Using Cannabis For Psoriasis Relief

Psoriasis is a painful, itchy and burdensome skin condition affecting 7.5 million Americans today. Up to 40 percent of people with psoriasis experience joint inflammation that produces symptoms of arthritis. This condition is called psoriatic arthritis.

There is no cure for psoriasis. Usually when someone is diagnosed with psoriasis they are treated with a pharmaceutical based cream from their doctor with the warning that the condition can come back at any time and relief is temporary. Or in more severe cases, conventional pharmaceutical drugs used to treat psoriasis are typically systemic immuno-regulating agents that involve many side effects such as fever, diarrhea, liver dysfunction, and increased chance of infection.

Because psoriasis is caused by problems with the immune system, cannabis is an especially effective treatment. The cannabinoids in cannabis respond to CB1 and CB2 receptors located in the endocannabinoid system of the human body and are concentrated in the brain/central nervous system and the immune system.

Cannabis infused topicals are able to treat numerous skin conditions including psoriasis relief. Cannabis, specifically cannabidiol (CBD) effectively deals with the significant cause of this skin condition while avoiding the negative side effects of pharmaceutical drugs. Furthermore, CBD based topicals do not produce a psychoactive effect and are safe to use.

A study conducted in 2007 and published in the Journal of Dermatological Science determined that cannabinoids help prevent the buildup of dead skin cells and other symptoms of psoriasis. Concluded the researchers: “Our results show that cannabinoids inhibit keratinocyte proliferation, and therefore support a potential role for cannabinoids in the treatment of psoriasis.”
