CBD & Your Skin: What to Know

One of CBD’s main functions is the treatment of inflammation. Also known as cannabinol, CBD is able to remedy some of the most acute forms of inflammation throughout the body’s muscles and organs. Our skin is the largest organ of them all, making CBD a perfect natural remedy for any inflammatory issues that it may face. 

One clinical study in particular points to cannabinol’s effectiveness for inflammatory skin issues. Patients with psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and scars were all given a CBD enriched topical ointment. This resulted in significantly improved skin parameters for the patients. Likewise, a review published in July 2017 investigated CBD’s effect on itch and the results are astonishing. Patients with uremic pruritus were given a topical cream containing cannabinoids. After an application period of 3 weeks, 8 of the 21 patients had their pruritus completely eliminated. Similarly, acne is another skin disease that can be remedied by CBD. As one of the leading human skin diseases, acne presents obstacles for many people worldwide. A clinical journal published in 2014 contains collective findings that point to cannabinol’s effectiveness on acne. The journal finds that CBD’s combined amount of lipostatic, antiproliferative, and anti-inflammatory effects show promise in being a therapeutic product for the treatment of acne. Such studies and reviews provide ongoing evidence of cannabinol’s therapeutic effects on the skin. Oils, soaps, eye balms, body lotions, and serums are just a few of the ways that cannabinol can be added to a daily skin regimen. 

Your Daily Routine Could Start with CBD

As it’s benefits become more and more apparent, CBD has ended up in many of the products that we use on a daily basis. Whether it be a sleep aid, a remedy for anxiety, or a skin product, CBD is everywhere. Its rapid market pace has led many industries to catch on to its natural benefits. Skincare is the latest frontier for cannabinol and it’s really no surprise at all. From relieving psoriasis to dermatitis, CBD has earned its right as a mainstay in the skincare industry. Consider adding CBD to your daily routine and see the therapeutic benefits it can bring you.  

After seeing the multiple benefits that a wide variety of people have enjoyed from this plant, founders Vince Williamson and Derek Shields were moved to learn more about how they could get involved. With professional experience in contracting, Vince used his resources to obtain the proper permits in the community to find local farmers, farm land, and begin the process. Derek has been growing hemp and working with CBD since 2012. While working with different strains, he found that each one, with its ratio of cannabinoids and terpenes, has it’s own unique healing properties. This is why Verda cultivates a variety of strains to benefit a wide range of symptoms. After suffering from a shoulder injury resulting in a replacement surgery, Vince made the decision to do without prescription pain medication and found that CBD was a successful replacement. He experienced a pain-free healing process during a time that was understood to be a relatively difficult recovery. Post-recovery, Vince’s continued testimony includes pain relief in several pain areas due to previous sports injuries. Both Vince and Derek are inspired to share the healing benefits, profitability, and culture of CBD/Hemp oil through Verda.

Defining Hemp

Hemp is a natural compound that is compatible with the endocannabinoid system in the human brain. Hemp can provide medicinal benefits without the reverse side effects we experience through prescription drugs. Acting as a natural healer, hemp may be used to alleviate pain, reduce anxiety, act as a sleep and relaxation aid, and provide relief as an anti-inflammatory.
