Why CBD is effective on the skin

THE GROWING ENTHUSIASM RELATED TO THE USE OF CBD
Cannabidiol has the ability to bind to receptors which are particularly abundant in our skin.
The skin itself, carrying out its role of protective barrier, produces cannabinoids. The so-called “endocannabinoids” are lipid molecules produced by the body to respond to various kinds of stimuli, both external (ultraviolet rays, pollution, smoke, temperature variations, …) and internal (stress, poor diet, hormonal changes, drugs, … ). They also play an action in the control of pain in the central nervous system, and in recent years they have also been studied for their role in the skin processes. Endocannabinoids are, in fact, involved in the regulation of various biological processes, such as the growth of skin cells and the production of mediators such as cytokines by these cells. By modulating the production of cytokines in skin cells, endocannabinoids perform an anti-inflammatory action; they also act directly on immune system cells which are present in the skin, by binding with CB1 and CB2 receptors. For this reason, it is believed that endocannabinoids and their receptors are part of the adaptive immune system involved in the regulation of skin inflammation. And since skin inflammation is the enemy of collagen, CBD has also proved to be a valid ingredient for reducing the signs of aging.
