One of the latest skincare trends is to include CBD products into the mix.
While many people tout the many benefits of hemp oil products, many still question the safety and effectiveness of things like hemp-infused lotion and CBD gummies.
Are these products really that safe?
The Basics of CBD Safety – Yes, These Products Are Safe to Use
A lot of people confuse hemp oil products with marijuana. The reason for this is because the cannabis plant is used to create CBD oil and hemp products, as well as marijuana.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical within the marijuana plant, as is THC, the chemical that produces a high when smoked.
Hemp is made from the roots of the marijuana plant (as opposed to the leaves, which are smoked). These roots have extremely low levels of THC. Therefore, we can be sure that when we use CBD products, like CBD gummies, we won’t end up as high as a kite. Instead, we’ll likely experience one of the many health benefits of this chemical, including:
- Improved sleep
- Reduced anxiety and depression
- Reduced inflammation, which can reduce the risk of certain diseases.
As with every supplement, some people have had side effects, so it’s always best to proceed with caution. For instance, some people have had diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, and changes in mood after ingesting CBD.
It’s also important to note that CBD can interfere with the effectiveness of certain prescription medications. It’s always best to talk to a doctor before taking a new supplement for this very reason.
Buyer Beware: Not All CBD Products Are Created Equal
For the most part, CBD is a safe ingredient in supplement and skin care products. That’s not to say, though, that all CBD is safe. Some manufacturers don’t have the highest standards, which means they produce a sub-standard product.
It’s not just the manufacturing process that we must worry about either – it’s the whole process, from the quality of the seeds and soils to the quality control that goes into producing them.
The roots of a plant absorb everything in the soil. Therefore, if the soil is of poor quality, the hemp product will be as well. It’s important, then, to carefully read product labels.
The label informs consumers of:
- Where the product was grown and manufactured (within the U.S. is best due to quality control standards)
- The potency of the product
- Microbial analysis
- Testing results for heavy metals.
