Relief: CBD Hemp Oil for Acne?

CBD Hemp Oil Gives Relief For Acne

It is now known and widely accepted that CBD Oil has a wide variety of benefits in its use. Studies have shown that cannabis can help people who struggle with psoriasis or eczema. But how is CBD or hemp oil for acne work? Is it the real deal?

Let’s dive into this question. How does acne affect the population in the U.S.?

There are over 50 million people suffering from acne in the United States each year. This phenomenon, of course, has given rise to many over-the-counter and prescription solutions.

However, those medications often come with a series of side effects.

On top of that, they are usually manufactured using various fairly harsh chemicals. These, in turn, are responsible for skin irritation and other related problems.

Why do conventional treatments lack efficacy?

Many conventional products for the treatment of acne contain chemicals, such as benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. Both of these can potentially do more harm than good. These chemicals don’t just affect the skin with problematic acne, but they also impact surrounding tissues.

This, in turn, results in dryness, irritation, and other forms of damage to otherwise healthy, viable skin.

But what if we could use naturally occurring plant compounds instead of the current traditional approaches of using harsh chemicals and physical abrasion?

Can cannabinoids help in the acne treatment?

Truth to be said, acne is one of the most controversial conditions when it comes to cannabis / CBD treatments. Some skin care professionals claim that cannabis can actually cause an increase in the production of sebum.

However, these claims are supported by the findings of THC which is known to increase the production of oils in the skin. Moreover, THC causes the immediate spike in testosterone levels, which may trigger acne in some individuals.

But how about pure CBD strains and cannabidiol extractions?

CBD & Hemp

Many people have already discovered the skin-care potential of cannabidiol. As a matter of fact, the use of CBD hemp oil for acne is gaining the strong support of both patients and skin care specialists.

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, has been used in numerous medical studies.

Recent findings support its potential ability to treat a variety of skin conditions. This includes all types of acne, a skin condition occurring because of the excessive production of sebum.

While your body produces sebum to provide a protective layer and lubrication on the skin’s surface, its excess settles into deeper layers and clogs pores, resulting in acne, blackheads, and associated inflammation.

The benefits of CBD for skin care

The gland responsible for sebum production (sebaceous gland) contains endocannabinoid receptors. These react to both endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids when you administer CBD topically.

When you use CBD hemp oil for acne, the sebaceous gland slows down, thus slowing the production of lipids that clog pores. This effect occurs more on an internal level after the absorption of CBD versus the common external variety of treatment that takes place merely on a surface level with irritating chemicals.

With the transdermal application, CBD can be absorbed into the affected tissue. The presence of phytocannabinoids in CBD is then detected by the sebaceous gland, which reacts accordingly. This is a vast improvement when we compare CBD to topical products that cleanse the surface area with harsh chemicals. Stripping the skin in order to remove excess oil, instead of preventing it.

The natural lipids found in CBD Hemp Oil do an outstanding job by cleaning impurities from pores without stripping and drying the skin. It binds with the dirt that is trapped in existing sebum, which is then removed when the hemp oil is wiped away. As a result, the use of hemp oil for acne leaves your skin with a much cleaner surface.

Bottom line? It seems that the use of CBD for acne is also safe for the surrounding, acne-free tissue, leaving it unaffected and healthy.

But… Oil? For acne? Seriously?

It sounds a bit counterproductive, but CBD Hemp Oil is extremely low in comedogenic properties. The comedogenic scale is ranked by how likely it is that any specific ingredients, such as oils and kinds of butter used in cosmetic product formulation, will clog pores. Anyone who is susceptible to acne breakouts and blackheads should avoid highly comedogenic oils, as they are likely to cause recurring acne problems. However, people with drier skin might prefer a more emollient oil toward the middle of the scale.

The scale uses a numbering system of 0 to 5. Here’s how the numbers rank on the scale:

0 – won’t clog pores at all

1 – very low likelihood of clogging pores

2 – moderately low likelihood

3 – moderate likelihood

4 – fairly high likelihood

5 – high likelihood of clogging pores

So in other words, CBD Hemp Oil doesn’t clog pores, unlike many other oils. Additionally, hemp oil is a natural humectant (retaining and preserving moisture), which mimics that of human skin and draws moisture directly into the tissue.

This provides moisturizing effects on a much deeper level than traditional products that simply set on top of the skin. For this reason, CBD Hemp Oil is not just ideal for the face, but it works extremely well as a full-body moisturizer. Most of the beneficial effects of CBD and hemp oil for acne and general skin are a result of transdermal application and absorption. But the internal use of CBD Hemp Oil in the form of digestion has positive benefits on your skin as well.

