CANNABIS IN COSMETICS
The body has CB1 and CB2 receptors which are related to endocannabinoids, molecules produced naturally by the body. Bound to these receptors are cannabinoids, which are naturally produced by cannabis plants (phytocannabinoids). Several studies document the presence of CB1 R receptors in the skin. These cannabinoids and their relationship to receptors have been linked to the treatment of skin aging, differentiation of keratinocytes, acne, seborrhea, eczema, psoriasis, and other inflammatory skin diseases (Kupczyk et al. 2009; Eagleston et al. 2018). Likewise, the metabolism of CBD1 receptors in the skin influences epidermal differentiation and skin development. The lack of balance in these receptors can lead to aging, dryness, eczema and psoriasis problems (Kupczyk et al., 2009; Eagleston et al. 2018). Kuida products contain CBD, a phytocannabinoid that contributes to maintaining the balance of the skin preventing these conditions (anti-aging, dryness).
