CBD and Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a condition that causes scaly patches on the skin. Since it is an auto-immune inflammatory disease, it is incurable. We can only try to keep the symptoms as mild as possible. There are many triggers that can worsen the situation, and they can vary from person to person. Stress is definitely among the most common ones. Some types of food can also trigger inflammations in some people and therefore affect the psoriasis. Conditions like diabetes and obesity are also associated with the disease.

Life with psoriasis can be challenging, but with the right approach a lot can be done to improve the condition of the skin. The recommendations are to follow a healthy diet, to minimize alcohol consumption and to avoid stress.

Does avoiding stress sound easier said than done?

It is probably not possible to avoid it, but we can at least try to cope with the stressors. Try meditation, sport activities that you like, treat yourself to a massage or a day at the spa from time to time.

You can also try aromatherapy, herbal teas, CBD oil, etc.

What treatments do we know for psoriasis?

People with psoriasis are willing to try all the available remedies to make their situation better. As already pointed out, there is no cure for psoriasis, but there are some products available that can help at reduce the symptoms. These include topical ointments, creams, oils and balms, which can also contain different active substances, like CBD balm, for example.

Does CBD oil work against psoriasis?

CBD balm is useful when caring for skin with psoriasis. Let’s see what the experts have to say about using CBD oil against psoriasis:

Cannabinoids could be a potential treatment for psoriasis, based on anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative and immunomodulatory mechanisms (Wilkinson, 2007; Derakhshan; 2016).

However, while all the reviewed studies support the potential role of cannabinoids in the treatment of psoriasis, there is still some further research needed.

So, what can we do for milder psoriasis symptoms?

First, it is important to follow a healthy lifestyle, since diet, daily exercise and keeping stress under control are very important.

Second, the skin needs to be nourished. Such nourishment can be challenging, but innovative cosmetic solutions are here to help. We suggest you give a CBD-infused balm or cream a chance.
