Psoriasis and atopic dermatitis positively respond to CBD
The March/April 2019 publication of La Clinica Terapeutica, an Italian peer reviewed scientific journal has concluded that: "The topical administration of CBD ointment, without any THC, is a safe and effective non-invasive alternative for improving the quality of life in patients with some skin disorders"
For massage therapists or spa owners holding back on offering CBD massages, using Nature's Sentry organic CBD oil in a jojoba oil carrier base, allows the client to purchase the entire bottle and so can continue using the oil at home following the massage. The client will need to come back to you for any refill as Nature's Sentry is not available online or at regular stores. You can speak with your clients about how topical CBD is being shown to improve psoriasis and atopic dermatitis lesions without any allergic reactions reported as seen in this brand new, albeit small study.
If you are interested in trying Nature's Sentry and your massage therapist doesn't carry it, please ask them to contact us. We only sell directly to spas and massage therapists.
Here is the full study. Clin Ter. 2019 Mar-Apr; 170(2):e93-e99. doi: 10.7417/CT.2019.2116.
To investigate the therapeutic effect of CBD-ointment administered on severe skin chronic diseases and/or on their outcome scars.
A spontaneous, anecdotal, retrospective study of 20 patients with two most frequent skin disorders: psoriasis (n: 5 patients), atopic dermatitis (n: 5) and resulting outcome scars (n: 10). The subjects were instructed to administer topical CBD-enriched ointment to lesioned skin areas twice daily for three months treatment.
Based on skin evaluations (hydration, TEWL, elasticity), clinical questionnaires (SCORAD, ADI, PASI), and supported by photographic data and investigators' clinical assessment, the results showed that topical treatment with CBD-enriched ointment significantly improved the skin parameters, the symptoms and also the PASI index score. No irritant or allergic reactions were documented during the period treatment.
