" Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.

" Hemp oil bath products have grown in popularity in recent years, with the natural mind and body balancing effects of cannabidiol (CBD) making its way into CBD soaking salts, CBD bombs, and CBD therapeutic bath soaks.
While human skin in general has low permeability and blocks most substances from being absorbed, soaking in CBD-infused soaks allow the nourishing cannabinoid to overcome this barrier and penetrate the skin’s surface where it can soothe, fortify, and moisturize."
" Hemp contains the optimal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which serve as great emollients to soften and smooth the hair and skin.
Key elements in a natural skin care diet, these fatty acids are the building blocks of healthy cell membranes and produce the skin’s natural oil barrier that is critical in keeping the skin hydrated and supple.The collection of vitamins found in CBD hemp oil-infused salts and bombs leave the skin looking radiantly healthy and feeling silky soft.
Responsible for skin growth and metabolism, vitamins A and D play an essential role in skin repair. Vitamins C and E serve as antioxidants by rejuvenating the skin’s protective outer layer, and protecting it against damage from the sun and free radicals."
" Topicals are non-psychoactive, so they are often popular among patients who want the therapeutic effects of cannabis but not the “high”. This non-psychoactivity is because the cannabinoids in these topicals bind to CB2 receptors near the skin, activating the endocannabinoid system, and are never absorbed into the bloodstream. Because human skin has a low absorption rate for these cannabinoids, coverage and dose need to be large enough to overcome this barrier (Challapalli & Stinchcomb, 2002). This is why most cannabis topicals suggest applying “liberally” to the affected location.
HOWEVER, CBN and CBD are more permeable to the skin than THC and are more likely to stimulate the CB2 cannabinoid receptors, making them the popular choice for the manufacture of cannabis topicals (Jorge et al., 2011). Since CBD contents are much higher in commercial hemp than in marijuana, hemp is a more viable and less toxic source of CBD for use in topicals. "

"Cannabis can help aging skin in a couple of ways. While the herb is not a sunscreen, it is a potent antioxidant. These antioxidants are key to preventing environmental damage in the skin.
Antioxidants work by neutralizing harmful compounds known as free radicals. Free radicals are volatile molecules that steal atomic resources from your cells and DNA, causing damage.UV rays from the sun are free radicals. As are chemical pollutants and harsh compounds in smoke. In our modern environment, it is very difficult to avoid exposure to pollutants. Yet, the more exposure we have to free radical compounds, the more stress we place on our skin.
As antioxidants, compounds like THC and CBD potentially protect skin cells and their DNA from damage. In fact, studies have shown that CBD is a more powerful antioxidant than vitamins E and C."

“Transdermal CBD gel significantly reduced joint swelling,” the researchers wrote, noting other indicators of pain, including how the rats positioned the affected joints, also seemed improved.
“Exploratory behaviour was not altered by CBD indicating limited effect on higher brain function,” they added, further evidence that CBD has few side effects.
“These data indicate that topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviours and inflammation without evident side-effects,” the scientists concluded.
Although perhaps less applicable to everyday applications, other animal studies suggest CBD could reduce many different kinds of inflammation. It’s also worth noting that there are already at least two patents on specific formulations of topical CBD."
