With the explosive rise in popularity of CBD in recent times after some research had gone into it to understand its capabilities, we have seen the manufacture of creams and other skincare products containing CBD.
These manufacturers who employ CBD in the making of their creams will promise its effectiveness for various uses, such as eczema, acne, and inflammation. Research does suggest its potential use for those conditions, but scientists would tell you further studies need to be carried out before anything is fully confirmed.
This article will discuss the benefits of CBD cream for face, certain conditions that can be improved by using CBD cream for face, and things to look out for when choosing a product to buy.
Is it safe to use CBD cream for face?
It is CBD creams are tested vigorously before they are distributed for sale. It is wisest to choose a product that has done such testing, and released the lab results in a certificate of analysis (COA) which the consumers can access.
We will discuss more on that shortly, but for now it is necessary to note that CBD is no longer a controlled substance I.e. it is not being regulated anymore, and so it is legal for sale and consumption, provided it contains less than 0.3% THC.
This legal status it has achieved makes it possible for anyone to acquire some and use in a cream in a less than ideal manner, which could lead to complications down the line. This is why this article will also point out what to look for to find safer products for use.
THC is the psychoactive ingredient present in Cannabis plant. It is the part of the herb that gives a high feeling. Some research have revealed an increased potency when CBD is used in combination with THC, but for now this is only employed in medication which follows strict regulations, as THC is still controlled.
People who used CBD cream for face and skin reported increased relaxation and restful sleep. This is likely due to the presence of CBD as it is also being studied for its effect on insomnia.
Find the right CBD cream for your face
When looking for a CBD cream for face, there are a few things to look out for.
Remember to read the label fully, to know what ingredients are present in the product, as well as the specific dosage listed. If you are a first time user, it is best to start with a lower dose, to determine how safe it is for you.
You are free from then on to try out high doses. A cream with high potency typically has about 8mg of CBD, with lower doses around 3mg.
Remember to consider your face and what it needs. CBD cream for face is a good idea, but CBD is extracted in different ways, implemented in different ways in the cream, and interacts in different ways with different people.
Some manufacturers carry out tests and come to conclusions which they indicate on the cream. This is usually expressed in the ‘directions for use’ which includes instructions for safe use of the product.
