19 Weed-Infused Beauty Products to Help You Celebrate 4/20
Our favorite pop culture holiday is here again, and the timing couldn’t be better. There’s a cannabis renaissance happening in the beauty world and people are becoming acquainted with the lesser-known effects of the marijuana plant. (Rihanna is basically the spokesperson for the most important one — looking cool.) Cannabis contains up to 133 known cannabinoids, compounds that interact with the body’s internal endocannabinoid system. The one everyone’s so obsessed with right now is CBD (short for Cannabidiol). It works with the body’s receptors to do several things, like repel stress, reduces pain and inflammation, and even clear up the skin. The only thing it won’t do is get you high. To some cannabis enthusiasts, that might sound like a bummer, but the fact that it doesn’t get you stoned is one reason CBD is so popular. It gives people an opportunity to experience benefits of the plant without the psychotropic effects. No munchies either. Here are a few of our favorite ways to go green for 4/20.
