The use of cannabis for medical conditions is on the rise, and it’s also becoming a more common ingredient in beauty products. Cannabis is known to provide many benefits to the human body and cannabis beauty products can help to reduce skin inflammation and act as an antioxidant.
While cannabis beauty products are certainly in vogue right now, they’re not actually a new idea. The Body Shop has been producing moisturising creams with hemp as an active ingredient since the ‘90s. The Hemp bath and body collection is consistently one of the brand’s most popular product lines.
We’ve now got more choice of cannabis products than ever before so if you’re looking to regenerate your skin, add extra shine to your hair, or you just enjoy the floral, spicy scent of cannabis flower, check out our pick of the best cannabis beauty products around.
