What is CBD oil?

CBD oil or Cannabidiol is from the hemp plant and does not produce any  psychoactive effects in the body or brain. There is no sensation of being “high” when taking CBD oil and it is perfectly legal in every state.

CBD is a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids already exist on our bodies so CBD oil will not be a foreign substance to our systems. Cannabinoids and their receptors are found all through our bodies.  They are in the brain, organs, nervous system, and immune cells.

CBD has been used for a variety of medical conditions such as depression,  anxiety, chronic pain, arthritis, migraines, cancer, and more. In addition, it has also been used for skin conditions including acne.

 Acne occurs when your hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells. The plugged follicles then cause whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples and acne.

There are many causes of acne include excess oil production, stress, and hormones, so it’s a tough fight for a lot of people.

How Does CBD Oil for Acne Work?

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.

CBD oil may help in overactive oil production, which is one of the primary causes of acne.

Another big plus of CBD is that it only targets the problem-causing cells, leaving healthy cells alone. This is a great benefit as traditional acne treatments cause dry skin that can create a whole new set of problems.

The most common way to use CBD oil for acne is in a cream, lotion, or mask.  Using it daily can be very beneficial to acne or other skin issues.  Using it periodically is good for maintaining good skin as well. It can be part of anyones good skin care regime even if they do not suffer from acne.  It’s just a great  preventative tool to have in anyone’s arsenal.
