Acne & Dry Skin Syndrome

Through ongoing clinical research, CBD has been found to help reduce acne as a complementary benefit to its anti-inflammatory properties. A study [J Clin Invest. 2014] found that CBD affects the sebaceous gland, the gland in the skin that controls the secretion of lubricating oily matter (sebum) in which hair follicles get stuck in to create acne. The study found that CBD inhibited the secretion of this oily matter from the sebaceous gland, therefore limiting the possibility of acne formation.

Additionally, the continuation of this study [Exp Dermatol. 2016] found that CBD "exerted complex anti-acne effects by normalizing 'pro-acne agents' while decreasing oil reproduction.” The continuation also studied the anti-inflammatory and acne treatment effects of other Cannabis Sativa compounds, including CBC, CBG, CBGV, CBDV and THCV.

Their data found evidence that CBGV and CBG could be agents for dry-skin syndrome, such as Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea, and CBC, THCV and CBDV show high efficiency as anti- acne agents. Stating that they have high potential for being an acne solution.

Several researchers maintain that CBD offers immense potential in regulating natural skin processes. Besides, the new topically-applied treatments of CBD have already been cleared by the World Health Organization (WHO) as having no potential for abuse or harm, as various clinical trials have marked positive outcomes on the symptoms of Eczema, Psoriasis, and Rosacea.
