How Can Cannabis Help With Acne?

How Can Cannabis Help With Acne?

For anyone who is battling acne, you know how hard that battle is. We have a secret weapon – Cannabis. 

Specifically, CBD derived from hemp is very effective in the battle against many types of acne. CBD is an antimicrobial. Meaning it is anti-viral, anti-fungal & anti-bacterial. To create your battle plan it is important to understand what type of acne you have.

Knowing what type of Acne you have is POWER! 

Types of Acne

  • Nodular– this occurs when swollen pores endure further irritation and grow larger. Nodules are deeper underneath the skin, inflamed and painful.
  • Papules– hard, clogged pores that are tender to the touch. The skin around these pores is usually pink.
  • Blackheads– these occur when a pore is clogged by a combination of sebum and dead skin cells. Blackheads are darkened by oxidation, not dirt! The dead cells are exposed to open air that turns them black.
  • Whiteheads– form when a pore gets clogged by oil and dead skin cells. Identifiable by its name, whiteheads appear as pimples with rounded white tops. They frequently appear in areas more prone to oil like the T-Zone.
  • Pustule– an inflamed blemish with an obvious white or yellow head. They’re similar to whiteheads but are distinguished by a more red and inflamed appearance.


Once we understand what assistance you need we will develop a treatment plan to heal your skin.
