cbd topical cream for skin cancer

CBD is getting researched by several scientists for several properties and CBD has shown positive results and great potential. Up till now, CBD-based products have been approved by the FDA to be used by patients suffering from epilepsy. As mentioned above, CBD or cannabidiol is a botanic chemical usually extracted from the marijuana plant.

What CBD owes its skin-related properties to is the cannabinoid receptors present on the skin on keratinocytes, sebaceous glands, dermal immune cells, and even hair follicles. Hence why topical applications are quick acting and targeted to a specific area.

Skin problems, we’ve all had them at some point in our life. These problems range from mild acne to serious psoriasis or eczema. Especially young teens, as the age approaches with the change in hormonal balance, breakouts are bound to happen at some point.


The best thing is that it is completely free of THC. It will not get you high and you will not get tested positive for drugs. The cream provides a soothing and cooling effect on your brain and body. It promotes healthy skin.

Rosemary in the product works as an antioxidant and releases toxins. The eucalyptus oil extract is essential for maintaining healthy skin and aloe vera prevents dryness. Further menthol in the lotion provides a cooling and soothing effect.

Let’s see which best CBD creams for skin health are available in the market!

The ingredients are vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. It is free of preservatives, additives, and heavy metals. That means it is safe to apply to your skin. The cream prevents stress dryness and cracking of the skin.

Never having been asked this before, a thorough review of the available literature was carried out, but sadly there have been absolutely no published clinical trials to date so it is impossible to recommend this treatment.

Cannabis oil is of course illegal in New Zealand so as a treatment option it is not valid in any case. Hemp oil contains cannabinoids but the concentration is much lower.

Cannabinoids do bind to receptors which are present in many cells and there is some evidence in highly controlled laboratory circumstances that cannabinoids may inhibit some cancers. Sadly, there is also evidence that it may actually accelerate growth in others. There have been no useful trials in living humans and animal trials are not conclusive. The link at the end of this article gives more information and is maintained by the Uk Cancer Society so may be seen as a trusted and valid reference.

We feel that it is important to point out that there is also good evidence that smoking cannabis (as opposed to a topical application) significantly increases the risk of lung and head and neck cancer, whether or not it is used in combination with tobacco. Whilst there may in the future be a place for medicinal use of cannabinoids, at present the evidence very strongly suggests that in almost all cases the side effects outweigh the benefits.

It is important to note that some of the cancers being illustrated as treated with the oil are of a type that can spread and potentially kill the patient. We feel that using a totally untrialled medication like cannabis oil in such circumstances is very unwise.
