An alternative to steroids.
CBD Oil is gaining popularity among patients with these skin conditions, especially among those who find steroids ineffective.
What is Eczema?
Eczema can refer to many skin conditions, all of which are characterized by dry and itchy skin. Scratching makes skin worse, it becomes raw, sensitive, and swollen.
Doctors believe eczema is caused by an overreaction of immune cells in the skin. Things like soap, pollen, and pet dander can trigger inflammation, an “unnecessary” immune response. There is no cure for eczema. Many use steroids to control symptoms but they have side effects and don’t work for everyone.
What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is also a skin condition. It’s a chronic autoimmune disease which causes inflammation and skin cells to be produced too quickly. This buildup of “immature” skin cells forms raised patches that appear silver and scaly. It’s an itchy and painful condition that also causes inflammation, redness, swelling, and discomfort.
Psoriasis also puts people at higher risk for developing psoriatic arthritis and mental health issues.
How can CBD Oil for Psoriasis and Eczema Help?
CBD oil for psoriasis and eczema can help because of the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a large network of neurons that helps the body regulate many functions, including:
- Immune system function
The ECS consists of our bodies natural versions of cannabinoids, known as endocannabinoids and receptors. We have receptors in nearly every cell in the body, including all over the skin and in immune cells. That’s where CBD oil for psoriasis and eczema comes in.
