There are many articles on how to stop skin inflammation. Experts recommend different solutions, from dietary changes to medicated topicals. Even so, for many people, these inflammatory skin conditions persist and return again and again. Here, we look at the natural benefits of CBD and plant medicine to relieve and heal inflammation of the skin so you can move on with your life.
Skin Inflammation is an Immune Response
From psoriasis to eczema, skin inflammation is an immune response in the body. The immune system is responsible for maintaining the health of all the tissues in the body.
If stress, extreme temperatures, an imbalance of gut bacteria, or allergens may be contributing to your eczema, dermatitis, or psoriasis, eliminating those causes can help stop the skin inflammation while you also treat it topically.
To support the body healing the causes of Skin inflammation the immune system must be supported to change things internally making way for healing to occur.
CBD Helps the Immune and Nervous Systems Find Balance
Why would CBD be effective against skin inflammation? So many reasons!
CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory that supports the nervous and immune systems. It has the unique ability to interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Because these receptors are found throughout the central nervous system, immune system, and organ systems, CBD helps balance the body's internal functions.
The ECS controls our mood, emotions, pain perception, memory, appetite, body temperature, hormone secretion, and other physiological and psychological processes.
However, the ECS works on-demand and produces cannabinoids when we need them. It does not store any for later and can become deficient, which compromises the balanced functioning of our systems and organs.
CBD signals the ECS to produce more natural cannabinoids and keeps them active and circulating longer by inhibiting the enzyme that breaks them down.
Eczema and dermatitis refer to a wide array of inflammatory skin conditions. The terms are sometimes used interchangeably.
A 2014 research review confirmed several studies showing CBD's ability to benefit patients with multiple skin conditions, including dermatitis and eczema. This review looked at numerous studies over several years that all showed benefits.
