My sister struggled with chronic acne problems for years.
It started when she was in middle school and my parents bought her the basic products you find at most stores.
But the astringent and the acne creams were not helping in the least bit. They started buying the three-course acne treatment that you see marketed by a number of different major companies, some on TV. It was a huge improvement from using astringent and cheap acne cream, and it gave her more confidence as a result. It wasn’t a perfect treatment, but it was better than the alternatives at the time. This is why it’s so important to have options for people struggling with chronic acne, as some people are resistant to the best treatments available. There are some that don’t see improvement with the three-course treatments, even if they’re bought from the best sources. It’s amazing to see researchers studying the wide medical benefits of minor cannabinoids other than THC and CBD. Many people have read about cannabinol (CBN) and cannabigerol (CBG), but few know about the cannabinoid known as cannabichromene (CBC). CBC has been studied since the 1960s and is showing potential as a pain reducer like its sister cannabinoid, CBD. They activate the body’s natural endocannabinoid response which dulls pain receptors throughout the body. But scientists are also looking at CBC’s effects on acne. CBC has anti-inflammatory effects capable of suppressing the sebaceous glands that produce acne. This would be a huge step forward for medical acne treatment. People like my sister need more options for acne than what is already on the market and readily available at grocery stores and pharmacies.