Keep in mind also that CBD Hemp Oil is a good source of vitamin D. Vitamin D isn’t a vitamin at all; it is a hormone! And it is often referred to as “the sunshine vitamin.” However, sun exposure rarely provides adequate vitamin D, making it necessary to obtain it from supplements or your diet.

When ingested, the natural nutrition content found in high-quality CBD Hemp Oil can contribute to stronger, shinier hair. It also improves the health of your nails and makes your skin smoother and more elastic.

Final Result

Acne, while not life-threatening, is an extremely prevalent condition that many people across the world find debilitating. It is often a source of low self-esteem, and can severely impact the quality of an individual’s social life, and the overall satisfaction as a result.

With the success found in the use of CBD Hemp Oil for acne, many people are reclaiming their confidence and leading more socially active lifestyles. We still need more double-blind clinical trials on this subject matter in order not to rely solely on anecdotal evidence and pre-clinical studies. Yet, current findings show promise for further research, and with the cannabis revolution storming the world, we just need to remain patient.

BIOAVAILABILITY OF CBD & WHY IT MATTERS

BioAvailability1

The bioavailability of CBD is a widely discussed subject these days within the CBD arena. There are plenty of factors that decide on the final quality of Cannabidiol goods, from the source of the hemp to the extraction methods to the quality systems in place in manufacturing and third-party lab testing. But in the end, what matters is how much of the CBD your body will absorb.

That being said, it’s no wonder that the bioavailability of CBD is on people’s tongues right now. Once you figure out what the bioavailability of CBD is all about, you will finally get the answer to your question, i.e. “How do we get the most effectiveness out of our CBD?”

The Bioavailability of CBD – What Is It?

oil.jpg

As you may have noticed, CBD comes in many various forms. The list includes lotions, tinctures, oils, balms, e-liquids, capsules, concentrates, and even pet treats. Each of these administration methods requires different usage approach. Moreover, each full-spectrum product typically has a unique concentration of CBD and other cannabinoids.

If you’ve never used CBD or are not familiar with the industry, choosing between all these options can be overwhelming. We understand your confusion and hesitance; you just want to try CBD, but which form will provide you with the best effects? How much CBD should you take?

Addressing these two questions with answers about what the bioavailability of CBD actually means will help you understand how to proceed.

CBD Oil.png

Simply put, bioavailability is measured by the degree and rate at which a substance is absorbed into the bloodstream. By definition, when a substance or supplement is administered intravenously, its bioavailability is 100%. However, when the same product is administered via other routes (such as orally), its bioavailability generally decreases or may vary from patient to patient. Bioavailability is one of the essential tools in pharmacokinetics, as bioavailability must be considered when calculating the serving size for non-intravenous routes of administration.

Bioavailability is the third-most important factor, right after the amount and strength of a substance when it comes to getting the most out of your CBD oil. Bioavailability also helps calculate users their CBD dosage at the start.

The bioavailability of CBD can vary based on the concentration of CBD in the given product and the administration method, which brings us to another essential question, namely:

What’s the Most Effective Way to Take CBD?

Well, if you’re looking for the most effective way to administer CBD, this would be intravenous administration. In other words, CBD would be injected directly into the bloodstream through the veins.

This method ensures a 100% bioavailability of CBD, but it’s by far the least popular option. Now, if you don’t prefer to stick yourself with a needle, worry not. There are plenty of different methods of using CBD.

Let’s discuss them and see how each affects the bioavailability of CBD.

Oral Consumption

Pill.jpg

This ingestion method doesn’t need an introduction. By oral consumption, we mean consuming something through your mouth. When it comes to CBD, common oral consumption methods include CBD edibles, beverages, gummies, and capsules.

As much as we admire the benefits of eating CBD, the truth is that any substance consumed orally will have to pass through your digestive and metabolic systems, which will in turn drastically reduce the bioavailability of CBD by filtering out a large portion of the cannabinoids.

According to a 1986 study, the bioavailability rate of orally consumed products is 6%. However, another study (from 2009) reported this rate to be between 4% and 20%. While these two results differ significantly, both indicate that the bioavailability of oral CBD products is not at all impressive, with 20% being the most optimistic scenario.

How to Increase the Bioavailability of Oral CBD?

The well-described disadvantage of oral CBD consumption gives raise to the obvious question – can the bioavailability of CBD oil be increased when you take it orally?

Yes, and the solution is initially pretty straightforward. Recent studies have proved the theory that cannabinoids consumed along with vegetable oils have higher availability than if used alone. As a matter of fact, the presence of vegetable oil can increase the bioavailability of CBD almost threefold.

