Skin Disorders encompass non-melanoma cancer, eczema types of autoimmune issues, and other causes of inflammation.
Non-melanoma skin cancers are one of the most common cancers diagnosed, with easy diagnosis and treatment. Treatment includes tools to shave off the cancerous tissue, using a topical electrical current to stop bleeding and zapping the remaining cancer cells.
Eczema, also called dermatitis depicts a group of non-contagious, inflammatory, typically itchy skin conditions including atopic dermatitis and irritant or allergic contact dermatitis. Treatment is to remove irritation and reduce immune response with topical or oral corticosteroids.
- Skin irritations
- Irregular spots
- Sometimes blister formation
How Cannabis Can Help
CB1 and CB2 receptors, cannabinoids, and anandamide have diverse mechanisms underlying non-melanoma skin cancer pathologies. All three compounds (WIN-55,212-2, JWH-133, and AEA) were tested successfully against skin cancer cells in vitro (cell cultures). 3 Terpenes: Limonene, β-caryophyllene and phytol showed potential efficacy in the lab. Preclinical research shows activating CB2 skin receptors are anti-inflammatory, lessens itching, and have anti-microbial benefits.
