11 Cannabis-Infused Beauty Products That Are Great For Your Skin (but Don't Get You High)
Recently, we've noticed a rising trend of beauty products formulated with hemp seed oil. Unlike other parts of the cannabis plant, the hemp seeds used to make the oil do not contain THC, which is the active ingredient in marijuana that makes you feel "stoned." But they do contain ingredients that are great for your skin and hair. Rich in omega and amino acids, as well as vitamins A, E, and C, hemp seed oil is a great organic moisturizer and heals dry, cracked skin. If this trend makes you nervous, there's nothing to worry about, because the only side effect you'll feel is softer skin and silkier hair. Check out some of these popular hemp-infused products that you might be surprised to learn are derived from a cannabis plant.
