CBD is used to treat skin disorders
IF you suffer from skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis, you may have tried all sorts of creams and remedies, but have you considered CBD oil to treat them?
Read on to find out more about the benefits of CBD oil for treating skin disorders and the range of revolutionary CBD infused skincare products which are now available in Spain.
First of all, what is CBD?
In case you didn’t know, CBD is an abbreviation of Cannabidiol, which is one of more than 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.
Cannabis! Can I get high by using CBD? The answer is no. The main psychoactive component in cannabis is different substance, called Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD on the other hand, is not psychoactive. The oil is extracted from the plant and mixed with other types of oils such as coconut or hemp seed. And yes, don’t worry, it’s totally legal to use.
It provides relief from pain, anxiety and other issues without mind-altering effects of marihuana or the side effects of pharmaceutical products. Creams containing CBD oil are particularly useful in treating psoriasis, rosacea, acne and eczema amongst others.
CBD for treating skin disorders
US Publication Dermatology Times cited Tina Alster, M.D., clinical professor of dermatology at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, DC, as saying that “CBD oil has an anti-inflammatory property, which can benefit the skin, and it can also reduce oil production, provide moisture and relieve pain and itching”.
Anybody who has suffered from skin disorders such as eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis knows that the itchiness from it can become almost unbearable and that scratching it only makes things worse, causing it to spread, making the skin red and blotchy, as well as leading to scabs and more flaking.
All skin types
Dr Alster added that “Topical CBD is safe and works effectively for all skin types” and specifically mentioned its effects on dryness, irritation and redness.
Many people suffering from skin conditions find that they not only cause them discomfort, but also have an effect on their mental wellbeing, as they are not happy with their appearance and this causes a lack of self-confidence, so the fact that CBD is safe for all skin types is great news.
Creams with CBD can calm dry and itchy skin, even for people with sensitive skin, although as with all products, it should be applied first to a small patch of skin to check for any reactions.
Alster went on to say that “CBD-containing creams, oils, gels and serums not only moisturize and soothe the skin but are also showing encouraging results in relieving pain caused by certain skin disorders.”
According to Medical News Today, Eczema affects one to three per cent of adults and creams containing CBD can help to treat it, meaning that they may not need prescription treatments.
Research suggests that CBD oil can kill the Staphylococcus aureus bacterium which can cause people to contract infections with eczema.
It can also be beneficial in treating one of the most common skin conditions, acne, as it works on the skin cells which create sebum stopping them from creating too much, as well as having antibacterial and antifungal properties which could prevent not only acne infections but also scarring.
