01 Mar Is CBD good for acne?
Despite being one of the most widespread skin conditions, acne is also one of the most poorly understood. There are many myths and misconceptions about its causes, such as: poor diet, poor hygiene and hormonal imbalance. And its treatments, such as: sun-beds, saunas and squeezing spots and blackheads is the best way to treat or get rid of it. So far, research has not found any of these to be true since the biological reactions that trigger acne occur under the skin. So cleanliness is not a factor, squeezing will cause scarring and UV rays increase the risk of skin cancer. Within the various oral and topical treatments no one remedy has yet been found to totally heal acne.
A recent clinical study published by The American Society of Clinical Investigation has found CBD to help in the treatment of acne because of its anti-inflammatory properties and the ability of CBD to bind to our Endocannabinoid receptors.
“our findings suggest that, due to the combined lipostatic, antiproliferative, and anti-inflammatory effects, CBD has potential as a promising therapeutic agent for the treatment of acne vulgaris.”
