We are all looking for that one thing that can keep us looking and feeling younger. Aging is not our friend and I think we are all looking for products that can help us maintain our youthful glow. People who use cannabis are aware of the benefits that it offers. But I am not sure they are aware of the anti-aging benefits that they could be taking advantage of. Most people are aware of how THC can reduce stress and help with pain. Here are a few things about THC and CBD that most people may not be aware of:
THC and CBD can relieve pain and soreness in muscles. This can help your mindset and worries over pain.
Hemp oil is a great natural moisturizer! Many mainstream moisturizers are adding hemp oil to their products.
Hemp oils can be added to lip balms as a more natural base and is great for moisturizers.
Studies show that people report less skin breakouts when using a cannabis-based product. This is because of the anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects that cannabis is known to have.
Cannabis can also help with that puffiness that many of us have due to our poor diets. This is helpful again because of those anti-inflammatory properties.
Cannabis is a stress reducer and can relieve anxiety, which is something that can help everyone look and feel better.
CBD improves the production of collagen in the body. This makes skin and muscles firmer.
THC, CBD and CBG can help with sleep. As we age, it is important for us to get enough sleep. The effects of lack of sleep can take a toll on the body and make our bodies age faster. Edibles are a great way to help with our sleep routines and ensure we stay rested.
Beneficial Terpenes and Strains
Strains that offer terpenes like Myrcene can be used as an anti-inflammatory. Myrcene can also have anti-bacterial effects. Strains that we carry that will contain Myrcene include
Granddaddy Purple, Blue Dream, KC Kush and Clementine.
Not only do we carry flower that contain these terpenes, we also have these strains available in vape cartridges, which may relate to those looking to benefit from the anti-aging process.
Limonene can help reduce stress, which we can all use help with. It can also relieve GERDS, which many aging Americans struggle with. Strains that we carry that will contain Limonene include Sunset Sherbert, Gorilla Pie and Clementine.
Edibles are something that can also aid in our search for anti-aging products. They can aid in sleep and relaxation. They also carry may of the terpenes that we seek out to assist in our goal of a younger, healthier you.
Topicals are recommended for anti-aging and beauty because they eliminate the smoking aspect of the product which we all know can create what is known as “smoker lines” around the mouth, face and neck. I am hopeful that in the coming weeks we will carry topical products to help with the health of our patients.
