Psoriasis Relief with CBD
At Medterra, we are always amazed by the power of CBD and how it has helped many with their issues. CBD, or cannabidiol is one of the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, and is the second most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana after THC. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive and appears to produce significant changes in the body and has been found to have medical benefits.
Psoriasis is a common condition in which skin cells build up and form scales and itchy, dry patches which can last for years. They appear as small red bumps on the skin, and can develop into red patches with a silvery, scaly coating.
“My doctor has prescribed many different medications to help my psoriasis. Most of them have been topical steroids. They only temporarily alleviated my psoriasis symptoms, if at all.”
According to Dr. Jeanette Jacknin, a California-based dermatologist, consumers themselves are driving the demand for topical cannabis skin care products. Many patients have learned about topical CBD’s pain-relieving qualities, and are seeking a more natural alternative. Many have gravitated towards using CBD skin care for their dry skin and have shared their testimonies.
