While weed is most popular for smoking and vaporing, it is gaining popularity in the beauty industry as well, especially clothing and cosmetics, thanks to women. Scientists have found out that cannabis can be used to make effective and harm-free beauty products, which have reportedly led to various health benefits. Cannabis is best grown naturally, in greenhouses or out in the yard. The hemp of the cannabis plant is industrially used to manufacture eco-friendly beauty products.
Legality of Cannabis Beauty Products
Cannabis has had legality issues ever since it was discovered. However, while smoking weed has faced consistent resistance in legalizing it, hemp beauty products, on the other hand, although very slowly, have had a rather smoother ride in comparison. The legality of the products has been rising in most states in the U.S.
According to the Agricultural Act of 2014, industrial hemp farming was legalized as long as the cannabis maintained a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) level of 0.3%. That level of THC does not give the high effect of weed, but it still maintains all other health benefits. The government acceptance of hemp products has promoted acceptance of commercial cannabis products by the public.
