does cbd oil get rid of stretch marks

There's no mistake—CBD is everywhere. You can smoke it, vape it, put drops of it in your tea, and rub it on your stretch marks. I even watched someone buy a CBD drink with their chopped cheese at my local bodega, and that's when I knew this trend was going overboard. Legacy brands like Kiehl's and Josie Maran have hopped onto the trend with infused face oils, while smaller brands like Verte Essentials and Disciple Skincare have gained a loyal following in the booming $350 million CBD industry.

Even though the CBD hype is inescapable, so many people still don't know what it is. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound derived from cannabis plants proven to reduce anxiety, soothe inflammation, and elevate mood. CBD is often conflated with its more stigmatized cousin, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the chemical responsible for that euphoric, stoner high that you get from smoking weed. The cannabidiol used in most beauty products right now are derived from CBD-rich hemp, since the 2018 Farm Bill legalized its production. Cannabidiol won't get you high, but its calming effects can work wonders for the skin. CBD can be derived from any cannabis plant, but it's typically derived from hemp because of its low traces of THC.

Rapid weight gain can occur for a whole host of reasons. Puberty is often the cause. During puberty, hormonal changes can confuse the body’s metabolism and lead to significant weight gain in a short period of time.

Laser treatments utilize the light of highly sensitive lasers to lift the microscopic layers of skin that surround the marks. The idea is that when this procedure is finished, the body creates new layers of healthy skin in place of the original mark. The laser therapy inherently spurs the body into healing the stretch marks itself.

What Causes Stretch Marks?

Prevention is always better than the cure, right? Preventing stretch marks isn’t always easy though. There isn’t any way to prevent growth spurts. We all try to avoid rapid weight gain, but sometimes it happens anyway. And pregnancy is a beautiful time that many women look forward to.

They are scarring on the skin that form in the shape of stripes. It’s impossible to categorically prevent, or rid yourself of stretch marks forever. However, there are steps that you can take to reduce the risk of developing them and help to your existing stretch marks fade.

All four of these events cause the skin to be pulled and stretched. When the skin stretches, it creates marks which look like parallel lines along the skin. The interesting thing about this is that everyone’s marks are different. While some develop them horizontally across their backs, others get vertical marks along their hips, and mothers usually develop them right across the abdomen.
