabis that has psychological effects – so CBD by itself can’t get you stoned. Is it legal? It depends where you live. In the 29 states where medicinal or recreational marijuana is legal, CBD is legal. In 17 other states, there are specific laws about what CBD products can be used by who and for what. Check your local laws before making any purchases (most companies making CBD products will only ship to areas where their products is legal.) What products should I try? We’re so glad you asked!
