Endocannabinoid Skin Tone


Radiant skin is achieved by a multitude of factors, from your skin care regimen to the food you nourish your body with. Your skin is your largest organ and plays an important role in protecting you from environmental toxins, synthesizing a wide array of hormones (including Vitamin D), healing wounds and regenerating skin cells for vibrant skin. So how do we maintain that youthful glow? What system is regulating and reducing skin inflammation? Allow me to introduce you to your endocannabinoid skin tone.

Endocannabinoid Skin Tone

Your endocannabinoid skin tone is essentially what is keeping your skin vibrant and youthful. This system plays an important role in managing inflammation and regulating your skin’s immunity. It does this by regulating levels of inflammation and the communication between immune cells. Protecting your skin from virus, bacteria, fungi and other external factors. Having an even skin tone, blemish free with less fine lines and wrinkles may be up to the efficiency of your endocannabinoid skin tone.

Your skin produces protecting molecules, endocannabinoids, which are constantly being released in specific amounts to maintain the health and integrity of your skin. Endocannabinoids are synthesized by several cell types in the epidermis, hair follicles and sebaceous glands. While ideally this biological system is working efficiently, all to often with an increase in stress, exposure to environmental toxins, hormonal imbalances and an increase in inflammation, our skin is left dehydrated and inflamed.


Cannabidiol (CBD) a compound derived from the Cannabis Sativa Plant is a powerful antioxidant and interacts with the endocannabinoid system of the skin. Clinical research indicates CBD boosts cellular levels of endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are the anti-inflammatory regulatory molecules of the skin which your body is already producing. Supporting your endocannabinoid system in regulating levels of inflammation is an important component in reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

There are many components involved in fueling your endocannabinoid system to perform optimally. With proper nutrition and plant medicine the endocannabinoid system can be fueled to properly regulate levels of inflammation on your skin and throughout your body to achieve wellness.
