Cannabis Oil

Since I was 5yrs old

There is a lot on social media lately around people using Cannabis Oil to help psoriasis, do you know anything about this? I have suffered from psoriasis for nearly 40yrs, since I was 5, and have had Psoriatic Arthritis since 21. I have been on numerous horrible meds, Methotrexate, Neurol among others for the psoriasis and the arthritis. I have been reading up on this new treatment and to be honest I think it might be worth ago, unfortunately no idea where I can this from in the UK without the Old Bill nicking me, ha. I would appreciate anyone who has tried this or knows where best to purchase, where it isn't a scam and waste my hard earned cash. Be great to hear peoples comments. Cheers and have a good day wotever your up to. :) Shell

Hi Shell I think you mean CBD which is in exotic plants of the herb kind. You can look up CBD here A lot of strains where grown stronger for THC, the stuff that makes you high, but many people dislike being high or like use weed without being to high, like one would choose how much alcohol is in wine is for them, for instance. But due to probation you can never know how much THC to CBD you're buying. Also CBD has a natural way of reducing some mental illnesses that may or not, be caused by high THC use. Anyway more and more results mainly from the states where weed has become legal and decriminalised. Many of these features for CBD as been known for years on both sides of the coin, Just big pharma can't make money from weed. I smoke a small amount at night to help with itching, pain from arthritis and sleep etc. But CBD is available in the UK from oil's to small amounts you can vape from various places, including amazon. They are finding out more and more uses and treatments. Its useful to keep up to date on the research. If I was you, Please do more research online esp if your new to weed. heres a link to amazon Good luck & all the best, This is my first post here or anywhere online about P.. so will have some Q's of my own soon.. Take care.. Kevin..

Hi Shell,

I have come across some very helpful articles when researching medication to reduce the symptoms of psoriasis.

I found this article to be very helpful when explaining what CBD is and its benefits - 

And this article to give me information directly in relation to psoriasis -

I know that CBD is legal in the UK at the moment, I'm pretty sure you can buy it from health food shops such as this one -

I hope this helps!

Hi Shell,

I've recently bought hemp seed oil (cannabis oil) which I bought on Amazon. It's completely legal to buy as it doesn't contain the THC which causes the high.

I have noticed a change in my psoriasis, I currently have it on my arms, knees face and scalp and it seems to have calmed it down. I'm noticing a lot of the plaques I have now seem to have "healthy" skin in the centre.

I've only had it for a week and I tend to run a warm bath and add coconut oil and about a tbsp of hemp oil. I usually soak in the bath for about 20 minutes.

It's still early days but I am impressed with the changes I've seen so far!

Yep. First post also.

CBT oil works for me. Does seem to need to be 15% or above.

Haypresto no more itching. No more skin falling off. And the psoriasis is getting smaller. Best treatment I've ever tried. I put it direct on my skin at night.

Getting my mother to try it was interesting... Your putting what on your skin?? Interestingly she's now asking me to get her the next bottle.

I'd recommend this to anyone.

Sazy and David - which ones have you bought? Thanks

Sazy - is hemp oil to be taken orally or is it an oil you smear on the skin ?

You can use hemp oil for both I think but it is very expensive - £20 for 10ml and it is supposed to be taken in drops under the tongue twice a day. it is supposedly anti inflammatory and pain relieving.

Holland and Barret have it on special offer until 20 March for half price £9.99 so now is a good time to start trying it. not a nice taste, but you hold the drops under your tongue(no taste) for 60-90 secs then swallow. Most of it should have been absorbed by then. suck a sweet or drink water or juice for after.

You can do both, I haven't tried it orally but I've been mixing it with coconut oil and applying it to my skin.

I bought mine from Amazon. It was £8.99 for 500mls I think, so not too bad.
