Heal your skin with the powerful antioxidant found inside cannabis
That’s right folks, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)—the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis— is actually an antioxidant. Which means it can help minimize fine lines and fight skin ailments like eczema, psoriasis, and so much more.
THC is one of many chemical compounds known as cannabinoids, found inside the dried resin glands of the beautiful female cannabis flower. In the plant’s raw form, THC is found as an acid. Plants like marijuana produce these secondary metabolites in place of an internal immune system. These potent chemicals help the plant fend off parasites, viruses, bacteria, and other natural predators.
THC even seems to have anti-bacterial properties in humans. Himalayan Hemp Mud contains 25,000 antioxidants and 84 minerals— including traces of THC, Omega 3 and 6, and loads of vitamins (such as C, E and B6). Like most mud masks, it’ll draw out impurities and combat blemishes. However, that is just the beginning of what this miracle product can do for you.
I purchased a jar of this mud on Amazon and I couldn’t be happier with the great results I’ve received. Like many of you, I have sensitive skin and need to be careful about what products I use. What I loved immediately about this product is that it is ALL natural. I don’t just mean simply organic natural ingredients. Himalayan Hemp Mud is raw, vegan, kosher, gluten free, and GMO free. It also is 100% free of any animal testing and is Rainforest Alliance certified.
I used the mud as a traditional face mask first. I had a breakout on my forehead that had been refusing to fall victim to my usual skincare products, and I was doubtful much could help at that point. Well, I was very wrong. After just one 20 minute use of the mud, my breakout faded away overnight and my skin was softer. This stuff is absolutely amazing! It moisturizes and nourishes your skin deeply, while also drawing out toxins and bacteria. I’ve never used any other similar product that is as fast-acting and satisfying as this miraculous Himalayan Hemp Mud.

A little bit goes a long way with this mud, which is great because it is somewhat pricey (Around $34 for 5.2oz jar). Although, I personally think that is a small price to pay considering the fantastic results it gives you. I especially love that you can use the mud anywhere— face, body, bikini area, hands, feet— and it is also used to treat ailments such as bug bites, sunburns, rashes, and more. I was curious to see how well the mud would work on a mosquito bite my friend received while hiking outside. As I suspected— practically instant relief! After 10 minutes the hemp mud shrank the bite and minimized the irritation. He applied one more 20 minute mask on the bite before bedtime and then happily reported that it was gone when he awoke that morning.
So is it the THC that makes this product work wonders? We’d like to think so.
