Pimples and acne come in different levels of severity, from small blemishes to cystic acne. Thankfully, there are many solutions for blemishes. Unfortunately, not all of them work. It can take trial and error to find the products that are right for your situation. Trial and error can be a burden in your life and on your wallet. 

If you struggle with blemishes, you probably already know how costly going through different products can be. People suffering are usually looking for the perfect product that will nourish their face while combating their pimples. One reason why CBD has become a popular ingredient in beauty and acne products is that CBD has been reported to help reduce blemishes.

Recently, with the rise of CBD, people are becoming more aware of the many reported health and wellness benefits. CBD stands for cannabinol, which is the non-intoxicating property found in hemp and cannabis. It is great for numerous ailments and conditions, one of which is acne.

What Causes Acne?

There are many causes of acne. Some of the causes range from genetics to simply just not maintaining good facial hygiene.

In an article from, Medical News Today they state that “Human skin has pores that connect to oil glands under the skin. Follicles connect the glands to the pores. Follicles are small sacs that produce and secrete liquid.

The glands produce an oily liquid called sebum. Sebum carries dead skin cells through the follicles to the surface of the skin. A small hair grows through the follicle out of the skin.

Pimples grow when these follicles get blocked, and oil builds up under the skin.

Skin cells, sebum, and hair can clump together into a plug. This plug gets infected with bacteria, and swelling results. A pimple starts to develop when the plug begins to break down.

Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is the name of the bacteria that live on the skin and contributes to the infection of pimples.

Research suggests that the severity and frequency of acne depend on the strain of bacteria. Not all acne bacteria trigger pimples. One strain helps to keep the skin pimple-free.”

Why CBD Works for Acne? 

One of the reasons CBD has been reported to be an effective solution for combatting acne is because of the anti-inflammatory properties it contains.

In a  study led by the, Journal of Clinical Investigation and the National Institute on Health they found that “CBD also offered antiproliferative effects (making it able to stop the spread of cells) and skin regenerating properties.

The study based its theory on the use of CBD on sebaceous glands (these glands secrete oily sebum, which obstructs pores). The experiment found that CBD acted as a sebostatic agent, giving it the ability to reduce sebum and, in the process, acne.

Research conducted by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology uncovered similar findings: cannabinoids are responsible for lipid products and, ultimately, helping the skin regulate itself against dryness and blemish.”
