Is it just us or is CBD Beauty EVERYWHERE right now? There’s so much to learn, which is why we partnered with Miss Grass on a special episode all about the benefits of cannabis beauty. On the mic we welcome Anna Duckworth and Kate Miller, founders of the leading women’s cannabis website that’s been dubbed “The Goop of Cannabis” by W Magazine.   Aside from offering up pink porcelain “Le Pipes”, cannabis-spiked lubes, celebrity-loved gummies and beauty products like CBD-infused face serums, Miss Grass is out to educate with an online magazine. And since they cover topics like: “How I faced my dispensary fear and found serenity,” (#relatable!) we knew we needed to get Anna and Kate’s tips on how they’ve been using cannabis beauty in their own lives to treat symptoms of celiac disease and psoriasis.   If you’re wondering why cannabis beauty might be beneficial in skincare, it’s because cannabidiol and other parts of the plant are known, powerful anti-inflammatories. But let’s be honest, since cannabis has been outlawed for so long, clinical data is only now starting to get underway. In the meantime, it’s the wild west out there – and how’s a girl to shop? Do we really need CBD in our mascaras?
