Our skin is the largest organ in or on our body. Like other organs, your skin needs to be taken care of and maintained in order to stay healthy. The newly discovered endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a pretty big role in our skin’s health, and Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural new medication that can change the way you take care of your skin.
What Is CBD?
CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical that is found in industrial hemp as well as other cannabis plants. It acts as a regulator for your ECS, which reaps numerous, almost uncountable, benefits for your body.
CBD is non-psychoactive which means you don’t get the “stoned” feeling while taking it like you would with THC. CBD is also non-addictive and the health risks are lower than the majority of the medications on the market.
CBD and Acne
No matter how old you get, you’ll find pimples popping up here and there from stress or poor eating habits. But there are some people who have to suffer from their entire face breaking out. People with acne may eat correctly and live lives with as little stress as you can, but their high production in lipids keep them from achieving a clean and clear looking face, back, legs, arms, or wherever they are suffering. Cannabidiol can help heal acne by reducing the lipid production, leaving you with clearer skin from CBD.
For people who get pimples from stress, CBD also acts as a fast acting anti-depressant and has even shown that it helps people with anxiety relax. Taking CBD not only regulates your physical health, but your mental health will prosper as well. Reducing your stress and/or depression is a great way to combat pesky pimples.
