Cannabidiol (or CBD) has taken the healthcare world by storm. It is a member of the cannabinoid family which includes the infamous stoner substance THC. Its multiple benefits for treating insomnia, pain, anxiety, depression, seizures and diabetes have turned the use of the natural plant chemical into the latest therapeutic trend.
The newest application for CBD is in dermatology. Like other cannabinoids, it’s thought to be a key component of normal skin cell chemistry. Cannabidiol containing topicals have the potential to treat a wide variety of skin disorders including dermatitis, boils and cysts, eczema, psoriasis and even skin cancer. Recently it’s been shown that cannabinoids, like CBD, can stabilize sebum, skin oils, and slow down the growth of overactive skin cells that are associated with acne.
In the case of dry skin, CBD may improve sebum secretion, making it a natural skin softener. Its calming and anti-inflammatory properties make CBD the perfect ingredient for soothing irritation associated with skin sensitivities. Perhaps most excitingly, scientists are now looking into the possibility that CBD can slow down skin aging, giving the billion-dollar anti-aging skincare business a possible new ingredient darling. CBD is a powerful antioxidant that reduces inflammation. So, it’s perfect for preventing free radical damage, improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, as well as thinning and sun damaged skin.
