I’ve had issues with psoriasis on our elbows as well as knees for approximately thirty years.
When the skin condition first showed up, I thought it was something that would go away on its own.
I treated it with over-the-counter ointments targeted at eczema. Eventually, when the redness, itching as well as scales worsened, I went to the doctor as well as I was took care of with psoriasis. I’d never heard of the disease before. There is no known cause or cure for psoriasis. I am fortunate that the rash is restricted to our elbows as well as knees. Prescription medications for psoriasis are seriously high-priced as well as only temporarily effective. Any relief is short-lived. I was resigned to dealing with the discomfort, pain as well as embarrassment of it when a friend of mine advocated I try cannabis. At that time, I wasn’t aware that cannabis was effective at treating anything but chemotherapy symptoms. I didn’t realize there are a wide range of consumption methods as well as possibilities that cause no psychoactive effects. When I visited the dispensary I was completely amazed at their selection. I consulted with the budtender who proposed a combination of topicals as well as tinctures that are high in CBD, include CBN as well as are low in THC. The topical ointments are applied directly to the psoriasis. The tincture is sited under the tongue as well as absorbed into the bloodstream. I am able to treat the psoriasis from the inside as well as outside. While our knees as well as elbows are so badly scarred that the skin will typically be slightly discolored, the cannabis products have eliminated the itching, soreness as well as redness. Because it is a natural remedy, there are no harmful side effects.
