 CBD has recently become a new sensation; no matter where you reside, you must have heard about people demanding CBD-infused products. It is being used in the medical world already to treat pain, anxiety and insomnia. However, its revolutionary benefits for human skin made it a popular ingredient for skincare products recently.

What is CBD?

CBD is hemp or cannabinoid, a chemical found in the marijuana plant. Unlike THC (another chemical found in marijuana plants), CBD is not psychoactive. So, CBD without THC does not make you feel high. Due to its revolutionary benefits for human health, it has been legalized with different restrictions in most countries. For example, in the U.S, more than 33 states have legalized CBD with even high THC levels for medical purposes.

Benefits of CBD for skin

2.      Getting Rid of Acne & Scarring

One of the common skin conditions which people have is acne.
