If you’re reading this article, then we assume you have heard of CBD oil. It can be hard to ignore the popularity as you overhear friends and colleagues discussing it and it continues to make headlines. If you’re considering popping a CBD oil product on your Christmas wish list, then let us tell you a little more about it. Stick the kettle on, pop your feet up, and learn more about the rise of CBD oil.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD is an extract from the cannabis plant. It’s comprised of about 80 cannabinoids which react harmoniously with the human body’s own endocannabinoid system. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) – the psychoactive cannabinoid which gives people the feeling of being high, found in marijuana – CBD is believed to have calming and anti-inflammatory properties, without mind-altering qualities.
The benefits of CBD make it a great ingredient to include in beauty and skincare products.
When CBD is extracted in a liquified form it is known as CBD oil. It works by binding itself to the CB receptors in the endocannabinoid system, influencing the neurotransmitters which are responsible for regulating sleep, appetite, mood, pain and immune response.
The Rise of CBD
As cannabis started being legalized across some states in America, brands began adding CBD into their beauty products, and consumers saw a rise in CBD products available to buy.
The CBD makeup sector has grown exponentially and is expected to be worth $22bn by 2022 in the United States. The popularity of CBD products reflects the increase and understanding of anxiety amongst today’s consumers. As more people become aware of their symptoms and mental health, they are looking for products that can help them relax.
In 2018, the government passed the Farm Bill, making CBD legal to sell across the country, so long as the product contains less than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the compound found in marijuana that makes people feel high). So, since the passing of the Farm Bill, more businesses have taken the opportunity to create products that contain CBD. Producers and consumers regard CBD highly for its natural health properties without the risk of getting high.
