Does CBD benefit the skin?

  • According to the 2019 study, “A therapeutic effect of CBD-enriched ointment in inflammatory skin diseases and cutaneous scars,” 
  • Researchers administered topical CBD-enriched ointment to lesioned skin twice daily for three months on 20 patients with psoriasis (n=5), atopic dermatitis (n=5) and resulting outcome scars (n=10)
  • The study goes on to report that following three months, researchers saw improvement in inflammatory and skin symptoms

By: Morgan Petronelli

The use of CBD skincare products is recently on the rise, but do these products really possess the skin benefits companies claim they do?

Cannabidiol (CBD), one of two active ingredients in cannabis, has recently come to the forefront of the beauty industry, with companies rushing to put the substance into products such as moisturizers and face masks, among others. However, these companies are hurrying to implement CBD into skincare without fully knowing its effect on the skin.

In 2018 Farm Bill, the United States Federal government legalized the regulated production of hemp, a cannabis sativa plant containing CBD and less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).1 This change in policy caused a sudden increase in products containing CBD, with companies claiming its many health benefits without the clinical data to support those very claims.

However, some recently conducted studies have found that CBD does have the potential to benefit the skin.

According to the 2019 study, “A therapeutic effect of CBD-enriched ointment in inflammatory skin diseases and cutaneous scars,” researchers administered topical CBD-enriched ointment to lesioned skin twice daily for three months on 20 patients with psoriasis (n=5), atopic dermatitis (n=5) and resulting outcome scars (n=10).2 The study goes on to report that following three months, researchers saw improvement in inflammatory and skin symptoms.

Another study from the Journal of Drug in Dermatology published in 2014 found CBD has the potential to aid in suppression of acne breakouts by regulating oil production within the sebaceous glands.3

Despite all of these findings, there is still a need for further research to identify and investigate CBD’s benefits for the skin.

In this two-part series, Aesthetic Authority takes a closer look at CBD skincare market and examines its possible skin benefits.

Shifting Trends – CBD and The “Big Pharma”

  • According to a study, more than 42% of the people who use hemp-derived products and CBD have stooped using synthetic drugs and pharmaceuticals to tackle their medical conditions effectively
  • What this figure shows is a shift of consumers’ confidence towards these natural products rather than the synthetic ones

By: Jamie Moses

With the increasingly immense popularity of CBD and other hemp-based products, the role of naturally extracted medicine in the realm of the global medicinal industry and big pharmaceuticals is growing at a rapid rate. As various studies and researches have proven the beneficial medical impacts of these CBD compounds, their use for the purposes of health and wellbeing is becoming more and more popular. 

The battle between naturally extracted medicine and pharmaceuticals has always been a controversial debate. The role of big pharma” in health and the theories revolving around their shady impacts has always been contentious. Especially after the wide range popularity and cultivation of CBD and its products such as CBD oils, this issue has been highlighted even more. While the big pharma relies on chemicals and synthetics processes for their medicine to interact and work on the human body, natural medicine is more palatable and relies on its structure and nature to be able to bind with the targetted receptors of the body to provide satisfactory results. 

According to a study, more than 42% of the people who use hemp-derived products and CBD have stooped using synthetic drugs and pharmaceuticals to tackle their medical conditions effectively. What this figure shows is a shift of consumers’ confidence towards these natural products rather than the synthetic ones. But why is this change of dynamics occurring so suddenly after the discovery of CBD, when the use of herbal medicine is not at all a new trend and dates back many years? According to WHO, more than half of the world population already uses herbal means for their medical anomalies then why is the impact created by CBD so immense? The answer lies in its qualities and various medical benefits it imparts on the body with little or no side effects. The reasons why people are turning towards CBD oils and plant medicine are provided here.

High costs – Both financial and physical:

Pharmaceutical options may be more effective in terms of their selective activism and rapid action by IV fluids, but they come with a high price. Medical insurances and various critical condition drugs are almost too expensive for every citizen to get. This has created a trend among people to shift towards natural means of medicine and wellbeing and that is where CBD oil has been so much dominant. The lower production overheads and a non-monopolized market have kept the prices of these drugs quite lower as compared to the pharmaceuticals. 

Effectiveness:

According to a study, 52% of the people using CBD products daily or regular;y have reported these drugs to be more effective than the pharmaceuticals. The extended researches done have shown that the first-hand reactions of those people are in fact accurate and CBD really works better for them. It has to do with the fact that CBD oil can activate the ECS system of the body and can antagonize the CB1 and Cb2 receptors binding with them effects to provide good results. Moreover, the non-psychoactive nature of CBD means it does not get you “high: or mind-altered like other cannabis-derivatives THC.

