CBD and clear skin: study shows cannabidiol a highly effective acne treatment
ENFLEUR is pleased to share a study published by the Journal of Clinical Investigation, a peer-reviewed medical journal covering biomedical research, that reports that its data indicates that CBD “a potent ‘universal’ anti-acne agent”. This is because CBD exhibit’s a “triple anti-acne profile”, meaning that it is lipostatic, anti-proliferative, and anti-inflammatory. Because the most effective anti-acne treatment currently available, isotretinoin (sold under the brand names Absorica®, Accutane®, Amnesteem®, Claravis®, Myorisan®, Sotret®, and Zenatane™), has been associated with many undesirable to severe side effects, the study points to CBD as “a promising, cost-effective, and, likely, well-tolerated new strategy for treating acne vulgaris”.
Since CBD is anti-inflammatory, and the natural terpenes present in cannabis also have proven to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, incorporating a high quality, high potency broad or full-spectrum CBD into a daily skin care regime is a worthwhile consideration.
Why does this matter? Study shows CBD to be a “potent universal anti-acne agent” for treating acne vulgaris without the extensive set of possible side effects the current most effective anti-acne treatment.
