Recently, more and more cosmetic companies are launching product lines with active ingredients derived from the plant Cannabis sativa, ie industrial hemp. Such is the ingredient CBD (cannabidiol) which is not psychoactive. Studies show that topical application of CBD can significantly reduce skin sensitivity to prevent the appearance and reduce the visibility of signs of skin aging. It has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and soothing properties.
What is the difference between industrial hemp oil, CBD and THC?
CBD oil and industrial hemp oil are obtained from the same plant – Cannabis sativa or industrial hemp, and differ in the method of production, the parts of the plant used and the action.
Hemp seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids and omega 3,6 and 9, and is obtained from the seeds of the hemp plant. This seed does not contain the sedative cannabidiol. Industrial hemp oil is produced from hemp seeds by cold pressing the seeds, similar to sunflower oil, which achieves high yields and obtains a clean, raw and nutritious content from the seeds.
CBD oil is produced from the whole plant Cannabis sativa, where the extraction of flowers and stems, which are rich in cannabidiol, produces a powder that mixes with other carrier oils, such as hemp, olive or coconut. The minimum level of the psychoactive substance THC in the oil should not exceed 0.2%.
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is also found in hemp and it is the most discussed compound. It is psychoactive, and the legal limit of THC in industrial hemp should not exceed 0.2% (concentration that has no effect on the human body), while the level of THC in Indian is about 20%.
According to the manufacturer, Paula’s Choice oil fights the signs of aging, soothes and smoothes the skin and evens out the complexion. Soothes stressful, reactive skin and has anti-aging effects.
The CBD and retinol in this oil complement each other to prevent the signs of aging and reduce the visibility of existing ones. CBD soothes skin that reacts to external stressors, and retinol acts on the signs of aging, giving the skin a younger and smoother look. The oil also contains a mixture of natural squalane and hydrating triglycerides.
Paula’s Choice oil contains cannabidiol (150 mg) obtained from the highest quality parts of industrial hemp plants (proven to have less than 0.2% THC) which is then mixed with nutritious vegetable oils. The second main ingredient is retinol (0.5%), a powerful anti-aging ingredient that regenerates the skin, smoothes wrinkles, has antioxidant properties and reduces the effects of sun damage. It also contains hemp seed oil, which is grown sustainably and is a rich source of omega fatty acids and antioxidants.

I applied a few drops on my face and neck once a day, mostly in the evening after cleansing, toning and exfoliating. Given the oil texture, I had no need to apply additional products after it, so I ended my evening care routine with it. Even during the first days of use, it did not cause any irritation and the skin tolerates it very well. After two weeks of use, I noticed softer and hydrated skin, cleaner pores, lightened complexion, markedly dry areas on the cheeks completely disappeared, and generally healthier and more beautiful looking skin. I believe that the oil is a great choice for those who are just starting to use retinol because CBD will soothe the skin and prevent possible side effects of retinol, and vegetable oils provide hydration to the skin. The scent is herbal and the texture is oily and light green in color.
During the day it is necessary to use high sun protection. The price is high, but a bottle of oil can last a long time, especially if you apply it only in the evening and enough 2-3 drops.