Multi-purpose:

Various studies have shown that CBD is a medical marvel that can be used to treat various medical conditions. People are now using CBD Oil for pain, anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, neurogenesis, anti-cancer treatments, skin condition, and even heart problems. With the recent researches proving the effectiveness of CBD in these medical anomalies and a wide range of consumption options available to the people, it is no shock that CBD products are upholding the drug market right now.

Side-effects:

According to a study conducted over a span of 30 years gathering information from various hospitals, almost 7% of the people using big pharma drugs are likely to have serious reactions to the medicines and require immediate medical attention. Many more have mild to low side effects after using these pharmaceuticals. This has also caused the people to start using alternatives and look for safer and natural options. 

Final thoughts:

Although the medical effectiveness and easy access is a major factor in the favor of cannabis products, the lingering confusion regarding its legal status and dosage regulations still cause hurdles in the way. With the recent law changes, the hemp cultivation has seen an uprise and only by educating people more can this industry of herbal medicine become more effective and provide for the betterment of mankind.

8 Small Cap #Cannabis Companies That Will Lead The Next Growth Cycle For The $97 Billion Market By 2026 $AVCN.ca $CBDT.ca $HBOR.ca $HOLL.ca $INNO.ca $SPDR.ca $TBI.ca $TCAN.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 3:39 PM on Thursday, October 8th, 2020

Despite the collapse of marijuana and cannabis related stocks in the last 18 months, there is no denying that Cannabis related products are going to go through a paradigm shifting, parabolic growth stage around the world over this decade for the following reasons:

  1. Cannabis legalization is gaining momentum around the world.
  2. Momentum is primarily driven by the realization that cannabis may have a range of medicinal, therapeutic and wellness applications.
  3. It is the most widely cultivated, consumed and trafficked drug worldwide (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime).

So what is this going to translate into?

The global cannabis market size was valued at $US 10.6 Billion in 2018 and is projected to reach $97.5 Billion by the end of 2026, a CAGR of 32.92% (Fortune Business Insights)

WHY WILL THIS TIME BE DIFFERENT?

Big promises, big IR budgets, big hype …. Big Letdown.

That pretty much sums up the last cycle of Cannabis related companies that focused on speed, stories and stock prices rather than the one simple but important thing they should have been doing – building a real business.

Investors will remember that the same thing happened during the dot-com era.  As with the cannabis collapse over the last 18 months, what followed back in 2000 was a long period of mourning in which many investors had sworn off tech stocks, just as they have with cannabis stocks today.

But it wasn’t long until tech investors dusted themselves off and realized tech was here to stay – but this time they were only going to focus on real companies with real businesses.  What we got was Amazon, Google, Linkedin, Facebook and then the rest was history.

The same thing is about to happen to the Cannabis sector

Meet the 8 new horsemen of the next leadership group that are firing on all cylinders (in alphabetical order).

Avicanna (AVCN :TSX) (AVCN : OTCQX) ( 0NN: FSE) is a vertically-integrated biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing various cannabinoid-based products for the global marketplace.

When we say vertically integrated, we mean it. Avicanna has 4 fully operating divisions to address the entire market for Cannabis products as follows:

1.  The company has a full line of high end CBD based skin care products serving the consumer retail segment with Canadian distribution through Medical Cannabis by Shoppers, as well as global distribution later this year.  These are the only known CBD cosmetics backed by clinical trials.

2.  Avicanna’s superior medical cannabis line also features products distributed through Medical Cannabis by Shoppers, the online arm of Canada’s largest drugstore chain. In addition, the company recently received certification and authorization for the sale of pharmaceutical cannabinoid products with medical prescriptions in Colombia.

3.  Avicanna also hosts a full pipeline of Pharmaceuticals in various stages of trials to address Dermatology, Psychiatry, Neurology, Pain and Oncology. Three of the company’s products are already as far as phase 2.

AND… if that is not enough …

4.  Avicanna’s Colombian cultivation division hosts 500,000 Sq ft of low cost and USDA certified organic Cannabis Cultivation. The company recently Made History As The First Ever Export Of Feminized Hemp Seeds From Colombia To The United States. 7,000,000 Seeds For $380,000, with an additional 75,000,000 Seeds Available For Export In Several Pending Transactions.

Empower (CBDT: CSE) (EPWCF:OTCQB) (8EC:Frankfurt) is a vertically integrated, multi-state operator of medical clinics with a database of over 165,000 patients, a database that almost every medical cannabis and CBD company would kill for … but then these numbers recently came in for the first two quarters to further cement Empower as a leader:

PatientVisits

  • Q1 + 377% To 5,717
  • Q2 + 56% To 6,696

Revenues $USD

  • Q1 + 416% To $790,000 (NO COVID)
  • Q2 + 56% To $923.000

TOTAL Q1 AND Q2

  • REVENUE                 $1.7M vs $745K         = + 130%
  • PATIENTS                 12,400 vs 5,500           = + 125%
  • NET LOSS                 $920K vs 1.85M         = – 50% 

Empower has now delivered growth in 4 successive financial reports (Q4, FY 2019, Q1 and Q2), so it is safe to say that superstar CEO Steve McAuley can officially claim victory on the turnaround he inherited in 2019. 

