There are literally thousands of beauty products on the market these days and most of them have pretty much the same ingredients. What most of them don’t have is CBD oil. Why would you want a beauty product that contains CBD oil? To answer that question we have to take a look at what CBD oil is. There’s been a lot of talk about the Endocannabinoid system that was discovered not too long ago. Scientists found that our body makes cannabinoids mainly for the purpose of homeostasis. We have receptors all over our bodies; skin, the brain, the nervous system all have cannabinoid receptors. CB1 receptors are mainly found in the brain and nervous system while CB2 receptors are tied to the immune system. This is an extremely important system for your health and well being. What does this have to do with beauty products? Your skin is an organ and yes it’s part of your immune system. And it’s loaded with CBD receptors! Phytocannabinoids, as you should know by now, are plant produced cannabinoids. The cannabinoids in CBD oil bind with the receptors in your skin and Wa La! You have homeostasis! Okay maybe it doesn’t happen quite that fast but there are evil little scavengers out there called free radicals that cause oxidative stress, which ages your skin and leads to disease. Much of the aging process in our bodies is the result of the cellular damage these unstable molecules cause. These free radicals then scavenge from healthy molecules, thus causing more damaged molecules. This is the process by which rust is made. Yes, your skin is rusty! ( It’s a close enough analogy for our purposes) You know what rust looks like on a car. It makes it look old. In somewhat the same concept, that’s what free radicals do to your skin. It looks old and tired and loses elasticity, the youthful glow disappears, and your skin looks dull. There are moisturizing properties, rejuvenating properties, youth-enhancing properties, in all modern beauty products, but anti-oxident properties, although present in small quantities, are not that powerful. Further, they do not naturally occur in your body. CBD oil, however, is extremely powerful because it literally binds with the CBD receptors in our skin striving to create balance and homeostasis. How does it create this desired homeostasis? CBD oil is known as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, anti anything bad for your skin. It boosts the Immune system and is believed to be a neural protector, among other benefits. You can put all the avocado and coconut oil on your skin you like, but that’s not something that naturally occurs in your body. Cannabidoil is. Natural oils, moisturizers, collagen and elastin boosters, peptides and many other ingredients are both useful and necessary to keep skin looking soft and healthy but they only go skin deep. CBD oil goes much deeper and connects with your inner being. That is someplace no ordinary beauty product can go.
