Scott Shannon, MD, assistant clinical professor at the University of Colorado, recently sifted through patient charts from his four-doctor practice to document CBD’s effects on anxiety. His study, as yet unpublished, found “a fairly rapid decrease in anxiety scores that appears to persist for months,” he says. But he says he can’t discount a placebo effect, especially since “there’s a lot of hype right now.”
Overall, your skin experiences plenty of stress and damage throughout the day. It’s just natural. It’s the organ that’s keeping your body all together and protects you from free radicals in the air of your environment. Opting for a CBD lotion, even on your best days, gives your skin an extra boost. It can reinvigorate skin that’s dull and dry, and it can be especially useful after a day in the sun or a long trip.
