Recently mainstream beauty stores like Sephora have been rolling out cannabis-derived beauty and skincare products like hemp seed facial oils and CBD body lotions. However none of these “highly rated” products use quality full spectrum CBD, and none of them have THC. Not even the Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Lotion — which contains high amounts of CBD, containsTHC.
Why Do You Want THC in a CBD Skin Cream?
The only CBD that works like a revolutionary skin care miracle is Full Spectrum CBD, and full spectrum CBD has trace amounts of THC. That’s why you can’t get it over the counter. That’s why Sephora can’t sell it.
It’s so good… it’s illegal!
Will the THC in full spectrum CBC cream get me high?
This is the main reason why most people look for CBD that has no THC. Let us be clear: the trace amounts of THC are only enough to give you the good benefits, like antioxidants, anti inflammation , encouraging sebum production, and soothing sensitive skin. As a bonus, your skin full spectrum CBD skin cream will also give you other CBD health benefits like anti-anxiety, pain relief, better sleeps, relaxation, and less stress…all of which is great for the skin!
Here are a few cases where you might want to consider a CBD-only cream
- If you have to undergo drug testing, full-spectrum CBD may be more likely to show up on a drug test. However, there may be a slight possibility that isolate products will show up, too. Even “THC-free” CBD products may contain trace amounts of THC. Why would you risk thinking you’re going to pass a drug test only to find out that the “pure” cbd isolate left you with THC in your system. You may as well dive in and get the real deal.
- If you want to take large doses of CBD. Isolate allows you to take higher doses of CBD without worrying about the subtle effects of a small amount of THC. In the case of skin cream, you aren’t really going to be doing high doses so it’s not relevant.
