Ridding My Rash With CBD

Last updated: June 2018

I acknowledge that I am fortunate that I don’t experience the rash associated with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis often. However, when it does present itself, it does so with a vengeance. I could deal with the unsightliness, but the pain and burning experienced from it could drive a person mad. In the past, I have treated these rashes with either prescription or over the counter creams, lotions, and sprays. While they all reduced or eliminated the pain and burning, the duration of that relief was not long and I had to reapply often. In addition, it would often take weeks for a rash to clear up. My latest flare up was on my scalp. Not thrilled with the thought of suffering from this on my head for weeks, I decided to try something different, CBD, a compound in cannabis that has medicinal benefits without the high that is associated with THC.

My favorite CBD product

My favorite CBD product is The Fay Farm’s Healing Hemp and CBD lotion. This organic lotion was created to help those who suffer from psoriasis, eczema, and more. The relief I experienced was immediate and long lasting. Instead of having to reapply several times a day I only needed to do so twice, once in the morning and again before bed. While that alone was impressive, it was how quickly the rash cleared that has made this product my favorite. Instead of weeks, my scalp cleared up within one week.

I am not sure if this particular CBD lotion only worked because of the other ingredients it is combined with or not because I have yet to try other CBD lotions for this purpose. However, I have a cabinet filled with different CBD products and plan to experiment with them in the future. As a reminder, I am just sharing my experience and not offering medical advice.
