Treating Rosacea With Medical Marijuana and the Best Strains For It.
Treating Rosacea with Medical Cannabis
Can cannabis help treat Rosacea?
Recent findings have suggested that medical marijuana can be effective in the treatment of rosacea and it doesn’t matter whether it’s oral consumption or topical application.
The fact that the cannabinoids in medical cannabis have anti-inflammatory properties have made the plant patent for the treatment of rosacea, a condition characterized by inflammation. A study that was conducted in 2013 revealed that THC, one of the cannabinoids in medical marijuana was effective in reducing allergy-related inflammation. This therefore implies that medical marijuana is essential for treating inflammatory skin disorders.
Medical marijuana has also been reported to be effective in treating anxiety and depression, which are also some of the characteristics of rosacea. A 2012 study had reported that CBD, a cannabinoid in medical marijuana could be effective in treating anxiety and depression. Although this finding was based on another mechanism through which CBD benefits the endocannabinoid system, the findings could still apply to anxiety and depression caused by other conditions such as rosacea.
Moreover, there are also indications that medical marijuana could also treat other symptoms and consequences of rosacea, including sleeping problems as well as mental and emotional stress. Well, it is evident that there is more anecdotal evidence that medical marijuana could help sufferers of rosacea than empirical evidence. Thus, there is a need for more research on the subject.
