Now cannabis cosmetics are a thing

A medicinal cannabis and cosmetics company has won approval to sell its cannabis-based anti-ageing cosmetics in America.

The Israeli company, MGC Pharmaceuticals,  says approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) marks the company's entry into the $US11 billion ($A15 billion) US skin care market.

The company, which has its Australian headquarters in Perth,  is also seeking approval for its cosmetics in Australia and Canada.
