What Skin Conditions Can CBD Help With?

CBD and Skin Irritation

One of CBD’s biggest benefits is that it targets the brains pain receptors while also reducing swelling and inflammation, this has lead many to use CBD against things like big bites, scratches, dry skin and other skin irritants. CBD acts as a relaxant and a soothing mechanism helping target skin irritants like rashes, and other more serious skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, also known as the most common type of eczema. Cannabis sativa seed oil also contains a high level of polyunsaturated fatty acids which is known to help with both itching and inflammation a direct issue for those suffering from eczema. The National Eczema Centre claims that “In a human trial for patients with AD, an endocannabinoid cream improved severity of itch and loss of sleep by an average of 60 percent among subjects. Twenty percent of subjects were able to stop their topical immunomodulators, 38 percent ceased using their oral antihistamines, and 33.6 percent no longer felt the need to maintain their topical steroid regimen by the end of the study”

CBD and Acne

Keeping skin lubricated comes down to an oily substance known as sebum, which comes from the sebaceous glands found underneath the skin. This oily substance comes through the hair follicles and comes through the skin via our pores, hair follicles shed dead skin which sebum helps get rid of. When the skin cells build up and too much sebum is released the pores become clogged, resulting in a build up of bacteria which in turn causes inflammation and spots. Cannabis sativa oil is packed with essential fatty acids which is known to provide skin with more hydration, a lacking factor in those who suffer from acne. Cannabis sativa oil also has major antibacterial properties which also helps those with acne which is common factor in contributing to acne. Cannabis sativa oil are also non-comedogenic which means they wont clog pores, contain anti inflammation properties and have an abundance of antioxidants. CBD oil has shown in multiple studies to regulate what is known as lipid production, this helps with dealing with overly oily skin, reducing pore build up and increased amounts of sebum. CBD also helps reduce the appearance of acne on the skin, with its natural anti-inflammatories CBD reduces the swelling and inflammation on the skin, helping ease the redness of the acne spots.

CBD for Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a both a skin disease and a sign of chronic autoimmune disease. Scientists believe that the cause of psoriasis is a disorder in the immune system which accidentally activates the reaction in the skin cells, in turn accelerates the cycle of the skin cells growth. Psoriasis is usually hereditary and passed on from parents to children. Psoriasis produces a dandruff like dry skin feature, commonly found on places like the elbows, knees and edge of the scalp. The anti-inflammatory action found in CBD and its ability to boost the immune system show promising signs of helping relieve psoriasis symptoms. Studies have shown CBD has the ability to inhibit the buildup of dead skin cells which is a rooted cause in psoriasis. Those studies are in the primitive stage, CBD is showing positive signs to helping with psoriasis.

CBD also contributes to increasing fatty acids which helps add to the protective layer and strength of the skin, increasing both skin health and the radiance of the skin.

CBD and Fighting Skin Infections

Multiple studies have shown that CBD contains what is known as antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, which are known to help fight infections. Infections such as cellulitis, boils, impetigo and folliculitis can be helped by the properties that CBD contains. Within some skin diseases there is a bacterium that makes infections difficult to treat known as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MSRA), CBD has shown signs that it can specifically fight this bacterium, whereas most antibiotics cannot. As science evolves so does bacteria, they begin to learn how to fight and become resistant to various antibiotics. CBD is a natural compound that can fight the extra proteins created by an infection like MRSA, when infections create more protein they become stronger and more resistant to man made antibiotics.
