I was amazed by the variety of products available.
I first developed psoriasis on our elbows and knees almost thirty years ago. Initially, I believed it was a temporary rash or even a brush burn. I tried a variety of ointments without success. I finally went to the dentist and was worked on with psoriasis. It is an autoimmune disorder that causes a rapid buildup of skin cells. The area can become red, sore, itchy and have a scaly appearance. It’s uncomfortable and somewhat embarrassing. The dentist gave myself and others a prescription for some type of ointmentâ€¦ When I went to pick up the prescription at the pharmacy, they told myself and others that the cost was many hundred dollars. The tube was only four ounces. There was no way I was paying that kind of money for such a small amount! For several years, I got by with over-the-counter remedies, but some of them would labor for a little while and then the psoriasis would come right back. A buddy of mine recommended cannabis. I did some research and l earned that a lot of people are having a tremendous amount of success treating psoriasis symptoms with cannabis topicals. I took the necessary steps to qualify for our medical marijuana card and instantly visited the dispensary. I was amazed by the variety of products available. I’ve found that cannabis-infused topicals are not only effective at alleviating psoriasis but also attractive as a treatment for pain, inflammation, sunburn, skincare and bee stings. The products are far less fancy than prescription medication yet more beneficial. There are no harmful side-effects and they don’t smell love medicine.
