We all know that acne is a particularly difficult skin condition to treat. I remember as a teenager trying in vain many different topical creams, pills and even changing my diet to see if it altered my acne. But now, this could all be about to change with the advent of cannabis & cannabinoids that are meant to help acne. Oh, the people who have tried it have been mightily impressed with the results. It certainly appears that cannabinoids offer something that many other compounds don’t have.
In the past, it was generally agreed that when you smoked cannabis, the chances of you suffering from acne increased. Health experts point to the fact that smoking cannabis increased levels of testosterone in the body, which in turn resulted in an imbalance in the smoker’s hormones, which leads to more cases of acne.
Health professionals have speculated as to how and why marijuana is able to have a positive effect on your skin, regardless of the way you use it. There are more ways to use cannabis than just smoking it. So why the positive effect? Many believe it is because of the release of serotonin, which is commonly associated with a feeling of happiness. The release of serotonin in time gives you that “healthy glow”.
We feel that the best way to use cannabis for treating acne is to make a mask and apply it to your face. It is important to make the mask with hemp oil or cannabis oil and can be done by following our guide below.
First of all, you need:
- 1 avocado (make sure that the avocado is ripe)
- Quarter cup of cannabis oil or hemp seed oil. Cannabis infused coconut oil is another potential option to consider.
- In order to make it smell nice, you may wish to add a couple drops of lavender, peppermint, or tea tree oil.
- A makeup brush to apply the mask (you can also use your hands).
In order to find your nearest dispensary to acquire cannabis oil, use the dispensary near me tool.
First of all, take the avocado and cut it in half, then take out the pit of the avocado, and mash the avocado up in a bowl. You could even use a blender. Then, mix in the rest of the ingredients that we listed above. Before applying to the face, we’d recommend a steam treatment which opens your pores and really enhances the positive effects that the mask will provide. You can just boil some water in a washing bowl, lean over the bowl with a towel and stay there for a few minutes. After doing this, you can then apply the mask. We’d recommend you keep the mask on for about 10 – 20 minutes before removing. Good luck and we hope you managed to experience some good effects!
