Eczema can be a very distressing condition. It not only affects the appearance of skin but causes itching, pain and discomfort and can cause anxiety and lack of confidence. Here we take a look at the potential benefits of CBD cream for eczema.
CBD cream is a lotion, salve or cream that is infused with CBD for application to the skin.
When treating eczema we are looking to:-
1: Reduce inflammation
2: Soothe and nourish the skin
Although there needs to be more work done to investigate the benefits of CBD creams for eczema there have been encouraging studies including this one in 2019. It showed that CBD has anti-inflammatory effects. The study concluded CBD was a “safe, effective and can be used as a non-invasive alternative for improving inflammatory skin conditions such as for eczema.
A 2020 study in which participants with self-reported eczema used CBD cream 50% of participants reported that their eczema improved by more than 60%.
CBD also contains vitamins A, D, and E, and essential fatty acids, which are all essential in the production and maintenance of healthy skin and a high quality CBD cream can soothe soreness and irritation.
You should consult with your Dr or dermatologist before using CBD cream for skin conditions. If you both agree to go ahead with trying CBD choose a trusted supplier that can produce the lab analysis for the product you are choosing.
