The beauty industry’s obsession with CBD (short for cannabidiol) shows no sign of slowing down.
Hailed as a “miracle cure” in skin and body care, it’s made from the whole sativa cannabis plant, including leaves, stalks, flowers and seeds – with products ranging from rejuvenating eye rollers to soothing bath salt.
With plenty of beauty benefits to be enjoyed, The Wordrobe’s editor Sophie Ritchie shares eight of the best CBD beauty products to try at home this week
