cannabis and skin care

For centuries, plants have been grown and utilized for all forms of human health and health maintenance. Specific to the inner, plants can help nourish homeostasis- overall body balance. Specific to skincare, the vitamins, fatty acids, and omegas found in plants help nourish and treat hair and skin: sunflower, mint, and aloe are three plants that are great for skin care and overall health.

Cannabis, both hemp and marijuana, both of which are plants, have been studied for overall health and skincare benefits, and the results are amazing. Cannabis is loaded with compounds called cannabinoids, each of them a little miracle on it’s own, that work with the other compounds to treat the needs of the body. As it relates to skincare, cannabinoids have many benefits.
