In fact, many people are also wanting to buy Cannabis cream in South Africa to incorporate it into their beauty routine. We’ve received many testimonials that Cannabis cream is a great moisturizer and it leaves a person’s skin feeling soft and rejuvenated.
The skin in the largest bodily organ. It’s our first point of contact with the world around us, and it protects our internal organs from harm. While it may not seem like it, the skin is surprisingly active. Cells in the skin synthesize vitamin D, regulate our body temperature, and helps us detect changes in our environment. For these reasons, it’s important to keep skin healthy.
Beauty and wellness products containing cannabinoids like Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), are becoming increasingly popular. And because CBD and THC have antioxidant properties, cannabis skin care products can also be used to prevent and treat signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. CBD is also known to be an effective treatment for other various skin afflictions, like psoriasis. Cannabis contains powerful anti-inflammatories and antioxidants which can protect the skin against damage caused by environmental exposure.
It’s a common misconception that cannabinoid receptors are concentrated only in the central nervous system and the brain. They’re actually found all throughout the body. This includes the skin, the gut, and reproductive organs. The fact that these cell sites are found in a wide range of bodily regions indicates how important endocannabinoids are to our basic health and physiological functioning. This includes the basic health and functioning of the skin.
When you apply activated Cannabis directly to the skin in the form of a topical, you’re directly engaging these cannabinoid receptors. If you sprain an ankle and your ankle swells up, applying a cannabis topical can both ease the pain in that area as well as drastically reduce inflammation.
A study published by the National Academy of Sciences in 1998 found that the cannabinoid CBD is a more powerful antioxidant than Vitamins E and C. THC was also found to have antioxidant properties.
Antioxidants protect the skin by neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that harm the cells in your body and cause all sorts of damage, from aging to cancer. The powerful antioxidants in Cannabis may fight aging by protecting the cells in your body against free radical damage.
Studies have shown that CBD can potentially be helpful for fighting acne, too, and may even give your skin a more youthful appearance, thanks to its inflammation-fighting prowess. It can potentially help relieve pain. Many South Africans also use Cannabis products to help treat more serious skin problems, such as cancer.
For serious skin issues or injuries, you’ll need to consult a doctor before trying any new treatments. It’s also best to ask your local medical Cannabis dispensary for product recommendations.
Remember in addition to incorporating cannabis skin care products into your daily routine, make sure you take other measures to protect your skin. It’s your largest organ after all! Wear daily sunscreen (yes, even on cloudy days!), maintain a healthy, balanced diet and stay hydrated!
