The cannabis industry is changing the scope of business, especially in the medical industry. Discovered as early as 1940, cannabidiol (CBD) has been revolutionary in soothing pain and anxiety. Now, CBD oil is making waves in the beauty industry, by helping women make others “green” with envy as they age backward.  

Once upon a time, any use of the cannabis plant was frowned upon. In 2019, it is safe to say cannabis is king!  

When trying to find the right dosage of CBD oil, consider the following:

  • Start by purchasing high-quality oil from a reputable company. A higher-quality oil will be more bioavailable, so just a small dose can be enough. 
  • Begin with the recommended dosage on the bottle (especially if using it preventatively). 
  • Some notice a change immediately, while others don’t notice any improvement for several weeks. If after several weeks there is still no change, increase the dosage. 
  • As with most herbal supplements, a small dosage 3-4 times a day is usually more therapeutic than one large dose.     

Benefits of CBD Oil

Here are  three amazing benefits CBD oil can have on overall health and beauty, via  

Promotes Healthy Weight 
Cannabidiol can help in maintaining healthy blood sugar, stimulate genes and proteins that help to break down fat and increase mitochondria that help to burn calories. 

CBD also encourages the body to convert white fat to brown fat. White fat is the kind of fat we typically think of when we think about body fat. Brown fat exists in small deposits that behave differently than white fat. Brown fat is said to improve health by enhancing the body’s ability to burn white fat, create heat, and even regulate blood sugar.  

Improves Heart Health 
Heart disease is a growing problem today. In fact, it’s the leading cause of death in the U.S. A healthy lifestyle is a top priority for heart health, but CBD oil can also help. According to research, cannabidiol reduces artery blockage, reduces stress-induced cardiovascular response, and can lower blood pressure. It may also reduce cholesterol. 

CBD oil is helpful in preventing oxidative stress and inflammation, both of which are often precursors to heart disease.  

Improves Skin Conditions 
CBD oil can be used topically to treat skin conditions. Studies show that CBD oil has a high potential for treating skin conditions like eczema by encouraging abnormal cell death. It can also help regulate the skin’s oil production, reducing acne.
CBD also contains many nutrients, like vitamin E, that help to improve and protect the skin, making it easier to avoid wrinkles.
