Cannabis and Vitamin D

Cannabis Could Be the New Super Ingredient in Skin Care
CBD creams are coming out in many different industries. It’s not really a surprise that there’s
some correlation between CBD creams and a reduction in psoriasis symptoms.
The potential for topical CBD
treatments doesn’t end with acne. They
may also help people with psoriasis get
relief with minimal side effects.
Skin care is in, and the beauty industry
is on the lookout for the next natural,
plant-derived super serum.
Cannabinoids, or CBD, are a chemical
compound found in marijuana, and they
might be the ideal ingredient.

Vitamin D Could Provide Psoriasis Relief for Patients
Sunlight has long been known to aid in reducing the effects of psoriasis in those of us that are
afflicted with the disease. This new study shows that it may go one step further and actually
help by increasing the vitamin D levels in the body.

chronic inflammatory skin condition
Psoriasis is a relatively common
condition, affecting an estimated two to
four per cent of the population. It is
characterised by reddened, raised, scaly

on the elbows, knees and scalp but can
affect any part of the body. Psoriasis can
develop at any age and tends to be a lifelong condition. For many people, it fluctuates in extent
and severity, and can be challenging to manage despite the array of treatments on offer.
The Massey University study aimed to determine whether vitamin D supplementation improves
psoriasis when compared with those taking placebo capsules. Dr Michelle Ingram, who conducted
the research as part of her PhD in Nutritional Science says, “This study was partly motivated by
observations that some people with psoriasis report a reduction in symptoms during the summer
months, when vitamin D production in the skin is usually at its highest. Vitamin D incorporated
into a cream or ointment is also a relatively effective treatment for psoriasis, yet no one had
looked into whether vitamin D supplementation might be of similar benefit.”

the skin that develop from years of exposure to the sun – the light emitting textile is said to “be
able to treat and even cure a number of skin complaints such as acne, Paget’s disease, psoriasis,
