According to a paper published by Amway researchers in Clinical, Cosmetics and Investigational Dermatology, anecdotal evidence abounds for the therapeutic uses of non-psychotropic cannabidiol (CBD) in skin and health applications. However, clinical efficacy and underlying mechanisms of action have yet to be identified and confirmed.

As such, the authors reviewed the latest tangible evidence in the literature (as of the paper’s publication on Dec. 8, 2020) related to 12 application areas for CBD. They considered emerging evidence as well as conflicting and/or plausible findings in each area; following is an editorialized overview with select examples from the review. See the full open access paper for more details.

This high–dose balm seems to be a crowd favorite, certainly in my household. The jar itself contains two ounces of product. It doesn’t seem like much—But because the consistency of the cream is particularly smooth and spreadable, it glides easily onto the skin and covers more real estate. In terms of relief, you can expect gradual relaxation of the muscles—especially if you’re prone to spasms or simply incredibly tight.

“I have treated many patients with chronic conditions with full spectrum CBD and attained great results,” Dr. Amin says. “I also believe the public needs to understand that CBD works in conjunction with THC. Usually this requires at least 3–5% THC to work for serious forms of pain and more chronic medical conditions. I have patients come in with chronic and severe pain expecting to have their pain alleviated with just CBD. Although CBD works well for pain, in many situations patients with severe pain need to have some THC. [The cannabinoids] work synergistically to help ease severe pain.”

Here’s what I have found most effective over the years.

Now this is where we change course. Serious athletes and people suffering from chronic pain will benefit from this lotion. And yes, it’s in a jar but it rubs on like an incredibly light lotion—not at all like a heavy body butter. The main difference is that it contains both THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in addition to CBD. And that’s a good thing. Both cannabinoids work synergistically together: THC will open up your receptors, enabling your body to absorb and metabolize more CBD. Beyond that, Glow is applied somewhat differently than the rest of the products on this list. Apply a minuscule amount to your pulse points, the insides of your elbows, and the backs of your knees—areas where the skin is at its thinnest. The reasoning: Because of its formula and consistency, your body will absorb the product so that it reaches your bloodstream—unlike many other topicals.

One thing to note, though: Only buy from established brands from licensed dispensaries—not random bodegas, sketchy websites, so-called health food stores, or even Amazon. Always ask for COAs (Certificates of Analysis) to ensure that the topical actually contains the cannabinoids it claims to have. And have an open mind about using CBD topicals incorporated with THC—because those two cannabinoids combined are more effective when addressing inflammation, which is the primary cause of soreness and pain.

Baskin has a lower–dose formula that clocks in at 150mg CBD that costs $20 less. But I say, Go big or go home. Invest in the higher dose if you want real relief all over: It’s meant to be used all over the body versus its cousin, which was specifically created for smaller targeted areas. Beyond that, you can always use the 400mg cream the way you see fit: Nobody is going to stop you if you want to use it only in specific pain points.

So recovery is a big deal. And personally, I’m all about CBD (a.k.a cannabidiol)—the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis. It’s been having a moment these past few years, making appearances in all sorts of wellness and beauty products—from CBD edibles, to capsules, to transdermal patches, and beyond. But make no mistake. It’s not the passing health trend that activated charcoal and golden milk used to be.

“CBD is extremely anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective. A normal person may use it to prevent conditions such as arthritis or even topically to prevent acne breakouts,” Dr. Shivani Amin, a physician and cannabis expert who is a member of the AMMPA (American Medical Marijuana Physicians Association), says. “I think CBD shows great promise for the future. It all boils down to educating the public about the correct usage and understanding the plant better.”

I’ve long been a fan of edibles and tinctures, but for those who are skeptical of ingesting it, I’m also a big believer in topicals. From lotions and creams to balms and bath bombs, I have experimented with many different kinds—and I’ve come to rely on them for localized pain and reducing inflammation.

Skin care continues to perform very well in the current cosmetics and personal care marketplace. And, according to recent insights from the data science company SPATE, ‘glowing’ is the skin care claim with the second highest number of monthly searches (ranking just below ‘moisturizing’).

A Google search for ‘Glow Skin Care Products’ returns (among other links) a Sephora page​ that let’s consumers “browse the top-ranked list of Glow Skin Care Products…along with associated reviews and opinions.” ​And that page lists skin care items such as the FreshFace Instant Glow Luminizer from LVMH brand Fresh, D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops from Shiseido brand Drunk Elephant, the PHAT Glow Facial Mast from Kendo-owned OleHenriksen, Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 from SuperGoop!, and more.

Amway launches a glow skin care line with Artistry Studio Skin

Now, Amway’s beauty brand Artistry is ready to compete in the glow skin market.“What I love most about Artistry Studio Skin is that it’s a line that can adapt to your pace and glows with you, wherever you are,”​ says Kelli Templeton, Chief Marketing Officer, Amway North America.
