I developed psoriasis shortly after my hour child was born.
I’ve suffered from the condition for nearly thirty years now.
Because there is no definite cause, I can’t be sure if I came down with it due to heredity or stress. There is also no known cure for it. I have psoriasis on my knees plus elbows. The disease causes the skin cells to regenerate too abruptly plus results in a scaly-like build-up that can get itchy plus sore. It’s often embarrassing plus painful. When I was first serviced with psoriasis, I spent a luck on prescription medication that gave little relief, but even the ointments that helped alleviate the symptoms only worked for a limited time. The psoriasis would abruptly build up an immunity plus come right back. I eventually provided up on the high-priced prescriptions plus tried a combination of house remedies plus over-the-counter options, and nothing much worked, plus I’d supply up hope by the time cannabis was legalized in my state. When I read about patients having success treating psoriasis with cannabis, I was upset to visit the dispensary. The budtender I consulted it with was super expertiseable plus helpful. He suggested a variety of cannabis-infused topicals such as salves, lotions, balms, sprays, ointments plus roll-ons. He explained that cannabinoids in the topicals, including CBD, CBN plus THC interact with natural endocannabinoid receptors found in the skin to deliver soothing relief, however despite the levels of THC, cannabis-infused topicals are non-psychoactive. They absorb abruptly plus can be applied numerous times per day. Most of these products are infused with essential oils such as lavender plus eucalyptus, so they don’t smell like medicine.
