A new way to treat skin disorders has been discovered. Scientists and researchers at the University of Colorado claim that the anti-inflammatory property of cannabidiol (CBD) proves to be an effective solution for many skin disorders, including eczema and psoriasis. They have also started the clinical trials to establish its effectiveness against other common skin problems.
The potential health benefits of CBD are supported by the World Health Organization (WHO). In addition to WHO, health organizations around the globe have given support. On top of skin disorders, a team of researchers led by Dr. Robert Dellavalle have initiated a research experiment to establish the role of CBD in treating Parkinson’s patients with Seborrheic Dermatitis. The research study involves 40 patients, hoping to find an alternative to current treatment practices.
CBD is the second most abundant component of cannabis. It is non-psychoactive in nature with therapeutic values attached to it. Despite its illegal status, companies like Holland & Barrett are legally selling CBD oil in the UK to provide result driven options to its consumer base.
