Can Cannabidiol (CBD) help me in my selfcare routine?

A cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors in cells that represses neurotransmitter release in the brain. Ligands for these receptor proteins include the endocannabinoids (produced naturally in the body by animals), the phytocannabinoids (found in cannabis and some other plants), and synthetic cannabinoids (manufactured artificially). The most notable cannabinoid is the phytocannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis.

There are many ways to incorporate CBD oil and CBD products in to your self-care routine.  One of the most recent additions to its product category is skincare. 

With hundreds of CBD brands on the market and it is often hard to find a brand that is good value, made by experts, and which also delivers a good variety of products.  The use of CBD oil has been around for quite some time now, however skincare is probably the most recent advent to the CBD category.

Dr. Naomi Newman-Beinart, PhD is a Nutritionist (BSc) & Chartered Psychologist (PhD). She comments:

“CBD (Cannabidiol) is a chemical compound that is extracted from the cannabis plant.  Unlike the cannabis you may have heard of in social situations, cannabidiol does not have psychoactive properties (due to it being free of THC), and so is an appealing option for people looking for pain relief. It is thought that CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system (ECS) leading to reduced inflammation. The ECS was identified 30 years ago when it was found to be essential for regulating some important bodily processes including sleep, memory, pain sensation and mood.”

“CBD oil and CBD products are a great alternative to those wanting to avoid pain medication, as not only can it help reduce pain, it can also reduce anxiety and improve sleep, all ofwhich can help you cope better with your pain.

The correct dosage for you will depend on your body weight, your pain condition and level of pain and your individual body chemistry. For first first-time CBD oil users, I suggest starting with the recommended dosage on the bottle and adjusting the dose until you are happy with the results. But do note that it is generally recommended not to exceed the daily dosage of 70mg. Listen to your body and adjust the dose as required.

“How soon CBD  and CBD oil will work for you will vary from person to person and might even vary from day today depending on how well you have slept, your level of pain and any related anxiety or low mood. Most people report a beneficial effect anytime between 15 to 60 minutes after taking CBD oil drops.”

Is CBD skincare worth it?

In recent years, CBD has become a popular ingredient with beauty brands and their skincare products and has been touted as being a useful serum.  You'll now see it in sunscreens, masks, lip balms, moisturisers, and more.  The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of cannabidiol make it useful in the treatment of skin concerns like inflammation, dryness and free radical damage.  Furthermore, studies indicate that CBD may be effective in treating eczema and psoriasis as well as fighting acne because it reduces sebum production in the skin.

Is CBD skin care safe?

Research on the benefits of CBD oil and skincare is limited, however it is generally regarded as safe for applying topically. According to Dr. Adarsh Mudgil, a certified dermatologist. There is likely no harm in continuing to use a CBD-infused product. All safe and regulated CBD products, including CBD oil and skincare are THC free. 

Is there a difference between hemp and CBD?

CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, but there is a specific process that must be followed, or you will be left with regular hemp. Typically, hemp is processed to yield hemp seed oil, but to obtain CBD, a CO2 extraction must be executed. Terpene can be found in hemp, and it is not present in CBD isolate that is used in i-Cann products. 

Is CBD oil legal in the UK? 


Hemp, indica, and sativa are the three types of cannabis that contain CBD.  The latter two remain illegal in the UK and hemp is the only legal form currently. i-Cann's CBD oil is derived from hemp.  For CBD oil to be legal in the UK, it must contain no THC.
