Acne affects nearly 10% of the population. This common skin condition is caused by a number of factors. Genetics, bacteria, underlying inflammation and the overproduction of sebum all play a part. Sebum is an oily secretion produced by sebaceous glands in the skin. Scientific studies have shown that CBD oil can help treat acne because of its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to lessen sebum production. A test-tube study indicated that CBD oil prevents sebaceous gland cells from secreting excessive sebum, employed anti-inflammatory actions and stopped the activation of inflammatory cytokines. A similar study concluded that CBD is an effective and safe acne treatment due to its outstanding anti-inflammatory qualities. These results are promising. There is reason to be hopeful. However, further studies into the effect of CBD on acne are necessary. CBD might just prove to be the miracle skin treatment nearly ten percent of the population has been searching for. It is an entirely natural remedy that is typically well tolerated and considered safe, with no long-term side-effects. While some people do experience adverse reactions, these are mild and temporary. Most common complaints are diarrhea, change in appetite or weight and fatigue. There’s also the concern that CBD has been known to interact with certain medications. Before tying CBD oil, it’s a good idea to discuss this option with your doctor, especially if you’re taking any medications. You want to avoid potentially harmful interaction. Any medications or supplements that include a ‘grapefruit warning” can be problematic. Both grapefruit and CBD interfere with a group of enzymes that are essential to drug metabolism.
Now, I may have you convinced on the benefits of CBD. However, first you have to grow your own marijuana plants in order to explore these benefits. Please do not start this process if it is not legal in your state.

The first step to growing marijuana is the buying or building a cannabis growing facility. This can be difficult to do, so we will come out with an additional blog soon on this process!
