psoriasis and cbd
😁august marks psoriasis awareness month. so, we wanted to share how cbd could be a beneficial treatment option.
🙌there’s no known cure for psoriasis, but cbd can help ease symptoms!
🤩a 2016 study showed that an endocannabinoid called anandamide was able to prevent the production of key inflammation signals that are known to initiate and spread psoriasis in skin and immune cells.
🧴following this, a 2019 study investigated a topical cbd ointment that was applied to skin lesions twice daily for two months. the results showed that the cbd ointment improved skin hydration and elasticity.
🔥a more recent study published at the end of 2020 examined a shampoo containing cbd. it indicated that cbd was effective at reducing the severity of scalp inflammation, itching and burning in patients with scalp psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis.
🍍cbd taken as an edible may also help psoriasis patients control pain and reduce inflammation, with a topical application helping to treat skin itching and irritation!
👍cbd when taken regularly and at the right dose can be extremely helpful for many other inflammatory skin diseases.
