Is CBD oil the beauty secret you’ve been missing?

The weed industry is transitioning itself into the beauty industry. Cannabidiol oil or CBD oil for short is credited for having a slew of beauty benefits. The oil is made up of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and researchers have discovered the oil can be therapeutic. The oil has anti-inflammatory components and is being used in lotions and creams but some are skeptical because the testing on CBD oil is limited. Would you try CBD oil?

Brands are recognizing how beneficial CBD oil is and are incorporating it into lotions and other elixirs. Rachel Chen, a YouTube content strategist was quoted in Refinery29 saying she used a CBD oil based product and felt instant results.

The first time I used the Lord Jones lotion was right before I got my period. Initially, it felt just nice, like any other cooling lotion. After rubbing the lotion on the cramping hot spots, though, I felt an instant relief — far beyond the initial chilling sensation.

But the downside is that marijuana isn't federally approved, so a doctor can't prescribe a product that contains CBD oil. The testing done on these products has been limited and leaves some wondering if they actually deliver the results they claim too. Refinery29 quoted beauty writer Mi-Anne Chan who said she isn't sure if she should swap out her prescribed moisturizer for a CBD oil infused product.   

"I've tried a smattering of CBD skin-care products and, overall, I've had pretty much the same experience: These are nice creams, but are they really doing anything? But this is the first time I'd used a CBD cream specifically with my keratosis pilaris (KP) and eczema in mind. After noticing an eczema flare-up on my neck this week, I immediately put some of the Herb Essntls body lotion on it, which managed to quell my scratching for most of the day (well, until I got stressed again and scratched the spot out of habit).
Judging solely as a lotion: It's nice! The lightweight formula allows it to sink in immediately, so it doesn't ruin my clothes. Sure, it's very soothing for my irritated skin, but could it replace my prescription-grade hydrocortisone? Probably not. Does it look really pretty on my vanity and stall my scratching at the office? Definitely."