How does it happen? CBD Oil has a very high affinity to chylomicrons, which are particles responsible for transporting the lipids from the small intestine to the bloodstream through the lymphatic system. This allows cannabinoids to bypass the liver, and as a result, you deliver more CBD to the bloodstream.

To cut the long story short, the more fats or oil you consume together with your daily intake of cannabinoids, the larger the lymph flow will be, and the more compounds will be able to get into the lymphatic system in their unmetabolized form.

Now, let’s move on to other forms of CBD.

Sublingual Consumption (Oral Tinctures)

Sublingual Consumption.png

Technically speaking, this is some form of oral consumption, but with one major difference. When you use CBD oral tinctures, you apply them beneath the tongue. This is where a vein called the sublingual gland is located.

When you put a few drops of CBD oil to the sublingual gland, the substance will get absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Aside from oral tinctures, you can also utilize your sublingual glans by ingesting CBD lozenges and CBD sprays.

There are a couple of different factors that can affect the bioavailability of CBD for sublingual use, but the main determiner is hands down the quality of CBD. Reported bioavailability rates range from 12% to 25%, which is still more effective than traditional oral consumption.

10x.png

In addition, a patented brand-new product being brought to the market by the firm I represent shows very promising results. Our 10x Pure product is hydrophilic, which means that it is attracted to water. A full spectrum product, it is estimated that bioavailability of the product is between 80 and 90%.

Inhalation

Vaporization is the new trend for both recreational and medical users who like to use dry herbs and essential oils to improve the quality of their lives or solve different health concerns.

Vape Pen.jpg

Vaporization involves inhaling CBD right into the lungs, using a special device called a vaporizer or vape pen. Because the inhaled cannabinoids directly enter the lungs, the CBD can reach the bloodstream within seconds. This method ensures lower breakdown rates and the higher bioavailability of CBD.

Moreover, vaporization is by far the most efficient method of CBD consumption with the exception of our 10x Pure product. As numerous medical studies report, bioavailability rates of vaporized CBD are between 34% and 46%. Some studies even report up to 56% bioavailability.

If you’re looking for one of the safest and more effective methods of CBD delivery, you now have a choice between our 10x Pure or vaporization (vaping).

Other Factors Affecting the Bioavailability of CBD

All of the above methods are affected by the hydrophobic character of CBD oil. Typical CBD oil is not meant to dissolve in water (our 10x Pure product is the exception), and for that reason, it diffuses out of the bloodstream and gets stored in fatty tissues. This, in turn, cuts the concentration of active CBD in the endocannabinoid system. As a result, the oil is less bioavailable.

Still, there are two other factors that can affect the bioavailability of CBD, so let’s take a brief look at them.

Serving Size

The effects of CBD depend on the serving size, and the optimal serving may vary from person to person and bioavailability of the product. When trying CBD oil for the first time, start with the serving size that is lower than that recommended by your CBD company. If you don’t feel the desired effects after a week, or they are just too mild for you, increase the serving size for another week. Continue until you are satisfied with the results.

The Quality of CBD Oil

Last but not least, the CBD content depends on the quality of the CBD oil. Top-notch CBD products will be consistent and provide the exact level of CBD that is advertised on a company’s labels and website. Make sure you always buy CBD oil from a reputable source that is open about the third-party lab testing results and sources its CBD from the finest, organic industrial hemp. GMP practices in manufacturing is another requirement that you should stand firm on.

This way, you will minimize the risk of falling into the trap of false promises made by some manufacturers in the industry.

CAN CBD OIL HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT? www.MyCBDchoices.com

What Is CBD?

Before we discuss how using CBD can help with weight loss, what is CBD? 

CBD is short for cannabidiol. CBD is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant.  CBD does not result in the typical high that the well-known THC does. Over the past few years, extensive research has been done on this ingredient, including all the amazing health benefits that it can bring. CBD has been shown to help with several ailments, including cancer pain, reduce inflammation, relieve multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms, reduce epileptic seizures, help with post-traumatic stress disorders, work as weight-loss supplements, improve blood sugar levels and blood pressure, and relief of chronic pain.

IS CBD OIL LEGAL?

CBD oil is legal in every state, so long as it meets the “Federal Legal Limit” of 0.3% THC by dry weight. All of MyCBDChoices.com CBD products provided by CTFO meet this standard and are legal.

USING CBD TO HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS

Over the past few years, CBD oil has been researched thoroughly in many ways,

My CBD Choices CBD Weight Loss

including its usefulness as a weight loss tool. Some people find this hard to believe at first because they automatically associate cannabis with THC and the “munchies” and, therefore, CBD with increasing a person’s appetite. But, that’s not the case at all.

