Does Marijuana cause acne?

I've been smoking for years now and I have mild acne. I'm just curious if pot could be causing it?

Re: Does Marijuana cause acne?

i think the actual smoke is probably not very good for skin. i dont think the budda itself is the culprit. any smokers out there see a difference?

Re: Does Marijuana cause acne?

I'm not talking cigarettes here. But I think you guys know that. I just quit marijuana the other day so I'll let you know if it helps. I also just started taking vitamin E, C, Beta Carotene and zinc. It'll be a full week saturday. The doc has me on retin a-micro and minocyclin. But the way that you guys are talking, I don't think my acne is that bad. I just want a perfect complexion. I'll keep you updated to let you know if my regiment works. You guys should start posting pictures of your face. To let other people with acne see how bad yours really is. It might help, I think alot of us think it's worse than it is.

Re: Does Marijuana cause acne?

I know it pollutes your skin, don't know about it actually causing acne though...probably just a coincidence if something pops up after smoking... Interesting question though.

Re: Does Marijuana cause acne?

I can't answer about pot smoking, but for me smoking cigarettes seemed to have no impact. I quit smoking almost 2 years ago and I still have the same acne woes as when I did smoke.

Re: Does Marijuana cause acne?

nope...it does not cause acne!
i'm sure the smoke isn't good for the skin but it isn't a cause.
my fiance use to smoke alot and had no acne...
she doesn't smoke anymore and has cystic acne now.
i am a heavy smoker and do not have any acne.

Re: Does Marijuana cause acne?

Lol, you smoked every day for 5 days then quit for 3 years... lol lol

I've smoked weed every day for the past 3 months (and im a lot poorer too)

and i get good days and bad days
ill be totally clear one day, bruck out the next
its crazy

so no, it doesnt do a thing

but maybe it could for you
everyone reacts different
thats the problem with this board
no one has the same thing wrong with them
because b5 works for some not for others, etc.

well, good luck

Re: Does Marijuana cause acne?

Nah...I don't think so either.
I used to smoke every day and I have zits. I quit for a month or so and the zits are still there. Then I tried again and they are still there. They come and go, but it has nothing to do with maryjane.

Re: Does Marijuana cause acne?

I'm an avid pot smoker, I smoke about 3-5 times daily. Marijuana depletes your body of minerals and vitimins as so I have heard, therefore, saying it doesn't cause acne is somewhat un-true.

Another thing I've noticed is the whole "cotton mouth" thing it causes, I believe it also does something to the blood, everytime I smoke any cyst I have sort of pulsate, I can feel my zits throbbing and they get somewhat enflamed.

Re: Does Marijuana cause acne?

Your zits pulse? Man, that's gross. Haha.. This thread was just too funny to pass up. Glad I read it. Personally, I don't think I've ever heard of any true link between cannabis and pimples.

Like I've said before, 95% of acne experienced by folks is simply a result of hormone-induced oily skin. Washing one's face can help, but it's not at all a cure. Just hang in there and wait 'til you're body chemistry settles out a bit. That's it.
