15 Hemp Infused Beauty Products For Celebrating 4/20 Year-Round
My dear friends, 4/20 is upon us! For an unconventional way to celebrate the "holiday," I'd recommend you get your hands one some hemp-infused beauty products. While none of these products will get you literally high, your body will feel so good you might think you are.
Fun fact: Elle shared that "THC — the main psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana — is actually an antioxidant (and anti-inflammatory!). The mag elaborated, "As an antioxidant, it can combat wrinkles and fine lines, and scientists and dermatologists are currently studying the ways that it could combat skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis." Crazy awesome, right? And since hemp oil is a 100 percent legal by-product of cannabis, you don't have to worry about the police knocking on your door.
If you still need a few more reasons to get stoked for hemp oil, Into the Gloss shared some additional beauty benefits of weed's oily friend. Jamyla Bennu, the creator of small-batch, natural skincare company Oyin Handmade told the site, "One of the main benefits of hempseed oil is all of the omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids it contains. They’re excellent to help nourish our hair and skin because they act as a vegetable protein, so they work not only for lubrication — as oils do — but they also help to strengthen and nourish from the inside out." Well, I'm sold!
