There are two types of acne; inflammatory and non-inflammatory. If you have, what most of us know, the red swollen blemishes, you have inflammatory acne. Now, there are many different types of inflammatory acne. There is the relatively mild with a few red blemishes. Then there is more serious forms; cystic, nodular, and nodulocystic acne.
CBD research has established that it is affective at treating inflammation. Knowing what we know about CBD, it is not unreasonable to suggest that the use of CBD will help soothe the skin and reduce the appearance of acne breakouts and redness.
Research has also suggested there is a potential of decreasing excess oil production. Data is indicating that this is due to the balancing (homeostasis) effects on the cells.
Scientists have said they need more studies to conclusively confirm these results.
