CBD & CBG Skin Care Benefits

Welcome back to the CBx Essentials blog! Lately, we have been discussing the benefits of CBG. Though its counterpart CBD is more widely known, CBG could provide different and even more benefits, including those for skin care — that is why we include both in our creams. We also include both so we can utilize the entourage effect, but we will discuss that further below.

Shop all of our products online and be sure to stock up as some of the driest months of the year are approaching. Winter can take its toll on our skin as when the weather cools down and we turn on the heat. In some cases, the food we eat during these months is more dehydrating and can contribute to dry skin. Keep your skin looking and feeling good all fall and winter long with our CBx Essentials CBG cream and salves. 

7 Benefits of CBG Natural Pain Relief Cream

One of the reasons why our creams and salves are so effective is due to our products having full-spectrum cannabis products in them. Full-spectrum means that the product still has all the cannabinoids found in them as well as the phytonutrients and terpenes. We do this so you can get the most out of our products. When other cannabinoids are used together, they enhance the benefits that they provide. This is called the entourage effect. Benefits you can expect to experience when using our CBG cream include: 

Acne Relief

Nothing is more frustrating than being an adult and struggling with acne. There are a lot of reasons why we might breakout: hormones, stress, poor diet, exposure to dirty surfaces, and others. In some cases, the root cause must be addressed. However, sometimes finding relief can be through the topical products we put on our face. 

CBD can reduce the appearance of acne as it possesses anti-inflammatory properties and it can decrease excessive sebum production. CBG specifically can also provide antibacterial and antifungal benefits and could reduce the occurrence of acne.  

Anti-Aging

Cannabis products can also nourish the skin with antioxidants which can reduce the effects and appearance of aging. As a result, cannabis creams and salves can get rid of wrinkles, skin dullness, ruddy skin tone, and nourish troublesome skin. Though we usually just think about the aging that will occur on our face, it is important to think about the rest of our body too.    

Healing

Our CBG cream also promotes healing. Recent studies have linked CBG as a means of managing and possibly even curing eczema and psoriasis. CBG can reduce redness and inflammation, as well as itchiness associated with parched and irritated skin — and eczema. CBG also provides antibacterial and antifungal benefits keeping cracked skin from becoming infected.    

Full of Vitamins

CBD and CBG are also chock full of vitamins. These cannabinoids are a healthy source of essential fatty acids. They also provide Vitamin A which can protect your skin from the damaging effects of UV rays. Vitamin A also provides anti-aging properties as well as resistance to infection. Vitamin D can also be found in our CBG cream and it can minimize acne, improve the elasticity of your skin, and stimulate collagen production. 

There Are No Chemicals

You can enjoy all these benefits while not being exposed to chemicals. Many skin care brands offer products that provide benefits for our bodies, yet also compromise by including non-organic, harmful products. On the labels of CBx Essentials products, you will never find ingredients that you won’t recognize. We only use pure, organic ingredients.The cannabis that we use is always full-spectrum, allowing you to get the full benefit of what CBD and CBG cream can offer you. 

For Sensitive Skin

CBD and CBG creams are perfect for those with sensitive skin as they have soothing, anti-inflammatory properties. What’s more, because our products don’t have chemicals in them you can avoid irritation from poor ingredients like crude oils, alcohols, paraffin products, and more. Even if you don’t consider your skin to be sensitive, you can enjoy soothing properties from the exterior elements and free radicals that can ravage our skin especially during the winter months. 

Pain Relief

You may also experience pain relief in addition to all of these other benefits. Because the highest concentration of CB receptors are found in our skin, topical products can be highly effective for not only soothing skin irritations but also muscle and joint pain and inflammation. It may even help to promote healing. Instead of reaching for the pain reliever in the medicine cabinet, apply a little CBG natural pain relief cream. 

Knowing What Your Skin Needs

If your skin is extra dry or prone to breakouts, it can be difficult to know what to do if you have tried everything. It can also be frustrating when it seems that our skin has been fine, but is all-of-a-sudden breaking out for no apparent reason. There are a lot of reasons why our skin might not be looking or feeling its best. Here are some reasons why: 

  • Stress
  • Environmental stressors
  • Dryness/not getting enough moisture
  • Poor diet
  • Drinking too little water
  • Deeper health issue
  • Exposure to irritant
  • Allergies

The skin can often be seen as the window to the health of the rest of the body. If a problem persists, be sure to investigate to get to the root cause. To have skin that looks and feels good, it is always best to take a holistic approach and make sure that you are adequately caring for the rest of your body. 

But My Skin is Oily . . . 

Often one of the reasons why some people choose not to moisturize is due to their perception that they have oily skin. Some people truly do have oily skin. However, in many cases, a person’s skin is oily because it is dry and their skin is overcompensating and producing an abundance of oil. The best way to solve this problem is to begin moisturizing or to up the intensity of the moisture you’re applying.
