In vitro and in vivo studies on cannabis have suggested that it has favorable effects on the regulation of pain, pruritus and inflammation, making it a potentially attractive therapeutic agent for many dermatological conditions. According to a study, cannabis contains antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that can help fight skin infections. Both THC and CBD, the most popular compounds in cannabis, have been found to alleviate numerous bacterial skin infections, such as boils, cellulitis, impetigo and even folliculitis. According to a study, cannabis fights MRSA, a bacteria that causes infections that are difficult to treat, since it does not respond to many antibiotics.
MSRA or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus cause infections in different parts of the body, leading to a potentially fatal infection. Both THC and CBD in cannabis have been shown to have powerful antioxidant properties. They protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Stress, ultraviolet rays and all types of pollution cause the creation of free radicals that can age the skin and cause skin cancer in some people.
