Acne is a common skin condition that affects more about 10% of the population .

It is thought to be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, bacteria, underlying inflammation and the overproduction of sebum, an oily secretion made by sebaceous glands in the skin .

Based on recent scientific studies, CBD oil may help treat acne due to its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reduce sebum production.

One test-tube study found that CBD oil prevented sebaceous gland cells from secreting excessive sebum, exerted anti-inflammatory actions and prevented the activation of “pro-acne” agents like inflammatory cytokines .

Another study had similar findings, concluding that CBD may be an efficient and safe way to treat acne and psoriasis, thanks in part to its remarkable anti-inflammatory qualities.

Though these results are promising, more human studies exploring the effects of CBD on acne are needed.

CBD may have beneficial effects on acne due to its anti-inflammatory qualities and its ability to control the overproduction of sebum from the sebaceous glands.
