How Much CBD For Psoriasis?

Key Takeaways

  • Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease needing long-term care. Psoriasis flares become worse during periods of stress.
  • CBD may help due to its influence on the immune system and ability to counter stress.
  • CBD must be a part of the long-term psoriasis management strategy, and one should not take it more than what FSA recommends.

Psoriasis is a complex autoimmune skin disorder causing skin rashes that do not often respond to various medications. Though psoriasis mainly causes skin issues, in some, it might cause arthritis or joint pain. It is a good idea to consider CBD oil for psoriasis due to its safety profile.

Psoriasis often has a very unpredictable course. It might not kill, but it is a significant aesthetic problem and causes much distress. Prolonged psoriasis might cause some other health issues, and it also significantly increases the risk of mental health disorders like anxiety and depression.

In more severe cases, it may even cause disease of the heart and prolonged swelling and stiffness of joints. People living with the condition are more likely to develop certain kinds of cancers, kidney disease, liver issues, and more. So, it is not a condition that can be neglected.(1)

Doctors often treat the condition with strong immune-suppressing medications. However, such medications are highly toxic.

Although it is a chronic condition, the condition is characterized by periods of worsening disease and relative calmness. During remission, people need to take medications to prevent its attacks, and during worsening symptoms, one needs to control symptoms. CBD is good for both preventing its attacks and countering symptoms.

How To Use CBD Oil for Psoriasis

There are few clinical studies showing that CBD can help alleviate some of the signs and symptoms of psoriasis.(2) Therefore, it is right to consider CBD for psoriasis.

However, many questions come to mind when a person has decided to use it to reduce psoriasis. People want to know the dosage of CBD oil for psoriasis, and what CBD oil is good for psoriasis.

When it comes to using CBD, though most CBD oils are good, one should only buy high-quality and well-tested products proven to contain CBD. One may start with CBD oil made using CBD isolate. However, it is better to consider broad-spectrum CBD or full-spectrum CBD.

Broad or full-spectrum CBD are better for controlling inflammation, reducing skin scaling, and preventing itchy skin. This is because these products contain minor cannabinoids, which results in a more potent action due to the entourage effect. Full-spectrum may be especially good for some due to its small THC content.

One more thing that people might consider is using CBD oils rich in terpenes. Most high-quality CBD oils sold on CBD Oil King are enriched with terpenes. Terpenes combine very well with CBD, especially for managing autoimmune disorders. Terpenes are potent antioxidants and immuno-modulators. There is not just a synergy between CBD and terpenes; terpenes also add to the entourage effect.(3)

When it comes to CBD oil dosage, one should always follow FSA guidelines. This means that in most cases, 10 mg a day is good. This dose is safe for prolonged daily use. However, according to the doctor’s recommendation, one might use higher dosages for shorter periods.

It is vital to remember that consistency in using CBD oil for psoriasis is more important than dosage. Even a small dosage would work if one takes it regularly. Exceeding the recommended dosage may cause side effects and not result in greater benefits.

Additionally, those who vape might also consider CBD vape pens. However, we do not recommend that people start vaping to manage psoriasis. If you do not vape, then better use CBD oils for sub-lingual use.

I would recommend using CBD consistently in small amounts to reduce skin itching and anxiety. However, it should not be considered a replacement for medications. It is one of the helpful tools.

The Bottom Line

Psoriasis is challenging to control. CBD is not a psoriasis cure or treatment, but it can help reduce psoriasis-related distress, skin itching, swelling, anxiety, and more. It may also help by enhancing sleep quality. So, using CBD consistently may help with psoriasis.
