More recently, scientific evidence has backed up the benefits of cannabis in skin care, making it quite the buzzy ingredient—especially amongst natural beauty brands. CBD (or cannabidiol, a cannabinoid compound found in the cannabis plants) and hemp oil (part of the cannabis fam, but a different plant than marijuana) hold a number of topical benefits, from relieving and preventing acne breakouts to soothing psoriasis and eczema due to their anti-inflammatory nature.
The best part? It’s all legal, so even if marijuana is still illegal where you live, you can still celebrate 4/20 properly—and with some glowy skin, at that.
Check out the must-have cannabis beauty products to ring in 4/20, no toking up required.
