Why is CBD So Popular Now?

The use of hemp products and CBD products as a cosmetic or for health care has been surging in popularity. In response to the passing of a significant farm bill, hemp and CBD products are more in-demand. More American farms began growing batch after batch of organic hemp, and independent laboratories ("independent labs") or third-party laboratories ("third-party labs") started their own research on hemp and CBD. These lab tests and lab results led to the production and selling of third-party lab tested cannabis-based products. Independently tested cannabis-based products are the ideal choice for consumers as it allows them to truly know what they are getting. The cannabis and hemp market today has more CBD companies than ever producing a wide range of CBD products from a supplemental dietary product to CBD capsules, CBD tinctures, CBD soft gels, and CBD topicals. Lab reports and test results allow companies in the CBD industry to make their final product with additional ingredients such as cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA). These ingredients have similar benefits to CBD and can contribute to higher-quality products.

Cannabidiol (CBD) has seen such a surge in popularity because of user’s testament and praise. CBD did not initially grow by large corporate marketing campaigns. It grew by word of mouth and shared success stories told to family and friends. This type of growth and success is rooted in anecdotal evidence and grows more and more through scientific research and analysis. We have known for decades that the human body, and many living creatures contain a modulatory body system known as the Endocannabinoid System. Phytocannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBN, and THC mimic the endogenous cannabinoids produced naturally in our bodies. These cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system to provide a natural way to protect the body against inflammation, swelling, infections, and plays an important role in hormone secretion, blood flow, appetite regulation, metabolism and energy levels.

The CBD oils, tinctures, gummies, pills, edibles, salves, creams, and skincare products marketed in the hemp and cannabis industry allow people to harness the anti-inflammatory properties and soothing benefits of CBD. People who have an autoimmune disease, sensitive skin, irritated skin or lead active lifestyles may seek a muscle relaxant or pain reliever for pain and injuries. CBD can help with that. People with painful conditions such as dermatitis ("eczema"), fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, osteoarthritis, and psoriasis, may need products that provide a significant reduction or temporary relief of minor aches, major aches, and muscle soreness. CBD can help with that. People struggling with obesity, imbalanced appetite, depression, anxiety, and stress can struggle for years with no relief. CBD can help with that.

CBD has proven to be a benefit to so many who struggle with a variety of ailments, but most recently, CBD has been taking the beauty and cosmetic industry by storm. It has become one of the most sought-after ingredients on the market. Many people interested in enhancing their skincare may use a cleanser, serum, facial oil, moisturizer, or lotions. CBD skincare products made of full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, or hemp seed oil can enhance antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in a more potent way than traditional skincare products. This one ingredient demonstrates dermatologist-noted properties that benefit the skin and the human body. CBD skincare products and body lotions can soothe the skin, showing effectiveness in alleviating inflammation and rosacea, and controlling psoriasis, eczema, blemishes, and acne. In addition to its anti-inflammatory effects, CBD can enhance antioxidant effects that assist skin moisture and elasticity. This ingredient's potency can help rejuvenate the skin and eliminate itchiness, dryness, redness, puffiness, and soreness. 

With so many benefits it is easy to see how CBD has become so popular. Taking CBD oil soft gels, CBD capsules, CBD pills, or oil tinctures is a convenient way to soothe mild or chronic pain symptoms, care for your body, and achieve better peace of mind. The combination of topical CBD and internal CBD can provide positive results such as soothing, rejuvenating sensations, and anti-inflammatory effects. Topical CBD products free of harmful chemicals such as serums, salves, and gels and skincare can help provide fast relief for discomfort and restore irritated skin, and rejuvenate the appearance of skin.
