CBD skin care is hot right now—so hot that it’s surrounded by all sorts of marketing claims and rumors. As hemp experts, we won’t let half-truths hide the skin-calming, youth-boosting effects of CBD. Here, we’re separating myths from facts.

What Is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, one of many compounds found in cannabis. Unlike THC, the compound that produces the high from marijuana, CBD doesn’t cause any mind-bending effects. But CBD is anti-inflammatory, so it acts as a soother in skin and body care formulas.

CBD comes in a few forms. The one that Hempz uses is CBD isolate, which is purified CBD with nothing else. It’s clean, uncontaminated, and odorless.

Hempz Won’t Get You High

  1. CBD doesn’t get people high. THC does.
  2. CBD generally isn’t risky, even in large amounts. THC is.
  3. CBD is safe for people of all ages. THC isn’t.

What Are the Benefits of CBD in Skincare?

As an anti-inflammatory, CBD helps reduce redness and soothe the skin. It also helps counteract breakouts by helping to regulate bacteria and lipids, and it softens the look of signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles.

Smoothing CBD on your skin, rather than taking it as a supplement, allows you to get targeted results more quickly. In fact, 91 percent of women said that our CBD regimen energized their skin after three weeks.* We’re into soothed, smooth skin, so we’re all about CBD. Try it, and you will be, too.
