CBD Beauty What you need to know: Disclosure: I am NOT a CBD expert, let alone CBD in Skin Care. I am a licensed professional that has had extensive experience dealing with all different skin types and skin conditions such as acne, hyper pigmentation and other skin conditions.


I was going to name this post Hemp Oil for skin. However, hemp Oil is NOT the same as CBD “oil”. CBD is an oil but a chemical compound that is derived from the cannibinoid plant.

This post is a response to the comments from the video:



What is CBD and its Benefits?

CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol and it is one of the hundreds of compounds found in the cannabis plant. Most people are more familiar with its counterpart Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the ingredient known to have hallucinogenic effects.

CBD has less than 0.3% THC so CBD doesn’t have the hallucinogenic effects that is associated with the cannabis plant.

Before CBD started becoming more prevalent in sikn care, the medical and science community already were starting to take note of CBD’s anti inflammatory properties.

CBD was/is being used to help manage prolonged pain such as arthritis, Crohn’s disease and migraine headaches.


CBD can also help reduce inflammation, itchiness, puffiness and other sensitivities of the skin.

The CBD benefits for the skin is that it has antioxidants such as Vitamin C ,Vitamin E, essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 and Omega 6, with some added complex B Vitamins.



CBD is derived from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant and hemp seed oil is rich in vitamins, essential fatty acids and is an emollient for the skin. Hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp seed oil does NOT have the phytocannbinoids that CBD oil has.


Both CBD and TCH can affect our endocannibinoid system or ECS. The ECS helps regulate and balance different processes in the body such as:

-immune response




-communication between cells


In most articles I read, in summation, that CBD stimulates the endocannibinoid system, it can help reduce pain and inflammation.

3 Methods of Extraction of CBD: What You Need to Know:

Here are some factors to take into account when deciding whether to buy, or which product to purchase.

There are 3 methods of extraction:




Alcohol:This extraction method is commonly used because it is relatively cheap. Excess alcohol just burns off and it doesn’t really require any special equipment.

Oil: One of the oldest methods. Oil is mixed in with the CBD extract.

CO2: This method is the most costly and expensive of the three methods. This method entails using high tech and expensive equipment but allows for a more consistent product because the equipment regulates the temperature, pressure and extraction method is also consistent.

Evidently, the products price will reflect how the CBD is extracted because the extraction method can affect its potency.



Currently, CBD products are all the rage and hundreds of CBD beauty products and CBD supplements are flooding the market. It is near impossible to be familiar with even most of them, let alone all of them.

Because the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) does NOT regulate CBD in skin care, it is still considered the “Wild West”, not only in cosmetics but also in food and supplements.

So it is important to do your own research, start with the basics and go deeper from there , especially if you want to invest in CBD supplements or higher end CBD skin care.

***PRO TIP***: CBD products can be costly. Choose to skip the CBD cleansers and opt for the more concentrated forms such as gels, serums, and creams. It doesn’t pay off to use a cleanser that has CBD since it is on the skin for such a short period of time and then rinsed off.

Contraindications of CBD products and CBD Spa Treatments:

Most of the general population won’t have any reactions. However, individuals who suffer from allergies especially to plants, mold, dander and dust may have to be careful when ingesting or applying CBD for the first time.

Most people don’t have to worry about contraindications with medications when using topical CBD.

However, it is always recommended to refer to your doctor if you are taking oral medications and want to also take CBD oral supplements.

If you are interested in CBD facials/spa treatments, some of the facial benefits include:

-reducing acne



-skin that is stressed or encountering premature aging.

Please make sure you receive a thorough consultation to make sure it’s right for you.

This is a very general overview of CBD and skin care.

Remember Make is an ART and Skin care is a SCIENCE.
