CANNABIS PRODUCTS THAT WON’T GIVE YOU THE MUNCHIES

It’s been a long, strange trip but the pot our hippie forbearers fought to smoke has become mainstream—and part of a growing personal-care scene—but not without confusion. For starters, hemp and marijuana are both variations of the cannabis plant. Hemp-based hair- and skincare products are nothing new, as hemp oil has been used to soothe skin for centuries. (For the record, industrial hemp grown for oil contains no psychoactive compounds.)
