420 with CNW — Study Suggests Minor Cannabinoids Could Treat Skin Ailments

Recent research suggests that lesser-known cannabinoids derived from marijuana and hemp, such as CBN, CBM, CBC, CBDV and THCV, might hold promise in treating dermatological conditions INCLUDING acne, psoriasis and eczema. The study, published recently in the peer-reviewed journal “Molecules,” highlights the potential therapeutic value of these minor cannabinoids in managing skin disorders as well as presenting new avenues for patient care and well-being enhancement.

The research, led by Polish scholars Dorota Kowalczuk and Emilia Kwiecień, involved an extensive review of existing scientific literature. The team observed that minor cannabinoids exhibit a range of pharmacological activities, encompassing anti-itch, analgesic, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. These cannabinoids have also shown efficacy in alleviating symptoms linked to various dermatological issues, including pruritus, acne, eczema and psoriasis.

Some minor cannabinoids appeared particularly suited for targeting specific skin conditions. For instance, CBDV, due to its anti-inflammatory characteristics, can potentially soothe itching and inflammation related to atopic dermatitis. Additionally, its antioxidant properties could aid in healing acne lesions.

Similarly, other recently identified cannabinoids such as CBE and CBM display anti-inflammatory potential and open new avenues for research into targeted disease conditions. CBC, known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, may offer benefits for treating psoriasis, acne and atopic dermatitis.

THCV stands out for its potential in combating acne because it appears to regulate sebum production. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial attributes contribute to alleviating inflammation and targeting bacteria linked to acne development.

The researchers highlighted the therapeutic potential of minor cannabinoids, including cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabidiforol (CBDP) and cannabidivarin (CBDV), as well as newer discoveries such as cannabielsoin (CBE) and cannabimovone (CBM).

The effects are believed to stem from interactions between cannabinoids and the body’s endocannabinoid system, a central regulatory mechanism crucial for maintaining organism health and function. This system plays a pivotal role in regulating skin functions, immune responses, cell differentiation, proliferation and survival, thereby effectively mitigating skin inflammation. Furthermore, topical application of these minor cannabinoids may hold promise for mitigating aging-related effects on the skin.

However, the researchers caution that more in-depth research is essential to validate their safety and effectiveness. Multiple challenges, including impact on the nervous system, product quality and regulation concerns, and ethical and legal considerations, need comprehensive exploration.

They concluded that despite the encouraging therapeutic potential, the utilization of cannabinoids, particularly minor ones, requires continued research, stringent regulations and a balanced approach to maximize benefits while minimizing any potential risks to health and society.

Companies such as Canopy Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: CGC) (TSX: WEED) selling marijuana for both medical and recreational use could be helping people combat more symptoms or conditions than the patients themselves intend.
