The Beauty & Wellness of CBD

Jul, 2022 by Cannabiz Wholesaler

For many of us, we were unaware of what cannabidiol was let alone what it could do until the Charlotte Figi story in the mid2000 with the CNN “Weed” Special with Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

From there the medicinal benefits of CBD were being explored and not only was Charlotte Figi a household name but also the cultivars, the Stanley Brothers. The concept of low THC cannabis and hemp gained curiosity as well. We were contemplating hemp not just for industrial possibilities but for the health potential as well.

Since that time, research that was nearly buried was resurfacing. The research analyzing CBD for anxiety, pain, inflammation, psychosis and cancer has gained more and more interest despite the lack of standardization of many of these research trials and the more anecdotal focus. Regardless, consumers are seeing the incredible benefits of this amazing compound. CBD is projected to be a $19.5 billion dollar business by 2025 and the beauty and wellness industry is paying attention.

The global CBD skin care market is expected to reach $ 1.7 billion by 2025, according to Million Insights. Increasing awareness related to the healing properties of CBD infused beauty products is majorly driving the market growth.

CBD is an excellent anti-inflammatory and helps skin care in a few important ways.
1. Reduces potential triggers that cause eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis
2. Soothes skin and reduce the appearance of irritation
3. Decreases the production of sebum which causes acne
4. Hydrates dry skin

As the medicinal research behind cannabis increases, the CBD beauty industry is undoubtedly growing and is the next big step for this diverse and effective cannabinoid. Keep in mind if deciding to enter into the beauty realm of CBD, the chosen medium that the CBD is infused within can enhance the potential effect tremendously. Proper formulation and concentration can make the difference between a placebo effect and a medicinally beneficial product.
