Why would CBD help with Acne?
Research has proven that the endocannabinoid system has receptors throughout the human body, the receptors on our skin are responsible for controlling the balance and general well-being of our skin cells.
The endocannabinoid system has receptors spread throughout our entire body, brain, and central nervous system, influencing various physiological processes.
Research on CBD and the endocannabinoid system (ECS) offers promising results for the treatment of acne. Like the other organs in our body, our sebaceous glands and hair follicles contain CB1 and CB2 receptors.
These receptors work to communicate with the nervous system to produce different effects, such as reduction of inflammation. CBD oil can reduce acne because of its anti-inflammatory properties that may work to reduce the visible inflammation caused by clogged hair follicles. In addition to the anti-inflammatory function, CBD oil may also help treat acne in a number of other ways. When CBD activates the endocannabinoid system, a neurological transmitter regulates cell growth. When this isn’t balanced, it can negatively impact the skin. The ECS has also shown to play a major role in hydrating the skin through the production of lipids. Anandamide appears to significantly enhance lipid production. CBD oil also may help inhibit overactive oil production, which is one of the key causes of acne.
One other benefits of CBD over prescription medications is that it only targets the problem-causing cells, leaving healthy cells alone and reducing side-effects common to many acne medications, such as dry and irritated skin.
