Should I Use CBD Products on My Skin?
For many of us, our skin is fighting an uphill battle this winter in the colder areas of the world. It begs the question: Should I Use CBD Products on My Skin?
With everyone in Ontario, Canada being ordered to stay home, dry skin is rampant in my house.
The furnace is running at full tilt, and it’s cold and dry outside. Despite our obsession with vitamin D and drinking loads of water, my skin is just blah.
Can you relate?
Now, I take a daily dose of CBD which helps me feel fantastic, and I have to openly admit that if I hadn’t started, my skin would be worse.
I know this because when I did stop for a while when waiting for my CBD delivery to show up, my skin (and digestion) were horrible.
If you’ve frequented the drug store in your local town or city you may have noticed that more and more products out there are infusing CBD into them.
