Cannabis is working to relieve itching according to new medically reviewed studies . As the skin contains multiple cannabinoid receptors it’s not surprising that these receptors play a role in itchiness and inflammation. In new studies published by the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, cannabinoids that are delivered at the site of itching can cut out the reaction completely. Itching can be caused by a variety of skin disorders including allergic contact dermatitis, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and more. New studies on eczema patients that used CBD cream showed that they were able to stop using their steroid treatments and antihistamines by changing over to a CBD cream.
THC and CBD are common compounds found in cannabis and they both have unique effects on the skin. CBD works at the site to reduce symptoms like itching. THC has also been shown to decrease overall allergic reactions and inflammation by working to tamper down immune system responses.
What this could mean is that many of the oils which contain CBD and THC could have an positive effect on the nature of itching and skin irritants over time. Cannabis can be a wonderful solution for managing inflammation across the body and using CBD oil can be a great way to control the symptoms of irritation over time.
As an added benefit to using cannabis based products, CBD contains powerful antioxidants which can be responsible for promoting the health of cell growth. Introducing these antioxidants could help to overcome various skin problems and make sure that a person will be able to experience a wide range of benefits in overcoming skin issues.
If you are a person that regularly experiences problems with skin conditions, choosing CBD oil or THC oil for your skin condition could be an excellent way to manage these symptoms and help clear up your skin condition quickly.
