Having a skin condition can be very irritating not just physically but emotionally. Skin conditions can cause you to feel not only uncomfortable because of the irritation on the skin but also might make you feel self-conscious in appearance. There are many different skin conditions however, one common condition many people become diagnosed with is Psoriasis.
Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease that causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. Psoriasis typically affects the outside of the elbows, knees, or scalp, though it can appear on any location. Many people report that psoriasis is itchy and causes burning/stinging.
There are 3 million US cases reported every year. Many people question how do you get psoriasis? Well when you have psoriasis, your immune system is overactive. This creates inflammation inside the body, which is a cause of the symptoms you see on the skin. More healthy cells are produced than normal.
Those excess cells get pushed to the surface of your skin too quickly. Unfortunately, there is no cure for psoriasis currently. There are treatments available to help stop skin cells from growing so quickly and providing relief such as steroids, anti-inflammatory, and immunosuppressive drugs.
Along with any medication you are facing the possible side effects and long-term use complications. CBD is extremely helpful in relieving psoriasis symptoms because of its anti-inflammatory properties and its support of the immune system. With psoriasis, the production of keratinocytes in the epithelium is accelerated and cannabinoids help normalize the cycle, leading to the reduction of scaly skin.
Researchers completed a study in Italy with five psoriasis patients, after applying CBD topical ointment twice a day for three months researchers proven that CBD not only proved to be very effective in alleviating symptoms but also improved the quality of life for psoriasis patients.
