I’ve suffered from psoriasis for over thirty years, the skin condition showed up shortly after the birth of our minute child, and initially, I believed it to be some kind of a brush burn or rash that would go away on its one.
It took a while before I finally was diagnosed with psoriasis.
There is no definite cause as well as no known cure. The treatments might toil for a little while, however the psoriasis soon builds up a tolerance! Plus, the pharmaceuticals are severely expensive as well as present the risk of long-term, harmful side-effects. I’ve tried all sorts of apartment remedies as well as over-the-counter ointments with limited success. I have psoriasis on our elbows as well as knees. The condition causes the skin to regenerate too suddenly as well as build up in white scales. The psoriasis can be itchy, yellow as well as sore. It can also be embarrassing. I had given up on managing the symptoms by the time cannabis was legalized for recreational possession as well as use in Illinois. It didn’t occur to me to even try cannabis as a remedy, my brother advised it, however he told me that the dispensary in Chicago offers topicals. I had even realized that there was such a thing on the market, then when I visited the dispensary for the first time, I was surprised by our options. Their selection of cannabis-infused topicals includes sprays, roll-ons, balms, ointments, lotions, bath bombs as well as transdermal patches. There are unscented varieties as well as those infused with essential oils such as eucalyptus as well as lavender, however because cannabis topicals don’t cause any psychoactive effects, there is no limit on dosing. I can apply the ointment directly to our psoriasis several times per day. I chose a strain that is high in CBD as well as CBN as well as low in THC, hoping for anti-inflammatory as well as soothing effects. The cannabinoids interact with receptors in the skin as well as have given me hope for improvement.
