It's often said that good skin is a reflection of internal wellness. If that isn't at its peak, not to worry! The answer to your skincare woes is distributed locally and comes in the form of four CBD-infused skincare products from the xCan21 line courtesy of Zimmer+Co.

The purpose of the xCan21 line is to relax the nerves and reveal naturally beautiful skin. According to Zimmer+Co, “Everyone needs CBD.” Under the Dryer (UTD) reveals your locally made marijuana-infused beauty regime.

But first, what is CBD?


Cannabis has been regarded as a major chemical element that's filled with medicinal, healing and therapeutic benefits such as pain, inflammation and nausea relief, treatment for seizures and neurological disorders — in other words, anti-everything that distracts one from taking care of their skin.


The xCan21 line includes a day cream, night cream, body lotion, and nourishing CBD gel, all with a shelf life of 24 months, and is expected to combat acne, moisturise, rejuvenate, enhance skin tone, all while stimulating the natural renewal process, and providing anti-aging properties.


xCan21 and myriad products from the Zimmer+Co pharmaceutical line can be found in several pharmacies and beauty stores islandwide.

Here's what xCan21 users have to say...

“I've been applying the CBD Gel with Squalane to my surgical scar for over two months and there has been noticeable improvement. Firstly, the appearance of the scar is not as raised and that frequent burning sensation I used to experience has lessened with use. I also like that the gel is scentless, so I pretty much apply it and forget it. I am sometimes tempted to think it's mind over matter, but that burning sensation I used to have says otherwise – the flattening of the scar also says otherwise. Strange, this scar is not fresh, yet the gel is working on it. I will continue to use it. I've also been recommending to others.” – Suzette Brown, Jamaica International Beauty Expo coordinator

“The gel works very well for sunburn. I went to the beach and was badly burnt on the forehead and the next day it was reduced and the pain was gone. I also applied it to ingrown hairs and zits and it reduced the inflammation.” – Bradson Longsworth

“I use the day and night cream daily and have been extremely pleased with the results. My skin feels moist without ever feeling oily. It feels tighter and smoother and I love the compliments about the 'glow' it seems to bring to my face. I am very pleased and recommend them highly.” – Joy Clarke, enJoy The Journey founder and chief training officer

“I have been enjoying #CBD skincare for months now. Face well nice and clean. So I was so excited to get these products from #Zimmer+Co as birthday gifts. The day moisturiser is the best I've ever used, mi nah lie!” – Sharon Singh, Rose Hall Developments administrative manager

“I use the products daily and have been extremely pleased with the results. I have tried many different products but have settled with the CBD Skincare line which I have been using for the past few months.”

“Of course I need to use [xCan21] for a longer period to know the full effects and benefits, but looking very good so far. I think I am going to love these products.” — Cecile Levee, interior decorator and entrepreneur
