Does CBD hail from hemp only?

Lots of confusion abounds over whether cannabidiol (CBD) hails from cannabis or hemp. The short answer is that CBD typically hails from hemp CBD. A minority, however, of CBD compound manufacturers experiment with cannabis CBD in prototype products — a compound currently being evaluated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for possible legalization.

Hemp and cannabis (so legally defined by the US government) represent different varieties of the Cannabis sativa L. plant. The varieties of Cannabis sativa L. today fall under one of the two official varieties of either “hemp” — containing 0.3% THC or less — or “cannabis” — containing more than 0.3% THC.

A rule of thumb for differentiating the two types of Cannabis sativa L. plants is that hemp plants contain more basic-molecule cannabidiol (CBD) while cannabis plants contain the more complex-molecule tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — the specific psychoactive compound that gives way to the “high” associated with the popular plant.

CBD is minimally psychoactive compared to THC and carries the golden promise of not producing the euphoric state so directly linked to cannabis consumption.


Commercial hemp, in addition, typically stems from the fiber and seeds of the hemp plant rather than the shaft or leaf; though, again, a minority of producers today test and experiment with the non-fiber-and-seed parts of the hemp plant. In the United States, the FDA allows hemp-derived CBD or outright hemp — but not cannabis — in topical skincare cosmetic solutions, such as: creams, masks, serums, and body oils. It also bans the two Cannabis sativa L. types for all food and beverages. CBD is also available in gels, extracts, supplements, gummies, and more, which are legally sold only in certain states.

What are the benefits and non-benefits of CBD cosmetics?

CBD, which is non-psychoactive, is known to relieve pain, insomnia, and anxiety. However, it appears in skincare products as a main counter-agent to dark circles and puffiness. Their essential fatty acids make them good moisturizers, too.

Products with minimal CBD amounts, at the same time, guarantee powerful antioxidant properties that help protect the skin against free radical damage that cause hated sagginess and depression-stirring wrinkles.

Excessive use or unique sensitivity to CBD can lead to the adverse symptoms of irritability, fatigue, and nausea.


Why are CBD cosmetics a trend?

Legal cannabis inclusion in products is having a major impact on every industry, from fashion, to beauty, to medicine, to journalism, to food and drink, and more. Not that long ago, the star-shaped iconic cannabis leaf passed on from the micro-niche of, say, Grateful Dead and Bob Marley fans to the chic fashion collections of Stella McCartney and Jeremy Scott.

Cannabis is on the path of becoming accepted in the mainstream, with many a social observer betting that even more US states will legalize the plant’s use in products in the future. Moreover, it entails, as Vetements has proven on the runway, a fashion and beauty statement that continues to court controversy. Voguish and trendy, CBD use in cosmetics is certainly blooming.

As consumption grows, supporters hope its health properties and benefits will reach a wider audience.

Will cannabis firmly shape up to truly revolutionize beauty product lines? Remember manufacturers are presently working hard to develop miracle cosmetic stuff from the highly popular green leaf… Will it happen? Declare your opinion!


Whether CBD cosmetics are a thumbs-up or thumbs-down option for you — or you’re in the “undecided” group — they’re transforming the cosmetics field. Consider trying a dab on your skin today!
