Several studies have found skin care benefits of topical CBD, which doesn’t have psychoactive properties like THC. There’s potential for topical CBD to treat acne, itch, eczema, and psoriasis, according to a recent analysis of existing research.

The authors of the analysis pointed to a small study on 3 percent cannabis cream for acne.

The study found that people with acne and redness who applied CBD cream on one side of their face two times a day saw significant decrease in sebum (the oil that can cause acne) and redness.
