Hemp CBD Oil: Anti-Aging Effects
Due to technology and modern studies, many CBD beauty sectors have found a treatment for the aging process. The US Government has a patent, 6630507, on cannabinoids as an antioxidant. In fact, many CBD products worldwide have been emerging as a result of thorough study by dermatologists and pharmaceutical companies. There are toners, moisturizers, and night creams that work as an anti-aging application. Most of them have the “usual” components, but what is surprisingly possible is the rise of Cannabidiol as effective for the anti-aging process for the skin.
What is aging and what causes it?
Normal aging occurs when our bodies replace aging cells with healthy ones at a decreased rate. Increased aging happens when our body, especially our skin, is exposed to the sun’s radiation, environmental toxins, and pathogens (namely bacteria, fungi, and viruses). Remember learning that our skin is our largest organ? Exposures from our environment and what we consume boil down to an alteration (mutation) in our basic DNA structure. Our exposures to sunlight and all the others are accumulating while we age. That’s why the seven (7) signs of aging appear! They are:
What is CBD Oil and how can it help it the process of aging?
First things first: CBD oil won’t get you high because it doesn’t have the mind-altering properties of marijuana’s tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. CBD and THC are sourced from two different compounds of the cannabis plant. We don’t have to worry about psycho-activity because CBD oil came from a marijuana plant. You just need to know how much THC is in a final product especially if you buy it from a dispensary.
CBD Oil or cannabidiol is a compound found in cannabis sativa that is non-psychoactive (as mentioned above) and safe to use in young and old people. Scientists and the medical researchers have found other various medicinal applications of this compound including:
Even before the arrival of the confirmation of the clinical proof with regard to the effectiveness of CBD Oil, many beauty companies have already been on board in using CBD oil to treat the aging process. CBD oil could help in these three main areas of aging:
Fighting Free Radicals:
CBD has a significant ability to fight the proliferation of free radicals due to its powerful antioxidant characteristics. Free radicals are made through a natural process in the body. They are a by-product of a cell when they create energy. Free radicals are an uncharged molecule (typically highly reactive and short-lived) having an unpaired valence electron. The body doesn’t always have enough antioxidants to stabilize these free radicals, and eventually, the unpaired molecules will start pulling the positive particles in your DNA – leading to damaged DNA – where the aging process starts.
This is where the CBD oil comes in to help you with the aging process. The CBD oil provides missing particles to the lonely unpaired molecules (free radicals).
One of the functions of the CBD oil is its anti-inflammatory effect. It helps calm the skin, especially those that are sensitive and acne-prone types of skin. Acne is an inflammatory skin condition, and if you are so eager to get rid of those pimples, CBD oil could be a great help for you. It helps diminish and soothe redness and bumpiness of breakouts, supporting a youthful and younger skin.
Supporting Neuro Function
Many scientists have proven with strong evidence that CBD and other cannabinoids help in protecting nerve and brain cells from damage and cognitive decline due to aging. As we age, our healthy brain cells start to decline, and memory issues arise. Based on studies, it’s thought that cannabinoid activity protects against cognitive decline. This is what the cannabis community and scientists are getting excited about. They are studying other cannabinoids to see which is most effective for neuro-regeneration and repair.
Doesn’t it make sense that when our neuro system is working properly it helps all the other systems in our body work properly, too?
CBD Oil Legality
The legality of CBD oil in the United States and in many other parts of the globe is still a grey area – it depends on your state and even municipalities. CBD and products derived from hemp are federally legal. State laws have some restrictions so know your own state laws and be discrete. And, obviously, there are different laws from different countries. Nevertheless, it’s quite a trend now, and more and more beauty products from cannabis sativa have been emerging worldwide for anti-aging uses.
Topical skin treatments are helpful because of the direct application and absorption of the product applied to your skin. It has been proven to be helpful for many people with mild to severe skin conditions.
If your body has systematic conditions many times it shows up on your skin. We recommend trying hemp oil rich in CBD to help your body fight the aging effects and inflammation.
A combined topical and internal approach, we believe, gives your body the best chance at feeling and looking its best.
