We’ve had some feedback from patients with roseacea who said Sweet Releaf does help soothe and calm down this condition. We’ve also been told that if the patient normally has a bit more sensitive skin than others, they might find that our unscented version (without essential oils for fragrance) is better suited to their needs. It’s always an experiment to find out what works best for your body type, but I’d recommend starting with the unscented so possible irritation from the essential oils does not interfere with your experience of how the topical works on the roseacea. Wishing you the best of luck.
To add to what Didi said, yes, many people have reported finding relief for rosacea from cannabis, and specifically from Sweet Releaf. Cannabis is high in antioxidants and its anti-inflammatory properties have been found to be good at reducing facial inflammation and physical redness that is caused by Rosacea. "Like the other major skin conditions, inhaling cannabis will produce little to no positive benefits for Rosacea sufferers. Instead, use a cannabis-infused topical and apply regularly over a consistent period of time.”
I encourage you to check out these resources on our website re: this. The second article is actually by Didi from Sweet Releaf. 🙂
I hope that helps!
I’ve also heard good things about Sweet Releaf’s unscented body butter, which contains both tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Recent research has found that THC is an effective pain-reliever, which would be helpful when it comes to easing the discomfort and pain that’s associated with skin conditions like rosacea. As well, since rosacea sufferers also tend to have inflamed skin including red bumps on their face, CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can help. And because topicals are intended to be moisturizing, this is also a good thing for the dry skin that is a symptom of rosacea.
In addition to using the Sweet Releaf topical, you may also want to consider consuming some cannabis to help reduce the stress and anxiety that often comes hand in hand with rosacea — it is after all a very visible condition that can draw unwanted attention, and therefore cause you emotional distress. If you’re not OK with the psychoactivity of THC, then non-psychoactive CBD microdosed on a regular, daily basis can still be helpful, both to relieve some of the pain and certainly the inflammation associated with rosacea, and because it’s been found to help improve mood as well as reduce stress and anxiety.
