Marijuana may help cure eczema, according to researchers

  • Marijuana may be useful in treating symptoms related to skin diseases including eczema and psoriasis, according to research.
  • For marijuana to be used topically and as a potential treatment for health-related issues, researchers are focusing on the four other agents, or cannabinoids, found in the plant – cannabidiol (CBD), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabinol (CBN).
  • But, according to the National Eczema Association (NEA): It has long been observed that cannabinoids possess anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anti-itch qualities with research dating back to the first textbook of dermatology referencing a use for cannabis in treating skin conditions.
  • This relief is partly due to the powerful anti-itch effect of cannabinoids, which interact with receptors in the skin – minimising the common attributes of eczema, most notably itch caused by dry skin, histamine release, and sensory nerve fibres.
  • According to researchers at the University of Colorado, the agent CBD is particularly helpful in curing eczema or the symptoms associatedwith the skin condition – and can be used as a natural alternative to commonly-used steroids.
