Since tattoos are considered to be skin abrasions, the healing process for both is the same. Skin wounds and tattoos heal through a four-phase process: hemostasis, inflammatory, proliferative, and maturation. The phases include inflammation and pain, which are treated effectively with CBD. CBD, or cannabidiol, can heal wounds and tattoos throughout the entire process — from pain and inflammation to skin closure.
In a 2019 study, researchers investigated CBD’s effects on inflammation and subsequent scarring caused by skin disorders. The research indicated that CBD has healing effects on both the skin condition and the scarring. The researchers found that administering topical CBD to the diseased skin can heal the skin by reducing inflammation and providing an antioxidant effect.
Skin abrasions and other wounds, such as tattoos, can be treated with CBD topicals. CBD topicals come in balms, solvents, creams, and lotions. CBD topicals are easy to administer as you rub the topical into the skin. The amount of time it takes to heal the skin abrasion or tattoo depends on the severity of the wound.
