05 May Cannabis Oil: 5 Reasons Your Skin Needs It
The herb formally known as weed is getting a makeover ya’ll and it’s taking the wellness world by storm. It no longer has the stigma of a street drug, but recognized as a medicinal plant called Cannabis Oil or CBD. In the healing arts practices it is specifically addressing issues of depression, anxiety, stress, chronic inflammation and pain. Here is how it works…
Our bodies have a biological Endocannabinoid System, which plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience.
#1 Cannabis is a Super Antioxidant
Cannabis oil is nutrient-dense. It is more powerful than vitamin A,C,E. Antioxidants are compounds that have the ability to repair the molecules damaged by free radicals and to neutralize the harmful effects of oxidative stress. Cannabis oil has a high concentration of antioxidants.
#2 Cannabis Increases Essential Fatty Acids
Our body makes cannabinoids from consuming foods high in omega 3 fatty acids, such as eggs, meat, fish and nuts. The cannabinoids made from the omega 3 fatty acids are converted into super powerful anti-inflammatory molecules when we apply marijuana derived cannabis oil to our body. This super powerful anti inflammatory influences blood flow, taking down pain and inflammation in the body including the skin.
#3 Cannabis Helps Your Body Grow New Skin Cells
The Endocannabinoid System within our bodies control skin cell growth and skin cell death. Applying marijuana derived cannabis oil manipulates the endocannabinoid system to slow down or speed up that process depending on what your body needs.
#4 Cannabis Inhibits Acne
The skin’s lipid production plays an important role in acne and eczema. Cannabis oil has the ability to decrease the over production of sebum (skin oil). It can also decrease the redness (inflammation) surrounding the breakout.
#5 Cannabis Protects The Skin
The skin that is effected by uv rays need cannabis oil to protect it. Cannabis oil absorbs harmful uv rays.
