First Things First—What Exactly is CBD Oil?
You didn’t think we were going to throw you into the CBD world without giving you a little intro first, did you? You know we’ve got your back better than that! Before we dive deep into some CBD Oil benefits, let’s chit-chat about CBD in general.
CBD oil. It seems like a mystery, right? But it’s not! It’s a totally up-and-coming on the rise beauty product that’s claiming all the glow-up benefits in the world. But what exactly is it?
CBD oil is the short way to say cannabidiol, which is one of the naturally-occurring compounds (known as cannabinoids) that are found in (and extracted from) the cannabis sativa plant.
While you’re probably not familiar with all of the cannabinoids that can be extracted from this plant, you likely have heard about two before— CBD and THC. CBD is a compound taken from the cannabis sativa plant that does not get you high. Instead, CBD is said to be therapeutic for your body and mind, as well as great for your beauty routine. CBD claims to have a lot of benefits, which we encourage you to read up on if you plan on incorporating it into your beauty or wellness routine. Whereas, THC is that one that gets you a little bit silly.

Let’s Talk Benefits—How You Can Implement CBD Oil in Clients’ Beauty Routines (And Yours!)
If you’ve glanced online at beauty products lately, you’ve probably noticed the word CBD in, well, everything. CBD is such a craze right now—so much so that you can’t find a lip balm or chocolate bar or a face wash that’s not touting the CBD oil benefits.
But, there’s a reason for that—CBD actually contains a lot of nutrients, vitamins, and overall helpful stuff that can truly boost your beauty routine. How you ask? Do we have a treat for you!
CBD Skin Care Benefits
The CBD skin care benefits could be talked about for hours, but for brevity’s sake, we’re just going to run through some of the reasons that CBD is so great for skin care.
- CBD oil is said to be super anti-inflammatory as well as pain-killing (called analgesic). Which means that issues like psoriasis and dry skin could potentially be treated with CBD serums, oils, or creams! Anti-inflammatory properties are also said to help reduce signs of aging, like wrinkles!
- CBD contains vitamins A, C, and E—all of which help to keep your skin healthy and firm, stimulate collagen, and even aid in hydration (which is huge for anti-aging).
- CBD is said to help balance your hormones, which helps to manage your skin—it’s also supposedly a great treatment for skin that overproduces sebum without drying skin out.
CBD Hair Benefits
There’s plenty of CBD hair products out there, too—and while they’re not all created equally, if they contain CBD oil, they’re likely going to help make your hair stronger, fuller, and healthier.
- CBD has high levels of fatty acids like omega-3,-6, and -9, which means it is STELLAR for hair growth. Want bushier brows? Longer lashes? Thicker hair? CBD Could be your ticket.
- CBD has all 21 of the amino acids (well, all the ones we know about, anyway)—those bad boys help to strengthen your hair (as well as build up the collagen and the elastin in your strands). It even has an amino acid that can help you maintain color, too.
- CBD is so, so good for your scalp. It’s said to boost your circulation and get rid of that troublesome dandruff!
CBD Makeup Benefits & Products
We already talked about the skin benefits that CBD oil products can have, so a lot of people choose to double up and throw on some CBD oil makeup, too. Why the heck not, right? Refer back to those omega fatty acids we were talking about as well as all those vitamins and nutrients—now try to picture that sweet CBD oil glow you’ll have!
Anxiety + Overall Wellness
CBD is also said to be a great resource for soothing anxiety and promoting healthy sleep habits—which, hello, are HUGELY important for beauty routines. Whether it’s popping a (legal) CBD oil pill, lighting a CBD oil candle, or dropping a little CBD oil in your tea, this could be a great way to help reduce your anxiety in a snap!
How Should I Explain CBD Oil Products to My Clients?
Our very best advice is to do as much research as you can and try out the products you want to recommend to your clients. You’d likely do this with any other product you want your client to use, right? So, that aspect is no different.
The real challenge might come with explaining CBD to your client. And that’s okay, it’s sort of a convoluted topic—there are so many questions out there about CBD, if it’s legal, and how to use it, and honestly, there are a lot of confusing answers, too.
Obviously, ensure that the CBD oil products you’re recommending to your clients and using yourself are legal (which, is likely, but be sure to check your state’s regulations if you’re using non-hemp-CBD-oil—check out more of that in our CBD FAQs here!)
Above all, we recommend having a thorough grasp on all the common questions—know exactly what CBD is, know how it can help, understand its legalities, read up on its benefits and potential side effects, and more. Of course, only recommend a CBD oil product if you truly feel your client will benefit—but you’d do that with any product!
