When people think of cannabis entering the modern market, they think of joints in cigarette packs. They imagine brownies, cookies, and candies infused with psychoactive THC. And this will surely all become a reality. But thinking of legal cannabis in these confines alone discounts the possibilities of the plant. We can see some of these possibilities in the current explosion of CBD in the cosmetic industry.
As of right now, there are colognes, moisturizers, nail polishes and serums being made with hemp-derived CBD. Creators of these products boast about the power of the non-psychoactive ingredient for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They believe CBD can thicken eyelashes, smooth wrinkles, improve skin quality and even uplift our general mood.
One of the most exciting things about recreational cannabis is how artisans will be able to incorporate the plant and its many components into a variety of product offerings. Beauty industry experts believe this is only the beginning of CBD in the cosmetic industry, but here are some must-try products that are already on the market for all you CBD lovers.
