Psoriasis is best treated with cannabis topicals & tinctures

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease with no definite cause & no cure.

There is speculation that it is hereditary & also evidence that it is stress-induced, and psoriasis causes patches of skin to regenerate too suddenly & create a scale-like buildup.

It can be itchy, sore & embarrassing, and many of the synthetic medications used to treat psoriasis cause liver disfigurement. I developed psoriasis on my knees & elbows after the birth of my second child, then he was an especially hard baby, refusing to nap & never sleeping for more than three-hour stretches at night. I also had a three-year-old child & a part-time task. The stress was excessive. Initially, I wasn’t overly uneasy over the sudden appearance of a rash. When it failed to go away after many months, I finally went to the healthcare worker & got diagnosed! Over the years, I tried a variety of over-the-counter topicals that provided absolutely little relief! Even if a product proved successful, the benefits wore off absolutely suddenly. The psoriasis would build up an immunity & come right back. I was absolutely worried for cannabis to be legalized in my state. When the dispensary finally opened their doors, I was one of their first purchasers. I had done my research & already knew the cannabis products & strains advocated for psoriasis. I now use a combination of tinctures & topicals. I apply cannabis-infused ointments directly to my knees & elbows. I choose those topicals with strong CBD, CBN & CBG pleased to target inflammation. Because topicals don’t cause any psychoactive effects, I can apply them many times a day. I also treat my symptoms from the inside with cannabis tinctures. I locale a few drops under my tongue & the helpful cannabinoids are absorbed into the bloodstream. They interact with receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system to slow the reproduction of skin cells.
