As we begin to collectively accept plant-based alternatives for medicinal purposes, it's no surprise CBD takes the spotlight in combating pain, stress, and anxiety. Unlike the more popularly known chemical THC, CBD doesn’t contain any psychoactive properties. This makes it a lot more appealing to those who need marijuana's healing touch, but aren’t necessarily interested in going to work high as a kite. Luckily, we’re seeing an increase in the variety of products available to the public as marijuana's reputation shifts in the public sphere. If smoking pot and experiencing the properties of THC isn’t your thing, you can still count on mother nature to have your back. While Body Shop Hemp and Lord Jones are popular in the CBD beauty world, these cannabis-infused beauty products provide healing properties to help with anxiety, inflammation, soreness, and pain.
