Does CBD Help Treat Acne?


Just about everyone that has gone through their teenage years has experienced acne at one point or another. For the few that haven't, congratulations for winning the genetic lottery. I know I had my fair share of acne growing up, and even at the age of 33, I still get acne from time to time. I have tried many things to get rid of it, with varying levels of success. A new study was released that suggests that CBD can help treat acne. Per The Joint Blog:

CBD Users Use Less Pain Pills

A study published recently in the Journal of Clinical Investigation and the National Institute of Health has found that the cannabis compound cannabidiol, often referred to simply as CBD, may provide a potential treatment for acne.

The study concludes; "Collectively, our findings suggest that, due to the combined lipostatic, antiproliferative, and antiinflammatory effects, CBD has potential as a promising therapeutic agent for the treatment of acne vulgaris."

CBD never ceases to amaze me. While I don't like CBD-only legislation, I do very much support CBD in general. It is a very versatile cannabinoid that I think should be legal in every state, especially because it doesn't induce euphoria like it's fellow cannabinoid THC. If you suffer from acne, and you can get your hands on CBD oil, I encourage you to give it a try and post in the comments if it worked for you or not so that others can benefit from your experience.
