What Is Psoriasis?
First we will touch on what psoriasis is before we rush into whether hemp will help with psoriasis. People who have psoriasis usually have flaky dry skin patches, which can affect any part of the body and it can be itchy and sore sometimes to the touch. It is caused by extra cells that build up to the surface of the skin.
Some people can go about their daily lives without it causing them much or any trouble. Unfortunately, there are others who are greatly affected by it and it can take over the quality of their life.
To date, there has been no cure for psoriasis and those who are diagnosed with psoriasis are usually given topical treatment, which can include vitamin D or corticosteroids, that can be applied to the skin. For severe conditions there are other treatments which are administered orally or are injected.