BONUS – The Company’s physician staffed clinics have are also generating significant revenue and growth from the COVID-19 pandemic as follows: 

  • Increased CBD treatments from patients suffering increased anxiety;
  • Testing for individuals and families
  • Testing for local businesses and employees 
  • Testing for enterprise level organizations across the country 
  • Acquisition of an 8,000 sq ft lab in Dallas that can process 4,000 COVID-19 tests per day
    • At the lowest price of $USD 80 per test and operating on just 1,000 tests per day, the clinic would deliver $USD 80,000 in revenue PER DAY

Oh, and did we mention that CEO Steven McAuley is Six Sigma certified under the quality initiative of legendary GE (General Electric) Chairman Jack Welch? We’ve never seen a Six Sigma certified CEO in the Canadian small cap markets. Never.  Which explains how McAuley has been able to guide Empower Clinics through the most disruptive retail environment in recent history and turn it into significant growth.

Growing Adoption of CBD Pharmaceutical Grade and Wellness Products Having Healthy Impact on Market Growth

  • Global CBD and CBD oil market revenues are projected to continue to rise significantly in the coming years
  • Increasing consumer preference for various cannabidiol infused products such as capsules, cannabis oil, beverages, beauty and skincare products, gummies, and dog treats is further anticipated to drive the CBD oil and CBD consumer health market

PALM BEACH, Fla., Oct. 1, 2020– The global CBD and CBD oil market revenues are projected to continue to rise significantly in the coming years. Increasing consumer preference for various cannabidiol infused products such as capsules, cannabis oil, beverages, beauty and skincare products, gummies, and dog treats is further anticipated to drive the CBD oil and CBD consumer health market. Cannabidiol can enter the body in several ways such as vaping, ingesting, smoking, and through the skin. Growing adoption of cannabidiol to manufacture medical drugs and personal care products in states where cannabis is legal is positively impacting the market growth. The legalization of cannabis-based products has provided a remarkable opportunity for the end-user industries to expand. The growing number of research activities, increasing awareness regarding synthetic cannabidiol, and rising strategic investments by companies are expected to contribute to the overall growth through 2027.

About Avicanna

Avicanna is a diversified and vertically integrated Canadian biopharmaceutical company focused on the research, development, and commercialization of plant-derived cannabinoid-based products for the global consumer, medical, and pharmaceutical market segments.

Avicanna is an established leader in cannabinoid research and development, which it primarily conducts at its R&D headquarters in the Johnson & Johnson Innovation Centre, JLABS @ Toronto, Canada and in collaboration with leading Canadian academic and medical institutions. In addition to its developing pharmaceutical pipeline, Avicanna’s team of experts have developed and commercialized several industry leading product lines, including:

  • Pura H&W™: an advanced and clinically tested line of CBD consumer derma-cosmetic products; and,
  • RHO Phyto™: an advanced line of medical cannabis products containing varying ratios of CBD and THC currently available nation-wide across Canada in partnership with Medical Cannabis by Shoppers™, a subsidiary of Shoppers Drug Mart. RHO Phyto is the first strictly medical formulary of advanced “Cannabis 2.0” products, containing oils, sprays, capsules, creams, and gels, all developed with scientific rigour, manufactured under GMP standards and supported by pre-clinical data.

With ongoing clinical trials on its derma-cosmetic (Pura H&W), medical cannabis (RHO Phyto) and a pipeline of pharmaceutical products, Avicanna’s dedication to researching the important role that cannabinoids play in an increasingly wider scope of products has been at the core of the Company’s vision since its inception. Furthermore, Avicanna’s commitment to education is demonstrated through its annual medical symposium, the Avicanna Academy educational platform, and the My Cannabis Clinic patient program through its subsidiary company.

Avicanna manages its own supply chain including cultivation and extraction through its two majority-owned subsidiaries, Sativa Nativa S.A.S. and Santa Marta Golden Hemp S.A.S., both located in Santa Marta, Colombia. Through these sustainable, economical, and industrial scale subsidiaries, Avicanna cultivates, processes, and commercializes a range of cannabis and hemp cultivars dominant in CBD, CBG, THC, and other cannabinoids for use as active pharmaceutical ingredients. Avicanna’s Avesta Genetica program specializes in the development and optimization of rare cultivars for commercial production along with feminized seeds for global export. In June 2020, Avicanna made history with a shipment of hemp seeds to the United States of America by completing the first ever export of hemp seeds from Colombia.
