Like that scene in Scarface, but less expensive, no cocaine, and you know, no killing.

Harsh truth time: smoking is not good for your skin. This doesn’t really have anything to do with weed personally, it’s more the method. Smoking causes combustion and that leads to free radicals and carcinogens which are harmful to your skin.

But all is not lost! It’s time to take advice from that weird friend named Cody that wore way too much hemp and said weed solved every problem. Mother fricking Cody was right. I can hear him now, whispering with his eyes half-closed, “just put some weed on it”. That’s exactly what people are doing with their skin and the results are pretty cray.

According to a study done by the National Academy of Sciences, using cannabinoid CBD oil beats out Vitamins E and C as a powerful antioxidant. Using antioxidants on your face help fight aging (hells ya). There was even a study done on mice in 2003 that found that using cannabinoids on skin causes cancer cells to die. Using cannabinoids topically can also treat dry skin, eczema, and rashes due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
