Using Cannabis Topicals To Relieve Dry Skin

Cannabis Topicals for Dry Sking

Cannabis has many uses, both recreational and medicinal. Those who utilize cannabis for medical reasons, do so to treat a variety of conditions including:

  • Anxiety
  • Epilepsy
  • Depression
  • Chronic pain

To experience the relief of cannabis and other benefits it offers, many choose to either ingest or smoke it. However, did you know that cannabis topicals are quickly becoming a popular option? Due to the fast and more effective absorption, many cannabis users are turning to topicals. As it turns out, cannabis topicals are great skincare products in addition to being effective medicinal vehicles.

At Acres Cannabis, we offer a wide range of cannabis topicals for you to add to your skincare routine. If you are wondering whether you should make the switch, here are a few reasons these products are worth a try.

Contains Essential Vitamins

Just like your other organs, your skin needs vitamins and minerals to be healthy. If you have dry, itchy, red, or flaking skin, you may be lacking a few essential vitamins. Cannabis topicals containing CBD often have a wealth of helpful compounds:

  • Zinc
  • Calcium
  • Potassium
  • Vitamins E, D, B3, B1 and A
  • Magnesium
  • Iron
  • Phosphorous

These give your skin the tools it needs to repair and replenish.

Fights Inflammation

As one of the leading causes of skin irritation is inflammation, the amazing anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis not only alleviate cosmetic issues like redness but also address swelling and pain. The key component of cannabis is the CBD’s omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, which studies show can drastically reduce inflammation. For this reason, it is an excellent acne treatment and can address issues like eczema. When applied to an area that is sore, itchy, or hot, the sensation of relief is almost immediate.

Regulates Oil Production

Your skin naturally produces oil, which is how it stays hydrated. In many cases, inflammation – which is an immune response – has affected your skin’s ability to make as much oil as it needs. This may be a result of allergies, weather, or harsh chemicals from other skincare products. The cannabinoids in the topical interact with your skin’s endocannabinoid system, which is what provides the soothing sensation. This eases the immune response, which allows your largest organ to produce more oil.

Applies Easily

The best part about topicals? You apply them right to the problem area as needed with no worrying about concentration or dosage. Just rub your chosen product in and enjoy increased skin health.

Offers a Natural Option

Many lotions and creams that claim to be hydrating contain chemicals that may cause an allergic reaction. Since cannabis topicals are made from cannabis plants, their benefits come from a natural source. If your skin is sensitive or you are just cautious about what products you use, topicals can be a natural, organic option to consider.

Natural skin is not only good for you, but it is good for the environment as well. Chemical-laden products manufactured in labs and factories can result in byproducts that are harmful to wildlife and ecosystems, whereas natural products are less likely to make a negative environmental impact.

Comes in a Variety of Formulas

Not keen on the idea of applying cannabis oil directly to your skin? Fear not – topicals come in all sorts of forms, such as:

  • Cream
  • Body Wash
  • Lotion
  • Face Wash
  • Salve
