Did you know that more than 125 million people worldwide are dealing with psoriasis? This translates to 2 to 3 percent of the total population.
Just like most of the other autoimmune diseases, psoriasis is a chronic disease. This means there is no definite cure but different ways to relieve its symptoms. For those who are looking for a more natural way of treatment, CBD oil has been found to be promising in the medical field as an effective alternative for psoriasis patients.
Psoriasis is a condition of the skin in which T-cells attack existing skin cells at abnormal rates. Normally, we regenerate our skin in 1 month, but when a person has psoriasis, this happens in less than 3 days. This results in too many dead cells on the skin that provoke an itchy, painful and hard skin.
The main problem with traditional psoriasis treatments is that they target only the symptom control, instead of aiming for the root of the problem.
However, recent research on the endocannabinoid system showed that this system is in charge of the regulation of various other systems in our bodies, including the immune system. Some of cannabis’ most famous compounds, like CBD, have the capacity of mimicking the endocannabinoids and influence the endocannabinoid system by interacting with the cannabinoid receptors.
Therefore, scientists have put CBD in the spotlight, given it has shown to be effective both for targeting the psoriatic symptoms and the disease itself. Besides its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD oil can also target the immune system, turning it into a promising and natural medication form.
If you’re looking to use CBD as an alternative treatment for psoriasis there are a few things to keep in mind: when you ingest CBD, you will be addressing the internal pathology of the immune system. For this, it’s recommendable to take CBD tinctures or capsules. At the same time, make use of CBD topicals if what you’re looking for is to target the external affections on the skin.
Pay attention to the doses of CBD, which range from 5 to 10mg, two or three times a day for adults, adding several topical applications per day.
If you’re looking to make the medication as natural as possible, you could make your own at home by growing your own CBD plant and then using the harvested flowers to turn them into oil, lotions, tea, or any other types of consumption methods that appeal your eyes. The only thing to get you started would be purchasing some pots, a few autoflowering seeds, which are easier to grow for first-time growers, and some extra gardening tools. And don’t worry if this is all too new for you, and you’re feeling a little anxious about buying cannabis seeds, there are a couple of seeds banks around the globe, such as Fast Buds, where you can make an order online and receive a ‘secret’ shipping, where no one will be able to tell what’s inside. However, nowadays most people are changing their minds about the medical use of cannabis, and anyway, it’s your life to live and no one can tell you what choices to make. There is nothing shameful in the use of marijuana as a natural alternative to treat your disease, and besides, fools are the ones who refuse to change their minds.
