By Melena Gurganus

As CBD makes its way into various beauty products and skin care creams, the cannabis extract has proven to be a quickly-growing trend among the beauty community. Known for its antioxidant and inflammatory properties, new players are popping up in the CBD beauty market and many people are curious to learn where they can purchase CBD lotions, creams, bath salts, and other lifestyle products.

We rounded up 12 brands that have pioneered their own CBD-infused beauty and skin care products, highlighting our favorites from each of these leaders in the Canna beauty industry.

Kush Queen

Best CBD Bath Bombs
Packed with a large selection of CBD-infused beauty products, Kush Queen stands out as a female-focused cannabis lifestyle brand dedicated to enhancing the wellness of their customers. Since its founding in 2015, the company has developed a myriad of hemp CBD skincare and beauty offerings, ranging from CBD bath bombs and infused shower gels, to pain relief lotions and CBD lube. All of the products sold on Kush Queen’s website contain 0% THC, and are available for shipping nationwide.

Lord Jones

Best Pain Relieving Lotion
Made famous by celebrities like Olivia Wilde and Busy Philipps, Lord Jones is a wellness brand that features CBD lotions aimed towards pain relief, as well as CBD confections and tinctures. The beauty mecca, Sephora, has even taken notice of the lotion’s popularity, and added it to their inventory as the first CBD product available from the global retailer. Lord Jones’ lotion contains full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD without THC, and promotes restoration and moisturization of skin.

CBD for Life

Best CBD Shampoo and Conditioner
A buzz-worthy brand commonly featured within the cannabis beauty industry, CBD for Life has been manufacturing and selling CBD-infused beauty products since February of 2015. At CBD for Life, essential oils and other beneficial ingredients are combined with hemp extracts to produce rejuvenating natural beauty products, in addition to their pain relief and anti-inflammatory options. Customers can find everything from CBD shampoo and conditioner, to eye cream and massage lotion on CBD for Life’s website, and their prices are noticeably less costly than many other brands.


Best CBD Lip Butter
Focused on the development of natural skincare and beauty products, Vertly carefully selects their ingredients based on therapeutic benefit. This brand likes to think of CBD as a vitamin or supplement that can help balance and nourish the skin. They currently offer two products, hemp infused relief lotion or lip balm, both containing CBD paired alongside other herbal extracts like shea butter and arnica flower. Their new product, CBD-infused bath salts, are also available for pre-order.


Best CBD Eye Gel
As a luxury skincare brand, Cannaceuticals CB7 products are formulated with micro-encapsulation, meaning the CBD will have a controlled release on the skin’s surface. The name CB7 is based off seven different CBD-infused skincare products within the line, including: a facial cleanser, regenerating serum, rejuvenating cream, night cream, eye and lip gel, enzyme mask, and toner. You can purchase each of these products individually, or select a bundle option that contains the complete luxury skincare regimen.

Mirai Clinical

Best CBD Oil Balm
While this beauty brand isn’t exclusive to CBD, Mirai Clinical is based on the holistic practice that “less is more” and offers two CBD-infused products worth mentioning. First, their CBD oil balm contains 150 mgs of CBD in a 60 mL container, designed to soothe muscles and alleviate joint pain. The brand also sells CBD bath bombs that have 35 mgs of CBD in each, and come in three different scents: lavender, eucalyptus, and lemongrass.

Cannabliss Organic

Best CBD Foaming Cleanser
Devoted to creating natural beauty products that promote healing benefits, Cannabliss Organic skincare incorporates rich hemp oil into all of their products. This brand believes in a holistic approach to life and skincare, so they only use natural ingredients and hemp oil (or CBD oil) that’s free of solvents and pesticides. Cannabliss Organic offers a range of products, like serums, lotions, lip balms, salves, body oils, and cleansers that are vegan, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free.

Sagely Naturals

Best CBD Roll-Ons
Created by two daughters who wanted to alleviate their mothers’ aches and pains, Kaley and Kerrigan formed Sagely Naturals out of Santa Monica, California. With the help of PhD chemists and premium hemp extracts, Sagely has produced two different product lines that are free of sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrances, and artificial dyes. The brand’s Relief + Recovery line is geared towards pain and inflammation, while the Tranquility products address stress and anxiety. Sagely features CBD-infused creams and unique roll-ons that can be used for headaches or on-the-go stress management.


Best CBD Nourishing Body Cream

Hora Skin Care

Best CBD Facial Serum
Drawn to the anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD, Hora Skin Care has developed two skincare products that combine the cannabis extract with traditional ingredients, like hyaluronic acid or argan oil.

Best CBD Body Serum
Launched in 2016 by Kristi Blustein,
