Reduce the inconvenience of Psoriasis thanks to CBD

What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is one of the most common skin diseases. It affects about 3% of the population and is mainly seen in children and young adults.

Psoriasis sufferers see their skin cells replaced every 3-5 days instead of the usual 28-30 days. This excessive and rapid growth of the epidermal layer of the skin causes red patches, itching, pain. Depending on the case, this desquamation can be localized or, in severe cases, cover the whole body.

Psoriasis is generally considered to be an autoimmune genetic disease triggered by environmental factors. The disease is therefore not contagious. Cold, medications, infections, trauma, physical and psychological stress can play a role in the development of the disease.

Psoriasis is not cured; the various treatments therefore consist of controlling the symptoms and reducing the inflammation. This is where CBD could help.

Can CBD help?

Psoriasis is therefore the result of an immune system that is genetically oriented towards overactivity.

In other words, it reacts to threats to its largest organ: the skin. When this happens, it sends signals to the body to produce a mass of inflammatory substances to protect it.

Skin responds to inflammation by rapidly replacing old cells with new ones, but in an accelerated fashion, causing itching, tingling and pain.

CBD, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, can relieve these symptoms.

How can CBD help?

Cannabidiol binds to the receptors of our immune system and contributes to its functioning, by acting on the endocannabinoid system, which acts on our immune and nervous functions. This system plays a key role in the balance of the different cells in our body.

CBD binds to the CB2 receptor of the endocannabinoid system, which is found in particular in the layers of the skin, inhibits the overproduction of cytokines and can thus relieve inflammatory diseases and autoimmune.

Inflammation is caused by cytokines, one of the main inflammatory signaling substances released by our immune system when under attack, such as an infection. Cytokines are supposed to fight infection and disease, but if there is an imbalance in the immune system (and therefore in the endocannabinoid system), suddenly there are too many cytokines in the body. And it is in this case that a chronic inflammatory state can develop and can cause diseases such as psoriasis.

CBD can work, creating a natural balance between cytokines and other biochemical mechanisms that help regulate the immune system.

CBD is anti-inflammatory

Researchers have found that CBD has anti-inflammatory effects, making it a real, natural treatment option.

The studies on CBD on skin inflammation speak for themselves:"cannabidiol exhibits sebostatic and anti-inflammatory effects on human sebocytess ".

This work shows that CBD has a strong anti-acne effect; it can slow the overproduction of lipids (fats) under the skin, by inhibiting processes that increase cytokine levels.

CBD could therefore help limit inflammation, while helping to reduce the pain felt by people with psoriasis.

CBD can be used to treat the symptoms of psoriasis, but also in a wide range of other autoimmune and immune-mediated diseases caused by an endocannabinoid imbalance, such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes, arthritis and allergic asthma.

CBD has no effect on the psyche; so you cannot find yourself in a daze, as with THC, but simply feel an inner calm that spreads throughout your body.

It is this calm that soothes the immune system and brings the body back into balance.

The presence of endocannabinoid receptors in the skin makes it possible to locally treat a dermatological condition.

CBD can be applied topically as a cream directly to the inflamed area, as well as as an oil.

Daily consumption of CBD oil can also be effective; glands under the tongue can quickly absorb and distribute the beneficial properties of the molecule throughout the body.

In most cases, CBD cream, ointment and oil help damaged skin; the effects depend on the quality of the extract and factors such as age, weight, exercise, diet, etc.

CBD is a 100% natural choice worth trying if you suffer from psoriasis or another anti-inflammatory skin condition.
