CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating compound that naturally occurs in the cannabis plant. Research indicates that it helps to support wellness by keeping the body in balance. For more details, see our What is CBD? page.
Many people take CBD oil internally, so it enters the bloodstream and spreads the benefits throughout their bodies. CBD is absorbed through the skin in a more targeted way, making CBD oil for skin care a popular option when combined with other topical ingredients.
Topical CBD does not enter the bloodstream. Our Botanical CBD skincare products, like all federally legal CBD products, contain CBD from industrial hemp that by law has no more than 0.3 percent THC. At cbdMD we take extra measures to keep THC at undetectable levels. You can find a product’s lab results on our site to prove this.
Most of our CBD beauty products are based in plant oils that are gentle on skin, such as shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, and avocado oil. In addition, we use essential oils such as lavender oil, orange oil, lemon oil, and evening primrose oil, as well as beneficial extracts such as aloe juice, green tea, witch hazel, and willow bark. See our ingredient highlights here, and check the label on each product.
Many of our products have pleasant scents, which are due to the essential oils and other botanical ingredients. We don’t use any artificial fragrances or dyes in our CBD beauty products.
As noted above, topical CBD and internal CBD oil act somewhat differently on the body, so there should be no issues with using both.
There are no known side effects to CBD oil for skin, though if you experience any type of redness, reaction or irritation please discontinue use and consult your physician about your CBD regimen.
Everyone’s skin is unique, so most of our Botanicals line is for all skin types. We have just a few products that are for specialty use only: our Clearskin collection and ultra-moisturizing night CBD cream.
