I Put Weed Serum on My Face Every Day for A Week, & Here’s What Happened

There is a new “it” drug on the market with incredible benefits. Plot twist: It’s extracted from Cannabis. Double plot twist: It doesn’t get you high.

Say hello to CBD, or Cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive part of the Cannabis plant. This feisty little compound is being credited for everything from easing aches and pains to treating general anxiety disorders to helping insomniacs get a restful night’s sleep. CBD is even being studied for use in cancer treatment plans. CBD for president!

Lucky for me, CBD is also being tapped by the skincare industry for its incredible anti-aging effects, so I was beyond excited to learn about Hora Skin Care’s Super Serum + CBD.

Hora’s ~silky elixir~ combines all of your favorite skin-mending ingredients like marine collagen, argan oil, rosehip oil, and—you guessed it—CBD, into one end-all serum that can help reverse even the most ravaging effects of aging. According to Hora Skin, "Cannabinoid receptors are located throughout the skin, the body’s largest organ, making CBD a potential therapy for a range of conditions, from dry skin to acne. Truly a super ingredient!" I was totally curious, and ready to give it a shot to see if it could live up to this amazing reputation. 

Here’s how it went down.

I decided to test this product for a week. In the morning, I applied a small amount to my face and neck and sealed it with a good SPF moisturizer. At night, I sealed by night cream. Totally simple, and easy enough to swap my usual serum for this one.

Here’s what happened.

After the first day, my skin felt moisturized and protected. A week in, I definitely noticed brighter, more youthful look around my eyes and forehead. 🙌 Pro tip: Apply to wet hair after a shower for the ultimate soft and silky finish.

There’s something so delightfully sinful about the thought of rubbing pot into your skin, and I’m totally here for it. Hora Super Serum has definitely been added to my skin care regimen, and CBD is my new drug of choice.
