suggest products for psoriasis


Hi there! Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin condition which leads to an overproduction of skin cells called keratinocytes. The immune system mistakes components of the body's own skin as pathogens, such as a virus or harmful bacteria, that need to be removed from the body. This autoimmune reaction leads to inflammation and an overproduction of skin cells called keratinocytes, resulting in scaling, itch and pain.

The endocannabinoid system is the body's own naturally occurring network of receptors and cannabinoids which is involved in several bodily functions — immunoregulation being one of the most important and extensively studied. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3044336/ Several studies have shown that the endocannabinoid system is intricately involved in downregulating an overactive and/or self-attacking immune reaction. This knowledge has led to breakthroughs in treating conditions such as traumatic brain injury and Parkinson's disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3044336/

In fact, the phytocannabinoids THC, CBD, CBN and CBG have all been found to inhibit keratinocyte proliferation in hyper-proliferating keratinocyte cell lines, such as those found in psoriasis. http://www.jaad.org/article/S0190-9622(17)30308-0/fulltext

Further, several studies have showed that both endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids can directly treat the symptoms of psoriasis such as pain and itch. http://www.jaad.org/article/S0190-9622(17)30308-0/fulltext https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2338256

And finally, cannabis can treat the the lost sleep, anxiety and depression most psoriasis patients experience. Beyond helping the patient better cope with the emotional toll psoriasis can cause, improving sleep and lowering depression and anxiety can also reduce the frequency of psoriasis flare-ups.

Considering the above, I recommend that you seek "whole plant" products such as those below. Please consult with a qualified cannabis doctor so that she may tailor an appropriate regimen for your specific needs. https://papaandbarkley.com/product/releaf-balms http://kivaconfections.com/products/bars/ginger http://kivaconfections.com/products/bars/espresso https://treatwellhealth.com/product/3to1/ https://treatwellhealth.com/product/20to1 https://getsweetreleaf.com/product/extra-strength-sweet-releaf/
