CBD for Acne: Does It Work?

If you are one of the roughly 10%, 9.4% to be exact, of the global population that deals with acne you know that teenagers aren’t the only segment of the population that deals with acne.1

While acne is associated with one of the developmental stages of life and sort of a passage into adulthood, acne can have a mental toll not only on adolescence but also on people as they age. Maybe you are someone that had severe acne which possibly led to you being shy as a kid, which is a trait that stayed with you as you became an adult.

Or maybe you were somewhat lucky and only got acne once in a while in your youth, but when you did, your self-awareness rocketed during this time, and you became an introvert until your acne blemish cleared.

Whichever side you reside on, many of us have dealt with acne at one time or another.

CBD Oil for Dementia

CBD has entered the mainstream within the last half-decade or so. This is attributed not only to a limited amount of research that shows it may provide health benefits for medical conditions such as anxiety, arthritis, insomnia, and inflammation but also due to the anecdotal evidence that many people have discovered from using CBD.

While people have found that CBD may benefit their conditions, additional research is needed to understand why CBD may provide these benefits, along with knowing what the short and long-term efficacy of utilizing CBD may provide.

The 2018 Farm Bill legalized growing hemp, and while this has allowed the CBD industry to explode, the industry is in somewhat of a gray area when it comes to the FDA and regulation.

Although, there have been numerous studies completed many more are needed, including potential benefits that CBD oil may provide for Dementia.

In this article, CBD School will explain what Dementia is, and what is currently known about the benefits CBD may provide for those who are suffering from this debilitating disease.

So you’re new to the world of CBD and are interested in trying CBD oil but are a bit apprehensive because you may have heard that the taste isn’t great.

Well, first there’s nothing to worry about. While CBD comes from the cannabis plant, most associate it with marijuana smells which are pretty potent, similar to the spray a skunk gives off when it is fearful, CBD oil doesn’t taste like a smelly skunk.

How to Use CBD Shatter

CBD shatter is a category that is growing within the CBD industry. This could be due to THC-based shatter having its moment of popularity, and naturally, brands see the success and decide to incorporate it into their business model.

Whatever the case may be, the consumer is seeing more and more brands offering CBD strains that are made into CBD shatter for the end user to enjoy, and for that we at CBD School are thankful.

While CBD shatter falls under the umbrella of controversy because the user needs to inhale it into their lungs, which we all know has risks involved, the once very niche market is gaining steam, and quickly.

What is CBD Shatter?

CBD shatter is a bi-product of CBD isolates. It contains 99.9% CBD with only very minute traces of any other cannabinoid or any other part of the hemp plant.

Due to shatter needing a solvent to be extracted, usually butane, it is dangerous to make without the necessary equipment or knowledge and you shouldn’t attempt to make it at home.

Do You Need a Prescription For CBD Oil?

Cannabis in general, and CBD specifically is one of the quickest growing industries currently. Ever since the Farm Bill passed in 2018 it seems like the floodgates opened for brands to begin producing CBD products ad nauseam.

Interested in smoking your CBD? Great you have the option of CBD vaporizers, CBD cigarettes, CBD flower, and CBD wax.

Would you prefer to eat your CBD? No problem, grab a bag of CBD gummies, or CBD chocolate.

Want to melt your aches and pains away? Throw a CBD bath bomb into your bath and add water. Or maybe you want to rub some CBD topicals on your skin after your Saturday morning yoga class.

This is literally just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to CBD products, and weekly it seems like another brand introduces another way to enjoy CBD or another cannabinoid-infused product.

Green Unicorn Farms CBD Review

Slowly carving its niche within the CBD industry, Green Unicorn Farms, is becoming a player amongst the larger brands.

While they don’t put their hands in the dirt to physically grow the hemp plants that are packaged for their products, they carefully curate everything else that the brand touches.

This includes working with the farmers in selecting what strains they would like to incorporate into their product line, which includes CBD hemp flower, CBD prerolls, CBD tinctures, CBD gummies, and CBD topicals.

CBD School was lucky to be one of the first CBD information sites that were able to test a whole bunch of products around the time the brand launched at the end of 2019.

Over the years there have been a bunch of CBD flower-first CBD brands that have launched, tapping a market that was originally overlooked within the CBD industry as it began to grow. Nowadays, this niche of the market is exploding, and Green Unicorn Farms looks to capitalize on what they see as a gap within the market of more affordable CBD flower products, while also offering the more traditional CBD products like tinctures, gummies, and topicals.

Extract Labs Brand Review

Extract Labs and their CBD products have made it to the list of INC. magazine’s list of America’s Fastest-Growing companies. Not too shabby for a small CBD brand that was started in 2016 by an ex-Army officer in a corner of his garage.

If you read CEO Craig Henderson’s story you wouldn’t be all that surprised that Extract Labs is on a roll, however.

Twice nominated for a Bronze Star, Henderson received an ARCOM with Valor award while serving in Iraq. After his military duty, Henderson went on to earn his Master’s of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in thermal sciences and renewable energy.

Having worked sales for a CO2 extraction company, conducting cannabis-related research and development, Henderson had a front seat for what has become somewhat of a CBD boom.

While his path makes for a great brand story, does one man’s vision of “making products that everyone could try” deliver?
