Psoriasis - CBD (Cannabidiol) Health Benefits

Psoriasis & CBD

Using cannabidiol (CBD) can alleviate many of the unsightly and itchy Psoriasis symptoms…


Psoriasis is a long lasting chronic skin disease that produces red, flaky, crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales and can cause soreness, itching and burning sensations. Affecting around 2% on the UK’s population psoriasis can start at any age but generally starts in adults under 35 years old and can be minor irritant or a major life disturbing condition.

Psoriasis produces patches that normally appear on your elbows, knees, scalp and lower back, but can appear anywhere on your body. Psoriasis is a result of skin cells that multiply up to 10 times faster than normal, as underlying cells reach the skin's surface and die, their sheer volume causes raised, red plaques covered with white scales.

CBD helps treat and can possibly cure psoriasis…


The US National Institute of Health is conducting clinical trials into the potency of CBD (Cannabidiol) as a treatment for psoriasis. Because this skin condition is caused by an autoimmune disease. Autoimmunity occurs when the immune system automatically launches an inflammatory response, which in the case of psoriasis, focuses on the skin.

CBD has a potent positive effect on the endocannabinoid system and the endocannabinoid system plays a large role when it comes to skin health and disease.

Cannabidiol (CBD) acts as an immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory agent…


Since there are cannabinoid receptors in cells throughout the skin, it is possible to address a dermatological condition both with systemic and topical CBD remedies. The anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative characteristics of CBD can act against the symptoms of psoriasis as well as fighting this skin disease via the endocannabinoid system.

Research Studies about the effectiveness of CBD on Psoriasis…


A study published in the Journal of Dermatological Science in February 2007 found that CBD may offer therapeutic value for psoriasis by slowing the overgrowth of certain skin cells. Another study submitted to the same Journal of Dermatological Science in 2012 revealed that CBD does in fact help treat psoriasis very effectively.
