CBD and Acne


Acne is characterized by the outbreak of pimples, as well as blackheads, whiteheads, and overall greasy skin, that generally appear on the face, larger neck area, and back. These symptoms, whether of genetic, hormonal, or infectious origins, are mainly caused by an excessive secretion of sebum.


Cannabis Sativa-based products have been considered a potential solution to patients suffering from one of the most common skin conditions, that affects millions across the world: acne. In particular, Cannabidiol (CBD) is at the center of some medical studies focused on the role of cannabinoids as treatment for acne, as well as for a range of skin-related afflictions.


From a cosmetology standpoint, CBD is used for its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities. The purchase of CBD-rich ointments and creams generally aim to improve skin quality in general. They often consist in a blend of CBD with many other components ranging from various oils to chemicals.


Besides, the very well-known anti-inflammatory properties of CBD have only been beneficial to the inflammation that often comes with outbreaks. Due to the combined lipostatic, anti-proliferative, and anti-inflammatory effects, CBD has potential as a promising therapeutic agent for the treatment of acne vulgaris.
