Acne and CBD

Acne is considered the most common skin condition in the United States and while it is more pronounced in adolescents it can affect anyone at any age. Acne is caused, in part, by inflammation and overworked sebaceous glands on the body. The Journal of Clinical Investigation however found that CBD helps to lower the production of sebum that leads to acne, partly because of its anti-inflammatory effect on the body. CBD also helps reduce anxiety which stops the production of hormones that are inviting to acne. In addition the study also found that the use of CBD helped stop the spread of acne. 

While there is not much emphasis by the medical community at the moment on CBDs anti-acne properties because of the numerous other things CBD can help with, its ability to help fight acne shouldn't be ignored and will continue to be tested.
