Everything You Need to Know About CBD oil and the Best ones to buy

There’s no question that CBD is the an active beauty product at the moment. What exactly is CBD? It’s been quite popular for a few years now but what does it do? And does it actually work? Many have been using it, so it’s totally worth looking into so we know what we are dealing with.

What is it?

So first things first, CBD is not marijuana. It is known as Cannabidiol a chemical compound from the Cannabid sativa plant, also known as marijuana. It’s a natural product which is used in products such as oils and edibles to give you a feeling of relaxation. CBD can also help a number of mental and physical health issues, from muscle inflammation to anxiety, but the correlation with cannabis has people confused as to if this product is safe and legal.

CBD is completely legal in the UK as long as it does not contain any detectable levels of other substances. And although it’s often mixed up with other oils such as hemp or coconut. But the confusion starts when THC comes into it as this part of cannabis gets you high. So in order for a product to qualify as legal in the UK, it needs to have at least 0.2% of THC in it.

Why is it good for your skin?

The oil can fight breakouts and inflammations. It also treats various skin conditions such as eczema and acne and dry skin and has a balance of nutrients and substances that will moisturise your skin. Here are some of our favourite CBD oils to try:
