The endocannabinoid system (ECS) has been implicated in multiple regulatory functions both in health and disease. Including the longest organ of the body, the skin.
Recent studies have shown the existence of a functional ECS in the skin. They decided to implicate it in various biological processes (e.g. proliferation, growth, differentiation, apoptosis and cytokine, mediator or hormone production of various cell types of the skin and appendages, such as the hair follicle and sebaceous gland). The main physiological function of the cutaneous ECS is to constitutively control the proper and well-balanced proliferation, differentiation and survival, as well as immune competence and/or tolerance, of skin cells. The disruption of this delicate balance might facilitate the development of multiple pathological conditions and diseases of the skin.

Hemp acts upon CB1 and CBD2 receptors located throughout the body to stimulate the endocannabinoid system, which can potentially help in the treatment of diseases or skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, contact allergy, chronic itching, seborrhea, itching and pain, hair growth disorders, systemic sclerosis, and cancer.
Hemp also helps control acne and maintain the skin health thanks to its nutrient content, vitamin E, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
