The Beauty Benefits of CBD Oil

By now, you've probably heard about CBD (cannabidiol) oil being incorporated into beauty products. Nope, it won't get you high since it doesn't contain THC, the psychoactive element in marijuana. But it may help soothe hot, itchy, painful skin sensations, according to Joshua Zeichner, M.D., assistant professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. There's also some evidence that it could help treat acne-prone skin because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Cool, right?
