Naturally being highly lipophilic, these antifungal, antibacterial properties are passed over to the terpenes of hemp. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Seymour Simone 0 Questions 98 Answers 0 Best Answers 202 Points View Profile Seymour Simone 2020-06-11T09:30:44-04:00Added an answer on June 11, 2020 at 9:30 am I would consult a doctor before using hemp oil as an anti-fungal ointment. Hemp oil has been successful combating some fungus, but I would say you’re better off using an anti-fungal cream that your doctor recommends. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 174 Answers 0 Best Answers 365 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-05-18T11:37:51-04:00Added an answer on May 18, 2020 at 11:37 am Yes. It probably isn’t strong enough to combat your toe fungus, but there do exist certain terpenes that help the hemp plant combat fungal pathogens while it’s growing. If you do decide to try to use CBD oil topically to combat against fungal dermatitis, I would only use broad or full spectrum because it will contain the lesser known terpenes that combat fungus (the terpenes that Nick24 mentioned). All in all, hemp oil is great for your skin and inflammation, so it’d be worth a shot to try it for your fungus outbreaks. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Nick24 0 Questions 3 Answers 0 Best Answers 24 Points View Profile Nick24 2020-04-07T00:33:24-04:00Added an answer on April 7, 2020 at 12:33 am Hemp oil, also known as CBD oil, contains a natural compound that displays antifungal properties. These cannabinoids contain cannabidiol (CBD), cannabichromene (CBC), and cannabigerol (CBG). The hemp oil has one oxygen and one hydrogen atom. Hence, this oil kills the fungus by killing off its membrane cells by targeting ergosterol. Without ergosterol, the fungus cannot survive for long, and once it dies, it does not harm any other particle. Hemp oil also increases the effectiveness of many other antifungal properties. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
