Cannabis has anti-ageing and skin-protective properties, according to New York dermatologist Dr Bobby Buka.
Theres just one problem you cant smoke it, because the hydrocarbons in smoke wreck the collagen in your skin.
Hence firms are looking to dream up lotions and potions which will deliver the herb safely into your skin.
