Soap is a staple in every bathroom in every home across North America, and that’s no surprise considering it’s an essential item for personal hygiene. Whether it’s a CBD soap bar or liquid soap, most of us have it in our showers and make use of it every day. There’s many different types of soap available, but one of the most interesting new choices among them is CBD soap.
Some may not be familiar with CBD (cannabidiol). It’s one of the cannabinoids (active ingredients) in the cannabis plant. Cannabis is most commonly associated with marijuana, the dried flowers of the plant, and the mind-altered state it can produce.
It’s important to understand that state – or ‘high’ as it’s commonly referred to – is the result of an entirely different cannabinoid in the plant. It’s THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) that creates that effect, while CBD has no potential for mental impairment whatsoever. So, before you try it, you should know that CBD will not get you high when ingested on its own.
CBD Soap Benefits
CBD can do a lot for improving the health and appearance of your skin, as well as helping to reduce the severity of certain skin ailments. Wash regularly with a CBD infused soap bar and you may experience:
- Less general skin irritation, along with smoother and more supple skin
- Relief from dry skin, rashes, and blotchy skin
- Reduced severity of inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and acne
- Enhanced relief from pain, including pain from sunburn
- Better protection against skin infections
- Slowing the growth of abnormal skin cells with skin cancer, aiding in treatment
Among other benefits.
Regular use of CBD oil soap may also provide more long-term benefits as CBD as absorbed through the skin on an ongoing basis. These benefits include relief from chronic pain, improved mental health and balance, and more. When using liquid CBD soap or a CBD soap bar, the CBD absorbs through the skin.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, applying it to the skin also enhances skin cell growth. It can also defend against wrinkles and fine lines and counters the effect of free radical damage to the skin from UV light, smoke, and other environmental pollutants.
It’s quite likely that we’ll see CBD soap becoming increasingly available to consumers in the near future. All of the skin benefits that can come along with using it will appeal to people who want the healthiest skin possible, or to treat skin ailments more effectively.
