CBD hits the mainstream

 

A Cornish company has launched a new skincare range using CBD and hemp seed oil as ingredients.

Of all the trends in the beauty world, few are having as big an impact as skin care products made with CBD oil, or Cannabidiol to give it its proper name.

Cannabidiol is an extract of the cannabis plant, as is hemp seed oil which is incredibly rich in nutrients such as omega 3 and 6. The nutrient-rich ingredients are hailed as helping everything from age wrinkles to inflammation and CBD is proving to be one of the biggest buzzwords in the beauty industry right now.

One of the founders of Bude-based EthicaCBD, Ruarri Spurgeon, said: “Thanks to increased medical research and a re-education around CBD, the naturally occurring compound has become more and more desirable. We’re proud to be leading the way for ethical, pure CBD and hemp skin care products here in Cornwall.”

CBD is legal in the UK. Although derived from the cannabis plant, the most important distinction to make between CBD and other cannabis-related products is the absence of THC (the chemical which gives cannabis users the famous ‘high’). The number of people using CBD oil in the UK alone is estimated to stand at around 1.3 million.
