Why Cannabis Oil is Ideal For Skincare?
Though cannabis smoking has a lot of benefits and effects on our body but do you know that it can also cause aging effects. So, in order to not get the aging effects, we can intake cannabis in the form of oils.
THC, the active compound of the cannabis plant makes it resistant to different pathogens. Secondly, THC also absorbs the UVB rays in order to protect the seeds of the plant from any kind of radioactive damage. This means that THC acts as an anti-oxidant and thus it is god for your skin as it fixes the wrinkles and the fine lines.
Hemp is full of Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, which makes it perfect for various types of skin treatments. There are a number of petroleum jellies and serums available in the market that claim to provide the required benefits to our skin. But they also contain harmful chemicals in them that cause more harm rather than the benefits.
