CBD, the substance extracted from the cannabis plant, has been associated with the treatment for body pain, anxieties, sleep disorder, and epilepsy, among many other illnesses. It lacks the psychoactive effect that the other cannabis compound, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), has that makes users high, making it safer for consumption.

CBD is also known for anti-inflammatory properties that make it soothing for the skin and effective in reducing acne problems. This is exactly why several cosmetic products and personal care businesses have been incorporating the substance in their products.
