The marijuana plant never ceases to amaze locals and strangers with its incredible benefits. It is a plant that provides a large number of medicinal properties and can be used for both recreational and medical purposes.
Currently one of the most frequent uses of cannabis and its derivatives is skin and scalp care. And is that in addition to the many proven benefits of consuming marijuana, we can also use cannabis to improve the health of our skin and hair.
The therapeutic potential of marijuana
Marijuana contains hundreds of cannabinoids, the best known being THC and CBD. The first is famous for its psychoactive effects, it is the cannabinoid that produces the “high” effect. Its medicinal properties are related to the activation of appetite, the reduction of nausea or even the treatment of Glaucoma.
CBD, however, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. That is, it does not produce the effect of the stone at any time. However, it serves to reduce anxiety, contributes to the treatment of degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, and is a powerful pain reliever and anti-inflammatory.
But are these two cannabinoids the only components that provide medicinal attributes to marijuana? Or is it that there are other properties of the plant that we have not yet treated?
So far we have talked about the main cannabinoids as well as their effects and therapeutic potential. But not only cannabinoids have beneficial properties. Many other compounds present in cannabis also provide benefits for our health, especially for hair and skin.
Cannabis oil and its benefits for the skin
Hemp oil extracted from the seeds of the marijuana plant does not contain cannabinoids like THC or CBD. However, this excellent vegetable oil is one of the most complete and healthy that we can consume due to its high content of Omega 3 and 6. But not only that, hemp oil is rich in essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and is a complete source of high-quality protein. Its extraordinary aroma and nutty flavor make it an oil highly appreciated by the most demanding palates.
But not only is its consumption beneficial, it is also used to make natural creams and cosmetics. Its hydrating and antioxidant power is scientifically proven and many people use it to treat skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis or atopic skin with a tendency to become irritated and dry.
Creams and skin treatments that include marijuana oil as the main ingredient, are very effective in keeping our skin and scalp healthy.
Cannabis is excellent for hydrating and regenerating the skin, especially the most sensitive ones. But it is also great for treating scalp problems like dandruff and flaking. In addition, hemp oil provides shine, elasticity and softness to our hair.
Best of all, it is an easily absorbed product, very easy to use and completely legal. Since as we have said, hemp oil does not generate any psychoactive effect.
