Our skin is the largest organ in our anatomy. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most neglected. It comes despite it takes the brutal damage from the elements in addition to the dirt, and grime that we come in contact with throughout our lives. However, taking care of your skin means much more than just bathing regularly, and for some, it is essential as they suffer from one of many different common skin conditions that affect millions of people today. The most prevalent skin issues faced by people today are psoriasis, eczema, and acne. This is where CBD products come in.
- An estimated 50 million individuals are affected by Acne annually
- One in every ten individuals experience eczema according to the National Eczema Association
- Psoriasis is experienced by roughly 2% of the entire American population each year
According to studies, 1/3 of all eczema patients spent as much as 3 hours each day treating the condition. We want to look and feel our best, and when we don’t, it takes a toll on us not just physically but also mentally and psychologically. This is why the skincare market globally was worth almost $135 billion in 2018.
According to statistics from LoudCloudHealth.com, 48% of millennials say they would purchase products with CBD oil for skincare, and 18% of millennials already regularly purchase hair care products with the active ingredient. CBD was also one of the most significant growing health and beauty trends in 2018 and for a good reason. CBD has been scientifically proven to potentially be helpful with all three of the most prevalent skincare conditions faced by patients today.
Let’s take a closer look at how CBD products such as our Gold Serum CBD skincare product may work with our body’s endocannabinoid system to help provide relief!
The ECS and Its Role in Treating Skin Conditions
The Endocannabinoid System or ECS for short is an endogenous body system found in that of each mammal known to man. It plays a significant role in the overall state of our health as it is responsible for helping our body to reach and maintain a state of homeostasis naturally. It affects everything from synaptic plasticity and nervous system development to psychological and physical responses.
This system is made up of cannabinoid receptors. It works directly with endogenous cannabinoids such as Anandamide, phytocannabinoids such as THC and CBD, cannabinoid receptors, respectively called the CB1 and CB2 receptors, enzymes, and cannabinoid antagonists.
How CBD Specifically Works to Help Common Skin Conditions
CB1 receptors are primarily found in the central nervous system. However, CB2 receptors are more prevalent in the skin and immune cells. It is through these receptors that cannabinoids such as CBD may help with skin conditions such as those mentioned above. They do so through what the medical community calls the cutaneous endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for skin cell differentiation, proliferation, and immune competence.
As it has been previously pointed out by many, it only makes sense that without this system being nourished by cannabinoids, it could essentially become deficient and result in damage or disease. The ECS naturally produces endocannabinoids known as Anandamide and 2-AG through hair follicles, sebaceous glands, and the epidermis in response to deficiency, however, sometimes this is not enough. This is where products such as our Gold Serum made from full spectrum whole plant hemp come in to play. Where the body may be lacking, nature provides.
Don’t just take our word for it, here is what the science is saying about CBD for skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis!
- Acne: Cannabidiol exerts sebostatic and antiinflammatory effects on human sebocytes
- Eczema: A therapeutic effect of CBD-enriched ointment in inflammatory skin diseases and cutaneous scars
- Psoriasis: Cannabinoids inhibit human keratinocyte proliferation through a non-CB1/CB2 mechanism and have a potential therapeutic value in the treatment of psoriasis
