Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, which means it causes the sensation of getting high that’s often associated with cannabis. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of cannabis or other side effects related to some pharmaceutical drugs. Although CBD hemp oil shows effectiveness in beauty products, such as with anti-aging, the elements in hemp oil hold promise in the treatment of a number of more severe skin conditions as well. Researchers have seen promise in using cannabinoids to treat psoriasis through immune system regulation effects. Like with eczema, researchers are unsure of the exact causes of psoriasis. It is thought to be linked to problems with the immune system, specifically white T cells in the blood. This also may include:
- Pain relief
- Reduction in inflammation
- Alleviation of cancer-related symptoms
- Heart health benefits
Before you use a CBD product, talk with a healthcare professional to discuss appropriate dosing and any other questions you may have.
If you do decide to use a CBD product, choose one that has been third-party tested for quality and purity. View Blue Botanicals lab results here.
