January is National CBD month. The first observance of the month took place in 2020 and since the start of last year I have seen an increasing amount of CBD in products. You may have seen skincare lines market ingredients such as CBD oil, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil or Hemp Oil. The rise of CBD skin care prompted me, and a few of you I'm sure, with a ton of questions like "Is it legal? Will it make me high? What are the skin benefits of CBD anyway?"
What is CBD skincare?
The name comes from the added CBD oil. CBD is short for Cannabidiol, which is extracted from the Cannabis Sativa Plant species. This plant contains more than 120 different so called cannabinoids, the ones most widely known are CBD and THC.
Is CBD Oil the same as Hemp Oil?
