This Cannabis-Based Mascara Uses CBD Instead Of Beeswax

A new makeup brand is looking to shake things up by introducing a line of cannabis-based mascara.

On 4/20, Milk Makeup will be releasing their new Kush Mascara line produced with the cannabis extract CBD. Milk is a vegan company and was looking for something to replace the beeswax often used as the thickening agent in mascaras. That's when they turned to CBD.

And you don't have to worry about your morning routine turning into an accidental wake-and-bake. Unlike THC, CBD won't get you high.

Kush Mascara joins a growing list of cannabis balms and topicals as well as other infused cosmetics and healthcare products. 

But Kush Mascara might actually be a bigger win for the vegan makeup market than for the cannabis industry. As people become more conscious of where their products come from, the market for vegan products will only continue to grow. The addition of another substitute for typically used animal products is a welcome change.

Here's a sneak peak of Kush Mascara.


Ever since recreational cannabis was legalized for adult consumption across Canada in mid-October the industry has been struggling to meet demand. And that's not going to change anytime soon, according to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In a recent interview, Trudeau admitted that the chronic cannabis supply shortages have been the biggest challenge the newly legalized industry has been facing.
