An estimated 31.6 million Americans suffer from some sort of eczema. Worldwide, roughly 20 percent of children and three percent of the adult population have eczema symptoms. More than 70 percent of eczema cases start in children under the age of five. In addition, about 60 percent of infants with eczema symptoms continue to have one or more of these symptoms in adulthood.
With eczema being so prevalent, many people are turning to alternative therapies to treat it. One of the most popular alternative therapies for eczema symptoms is CBD. Studies repeatedly have shown that CBD has powerful healing properties that can help a number of skin conditions, including eczema.
How does CBD Work?
CBD is one of the two main cannabinoids found in marijuana and hemp plants. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce any psychological effects. This has to do with how CBD interacts with the body.
