Ahhh ACNE: because smooth, blemish-free skin was never gonna be as interesting to look at as bottomless craters and oozing pustules… amaright, Dr Pimple Popper?
Acne Vulgaris is the world’s most common skin disease, and all things considered, it is indeed baffling that despite claiming the skin – and often the social lives – of many a person, the medical community is yet to find an indisputable, cure-all solution.
So, let’s talk zits.
Acne occurs when we overproduce sebum, and hair follicles get clogged up with the excess oil and dead skin cells. But GOOD NEWS! A bunch of really cool studies have shown that CBD can help regulate the body’s endocannabinoid system so that we don’t produce as much sebum.
The endo.. what?
The endocannabinoid system helps fine-tune and maintain our internal physiological conditions steady, like sleep, appetite, pain, memory and even sexy time, and in the case of our skin, the endocannabinoid system helps with skin growth and sebum production.
The CBD connection
Studies have shown that CBD helps inhibit the excessive production of all that white gunk, by giving a chill pill to those overactive sebum receptors, so your skin can live happily ever after. So… ya kno. Coupla sublingual drops here, coupla softgels there… and abracadabra, skin could be as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
