CBD has broken out in recent years as something of a miracle cure, used to help people with an impressively wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, PTSD, chronic pain, menstrual cramps, and even cancer. And now it’s starting to get popular as a treatment for yet another problem that plagues millions of people around the world: acne.

That’s right, if you’ve ever had acne, you probably already know how stubborn it can be, but you probably hadn’t thought of treating it with a cannabinoid extracted from the same plant that gets people high. Yet studies have shown that CBD can be a really effective treatment for acne by helping reduce inflammation and decrease oil production, two causes of the pesky skin condition.

One of the most popular and easiest ways to use CBD for acne is in the form of topical face oil, which you dab a few drops of onto your face as part of your daily skincare routine. Some people are really swearing by it, so if you suffer from stubborn acne that doesn’t respond to other issues, why not talk to your dermatologist and see if you can give it a shot?
