Cannabidiol May Treat Acne, Finds Study

A study published recently in the Journal of Clinical Investigation and the National Institute of Health has found that thecannabisleaf cannabis compound cannabidiol, often referred to simply as CBD, may provide a potential treatment for acne.

For the study, researchers used cannabidiol derived from cannabis on human sebaceous gland function, and determined that CBD behaves as a highly effective sebostatic agent.

“Administration of CBD to cultured human sebocytes and human skin organ culture inhibited the lipogenic actions of various compounds, including arachidonic acid and a combination of linoleic acid and testosterone, and suppressed sebocyte proliferation via the activation of transient receptor potential vanilloid-4 (TRPV4) ion channels”, claims researchers.

Cannabis Kills Brain Cancer Cells, According to Study

A study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation found that THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) – a prime component of cannabismarijuana-leaf – can kill brain cancer cells by causing them to self-digest.

Researchers for the study examined mice subjects which were implanted with human cancer cells, as well as several human subjects with brain tumors, and found that THC causes brain cancer cells to undergo a process called autophagy; according to WebMD, autophagy is the “breakdown of a cell that occurs when the cell essentially self-digests.”