THC and CBD are not the same. CBD has the opposite effect. It actually suppresses the appetite. Another powerful weight loss property of CBD is that it increases the level of mitochondria found within the body, allowing the body to burn more calories.

Research shows that CBD has a direct effect on our metabolism. During 2016, Korean researchers published a study on the topic in the scientific journal Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry. After carefully monitoring CBD and its effects on immature fat cells, aka preadipocytes, astonishingly, they found that the cannabinoid has not one, but three ways of effecting “fat browning”.

Fat browning is what changes white fatty tissue into beige/brown fatty tissue. While white fatty tissue is responsible for preserving energy, brown fatty tissues indicate the burning of energy. So, rather than have a buildup of white fatty tissue, the CBD browns the tissue before burning it all together.

Using CBD is one of the cleanest ways to help you lose weight and a lot of people are starting to realize this. It’s a natural weight loss tool that doesn’t affect the user’s body temperature, heart rate, or blood pressure.

Just remember, there is never a ‘one size fits all’ solution when it comes to losing weight, so if you do find that it’s not working as well as you’d hoped maybe try combing your CBD with another technique. There are plenty of effective methods out there for losing weight using CBD, you just need to find the one that works best for you.

FAQs

HOW DOES CBD DIFFER FROM THC?

THC is the psychoactive ingredient that gets people high. While both ingredients are cannabinoids, THC actually binds to the receptors in your brain inducing that feeling of euphoria. CBD does not have this property. It does not make you feel high.

ARE THERE ANY DANGERS OF DIETING WITH CBD?

CBD is considered to be a dietary supplement and so carries no more risk than any other natural vitamin. Be sure to check the label of any CBD products you do buy to ensure they don’t have any unwanted ingredients. You should also always check with your doctor if you are taking any medications. It is always best to buy CBD from a reputable company and CBD based products that are pure and do not have a lot of unneeded ingredients.

WHAT DOSE OF CBD OIL SHOULD I BE USING?

There is no one set answer to this question as it will depend on a number of different factors. Everyone metabolizes things at a different rate, so while some people will find that 5 mg is perfectly fine for them, others may need as much as 50 mg or more. The best way to find the right dose for you is to start low with about 5 mg and work your way up to a level where you are feeling the desired effects. Try each dose for a few days at a time to give it a chance to work. If you don’t feel the desired effects after around five days try increasing the dose by another 5 mg or so and maintain for a few days. Repeat and increase as necessary until you find the right dose for you.

WILL CBD SHOW UP ON A DRUGS TEST?

Drug tests look for THC readings, so as long as you stick to buying CBD products without THC you should have no problem at all.

Most people worry more about how much they eat instead of eating right. I am guilty of that myself. I admit I have a sweet tooth, but I am learning to control that. I am also working on eating healthier meals.Joe Medrano, XHLstyle, Xtreme Healthy Lifestyles

I am learning more and more that diet sodas and artificial sweeteners are not good for you and cause faster weight gain than had I consumed a regular soda.

Using Xtreme Healthy Lifestyles Sweet Infused Sweetener is just one way that has been helping me lose weight and feel better.

Many of us would like to lose weight but we do not want to adhere to a program. Diet is a four letter word and not a good one. 🙂

I have found that trying to lose weight on your own can be difficult. Find a friend or someone you can work with to lose weight together. You can help motivate and encourage each other on a daily basis even after you reach your goals.

You have to change your mindset to think about living a healthy lifestyle. Living a healthy lifestyle does not mean dieting all the time, or losing weight only to put it back on months later. It also does not mean, depriving yourself of those foods and drinks that you enjoy. It means moderating how much of it you put into your body.

You may eat less of the bad food but you can replace some of it with food that is good for you. The important thing is to moderate so you do not feel you are depriving yourself. If you feel like you are depriving yourself, you will most likely fail and put the weight back on.

There is no perfect weight or body size. The important thing is to be healthy and feel good about yourself no matter what.

How can you start living a healthier lifestyle? Here are a few steps:

  1. Change Your Mindset
  2. Set Attainable Goals
  3. Set Up a Support System
  4. Make Healthier Choices – Eat Right Not Less
  5. Start Moving – Sweat is good
  6. Most Importantly – Stick With It!

If you “fall off the wagon” it’s okay. Just brush yourself off and get right back up. Remember, you are working on a long-term healthy lifestyle not a short term diet or phase.

You may have one of those weekends or weeks where you put on a few pounds. We all do it. Just get back in to your healthy routine (without making it feel like a routine) and you will be fine.

If you are looking to lose weight and would like some motivation, you can join Xtreme Healthy Lifestyles 90 Day Challenge (The Challenge) and try to win the vacation of your dreams.
