The antifungal properties of CBD have been known since the early 1980s. Cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabichromene (CBC) have shown remarkable antifungal properties, as well as having highly potent antibacterial agents. Additionally, the terpene caryophyllal oxide is a common component of the cannabis plant, which also has the ability to inhibit fungal growth on both cannabis plants and humans.
Terpenes are a class of compounds found in almost all plant species. They have many biological activities, including reducing inflammation, reducing pain sensitivity, and reducing anxiety. These properties are possible because terpenes and cannabinoids share a common biochemical precursor. This similarity gives them the ability to bind with different biological substances, including receptors and enzymes.
When trying to kill a fungal infection, you will have to kill the eukaryotic cells, which your body is made of. In turn, this makes the task of defending against a fungal infection much more complex than defending against a bacterial infection. CBD, CBG and CBC caused the eradication of onychomycosis (fungal infection of the nail) in a clinical study.
The study showed that treating a fungal infection with cannabinoids worked as fast as ciclopiroxolamine and sulconazole, two pharmaceutical antifungals. Some of the side effects associated with pharmaceutical antifungals include application site reactions, itching, burning and worsening of clinical signs and symptoms, severe blistering, dryness and irritation.
As stated above, CBD works at a rate comparable to pharmaceuticals, however, without the adverse side effects. CBD is becoming more popular as an antifungal treatment due to its ability to kill fungus without harming human cells. CBD is a natural remedy for all kinds of fungal infections; athlete’s foot, fungal nail infections, yeast infections, skin infections, and ringworm. CBD can be administered orally, in the form of CBD oil, or used as a topical cream to treat the infection locally.
