Don't pop or pick. Use pot.
In case you hadn’t heard, the cannabis plant is incredible. Grown as either marijuana or hemp, this special species contains more than 200 types of natural chemicals called cannabinoids. THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, a cannabinoid famed for getting us high, exists only in marijuana. While less famous because it doesn’t intoxicate us in the same way THC does, CBD or cannabidiol is responsible for all the analgesic properties we enjoy in marijuana. It also exists in hemp.
As the marijuana industry thrusts little-known medicinal attributes into the spotlight, the overlooked benefits of hemp have begun to shine as well. Cannabis skincare products are emerging as a major market, most utilizing the oil and redness-fighting dream compound that is CBD. Specifically, CBD treats acne in two ways: halting oil production and soothing inflammation. We humans are the only animals that struggle with acne. Because we don’t have fur, our skin secretes oil to protect itself, especially on delicate epidermal surfaces like the face.
