No need to panic, CBD has no psychotropic effects, unlike THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, the substance that gives cannabis its psychotropic effects.

The active ingredients in cannabis are called cannabinoids and can be extracted from cannabis and used in various kinds of products. An emerging market is that of skincare products enriched with cannabinoids. Not much research has been done on this combination, but anecdotal information is purely positive. People who use it notice especially that cannabinoid products hydrate well.
They also praise the anti-inflammatory properties that repair damaged skin and lips. What’s more, there’s a growing scientific focus on the effect on skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, dry skin, and muscle cramps. There is also evidence from clinical research by some leading organizations such as the National Centre for Biotechnology Information that cannabinoids have anti-aging and antioxidant properties.
How cannabinoids and skin work together
Cannabinoids in cannabis work together with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This is a network of cell receptors that extends throughout the human body. The ECS contributes to all kinds of vital functions and, if necessary, restores our health.
Various studies also confirm that cannabinoids, particularly CBD, are responsible for lipid production and therefore for regulating conditions such as dry skin or acne if applied topically as ointment or cream. If such a product contains THC in addition to all cannabinoids and terpenes, its beneficial effects will increase considerably.
In particular, its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties are enhanced. The mind-expanding effects of THC do not or hardly occur. Unfortunately, all products containing THC are illegal in the Netherlands for the time being.
Let us discover six care products that enrich the bathroom:
1. Soap enriched with cannabis oil
Cannabis seed oil is anti-inflammatory and helps soothe overactive oil glands in the skin. This offers benefits in acne. Back pain, aching muscles, and joints can be reduced after a scrub with cannabinoid-rich soap. These products are non-psychoactive and therefore safe for the whole family. This soap may contain CBD. Please note that all other ingredients are gentle on the skin.
2. Bath bubbles
The popularity of cannabinoid-filled effervescent bath balls is increasing. Warm bath water opens pores so cannabinoids easily penetrate the upper skin layers.
3. Lip balms
Lip balm soothes chapped lips and repairs the skin. The popular cannabis product overthrows preconceptions about ‘stoners.’ Whether or not the balm contains THC, the most important thing is that it contains CBD oil and other cannabinoids that allow lips to rebuild their natural oil barrier.
4. Cannabis hand protection
The Body Shop has been making hand protection products with cannabis for years, even before it was cool. Now that beauty experts around the world are contributing to a craze, the product is becoming a bestseller. Ointments and creams can treat skin problems; from dry skin to rheumatoid arthritis attacks and sunburn. Please note: such products with THC are not legally available in the Netherlands.
5. Cannabis perfume/aftershave
Apply an earthy and delicate scent that doesn’t smell like a tub of cannabis, of course, more like a chic Eastern European boutique.
6. Anti-wrinkle cream with cannabinoids
Look for moisturizing facial creams with cannabis oil and coconut oil with cannabinoids. These products protect the skin and contribute to its restorative properties. They also combat aging. Cannabis seed oil regulates the skin’s natural oil production to keep it firm.
Many of these products are on the rise. They are currently finding their way into nature conservation shops, but they are also becoming more and more mainstream. It is possible to get them anyway online at shops that specialize in cannabis products.
