Cannabis Use to Treat Eczema and Psoriasis

Many people that use cannabis to help with eczema and psoriasis. Marijuana helps with skin irritations by reducing inflammation. One third of the world population is thought to suffer from eczema.(Source)

Hemp seed, rich in linolenic acid (both α- and γ-), has shown benefits for reducing inflammation.(Source) Gastrointestinal problems have shown to increase skin problems. When the intestinal tract fails to absorb linolenic acid it is thought that skin abnormalities occur. Studies have shown that cannabis helps with gastrointestinal issues.

Auto immune deficiency can lead to skin abnormalities. Cannabis increases overall body immunity by being rich in globulin edestin. Immunity is increased by how it effects the endocannabinoid system, anandamide, and the 2-AG receptor.

Many dietary sources are rich in linolenic acid. Cannabis sets itself above the rest by the way it effects the endocannabinoid system. Abnormalities of cells attribute to skin problems. The endocannabinoid system regulates the cell proliferation, death and differentiation to maintain a homeostasis state.
