Most of us associate weed with the feelings of inexplicable creativity and relaxation it gives us (or paranoia depending on your life), but what about the potential beauty benefits of hemp and THC?! Perhaps linked to the influx of legalization, the past few years have brought a growing trend in weed beauty products, which naturally sparked our curiosity (and our one-hitter).
It only takes a few minutes of combing through the intersecting worlds of marijuana and beauty to confirm that there is a generous selection of weed-themed beauty gifts you can lather on your face and body to achieve the glowing aura of someone who feels at peace with the world.
An injection of weed in our beauty routine may be exactly what the doctor ordered since recent studies show that stress is on the rise in America. But what exactly do these products do — are there lotions that will get us high? It looks like getting stoned off serums might still be a vision of the future. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t an impressive amount of creative weed skin care products out in the wild.
We gathered a few of the most popular weed-infused beauty products on the market to see what’s out there, how they work, and what gets us blazed up (SORRY).
